Day 2 – (AD 907) – 22.5 Miles – Jim's Trek Part IV – Continuing on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Yup, I got on my Schwinn 170 again this morning and I pedaled 22.5 miles. The numbers just keep increasing – 19,038.3 miles; 30,639.2 kilometers. This is the real part.

And now for the virtual part of this crazy Trek. This morning I made to and am located at Avenida José Estevão.



It looks like the Atlantic Ocean is on the west and the Ria de Aveiro is on the east, and yes I am heading south.



Countdown – 293 more pedaling days to go.

My blood sugar this early morning registered 94. The 6 point jump, not that it is much, could be because I had two helpings of the “General Tso’s Chicken” I created last night. I used the Simply Asia General Tso Stir-Fry Sauce packet and followed the recipe on the back. (I found the packet at my local Publix. Even though I probably have the majority of the listed ingredients for the sauce in my pantry, I thought what the hell.) Bottom line it was okay but it wasn’t anything like a typical General Tso’s Chicken from the local Chinese restaurant.

Check out the documentary “The Search For General Tso”.  Jiayang Fan writes in The New Yorker – “Searching For America With General Tso”, (March 2015).

It says something about Chinese food in America that it has emerged as a fixture in the traditions of other minorities, most spectacularly on Christmas, when consuming cartons of greasy lo mein is all but codified custom in Jewish households.”  


And if you’ve got 2 ½ plus hours to spare you should check out Steven Mango’s January 2014 YouTube presentation “Inside the Scientology Celebrity Center: An Ex-Parishioner Reveals All”. Very interesting. Yeah Clearwater.  Sis, boom, bah, the cult has bought Clearwater.
