Day 457 – (AD 887) – 22.4 Miles – Jim's Trek Part III – Bike Path in Barcoongere State Forest on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I cycled 22.4 miles on my Schwinn 170. My totals are now 18,576.3 miles; 28,895.7 kilometers. That’s the real part of my journey.


And today I stopped on a Google-imposed bicycle path somewhere in the south end of the Barcoongere State Forest at Dirty Creek Road. I’m New South Wales in Australia. The Google drag-on icon is still not in place.  This is the virtual part of my Trek.

Countdown – 396 more miles to go. Anticipation.


This morning was remove-the-zipper-day. We now have a used zipper toggle, slightly used for sale on eBay… obo.


I thought I would make some homemade Scrapple. I’ve made some before; ground pork and cornmeal. The batch I made was good, really good…And I then decided to look up the real ingredients for Scrapple.

According to Wikipedia – “Scrapple is typically made of hog offal, such as the head, heart, liver, and other trimmings, which are boiled with any bones attached (often the entire head), to make a broth. Once cooked, bones and fat are removed, the meat is reserved, and (dry) cornmeal is boiled in the broth to make a mush.” Hell, doesn’t that sound appetizing.

Seems that I never made Scrapple. I made pseudo-Scrapple. Mine was closer to Cincinnati Goetta, sort of. And now I have to try and make Goetta. Goetta is made primarily of ground meat, pin-head oats and spices. Well?

Travel update – Sleep Jezebel and Warhol’s Itch at 2:46 am this morning were processed through the sort facility at ISC (USPS) Miami. Birmingham, here we come.
