Day 11+8 – (AD 1,173) – 19.8 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – Yesterday On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Yesterday morning I pedaled another 19.8 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals – 25,116.4 miles; 40,421.0 kilometers. Completed 1.62% of Jim’s Trek Part V. And my Two Hundred Sit-ups regime continues; today is Day 1 of Week 3. This is Day +8. This morning was 120 sit-ups, à la Smith; sum to date 713.

Maybe you are wondering why I didn’t write-up my Jim Trek’s blog these past couple of days… (and then maybe you couldn’t care less). But the fact is that our Bright House cable box and router were zapped out of existence by an almost direct lightning hit.

Yup, while I was sitting in the living room; flash, boom. And this is the 7th time that lightning has hit this house in some devious and electrifying way. (Sorry for the play on adjectives.) One would think I should now, after 35 ½ years of living in Florida, be use to the summer thunderstorms. Nope, I’m not…but I am certainly glad that it was only the Bright House items that were destroyed.

My Mars adventure continues. On Day 11+8 I have completed 214.8 miles or 1.62%. I still have 13,085.2 more miles to go.

Soapbox –

Lightning hasn't stopped me from tweaking a reminder.
