This morning I decided to increase the resistance on my Schwinn 170 to 18/25. For the past while I have been cycling as 15/25 and 12/25. For some reason the increase in resistance caused me, in the same amount of time, 60 minutes, to pedal an additional mile. I completed 20.5 miles.
My totals are now: Part V – 254.8 miles; Grand – 25,156.4 miles; 40,485.4 kilometers.
Today I have pedaled, virtually, about 85% of the way to my first goal on Mars, the Charleston Crater. I should reach the Crater in about 2 more pedaling days. I think that may be Wednesday next week.
According to WolframAlpha Pro the distance between Chryse Planitia, where I started, to the Charleston Crater, the location of my 1st goal point, is about 300 miles.

And at an estimated, adult size, 25 feet one would think that something this big can still hide away and confound the experts.
I just knew that growing my own peppers would make me rich. (Ya think?) This morning's harvest…
