This morning I cycled 19.8 miles on my Schwinn 170. I really cannot believe that I have pedaled 25,731.0 miles; 41,410.1 kilometers.
And did you ever wonder where exactly I’m going on Mars? Hell, I haven’t got any clue, but I figured I would just keep going until I covered the total 13,300 miles.
This morning I have now completed 26.4% of the distance from Wabash Crater to Oxia Colles, my next goal and destination point. And I most assuredly have not chanced upon any other lifeform along the way.
Only 40 days; 9 hours; 52 minutes; and 50 seconds to go, and then 24 hours after that there will be a new President-Elect.
If you were around in 1948, I wasn’t, or if you studied this bit of history in school, just remember this image. From the Chicago Tribune, Sep 28, 2016 by Tim Jones – “Dewey defeats Truman”,
"As a presidential candidate, Gov. Thomas Dewey of New York was not a glad-hander, not a flesh-presser. He was stiff and tended toward pomposity. “The only man who could strut sitting down” was the crack that made the rounds.”Mild compared to the nouns and adjectives batted around these days in the media...and by some of the candidates.
