Friday morning, I pedaled 23.9 miles on my Schwinn 170. This morning I pedaled another 24.5 miles. Totals are now 36,877.0 miles; 59,347.9 kilometers.
My destination is Ulysses Fossae. As I continue, I am now located at 92.61%.
Countdown continues. Only 1,324.6 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.
Something to think and make sure to do something about –
After waiting approximately 1 year and 1/2 years from Kickstarter payment to delivery, and
after finding out that the printed head office address is a non-existent flash in the pan, and
after initially dealing with some fembots in the company’s customer service department, and
after discovering an extremely low BBB rating, and
after reading the numerous of unsatisfied comments directed at the company, and
after struggling to get the confounded Orenda iPhone application to work, and
after swearing at the machine and realizing that I may have to completely write-off the cost of the machine, and
after losing accessibility to create a cup of coffee, and
after having to create several bogus IDs to get the machine going again, and
after searching online to figure out how to clean the machine, and
after learning how to tweak the makings of a good cup of coffee, and
after 89 cups of coffee, now at $4.88, and
after realizing that the Orenda Coffee machine makes a bloody damn good cup of coffee, and
after knowing that there are only 346 cups of coffee to make, and then the cost of a cup of coffee will only be the cost of the beans, and
after having learned all the idiosyncrasies of using the machine,
I can honestly say, that the Orenda Coffee Machine is one hell of an excellent coffee machine.
