Days 542 & 543 – (AD 1,702) – 23.9 + 24.5 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

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 –


Our Orenda Coffee Machine Saga update -

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.
