Days 568 & 569 – (AD 1,728) – 23.4 + 24.7 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

PC's back in the house. Had to get it from the shop, even not completely fixed. The shop is closed until after Christmas.  And of course, I have too much work to get done in preparation for our Hope - Cranes Quilts - Project on January 10.

Yesterday morning I pedaled 23.4 miles on my Schwinn 170. This morning I cycled 24.7 miles. Totals are now 37,495.3 miles; 60,343.0 kilometers.

I have plotted a new path and goal destination, Ascraeus Mons. I am now located at 81.04%.

Only 706.3 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.

Think of this. I only have about 33 more pedaling days to go and I will reach my total goal of 38,201.6 miles.

Something to think and make sure to do something about –

Supper last night was an excellent Winter Melon Soup with Pork Meatballs.

It is the first time I have ever used Winter Melon. It most definitely will not be the last. https://omnivorescookbook.com/recipes/winter-melon-meatball-soup

Our Cranes Quilts Update -

The transfer of our quilting design is done. We’re using a variegated blue thread in the body of the Monster Crane. The fabric is allowing us to follow a sort-of stippling pattern. We’re using a variable random pebbling on the background, albeit moon, using a close-matching white thread.

Today’s the day we bind our latest Crane Quilt. We have named it “The First, The Last, The Hope, The Journey”. Sort of a mouthful, but it has become the epitome of our Hope Project.

Mark the date of January 12th on your calendars. More details of the showing of our Hope Project to follow.
