Days 11 to 15 (Day 1834) – 5 Days 124.1 Miles on my Schwinn 170

Good Day,

I’ve consolidated 5 days of cycling on my Schwinn 170 together for this post. I cycled 124.1 miles over the 5 days. And since December 2, 2012, I have now cycled 1,834 days. I want to say that this is now a habit.


Here is my current location.



I have cycled on my Schwinn 170 40,150.0 miles over 1,834 days. Based on my calculations I now have 9,850.0 miles remaining to reach my overall goal of 50,000 miles.

Something to think about –

I decided to clean out the master walk-in closet.

I entered to closet. Looked around.

I took a wire hanger for the wardrobe rod. I put the wire hanger in the garbage can.

I closed the closet door.

I finished cleaning the walk-in closet… for today.

Supper last night -

Chili Shrimp, Rocket and Peas Pasta with Dark Cherry Coconut Lime Dump Cake.




Quilts SB –

We’ve finished 2 new quilts. Once delivered, I’ll be posting pictures and journalizing them on our Quilts SB.

Our TWO-MEN exhibition will continue at the Mirella Cimato Art Gallery in St. Petersburg through the end of June.

Days 9 & 10 (AD 1829) – 50.8 miles Cycled on my Schwinn 170 – I Have Now Topped 40,000 Miles

Good Day,



On Monday and Tuesday, I pedaled 50.8 miles on my Schwinn 170. As Grandpa is taking care of 2 grandsons for the next 2 days, I figure my cardio exercise will be taken care of.





To date in South Africa I have pedaled a total of 243.6 miles. Overall on this planet, Mars, and Africa, my total mileage is now 40,025.9. Only 9,974.1 more miles to go.

Our Orenda Coffee Machine Down-Date

This morning we decided to retire our Orenda Coffee Machine.

After 450 cups of coffee, at 96¢ a cup, it appears that the Orenda Coffee company may have pulled some real snafu.

1st, the Orenda application stopped working. I am now longer able to control the Coffee Machine from my iPhone. When I tried to reboot the app, I was informed that my account no longer existed. I contacted, via email, the Orenda company.

2nd, I received no reply or response.

On June 2nd, yesterday I received an email from Orenda.

"Orenda Follow-up Update #2.

(I'm still waiting for #1.)

Hi Jim,

Hope this update finds you well.

(What a crock!)

To solve all the problems that we have discussed for everyone, it's necessary for us to complete the fundraising process.

(This translates to the fact that they cannot keep up with production requests.)

We met many investors who suggested that we start anew without honoring the promise of refunds.

(I never asked for a refund once I received our Orenda Coffee machine.)

It would have been easier to say, but that would defeat the purpose.

(What purpose?)

We have learned a lot and will continue to focus on making right."

(What a bunch of unmitigated BS.)

La, de, da, de, da, de, da...

This morning we started using our new Mr. Coffee One-Touch Machine.

Damn, the 1st Latte was good and hot!

Day 8 (AD 1827) –Sunday on my Schwinn 170 - Jim’s Trek VII – Today 25.6 Miles

Good Day,

Today I pedaled 25.6 miles on my Schwinn 170 .



This morning I headed south. I was able to reach Cape Agulhas, the southernmost point in in South Africa. The Cape marks the boundary between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

I then retraced my path and headed what appears to be north. I am now on R319.




To date in South Africa I have pedaled a total of 192.8 miles. Overall on this planet, Mars, and Africa, my total mileage is now 39,975.1. Only 10,024.9 more miles to go.

Tonight, we’re having a 2nd Thanksgiving at our house. The Turkey is roasting in the oven right now. The house is filled with the aroma of pavo/dinde/peru/tacchino.
