World Run I / Reports
Distance today: 35.0 km (Accumulated: 24855.0 km)
35km, 3:23:22h. Excl. food, water, road-finding, toilet etc. stops
Time GMT - 6 hours
+21c, clear and light wind at start.
25c, partly cloudy and same at finish.
- Cell phone problems again !!
Unfortunately the cell phone that I use for transmitting the gps-pictures
live to the website has broken down again. This time much to my own fault
as I dropped it while moving the running gear and the display broke :-(
At the moment we are working as hard as we can to quickly find a
replacement, but most likely I will have to have a new one send in from
Scandinavia as there is a special software system installed in it which
processes the gps-signal to the website. This means that there will only be
the text reports until the unit has been replaced (for the documentation
to Guinness I use digital picture of start, finish and mileage signs
in-between, logbook and witnesses, so that part is not affected).
Hopefully there will soon be a solution as the landscape is just beginning
to change character from the flat cornfields of Indiana and West Ohio to
long green hills and forests which eventually will turn into the
Appellation Mountains. Further I am running through the "Amish Hartland" at
the moment - the area which has the most Amish population. The Amish people
are settlers originally from Europe who at their farms has kept a life
which in many ways is the same as at least a century back: no use of
motorised vehicles (thus they use horse-carriages & bicycles), no
devices etc. At least that is the orthodox version. I have learned that
there are many intermediates; for example using battery driven equipment,
just not laid-in electricity.
- I'd love to share some pictures of that on the website, but at last that
will have to wait until I have a new unit!
Besides this it was a good day where I had competent crewing by Mr. Will
Huff from Canton who did a great job, often driving back to advice of
road-work up ahead or especially difficult parts. Thanks!!
Mr. Huff will crew for me until Monday, but from Minerva to Pittsburgh I
don?t have any crews so far. If anyone has the time to come out to help a
day or two on that stretch I would much appreciate it as its not no
likely that I will have the energy to push the 40kg equipment up the
