Dangerous ride tonight. Arrival by 8:30 if we are lucky.

Nitriding is not recommended, poor visibility. But we've got mechanical problems. The rear Rim blew another tube. Ruined another tire. A bike shop in Memphis a hundred miles ahead Will Repair it on Friday or Saturday if necessary. Pressing ahead.

A large working-class man walked past my table and the check disappeared without a word.

This as James grabbed a quick lunch at the World Class $7 Asian buffet he passed unexpectedly today.
James got up and walked to the cashier counter where the man stood and James offered his hand which the man took. Bless your soul James said. Thank you for what you're doing the man said.

Interesting developments. Scrambling gently with the miniscus of the knee. Or whatever that soft part is called.

Not a badd start today and not great. But not bad. Scrambling was immediately in mind and not rebellion but some difficulty in finding it. 

Item. The up stroke of the scrambling was forgotten for many many minutes. So the scrambling only barely occurred. When the up stroke of each scramble attempt was brought to mind that helped quite a bit. 

Item. Most useful developments came in stages over the course of about the 2nd 45 minutes of the journey. 

 Among the benefits it after a while caused the body to realize that reclining the shoulders way back helps lift the center of this natural scrambling motion up to a midpoint which is far more sustainable and less asymmetric. 

The word struggle and stirring try to intrude and displace scramble and James is resisting this. scramble seems to much more aptly hold on to the ideal of something chaotic but wonderful. And it suggests to James nervous system the advantages of a rapid action as opposed to slower. 

Having said that this stirring with the manicis seems to be sustainable at less then extremely high rpm which is a nice option. 

At least so far today James is attempting to not overstress things. It does not seem like there is a lot of stress or even much stress on the muniscus and the notion of using them to scramble causes a centering by keeping thighs  within boundaries as opposed to reaching out and bumping up clumsily against those boundaries. 

Yes time will telk on all of this. but it certainly seems encouraging in light of all that has been learned these years.  seems certain like an evolution.


Not yet has a person condemned this mission, this grief and outrage response to what we are doing to Children trying to immigrate to this country from the South America we have destroyed. This is shocking to James but correct.

Friday rain. It will be a day of rest or a day of great Danger.

It is very dangerous to try and move Saul in the rain because of no windshield wipers, very poor visibility. It is hoped that the Walmart will be glad for us to stay not just one night for two nights in the parking lot. If so there is a library where the date can be spent catching up on about a dozen overdue post transcriptions and other work.

A better day saul and I never have had. Scrambling To maintain tight relationship with the scrambling knees scrambling to maintain a relationship with the scrambling petals.

Is not an attempt at a word salad here. These words are pretty descriptive of the best day sol n I have ever had. All it would seem due to the concept of scrambling. 

 Over the years James has come close to this kind of productive day with saul And that it was the absence of the concept that scrambling is the ideal

One of the sweetest encounters that James has had in his entire years. Such a privilege. Such a joy.

A month ago a wonderful suggestion came to James by a special T parts supplier that he finally met in Oklahoma City. James, if you had a small electrical generator gas driven then it could open up some substantial avenues for you the friend said. James looked incredulous and rightly the friend said oh, yes I know you're a purist. Well James is not a purist. Not that it would matter but he isn't. And

Hunger strike to stop Global Extinction


Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Clinton, Clinton, Obama, Obama, Bezos, Barr, Biden, McConnell, Musk, Gates,.....

This poor old body. How has it been able to do this? And we can't stop right now. Weather, holiday traffic, the lack of places to stay.

Ready or Not, Mississippi and Ohio rivers here we come.

 By late morning we should know. A local said that the traffic over these Bridges is very low contrary to what another source had said. Hopefully today is source is correct. And encouragingly Google thinks it's okay for a bike. We'll see.

Cycling. Why can't I just have a normal boyfriend?!?! Dear, they don't exist.

 James, if you are looking for a normal way to move sol , or the 400 pounds of you and soul that you move every day for between 4 and 8 hours, if you are looking for a normal sane relaxed understandable way of doing that, well, it doesn't exist. 

And this for the last 5 or 6 days is what you had
