Free Refrigeration, who knew? Some notes.

 Yes there are parts of the country in the world where the following totally does not apply. Sadly.

HHere in the mountains of utah, I have free Refrigeration that turns out. Who knew? From about midnight until 7:00 in the morning.

And was just a little bit of care that's all I need despite the hot days.

BBetween a small bottom of the line 12 can cooler, and towels and sleeping bags that I have for other reasons, if I harvest that free Refrigeration at 7:00 in the morning, using the insulation just described to keep it cool, I've got what I need for cool drinks, Refrigeration of vegetables so then instead of spoiling it a day they'll last three or four days, oh, and a cool beer at night.


Cycling. It's like pushing a car uphill

  • It's like pushing a car uphill, or coasting. That's it.
  • Leg presses one after another forever.
  • The 2 round places at the top of the pelvis on the back against the seat are our number one friends. Everything goes out from them.
  • The first three inches of the thighs are 80% of the power against that vehicle we are pushing


Most promising cycling developments ever.

 Promising encounter 2 trillion 789.

  • Stability of the pelvis makes relationship to the pedals predictable and without it the legs cannot cycle. If for whatever well intended reason, letting the Torso and the upper body help, or trying to do the job of the legs, you allow the pelvis to move, the legs cannot, cannot, cannot, cannot figure out what to do. 6 years have been lost to this I think. Tho we've learned a lot and gotten good exercise.
  • 100%, 110%, of the responsibility for cycling energy is from the legs.
  • It is also the responsibility of the legs to cycle in such a way that they ask from nothing, for nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, from the waste or the torso.
  • However the waste and the Torso can ask the question and respond, how can we position ourselves that nothing is asked of the waste or the Torso and the legs are empowered?
  • The legs can help themselves a lot by being aware of the mid thighs as an indicator, not a Thrust point, but an indicator and secondarily the feet. By doing so the legs are empowered to seek an amplitude and other minor Corrections that ease and smooth their job.
  • Being aware of the momentum of the mass that is the moving vehicle and torso through space particularly the very lower torso can be extremely empowering of a smooth sustainable rolling action by the legs and feet even encouraging them to decrease in effort so as not to create unnecessary acceleration. Very empowering.
  • And the next day more:
    • Nothing from the back, neither except nor demand anything from the back, other than the center of the pelvis up to the first vertebrae as an object to push against the seat.
    • Do not abuse the legs. Ask nothing more from them than they are able to give at the moment.
    • All movement of the legs, rolling movement, is to be initiated by and completed by the legs. Listen to them and adjust posture of the Torso accordingly. Pay particular attention to being forward enough in that posture that the balls of the feet don't have to go looking for something to push against at any point. Make sure that it's always there for them.
