    2018 Challenge

    Start: 230 Current: 223 Goal: 180 by May '18 I'm going to do the Atkins again, but I'm not starting until I eat up all the other stuff I have in the house. So far I quit drinking (except for social get togethers) a few weeks ago. Started on the elliptical less than two weeks ago and started cutting down food intake about the same time. I should be able to get started on the Atkins next week. I feel pretty good that I've already lost 7 pounds without officially starting my diet.
  5. I could have swore I posted this in here a couple of years ago but danged if I can find it. Sorry if it is a double post, delete if so. I used a cargo strap to compress the springs to get the top cap off and although it worked I figured I would look for something a little more professional the next time I needed to tear my forks apart. I recently developed a bit of a leak in one of my fork seals so I ordered a new seal and started looking around for a spring compressor. I found several online that ranged from about 50 to about 250 bucks. I found some people who made their own and I decided I would make my own but I made mine a little different than any of the others, or actually a cross between a couple plus my own touch that I didn't see on any of the others. I've been wanting one of those heavy duty long clamp devices which is basically what that 250 dollar compressor used. I figured I could use it in my spring compressor and use it as a regular clamp. So I picked up the clamp for about 30 bucks and about 10 bucks worth of other parts and this is what I ended up with:

    I was just messing around. I did think it was funny when I clicked on JJ's link and saw that though.

    Looks like a great way to save energy! I bet they cut their electric bill in half!

    And I thought jumper cables were only good for DC. I guess that's why I never get any cool ideas like this.

    I decided against the expensive solar panels in favor of this. I wonder if I can get stiffneck to help me hook it up?

    Almost hung himself on the electric wires. It hurts when you land long although usually not as much as landing short. It was great form though.
