A taste of the cold

This year, it’s going to be all about cold showers, and cold exposure to increase my cold tolerance.

I did cold showers a bit over the horridly hot summer of two years ago, seeking relief from the oppressive Willamette Valley sunshine.  I wish I had kept up on it; i could withstand 50 degree well water straight out of the ground for more than 10 minutes without even trying. As soon as the weather turned I gave it up, and forgot about it until recently.

I got a copy of “Becoming the Iceman” recently and it inspired me to star with cold exposure all over again.  If I had the cash I’d sign up for the mini course. That won;t stop me from trying out all kinds of madness on my own 🙂

Here’s Wim talking about how to take a cold shower:

I’ll get into this more when I have some time to write.

A Year of Bio-Hacking

It’s gon’ get REAL around here.


I’ve sold myself to a new plantation, to raise up cash for a new family farmstead.


My health has improved DRAMATICALLY, eating loads of carbs and cutting back on protein/fats.  Low carbing darn near kilt me, and carbohydrates are bringing me back.


So, this year will be all about tinkering. Wim Hof, Ray Cronise, Mike Cernovich, Scott Adams *sorta*, Richard Nikoley and others are inspiring me to get out and into the dirt this year.

Imma gonna chronicle it all here.


It’s going to be good!

More stuff non-food blog related.

I drank too much, ate too much, did not exercise. I feel like I am following the “No S” diet; no sweets, snacks or seconds except for days that start with”S”, only worse 😉

We did the weigh in: I am up 2 pounds, lol. Need to try a little harder. I am adding 2 tbs of coconut oil to morning and afternoon, at 10 and 2 pm.

For weekend food we had obscenely good BBQ grilling; ribs and chicken and salads and loads of fresh fruit 😉

I will be gone the next two days to Tahoe for a work trip and the daughter’s birthday; she turns 21~
