    Record unemployment numbers and the market goes up. Rising COVID19 death rates and community spread showing up around the world and the market goes up. For the first time in history oil prices dip into negative territory, and the market goes up. Earning projections as we go into earnings season are pessimistic at best, and […]

  • Does the moon effect our ability to make decisions?

    Well, if there is even the smallest element of “guessing” when we make decisions, then the answer is yes. Take a look at this plot below. This shows the average effect size per trial based on 5677 ARV trials over a period of 13 years. You can read more about what an ARV trial is […]

  • Thought Power

    On March 14, 2013 I produced this 20 minute video describing my theory on how associative remote viewing predicts the future. As I have said before, it is my opinion that we don’t “predict”, we “effect” via retro casual micro psychokinesis, or “retro-PK” for short. There is plenty of statistically valid evidence that we can […]

  • Iditasport 100 km winter ultra. I won!

    On Feb 19, 2019 I actually won the 100 km Iditasport Ultramarathon in some 30 hours. BRUTAL is all I can say. I won because all other runners DROPPED OUT. The conditions were very difficult. Recent new snow + warm temperatures made for mashed potatoes. I ran about half the race in snow shoes – […]

  • Susitna 100 mile winter ultramarathon

    I ran almost the whole first 70 miles then slowed to a fast walk for the rest. The cold was crazy. -28 C on the river at night – imagine: alone, so dark, -28, vast open frozen plane, full-on northern lights in the sky, beats headphones full volume. And I’m dressed like I’m in outer space – but warm and still running. Magical.

  • re-attempt update

    I’ve been pouring over maps and the Guinness rules trying to figure out how to solve 2 problems: I need a large lake to plot a large course without tight turns so I don’t lose distance and speed as I make my way around the turns multiple times an hour. This rules out Glenmore reservoir […]

  • Flexible Routes

    The flexible routes concept is made from 10 straight segments that connect physical landmarks (docks). Each segment has a total length as determined by a professional surveyor. I am given credit for traveling any complete segment during the 24 hours, and can only travel the segments shown on the below map. However, I am able to connect the […]

  • Plan for a re-attempt

    I calculated the total cost of factors that decreased my average speed to be worth about .335 kph This is to say, that my actual 10.18 kph ave speed estimation for 24 hours based on Thursdays record run on Glenmore reservoir *could* be as high as (10.18 + .335 = 10.515 kph) without the impediment of these costs. The factors that caused my […]

  • 24 hour record attempt, 2017

    What does it take to break a world record? 1. A custom made carbon fiber hull from one of the best racing hull composite guys I know from Kansas city Yancy Scroggins 2. World class human powered boat engineered by *the* industry pioneer from down-under Rick Willoughby 3. About a year of boat fabrication by […]

  • Record attempt progress & Guinness rules

    I put in a 7 hour training day on the reservoir on Sunday with really encouraging results. I was able to average 10.5 kph over 6 hours on exactly 120 watts in variable conditions from 8″ waves and 15 kph winds to reflective ripples and calm. I’m thinking that if I can guarantee perfectly calm […]

  • record attempt course options

    Probably the single most significant factor in my ability to go father than 249 km in 24 hours (a new world record) is my choice of water course. And with a course, there are 6 considerations shown in order of importance, with the importance of each factor shown as an approximate percentage: Water surface condition (40% important) My speed […]

  • First open water speed test for new 24 hour record boat “Libby”

    Yes, I’ve decided to name this new boat “Libby” after my mom who passed away almost 1 year ago. She always taught me that I could do anything I set my mind to, and I thought I would honor her by naming my new human powered record attempt boat after her. And after this speed […]

  • First Hyperlight open water test

    So this turned out to be a much better test than I thought it would be. Thanks to the good folks at Allen’s Trout Farm, we are able to test the new boat in one of their trout ponds that doesn’t freeze over because the water is constantly circulated. Because this pond was quite long, […]

  • Holy Flying Stabilizer Batman!

    Holy Flying Stabilizer Batman! I finally succeeded in getting a foil to controllably lift one stabilizer out of the water and ‘fly’ it a couple of inches above the water without either of the stabilizer floats touching the water surface with a new high-lift foil. The foil was mounted to my control arm, and I […]

  • Foil Tests

    I just got off the phone with a very nice fellow from Holland who felt compelled to phone me and let me know that he thinks that adding a hydrofoil to my human powered boat would really work for me. He actually contacted me for another human powered boat reason, but I thought it was […]
