Dual Fuel Bicycle

I spotted this bicycle during my recent travels. As you can see, it has two power system, the pedals and a small engine:

Note that tiny engine mounted on the frame. Here’s a closer look:

There’s a separate chain and rear gear there. Take a look at the other side.

Not sure how powerful that engine is. However, it has to be helpful on the hills. Quite an interesting contraption. Would like to see it run.

Apple Pie Cupcakes

Thanks to The Classic Diner (Malvern, PA, USA), my dessert habit remains in full effect. They recently announced the availability of apple pie cupcakes. These delicious bundles of goodness have an apple pie like filling with butter creme icing drizzled with caramel. Yeah, triple down on the flavor. Here’s a look:

Wow, are the ever tasty! I’ve been rationing myself one per day. May have to make a re-supply run very soon. Enjoy every meal!

Homemade MRE, Menu 2, video

As promised, here is the second installment of Shipwreck Rations. Menu 2 is one that will definitely fill you up. How about buffalo chile, black beans, and rice, plus all the snacks? Check out the video below:

The two flameless ration heater bags are well worth the small extra cost. They heat up the food, making it as appetizing as possible. As mentioned, this menu is great for a cold climate or when you really need those extra calories. Menu 3 is coming soon, and it’s one that would be good for a shelter in place situation, such as your office. Check back often so you don’t miss it!

Just flying along…

One of the joys of VFR flight is cruising along. You get to see everything down there from way up here.

Over Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA.

You can sit back and let the autopilot do most of the work while you take in the scenery. And even in a small airplane, you’re still getting where you want to go at around two nautical miles per minute. Not bad. Not bad at all.
