Payton's unicycle update.

Payton has started to learn how to unicycle without support.

With support(hanging onto my finger) she can go quite a distance, even off of the curb.

without support she can almost get to 2 full rotations.

Paytons Uni

I bought my Daughter her first unicycle. I got it for an great price off of craigslist.
the lady I bought it off of said it was an 18" tire, but it is a 20"

So I had to cut the seatpost and cut down the neck, to make it fit her 21" inseam.

my unicycle progress.

I got a unicycle for father's day and it's fun.
It's also a huge workout. It will probably be less of a workout after I get better balance.

I have only not landed on my feet 4 times so far.but I wonder if I am not riding out when I unconsciously think I am going to I tried and I landed on my knee.

here is a shot I took of myself with the remote, on a parking garage roof.
I had to freemount cause there was nothing to hold on to. I am not good at freemounting most of the shots I got were of the the unicycle about to fly away or me falling off.

One day, Jesus said to his disciples: "The Kingdom of Heaven is like y = 3x2 + 8x - 9."

A man who had just joined the disciples looked very confused and asked Peter: "What on Earth does he mean by that?"

Peter smiled. "Don't worry. It's just another one of his parabolas."

geekdad has expanded "...The 100-Species Challenge to include every living thing we could find and photograph – plants, animals, and indeterminate micro-organisms included."
