One of the downsides of having Tubeless Fat Tires is that it's nearly impossible to re-inflate them if you get a flat on the side of the road, but it seems a bit of Rubber Cement can solve that problem.
I've found that adding a bit of Rubber Cement to the outside of a Split-Tube (or Ghetto Tubeless) setup seals the seams well enough to allow for a standard air pump to re-inflate it. This at least works if the tire goes flat while stationary, though I have not tested it on a flat that occurred while riding.

In this segment of Crypto Gaming with Cahlen Lee, I show you one of my favorite games on the EOS Blockchain... Texas Hold 'em!
There are several options for playing Texas Hold 'em to earn the EOS Cryptocurrency, but PokerKing is my favorite at the moment. The interface is simple, it uses very few of my blockchain resources, and it seems to have the most active players.
At the moment, this is the 2nd most lucrative Crypto Game for me, and helps me to pay for my dedicated server, Amazon Gift Cards and Gold & Silver Coins.
Get in touch with me ([email protected]) if you need help creating an EOS Wallet so that you can play.

Today on Ask Cahlen I will be answering the question, "Why will Cryptocurrencies ultimately fail?"
While I believe Cryptocurrencies are worth investing in the short-term, I suspect that they will ultimately fail in the long-term due to catastrophic loss of the electrical grid they rely on.

Today on Ask Cahlen I’ll be answering the question, “What do you eat?”
I have a feeling the person asking this question is specifically curious about what I eat when I’m living nomadically on my Solar eBike, but my diet is a little different now that I’m living in a cabin in the mountains, so I’ll describe both situations.
When living nomadically I’m focus on compressing as much food into as little space as possible. In the morning I drink Hot Chocolate with Coconut Oil, Cacao Powder and Xylitol to keep me in ketosis and gain many of the benefits of intermittent fasting. For dinner I usually have either white rice or oats cooked with salt and Coconut Oil. For my daily greens I rely on tablets of Spirulina and Chlorella which provide me with a huge number of different necessary vitamins and nutrients.
My diet is pretty similar when living a more stationary life, with a few differences. I still drink the Hot Chocolate in the morning, which contains over 1000 calories of fat. For dinner I generally eat white rice or sweet potatoes with vegetables fried in coconut oil. I also will eat eggs and grass-fed butter.

Today on Ask Cahlen I'm answering the question, "Yes or no?"
The person who asked this made sure to clarify that it was a serious question and so I'll go ahead and answer it and say, "Yes and no." The reason I say that is because I believe, to steal a phrase from George Kavassilas, this is a universe of contrasting expressions.
Now I don't think all universes are necessary like this but it definitely seems to be that our universe is. So just a few examples... You can't have up without down. Without down up wouldn't make any sense. In order for up to exist you have to have the opposite of it which is down. The same would be true of light and dark. You can't have dark without light. Dark is the absence of light and so in order for darkness to exist there has to be something called light.
So there's lots of different examples of that. I'm sure you could think of many more and I think that's basically how the universe works. Even when getting into physics and stuff like that there's the electron and then there's the proton which seem to be opposites of each other, and then even the electron itself has an opposite other than the proton which I think is called a positron which is basically the inverse of what an electron is doing. Even if you think about just the wave, and everything in the universe is essentially energy which is just vibration, and vibration is going back and forth between two opposites.
So that's that's what how I understand the universe to operate, and so if the question is just, "Yes or no?" then I have to answer, "Yes and no." I hope that was useful! I'm not sure what the question was aimed at.
If you'd like to ask any other question you can go to http://ask.cahlen.org. You can search to see if I've already answered the question, and if I haven't you can submit it there I'll get an email and I'll answer it as soon as I can.

Today on Ask Cahlen I'm answering the question, "Why did you stop living in a yurt?"
So for those of you don't know, I spent a decent amount of time, about a year and a half maybe two years, living in a structure called a yurt. The first one was actually a Mongolian Ger which is the same thing as a Yurt just from Mongolia, and it has a kind of a unique structure to it, and then the second one I had was one that actually owned myself which was from a company called Camping Yurts (campingyurts.com).
So I lived in that for quite a while and I definitely really liked it, and the reason that I got out of that situation was because I was living on the permaculture farm kind of near where I was working when I was a producer in the gaming industry near Seattle. I quit that job because I wasn't interested in supporting that industry anymore and I wasn't really happy with the way I was living.
I kind of planned to stay on the permaculture farm for a little while, but it got to the middle of the winter and everything was really wet and the Yurt was getting a little bit moldy and I was getting sick from that, and I basically just said, "Well I'm out of here," and I packed up all my stuff, put the yurt into storage, and I got in my truck and I drove off. I drove to Arizona where it was still 70 degrees in the middle of the winter and just kind of camped out in the middle of nowhere for a few weeks, and I just decided that's what I wanted to do, and I kept doing that for over a year.
Nowadays I'm trying to set down some roots and become part of the small mountain community. It just seems like an important part of life and if you're moving around too much then you kind of miss out on that.
So this is one of my favorite places to hang out. I can drive up here on my solar electric bike and see there's a little cave behind me that I like to hang out at. So this is kind of my life now and that's why my left Washington and now I'm just roaming around basically.
So if you'..
Today on Ask Cahlen I'm answering the question how did the Camping Yurt hold up.
So for those of you who don't know, there was a period of time probably a year or two ago where I was living on a permaculture farm in a yurt. I bought it from the company called Camping Yurts (campingyurts.com) which is a company which makes yurts which are very portable, so it's easy to pack them into your car and take them on a short trip. I was actually using it as a permanent structure and I lived in it for probably over six months to almost a year, I can't remember for sure.
So basically the question is how did how did it hold up, and it held up very well except that I was living in Washington State on the west side of the mountains which is basically a rain forest. It's very damp and I didn't put any sort of foundation like a wood floor down or anything, I just set it down on the bare ground and you're basically guaranteed to get mold in that situation. After the period of time that I was there it had developed mold. I had a vinyl floor and that was pretty covered with mold on the bottom it, but it didn't permeate through because mold isn't gonna go through vinyl I don't think, but there were places on the roof the cloth roof and on the side of wall especially around the door which had started to develop mold.
The structure itself which is the most substantial part of the yurt was actually totally fine and didn't experience any mold, and I don't know if it's just because it's good wood or it was protected from dampness or because I actually I did make a kind of a wood polish that had a bunch of anti mold agents in it. So it could be because of that but the structure is still really good.
I had to throw away all the cloth and I gave the structure away to someone who wanted to make a yurt. What they're gonna do is they're just gonna buy used billboard vinyl which is the stuff he's the big billboards you see on the side of the road those are just large pieces of vinyl whic..
Natural Law is a set of rules inherent to the universe, much like the Law of Gravity, which govern the effects resulting from the free will choices of creatures with the capacity to reason.
Natural Law is known by many other names, such as Moral Law, Karmic Law, God’s Law, etc. Its basic premise is that there is an objective difference between right and wrong, and that while all beings are free to do as they please, they are not free to escape the consequences of their choices.

Today on Ask Cahlen I will be answering the question, “Is wisdom only gained through time?”
In order to answer this question I must first give my definition of ‘wisdom’. To be wise is to act in accordance with Natural Law. This requires the understanding and acceptance of the fact that the universe will always reflect back to you what you put into it. So to be wise means to act in a way which is beneficial to others, for it will ultimately end up being beneficial to you as well.
I believe understanding Natural Law is the default state of any being, and that humanity has lost touch with that through the millions (and perhaps billions) of years that we’ve existed on this planet. I do believe one can get back in touch with that understanding instantly, but suspect it will always take time to incorporate that back into our lives.

Today on Ask Cahlen I will be answering the question, “At what age can someone become a wizard?”
The answer to this question is largely dependent on what someone considers a wizard to be, so I will provide my definition. A wizard is someone who has committed themselves to seeking truth, using it wisely and sharing it with others who have made the same commitments.
With that definition in mind, I would say most people would need to be adults before they have the necessary understanding and experience needed in order to understand what they were doing when making those commitments. However, I image there are rare individuals who are able to do so in childhood.

While I'm traveling on foot with just my backpack I always take my folding solar panel to charge my various devices. It can power anything which uses USB, including my phone, lighter, and lots of other useful toys. I love the feeling of independence that is provided by knowing I can rely on the free energy of the sun to keep my technology running.
Today on Ask Cahlen I am answering the question, "Who is Dean Clifford?"
Dean Clifford was a significant voice in the freedom movement a few years back. He stepped out of the more public view after he was bullied by the system he was revealing. His primary focus was revealing the governments of the world as voluntary membership organizations which give the impression they rule a geographical area by relying on the ignorance of its population. Those who are aware of the scam can step out of it, assuming they are willing to deal with the inconvenience that may come along with it.
Dean Clifford now works primarily behind the scenes on his private membership organization Earth Stewardship Collective (https://earthsc.org) whose mission statement is to provide a better alternative to what governments currently offer.

After 6 days on foot exploring the Jemez Mountains I've decided to head home a day early to avoid long rainstorm which is likely to last several days. In this video I discuss some of the things I learned on this adventure, along with some of the highlights.
Today on Ask Cahlen I will be answering the question, "What was Wardenclyffe Tower?"
Wardenclyffe Tower was an uncompleted project of Nikola Tesla in the early 1900s which was designed to transmit data and energy wirelessly across the planet by utilizing the innate electromagnetic properties of the Earth. If it had been completed, we would have had free energy and wireless internet decades before the 21st century. Unfortunately, JP Morgan canceled the project when he discovered the intention was to provide free energy worldwide.

In this episode of Ask Cahlen I'll be answering the question, "Why did you become a wizard?
I wouldn't necessarily say there was a time that I became a wizard. I feel more comfortable saying that I realized I was a wizard. I see it as one of the many roles in a well functioning society
My definition of a wizard is someone who seeks Truth, uses it with Wisdom and shares it with others wishing to do the same. By that definition there are many wizards in the world, as theoretically any true scientist would qualify. Unfortunately many modern sciencists turn their eyes away from truth by choosing to focus solely on the material world and to ignore the spiritual, so I personally don't view them as wizards.

Welcome to Day 2 of my week long Jemez Mountains adventure! The original plan was to head north towards some caves near a river I know of, but I ran out of water too quickly, and needed come up with another plan. An impromptu trek down an abandoned road ended up working out better than I could have imagined!
Today I set out on foot to explore the Jemez Mountains for a week. This area is actually on the side of an active Super Volcano called the Valles Calderas, one of the biggest volcanoes is the world. My goal is to reach a river valley many miles away on the other side of a mesa made of solidified ash.
If things go really well I'll visit a hot springs and the crater itself before I head home in a week, but this first video is about climbing the mesa and exploring the area near the top edge. I came across some native ruins and some abandoned log cabins near an old quarry.

Currently I pay for my own Dedicated Server using Cryptocurrency I earn through various methods like playing games or posting videos. At one point I was able to live completely off of my earnings, and I think it's likely that will become the case again very soon.
In this video I detail some of the ways I earn Cryptocurrencies like Steem and EOS, and some strategies for continuing to succeed in this ever evolving space.
I was recently asked to to describe the various types of water filters available out there, and how I feel about each of them. I personally prefer Gravity Filters because they use no energy, waste none of the water and clean almost everything bad out of the water. Reverse Osmosis is also good, but a large amount of water is wasted in the process. Distillation is also good, but is very energy intensive, and many people believe its unhealthy to drink water that's completely empty of minerals.
Here's the Gravity Filter that I personally used before I became nomadic, though I also added the Arsenic/Fluoride filters which are usually bought separately:
I've been having a lot of issues with flat tires while riding around on my Fat Tire Solar eBike in the Southwest United States, and have been experimenting with ways to solve the problem. In this video I demonstrate how I converted my tires to a tubeless puncture resistant setup, despite the fact that my rims are not tubeless ready, by cutting open a tube to be used as a rim liner.
Both tires are holding air and I look forward to riding around in the mountains here next week to see how well they hold up on the rough thorny trails.
