This page is a log of my adventures – MTB bikes, cars, alpinism. Results of years of experiences to preserve tools I use because good estimate comes with experience and experience comes from bad estimate.
Everything suppose to be made as simple as possible but not simpler.
Simple solutions of my challenges with poorly designed commercial products – they are good for common use but fail horribly for hard-core/heavy-duty use.
I grew up in mountains before I could even walk. I soon observed that everything in Nature must be self-sufficient and in harmony as whole.
I follow this simple philosophy my whole life - if I can't repair my car, I can't drive it; if I can't climb mountains without artificial help, I don't deserve to climb them !!!
Furthermore, everything is as strong as it weakest part. I see so many desperate people to get the best this or that but whole system is weak and suboptimal. The best system is an optimal system, even if you have less horsepower than others. Great example is Subaru Impreza, simple, optimal and strong as Japanese Samurai.
With raise of internet, there is ever rising number of “eExperts” – they know all, at least theoretically, but have absolutely no idea how it really works.
I was tired by bollocks I’ve been told by e-experts or taught at school. Instead of absorbing theories of confused public, I rather researched, tested, destroyed, manufactured and always learnt from masters – creating simple, intelligent solutions for my adventures.
