Torture Device

Yesterday, my bike seat was officially recognized as a Medieval Torture Device by the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism). So, I improvised a new one, and then bravely set off for Walden Pond.

LATER: Well, it's an improvement. Am just going by the seat of my pants here, but may still need to come up with Rev. 3....

 Found this bad boy on the side of our tent the next morning:
