Vanmore, pay up and beer

We’ve entered the season of Vanmore, which means a steady stream of RVs, Sprinters, mini-vans, jimmy-rigged motorhomes, 1974 Ventura trailers, 1973 Bolers, truck campers, beaver-panelled station wagons and campulences (an ambulance turned camper) will be rolling into town for the next six months. Some of them will stay for a night en route to lush west coast parking locations, some will stay for a weekend, but most will stay for the summer.

How to enhance your performance, for free

Last weekend we lost an hour of sleep with the start of Daylight Savings Time. This may not seem like a huge deal, but I began to wonder if there is much data on health risks associated with losing an hour of sleep. Sure enough, after some digging around on Pubmed I found a few published studies suggesting that, yes, after the clocks spring forward in March, there is a spike in workplace injuries the following Monday. Motor vehicle accidents are more common immediately after the onset of daylight savings time, and there is an increase in heart attacks on the first 3 days afterwards. Sleep, it seems, plays a huge role in the optimization of health, and not only health per se, but also athletic performance.
