After spending the night in the abandoned Delamar Mine in Nevada, I came across an old cemetery while driving out. I had been wondering just how old the mine was, and figured the headstones would help solve that mystery.

Living nomadically has its risks, so I spend a decent amount of time implementing backup plans for worst scenarios. I like to think about this topic in terms of Fractals, which are systems with patterns which repeat themselves as you examine the individual components.

Ruined Mine in the Nevada Desert
As a nomad, I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting places to camp and explore. During my migration back to the Southwest United States for the Winter I came across a ruined mine in the Nevada desert while browsing freecampsites.net, and knew I had stop there for a few nights.

I’m on my way back South for the Winter. Seattle is great during the Summer, but it’s hard to resist the call of the Arizona deserts when the rains of the Pacific Northwest set in. One of my first stops was in the wilds of Nevada. A lone road stretches for miles through the middle of nowhere. I pull off into the brush to rest for the night, and do a little exploring before I retire.
Water is a daily necessity for us all, and when you’re living nomadically you often have to get creative about where you’re finding it. My favorite spot is from streams or other running water sources, but there is still the problem of microbes to deal with.
There are a lot of good camping filters which do the job, but they’re tedious… and I’m pretty lazy. Chlorine Dioxide had been used by backpackers for decades as a safe way to disinfect their water, and it’s my preferred method. At the right doses it may also alleviate various health conditions. To learn more about that, do an internet search on “MMS”.
I’ve recently adapted my Ketogenic Hot Chocolate recipe to be Vegan as well. This is done by replacing the ghee or butter with a can of coconut milk, and adding a little sunflower lecithin to aid in the mixing.
I’m loving it so far, and am still enjoying the natural health effects of being in ketosis – stable energy and a clear mind is a great way to start the day!
Here’s my first live Sitar practice session. I ended up explaining some of the basics of the instrument and of music itself!
Last time you heard from me I was thinking through some ideas on how to arrange the battery and panels on my Solar eBike. In this video I’ll show you how I created an expandable battery pack!
I’ve had several people in my life find out they had Cancer, and I’ve seen the devastating effects of one of the standard treatments called Chemotherapy first hand. This led me to do a fair amount of research on my own to see if science really supports this treatment and to investigate other options that are traditionally unsupported by western medicine.

I’m planning to upgrade my Rad Rover eBike
with a solar charging system so that I can harness the power of the sun when riding around. I have a few ideas so far on how to set it up, but haven’t settled on anything.
I’m hoping some of you have some ideas for how to solve the issues I mention towards the end of the video.
