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.Continue reading “Old Cemetery near a Nevada Mine”
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.Continue reading “Using Fractals to Increase Survival Odds”
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.
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’m hoping some of you have some ideas for how to solve the issues I mention towards the end of the video.
This was up and down steep hills so it’s pretty impressive in my book… I hope to convert this bike and trailer into my primary transport for cross country nomadic traveling. No licensing, registration, insurance or expensive maintenance, and it’s powered by the sun… Yes!
I was born only a few miles away 18 months later, so it was always something people were talking about. I’m glad I finally got to finally visit it for myself! This is the last stop before reaching the Seattle area where I’ll be staying for awhile. In the next video I’ll explain why I’m here and my plans for the future.
Definitely an amazing view, though car camping isn’t really an option in the park itself. Luckily there were plenty of places in the nearby National Forest. In the next video we’ll be visiting Mount St. Helens in Washington which erupted 2 years before and near where I was born. I’m looking forward to it!
