I've completed a loop on my nomadic travels and return once again to Lake Havasu where I stayed. This time I'm confident enough to drive much deeper into the wilderness to do some exploring and really get in touch with that clarifying and energizing solitude one can find in places like this. Cahlen
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. Cahlen
Last January there was a Super Blue Blood Moon, which won't happen again for another 19 years, and I was lucky enough to spend it at Indian Bread Rocks. I return again on the other side of 2018 to do some further exploration of the area on my Solar Powered eBike. It's definitely a place I recommend to any nomads out there... magical really. Cahlen
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. For example, if my truck breaks down while I'm 20 miles into the desert, then I have my electric bike to get me to town, and if that breaks down I have a backpack with everything I need to survive a long trip on foot.

Now in Their 70s, Two Friends Return to the Arctic for One More Adventure Short Film Showcase
I decided to visit an old abandoned mine in the middle of the Nevada desert rather than rushing to Lake Havasu... I just couldn't resist seeing a piece of mostly forgotten American history. There are mine shafts all over the place, and the remnants of stone buildings scatter the hillsides. This clearly was a bustling center of activity in the early 1900s. Cahlen
I wanted to take the time to reflect back on the recent trip I took on my single speed bike to the "Cursed Pyramid Ruins" in Southern Indiana, U.S.A. There were a number of mistakes that I made and a number of upgrades that need to be made on the bike itself that I share with you. Also a very personal and inspiration event that occurred on the return trip that was not in that video!
