While I'm traveling on foot with just my backpack I always take my folding solar panel to charge my various devices. It can power anything which uses USB, including my phone, lighter, and lots of other useful toys. I love the feeling of independence that is provided by knowing I can rely on the free energy of the sun to keep my technology running.
Today on Ask Cahlen I am answering the question, "Who is Dean Clifford?"
Dean Clifford was a significant voice in the freedom movement a few years back. He stepped out of the more public view after he was bullied by the system he was revealing. His primary focus was revealing the governments of the world as voluntary membership organizations which give the impression they rule a geographical area by relying on the ignorance of its population. Those who are aware of the scam can step out of it, assuming they are willing to deal with the inconvenience that may come along with it.
Dean Clifford now works primarily behind the scenes on his private membership organization Earth Stewardship Collective (https://earthsc.org) whose mission statement is to provide a better alternative to what governments currently offer.

After 6 days on foot exploring the Jemez Mountains I've decided to head home a day early to avoid long rainstorm which is likely to last several days. In this video I discuss some of the things I learned on this adventure, along with some of the highlights.
Today on Ask Cahlen I will be answering the question, "What was Wardenclyffe Tower?"
Wardenclyffe Tower was an uncompleted project of Nikola Tesla in the early 1900s which was designed to transmit data and energy wirelessly across the planet by utilizing the innate electromagnetic properties of the Earth. If it had been completed, we would have had free energy and wireless internet decades before the 21st century. Unfortunately, JP Morgan canceled the project when he discovered the intention was to provide free energy worldwide.

In this episode of Ask Cahlen I'll be answering the question, "Why did you become a wizard?
I wouldn't necessarily say there was a time that I became a wizard. I feel more comfortable saying that I realized I was a wizard. I see it as one of the many roles in a well functioning society
My definition of a wizard is someone who seeks Truth, uses it with Wisdom and shares it with others wishing to do the same. By that definition there are many wizards in the world, as theoretically any true scientist would qualify. Unfortunately many modern sciencists turn their eyes away from truth by choosing to focus solely on the material world and to ignore the spiritual, so I personally don't view them as wizards.

Welcome to Day 2 of my week long Jemez Mountains adventure! The original plan was to head north towards some caves near a river I know of, but I ran out of water too quickly, and needed come up with another plan. An impromptu trek down an abandoned road ended up working out better than I could have imagined!
Today I set out on foot to explore the Jemez Mountains for a week. This area is actually on the side of an active Super Volcano called the Valles Calderas, one of the biggest volcanoes is the world. My goal is to reach a river valley many miles away on the other side of a mesa made of solidified ash.
If things go really well I'll visit a hot springs and the crater itself before I head home in a week, but this first video is about climbing the mesa and exploring the area near the top edge. I came across some native ruins and some abandoned log cabins near an old quarry.

Becoming a Vegan after years of relying on animal products can be a difficult process. I failed on my first attempt several years back, but am trying again armed with some better information about nutritional elements missing from a Vegan diet and how to get them through other means. I also discuss some of the reasons I'm personally choosing to be Vegan.

Currently I pay for my own Dedicated Server using Cryptocurrency I earn through various methods like playing games or posting videos. At one point I was able to live completely off of my earnings, and I think it's likely that will become the case again very soon.
In this video I detail some of the ways I earn Cryptocurrencies like Steem and EOS, and some strategies for continuing to succeed in this ever evolving space.
I was recently asked to to describe the various types of water filters available out there, and how I feel about each of them. I personally prefer Gravity Filters because they use no energy, waste none of the water and clean almost everything bad out of the water. Reverse Osmosis is also good, but a large amount of water is wasted in the process. Distillation is also good, but is very energy intensive, and many people believe its unhealthy to drink water that's completely empty of minerals.
Here's the Gravity Filter that I personally used before I became nomadic, though I also added the Arsenic/Fluoride filters which are usually bought separately:
I've been having a lot of issues with flat tires while riding around on my Fat Tire Solar eBike in the Southwest United States, and have been experimenting with ways to solve the problem. In this video I demonstrate how I converted my tires to a tubeless puncture resistant setup, despite the fact that my rims are not tubeless ready, by cutting open a tube to be used as a rim liner.
Both tires are holding air and I look forward to riding around in the mountains here next week to see how well they hold up on the rough thorny trails.
I was recently asked the question, “What’s the most significant / important thing you hope to convey to the world?” This is something I’ve been asking myself for awhile now, and I love that someone thought to ask me about it.

Today on Ask Cahlen I will be answering the question, "What is a Codependent Relationship?"
I have a lot of personal experience with Codependency, and I've mostly come out of my tendency to fall into it, so I'm glad to have the opportunity to share my thoughts on how to notice it in your relationships and what to do about it.

Today on Ask Cahlen I'll be answering the question, "How do I achieve financial freedom while living away from large cities?"
This question comes to me from a friend on the Steem blockchain with amazing timing, as I feel I am reaching a point of true thriving in this regard after a journey which started over two years ago. I am thankful for the opportunity to share what I have learned.
Guillain Barre Syndrome is an Autoimmune Disease where the body’s immune system attacks the myelin of its own neurons causing tingling, numbness and eventually paralysis of various parts of the body. It can lead to death in cases where paralysis effects the muscles controlling the lungs and heart, but most people recover over a period of several months and sometimes years.
I’m starting up a new video series called ‘Ask Cahlen?’ I’ve been wanting to start sharing the knowledge I’ve been picking up now that I have a lot more free time, energy and desire to learn. This first episode is an introduction to the series itself.
Let me show you how I grind rice, lentils, vegetables and spices into a fine powdered mix which can be quickly cooked in camp for a delicious hot and hearty meal. It’s also light and compact in my backpack and feeds me for days… the perfect healthy vegan survival dinner!

A friend has been recommending I explore the Gila National Forest in New Mexico for awhile now, and I finally got the chance. I’m glad I did because there was so much to see! Come along as Jeremiah the Nomad Man and I explore this area for the first time on our bikes.
When I left my job and home to be nomadic in January 2018 the first place I stopped and stayed for more than a single night was in the hills around Lake Havasu Arizona. It was the first time in my life where I finally felt free, and so I hold a lot of sentimentality for this place.
I've completed a loop on my nomadic travels and return here again, and 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.
After spending the night in an old abandoned mine in Nevada, I came across a cemetery while driving out. I had been wondering just how old the mine was, and figured the headstones would help solve that mystery.
It appears that this mine was active in the first 2 decades of the 1900s, and there's evidence that there were entire families living up here. One of the family plots has around 8 used sites with room for more. It's also interesting to note that there are signs of people still visiting this place to pay their respects to their ancestors.
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. At every level I maintain my ability to travel safely and comfortably.
The same goes for shelter, clothing, food and water. At this point I've got my fractal bases covered for all of those categories, and removing the worry of "what if" has made it all the more easy to relax and enjoy this wonderful lifestyle.
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.
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".
