During the winter of 2003 I embarked on a roadtrip to cover the Dennis Kucinich for President campaign, on my dime, for the now defunct KucinichWatch.com. Shortly before the California Primaries I returned home, bought a van, gave up "normal" life in LA and hit the road again.. to document end of the facade of democracy. This video deals with the logistics as well as the motivation behind this commitment.

March 2006
I'm still on the road. Though many of the initial tools of the trade have been upgraded and I rarely stay at truck stops these days; I'm still usually a little road weary. Keeping up with the work load is often completly impossible; but somehow I get by. My "home" is a smiley face coffee mug in search of a kitchen.

In fairness, there were 4 other videos selected by Current -- you were also beaten by an Emmy Award winning video-journalist and a veteran of ABC news.

Oh yeah -- and a rapping donut.

So, the winners were either banal or high-end industry productions that demanded lofty budgets and extensive travel.

I love the idea of what you do. I'm trying to get into citizen journalism too. That was awesome footage of the cop spraying pepper spray at you while you were filming him. What an idiot! Too bad you couldn't have him charged or something...

Keep up the good work, I think the whole wireless Internet, extra batteries, and van thing is really cool too. I wish I could travel around like that but I have young children.

Yes, , I did notice how Nicely Standard and typical tv flashy the chosen ones were. Which brought to mind the image of Al Gore on their announcement video emphatically telling the crowd that they wanted videos from "YOU" about "YOU"... I guess he was pointing to the network press core covering the event when he said that but I missed that part.... oh well.

I'm intrigued and amazed.

Looks like you've been doing this for awhile. Can't believe I just stumbled on it. I'll have to make sure to subscribe on mefeedia and sift back throught the history.

This videos was a superb introduction. My mind is blow.

We're all one part digital nomad these days. But you've taken it further than anyone I've seen.

The idea of just being able to "roam the planet" and continue to design, develop and basically make a full time living is tremendously interesting.

I wonder... are the logistics of finding places to camp, or part, or find internet access a pain in the ass? My biggest fear is that I'd just get tired of the hassel.

I'm also curious about what sort of equipment you use... and security concerns... always being on the road.

Anyway, welcome to mefeedia.com and thanks for introducing yourself. I'm sure we'll get to chat in the future.
