The Gods Have Spoken




Colorado has to be one of the most beautiful states I have had the pleasure to drive through, the many passages, the strokes of beauty on the canvas of Mother Earth's creation and Father Skies majestic presence, it is definitely Godly in every way.  Now please do not misinterpret the word or meaning with some religious dogma, but instead, my intent is to demonstrate the pure beauty that only Gods can create.  It is our playground, the place where we learn to tap into our own Godly abilities, and where we can heal from the savaged programming we have been indoctrinated with throughout history.



The beauty of this planet is beyond words, and sadly many will never get to truly experience it's magic and instead will be forced to live their artificial life watching a big screen TV, or sitting in front of a computer screen, where all the different mental disorder brew and take over one's mind. We have been set up for failure, becoming dreamers, not doers, becoming incapacitated and unable to leave the cage, the so-called safe haven we have been taught to worship and love.  It is only through Mother and Father that we can truly heal, and to realize that we are part of this majestic creation, not below it or above it, but right where we need to be, beside it.



We have covered over 6,000 miles in the past 26 days, we have seen so much in such a small amount of time. I don't have the words to express the feelings and emotions attached to what my senses have had the pleasure to experience. Many say "God's" words are in the Bible, I say that is not true, God/Goddess speaks to us through nature, it is the true sanctuary and healing place, not the church, and definitely not some book created by man's own interpretation of what he thinks God says. I say the Gods have spoken, but not through these dogmatic ways, but instead the secret messages are there hidden under the rocks, inside the mountains, in every passing Creek and River, in every plant and herb, every particle of Sand the comes from the many different Universes that we are all collectively part of.



Many will disagree with my words or analogies on this blog, and that is okay, for this is my interpretation of what I have had the pleasure to experience and to see. I am a much better person today, 26 days into this amazing journey, I can only imagine what my life will be a year from now. I hope that we are able to spark some interest, and open up the minds of many who live their life based on other peoples experiences or interpretations. I hope we can get you out there, to see the world first hand where you can talk to the mountains, listen to the rivers cry, watch nature unfold right before your very eyes.  It is magical, to say the least.



Here is a poem inspired by my experience:



My eyes, they open first thing as I arise, I see the silhouette in disguise, the shadows cast by the sun, the smell of nature is so divine.  I can only hope to understand her message, her words, her guidance, her gentle lessons she teaches us every day through this amazing journey she has designed.



We ride, we walk, we climb each day, zig-zagging away, for we can't get enough of her presence and the many essences she designs. We are her humble servants, confused and lost, trying to find our way, we don't claim to know the path, we are mere travelers of her wrath. The rain, the storms, the winds that blow the soul into submission, all she wants is recognition, and love, yes love, the love the tames even the untamable.  The journey has no beginning and no end, time is an illusion, the path is a mere confusion, for there are no rules, no maps, the travelers must submit to chance, and the sooner we learn that we are not in control, the sooner we grow and learn to let go. Ride on, travel on, be part of the magic, for the Gods have spoken the breath into our lungs.

Technology Slows Down Our Journey: But We Are Back





As many of you know, I am not much for the Matrix nor all that it represents. I believe it actually makes us prisoners and infests our Neurological system while removing our true human nature. Before we set out on this Journey, we thought we took care of all the essential needs to be able to report our journey and to bring you all along with us. I actually was satisfied with what appeared to be a good provider, leaving behind my long standing relationship with Metro PC and went with T-Mobile who at the time appeared to be a better choice for being connected while on the road.



Well to make a long story short, when we got to North Dakota we noticed our 4G went down to 3G and soon we received a message stating that our roaming allotted 200 MB amount was almost reached, therefore, we would be left with no data and our devices rendered useless. Well, we contacted T-Mobile and expressed our frustration but basically got nowhere, they were unable to do anything about the situation, according to them there were limits on roaming, we were sold an unlimited plan that actually had limits when their towers were not their own.  It appeared that my 15-year relationship with Metro Pc was tainted for nothing, we had to drive 300 miles to Colorado, there were no T-Mobile, nor Metro PC locations in Montana, which is where we received our text that our data had run out.




We were, to say the least, frustrated and angry, and knew that we had to drive to the nearest T-Mobile and Metro PC dealer  300 plus miles to cancel one and reconnect the other, as well as purchase a Hot Spot from the best, yet most expensive carrier, Verizon.  In the meanwhile, we drove through horrific weather of rain, that produced lots of hydro gliding, and even through snowed areas, which blew my mind, I did not imagine in mid-May that snow could be possible.




We have had lots of challenges on this adventure of a lifetime, yet none has proven to be so frustrating, especially for Lynna who is the one in charge of making sure you all get the story told. She is the artist that places the storyboard together via film, capturing the beautiful images that our wonderful planet has gifted us. We are now sitting in Boulder Colorado, editing and putting stuff together that is on the backlog, due to the technological glitches.



We hope you are enjoying our wonderful adventure and hope that we can continue to provide you with amazing sceneries, as well as to share the good, the bad and the ugly with you via this blog and videos. Here are some live videos we shot along the way. Remember to Donate if your heart desires to and enjoy what we are doing, we have now had to incur more charges having to have a Hot Spot with Verizon.  You can also become a Patreon and sponsor our Projects, we want to make some more great music videos that will bring a message of freedom, empowering everyone to break free and to know there is another way.

GypsyBlue Nomads: Season 1 Episode 8 Camping By The Blue Ridge & Runnin...

Live updates and more...

I can't believe it has been over 2 weeks now since our departure from the typical life most people endure. We are officially Nomads having traveled thus far over 4000 miles in this short amount of time. The east coast has not been memorable, but we have had some incredible moments and created many memories. We are looking forward to enjoying the West and will return to the east when the bugs and the rainy season are less prominent.

We have made incredible music videos are enamored by our girl GypsyBlue, how she cuddles us every night in our sleeping pod, keeps us warm and gets us to where we need to go, effortlessly and very cost efficiently.


Here are some live updates we have done throughout our journey, remember to check directly on our YouTube channel. If you like what we are doing and the message we are spreading, you can donate, become a Patrion or both. We hope to inspire you to do the same, or at least get to enjoy our journey as we navigate life with a Nomadic heart and a loving soul.












Life is too short to be living it on someone else's terms, the freedom to express, live and to live without fear or boundaries is your human right. Let us inspire your hunger for more, never settle for anything less and do not let fear keep you encaged, for you are not slaves, you are meant to fly and to be free. On that note, let us all cheer on our girl, Go Go GypsyBlue....

We just wanted to stay far away from this momma Eastern Diamondback rattler!  She blocked our path back but we had no choice but to take another path back to camp, even if it happened to be all the back around.

GypsyBlue Nomads: Season 1 Episode 5 In The Woods

Our GypsyBlue camping adventures got off to a great start in a state park here in South Carolina and Mark had a song to sing at the end of the day.



Challenges Of A Nomad


VEGAN AT WENDY'S


So today marks one week of our Nomadic adventures, GypsyBlue Nomads, the life of 2-Two Spirited Nomads and their car.   This hands down has been the most amazing experience I have ever had in my entire life, and note I have had many great adventures, from joining the army at 17 to Marrying an English man and living in England, then there was my adventure in Argentina, my quest to meet a trans woman on the other side of the world, which allowed me to see how others live outside of the US.  Needless to say, I have had many amazing experiences all of which has allowed my personal growth and fortified me with wonderful memories.

This journey along side with my wife Lynna, will for certain push us to levels we have never known possible, which we welcome, for our own personal spiritual growth. Thus far, we have had a few encounters that would probably create fear in many, yet it has only made us stronger and looking forward to more. The so-called normal life people live in their boxed reality leaves people empty and in search for stimulation which usually stems from drugs, alcohol or any type of synthetic solution, none of which really ever solves the problem, the lack of connection with nature and who we truly are.

The first night in Anderson South Carolina, we were threatened with the police for sleeping overnight at a rest stop, mainly because I had parked the car the opposite way to get a better view of the most amazing scenery.








Then there was the bug infestation at Keowee Toxaway State Park, seeing that I am a magnet for mosquitos I was eaten away, while Lynna was not even touched.  But as if the bugs were not enough, as we explored the area and tried to break in my new Hiking boots, we had an encounter with one of the largest, highly venomous snakes in the Americas, the chances to actually come across one of these majestic creatures is rare, but of course, if there is a chance of something rare happening, it would definitely happen to us. Don't get me wrong, I think it was incredible, and as frightening, as it may have appeared to be, I was grateful to have experienced it. 




One of the most challenging things for me thus far as a person who has OCD, is trying to keep everything in order, living in your car, especially a small vehicle like the Prius does tend to provide many challenges for a person who thrives on organization and neatness. But as a person who also thrives with overcoming challenges, I have found new ways to keep myself sane while living out of our car. There must be a place for everything, and everything has its place.  Keeping the car clean on the inside as well as on the outside with sponges, paper towels, and chemical free cleaners has been very helpful and a lifesaver. I have a set routine, as I move all of my stuff from the front seat to the back seat, the daily ritual of making the back our bed or the storage area as we drive. 








Keeping clean in between showers is also very important to me, so far we are still trying to find a method that is effective, as is finding locations that one can feel comfortable, changing clothing, brushing one's teeth and privates without feeling uncomfortable. Some bathrooms have a large stall with their own sink, I like those the best. I can wash up and change clothing without feeling rushed or worried about others needing to use the stall as well. 




We finally bought a bed foam to add to the sleeping quarters, making it much more comfortable and cozy. Finally, the other challenge is boondocking in urban areas, Walmarts are not always welcoming to overnighters, nor are rest stops. We stayed at a Target last night, found it to be safe and welcoming, no signs of towing your vehicle, in fact there seem to have been several van dwellers which gave us the clue that it would be okay to spend the night there. 



I want to engage in our own cooking more, since eating out can be quite costly and not very healthy, even with trying to make healthy vegan choices, restaurant meals are never adequate, and we are quickly finding out the lack of vegan choices or knowledge on the matter in the restaurant world. This is all one big learning curve and I am sure we will get better as time progresses.  

When we are away from the city, or in an area that I can set up my portable kitchen it is not a problem at all, but this world is set up to keep us all enslaved in their fast food corporate world.  More parks with the ability to picnic and enjoy the outdoors are needed. People should not be made to feel as if they are criminals when they prefer not to live in a box and enjoy the great outdoors. The lobbying monsters for campgrounds seem to be the ones pushing the no overnight parking, so more people are forced to pay their outrageous prices.

Not Without An Incident or Two

South Carolina:


It has not even been a week yet, and we already had a few encounters which have only made the adventure ever so interesting. We slept in a rest stop that had a sign that read no overnight parking which of course we missed but were informed first thing in the morning that we needed to leave, after having the most restful night sleep and an amazing view.






We then decided to explore South Carolina some more and stayed at a State Park called Keowee Toxaway State Park and guess what we encountered?





The weather has been amazing, some cold nights, which we welcome since we get to open our windows and enjoy the fresh air.  I have had my share of mosquito bites and I must say that Carolina does have plenty of bugs, but it's all part of the journey and tale to tell.

So keep on watching as life unfolds before our very eyes.
