First Impressions: Location Independent Nomads in Chiang Mai, Thailand
2020-01-19 04:34 UTC by Richard Nikoley


It’s a contradiction in terms with a wink and a smile, but if anyplace on earth could lay claim to being the “home base” of the digital nomad, it’s Chiang Mai, Thailand. Thailand is a wonderful, happy, smiling and seemingly content country in general, but Chiang Mai offers the best of all of that.

Back at Oregon State in about 1982, my weed-smoking, Alaskan roommate introduced me to more than weed and bongs.

It was a Rush.

My very first Rush album was actually a live mix, Exit Stage Left and while it’s brilliant on many levels, the one track, YYZ (airport code for Toronto, from whence they harken), is brillianter and it’s because of...

How To Live Tax Free as an American Nomad
2020-01-10 00:10 UTC by Richard Nikoley


DEATH & TAXES AHEAD

Much is made of the Leviathan that’s the United States Internal Revenue “Service.” Gotta love euphemism. What a “SERVICE!”

For a laf at “The Land of the Free”:

The only major nation that taxes its citizens (and green card holders) regardless of where they live is the United States. So...

Making Money As A Location Independent Nomad
2019-12-28 18:44 UTC by Richard Nikoley


I’ve spent a good deal of time in contemplation since I got rid of the biggest monkey on my back, the home sale. I’ve sold nearly everything…only the car and hang-glider remain. And my only bills are the cell phone and Netflix. LOL. Soon I’ll have rent and food, but otherwise only incidental expenses like plane tickets and...

Food For The Holidays
2019-12-27 18:40 UTC by Richard Nikoley


That was the spread at my family’s Christmas party on Saturday, December 14, just a few hours after I left the home I sold for the last time. I’ve been here since, enjoying the Holidays with family and will remain until I head out January 14 on the travels—likely lasting a year or two, around the world.

In my last post I briefly laid out some costs for my first excursion to Thailand commencing January 14, 2020.

Now I’ll add some precision, such that people have a decent idea of what the costs to do this might be—the aim being to definitely not live in squalor like the grunge hippies do, but to live frugally in a way that really enhances the...

At Long Last I’m a “Homeless” Nomad

Beatrice brought the dogs up to Arnold, CA for the last week in the cabin, gathering clothes and other keepsakes, as I did the same.

In the end, I ended up with a reasonable pile constituting every material thing I own, except for the car that hauls it away, until I sell that too, within the next month.

Once again Andy Curzon and I host an interesting person with which to have a discussion.

This time it’s Curt Doolittle, founder of the Propertarian Institute. It’s an informal discussion that lightly covers a lot of ground from film to trade tariffs.

For a more formal and thorough treatment of Propertarianism, Curt suggests you watch ...

I deleted my Facebook account.

It wasn’t the first time.

Sometime in 2013/14 I deleted it for the 1st time. Back then, I’d grown it to 10K plus peeps as I recall. But I’d grown it from this blog. I rarely interacted very much, primarily using it as a means to get out word of a new blog post, right here.

But then I noticed a trend,...

I went off the rails a bit last night on Facebook for engagement for fun after another 30 days away. Deleted all the posts this morning.

I have no interest in adding any value to Facebook ever again. My own blog (since 2003 it’s my own platform and approaches 5,000 posts).

Posts just like this.

There’s no good way to preface this video. An off the cuff 2 hours that covers everything from Poland, to Spain, to libertarianism, to history, to political policy, to culture. Oh, and scrambled eggs (all methods).

It’s a one-off and unique, on many levels.
