If you wish to master aurora photography and learn from award winning photographers then check offer by Iceland Photo Tours at https://iceland-photo-tours.com/ On 25th February 2014 Sun produced X4.9 flare which on 27th February caused G2 (KP 6) geomagnetic storm on Earth. It was the brightest aurora display so far during this solar maximum which I could witness with auroral displays overhead in the far north of Scotland. This short movie illustrates what has been seen from latitude 58.3 degrees north.

Officially known as Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights are one of nature's most spectacular visual phenomena. Appearing in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, curtains or shooting rays, the northern lights' amazing light display can be observed in the sky of high latitude regions such as Norway or Canada. You might know the cause of this natural phenomenon (collision of solar wind and magnetospheric charged particles) but there are many more interesting facts about this unreal spectacle that are worth learning. Here are 25 of them, illustrated with some of the most amazing Northern Lights pictures you have ever seen. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the physical list here for some extra info and explanations - http://list25.com/25-interesting-facts-about-northern-lights-you-should-know-before-you-see-them/ And now for a quick preview: The most spectacular Northern Lights in recent recorded history are considered those from the "Great geomagnetic storm" on 28 August and 2 September 1859. Studies have shown that a solar storm of this magnitude occurring today would likely cause widespread problems for modern civilization. Astronauts on board the International Space Station are at the same altitude as the Northern Lights and see them from the side. The Southern Lights offer the same visual display as the Northern Lights but since the South Pole is even more inhospitable and inaccessible than the North Pole, it is more difficult to view the Southern Aurora. Therefore, the Northern Lights are more popular and get almost all the attention. There are several towns famous for their great conditions for watching the Northern Lights. In North America, the aurora tourism capital is Yellowknife (Northwest Territories, Canada), while Tromso (Northern Norway) is the same for Europe. There have been many legends about the Northern Lights. Some North American Inuit tribes call the aurora „aqsarniit“ (meaning “football players”) thinking it is the spirits of the dead playing football with a head of a walrus. The colors of the Northern Lights depend on what gas is involved and how high in the ionosphere the reaction takes place. Blue and green lights form at lower altitudes while red color comes from the highest altitudes. Auroras tend to be more frequent and spectacular during high solar sunspot activity, which cycles over approximately eleven years. The last climax was in 2013. [...]

GREENBELT, MARYLAND — Ongoing geomagnetic storms have led to sightings of the Northern Lights across North America this week, the result of a coronal mass ejection from the Sun that occurred on Sunday, sending a stream of charged particles toward Earth. The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, are caused by blasts of magnetic plasma from the Sun that react with the Earth's own magnetic field. Some of the charged particles from the solar wind enter the Earth's atmosphere and are drawn to the magnetic north pole and magnetic south pole. These particles excite atoms and molecules in the atmosphere, causing them to give off photons of light as they quiet down. The solar wind can cause the Earth's magnetic field lines to disconnect from the planet. When the magnetic field lines reconnect, charged particles from the solar wind enter the Earth's atmosphere, causing aurora. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

I present a 5-minute music video featuring the Northern Lights – the aurora borealis – captured in still images, panoramas, all-sky images, time-lapse videos, and in real-time videos. All are from early February and early March of 2016. I shot all scenes at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre, near Churchill, Manitoba, on the shore of Hudson Bay at a latitude of 58° North. Churchill’s location places it under the usual location of the auroral oval, providing spectacular displays of Northern Lights even on nights when locations to the south are seeing nothing. I was at the CNSC to present sets of 5-night aurora viewing programs to guests from across North America. See www.churchillscience.ca for more details on their programs. I shot all images with Canon 6D and Nikon D750 DSLR cameras, usually at ISO 3200. The fish-eye all-sky sequences were with a Sigma 8mm lens on the Canon, while most of the still images and other full-frame time-lapses were with the Sigma 20mm Art lens on the Nikon. For the “rapid-cadence” time-lapses I used 1- to 2-second exposures at an interval of one second. The all-sky time-lapses are intended to be projected in digital planetarium theatres, recreating the scene on their 360° domes. Most full-dome sequences were processed through LRTimelapse software to handle the huge range in brightness of the Lights. The real-time video clips were with the Nikon – set to ISO 25600 – and the Sigma wide open at f/1.4. While these clips are prone to digital noise, they do record the fast movement and subtle colour of the aurora much as the eye saw it. These were processed through Photoshop and the Camera Raw filter. Temperatures ranged from a bitter -35° C to just (!) -15° C on most nights. I kept the long-duration, all-sky, time-lapse camera going by placing it in a Camera Parka (www.atfrostedlens.com) and inserting disposable hand warmer packs inside the insulated parka. It worked very well, making it possible to shoot for up to 3 hours. Without it, the battery died after an hour. Music is by one of my favourite artists, John Adorney, the selection If a Rose Could Speak, from his 2013 album The Wonder Well. It features vocals by Daya. The selection is used by kind permission from EverSound Music (www.eversound.com). Many thanks!

WHAT ARE NORTHERN LIGHTS? The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south.. Auroral displays appear in many colours although pale green and pink are the most common. Shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet have been reported. The lights appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow. WHAT CAUSES THE NORTHERN LIGHTS? The Northern Lights are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun's atmosphere. Variations in colour are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding. The most common auroral color, a pale yellowish-green, is produced by oxygen molecules located about 60 miles above the earth. Rare, all-red auroras are produced by high-altitude oxygen, at heights of up to 200 miles. Nitrogen produces blue or purplish-red aurora. The connection between the Northern Lights and sunspot activity has been suspected since about 1880. Thanks to research conducted since the 1950's, we now know that electrons and protons from the sun are blown towards the earth on the 'solar wind'. (Note: 1957-58 was International Geophysical Year and the atmosphere was studied extensively with balloons, radar, rockets and satellites. Rocket research is still conducted by scientists at Poker Flats, a facility under the direction of the University of Alaska at Fairbanks - see web page http://www.gi.alaska.edu/ The temperature above the surface of the sun is millions of degrees Celsius. At this temperature, collisions between gas molecules are frequent and explosive. Free electrons and protons are thrown from the sun's atmosphere by the rotation of the sun and escape through holes in the magnetic field. Blown towards the earth by the solar wind, the charged particles are largely deflected by the earth's magnetic field. However, the earth's magnetic field is weaker at either pole and therefore some particles enter the earth's atmosphere and collide with gas particles. These collisions emit light that we perceive as the dancing lights of the north (and the south). The lights of the Aurora generally extend from 80 kilometres (50 miles) to as high as 640 kilometres (400 miles) above the earth's surface. WHERE IS THE BEST PLACE TO WATCH THE NORTHERN LIGHTS? Northern Lights can be seen in the northern or southern hemisphere, in an irregularly shaped oval centred over each magnetic pole. The lights are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south. Scientists have learned that in most instances northern and southern auroras are mirror-like images that occur at the same time, with similar shapes and colors. Because the phenomena occurs near the magnetic poles, northern lights have been seen as far south as New Orleans in the western hemisphere, while similar locations in the east never experience the mysterious lights. However the best places to watch the lights (in North America) are in the northwestern parts of Canada, particularly the Yukon, Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Alaska. Auroral displays can also be seen over the southern tip of Greenland and Iceland, the northern coast of Norway and over the coastal waters north of Siberia. Southern auroras are not often seen as they are concentrated in a ring around Antarctica and the southern Indian Ocean. Areas that are not subject to 'light pollution' are the best places to watch for the lights. Areas in the north, in smaller communities, tend to be best. WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO WATCH FOR AURORAL DISPLAYS? Researchers have also discovered that auroral activity is cyclic, peaking roughly every 11 years. The next peak period is 2013. Winter in the north is generally a good season to view lights. The long periods of darkness and the frequency of clear nights provide many good opportunities to watch the auroral displays. Usually the best time of night (on clear nights) to watch for auroral displays is local midnight (adjust for differences caused by daylight savings time). http://www.gi.alaska.edu/ LEGENDS OF THE LIGHTS 'Aurora borealis', the lights of the northern hemisphere, means 'dawn of the north'. 'Aurora australis' means 'dawn of the south'. In Roman myths, Aurora was the goddess of the dawn. \par Many cultural groups have legends about the lights. In medieval times, the occurrences of auroral displays were seen as harbingers of war or famine. The Maori of New Zealand shared a belief with many northern people of Europe and North America that the lights were reflections from torches or campfires.https://www.northernlightscentre.ca/northernlights.html

Watch in HD!!!!!!! Heres something that I took back in August, our last weekend in the Canadian Rockies. I've kept this video footage for such a long time, not knowing what music to use with it and do it justice, never to see the light of day otherwise. For me, the background music can really make a video work and having recently seen then new Star Wars film, I think I've finally found what I was looking for. Throughout our time in North America, the thought of seeing the Aurora Borealis with my own eyes prompted me to loose more sleep than I ever imagined, sometimes I would get lucky, sometimes not. But even just a slither of light for a fleeting moment would be worth it in my eyes. So at the end of a warm day in the fall of summer, it was for me at least, literally last chance saloon. Incredibly, a friend of ours from Wales was actually visiting at that time and had been staying further north in Alberta's capital, Edmonton. Having never seen them for himself, I had mentioned to him that he should check to see if he could see them up there, as the sun had been active that week and there was potential to see them. The big city lights were to win for him though and he didn't get to see them, so upon his visit to see us in Banff National Park, I insisted that we take a trip to a popular and well known spot, facing north, more in hope than anticipation. As you can see from the video, the scene takes a little while to warm as the moon sets over the mountains, up until a familiar warm glow develops over the horizon. Normally that warm toxic glow would be the full extent of our Northern Lights experience, the fickle Aurora teasing us once more. Despite having failed countless times to see it properly, lady Aurora started to smile at us as the activity increased before the sky started to dance. First the pillars came, then the greens, reds, purples, blues and even oranges started to pulsate with an explosion of colour in the sky!! A true bucket list experience. Thanks for your support!!

The magnetic field of the earth was struck by a Coronal Mass Ejection from the sun during the late night of March 10th, 2011. The CME sparked very bright Northern Lights over Northern North America just after 11:00 P.M. local time. This video was shot in Minnesota just north of the city of Saint Cloud, MN. The video shows a very bright Aurora Borealis also known as The Northern Lights dancing in the sky. The Aurora peaked about the same time as the earth quake in Japan before Midnight local time in Minnesota. To license this footage, contact http://www.StormChasingVideo.com

On Monday, October 24th, 2011, at approximately 1:00 PM, Earth was struck by a coronal mass ejection. The impact strongly compressed Earth's magnetic field and sparked an intense geomagnetic storm. As night fell over North America, Auroras spilled across the Canadian border into the contiguous United States. In a rare, historic reverberation, the storm pushed south into Kansas. Photographer Stephen Locke documented the event from Perry Lake, northeast of Topeka. ... Typically restricted to the polar regions, blazing red "Northern Lights" were ultimately observed deep into the southern tier of the continental United States, with parts of Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia receiving their once in a generation glimpse of this astronomical phenomenon .

Eerily beautiful Aurora Borealis seen from the Space Station. Original NASA caption: "Aurora Borealis over Northern North America and Canada: This video was taken by the crew of Expedition 30 on board the International Space Station. The sequence of shots was taken January 29, 2012 from 10:18:13 to 10:31:28 GMT, on a pass from the North Pacific Ocean, approximately 1,000 miles west of California, to western Quebec. This video begins as the space station is passing over the dark waters of the North Pacific Ocean northeast towards Vancouver Island. The Aurora Borealis can be seen far north, where both the under side and top of the aurora are visible. The pass continues over Canada until the sun begins to come up in the east while over Quebec."

This video compacts about 18-and-a-half minutes of ISS travel into about 30 seconds. What I particularly enjoy about this video is that it starts looking directly to the area of the planet I occupy. Alaska's Kenai Peninsula is easily distinguishable, especially due to the city lights of Kenai, Soldotna, Homer, and Seward. South of that you can see Kodiak Island. Immediately north of the Kenai Peninsula, Anchorage is brightly lit; Fairbanks can be seen even further to the north. The video travels east across the United States, as you find yourself struggling to decide on whether you should watch the aurora borealis (northern lights) to the north, or try to guess all of the cities you can see due to the concentrated man-made light. Clouds obscure much of the view between Alaska and the Rockies, but they break in time to offer great Canadian views of Calgary and Edmonton. Following that, Minneapolis/St.Paul stand out, just before Chicago takes center-stage at around 24 seconds in, brilliantly lit, just south of Lake Michigan. You can catch the flashes of a lightning storm as we continue east towards the East Coast of the United States. You might notice how populated and electrified the East Coast is, compared to the Mid-West and the central United States. The video ends just after our view heads east over the coast of Florida, and above the shallow waters of the Bahamas.

Photographer Tommy Eliassen takes stunning pictures of Northern Lights in his native country, Norway Northern Lights, known as The Golden Compass in North America, is a young-adult fantasy novel by Philip Pullman, published by Scholastic UK in 1995. Set in a universe parallel to ours, it features the journey of Lyra Belacqua to the Arctic in search of her missing friend, Roger Parslow, and her imprisoned "uncle", Lord Asriel, who has been conducting experiments with a mysterious substance known as "Dust". An aurora (plural: aurorae or auroras; from the Latin word aurora, "sunrise") is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere (thermosphere). The charged particles originate in the magnetosphere and solar wind and, on Earth, are directed by the Earth's magnetic field into the atmosphere. Aurora is classified as diffuse or discrete aurora. Most aurorae occur in a band known as the auroral zone, which is typically 3° to 6° in latitudinal extent and at all local times or longitudes. The auroral zone is typically 10° to 20° from the magnetic pole defined by the axis of the Earth's magnetic dipole. During a geomagnetic storm, the auroral zone expands to lower latitudes. The diffuse aurora is a featureless glow in the sky that may not be visible to the naked eye, even on a dark night. It defines the extent of the auroral zone. The discrete aurorae are sharply defined features within the diffuse aurora that vary in brightness from just barely visible to the naked eye, to bright enough to read a newspaper by at night. Discrete aurorae are usually seen only in the night sky, because they are not as bright as the sunlit sky. Aurorae occasionally occur poleward of the auroral zone as diffuse patches or arcs (polar cap arcs), which are generally invisible to the naked eye. In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis (or the northern lights), named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas, by Pierre Gassendi in 1621. Auroras seen near the magnetic pole may be high overhead, but from farther away, they illuminate the northern horizon as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the Sun were rising from an unusual direction. Discrete aurorae often display magnetic field lines or curtain-like structures, and can change within seconds or glow unchanging for hours, most often in fluorescent green. The aurora borealis most often occurs near the equinoctes. The northern lights have had a number of names throughout history. The Cree call this phenomenon the "Dance of the Spirits". In Europe, in the Middle Ages, the auroras were commonly believed a sign from God.

Space weather forecasters predicted a minor geomagnetic storm on Nov. 7th. It turned out to be much stronger. As night fell across North America, auroras spilled across the Canadian border into more than a dozen US states. Auroras were sighted in Alaska, Vermont, New York, Wyoming, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and--believe it or not--Nebraska. http://spaceweathergallery.com/aurora_gallery.html What made this display so strong? A solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field on Nov. 7th. The leading edge of the stream contained a co-rotating interaction region (CIR). CIRs are transition zones between slow- and fast-moving streams of solar wind; they hold density gradients and strong magnetic fields that do an extra-good job sparking auroras. The arrival of the CIR sparked a G2-class geomagnetic storm and a surprisingly good show. http://spaceweather.com/ http://www.solarham.net http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/ Clips, images credit: spaceweather.com NOAA/SWPC, NASA/SDO Music credit: YouTube Audio Library Ocean Beach - Dan Lebowitz

If there is a place, most photographers wish to capture Northern lights, it surely must be Jökulsárlón - the Glacier Lagoon in Iceland. Very special location to visit any time of the day or year, especially when there are giant icebergs flowing into the ocean (which is not necessarily all the time). Imagine the best conditions for Northern Lights - clear sky with millions of stars reflected on perfectly mirror like surface of the lagoon, no wind, temperature just below freezing, then you get I what I got last time around. This timelapse doesnt capture only Glacier Lagoon area but also another iconic southern location - seaside along Vík í Mýrdal and Reynisdrangar - its famous Basalt sea stacks. No single #NorthernLights photo does true justice to what is happening on the sky during those unique moments when Northern Lights appear. Capturing Northern Lights - #Aurora Borealis can be extremely demanding on its own, however trying to capture enough footage/photos for just few seconds of video takes the dedication and exhaustion from hardly any sleep and days/night outside in a cold to a very new level. In Norse mythology the Valkyries (immortal, war-like virgins) would come galloping across the night sky upon their horses equipped with helmets, spears and armor that would glow and shimmer in the darkness. These lights, colored red, blue, violet and green, would spread in curtains from horizon to horizon, amazing the mortals below. This is how the Vikings explained a phenomenon we now call the aurora borealis, or the Northern Lights. Different societies have explained the phenomenon in diverse ways. The Alaskan Inuits thought of the lights as the souls of deer, seals, salmon and whales that they hunted. The Menominee Indians in North America thought the glow must be the torches of giants that lived in the North.

A huge solar flare unleashed on Tuesday June 7 has spewed a massive amount of particles into space (known as a coronal mass ejection, or CME). This eruption could lead to extra-luminous aurora displays throughout the northern hemisphere over the next two nights. Observers in Europe and North America may be able to see a greenish-white arc or band of light near the horizon of the northern sky, according to the Space Environment Laboratory in Colorado. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory monitored the flare, and space weather experts have said that the medium-class sun storm should not pose significant danger to satellites or Earth. For anyone concerned about the potential radiation that occurs from a solar flare of this magnitude, the Atlantic Wire reports that because of the sun's current positioning, the radiation should not have a harmful effect when it reaches Earth Wednesday or Thursday.

This video was created using images taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station on January 29, 2012. This nighttime pass starts just southwest of Mexico, sweeps over the east coast of the United States, and ends to the northeast of Newfoundland. The points of light, from towns and cities, show how people are distributed. The northern lights (greenish glow) dance in the upper atmosphere as the pass finishes near Newfoundland. Also known as aurora borealis, this colorful phenomenon is caused by high-energy particles from the Sun colliding with the Earth's magnetic field.

On 25th February 2014 Sun produced X4.9 flare which on 27th February caused G2 (KP 6) geomagnetic storm on Earth. It was the brightest aurora display so far during this solar maximum which I could witness with auroral displays overhead in the far north of Scotland. This short movie illustrates what has been seen from latitude 58.3 degrees north.

An aurora is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere (thermosphere). The charged particles originate in the magnetosphere and solar wind and, on Earth, are directed by the Earth's magnetic field into the atmosphere. In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis (or the northern lights), named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas, by Pierre Gassendi in 1621. The northern lights have had a number of names throughout history. The Cree call this phenomenon the "Dance of the Spirits". In Europe, in the Middle Ages, the auroras were commonly believed a sign from God. Its southern counterpart, the aurora australis (or the southern lights), has almost identical features to the aurora borealis and changes simultaneously with changes in the northern auroral zone and is visible from high southern latitudes in Antarctica, South America, New Zealand and Australia.

My 2.5-minute music video incorporates time-lapse and still images of the fine display of Northern Lights seen from Alberta – indeed from most of northern and western North America – on the night of September 27/28, 2017. It is rendered in 4K resolution. The video uses time-lapse clips shot looking north, straight up to the zenith, and south. The exposures are mostly about 2 seconds at ISO 6400, with an interval of 1 second, to freeze the fast motion as much as possible. The zenith and south displays were post-sub-storm flickering or flaming type auroras, with patches of sky pulsing off and on so rapidly only real-time video could accurately capture the scene. However, the fast cadence time-lapses do portray much of the effect of large patches of the sky turning on and off. The still-image panorama I zoom out to is a 360° scene of the infamous “Steve” arc, an isolated arc that often appears equator-ward of the main auroral oval and usually only when the main oval activity has subsided. This night the Steve arc appeared for only about 20 minutes before he faded and the main display picked up again, moving overhead. The order in which I show the clips is the order in which I shot them. All were shot from home in southern Alberta, with a Nikon D750 camera and Sigma 14mm Art lens at f/1.8 for most images. Processing was with Adobe Camera Raw and LRTimelapse, an essential tool in this case to handle the changes in brightness of the aurora in the first sequence.

If the skies are clear where you live, Mother Nature’s putting on a light show Wednesday night. The Space Weather Prediction Center has issued a G1 geomagnetic storm alert. That means North America is in for a space spectacular. Like the storm in late January, the aurora borealis should be visible across most of Canada, along with Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Maine in the United States. Canada’s Northern Lights Centre says the northern lights are “the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere.” The changes in color are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding with the particles from the sun. Pale green and pink are the most common colors. Shades of red, yellow, green, blue and violet have been reported. If the conditions are right, the effect can be beautiful. The best viewing times are expected to be from sunset until 11 p.m. ET. Viewing conditions will depend on the weather in your area. To see the northern lights, you’ll need a good view of the northern horizon. Also, the darker the better. Get away from the city so the light pollution won’t overshadow the subtle flickers.

Music by Dixxy (https://soundcloud.com/dixxy-2) Really appreciate the support, check out the Patreon for more access and perks: https://www.patreon.com/FindingSimon If Patreon isn't your thing, I also have a Paypal.me link: paypal.me/ShelbyandSimon I'm a Canadian photographer from Ottawa who got rid of everything to travel to world. I make travel vlogs about my Vanlife, sharing vanlife ideas, vanlife tips, and travel diaries. Instagram: @Finding_Simon Snapchat: Finding_Simon Twitter: @FindingSimon Donations: paypal.me/ShelbyandSimon Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/FindingSimon Merchandise: http://simonstiles.com/finding-simon/ :::::::FAQ::::::: - How do you afford to travel constantly? A: I live in a van, which certainly cuts costs down but still I need to make some money in order to afford to continue, currently I make 90% of my income through working as a photographer/videographer. I regularly work for Airbnb as a real estate photographer and I also take on bigger commercial contracts whenever I get the chance. - How much does it cost? I spend on average $2000 travelling, most of which is gas, some repairs, food, and on average less than $200 on any eating out, shopping or extra curricular expenditures. I make $200 a month from YouTube and $400 from Patreon. The rest I make from my work. - What camera do you use? Sony A7ii, Nikon D810, Sony RX100 iii, DJI Phantom 3 Advanced, Rode Videomic with Deadcat, Zihyun Crane 3 Axis Gimbal, Underwater Housing, tripods and lights. - What is your van? 1992 Dodge B350 Travelhome with the 5.9L TBI gas engine. I spent $3500 buying it and so far another $9000 in repairs upgrades and maintenance. - What're your plans? Travel forever. The Arctic this summer, Asia next winter, Sailboat the world after. I want to see this whole world, and I'm playing it all by ear. - How do you find all these cool places? To gain access to my complete research you need to hit me up on Patreon, but here's a few sites I frequent: https://freecampsites.net/ https://www.campendium.com/ http://www.atlasobscura.com/ https://www.couchsurfing.com/ - What do you do for Internet? I use coffeeshops and libraries to upload episodes a few at a time, I also use my wifi antenna (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5T9lNM8Mukk&t=2s) and a data package on my phone (10GB) - How do you live in a van with a dog? It's really not as difficult as people seem to think. I spend most of the day with my dog anyways, especially if it's warm out in the middle of the day. If I have to leave him inside the van I cover the front seats so he can't climb up and stare out the window and bark. I cover all the windows with reflectix panels I made for insulation, I turn my fantastic sucking air out on max (replaces all the air in the van every 90 seconds). I crack one window in a shaddy lower part of the van to create a consistent airflow. Other than that the fiberglass roof and insulation do a fantastic job of keeping the heat out. In colder climates I set the furnace on at minimum and close down all the windows same as for heat minus venting. - What happened to the girl? We decided to go seperate ways (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPgxDIXxCjY&t=4s) - Are you rich or something? definitely not. I've spent some quality time homeless, I've struggled financially most of my life, and although I'm blessed with great friends and family as well as being able bodied white and male, I don't subscribe to the belief that you need someone footing your bills in order to travel the world. You need to sacrifice comfort, consistency, safety, time with family, and often your career but it is possible. - Why don't you have 10x more subscribers? My channel isn't that old, many of the bigger channels you can compare mine to started putting out videos a couple years before I began. I could always use your help sharring my videos, spreading the word, and connecting with cross promotional opportunities. Editing and travelling tend to take up all my time.
