Itinerant Aerodynamic Habitat (IAH)


I hit the road on May 1st, 2021, traveled around the Western USA, and explored Utah, Wyoming, and parts of the Pacific Northwest. I was abruptly interrupted in late June and I’ve been living in the van in California. Plans are being developed, but nothing ready for prime time yet. I’ll share when something gets the go-ahead!

My Story

My name is Erik Blair. I’m a writer, digital creator, web developer, and nomad. Originally from the East Bay, California, I am currently on an expedition in the Western US, partly powered by the Sun and funded by digital endeavors.

The Escape Pod (IAH)

EscapePod.One is a converted cargo van that’s been modified into a Itinerant Aerodynamic Habitat (IAH). It’s 14 cubic meters of “wheel-estate” that serves as my expeditionary vehicle, home-on-wheels, and portable office. It’s been almost a year, so far!
