Itinerant Aerodynamic Habitat (IAH)


I’m on a journey of discovery in the Wild West & Pacific Northwest. My mission is to explore, listen, capture images, and tell the story of this moment in history.
I’m vaccinated and my plan is to hit the road in May, 2021. You’re invited to join me on this great adventure. Sign up for my mailing list below for updates & more.

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.
