GeoAstroRV joins Epic Nomad TV and heads to Theodore Roosevelt National Park

A while back, Brenda and I made a decision to sell most of what we owned and to move into a recreational vehicle (RV).  We wanted to go see the geology of North America especially the national parks.  We decided to follow in the footsteps of amateur visual astronomer, John Dobson, and do astronomy presentations as we traveled.  These presentations would be done at dark sky locations, schools, businesses, churches, private and state RV parks, etc.  Most importantly, we wanted to establish a relationship with the national park system.

Every decision regarding the purchase of a rig, solar trailer and astronomy equipment was made with the intention to be as professional as possible.  All of the “off-grid” modifications were made to be as eco-friendly as possible.  We also made a decision to advertise what we do in a new movie that was coming out about nomadic people living and working in recreational vehicles (RV Nomads).  GeoAstroRV is not a business.  We consider ourselves retired and sharing the stars for free as our hobby/mission.

Oddly enough, the request for advertising that we sent to Eric Odom, creator of Epic Nomad TV and producer of the movie RV Nomads, was met with a challenge.  We instead were offered an opportunity to join forces with Eric Odom and nine other full-time RVers as partners in the company.  We already had met many of these couples and found a synergistic relationship between what we did and what they were doing.

These last few months have been a whirlwind for us.  However, we are having the time of our life.  We are not cast members in the movie.  We are simply people behind the scenes helping with the production of the movie. I can not describe the joy we are experiencing in helping behind the scenes.  A while back, Eric Odom laid out what the next year would look like for those involved with Epic Nomad TV.  Brenda and I went for a drive and decided that we want to continue our stargazing mission, but we also wanted to commit to helping Epic Nomad TV thrive.  We decided we would spend a year using our solar trailer as a production trailer for the creation of the episodic content on the Epic Nomad TV platform (ENTV).  We will still be crisscrossing North America offering our free astronomy programs along the way.  However, being a part of EPIC Nomad TV has been an amazing adventure.

The production team is nearly done filming the movie.  There are many moving parts behind the scenes while the movie is being edited and prepared for the film festival.  With production done, Brenda and I get to again follow our passion.  We are so excited to have the opportunity to head to Theodore Roosevelt National Park where we will be giving free astronomy presentations for the next two months.  We view this as an opportunity to show South Unit District Interpreter (Ranger) Amy McCann what we can do.  We hope Theodore Roosevelt becomes the first stop for us every year.

Soon, our webpage will show our route of travel.  For now we can say we will be spending the winter in Arizona and then making a stop in Wellington, Texas for a project with other content creators before heading north through the Rockies.  We will be seeking opportunities along this route to share our presentations in every city, campground and boondocking site that we can find.

  1. I really hope that our paths cross one day. We spent a couple of hours looking at the stars last night with our binoculars. The night sky is simply amazing!

    1. We would love to share the night sky with you! With your binoculars, you can see a lot. Be sure to check out the Andromeda Galaxy, which looks especially nice through binoculars. There are also some items in Scorpius that you can see, too. Keep looking up!

  2. I too hope our paths cross in the furture. It is so kind of you to share your hobby/passion with others. So glad I found you two from the RV Nomads movie. Look forward to reading more.

  3. Spent last night at Theodore Roosevelt National Park, star gazing with GeoAstroRV and North Dakota Astronomers! It was an amazing experience, we loved the passion that everyone had for astronomy and sharing it with others! Anxious now to learn more and keep looking to the heavens above! Thanks to all involved!

    1. It was wonderful to meet both of you! Thank you for driving up to the star party. We had a great attendance on Friday night. Saturday night it was much windier, so we had to quit early. We were afraid the big scope was going to knock someone off the ladder! I think the people who attended had a good time.
