50 Nicest Places in America Tour

Where do I start?

I am considering doing a tour of the 50 Nicest Places in America, as determined by the Reader's Digest November 2019 issue. 

I created a link to an excel I crafted of the list of the 50 places.

I would logically begin this tour next year, in the Spring. Not sure of an exact date as yet, but that will be decided later on. I am currently seeking funding and a female partner for the trip. This would be an adventure lasting several months. Thinking it might be best to either rent or purchase an RV to roam. That way I can set up an on-board podcast/vidcast studio and turn the trip into a several months long series. Would need to use satellite to communicate on occasion.

Customization of classes

I am currently taking a class at Geekwise Academy at Bitwise Industries in Fresno and I am rather bored with it at this point. At first, the classes looked great, and I felt they were a perfect match for me. But, now as time wears on and I approach the conclusion of my second class in this collection, I am less motivated and more frustrated. I think I have happened upon the realization that I still am unsure of what I truly want beyond living life. I am confused. I am lacking proper direction. 

I am thinking that that the ideal setup would be to customize classes to the needs of individual students. This world is all about personalization and customization and it should be fully available to everyone.

I have more to say, just unsure how to say it. I lose steam and get tired of writing quickly. Now posting.

Help Fund My Podcasts

I have several items available for immediate purchase and more will be posted soon. Add these pages to your favorites lists: 

I also occasionally post things for sale on eBay and you can visit my page: https://www.ebay.com/usr/riker17 

Any money made goes to my podcasting career, such as hosting fees, service fees, and general maintenance. 

Keep this list handy, never know what will be posted next! 

Thank you.


Other sites

I proudly encourage friendly competition. I know my abilities and strengths and weaknesses and I have no problem teaming up with others to promote one another. Maybe you like my service, perhaps you prefer my competitor's business. Not a concern for me. That is why I proudly encourage you to listen to all the available podcasts out there, starting with Randy Cassingham's Uncommon Sense podcast. If we forego the outright manipulative competitive spirit and work together, we can all improve and benefit from one another. Being first or last is not important, just placing is doable and reasonable. 

I will continue to suggest more sites as time goes by. Better is not the best. 


Alexa Skill

A year ago, the day before Trump was sworn in, I thought about ways to improve the Alexa tool that I had purchased shortly after it was publicly released by Amazon years before. The picture below is one of my many ideas. One I chose to write down. Problem is, I need help with implementation. I have done some reading about how skills are created, but I still do not understand. That is why I seek assistance from whatever source that could make it happen. 

I am not very tech-savvy, nor do I have unlimited funds, but I figured a well-promoted crowdfunding campaign could be a possibility. If not, let me know what your better suggestion is. 

I am a perfectionist and I dislike errors and repetition, but I also recognize that there are some things that are unavoidable in the process. I am seeking others to join me in this lifetime adventure. Others who are smarter, more knowledgable, eager to try anything to finish a goal. 

Do you think you can be a part of my team? Contact me, let us see what develops.

One week to go...

One week until Christmas Day. I am excited. I will receive, and give, several gifts and will likely post about them. This time of year is difficult for me, as I presently have no life, no wife, and no prospects. Oh well, just better this way. I really do not require any of the above anyways. Just gotta be me and that is the best anyone can expect. Thanks, and good night!
