Reviving nomadbase

I'm chatting with Gary St now. Good times. We're discussing ways to revive this website. He's hopefully going to edit this blog post to refine and add stuff.

Drupal 7 and cleanup

There was a Facebook messaging thread about this website and I got off my ass and did stuff. I finally actually upgraded this website to Drupal 7 (I did it last May as well, but with a copy, sometimes it's better to go about it Chuck Norris style). I also cleaned up a lot of things:

- Removed spam,
- disabled unused modules,
- deleted unused content types,
- simplified text formats (and enabled Markdown!)

I'm still working on cleaning up but I thought it was already good enough to add a blog post.


Nomadwiki is the new wiki we started to fill the gap between hitchwiki+trashwiki and wikivoyage. No expensive hotels or restaurants, but place for wild camping, cheap ass hostels, budget flights and things like that. Another new project worth mentioning is, a website about living without or with less money. Hope you like it.

Meanwhile itself hasn't moved much forward but Nomadwiki could be a good place for progress. If you know any public nomadbases, please start wiki articles about it, the Nomadbase article is a good starting point. And I'm always happy to help, you can contact me in several ways. is okay if you don't know any other way (just make sure to select another category than SPAM).

No air - smoking or not smoking in nomad bases

Last night Erga and I went to the Gypsy Swing. We couldn't find it at first, when we finally got there I asked if there was smoking in the big hall. The guy said no. We went in after paying a "donation". Then of course the space was full of smoke. We went back, asked our donation back and left. Apparently Berlin is still in the stone age. The same goes for the unconference. The only smoke-free space is in the back, without daylight. It is annoying. We spent some time in the smoky front, which is okay when you're drinking some alcohol, you don't really notice. But when we went out and then back in again at the gypsy place we couldn't take it at all.
