Dennis the Nomad

jump to main content


This is the personal website of Dennis Draheim, a/k/a Dennis the Nomad. It exists primarily as a repository for the poems I've written over the past few years while travelling the USA in my converted Ford Transit camper van. [Whether they are deserving of this preservation I leave to the opinions of the reader.]

Does this site look primitive? That's by design. Here you will find no Javascript, no constantly loading videos, no popups, no ads. I find the modern Web to be bloated, slow, and with a very low signal-to-noise ratio. This site's design is a reaction to that trend.

This site is also available via Gopher at [gopher://].
