Walking The Nomad Labyrinth
Above all travel is a meditation so walking the nomad labyrinth is what it’s all about. What’s a labyrinth? Learn more in Walking-Nomad-Labyrinth-Bob Davis Podcast 1028.
Firstly when I pulled away from my house over a year ago to start this adventure I didn’t really have a mission. A reason for doing what I was doing.
Secondly I learned pretty quickly there is a meditative quality to just driving. Just watching the landscape roll by.
Coast To Coast
And this is what I did consistently for a year. Coast to coast. Border to Border. Crisscrossing the Midwest many times.
These days I’ve decided to slow down. Spend some time in places I’m interested in.
Finding A Footing
Therefore my podcasts have been a little more philosophical lately due to finding new footing in a slower travel approach.
Mission Statement For Second Year
Most importantly right now I am working to define a mission statement for the second year of travel.
Just Scratched The Surface
Because I feel like I have only scratched the surface.
Getting To Know A Place
Whether I am in some dusty Texas beach town or here in Quirky Quartzsite Arizona I am spending a little more time to get to know the town and its people.
Cue The Wanderlust
Certainly I haven’t lost my wanderlust.
And I have detailed my new orientation to higher fuel prices.
Campground Is Home
However I was a little surprised at how easily I’ve settled in on a Bureau of Land Management Campground just north of town.
More Time To Think
As a result I have some time to think in some different ways.
For example lately I’m interested in how the pressures and intensity of urban life doesn’t really effect the nomad.
Certainly we have our trials and tribulations, but even these often become fun challenges.
Learning New Skills
Even more we’re always learning new skills, back road routes and about new campsites and rigs.
Finally what has always interested me is the internal processes we nomads experience.
Common and Extraordinary
And I think those experiences are both common and extraordinary among the nomad community.
Walk About Talk About
In short this is what I have decided to talk about when I am relating my nomad experiences.
That is to say there are plenty of communicators talking about the best bike rack to buy for your rig, or where to get new tires and how to dump your tanks somewhere.
On the other hand these sometimes powerfully emotional experiences we have are not easy to put into words, let alone talk about.
But that is what I have chosen to do.
To sum up some of these musings are better than others, when it comes to a Podcast.
In the same vein it’s all part of the work.
