Post Eclipse TakeĀ  A Breath Bob Davis

Firstly eclipses put out a lot of energy so post eclipse it’s good to take a breath. We’ll do that in Post-Eclipse-Take-A-Breath-Bob Davis Podcast 1055.

Front And Center Witness

Secondly as a nomad I have been front and center to witness three big eclipses.

Scope And Power Of An Eclipse

Above all very few natural events compare in their scope and power with a eclipse.

Tex-Mex!

For example as for this eclipse we had a big Tex-Mex Nomad dinner.

Coffee and Conversation

We drank gallons of coffee and talked for four hours.

Energy Dropped After

Finally after it was all over all of us dropped.

More Sleep Please

Even more two or three days later we’re still grabbing more sleep.

That’s how it is.

New Friends

Most importantly I am again reminded about getting to know new friends.

Community

Certainly the community aspect of slower travel is one of its major benefits.

Barnstormer…But

That is to say I am a barnstormer.

I think nothing of travel from west coast to east.

High Price Of Fuel

However the high price of fuel currently has us all stopped down in the desert.

Million Dollar View

Meanwhile I have a million dollar view here at the Imperial Dam Long Term Visitor Area. Right on the border of California and Arizona.

Learning

Therefore I am learning more about other nomads and campgrounds.

Planning

In the same vein this was part of my plan anyway.

In short when I blaze trails without stopping I don’t get the feel of an area or its people.

Yuma And Other Towns

When I stop after that I learn about Yuma, Arizona. Or some other southwestern towns.

And I love it.

Total Lunar Eclipse

To sum up all of this was accentuated by a beautiful total lunar eclipse on the evening of May15th 2022.

Count My Blessings

In addition it is an opportunity to count my blessings at this location.

Future Plans

And look ahead to plans for the rest of the summer.

In conclusion will I continue my nomad journey?

Above all I am watching economic developments like a hawk. For a synopsis podcast click here.

But I don’t think I’ve even started on my nomad journey!

Trials Tribulations and Victory

Firstly if you’ve ever been stuck in the sand you know the meaning of Trials Tribulations and if you’re lucky Victory. Learn more in Trials-Tribulations-Victory-Bob Davis Podcast 1053.

Trials

Secondly it happened to me just a few weeks ago. Now it was someone else’s turn.

Tribulations

And it was my turn to help.

No Guarantee

Certainly there are no guarantees in this story.

Solving Problems

But sometimes three people have all they need to solve a problem.

Extra Help

With a little extra help.

Amazed At The Bonds Of Nomads

Above all I am amazed at the bond nomads have.

And Veterans

Even more the bond I witnessed that our armed services veterans have.

It’s All Here

Most importantly it’s all here in Trials-Tribulations-Victory-Bob Davis Podcast 1053.

Forgotten How To Work Together

I think one our biggest problems these says has to do with the fact that we all seemed to have forgotten how to work together and stay with a problem long enough to see some kind of progress.

Help From Above Too

In addition when you put in the effort sometimes you get a little unexpected help from above.

Step Up

I was willing to step up. As a result I learned something.

Takes A Team

On the other hand I certainly wasn’t the one who wouldn’t quit. I got help in that regard from my friends.

Skoolie

And another nomad camper with a Skoolie.

Reinforcement

However the idea of refusing to quit and being willing with stay with it was reinforced due to this experience.

Land Of The Nomad

Subsequently there was a lot of talk among us about how these experiences are much more the norm out in the land of the nomad than back home.

Nomad Life

In the same vein it’s one of the great things about nomad life.

Step Up And Share

In short we’re always ready to step up to help and share if we can.

Lessons To Be Applied Elsewhere

Finally I think those same lessons can be applies to the greater question of our national future.

Working Together

That is to say working together.
