#Nomadlife-Lessons-Part One-Bob Davis Podcast 1139

#Nomadlife Lessons Part One

Altogether after many years as a nomad it’s time to share some lessons in #Nomadlife-Lessons-Part One-Bob Davis Podcast 1139.

With this purpose in mind I set out to cram all the lessons into one podcast.

But it turns out I have a lot of content to share when it comes to nomad lessons.

State Of Mind

In #Nomadlife-Lessons-Part One-Bob Davis Podcast 1139 I begin with our state of mind when we first test the nomad waters.

Accordingly there’s some discussion about economic conditions these days.

Conditions Before You Go

That is to say conditions which might drive people out on the road and into #Nomadlife.

Firstly there is the fact that housing has not decreased in price despite the reduction of inflation.

Triggers

Even more most working people have thirty to forty percent less buying power than they did in 2019.

Certainly part of the reason I got rid of just about everything I owned was the increasing price of rent.

And the overbearing nature of efforts to contain the pandemic.

After that being on the road meant being free.

No More Free Money

In addition back in 2020 there were a number of pandemic relief funds and incentives which helped many to adopt the nomad lifestyle.

All of the sudden those measures are no longer available…

Back To Work Peasant

Significantly as well these days more businesses are exhorting workers to return to the office.

So I think the bloom might be off the rose slightly when it comes to hitting the road…

On the other hand this reality can also be a trigger for chucking the nine to five suburban lifestyle.

Especially when you consider some commutes are now seventy minutes long.

Romance Is Still Strong

However that does not diminish the romance of this alternative lifestyle.

Revenue Stream

Therefore these days one has to have some kind of revenue stream to do this.

Obviously retirees have savings, pensions and social security.

Contrarily younger people might not have those resources.

And you don’t want to hurt your own savings or future retirement.

Temporary Jobs

In view of this fact I spend a little time sharing what I know about some of the temporary jobs available ‘out there’.

Forget YouTube

On the negative side many future nomads imagine themselves making bank from their YouTube channel.

Of course if you have experience creating content that’s one thing…

But chances are a YouTube channel or Instagram is not going to foot the bill for a nomad life.

Most Nomad Content Include Lists

Finally I see a lot of content on line about ‘the three things you have to do before becoming a nomad’ or ‘the sixteen things you need’ and so on.

Certainly some of this is good advice…

Adventure

Equally important though, is the sense of adventure that comes from not knowing too much about something before you do it.

Enlightenment

And realizing you’re getting a lot out of something as you do it.

Detail

I’ll give you a little more content in detail about what this experience is like in the first of these two #nomadlife lessons podcasts.

No Regrets

In conclusion unlike many of the posts these days decrying the lifestyle I have not regretted doing this for one day.

Three-Years-On-The-Road-Bob Davis Podcast 1119

Three Years On The Road

Three Years On The Road and embracing a fourth without reservation. Hear the story in Three-Years-On-The-Road-Bob Davis Podcast 1119.

First of all I started nomad life out with a podcast the very first night I was on the road.

Halloween Podcast

So every year my Halloween is a podcast day.

Fourth Year Of Nomad Travel Coming Up

Second of all I am fully embracing a fourth year on the road starting in November 2023.

Full Commitment

That is to say I have made a full commitment to so called nomad life.

Life On The Road

Altogether these commemorative podcasts provide a record of observations and stories about my life on the road.

Many Thanks

And many people to thank as always.

Certainly I will not have a full list of those to thank.

But the names that come up here I will assume fit this particular podcast.

Crazy

Above all many people ask me about all the ‘crazy’ people and situations I must encounter.

However sometimes the almost mundane nature of our lives as nomads might surprise those back in the world.

Change

In fact the change we encounter is more significant personally than anything else about this life.

Pace

The pace of travel and my life have changed in these three years without a doubt.

Positive

Surprisingly positive change.

Depth

One point often overlooked is the depth and quality of the relationships we form out here.

Face Value

Even more the fact that people accept you at face value.

Same Plane

That is to say we meet and begin our friendships on the same plane.

In The Moment

Regardless of who we thought we were or what we may have done what’s important is who we are in the moment while out here.

Vistas

Furthermore I wouldn’t trade the vistas I have seen through the windshield for anything.

Of course I have missed a lot of TV Shows in the last three years.

Timeless

Nevertheless I have gained timeless friendships and life experiences.

Like A Dream

Accordingly it has been more like a dream than anything else.

Of course I’d point out the details are in Three-Years-On-The-Road-Bob Davis Podcast 1119.

Not Always Easy

All in all I wouldn’t say it was easy.

But it was easier than staying back in the world.

Don’t Wait For Paradise

All things considered if you have something you want to do…

Don’t wait for paradise.

In summary whatever it is…reach out and grab it.

Grand-Canyon-Maroon-Bob Davis Podcast 1117

Grand Canyon Maroon

In Grand-Canyon-Maroon-Bob Davis Podcast 1117 above all we’ll talk about letting go. That is to say sometimes you are forced to just go with the flow.

Goal Driven

Basically we live in a goal driven society.

Moving From Task To Task

Under those circumstances we move from task to task.

Even more we do so without question.

Sudden Need For Patience

So imagine the frustration when we’re confronted with a situation that requires patience.

Letting Go

Or further completely letting go.

Transform and Enlighten

When we do this all of the sudden we become open to experiences that can transform and enlighten.

Points On An Agenda

These days for many travel is a series of points on an agenda.

Once you complete one task you move to the next.

And so on.

Throw The Agenda Away

On the other hand if you throw the agenda away the flow brings sublime experiences.

Control

In fact I have to be shown this again and again by forces beyond my control.

Breakdown At Grand Canyon

And so it is in the Grand Canyon…

When you have a breakdown that requires patience to fix.

Full details in Grand-Canyon-Maroon-Bob Davis Podcast 1117.

Goal Driven

Altogether I am a goal driven…

Intensity

With an intensity to match.

Pause Challenge

So when confronted with a situation that requires me to pause…

It’s a challenge..

Grand Canyon Maroon

All in all I am grateful because I am marooned in the most beautiful place.

The Grand Canyon.

Time

Furthermore I have had ample time to take in as much as I want in this amazing place.

Nomads

Finally we nomads put our vehicles under tremendous stress.

Stress

We never seem to notice we put ourselves under stress in addition.

Stop

Every now and then the Universe says stop.

Certainly we may not want to stop.

However when we do…

Experience

An amazing experience often awaits.

Life Lessons

It’s analogous to life too.

For example how many times do we miss details or experiences because we’re ‘just too busy’.

Taught By Travel

In short another lesson travel teaches.
