Is New Mexico The American Tibet?

Above all the states I’ve visited New Mexico feels like the American Tibet. Details in New-Mexico-American-Tibet-Bob Davis Podcast 995.

Not Really Tibet But…

Firstly I am not suggesting at all that a US State would actually BE Tibet.

Lots Of Travel

However I’ve traveled a lot.

Secondly I never spent too much time in The Land Of Enchantment.

The Land of Enchantment For Sure

Certainly now I have begun to understand why New Mexico owns that motto.

Mountains

For example the Manzano mountains. Not the first thing you’d think of when you consider New Mexico.

Sunsets

On the other hand driving through these mountains and sunset was a mind blowing experience,

History

In addition maybe it’s the history in the state going way back.

Unique Experiences

But if the middle part of the state isn’t your thing there are other unique experiences waiting.

Albuquerque

I mention it but then, there’s Breaking Bad. So…

Roswell and Taos

Of course Las Cruces, Roswell, Santa Fe, and Taos.

Heading North and West

To clarify I took 285 North out of Roswell. connected up with 60 West, then to 41 North.

Hey Wait! This Is Like…American Tibet!

After riding along these US and State Highways I started to come to the conclusion New Mexico has a sort of Tibet like quality.

Vistas

For instance wind swept vistas at any time of the day. And the most mysterious of all, White Sands.

National Forests

During this part of the trip I ended up in national forest campgrounds in the Cibola, all the way up to the northern part of the state in the Carson National Forest. Not to mention some of the best Bureau Of Land Management sites I’ve seen anywhere.

Amazing.

Travel’s Real Value

Finally I’ve certainly talked about the value of travel.

Wander Without A Schedule

And yes, sometimes it feels spiritual. Especially when you can wander without a schedule.

In the same vein it’s the wandering.

Forget The Gotta Haves Just Go

Moreover the wandering without worrying about getting somewhere or the ‘gotta haves’ in life.

Happy Accidents

In conclusion sometimes those happy accidents make all the difference in the world.

To sum up I have never been to Tibet.

Meditation

However the wind, mountains, sunsets and the solitary nature of my own personal travel plans brought the Land of Enchantment up a notch in my mind.

Vast Distances and Views

Most importantly remember New Mexico travelers are dealing with vast distances. In addition a long history.

Overall a very different experience.

Suggestions and Support For Nomad Life

Certainly I get a lot of suggestions. And I welcome the support and interest in this nomad life effort.

Recent Suggestions

Firstly, one of recent suggestion was, get a camera in the truck. Just turn it on and record. That would be my ‘video’ channel. I appreciate the fact that people want to help and participate.

Secondly it just doesn’t work that way for me.

Nomad Life Is An Internal Process

For instance my experience is this is very much an internal process. I never knew how much noise my brain made until I decided to hit the road. Alone.

True Freedom

Even more once you give away everything you own and release the connection to place the potential to experience true freedom is there.

Your Mind Makes Noise

However the mind resists. Makes noise. Produces various reactions.

New Understanding

But until I hit the road permanently I never really fully understood.

Intensely Personal Experiences

In the same vein these are intensely personal experiences.

Personal Memories Too

As a result the memories are also personal. Although I work in the audio medium it’s very difficult to relate those internal processes, let alone produce videos about it.

A Challenging Time

Finally we’re living through a challenging time. I don’t feel it as much because I am mobile. But it’s there.

Planetary Conjunction

Above all on a date which marks the ending of the darkness and the beginning of the light, and a planetary conjunction to boot, I have some observations about that too!

Sights Smells Feelings

To sum up nomad life for me has been a jumbled collection of visual memories. Sights. Smells. Feelings.

Covering A Lot Of Ground

From Minnesota all the way through the middle of the country and deep south, to the deserts of the American Southwest.

Only Just Started

In short like life itself I’ve covered a lot of ground but it feels like I’ve only just started.
