No-Politics-Better-Path-Bob Davis Podcast 1138

No Politics A Better Path

Firstly it’s time for some real talk about why No Politics is the better path for me. Check out No-Politics-Better-Path-Bob Davis Podcast 1138 for details.

Secondly in order to explain this I do have to spend a little time talking about political science.

But no personalities or issues in this podcast.

No Political Content

Or any podcast or YouTube video I do.

In fact this has been my policy for more than three years now.

Metamorphosis

To clarify a metamorphosis for me began around 2020…

which at length changed my approach to content on my podcasts.

Long Time Listeners Already Know

All things considered my subscribers and listeners know this has been my policy.

On the other hand I have new listeners and subscribers both on these podcasts and through YouTube.

Why?

Even more people have been asking me why I don’t talk about politics…

Don’t ‘Should’ me Brah

Or in like manner suggesting I “should”.

Better Path For Me

Therefore it’s time to say again why the no politics content rule is a better path for me.

Political Science

More importantly it’s necessary to discuss political science for a little bit of time in this podcast.

Rancor

Because of course so much of social media content is devoted to back and forth arguments and rancor about national personalities and national issues.

Easier To Listen

Above all I can’t really write it the way I say it in this podcast…

Socially Corrosive

but so much of this socially corrosive rancor in on the social media platforms where people complain about ‘the media’.

Useless Energy

With this in mind a great deal of national government in the US is not subject to individual votes in the same manner local government is.

Yet so many of these ‘arguments’ have to do with national issues.

Ruining The Vibe

Overall though the reason I think this is the best path for me is that political talk ruins the travel vibe.

Four More Years

Thirdly I have been a nomad for four years now.

Positive Vibe

The first thing to remember about the nomad lifestyle is it carries a very high positive vibe.

We Are More

Furthermore this experience taught me we can be and are so much more than yelling and screaming at each other across the back fence.

Why Bring The Nightmare To The Dream?

In the final analysis when someone chooses a lifestyle that is unique…

It’s most important that one of the drivers of the decision to choose this lifestyle is to experience more and be more.

In the long run, why bring the nightmare to the dream?

Finally I do not feel all this political yelling and screaming is positive at all.

Certainly not for the kind of content I have grown to love.

Still-Captivated-By-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1130

Still Captivated By Nomad Life

Firstly Still-Captivated-By-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1130 includes a clip from a syndicated radio show because the hosts were talking about me! It reminded me that nomad life still captivates people.

Old Friends

Secondly a few years ago I visited my old friend Max who produces and fills in on the Bob and Sherrie show.

Here’s a link to the podcast we did together a few years ago when I first started my nomad journey.

Background

Altogether the podcast we did together gives the listener a little background on our history.

Series On The Nomad Experience

Finally I have been doing kind of a series on the current state of the nomad experience.

Quartzsite For The Winter

In fact I am camped out here in the Southwestern Arizona desert in Quartzsite for the winter.

Drawbacks

As much as I love nomad life my most recent podcast talked about some of the drawbacks I have experienced this winter.

And talks about my desire to get more out of the lifestyle.

Audio From The Show Included

So I thought it was appropriate to play the clip from the Bob and Sherrie show recently where they were talking about my experience.

No End To My Nomad Roaming Days

Because I really have no intention to end my nomad roaming days.

Technology

Even more I believe as technology continues to improve…

More Nomads

In addition it’s important to point out that there are many different tribes in this lifestyle.

That is to say there are digital nomads as well as various workers who travel.

And plenty of others who travel in a like manner.

International

Analogous to nomads in the US are other ‘tribes’ in Europe, Asia and other international locations.

Why Are People Captivated By This Lifestyle

Eventually I get to reasons people are captivated by this lifestyle.

Details

Coupled with a few more details some might not have heard about my own experience.

Better When The Wheels Are Turning

All things considered part of my frustration with Quartzsite this year stems from the fact that I do not like sitting.

As I have noted I always feel better when the wheels are turning.

More

However I still believe I want a little more out of this experience.

And I’ll be talking about that as it develops in future months.

So, check out Still-Captivated-By-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1130…

And thanks again to Bob and Sherrie and Max for talking about my nomad experience.

Nomad-Look-Back-2023-Bob Davis Podcast 1125

Nomad Look Back 2023

Firstly it’s time for a look back at 2023 from the nomad perspective. Details in Nomad-Look-Back-2023-Bob Davis Podcast 1125.

No Rankings

Secondly there won’t be any rankings in this podcast.

Lessons Learned

All in all I learned a lot of lessons this year.

And share them with podcast subscribers and listeners.

Here and Now

To begin with there’s something about nomad life that keeps me in the ‘here and now’.

As a result a year in Nomad Life can feel like ten years.

Memories

So our memories can be spotty.

Even over a year’s time.

Travel

Especially when you travel as much as I have this year.

Certainly I remember where I was last year at this time.

After that it gets a little spotty.

In the first place my plan was to hang around Southwestern Arizona until Memorial Day.

But a death in the family brought me all the way back to Wisconsin by April 1st.

Winter Again

Because spring in the upper Midwest comes late I spent over a month parked in a big shed.

Summer On The Lake Shore

Finally getting to my little piece of heaven on the shores of a Wisconsin lake.

On the other hand when summer finally came it was glorious.

In spite of all that happened it was fires and dinners over the fire through the whole summer.

Headed East Coast

Then, headed across the center of the country to the East Coast.

Back Roads

One of the experiences I will remember afterwards forever was crossing the middle of the country on back roads.

Rural America

Especially avoiding all the big cities.

New Hampshire

Moreover spending a month in New Hampshire during the summer didn’t suck either.

West Again

Now I headed west again.

Gaps

In like manner I have trouble remembering the whole trip back west until I got to Tennessee, Arkansas and especially Oklahoma.

Grand Canyon

Finally getting stuck in the Grand Canyon was the best serendipitous moment of the whole summer.

Back To Southwestern Arizona

Then back here to Quartzsite, Arizona for the fourth year.

Travel Teaches

To sum up I think travel mellows us and teaches us.

Back To The Now

By all means the here and now focus of Nomad Life also changes.

Details in the podcast.
