Grand-Canyon-Southwest-Masterpeice-Bob Davis Podcast 996

Grand Canyon Southwest Masterpiece

Firstly the Grand Canyon is a Southwest Masterpiece. Learn more in my podcast from the Desert View Campground in Grand-Canyon-Southwest-Masterpeice-Bob Davis Podcast 996.

Blowing Through It

Secondly I think far too many people blow through the Canyon on a one day junket.

Certainly if you only have one day that’s one thing.

Vast Experience

However the Grand Canyon is a vast experience.

And if the traveler can take their time with it, all the better.

Got Lucky

Above all I got lucky. I rolled up to a full campground and managed to get a two day reservation.

Paradise

As a result I was able to spend two nights that felt like a week in paradise.

500 Feet From My Campfire

For example can you imagine having the south rim of the Grand Canyon less than five hundred feet from your campfire?

Moreover this national park just turned one hundred in 2019.

But it was closed in 2020. So I rolled into a campground that’s been closed for about a year.

Desert View Watchtower

During my stay on the south rim I fell in love with the Desert View Watchtower.

Sunsets

In the same vein the gathering of visitors and campers every night for the sunsets was a great experience.

Returning To A Sense Of Nature and Optimism

Most importantly I think we all need time like this to return to a sense of nature and optimism.

For example there’s something about the rock, desert flora and fauna and the trails.

Sense Of Freedom

Meanwhile we’re not feeling the sense of freedom the Grand Canyon evokes, these days.

But we want to.

We need to.

Night Time Walk Through Live…And Some UFO’s

Learn more in my night time walk through the campground in Grand-Canyon-Southwest-Masterpeice-Bob Davis Podcast 996.

Come Alive

Similarly when you’re staying at the park for any length of time you come alive.

Different Vibe

Certainly you realize this is a different feeling from the vibe at the mall, doctors office, and especially in traffic.

To sum up it’s a special place.

Finally thanks to great camp hosts, and everyone working very hard to get the place open and ready for summer.

I’ll go back!

Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990

Nomad Relaunch Going West Next

Above all it has been a minute or two and now it’s time for a nomad relaunch to go west. Details in Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990.

Florida and Outer Banks

First of all, just returned from my trip to Florida and along the Outer Banks.

Podcast Avoidance

In addition I avoided doing a podcast for at least week.

Coming To The End Of Family Work

Most importantly we were coming to the end of our work here in Richmond related to family.

No More From The Driveway Podcasts

Secondly it did not feel right to me, doing another spate of podcasts from my mom’s driveway in Richmond.

Back On The Road

Consequently I made the decision to get back on the road.

Questions About Nomad Life

Meanwhile time for a podcast with some of the questions people keep asking me about my decision to go nomad

Future Travel

And some plans for future travels.

Normies With Questions

For example people wonder why I don’t “live somewhere” and travel for a few weeks and “come home”.

We’re Worried About You

Moreover I’ve been told people are “worried” about me.

Getting The Nomad Thing Explained

Finally it’s clear the so called normal world just doesn’t get the nomad thing.

No Half Million Dollar RV For Me

Certainly I did not sell a big house and buy a half million dollar RV. Nothing even close.

Actually Having Fun

However people I’ve met actually having fun are driving aged trucks in various states of disrepair.

Flight Of Fancy

Lots of flights of fancy in Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990 to clarify some of these ideas.

Pure Freedom Through Forever Travel

In the same vein there’s really nothing that compares to the feeling of pure freedom which is part of travel without having to come home, because you are home.

Are We Really Free?

In short I wonder whether we are truly free in this country.

Burdens

Burdened with debt.

Uncomfortable

Forced to work in situations we don’t feel comfortable in.

Restrictions

Restricted in one way or another these days.

We Can Drive If We Want To

In conclusion for the time being the one thing we can do is drive. See the country when, where and how we want.

I can’t wait to head back out.

Nomad-Uses-Downtime-Bob Davis Podcast 978

Firstly how a nomad uses downtime is key. Most importantly a family emergency has pulled me off the road for the short term. Learn how I plan to use the time in Nomad-Uses-Downtime-Bob Davis Podcast 978.

Secondly truth be told; I am already hearing the highway song.

On the other hand I am finding some valuable uses for this time.

Certainly I am never restless on the road.

And I was surprised to find myself sleeping more deeply no matter where I stopped for the night.

To clarify I’ll just say there is a beautiful simplicity to being a nomad. I am never bored and I welcome each day’s brand new challenge.

On the other hand now that I am ‘static’ the challenge is how not to go stir crazy.

Therefore Nomad-Uses-Downtime-Bob Davis Podcast 978 is about using this time to take care of my family. Even more to plan and prepare for when the adventure begins anew!

As the result of this experience I really believe now that travel raises our consciousness significantly. There are interesting ties to near death experiences I talk about in this podcast.

Consequently I have been able to produce yet another podcast that doesn’t ruin the great travel vibe with political chatter. Nothing makes me happier.

In short while these are difficult times the nomad in me remains optimistic and excited about returning to the back roads again.

In conclusion while nomads have enough trouble defending their lifestyle to relatives, there’s a powerful urge to plan, prepare, repair and revive.

My mom wouldn’t have it any other way.
