Simplicity In A Storm

Most importantly there is simplicity in a storm because all you can do is sit there and experience it! Learn more in Simplicity-In-A-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 1070.

Life Is Complicated

https://www.aconsciousrethink.com/18984/why-is-life-so-complicated/

The Nomad Solution

Certainly nomads will agree being out in the middle of nowhere better than being in a city.

Energy

Firstly there’s a kind of energy in forests, mountains and deserts.

Smooth.

Calm.

Opposite In The City

Secondly you get the opposite energy in cities.

Some Small Towns Not Good

Even more these days in small towns.

Which is a surprise.

Suburbs?

For instance the “Suburbanization” of small towns like Flagstaff, Arizona.

Carnival In The Red Rocks

Or the “Wisconsin Dells” approach of places like Sedona, Arizona.

Finally there is the Internet.

Zombie Companies

And modern companies.

Lists

We all have our lists.

I’ll give you my list in Simplicity-In-A-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 1070.

Experience A Full Monsoon Storm

But for this podcast it is the opportunity to finally fully record one of the west’s magnificent Monsoon storms.

Headphones Please

Even more the chance for listeners to sit back, put their headphones on and have the same experience I had recording.

There Has To Be A Better Way

Above all I can’t help feeling like there has to be a better way.

I Just Don’t Know What It Is

To clarify all these ‘improvements’ were supposed to make our lives easier.

How’d That Turn Out For You?

In short I am not sure anyone thinks it turned out that way.

Hitting The Road Is The Antidote

Above all this is the main reason I hit the road.

And that is true of many others.

Relax

In the same vein there is a very relaxing approach to life when you’re a nomad.

Hey! There’ No Signal In Paradise

Especially when you find yourself unable to check your social media, send and receive messages, or even make a call.

It Will Have To Wait

It’ll have to wait, whatever it is!

Nature Rewires Us

Likewise there’s something about nature that has rewired my city brain.

Storms Sun Vistas And Fun

In conclusion I’d rather be out here with the storms and sun, vistas and fun, than the city.

After that what can one say?

The Dream Is Alive…In Portland?

Sitting and drinking in cafes in urban neighborhoods just doesn’t compare to the mist after the rain, a fire, and a simple cup of coffee after the rain.

Colorado-Abundance-Bob Davis Podcast 1060

Colorado Abundance

Firstly talking about Colorado and Abundance these days is a little strange. Learn more in Colorado-Abundance-Bob Davis Podcast 1060.

Scarcity?

Secondly given all the problems we’re dealing with maybe I should do a podcast about scarcity.

But I don’t feel that way.

What Is Important

Above all in these difficult times we all have to assess what is actually important.

Not About Material Possessions

And I don’t think of abundance as being related to material goods.

A Lot Of Something

Certainly the word abundance means a lot of something. Anything.

Keep It Simple

Most importantly I have come to believe that if you appreciate what you have and keep things simple you will feel abundance.

Even Austere

That is to say a sense of comfort and having a lot of what you need.

Pressure Cookers

Of course living in a pressure cooker because you have to pay bills doesn’t contribute to a sense of safety or abundance.

Less Is Indeed More

On the other than it is a surprise to have learned through the nomad experience the less I have the more abundant I feel.

Losses

For example we have all dealt with the loss of loved ones in the last couple of years.

Left Behind

Even more we often find ourselves overwhelmed by how much is left behind.

Is This Important?

Therefore one wonders whether any of this stuff is important?

Keep It Simple

Meanwhile many people are downsizing and simplifying.

Pop Culture Goes Dark

In the same vein “abundance” used to be a big word in pop culture.

You don’t see it as much these days.

Rich?

In addition if abundance is defined as being rich many of us are going to feel like we have fallen behind.

Not At The Gas Pump

Moreover one needs only one trip to the gas station to feel poor.

What I Need

Meanwhile as I camp and roll through Colorado and the rest of the Southwestern US I find myself getting what I need, when I need it.

Million Dollar View

Furthermore many million dollar views and experiences in the forests and campgrounds often for free.

Too Beautiful For Words

Finally some of these experiences are too beautiful for words.

Choice

In conclusion real freedom is being able to choose the experiences we have.

Breakout

In short we don’t have to live in a prison we created.

Escape

There are lots of ways to escape.

Always-Something-Bob Davis Podcast 1057

Always Something

Due to the realities of Nomad Life It’s always something. A phrase we often use but don’t like very much. Learn more in Always-Something-Bob Davis Podcast 1057.

On The Move

Firstly I am on the move again.

Hidden Problems

Secondly being on the move often means problems develop that have hidden themselves when you’re just hanging out.

Control Emotions

Above all I’ve learned to get control of my emotions when I do have a problem.

Opportunity

That is to say stop, look up and ask yourself what the opportunity is rather than give way to your worst fears.

And so it was this week.

Off Course

First of all I was off course.

Use Maps Not Google

To clarify there is no substitute for a good actual map.

Certainly Google or Apple Maps have their uses.

Global View

But having a real map gives you a global view of where you’re headed.

Oops

Therefore that’s how I ended up in near Lake Havasu when I was headed to Scottsdale.

More Fun

However the fun does not stop there.

I Love The Smell of Diesel In The Morning

In short that’s when I noticed the smell of fuel.

Check out Always-Something-Bob Davis Podcast 1057 to find out more.

Experience

Therefore driving down a mountain nearly 25 miles with some kind of fluid pouring out of Mobile Podcast Command was quite an experience.

Pray

After praying to get to Parker Arizona and find a good mechanic I ended up at MNR Racing.

Oddly enough a church was right down the block.

The Saga Is Not Over

Finally the sags is not over at the recording of this podcast.

These guys are closed til the 10th of June.

However they have decided to check out the truck and find out what the problem is.

Remain Calm and Carry On

Finally I remained calm.

Did not allow a relatively minor problem ruin my day, or life.

Where’s That Bowl Of Cherries?

To sum up these days life on the road can be a challenge.

In addition life back in the world isn’t exactly a bowl of cherries either.

Surprises

In short life is full of surprises.

It’s always something!

(I may have referred to MNR Racing as MSM racing in this podcast. I don’t know why I do that! In any case the proper links to MNR’s FB site are linked and I can’t say enough good things about them. Thanks Again!)
