 Not About Quartzsite Arizona

Above all this is not a podcast about Quartzsite, Arizona. Certainly I am podcasting from this dusty truck stop town but there’s a lot more to talk about than what’s going on here. Details in Not-About-Quartzsite-Arizona-Bob Davis Podcast 1123.

Restless

Firstly I am getting restless.

Wanderlust

That is to say the old Wanderlust is back.

Talk About It

Furthermore since I’ll be stopped down out¬† here in the desert for awhile let’s talk about restlessness.

Undoubtedly all nomads and travelers feel this restlessness or wanderlust every now and then.

High Vibe

To begin with when I am on the road I feel the highest vibe.

Then when I come ‘home’ to a campground with other nomads I will spend a few weeks stationary.

Or when I return to the Midwest in the summer I am not moving.

Restlessness Returns

Then eventually the restlessness returns.

We All Feel It

I general I think anyone who travels feels this every now and then.

Wanderlust Is A Thing

In fact an experienced traveler or digital nomad might say wanderlust is a thing.

Lots Of Nomads And RV People

As far as Quartzsite Arizona is concerned there are a lot of nomads and RV folks here right now.

YouTube

In this case everyone seems to have a YouTube channel.

Therefore a lot of content about this place and the goings on.

Like High School

Another key point as far as this podcast is concerned is the fact that this miniature media ecosystem can be a lot like high school.

Driven Deeper

Because of this I am driven to go deeper.

No Small Talk

Firstly I don’t do small talk…

No Copying

And I don’t care about what others are doing.

Even more I take a dim view of copying others.

Real Talk

So it is time to talk about something real.

Desire

With this in mind where does the desire for new travel experiences come from?

Time

In effect I think it has something to do with the fact that we are all traveling through time.

Life Is Short

Maybe wanderlust springs from a hidden desire to compensate for the undeniable fact that life is short.

Although this may be true many people compensate by building businesses, families and communities back home.

And I celebrate that.

Different Animals

But a traveler is a different animal.

In sum we seek something new and different.

Or we seek to learn.

We’ll talk about it.

Springbreak-Roadtrip-Part1-Blueridge-Mountains-Bob Davis Podcast 985

Springbreak Roadtrip Part1

First of all it’s time for a Springbreak Roadtrip and part 1 is Virginia through the Blueridge Mountains. Secondly long time listeners know I’ve been handling some personal business in Virginia for the last few weeks. Boy, is it time to get back on the road and we’ll do it in Springbreak-Roadtrip-Part1-Blueridge-Mountains.

Heavy Energy

Most importantly I find driving long distances is the best way to process heavy energy.

Sunshine And Warmth On The Agenda

Consequently I would have been happy with a trip to anywhere but I want sunshine and warmth.

Florida!

Therefore Florida it is.

Panama City Beach Life

When you consider Florida and spring break, certainly Panama City Beach and Pensacola come up. This part of the state is easy to get to on the Interstates.

Back Roads

However I am a back roads nomad. Get the full story in Springbreak-Roadtrip-Part1-Blueridge-Mountains-Bob Davis Podcast 985.

Blue Ridge Switchbacks

So my plan takes me through Southwestern Virginia through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Tennessee. North Carolina. Alabama.

Mountain Roads

In short, mountain roads. Detours. Two lane state and US Highways. Truck Stops. Walmart Parking lots and maybe some camping.

Paths In Life

Above all this gives me a chance to share some thoughts about why we choose certain paths in life.

Choices

In addition the idea that sometimes the universe or higher power, or God checks back with you to make sure you’re confident of the choices you’ve made.

Are You Sure?

That is to say, are you sure?

Nomad Lifestyle

For instance in my life, my commitment to the Nomad Lifestyle and what that means.

Why?

In the same vein, why do some of us choose this approach to life? Why do others choose another way.

Steak Dinner

Meanwhile there’s the road and a steak dinner at a truck stop!

More Depth

Finally I love travelogue podcasts however I think listeners deserve a little more depth from these podcasts. That’s one of the reasons I travel, and want to get out on the back roads.

Connect To Bigger Ideas

To sum up travel is the best way to see, learn and connect my experiences to bigger ideas.

Gulfcoast-Winter-BeachLife-Bob Davis Podcast 970

Gulfcoast Winter Beach Life

Most important Gulfcoast Winter BeachLife can get cold. But it’s still a lot better than winter in Minnesota. Learn more in Gulfcoast-Winter-BeachLife-Bob Davis Podcast 970.

Redneck Riviera

Firstly I’ve been cruising the Gulf Coast. Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and now Texas. Better known as ‘The Redneck Riviera’.

Changing Weather And Time Zones

Secondly I’ve passed through warm and cold weather. Spent some cold nights on the beach.

Hurricane Damage

Even more there’s a lot of hurricane damage down here. A lot.

A Lot To Like On The Gulfcoast

However there is a lot to like about some of the beaches and beach towns along the way.

Port Aransas, Texas

For example my favorite Texas beach down is Port Aransas. I’m camped out on a beautiful beach. When I did Gulfcoast-Winter-BeachLife-Bob Davis Podcast 970, it was in the 80’s and sunny.

Sand Storm On The Beach

On the other hand that night there was a lot of wind. There were sand drifts around Mobile Podcast Command in the morning and it got pretty good.

Getting Stuck At Matagorda

In the same vein, I got stuck on another one of my favorite beaches but managed to get myself unstuck.

Never The Same

In short no no single beach remains the same from one visit to the next.

Taking My Time

Above all the biggest challenge I still face is taking my time.

Hundreds Of Miles

Certainly I am capable of driving hundreds of miles a day. I’ve done it before.

Nomad Experience

On the other hand hundreds of miles a day is not really what the nomad experience is all about.

No Going ‘Home’

For instance I don’t have to ‘go home’.

No Hurry

Moreover while I have a loose schedule there’s no hurry.

Lessons Just Keep Coming

In conclusion the life lessons just keep coming in this effort. Join me on the beach to talk about the experience so far and hear the next objectives in Gulfcoast-Winter-BeachLife-Bob Davis Podcast 970.
