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.
Firstly I am getting restless.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Because of this I am driven to go deeper.
No Small Talk
Firstly I don’t do small talk…
And I don’t care about what others are doing.
Even more I take a dim view of copying others.
So it is time to talk about something real.
With this in mind where does the desire for new travel experiences come from?
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.
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.
