VanLife Nomad Backlash
Suddenly there’s a Vanlife Nomad Backlash. Certainly it’s fun to be free and living out on the road. What’s the problem? My reaction in Vanlife-Nomad-Backlash-Bob Davis Podcast 980.
Firstly I’ve just recently made a full commitment to living on the road. Learn more about that here.
Secondly extended travel has been a part of these podcasts since the beginning.
However recently some have taken issue with some over the top social media accounts.
Hollywood Has Discovered The Modern Nomad
To clarify reporters and Hollywood have suddenly discovered the nomad trend.
Blame It On Instagram
As a result it seems like detractors want to attack the whole lifestyle as ‘fake’ because of a few over the top Instagram accounts.
Not For Everyone
Meanwhile my experience has been it’s not a lifestyle for everyone.
Demanding And Tough
In fact the nomad lifestyle can be demanding and tough but be very rewarding at the same time.
Nomad Life Is Hardscrabble
In the same vein I haven’t met too many nomads driving around in vehicles costing at least six figures.
The Majesty Of A Walmart Parking Lot
For example a nomad might experience the majesty of a campground in a national forest one week. And the majesty of a Walmart or Truck Stop lot the next.
Adventure and Fun
To sum up it’s not always glamorous. But it’s always an adventure.
Back Out On The Back Road
Most importantly while I am stuck in a driveway in Virginia as we deal with a death in the family I can’t wait to get back on the back road.
In Vanlife-Nomad-Backlash-Bob Davis Podcast 980 it’s time to talk about the real experiences I have had as a newly minted ‘nomad’. And most importantly the depth of those experiences.
Family and Friends
Even more I realize many nomads are interrupting trips with long stays with family and friends. Why? Because we can.
On the other hand. Who can blame us?
Shore Power and A Hot Shower
After months of taking showers in truck stops and cooking over campfires, shore power and a hot shower at ‘home’ are pure luxury.
All About The Vibe
Most importantly is the reality of a true positive vibe that comes from travel in any form.
Doesn’t Matter What Rig You Have
Whether you’re rig is a broken down conversion or a Prevost, you’ve experienced that vibe.
Finally, think about travel without commitments. And going where you want. Just plain fun.
Many People Hitting The Road
In conclusion it’s true there are many people hitting the road for various reasons. As a result the nomad lifestyle and Vanlife have become a trend.
Tear Down Something Just Because Lots Of People Are Doing It
Why is it necessary to attack and tear something down just because a lot of people are doing it?
