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.

Updates-Loose-Ends-Clarifications-Bob Davis Podcast 1069

Updates Loose Ends and Clarifications

Firstly from time to time I do updates clarifications and tie up loose ends. Find out why in Updates-Loose-Ends-Clarifications-Bob Davis Podcast 1069.

Dream World

Secondly nomad life is a dream world.

Sailing On The Sea

That is to say this life is more like sailing between islands.

Doesn’t Matter What Day It Is

Certainly when you’re out on the water you don’t care what day it is.

Series

Because I have been doing podcasts on the inflation and economic issues facing nomads since the beginning of 2022 they have become kind of a series.

Fighting Complex Topics

And every now and then I find myself struggling with the complexities and left brain nature of finance and economics.

Dreamy Nomad Life

Even more due to the dreamy nature of nomad life.

The Great Basin

So I am up in the mountains above The Great Basin.

Food and Fuel Prices

Considering the intensity of food and fuel prices this is a perfect time and place to make some corrections updates and clarifications about these issues from podcast 1068.

Taking A Pause

However as usual it is also time to take a pause.

Sounds Of The Night

Listen to the night sounds.

Sundown In The Mountains

Enjoy the sundown and late evening dusk here at Great Basin National Park.

Talk About Prices

But it’s also a perfect time to clarify why I believe prices will continue to go down.

Slow Down Coming

Moreover why I think we’re headed for a major economic slow down in the near future.

Complex

Finally I will warn listeners the second half of this podcast might feel little complex.

No Political Rhetoric

On the other hand you usually don’t find these explanations free of political rhetoric in most places.

Cheaper Food and Fuel

Above all my goal is to give hope to fellow nomads rooting for cheaper food and fuel.

Simplify

In addition my goal is to try and simplify a bit of the talk about the economy.

Information You Can Use

Therefore we’ll have some information we can use.

What To Look For

In the same vein at least we will know what to look for in coming weeks to confirm some of my conclusions in Updates-Loose-Ends-Clarifications-Bob Davis Podcast 1069.

Last Economic Podcast For Awhile

To sum up this will be the last so called economic podcast I’ll do for awhile.

Full Travel Vibe…Next

So we’ll be back to the full travel vibe until we hit another turning point.

Monsoon-Musings-Bob Davis Podcast 1066

Monsoon Musings

Late summer means the Monsoon season out west and that means it’s time for some Monsoon Musings. In my case that means midnight between downpours. Up in the mountains in Monsoon-Musings-Bob Davis Podcast 1066.

Monsoons Are Not Created Equal

Firstly every year out here is different when it comes to the Monsoon.

Bad Monsoon

Secondly this is a bad Monsoon.

Above all it seems like every afternoon the thunderheads come up and the downpours start.

Spectacular Storms

Certainly the storms are more spectacular in the deserts down toward Phoenix.

Utah Monsoon

However I am in Utah.

And Utah has its share of summer storms.

Flooding

For example it doesn’t take much rain to produce flooding and a lot of mud.

Campsite Flooded

In fact my campsite was flooded when I recorded Monsoon-Musings-Bob Davis Podcast 1066.

Stay On The Black Top

On the other hand that is why nomads avoid sandy and dirt roads this time of year and park on the black top.

Reflections

But it’s a great time for reflections.

Musings

Monsoon Musings.

In the same vein I have been up in Salt Lake for a lot longer than I would have liked.

Consequently I have a few stories from my truck stop and Walmart parking lot stays.

In addition I had a chance to scout the whole area for great campgrounds.

Bryce Canyon

Finally I headed up to the Bryce Canyon area and camping at King’s Creek in the Dixie National Forest.

[Editor’s Note: Of course I called it King’s Crossing in the podcast!)

Dixie National Forest

To clarify this campground is about nine thousand feet up. When it rains there it’s cold.

Fog!

And foggy.

Red Rock Road

Therefore I was happy to get back down to the desert near Red Rock.

Two Takeaways

To clarify there’s two takeaways from this podcast.

Desperation In The Truck Stops and Parking Lots

Firstly I don’t think I have seen this many homeless and desperate people in the truck stops and parking lots in my travels.

And Utah has services and plenty of room for broken down car dwellers.

Nomads Have A Dream

Secondly it’s been my experience that nomads have a dream.

That is to say many nomads dream of a piece of land somewhere in the mountains.

Or beaches.

Forests too.

In short we talk a lot about what one would need for the perfect off grid ‘cabin in the woods’.

My Heart Is On The Road

But on the other hand my heart is not in those discussions although I don’t mind having them over a fireside steak and a piping hot cup of coffee.

My Cabin In The Woods

In conclusion Mobile Podcast Command is my cabin in the woods, mountain or beach.

Gratitude

And I am very grateful to stay on the move.
