Summer Travel Solitaire 2022 Review

Firstly doing a summer travel solitaire 2022 review means defining what low and slow travel is. Details in Summer-Travel-Solitaire-2022-Review-Bob Davis Podcast 1071.

Taking My Time

Secondly taking my time has allowed me to opportunity to meet people and experience the American Southwest more completely.

Not A Beginner

And I am not a beginner when it comes to travel.

Deeper Experience

However I have enjoyed a deeper experience of this part of the country this year than ever before.

Solitaire

Even more my experience has been solitaire.

Why Choose The Nomad Path

Certainly Summer-Travel-Solitaire-2022-Review-Bob Davis Podcast 1071 gives me an opportunity to open up a little about why I chose the nomad path.

Thousand Mile Chunks

In addition shifting from barnstorming across the country in great thousand mile plus chunks has made a huge difference in fuel consumption.

Four States In Depth

Consequently I got to know four states in depth this summer.

For instance, Arizona, Colorado, Utah and Eastern California.

Made A Good Plan

Most importantly I made a good plan.

Stuck To The Plan

Moreover I stuck to that plan through the summer.

In the same vein nomads often trouble sticking to the plan.

Likewise this nomad!

Traveling Alone

To sum up what has traveling alone been like?

Winter In Quartzsite

And why spend winter in Quartzsite Arizona?

Pivotal Time

Finally I think we all understand we’re living through a pivotal time.

On The Road Is Special

Above all experiencing this time on the road is really special.

Depressed Farm Towns

For example I’ve spend some time in California’s depressed farm towns.

Hippie Towns

And hippie towns in Colorado.

Forest Fires

Experienced a forest fire in Arizona.

Small Towns

And Utah’s great small towns.

Fort Collins and SnowMass Village

In addition I got to house it in Fort Collins and SnowMass.

Run The Gamut

So my experiences have run the gamut.

Kick Back Time

In conclusion it’s time to kick back and rest in Southern Arizona.

2023’s Podcast and Travel Plans

And plan next year’s podcast and travel effort.

Never Disappoints

Even though Quartzsite never disappoints when it comes to content!

Sacrifice-And-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1065

Sacrifice And Nomad Life

Above all after nearly two years on the road it’s a good time to talk about Sacrifice And Nomad life. We’ll do it in Sacrifice-And-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1065.

Not Forced

Firstly this life wasn’t forced on me.

Sacrifice

Secondly I sacrificed a great deal by making the decision to go on the road.

Conversation

Certainly this has been a topic of conversation in these podcasts.

Utah

But these days I am in Utah.

Even more I am in Utah waiting for truck service, among other things.

Time To Think

Therefore I have time to think.

And that is not always good.

Podcast From Around The Campfire

Firstly join me around the campfire in Sacrifice-And-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1065 to discuss these issues.

Recent Experiences and High Summer

Secondly I’ll tell some stories about recent experiences.

Changes Out On The Road

That is to say things out here seem to have changed a bit due to inflation and other issues.

Desperation In The Air

So I see a little more desperation in the parking lots and truck stops than I remember seeing in 2020.

Sacrifice and Life On The Road

Consequently I end up thinking a little more about sacrifice and life on the road.

Would I Go Back?

For example what would I go back to my own life?

Just Beginning To Learn

But I came to the conclusion that I have only scratched the surface of what one can learn out here.

Auspicious Time

To clarify I think this is an auspicious time to be a nomad.

Back Roads and Highways

In short there’s a lot going on out on the back roads and highways of this country.

Experiences and Lessons

Even more it’s the experiences and the lessons learned that keep me wanting more.

And Friends

Not to mention the friends I’ve made.

Choose Again

In addition I would still choose the timelines and alternative life.

Powerful Inner Voice

For example when I made my decision there was a powerful inner voice which said, just go.

Just Push On

On the other hand now my inner voice seems to be saying, just push on ahead a little further.

To sum up things are a little different out here this year versus last.

But no less interesting.

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.
