Nomad Decisions and Stories

Above all my nomad decisions and stories are my own. They are not meant as judgements. Learn more in Nomad-Decisions-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 1046.

Not Easy

Secondly nobody said it would be easy.

Certainly we nomads love to tell the story of how it all went down.

Review

Lately I have been reviewing my decision to get rid of everything and hit the road.

To clarify I do not regret that decision.

Anatomy Of A Decision

But I think the process of making the decision is interesting.

Even more I don’t think anyone is having an easy time with life these days.

Therefore the idea of discussing life changing decisions helps everyone.

And telling some nomad stories along the way.

Another Great Nomad Story

For example someone I met had rented a car, threw her stuff in it, and within three hours was on the road.

Forever.

She’s still driving the rented SUV.

“I’ll deal with that later”.

Action Is What’s Important

In the same vein Nomad-Decisions-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 1046 is about the process of making a big decision and taking action on it.

Most importantly I don’t regret it.

No Best Practices

However I am not really sure if I used ‘best practices‘ in making that decision.

To sum up here, the main thing is it was a decision that was acted upon.

Pure Bliss

Certainly that led to pure bliss as I drove and drove across the country and back.

High Prices

On the other hand the current high price of fuel as me stopped down in the desert with a bunch of nomads in the same boat.

This too is a learning experience.

Finally where ever listeners and subscribers are..

No matter how hard it gets.

Choices and Decisions

We still have choices and we can still make decisions.

And take action.

In short every now and then I like to review and retell the story of how I got here.

In addition revisit what I consider success to be.

Nomad Definition of Wealth and Success

And what wealth looks like out here.

Sometimes that’s a hot shower and a good Internet connection.

And that’s OK.

Campfire-Is-The-Nomad-Hearth-Bob Davis Podcast 1041

Campfire Is The Nomad Hearth

The Campfire is the Nomad Hearth. Therefore we’ll talk about cooking and contemplating the campfire in Campfire-Is-The-Nomad-Hearth-Bob Davis Podcast 1041.

Free Camping Is Good

Firstly I have been camping around Quartzsite Arizona for several weeks now.

Firewood Source

And I’ve been buying my wood from a place called Woodstock Firewood here in town.

Drum Circle

Secondly every year about this time Woodstock Firewood has a drum circle as a celebration of the season.

This Is The Season

Most importantly this part of Arizona has a season.

Sunshine

Even more a lot of Nomads come down here for free camping and sunshine.

Short Season

But I am sorry to say everyone pretty much starts clearing out around the end of February.

However I will be staying as long as I can.

Summers Are Hot Here

Certainly the one hundred plus temperatures here in the summer aren’t inviting for most snow birds.

On the other hand I have become more and more of a desert dweller every day down here.

I don’t know whether it can get hot enough for me given my years spent in the Northern Tundra!

We’ll see.

Contemplating Nomad Hearth

Meanwhile it’s time to enjoy the drumming of the drum circle and contemplate the nomad hearth.

Something About A Campfire

Above all there’s something about the fire that eases the troubled mind of modern times.

The fire is a nomad kitchen and more.

In addition the nomad hearth is a place for stories, songs and celebrations.

As it has been for tens of thousands of years.

Likewise there’s something special and deep about the campfire.

In short the nomad hearth is just that. The center of nomad life in the campground.

Modern Life Needs A Campfire

Even more I would suggest the craziness of Modern Life could use a campfire every now and then.

Back Drop For This Podcast

As a result I think the drum circle is a perfect back drop for Campfire-Is-The-Nomad-Hearth-Bob Davis Podcast 1041.

Thanks to the Resonance Bus

Moving On

Eventually and finally I’ll move on from this magical place.

But I Don’t Want To

That is to say I’ll be traveling again this spring and summer.

But I am so glad to have been able to share in the community and get to know people here.

Both in town and out in the campgrounds.

In short I wouldn’t trade this experience over the last several weeks for anything.

Just What I Needed

Stopping down and spending time has turned out to be just what I needed.

2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032

2022 Predictions

Firstly my 2022 predictions are detailed in Bob Davis Podcast 1032. They come out every year about this time. Do nomads pay attention? Learn more in 2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032.

More To Talk About

Secondly there are more things to talk about than predictions for the new year that seldom come true.

The Way It Is

And that’s the way our media is these days.

What It All Means

That is to say most of the time we’re deluged with reports about what something that has happened ‘means’.

Predictions

Even more almost every news story contains a prediction about what’s going to happen as the result of some event.

The Land Of The Nomad

However most of these predictions and even news reports don’t effect the Land Of The Nomad.

Different Frequency

Maybe it is for the reason that we’re on a different frequency, or rhythm.

Certainly that’s how I experience it.

Sun Moon and Stars

Moreover I tell time by the sun, moon and stars these days.

What Day Is It?

In addition many of us don’t even know what day it is. Or care.

Rooted In The Desert

Likewise I have rooted here in the desert for the short term. More details in 2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032.

Avoiding Higher Fuel Prices

My plan was to avoid the higher price of fuel and free camp.

Rolling and Rolling

During the past year I spent most of my time rolling across the country. I stopped only to visit friends and relatives.

New Experience

Therefore it is a new experience to be stopped.

And I am loving it!

Every Day Is New

In conclusion after one year of nomad travel I have learned it is above all a new experience every day.

Movement?

On the other hand these days the nomad experience is being referred to as a ‘movement’.

Anarchy

As a result the human desire to codify, communicate and organize threatens the beautiful anarchy here.

In the same vein so many people have YouTube channels sometimes I feel like I am at a broadcasting convention.

Not A Joiner

To sum up I’m not a joiner.

Fun

On the other hand I am having a lot of fun meeting and getting to know people.

Stay Wild Moon Child

Most importantly I hope the Nomad Thing stays wild.

Let It Be

Moreover I hope we can just let it be what it is.
