OffGrid-Freedom-Utah-Bob Davis Podcast-1067

OffGrid Freedom Utah

Firstly OffGrid Freedom Utah isn’t about solar powered homes. OffGrid-Freedom-Utah-Bob Davis Podcast-1067 is about having no cell coverage and the actual freedom that results from being ‘OffGrid’.

Garbage Minds

Secondly the amount of garbage that our minds are filled with from these phones is epic.

Heavy Users

Above all I know because I am a heavy user of my device.

Thinking

And due to the fact that when I experience outages I’ve noticed I can think!

Listening

Even more I can actually hear myself think!

Revelations

So look for some internal revelations as the result of spending a lot of time with a boat anchor known as the iphone.

At least when you’re OffGrid in Utah.

Review

Consequently I took the opportunity to review the last year or so of travel.

Life Decisions

In addition I was able to review some life decisions.

Mega Trips A Thing Of The Past?

For example last year at this time I was in the middle of a mega trip.

To clarify up the west coast. Out through the upper mountain west. Down through the Midwest. Across the Great Lakes to New England. Back through Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and so on.

Granular Travel

On the other hand this summer’s travel has focused on Northern Arizona, Colorado and Utah.

OffGrid

That is to say I am way out in the deserts and mountains.

Even more down dirt roads and in primitive campgrounds or no campground!

Out Of Area

No cell service.

Freedom!

Subsequently no distractions!

Stories and Realizations

In short it’s great to think again!

And I have some stories and realizations to share in OffGrid-Freedom-Utah-Bob Davis Podcast-1067.

Modern Communications

Firstly I don’t think anyone really thinks about how influential modern communications can be.

The Wanting

Secondly as a result it’s the wanting that makes us all feel like we have and are less.

Certainly we don’t call it ‘the wanting’.

Manifesting

These days it goes by the name ‘Manifesting’.

Goals

Most importantly what happens when you ‘manifest’ right past your original goal?

What Do You Need?

Finally sometimes what you have is enough to do what you need.

Trials-Tribulations-Victory-Bob Davis Podcast 1053

Trials Tribulations and Victory

Firstly if you’ve ever been stuck in the sand you know the meaning of Trials Tribulations and if you’re lucky Victory. Learn more in Trials-Tribulations-Victory-Bob Davis Podcast 1053.

Trials

Secondly it happened to me just a few weeks ago. Now it was someone else’s turn.

Tribulations

And it was my turn to help.

No Guarantee

Certainly there are no guarantees in this story.

Solving Problems

But sometimes three people have all they need to solve a problem.

Extra Help

With a little extra help.

Amazed At The Bonds Of Nomads

Above all I am amazed at the bond nomads have.

And Veterans

Even more the bond I witnessed that our armed services veterans have.

It’s All Here

Most importantly it’s all here in Trials-Tribulations-Victory-Bob Davis Podcast 1053.

Forgotten How To Work Together

I think one our biggest problems these says has to do with the fact that we all seemed to have forgotten how to work together and stay with a problem long enough to see some kind of progress.

Help From Above Too

In addition when you put in the effort sometimes you get a little unexpected help from above.

Step Up

I was willing to step up. As a result I learned something.

Takes A Team

On the other hand I certainly wasn’t the one who wouldn’t quit. I got help in that regard from my friends.

Skoolie

And another nomad camper with a Skoolie.

Reinforcement

However the idea of refusing to quit and being willing with stay with it was reinforced due to this experience.

Land Of The Nomad

Subsequently there was a lot of talk among us about how these experiences are much more the norm out in the land of the nomad than back home.

Nomad Life

In the same vein it’s one of the great things about nomad life.

Step Up And Share

In short we’re always ready to step up to help and share if we can.

Lessons To Be Applied Elsewhere

Finally I think those same lessons can be applies to the greater question of our national future.

Working Together

That is to say working together.

Kofa-Kush-Love-Bob Davis Podcast 1050

Kofa Kush Love

Most importantly I am all alone in a big wildlife preserve and that’s the essence of Kofa Kush Love. Find out why in Kofa-Kush-Love-Bob Davis Podcast 1050.

Shorter Trips Longer Stays Free Camping

And of course I am getting used to short trips and longer stays.

Certainly free camping is also the order of the day.

No One Else Around

But it isn’t very often you get to have a place like this pretty much to yourself.

Doing Nothing

Therefore I’ll use this opportunity to talk about taking the time to do nothing.

Back Home In Pressure City

Firstly back in the world many people are feeling the pressure of day to day life.

Secondly the stress of the world seems to be getting more and more intense lately.

Yes It Is A Plan

In addition doing nothing doesn’t seem like a plan.

But it is.

Desert’s Weird Hum

Above all I am giving myself the time to listen to the silence of the desert.

While spending quiet time with myself meanwhile.

On the other hand back in the so called world things aren’t so calm.

Could I go Back?

In fact I am not sure I could go back to the day to day.

That is to say there is something about the opportunity to be silent by yourself.

And these days we don’t often get that opportunity.

In short this is a story I hear over and over again from nomads.

In the same vein the solitude and peace is one of the main reasons many have chosen this life.

Weird Stuff Going On

To sum up I don’t think it’s wrong to say there’s a lot of negative pressure back in the so called world.

People screaming from sky scrapers, all kinds of bad behavior and just generally being over stressed.

Certainly I hope it will change someday soon.

However I am not holding my breath on that one.

Finally join me for Kofa-Kush-Love-Bob Davis Podcast 1050.

Listen to the desert wind.

And remember…Bali Hai is waiting.
