Reflections-From-The-Desert-Bob Davis Podcast 1075

Reflections From The Desert

Firstly the desert is a perfect place for reflection. Learn more in Reflections-From-The-Desert-Bob Davis Podcast 1075.

Creative Process

Secondly what’s your creative process?

Certainly there’s a lot to discuss about creative process in this podcast.

Free Wheeling Discussion

And a lonely desert with a campfire is the perfect spot for a free wheeling discussion.

Slow Is Fast

Above all I have learned working slowly is actually working fast.

And thorough.

Hyper Person

Of course people have thought of me as a hyper person.

One Thing At A Time

But in fact I like to work on one thing at a time and follow it through.

Stacking Creative Projects

Therefore stopped down in the desert means working on a writing project I’ve given myself.

As well as these podcasts.

Podcast Ideas

In fact developing unique ideas for the podcasts can be difficult these days.

Social Scrim

That is to say my listeners and subscribers know I refuse to get in the political social scrim.

Deeper Issues

However I do feel that advancing the story means talking about deeper issues.

Recent Podcasts Have Been Heavy

As a result some of the podcasts recently have been pretty heavy.

Time for an easy talker.

Campfire

So a campfire is just the ticket.

Structure

I also sum up the structure of my days out here.

Fuel Prices

Due to high fuel prices most nomads I know are hunkered down for the winter.

Southwestern Arizona

In fact Southwestern Arizona is perfect.

Perfect Fall Day

For example now that the monsoon is over everyday out here is like a perfect fall day in the Upper Midwest.

For the rest of the winter.

Channels Of Thought

Most importantly writing in addition to podcasting changes the channels of thought in a good way.

And I think will result in a sense of accomplishment after the winter months pass.

Second Year Anniversary

In short as I come up on the anniversary of a second year of nomad travel there’s a lot to talk about.

First Year

Finally the first year seemed to be in almost constant movement.

Second Year

On the other hand the second year has been a completely different vibe.

Experiences

In conclusion the great thing about nomad life is the experiences the nomad gives himself.

Sick-Of-Myself-Bob Davis Podcast 1030

Sick Of Myself

Firstly how do you journal? I record voice notes. Then months later I transcribe them. You know where this is going right? After 6 weeks of transcribing I am pretty sick of myself. Learn more in Sick-Of-Myself-Bob Davis Podcast 1030.

Inventory and Review

Secondly there is no better way to inventory and review what’s going on in your life.

Kept Journals

Most importantly I have kept journals off and on since I was a kid.

Notebooks Give Way To Voice Notes

However recently with travel I’ve found the simplest way to express inner feelings is to record voice notes on my phone.

Transcribing

In the same vein the idea of transcribing those voice notes allows me to gain some perspective on what’s really been happening in the past year or so.

Tedious Work

But spending hours transcribing my voice gets a little tedious.

Now I am Sick Of Myself

Even more I am left with the being sick of myself.

Got It Done

But I got it done!

Of course I say this somewhat in jest.

Creative Projects

On the other hand transcribing voice journals provides me with a lot of basic material for future creative projects.

Stopped Down In The Desert

In addition I have had the time because I am stopped down in the desert.

Change From The Usual

To clarify usually I am barnstorming around the country.

Stay Put

But this winter I have decided to stay put

High Price Of Fuel

Firstly there’s the high price of fuel right now.

Having Fun Boon Docking

And secondly I’ve really enjoyed boon docking in the desert.

Hanging Out

Therefore I’m hanging out in this little South Western corner of Arizona for the time being.

Creative

Above all I’m rededicating myself to the creative side of my business.

Fun Experience

To sum up it’s quite a fun experience to get to know yourself a little more intimately.

Ups and Downs

Certainly the past year has had it’s ups and downs.

Story Arc

But there’s a real story arc there and I am pretty excited about some of the things I didn’t include in the podcasts during 2020 and 2021.

Scratched The Surface

Finally I feel like I have only scratched the surface on this nomad thing.

Prepare

Consequently it has been good to stop down, review, take stock and prepare for the future.

Quartzsite-Arizona-Live-Bob Davis Podcast 976

Quartzsite Live!

Most importantly I am in Quartzsite Arizona Live for the biggest RV show of the year. But I arrived here a week early! Join me for a Quartzsite primer in Quartzsite-Arizona-Live-Bob Davis Podcast 976.

Crazy Stories

Firstly I have heard this story differently before.

Secondly the truth is even more bizarre.

Camels and Quartzsite

To clarify Camels and Quartzsite go back to 1850 and then Secretary of War Jefferson Davis.

Desert Terrain

Above all Davis had the bright idea of using camels to transport people across the rocky desert terrain out here. Click here for at least some the details.

Modern Day Outlaws Too

Even more Quartzsite figures into the story of violent outlaw Gary Tisen. Here’s a link to the 2017 movie.

Meanwhile as I sit here in the desert in front of a fire every night I am reminded that every place seems to have its own history.

What Makes Travel Great

Certainly discovering unique stories of the past and regional differences are what make travel so great.

RV Culture

Further I can’t wait to get into the RV culture and look for some Mobile Podcast Command creature comforts.

Nomad Travel Vehicles Too

In the same vein there are many different people and unique types of nomad travel vehicles here.

Staying In The Desert

Finally thanks to my friend Neil Seven I’ll be headed west to the California desert for the most bizarre and intense off road race in the country. Lots of other RV people and nomads headed that way as well.

Road School Is Damn Good Therapy

In conclusion call it wandering, being a nomad or just road school. Hanging with Mobile Podcast Command and going where I want is pretty damn good therapy for whatever ails you.
