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.

Bonneville-Salt-Flats-Bob Davis Podcast 1064

Bonneville Salt Flats

Firstly the Bonneville Salt Flats has a long history. I can only scratch the surface of all that salt in Bonneville-Salt-Flats-Bob Davis Podcast 1064.

Kid’s Dream

Secondly I have wanted to come to Bonneville since I was a kid.

Car Magazines

Above all in those days my favorite car magazines almost always featured something happening at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Muscle Cars

For me there was certainly an attraction to the famous muscle cars of the 60’s and 70’s.

Kodachrome

But I loved those Kodachrome photos from back in the day.

Not A Car Guy

Most importantly I am not a car guy.

Still Appreciate

However I still appreciate this automotive history of the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Special History

Be that as it may history here dates back to the 1820’s.

Captain LE Bonneville

Indeed the person the Salt Flats are named after never saw them.

Details in Bonneville-Salt-Flats-Bob Davis Podcast 1064.

Donner Reed Too

In addition even the famous Donner-Reed party’s ill fated travels to California included an episode with the Salt Flats.

Hearst Newspapers

Later William Randolph Hearst got the publicity ball rolling back around 1910.

Racing Days

Subsequently racing didn’t take on the flat until the early 1930’s.

Glory Days

In the long run The Bonneville Salt Flats glory was the early 1960’s through the early 1970’s.

Setting Records

When all those iconic records were set.

Huge Attraction

Unquestionably the Salt Flats are still a huge attraction.

Families

In fact families still love the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Speed Runs

In due time they all take their pick up trucks and sedans for a speed run.

Selfies

Even more the obligatory selfie and then it’s time to go.

Hot Rods?

Presently though you don’t see too many hot rods.

The-Real-Matrix-Bob Davis Podcast 1063

The Real Matrix

Firstly The Real Matrix exceeds the wildest dreams of movie makers. Details in The-Real-Matrix-Bob Davis Podcast 1063.

Provo

Secondly what better place to talk about The Real Matrix than a Walmart Super Center in Provo Utah?

Walmart As A Reference Point

Above all this kind of place is kind of a reference point for me.

Certainly there are Walmart’s all over the United States.

I’ve been to a lot of them.

Walmart All Night

In addition you can still hang out in some Walmart parking lots all night.

Convenience For Nomads

And Nomads love the convenience in transit.

Maintenance

Most importantly I am in Utah to get some maintenance for Mobile Podcast Command.

All Terrain Tires

That is to say if you listened to my adventure in Dinosaur National Monument you know I need All Terrain Tires and maintenance.

Fragile Economic System

But as I walk through the Walmart here in Provo to do this podcast I am reminded how fragile our economic system is right now.

Enormous Influence

As a result I think it’s time to reinforce the fact that The US Federal Reserve Bank has enormous influence in our society.

The Real Matrix

Enough influence to function as The Real Matrix.

Inflation

Moreover as our central bank struggles to control inflation the result may be a recession.

Deflation

Even more a much bigger and more dangerous recession may be in the making.

Meanwhile every nomad I know is rooting for a deflationary recession.

Food and Fuel

That is to say much lower prices for fuel and the things we nomads need.

Back In The World

On the other hand this kind of situation might not be good for people back in the world.

Pressures Of Life

Finally I have often talked about the pressure of life back in the land of bricks and sticks.

No Judgements

Certainly this is not offered as a judgement.

Observation

But only an observation.

Gratitude

And it makes me glad to be a nomad.

Income Not Keeping Pace With Inflation

For example recent data shows incomes are not keeping pace with inflation.

Adds To The Pressure

And that adds a lot of pressure to life.

Provo Itself

To sum up Provo itself is a much younger community.

Therefore I talk about Provo’s demographics and history a little bit.

And of course, there’s nothing like a walk through a Walmart!
