Nothing-Is-Written-Bob Davis Podcast 1054

Nothing Is Written

Firstly it’s time to talk about hard times and to remember Nothing Is Written. Lear more in Nothing-Is-Written-Bob Davis Podcast 1054.

Travel Opens Your Mind

Secondly I’ve been traveling now for about a year and a half full time.

Experience

Above all I have experienced a great deal as a nomad.

Saving Fuel

Even more these days with high fuel prices putting a damper on travel I have been watching the markets like a hawk.

Fatalistic Talk

Finally I have to say I am seeing and hearing a lot of fatalistic talk these days.

We Interrupt This Travel Vibe For A Special Report

Above all I don’t do very many podcasts now about topics beyond the nomad travel vibe.

But I am called to do this one.

Resignation and Negativity

Specifically and to clarify there seems to be a resignation to negative outcomes when it comes to the future and the world.

Past Is Present and Future

In addition financial prognosticators seem to have a penchant for saying past is present and future.

Or Is It?

Therefore I feel compelled to say I reject these notions.

Nomads Have Much To Teach The Rest Of The World

My experience has been, for example, that the nomad community has a lot to teach the rest of the country, whether they want to or not.

Work Together

That is to say I have seen people put aside differences and backgrounds to work together to solve problems.

Refuse To Quit

And refusing to quit until an issue is resolved.

The Future Is Dark

On the other hand I often hear people speak of our future as inevitably dark.

History Repeating Itself

Even more many of these advisors see the future as a consequence of ‘history repeating itself’…determined by fate.

Determinist

Moreover these determinist theories are spread by the very financial prognosticators people look to for information and direction when it comes to the future.

This Is How We Solve Problems Now?

In short we will never solve problems with this kind of negative and fatalistic approach.

People Power

However individuals and people have enormous power and the agency to solve problems if they can work together.

We’re Writing It

To sum up nothing is written. We’re writing it.

World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044

A World Gone Crazy

Firstly extraordinary circumstances cause me to break down key issues in a World Gone Crazy. Find out what’s up with me out here in the desert in World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044.

Financial Strain

Secondly someone needs to explain some facts as our financial system faces significant financial strain.

Most importantly this is as close as I’ll ever be to discussing politics.

Causes

However I am limiting myself to talking about what’s causing this financial strain.

No Picnic

Certainly what Americans are experiencing right now is no picnic.

Nomads are no exception.

Options

But we do have some options folks back home may not have.

Mobile

Importantly we’re mobile.

Free Camping

Even more we camp for free.

Fuel Prices Slowing My Roll

On the other hand the high cost of fuel has certainly slowed my roll.

And everyone else out here in the land of the nomad.

Stress Anyone?

Meanwhile a majority of Americans say they are under a great deal of stress right now.

A Mix Of Bad News

To clarify we’ve had a pandemic. Inflation has already made food, fuel and rent more expensive. And throw the Ukraine situation into the mix.

That’s a lot of stress.

But as a the result of hitting the road stress is a little easier for me to manage right now.

What’s Next?

Most importantly what happens next?

Financial Stress

Firstly our financial system is under a lot of stress

Stagflation

Stagflation is a concern.

Inflation

Inflation is ravaging all of us.

Deflation

On the other hand the cure for high prices may eventually be high prices.

No To Higher Prices

Even more I don’t think we can accept prices this high and eventually we will reject them.

Recession Ahead

That is to say eventually high prices effect demand to the point where an economic recession develops.

Certainly some economists think we’re nearing that point.

Weird Tension In The World

Above all with the situation in the Ukraine and Eastern Europe getting more tense by the day I feel like we have to take certain steps to protect ourselves. Details in World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044.

Not Easy

Finally these aren’t easy times.

Take A Break

So give yourself a break every now and then.

To sum up I don’t like talking about these things.

Living Life Through My Podcasts

But I live as much as my life as possible through these podcasts.

And this is what I am living through right now.

Inflation-For-Nomads-Bob Davis Podcast 1024

Inflation For Nomads

You might think inflation for nomads is something we don’t think about. However we nomads might be in the best position to deal with inflation. Learn more in Inflation-For-Nomads-Bob Davis Podcast 1024.

Hitting The Road

Firstly I have been hitting the road for extended periods of time since 2014.

Life On That Road Forever

Secondly about a year ago I decided to chuck it all and hit the road permanently.

Will Higher Prices Kill The Vibe?

However as oil and food prices rise some people wonder how long any of us nomads will be able to continue.

Surprise

But it might be surprising to learn I think nomads are in the best position to deal with rising prices.

Disclaimers

Certainly I have some disclaimers in this podcast.

No Politics

That is to say this podcast isn’t about politics.

For example I am not going to tell everyone what ‘the government’ should do to deal with this problem.

System Of Thinking

On the other hand I have been employing a system of thinking about these things that has yielded some observations that can help anyone concerned about rising prices.

What Might Be Going On

Even more I conducted an organized observation of grocery stores and truck stops from coast to coast in the last few months and I learned a few things about what’s going on with consumers.

For Nomads

Finally for nomads the real question is where the most significant price increases are coming from and how long they can last.

Changing Up The Vibe

In short the ‘go where my intuition sends me’ vibe is the first casualty.

What’s The Mission

Moving further along that line of reasoning the only task left for me is the mission for the second full year of nomad life.

Slowing Down

And slowing down the velocity of travel.

Careful Planning

Above all careful planning and controlling expenses suggests nomads can get through this insanity and prevail.

Pollyanna

In conclusion there’s something about then nomad experience that allows us to forget the rest of the world.

For a time.

Reality Breaks In

Every now and then reality breaks through the bliss.

Most importantly this doesn’t have to be a death sentence for the mission or the experience.

Only The Disciplined Can Be Truly Free

In short what is required is a disciplined way of thinking and operating to stay on the road and in the flow.
