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.

Summer-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1056

Summer Peace

Firstly Memorial Day signals the start of summer in the US and I think we all need to get some Summer Peace in 2022. We’ll talk about it in Summer-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1056.

I Know The Rules

Due to social media I am well aware of all the rules concerning virtue signalling for holidays like this one.

Up To You

But in this podcast I will leave the protocols of this extended weekend to you.

One Crisis To The Next

Secondly these days life for many Americans is one crisis to the next.

Time For A Break

Therefore it is time for a break.

Peace

That is to say we all need a moment’s peace.

Podcasting For A Long Time

Above all I have been doing podcasts for a long time.

And it is rare for me to be able to do a podcast on any topic as succinctly as this one.

Back In The World

Certainly life ‘back in the world’ is standing in line.

Not So Good

Or waiting for hours to talk to an actual human being.

Even more it’s strapped budgets and time schedules.

In addition work projects that don’t seem to make any sense.

Who’s In Charge?

Finally I get the sense that those in charge have no idea how to even explain ‘the problem’ much less fix it.

Idea Of Peace

As a result I decided to dedicate this first official podcast of summer to the idea of peace.

Summer Peace.

That is to say getting a moment of peace for yourself this summer.

Makes No Sense

In the same vein the world doesn’t make sense to most of us.

Nomad World

On the other hand in the nomad world things are a little different.

For example we spend a lot of time talking about our rigs.

And planning delicious dinners.

Cooperation and Consensus

Moreover while we talk about things back home we seek cooperation and consensus rather than winning an argument.

Gratitude

After that we’re just grateful.

In short I recorded Summer-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1056 on memorial day to share some memories and a genuine wish for some summer peace for you…

And everyone.

Summer Peace.

Get Some.

What-Kind-Of-Nomad-Are-You-Bob Davis Podcast 1036

What Kind Of Nomad Are You?

Firstly too much advice for nomads kills the vibe. Learn more In What-Kind-Of-Nomad-Are-You-Bob Davis Podcast 1036 it’s time to talk about the independent spirit of being a nomad.

Advice Spewing Nomads

Secondly we may as well talk about the sudden proliferation of advice spewing nomad ‘gurus’.

Disclaimer

Most importantly there is a disclaimer.

Above all recently I slowed my travel roll.

Community

And I’ve met many people in the so called nomad community.

So when I point out something I think kills the independent spirit I am not talking about specific people.

Tribal Chiefs

However It’s becoming obvious there are nomad ‘gurus’ out there becoming chiefs of traveling bands of wanderers.

What Kind Of Nomad Am I?

Therefore I ask myself what kind of nomad am I?

Freedom

Certainly I began this mission to get away from people telling me what to do and how to live.

Self Discovery

Even more this is a mission of self discovery.

No Advice Please

For example I am the kind of nomad that doesn’t want advice even if it hurts me!

Learning Through Experience

In the same vein I want to make mistakes because I learn through experience.

Do What We’re Told Now?

Moreover what kind of nomads are we if we buy what we’re told to buy.

Go where we’re told to go.

Live the way someone else tells us to?

Why Did You Hit The Road

To sum up isn’t this the reason many of us hit the road? To be free?

YouTube

Finally I hear so many people talking about what so and so said on YouTube.

Shh. Listen!

I wonder whether we’re still hearing that voice within.

A Long Line Of Explorers

That is to say we join a long line of explorers and travelers who started with nothing and learned everything along the way.

Self Discovery

Including learning to discover themselves.

Mistakes and Learning

To sum up making mistakes is part of learning.

Why Do You Wander?

Moreover most people wander for various heartfelt reasons.

Be Prepared

It might not be all about what kind of batteries you have or whether you use a down blanket or not.

Be prepared.

But be prepared to be wrong, to make mistakes and discover yourself.
