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.

2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032

2022 Predictions

Firstly my 2022 predictions are detailed in Bob Davis Podcast 1032. They come out every year about this time. Do nomads pay attention? Learn more in 2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032.

More To Talk About

Secondly there are more things to talk about than predictions for the new year that seldom come true.

The Way It Is

And that’s the way our media is these days.

What It All Means

That is to say most of the time we’re deluged with reports about what something that has happened ‘means’.

Predictions

Even more almost every news story contains a prediction about what’s going to happen as the result of some event.

The Land Of The Nomad

However most of these predictions and even news reports don’t effect the Land Of The Nomad.

Different Frequency

Maybe it is for the reason that we’re on a different frequency, or rhythm.

Certainly that’s how I experience it.

Sun Moon and Stars

Moreover I tell time by the sun, moon and stars these days.

What Day Is It?

In addition many of us don’t even know what day it is. Or care.

Rooted In The Desert

Likewise I have rooted here in the desert for the short term. More details in 2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032.

Avoiding Higher Fuel Prices

My plan was to avoid the higher price of fuel and free camp.

Rolling and Rolling

During the past year I spent most of my time rolling across the country. I stopped only to visit friends and relatives.

New Experience

Therefore it is a new experience to be stopped.

And I am loving it!

Every Day Is New

In conclusion after one year of nomad travel I have learned it is above all a new experience every day.

Movement?

On the other hand these days the nomad experience is being referred to as a ‘movement’.

Anarchy

As a result the human desire to codify, communicate and organize threatens the beautiful anarchy here.

In the same vein so many people have YouTube channels sometimes I feel like I am at a broadcasting convention.

Not A Joiner

To sum up I’m not a joiner.

Fun

On the other hand I am having a lot of fun meeting and getting to know people.

Stay Wild Moon Child

Most importantly I hope the Nomad Thing stays wild.

Let It Be

Moreover I hope we can just let it be what it is.

Wearing-Arizona-Out-Bob Davis Podcast 1026

Wearing Out Arizona

Firstly I am wearing Arizona out right now. High fuel prices means spending more time in individual states. Learn more in Wearing-Arizona-Out-Bob Davis Podcast 1026.

Got A Thing

Secondly I have had a thing for Arizona for a long time.

Search For The Old West

Above all I continue the search for the Old West.

All Desert

Even more now that the colder weather is filtering down from the Canyon to the Mountains it’s all desert for me.

Love It!

And I couldn’t be happier.

More Time In Arizona

As the result of higher fuel prices I am adjusting my travel plans so that I can spend more time in certain places.

Nomads In A Good Position

Certainly I’ve made the case that nomads are better positioned to reduce their exposure to inflation. Click here for that podcast.

Free Camping

Even more since orienting to this new plan I have become very focused on dispersed camping, free camping and even hanging out at Truck Stops when I am in transit. I share some of those tips in Wearing-Arizona-Out-Bob Davis Podcast 1026.

Something About Arizona

But overall there is something about Arizona.

Maybe it’s the sunsets.

Juniper

In addition I can never get enough of the scent of juniper on the fire.

Pines And Mountains

Or the pines and the mountain woods.

Highways

Finally we have all seen the Arizona Highways pictures.

On the other hand there are some amazing highways and views in this state. In the past few weeks I’ve had the pleasure to experience many of them.

Plan

To sum up we nomads are lucky. If we plan it right we can avoid spending too much money.

Low Profile

And I am still learning how to achieve as low a profile as possible so I am not exposed to the higher and higher prices.

As a result I get to see some really cool places that most wouldn’t bother.

Whether it’s Gila Bend in the south or the Navajo Nation to the north.

Off The Beaten Path

In the same vein if you can get off the beaten paths anywhere you get to see different parts of the US and these are some of the best places, in my opinion.
