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.

Gratitude-Attitude-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1035

Gratitude Attitude 2022

Above all we’re living through confusing times so having the Gratitude Attitude in 2022 is the right approach. I’ll tell you all about it in Gratitude-Attitude-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1035.

Thanking Those Who Have Helped In 2021

Firstly I have a lot of people to thank for getting me and the podcast through a difficult year.

First Year As Nomad

Secondly if you want to hear more about my first year on the road permanently click here.

Second Year Of Nomad Experience Already Underway

But we’re now well into the second year of the nomad experience.

New Vibe

Already it’s a completely different vibe.

Constantly Moving In 2021

For example in my first year I traveled almost the entire year, stopping down only to deal with my mother’s death.

Slow Down

On the other hand I decided recently to slow down and get to know the places I’m interested in a little.

Discover Community

Consequently I have discovered the nomad community.

Quirky Quartzsite

In addition I’ve come to love the quirky place I have called home the last few weeks, Quartzsite Arizona.

And The People

Therefore as I look back over 2021 I see there are many people as well to be grateful for.

Clients and Contributors

Certainly clients and contributors to the podcasts.

Friends and Family

Likewise friends and family who have been very supportive throughout this process.

Some of 2021 Is A Blur

But some of 2021’s events are a blur to me.

Dreamy

To clarify there’s something dreamy about the nomad experience to begin with.

Process

Even more things like a death in the family take a little longer than a few days to process. Shockingly I don’t remember most of last winter due to dealing with my mom’s death.

Incredible Moments and Dreams

And yet there have been some incredible moments which also surprisingly feel like a dream.

Time Is Different For The Nomad

Finally my analysis is that the nomad does not experience time the same way as those back in the world.

Rome Bob, Rome

Certainly our concept of the New Year’s on January 1st goes back to Roman Times.

Lunar Calendars

Before that people operated on lunar calendars and told time with the stars.

Chinese New Year

As a result the so called Chinese New Year usually happens around February.

Farmers No More

Back in the day most of us were farmers.

Beginning Of Spring

Therefore the powers that be decided the New Year should also herald the beginning of the planting season.

Milestones

To sum up I am not one for marking these milestones.

Grateful

But I think it is good to recognize and be grateful for the good in life.

I am lucky to have so much of it mostly due to the people in my life.

Answering-Questions-Doing-Laundry-Bob Davis Podcast 1033

Answering Questions While Doing Laundry

Firstly have not answered questions from listeners so it’s time to answer questions while doing laundry. Join me in Quartzsite Arizona’s premier laundry for Answering-Questions-Doing-Laundry-Bob Davis Podcast 1033.

Listener Questions

Secondly Don Anger and his oil field co workers over in Texas contributed many of these questions.

Some Answers In Previous Podcasts

Most importantly I’ve answered many of these questions about my nomad life in various podcasts.

Now All On One Podcast

But getting most of them on one podcast is a good idea.

Nomad Life

Certainly there’s a lot of interest in the nomad life lately.

Back In The World

For example I hear many of us talk about becoming weary of the every day life back in the world.

And rules.

Or the pressure.

No Real Single Answer

On the other hand there’s no uniform answer to why someone wants to be out traveling full time.

How It Feels

Likewise you’ve heard me talking about how it feels.

Nomad Life

However most people have questions about how every day life is as a nomad.

Do I smell like smoke.

In addition, what do I eat?

Even more what about all the other nomads?

Rigs, Retirement or Making Money On The Road

In the same vein I get a lot of questions about whether most of my fellow nomads are retired military and what rigs they’re all driving.

Nomad Movement?

Meanwhile you’ve heard my comments about the trend toward organizing and nomad ‘movement’.

Social Structure

Finally there are many questions about what the so called social structure is out here.

In short we try not to have one.

Simple And Great Questions

To sum up I do get a lot of simple questions about nomad life.

After that I usually forget the simple questions and concentrate on complicating it as much as possible!

Winter In The Desert

In conclusion every now and then we get a cloudy or cold day during the winter out here in the desert.

Days For Simple Tasks

Consequently those are the best days for simple tasks like laundry, filling propane, getting more wood and groceries.

Then it’s time to head back to the campsite. Details in Answering-Questions-Doing-Laundry-Bob Davis Podcast 1033.
