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.

Travel-With-Higher-Prices-Bob Davis Podcast 1048

Travel With Higher Prices

Back on the road for travel with higher prices. Time to talk about the basic causes of high inflation and what’s ahead for nomads. Revisiting some topics from earlier podcasts. Listen to Travel-With-Higher-Prices-Bob Davis Podcast 1048.

Euphoria Back On The Road

Firstly even a short trip back on the road delivers the same euphoria and excitement longer trips delivered last year.

Things Have Changed

Second things have definitely changed.

People Don’t Understand What’s Happening

Even more after many discussions with people I’ve met recently there is clearly a lack of understanding what’s going on and what’s caused these prices.

All The Key Information Assembled Here

In addition I have not been able to find all the key information assembled in one place.

Therefore that is the plan for Travel-With-Higher-Prices-Bob Davis Podcast 1048.

The Cure For High Prices

Above all most of the time high prices lead to a recession.

Learn The Word Monetary

Certainly as Milton Friedman said Inflation is Always and Everywhere A Monetary Phenomenon.

Too Many Dollars

That is to say too many dollars chasing too few goods.

Recession Ahead

And inflation often leads to recession.

Good News For Nomads

Due to the fact that recessions often lead to lower prices things might be looking up for us nomads.

California Gas Gouger

Meanwhile the media and politicians don’t talk about high fuel taxes irrationally gouge working Americans.

For example California’s tax on diesel is 68 cents. On gas it’s nearly 52 cents.

Exxon Should Take A Lesson From California

Even the oil companies could take a lesson on gouging from the State Of California.

Short Trips

In short I took a short trip into the so called Golden State intending to head to Los Angeles.

Cash Leaking Out Of My Wallet

However I turned right around and came back to Arizona due to the amount of cash leaking out of my wallet.

Longer Stays and Free Camping Please

Most importantly it’s short trips, longer stays and free camping for this nomad.

There Goes The Punch Bowl

In addition as the Federal Reserve takes away the punch bowl and pulls the slats out from under the economy I’m cheering.

Stock and Real Estate Market Shocks

Finally what’s ahead for the world back home might be stock and real estate market crashes and inevitable job losses we nomads have our fingers crossed for lower prices.

No House To Lose Here

In short if you’re on the road full time you probably don’t have a house to lose or high rent to pay.

Why We Hit The Road

Moreover this was the reason many of us decided to hit the road.

Nomad Story

It’s an important park of the nomad story.

Falling Off A Cliff

To sum up big market moves usually don’t happen fast.

But it’s kind of like falling over a cliff and grabbing branches on the way down.

As you fall you’re up and down but the general direction is down.

Good News The Media Won’t Tell You About

In conclusion that’s good news for nomads.

Maybe not so much for everyone else back in the world.

Lunar-Eclipse-Radio-Bob Davis Podcast 1027

Lunar Eclipse Radio

Firstly some experts say the upcoming Lunar Eclipse might break things. We’ll talk about it in Lunar-Eclipse-Radio-Bob Davis Podcast 1027.

Chaos

Secondly I don’t think anyone can argue things feel chaotic right now.

Making Adjustments

To review I’ve talked about how the current economic reality requires nomads to make adjustments.

However for people living the so called ‘normal’ life in most urban areas the pressure is building.

End Of The World November 19th 2021

Even more aside from the usual talk about how November 19th’s eclipse will be the longest in duration there are those who say it will be the end of the world.

Desert Vibe

On the other hand out here in the desert the vibe is more peaceful.

Rising Prices

Certainly nomads have had to adjust to rising prices.

For example traveling shorter distances, free camping and shopping for cheaper fuel and food.

Nomads Have More Control

Above all we have a little more control over how we expose ourselves to the economic chaos we all feel.

Feelings

But what about feelings and intuition.

Mind In Both Worlds

To clarify I’ve always had my mind in both the real world and the world of feelings.

Metrics

I’m always looking for metrics and ‘proof’.

However I still have the same underlying feelings about the near future I talked about back when I was in Snow Mass in August. Check out that podcast here.

For instance more than one of my friends has recently actually used the word ‘chaos‘ to describe feelings.

Lunar Effect

And the closer we get to the lunar eclipse the stronger that intuition gets for some people.

Therefore in this podcast it’s time to talk about feelings and intuitions.

Hanging Out

Above all I am hanging out in Quartzsite, Arizona.

Quartzsite Is Special

That is to say this is one of those special and weird Arizona towns that I hope never has to endure the development of a Bougie Sedona or worse, Phoenix.

In addition Quartzsite’s sun faded and weather beaten hardscrabble businesses form a perfect backdrop for the town’s odd cast of characters.

In addition we Nomads are a perfect addition to the craziness here.

I love it!

Therefore get ready for the big experience in Lunar-Eclipse-Radio-Bob Davis Podcast 1027.
