Trials Tribulations and Victory

Firstly if you’ve ever been stuck in the sand you know the meaning of Trials Tribulations and if you’re lucky Victory. Learn more in Trials-Tribulations-Victory-Bob Davis Podcast 1053.

Trials

Secondly it happened to me just a few weeks ago. Now it was someone else’s turn.

Tribulations

And it was my turn to help.

No Guarantee

Certainly there are no guarantees in this story.

Solving Problems

But sometimes three people have all they need to solve a problem.

Extra Help

With a little extra help.

Amazed At The Bonds Of Nomads

Above all I am amazed at the bond nomads have.

And Veterans

Even more the bond I witnessed that our armed services veterans have.

It’s All Here

Most importantly it’s all here in Trials-Tribulations-Victory-Bob Davis Podcast 1053.

Forgotten How To Work Together

I think one our biggest problems these says has to do with the fact that we all seemed to have forgotten how to work together and stay with a problem long enough to see some kind of progress.

Help From Above Too

In addition when you put in the effort sometimes you get a little unexpected help from above.

Step Up

I was willing to step up. As a result I learned something.

Takes A Team

On the other hand I certainly wasn’t the one who wouldn’t quit. I got help in that regard from my friends.

Skoolie

And another nomad camper with a Skoolie.

Reinforcement

However the idea of refusing to quit and being willing with stay with it was reinforced due to this experience.

Land Of The Nomad

Subsequently there was a lot of talk among us about how these experiences are much more the norm out in the land of the nomad than back home.

Nomad Life

In the same vein it’s one of the great things about nomad life.

Step Up And Share

In short we’re always ready to step up to help and share if we can.

Lessons To Be Applied Elsewhere

Finally I think those same lessons can be applies to the greater question of our national future.

Working Together

That is to say working together.

#Vanlife-Rest-In-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1042

#Vanlife Rest In Peace?

Firstly could it be true that #Vanlife will rest in peace? Suddenly the negative tea on nomad life is building. Learn more in #Vanlife-Rest-In-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1042.

Beautiful Experience

Secondly I think the negative stories on #Vanlife hide an otherwise beautiful experience.

Nomad Life

Therefore in #Vanlife-Rest-In-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1042 I’ll explain why there is so much interest in the nomad life these days.

Not For Everyone

In addition I’ll explain why it might not be for everyone.

And that’s OK.

Different World

Most importantly our nomad life is not like life back in the world.

That is to say these two worlds are different worlds.

Don’t Bring Your Old Life Along

Even more attempting to be a full time nomad and bring your old life along can make things more difficult.

Media Doesn’t Like #Vanlife Anymore

Finally when social media takes to something like #Vanlife an impression is created.

Social Media Is Fake

Certainly I think anyone who thinks social media is an authentic representation of any experience or person is naive.

What Is Nomad Life Like?

But if you are interested in nomad life full time in a van, converted school bus or even an RV the biggest topic of interest seems to be how it actually is!

Eating Out Of Can?

For example the media seems to be obsessed with eating out of a can and going to the bathroom in a bucket.

Dirty

Writers also are certainly focused on whether or not nomads are dirty.

And further whether their rigs are a jumble of dirty clothes and candy wrappers.

Freedom And Community Is Real

Meanwhile my experience has been one of freedom and community.

Nomad Life Is Pretty Great

Above all I can’t think of too many negatives associated with the nomad life world.

Hit The Road

Seems like everyone these days wants to hit the road.

And I can’t blame them.

Push Back

To sum up we’re all seeing the beginnings of a push back on the nomad trend.

Love It

On the other hand to know it is to love it.

Uncertainty-Principle-Bob Davis Podcast 1039

The Uncertainty Principle

Firstly the uncertainty principle is about uncertainty in our world these days. Nomads deal with uncertainty every day. For more information check out Uncertainty-Principle-Bob Davis Podcast 1039.

New Campsite

Secondly as if to pay off on the Uncertainty Principle I had to move to a new campsite this week.

Bureau Of Land Management Rule

Certainly the rule on Bureau of Land Management free campgrounds is 14 days and you move on.

Pushing The Rules

I pushed the rule a little spending nearly three months in one location. The good news? I can come back in two weeks!

Community

On the other hand I learned a lot about the nomad community.

Life Long Friends

And made a lot of hopefully life long friends.

True Grit

Even more I personally witnessed resourcefulness and true grit among my full time nomad friends.

Happy To Move

Therefore I am not in the least upset that I had to move.

Passes Rule

Most importantly the ranger was great. We had a nice conversation about all the many sites one can access with a Long Term Visitor pass, which I possess.

Uncertainty

Above all it made me think about the uncertainty we all feel about how things are going.

Bricks And Sticks

Most importantly back in the so called bricks and sticks world.

Back In The World

Or ‘back in the world’ as I like to say.

Caution No Certainty Ahead

Moreover I do not think any of us are going to wake up some sunny morning in the near future feeling certainty.

In fact I don’t think that’s going to happen for at least one generation.

Stable and Certain World Closed For One Generation

So if you’re an adult now perhaps you’ll be able to contribute to a more stable and certain world.

Living With Uncertainty

However for the time being we’re going to have to live with uncertainty. Learn more in Uncertainty-Principle-Bob Davis Podcast 1039.

Unpacking At The New Campsite

Finally join me in this podcast as I unpack and all the mats and boxes of firewood. The groceries. Chair. You know.

Don’t Be Fooled By Cheerful Nomads

And we’ll talk about how nomads deal with uncertainty in an almost cheerful manner.

We Attack Change

In the same vein I revisit the idea that to attack change we have to observe and orient ourselves to a new situation more often than back in the world.

Make Quick Decisions

In addition we then have to make quick decisions and act on them.

Have A Lot Of Grit

Aside from the fires and pot lucks there’s a lot of grit out here in the land of the nomad.

And Surprising Flexibility

In the same vein the flexibility and willingness to embrace change is often visible among people out here you’d never expect.

Life Turning Points

In short there are three turning points in everyone’s life that can lay us out.

Death, Divorce and losing a job.

Easier On The Road

To sum up I have to feel like it is easier out here to deal with that kind of trauma and learn to embrace the future as a result.

More Fun

In conclusion I certainly can’t predict the future. But for me living out here on the road is actually easier and more fun than back in the world.
