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.
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!
On the other hand I learned a lot about the nomad community.
Life Long Friends
And made a lot of hopefully life long friends.
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.
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.
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.
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.
