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.

Nomad-Setbacks-New-Adventures-Bob Davis Podcast 1049

Nomad Setbacks and New Adventures

Firstly every now and then there are setbacks and new adventures for nomads. They’re unavoidable. Not fun when they happen though. Status update from the road in Nomad-Setbacks-New-Adventures-Bob Davis Podcast 1049.

Still On The Road? Everything Is Fine

Secondly as long as your rig isn’t at the bottom of a lake or ravine everything is fine.

Emergency Fund

Certainly you’ll have to pay.

And you know that.

Not The End Of The World

But it’s not the end of the world.

How Could This Have Happened?

Even more you kick yourself wondering how ‘this’ could have happened.

Law Of Fast Forgetting

Therefore it’s normal to get down on yourself when the law of fast forgetting is in effect.

Get Your Road Chops Back

In other words if you stayed in one place all winter and weren’t on the road there are things we all get used to doing on the road.

Easy To Forget

It’s easy to forget these things when you start traveling again.

Grand Entrance

For example making a grand entrance by driving down what looked like a shallow hill.

Turns Into A Sand Dune

However that shallow hill was a sand dune.

Time For A Tow Truck

Meanwhile as I waited for the inevitable two truck to pull me out I got philosophical.

Learn and Relearn

After that it was an evening of talking about how often we learn and relearn life lessons very quickly out here.

Life Lessons Take Time

That is to say sometimes life lessons take years to incorporate.

Learning Faster In Nomadland

In short the same lesson that takes years can take a few minutes out here.

Grateful

Finally I am grateful to be on the road again.

Interrupting My Reverie

Certainly I hate it when my reverie is interrupted by some stupid act.

But all is well.

Not A Bowl Of Cherries

To sum up nomad life isn’t a bowl of cherries.

World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044

A World Gone Crazy

Firstly extraordinary circumstances cause me to break down key issues in a World Gone Crazy. Find out what’s up with me out here in the desert in World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044.

Financial Strain

Secondly someone needs to explain some facts as our financial system faces significant financial strain.

Most importantly this is as close as I’ll ever be to discussing politics.

Causes

However I am limiting myself to talking about what’s causing this financial strain.

No Picnic

Certainly what Americans are experiencing right now is no picnic.

Nomads are no exception.

Options

But we do have some options folks back home may not have.

Mobile

Importantly we’re mobile.

Free Camping

Even more we camp for free.

Fuel Prices Slowing My Roll

On the other hand the high cost of fuel has certainly slowed my roll.

And everyone else out here in the land of the nomad.

Stress Anyone?

Meanwhile a majority of Americans say they are under a great deal of stress right now.

A Mix Of Bad News

To clarify we’ve had a pandemic. Inflation has already made food, fuel and rent more expensive. And throw the Ukraine situation into the mix.

That’s a lot of stress.

But as a the result of hitting the road stress is a little easier for me to manage right now.

What’s Next?

Most importantly what happens next?

Financial Stress

Firstly our financial system is under a lot of stress

Stagflation

Stagflation is a concern.

Inflation

Inflation is ravaging all of us.

Deflation

On the other hand the cure for high prices may eventually be high prices.

No To Higher Prices

Even more I don’t think we can accept prices this high and eventually we will reject them.

Recession Ahead

That is to say eventually high prices effect demand to the point where an economic recession develops.

Certainly some economists think we’re nearing that point.

Weird Tension In The World

Above all with the situation in the Ukraine and Eastern Europe getting more tense by the day I feel like we have to take certain steps to protect ourselves. Details in World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044.

Not Easy

Finally these aren’t easy times.

Take A Break

So give yourself a break every now and then.

To sum up I don’t like talking about these things.

Living Life Through My Podcasts

But I live as much as my life as possible through these podcasts.

And this is what I am living through right now.
