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.

Happy-Nomad-New-Year-Bob Davis Podcast 1034

Happy Nomad New Year

Firstly last year’s Happy Nomad New Year was down on the Arizona Mexico Border. I was alone. This year there will be lots of community and friendship. Learn more in Happy-Nomad-New-Year-Bob Davis Podcast 1034.

Long Time Friends

Secondly I am joined in this podcast by long time friend John Holland.

Considering The Nomad Life

These days there’s a lot of people considering the nomad life.

Certainly John is not alone in this interest.

New Year’s

So he rented a van, threw his gear in the back and headed out to the desert to join us for New Year’s.

Above all that’s a great opportunity for a podcast and we didn’t miss it.

Quartzsite Everybody

Therefore in Happy-Nomad-New-Year-Bob Davis Podcast 1034 we talk about John’s tour of Quartzsite Arizona.

2022 Desert Hang Out

During this podcast I realize I’ve been talking a lot recently about where I am hanging out right now.

Appreciate Where I Am

Most importantly as I reevaluate what I am doing and make plans for the second year of the nomad experience I certainly have come to appreciate where I am.

Partial To The Quirky

That is to say I am partial to what some might call quirky and dusty desert towns like this one.

Details

But we also share quite a lot of details about what first timers deal with on the road.

Fun

And have some fun in the process.

Nomad Mecca

Consequently it ended up being a fun audio tour of what has become the nomad mecca.

Serving The Nomads

Further we talk about many of the small businesses here that do such a great job serving nomads of all stripes and walks of life.

For example the Coyote Market and Road Runner markets and my personal favorite the MAGA Campground.

Yes there is a MAGA campground.

Desert Rats

Even more John and I believe we have discovered a tremendous business opportunity in ridding campers of the scourge of desert rats!

But you’ll have to listen to the end for that.

To sum up I probably won’t be in this spot forever but I am having a blast for the time being.

Grateful

And very grateful for the community, friendship and fun.

Coping-With-Setbacks-Shortages-Bob Davis Podcast 1020

Coping With Setbacks and Shortages

Above all no one ever said coping with setbacks and shortages is easy. You can let shortages and setbacks ruin the travel vibe or stay in the flow. Learn about my latest exploits on the road in Nevada in Coping-With-Setbacks-Shortages-Bob Davis Podcast 1020.

Trying To Take My Time Traveling

Firstly I’ve been making quite an effort lately to take my time traveling.

The Plan

Secondly the plan was to spend several days in Nevada.

Not To Be

This was not to be.

Losing A Tire In The Vastness of Nevada

To clarify heading into a campground in the middle of nowhere in the Silver State I blew a tire.

Ely Nevada Is All Right

On the other hand the good news is four tires on the back of mobile podcast command so the remaining three tires carried me safely an additional 48 miles to Ely, Nevada.

Four Kick Ass New Tires And A Oil Change

Further I got myself four new all terrain tires and had a great time in a pretty cool small town in the mountains.

Attitude

As a result of all this I was reminded again how important attitude is.

Gratitude

Gratitude and staying in the flow allowed me to get through this mini crisis with ease.

Be Happy When You Have To Deal With Problems

Moreover I had a pretty good time dealing with some difficult issues.

Even more considering stories in the news about shortages getting four new tires and the filter for the oil change in a small town out west was no small feat.

Parallel To Real Life

Certainly there is a parallel to real life here.

Something’s Going To Give

Most importantly sooner or later something’s got to give.

Just Don’t Lose It

After that some people freak out and the experience ruins their day, trip, month or life.

Right?

Facts Of Nomad Life

However one thing about nomad life I have experienced.

Sooner or later you’re going to end up on the side of the road.

Life Too

So it is with normal life.

Shortages

For example you don’t have to go very deep into social media to learn there are earth shattering shortages coming.

Preppers Cleaning Up

Buy dried food and put it in the basement, right?

Media Horror Stories

Even more there are all kinds of potential horror stories about the pandemic, real estate prices and the stock market to boot.

Stay In The Flow

Finally the one thing I have learned is to stay in the attitude of gratitude.

And to stay in the high vibration travel vibe.

To sum up no one wants to spend a ton of money on new tires.

No one wants to deal with national and international economic issues, right?

On the other hand adults know these things happen.

Therefore it’s best to be prepared and roll with it.

I’ll tell you what I did in Coping-With-Setbacks-Shortages-Bob Davis Podcast 1020.
