Celebrating Two Years A Nomad

Firstly very happy to be celebrating two years of nomad travel. Of course year two is very different from year one. Learn more in Celebrating-Two-Years-Nomad-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 1077.

Review and Travelogue

Secondly reviewing the year takes the form of a travelogue.

Thanks and Appreciation

And there are many people to thank along the way.

Fuel Prices

Certainly fuel prices dictated a change in how this nomad travels.

Most importantly I like to drive.

That is to say I am one of these people who can cover a lot of ground.

Quartzsite

But at the beginning of this second year of nomad travel those fuel prices grounded me in Quartzsite, Arizona.

More To Nomad Life Than Driving

As a result I realized this is life is like peeling an onion.

New Layers

Therefore getting down to the new layers this year meant friendships and more.

Remembering Details

In addition I had to review images and podcasts from the year to remember details!

Like A Dream

In other words much of this life is so much like a dream sometimes that’s how you remember it.

Utah and Colorado

For example reviewing images on my phone made me realize I did do some travel this summer.

And got to know Utah and Colorado pretty well.

Friendships

Above all this has been a year of developing friendships and realizing the benefits of the nomad community.

Adventure

As well as quite a few adventures.

Stories In This Podcast

Certainly I’ll tell a few stories from the experience in this podcast.

A Nomad’s Childhood Roots

However I go back to my childhood for some snapshots that explain the drive to hit the road later in life.

Healthier Life

More importantly I have outlined the reasons I think this lifestyle is actually healthier than life back in the world in previous podcasts.

Community and Bonds

Even more it’s the community and bonds with people I have met that made the most of the year.

Nature Of Our Time

Finally I don’t think any of us know where we’ll be in a year.

Indeed that seems to be the nature of the time we’re living through.

Choices

On the other hand we do have choices.

The Road Is The Prescription

Hitting the highway for adventure and growth certainly was the prescription for me.

Post-Eclipse-Take-A-Breath-Bob Davis Podcast 1055

Post Eclipse Take  A Breath Bob Davis

Firstly eclipses put out a lot of energy so post eclipse it’s good to take a breath. We’ll do that in Post-Eclipse-Take-A-Breath-Bob Davis Podcast 1055.

Front And Center Witness

Secondly as a nomad I have been front and center to witness three big eclipses.

Scope And Power Of An Eclipse

Above all very few natural events compare in their scope and power with a eclipse.

Tex-Mex!

For example as for this eclipse we had a big Tex-Mex Nomad dinner.

Coffee and Conversation

We drank gallons of coffee and talked for four hours.

Energy Dropped After

Finally after it was all over all of us dropped.

More Sleep Please

Even more two or three days later we’re still grabbing more sleep.

That’s how it is.

New Friends

Most importantly I am again reminded about getting to know new friends.

Community

Certainly the community aspect of slower travel is one of its major benefits.

Barnstormer…But

That is to say I am a barnstormer.

I think nothing of travel from west coast to east.

High Price Of Fuel

However the high price of fuel currently has us all stopped down in the desert.

Million Dollar View

Meanwhile I have a million dollar view here at the Imperial Dam Long Term Visitor Area. Right on the border of California and Arizona.

Learning

Therefore I am learning more about other nomads and campgrounds.

Planning

In the same vein this was part of my plan anyway.

In short when I blaze trails without stopping I don’t get the feel of an area or its people.

Yuma And Other Towns

When I stop after that I learn about Yuma, Arizona. Or some other southwestern towns.

And I love it.

Total Lunar Eclipse

To sum up all of this was accentuated by a beautiful total lunar eclipse on the evening of May15th 2022.

Count My Blessings

In addition it is an opportunity to count my blessings at this location.

Future Plans

And look ahead to plans for the rest of the summer.

In conclusion will I continue my nomad journey?

Above all I am watching economic developments like a hawk. For a synopsis podcast click here.

But I don’t think I’ve even started on my nomad journey!
