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.

2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032

2022 Predictions

Firstly my 2022 predictions are detailed in Bob Davis Podcast 1032. They come out every year about this time. Do nomads pay attention? Learn more in 2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032.

More To Talk About

Secondly there are more things to talk about than predictions for the new year that seldom come true.

The Way It Is

And that’s the way our media is these days.

What It All Means

That is to say most of the time we’re deluged with reports about what something that has happened ‘means’.

Predictions

Even more almost every news story contains a prediction about what’s going to happen as the result of some event.

The Land Of The Nomad

However most of these predictions and even news reports don’t effect the Land Of The Nomad.

Different Frequency

Maybe it is for the reason that we’re on a different frequency, or rhythm.

Certainly that’s how I experience it.

Sun Moon and Stars

Moreover I tell time by the sun, moon and stars these days.

What Day Is It?

In addition many of us don’t even know what day it is. Or care.

Rooted In The Desert

Likewise I have rooted here in the desert for the short term. More details in 2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032.

Avoiding Higher Fuel Prices

My plan was to avoid the higher price of fuel and free camp.

Rolling and Rolling

During the past year I spent most of my time rolling across the country. I stopped only to visit friends and relatives.

New Experience

Therefore it is a new experience to be stopped.

And I am loving it!

Every Day Is New

In conclusion after one year of nomad travel I have learned it is above all a new experience every day.

Movement?

On the other hand these days the nomad experience is being referred to as a ‘movement’.

Anarchy

As a result the human desire to codify, communicate and organize threatens the beautiful anarchy here.

In the same vein so many people have YouTube channels sometimes I feel like I am at a broadcasting convention.

Not A Joiner

To sum up I’m not a joiner.

Fun

On the other hand I am having a lot of fun meeting and getting to know people.

Stay Wild Moon Child

Most importantly I hope the Nomad Thing stays wild.

Let It Be

Moreover I hope we can just let it be what it is.

Lunar-Eclipse-Radio-Bob Davis Podcast 1027

Lunar Eclipse Radio

Firstly some experts say the upcoming Lunar Eclipse might break things. We’ll talk about it in Lunar-Eclipse-Radio-Bob Davis Podcast 1027.

Chaos

Secondly I don’t think anyone can argue things feel chaotic right now.

Making Adjustments

To review I’ve talked about how the current economic reality requires nomads to make adjustments.

However for people living the so called ‘normal’ life in most urban areas the pressure is building.

End Of The World November 19th 2021

Even more aside from the usual talk about how November 19th’s eclipse will be the longest in duration there are those who say it will be the end of the world.

Desert Vibe

On the other hand out here in the desert the vibe is more peaceful.

Rising Prices

Certainly nomads have had to adjust to rising prices.

For example traveling shorter distances, free camping and shopping for cheaper fuel and food.

Nomads Have More Control

Above all we have a little more control over how we expose ourselves to the economic chaos we all feel.

Feelings

But what about feelings and intuition.

Mind In Both Worlds

To clarify I’ve always had my mind in both the real world and the world of feelings.

Metrics

I’m always looking for metrics and ‘proof’.

However I still have the same underlying feelings about the near future I talked about back when I was in Snow Mass in August. Check out that podcast here.

For instance more than one of my friends has recently actually used the word ‘chaos‘ to describe feelings.

Lunar Effect

And the closer we get to the lunar eclipse the stronger that intuition gets for some people.

Therefore in this podcast it’s time to talk about feelings and intuitions.

Hanging Out

Above all I am hanging out in Quartzsite, Arizona.

Quartzsite Is Special

That is to say this is one of those special and weird Arizona towns that I hope never has to endure the development of a Bougie Sedona or worse, Phoenix.

In addition Quartzsite’s sun faded and weather beaten hardscrabble businesses form a perfect backdrop for the town’s odd cast of characters.

In addition we Nomads are a perfect addition to the craziness here.

I love it!

Therefore get ready for the big experience in Lunar-Eclipse-Radio-Bob Davis Podcast 1027.
