VanLife Nomad Backlash

Suddenly there’s a Vanlife Nomad Backlash. Certainly it’s fun to be free and living out on the road. What’s the problem? My reaction in Vanlife-Nomad-Backlash-Bob Davis Podcast 980.

Full Commitment

Firstly I’ve just recently made a full commitment to living on the road. Learn more about that here.

Extended Travel

Secondly extended travel has been a part of these podcasts since the beginning.

Social Media…Again

However recently some have taken issue with some over the top social media accounts.

Hollywood Has Discovered The Modern Nomad

To clarify reporters and Hollywood have suddenly discovered the nomad trend.

Blame It On Instagram

As a result it seems like detractors want to attack the whole lifestyle as ‘fake’ because of a few over the top Instagram accounts.

Not For Everyone

Meanwhile my experience has been it’s not a lifestyle for everyone.

Demanding And Tough

In fact the nomad lifestyle can be demanding and tough but be very rewarding at the same time.

Nomad Life Is Hardscrabble

In the same vein I haven’t met too many nomads driving around in vehicles costing at least six figures.

The Majesty Of A Walmart Parking Lot

For example a nomad might experience the majesty of a campground in a national forest one week. And the majesty of a Walmart or Truck Stop lot the next.

Adventure and Fun

To sum up it’s not always glamorous. But it’s always an adventure.

Back Out On The Back Road

Most importantly while I am stuck in a driveway in Virginia as we deal with a death in the family I can’t wait to get back on the back road.

Real Experience

In Vanlife-Nomad-Backlash-Bob Davis Podcast 980 it’s time to talk about the real experiences I have had as a newly minted ‘nomad’. And most importantly the depth of those experiences.

Family and Friends

Even more I realize many nomads are interrupting trips with long stays with family and friends. Why? Because we can.

So What?

On the other hand. Who can blame us?

Shore Power and A Hot Shower

After months of taking showers in truck stops and cooking over campfires, shore power and a hot shower at ‘home’ are pure luxury.

All About The Vibe

Most importantly is the reality of a true positive vibe that comes from travel in any form.

Doesn’t Matter What Rig You Have

Whether you’re rig is a broken down conversion or a Prevost, you’ve experienced that vibe.

No Commitments

Finally, think about travel without commitments. And going where you want. Just plain fun.

Many People Hitting The Road

In conclusion it’s true there are many people hitting the road for various reasons. As a result the nomad lifestyle and Vanlife have become a trend.

Tear Down Something Just Because Lots Of People Are Doing It

Why is it necessary to attack and tear something down just because a lot of people are doing it?

Summer in November

Second we’re live in Virginia on a perfect summer like morning.

Living Life On The Road

So it’s time for an easy talker in a continuing report on living life on the road.

Best. Idea. Ever.

Certainly I am still sure getting rid of everything I owned and hitting the road is still the best idea I’ve ever had. For me!

Pure Bliss

Above all those moments considering my new found freedom are pure bliss.

And Some Pain

On the other hand making silly mistakes can end in a lot of pain.

What’s The Mission On The Road

These days I find myself thinking more deeply about the actual reason for my decision to hit the road.

Experienced Traveler

Most importantly I felt called in some way to do this. Certainly I’ve traveled a lot in the last few years. Sometimes for months at a time.

Life On The Road

So I am no stranger to life on the road.

Home?

On the other hand I always ‘had’ to come ‘home’.

Home Is Here. Now.

Now home is where I happen to be on any given day.

Freedom?

Many people i talk to yearn for that kind of freedom.

Reason For the Adventure

However for me, there has to be a reason for this adventure. Find out why I say this in Nomad-Life-Pleasure-Pain-Bob Davis Podcast 966.

What’s The Mission?

To sum up, this is an adventure. This is a mission. I’m just not quite sure what it is right now.

Finding It Together

In conclusion I guess I’d say we’ll find it together. In a sense that’s what these podcasts are all about…and that’s my pleasure!

Not to mention enjoying an endless summer this winter.

First of all there’s Full Gonzo Nomad and then there’s touring the freeways in a six figure RV. Learn more in Full-Gonzo-Nomad-Bob Davis Podcast 959.

Back Roads Forever

Second of all there’s travel always on the back roads. I’ve certainly done my fair share of it. Even more travel in a Twenty year old ambulance with very few comforts of home.

Hit The Road

That is to say I decided to get rid of everything I own and hit the road. Forever.

Few Comforts

Above all that means hitting the road with a camp stove, hammock and a few other ‘comforts’.

Crazy? I’ve Been Tested!

Certainly people think I am crazy. Where do you get your mail? What do you do when you want to sleep in a bed? How can you function without a toilet and a shower?

New Comforts

Well. I have a toilet. I have a Jet Boil. A camp stove. An awesome new sleeping bag from REI. Stuff like that.

First Podcast Of The Rest of The Podcasts

Because this is the first podcast of the rest of the podcasts, the rest of your questions will be answered going forward.

Time To Take Action

Most importantly I made this decision because it is time to take action. Learn why I am doing this in Full-Gonzo-Nomad-Bob Davis Podcast 959.

Meeting The Future Together

Finally I plan to maintain my business networking contacts in Minneapolis and Saint Paul and the Upper Midwest. On the other hand there is so much more on the back roads. We’ll meet the future together.

Leap Into The Unknown

In conclusion this is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. A huge leap into the unknown.

Feels Wonderful

In the same vein getting rid of everything but essentials and driving away from an empty house feels wonderful.

Might try it sometime!
