#Nomadlife-#Vanlife-Not-Pretty-Bob Davis Podcast 1051

#Nomadlife and #Vanlife Not Pretty?

Firstly the snobs and scolds have suddenly discovered #Nomadlife and #Vanlife are not pretty. Is this true? Let’s discuss in #Nomadlife-#Vanlife-Not-Pretty-Bob Davis Podcast 1051.

Podcast Series

Secondly this is the second podcast for me on the growing backlash to nomad life. The other podcast is here.

Success Breeds Contempt

Above all this new attitude about hitting the road is the result of the success of that kind of sentiment.

Challenges

Certainly there are challenges.

But Rewarding

However it remains very rewarding for those who have the yen for travel and adventure.

Two Weeks Is Not The Nomad Experience

Moreover renting a van for a couple of weeks and writing about it isn’t what the experience is all about.

All Kinds Of People

For example I’ve met all kinds of people with a variety of reasons for choosing the nomad life.

Slab City

In addition another reporter has now done an ‘expose’ on Slab City. My podcast on the nomad mecca is here

Surface Observations

Most importantly surface observations are deceptive out here in the land of the nomad.

Inaccurate Assumptions

Even more they lead to incorrect assumptions about what’s really going on.

Rejecting American Dream Scares People

In the same vein I think there’s something about rejecting life back in the world that frightens some.

Yes It’s Hard

To clarify life as a nomad can be challenging.

There are setbacks and problems, just like in every walk of life.

Finally as I like to say, nobody said it would be easy.

Instagram

To sum up I would say much of the so called #vanlife and #nomadlife backlash is because of its success.

Social Media

For example Instagram and other social media posts and content.

Distorted Picture

In short the success of this life on social media has presented a distorted picture of how great it is.

There Are Many Moments

But I have certainly had moments which are great.

Something Going On

In conclusion there’s something going on in America.

Search For A New American Dream

Certainly many are rejecting the so called American Dream.

Why is it a problem if they want to hit the road in search of a new dream?

Breaking News-Ask-A-Nomad-Bob Davis Podcast 1019

Breaking News? Ask A Nomad

These days Breaking News is not something you’d ask a nomad about. However I think we might have some insight. Learn more in Breaking News-Ask-A-Nomad-Bob Davis Podcast 1019.

Insights on Breaking News

Firstly I just finished a podcast with my friend Don and we had some insights on a breaking news matter. Listen here.

Podcasting Isn’t Breaking News Thank God

Secondly that experience reminded me Podcasting is not a great breaking news medium.

Certainly there are podcasts that focus on current events but even these efforts focus on analysis.

Travel Isn’t About Breaking News

In addition I came to the conclusion that travel isn’t about breaking news either.

Especially Nomad Travel.

Moment My Moment

In other words Nomad Travel is a moment by moment experience.

Therefore there is a sort of Zen to it.

Life Back In The World

Even more these days I am thinking more and more about life ‘back in the world’.

In the static day to day world.

Life In The Cities

As a result I thought about how I feel when I am in cities, which I usually try to avoid.

Fear Frustration and Anger

To me the sense of fear, frustration and anger are something I can feel in the cities.

Me Too!

On the other hand I would feel those powerful negative emotions had I not decided to chuck everything and hit the road.

Slicing and Dicing

Finally back in the world there’s a sense of slicing and dicing every event that comes down the pike.

Hitting The Road Is A Trend

Because there are so many new people hitting the road I have a feeling ‘Breaking News’ will follow.

Experts Won’t Be Far Behind

That is to say whenever you get big numbers into a trend the so called ‘experts’ can’t be far behind.

Caution Scolds Ahead

Even more given certain breaking news events look for thousand words tomes cautioning people on the dangers of ‘van life’.

Going Where We’re Drawn

Meanwhile we’re out here going where and when the wind blows us.

The Secret Is Freedom

To sum up the big secret and draw of Nomad Life is Freedom.

Freedom.

A feeling many back in the stationary world don’t have right now.

But there’s lots of breaking news.

Finding-Happiness-In-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1003

Finding Happiness In Nomad Life

Firstly can you find happiness in nomad life? Learn more about my experience in Finding-Happiness-In-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1003.

Big Subject

Secondly it’s a big subject for one podcast. Find more podcasts about nomad life here.

However I’ll give it a shot on a barefoot around the woods and lake.

Survival

Life used to be all about survival.

Happiness As A Life Purpose

Certainly happiness as a life purpose is a relatively new thing.

Because these days our basic survival needs are easier to address.

But survival is still the primary purpose of life in some places.

Time To Think

Finally here at the Wisconsin Base Camp there’s time to think about these ideas.

Find out my conclusions by listening to Finding-Happiness-In-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1003.

New Questions About Nomad Life

In addition I still get fun questions about nomad life.

For instance how long am I going to keep doing this.

And what are the negatives of nomad life.

I couldn’t really think of any.

To clarify I would say questions of time and resources play a role.

In addition how fast I need to move around the country to address a business concern.

Opportunities Not Negatives

On the other hand I take “negatives” as opportunities.

Life Lessons

There’s a life lesson there.

How do you measure happiness?

Higher Vibration

In the same vein there’s something about being unbound and unburdened that seems to promote a higher vibration.

In short these days thousands of people are refusing to return to offices.

Hitting The Road

Even more many are hitting the road.

They are chucking their old life for the promise of something new.

And we now have the tools to do it!

To sum up that’s what nomad life is all about.

Something Going On

Likewise there’s something going on with this nomad ‘thing’.

Americans are definitely more motivated to take control of their lives in a way I have not seen before.

Taking Back Our Power

Moreover we don’t have to be a nomad to take back our power.

For many it’s making the decision to continue to work from home.

Or a pretty rad cabin in the woods.

Meaning and Happiness

In short the search for happiness and meaning in life is intensifying.

Back Roads

In conclusion I find meaning on the back roads and it’s pretty great.
