Suggestions and Support For Nomad Life

Certainly I get a lot of suggestions. And I welcome the support and interest in this nomad life effort.

Recent Suggestions

Firstly, one of recent suggestion was, get a camera in the truck. Just turn it on and record. That would be my ‘video’ channel. I appreciate the fact that people want to help and participate.

Secondly it just doesn’t work that way for me.

Nomad Life Is An Internal Process

For instance my experience is this is very much an internal process. I never knew how much noise my brain made until I decided to hit the road. Alone.

True Freedom

Even more once you give away everything you own and release the connection to place the potential to experience true freedom is there.

Your Mind Makes Noise

However the mind resists. Makes noise. Produces various reactions.

New Understanding

But until I hit the road permanently I never really fully understood.

Intensely Personal Experiences

In the same vein these are intensely personal experiences.

Personal Memories Too

As a result the memories are also personal. Although I work in the audio medium it’s very difficult to relate those internal processes, let alone produce videos about it.

A Challenging Time

Finally we’re living through a challenging time. I don’t feel it as much because I am mobile. But it’s there.

Planetary Conjunction

Above all on a date which marks the ending of the darkness and the beginning of the light, and a planetary conjunction to boot, I have some observations about that too!

Sights Smells Feelings

To sum up nomad life for me has been a jumbled collection of visual memories. Sights. Smells. Feelings.

Covering A Lot Of Ground

From Minnesota all the way through the middle of the country and deep south, to the deserts of the American Southwest.

Only Just Started

In short like life itself I’ve covered a lot of ground but it feels like I’ve only just started.

Taking My Time Isn’t Easy

Most importantly if you know me you know taking my time isn’t easy. At all. In addition my subscribers know I am no stranger to travel. However now that I’ve gone full gonzo nomad the idea of taking my time has new significance. Learn more in Taking-My-Time-Isn’t-Easy-Bob Davis Podcast 963.

Heavy Travel For 6 Years

First of all I’ve been traveling a fair part of the year for the past 6 years. So choosing to hit the road permanently seemed to be a natural development if not a bit extreme.

No Plan Is The Plan

Second of all aside from planning the actual highways and back roads to take on travel days, no plan IS the plan.

Pace Of Travel For Type A’s

Therefore sitting in a state park in Indiana recently gave me some time to reflect on how the pace of travel should be different if you live on the road.

Stupid Mistakes

Even more when I am pushing to get from one place to another that is when I make stupid mistakes.

In The Now

Above all it becomes necessary to remind myself it’s all happening in the now.

I mean literally

No Home To Go To

Certainly I don’t have to go ‘back’ home at any time. so I should be able to take my time, right?

Zen Is Easier Said Than Achieved

On the other hand for type A individuals that is easier said than done.

Letting Go A Little

As a result this is something I have to remind myself of almost constantly. I am not giving up. Maybe just letting go a little.

Yes There Is An Overall Plan

To clarify there is a plan. I’ll let you guys in on some of it in this podcast.

But it is a loose plan.

Minute Details

I’ve never been one to plan things down to the minute details. However I can get pretty intense when things don’t work out exactly as I planned.

Finally I am sure more and more ideas like this will become clearer and ‘gel’ as they say, as time goes on.

It’s all very new to me right now.

Coronavirus-Madness-Hack-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 911

Coronavirus Madness Hack With Travel

These days it’s getting to the point where all this talk about Coronavirus is wearing me out. I thought, what’s a hack for all this stress? A podcast about travel. Here it is in Coronavirus-Madness-Hack-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 911.

Too Much Social Media and News

Moreover whether it’s social media or TV News sometimes it can be just a little bit too much.

It’s Madness

Time for a Madness Hack. Talk about back roads travel across the United States. Above all there are some great places to visit and experience in the United States. Since I just got a new road atlas, time to talk.

Back Roads Routes For Bug Out

Since I only travel on back roads these days, some of the discussion of routes and places might come in handy. You never know when you might have to bug out.

Freedom

Especially relevant is the word Freedom. The wide open feeling you get on a back road.

All Fifty States

In Coronavirus-Madness-Hack-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 911 I’ll go through all fifty of the states.

Alaska and New England

I’ve crisscrossed all these states many times. In contrast there are just a few states I’ve never been to. I’ll tell you about my plans for the New England coastal states, and Alaska.

RV Talk

Also we’ll talk a little but about RV’s. In contrast to Van Life people and some RV folks, I tend to cover a lot of ground. My RV needs might be a little more robust than hauling a trailer or driving a behemoth with three bedrooms. Even though are they are super cool.

Always More

Finally the more I talk about hitting the back roads the more places I remember I’ve been. I couldn’t possibly cover them all in one podcast. There’s always more when it comes to travel.

Travel Tips Too

From Alabama to Wyoming I’ve been there. I’ll share routes, locations and places to see. Plus some tips for making travel a little easier.

Take A Break From The Madness

Above all just doing this podcast made me feel a lot better. It’s double length just to make your break from the madness even more enjoyable.

(Editor’s Note: I absolutely forgot Hawaii. Can’t drive there. But, I really want to visit Hawaii too!)
