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.

Civil-War-Echoes-Bob Davis Podcast 968

Civil War Echoes In North Carolina

First of all we don’t notice the echoes of the US Civil War most of the time. But they’re there. Especially in the American South. Hear those echoes in Civil-War-Echoes-Bob Davis Podcast 968.

Civil War

Secondly I’ve studied the Civil War and lived in the South.

Life Long Learner

Of course that doesn’t make me an authority on so called Southern Culture.

Many Reminders Of The War In The South

But if you are a thinking person and you travel through the south, you can’t help but notice many reminders of that war.

Mute Reminders of Struggle

Even more plaques by the side of the road serve as mute reminders of desperate struggle, death and loss.

Monuments To The Confederacy

Above all my own thoughts about why there are any monuments to the Confederacy manifested in real time.

Black Lives Matter Protest

I drove right into a Black Lives Matter protest in the nice little town of Graham, North Carolina.

Time To Stop!

Consequently I had to stop and record.

160 Years Later It Is Still Real

Civil-War-Echoes-Bob Davis Podcast 968 is a slice of the emotions that still smoulder in this country and especially in the South, one hundred sixty years later.

Peaceful Protest

Most importantly this was a peaceful protest on both sides. BLM, and the locals.

Monument To Common Confederate Soldier In Graham North Carolina

At issue is one of many monuments to the common confederate soldiers who perished in the war.

Glorifying Slavery or Celebrating Culture and Heritage

In short protesters say these kinds of monuments glorify a system based on slavery. Locals say it is their heritage and culture.

Thoughts Manifest In Real Time

Most importantly I did this podcast because I was struck at the resonance of a sudden real event and my thoughts.

Southern Culture Isn’t Just Pecan Pie and Cotton

In addition it is also a good time to say some things about what Southern Culture might actually be about.

The Civil War Still Hurts Us All

In short to wonder why a war that hurts us still, had to ever happen to begin with.

Offgrid In Trump Country

Firstly wouldn’t it be cool to live offgrid in a home that actually pays you? I am in Kentucky and my guest in Offgrid-In-Trump-Country-Bob-Davis-Podcast-964 builds these homes.

Rural Kentucky

Secondly rural Kentucky like most of rural America, is Trump country.

Stolen Election

Out here they think the democrats stole the election from President Trump.

Lots of Stories

Most importantly there are a lot of stories about ballots all over the country.

Jay Hamilton

But Jay Hamilton is unique.

Curious and Active Mine

Certainly Jay’s uniqueness is driven by his curious and active mind.

Lots of Fun

This is what makes spending time with him so much damn fun!

Benford’s Law

However when he applies his intellect to Benford’s Law and precinct level election data, sparks fly.

Election Fraud?

Above all many wonder about election fraud.

Nomad Adventures

The great thing about being a nomad is the opportunity to meet and talk with people like Jay Hamilton. You get to join me in this effort in Offgrid-In-Trump-Country-Bob-Davis-Podcast-964.

Big City Friends Wonder

Moreover my big city friends keep asking me what Trump supporters think.

Meet Jay

Therefore I give you Jay. I do not pass judgement on his theories. I’ll leave that to you.

We’re All Human Beings

In the same vein I have learned we are all human beings.

Some Very Nice People

When I was covering the democrat caucuses in Iowa, my Trump friends wanted to know was up with “those people”.

I noted the fact that many of the democrats I’d met were very nice people.

Check This Analysis

Finally I think everyone should check out Jay’s analysis of what could have happened in the 2020 election.

Getting Offgrid?

And if you are looking to get off grid Jay is your guy.
