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.

Front-Porch-Summer-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 928

Live from the Front Porch! These days we all need some summer fun. I once lived on the front porch for an entire summer and it was pure bliss. Summer stories in Front-Porch-Summer-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 928.

First of all we honor those who have fallen in battle for our country on Memorial Day.

Second we’re not supposed to say, “Have a happy Memorial Day Weekend”.

Finally I did anyway. I know. Just seems like we all need some good summer vibes.

Consequently I might take some flack for my summer best wishes. However this three day weekend in the US is also our summer kick off.

More importantly this is probably going to be the weirdest Memorial Day weekend in memory.

Therefore as I we kick off the weekend time to share some stories about summer.

For example there was the time I spent an entire summer living on the front porch. My backyard ‘fort’. Running around the neighborhood in the middle of the night. Spending the entire summer at the Lion’s Club Pool.

What about those rainy cold summers? Day after day spent playing cards with all the other kids on the neighbor’s front porch. At the end of the summer someone would announce school was starting soon. What happened to the summer?

Above all summers in the upper Midwest are short. Memorial day weekends are usually rainy and cold. Due to the extreme nature of our seasons up here we approach every moment of any warmth with gusto! We’ll talk about it in Front-Porch-Summer-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 928.

In conclusion, join me on my front porch today as I test out some new podcasting equipment and tell some stories. We all need a break from the insanity.

Authentic Sauna Experience-Bob Davis Podcast 817

Once and awhile you find a gem in the world of podcasting. These days it’s hard to be happy. What if I told you inner peace and happiness is just a sauna away? We’ll do it in Authentic Sauna Experience-Bob Davis Podcast 817.

Leading Sauna Authority

Glenn Auerbach is the leading authority on everything sauna in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, if not Minnesota. Glenn has been building saunas and promoting the sauna experience for years.

Build An Authentic Finnish Sauna

Moreover one thing Glenn is fond of saying is, if you have one hundred square feet in your backyard, you can build an authentic Finnish sauna. In addition Glenn provides research and resources for you at his website and blog here.

If You Want To Be Happy…

Recently the New York Times published a story which ranked individual happiness by country. Finland was number one. The US did not rank very high in this study. The Times’ suggestion? If you want to be happy, move to Finland.

The Secret To Processing Your Life

Auerbach does not agree. He says if Americans would spend time in a sauna the way Finns do, we’d be able to process our lives more efficiently and be happier. The sauna is an excellent tool for processing.

Northern European Immigrants and The Northern US

Finally up here in the far north we love our cold weather climate. With an ethnic history of families who came here from Northern Europe, the similarities between life in the arctic circle and Minnesota can be a little daunting.

Painting A Picture of Pure Natural Beauty

Honestly, Glenn is so good at painting a romantic picture of fjords and islands, and builds a beautiful sauna. But there’s more. In conclusion, Auerbach also knows his stuff.

So we’ll cover the question of whether you should build a sauna, from the authentic experience all the way to the scientifically proven results.

It was a pleasure to have Glenn Auerbach on the podcast. I know I want a sauna for next year’s two months of below zero weather!
