Sacrifice And Nomad Life

Above all after nearly two years on the road it’s a good time to talk about Sacrifice And Nomad life. We’ll do it in Sacrifice-And-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1065.

Not Forced

Firstly this life wasn’t forced on me.

Sacrifice

Secondly I sacrificed a great deal by making the decision to go on the road.

Conversation

Certainly this has been a topic of conversation in these podcasts.

Utah

But these days I am in Utah.

Even more I am in Utah waiting for truck service, among other things.

Time To Think

Therefore I have time to think.

And that is not always good.

Podcast From Around The Campfire

Firstly join me around the campfire in Sacrifice-And-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1065 to discuss these issues.

Recent Experiences and High Summer

Secondly I’ll tell some stories about recent experiences.

Changes Out On The Road

That is to say things out here seem to have changed a bit due to inflation and other issues.

Desperation In The Air

So I see a little more desperation in the parking lots and truck stops than I remember seeing in 2020.

Sacrifice and Life On The Road

Consequently I end up thinking a little more about sacrifice and life on the road.

Would I Go Back?

For example what would I go back to my own life?

Just Beginning To Learn

But I came to the conclusion that I have only scratched the surface of what one can learn out here.

Auspicious Time

To clarify I think this is an auspicious time to be a nomad.

Back Roads and Highways

In short there’s a lot going on out on the back roads and highways of this country.

Experiences and Lessons

Even more it’s the experiences and the lessons learned that keep me wanting more.

And Friends

Not to mention the friends I’ve made.

Choose Again

In addition I would still choose the timelines and alternative life.

Powerful Inner Voice

For example when I made my decision there was a powerful inner voice which said, just go.

Just Push On

On the other hand now my inner voice seems to be saying, just push on ahead a little further.

To sum up things are a little different out here this year versus last.

But no less interesting.

Nomad Setbacks and New Adventures

Firstly every now and then there are setbacks and new adventures for nomads. They’re unavoidable. Not fun when they happen though. Status update from the road in Nomad-Setbacks-New-Adventures-Bob Davis Podcast 1049.

Still On The Road? Everything Is Fine

Secondly as long as your rig isn’t at the bottom of a lake or ravine everything is fine.

Emergency Fund

Certainly you’ll have to pay.

And you know that.

Not The End Of The World

But it’s not the end of the world.

How Could This Have Happened?

Even more you kick yourself wondering how ‘this’ could have happened.

Law Of Fast Forgetting

Therefore it’s normal to get down on yourself when the law of fast forgetting is in effect.

Get Your Road Chops Back

In other words if you stayed in one place all winter and weren’t on the road there are things we all get used to doing on the road.

Easy To Forget

It’s easy to forget these things when you start traveling again.

Grand Entrance

For example making a grand entrance by driving down what looked like a shallow hill.

Turns Into A Sand Dune

However that shallow hill was a sand dune.

Time For A Tow Truck

Meanwhile as I waited for the inevitable two truck to pull me out I got philosophical.

Learn and Relearn

After that it was an evening of talking about how often we learn and relearn life lessons very quickly out here.

Life Lessons Take Time

That is to say sometimes life lessons take years to incorporate.

Learning Faster In Nomadland

In short the same lesson that takes years can take a few minutes out here.

Grateful

Finally I am grateful to be on the road again.

Interrupting My Reverie

Certainly I hate it when my reverie is interrupted by some stupid act.

But all is well.

Not A Bowl Of Cherries

To sum up nomad life isn’t a bowl of cherries.
