OffGrid-Freedom-Utah-Bob Davis Podcast-1067

OffGrid Freedom Utah

Firstly OffGrid Freedom Utah isn’t about solar powered homes. OffGrid-Freedom-Utah-Bob Davis Podcast-1067 is about having no cell coverage and the actual freedom that results from being ‘OffGrid’.

Garbage Minds

Secondly the amount of garbage that our minds are filled with from these phones is epic.

Heavy Users

Above all I know because I am a heavy user of my device.

Thinking

And due to the fact that when I experience outages I’ve noticed I can think!

Listening

Even more I can actually hear myself think!

Revelations

So look for some internal revelations as the result of spending a lot of time with a boat anchor known as the iphone.

At least when you’re OffGrid in Utah.

Review

Consequently I took the opportunity to review the last year or so of travel.

Life Decisions

In addition I was able to review some life decisions.

Mega Trips A Thing Of The Past?

For example last year at this time I was in the middle of a mega trip.

To clarify up the west coast. Out through the upper mountain west. Down through the Midwest. Across the Great Lakes to New England. Back through Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and so on.

Granular Travel

On the other hand this summer’s travel has focused on Northern Arizona, Colorado and Utah.

OffGrid

That is to say I am way out in the deserts and mountains.

Even more down dirt roads and in primitive campgrounds or no campground!

Out Of Area

No cell service.

Freedom!

Subsequently no distractions!

Stories and Realizations

In short it’s great to think again!

And I have some stories and realizations to share in OffGrid-Freedom-Utah-Bob Davis Podcast-1067.

Modern Communications

Firstly I don’t think anyone really thinks about how influential modern communications can be.

The Wanting

Secondly as a result it’s the wanting that makes us all feel like we have and are less.

Certainly we don’t call it ‘the wanting’.

Manifesting

These days it goes by the name ‘Manifesting’.

Goals

Most importantly what happens when you ‘manifest’ right past your original goal?

What Do You Need?

Finally sometimes what you have is enough to do what you need.

The Fort. Boys need independence and Freedom. This is the story of my quest for independence and freedom in the form of my own ‘fort’. The Fort. A place where I could go with my friends. To dream. To Talk. To Plan. You know, boy stuff. As adults we spend a lot of time thinking about what we want, or need, or those moments in life when we could have been better, the mistakes we’ve made as well as the hard won victories. Sometimes, though, it doesn’t take much to experience true bliss. It’s also a story of manifesting the things we desire most in our lives. The story of an stubbornly independent boy, with this idea of a ‘fort’, who spent months scavenging lumber from all over town, and started building without any idea of where he was going or how to get there. And, a story about a father who did not share the same temperament as his son. A father who’s personality was┬áintroverted, a man who valued action over words. A story of a father and son who didn’t have very much in common but came together one summer to build something great; The coolest fort in town, by far. Dreams and acting individually can get you pretty far down the road, but that summer my father taught me how to accept help, how to work together, to create something far more than I could have by myself. It’s also the story of how that perfect moment fades as we┬áreach adolescence. Sometimes when we look back, we realize that there was a perfect moment back there when we had much more than we realized at the time. Then again, maybe I did realize it.
