Coping-With-Setbacks-Shortages-Bob Davis Podcast 1020

Coping With Setbacks and Shortages

Above all no one ever said coping with setbacks and shortages is easy. You can let shortages and setbacks ruin the travel vibe or stay in the flow. Learn about my latest exploits on the road in Nevada in Coping-With-Setbacks-Shortages-Bob Davis Podcast 1020.

Trying To Take My Time Traveling

Firstly I’ve been making quite an effort lately to take my time traveling.

The Plan

Secondly the plan was to spend several days in Nevada.

Not To Be

This was not to be.

Losing A Tire In The Vastness of Nevada

To clarify heading into a campground in the middle of nowhere in the Silver State I blew a tire.

Ely Nevada Is All Right

On the other hand the good news is four tires on the back of mobile podcast command so the remaining three tires carried me safely an additional 48 miles to Ely, Nevada.

Four Kick Ass New Tires And A Oil Change

Further I got myself four new all terrain tires and had a great time in a pretty cool small town in the mountains.

Attitude

As a result of all this I was reminded again how important attitude is.

Gratitude

Gratitude and staying in the flow allowed me to get through this mini crisis with ease.

Be Happy When You Have To Deal With Problems

Moreover I had a pretty good time dealing with some difficult issues.

Even more considering stories in the news about shortages getting four new tires and the filter for the oil change in a small town out west was no small feat.

Parallel To Real Life

Certainly there is a parallel to real life here.

Something’s Going To Give

Most importantly sooner or later something’s got to give.

Just Don’t Lose It

After that some people freak out and the experience ruins their day, trip, month or life.

Right?

Facts Of Nomad Life

However one thing about nomad life I have experienced.

Sooner or later you’re going to end up on the side of the road.

Life Too

So it is with normal life.

Shortages

For example you don’t have to go very deep into social media to learn there are earth shattering shortages coming.

Preppers Cleaning Up

Buy dried food and put it in the basement, right?

Media Horror Stories

Even more there are all kinds of potential horror stories about the pandemic, real estate prices and the stock market to boot.

Stay In The Flow

Finally the one thing I have learned is to stay in the attitude of gratitude.

And to stay in the high vibration travel vibe.

To sum up no one wants to spend a ton of money on new tires.

No one wants to deal with national and international economic issues, right?

On the other hand adults know these things happen.

Therefore it’s best to be prepared and roll with it.

I’ll tell you what I did in Coping-With-Setbacks-Shortages-Bob Davis Podcast 1020.

I’ll-Have-A-Casa Grande-Bob Davis Podcast 1018

I’ll Have A Casa Grande With Caramel Please

Above all it’s great to visit friends which is why I say I’ll have a Casa Grande! I’m in Casa Grande Arizona for this podcast with my friend Don Anger. Join us for some freewheeling conversation in I’ll-Have-A-Casa Grande-Bob Davis Podcast 1018.

Don Anger Joins The Bob Davis Podcast

Firstly I met Don in radio years ago. Now I am on the road and he is in the oil industry. We’ve done a few podcasts together.

Oil Patch Meets Nomad

Secondly Don shuttles back and forth between the oil patch in Midland Texas, and his home in Casa Grande Arizona.

Because I always said I’d visit him in Casa Grande, here we are.

We certainly do like doing podcasts together every now and then and as long as Don’s wife Stacy allows the microphones and other equipment on the back porch, we’re good.

Why Is There An Ambulance In My Driveway?

Even more hopefully she won’t ask why there is an ambulance in her driveway, but that’s another story.

Topical and Fun

Meanwhile when we do podcasts we’re often topical.

Current Events

So there’s some discussion of current events in I’ll-Have-A-Casa Grande-Bob Davis Podcast 1018.

Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito

For instance as I post this the whole country is talking about a missing young woman who has unfortunately been found deceased.

Person Of Interest

Even more her fiance is a person of interest in the case of the death of Gabby Petito.

Celebrities From Casa Grande?

Meanwhile we talk about the celebrities from Casa Grande.

Dealey Plaza

In addition Don recently made the pilgrimage to Dallas to tour Dealey Plaza, the site of the JFK assassination in 1963, so we’ll get into that issue as well.

#Vanlife Murders

Finally on a recent podcast I interviewed a young author who’s written #Vanlife Murders.

Current Van Life Story

Most importantly I am sure Taylor Cluster never expected the current Van Life story to be taking the country by storm. Her interview on the Bob Davis Podcasts is here.

Van Life and Williston

Even more Don started in the oil industry in Williston North Dakota. He feels there are some similarities between the current Van Life Nomad craze and the sudden concentration of oil workers in a small town more than ten years ago.

Mix Things Up

Finally listeners and subscribers know I like to mix things up.

Consequently it’s great to have a correspondent like Don Anger.

Pop Culture

To clarify Don is much more into pop culture than I am.

In addition he is very excited to talk about these subjects, so it’s a great mix for a podcast.

Visiting Friends

Most importantly it’s just great to visit friends every now and then.

(Editor’s Note: We talk at length in this podcast about a breaking news story. However Podcasting is not a breaking news medium. Of course it should go without saying, but it is necessary to point out that breaking news stories require constant updates. This can’t happen with this particular podcast. So if you want breaking updates on a breaking news story, this is not the place to get them. Suffice it to say it came up in freewheeling discussion and will be forever memorialized here, without updates.)

Nothing-Like-A-Campfire-Bob Davis Podcast 1017

Nothing Like A Campfire. Nothing!

Firstly one of the gems of wisdom from nomad life is There’s Nothing Like A Campfire. Every night. Join me around the campfire in Utah’s Canyon Lands in Nothing-Like-A-Campfire-Bob Davis Podcast 1017.

Secondly these days we’re all so stressed out it’s hard to find peace.

Two Things Bring Me Peace

Above all two things bring me peace. Driving and sitting in front of a campfire.

In Front Of A Fire

Therefore in this podcast I find myself in front of a fire. Again.

Perfect Time

Consequently it’s a perfect time for another podcast.

Very Important

In fact I can’t tell you how important having a campfire every night is.

While it seems silly to say such a thing in fact if I were a life coach I make that recommendation to all my clients.

I Wish Everyone Could Have Them

In the same vein campfires, travel, vistas and empty highways are so meditative I wish everyone could have them.

Every. Day.

Happiness Is…

Even more a long time ago someone said to me, “Happiness is a clean windshield and a full tank of gas”.

I couldn’t agree more.

Struggling In America

Meanwhile people continue to struggle the changes wrought by the pandemic.

In short I don’t think it is possible to over estimate the damage to the American Psyche in these times.

2020 Sucked and 2021 Might Be Worse

Certainly many of my friends and myself have struggled with grief or illness in 2020.

Life Has Not Been Easy

In short life has not been easy lately, my friends.

Talk It Out

There isn’t a better place to talk it out than a campfire. Especially in this setting. Join me in Nothing-Like-A-Campfire-Bob Davis Podcast 1017.

The West Is The Best

Finally you guys know I have been all over the country this year.

Moreover I’ve loved my trips out east, and across the Midwest.

But I can’t get enough of the West. Colorado. Arizona. Utah.

Navajo Nation

And especially the Navajo Nation with it’s straight highways that stretch on seemingly forever.

Anticline Overlook

In conclusion I found the site of this particular campfire just off Highway 191 by the Anticline Overlook not far from Canyon Lands National Park. The campsite is a BLM site. One six miles in. The other about 25 miles in.

Never Want To Forget It

I am making a note of it here because I never want to forget it!

Sharing Some Peace

To sum up I record these podcasts around the campfire from time to time in the hopes that some of the peace I have been able to gain as the result of this nomad adventure will rub off on the listener.
