Always-Something-Bob Davis Podcast 1057

Always Something

Due to the realities of Nomad Life It’s always something. A phrase we often use but don’t like very much. Learn more in Always-Something-Bob Davis Podcast 1057.

On The Move

Firstly I am on the move again.

Hidden Problems

Secondly being on the move often means problems develop that have hidden themselves when you’re just hanging out.

Control Emotions

Above all I’ve learned to get control of my emotions when I do have a problem.

Opportunity

That is to say stop, look up and ask yourself what the opportunity is rather than give way to your worst fears.

And so it was this week.

Off Course

First of all I was off course.

Use Maps Not Google

To clarify there is no substitute for a good actual map.

Certainly Google or Apple Maps have their uses.

Global View

But having a real map gives you a global view of where you’re headed.

Oops

Therefore that’s how I ended up in near Lake Havasu when I was headed to Scottsdale.

More Fun

However the fun does not stop there.

I Love The Smell of Diesel In The Morning

In short that’s when I noticed the smell of fuel.

Check out Always-Something-Bob Davis Podcast 1057 to find out more.

Experience

Therefore driving down a mountain nearly 25 miles with some kind of fluid pouring out of Mobile Podcast Command was quite an experience.

Pray

After praying to get to Parker Arizona and find a good mechanic I ended up at MNR Racing.

Oddly enough a church was right down the block.

The Saga Is Not Over

Finally the sags is not over at the recording of this podcast.

These guys are closed til the 10th of June.

However they have decided to check out the truck and find out what the problem is.

Remain Calm and Carry On

Finally I remained calm.

Did not allow a relatively minor problem ruin my day, or life.

Where’s That Bowl Of Cherries?

To sum up these days life on the road can be a challenge.

In addition life back in the world isn’t exactly a bowl of cherries either.

Surprises

In short life is full of surprises.

It’s always something!

(I may have referred to MNR Racing as MSM racing in this podcast. I don’t know why I do that! In any case the proper links to MNR’s FB site are linked and I can’t say enough good things about them. Thanks Again!)

#Vanlife-Rest-In-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1042

#Vanlife Rest In Peace?

Firstly could it be true that #Vanlife will rest in peace? Suddenly the negative tea on nomad life is building. Learn more in #Vanlife-Rest-In-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1042.

Beautiful Experience

Secondly I think the negative stories on #Vanlife hide an otherwise beautiful experience.

Nomad Life

Therefore in #Vanlife-Rest-In-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1042 I’ll explain why there is so much interest in the nomad life these days.

Not For Everyone

In addition I’ll explain why it might not be for everyone.

And that’s OK.

Different World

Most importantly our nomad life is not like life back in the world.

That is to say these two worlds are different worlds.

Don’t Bring Your Old Life Along

Even more attempting to be a full time nomad and bring your old life along can make things more difficult.

Media Doesn’t Like #Vanlife Anymore

Finally when social media takes to something like #Vanlife an impression is created.

Social Media Is Fake

Certainly I think anyone who thinks social media is an authentic representation of any experience or person is naive.

What Is Nomad Life Like?

But if you are interested in nomad life full time in a van, converted school bus or even an RV the biggest topic of interest seems to be how it actually is!

Eating Out Of Can?

For example the media seems to be obsessed with eating out of a can and going to the bathroom in a bucket.

Dirty

Writers also are certainly focused on whether or not nomads are dirty.

And further whether their rigs are a jumble of dirty clothes and candy wrappers.

Freedom And Community Is Real

Meanwhile my experience has been one of freedom and community.

Nomad Life Is Pretty Great

Above all I can’t think of too many negatives associated with the nomad life world.

Hit The Road

Seems like everyone these days wants to hit the road.

And I can’t blame them.

Push Back

To sum up we’re all seeing the beginnings of a push back on the nomad trend.

Love It

On the other hand to know it is to love it.

2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032

2022 Predictions

Firstly my 2022 predictions are detailed in Bob Davis Podcast 1032. They come out every year about this time. Do nomads pay attention? Learn more in 2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032.

More To Talk About

Secondly there are more things to talk about than predictions for the new year that seldom come true.

The Way It Is

And that’s the way our media is these days.

What It All Means

That is to say most of the time we’re deluged with reports about what something that has happened ‘means’.

Predictions

Even more almost every news story contains a prediction about what’s going to happen as the result of some event.

The Land Of The Nomad

However most of these predictions and even news reports don’t effect the Land Of The Nomad.

Different Frequency

Maybe it is for the reason that we’re on a different frequency, or rhythm.

Certainly that’s how I experience it.

Sun Moon and Stars

Moreover I tell time by the sun, moon and stars these days.

What Day Is It?

In addition many of us don’t even know what day it is. Or care.

Rooted In The Desert

Likewise I have rooted here in the desert for the short term. More details in 2022-Predictions-Bob Davis Podcast 1032.

Avoiding Higher Fuel Prices

My plan was to avoid the higher price of fuel and free camp.

Rolling and Rolling

During the past year I spent most of my time rolling across the country. I stopped only to visit friends and relatives.

New Experience

Therefore it is a new experience to be stopped.

And I am loving it!

Every Day Is New

In conclusion after one year of nomad travel I have learned it is above all a new experience every day.

Movement?

On the other hand these days the nomad experience is being referred to as a ‘movement’.

Anarchy

As a result the human desire to codify, communicate and organize threatens the beautiful anarchy here.

In the same vein so many people have YouTube channels sometimes I feel like I am at a broadcasting convention.

Not A Joiner

To sum up I’m not a joiner.

Fun

On the other hand I am having a lot of fun meeting and getting to know people.

Stay Wild Moon Child

Most importantly I hope the Nomad Thing stays wild.

Let It Be

Moreover I hope we can just let it be what it is.
