Happy-Nomad-New-Year-Bob Davis Podcast 1034

Happy Nomad New Year

Firstly last year’s Happy Nomad New Year was down on the Arizona Mexico Border. I was alone. This year there will be lots of community and friendship. Learn more in Happy-Nomad-New-Year-Bob Davis Podcast 1034.

Long Time Friends

Secondly I am joined in this podcast by long time friend John Holland.

Considering The Nomad Life

These days there’s a lot of people considering the nomad life.

Certainly John is not alone in this interest.

New Year’s

So he rented a van, threw his gear in the back and headed out to the desert to join us for New Year’s.

Above all that’s a great opportunity for a podcast and we didn’t miss it.

Quartzsite Everybody

Therefore in Happy-Nomad-New-Year-Bob Davis Podcast 1034 we talk about John’s tour of Quartzsite Arizona.

2022 Desert Hang Out

During this podcast I realize I’ve been talking a lot recently about where I am hanging out right now.

Appreciate Where I Am

Most importantly as I reevaluate what I am doing and make plans for the second year of the nomad experience I certainly have come to appreciate where I am.

Partial To The Quirky

That is to say I am partial to what some might call quirky and dusty desert towns like this one.

Details

But we also share quite a lot of details about what first timers deal with on the road.

Fun

And have some fun in the process.

Nomad Mecca

Consequently it ended up being a fun audio tour of what has become the nomad mecca.

Serving The Nomads

Further we talk about many of the small businesses here that do such a great job serving nomads of all stripes and walks of life.

For example the Coyote Market and Road Runner markets and my personal favorite the MAGA Campground.

Yes there is a MAGA campground.

Desert Rats

Even more John and I believe we have discovered a tremendous business opportunity in ridding campers of the scourge of desert rats!

But you’ll have to listen to the end for that.

To sum up I probably won’t be in this spot forever but I am having a blast for the time being.

Grateful

And very grateful for the community, friendship and fun.

Happy Nomad New Year

Two-Worlds-In-Snowmass-Bob Davis Podcast 1015

Two Worlds In Snowmass

Above all in Two Worlds In Snowmass you’ll get to spend some time with me in my weekend of solitude. Even more we’ll get to talk about the fear and uncertainty gripping American right now in Two-Worlds-In-Snowmass-Bob Davis Podcast 1015.

Contemplating a Tale Of Two Cities

Most importantly when I am on the road I do not feel the anxiety.

Feeling The Vibe

But when I stop to visit stationary friends I feel it.

Sharing Feelings Again

Even more I wouldn’t be worth my salt if I did not share how I feel in these podcasts.

Hanging Out By Myself

Consequently on a night we were supposed to spend hanging out and talking I am sitting on a ridge listening to the Coyotes talk.

Grateful

Firstly I am grateful for the opportunity to experience a truly beautiful place and a beautiful setting.

Wondering Why

Secondly when an opportunity like this drops in your lap you find yourself wondering why.

Because Why

And maybe it’s just because, right?

Perfect Time Alone

On the other and I can’t help but feel the powers that be decided it was time for me to have some perfect time alone.

No distractions.

Now What?

Meanwhile what to talk about?

Certainly I could do a travelogue podcast.

How I got here.

Where I’m going next.

Locked In Fear And Uncertainty, and Me

However there’s something about being forced to sequester because an entire village is locked in fear and uncertainty.

Moreover once I got in touch with my feelings there was concern for my friends.

Some Kind Of Climax Is Coming

And a nagging feeling we’ve all started up the hill toward some kind of climax, with all this crazy stuff going on in the world.

No Politics or Judgements

Finally my listeners and subscribers know I don’t bother with politics anymore.

Too triggering and divisive.

Pie Charts and Preferences Be Damned

In addition I don’t understand why we have to be a nation of pie charts with forty percent thinking one thing and forty some percent thinking something else.

Back Roads Mean Peace and Solitude

In short, on the back roads there isn’t any of that. Just peace. And solitude.

Rural America I see You

Likewise I travel through communities and places no one ever sees, reports on or cares about.

Those places don’t feel like Snowmass right now.

Up Here With Coyotes and A Fire

And as a result I am up here with the coyotes howling and my thoughts.

Perfect time for a podcast.

Colorado-Campsite-Ghosts-Bob Davis Podcast 1014

Live From A Colorado Campsite To Talk About Ghosts

Firstly this podcast is live from a Colorado Campsite and we’re gonna talk about ghosts. Learn more in Colorado-Campsite-Ghosts-Bob Davis Podcast 1014.

Squeamish?

Secondly the only disclaimer I would offer is that some people are squeamish about these things.

And others don’t like the whole of idea of spirits in another realm able to show themselves to us, talk to us or even touch us.

Ghosts Of The American West

But if you can get past all that the fact is the American West is full of ghosts.

Strong Opinions

Most importantly because of the strong opinions surrounding this kind of thing I am not identifying the campsite we’re in, and I’ll call my interview subject ‘Bonnie’.

Colorado Is Haunted

Finally Colorado itself has many a haunted place.

‘Bonnie’ has been to most of those places and documented the existence of these entities over the years.

Know The Feeling

More importantly those of us who’ve spent any time camping out here know the feeling.

For example, you’ve gotten into an isolated campsite. Set your camp up. Got the fire going.

Something Doesn’t Feel Right

However something doesn’t feel right.

Spirits In The Natural World

Are there spirits in the national parks and forests?

‘Bonnie’ says yes.

How To Handle It

Even more she’ll tell us how to handle the feeling and what to do if you have an encounter.

They Can Touch Us?

Certainly the idea that a ghost can touch us threw me for a loop.

Visited By Loved Ones

Similarly ‘Bonnie’ says we’re often visited by loved ones who have passed. And she tells some great stories about her father’s attempts to let her know he’s there.

You Might See Them And Not Know

In addition what about ghosts that appear in a corporeal form? You may be seeing them and not even know it. We’ve got a story about that too.

To sum up most of my readers and listeners know how much I love the west.

It’s All A Land Of Enchantment

Even more I believe all of the west is a land of enchantment, not just New Mexico.

Native Americans Knew It Too

Certainly there’s plenty of Native American Lore dating back to the times before any Europeans came to this continent.

Spooky

In the same vein American Indians knew there were places across this land that could have been termed ‘spooky’ for one reason or another, and accepted the idea of ‘ghosts’.

Thanks In Order

In conclusion I want to personally thank two of the most interesting people I have met in my travels and visits to National Parks and US Forest Campgrounds.
