Inside Virginia Ice Storm

Firstly while most of the country struggles with winter weather I am inside a Virginia Ice Storm. Ever wonder what it sounds like? Hear it in Inside-Virginia-Ice-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 982.

Stories From The Road

Secondly my rig Mobile Podcast Command has been through a lot. Time to share some stories as ice and branches fall all around me.

My Rig Is A Character Too

Above all my 2000 Ford Super Duty Ambulance is as a much a character in these podcasts as I am.

All About The Rig

In addition as a nomad I’ve learned it”s all about the rig.

A Name And A Story

And the rig has to have a name and a story. To hear the beginning click here.

Sound Of An Ice Storm

Most importantly as a Chicago native, I am fascinated with the sound of an ice storm.

Winter As A Way Of Life

Certainly Northern tier US States have more experience with winter weather.

Therefore clearing roads during snowstorms or getting power back on during an ice storm can be a challenge in the South.

Winter Not Part Of Virginia Lifestyle

In short severe winter weather is not a regular thing here in Virginia. In fact spring usually arrives in some form at the end of February!

Bitter Cold

I‘m used to the bitter cold of Chicago and the Twin Cities.

Mobile Podcast Command Loves Winter

In the same vein Mobile Podcast Command did its service as an ambulance in Wisconsin.

Desert Too

On the other hand Mobile Podcast Command has been through the heat of the desert, sand storms on the beaches. I’ll tell some stories in Inside-Virginia-Ice-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 982.

Getting Stuck. Again.

Even more, I have been stuck at a political event during Iowa’s primaries. And stuck on the beach in Texas.

Through A Lot Together

Finally we’ve been through heavy rains and wind on the west coast and heavy snows on Wyoming mountain roads together.

Part Of The Adventure

In conclusion if we nomads love our rigs, it’s because they are as big a part of the adventure as we are.

Nomad-Uses-Downtime-Bob Davis Podcast 978

Firstly how a nomad uses downtime is key. Most importantly a family emergency has pulled me off the road for the short term. Learn how I plan to use the time in Nomad-Uses-Downtime-Bob Davis Podcast 978.

Secondly truth be told; I am already hearing the highway song.

On the other hand I am finding some valuable uses for this time.

Certainly I am never restless on the road.

And I was surprised to find myself sleeping more deeply no matter where I stopped for the night.

To clarify I’ll just say there is a beautiful simplicity to being a nomad. I am never bored and I welcome each day’s brand new challenge.

On the other hand now that I am ‘static’ the challenge is how not to go stir crazy.

Therefore Nomad-Uses-Downtime-Bob Davis Podcast 978 is about using this time to take care of my family. Even more to plan and prepare for when the adventure begins anew!

As the result of this experience I really believe now that travel raises our consciousness significantly. There are interesting ties to near death experiences I talk about in this podcast.

Consequently I have been able to produce yet another podcast that doesn’t ruin the great travel vibe with political chatter. Nothing makes me happier.

In short while these are difficult times the nomad in me remains optimistic and excited about returning to the back roads again.

In conclusion while nomads have enough trouble defending their lifestyle to relatives, there’s a powerful urge to plan, prepare, repair and revive.

My mom wouldn’t have it any other way.

Rolling-With-The-Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 977

Rolling With The Changes

Firstly there’s a lot of change and we’re rolling with the changes. Especially when there is a family emergency. Learn more in Rolling-With-The-Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 977.

Abrupt Change Happens In Everyone’s Life

Secondly abrupt and surprising developments visit everyone sooner or later.

Flexibility Is Called For

Most importantly you have to be flexible enough to deal with abrupt change, even when you’re nomad.

Not Easy

Certainly I was having a great time. From Minnesota to the Gulf Coast, across the desert to Southwestern Arizona.

Plans Shift and Things Change

Even more, I had plans to head further west to an big off road race in Johnson County, California.

Things Happen

But things happen, as they say.

Whatever It Takes

Above all when your family is in crisis you have to do whatever you can.

Nomad Travel Rewind

In my case that required me to rewind all my travels in just a few days.

Interstate Driving

Subsequently I drove East on the I-10 to I-17 North, to 40 East all the way from Arizona to Virginia, and then I-85 North to the Richmond area.

All A Blur

As a result there were a lot of truck stop stays which I don’t remember. In addition a number of sights that were a blur, like the Cadillac Ranch.

Marathon Trek

In fact I didn’t even think to record anything for this podcast in Mobile Podcast while making that marathon trek.

Massive Change

Finally the point here is that we’re going through massive change. Some will applaud the changes. Others will not.

Flexible Enough To Roll With The Changes

Likewise as I have pointed out in many recent podcasts, during periods of intense change and challenge, one has to be able to roll with the changes.

To sum up, flexibility is required.

Attached To Outcomes?

For example right now I am dealing with a number of strong and independent personalities, myself included. Being rigid and attached to a certain outcome doesn’t really help in this environment. I’ll explain in Rolling-With-The-Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 977.

Listen And Learn More

In conclusion clearly there’s something going on here. You’ll have to listen to find out.
