https://www.aconsciousrethink.com/18984/why-is-life-so-complicated/

The Nomad Solution

Certainly nomads will agree being out in the middle of nowhere better than being in a city.

Energy

Firstly there’s a kind of energy in forests, mountains and deserts.

Smooth.

Calm.

Opposite In The City

Secondly you get the opposite energy in cities.

Some Small Towns Not Good

Even more these days in small towns.

Which is a surprise.

Suburbs?

For instance the “Suburbanization” of small towns like Flagstaff, Arizona.

Carnival In The Red Rocks

Or the “Wisconsin Dells” approach of places like Sedona, Arizona.

Finally there is the Internet.

Zombie Companies

And modern companies.

Lists

We all have our lists.

I’ll give you my list in Simplicity-In-A-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 1070.

Experience A Full Monsoon Storm

But for this podcast it is the opportunity to finally fully record one of the west’s magnificent Monsoon storms.

Headphones Please

Even more the chance for listeners to sit back, put their headphones on and have the same experience I had recording.

There Has To Be A Better Way

Above all I can’t help feeling like there has to be a better way.

I Just Don’t Know What It Is

To clarify all these ‘improvements’ were supposed to make our lives easier.

How’d That Turn Out For You?

In short I am not sure anyone thinks it turned out that way.

Hitting The Road Is The Antidote

Above all this is the main reason I hit the road.

And that is true of many others.

Relax

In the same vein there is a very relaxing approach to life when you’re a nomad.

Hey! There’ No Signal In Paradise

Especially when you find yourself unable to check your social media, send and receive messages, or even make a call.

It Will Have To Wait

It’ll have to wait, whatever it is!

Nature Rewires Us

Likewise there’s something about nature that has rewired my city brain.

Storms Sun Vistas And Fun

In conclusion I’d rather be out here with the storms and sun, vistas and fun, than the city.

After that what can one say?

The Dream Is Alive…In Portland?

Sitting and drinking in cafes in urban neighborhoods just doesn’t compare to the mist after the rain, a fire, and a simple cup of coffee after the rain.

Kid’s Dream

Secondly I have wanted to come to Bonneville since I was a kid.

Hearst Newspapers

Later William Randolph Hearst got the publicity ball rolling back around 1910.

Racing Days

Subsequently racing didn’t take on the flat until the early 1930’s.

Glory Days

When all those iconic records were set.

Unquestionably the Salt Flats are still a huge attraction.

Families

In fact families still love the Bonneville Salt Flats.

House Sitting

Even more I seem to have fallen into a couple of house sitting opportunities recently.

Fort Collins

Firstly in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Snowmass Village

Secondly two spectacular ski in ski out winter villas here in Snowmass.

Sticks With Me

But it was the trip from Fort Collins to Snowmass that sticks with me.

Stunning Winding Road

Above all coming down a winding road from ten thousand feet, I caught a glimpse of a perfect mountain town.

And renamed the route “The Highway To Heaven”.

Sun Shines Supreme

Certainly I have found the light of the sun to be different at higher altitudes than lower.

Fourth Of July

In addition coming down those mountain highways on the fourth of July was really something.

Spring To Summer

In short Colorado transitioning from late spring to summer.

And the colors.

Bright Greens, the red dirt in this part of the state, browns of the mountain and blue of the sky.

Therefore my name for this highway is The Highway To Heaven.

World Back Home

In the same vein the more I travel the more the world of bricks and sticks seems unreal.

Wild and Free

Likewise on this fourth of July with all the issues and happenings and concerns, I was not touched.

Grateful

To clarify I found myself just being grateful for the opportunity to go where I want.

Endless Road Trip

On an endless road trip during an endless summer.

Seer and The Seen

On the other hand these days everyone wants to tell us where to go and what to see.

Further this places an intermediary between the seen and the seer.

Solitude

To sum up isn’t having the experience in solitude the experience?

Low And Slow Travel

In conclusion lower and slower travel provides an opportunity to really get to know individual states.

And I am looking forward to much more of Colorado!
