Summer-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1056

Summer Peace

Firstly Memorial Day signals the start of summer in the US and I think we all need to get some Summer Peace in 2022. We’ll talk about it in Summer-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1056.

I Know The Rules

Due to social media I am well aware of all the rules concerning virtue signalling for holidays like this one.

Up To You

But in this podcast I will leave the protocols of this extended weekend to you.

One Crisis To The Next

Secondly these days life for many Americans is one crisis to the next.

Time For A Break

Therefore it is time for a break.

Peace

That is to say we all need a moment’s peace.

Podcasting For A Long Time

Above all I have been doing podcasts for a long time.

And it is rare for me to be able to do a podcast on any topic as succinctly as this one.

Back In The World

Certainly life ‘back in the world’ is standing in line.

Not So Good

Or waiting for hours to talk to an actual human being.

Even more it’s strapped budgets and time schedules.

In addition work projects that don’t seem to make any sense.

Who’s In Charge?

Finally I get the sense that those in charge have no idea how to even explain ‘the problem’ much less fix it.

Idea Of Peace

As a result I decided to dedicate this first official podcast of summer to the idea of peace.

Summer Peace.

That is to say getting a moment of peace for yourself this summer.

Makes No Sense

In the same vein the world doesn’t make sense to most of us.

Nomad World

On the other hand in the nomad world things are a little different.

For example we spend a lot of time talking about our rigs.

And planning delicious dinners.

Cooperation and Consensus

Moreover while we talk about things back home we seek cooperation and consensus rather than winning an argument.

Gratitude

After that we’re just grateful.

In short I recorded Summer-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1056 on memorial day to share some memories and a genuine wish for some summer peace for you…

And everyone.

Summer Peace.

Get Some.

Post-Eclipse-Take-A-Breath-Bob Davis Podcast 1055

Post Eclipse TakeĀ  A Breath Bob Davis

Firstly eclipses put out a lot of energy so post eclipse it’s good to take a breath. We’ll do that in Post-Eclipse-Take-A-Breath-Bob Davis Podcast 1055.

Front And Center Witness

Secondly as a nomad I have been front and center to witness three big eclipses.

Scope And Power Of An Eclipse

Above all very few natural events compare in their scope and power with a eclipse.

Tex-Mex!

For example as for this eclipse we had a big Tex-Mex Nomad dinner.

Coffee and Conversation

We drank gallons of coffee and talked for four hours.

Energy Dropped After

Finally after it was all over all of us dropped.

More Sleep Please

Even more two or three days later we’re still grabbing more sleep.

That’s how it is.

New Friends

Most importantly I am again reminded about getting to know new friends.

Community

Certainly the community aspect of slower travel is one of its major benefits.

Barnstormer…But

That is to say I am a barnstormer.

I think nothing of travel from west coast to east.

High Price Of Fuel

However the high price of fuel currently has us all stopped down in the desert.

Million Dollar View

Meanwhile I have a million dollar view here at the Imperial Dam Long Term Visitor Area. Right on the border of California and Arizona.

Learning

Therefore I am learning more about other nomads and campgrounds.

Planning

In the same vein this was part of my plan anyway.

In short when I blaze trails without stopping I don’t get the feel of an area or its people.

Yuma And Other Towns

When I stop after that I learn about Yuma, Arizona. Or some other southwestern towns.

And I love it.

Total Lunar Eclipse

To sum up all of this was accentuated by a beautiful total lunar eclipse on the evening of May15th 2022.

Count My Blessings

In addition it is an opportunity to count my blessings at this location.

Future Plans

And look ahead to plans for the rest of the summer.

In conclusion will I continue my nomad journey?

Above all I am watching economic developments like a hawk. For a synopsis podcast click here.

But I don’t think I’ve even started on my nomad journey!

Nomad-Decisions-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 1046

Nomad Decisions and Stories

Above all my nomad decisions and stories are my own. They are not meant as judgements. Learn more in Nomad-Decisions-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 1046.

Not Easy

Secondly nobody said it would be easy.

Certainly we nomads love to tell the story of how it all went down.

Review

Lately I have been reviewing my decision to get rid of everything and hit the road.

To clarify I do not regret that decision.

Anatomy Of A Decision

But I think the process of making the decision is interesting.

Even more I don’t think anyone is having an easy time with life these days.

Therefore the idea of discussing life changing decisions helps everyone.

And telling some nomad stories along the way.

Another Great Nomad Story

For example someone I met had rented a car, threw her stuff in it, and within three hours was on the road.

Forever.

She’s still driving the rented SUV.

“I’ll deal with that later”.

Action Is What’s Important

In the same vein Nomad-Decisions-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 1046 is about the process of making a big decision and taking action on it.

Most importantly I don’t regret it.

No Best Practices

However I am not really sure if I used ‘best practices‘ in making that decision.

To sum up here, the main thing is it was a decision that was acted upon.

Pure Bliss

Certainly that led to pure bliss as I drove and drove across the country and back.

High Prices

On the other hand the current high price of fuel as me stopped down in the desert with a bunch of nomads in the same boat.

This too is a learning experience.

Finally where ever listeners and subscribers are..

No matter how hard it gets.

Choices and Decisions

We still have choices and we can still make decisions.

And take action.

In short every now and then I like to review and retell the story of how I got here.

In addition revisit what I consider success to be.

Nomad Definition of Wealth and Success

And what wealth looks like out here.

Sometimes that’s a hot shower and a good Internet connection.

And that’s OK.
