#Nomadlife-Lessons-Part-Two-Bob Davis Podcast 1140

#Nomad Life Lessons Learned

Firstly #Nomadlife-Lessons-Part-Two-Bob Davis Podcast 1140 is a continuation of the line of thought I started in Part 1 in this series.

Welcome To The Anarchy

Secondly #Nomadlife itself is an anarchic world.

That is to say there are no set rules or “To Do’s” necessarily.

In other words there is no set way to be a ‘nomad’.

All About The Individual You

The lifestyle chiefly depends on the individual.

For instance what you need and what works for you.

Most Advice Is Useless

By all means my own interpretation of what is available when it comes to nomad content I have found to be pretty useless if you’re just starting out.

Purpose

Accordingly having a conversation with yourself about your purpose is important.

Work Is No Picnic These Days

Certainly it’s necessary to reiterate current economic conditions make housing very expensive…

Even more rules about coming back to the office put people of all age groups in a vice.

Because with seventy minute commutes in most major cities and higher prices, keeping up has become difficult.

Not to mention the oppressive nature of corporate and work life.

Alternative Lifestyle

So wanting an alternative lifestyle is not just a romantic notion these days.

All in all #nomadlife is a consideration…

What To Expect

Therefore in #Nomadlife-Lessons-Part-Two-Bob Davis Podcast 1140 my goal is to give future nomads an idea of what to expect.

For the most part it’s a great experience.

Revenue

However we all need a revenue stream and a purpose.

Vehicle or ‘Rig’

Thereafter almost everyone’s attention turns to what kind of vehicle to get.

Unquestionably this is is the fun part.

By the same token so is throwing all your crap away before you leave.

Don’t Borrow Money For An RV

But don’t borrow a bunch of money for an RV because they are not built for what we do..

Leave The Minivan At Home

And you might want to think twice about cramming into a minivan…

Although you will find videos and blogs that tell you this is a great idea.

To clarify there is a fair amount of desperation out there…

You need a little bit more room and capability than a minivan although some have made it work.

It’s a Personal Journey

Finally I don’t think the personal journey is emphasized enough.

Even more I think going out for the first year alone is a good idea.

In conclusion I spent a fair amount of time at the end of this podcast talking about the personal journey.

The Story Travel Tells

The story you are allowing time and space and travel to tell you.

And it’s so important to remember sometimes to have an adventure you have to just go.

Road To Shambala

Firstly the road to Shambala took me through the Grand Canyon, Navajo Nation and the San Juan Mountains. Learn more in Road-To-Shambala-Bob Davis Podcast 1059.

Obsession

Secondly the road to Shambala is all about a bit of an obsession these days.

Tired Of The Vice

Certainly younger adults are beginning to tire of high rents and home prices back in the world.

And the day to day pressure in big cities that has begun to feel like a vice.

Welcoming Community

Therefore there’s a lot of conversation about how to design and build a welcoming community.

Sustainable Community

Even more a sustainable community that works.

Welcome to Shambala!

Mountains

Nestled high in the mountains of Colorado.

Mining And Farming

Above all Shambala is a mining and farm community.

But with a twist.

Dedicated To Community

Most of Shambala’s new and long term residents are committed to building just such a community mentioned above.

So far they’re making it work.

Don’t Tell Anyone

And that is why they don’t want anyone to know the actual name of the town.

Cooperation and Collaboration

For example community kitchens, Waldorf based schools and a spirit of cooperation and collaboration.

Most importantly this is a community that works at being a community.

Questions

Certainly I have questions. We’ll talk about them in Road-To-Shambala-Bob Davis Podcast 1059.

Thai Food At The Community Kitchen

However it’s pretty amazing to be able to enjoy Thai Food at the community kitchen with ingredients picked that morning from a local farm.

Newborns Welcome

Another for instance might be how the town welcomes new born babies.

Celebrations and Events

In addition there are plenty of town celebrations and events.

Networking

Finally it is an idea people network and work toward in Shambala.

Huge Trend

In conclusion interest in sustainability and community is a huge trend with certain demographics today.

In short it is great to see the work pay off in the community.

Not Bougie

Finally Shambala is a western mountain town without bougie trappings.

No Expensive Development

And without the expensive development that has ruined so many other western towns.
