Is Nomad Life Over?
Firstly it’s a good time to ask Is Nomad Life Over? Details in Is-Nomad-Life-Over?-Bob Davis Podcast-1129.
Secondly while I remain fully committed to the nomad lifestyle I wonder whether the trend is starting to fade.
Certainly the longer I do something the more I see the reality in it.
But these days I am not feeling the much vaunted nomad community as much as I used to.
Social Media Presence
Another key point are the Vanlife and Nomadlife Instagram posts.
As well as YouTube videos.
And videos on other platforms.
Undeniably the reality is often not the picture presented in social media.
Unquestionably there are difficult days.
Notwithstanding those difficult days there are truly sublime moments.
In fact that’s why I still want to live the nomad life.
Trend Starting To Wear
In view of all this though it feels like the trend is starting to wear.
To put it another way I am seeing a lot more RV people out here these days than straight up nomads.
In addition attendance at some venerated ‘nomad’ events has been spotty.
On the other hand it seems to me more Americans are being called back into the work place.
Therefore barnstorming around the country isn’t as easy as it used to be.
With that said it doesn’t mean there is a great desire to be physically present.
But there it is.
Meaning and Purpose
Even more I think there might be some questions about what it all means.
In fact a great purpose.
On the negative side I’ve had some experiences and there have been some situations out here this year that should raise eyebrows.
All in all one wonders what is needed to create a sustainable nomad experience?
Eventually further technology improvements will only make nomad life easier and more productive.
In the meantime we’ll see you out there.
