Wearing-Arizona-Out-Bob Davis Podcast 1026

Wearing Out Arizona

Firstly I am wearing Arizona out right now. High fuel prices means spending more time in individual states. Learn more in Wearing-Arizona-Out-Bob Davis Podcast 1026.

Got A Thing

Secondly I have had a thing for Arizona for a long time.

Search For The Old West

Above all I continue the search for the Old West.

All Desert

Even more now that the colder weather is filtering down from the Canyon to the Mountains it’s all desert for me.

Love It!

And I couldn’t be happier.

More Time In Arizona

As the result of higher fuel prices I am adjusting my travel plans so that I can spend more time in certain places.

Nomads In A Good Position

Certainly I’ve made the case that nomads are better positioned to reduce their exposure to inflation. Click here for that podcast.

Free Camping

Even more since orienting to this new plan I have become very focused on dispersed camping, free camping and even hanging out at Truck Stops when I am in transit. I share some of those tips in Wearing-Arizona-Out-Bob Davis Podcast 1026.

Something About Arizona

But overall there is something about Arizona.

Maybe it’s the sunsets.

Juniper

In addition I can never get enough of the scent of juniper on the fire.

Pines And Mountains

Or the pines and the mountain woods.

Highways

Finally we have all seen the Arizona Highways pictures.

On the other hand there are some amazing highways and views in this state. In the past few weeks I’ve had the pleasure to experience many of them.

Plan

To sum up we nomads are lucky. If we plan it right we can avoid spending too much money.

Low Profile

And I am still learning how to achieve as low a profile as possible so I am not exposed to the higher and higher prices.

As a result I get to see some really cool places that most wouldn’t bother.

Whether it’s Gila Bend in the south or the Navajo Nation to the north.

Off The Beaten Path

In the same vein if you can get off the beaten paths anywhere you get to see different parts of the US and these are some of the best places, in my opinion.

Inflation-For-Nomads-Bob Davis Podcast 1024

Inflation For Nomads

You might think inflation for nomads is something we don’t think about. However we nomads might be in the best position to deal with inflation. Learn more in Inflation-For-Nomads-Bob Davis Podcast 1024.

Hitting The Road

Firstly I have been hitting the road for extended periods of time since 2014.

Life On That Road Forever

Secondly about a year ago I decided to chuck it all and hit the road permanently.

Will Higher Prices Kill The Vibe?

However as oil and food prices rise some people wonder how long any of us nomads will be able to continue.

Surprise

But it might be surprising to learn I think nomads are in the best position to deal with rising prices.

Disclaimers

Certainly I have some disclaimers in this podcast.

No Politics

That is to say this podcast isn’t about politics.

For example I am not going to tell everyone what ‘the government’ should do to deal with this problem.

System Of Thinking

On the other hand I have been employing a system of thinking about these things that has yielded some observations that can help anyone concerned about rising prices.

What Might Be Going On

Even more I conducted an organized observation of grocery stores and truck stops from coast to coast in the last few months and I learned a few things about what’s going on with consumers.

For Nomads

Finally for nomads the real question is where the most significant price increases are coming from and how long they can last.

Changing Up The Vibe

In short the ‘go where my intuition sends me’ vibe is the first casualty.

What’s The Mission

Moving further along that line of reasoning the only task left for me is the mission for the second full year of nomad life.

Slowing Down

And slowing down the velocity of travel.

Careful Planning

Above all careful planning and controlling expenses suggests nomads can get through this insanity and prevail.

Pollyanna

In conclusion there’s something about then nomad experience that allows us to forget the rest of the world.

For a time.

Reality Breaks In

Every now and then reality breaks through the bliss.

Most importantly this doesn’t have to be a death sentence for the mission or the experience.

Only The Disciplined Can Be Truly Free

In short what is required is a disciplined way of thinking and operating to stay on the road and in the flow.

Freedom-Summer-2021-Wisconsin-Bob Davis Podcast 1004

Freedom Summer 2021 Wisconsin

Most importantly Freedom Summer 2021 Wisconsin is about relaxation. I am live in this podcast lakeside and that is what’s in store in Freedom-Summer-2021-Wisconsin-Bob Davis Podcast 1004.

By The Lake

Sun down.

Fireworks Family and Fun

A front row seat to a world class fireworks display.

Restrictions Fade

Above all as the painful memories of Covid-19 restrictions fade it’s time to let go. For the time being.

Time To Let Go

Even more lots of people are letting go on lakes all over Wisconsin.

Experience and Memories

Firstly this gives me a chance to talk about the layers of experience and memories the last nine months of nomad life have brought.

Where To Next

Secondly an opportunity to think out loud on where to go next.

It’s Hot!

And it’s hot. I like that.

Transition Year For Us All

Certainly it has been a transition year for the Bob Davis Podcasts.

No More Politics

For instance the last political event I will cover was the Iowa Caucuses in February of this year.

All Over The United States

Subsequently I have literally been all over the United States.

To clarify I don’t remember every little route and place I’ve been.

As a result I often have to consult my maps and trip plans.

Layers of Memories and Feelings

However for Freedom-Summer-2021-Wisconsin-Bob Davis Podcast 1004 I choose to talk about how the memories of where I’ve been “layer” in.

Like a dream

For example, the Eastern Sierras. Or the undulating fields of still green wheat in Washington State and Idaho. The grasslands of North Dakota. The lonely back roads of South Dakota or the Oregon beaches.

Experience Is The Best Teacher

In addition the lessons I’ve learned from Wal Mart and Truck Stop parking lots to deserted National Forest Campgrounds.

All of it ‘layered’ in.

How Long Will You Do This Nomad Thing?

To sum up people keep asking me how long I’ll do the nomad thing.

Peeling An Onion

In short it’s like peeling an onion. Each layer is more and more interesting.

Zen Of Travel Is The Best

Above all feeling the zen of travel and adventure is amazing and so great, I can’t wait to get back out there.

Back Roads Rule

In conclusion, people still wonder whether I am lonely, scared, or tired of the back roads.

The True Glory Of America

But on this fourth of July I’d say the nomad way is the best way to discover this country in all it’s true glory.
