Return-Of-The-Light-Bob Davis Podcast 1080

Return Of The Light

Most importantly the shortest and darkest days of the year also celebrate the return of the light. Details in Return-Of-The-Light-Bob Davis Podcast 1080.

Their Celebrations

Certainly we have our winter celebrations.

Birth Of Light

Above all they celebrate the birth of light.

Human Race

These days I think a lot about how old the human race is.

And how these celebrations have evolved over the eons.

Ancient

That is to say they resonate with us because they are ancient.

Old West

Firstly when I am in the desert I think about the Old West.

Secondly and perhaps more importantly there is evidence of the Spaniards here.

And the Indians before the Europeans came.

Even more there’s evidence of those who came before the Indians, who were immigrants to this region at one time too.

And all the ancients.

Standing On Their Shoulders

We stand on their shoulders today.

Difficulties

Finally I’ve done some podcasts recently about potential economic difficulties.

Future Dread

The result has been some listeners and subscribers feeling dread about the future.

Winter Rituals Give Us Hope

However even when times are tough this winter celebration and ritual gives us hope.

Picking Up The Pieces

Because no matter what happens we’ll pick up the pieces and start again.

Change

Above all we don’t like change.

Can’t Always Plan

In fact we react to more than plan for setbacks and difficulties.

Take A Breath

On the other hand I think it’s fair to say we use these rituals at different times of the year to take a breath.

To draw strength.

And keep on keeping on.

Message Of Hope

Therefore here’s a message of hope for everyone.

In conclusion things may get worse before they get better.

We Make Sure

But they always get better sooner or later. We make sure of that.

Heavens

Finally take a moment to join your ancestors this season and look to the heavens.

Stars and Moon

See the same stars, moons and planets they saw, going back thousands and thousands of years.

Light and Hope On The Way

And look for the signs of light and hope for the future.

Ridiculous-RV-Rig-Prices-Bob Davis Podcast 1078

Ridiculous RV Rig Prices

Most importantly when people are paying fifty percent more for fuel they can’t afford these ridiculous RV and Rig Prices. Details in Ridiculous-RV-Rig-Prices-Bob Davis Podcast 1078.

Paid Shills

Furthermore it’s the paid prognosticators on YouTube doing the RV salesperson’s work by telling people rig prices can’t come down.

Engaging On This Issue

Firstly I got into a little bit of a tiff on Instagram recently because I decided to engage on this price issue.

Prices Cuts

Secondly this podcast explains why price cuts are on the horizon.

And I reference another podcast I did some months ago on economic issues.

Nomad Perspective

Certainly I see things from the nomad perspective.

That is to say we don’t like to spend money.

Some Have More Resources

Certainly some people come to this lifestyle with more resources than others,

In addition others buy an RV to use every now and then.

Sticker Shock Prevails Among All

But even the causal RV person is shocked at what dealers are asking for these rigs.

Rising Interest Rates

Even more there is the issue of rising interest rates and less liquidity in the banking system.

Breaking Point

To clarify most financial people these days say we’re reaching the breaking point on inflation.

Wholesale Prices Plummeting

It’s early yet but as a result wholesale prices for used cars in particular are plummeting.

Dealers Jacking Up Prices

However dealers are jacking up prices to get the most out of the consumer before the whole thing goes south.

And it will.

RV Dealers Playing The Same Game?

One wonders whether RV and Rig sellers are playing the same game.

Finally we nomads usually operate with rigs cobbled together from heavier duty vehicles

Moreover we are often very choosy about creature comforts.

Versatility and Reliability Win The Day

And we’ll often choose versatility and reliability over hardwood floors and double door refrigerators.

Experience Is The Best Teacher

That is due to the fact that experience is the best teacher.

You Don’t Need A Double Door Fridge Out Here

To sum up to the nomad borrowing tens of thousands of dollars to overpay for a shiny new rig is just not an option.

Change Is Coming

Finally the overall economic picture suggests things are about to change.

Deflation

In fact big price reductions on almost everything may be in the picture soon.

Sales People Always Say This Is The Best Time To Buy

However sales people will always tell prospects it’s a great time to buy.

YouTubers Too

Including those prognosticators on You Tube.

Eye Opener

In conclusion always do your own research.

But don’t forget to look at the overall economic picture at the same time.

It’s an eye opener.

Breaking News-Ask-A-Nomad-Bob Davis Podcast 1019

Breaking News? Ask A Nomad

These days Breaking News is not something you’d ask a nomad about. However I think we might have some insight. Learn more in Breaking News-Ask-A-Nomad-Bob Davis Podcast 1019.

Insights on Breaking News

Firstly I just finished a podcast with my friend Don and we had some insights on a breaking news matter. Listen here.

Podcasting Isn’t Breaking News Thank God

Secondly that experience reminded me Podcasting is not a great breaking news medium.

Certainly there are podcasts that focus on current events but even these efforts focus on analysis.

Travel Isn’t About Breaking News

In addition I came to the conclusion that travel isn’t about breaking news either.

Especially Nomad Travel.

Moment My Moment

In other words Nomad Travel is a moment by moment experience.

Therefore there is a sort of Zen to it.

Life Back In The World

Even more these days I am thinking more and more about life ‘back in the world’.

In the static day to day world.

Life In The Cities

As a result I thought about how I feel when I am in cities, which I usually try to avoid.

Fear Frustration and Anger

To me the sense of fear, frustration and anger are something I can feel in the cities.

Me Too!

On the other hand I would feel those powerful negative emotions had I not decided to chuck everything and hit the road.

Slicing and Dicing

Finally back in the world there’s a sense of slicing and dicing every event that comes down the pike.

Hitting The Road Is A Trend

Because there are so many new people hitting the road I have a feeling ‘Breaking News’ will follow.

Experts Won’t Be Far Behind

That is to say whenever you get big numbers into a trend the so called ‘experts’ can’t be far behind.

Caution Scolds Ahead

Even more given certain breaking news events look for thousand words tomes cautioning people on the dangers of ‘van life’.

Going Where We’re Drawn

Meanwhile we’re out here going where and when the wind blows us.

The Secret Is Freedom

To sum up the big secret and draw of Nomad Life is Freedom.

Freedom.

A feeling many back in the stationary world don’t have right now.

But there’s lots of breaking news.
