Goal Oriented

Secondly we live in a goal oriented culture.

Need Must Do Or Die

Want to becomes need to. Must do. Do or die.

Relentless

More importantly when I’m pursuing a goal I can be relentless.

Frustrated

Consequently I found myself in Arkansas the other day, frustrated and ticked off.

Preconceived Notions About The Day

To clarify I had this image in my head of just how the day was going to go. I would end up at the perfect campsite, right by the side of the road!

Arkansas

Certainly I had meticulously planned my transit through Arkansas.

Coffee Filters?

And then I ran out of coffee filters.

Haywire

As a result my day went haywire.

Off Intention…Off Course

In short I ended up on a highway I never intended to be on and wasn’t sure where I was going.

Change Your Attitude Brah

Lessons Learned

In the same vein there are many lessons I learn on the road.

Where’s The Fire?

For one thing I can forget I don’t have a tether and I don’t need to press on as though there’s no tomorrow.

How I Learn

Moreover this is how I can learn lessons that have applications to every day life.

Bliss Isn’t Always As Easy As It Looks

In addition though I talk about travel zen, reaching that state of bliss isn’t always as easy as I think it will be.

Ouachita National Forest

Finally I had to shift gears as I headed through the gorgeous Ouachita National Forest on my way to Dallas, Texas.

Short But Complex

In conclusion this is a short podcast about a complex issue.

Plans?

To sum up what happens when life doesn’t quite go the way we planned and expected?

We Don’t Need No Stinking Plans

In short sometimes the best things in life are the results of mistakes and miscalculations.

Now About Those Coffee Filters!

Or because someone runs out of coffee filters.

Inside-Virginia-Ice-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 982

Inside Virginia Ice Storm

Firstly while most of the country struggles with winter weather I am inside a Virginia Ice Storm. Ever wonder what it sounds like? Hear it in Inside-Virginia-Ice-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 982.

Stories From The Road

Secondly my rig Mobile Podcast Command has been through a lot. Time to share some stories as ice and branches fall all around me.

My Rig Is A Character Too

Above all my 2000 Ford Super Duty Ambulance is as a much a character in these podcasts as I am.

All About The Rig

In addition as a nomad I’ve learned it”s all about the rig.

A Name And A Story

And the rig has to have a name and a story. To hear the beginning click here.

Sound Of An Ice Storm

Most importantly as a Chicago native, I am fascinated with the sound of an ice storm.

Winter As A Way Of Life

Certainly Northern tier US States have more experience with winter weather.

Therefore clearing roads during snowstorms or getting power back on during an ice storm can be a challenge in the South.

Winter Not Part Of Virginia Lifestyle

In short severe winter weather is not a regular thing here in Virginia. In fact spring usually arrives in some form at the end of February!

Bitter Cold

I‘m used to the bitter cold of Chicago and the Twin Cities.

Mobile Podcast Command Loves Winter

In the same vein Mobile Podcast Command did its service as an ambulance in Wisconsin.

Desert Too

On the other hand Mobile Podcast Command has been through the heat of the desert, sand storms on the beaches. I’ll tell some stories in Inside-Virginia-Ice-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 982.

Getting Stuck. Again.

Even more, I have been stuck at a political event during Iowa’s primaries. And stuck on the beach in Texas.

Through A Lot Together

Finally we’ve been through heavy rains and wind on the west coast and heavy snows on Wyoming mountain roads together.

Part Of The Adventure

In conclusion if we nomads love our rigs, it’s because they are as big a part of the adventure as we are.

Nomad-Uses-Downtime-Bob Davis Podcast 978

Firstly how a nomad uses downtime is key. Most importantly a family emergency has pulled me off the road for the short term. Learn how I plan to use the time in Nomad-Uses-Downtime-Bob Davis Podcast 978.

Secondly truth be told; I am already hearing the highway song.

On the other hand I am finding some valuable uses for this time.

Certainly I am never restless on the road.

And I was surprised to find myself sleeping more deeply no matter where I stopped for the night.

To clarify I’ll just say there is a beautiful simplicity to being a nomad. I am never bored and I welcome each day’s brand new challenge.

On the other hand now that I am ‘static’ the challenge is how not to go stir crazy.

Therefore Nomad-Uses-Downtime-Bob Davis Podcast 978 is about using this time to take care of my family. Even more to plan and prepare for when the adventure begins anew!

As the result of this experience I really believe now that travel raises our consciousness significantly. There are interesting ties to near death experiences I talk about in this podcast.

Consequently I have been able to produce yet another podcast that doesn’t ruin the great travel vibe with political chatter. Nothing makes me happier.

In short while these are difficult times the nomad in me remains optimistic and excited about returning to the back roads again.

In conclusion while nomads have enough trouble defending their lifestyle to relatives, there’s a powerful urge to plan, prepare, repair and revive.

My mom wouldn’t have it any other way.
