Nomad Relaunch Going West Next

Above all it has been a minute or two and now it’s time for a nomad relaunch to go west. Details in Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990.

Florida and Outer Banks

First of all, just returned from my trip to Florida and along the Outer Banks.

Podcast Avoidance

In addition I avoided doing a podcast for at least week.

Coming To The End Of Family Work

Most importantly we were coming to the end of our work here in Richmond related to family.

No More From The Driveway Podcasts

Secondly it did not feel right to me, doing another spate of podcasts from my mom’s driveway in Richmond.

Back On The Road

Consequently I made the decision to get back on the road.

Questions About Nomad Life

Meanwhile time for a podcast with some of the questions people keep asking me about my decision to go nomad

Future Travel

And some plans for future travels.

Normies With Questions

For example people wonder why I don’t “live somewhere” and travel for a few weeks and “come home”.

We’re Worried About You

Moreover I’ve been told people are “worried” about me.

Getting The Nomad Thing Explained

Finally it’s clear the so called normal world just doesn’t get the nomad thing.

No Half Million Dollar RV For Me

Certainly I did not sell a big house and buy a half million dollar RV. Nothing even close.

Actually Having Fun

However people I’ve met actually having fun are driving aged trucks in various states of disrepair.

Flight Of Fancy

Lots of flights of fancy in Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990 to clarify some of these ideas.

Pure Freedom Through Forever Travel

In the same vein there’s really nothing that compares to the feeling of pure freedom which is part of travel without having to come home, because you are home.

Are We Really Free?

In short I wonder whether we are truly free in this country.

Burdens

Burdened with debt.

Uncomfortable

Forced to work in situations we don’t feel comfortable in.

Restrictions

Restricted in one way or another these days.

We Can Drive If We Want To

In conclusion for the time being the one thing we can do is drive. See the country when, where and how we want.

I can’t wait to head back out.

Podcast 598-Nomad Yoga Family

Untethered

Life is short. If there’s something you want to do, there’s no better time than the present. Most of us have all sorts of reasons why we don’t follow our passion. We have responsibilities and possessions that demand our attention. There are always ‘reasons’ why we can’t do what we really want to do. Find out the first steps in how to do it in Podcast 598-Nomad Yoga Family.

The Nomad Yoga family is Josh and Jenna and their two children. They’d always had a passion for Yoga and Travel. A family tragedy was the transformation clarifying the idea that life is finite. The couple sold their house, their car and most of their possessions to downsize into a used Earth Roamer with a plan to ‘overland‘. Living life untethered. They’ve been on the road now for over a year, heading down the west coast of Canada and the US, on their way to Central America and South America.

It’s a Trend

Living untethered or on the road permanently is a trend these days. There’s more to living this way than just deciding you want to travel. It’s cutting the cord completely. Think of selling your house, car and possessions and adjusting to life on the road, or on the seas, permanently. It’s one thing for an individual or retirees and another thing entirely for a young couple and their kids.

Josh and Jenna and their small children live in about 120 square feet of space in Earth Roamer #28. They travel, teach yoga and teach yogis how to build their studio businesses. How do you live day to day? What about getting the youngsters to school? Child Care? Personal time for each other and time alone? Do planning and checklists go out the window? Once you’re on the road, how do you change when you realize this isn’t a vacation or a long visit, this is actually life now?

Freedom and Technology

Josh answers many questions about living untethered in the conversation we have in Podcast 598-Nomad Yoga Family. We also talk about running a business on the road and the inevitable technology challenges. The desire to break free is a new trend in the United States. Not all services have caught up with it.

With Mobile Podcast Command I’ve done a fair amount of ‘untethered’ travel. I’ve certainly stayed out for long periods of time, whether covering the presidential primaries or some of the festivals around the country every summer. I have had the experience of heading ‘home’ to the Twin Cities and saying to myself, “I’m going home to pick up my mail and go to the bank. Why?”

Just do it

The overland experience is not for everyone. As Josh says in Podcast 598-Nomad Yoga Family, you really can’t plan for it. It’s something you just have to do. Once you’re out there, you pick up what you need along the way. The experience of discovering who you are and what you need is part of the trip.
