Suggestions and Support For Nomad Life

Certainly I get a lot of suggestions. And I welcome the support and interest in this nomad life effort.

Recent Suggestions

Firstly, one of recent suggestion was, get a camera in the truck. Just turn it on and record. That would be my ‘video’ channel. I appreciate the fact that people want to help and participate.

Secondly it just doesn’t work that way for me.

Nomad Life Is An Internal Process

For instance my experience is this is very much an internal process. I never knew how much noise my brain made until I decided to hit the road. Alone.

True Freedom

Even more once you give away everything you own and release the connection to place the potential to experience true freedom is there.

Your Mind Makes Noise

However the mind resists. Makes noise. Produces various reactions.

New Understanding

But until I hit the road permanently I never really fully understood.

Intensely Personal Experiences

In the same vein these are intensely personal experiences.

Personal Memories Too

As a result the memories are also personal. Although I work in the audio medium it’s very difficult to relate those internal processes, let alone produce videos about it.

A Challenging Time

Finally we’re living through a challenging time. I don’t feel it as much because I am mobile. But it’s there.

Planetary Conjunction

Above all on a date which marks the ending of the darkness and the beginning of the light, and a planetary conjunction to boot, I have some observations about that too!

Sights Smells Feelings

To sum up nomad life for me has been a jumbled collection of visual memories. Sights. Smells. Feelings.

Covering A Lot Of Ground

From Minnesota all the way through the middle of the country and deep south, to the deserts of the American Southwest.

Only Just Started

In short like life itself I’ve covered a lot of ground but it feels like I’ve only just started.

Gulfcoast Winter Beach Life

Most important Gulfcoast Winter BeachLife can get cold. But it’s still a lot better than winter in Minnesota. Learn more in Gulfcoast-Winter-BeachLife-Bob Davis Podcast 970.

Redneck Riviera

Firstly I’ve been cruising the Gulf Coast. Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and now Texas. Better known as ‘The Redneck Riviera’.

Changing Weather And Time Zones

Secondly I’ve passed through warm and cold weather. Spent some cold nights on the beach.

Hurricane Damage

Even more there’s a lot of hurricane damage down here. A lot.

A Lot To Like On The Gulfcoast

However there is a lot to like about some of the beaches and beach towns along the way.

Port Aransas, Texas

For example my favorite Texas beach down is Port Aransas. I’m camped out on a beautiful beach. When I did Gulfcoast-Winter-BeachLife-Bob Davis Podcast 970, it was in the 80’s and sunny.

Sand Storm On The Beach

On the other hand that night there was a lot of wind. There were sand drifts around Mobile Podcast Command in the morning and it got pretty good.

Getting Stuck At Matagorda

In the same vein, I got stuck on another one of my favorite beaches but managed to get myself unstuck.

Never The Same

In short no no single beach remains the same from one visit to the next.

Taking My Time

Above all the biggest challenge I still face is taking my time.

Hundreds Of Miles

Certainly I am capable of driving hundreds of miles a day. I’ve done it before.

Nomad Experience

On the other hand hundreds of miles a day is not really what the nomad experience is all about.

No Going ‘Home’

For instance I don’t have to ‘go home’.

No Hurry

Moreover while I have a loose schedule there’s no hurry.

Lessons Just Keep Coming

In conclusion the life lessons just keep coming in this effort. Join me on the beach to talk about the experience so far and hear the next objectives in Gulfcoast-Winter-BeachLife-Bob Davis Podcast 970.

Podcast 567-Western Legends

Podcast 567-Western Legends. The first thing one learns on a big road trip of the Western US is that it is vast. That sky. Those mountains. The desert. The border. In the Southwest these features take on mythical proportions. It’s fertile ground for two of the greatest legends of the west. One of them dates by to 1881. The other is new by historical standards, dating back only to 1947. Each legend features a town. A town seemingly in ‘the middle of nowhere’. Tombstone Arizona developed quickly as a silver mining and ranching center. Tombstone quickly attracted gamblers and fast women interested in separating cowpokes and miners from their hard earned money. It also attracted a legendary western lawman from Dodge City, Wyatt Earp and his two brothers. It didn’t take long for trouble to find the ‘retired’ Earp. The gunfight at the OK corral is the kind of legend that spawns myth, and Hollywood loves legends that spawn myth. What really happened on October 26th, 1881 in Tombstone will be debated for many years to come. In modern day Tombstone the gunfight replayed everyday in a life-imitating-art-WestWorld kind of way. A new legend has captured the attention of the world in a completely different kind of way. In another desert near another lonely town something happened in June and July of 1947 that has never been completely resolved. The incident at Roswell is truly a modern legend. Podcast 567-Western Legends  takes you inside homespun museums and reenactments in two different towns in two unique places in the American Southwest. These are not National Parks. In their own way, the people of Roswell, New Mexico and the people of Tombstone, Arizona are paying tribute and still trying to make some sense of the events that made their towns famous across the world and influenced the thinking of generations of Americans.
