#Nomadlife-Lessons-Part-Two-Bob Davis Podcast 1140

#Nomad Life Lessons Learned

Firstly #Nomadlife-Lessons-Part-Two-Bob Davis Podcast 1140 is a continuation of the line of thought I started in Part 1 in this series.

Welcome To The Anarchy

Secondly #Nomadlife itself is an anarchic world.

That is to say there are no set rules or “To Do’s” necessarily.

In other words there is no set way to be a ‘nomad’.

All About The Individual You

The lifestyle chiefly depends on the individual.

For instance what you need and what works for you.

Most Advice Is Useless

By all means my own interpretation of what is available when it comes to nomad content I have found to be pretty useless if you’re just starting out.

Purpose

Accordingly having a conversation with yourself about your purpose is important.

Work Is No Picnic These Days

Certainly it’s necessary to reiterate current economic conditions make housing very expensive…

Even more rules about coming back to the office put people of all age groups in a vice.

Because with seventy minute commutes in most major cities and higher prices, keeping up has become difficult.

Not to mention the oppressive nature of corporate and work life.

Alternative Lifestyle

So wanting an alternative lifestyle is not just a romantic notion these days.

All in all #nomadlife is a consideration…

What To Expect

Therefore in #Nomadlife-Lessons-Part-Two-Bob Davis Podcast 1140 my goal is to give future nomads an idea of what to expect.

For the most part it’s a great experience.

Revenue

However we all need a revenue stream and a purpose.

Vehicle or ‘Rig’

Thereafter almost everyone’s attention turns to what kind of vehicle to get.

Unquestionably this is is the fun part.

By the same token so is throwing all your crap away before you leave.

Don’t Borrow Money For An RV

But don’t borrow a bunch of money for an RV because they are not built for what we do..

Leave The Minivan At Home

And you might want to think twice about cramming into a minivan…

Although you will find videos and blogs that tell you this is a great idea.

To clarify there is a fair amount of desperation out there…

You need a little bit more room and capability than a minivan although some have made it work.

It’s a Personal Journey

Finally I don’t think the personal journey is emphasized enough.

Even more I think going out for the first year alone is a good idea.

In conclusion I spent a fair amount of time at the end of this podcast talking about the personal journey.

The Story Travel Tells

The story you are allowing time and space and travel to tell you.

And it’s so important to remember sometimes to have an adventure you have to just go.

Creative-Turning-Point-Bob Davis Podcast 1097

Creative Turning Point

Above all no matter what you do it feels like we have reached a creative turning point. Details in Creative-Turning-Point-Bob Davis Podcast 1097.

All The Shows

Firstly I have been catching up on all the shows I missed when I was traveling.

And for me that means watching a lot of TV for the past thirty days.

Social Media Horror Show

Secondly my readers and listeners know my feelings about the horror show social media has become.

Stale

But this time around something feels off.

Even more ‘stale’.

Sameness

That is to say there is a sort of ‘sameness’ in what I am seeing and experiencing as a viewer and user.

Creative Inspiration

More importantly those feelings cause me to ask questions about creative inspiration in my own efforts.

Ground Breaking Drought

For example where are we when it comes to truly ground breaking creative ideas brought into the world?

Socials and Streamers

Certainly the so called streamers and the socials are having issues.

Peak Scripted TV?

The number of shows are being cut back.

Struggling

In addition the social media sites are struggling.

Finally the whole thing just doesn’t feel the same to me as it did a few years a go when all this stuff was new.

How Do You Find Compelling Content

In addition perhaps that is one of the reasons I decided to go on the road.

After that I found more compelling content.

New Ideas

For instance I found travel and nomad life to be a wellspring of new ideas.

Source

To sum up how do you ‘re-pot’ yourself?

Further what is your source of inspiration and creative ideas when preparing to take your next step?

Turning Point

In conclusion it does feel like we’re at a creative turning point across the board in this land.

Next

Most importantly the question of what’s next?

Doomsday-Prep-Overkill-Commonsense-Bob Davis Podcast 852

Preppers Gone Wild

My inbox has been full of prepping info ever since I did the podcast about Ebola. These days if you think your phone isn’t listening to you, think again. Learn more in Doomsday-Prep-Overkill-Commonsense-Bob Davis Podcast 852.

Nuclear War

First of all is it necessary to prep for nuclear war? Hydrogen bombs are exponentially more powerful than the Hiroshima bomb.

Moreover Minneapolis and Saint Paul would be dust if we got nuked. In that case, what’s the prep for?

Ordering Your Supplies From Glenn Beck

Do I really need to spend six hundred dollars for a year’s supply of dried beans in case of a nuclear war?

If Jesus Is Coming You Don’t Need Supplies

Some people want to be ready for the day when our Lord Jesus returns. I thought Jesus will take the believers before the trouble starts. If you’re down with the Man, save your money on prepping. You’re out of here.

Collapse Of All Government May Be Just What The Doctor Ordered

What about Earthquakes? Hurricanes? Even more, a collapse of all government?

Freeze Dried Lasagna And Family Radios

Do I need dried food and hand charging radios for that? What if Yellowstone finally blows? Well, THAT one you might want to think about.

What To Prepare For…Really

People who live in the Upper Midwest should be prepared for two things. A power failure in the dead of winter and a really bad tornado. The only real concern is whether we can make it to the lake, and if we want to spend more time with the family.

What If People Pull Together In A Disaster?

Finally End Of The Worlders seem to think those who live in the exurbs will be beset by inner city hoards. But the Preppers all predict the people they don’t like won’t make it. Especially the liberals. But what if people work together in a disaster?

Prep Overkill

In conclusion there are things we should have a plan for. Time for an easy conversation about some of the things we should not worry about, on a beautiful summer night. Common sense says worrying about the rest of it is just overkill.
