Best Podcast Winner/Denver Westword's "Best of Denver 2019" - Conversations with people from all walks of life who spend the majority of their time exploring the wild places on Planet Earth

    #60 - Developing Mental Resilience

    Welcome to episode number 60 of Nomad Ramblings: Conversations from the Road. We recorded this episode inside Brian’s topper in an undisclosed location in Rim Country, Arizona. I (Craig) left Gunnison just under a week ago to take my nomad game to another level by throwing myself into my YouTube channel - The Coleman Road Journal - and other nomad revenue generating strategies. To that end, I’d greatly appreciate it if you seek out and subscribe to my channel. There’s some decent stuff up there now, including some video of this conversation, and more content will be coming on a regular basis.

    Today, Brian and I talked about how we’ve found the nomad lifestyle bolsters our mental resilience. In the last episode, we talked about our nomad strategies to fortify our economic resilience to situations like the coronavirus, and to day we turn our attention to our mental resilience. We both revisit our past experiences with substance abuse and mental health challenges (see episodes 12 and 18), and talk about how the COVID19 situation is ripe for stress and substance abuse for those in lock-down situations. We encourage everybody to be mindful of their stress and pursue healthy outlets for relief. Naturally, the backcountry nomad approach is working for us.

    #59 - Developing Resilience

    There’s no doubt these are challenging times and many are facing despair over finances, loss of income, and life threatening illnesses. Living through such an experience can help us to identify any weaknesses in our resiliency. How can you become better prepared to ensure stable income when the next crisis unfolds?
    In this episode we discuss content creation as a full-time job and how it’s essentially recession-proof. Brian explains his method of growing his YouTube Channel to 70K subscribers and Craig decides to jump in feet first producing videos about living on the road with his blind dog, Roux.
    This was a really fun episode to record from our camp outside of Sedona. Hope you all enjoy this conversation as much as we did! Thanks for tuning in.

    #58: Camp Covid Cul de Sac Is Full

    #58: Camp Covid Cul de Sac Is Full

    Hey Everyone, Brian here. We are currently truck camping and social distancing outside of Sedona, AZ at an incredible location with amazing views. Craig left Gunnison a few days ago and we’ve met up with fellow nomads Christo, Jason, and Beau to create what we’ve nicknames the Covid Cul de Sac. In this episode, Craig talks about his experience on the front lines dealing with the general public with his bus driving responsibilities and I dive into the extreme isolation I’ve endured for the past three months. We both agree spending time with fellow nomads during this crisis has definitely been chicken soup for the soul.

Fern Popescu ,

Cool stuff

Loving the podcast so far, super down to earth and informative. I guess the only thing I'd say is that sometimes the audio is a bit too quiet? I'm sure that's just teething tho. My questions would be: have you found that living nomadically, and in nature has affected your mental health/spirituality/relationships etc, both positively or negatively? I'd also love to hear what books you've found useful / inspiring while living this lifestyle.
