    My family and I are thinking about doing the nomad life. I too have depression and find it relaxing to be camping. We are just not sure how to begin that type of life. We have watched your videos and realized that that type of life may be right for us. Do you have any advice on how to go about it?

    This is completely amazing and can be a life changer for so many people. Did you know there are phone aps available that might be able to help your community? I do not know the cost of them though. I've worked in law enforcement for nearly 19 years, the Peer support concept has been introduced into my agency this year. We've needed it so badly. I was unaware many law enforcement agencies have these but this was this first time I had herd/seen it introduced. I don't know if it is something your interested but it's a thought. I'm so glad you both shared some of yourselves with us. You're both doing something amazing. Take care, safe travels.

    Many good brands and models, dometic ( old waeco ), engel, Indel b, mobicool fr. I have a 10year old waeco cdf-18, from spring to autumn everyday use, very good portable real fridge / freezer. Nice to have a fridge in the car, cools in 5min. It's been in the cottage and running on battery, can sleep next to it.

    Love ACCURATE debunking of one of the Most Common MISTAKES in build insulation. It’s frightening when people refer to themselves as “Professional” when they take people’s money, to glue Reflectix directly to metal. I’ll never know the (feeling) of “Ignorance is Bliss”

    ?? I have a serious question. I hope you will answer it. If there are more solar panels donated, will you distribute them to those that have already applied and didn't make this cut or are you discarding those applications and starting over with the application process? I hope you see fit to put those first who have already applied, entrusting you with all of that personal information about their lives. ??

    I’m so sorry Bob to hear that. I had no idea you walk this journey too. We lost our youngest son Branden (9/5/90-9/27/18) unexpectedly. Autopsy showed 100% fentanyl and we have reasons to believe it was murder although the police have done nothing. Our son had a good job and nice apartment. He was such a decent young man. We had no idea he ever did cocaine although fentanyl was either slipped to him on purpose or an accident. We may never know. Depression and not wanting to live are with me daily. I’m afraid to take medication as I’ve got an addictive personality so I suffer daily. I quit my job working for juvenile court. Our home sold the day our son Branden died. This last year has been a nightmare. I bought a 2012 Honda Odyssey thinking I’d just hit the road and disappear but here we still are. My husbands working toward retirement which is meager! We bought another house and see our other son, daughter in law and two little grandsons. Life is a daily struggle. There is no healing from the death of a child. I feel overwhelmed, so so sad, cry everyday looking at Brandens photos and his urn. This must be hell. I’ve prayed but I’m still a shell of who I once was. God help us all. Brandens mom, forever 28💔💔💔

    "When you are depressed your vision of life is very narrow. Like looking through a one-inch pipe." Something said to me a few years after returning from the jungle hell of Vietnam. I slowly got through it. An adult can often tough it out towards recovery. The problem with young people is that they don't have enough life experience to see beyond that one- inch view, thus they are are much more at risk. Bob: Thank you for *your* service.

    Love, tolerance and compassion; keys for living happily, useful and whole. Having recently lost my brother who had schizophrenia, and having an estranged sister with bi-polar, I appreciate what you are doing to help in regards to thIs mental health epidemic. I am a (12 year) sober guy hoping to quit the hamster wheel of work, sell the house and hit the road with my wife in our rv. It’s good to know there are tools for building community on the road. So important!

    I've realized recently that our collective sadness is the result of a world turned inward, not to self reflection, but self worship. I treat myself as a tool to better the lives of those I love, and to improve the world in which I live!! I do not know depression, because I exist to love, to love all and be all, carry the weight of those weaker than you, and go with God there is no other way to live! God bless us all!🙏

    Good point, not homeless and if had to pay rent would need fuel assistance food stamps. Because of this life people are less of a drain on the system. Wish people would understand, because you live in a van your not a bum, the reality is you can live with out any government agency helping.

    Do you think plastic drawers are better than maybe using a metal file cabinet say behind the driver's seat, which can be locked ? What's the difference or advantage of gas milage of a mini van vs. a cargo van? I know you get more space in a cargo van but at what price? I guess a tent is a very good idea to have on hand. What do you recommend? do they make tents/canopy's that attach to the back or side of vans for shade or rain protection? Being a handy person definitely has it's plusses ! thanks for the informative video !

    The lifestyle is appealing and tempting and may make sense for some but for me taking financial security too lightly seems reckless and irresponsible. I work in the private sector. Aside from social security, (which will not support a sustainable living) retirement savings is all on me. I don’t particularly enjoy working now but I certainly do not want to have to return to work when I’m in my 70’s or 80’s because I short changed my retirement by trying to retire too young.

    Thank You Bob for sharing this incredibly sensitive subject. The more I have visited campgrounds over the years, the more I find singles who feel isolated at times. They are no longer able to travel and they are sensitive about being overwhelmed with social pressure yet they still want to connect with others. I love the Tribal ideas. Many times genuine bonds are stronger outside or beyond birth family. Thank you so much for offering help and ideas. I also know the importance of good nutrition. And that isn't necessarily determined by income. Wonderful honest interview!

  • Reb Short

    One thing I can figure out from watching this video and reading this whole Comments section - You people in the US need a single payer, universal health care system.

    • PasadenaSue
      PasadenaSue 12 hours ago

      Reb Short, I think the answer includes far more than that. Many doctors don't recognize the need for nutrition in dealing with chronic illnesses, nor do they understand that "mental" health has its roots in physical health. Our brain is not separate from our body. And as long as people cannot talk about how they feel it makes getting help very difficult. I do agree with you that people should be able to get help whether or not they can afford to pay for it. Peace.

    My mom was psychizoeffective, my dad was bipolar, my brother had symptoms of both. He took his life in 2013. I, not surprisingly, have battled alcoholism as a form of self-medication. I am lucky beyond belief to not have either disorder plague me, although I do have issues. I am also very lucky to have found a woman who wants to travel with me when the kids are grown. She also is bipolar, but it's well controlled through meds. My wife is an accomplished pianist and RN, like the person in the video my wife was misdiagnosed and given antidepressants, which magnified her mania. Fortunately our lives are finally In a good place. Thank you for this video, you probably helped more people than you can imagine.

    Thank you both for your transparency & willingness to share your story. While I'm not a nomad (maybe, one day?), but I've fought major depression since I hit puberty @ 10. I'm 64, now. Sometimes, I haven't felt like I could continue, however, someone has always, incredibly, come through & helped me to get thru. Losing a child, Bob, seems to me to be the worst thing that could ever happen to a parent. My heart broke for you. My sweet husband is there for me, as are our 3 dogs, one of whom, Björn, literally saved my life. I couldn't see a way around or through & he gave me a renewed sense of being needed & loved. I'd say most people endure episodes of depression, but not all deal with it day in & day out, as I & so many do. This is a vital message & how wonderful you two have teamed up in this. Blessings & sunrises to both.

    Thank you for bringing up this subject of depression and anxiety and other mental health issues, I am not currently a nomad as of yet but it is in my life plan. I live with PTSD and depression also. I've really been wondering if a nomadic lifestyle would even be doable considering my issues... It's great to hear that others with the same issues are flourishing even with the debilitating effects of their mental health. It gives me hope that I can possibly do this myself. So thanks again for addressing this so some of us out here on the fence can actually attempt doing something they may never thought possible. 💗
