Planning First Summer Road Trip-Storm Chasing-Podcast 632

Americans are allowing themselves to disregard most of the news they don’t agree with. Everything is ‘fake news’, unless it tells me what I want to hear. For those addicted, disengaging is nearly impossible. It’s important to realize in a concrete way, there is another world out there. There are many escapes. One of the best is travel. Time to prepare to head out in Planning First Summer Road Trip-Storm Chasing-Podcast 632.

Getting Ready

Planning the trip. The moment before the trip begins is almost as fun as the trip itself. Makes me recall getting ready for camping trips as a boy. Everything laid out on the floor for packing in the back pack. Calling friends and figuring out what everyone was bringing. What we would be cooking over the open fire.

Storm Chasing

This Memorial Day weekend I am Storm Chasing! Many things on this week’s check list. Getting Mobile Podcast Command checked out. Renewing my drivers license. Getting a haircut so I can do my You Tube videos. Loading in the sound board, microphones, the office stuff, and the food. Double and triple checking.

Into The Belly Of The Beast

Some of the underrated but fertile Tornado Chasing areas include Southeastern Iowa, Northeastern Kansas, Eastern Arkansas and Western Texas. Then the standard destinations for Storm Chasers. Oklahoma, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa. We will chase the storm chasers and get an idea of what this tribe is all about these days. In Planning First Summer Road Trip-Storm Chasing-Podcast 632.

Nature’s Summer Show

Storms are obviously bigger than all of us. Uncontrollable. Following these storms takes you through rural America. Two lane roads. Farm roads. Small towns across the Midwest and Mid South. Places made famous during the Bonnie and Clyde era. Places generally forgotten but magnificent in their own way.

It’s All About Anticipation

Join me planning the first three legs of this summer trip, with a hint of what is to come after. This isn’t a vacation. This is how the Bob Davis Podcasts works on the road. No talking heads. No one telling me what to think. Nothing but the open road, a clean windshield and fuel tanks full. (Editor’s Note: A few hours after posting this podcast I realized I referred to the movie ‘Twister‘ as ‘Tornado‘. What was I thinking? Maybe ‘Sharknado‘? LOL)

Podcast 345

Late Night Live. After a day that started in West Texas, chillin’ at Scottsdale’s Chop and Wok where they were kind enough to provide water, and WIFI. This is one instance where pulling up in a huge vehicle with ‘The Bob Davis Podcasts’ emblazoned all over it, paid off. If you have seen the Mobile Podcast Command Vehicle traveling across the US, send us an email and say hello, and thanks for finding the Bob Davis Podcasts. After an introduction, live, from the Chop and Wok, this podcast features a montage of the day’s travel, starting in West Texas, and ending up on the ‘Road Less Traveled’ between I40, and Payson, Arizona at sunset. What do you do when your phone quits in a small town in Western Oklahoma? And what about the food at Truck Stops. Is it possible for someone to create the first ‘Farm to Table’ truck stop? Why not? This podcast happily, includes absolutely nothing about politics. It’s all just travel, and the crazy thoughts that come with it. From Farm to Table truck stops to Zane Grey! Starting in Eastern Texas, ending up in the mountains around Payson, Arizona in one day, with a lot of observations and questions along the way. Don’t forget New Mexico, land of enchantment, either.
