Nomad-Life-Pleasure-Pain-Bob Davis Podcast 966

Pleasure and Pain In Nomad Life

First there’s pleasure and pain in nomad life. It’s not all joy, all the time. Learn more in Nomad-Life-Pleasure-Pain-Bob Davis Podcast 966.

Summer in November

Second we’re live in Virginia on a perfect summer like morning.

Living Life On The Road

So it’s time for an easy talker in a continuing report on living life on the road.

Best. Idea. Ever.

Certainly I am still sure getting rid of everything I owned and hitting the road is still the best idea I’ve ever had. For me!

Pure Bliss

Above all those moments considering my new found freedom are pure bliss.

And Some Pain

On the other hand making silly mistakes can end in a lot of pain.

What’s The Mission On The Road

These days I find myself thinking more deeply about the actual reason for my decision to hit the road.

Experienced Traveler

Most importantly I felt called in some way to do this. Certainly I’ve traveled a lot in the last few years. Sometimes for months at a time.

Life On The Road

So I am no stranger to life on the road.

Home?

On the other hand I always ‘had’ to come ‘home’.

Home Is Here. Now.

Now home is where I happen to be on any given day.

Freedom?

Many people i talk to yearn for that kind of freedom.

Reason For the Adventure

However for me, there has to be a reason for this adventure. Find out why I say this in Nomad-Life-Pleasure-Pain-Bob Davis Podcast 966.

What’s The Mission?

To sum up, this is an adventure. This is a mission. I’m just not quite sure what it is right now.

Finding It Together

In conclusion I guess I’d say we’ll find it together. In a sense that’s what these podcasts are all about…and that’s my pleasure!

Not to mention enjoying an endless summer this winter.

Nashville-Broadway-Saturday-Night-Bob Davis Podcast 965

Nashville Broadway Saturday Night

What’s Nashville’s Broadway District like on a Saturday night? It’s something you have to hear to believe. I’ll take you there in Nashville-Broadway-Saturday-Night-Bob Davis Podcast 965.

Friends Out On Broadway

First of all every time I come to Tennessee I visit my friend John Holland and we do a podcast.

A Nomad Checks In On Music City

Second when John moved to Nashville and I went nomad, I knew I’d be visiting Music City at some point.

Riding And Podcasting

But rather than sit around and talk, we thought we’d take a ride through one of the top tourist attractions in Nashville and do a podcast.

So that’s the backdrop for Nashville-Broadway-Saturday-Night-Bob Davis Podcast 965.

Covid Concerns In Nashville

Above all there sure doesn’t seem to be much concern about Covid here! Thousands of people in the streets. Many of them wearing masks. Many not.

Certainly Broadway is a tourist attraction. However it is a lot of fun just to see so many people having so much fun.

Having Fun On Broadway

Party buses. Pedal Pubs. Bar band after bar band “turning it up to eleven” to compete with each other and the street musicians.

Stories Too

More importantly there’s a lot of stories in this podcast.

New City New Job

Moving to a new city for a new job. All the usual stories about Nashville’s real “down home” nice.

Further plenty to talk about when it comes to Tennessee’s lack of a state income tax and business friendly environment. The state is growing, of course. But Nashville is a major city these days.

Big Changes In Nashville

A big change from what it was like when I used to come through here on Family road trips.

Trump Country?

Of course everyone I know wants to know what it’s like in “Trump Country”.

Not So Fast

On the other hand Nashville is a more cosmopolitan place than it used to be. Meanwhile Tennessee itself of course votes ‘red’.

Finger On The Pulse

John Holland gives us his usual political run down. After spending years in Chattanooga, Tennessee and working in many of the south’s now burgeoning cities, he’s usually got his finger on the pulse.

Media Town

Finally the fact is, I was amazed at the number of people living in the Nashville Metro who work in media.

The music business, recording studios, film and video production, music itself and much more.

Finally it’s obvious from a trip through Broadway on a Saturday Night, Nashville loves to party.

The Real Nashville…Next Time

Even more I can’t wait to come back and see the real down home Nashville the locals know.

Music City works for me!

Offgrid-In-Trump-Country-Bob-Davis-Podcast-964

Offgrid In Trump Country

Firstly wouldn’t it be cool to live offgrid in a home that actually pays you? I am in Kentucky and my guest in Offgrid-In-Trump-Country-Bob-Davis-Podcast-964 builds these homes.

Rural Kentucky

Secondly rural Kentucky like most of rural America, is Trump country.

Stolen Election

Out here they think the democrats stole the election from President Trump.

Lots of Stories

Most importantly there are a lot of stories about ballots all over the country.

Jay Hamilton

But Jay Hamilton is unique.

Curious and Active Mine

Certainly Jay’s uniqueness is driven by his curious and active mind.

Lots of Fun

This is what makes spending time with him so much damn fun!

Benford’s Law

However when he applies his intellect to Benford’s Law and precinct level election data, sparks fly.

Election Fraud?

Above all many wonder about election fraud.

Nomad Adventures

The great thing about being a nomad is the opportunity to meet and talk with people like Jay Hamilton. You get to join me in this effort in Offgrid-In-Trump-Country-Bob-Davis-Podcast-964.

Big City Friends Wonder

Moreover my big city friends keep asking me what Trump supporters think.

Meet Jay

Therefore I give you Jay. I do not pass judgement on his theories. I’ll leave that to you.

We’re All Human Beings

In the same vein I have learned we are all human beings.

Some Very Nice People

When I was covering the democrat caucuses in Iowa, my Trump friends wanted to know was up with “those people”.

I noted the fact that many of the democrats I’d met were very nice people.

Check This Analysis

Finally I think everyone should check out Jay’s analysis of what could have happened in the 2020 election.

Getting Offgrid?

And if you are looking to get off grid Jay is your guy.

Taking-My-Time-Isn’t-Easy-Bob Davis Podcast 963

Taking My Time Isn’t Easy

Most importantly if you know me you know taking my time isn’t easy. At all. In addition my subscribers know I am no stranger to travel. However now that I’ve gone full gonzo nomad the idea of taking my time has new significance. Learn more in Taking-My-Time-Isn’t-Easy-Bob Davis Podcast 963.

Heavy Travel For 6 Years

First of all I’ve been traveling a fair part of the year for the past 6 years. So choosing to hit the road permanently seemed to be a natural development if not a bit extreme.

No Plan Is The Plan

Second of all aside from planning the actual highways and back roads to take on travel days, no plan IS the plan.

Pace Of Travel For Type A’s

Therefore sitting in a state park in Indiana recently gave me some time to reflect on how the pace of travel should be different if you live on the road.

Stupid Mistakes

Even more when I am pushing to get from one place to another that is when I make stupid mistakes.

In The Now

Above all it becomes necessary to remind myself it’s all happening in the now.

I mean literally

No Home To Go To

Certainly I don’t have to go ‘back’ home at any time. so I should be able to take my time, right?

Zen Is Easier Said Than Achieved

On the other hand for type A individuals that is easier said than done.

Letting Go A Little

As a result this is something I have to remind myself of almost constantly. I am not giving up. Maybe just letting go a little.

Yes There Is An Overall Plan

To clarify there is a plan. I’ll let you guys in on some of it in this podcast.

But it is a loose plan.

Minute Details

I’ve never been one to plan things down to the minute details. However I can get pretty intense when things don’t work out exactly as I planned.

Finally I am sure more and more ideas like this will become clearer and ‘gel’ as they say, as time goes on.

It’s all very new to me right now.

Where’s-The-Landslide-Bob Davis Podcast 962

Where’s The Landslide?

Learn more in Where’s-The-Landslide-Bob Davis Podcast 962. Penguin Pundits told us over and over one of these candidates would probably win the election ‘by a landslide’. What happened?

Not Minute By Minute Coverage

Firstly I don’t do minute by minute election coverage.

Nomad Election Coverage

Secondly I’ve made a decided effort to go on the road permanently to avoid just this sort of nonsense!

Fairfield Iowa

Most importantly I am in Fairfield, Iowa. A great mix of people in a great small Midwestern town.

A Political History For The Bob Davis Podcasts

Even more Fairfield was where I ended my 2020 Iowa Caucus fiasco coverage.

2020 Election Started With The Caucus Confusion And Ended The Same Way

Therefore I was honestly not surprised when November 3rd’s Election Results ended in nearly the same kind of confusion as the Iowa Caucuses this year.

Telling A Story

Above all podcasts have an opportunity to tell a story on any subject.

No Stats And Judgements…Sorta

We Know media loves its statistics and judgements on election day.

Taking You Through The Night…Again

On the other hand Hey-Where’s-The-Landslide?-Bob Davis Podcast 962 takes you through the night.

Locals Check Ins and Our Future

Certainly there are some stats. But there are also interviews with locals, check ins and some thoughts about the future sure to surprise.

Experts Just Can’t Help Themselves

Meanwhile all the experts are jumping up and down. What happened to the polling? Why didn’t things work out the way we said they would?

Bob Davis Podcasts Called It Weeks Ago

In short if you had been listening to these podcasts you already knew the polls actually predicted close races in the contested states. I’ve been saying this for weeks. Yeah, I talk about it in Where’s-The-Landslide-Bob Davis Podcast 962.

Finally now we have to wait for the results.

I’ll Get You Out Of The Political Roach Motel

In conclusion if you are enslaved by a political identity, or trapped in the roach motel of politics, this is a good podcast for you.

Results First

To sum up maybe it would be better if we waited for the results to come before we tell everyone what the results will be, right?
