First of all after hitting seven states in less than three weeks, it’s time for a break. Learn more about my latest mega trip in TruckStop-Washday-Four-States-24hours-Bob Davis Podcast 905.
Questions About Travel
These days I am asked a lot of questions about my travels.
Food and Laundry
Certainly the best questions are about simple stuff. What do you eat? Where do you do your laundry? Is Mobile Podcast Command an RV?
Let’s start with two friends of the traveler. WalMart and Truck Stops.
When it comes to Truck Stops I have my favorites. Flying J, Pilots, Loves and T/A’s. Even more, some of the truck stops with names I can’t remember are great. Pilot is my favorite.
Wash Day At The Truck Stop
In TruckStop-Washday-Four-States-24hours-Bob Davis Podcast 905 we spend wash day at the Pilot south of San Antonio, Texas. The music’s classic rock, the People’s Court is on TV and there’s a full range of stuff to look at.
Travel In An America You Don’t See On TV
In addition in this podcast I make some observations about travel in an America saturated with political ‘news’ coverage.
Stressed Drivers and Travelers Need Calm
In contrast at most of the truck stops there’s no CNN, or Fox News or talk radio. There’s country, and classic rock, and a generally calm atmosphere for stressed truckers and travelers.
Back On The Road
Fill up. Get Something to eat. Take a shower. Do some laundry. Back on the road.
24 Hours of Driving and Back To Minnesota
Four states in one day in this podcast. From San Antonio to Dover, Oklahoma, and then onto Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, to finally end in Minnesota on an unusual sunny and warm day in February.
Here’s to the unsung heroes on the road. The drivers, the people at the Pilot, the WalMart, the guy in Oklahoma who stopped to talk to me about my T-shirt.
No Academy Awards Here
Especially relevant is the fact that none of these people will probably ever win an academy award, run for congress, or even make a speech beyond funerals or their kids’ birthday parties.
On The Job
Above all though, they’re back on the job every day. All across this vast country.
Finally it was a great relief to see real America after two weeks of speechifying and media coverage of politics in Iowa.
