Breaking News? Ask A Nomad

These days Breaking News is not something you’d ask a nomad about. However I think we might have some insight. Learn more in Breaking News-Ask-A-Nomad-Bob Davis Podcast 1019.

Insights on Breaking News

Firstly I just finished a podcast with my friend Don and we had some insights on a breaking news matter. Listen here.

Podcasting Isn’t Breaking News Thank God

Secondly that experience reminded me Podcasting is not a great breaking news medium.

Certainly there are podcasts that focus on current events but even these efforts focus on analysis.

Travel Isn’t About Breaking News

In addition I came to the conclusion that travel isn’t about breaking news either.

Especially Nomad Travel.

Moment My Moment

In other words Nomad Travel is a moment by moment experience.

Therefore there is a sort of Zen to it.

Life Back In The World

Even more these days I am thinking more and more about life ‘back in the world’.

In the static day to day world.

Life In The Cities

As a result I thought about how I feel when I am in cities, which I usually try to avoid.

Fear Frustration and Anger

To me the sense of fear, frustration and anger are something I can feel in the cities.

Me Too!

On the other hand I would feel those powerful negative emotions had I not decided to chuck everything and hit the road.

Slicing and Dicing

Finally back in the world there’s a sense of slicing and dicing every event that comes down the pike.

Hitting The Road Is A Trend

Because there are so many new people hitting the road I have a feeling ‘Breaking News’ will follow.

Experts Won’t Be Far Behind

That is to say whenever you get big numbers into a trend the so called ‘experts’ can’t be far behind.

Caution Scolds Ahead

Even more given certain breaking news events look for thousand words tomes cautioning people on the dangers of ‘van life’.

Going Where We’re Drawn

Meanwhile we’re out here going where and when the wind blows us.

The Secret Is Freedom

To sum up the big secret and draw of Nomad Life is Freedom.

Freedom.

A feeling many back in the stationary world don’t have right now.

But there’s lots of breaking news.

Rest-In-Colorado-Bob Davis Podcast 1013

Finally At Rest In Colorado

Firstly after a lot of back roads travel I am at rest in Colorado. But it’s hard to catch my breath at ten thousand plus feet. Learn more in Rest-In-Colorado-Bob Davis Podcast 1013.

Busy On The Nomad Road

Secondly and seriously there’s a lot of work when you’re running your business and creating from the road as a nomad.

Love It

Of course I love it all.

Fatigued? Me?

Therefore it’s not always easy to know when I am fatigued.

Fun As Hell

More importantly taking the back roads and avoiding cities from the East Coast to Colorado while fun as hell wears a person out.

Ten Thousand Two Hundred Feet

Consequently I am ten thousand two hundred feet up in the Grand Mesa National Forest.

And it is Grand!

Singing Wind

Moreover if you listen to this podcast you’ll hear the wonderful singing wind up here.

Pine Forest

And we’ll take a walk through a pine forest.

Time To Unwind

In addition we’ll talk a little about how some nomads unwind.

Not always how I unwind!

A Little Different

On the other hand I would humbly submit I am a little different than most.

Covering A Lot Of Ground

That is to say I am covering a huge amount of ground.

Not Supposed To Get Tired

But I don’t expect to get tired.

Salmon And Steak

Finally I love this nomad life. It’s been steaks or salmon on the campfire every night at some beautiful places.

Seeing A United States You Don’t Hear About

Even more I am seeing a United States you don’t hear very much about these days.

Weird Rural America?

To clarify you hear how weird rural America is.

Vibrant And Exciting

But after days of driving between 60 and 35 through small and medium sized towns across this country I see a vibrant and even prosperous landscape.

Perfect Farms and Huge Ranches

From the perfect farms in Vermont and Indiana to the wide swaths of crops extending for miles across Nebraska and Western Colorado.

From Sea To Signing Sea

Literally from sea to shining sea.

Great Summer Travel For Me

In conclusion I wouldn’t change anything about this summer’s travel.

More To Come

And there’s much more to come.

Always Better Driving West

To sum up I always feel better when driving west.

Mountains!

And I love mountains.

Love This Nomad Life

After that I love this nomad life.

Mount-Rainier-Sioux-Falls-4Days-Bob Davis Podcast 1002

Mount Rainier to Sioux Falls in 4 Days

Firstly I don’t like to travel this fast but I just rolled from Mount Rainier to Sioux Falls in 4days. Learn more in Mount-Rainier-Sioux-Falls-4Days-Bob Davis Podcast 1002.

Amazing

Secondly it was an amazing trip.

Game Changer In Sioux Falls

Most importantly I had a game changing business meeting in South Dakota that solved my connectivity problems in one fell swoop. In addition I’ll be telling you more about this fix in future podcasts.

Oregon Coast To Washington State

But it was a great trip up the Oregon Coast, to Washington’s Mount Rainier then across the Yakima Valley.

Idaho to Montana

Even more Idaho and Montana take the cake.

Grasslands

And the grasslands of North Dakota!

South Dakota In 100 Degree Heat

Finally the trip across South Dakota in one hundred degree heat was one for the books.

One Day to Minnesota and Wisconsin

Further still a quick one day trip across Minnesota to Wisconsin for Father’s Day 2021.

Fading Restrictions and Burgeoning Optimism Across America

Above all a trip across the northern tier of the United States at a time when Covid restrictions are beginning to face for the time being, and people seem more optimistic.

Record Visitors At The Parks

Certainly the national parks have record visitors and are packed while the National Forests and Bureau of Land Management campgrounds are deserted.

Lassen Mount Shasta and More

Moreover I was able to enjoy Lassen National Park and Mount Shasta before quite an adventure in the Rogue River Siskiyou National Forest in Oregon.

Logging roads, coast line, rain forests, arid valleys and more.

Back Roads Forever

To clarify I am struck by how much running across the country this way on back roads is similar to binge watching a series on HBO or Netflix at the height of the pandemic last year.

Travel Velocity

Certainly I wonder if I am one of the few nomads moving across the country at various levels of travel velocity, covering so much ground all on the back roads.

How Far and How Fast

To sum up I wonder how the rest of the my nomad friends listening and reading this blog travel. How far and how fast.

Running Fast Can Be Fun

In short I’ll say it again. I don’t like to travel this fast. It’s exhausting. But it can be fun as well.

In the same vein I hope listeners and subscribers enjoy some of the stories and experiences from this mega trip.

Plans Change

In addition I’ve changed my plans a bit, I think, for the rest of the summer.
