Highway-To-Heaven-Bob Davis Podcast 1061

Where Is The Highway To Heaven?

The Highway To Heaven is in the Colorado Rockies. I discovered the Highway To Heaven on a trip from Fort Collins to Snowmass Village. Learn more in Highway-To-Heaven-Bob Davis Podcast 1061.

House Sitting

Even more I seem to have fallen into a couple of house sitting opportunities recently.

Fort Collins

Firstly in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Snowmass Village

Secondly two spectacular ski in ski out winter villas here in Snowmass.

Sticks With Me

But it was the trip from Fort Collins to Snowmass that sticks with me.

Stunning Winding Road

Above all coming down a winding road from ten thousand feet, I caught a glimpse of a perfect mountain town.

And renamed the route “The Highway To Heaven”.

Sun Shines Supreme

Certainly I have found the light of the sun to be different at higher altitudes than lower.

Fourth Of July

In addition coming down those mountain highways on the fourth of July was really something.

Spring To Summer

In short Colorado transitioning from late spring to summer.

And the colors.

Bright Greens, the red dirt in this part of the state, browns of the mountain and blue of the sky.

Therefore my name for this highway is The Highway To Heaven.

World Back Home

In the same vein the more I travel the more the world of bricks and sticks seems unreal.

Wild and Free

Likewise on this fourth of July with all the issues and happenings and concerns, I was not touched.

Grateful

To clarify I found myself just being grateful for the opportunity to go where I want.

Endless Road Trip

On an endless road trip during an endless summer.

Seer and The Seen

On the other hand these days everyone wants to tell us where to go and what to see.

Further this places an intermediary between the seen and the seer.

Solitude

To sum up isn’t having the experience in solitude the experience?

Low And Slow Travel

In conclusion lower and slower travel provides an opportunity to really get to know individual states.

And I am looking forward to much more of Colorado!

Podcast 210

On The Road. A listener email sparks a discussion about the true nature of technology. “Tech” is nothing more than a tool. Tools can be used for good, or bad. Problems are never completely solved, but they are managed. The constant ‘dystopian’ predictions about the effects of tech on unemployment, and the impending obsolescence of Human Beings is becoming just another meme. It’s time to become a little more realistic about technology in our society and not attach only good, or only bad to it. “What will people do when machines do everything?”. Will we¬†become fat and useless? Or, will we find other, new things to occupy our thoughts. The Bob Davis Podcasts emphatically votes for the positive version of the future. This podcast mixes a response to listener email with some bizarre observations about the continuing trip. This leg included Colorado, Utah and Arizona. Driving through the most impressive landscape America has to offer. Denver and the Rockies with their ski areas (Vail, Aspen et al), switchbacks, tunnels, racing Union Pacific Trains along side the highway, The Navaho Nation, Monument Valley, Arizona, and the final run to Phoenix on Route 89, to Interstate 17. All the weird towns, and the endless search for coffee. This podcast was recorded, mixed and produced in the big booth at Denny’s in Flagstaff, Arizona. The greatest experience of this ‘On The Road’ effort is the ability to produce podcasts and post then from anywhere. Using off the shelf technology, The Bob Davis Podcasts has been liberated from ‘The Man!’, to go anywhere, anytime, and still be able to record, produce and file podcasts. Moreover, as the travel ‘experience’ sinks in, there will be plenty of stories and lessons to share in future podcasts. Its easy to forget how diverse, massive and unique the United States is, especially the Western States. Sponsored by Baklund R&D.¬†
