Road Trip With Me

First of all have you ever wondered what a road trip with me is all about? You’ll find out in Nomad-Ride-Along-Bob Davis Podcast 971.

Southwest Texas!

Secondly there are more than a few observations in this podcast about Southwest Texas and the travel so far.

Updates Every Hour

Most importantly the plan is to do a two to five minute update every hour as I travel.

Hit Play And Learn More

Finally when you hit play, the day compresses down to about half an hour. Check it out in Nomad-Ride-Along-Bob Davis Podcast 971.

Internal Processes

Moreover this process is often more internal than external. Now I understand why people take a sailboat around the world, alone.

Creative Spirit And Solitude

Even more it’s the solitude. Being alone ignites the creative spirit.

Ride With Me? Say What?

Therefore if you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to ride with me you can do it in this podcast.

From Brownsville to Laredo and Points West

Meanwhile I am transitioning from the Gulf Coast Beach Life to the drier desert air. From Brownsville to a place called Carrizo Springs, Texas. Way out here in the middle of nowhere. But we’re somewhere, right?

Borders, Walmart, Campgrounds and Motels

Even more you get an answer to questions like how close am I to the border? Is it true I got kicked out of a Walmart Parking Lot? When you’re just out there do you stay at campgrounds and motels?

Checkpoint Charlie

After that we get to go through a Border Patrol checkpoint. You have no choice. You have to go through it. Makes mask mandates look tame.

Stop?

A friend asked me yesterday why I was driving so much. Why not stop in these little places?

The Open Road

To sum up once I head west I crave the open road.

Full Days

Certainly my days are full. Travel. Work. Fueling. Stopping. Cleaning. Constantly.

Nomad Objectives and Schedules

In short I have a schedule and objectives in this nomad effort. I know it sounds weird but it’s true.

Be My Ride or Die

Be my Ride or Die and we’ll discover it together in Nomad-Ride-Along-Bob Davis Podcast 971.

Coronavirus Madness Hack With Travel

These days it’s getting to the point where all this talk about Coronavirus is wearing me out. I thought, what’s a hack for all this stress? A podcast about travel. Here it is in Coronavirus-Madness-Hack-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 911.

Too Much Social Media and News

Moreover whether it’s social media or TV News sometimes it can be just a little bit too much.

It’s Madness

Time for a Madness Hack. Talk about back roads travel across the United States. Above all there are some great places to visit and experience in the United States. Since I just got a new road atlas, time to talk.

Back Roads Routes For Bug Out

Since I only travel on back roads these days, some of the discussion of routes and places might come in handy. You never know when you might have to bug out.

Freedom

Especially relevant is the word Freedom. The wide open feeling you get on a back road.

All Fifty States

In Coronavirus-Madness-Hack-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 911 I’ll go through all fifty of the states.

Alaska and New England

I’ve crisscrossed all these states many times. In contrast there are just a few states I’ve never been to. I’ll tell you about my plans for the New England coastal states, and Alaska.

RV Talk

Also we’ll talk a little but about RV’s. In contrast to Van Life people and some RV folks, I tend to cover a lot of ground. My RV needs might be a little more robust than hauling a trailer or driving a behemoth with three bedrooms. Even though are they are super cool.

Always More

Finally the more I talk about hitting the back roads the more places I remember I’ve been. I couldn’t possibly cover them all in one podcast. There’s always more when it comes to travel.

Travel Tips Too

From Alabama to Wyoming I’ve been there. I’ll share routes, locations and places to see. Plus some tips for making travel a little easier.

Take A Break From The Madness

Above all just doing this podcast made me feel a lot better. It’s double length just to make your break from the madness even more enjoyable.

(Editor’s Note: I absolutely forgot Hawaii. Can’t drive there. But, I really want to visit Hawaii too!)

Back-Road-Trip-Chattanooga-Bob Davis Podcast-841

These days if you want to find out what’s going on you have to hit the road. We’re in Tennessee for a few surprises. Learn more in Back-Road-Trip-Chattanooga-Bob Davis Podcast-841.

Southeastern Tennessee is as Republican as it gets in this country. Even more, a modern economic miracle has taken place in Chattanooga, where a public private partnership has transformed the city.

All the talk about what people in this country might do in the 2020 election is most noteworthy. A theme in these podcasts has been attacking the perception that people with an R in front of their name are actually conservative.

Certainly Chattanooga is a miracle. Back in the day it was an industrial powerhouse. Due to it’s role it was considered one of the dirtiest cities in North America. A public private partnership turned it around. Learn more here.

In addition, Tennessee as a whole is certainly booming these days. From Volkswagen in Chattanooga to the music business in Nashville and the federal government corporate entity known as The Tennessee Valley Authority, things are good here.

Especially relevant to me though is the right-wing orientation of the state as a whole, and yet, all these institutions which might be considered socialist, by any other name.

Finally, local expert John E. Holland joins the podcast to talk about politics in the region and Tennessee’s burgeoning development strategy today.

In conclusion people here consider themselves ‘conservative’ down to flying confederate flags and wide margins for President Trump in 2016. Meanwhile public/private partnerships and Federal corporate assets allocate tax dollars and investment and they love it.

To be sure Tennessee as a whole is truly wonderful. When it comes to principles, though, one wonders what ‘conservative’ means, after all.
