Springbreak-Roadtrip-Part1-Blueridge-Mountains-Bob Davis Podcast 985

Springbreak Roadtrip Part1

First of all it’s time for a Springbreak Roadtrip and part 1 is Virginia through the Blueridge Mountains. Secondly long time listeners know I’ve been handling some personal business in Virginia for the last few weeks. Boy, is it time to get back on the road and we’ll do it in Springbreak-Roadtrip-Part1-Blueridge-Mountains.

Heavy Energy

Most importantly I find driving long distances is the best way to process heavy energy.

Sunshine And Warmth On The Agenda

Consequently I would have been happy with a trip to anywhere but I want sunshine and warmth.

Florida!

Therefore Florida it is.

Panama City Beach Life

When you consider Florida and spring break, certainly Panama City Beach and Pensacola come up. This part of the state is easy to get to on the Interstates.

Back Roads

However I am a back roads nomad. Get the full story in Springbreak-Roadtrip-Part1-Blueridge-Mountains-Bob Davis Podcast 985.

Blue Ridge Switchbacks

So my plan takes me through Southwestern Virginia through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Tennessee. North Carolina. Alabama.

Mountain Roads

In short, mountain roads. Detours. Two lane state and US Highways. Truck Stops. Walmart Parking lots and maybe some camping.

Paths In Life

Above all this gives me a chance to share some thoughts about why we choose certain paths in life.

Choices

In addition the idea that sometimes the universe or higher power, or God checks back with you to make sure you’re confident of the choices you’ve made.

Are You Sure?

That is to say, are you sure?

Nomad Lifestyle

For instance in my life, my commitment to the Nomad Lifestyle and what that means.

Why?

In the same vein, why do some of us choose this approach to life? Why do others choose another way.

Steak Dinner

Meanwhile there’s the road and a steak dinner at a truck stop!

More Depth

Finally I love travelogue podcasts however I think listeners deserve a little more depth from these podcasts. That’s one of the reasons I travel, and want to get out on the back roads.

Connect To Bigger Ideas

To sum up travel is the best way to see, learn and connect my experiences to bigger ideas.

Gulfcoast-Winter-BeachLife-Bob Davis Podcast 970

Gulfcoast Winter Beach Life

Most important Gulfcoast Winter BeachLife can get cold. But it’s still a lot better than winter in Minnesota. Learn more in Gulfcoast-Winter-BeachLife-Bob Davis Podcast 970.

Redneck Riviera

Firstly I’ve been cruising the Gulf Coast. Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and now Texas. Better known as ‘The Redneck Riviera’.

Changing Weather And Time Zones

Secondly I’ve passed through warm and cold weather. Spent some cold nights on the beach.

Hurricane Damage

Even more there’s a lot of hurricane damage down here. A lot.

A Lot To Like On The Gulfcoast

However there is a lot to like about some of the beaches and beach towns along the way.

Port Aransas, Texas

For example my favorite Texas beach down is Port Aransas. I’m camped out on a beautiful beach. When I did Gulfcoast-Winter-BeachLife-Bob Davis Podcast 970, it was in the 80’s and sunny.

Sand Storm On The Beach

On the other hand that night there was a lot of wind. There were sand drifts around Mobile Podcast Command in the morning and it got pretty good.

Getting Stuck At Matagorda

In the same vein, I got stuck on another one of my favorite beaches but managed to get myself unstuck.

Never The Same

In short no no single beach remains the same from one visit to the next.

Taking My Time

Above all the biggest challenge I still face is taking my time.

Hundreds Of Miles

Certainly I am capable of driving hundreds of miles a day. I’ve done it before.

Nomad Experience

On the other hand hundreds of miles a day is not really what the nomad experience is all about.

No Going ‘Home’

For instance I don’t have to ‘go home’.

No Hurry

Moreover while I have a loose schedule there’s no hurry.

Lessons Just Keep Coming

In conclusion the life lessons just keep coming in this effort. Join me on the beach to talk about the experience so far and hear the next objectives in Gulfcoast-Winter-BeachLife-Bob Davis Podcast 970.

TruckStop-Washday-Four-States-24hours-Bob Davis Podcast 905

Seven States

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?

Truck Stops

Let’s start with two friends of the traveler. WalMart and Truck Stops.

Pilot!

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.

Unsung Heroes

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.

Real America

Finally it was a great relief to see real America after two weeks of speechifying and media coverage of politics in Iowa.
