Working In The Texas Oil Patch

First of all we need a break from all the bad news and heavy energy these days. Time to look up my friend Don Anger for Working-In-The-Texas-Oil-Patch-Bob Davis Podcast 919.

Journey To Working Man

Don’s journey from Twin Cities radio guy to oil patch working man is a great story. Even more, no matter how tough things get it doesn’t get Don down. He shows up.

Positive Attitude

Having a positive attitude is most noteworthy. Right now this guy is sleeping in his car and working fourteen hour days. What does he want to talk about?

Vikings and Van Halen

Favorite hometown teams and music.

That certainly sounds pretty good to me right now.

What Does Work Mean To You?

Don and I talk about what works means. Whether it’s bagging groceries, slinging hash or pulling oil out of the ground in a world gone crazy. We hit all the topics.

Road Warriors Unite

It’s especially relevant that both of us are road warriors. Anger lives in Arizona and spends three weeks in Texas in the fields, and heads home for six days off every month.

Moreover my crazy back road trips are legendary.

No Corona Talk Please

In Working-In-The-Texas-Oil-Patch-Bob Davis Podcast 919 you won’t hear any predictions about the pandemic, the economy, jabs at Trump, the Media or Democrats or whining about quarantines.

Why Bad Asses Love Solitude

Finally you will hear a couple of guys talking about our love of solitude, work, rock and roll, and Texas.

Texas!

Can I say it again? Texas!

A Break From The Madness

In conclusion, we all need a break every now and then from the madness. Hanging out with Don was my break this week.

What was yours?

Iowa BugOut Mega Road Trip

I told myself I would take a long road trip after Iowa Campaign Coverage. Certainly this is already a mega road trip. Learn why in Iowa-BugOut-Texas-Coast-Bliss-Bob Davis Podcast 904.

Objective Texas Gulf Coast

Moreover the target; The Texas Gulf Coast, sure looked like a hop skip and a jump from Iowa. On a map!

Oh yeah. Texas Is Really Big

Most noteworthy, the sheer size of Kansas, Oklahoma, and especially The Lone Star State.

Galveston! Oh Galveston!

First of all, Galveston Island. Especially the old sections of downtown Galveston you don’t usually hear about. Second, the famed ‘seawall’, bars and resorts and more.

Matagorda Beach Bliss

Above all I wanted warm humid weather. I wanted the beach. After two more days driving I found the Matagorda Peninsula. Why do I love Texas? For fifteen bucks you buy a permit, drive onto the beach, and start your fire.

Beach Town? We Have A Winner!

Even more, under a full moon, it was magical. Finally the other end of the Peninsula which I keep calling ‘North Padre Island’, includes the great beach town of Port Aransas and a state park near there where I chilled for a night.

A Road To Nowhere Was Best Of All

Above all South Padre Island. What I call the ‘north end’ of South Padre Island. A road that leads nowhere but between dunes and the shore. A full moon. Boondocking on the road. Alone. Another full moon. Bliss.

Finally, from South Padre Island onto Brownsville and the border. All to come.

Surf’s Up!

These days people who live in the cold northern reaches usually want to get on planes and head for the South Pacific or Virgin Islands. Hard to believe you can just drive to Texas, and right onto the beach.

If you’ve got a little time.

Taking Travel To A New Level

I love to travel. Even more I think there’s nothing better than going to the story. Learn more in Election2020-Barnstorming-Iowa-Challenges-Bob Davis-Podcast 895.

Back Roads In The Dead Of A Midwest Winter

First of all when I go, I go back roads only. Second, I take the podcast studio on the road with me.

Iowa Caucus Coverage

I’m covering the democrat campaigns to win the Iowa Caucuses in less than a week.

Up Close and Personal

Especially relevant is the why in this equation. I do this because there’s no equal to seeing these candidates up close and personal. In addition going to the story is better than hearing pundits tell us what to think about what’s literally happening.

No Judgements

These days a podcast that takes you inside campaign events, without judgement, is quite unique.

Personal Challenges Barnstorming In Winter

Saying this is difficult is certainly true. Doing it in the dead of winter is challenging to say the least. I talk about the personal challenges doing this, in Election2020-Barnstorming-Iowa-Challenges-Bob Davis-Podcast 895.

Going To The Story

If you want to hear some of the podcasts I’ve done about the pipeline protest, air shows, and Sturgis click here.

Cold Feet and Generators, Walmart Parking Lots and Truck Stops

Long time listeners know I do all this from a twenty year old ambulance which has not been converted into an RV. Camp stoves, coolers, generators, propane and electric heaters. More importantly cold feet are the order of the day.

No Van Life Picture But Having A Blast

Due to these kinds of challenges you’d think I would be miserable. On the contrary I am having a blast. It’s no ‘van life‘ picture in the mountains, but it’s tons of fun.
