Freedom-Summer-2021-Wisconsin-Bob Davis Podcast 1004

Freedom Summer 2021 Wisconsin

Most importantly Freedom Summer 2021 Wisconsin is about relaxation. I am live in this podcast lakeside and that is what’s in store in Freedom-Summer-2021-Wisconsin-Bob Davis Podcast 1004.

By The Lake

Sun down.

Fireworks Family and Fun

A front row seat to a world class fireworks display.

Restrictions Fade

Above all as the painful memories of Covid-19 restrictions fade it’s time to let go. For the time being.

Time To Let Go

Even more lots of people are letting go on lakes all over Wisconsin.

Experience and Memories

Firstly this gives me a chance to talk about the layers of experience and memories the last nine months of nomad life have brought.

Where To Next

Secondly an opportunity to think out loud on where to go next.

It’s Hot!

And it’s hot. I like that.

Transition Year For Us All

Certainly it has been a transition year for the Bob Davis Podcasts.

No More Politics

For instance the last political event I will cover was the Iowa Caucuses in February of this year.

All Over The United States

Subsequently I have literally been all over the United States.

To clarify I don’t remember every little route and place I’ve been.

As a result I often have to consult my maps and trip plans.

Layers of Memories and Feelings

However for Freedom-Summer-2021-Wisconsin-Bob Davis Podcast 1004 I choose to talk about how the memories of where I’ve been “layer” in.

Like a dream

For example, the Eastern Sierras. Or the undulating fields of still green wheat in Washington State and Idaho. The grasslands of North Dakota. The lonely back roads of South Dakota or the Oregon beaches.

Experience Is The Best Teacher

In addition the lessons I’ve learned from Wal Mart and Truck Stop parking lots to deserted National Forest Campgrounds.

All of it ‘layered’ in.

How Long Will You Do This Nomad Thing?

To sum up people keep asking me how long I’ll do the nomad thing.

Peeling An Onion

In short it’s like peeling an onion. Each layer is more and more interesting.

Zen Of Travel Is The Best

Above all feeling the zen of travel and adventure is amazing and so great, I can’t wait to get back out there.

Back Roads Rule

In conclusion, people still wonder whether I am lonely, scared, or tired of the back roads.

The True Glory Of America

But on this fourth of July I’d say the nomad way is the best way to discover this country in all it’s true glory.

New-Mexico-American-Tibet-Bob Davis Podcast 995

Is New Mexico The American Tibet?

Above all the states I’ve visited New Mexico feels like the American Tibet. Details in New-Mexico-American-Tibet-Bob Davis Podcast 995.

Not Really Tibet But…

Firstly I am not suggesting at all that a US State would actually BE Tibet.

Lots Of Travel

However I’ve traveled a lot.

Secondly I never spent too much time in The Land Of Enchantment.

The Land of Enchantment For Sure

Certainly now I have begun to understand why New Mexico owns that motto.

Mountains

For example the Manzano mountains. Not the first thing you’d think of when you consider New Mexico.

Sunsets

On the other hand driving through these mountains and sunset was a mind blowing experience,

History

In addition maybe it’s the history in the state going way back.

Unique Experiences

But if the middle part of the state isn’t your thing there are other unique experiences waiting.

Albuquerque

I mention it but then, there’s Breaking Bad. So…

Roswell and Taos

Of course Las Cruces, Roswell, Santa Fe, and Taos.

Heading North and West

To clarify I took 285 North out of Roswell. connected up with 60 West, then to 41 North.

Hey Wait! This Is Like…American Tibet!

After riding along these US and State Highways I started to come to the conclusion New Mexico has a sort of Tibet like quality.

Vistas

For instance wind swept vistas at any time of the day. And the most mysterious of all, White Sands.

National Forests

During this part of the trip I ended up in national forest campgrounds in the Cibola, all the way up to the northern part of the state in the Carson National Forest. Not to mention some of the best Bureau Of Land Management sites I’ve seen anywhere.

Amazing.

Travel’s Real Value

Finally I’ve certainly talked about the value of travel.

Wander Without A Schedule

And yes, sometimes it feels spiritual. Especially when you can wander without a schedule.

In the same vein it’s the wandering.

Forget The Gotta Haves Just Go

Moreover the wandering without worrying about getting somewhere or the ‘gotta haves’ in life.

Happy Accidents

In conclusion sometimes those happy accidents make all the difference in the world.

To sum up I have never been to Tibet.

Meditation

However the wind, mountains, sunsets and the solitary nature of my own personal travel plans brought the Land of Enchantment up a notch in my mind.

Vast Distances and Views

Most importantly remember New Mexico travelers are dealing with vast distances. In addition a long history.

Overall a very different experience.

Nomad-Avoids-National-Insanity-Bob Davis Podcast 975

This Nomad Avoids National Insanity

Firstly listen to Nomad-Avoids-National-Insanity-Bob Davis Podcast 975. And to my New Years Podcast here.

Peace In Campground

Secondly I have new respect for nomads and travelers who seek the peace of the campground.

New Year New Themes

Above all this podcast continues some of the themes of my new years podcast.

It’s Not Over

I don’t think the craziness is over, for example.

And we’re not going to resolve our differences anytime soon.

Hit The Road

As a result I have gone on the road. Permanently.

Not Touching Nomads

In short most of the things that are driving people crazy right now aren’t touching me.

A Fire And A Sunset Is A Good Cure

In the same vein sitting by a fire and watching the sunset will cure almost any neurosis!

Back In The Day

For example a few years ago I would have been all over the mess in the US Capitol this week.

No more.

Political Talk Is Bad Energy

To clarify many of my new listeners and subscribers don’t want the bad energy political talk brings.

Sick To Death Of It All

Even more many of my long term people are just sick to death of the whole thing.

I don’t blame them.

Coffee, Fire and Sunset

Moreover when I put the sunset, coffee and fire together, who cares?

Welcome To The Epoch Of Upheaval

Finally I would be a fool to deny we’re living through a significant period of upheaval.

No Triggers

But if you allow yourself to be triggered by every event you’re going to have a tough time.

Let Outcomes Go For Now

In addition it’s not a good idea to attach our attention to outcomes.

Stay Flexible

Most importantly we have to stay flexible.

Change and Challenge Ahead

That is to say even more change and challenge is ahead.

Pace yourselves.

The Wilderness Helps

Meanwhile getting out in the wilderness anywhere can’t hurt.
