Great Summer Road Trip To Michigan

These days taking a long road trip is pretty much out of the question. But a short road trip from Minnesota to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and West Coast is perfect. Learn more in Late-Summer-Michigan-Road-Trip-Bob Davis Podcast 947.

You’ve Never Been?

First of all when I told friends I was headed to the Midwest’s ‘West Coast’ people said, “You’ve never been?”

Second as a Chicagoan I’d been to Benton Harbor and the Indiana Dunes, right?

The West Coast

However not on up Michigan’s West Coast.

The Upper Peninsula

I’d certainly been to the Upper Peninsula. But I haven’t spent much time there.

Wow

I’ll just say it. Wow.

I Want To Go Back…In The Winter!

More importantly, I think it is one of the best places to visit in the summer. So much so, I want to go back in the winter!

Not Big On Travelog Podcasts

Above all I am not one for travelog podcasts. Every bend in the highway is chronicled. Routes and places to stay talked about and so on.

The Routes

I can tell you about Wisconsin 77 connecting to Ashland County GG, and ultimately 77 all the way to Ironwood, Michigan.

Some Of The Campgrounds

Even more the Alpine Campground near Ironwood, or US 20 to US 41all the way to Marquette, Michigan. Then all the way across to Michigan 123 on down to the magnificent Mackinac Bridge.

But It’s The History That Gets Me

Then most importantly the great maritime towns along Michigan’s Lake Michigan coast from Petoskey to Charlavoix on down to Traverse City, Manistee and all the way to Ludington.

The SS Badger Is The Cherry On Top

Finally  the cherry on top for me was the four hour ferry ride on the SS Badger the only steam powered boat on the lake these days, and the last remaining rail ferry.

The Old Industrial Midwest

I am product of the old industrial Midwest.

Factories, Farms, Railroads, Mines and Lakes

My home is a heartland of factories and mines. I can’t forget the farms and train yards.

Won’t Forget Working Class History

I won’t forget the working class history here.

Still An Industrial Powerhouse

Likewise I have to point out this area remains one of the world’s most powerful industrial regions.

Travel Is All About Learning

To sum up what gets me about this kind of travel is the history.

Plenty of that in this podcast.

Hurricane-Hysteria-Creating-American-Dreamworld-Bob Davis Podcast 860

Real Damage In The Bahamas. A Dreamworld In The US

First of all this podcast is about media coverage. Hurricane Dorian did major damage in the Bahamas. After nearly two weeks of fear from media Dorian had little effect in the US. Learn more in Hurricane-Hysteria-Creating-American-Dreamworld-Bob Davis Podcast 860.

Speculation and Predictions

These days the mission of my podcast is to avoid predicting the future.

Outcomes Matter

Furthermore outcomes matter. Hurricane Dorian exposed how our media lies.

Shoddy Reporting

Moreover hurricane coverage exposed how they cover every story. Shoddy reporting. Predictions by so called experts. Breathless gossip. Dramatic scenes. No facts. Little perspective or context.

Stating The Obvious

In addition, seems like I’m stating the obvious. In Hurricane-Hysteria-Creating-American-Dreamworld-Bob Davis Podcast 860 I’ll tell you why it’s this way.

Public Nuisance

It’s especially relevant to say news coverage has become a public nuisance. Just ask those who evacuated only to learn it was a waste of their time and public resources.

Sharpie President

Moreover why is the President being attacked for his predictions of the storm’s path? Didn’t the media do exactly that for more than a week? Sharpie’s indeed.

Gossip

Seems like major media companies can’t afford real reporters. Also, no one trusts them. No one will talk to them. Certainly this is why they have nothing real to report.

US Achilles Heel

Finally I wonder what happens when there’s a real crisis. Consequently we must admit our advanced communications capability might turn out to be our Achilles Heel. Welcome to the American Dreamworld in this Walk and Talk Podcast.

Pole Shift Happening-Soon-Latest YouTube Craze-Bob Davis Podcast 796

2018 was the year for religious prophets to predict the end of the world and be wrong. Seems like 2019 is starting off with a bang. It’s all about a flip of the Earth’s magnetic poles these days. Up is Down. Down is Up! Learn more in Pole Shift Happening-Soon-Latest YouTube Craze-Bob Davis Podcast 796.

True North Ain’t True No More

Especially relevant is the movement of the magnetic North Pole from the arctic over Canada, toward Siberia. Our magnetic pole is moving so fast even NASA has put out emails noting the speed of the shift and its effect on your devices and GPS systems.

From Canada To Siberia

According to NASA the northern magnetic pole is racing away from Canada toward Siberia with ‘surprising acceleration’. While the magnetic poles normally ‘wobble’ around, this is unprecedented. Enter YouTube to save the day.

Disaster Porn

Suddenly YouTube is full of videos describing calamity and disaster. From Russia Today to the BBC and all points in between. Moreover it won’t be long until the mainstream cable networks and broadcast television get hold of this story and run with it. Step right up and get your disaster supplies right here!

cYouTube Goes Overboard Again

Due to intertest in moderately factual accounts of the magnetic pole movement YouTubers have gone overboard with all kinds of information and theories. As a result factual lines are getting blurred. Theory becomes immanent danger with warnings that the actual geographic north and south polls will follow the magnetic poles, and the earth’s rotational axis will ‘flip’.

Minneapolis and Saint Paul Will Be The New Miami!

Most noteworthy to Minnesotans is the prospect of Minnesota slipping down to the equator in a new orientation. Could this happen? Theoretically possible. Would we survive it? To go from 13 degrees to 93 degrees in one afternoon? All of us northerners would like to try!

Sleeping Psychics, Sumer and the Plastic Crust

Finally, who came up with these theories to begin with? From Edgar Cayce, “The Sleeping Psychic” to Immanuel Velikovsky and Zechariah Sitchin. In Pole Shift Happening-Soon-Latest YouTube Craze-Bob Davis Podcast 796 I tie it all together and you can decide.
