Live From A Colorado Campsite To Talk About Ghosts

Firstly this podcast is live from a Colorado Campsite and we’re gonna talk about ghosts. Learn more in Colorado-Campsite-Ghosts-Bob Davis Podcast 1014.

Squeamish?

Secondly the only disclaimer I would offer is that some people are squeamish about these things.

And others don’t like the whole of idea of spirits in another realm able to show themselves to us, talk to us or even touch us.

Ghosts Of The American West

But if you can get past all that the fact is the American West is full of ghosts.

Strong Opinions

Most importantly because of the strong opinions surrounding this kind of thing I am not identifying the campsite we’re in, and I’ll call my interview subject ‘Bonnie’.

Colorado Is Haunted

Finally Colorado itself has many a haunted place.

‘Bonnie’ has been to most of those places and documented the existence of these entities over the years.

Know The Feeling

More importantly those of us who’ve spent any time camping out here know the feeling.

For example, you’ve gotten into an isolated campsite. Set your camp up. Got the fire going.

Something Doesn’t Feel Right

However something doesn’t feel right.

Spirits In The Natural World

Are there spirits in the national parks and forests?

‘Bonnie’ says yes.

How To Handle It

Even more she’ll tell us how to handle the feeling and what to do if you have an encounter.

They Can Touch Us?

Certainly the idea that a ghost can touch us threw me for a loop.

Visited By Loved Ones

Similarly ‘Bonnie’ says we’re often visited by loved ones who have passed. And she tells some great stories about her father’s attempts to let her know he’s there.

You Might See Them And Not Know

In addition what about ghosts that appear in a corporeal form? You may be seeing them and not even know it. We’ve got a story about that too.

To sum up most of my readers and listeners know how much I love the west.

It’s All A Land Of Enchantment

Even more I believe all of the west is a land of enchantment, not just New Mexico.

Native Americans Knew It Too

Certainly there’s plenty of Native American Lore dating back to the times before any Europeans came to this continent.

Spooky

In the same vein American Indians knew there were places across this land that could have been termed ‘spooky’ for one reason or another, and accepted the idea of ‘ghosts’.

Thanks In Order

In conclusion I want to personally thank two of the most interesting people I have met in my travels and visits to National Parks and US Forest Campgrounds.

Bay-State-Ocean-State-Bob Davis Podcast 1010

Bay State Ocean State

My friend Jack Casey joins the Bob Davis Podcast in Bay State Ocean State. Last in the series of podcasts about New England Travel in Bay-State-Ocean-State-Bob Davis Podcast 1010.

Loving New England

Most importantly I am surprised at how much I like New England.

From New York To Maine

Even more from Upstate New York to Maine it’s just been amazing.

Two Friends Get Together To Podcast

Consequently when I got together with friends in Massachusetts it’s natural we’d do a podcast.

Go Way Back

Firstly Jack and I go way back in the radio business.

First Rule Of Fight Club…

Secondly we don’t do what every other radio person does when they’re on a podcast.

We Don’t Talk About Fight Club

Talk about radio!

Growing Up In New England

To clarify Casey grew up in Rural Upstate New York and has spent many years living and working all over New England.

History And Telling Stories

As a result he knows his New England history and tells some great stories about growing up and working in some of the most storied places in the United States, let alone New England.

Industrial Revolution Tour In Reverse

As you know I’ve been heading east traveling across the areas most effected by the march of the Industrial Revolution, which began in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

Ocean State

After that we’re finally here in the Ocean State, where it all started.

Not All A Party

On the other hand the history of this region isn’t all balloons and birthday cake.

Dark History

That is to say there’s some terrible history in Rhode Island they’re trying to work through these days.

We’ll explain in Bay-State-Ocean-State-Bob Davis Podcast 1010.

And The Clams, Lobster and Ice Cream

Even more I am here to tell you the stories about the local full bellied clams, roadside Lobster and Ice Cream are all true.

Ate A Lot

Certainly I ate a lot during my visit. Foods I have not been eating since I’ve been on the protein diet.

Who Can Resist?

But who can resist baked beans and Italian sausage, a local staple. Lobster. Clams and Fries. Blueberry Pancakes and gallons of coffee.

Starving Myself Now

Finally now I am back on the road and starving myself!

History Is Everywhere

To sum up and in all seriousness. The history here really is everywhere.

Just driving through small towns becomes a huge education.

Going Back To The 1600’s

In conclusion it’s just hard to believe people settled out here in the mid to late 1600’s.

Factories and Mills In The Late 1700’s

Mills and factories started producing goods in the mid to late seventeen hundreds and early eighteen hundreds.

Twentieth Century Powerhouse

Furthermore by the twentieth century this part of the country was hitting on all eight cylinders, making all kinds of products for the world.

Family Stories

Jack’s got some family stories about working in the mills and the pride of work and place that was so important in this part of the country.

Nomads-Navigating-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1007

Nomads Navigating Change

Above all when it comes to nomads navigating change freedom on the road comes with a cost. Find out more in Nomads-Navigating-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1007.

Embracing Change

Firstly when I made the decision to downsize into a 2000 Ford E450 ambulance I was embracing change in a big way.

New Life

Secondly I found a new life on the road.

And I love it.

Letting Go Of Old Life Can Be Difficult

But these days I’m having to let go of parts of my old life.

Struggle With The Old and New

Even more most nomads I am sure struggle with the old and the new.

Business Networking

Case in point. My business networking group.

Video Conferencing Platforms

To clarify one of the great changes was the adoption of video conferencing software.

Mobile Tech Means Flexibility

Certainly platforms like Zoom provide digital nomads with tremendous cost effective flexibility.

For Some It’s A Struggle

However some companies and groups struggle to integrate video conferencing and remote work into their operations.

On The Beach

Therefore we nomads often find ourselves ‘on the beach’ when decisions are made to do away with remote work options and video conference platforms in the day to day.

Buh Bye

Consequently I will be saying goodbye to a business networking group I’ve come to depend on.

Easy Come Easy Go On The Road

In short some might say ‘easy come…easy go’.

Emotional Effects Of Decisions

The surprise for me, is the discovery of how emotionally I was effected by this development.

Never Question

Most importantly I have never questioned my decision to become a digital nomad and ply America’s back roads.

Never Look Back

Best decision I ever made.

Doesn’t Make It Easier

But that doesn’t make it any easier when you have to say goodbye to people you care about and have loved working with.

Nomads Deal With Change Issues

Finally I know all digital nomads deal with these kinds of issues.

Crossroads Opportunity

Even more we find crossroads like this a challenge and opportunity for growth.

Not Easy

Doesn’t make it any easier.

Communications and Connectivity

To sum up communications options and connectivity have never been better or easier.

My Mobile Internet Is Rad

To clarify I’m going to explain how my new mobile internet connection works flawlessly.

Better Mobile Tech Every Day

Therefore it’s too bad when groups and companies don’t realize mobile tech is getting better and better every day.
