Inside Virginia Ice Storm

Firstly while most of the country struggles with winter weather I am inside a Virginia Ice Storm. Ever wonder what it sounds like? Hear it in Inside-Virginia-Ice-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 982.

Stories From The Road

Secondly my rig Mobile Podcast Command has been through a lot. Time to share some stories as ice and branches fall all around me.

My Rig Is A Character Too

Above all my 2000 Ford Super Duty Ambulance is as a much a character in these podcasts as I am.

All About The Rig

In addition as a nomad I’ve learned it”s all about the rig.

A Name And A Story

And the rig has to have a name and a story. To hear the beginning click here.

Sound Of An Ice Storm

Most importantly as a Chicago native, I am fascinated with the sound of an ice storm.

Winter As A Way Of Life

Certainly Northern tier US States have more experience with winter weather.

Therefore clearing roads during snowstorms or getting power back on during an ice storm can be a challenge in the South.

Winter Not Part Of Virginia Lifestyle

In short severe winter weather is not a regular thing here in Virginia. In fact spring usually arrives in some form at the end of February!

Bitter Cold

I‘m used to the bitter cold of Chicago and the Twin Cities.

Mobile Podcast Command Loves Winter

In the same vein Mobile Podcast Command did its service as an ambulance in Wisconsin.

Desert Too

On the other hand Mobile Podcast Command has been through the heat of the desert, sand storms on the beaches. I’ll tell some stories in Inside-Virginia-Ice-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 982.

Getting Stuck. Again.

Even more, I have been stuck at a political event during Iowa’s primaries. And stuck on the beach in Texas.

Through A Lot Together

Finally we’ve been through heavy rains and wind on the west coast and heavy snows on Wyoming mountain roads together.

Part Of The Adventure

In conclusion if we nomads love our rigs, it’s because they are as big a part of the adventure as we are.

Truck Stop Nomad Radio

Most importantly welcome to Truck Stop Nomad Radio! Spending a lot of time in truck stops these days. Getting some good shots of the ruins of twentieth century America out here in the South West. Learn more in Truck-Stop-Nomad-Radio-Bob Davis Podcast 972.

Suggestions and Support For Nomad Life

Certainly I get a lot of suggestions. And I welcome the support and interest in this nomad life effort.

Recent Suggestions

Firstly, one of recent suggestion was, get a camera in the truck. Just turn it on and record. That would be my ‘video’ channel. I appreciate the fact that people want to help and participate.

Secondly it just doesn’t work that way for me.

Nomad Life Is An Internal Process

For instance my experience is this is very much an internal process. I never knew how much noise my brain made until I decided to hit the road. Alone.

True Freedom

Even more once you give away everything you own and release the connection to place the potential to experience true freedom is there.

Your Mind Makes Noise

However the mind resists. Makes noise. Produces various reactions.

New Understanding

But until I hit the road permanently I never really fully understood.

Intensely Personal Experiences

In the same vein these are intensely personal experiences.

Personal Memories Too

As a result the memories are also personal. Although I work in the audio medium it’s very difficult to relate those internal processes, let alone produce videos about it.

A Challenging Time

Finally we’re living through a challenging time. I don’t feel it as much because I am mobile. But it’s there.

Planetary Conjunction

Above all on a date which marks the ending of the darkness and the beginning of the light, and a planetary conjunction to boot, I have some observations about that too!

Sights Smells Feelings

To sum up nomad life for me has been a jumbled collection of visual memories. Sights. Smells. Feelings.

Covering A Lot Of Ground

From Minnesota all the way through the middle of the country and deep south, to the deserts of the American Southwest.

Only Just Started

In short like life itself I’ve covered a lot of ground but it feels like I’ve only just started.

Secondly I had to stop and run down the final polls before this fiasco ends. Or not.

Nomad Mindset Engaged

Certainly I have a lot going on in my mind. Even more when traveling. Double it if you’re a nomad.

Easy To Make Dumb Mistakes

As a result there is always a point where it’s easy for me to make a dumb mistake.

Early In The Trip

Above all these mistakes happen early in the trip or when I am preoccupied.

The Green Pump

Firstly this particular mistake has to do with the green pump for diesel as opposed to gasoline. I’ll tell you more in Mistakes-Final Polls-Bob Davis Podcast 961.

Final State By State Polls

In addition after a major delay to address my mistake I have to do a final poll run down before the election on November 3rd.

Getting Extra In This Podcast

Consequently this podcast is a little extra. Longer. Some observations about life on the road and mistakes and a run down of the polls.

Pollsters and the Reporters Who Love Them

In the same vein you know how I feel about polling and media coverage this year. If you don’t click here.

Dangerous Predictions

Certainly people are taking liberties and making predictions polling should not be used for.

It’s All Been Worked Out

As a result many people are under the impression this has all been worked out.

Nothing Has Been Worked Out

In fact nothing has been worked out.

Pick A Direction

Finally you’ll learn in Dumb-Mistakes-Final Polls-Bob Davis Podcast 961 that Election 2020 can really go any number of directions.

Up Late

To sum up if you do watch election coverage on November 3rd you might be up late.

My Election Coverage Ends Where It Started

In conclusion it all started for me in 2020 in Iowa covering the caucus campaigns.

Fairfield Iowa

Therefore I will end my coverage of this insane election in Fairfield Iowa.
