Nomad-Travel-Delta-Madness-The Bob Davis Podcast 1011

Nomad Travel During Delta Madness

Firstly Delta Madness rules back home but on the Nomad Travel beat it’s different. I’ll tell you how in Nomad-Travel-Delta-Madness-The Bob Davis Podcast 1011.

Not Political

Secondly this isn’t some political podcast about reading between the lines.

No Judgements

Even more no judgements on opinions.

About Energy

Above all nomads may perceive energy differently.

And Travel

Because of travel.

At The End Of Our Energy Reserves?

Moreover I hear we’re at the end of our energy reserves.

Back Roads Are Different

But on the back roads it’s different.

More Resolve

I feel more reserve and resolve.

Take this podcast’s setting for example.

Summer Night’s Love ‘Em

Hot summer night. Just after a storm.

Peak Bliss

In short the bliss of a peak summer night.

Calm

As a result maybe that’s why I am so calm.

Back Roads Small Towns Different Energy

On the other hand travel through small towns on back roads yields a different energy from the interstates and cities.

The Earth’s Vibration

For instance being able to actually hear the resonance of the Earth’s vibration.

Yeah, it’s a thing.

Intensity In The Cities

On the other hand coming back into urban environments where you can feel the intensity is a thing too.

Fear and Uncertainty Rule?

Never underestimate the impact of fear and uncertainty.

Hit The Road

As a result I know if you’ve hit the road permanently you understand what I mean.

Never More Sure

To sum up I’ve never been more sure being on the road like this is what I should be doing.

Only Just Begun

In addition it feels as though I have only just begun to scratch the surface.

So much more to learn.

And see.

Here’s To The North East Trip

In the same vein I look back on the big loop I’ve taken across the North East and realize what an incredible trip this has been.

Now Headed West

In conclusion I am headed west and ready for the next adventure.

Summer Night Sounds

And if you’re stuck in the city just the sound of the summer night is enough to bring some peace.

Above all I’ll keep going.

A Kind Of Madness

In short I do feel what we’re living through is a kind of madness.

The Road As Protection

But life on the road enables me to avoid being touched by that madness.

Meanwhile I really do hope it’s over soon.

Maine-Extreme-North-Down-East-Bob Davis Podcast 1009

Maine Extreme North Down East

Most importantly I am in Maine’s Extreme North heading all the way Down East and you can learn more about the trip in Maine-Extreme-North-Down-East-Bob Davis Podcast 1009.

It Was A Quick Tour Of The Northeast

Firstly I am taking what started out as a quick tour of the Northeast US.

Wanting To Spend More Time

Secondly I am finding myself wanting to spend more time here.

Three States

Above all there were three states I had ever been to despite all my travels.

Vermont. New Hampshire. Maine.

Southern New Hampshire Still To Come

To clarify haven’t spent much time in New Hampshire because I went through quickly on my way to Maine.

Days in Vermont and Maine

On the other hand I spent three days in Vermont and now an equal amount of time in Maine.

Massachusetts!

Of course I’ll be heading back through southern New Hampshire on the way Massachusetts.

Wild and Wonderful

Consequently while Vermont feels like a warm blanket Maine feels wild and wonderful.

Down East

I would think that certainly most people are most familiar with ‘Down East’.

Maine’s South Eastern Shore

Even more if they’re from the East Coast they’ve probably spent time on Maine’s South Eastern shores,

Origin Of Down East

However the origin of the term ‘Down East’ is a sailing term and only refers to geography secondarily.

Corrections Are In Order

Therefore I have to correct my own definition of the term in Maine-Extreme-North-Down-East-Bob Davis Podcast 1009.

Partial To Northern Maine

Finally I find myself partial to Northern Maine, up by the Canadian Border.

Moreover I am not sure why.

Maybe because every place I saw around the bend looked like a scene from a Stephen King novel.

Maine’s State Parks

Certainly Maine’s state parks are great.

Remote Regions

And Northern Maine features some of the most remote regions in the United States let alone the East Coast.

Extremes

Likewise it is hard to imagine a place more remote and extreme considering I am within driving distance of some of the most densely populated cities in the country.

History? We Got Your History!

Finally if it is history you’re looking for Maine has it in spades.

French Explorers and Extreme Weather

Native Americans, French Explorers, Colonial Wars, Early Settlements and Extreme Weather.

Down East Is Civilization

To sum up once you get ‘Down East’ you’ll see more of the colonial era villages Vermont is famous for.

Harbors and Ferries

Even more the harbors and ferries.

Acadia!

And don’t forget Acadia National Park which I did!

Leaving Something For The Next Visit

In conclusion it’s always good to leave some things undone on any tour through a state like Maine.

Because I’ll be back.

Pace Of Travel

In addition it’s always good to spend a little time in these podcasts talking about the pace of travel and the internal processes of a nomad.

Upstate-New-York-Great-Lakes-Bob Davis Podcast 1006

Upstate New York Great Lakes

First of all welcome to Upstate New York and the Great Lakes region. Above all the back roads on these shores are great. Learn more in Upstate-New-York-Great-Lakes-Bob Davis Podcast 1006.

Links For Travelers

Secondly while these are not purely travelogue podcasts I do make an effort on this blog to provide resources for travelers. Check out the links.

Heard The Stories

Above all I’ve heard all the stories about urban decay and the rust belt in Upstate New York.

Captivated

However as you drive along these lakes you’re captivated with the region.

History

Certainly the history. I’ll talk about some in Upstate-New-York-Great-Lakes-Bob Davis Podcast 1006.

In addition there’s a whole twentieth century story in this part of the Empire State.

Finally I am enjoying this ‘Industrial Revolution In Reverse’ part of the trip.

That is to say I am moving East against the path of the industrial revolution rather than west.

Small Towns and Lake Shores

But the small towns! Rivers! Lake Shores and more.

Moreover what happens when you get lost in cities like Rochester.

Getting The ‘Feel’

Meanwhile as I travel through this part of the country I can’t get over the feel of it.

Of course winter up here is cold. A lot of snow.

But in the summer and fall it comes alive.

History. Again.

Most importantly there’s so much history you could stop in almost any town.

Native American History. America’s Revolution. The war of 1812. Industrial development. Even more the growth of these great New York Cities.

To sum up I’d never been here before. I didn’t know what to expect.

From the wineries to the small towns Upstate is worth the trip.

Heading East

In conclusion I’m headed to the Adirondak Mountains and then east from there.

Three states I’ve Never Been

Vermont. New Hampshire. Maine.

Therefore I have a lot of driving to do and can’t stop at all these great places.

But I’ll Be Back!
