Pleasure and Pain In Nomad Life

First there’s pleasure and pain in nomad life. It’s not all joy, all the time. Learn more in Nomad-Life-Pleasure-Pain-Bob Davis Podcast 966.

Summer in November

Second we’re live in Virginia on a perfect summer like morning.

Living Life On The Road

So it’s time for an easy talker in a continuing report on living life on the road.

Best. Idea. Ever.

Certainly I am still sure getting rid of everything I owned and hitting the road is still the best idea I’ve ever had. For me!

Pure Bliss

Above all those moments considering my new found freedom are pure bliss.

And Some Pain

On the other hand making silly mistakes can end in a lot of pain.

What’s The Mission On The Road

These days I find myself thinking more deeply about the actual reason for my decision to hit the road.

Experienced Traveler

Most importantly I felt called in some way to do this. Certainly I’ve traveled a lot in the last few years. Sometimes for months at a time.

Life On The Road

So I am no stranger to life on the road.

Home?

On the other hand I always ‘had’ to come ‘home’.

Home Is Here. Now.

Now home is where I happen to be on any given day.

Freedom?

Many people i talk to yearn for that kind of freedom.

Reason For the Adventure

However for me, there has to be a reason for this adventure. Find out why I say this in Nomad-Life-Pleasure-Pain-Bob Davis Podcast 966.

What’s The Mission?

To sum up, this is an adventure. This is a mission. I’m just not quite sure what it is right now.

Finding It Together

In conclusion I guess I’d say we’ll find it together. In a sense that’s what these podcasts are all about…and that’s my pleasure!

Not to mention enjoying an endless summer this winter.

Dog-Fashion-Show-2-4-1-Bob Davis Podcast 906

First of all I came back from the mega road trip for a friend’s event in Minneapolis. Second back in the studio and sharing some final thoughts about the road trip. Check it out in Dog-Fashion-Show-2-4-1-Bob Davis Podcast 906.

These days no one talks about these events where people from all walks of life have interests that bring them together. I talk a lot about events like that in my podcasts.

So it was most noteworthy to attend an event that helps animals in need. In fact it was a surprise to find out I was going to have to emcee the event!

Even more coming back for this event made me think of all the places and experiences I had on a road trip that turned out to be much longer than I thought it was going to be. Learn more in Dog-Fashion-Show-2-4-1-Bob Davis Podcast 906.

Especially relevant? Coming away from these road trips in awe of how big this country actually is. Moreover the contrast between the smallness of social media and how diverse we Americans actually are!

In the second half of this podcast some final thoughts about broken politics. Especially relevant? Russian Trolls ‘influencing’ the 2020 election. Again.

I have to point out the glaring difference between what we appear to be on social media and how we really are.

Finally my critics on one side of the political spectrum can’t seem to understand why I covered ‘the democrats’ in Iowa. Seems like no one can bear to listen to something they might disagree with!

I tell the story of getting kicked out of a Mike Pence event versus being welcomed with open arms by the supposedly ‘horrible’ democrats. I’ll also tell you why I am sitting this election and future elections out.

TruckStop-Washday-Four-States-24hours-Bob Davis Podcast 905

Seven States

First of all after hitting seven states in less than three weeks, it’s time for a break. Learn more about my latest mega trip in TruckStop-Washday-Four-States-24hours-Bob Davis Podcast 905.

Questions About Travel

These days I am asked a lot of questions about my travels.

Food and Laundry

Certainly the best questions are about simple stuff. What do you eat? Where do you do your laundry? Is Mobile Podcast Command an RV?

Truck Stops

Let’s start with two friends of the traveler. WalMart and Truck Stops.

Pilot!

When it comes to Truck Stops I have my favorites. Flying J, Pilots, Loves and T/A’s. Even more, some of the truck stops with names I can’t remember are great. Pilot is my favorite.

Wash Day At The Truck Stop

In TruckStop-Washday-Four-States-24hours-Bob Davis Podcast 905 we spend wash day at the Pilot south of San Antonio, Texas. The music’s classic rock, the People’s Court is on TV and there’s a full range of stuff to look at.

Travel In An America You Don’t See On TV

In addition in this podcast I make some observations about travel in an America saturated with political ‘news’ coverage.

Stressed Drivers and Travelers Need Calm

In contrast at most of the truck stops there’s no CNN, or Fox News or talk radio. There’s country, and classic rock, and a generally calm atmosphere for stressed truckers and travelers.

Back On The Road

Fill up. Get Something to eat. Take a shower. Do some laundry. Back on the road.

24 Hours of Driving and Back To Minnesota

Four states in one day in this podcast. From San Antonio to Dover, Oklahoma, and then onto Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, to finally end in Minnesota on an unusual sunny and warm day in February.

Unsung Heroes

Here’s to the unsung heroes on the road. The drivers, the people at the Pilot, the WalMart, the guy in Oklahoma who stopped to talk to me about my T-shirt.

No Academy Awards Here

Especially relevant is the fact that none of these people will probably ever win an academy award, run for congress, or even make a speech beyond funerals or their kids’ birthday parties.

On The Job

Above all though, they’re back on the job every day. All across this vast country.

Real America

Finally it was a great relief to see real America after two weeks of speechifying and media coverage of politics in Iowa.
