Rest-In-Colorado-Bob Davis Podcast 1013

Finally At Rest In Colorado

Firstly after a lot of back roads travel I am at rest in Colorado. But it’s hard to catch my breath at ten thousand plus feet. Learn more in Rest-In-Colorado-Bob Davis Podcast 1013.

Busy On The Nomad Road

Secondly and seriously there’s a lot of work when you’re running your business and creating from the road as a nomad.

Love It

Of course I love it all.

Fatigued? Me?

Therefore it’s not always easy to know when I am fatigued.

Fun As Hell

More importantly taking the back roads and avoiding cities from the East Coast to Colorado while fun as hell wears a person out.

Ten Thousand Two Hundred Feet

Consequently I am ten thousand two hundred feet up in the Grand Mesa National Forest.

And it is Grand!

Singing Wind

Moreover if you listen to this podcast you’ll hear the wonderful singing wind up here.

Pine Forest

And we’ll take a walk through a pine forest.

Time To Unwind

In addition we’ll talk a little about how some nomads unwind.

Not always how I unwind!

A Little Different

On the other hand I would humbly submit I am a little different than most.

Covering A Lot Of Ground

That is to say I am covering a huge amount of ground.

Not Supposed To Get Tired

But I don’t expect to get tired.

Salmon And Steak

Finally I love this nomad life. It’s been steaks or salmon on the campfire every night at some beautiful places.

Seeing A United States You Don’t Hear About

Even more I am seeing a United States you don’t hear very much about these days.

Weird Rural America?

To clarify you hear how weird rural America is.

Vibrant And Exciting

But after days of driving between 60 and 35 through small and medium sized towns across this country I see a vibrant and even prosperous landscape.

Perfect Farms and Huge Ranches

From the perfect farms in Vermont and Indiana to the wide swaths of crops extending for miles across Nebraska and Western Colorado.

From Sea To Signing Sea

Literally from sea to shining sea.

Great Summer Travel For Me

In conclusion I wouldn’t change anything about this summer’s travel.

More To Come

And there’s much more to come.

Always Better Driving West

To sum up I always feel better when driving west.

Mountains!

And I love mountains.

Love This Nomad Life

After that I love this nomad life.

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.

Freedom-Summer-2021-Wisconsin-Bob Davis Podcast 1004

Freedom Summer 2021 Wisconsin

Most importantly Freedom Summer 2021 Wisconsin is about relaxation. I am live in this podcast lakeside and that is what’s in store in Freedom-Summer-2021-Wisconsin-Bob Davis Podcast 1004.

By The Lake

Sun down.

Fireworks Family and Fun

A front row seat to a world class fireworks display.

Restrictions Fade

Above all as the painful memories of Covid-19 restrictions fade it’s time to let go. For the time being.

Time To Let Go

Even more lots of people are letting go on lakes all over Wisconsin.

Experience and Memories

Firstly this gives me a chance to talk about the layers of experience and memories the last nine months of nomad life have brought.

Where To Next

Secondly an opportunity to think out loud on where to go next.

It’s Hot!

And it’s hot. I like that.

Transition Year For Us All

Certainly it has been a transition year for the Bob Davis Podcasts.

No More Politics

For instance the last political event I will cover was the Iowa Caucuses in February of this year.

All Over The United States

Subsequently I have literally been all over the United States.

To clarify I don’t remember every little route and place I’ve been.

As a result I often have to consult my maps and trip plans.

Layers of Memories and Feelings

However for Freedom-Summer-2021-Wisconsin-Bob Davis Podcast 1004 I choose to talk about how the memories of where I’ve been “layer” in.

Like a dream

For example, the Eastern Sierras. Or the undulating fields of still green wheat in Washington State and Idaho. The grasslands of North Dakota. The lonely back roads of South Dakota or the Oregon beaches.

Experience Is The Best Teacher

In addition the lessons I’ve learned from Wal Mart and Truck Stop parking lots to deserted National Forest Campgrounds.

All of it ‘layered’ in.

How Long Will You Do This Nomad Thing?

To sum up people keep asking me how long I’ll do the nomad thing.

Peeling An Onion

In short it’s like peeling an onion. Each layer is more and more interesting.

Zen Of Travel Is The Best

Above all feeling the zen of travel and adventure is amazing and so great, I can’t wait to get back out there.

Back Roads Rule

In conclusion, people still wonder whether I am lonely, scared, or tired of the back roads.

The True Glory Of America

But on this fourth of July I’d say the nomad way is the best way to discover this country in all it’s true glory.
