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.

Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990

Nomad Relaunch Going West Next

Above all it has been a minute or two and now it’s time for a nomad relaunch to go west. Details in Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990.

Florida and Outer Banks

First of all, just returned from my trip to Florida and along the Outer Banks.

Podcast Avoidance

In addition I avoided doing a podcast for at least week.

Coming To The End Of Family Work

Most importantly we were coming to the end of our work here in Richmond related to family.

No More From The Driveway Podcasts

Secondly it did not feel right to me, doing another spate of podcasts from my mom’s driveway in Richmond.

Back On The Road

Consequently I made the decision to get back on the road.

Questions About Nomad Life

Meanwhile time for a podcast with some of the questions people keep asking me about my decision to go nomad

Future Travel

And some plans for future travels.

Normies With Questions

For example people wonder why I don’t “live somewhere” and travel for a few weeks and “come home”.

We’re Worried About You

Moreover I’ve been told people are “worried” about me.

Getting The Nomad Thing Explained

Finally it’s clear the so called normal world just doesn’t get the nomad thing.

No Half Million Dollar RV For Me

Certainly I did not sell a big house and buy a half million dollar RV. Nothing even close.

Actually Having Fun

However people I’ve met actually having fun are driving aged trucks in various states of disrepair.

Flight Of Fancy

Lots of flights of fancy in Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990 to clarify some of these ideas.

Pure Freedom Through Forever Travel

In the same vein there’s really nothing that compares to the feeling of pure freedom which is part of travel without having to come home, because you are home.

Are We Really Free?

In short I wonder whether we are truly free in this country.

Burdens

Burdened with debt.

Uncomfortable

Forced to work in situations we don’t feel comfortable in.

Restrictions

Restricted in one way or another these days.

We Can Drive If We Want To

In conclusion for the time being the one thing we can do is drive. See the country when, where and how we want.

I can’t wait to head back out.

Coronavirus-Madness-Hack-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 911

Coronavirus Madness Hack With Travel

These days it’s getting to the point where all this talk about Coronavirus is wearing me out. I thought, what’s a hack for all this stress? A podcast about travel. Here it is in Coronavirus-Madness-Hack-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 911.

Too Much Social Media and News

Moreover whether it’s social media or TV News sometimes it can be just a little bit too much.

It’s Madness

Time for a Madness Hack. Talk about back roads travel across the United States. Above all there are some great places to visit and experience in the United States. Since I just got a new road atlas, time to talk.

Back Roads Routes For Bug Out

Since I only travel on back roads these days, some of the discussion of routes and places might come in handy. You never know when you might have to bug out.

Freedom

Especially relevant is the word Freedom. The wide open feeling you get on a back road.

All Fifty States

In Coronavirus-Madness-Hack-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 911 I’ll go through all fifty of the states.

Alaska and New England

I’ve crisscrossed all these states many times. In contrast there are just a few states I’ve never been to. I’ll tell you about my plans for the New England coastal states, and Alaska.

RV Talk

Also we’ll talk a little but about RV’s. In contrast to Van Life people and some RV folks, I tend to cover a lot of ground. My RV needs might be a little more robust than hauling a trailer or driving a behemoth with three bedrooms. Even though are they are super cool.

Always More

Finally the more I talk about hitting the back roads the more places I remember I’ve been. I couldn’t possibly cover them all in one podcast. There’s always more when it comes to travel.

Travel Tips Too

From Alabama to Wyoming I’ve been there. I’ll share routes, locations and places to see. Plus some tips for making travel a little easier.

Take A Break From The Madness

Above all just doing this podcast made me feel a lot better. It’s double length just to make your break from the madness even more enjoyable.

(Editor’s Note: I absolutely forgot Hawaii. Can’t drive there. But, I really want to visit Hawaii too!)
