Mount Rainier to Sioux Falls in 4 Days

Firstly I don’t like to travel this fast but I just rolled from Mount Rainier to Sioux Falls in 4days. Learn more in Mount-Rainier-Sioux-Falls-4Days-Bob Davis Podcast 1002.

Amazing

Secondly it was an amazing trip.

Game Changer In Sioux Falls

Most importantly I had a game changing business meeting in South Dakota that solved my connectivity problems in one fell swoop. In addition I’ll be telling you more about this fix in future podcasts.

Oregon Coast To Washington State

But it was a great trip up the Oregon Coast, to Washington’s Mount Rainier then across the Yakima Valley.

Idaho to Montana

Even more Idaho and Montana take the cake.

Grasslands

And the grasslands of North Dakota!

South Dakota In 100 Degree Heat

Finally the trip across South Dakota in one hundred degree heat was one for the books.

One Day to Minnesota and Wisconsin

Further still a quick one day trip across Minnesota to Wisconsin for Father’s Day 2021.

Fading Restrictions and Burgeoning Optimism Across America

Above all a trip across the northern tier of the United States at a time when Covid restrictions are beginning to face for the time being, and people seem more optimistic.

Record Visitors At The Parks

Certainly the national parks have record visitors and are packed while the National Forests and Bureau of Land Management campgrounds are deserted.

Lassen Mount Shasta and More

Moreover I was able to enjoy Lassen National Park and Mount Shasta before quite an adventure in the Rogue River Siskiyou National Forest in Oregon.

Logging roads, coast line, rain forests, arid valleys and more.

Back Roads Forever

To clarify I am struck by how much running across the country this way on back roads is similar to binge watching a series on HBO or Netflix at the height of the pandemic last year.

Travel Velocity

Certainly I wonder if I am one of the few nomads moving across the country at various levels of travel velocity, covering so much ground all on the back roads.

How Far and How Fast

To sum up I wonder how the rest of the my nomad friends listening and reading this blog travel. How far and how fast.

Running Fast Can Be Fun

In short I’ll say it again. I don’t like to travel this fast. It’s exhausting. But it can be fun as well.

In the same vein I hope listeners and subscribers enjoy some of the stories and experiences from this mega trip.

Plans Change

In addition I’ve changed my plans a bit, I think, for the rest of the summer.

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.

Summer-Dreamworld-Experience-2020-Bob Davis Podcast 942

Summer Dreamworld Experience 2020

Certainly a summer night feels like a dream. In addition it sure feels like we’re in a dreamworld these days. Learn more in Summer-Dreamworld-Experience-2020-Bob Davis Podcast 942.

Fleeting Thoughts

Secondly my thoughts about life today are often fleeting and disjointed.

You Are Not Alone

Most importantly I don’t think I am alone in this feeling.

Freewheeling Talk

Time for a freewheeling talk podcast about this moment in time. Summer, 2020.

Crazy? Maybe Not!

Moreover for me it sometimes feels like a dream. I know I am not crazy but sometimes I feel like I am!

Like A Dream

In the same vein it’s hard for all of us to make sense of things or figure out where things are going. So all of this leads to a sense of worry that isn’t. Feelings of fear that aren’t. Above all wanting to take action but not being quite sure what action to take.

Not Quite Able To Get There

For instance, when we dream we often have a sense of moving toward an objective but not being able to reach it.

Perfect Summer

On the other hand we in the upper Midwest are living through probably one of the best summers in years.

Past Summers During Crises

Finally in view of the economic situation one wonders whether people really understood what was happening in the early stages of the Great Depression back in the early 1930’s.

Losing Control

They experienced it all in color. Like a dream. Events moving forward they couldn’t predict or control.

Good News Too

To sum up friends have told me recently they’re done with the news. Done with social media. Tired of arguing. Consequently there’s a renewed focus on the things closest to them. Family. Friends. Themselves.

Talk It Out

In conclusion in Summer-Dreamworld-Experience-2020-Bob Davis Podcast 942, it’s good to just talk it out.

Calm Before The Storm

In short enjoy the calm before the storm, or the Dream, while it lasts.
