Road Trip With Me

First of all have you ever wondered what a road trip with me is all about? You’ll find out in Nomad-Ride-Along-Bob Davis Podcast 971.

Southwest Texas!

Secondly there are more than a few observations in this podcast about Southwest Texas and the travel so far.

Updates Every Hour

Most importantly the plan is to do a two to five minute update every hour as I travel.

Hit Play And Learn More

Finally when you hit play, the day compresses down to about half an hour. Check it out in Nomad-Ride-Along-Bob Davis Podcast 971.

Internal Processes

Moreover this process is often more internal than external. Now I understand why people take a sailboat around the world, alone.

Creative Spirit And Solitude

Even more it’s the solitude. Being alone ignites the creative spirit.

Ride With Me? Say What?

Therefore if you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to ride with me you can do it in this podcast.

From Brownsville to Laredo and Points West

Meanwhile I am transitioning from the Gulf Coast Beach Life to the drier desert air. From Brownsville to a place called Carrizo Springs, Texas. Way out here in the middle of nowhere. But we’re somewhere, right?

Borders, Walmart, Campgrounds and Motels

Even more you get an answer to questions like how close am I to the border? Is it true I got kicked out of a Walmart Parking Lot? When you’re just out there do you stay at campgrounds and motels?

Checkpoint Charlie

After that we get to go through a Border Patrol checkpoint. You have no choice. You have to go through it. Makes mask mandates look tame.

Stop?

A friend asked me yesterday why I was driving so much. Why not stop in these little places?

The Open Road

To sum up once I head west I crave the open road.

Full Days

Certainly my days are full. Travel. Work. Fueling. Stopping. Cleaning. Constantly.

Nomad Objectives and Schedules

In short I have a schedule and objectives in this nomad effort. I know it sounds weird but it’s true.

Be My Ride or Die

Be my Ride or Die and we’ll discover it together in Nomad-Ride-Along-Bob Davis Podcast 971.

Christmas 2017-New Year’s 2018-Getting Through-Road Ahead-Podcast 684

That time of year again. Christmas and Holiday pressure. End of Year Themes. Predictions. Maybe the best thing to do is to kick back and wait it out. In┬áChristmas 2017-New Year’s 2018-Getting Through-Road Ahead-Podcast 684.

It’s Christmas Season Already?

Hard to believe we’re nearing the end of another year. Just ahead of the big slow down between Christmas and New Year’s every year. The pressure is on though.┬áChristmas 2017-New Year’s 2018-Getting Through-Road Ahead-Podcast 684 is an opportunity to give ourselves permission to take a slow down.

Pressure Time Doesn’t Have To Be Pressure Time

These days with people wanting to visit, pressures of blended and non blended families and the normal pressures of life it can get pretty hectic. Moreover, many of us try to pack so many tasks into the mix, it feels like four months of living in about thirty days or less, between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

As a Guy This Is How I Roll

How do some people get through it. My excuse is, I’m a guy. I don’t do much aside from planning my yearly Chinese dinner out on Christmas Day, which few in the family want to come to. It’s a nice opportunity to hang with the younger generation including my son and my nephews, escaping what might termed lightly as ‘the madness’.

Breathe

Especially relevant is the sudden exhortation at the yoga studio for people to ‘take a breath’ and ‘slow down’. Amen to that! What do I want? Time. Time to do nothing. Back in the day, the people out on the plains mended their tools, drank egg coffee and pored over the seed and Sears catalogs to plan what they were going to plant, grow and hopefully harvest in the next year. Take a slow down with me in┬áChristmas 2017-New Year’s 2018-Getting Through-Road Ahead-Podcast 684.

Be A Kid

Then there are the endless predictions and prognostications from a media hell-bent-for-leather to predict the future. What’s going to happen. What happened last year, as though each year has earthshaking developments that will never be forgotten. No time to enjoy the present like we used to when we were kids.

Take Time Off If You Can

Especially relevant for me are the memories of trips to Florida when I was a kid. Getting up at 4AM, climbing into the way-back of the wagon. We couldn’t wait for the moment when you could feel the warmth against the windows. Listening to this podcast, you may find yourself in a reverie of your own memories when Christmas was a simpler time.
