Spring-Summer-Travel-Plans-Bob Davis Podcast 1086

Spring Summer Travel Plans 2023

Firstly it’s time to take a look at Spring and Summer Travel Plans. Time for a higher vibe in Spring-Summer-Travel-Plans-Bob Davis Podcast 1086.

Planning

Secondly I’ll talk a little about planning in particular in this podcast.

Southwestern Arizona

Certainly winter down in Southwestern Arizona isn’t like winter up north.

Wind and Chilly Nights

However the wind and chilly nights mean podcasting from the cozy confines of Mobile Podcast Command.

Pull Out The Maps

Above all it’s time to pull my dusty maps out.

Where and How

And to start thinking about the where and how for Spring and Summer Travel.

Playing It Safe

During these periods of high fuel prices many nomads have been playing it safe.

Hunkered Down

That is to say we’re hunkered down rather than barnstorming in order to save cash.

Hope

Meanwhile as fuel prices start to sink a little there’s hope for the future.

Ambitious Plans

In the same vein I have some pretty ambitious plans for this spring and summer’s travel.

Yes I Use Paper Maps

Most importantly I use paper maps.

Back Roads

Because I use back roads most of the time.

Save Money On Fuel

For example I’ve learned you can save money on fuel using back roads.

Plan and Navigate

But you have to know how to navigate and plan.

How To Start

As a result I usually start my planning by just looking at the maps and thinking about the best ways to go.

Greater Goals and Plans

In addition there are also greater goals and plans. I’ll devote some time to that discussion as well in Spring-Summer-Travel-Plans-Bob Davis Podcast 1086.

Where and When

After that I’ll get more specific about where to go and when.

What To Do

Even more what to do along the way.

Travel Jones

Finally we’re all getting the travel Jones.

Why Did I Hunker Down Again?

And it’s necessary every now and then to remember why we decided to hunker down in the first place.

Economic Conditions

I’ve done a few podcasts about economic conditions.

And where I think we’re headed.

I’ll be updating those as well progress into 2023.

Turn The Pages

But in the meantime it’s a lot of fun to turn the pages on these dusty maps shredded from use.

Warming Up Soon

To sum up it will be warming up in the Southwest soon and the rest of the country later.

Rubber Hits The Road

In short by then it will be time for the rubber to hit the road.

Can’t wait.

Not-Defending-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1081

Not Defending Nomad Life

Most importantly I am not defending nomad life in this podcast. Some people think that is what I do. My response is here in Not-Defending-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1081.

Constructive Criticism

Firstly I’ve learned once in a while you have to accept constructive criticism.

Secondly a friend recently said the podcasts make him sad because I defend nomad life too much.

Content Review

Therefore I reviewed my recent content.

And I couldn’t disagree more.

Introspective Podcast

Above all in this introspective podcast I talk about the nomad experience.

Perspective

However I put this life in perspective.

Variety

Furthermore in my review of content I concluded there’s enough variety.

Writing Project

In addition I talk about a writing project in Not-Defending-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1081.

Attention and Energy

Specifically writing about difficult subjects requires a great deal of attention and energy.

Top Of Mind

So the podcasts aren’t necessarily top of mind every day.

What Needs To Be Said

On the other hand there are few things I feel need to be said.

Complicated

To clarify I like complicated subjects.

As a result my podcasts about the current economy make me happy.

Even more recent podcasts about winter celebrations and their value to our humanity also make me happy.

Moreover there’s always content about life experience.

Examples Here

For example here, and here and here.

No Back Slapping

In short I don’t do back slapping inside humor types of podcasts

No Boring Interviews

Similarly my experience has been most people don’t make good interview subjects.

And so called experts usually regurgitate the stuff they say everywhere else.

No Experts

Finally The Bob Davis Podcasts are about my experiences and my internal reactions to those experiences.

Travel

Further the podcasts also include subject matter about my travels.

People Places and Things

That is to say people I’ve met, places I’ve been and things that have happened.

But fair criticism is accepted.

Once a Broadcaster Always A Broadcaster

To sum up I think former broadcasters tend to be more critical. It’s okay. It goes with the territory.

With-A-Grain-Of-Salt-Bob Davis Podcast 1073

Take It With A Grain Of Salt

Above all take it with a grain of salt. Lots of loose talk on almost every subject these days so let’s address it in With-A-Grain-Of-Salt-Bob Davis Podcast 1073.

Don’t Do This Very Often

Firstly I don’t often delve these deep into current events. Here’s why.

Can’t Ignore

On the other hand sometimes you can’t ignore whats going  on.

Nomads Feel It Too

Even more we nomads feel it too.

Loose Talk About Dangerous Things

Secondly the elephant in the room these days is loose talk about complex and dangerous subjects.

Grain Of Salt

Therefore I have decided to talk about it in With-A-Grain-Of-Salt-Bob Davis Podcast 1073.

But With A Lighter Touch

However my discussion of some subjects that could trigger some is with a lighter and more gauzy approach.

Not Going To Ruin The Vibe

Certainly I am not going to ruin the vibe with a lot of details and ‘positions’.

There’s too much of that.

YouTube

In the same vein I would imagine the number one source of information in Nomad Land is YouTube.

Not A Lot Of Fact Checking

As a result there’s not a lot of fact checking going on.

Doom Mongers Require Discussion

So when they start telling us about the chances of a nuclear war or a financial meltdown that requires clarification and a little but of discussion.

Difficult Time

Most importantly I don’t think anyone would argue we’re living through one of the most difficult times in the recent past.

Historically Difficult Time

Furthermore it may prove eventually to be one of the most difficult times for everyday people in history.

And yet life goes on.

Take It Lightly

To sum up With-A-Grain-Of-Salt-Bob Davis Podcast 1073 reminds us all to take what people say on social media and in media in general with a grain of salt.

Better Advice

Finally if things become more serious it’s even better advice.

Issues and Nomad Travel Don’t Always Go Together

In short I don’t often talk about issues like these in my nomad travel podcasts.

The Elephant In The Room

But every now and then you can’t ignore the so called elephant in the room.

And this is a pretty big elephant.
