#Vanlife-Rest-In-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1042

#Vanlife Rest In Peace?

Firstly could it be true that #Vanlife will rest in peace? Suddenly the negative tea on nomad life is building. Learn more in #Vanlife-Rest-In-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1042.

Beautiful Experience

Secondly I think the negative stories on #Vanlife hide an otherwise beautiful experience.

Nomad Life

Therefore in #Vanlife-Rest-In-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1042 I’ll explain why there is so much interest in the nomad life these days.

Not For Everyone

In addition I’ll explain why it might not be for everyone.

And that’s OK.

Different World

Most importantly our nomad life is not like life back in the world.

That is to say these two worlds are different worlds.

Don’t Bring Your Old Life Along

Even more attempting to be a full time nomad and bring your old life along can make things more difficult.

Media Doesn’t Like #Vanlife Anymore

Finally when social media takes to something like #Vanlife an impression is created.

Social Media Is Fake

Certainly I think anyone who thinks social media is an authentic representation of any experience or person is naive.

What Is Nomad Life Like?

But if you are interested in nomad life full time in a van, converted school bus or even an RV the biggest topic of interest seems to be how it actually is!

Eating Out Of Can?

For example the media seems to be obsessed with eating out of a can and going to the bathroom in a bucket.

Dirty

Writers also are certainly focused on whether or not nomads are dirty.

And further whether their rigs are a jumble of dirty clothes and candy wrappers.

Freedom And Community Is Real

Meanwhile my experience has been one of freedom and community.

Nomad Life Is Pretty Great

Above all I can’t think of too many negatives associated with the nomad life world.

Hit The Road

Seems like everyone these days wants to hit the road.

And I can’t blame them.

Push Back

To sum up we’re all seeing the beginnings of a push back on the nomad trend.

Love It

On the other hand to know it is to love it.

I’ll-Have-A-Casa Grande-Bob Davis Podcast 1018

I’ll Have A Casa Grande With Caramel Please

Above all it’s great to visit friends which is why I say I’ll have a Casa Grande! I’m in Casa Grande Arizona for this podcast with my friend Don Anger. Join us for some freewheeling conversation in I’ll-Have-A-Casa Grande-Bob Davis Podcast 1018.

Don Anger Joins The Bob Davis Podcast

Firstly I met Don in radio years ago. Now I am on the road and he is in the oil industry. We’ve done a few podcasts together.

Oil Patch Meets Nomad

Secondly Don shuttles back and forth between the oil patch in Midland Texas, and his home in Casa Grande Arizona.

Because I always said I’d visit him in Casa Grande, here we are.

We certainly do like doing podcasts together every now and then and as long as Don’s wife Stacy allows the microphones and other equipment on the back porch, we’re good.

Why Is There An Ambulance In My Driveway?

Even more hopefully she won’t ask why there is an ambulance in her driveway, but that’s another story.

Topical and Fun

Meanwhile when we do podcasts we’re often topical.

Current Events

So there’s some discussion of current events in I’ll-Have-A-Casa Grande-Bob Davis Podcast 1018.

Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito

For instance as I post this the whole country is talking about a missing young woman who has unfortunately been found deceased.

Person Of Interest

Even more her fiance is a person of interest in the case of the death of Gabby Petito.

Celebrities From Casa Grande?

Meanwhile we talk about the celebrities from Casa Grande.

Dealey Plaza

In addition Don recently made the pilgrimage to Dallas to tour Dealey Plaza, the site of the JFK assassination in 1963, so we’ll get into that issue as well.

#Vanlife Murders

Finally on a recent podcast I interviewed a young author who’s written #Vanlife Murders.

Current Van Life Story

Most importantly I am sure Taylor Cluster never expected the current Van Life story to be taking the country by storm. Her interview on the Bob Davis Podcasts is here.

Van Life and Williston

Even more Don started in the oil industry in Williston North Dakota. He feels there are some similarities between the current Van Life Nomad craze and the sudden concentration of oil workers in a small town more than ten years ago.

Mix Things Up

Finally listeners and subscribers know I like to mix things up.

Consequently it’s great to have a correspondent like Don Anger.

Pop Culture

To clarify Don is much more into pop culture than I am.

In addition he is very excited to talk about these subjects, so it’s a great mix for a podcast.

Visiting Friends

Most importantly it’s just great to visit friends every now and then.

(Editor’s Note: We talk at length in this podcast about a breaking news story. However Podcasting is not a breaking news medium. Of course it should go without saying, but it is necessary to point out that breaking news stories require constant updates. This can’t happen with this particular podcast. So if you want breaking updates on a breaking news story, this is not the place to get them. Suffice it to say it came up in freewheeling discussion and will be forever memorialized here, without updates.)

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.
