Answer-The-Call-Bob Davis Podcast 991

Hey! When Your Passion Calls Answer The Call

First of all I am so excited to be back on the road and answer the call. Life is short. When passion calls. Answer! Details in Answer-The-Call-Bob Davis Podcast 991.

Back Roads

Secondly I travel back roads unless there’s an emergency.

Amazing Two Lane Highways

ThereforeĀ in Answer-The-Call-Bob Davis Podcast 991 I also review amazing highways. This time I’ll look at some two lane options between western Virginia and south central Kentucky.

Life and Death

Most importantly if you follow the podcasts you know I’ve been dealing with the aftermath of my mom’s death.

Clarify

I mention this experience to clarify some key conclusions in this podcast.

Moving On

Certainly I don’t plan on belaboring this topic in coming podcasts.

Family Stuff Is Over

Above all I’ve been in Virginia for three months dealing with family stuff.

Back On The Road

As a result I was chafing at the bit to get back on the road.

Strong Passion

In addition the idea of following your passion feels very strong for me these days.

Answer The Call

Even more when your passion calls, answer the call.

Life Feels Long

In the same vein life feels like a long experience.

Vibe

Sometimes we wonder why we do anything at all. Especially when we aren’t vibing with it.

And of course we all have to do things we don’t want to do.

But I’m here to endorse the idea that doing something we don’t want to do for very long is not a good idea.

But Life Isn’t Long

Furthermore we don’t how long we have to create on this plane.

Geeked

Finally I am super Geeked about getting back out here.

Learn From The Road. A million things to talk about and a million more things to see and learn from.

More From The Road

So, more podcasts in the near future and more from the road.

Head West

Finally the plan is to head west with some visits here and there.

Ups and Downs

In conclusion following our passion isn’t without its ups and downs.

Smoothing It Out

However answering the call really does smooth out the good and bad days.

Here’s To…

Here’s to the sunny days, warm sun, and open road. And the Blue Ridge Parkway!

Inside-Virginia-Ice-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 982

Inside Virginia Ice Storm

Firstly while most of the country struggles with winter weather I am inside a Virginia Ice Storm. Ever wonder what it sounds like? Hear it in Inside-Virginia-Ice-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 982.

Stories From The Road

Secondly my rig Mobile Podcast Command has been through a lot. Time to share some stories as ice and branches fall all around me.

My Rig Is A Character Too

Above all my 2000 Ford Super Duty Ambulance is as a much a character in these podcasts as I am.

All About The Rig

In addition as a nomad I’ve learned it”s all about the rig.

A Name And A Story

And the rig has to have a name and a story. To hear the beginning click here.

Sound Of An Ice Storm

Most importantly as a Chicago native, I am fascinated with the sound of an ice storm.

Winter As A Way Of Life

Certainly Northern tier US States have more experience with winter weather.

Therefore clearing roads during snowstorms or getting power back on during an ice storm can be a challenge in the South.

Winter Not Part Of Virginia Lifestyle

In short severe winter weather is not a regular thing here in Virginia. In fact spring usually arrives in some form at the end of February!

Bitter Cold

I‘m used to the bitter cold of Chicago and the Twin Cities.

Mobile Podcast Command Loves Winter

In the same vein Mobile Podcast Command did its service as an ambulance in Wisconsin.

Desert Too

On the other hand Mobile Podcast Command has been through the heat of the desert, sand storms on the beaches. I’ll tell some stories in Inside-Virginia-Ice-Storm-Bob Davis Podcast 982.

Getting Stuck. Again.

Even more, I have been stuck at a political event during Iowa’s primaries. And stuck on the beach in Texas.

Through A Lot Together

Finally we’ve been through heavy rains and wind on the west coast and heavy snows on Wyoming mountain roads together.

Part Of The Adventure

In conclusion if we nomads love our rigs, it’s because they are as big a part of the adventure as we are.

Nashville-Broadway-Saturday-Night-Bob Davis Podcast 965

Nashville Broadway Saturday Night

What’s Nashville’s Broadway District like on a Saturday night? It’s something you have to hear to believe. I’ll take you there in Nashville-Broadway-Saturday-Night-Bob Davis Podcast 965.

Friends Out On Broadway

First of all every time I come to Tennessee I visit my friend John Holland and we do a podcast.

A Nomad Checks In On Music City

Second when John moved to Nashville and I went nomad, I knew I’d be visiting Music City at some point.

Riding And Podcasting

But rather than sit around and talk, we thought we’d take a ride through one of the top tourist attractions in Nashville and do a podcast.

So that’s the backdrop for Nashville-Broadway-Saturday-Night-Bob Davis Podcast 965.

Covid Concerns In Nashville

Above all there sure doesn’t seem to be much concern about Covid here! Thousands of people in the streets. Many of them wearing masks. Many not.

Certainly Broadway is a tourist attraction. However it is a lot of fun just to see so many people having so much fun.

Having Fun On Broadway

Party buses. Pedal Pubs. Bar band after bar band “turning it up to eleven” to compete with each other and the street musicians.

Stories Too

More importantly there’s a lot of stories in this podcast.

New City New Job

Moving to a new city for a new job. All the usual stories about Nashville’s real “down home” nice.

Further plenty to talk about when it comes to Tennessee’s lack of a state income tax and business friendly environment. The state is growing, of course. But Nashville is a major city these days.

Big Changes In Nashville

A big change from what it was like when I used to come through here on Family road trips.

Trump Country?

Of course everyone I know wants to know what it’s like in “Trump Country”.

Not So Fast

On the other hand Nashville is a more cosmopolitan place than it used to be. Meanwhile Tennessee itself of course votes ‘red’.

Finger On The Pulse

John Holland gives us his usual political run down. After spending years in Chattanooga, Tennessee and working in many of the south’s now burgeoning cities, he’s usually got his finger on the pulse.

Media Town

Finally the fact is, I was amazed at the number of people living in the Nashville Metro who work in media.

The music business, recording studios, film and video production, music itself and much more.

Finally it’s obvious from a trip through Broadway on a Saturday Night, Nashville loves to party.

The Real Nashville…Next Time

Even more I can’t wait to come back and see the real down home Nashville the locals know.

Music City works for me!
