Seven States On This Tour
People ask me what it’s like to roll through seven states in nine days. From Eastern Tennessee to the Ozarks in this podcast. Most noteworthy is a night drive. Summertime. Windows down. Join me in Back-Road-Night-Drive-Bliss-Bob Davis Podcast 842.
My big thing is ‘angling up’. Rolling out of Eastern Tennessee to Nashville, and then Northwest on US 70 West. Through the night.
All Back Roads
Especially relevant? All back roads and small towns. Some of them county roads and bad state roads. It’s late. A full moon. Warm and humid.
Going With The Flow. Nothing Else Matters
The theme for this podcast is the question of what’s it like to ‘go with the flow’. Sometimes you end up in a Walmart parking lot and sometimes you end up in a beautiful campsite with a fire already lit and plenty of wood.
Heading Northwest In Tennessee
From Atwood to Milan, Trenton to Dyersburg and Tiptonville it’s most noteworthy that I am visiting places in the Volunteer State I have never seen. Moreover I see the same development in some of the small towns visible in cities.
Most importantly people wonder what it is like to travel alone. First of all you have to be okay with single person travel. Moreover if you take someone with you, they have to be a good spur-of-the-moment traveler. Seems like the best things happen when you are just in the moment. This is not pin-point efficiency.

Major Lessons Learned
Above all every now and then there’s a miscalculation that takes you many miles off course. Travelers have to be okay with those kinds of outcomes. On this drive, a major miscalculation meant a major lesson learned. It’s all good though. Learn more in Back-Road-Night-Drive-Bliss-Bob Davis Podcast 842.
Covering A Lot of Space
Finally there are a lot of people out on the road today. Whether they’re doing the Van Life thing, or camping in one of the national or state parks every now and then, I don’t know too many who cover the space I do in a short time frame.
In conclusion at the end of this day of travel, I am convinced there are so many lessons learned on the back roads, this is what it’s all about. It really is true. Happiness is a clean windshield and a full tank of gas!
