Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990

Nomad Relaunch Going West Next

Above all it has been a minute or two and now it’s time for a nomad relaunch to go west. Details in Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990.

Florida and Outer Banks

First of all, just returned from my trip to Florida and along the Outer Banks.

Podcast Avoidance

In addition I avoided doing a podcast for at least week.

Coming To The End Of Family Work

Most importantly we were coming to the end of our work here in Richmond related to family.

No More From The Driveway Podcasts

Secondly it did not feel right to me, doing another spate of podcasts from my mom’s driveway in Richmond.

Back On The Road

Consequently I made the decision to get back on the road.

Questions About Nomad Life

Meanwhile time for a podcast with some of the questions people keep asking me about my decision to go nomad

Future Travel

And some plans for future travels.

Normies With Questions

For example people wonder why I don’t “live somewhere” and travel for a few weeks and “come home”.

We’re Worried About You

Moreover I’ve been told people are “worried” about me.

Getting The Nomad Thing Explained

Finally it’s clear the so called normal world just doesn’t get the nomad thing.

No Half Million Dollar RV For Me

Certainly I did not sell a big house and buy a half million dollar RV. Nothing even close.

Actually Having Fun

However people I’ve met actually having fun are driving aged trucks in various states of disrepair.

Flight Of Fancy

Lots of flights of fancy in Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990 to clarify some of these ideas.

Pure Freedom Through Forever Travel

In the same vein there’s really nothing that compares to the feeling of pure freedom which is part of travel without having to come home, because you are home.

Are We Really Free?

In short I wonder whether we are truly free in this country.

Burdens

Burdened with debt.

Uncomfortable

Forced to work in situations we don’t feel comfortable in.

Restrictions

Restricted in one way or another these days.

We Can Drive If We Want To

In conclusion for the time being the one thing we can do is drive. See the country when, where and how we want.

I can’t wait to head back out.

Working-In-The-Texas-Oil-Patch-Bob Davis Podcast 919

Working In The Texas Oil Patch

First of all we need a break from all the bad news and heavy energy these days. Time to look up my friend Don Anger for Working-In-The-Texas-Oil-Patch-Bob Davis Podcast 919.

Journey To Working Man

Don’s journey from Twin Cities radio guy to oil patch working man is a great story. Even more, no matter how tough things get it doesn’t get Don down. He shows up.

Positive Attitude

Having a positive attitude is most noteworthy. Right now this guy is sleeping in his car and working fourteen hour days. What does he want to talk about?

Vikings and Van Halen

Favorite hometown teams and music.

That certainly sounds pretty good to me right now.

What Does Work Mean To You?

Don and I talk about what works means. Whether it’s bagging groceries, slinging hash or pulling oil out of the ground in a world gone crazy. We hit all the topics.

Road Warriors Unite

It’s especially relevant that both of us are road warriors. Anger lives in Arizona and spends three weeks in Texas in the fields, and heads home for six days off every month.

Moreover my crazy back road trips are legendary.

No Corona Talk Please

In Working-In-The-Texas-Oil-Patch-Bob Davis Podcast 919 you won’t hear any predictions about the pandemic, the economy, jabs at Trump, the Media or Democrats or whining about quarantines.

Why Bad Asses Love Solitude

Finally you will hear a couple of guys talking about our love of solitude, work, rock and roll, and Texas.

Texas!

Can I say it again? Texas!

A Break From The Madness

In conclusion, we all need a break every now and then from the madness. Hanging out with Don was my break this week.

What was yours?

Planning First Summer Road Trip-Storm Chasing-Podcast 632

Americans are allowing themselves to disregard most of the news they don’t agree with. Everything is ‘fake news’, unless it tells me what I want to hear. For those addicted, disengaging is nearly impossible. It’s important to realize in a concrete way, there is another world out there. There are many escapes. One of the best is travel. Time to prepare to head out in Planning First Summer Road Trip-Storm Chasing-Podcast 632.

Getting Ready

Planning the trip. The moment before the trip begins is almost as fun as the trip itself. Makes me recall getting ready for camping trips as a boy. Everything laid out on the floor for packing in the back pack. Calling friends and figuring out what everyone was bringing. What we would be cooking over the open fire.

Storm Chasing

This Memorial Day weekend I am Storm Chasing! Many things on this week’s check list. Getting Mobile Podcast Command checked out. Renewing my drivers license. Getting a haircut so I can do my You Tube videos. Loading in the sound board, microphones, the office stuff, and the food. Double and triple checking.

Into The Belly Of The Beast

Some of the underrated but fertile Tornado Chasing areas include Southeastern Iowa, Northeastern Kansas, Eastern Arkansas and Western Texas. Then the standard destinations for Storm Chasers. Oklahoma, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa. We will chase the storm chasers and get an idea of what this tribe is all about these days. In Planning First Summer Road Trip-Storm Chasing-Podcast 632.

Nature’s Summer Show

Storms are obviously bigger than all of us. Uncontrollable. Following these storms takes you through rural America. Two lane roads. Farm roads. Small towns across the Midwest and Mid South. Places made famous during the Bonnie and Clyde era. Places generally forgotten but magnificent in their own way.

It’s All About Anticipation

Join me planning the first three legs of this summer trip, with a hint of what is to come after. This isn’t a vacation. This is how the Bob Davis Podcasts works on the road. No talking heads. No one telling me what to think. Nothing but the open road, a clean windshield and fuel tanks full. (Editor’s Note: A few hours after posting this podcast I realized I referred to the movie ‘Twister‘ as ‘Tornado‘. What was I thinking? Maybe ‘Sharknado‘? LOL)
