Difficult Winter Calls For Summer Sounds Winter Relief

Firstly we are having a difficult winter and a Summer Sounds Winter Relief is the perfect antidote. Therefore headphones on for Summer-Sounds-Winter-Relief-Bob Davis Podcast 983.

No Talk

Secondly and perhaps most importantly I don’t talk much in this podcast.

Power Of Sound

Above all one of the things I’ve learned is sound has a lot of power.

Sounds Of Summer

For example and maybe the best example, the sound of summer.

Bugs and Storms

Certainly summer is loud. Bugs. Storms. Lawnmowers. People driving by with their radios up and the windows down. Boats. And birds!

Memory and Warmth Trigger Warning

However it is those sounds that trigger the best memories.

Winter Sucks

Especially in the depths of a terrible winter.

Deep Freeze

For instance ice storms, deep sub zero temperatures and snow storms. Seemingly everywhere in this country!

We Need Relief!

Meanwhile we all need relief.

Velvet Summer Sounds

Welcome to the velvet sounds of summer in Summer-Sounds-Winter-Relief-Bob Davis Podcast 983.

Headphones On

In short put your headphones on and turn it up.

Warm You Up

To clarify if you are cold, this will warm you up. Got the winter blues? This podcast will ease your pain.

Sound Does The Talking

Finally I concluded the best thing to do is to shut up. Podcasts are a talker’s game. But sometimes the sound does the talking.

Magnificent Midwestern Summer

As a result I spent last summer recording the sound of a magnificent Midwestern Summer.

Walk Through Summer

To sum up, now all you have to do is put headphones on and walk through that incredible summer.

Heat

The heat. Storms. All the things we associate with summer you can hear in Summer-Sounds-Winter-Relief-Bob Davis Podcast 983.

Sound Recording Geek

In the same vein listeners to these podcasts know I get around. As a nomad I get to record sound from where ever I go. I often can be seen with headphones on pointing a microphone in the direction of some interesting sound. Meanwhile, others are enjoying whatever is going on.

Experience

In conclusion to some degree I experience life through headphones.

Feel Better

Truth is, it made me feel better just to produce this podcast.

Summer’s Around The Corner

Summer’s around the corner, or at the tip of your fingers…and headphones.

Election2020-Iowa-City-Bernie-Sanders-Bob Davis Podcast 901

Series End With Bernie Sanders

First of all, this most noteworthy podcast series draws to a close with Bernie Sanders. Go inside one of this signature events in Election2020-Iowa-City-Bernie-Sanders-Bob Davis Podcast 901.

Running To Get Candidates On Record

Certainly it has not been easy to get all the remaining presidential hopefuls on the record in Iowa.

Michael Moore’s Mileage

Likewise for Michael Moore, one of Senator Sanders’ surrogates. Moore proudly touts putting ‘fifteen hundred miles’ on his car in the previous ten days.

Moore’s Got Nothing On Mobile Podcast Command

I got a good laugh out of Moore’s bragging. Mobile Podcast Command has easily added more than two thousand miles in less than a week. Even more on back roads in the winter.

Political Storm Chasing

There is a storm chasing quality about chasing several candidates running an expensive statewide race. All for a straw poll. A feature of hundreds of caucuses held across the state on Monday night, February 3rd.

Two For One

It’s especially relevant that this podcast is the only one of the series that features two events. Senator Sanders was stuck in Washington for the Clive, Iowa event. So, I hotfooted it further east to Iowa City, to get a full Sanders speech, up close and personal. Hear it in Election2020-Iowa-City-Bernie-Sanders-Bob Davis Podcast 901.

Feel The Bern

Finally you get the whole ‘Feel The Bern‘ experience in this podcast. A big event featuring live music, a slice of how the team uses these events to organize volunteers and canvassers and a profane rant by a screaming Michael Moore. Moore struggled to fire up a crowd waiting for the Senator.

All About Organizing

In conclusion there’s no question Senator Sanders’ candidacy has attracted an army of young devotees. The question is going to be whether organizing those supporters will deliver caucus goers.

Caucus In Fairfield

So, from Iowa City it’s on to a caucus in Fairfield, Iowa.

Backroad-Weather-Adventure-North Carolina-Bob Davis Podcast 880

Back To Minnesota

I am on the road heading back to Minnesota. These days the name of the game when it comes to back roads is avoiding the weather. It’s most noteworthy that I avoided the snow and ice. I did not avoid the rain. Learn more in Backroad-Weather-Adventure-North Carolina-Bob Davis Podcast 880.

My Radar And More Help For My Back Road Adventure

Especially relevant is an AP called ‘My Radar‘. Really helps to be able to track storms, so they can be avoided. Unlike summer storms, winter storms mean icy road conditions and that is no fun.

Weather Is More Important When Back Roading In Winter

Moreover since I am all about the back roads staying abreast of the weather situation, especially temperatures, is important.

Back Roads Are Fading? What?

What I have learned on this first leg of the trip home? First of all, back roads even in places like North Carolina are starting to fade. I’ve been talking about this on all the podcasts from this trip.

Growth Means Interstates

As a result of the growth in the South freeway systems we used to associate with big northern cities are becoming the norm here. Bottom line? If you want the back roads in some parts of the south you have to fight to stay on them.

Two Lane Roads And National Highway System

Even more this says something about the argument against big highway systems in general. The classic American two lane road is usually associated with the National Highway System built after World War One. I’ll explain in Backroad-Weather-Adventure-North Carolina-Bob Davis Podcast 880.

An Interstate Is Not A Back Road

Google ‘national highway system’ today, and you’ll get articles about the Interstate system. Decidedly not two lane roads. Consequently the highways people often associate with ‘back roads’ might just be Interstates that cut through less urban areas.

No More Cruise Control Please

Certainly for me it’s all about those two lane roads. And I do fight to stay on them. The scourge of freeway driving known as ‘cruise control’ makes driving on the Interstate a pain.

The Route South and West From Richmond Virginia

Finally, join me as I roll south through Virginia on the classic and perfect US 360, to US 29, on through Western North Carolina on the way to Chattanooga, Tennessee.
