Mount Rainier to Sioux Falls in 4 Days

Firstly I don’t like to travel this fast but I just rolled from Mount Rainier to Sioux Falls in 4days. Learn more in Mount-Rainier-Sioux-Falls-4Days-Bob Davis Podcast 1002.

Amazing

Secondly it was an amazing trip.

Game Changer In Sioux Falls

Most importantly I had a game changing business meeting in South Dakota that solved my connectivity problems in one fell swoop. In addition I’ll be telling you more about this fix in future podcasts.

Oregon Coast To Washington State

But it was a great trip up the Oregon Coast, to Washington’s Mount Rainier then across the Yakima Valley.

Idaho to Montana

Even more Idaho and Montana take the cake.

Grasslands

And the grasslands of North Dakota!

South Dakota In 100 Degree Heat

Finally the trip across South Dakota in one hundred degree heat was one for the books.

One Day to Minnesota and Wisconsin

Further still a quick one day trip across Minnesota to Wisconsin for Father’s Day 2021.

Fading Restrictions and Burgeoning Optimism Across America

Above all a trip across the northern tier of the United States at a time when Covid restrictions are beginning to face for the time being, and people seem more optimistic.

Record Visitors At The Parks

Certainly the national parks have record visitors and are packed while the National Forests and Bureau of Land Management campgrounds are deserted.

Lassen Mount Shasta and More

Moreover I was able to enjoy Lassen National Park and Mount Shasta before quite an adventure in the Rogue River Siskiyou National Forest in Oregon.

Logging roads, coast line, rain forests, arid valleys and more.

Back Roads Forever

To clarify I am struck by how much running across the country this way on back roads is similar to binge watching a series on HBO or Netflix at the height of the pandemic last year.

Travel Velocity

Certainly I wonder if I am one of the few nomads moving across the country at various levels of travel velocity, covering so much ground all on the back roads.

How Far and How Fast

To sum up I wonder how the rest of the my nomad friends listening and reading this blog travel. How far and how fast.

Running Fast Can Be Fun

In short I’ll say it again. I don’t like to travel this fast. It’s exhausting. But it can be fun as well.

In the same vein I hope listeners and subscribers enjoy some of the stories and experiences from this mega trip.

Plans Change

In addition I’ve changed my plans a bit, I think, for the rest of the summer.

Authentic Creativity and Nomad Travel

First of all authentic creativity and nomad travel go together. Secondly we’ll talk about it in depth in Authentic-Creativity-Nomad-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 989.

Authenticity

Most importantly while people value authenticity, there isn’t much of it around.

Thought Processes of Creating

Certainly I consider thought processes as a part of creating content.

Lots of Content

On the other hand there’s a lot of content on various platforms.

Not Genuine

Even more much of this content doesn’t seem genuine, creative or authentic.

No Time To Think and Dream

To clarify I don’t think content creators have enough time to think and dream.

Too Busy To Create!

In short many creators are too ‘busy’ to create.

Enter the nomad lifestyle.

Above all there’s no tether for the nomad. There’s no ‘coming home’. Because the nomad is home where ever he is.

The Zen Of Nomad Life

Moreover I’ve learned there is a zen to this life.

More Time Somehow

In the same vein there’s more time think and to think about what you’re thinking about!

In Depth

At least that is how I have experienced it. And, I talk about it in depth in Authentic-Creativity-Nomad-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 989.

Untethered

Finally there is something about the pace of ‘untethered‘ travel.

Whim Is Real

For example the ability to decide to go South or North, East or West depending on your whim.

Time Slows Down

In other words time does slow down. You are alone with your thoughts.

No Peace In Today’s Culture

To sum up sometimes it seems as though you can’t get a moment’s peace in our day to day culture.

Not Easy

For instance we’re always listening to watching something. Texting. Communicating. Stop and go traffic.

In addition it feels like most people are just irritated just about all the time.

Nothing Is Easy

Not A Care In The World

Likewise I have had some bad days traveling but for the most part it’s like I don’t have a care in the world.

Happy?

In short the other day someone asked me if I was happy.

“Happier than I have ever been”, I said.
