Radio on the Road
They build camps in remote, beautiful places. I’ve been on the road a lot this summer driving to some beautiful places to speak at camps. On the road I often drive along in silence with my prayers and thoughts. I love to listen to a good podcast on the road.
When I was a boy I loved radio, still do. Now we have “radio-on-demand”–podcasts. A good podcast is great company for a road-trip. I still aspire to build a good podcast. In the last few years I have been experimenting with my own.
Our son, Kyle has a friend named Drew DeVries who has created a fine podcast called Adventure Deficit. You may have noticed that there will never be a time short of the New Heaven and the New Earth to take all the adventures we would like to take, but you can read about them and you can watch them on TV and, especially when you are on the road, you can listen to adventures on podcasts.
One of the podcasts was about the North Country Tail, another was about a father-son cross-country motorbike adventure along the Rio Grande from Colorado to the Gulf of Mexico. They celebrated by fishing for shark in the Gulf of Mexico in baiting them in Kayaks. That episode was full of interesting stories.
Speaking of Father-Son Adventures
While we are talking about father’s, sons, and families, you might enjoy the Family Man podcast. It’s a realistic look at family and a reminder to cultivate strong family relationships. Check it out here.

Thanks for your “shout out” to Drew DeVries in his effort to spread the word through pod casts revolving around the need for adventure. He’s been chasing adventures for his entire life and it’s fun to see where he’s going by sharing great adventures of others.
