NMC020 Driving to Florida
Recorded: June 14, 2016
Location: On the Road: Alabama & Florida
Subject: Driving across country to move onto the boat.
Okay, I am not going to lie. Sometimes I wonder why the heck I have been working on this podcast for so long. I started recording episodes more than 5 years ago, before moving onto the s/v Dawn Treader was even on our family’s radar. About 3 years ago, I hired an editor to help me edit the recordings into iTunes and Stitcher-worthy episodes. Over the past several years I have been working with a team of people to refine the website and the posting process, to create transcripts and show notes, and to do so many other tasks related to this podcast. Throughout this process—like any creative type, I suppose—I frequently find myself filled with doubt over the value of what I am putting out into the world. But then, something suddenly breaks through the darkness of my own self-judgement and I am reminded of the light.
For me, this episode is that light breaking through.
Unlike most episodes here on New Mexi-Castaways which are recordings of my own voice as I process whatever is going on around me (which I affectionately refer to as, “Rosa Linda’s Ramblings”), this episode has several voices, as I interview my kids and our nanny (Miss Linda) while we drive across country. These recordings were done in Alabama and Florida from our very crowded Ford Expedition. This will be the first time you will hear from the kids about what they think of this adventure of moving onto a boat. As is frequently the case on this on-the-go-podcast, the audio quality isn’t perfect, but I hope it will still bring a smile as we finally make the move from New Mexicast to New Mexi-Castaways.
Have a great week everyone!
Lots of love,
