Welcome to The Hump! Podcast …. In episode 7 of The Hump! Podcast: We Be Landing Soon ….  hosts Brent Bowen and Chad Beland talk independent travel with their inaugural guest, Cathy Robinson — The Girl Who Goes (queen of independent, intentional travel).

Though Brent and Chad are both skeptics, the twenty-something travel blogger shares how going it alone on some independent travel has its advantages. And what the heck is intentional travel? Is that like not accidental travel?

Color the fellas a bit perplexed. But their first guest explains all and extols the wisdom of her traveling ways.

Along the way, she also offers some tips from her favorite destinations. She’s already ventured to 18 countries, including Europe (England and Spain multiple times), Iceland, Mexico, Thailand and 49 of our great U.S. states.

 So time for another episode … fasten your seat belts for Part 1 of the guys conversation with Cathy Robinson to see if independent travel is for you.

In Ep. 7 of The Hump! Podcast, Brent & Chad Talking Independent Travel … WE BE LANDING SOON

Cathy Robinson The Girl Who Goes on The Hump! Ep. 7

The two buddies who like to drink a lot of craft beer together, entertain their first guest and talk one of their favorite topics — travel.

But before sharing a pint with The Girl Who Goes, the fellas …

  • Sample beer from one of their wives’ favorite breweries — Oskar Blues out of Longmont, Colorado. Their beer of week is Oskar Blues Death by Coconut.
  • They provide their Toasts of The Week …
  • And chat about what they’ve been up to the last couple of weeks?
    • The fellas are getting there with old KC Tap Tour (Sadly. Season or Session 2 is now over)? Both of the guys (and THE WIVES) head out for a Sunday of the KC Tap Tour Season 2 “catch-up” consumption plan. And in the process, they enjoyed some not-so-serious bluegrass music from The Matchsellers at Stockyards Brewing Company. BTW … get your music on nearly every Sunday with bluegrass Stockyards. How about some intentional travel there.
    • Brent lauds the efficiency of the planning and friendliness of the volunteers at the Johnson County Recycling Extravaganza!
  • And geek on what are they looking forward to this week? 
    • A vision of seeing AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR multiple times! At least for Brent. Chad would rather they all STAY DEAD and not pull a John Snow.
    • And again … loving the contributions to Brent and Becca’s Up Next! series

This Week’s Topic — Independent Travel … With Cathy Robinson, The Girl Who Goes

  • In the guys first interview (our first who goes there podcast), the boys discuss:
    • How independent travel expert Cathy Robinson single-handedly took on the Mexican drug cartel.
    • What is independent travel anyway? And what is intentional travel?
    • Why independent travel can be a great deal of fun and rewarding experience?
    • A discussion on the ethics of riding Elephants in Thailand …
    • What to pack for independent travel and the importance of being able to survive two weeks solely with one backpack.
    • How Brent and Chad’s initial trips together included CB radios and making purchases on Yahoo.
    • How excited everyone is for the direct flights from Kansas City to Iceland and some fun things to do while there.
    • And to cap things off … they reflect on the warm and fuzzies of airline travel, i.e. some bad airline experiences …

And This Episode’s Game of “Triple D” …

To close out The Hump! Podcast … Brent and Chad play a quick round of Triple D.

What’s Triple D?

They throw out a scenario … and discuss whether it’s a DICK, DOUCHE or DUMBASS move. This episode’s Triple D move. And it’s travel-related at that:

This week’s Triple D move — What do you call … “Someone who cuts off people – jumping ahead rows – when exiting the plane?”

We discuss and debate on the show, but feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments (keep it clean folks, as they reserve the right to delete any personal attacks or defamatory information).
