Buddy-Holly-West-Texas-History-Bob Davis Podcast 994

West Texas Buddy Holly History

Firstly there’s a lot of history in West Texas including Lubbock’s Buddy Holly Center. Nomad friend Don Anger joins me to talk about it all in Buddy-Holly-West-Texas-History-Bob Davis Podcast 994.

Still Heading West

I am certainly continuing my nomad travels, heading west.

West Texas

And there is no more West than West Texas.

Firstly as I move west the roadside markers slowly change from historic periods.

Secondly the wind.

Boom and Bust

In addition the boom and bust nature of Texas. Especially West Texas.

Therefore you come across whole towns that have been abandoned over the years.

Those Highways

Even more highways that seem to go on forever.

Music and History Collide

On the other hand Don is a music guy.

As a result Buddy-Holly-West-Texas-History-Bob Davis Podcast 994 is a nice balance between the two.

Unique Nature Of Texas

Most importantly I think we both realize the unique nature of an amazing place called Texas.

Influence Of Lubbock

In conclusion how interesting it is that someone who had so much influence hails from Lubbock Texas.

Twentieth Century Experience

To clarify this town in West Texas exemplifies the twentieth century experience in the west.

Ranching Oil Business

That is to say ranching, oil, rail roads, cowboys and grassroots business people.

Buddy Holly

Finally from road side markers and ghost towns to Buddy Holly.

A lot worth talking about.

There’s a Feeling You Get

Most importantly there’s a feeling you get out here. For example the sky. Wind. Heat.

In short something about this place calms me down.

All About Distance

Could be the distance from one destination to another. Might be the seemingly lonely places you pass through.

But you’ll never forget West Texas.

Hey! When Your Passion Calls Answer The Call

Back Roads

Secondly I travel back roads unless there’s an emergency.

Amazing Two Lane Highways

ThereforeĀ in Answer-The-Call-Bob Davis Podcast 991 I also review amazing highways. This time I’ll look at some two lane options between western Virginia and south central Kentucky.

Life and Death

Most importantly if you follow the podcasts you know I’ve been dealing with the aftermath of my mom’s death.

Clarify

I mention this experience to clarify some key conclusions in this podcast.

Moving On

Certainly I don’t plan on belaboring this topic in coming podcasts.

Family Stuff Is Over

Above all I’ve been in Virginia for three months dealing with family stuff.

Back On The Road

As a result I was chafing at the bit to get back on the road.

Strong Passion

In addition the idea of following your passion feels very strong for me these days.

Answer The Call

Even more when your passion calls, answer the call.

Life Feels Long

In the same vein life feels like a long experience.

Vibe

Sometimes we wonder why we do anything at all. Especially when we aren’t vibing with it.

And of course we all have to do things we don’t want to do.

But I’m here to endorse the idea that doing something we don’t want to do for very long is not a good idea.

But Life Isn’t Long

Furthermore we don’t how long we have to create on this plane.

Geeked

Finally I am super Geeked about getting back out here.

Learn From The Road. A million things to talk about and a million more things to see and learn from.

More From The Road

So, more podcasts in the near future and more from the road.

Head West

Finally the plan is to head west with some visits here and there.

Ups and Downs

In conclusion following our passion isn’t without its ups and downs.

Smoothing It Out

However answering the call really does smooth out the good and bad days.

Here’s To…

Here’s to the sunny days, warm sun, and open road. And the Blue Ridge Parkway!

Florida and Outer Banks

First of all, just returned from my trip to Florida and along the Outer Banks.

Podcast Avoidance

In addition I avoided doing a podcast for at least week.

Coming To The End Of Family Work

Most importantly we were coming to the end of our work here in Richmond related to family.

No More From The Driveway Podcasts

Secondly it did not feel right to me, doing another spate of podcasts from my mom’s driveway in Richmond.

Back On The Road

Consequently I made the decision to get back on the road.

Questions About Nomad Life

Meanwhile time for a podcast with some of the questions people keep asking me about my decision to go nomad

Future Travel

And some plans for future travels.

Normies With Questions

For example people wonder why I don’t “live somewhere” and travel for a few weeks and “come home”.

We’re Worried About You

Moreover I’ve been told people are “worried” about me.

Getting The Nomad Thing Explained

Finally it’s clear the so called normal world just doesn’t get the nomad thing.

No Half Million Dollar RV For Me

Certainly I did not sell a big house and buy a half million dollar RV. Nothing even close.

Actually Having Fun

However people I’ve met actually having fun are driving aged trucks in various states of disrepair.

Flight Of Fancy

Lots of flights of fancy in Nomad-Relaunch-Go-West-Bob Davis Podcast 990 to clarify some of these ideas.

Pure Freedom Through Forever Travel

In the same vein there’s really nothing that compares to the feeling of pure freedom which is part of travel without having to come home, because you are home.

Are We Really Free?

In short I wonder whether we are truly free in this country.

Burdens

Burdened with debt.

Uncomfortable

Forced to work in situations we don’t feel comfortable in.

Restrictions

Restricted in one way or another these days.

We Can Drive If We Want To

In conclusion for the time being the one thing we can do is drive. See the country when, where and how we want.

I can’t wait to head back out.
