Nomad Base Camp Los Angeles

Firstly greetings from nomad base camp Los Angeles. Where do nomads go for rest and refit across the country. I have some ideas in Nomad-Base Camp-Los Angeles-Bob Davis Podcast 998.

San Diego Mountains To The Beaches of Southern California

Secondly what would one of my travel nomad podcasts be without some details on my latest travel through the San Diego Mountains to Southern California.

Still Love The Desert

Certainly my time in the desert has convinced me to return as soon as possible.

Mountain View

But what a trip across the San Diego mountains in to the San Diego metro. (Editor’s note: I keep referring to this route as ‘522’ when in fact it’s S22. A county highways through the mountains and well worth the time)

Campsite On The Beach On Friday? Pure Comedy!

Moreover there’s some great stories in this podcast including my epic battle with flies at the Salton Sea.

It’s Always Something

In conclusion there aren’t too many nomads out here with brand new RV’s that don’t break down or have problems.

It’s always something.

Smoothing The Road

Subsequently having resources across the country can smooth the road considerably.

Go With The Flow

Above all there’s still a need to go with the flow.

All About The Experiences

When we push too hard we miss opportunities to have great experiences.

Enriching Life

Most importantly we miss out on developing great relationships that enrich our lives.

Sometimes in the most unlikely places.

Quit Your Bitching About California

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.

In addition though I talk about travel zen, reaching that state of bliss isn’t always as easy as I think it will be.

Ouachita National Forest

Finally I had to shift gears as I headed through the gorgeous Ouachita National Forest on my way to Dallas, Texas.

Short But Complex

In conclusion this is a short podcast about a complex issue.

Plans?

To sum up what happens when life doesn’t quite go the way we planned and expected?
