Master-Trekker-Dave Kiel-Bob Davis Podcast 1001

Master Trekker Dave ‘Glider’ Kiel

Above all Dave Kiel is more than a Master Trekker. Fifty years in the Sierras is a lot of experience. Find out why in Master-Trekker-Dave Kiel-Bob Davis Podcast 1001.

Rare Interview

Most importantly The Bob Davis Podcasts is not about interviews.

A Great Story And The Personality To Tell It

But every now and then I encounter someone with a story and the personality to tell it.

Eastern Sierra Story From A Master Trekker’s Perspective

Firstly I met Dave in the Eastern Sierras at a desert campsite.

Secondly once Dave and I started talking I grabbed my recorder.

A Life In These Mountains

Certainly spending most of your life in these mountains is worth a conversation.

Pacific Crest and John Muir

Even more hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and the John Muir more than once should cause any trekker to sit up and take notice.

More Than Trekking

However we talk about more than hiking or trekking.

Car Culture

For example Dave feels strongly about today’s ‘car culture’ and puts himself to the test by going nomad, without a car. Learn more in Master-Trekker-Dave Kiel-Bob Davis Podcast 1001.

Great Western Loop With No Car

That is to say Dave “Glider” Kiel is in the process of a great western loop trek using public transportation, the kindness of friends and his thumb.

Today’s Selfie Culture

In addition we talk about today’s trekkers and their quest make the fastest time hiking trails or grab a selfie and go home.

Getting Into Nature and Learning Skills

On the other hand Dave says, people want to get into nature. They want to see the sights and learn outdoor skills.

Decades On The Trail

In the same vein this is a person who possesses skills honed from decades on the trails and in the Sierras.

The Story

How he got where he is is a big part of the story.

Certainly Dave owns a vehicle. A very nice ‘little custom built camper’.

However he’s going car free on this thousands of mile trek to make a point.

Attached To The Desert

To sum up I love the west. Especially the desert. And these mountains are incredible.

Wide Range Of Experiences

Finally I certainly realize there’s a wide range of experiences you can have out here.

Learning

Learning something from someone who’s been part of this landscape for at least fifty years is one of them.

(Editor’s Note: In This podcast I refer to Dave as Dave GILDER Kiel. His nickname is in fact GLIDER. Sorry about that Dave! To find out how he got his name visit his blog by following the links above.)

Fishing Expedition Ends-Bob Davis Podcast 816

The Northwest Sportsman’s show is the backdrop for breaking news! Mueller’s big fishing expedition is over. We’ll talk about it in Fishing Expedition Ends-Bob Davis Podcast 816.

Attorney General’s Report of A Report

While the media melts down and the rest of the world yells at each other about the ‘details’ of four pages from the Attorney General. it’s time to vent.

A Political Minority Monopolizes Our Time For Nothing

These days it sure seems like we are at the mercy of political types. People who spend all day clicking on, watching and listening to any show doling out details Washington’s latest intrigue.

Real People Looking At Boats Seems Like A Good Idea

What a breath of fresh air to join Minnesotans at the Sportsman’s show. Fishing rods and reels. Rifle scopes. Resorts. Meat smokers and boats. Lots of boats. A rite of spring in these parts.

No CNN MSNBC or Fox Equals Bliss

Moreover not a single TV in the place tuned to CNN or Fox, or MSNBC and their incessant coverage of every scratch of Robert Mueller’s ass and Donald Trump’s anguished tweets in response. Or the bleating of the disappointed democrats. Or the “I told you so’s” from republicans.

All The Predictions Turn Out To Be Wrong

Especially relevant is our need to be delivered from the heroes of political news addicts, and their constant uninformed predictions.

Trump’s Revenge

Finally for now, President Trump can take a well deserved victory lap in the form of tweets and mass emails, or the next hour long press conference, In addition his supporters deserve a moment of bliss as for once their sworn enemies are left reaching or speechless.

Time For All The Politicians And Political Addicts To STFU

In conclusion it seems to me that our biggest problem is our fixation on the intrigues of the federal government in Washington, and our worthless politicians in state capitols, county commissioner offices and city hall.

Fishing Anyone?

Suddenly going fishing sounds like a pretty good idea.
