Late summer means the Monsoon season out west and that means it’s time for some Monsoon Musings. In my case that means midnight between downpours. Up in the mountains in Monsoon-Musings-Bob Davis Podcast 1066.
Monsoons Are Not Created Equal
Firstly every year out here is different when it comes to the Monsoon.
Above all it seems like every afternoon the thunderheads come up and the downpours start.
However I am in Utah.
For example it doesn’t take much rain to produce flooding and a lot of mud.
In fact my campsite was flooded when I recorded Monsoon-Musings-Bob Davis Podcast 1066.
Stay On The Black Top
On the other hand that is why nomads avoid sandy and dirt roads this time of year and park on the black top.
But it’s a great time for reflections.
In addition I had a chance to scout the whole area for great campgrounds.
[Editor’s Note: Of course I called it King’s Crossing in the podcast!)
Dixie National Forest
To clarify this campground is about nine thousand feet up. When it rains there it’s cold.
Red Rock Road
Therefore I was happy to get back down to the desert near Red Rock.
To clarify there’s two takeaways from this podcast.
Desperation In The Truck Stops and Parking Lots
And Utah has services and plenty of room for broken down car dwellers.
Nomads Have A Dream
Secondly it’s been my experience that nomads have a dream.
In short we talk a lot about what one would need for the perfect off grid ‘cabin in the woods’.
My Heart Is On The Road
But on the other hand my heart is not in those discussions although I don’t mind having them over a fireside steak and a piping hot cup of coffee.
My Cabin In The Woods
In conclusion Mobile Podcast Command is my cabin in the woods, mountain or beach.
And I am very grateful to stay on the move.
