Finding Our Inspiration in Lancaster, California
www.destinationlancasterca.org57 MURALS and  counting!! Take the Mural tour! visit:  lancastermoah.org/antelope-valley-walls Just Northwest of Los Angeles, hidden in rolling hills, lies an unexpected and inspiring jewel, waiting to be discovered by you: Lancaster, California.Being artists and songwriters, we are always on the hunt for inspiration to give us new ideas, fresh perspectives, and interesting stories. Lancaster did not disappoint. And inspiration is waiting there for you, as well.Spring is the perfect time to visit Lancaster.  The drive from Los Angeles takes you through beautiful countryside, as the winter rains (yes, even in Southern California) give rise to happy hills of lush green grass and flowers. In the distance you can still see snow capped mountains and the windmills that lead you to Tehachapi. The enchanting drive calls you to explore. As you approach exit 162 for CA-14 North, the hills open to reveal the broad dessert valley that houses Lancaster, Antelope Valley. And like 19th century prospectors struck with gold fever, the dream of discovering this gem drew us in. We found inspiration in 3 major categories: Nature, Flight, and Art. We cover these areas in depth and share a story or two in this episoe. NATUREEnjoy the sunshine and beautiful scenery. Lancaster is full of inspiring and unique parks! Here are a few highlights: Prime Dessert Woodland Preserve is like a walk through living history. An easy trail and clearly marked paths take you through various segments of desert landscape. And, along the way, experience an infusion of local art as you sneak up on occasional animal sculptures spaced throughout this peaceful, tranquil experience. Spring is an ideal time to visit Lancaster and walk through fields of orange California poppies in the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve. In this California State Park, even purple and white flowers make an appearance.  In order to keep the fields in a strictly natural state, California State Parks does not water or stimulate the flowers. The park service also excludes sheep and cattle from grazing the hillsides. Up until the early 1970s, sheep once grazed the buttes in the western Antelope Valley.If you’re into really awesome geology, which I personally dig, you will find awesome sandstone formations just near Lancaster! Like The Devil’s Punchbowl with wonderful hikes, and even horse riding. And if you enjoy these sandstone formations, you can day trip from Lancaster and explore Vasquez Rocks Natural Area and Nature Center, and Red Rock Canon State Park, which has The Red Cliffs Trail.The Apollo Community Regional Park provides a scenic, peaceful walking area with multiple ponds filled with ducks and water fowl that seem eager to accept any stale bread you might bring along. Maybe bring a picnic and enjoy the picnic seating and save a crust from youThanks for your ongoing support!http://paypal.me/TheROAMiesAlexa and RoryThe ROAMiesPlease subscribe, rate and share our podcast!

North Pole, Alaska and Other Top Christmas Towns and Destinations
Inspired by Rory's Christmas Show for the City of Lake Charles, and our drive home through Newport, TX, We got inspired to dive into the cities that become known for their Christmas festivities. Wherever you live or ROAM, dive into what your area cities have to offer for the holidays. Events,  Markets and Decor all contribute to the magic of the season.For lights, decor and Christmas Markets, London; Budapest; Opatija  and Zagreb  in Croatia;  Vilnius, Lithuania; Salerno, Italy; Vienna, Austria; Gdansk, Poland; Durango, CO; Newport Beach, CA; Ljubljana, Slovenia; Prague Czech Republic; Funchal -Madeira Islands, Portugal; Edinburgh, Scotland; Malaga and Madrid Spain, Opryland Hotel in Nashville!San Antonio, Texasand especially......7.

Bethlehem, West BankVPN:The issue with connecting to any random internet network is that open connections are often vulnerable to cyber-attacks. For one, business and casual travelers alike have no choice but to use open and free networks when the occasion deems it necessary. Putting their devices on shared connection points means a higher risk of discovery by unsavory internet lurkers, with the threat of getting their data exploited or stolen. For those who like to work outside the confines of home or the office, VPN acts as a safeguard against open or semi-open networks like the free Wi-Fi provided by cafes, hotels, libraries and other public spaces.Some countries such as China and Indonesia have blocked popular online streaming sites, and content sites including Netflix and Hulu are region locked. If you would like to access geographically restricted content, VPN is the known key to the digital door.Browse fast & secure from over 90 global locationsStop hackers & other online threats from stealing your dataChange your IP address so you can stay safe onlineUse the internet with your favorite services & platforms Bypass geographic restrictions on websites for streaming audio and video.Save money and find better deals (more on this on our next episode).Binge stream media on Netflix and Hulu.Safeguard yourself from snooping on unsafe Wi-Fi networks.Protect yourself from being spied on.Here's a handful of highly rated companies to get you started shopping so you can see which VPN service is the best fit for you:ProtonVPNNordVPNThanks for your ongoing support!http://paypal.me/TheROAMiesAlexa and RoryThe ROAMiesPlease subscribe, rate and share our podcast!
