"Now is Kate Washington. She's the author of a new book called Already Toast. Care, Giving and Burn Out in America, Kate. Welcome to one, eh? Thank you for having me. You've been your husband's caregiver for the last six years. Tell us your story. Well, I was 42. My husband was 44 when he was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma. Our Children at the time were five and nine there 15 and 11 now, um we were not really expecting initially. The diagnosis to be a severe is it was we were originally told that it might be an indolent form. Of the cancer that might not need much treatment and might be just watching wait. But he had a kind of catastrophic event where a tumor in his lung burst and he was admitted to the hospital on an emergency basis. Had chemo a long course of hospitalizations and eventually a relapse, which led to a stem cell transplant with a lot of complications. He was hospitalized for more than four months. Due to a complication called graft versus host disease when he was Discharged from the hospital. He was on intravenous nutrition, mostly blind, unable to walk unattended and in need of 24 hour care. I was fortunate to have a lot of family help. In a lot of community support. We also were able to hire in home caregivers to help so I had a best case scenario and it was still incredibly grueling. He is now doing much better is much more independent. So I at this point, consider myself more of a care partner. Which sort of afforded me the time and space. You write the book, but it's still a journey that has left its mark on her marriage. When this first started, how equipped did you feel to take on this role financially, financially, physically mentally. Medically. We were fortunate to be well equipped financially and also to have great health insurance and benefits from his job, so We were more fortunate than most caregivers and ill family members. In that respect In terms of mentally I was not thinking of becoming a caregiver in my life at all. My Children were young. They were in elementary school. I was hoping to Kind of get back to more of my career is a freelance writer. And medically, the demands of caregiving came as a great shock to me. He was discharged from the hospital needing Ivy antibiotics, and I was really surprised to learn that I would be doing a medical task with very little training and I think that's a common Surprise for many caregivers, the intensity of the care that is required to be given at home and that falls on family caregivers. What's been the toll on your mental health and on your husband's mental health. It's been really challenging it. We're definitely doing better now. It was really all consuming during the most intense years. In my case of caring for a spouse. All care. Getting situations, of course, are different for me. As a spouse, you lose your primary support person. That kind of it the time you need the most, so that was a Really difficult situation for me. Um I know their role reversal, concerns with Children carrying for parents and similar similar issues in many kinds of caregiving situations. The intensity and the need to juggle caring for young Children and carry on with all the other details of our lives really left me stressed and burnt out and That's why I moved toward writing the book because it seemed like such a hidden problem that was more common than anybody is really realizing You talk about burnout, and I know we discussed the You know the medical services that you may have access to or you said you had some family support. But what were the part of this experience that You felt remained hidden. And maybe there just wasn't enough support around. I do think the medical the medical demands. Were an issue that Really struck me The fact that there's not insurance coverage by and large for home health aides, you know when my husband came home from the hospital after his stem cell transplant, his physician Told me directly that he needed 24 hour care that he couldn't be left alone. Even for a moment. And of course, that's completely impossible for one person to provide or even a few family members, and I said, You know, I Have Children who have to go to school. I have other demands in my life, and he said, Well, usually family steps in and it works out fine. And you know, our our family had already been stepping in and was giving all they could and the demands of Brad's care. My husband, Brad, were Just going to be too high. And I think that before going into it, a lot of people would assume that there would be insurance coverage for the medical needs of that kind of 24 hour supervision or more assistance than I found was available for The higher level tasks of care and such a Assumptions on the part of the medical system were a real surprised me. And I think come as a surprise to a lot of caregivers were talking to Kate Washington. She's a caregiver or what was the term you used now, Kate, I think of it now is a care partner because my husband manages much more of his own Karen very fortunate in that regard. So Kate is a care partner and the author of already toast, Care giving and burn out in America, and I want To bring another voice into the conversation. Dr. Jason Carlisle wish he's a physician in the co director of the Pen Memory Center at the University of Pennsylvania. He's also the author of the Problem of Alzheimers, How science, Culture and Politics turned a rare disease into a crisis. And what we can do about it. Dr. Carlo Wish welcome. Hi Jen close to be on one it so tens of millions of people are.

"Cheryl. Architect Can this morning news Bajor border with that? You're gonna be talking to Brad care here in just a few. ABC News Crime and Terrorism analyst says the Department of Homeland Security now issue then advisory of AH hype threats by anti government delicious white supremacist conspiracy theory groups. And others. You know, the others don't really get mentioned a lot. But there's a lot of having being done in the state of Washington and the state of Oregon by people who don't identify themselves. With those some of these other groups as well, and the mob mentality is really, really kind of gone cuckoo for cocoa puffs. Scotty likes to say At times we now it's got it was just tell me Willy while you were delivering our news that now we have another police officer who has committed suicide after responding to the attack on the Capitol on January 6. His name is Jeffrey Smith. From the Metropolitan Police Department. Um Where would you know Which Metropolitan Police Department we have here. Scottie was this was this They're in the capital. And I would assume it would be the D C. Metro police. Yeah, because it doesn't. It doesn't for that. I'm reading from the hill. On, according to the police chief, Robert Conte. He identified Officer Smith, he says This is a very sad day and tragic situation forced the apparently this occurred on the 15th. Of January when the officer did this and you know you look at And you look at the the violence that we've had in our own city, and you look at throughout the rest of our country, and now there's you know, you got the homeland security warnings and everything else. I saw where the Netherlands which is like what number six and happiness on the planet. They're basically having what's the tab is a civil war by some of their own there because of covert 19 curfews. Protesters in the Netherlands set the fires, looted stores and fought with cops for a third consecutive night of writing there after a strict curfew, um, was occurring with the mayor warning that the nation was on our way to civil war. That's why I never take a lot of stock when they come out with these happiness studies having lived over there for a while, Never okay. I'm totally happy. Trust me. They had other countries have their own issues just like we do. You just never hear about him and And it doesn't surprise me. There were some differences and just about every and you're going to see more of this, And this is what When we had Gerald Celente out about five years ago, he said. Same thing. He predicted Civil war here in the U. S. And I remember after a couple interviews we had with remember people calling up. I got a couple e mails. People is like, Why do you have that crackpot on And I think that's because that's what he does, and he's a trend forecaster. And, you know, he predicted there would be civil war here in the U. S, if not around the world, So you know it's it's not uncommon. The Dutch prime minister Mark route condemned the unacceptable revotes, saying most of the nation regarded him with horror and says this has nothing to do with pro testing or fighting.

"So idea was to provide a safe normal sort of experience for people who were on hard times and so. That's why we called it the store because we wanted normal like they could say to their kids. We're just going to the store And and the idea is to have people come in and shop and in a community safe you know sort of community grocery store and that their kids could see their parents in a position of power making choices for the family but we open two weeks before the tornadoes hit nashville in march in march and then end so immediately sort of pivoted to emerge like disaster relief. Of course the pandemic happened and we didn't feel like it was safe to our doors open to people coming in with volunteers. We just wanted to regulate a little bit more so we pivoted and now we're doing Delivery service to homebound seniors and and curbside pickup. So we do have an and there are still some choices people can make but unfortunately it's not like what we originally envisioned but we'll we'll get back there. Why do you and brad care about this. Why was this the thing. Because i know you also talk a lot about alzheimer's and that really important to you as well. I y is food insecurity important to you. We were really inspired by organization called unity shop that we saw in santa barbara that the same thing and so we kind of copied that model and developed it into our own but we were really inspired by that model. It was a place that we took our kids over thanksgiving. Yeah one year when we wanted to just do more service and and we loved the way that we were all welcomed as volunteers and they showed. They taught us skills that are useful like that. My kids were suddenly packing beans and stacking on the shelves and checking people out and at the at the checkout counter and and it felt like there was the margins were being erased. I saw this woman in the aisle who is Pushing a cart and she saw my kids at the register. And she said oh. I used to bring my kids here. When when they were younger she used to bring her kids to unity shop to volunteer and now she was needing the service and there was no shame in her telling me that it was sort of like all of us. Come on hard time. Some some have harder times than others. And we're all here free each other and we're you're just in a different stage in life than you were then and you'll be back on your feet again and we're partnering with belmont ministries service a partnership with my university. Because i know that hunger is a multi-faceted problem especially in the edge hill neighborhood where we are there. A lot of issues that have led to someone not being able to have enough food so the ministry center is right next door and they are and they've had to curb what they offer now as well because the pandemic but they do offer like music therapy and then they offer legal services and things like that. So it's a great a great partnership there. And i just think the dignity. The way are doing it with such dignity where people are shopping like they aren't they. You know there are times where especially during natural disasters where you see a table and the people can just get a jug of water and a can of soup and that makes total sense at the everyday life of what you're offering. It just seems like such an answer. I want to tell you something embarrassing. And you can tell me why it's what to do with it There are times when i think about volunteering yet. I think i feel embarrassed to be the one who is on this side of it. And i feel embarrassed that i'm the person looking in the eyes when i'm handing them. The groceries looks just like me or we look like we could have been in high school together. Or how do we get over that weird. I i can't imagine on the only human ever felt that maybe and you can be like anne. It's a you probably well. That's the honest and thank you for sharing. I'm sure you're not alone in feeling that i would say. Give it a try. You know what. I felt when. I'm when i volunteered is that there's a wonderful connection. That's that's there and actually. It's something that i didn't feel growing up when my mom used to deliver meals on wheels and we go to a food pantry and we dole out like peas and mashed potatoes on asking and i always felt resentment from people that we were giving food to a lot of resentment and anger and that was surprising. But i think. I think it's that dignity piece. So that's what we're trying to get around with. The store is the store. I wanted to feel more like we're all in it together. Yeah you know and you are dignified when you show up here and you're making choices and you are empowered. So there's i don't feel that kind of embarrassment. Yeah it feels more normal business you know. Yeah i love that field so in in all of our communities are listening. How do we even find where the need is. How do we step into this. If we're able to i would. Yeah i would definitely go to the local places in your area where you are and and the local feeding america's fantastic across the country and they have a lot of opportunities to volunteer to back packs. And things like that that you can go with your kids. It's something i just love doing with my boys and then the store we will have more volunteer opportunities. There are a lot of onto al but we'll have more once. The pandemic.

"Backto eight. Eric Jones and Joey Logano. Alex. That's a look at the top 10 with 22. Go next time. Bye. Yeah, And there are 20 while you mentioned that 22 go next time buy we looked down to see Brad cares last come to pit road. Why don't we add Brad Kozlowski? To a report brought to you by O'Reilly Autoparts on when we might expect these teams to come to pit lane Winston Kelly. Well, let's start read his last. His crew completes a four tire. Her is completing a four tire stop, and they can go the rest of the way. Your own lap number 44. You do the math. They can stay out till about Latin number 50 on a typical road course weekend. One of the things that will see it Watkins Planet Sonoma. When that fuel window opens up, you try to be the 1st 1 to come down pit road. So if a caution comes at you, Khun Cycle Iran, but the wild card in this is there is whether in and around the area, But as we say that we're starting to see some movement down here. Not a lot of it, but put on gloves. Oh, not helmets. Always put gloves on, including that of leader Chase Elliott. So the answer is it could be any time now. They could go all the way easily to about Latin number 50 maybe a couple of laps. More than that. No need to push it here Because if you run out of fuel, you are dead in the water so anytime between now and last number 50 look for the leaders to come down Pit road Speed Post talked about the different strategies Joey Logano on the different strategy, and he is going to need to come to pit road. This time they're doing the two stop strategy. Paul Wolf atop the pit box. All in his driver down. So while we wait for Joey Logano, do you want to give a really good recovery for Kyle Busch? Remember on the early labs? This thing he flat spotted attire and when I say he flat spotted that he had it all the way down to the cords. It's amazing. You didn't Waller or get off the course our end of entire Berries or anything.

"Hi I'm Matt and I'm Brad. This is Park Land Area and today we're talking with our researcher Jacqueline Shields about ecology. So right before the break you asked us what to elements Dr Ecology you left. Us dumped because we're trying to retain this and really really packed in well. I mean they give you a hint and they bet you're gonNA guess what they are like the next fifteen seconds. Oh perfect. Let's take a really extreme place leg. The Mojave Desert Death Valley National Park is have you ever driven through Death Valley Driven to Death Valley but my pre deployment training took place in twenty nine palms and California also known as the stumps. Oh well what do you think of when you think of twenty nine palms or Death Valley National Park Hot exactly? You basically just cracked half the college so temperature right Because animals and plant have biological requirements mostly having to do with enzymes that act as catalysts that their bodies were never underestimate the power of chemistry. Y'All these enzymes only work within a set range of temperatures so the chemical reactions that make an American pike as bodywork crap out like when the temperature gets above seventy degrees Fahrenheit Other animals like grizzly bears in yellowstone. Don't have internal chemistry that functions. That will in the cold so the pack on the pounds during the summer to insulate them and then they find a nice warm place to hibernate over the winter So you'll notice that most of the biodiversity in the world so by divers means that most of the different types of living things on this planet and live in one place which is the tropical places on the equator. And that's because the tropic. Stay Nice and warm. It's a good temperature for most plant. An animal enzymes to function. Well what do you think the other element that drives an ecosystem is well if we're talking about a desert like death valley which is really hot but it's also really dry that's exactly right? Water and temperature are the two main things that decide what type of ecosystem is going to be in a particular place So the water situation also has to do with chemistry actually because plants are at the base of basically every food chain on the entire planet and because plants require both sunlight and water to foot a synthesize. That's where they make their own food. Exactly see I paid attention in school. Yeah I mean animals need water to make ATP and so do plants Atp is a enzyme found in all living things that carries energy around on ourselves so biomass with very little water like the Desert and the Tundra. The plants will be smaller and fewer and farther between And as a result so well the animals so what about Mike Rainforest type environments like Olympic National Park? Well Olympic national park has a temperate rainforest. So you're going to have like lower temperatures than you would like an Amazon rainforest. Amazon is real warm and Olympic National Park has like a whole like plenty of water so a lot of animals plants and fungi. Kinds of things are going to want to live there. But not quite as many as like around the Equator Gajah There's not enough room in the tropical rainforest for all the animals and plants to their so organisms. Adapt to the place where there's some space open and the crazy thing about this planet is. There's literally something living in almost every nook and cranny on this planet I think that there's one place that there was a paper. That just came out. That there is a geothermal spring in Ethiopia that they couldn't find anything not even little extrema file microorganisms If you think about the way that our planet life on the planet evolves like it was a pretty crappy place to live for a really long time so you know like things are good at living all sorts of places like even in yellowstone those like crazy in that crazy volcanic environment is just like seeing. That are living everywhere. Yeah well that's crazy And speaking of you'll notice when you look at a globe that three fourths of the planet is covered with salty. Water Do you really don't WanNa live there. But some things do Since water availability is an issue and ocean marine bio GMS differ and things like temperature pressure oxygen content late availability. All kinds of things like that But waters generally a problem for them while so basically that's ecology insert shrugging Emoji for me. That's a lot to go for. I mean that was just like go.

"My favorite all right now. Is that time of the episode where we share with each other our favorite parts of Biscayne National Park. We haven't told each other our answers so it's all surprise Matt. What was your favorite thing to do here? Well I think it is pretty hard to beat snorkeling especially for someone like me. Who's terrified of that type of thing or who was terrified? My entire life that thing in this setting so it was not only really fun but it has another level of meaning to me to do that and jump off a boat and how. I was so pleasantly surprised by how quickly everything can clicked into place and I instantly thought calm and excited and just like yes. This is wonderful and I can just do this all day do this. Time and again and it was mesmerizing. So I would say that was my favorite thing absolutely I one hundred and ten percent times a million agree because when you just jump in that water and you get into it for your first time. They're just in it. You're it's like you're in a movie it's like you're in in this beautiful beautiful experience like experiencing wildlife for the first time and you can see all happening in front of you. It's like basically goes into a fish eye lens right where you're like you just seeing everything happening and that goes saying earlier about chasing different fish and then all of a sudden distracted and there's another one It was just such a fun experience because there is no other worries in the world. Now you're so focused on one fish. That's what I was focused on and what was happening around it and just Seen how this Wildlife is wild Yeah I remember that. That's an important part to the the intense focus and I felt that with very specific things like all of a sudden. The only thing is I'm concentrating on our breathing correctly. You know like me to remind and stuff okay breathe and then making sure waters not going into my snorkel my mask and stuff and then just aside from that looking at everything and experiencing it and being you know completely captivated so it's just from my normal life as as a creature who lives on land like this is completely different and forces you to just recalibrate and focus entirely on different things and that was fun days. I could literally there was just. Yeah it is. It is therapy Kind of like Sandra saying you know national parks when you're in it and you're you're really in it and it just relieves anxiety. All fears all depression. All everything and all you get to do is focus. Yeah One hundred percent. Yes yes so. Let's talk about things that you should bring to this national park. If you're planning on visiting reservations things. Yeah that's the number one because you're lucky enough to have a yacht or boat or something you that you absolutely need that even then even then take get a reservation and go on one of these tours. Because you're gonNA learn so much. The guides are really well educated. They know what they're talking about. And they're going to know the best places to go Yeah this is one of those parks where there isn't a lot you can do it unless you have a reservation to do something activity a tour because there's very limited things on on the mainland. There's that Jedi trail excellent Visitor Center. But you're really missing out if you don't go out and you need to go. You know quite a ways like miles out to get the keys and then beyond that to go snorkeling so reservations are important and as far in advance as possible. They weren't differ other. We made ours like a week in advance or whatever and it was totally fine. Yeah but still. Obviously I can't hurt and then bringing Sunscreen but like waterproof sunscreen is huge And then learning how to apply water Bought a proof like sunscreen. Because I've made a mistake where I like. You know I'll put it on and then I'll jump right in the ocean and you have to let it like basically cure for a couple of minutes to really actually just sink into not getting burnt. Yeah for sure and then if you have any wetsuit stuff by all means bring that it would save some money to rent those in addition or be like as we bought her own now after. That never ready. Yes we have our own fins which are really cute. I know I went away them. Just walk around with them. They're so cool wet suits and we even have the snorkeling. Life vests with the whistle. Just in case right Because it's always better to be prepared And that whistles more if you know anything goes wrong and you're gonna you might need it and most of the Times. We're in a very safe environment but it's always better to be prepared so yeah and then this isn't so much to bring but something to bear in mind and you touched on this a little bit but if you're going snorkeling and gear like you and your facial hair then yes you might not be expecting this but like what. What did you wind up having to do? I had to put Vassil. Lean all over my face all around the eyes and everything and it still didn't even work that great so when you WanNa go snorkeling you definitely want to Shave you want to have his bare face as you can right so that way? You can the the masks improperly seal to your face yeah and the vaseline helps without so basically if you're if you look dumbledore you probably should not snorkeling because you need a lot of ethylene. If you're like a wizard yes wizards. Beware GATT right. Probably not the activity for you but good good to know so. I think it's safe to say that. In addition to having some of my favorite slash most ridiculous history of all the National Parks Biscayne holds a very special place in my heart for helping me overcome my irrational fears. All my fears are rational. You've come a long way from your jaws fearing days. I mean to be clear. I'm still terrified of Juhasz. This gain is basically the emotional training wheels. I needed to help me take this new leap both literally and figuratively and we barely even scratched the surface here Because truly it's ninety.

"Now when it comes to leaving pets alone when boone docking I have a hard time leaving Finn in our RV while we're boondock so that kind of limits the things that were able to do When Boone docking for an extended period of time But if I do or when I do like okay. We're going on a little hike coming back. I always make sure that generators running with the AC or heater on whatever is necessary to make sure that Finney doesn't get too hot or too cold because we want to take care of him like he takes care of us. So you're going for your first time. Boone docking ever. I would recommend to make sure to know where the closest RV Parkas and the reason. Why is because you want to test out locally? You want to test out near your home or within a friend or family's home before you do it for a whole week. You know you WANNA go learn kind of like what we did with mammoth caves. You know when we were first learning how to just hook up an RV we went to mammoth caves and we checked it out and tried it out found our mistakes and our issues and that really helped us in the long haul Because we had like a small instance of what we needed and then in these situations and boone docking. When you're going to do you want to test that out locally as well you can even test out in your own backyard. But just make sure that you're not going to your fridge in your home for a beer. You want to know that you can have a cold beer in your In your fridge and your RV as well so make sure to take the time to learn about your RV Watch some videos. There's great youtube tutorials on Youtube about Boondock and for the first time stakes for the first time issues that they run into and I think it's really an important thing to do your research before you just go halfway across the country to think you can boondock anywhere and everywhere because finding these places are not easy. They're not close to things. They're not going to be in your national parks. They're normally not around your national parks But sometimes you know you can get away with it for the night but you know you have to be very careful because you do not want to disturb the wildlife. The reason main reason why Boondock is not allowed in national parks is because people will run their January vehicles all night well that changes the ecosystem wildlife's behavior the whole entire. Shebang of what the National Park is about and it's about preserving and protecting those animals and wildlife so when people are Boone in national parks any large numbers. It's not safe for that environment. So that's Boondocks with Brad That's one of the hardest episodes to really talk about. Because there's so many different situations with boone docking.

"The only way is through a new podcast in partnership with iheartradio and underarm. Join us as we hear from the world's greatest athletes coaches and trainers. They discuss how they utilize training competition recovery and the latest innovations if fitness to improve their performance and push through their personal physical ankle challenges. Here is Canadian. Heptathlete Georgia Ellen word. You can practice every day because you're working on things like you might slow something down or exaggerate another another thing but when you're competing you're going as hard as you can for even that short amount of time it's a lot of intensity and it's a lot of physical powers lot of mental power. I I think that's why it's so draining and to shift gears after every event like Oh. I just ran the hurdles. Now I have to think about high jump. How do I get as high up in the air is I can't after I just tried to run as fast as I can't giving that much intensity and such contrasting events can can be really difficult listening to the only way is through available now on the iheartradio APP off or wherever you get your podcast? twenty-seven club is a new podcast about famous musicians died prematurely in sometimes mysteriously seriously at the age of twenty seven this new serialized. PODCAST is hosted by me. Jake Brennan Creator. Host of the hit. Music and true crime. PODCAST disgracing disgracing by new show covers the lives and sometimes mysterious deaths of famous musicians. Who Died at the age twenty seven season one will feature Jimi Hendrix? It's an artist who short career burnt fast and refuses to be way. Jimmy was born on the twenty seventh day of November died twenty seven years later inbetween he lived fascinating and highly dramatic life filled with wild experts. Just like Jim Morrison just like Kurt. Cobaine just like Janice Joplin the grateful. Dead's pig pig pen Robert Johnson.

Language you listen to the twenty seven club on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcasts watch out for your years I am Matt and I'm Brad. This is park. Land area and this week's episode is about Yellowstone National Park and and North Western Wyoming Ecology. And Right. Now we're GONNA get into a little bit more detail about the wildlife here since it's a pretty the big deal. Yeah and it's really crazy. Because in the past couple of decades yellowstone has taught scientists a lot about how food webs and ecological systems work. It's An ecosystem that runs an energy from the sun a plant turn solar energy and to food for itself but then that plant is eaten by a cricket which is then eaten by a mouse which is then eaten by a snake which is then eaten by a hawk when the Huck dies its body provides food for bacteria and fungi which then in turn feeds plans. All of these animals represent what are called tropic levels what scientists now call links in the food chain and as representatives representatives of these trophic groups each other energy has passed all around the ecosystem. But what happens when one member of this food web. It's removed from the system. Yellowstone has has actually been ground zero for sort of unintentional experiment. Regarding what scientists I've come to refer to as trophic cascades and trophic cascades occur when predators editors hunting. Their prey keeps the number of prey animals. Down passing on the savings to the next trophic level. Whatever the prey animal eats then has a better shot at survival and on and on and on down the line right and in yellowstone what they did was they actually like reintroduced the Grey Wolves Wolves back India sewn and this is a perfect example of what we're talking about so in regards to walls like every wills are scary right like humans? I have never really liked them. which is kind of weird? Because they're the direct wild ancestors of Man's best friends domesticated dogs the fact that they're fast carnivorous her nevarez and they move around intimidating packs. I think plus the livestock they can eat like twenty pounds of meat in a single sitting. This is a this is what's lead. Humans is to create this like terrifying polity around wolves with things like Little Red Riding Hood Peter and the wolf the boy who cried wolf et Cetera et cetera historically gray wolves arranged around two thirds of the Modern Day United States home. But they've been driven out of most of it now They were hunted out of Yellowstone by Nineteen Twenty Ninety six. Yeah and then. In nineteen ninety-five however the park service released. Fourteen Grey Wolves from Canada into yellowstone after seventy years of wolf less ecosystem there. This decision of course was controversial in made a lot of humans mad but the ecological results were immediate and honestly pretty startling. In fact a lot of colleges think the wolves did in yellowstone was prevent elk and deer some of their favorite foods from eating all the plans especially near rivers. Yeah the wolves kept the deer out from denuding. The river valleys which promoted the growth of trees and the riparian areas. Riparian and meaning the special groups plants that grow in flood plains of rivers and streams. So this meant more beavers which are animals that creates special mini habitats for other animals. Like otters fish amphibians and so forth and more migratory birds visited as well. The wolves killed earned him the coyotes which meant they were then more rabbits and mice around with Third Hawks and other birds of prey to the area so huge facts and not only all that but it increased stabilization of the riverbanks near Narrow River channels. which makes more different kind of habitat in yellowstone as well so would have this huge ripple effect across pretty much every everything every animal every environment and the simple truth is that the effects the wolves took on yellowstone is complex? And this idea of trophic cascade being the saving grace of the park's ecosystem is a controversial one among scientists We basically can't replicate the study because there's not another yellowstone to replicate it and so we may never know exactly what effect wolves hat on yellowstone however it definitely taught us that the human mythology around wolves being Yvonne. Dangerous Villains lends deserving. Ratification is a very subjective. One right yeah. They can have a lot of benefits. Yeah I this is something. That is very complex and hard to kind of just dive into right because like they said you can't just replicated over and over again because even if you reintroduced wolves into Michigan I'm just using random place I mean. Yeah it's the ecosystem is so different. There and the cycle of life often the hunting cycles. They're so different that it would actually create a correct study. Yeah that's true but then when you also living about how like walls these two thirds of the US like they're clearly acclimated to a majority of this country and they they have every natural right to be there in a way so it's weird that suddenly humans are in this position where they're controlling it and dictating where wolves are relocated to. And then what what happens. So it's it's strange because like they were here before people were and I mean they've been gone out to do a reintroduced but they're different species of wolves. I think they're the closest to but you can't have the exact act if they didn't stay in that ecosystem right. I mean the same thing with the bison they were reintroduced into a national park this year. Oh Yeah Yeah. Which one was in that while they moved more bison to badlands released them? They're so like this isn't an entirely new concept. This has happened before yellowstone. This will happen in the future and other places so but that will have an impact on that national. Yeah and it sounds like it's going great and yellowstone so cute us to the offs. We did not see any walls in yellowstone. Regretfully I would love to. I know that That one takes a lot of pain. Definitely something I I would love to do is like just slow down a little bit because we normally like kind of go through national parks and try to get everything in and that's why we revisit national parks as well though because the the things that we miss but yellowstone is one of those national parks that we have both been to multiple times now for multiple days at a time. I mean I think we both have combined maybe twenty thirty days in that park and we still haven't even scratched the surface. Yeah the what is it. One percent of yellowstone. Oh stone is actually seem by the tourists that go there grunting percent so there's so much in that ecosystem that wildlife that diversity that we have to re-explore and that is why we're even continuing with the part two of yellowstone national a park later this season right. It won't be the next episode. So you're going to have to stay tuned you're going to have stand your toes and get ready for more and more of that beautiful. Oh beautiful place that yellowstone is yeah but of a cliffhanger but also the exciting thing too is. We'll be able to incorporate like R. V. experienced they are because now they're vesper in an RV. I visited so it's GonNa be fun to drugs. Lodges Hotels Yeah Inside the Park outside the park. Where do you WanNa stay day since both of our first trips were pretty? RV We're going to save RV segment for part two and since we we visited together we are in RV and experienced it from totally different perspective. Exactly so for that reason and a bunch of other things excited for party because this really is one of those enormous dynamic parks that feels completely fresh and new upon each visit. And it feels like you're visiting a different place when you're in an RV as well that's for sure so that'll be fun to talk about incorporate. Yeah for now though. We hope you have been inspired to visit or revisit. This ultimate National Park. It's a place. We have loved him an individually and together it's been inspiring and it's just put.

"My favorite. So there's a lot to unpack with Rocky Mountain National Park. Yeah lots of options with this one big Park Hark experiences. What is your favorite thing about Rocky Mountain National Park? Well I would say I would say the trail Ridge road in general but more specifically I really loved that trail. We did kind of at the top of at the tender communities jail doing that's only a mile rate which really good time. I liked it because it was a completely new experience for both of us to hike in an environment like that Alpine Tundra and the the weather aside from the when the weather is perfect hiking weather. The views were just phenomenal. Like nothing else. I think either a survivor scene. And it truly felt like you're up. nope perched on like the ceiling of the continent which is hard to describe to feel that high up and overlooking so so much I remember when we got there. We actually made a little video and I screamed we made at the Rocky Mountain. Oh yes and you like. It was like Thou effect while I was screaming because the wind was so heavy it was yeah. It's really good. I remember I was like the background of that video. Like crawling on the rocks on all force myself together. Yeah and like lower my center of gravity it was intense but also clearly super memorable an amazing so I think bows probably my favorite part. What about you my favorite report? Gosh this one was really difficult because there's just so much history there So much culture and I mean I loved Estes Park Gordon. I love the Stanley Hotel. But I'd have to say was Going into the cabins and seeing the taxidermy cermony and like freshman biscuits and like the culture behind right before became a national. Pardon the the dude ranch the dude ranch the Colorado River. Yeah because it was just it was a really pureed walk and it was fine. It was cozy. Like I feel like I could like hang out there for a day and just to have a great time Because I really liked to relax and opposite of you where you like to like climb to the top is the highest mountains you can find and so I think just personality style. I would really love to just relax and stay there for a day but I don't think you really can. I mean you'd be you'd be like that's a waste of a whole day. It'd be nice to if they turned it. BNB option where they apply with biscuits in the morning. Just chill out and like the Rose Cabinet one of the cabins you can walk through and you see like just this preserves face of what it was like their originally and really Nice Jason Homey. I think it'd be a lovely place. Maybe with some more modern matinees like Wi fi or whatever that it would be nice. Because I don't just like sit in silence for twenty four hours or whatever I would love them but You know what's actually Really good like the trails that we did. We didn't need hiking equipment but there's a lot of trails that you do and like that one you. Did you needed those hiking stuff. So like a couple of things that you could bring are definitely like hiking liking sticks that would be very helpful here like The shoe yeah. How snow spikes shoes? Because I liked in those In New England and my dad has some so when I'm gone on hikes with him I warn them and they're amazing. They make a huge difference and I really could have used something like that here. When ended the Charleston Lake trail? There's some that you can even do like cost country skiing on In the winter now when we were there but so like the definitely a lot of hiking options. So when you're planning your trip make sure to think about when you're going what trails. They're going to be and what specific acidic equipment. You need for hiking. 'cause there's a lot of hiking that's available here and it's A. I'd say it's my whole thing when I most diverse hiking Marx that I've been to because of this ability of snow cross country skiing like kind of bouldering. There's actual like rock climbing Ming. I mean there's just about everything in Rocky Mountain National Park there. Yeah there really is. It sounds cliche but this is one of those places where there truly is something for everyone every age ability interest level. You know whatever you're looking for it's bound to have a whatever type of view on hiking trail all it's and incredible place and it's very very fun to to explore whether it's on your own or with a partner or a family or a large group. It's fantastic caustic. Men Got even-handedness as park after. And just have the best time getting ice cream and fudge thing. You could bring those when you're doing these hikes if you're going to be a little bit more hardcore to bring like there's cans of oxygen different things like that or camelback so we have a ton of water because if you're going on sixteen mile trail it's sound like one bottle of water is GonNa get you. You're going to need camelback you're getting these snacks and trail mix and things like that We have enough time to like Foley unpack and like repack and do something like that big but I think it would be fun to go back in the winter and do that absolutely because it's such that's a great time. Yeah and then another point is when we were there and throughout summer June July August and September two it can be amount house the parking lots fill up very early and some of them are rather small so it's advised that you get your day started early because you don't want to like like plan your day and have this trail in mind that you want to do and then drive all the way to find that there's no space whatsoever. Yeah I saw that happen to a lot of people. Unfortunately that was not the issue with us. We had a rental car that was compact and small enough that we could get into a lot more space than the RV but but in winner. You don't WanNa have a compact car. You're going to have something that's four wheel drive you're GonNa WanNa make sure you have like snow chains. There's definitely different things that you have to pap for when you're coming to Rocky Mountain National Park depending on the season yeah So far this summer compact car is perfect. Winter don't even dream about coming to drive. Dr Yeah No really what do you think is Something that we would bring layers. Of course right you'd have to bring layers and again even even in the summer we had layers. We had like a T. shirt Sweatshirt and a jacket that we could shred or go depending on our elevation Asian because at one thousand feet of elevation difference makes a difference. Yes it really does. And I'm when we traveled road. I was wearing shorts and then initially like a t shirt. When we're in the Estes Park area then again in Grand Lake but while we're up there doing communities trail I had to put a jacket on uh-huh jacket that is my winners? Don't quit themselves beyond sea truck and of course the Bruins Jack L.. No that's right. Not a bruins kidding but Yeah so it's good to have stuff like that and it's light enough where you could easily carry it along and then throw it on if if you need air tight around your waist if it's getting to arm mm-hmm whatever so that's advised so between layers in snow choose and snow chains and all different things so many things things that you need to bring when you decide how you want to visit how you WanNa find your park how you want to discover it what you need to do is you need to think about the research behind when how and why Yeah but really rocky mountain is right up there. As one of the most iconic connick national parks in the country and it's an absolute must see for anyone into hiking especially anyone hiking and also anyone into horror novels vols coors light and fudge apparently to.

"And then of course you have to get your basics. You're cleaning supplies. Your kids in organizational items toiletries And that actually brings me to our V.. Friendly Toilet paper. Don't use Sharman. I'm sorry Sherman but that stuff will clog up your RV so quick. I remember what I tried to use. You know sermon soft. I was so excited sided and it just clogged up so we had to pay someone to come out one hundred and fifty bucks to back Flush RV tank to get all the cluttered a toilet paper out so get used to not using the good stuff in the RV. You're definitely need to find your. RV friendly toilet paper Because you don't want to make a hundred and fifty dollar mistake because again. That's your resources at your money that you're traveling. We run out to dinner a couple of times multiple times with that But we had to spend it on back flushing. RV So don't make the same mistake as we did. There's a lot of brands of like. RV friendly toilet paper and honestly you. You can find these at camping. World's a lot of campsites actually carry. RV friendly toilet paper in the little mini camp store because they know that so important to your RV the system so you can when you're traveling through RV parks in different places. Walmart's you can actually find a lot of places that have friendly. RV Toilet Paper Roll along the road and the last thing. I really want to bring up our trailer hitches because they're so important when you're driving down the road so for for us we me nowadays. Just have our classy motor home and our scooter. But there's a specific thing that we have to put our scoot around. You know we have this motorcycle hedge so it just goes right into our hitch and then there's a ramp that we can put our scooter up in and then we use tie. Downs straps to tie-down or scooter. So that's one option of a trailer hitch Another trailer hitches. Their ball hitch. And those are the ones that you're gonNA ninety percent of trailers us They you know you just drop the trailer on it. Unlock it in you. Use Your latches and you can take off Plugging your electricals. That way. There's brake lights on your trailer. But then there's the fifth wheels like we talked about in the last boone docking with Brad which are in the middle of your truck so this wouldn't be an RV now this is not for our RV but this is to go into a truck so there's many different options for trailer hitches And our saving grace. This year was definitely the load bar. Sway Bar Combo This this little bar sway bar. Combo is like three hundred and fifty bucks but it just it saves your rear when you're driving eighty miles an hour down the road in your RV with the trailer behind it and then you get a big huge gust of wind like we did in Texas. I mean I still had to pull over. visit them feel safe. But I know for sure that this load bar sway bar. Combo really helped now with this. What does slowed bar sway? Bar Combo does is is it takes the load off of your rear wheels and it puts them more towards your front wheels making it more even not what a load bar does the sway bar with that does hooks up to your trailer and it makes your trailer doesn't sway back and forth or fishtail so while you're driving your you have complete control control over your vehicle. One thing that I learned is because I was pulling so much weight in our trailer this year is that we needed to get front shocks. That could hold up a better too so we actually blew out like our shocks on this year and so we Had to get those replaced. That was it was a cheap upgrade but basically now it's ready for the next time we ever have to pull a trailer behind us so there's a lot of little technicalities when you're towing behind A trailer like ah I mean this one had was probably at full capacity between the weight of our RV itself because you have to factor that into towing power for your engine. Your specific engineered chassis was like nine thousand pounds and I remember there was a point where between what our housing was or RV itself and the trailer behind. Find Us. Because you have to factor in the weight of the trailer itself. Even the tow bar hedge was like one hundred pounds The low bar. Combo is hundred. Pounds And then the weights. We had two pallets of Syrup which was another like five four or five thousand pounds so basically we had seven thousand impounds when I was done calculating it An eight thousand power pound to- limit and that's good because you don't want to push to your limit the whole time but we were only driving thing for like twenty hours with that and then dropped off one pallet and kept on going out north when we're heading to Las Vegas last year so there's definitely a lot of different for instances and you really need to make sure that you understand what your limits are for your vehicle and what they need so just because you have a classy doesn't mean you can tell whatever you want because it doesn't have the correct amount of power to actually pull those behind so then that leads you into maybe upgrading to that class. A. Diesel Or Class A gas. You know you do that but it's always better have diesel. It's definitely a better pusher. It's better for when you're going through the Blue Ridge mountains in the great smoky mountains. Or if you're going through the passes over Breckenridge Vail definitely want that diesel pusher because otherwise you're gonna be going up these at like forty forty miles an hour and it's gonNA drive you and everybody around you crazy so knowing your limits and how toe and where you're going is so important when traveling traveling but I guess that's something that will have to cover in a future episode boondock brand and Today I was really happy to be able to take you through the essentials that you need for. RV living just go a little bit more into understanding your RV specifically Understanding your needs and what it is that drives these beautiful homes across this country.

"WGN TV. Talk at all things black Friday on WGN. And I was asking what people are out running around for if you're out today. Because Dan said he's seeing reports the parking lot at Woodfield is eighty percent full. So people are out and about what are you doing? Carol wants to jump on. Hi, carol. Hi, brian. You make me laugh. I I just love when you're on the radio. Well, thank you. I appreciate that. So well. Are you? Yeah. Let get to Macy's opened at five PM yesterday. Got there about half hour. Forty minutes early. Got a slot dot five down from the door. And waited two o'clock. I wasn't gonna wait in the cold. Eighteen people go in. In that. The lower level. They had. Than sheep. Got a couple for a wedding present for wedding. I'm going to share fifty thread count. Twenty nine ninety nine percent. What did they start two hundred dollars two hundred dollars and they were down to twenty nine ninety nine. Yes. Did they have a lot of them were there like six sets? And they drew. Different areas different like countertops that had not a lot and each color. I was looking for. I was able to get. And. Then they were organized said a section not too far away from where I picked up the shades where it was checkout set a little bit of a weight there, but not long they were working for registers attacked back looks pretty quickly. I was out in back in my car. Almost an hour after I part to get in there in out done. Wow. That's not bad. It was it was packed in there. Because you clamped on the only. Just trying to get through. The door true. And then to the downstairs where they have all the linens. People would just say, oh my. I that people. Now, are you done? Carolina was this year. Was this your one outing for black Friday? Or are you going back out later today? I'm going back out his warning getting up and getting dressed to go out to Menards. This is just during near where I live, okay. Pick up a couple of things. Forces kids. I know. Participate that to my church for that. Things that would work for the kid. So then I should be done. Well, good luck. I don't I don't envy you battling those crowds. It is not too. That's why I try to avoid it at all costs. But I'm glad it worked out well for you. I like the also you're planning ahead year ahead with wedding gifts. That's just my godson in history on who we love. And they had just gotten a king size bed. But I'm guessing. I'm not gonna have really nice sheets at the beginning. But now they will thank saying, Carol. Yeah. Very nice. Well, enjoy the rest of your day. Carol, thanks for checking in. I appreciate it. Okay. Thanks, Brad care Bye-bye. That's very nice going out early. I couldn't I couldn't do it. And it's funny. We were the place that we had dinner on thanksgiving was writing right next to a Macy's. And I will we walked in at about two thirty. You knew it was closed, and it still had we left before five. So it wasn't open. But I don't you know, there's no chance there's nothing. There's nothing that I need to be out at that hour. No, you're not doing it. I know you're not doing black Friday. Yeah. I don't blame. You one outta curiosity by myself a couple years ago? Yeah. That's kind of wandered around. I'll say I don't need it like I went to an electronic stores. I don't really need a fridge or anything. So. What to do it here? There was a line when I left what time did I leave to come here about nine Forty-five last night. I left to come to work and the best buy right near me was packed. And again, it's a holy cow. I get it. But. Just not for me. I only did it once and I didn't go until it was like five o'clock black Friday afternoon. So it wasn't you know, the crazy, and that was great because the sales were still going the thing that I wanted was still there. But there was no because everybody was asleep. They'd been up since five o'clock twelve hours ago, they were shop until you're not brawling with people. It was I wandered in. I thought I was like what's all the fuss about this black Friday shepherds a cinch? But I'm not out there. Now battling just woke up about the head out bow hunting for deer black Friday for the deer. But in a whole different way. Right. Some other things you need to avoid the deals.

"We won't that means we'd have to hit the dump. Fortunately, we're saying that. Yeah. Okay. So us weekly does have. So the Brad Pitt. I really am going to tell because I love to talk about this when Julius gone just like, she loves to talk about it when I'm gone ca she's back to believing that, you know, I mean bidder Angelina is parenteral alienating the kids from Brad Pitt. And I am of the opinion. That Brad Pitt is the one who alienated himself from his wife and his kids by being a mean during keen pot-smoking man every day of their life, you Laurie. Yeah. I think it was all his behavior that led to the situation that we find ourselves in today. Yeah. Yeah. So anyway, and he's he's taken ownership of that in that one interview. But not like how his team has tried to smear Angelina Jolie. And I think that's one reason why she fired. Her lawyer, Laura Wasser who is a big buddy of Harvey Levin and leaks like a sieve to TMZ when it helps her achieve something divorced, and she's very very good at. His, but she's not Angelenos lawyer anymore. So the custody hearing begins in two weeks, December fourth not that either. Julia. I haven't honor. Oh, no, not at all. Gossip a couple of weeks ago that that's the court date. Brad and Angelina the lawyers our lawyers are meeting, and they may try to do something before the court date happens in December. They want to come to. That's what they would like to do in. No us weekly has gotten a nice little tidbits, Brad. Pitt's lawyers morsel Brad's just wants the war to end in that he's made a desperate plea to Angelina for them to settle the custody battle out of court because he's so worried about this psychological damage to the children and a source close to Jill Lee. Probably her lawyer says they're working together to reach a settlement outside of court. But she is not backing down. From what she wants out of the custody, which is basically, I think she's. Tokyo person and you get them every other weekend to visit. Right. So anyway, and I think that I think that someone's lawyers Brad Pitt's lawyers have started to prepare him for the idea that the custody hearing will not go his way. And it's not it seems like that's their big fear. Team. Brad Pitt at the moment because I get that. If they're trying to convince us that Brad care so much about the psychological wellbeing of his kids and maybe for the past two and a half years. He shouldn't have been smearing via tabloids page. Six teams us weekly Angelina because his kids are seventeen fourteen thirteen twelve and ten. You know, the aware of that well, the internet age and all of that. I mean, he if I'm just saying that he's he hasn't stopped his team from smearing. He did his may culpa and g g q said it was my fault. He is what happened on the plane. But he said, you know. Yeah, I was drunk and stoned every day, you know, since I was twenty three years old or something like that. I do feel like Angelina 's lawyer has put the fear of God into Brad Pitt's, lawyers, and that Brad Pitt's lawyers also know based on preliminary what the child custody evaluators. Well, it seems. The kids are saying mom we like living with you and visiting dad that could very well be the case, it seems like Angelina totally has the upper hand on this though does.
