Grant the fragile union and the crisis of 1876 by Bret baier Brett how are you sir Hey Mark Thanks for having me on Well it's always a pleasure You write very very smart and very compelling books about history and so forth What caused you to write a book about Ulysses S. Grant I think he's one of the least understood presidents And yet one of the greatest presidents am I right I agree I mean and that's what I really found You know and we've talked before about the previous books I did about Eisenhower and Reagan and FDR Churchill installing and moments in history where I thought history they're kind of brushed it over or didn't focus on those moments That was the beginning middle and end of the Cold War And I was looking for another one of those historical kind of overshot something that wasn't that focused on And I looked at grant's presidency You know his 8 year presidency whenever you hear about it it is always about the difficulties and the petty corruption and scandals And there were some And there were people that grant trusted as a non politician who took advantage of them Make money But his most important role was really to win the peace After the Civil War and most importantly the process of reconstruction in the south to make sure it was successful And as you dig in here there are really consequential things that happen

Learning From Evolution With Evolutionary Biologists Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying

"You guys said that we are not a blank slate but we are the blanket of slates. Which i think is a phenomenal way to put this idea and wanna tie that to the title and get your guys as take so. It's hunter-gatherers guide to the twenty first century. and so the way that i take that is that notion. You have to understand that you're a product of evolution that your brain is a product of evolution and then once you understand the forces of evolution in how we got here. Then maybe just maybe we can find our way out of it. So what are the key elements to being a product of evolution. That you think people miss that we must understand if we're going to navigate our way well out of this valley of evolution. Let me say. I That the title hunter-gatherers guide to the twenty first century evokes that sort of romanticised hunter-gatherer on the african savannah of the paleolithic. Which of course is a part of our human history and does have many lessons in it to teach us about who we are now and who can become but as we say in the book we are all parts of our history like we are not just hunter-gatherers. We are also right now post industrialists and their evolutionary implications of that. Go a little farther back a lot. Farther back depending on your framing. And we are agriculturalists. Go farther back. Were hunter-gatherers go further back were primates were mammals. Were fish all of these moments of our evolutionary history We'll have left their mark in us and have something to teach us about both what our capacities are and what our weaknesses are and what we can do going forward. And i would add the lessons from evolution. are both good and bad here. One thing that we realized that our students over the course of many years of teaching this material realized was that everything about our experience as human beings is shaped by our evolutionary nature. And that has a very disturbing upshot because we are fantastic creatures with an utterly mundane mention the very same mission that every other evolved creature has to logic genes in the future. And this actually explains the nature not only of our physical beings but of our culture and our perception of the world so understanding that all of that marvelous architecture is built for an utterly mind-numbing purpose is an important first.

"Yeah we are never in the book we try to be very clear to never justify bad behavior or really any behavior this is not justification right that we do not fall prey to the naturalistic fallacy. In that way what we're trying to do is explain so that we can be better going forward all of us right on so just as bret said if the evolution of sex happened something between one and two billion with a b. years ago and conservatively within our lineage that's been an uninterrupted lineage of or history of sexual reproduction with two and only two sexes for at least five hundred million years and probably much longer than that so You know so. We have sex evolving. And then we have. You know not too long after that. The behavioral manifestations of sex evolving as well and in non human animals we call that sex role in humans we call that gender and gender is tightly following tightly aligned with sacs not exactly you know not perfectly and the more the more variable you are. You're the more like like humans you are in terms of being social and long lived generational overlap and lung childhoods all of these things. More behaviorally label you are the more likely gender sex roles are to not exactly match onto what sex you are. And that's both fine and is in no way it rebuttal to the fundamental reality of binary sex so people with stronger cultural emphasis on these things may say well. You're excusing bad. Male behavior or the stronger argument likes late. Argument is that therefore we can't do anything about it you know boys will be boys. Men will be men. So how do you respond to that kind of deter deterministic. If it's biology. I can't change it well again. I think one of the things that we hope people will come away from. The book with is an understanding that culture is no less biological than genes. As i said before but that the degree to which culture can be changed is much greater in other words..

Derek Jeter Is Intrinsic to the Story of Baseball

"Era, baseball is a story, beginning to end. You can not tell the story of a baseball that Derek Jeter's extremely meaningful contributions. He owns signature moment after a signature moment. If you're not a fan of the Yankees, I understand why you wouldn't want to watch them again. I don't want to watch David Ortiz's home runs, but Derek Jeter is intrinsic to the fabric of the game from 1995 to roughly 2012. He deserves to be celebrated. He would be and I'm gonna go one, I'm gonna go one more here. People say Jeter wouldn't be celebrating the same manner if he played in Kansas City or Milwaukee. I'm gonna go another level and say he would be much more celebrated if he'd played against the city or Milwaukee and was just as great. Do you see what they say about George Brett? He is the leader of an entire generation of fans for the entire Midwest. People think George Bret is unimpeachably a God. If they're generated play one of these small cities and won one to two World Series surrounded by good teams in these tinier baseball towns, he would be he would be the first 101 percenter Hall of Famer. He suffers from being a Yankee because people have Yankee fatigue. That's my hottest take it and I'm putting that on you. Do you agree or disagree? I agree with CCC Matthew played a half season with the brewers and he's still a legend there. Like he's gonna get a statue. Yeah. Derek Jeter, I mean, it's hilarious because now all of a sudden when people have whole definitive Hall of Fame cases and it's someone you don't like. Then we're gonna dive into the contrarian statistics. And we're gonna look at advanced defensive stats and how they weren't that great. And why that should knock him down a peg as one of the all time greats. I and that's the same people who will argue that that, you know, if you don't have enough championships, why do you deserve to be in the hall fame? It's just every argument is to satisfy the

"Gimmicks dot com the officials. Something to wrestle store where you can find gimmicks for yourself or the fan in your life you items added weekly. I'm with you on there. There could be two potential things but it feels like and i could be wrong. I don't know feels like at times by someone we've heard he sort of has his vision for what he thinks. The top of the car needs to look like and sometimes and this. Is you know before you were back. They were fans online. Turpin about all roman reigns. this roman reigns that and of course these days we know roman reigns over like nobody's business but we don't talk about current stuff. I'm just trying to bring up a point that i feel like this is one of the few times. Maybe the first time since you've been there where you could wonder man. He always has it together. He always has the answer. But he's not confident in this answer. Yes there are two possible answers but normally he's pretty decidedly. We're this is what we're doing. Maybe not some of the undercard stuff but for the top the direction of the company. This is the first time it sort of feels like a ship without a sail and by the way. That's not necessarily his fault. Let's not forget in the background. He's on trial for his whole fucking life. There's a lot of shit going on. Yeah then again. It wasn't oh we don't know what we're doing. We knew what we were doing. Which is do we had two options and it was. That's a good problem to have when you when you have two options and you have two ways to go again. I'm just saying tad context. We've talked about this before. With regard to shawn michaels where he would say. God it stop telling me he's a baby face. That little son of a bitch will never be a baby face and then fast forward. A few months. I've been telling you guys. He's a baby. Say he flip flopped but he was solid in his convictions. Either way right. It's not like he's wishy washy like well could be. This could be that whether it's right or wrong. It feels like he always had no. This is our guy. What's fucking wrong with you. You know and he saw his conviction could go either way I think hindsight being twenty twenty. If i were betty man i would think that brett will i mean. The vince solid in his conviction that it was going to be brett but he didn't want to that anybody know in the talk of it being luger and people going it could be either or it was a pickle to me if he if he thought it was lugar. He would've decided by summer slam. Just beat yoko at summer slam but when he did go that way it feels like you know if he was really sold on him he would have did it but he didn't so it's going to be breath. Let's keep it going Let's also talk about some meltzer speculation. owen the the owen storyline was modeled. After the bruno martino larry's nabisco storyline think. There's any comparison there all thank stupid comparison. Okay do you want to explain. Why wasn't this was based in family. This was based in family jealousy. This wasn't based on you trained to me brett now. I'm gonna turn my back on you. This was from day. One is a child looking up to your older brother. You don't have to get hot bam. I don't get hot about it because yeah i made a comparison. He didn't make an accusation. You're you're hot at a comparison. I hate him faulk this. This is exhausting breath. I'm tired of this show. I mean it feels like you're just irritable and fuss. And i mean i heard what you did before all your animal and fussing about everything fuss about nothing great. Bret hart ends ninety three. On new year's even williamsport pennsylvania in front of a packed house of two thousand. Five hundred people is going to defeat. Irs in the main event is probably the most nineteen ninety thing pau nineteen ninety-three thing possible This is a weird year for brat. He's the guy he's not the guy he's kinda guy. Is this the year that maybe solidified brett events that if nothing else he's mr reliable and they have nothing else. He's mr steady and reliable. Yeah always they're always going to deliver and do what you want. He's always going to be be that guy. The guy that always delivers gives you what you expect. I wanna i wanna ask here too. Is this also. Perhaps and i'm just freestone. Is this also. Perhaps when he realizes he is steady he is reliable but he's not exactly the superstar that were we hoped for. I think vince kinda still look at. It is. we'll get there really. Do think that. Vince wanted it for brett and figured we will get there. Maybe it's just gonna take a little bit longer than we anticipated. Hindsight being twenty twenty and again. I realize timing is everything but do you think his whole the hart family. The canadian stampede. The the anti-american the canadian hero. Do you think that thing could have worked in ninety four for lex and bret with legs being the all american patriot. Okay no i. Don't think that any you know. Unfortunately i don't think lex let's could come off genuine on either side of that. You know what i mean. Forget lex for a minute. I'm really trying to ask a question about breath. Do you think. Because i think breath. Nineteen ninety seven is fucking masterful. I think if you take brad's nineteen ninety-seven you can put it up against almost anybody. As far as the promos. The entering work the character work. I was more invested in. Brett's nineteen ninety seven creative body work than any other year by a mile and it felt real and i guess my question is those. Were trying to find okay. He's our steady reliable. He's always going to have good matches blah blah blah. But that's him as a baby face. Do you think brett could've turn that knob to eleven as the canadian hero here in ninety four and been he'll know because he wasn't the canadian hero yet i think brett needed that run is a champion and as the end. All be all to get you to that point. I say i'm accents unless there's some questions here from fans we've got ontario wild man podcast. I guess forgetting creative with how we're plugging here. was selecting bret hart to become the main event guy. A strategic move to redirect is and change people's minds of what wrestlers are supposed to look like because of the steroid trial or was brad truly picked because he was supposed to be the next hulk hogan so We didn't talk about steroid trial. But i do think that's worth mentioning. You wanna guy who can be your poster boy. Who does it look like the anabolic warrior. Has i think some of called the ultimate warrior that has to play a assumption in california. Call them that but anyway I don't know the the the idea to change the idea to give a completely different presentation. Yes but how brett was picked was looking at specifically reaction that he had received on last. Few international tours is dependability. And the length of time that he had been there and to be something different. Not to be the next hulk hogan and that's what we made the mistake in sometime. Say what would we have done this with hulk. Brent wasn't hope right in that and that was also the beginning of man we got. We got to present different than we would ask questions so that was on us but brett was the guy because he was a dependable guy solid. You knew exactly what you were getting in there was a groundswell you look at the international audience that felt that hey man. This guy's a megastar but steroids had a little bit of something to do with it. I mean we did a kevin nash episode years ago. One of our first ones when we talked about kevin coming over you were pretty playing about saying. Oh yeah. He's huge. He's jacked and he's cleaned so that been. Yeah as far as being champion. Or i'm sorry. I lost context but no brett bread was definitely a different look. It wasn't he wasn't someone that people were going to look at and say. Oh look this.

Creating more of a we created it because there are a lot of people that were behind this and i wouldn't have done it if it was just voiced bought alone. That was working on this. So that was that was one thing. But if i step back really the whole idea started with this this this other trend. We've seen among people in the industry. The ones that you and i interact with most frequently. And that's the community voice Developers owners the preneurs the business Business folks that the big companies even and what i notice happening starting about two years ago as the startup fragmentation and that accelerated last year. And so you know. I think about like three years ago we all got together in newark right and so we will together and last year. We weren't able to do that so that wasn't able to bind us together. And there were some other types of activities that we're all binding us together whether it's all building skills or doing something else and that just that just evaporated over the last. I would say two years but it was really cute last year. And so i was thinking that. That's one of the things that we do and that's really the core of your business is community but we are sort of a central gathering place at voice spot for lots of things. So i think i think we do something around community known sort of a side project that i'll do just to provide value. Everybody and that. It looked actually for a fleeting moment like clubhouse was helping with that. 'cause everyone was getting together not everybody. But at least ios people and then later the android people We're we're getting talking but that's not really a community platform so that wasn't going to quite do it And so basically.

Maybe even industry acknowledged that you're excited about what jumps to mind when i say so it's hard not to talk about things that are related to the pandemic because we're in the middle of it still in your What really changed over the last twelve to eighteen months was how chaotic the world became and then businesses trying to adapt to a chaotic world consumer facing businesses especially retail whether it's retail facing like insurance like a retail banking or insurance or or pure retail companies all realized that the old ways of predicting human behavior and optimizing experience just no longer works people no longer behave in a rational way as what we ran out of toilet paper and flour and everything else during the pandemic people just didn't behave as normal and all of a sudden. Now there's this possibility of perhaps adapting faster better prediction and then also new techniques around prescriptive analytics so not just knowing what might happen next. What could i do about. Its optimize profit or revenue or customer. Set those kinds of things and so new things came out in the last twelve months. That really helped that. I give you an example so there was a company that sells some form of snack around the us and during the pandemic they realized that their supply demand models were completely raw and they adjust on this nice piece of work to bring all their data together and so we had a nice date of foundation but they wanted to predict in their old models. Were just linear charts. That basically said. Here's which we sold this quarter last year. You know this is the variations by region. So they guessed how much they should need. It turns out that because things are changing so rapidly. They needed adaptive models so we applied machine learning. We actually came up with four or five different models depending on the region and then front end to recommend which model might be most appropriate for the situation.

Reports have surfaced the company's weighing whether to put itself up for sale and microsoft is mulling a bid of reportedly ten billion dollars so far discord is declined to comment on the reports. Right bret. yeah they have but it does bring up an interesting question for those who don't know a lot about discord which is what exactly is this app. it started in two thousand and fifteen. According to an about page on dischord the two co founders jason's citron and stand dish nevsky wanted to create a platform that encourage discussion. And what they say is quote recreate the feelings of togetherness when they play video games. So i use discord. Because i've used it for different games and things like that The way it works is each of the communities is called a server and one of the key differences between discord and other services. Is you joined the service through invite now for a lot of the public ones. They put the invite info up easily for people to to grab onto so some of those you can get that way One that i'm on that's related to Nba two k. Which is game. I've been playing quite a bit lately. you basically hop on the server. They have on the left pane. Different categories of topics that they cover and each topic is essentially like a message. So you would click on the topic and it would pull up the chat related to that topic so the way the nba two k. One works is it's broken down by different game modes in the game and so their players that are there to talk about online. They might wanna find people play online with or their modes where you're like running seasons and you're doing career stuff and you're trying to get advice on building player out or doing things with your team.

So that gives you an indication that some many ways we were we are working longer. So are there specific trends. That experts have spotted that are pointing to why we're working longer days while we're all remote while some of those reasons. Are you know we have problems disconnecting and we have like digital attractions Overloads hurt bringing noise. We were as as i was talking and the research. I spoke to mix to working longer. It's well said up that there's a growing consensus that That we're we're more more times in stressful working together working Apart from where we were in person and it one of those reasons were having more virtual meetings in debt therefore to be harder to the gate coworkers body language there's more vigil visual information to adjust included slide shows graphics and also being seen on camera curbs need to have you know quote unquote an on air personality. Well that yeah. I think i've felt that way to you. Know yeah hold on you know we get more phone calls for tax. Were emails more messages. Almost what you said. Mike and and you know we are seeing each other in a workplace. So we're always just have this no always on mentality. Why also wonder if you know. Sometimes since i'm working at home i take a break to put a little andrea. Enter to go make a sandwich. And then i feel guilty. When six o'clock comes that. I'm don't stick around longer to any advice. These folks gave you that you found from people that you interviewed that. I'm how to cut back on some of these extra forty nine minutes or two to three hours depending on what craziness year involved in. Yeah yeah they. We should really try to take a break one possible. Whether that's a series of by timothy breaks across the day edition of maybe taken an hour hour long lunch at teachers said than done especially in our line of work. I like one of my subsequent story. Kelly christoffersen who works at a houston based opera company. Said that quote we were just ourselves becoming available as multiple worse are always online whether we admit it or not. And i said we're more vulnerable. And says that i guess is more of a share experience through the pandemic raw trying to adapt and get through it. She example Talked to her depth shit april meetings on on platforms or you can zoom will meet. Microsoft teams webex. Her meeting her. I mean again at seven and then she purposely disconnected by pm and she's doing virtual the following day she tries to go poor rhyme or take a walk and she has her poem with her but she tries to not take a look at her. Feel it when when it's going up. She wants to check. Take that break and so we just have to just try to find the strength to know when when to step away and there are some employers. Who are trying to help do that. As well as i mentioned a company in iowa tech engineering company in austin texas there were gonna initiative to create a better work life balance one things. They've done in begay their workers two weeks off without impacting their vacation time and some of the departments are tested. A no me fridays. It's as we've got into this a year ago to work remotely and we've also got a way to continue to work remotely but also without jeopardizing our welby. I'm sure a lot of listeners would love a no meeting monday in a no meeting tuesday and meeting wednesday and run down the week but thanks as always for joining us. It was great having you and look forward to having you on again. Big appreciate it

"Oem's game in that market grew and of course in recent years and people who know me know that i've i've supported and been a proponent of software luggage things that don't bounce off of stop as much but i'm also a firm believer in hard luggage. There's a place in time for everything. And when i did south america my epa hundred jazz was equipped with jesse. Luxury was the perfect product and bag for that particular trip and another trip. I did africa. I was using the the moscow. Motor stuff i use. Both i changed back and forth based on the needs the ride. What i'm doing. What level security. I want how much stuff i'm carrying with me. How convenient i wanted. Is it primarily a road trip or is it a trip. And i think from your perspective. There's a lot more competition in the hard luggage. Category and so many writers have gone from hard panders to soft panners. Or they've gone and done what. I recommend which is to have a combination that way when i go out and i'm no i'm going to be falling down throws off panthers on when i'm doing terrain commuting grocery shopping if i'm doing a lot of international stuff where i have concern that i run the heart beyond yours. So how are you planning on tackling that market. How you plan on getting back. Well fortunately for us the previous owner devon oven. He took off from what al had started on a soft luggage adapter plate. We've really had a good crowd primarily. I would say the on the ktm in our ktm rack for the ten eleven twelve ninety s. They fit really well on that by really narrow really tight and those guys generally have the mentality of a harder aggressive ride and adventure and they'll take our rack and use our soft luggage adapter plate and mount most of the time. It's a moscow moto bag because the holes in our plate matchup with the back plate of the moscow thirty five backcountry bag. You'll see them ride with the adapter plate and some of those guys. I can't give you a percentage or a number but they would even ride with heart bags and swap them like you just said though be able to do both and that gives our customer good soft and hard option so taken that step a step farther and we've had our engineer look at that plate and we've made it so that we can adapt to more of the manufacturers specifically we've looked at the wolfman the endurance stand the giant loop moscow of course and think those were the primary ones we can targeted. But there's enough holes in our little adapter plate now that you should be able to mount whatever soft bag. You're looking to mount adapter plate. If that's the route you want it to go. My two thousand eight gs the one that most people recognize me on that one had the the regular hard pans. And when things i love about jesse luggage is just there. The narrowest of the hard luggage with the greatest volume. It's a great product. That way. And i wanted that really narrow rack. The wider. you are here. We go out and we fight to get narrower bike smaller bikes when go places than we have these these massive boxes hanging off the back of the bike and that always annoyed me. But with the twelve hundred i was able to easily mount the moscow pox onto that i took off the rubber bumpers and then mounted the puck straight up and everything was good to go. I had the. I was lucky enough to have seen years ago. That jesse had made a a lowering kit for the exhaust and the twelve hundreds. You could drop the exhausted and really maximize the luggage on both sides..

"Free benadryl was another interesting one that somebody mentioned recently yeah. I've never never heard that one. I just made a note of that. That's awesome now. Have you dealt with any altitude sickness We're when we talked about the bdr's through colorado. You're going to be over fourteen thousand feet. I'm going into nepal. Those those are not insane. Altitudes were only going to be up around. I think our maximums thirteen thousand. But also when i was down in south america we camped at sixteen thousand feet down in bolivia and we had coca leaves. We could always been coca tea our great but we don't exactly have coca leaves laying around most of the time here in the states when he recommended you have a recommendation being from the northeast. We really don't have tall mountains out here I don't have experience with altitude sickness. The one time that i did get to high altitude was doing the tat last year going through the colorado passes and riding some bits and utah which were above ten eleven thousand feet but the only time i felt short of breath is when we went over imogene pass and it was over thirteen thousand feet and we were really working to get to the top. I just felt a little lightheaded and little short of breath but yet we didn't spend a whole lot of time up there. That's for sure so you know like oh take a picture. Let's get the hell out of here. I don't have a whole lot of experience without the toot sickness. Altitude sons bash. We don't necessarily think that we're going to be affected. I was down when we were down.

"So here's the question for you since you get you. Get into the question. What do you pack when you carry. If you had somebody come up to you and say look adventure writer. I'm gonna go out and take that first day class. I'm gonna go take him out during class or by a book and just study up on this. What are you going to recommend kerry if they are going out doing some of the the bdr's backcountry discovery route or attack or a similar type of adventure in maybe northern mexico. Canada young north america. What what would you suggest keeping their kit. Would you buy one. would you build one. what would you do. I would buy basic kit and then upgrade it most of the kits the adventure kits are pretty good these days and they're becoming more and more refined and of course they give you the full list of what's included in the kit. A nice three inch by six inch by five inch zippered. Pack is pretty nice. You can stuff a lot of extra stuff in there. I carry most of the basics. Bandages triangle bandages. You can bandage arms and immobilise limbs scored for splintering. I carry of course gauze. I carry saline solution as riders. Sometimes we get things in our is dust so a packet of saline solution is good. I carry a sam. Splint which is Aluminum covered with foam at carry. The long one. So that's good for mobilising and splitting and you can use these things for all sorts of things. I carry fifty feet of twine. I carry electrolyte tabs for treating people who are dehydrated. I carry honey sticks for diabetics. Certainly lots of nitrile gloves to keep your fluids separate from my fluids. I also carry a blood clot bandage. There's lots of cases of adventure writers getting skewered on sticks and all sorts of things. So you never know when you have a puncture that you wanna stop the bleeding so you know a good blood clot bandage as well and most of that. You could fit in a relatively small space. And that's that's pretty much what i carry and i think that covers most of the basics and i think the challenge for me is when i have a larger group. What exactly will. I need when i need all of it and so i don't have to carry everything all the time. I just want the things. I need when i need them. Of course always the the whole and for international stuff and even local jury affair bid of pharmaceutical all over the counter. I don't carry anything that i'm not authorized to have and i did a blog on this. Somebody goes to the website. They'll find it. And i created a menu of drugs and turns out when you go to the drugstore. And you look at all the different stuff for your headache. And what if. I have a head again in era. And what if any go on down the line that all of these are just combinations of a few basic drugs in was i decided what the amount was in each combination and i wrote that down going events this element. This is the combination that the the manufacturers put out there and create a menu. So that i carry the basic drugs or tylenol the just these core drugs and then depending on the element. I mix them the same way that the suitable companies do and that seems to work very very well and traveling international. One thinks that riders may not recognize one some of the drugs. You may put in your kit. That you think are nothing special can be a big deal if you go in the wrong country. A one of those hydrogen there are countries that you might as well be going across the american border carrying cocaine. The same thing you'll end up in prison seriously..

"Are you going to be successful. Are you gonna get injured trying to go. Get help as help gonna come back. In time. weighing the value of somebody's life is very difficult. And if you're the one that has to make that decision it's a very personal decision and for me personally. I'm not sure. If i would make the decision to leave an unconscious patient in the wild and try and go get help as you're so fond of saying it depends it depends on yes on so many different factors in my an hour away from the town that we just passed the my fifty miles from anywhere. Am i in the middle of mongolia. And it's two hundred kilometers to nowhere. It really depends on the situation. These are the questions that people have to weigh in their headers. Are they ready for that. Can they deal with that. Because you know what. I mean we yeah. We have to accept that. This is an inherently dangerous thing that we do well. Obviously it's inherently dangerous but none of us want to die for it. I know what things i. I teach writers and and this was true for on road as well because a lot of the paved roads than untrained writers. For not just talking. The offroad i looked into when will help come in. And if you have to know that if you stay here they're going to die. If you leave and get help they might die. Thus that hold triage thing of going go to guaranteed they die or do i try to get help and the things that i brought up to people's go up. Here's the thing that makes mountaineering or wilderness or adventure. I stay so different when i'm doing basic first aid on the street. I have three to five minutes before. Somebody shows up for help when i call them. We're out on the trail. It may be hours. It might take me hours just to get out to get a cell service. Never mind get the actual help if it takes me two hours out. That's two hours back for me. Knowing where they're at and rescue may take even longer.

"May find these things work very well but like you said. The opinions are varied. There's a lot of them and that's dangerous. In fact there was that. Because i'm in the motorcycle industry. We typically believe that if we are riding the first six months of writing or the first year of writing is when we are the most everest in the states there was a study done in the late seventies. Early eighties called the hurt study. And that's the one. Nick kinda was the original basis of all the training here in the in this country that show that that was the case. And that's what's been taught to people but david huff great writer. Bright some fantastic books. I recommend if everybody knows it's h. U g h but it's pronounced huff. He's a here world-renowned as proficient motorcycling he dug into those stats a little bit and he found that there was an error in that they in fact there was more accidents at twenty four months than there was within the first year. Everybody else kind of wrote that opposite anomaly but he posted that in his book and he pulled it out of her study. And i referenced that quite often because what that tells me is that we are. We've become complacent. We stopped questioning. What's going on and that's one of those things we have opinion will guide the first six months. Well i don't know there's more information out there. Maybe it's something else. Maybe that's not. Just the only thing would these opinions we have to be looking at. What's the source. What's the background of the source. What's their reasoning for offering those opinions back to my recommendation. If somebody's looking for training if they're looking should they listen to buy. I always say ask that person. A question that draws heavy opinion asked them about a motorcycle type asked them about tires asked them about something that people form opinions about and if their answer is well. The best tire is or will the motorcycle. You need is then you can discount most of their opinion because the answer should be will that depends and if they don't ask you questions before they give an answer back. It's not an opinion. That's based on your needs. Specifically and i can tell you the best motorcycle is you're on a a ktm seven ninety as as well. That's the best motorcycle out there. And it is certain situation with the certain rider it. That's true but another situation might be twelve hundred gs or an africa twin or the temporary seven hundred or maybe it's a sierra to fifty honda. The best bike is going to be variable..

"What is the best compliment to you as an instructor as a trainer to someone or from someone out the the best compliment to me. I'll give you an actual story last year. My wife and i had planned to go down and just spend three months in columbia. We ended up only being there for about a month. And while i was there we made an arrangement to do a presentation and do a ride in bogota. We imagine well. Of course. I share this on facebook and on whatever media platforms. I have them to go out and do this. This little talk and had six travelers from north america that were on their trip. And they all modified their routes and their traveled dates and they're arrangements to be in bogus. Aw that day for my talk and of those half of them were former students of mine and the other half were people who just had seen me on youtube because at the time i was only doing the the motor trek stuff. I just pulled the plug on that the stories. They told me about their travels. And how the things that i had shared with them made a difference. One of the travellers sat down and said i'm only writing an adventure bike. Because i ran across video on accident and it inspired me to do that. I'd never thought about travel. Never mind writing these bites in here. I am in in columbia with you in boga tidy was really excited. That is the greatest compliment. That is what. I realized that. I am truly touched. Somebody's life that. I have made their life better that i've created a dream that they never had or help them fill a dream that they didn't think was possible. Nothing inspires me more. It's not worth much if people don't go out there and apply it and that's probably the hardest thing isn't it because i have an idea of hard certain things should happen. And it's based on experience that i've had in my life before and i feel i want to share that experience to make someone else's life better as a baseline thing. Would you agree that. I use that and go out and apply what they've learned themselves. I mean that's probably the best way to approach this kinda thing. Isn't it to some degree. Yes no timmy way. I'm going with this. They so many opinions out there. And i think sometimes just.

One particular video was on twelve and you broke down very steep uphill in a very simple way for people to understand what it is. That's physically happening to your body to yourself and what it is that you need to in to get out. One of the challenges between being a great writer or being. A great trainer is being able to articulate. What's happening and recognize what's happening. And that i think is one of the challenges for riders who want to become very good or they aspire to be as good as they can be because obviously the end. There's the so called talent.

But you watch these people and you just go. Yeah i'm not ever gonna do that. I could appreciate the talent of writing this adventure by doing a whealy as far as you can see but it's never something i'm going to accomplish and nor do i find it something. That's very practical. That's one of the things. That changed how i teach in how i trade. I mentioned that become an adventure trainer was an accident. What happened to me. Was i had a local dealership a bmw dealership. Come to me. And say hey. We'd like to run a class for our jess writers. And this is. This is way back before the big thing. Before there was any training schools. It was very few options back then. And it's an. I don't really write those bikes. That's not my thing. So i'll come on. Just you know you do the dirt school. You can ride a dirt bike. Do something for us okay. We'll put something together and we basically did a dirt bike class for these big guess writers and they had a great time. But when you look back at what. We did what many writers are doing now. They don't recognize adventure. Bikes are not dirt bikes. These are very large heavy beast. That probably don't belong most the places we want to take them and although you can ride it like a dirt bike especially with talent. They don't crash like dirt bikes. There's a whole lot more mesko and on there and over the years. What i've done is i've constantly reflected back on. Are we teaching. How are we teaching it. And how practical is this in the real world. And every time. I do a trip every time i travel every time i go to mexico. Every time i go to africa overseas i was a little back and go what were the actual skill sets. I used during that trip and let's break it down to what's most important their stuff. That's fun and their stuff that's important and necessary. So what gives you the greatest amount of satisfaction in all of this..

"Was your voices in my head. And here i wasn't they give me some situation and it got me through and it just excites me that i can reach out and make a difference in people's lives that's what keeps me excited fantastic brilliant stuff. I showed this thing you say. I don't teach people how to cook. I teach hard to be shifts. I mean squat a interesting statement. Like i said i'm very analytical. I like breaking things down to understand. Why the difference between an instructor and a master and most training that we take most classes we take we take it with instructors. They know the material but they are not necessarily of the mature. They don't know the background but they don't know how to change things. They have a formula in front of them. When i was in india a couple years ago. I spent about three months in india going around the country doing training i was released of the liabilities. I have here in the united states. I could experiment and try things of playthings and try new concepts with them. And that's that really helped me grow and part of what i was doing going. We have such a complicated way of teaching people. When i watched people teach. I know this. Because i was taught to teach this way and i have taught this way. I provide a formula. Okay you're going up a hill so when we go up the hill i need to be In front of the bike up over the handlebars is. I go up the hill. And i need to add throttle as i go up the hill and but then i was going well. How far over the handlebars well. How much throttled. I need well. What if the hill has a dip in the middle of what. There's a log in iraq halfway up the hill. And that's where i went. That's a problem because we have a formula. We have a recipe for writing. And that's why. I said i don't want teach people to cook and wanting to be chefs. A chef doesn't necessarily walk it and look at a recipe and go. I need half a cup of flour. I need a quarter cup of sugar. They don't that's not how they cook. They know how everything interacts they know if they had just a little. Bit of a certain spice. What it's gonna do to the entire thing. They don't go overboard. And when i teach people i want to teach them exactly that same way i want them to understand what they do and what the ramifications are in how that works so that you're not thinking i need to move forward and in fact. Oh what does the bike need to do and what happens if i move on the bike and that's where i came up with. The concept of the weight was writer. Because it's it's one target that we're focused on instead of what do i do downhill. What do uphill..
