"Aim is when we're not in the pitcher are that when they're out on their own they'll be able to have the self control to be able to function in a way that they don't end up in prison. I mean that's the bottom line line and so I believe that that You know the discipline that we exercise. Now it's ultimately to save them from the punishment out in the world that is much harsher than anything then than we can give and it it's it's for them to be able to blossom not to break their spirit or anything like that and there's no and as a kid there's definitely Y- I'm very conscious and mindful of that and I quite frankly I hate you. You know I hate it given spankings and and And so I so I think that really cushioned how I went about it so I think that my wife actually ends up being more the disciplinarian than I am just because You you know so it's kind of there and there's also personality with our kids. Our kids are split I have kids. That are very stubborn and are very like me and then I have two that are very gentle and sweet and and more like my wife and I tend to have to discipline the hardheaded ones and yeah then my wife tends to discipline the sweet ones because they have me wrapped around their finger. kind of thing so Yeah yeah very cool. Yeah I go through the same thing myself and I think there's obviously yeah definitely discrepancy between spanking and child and beating a child so I think that and it doesn't always necessarily work have kids like I. I could spank them all day long. It Ain't GonNa Change You. They spanked him once. And that's it. Yeah I mean I have two kids I just say that I'm GonNa make them and then that's it then they've ever done and the other ones it's like we you can see them all day long and it's like okay. This is an accomplished anything. So we're not we're not gonna go that route. Let's figure out what it's about figuring out. How so that? They can learn their lesson in a way that they hey have some sort of pain whether it's emotional physical so that there's a natural consequence of that next time they seek to do the right thing on their own. I mean that's that's that's that's what we want. Is that our kids. When they launch an eighteen going to college that they will be able to Be placed in an environment that. There's going to be tempting them to do things that will have far greater consequences than than any spanking so that they know how to get a hold of their their flesh. I should've from a from a Christian perspective and say you know what I'm not GonNa make that decision because of the consequences of doing that will be far greater than any immediate Instant zinc gratification. That I can get from this moment and so that's that's ultimately what we want and I and I really wish I had that when I was a kid and I did it have it. So yeah well. That's one of the good thing about fatherhood. Is You get a chance to do the things you thought should have been done. You get a chance to do them absolutely And you know I wanted to ask you. It was just 'cause my four or just about the same age as yours Meyer. Thirteen twelve eight and five so my wife and I are the most challenging Transition was going from two kids chance to three that once we had our third kid that first year felt like one long day. What was what was the What would you say the most challenging You know the nomination. Asian of kids Well obviously the the first the first one was terrifying. I remember leaving from where we had her and it was like. They're letting us just take this kid like who do they who who do they think we are. You know like driving away with a car seat going. Oh man there's no like we're the buck stops with us down with this kid and so the the first one was terrifying leaving realizing that you have now been entrusted with this this precious life. The second one was less terrifying. But that like you the the the third one is you have to move to more of a zone defense and and it's it's no longer one on one and it's you know you have to manage the three of them for four. I've realized that you enter into a special fraternity. Anytime I see kids. Parents was more than four kids. It's kind of like there's a special winking going to not in a hey we're in the same boat and and You know you you WanNa keep them alive and it's it's you suddenly start to realize is by the three or four kid mark you know you can have one child and the kid can be perfect and by the time you have four you have kids. They have different personalities and different subsets. These are all four kids from the same family and you realize that good ones have nothing to do with you and the bad ones. Maybe don't have anything to do with you. Also that It kinda breaks your spirit but I I I found that even with four for me is spending one on one time with my kids. And and Ah trying to be diligent about that so about three years ago. My Dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. And so my my relationship with my dad began to. We're we're we're in this this kind of this last chapter of our of our relationship and made me Remember my childhood and so About three or four years ago we have a basically San Diego goals. We have a hockey team. That's in the AHL which is right below the NHL. And so I bought season tickets and so I started taking you know two seats and I rotate through the kids. So that I get one one in time with each kid and and just trying to you know rotate them through the hockey game. So that I'm being intentional about Spending one on one time with each the child as opposed to the whole clan. And so that's been really good for me and just Helping me kind of develop as a dad More of a nurturing funds sort of in a an environment where we can be shoulder to shoulder and and have have I heard one guy say once that quality time comes within quantity of time and so just making sure that. I'm putting quantity of time and with my kids. So that I can find quality moments and and The the quantity of time that I spend with them. Yeah Yeah I love that. Yeah it is just having four kids myself and it's definitely one of the things that I'm super. Observant about is the amount of kind of each individual each one of them individually and making sure that whether it's going to the library to go get a book for me. It's not really much to do with the first of the child now that I'm doing it with like their whole day and it really means a lot to them so It's something that I'm super observant about my in my my own parenthood. Here what do you got coming up. Next what kind kind of goals for yourself Well I I. I'm doing them I I I mean I right now Lord. Well that I'm Gonna I'm holding course where I'm at my church and and just you know if if God has it for me to stay here to re retirement and just in this season I'm very Planted with the with my kids. Just kind of there's a short and fast season I remember when my second daughter was born I I. I brought her to church for the first Sunday and there was an older gentleman at my church and he looked at me with tears in my eyes. And he's like brother she's gone already and I'm like dude. I just brought her home from the hospital. And you're like he's like I. His daughter had graduated from college that weekend. He's like it's over before you know it and it had a huge kind of impacting. So I recognize that this while it seems like we're in the trenches right now That they're they're going to be gone before we know it and so so I'm just is really trying to focus on on realizing how precious life is and how life can change in a moment and and life will change change quickly that You know especially my thirteen year old daughter. It's like Oh man we're like getting high school and you know like I think that you know within four or five years. She'll be transitioning out of the House to a collegiate environment is is You know it's kind of a sad thought it's like no you know. How did that happen so fast? So so I'm just enjoying the moment this season that I have now before it's Before they're all out of the house which will happen quickly. Yeah you may have punk Sean right there and gone with the last thing I liked when I ask I love to ask. All the data got on the PUCK is what type of advice you half of that new father or that about the be dad. WHO's out there listening? Oh what kind of advice you know I'd say it's to the father's I'd probably just say it's GonNa be okay. I encourage them to work hard. Provide for your kids leads Don't also at the same time don't don't don't succumb to the rat race of this life You don't like I see a lot. The Dow just killing himself trying to provide you know the the the sport I feel like sports has changed from when I I don't know I'm forty five and when I was younger it seemed like sports where for enjoyment and now it's I. It seems that sports has almost catapulted into a new new category. Where they're traveling they're doing all sorts of stuff? The parents are killing.

"You're a former navy seal. NFL after so what type of discipline when it comes to being a dad so I So so the ad that I was also an extremely extremely abused kid so the last time I saw my my biological mom has passed away but the last time I saw her as when I had to testify against her in court at eleven years old and so so I I I do believe discipline lax at our in our culture today in large part I do think that Discipline is also misunderstood good I think as kids get older like I feel that. I'm having to use corporal punishment less and less these days but for for me like making my kids I do believe in spanking my kids But I think a proper proper quote unquote spanking is is rendered and love and clarity and ultimately leads that. You're not having to Spank your kids anymore. and and so for me when my kids were young and as an spanking what it meant was nobody was angry they. We talked through why they were getting a spanking then when when they when when they were able to answer why they were getting a spanking to swats. We're given and then immediately after the two swats were given they're calling right into my lap and I pray for them. Tell Them I love them and that we're all good and then we move on and and so What I see? See what I've seen a lot of Environments you know you go to the mall and you see basically a parent that loses their minds and they basically. We are unleashed on their kids that that's not disciplined that's not A. There's no instruction there there's no guidance there's no there's no purpose in that that's just a that's just an individual losing their mind aligned and and provoking their kid wrath as well and and so.

"That I feel like guys have been free to practice. Whatever they want With that I mean it's it's ah a high octane. You know we you know we believe Alpha males are like they're the weakland's is like extreme Alpha male context and and it's an environment environment where everybody is is harassed and so So if if you're walking whatever your faith is you're going to be harassed with your faith and if you're an atheist and you're really into to whatever you fill in the blank you're going to get aroused for that and so It just the nature of the beast as we like we we express love. How's Bhai by tearing into one another and so So the guys that are strong in the faith or strong faith and they're gonNA they're gonNA take a ribbon for being strong in their their faith and guys that aren't don't have any faith that are in other things they're going to take a ribbon for whatever they're in so i. I do think that were were changes. The context of You know pre nine eleven. We were invincible. And and It was it was just a different mindset. We we have lost many good men and lost a lot of personal friends ends over the course of the last however many almost twenty years and it's been since nine eleven happened and so the the the. The posture changed changed when when we started taking more casualties. And so I think guys are a little bit more There's a there's a more serious note about faith and and religion and I do think that there's been a you know like I. I feel like I know more brothers and the teams that are that are believers now than I did back then but also I wasn't really a believer so it's hard it's hard to quantify that you know so yeah and definitely to that you know I think like you said most of the The guys that are have on. I can't imagine how difficult it must be keeping family mentality together while you're serving the themes because it seems like. It's you know such a highly dedicated job that you have to have so much focus on and I know that the marriage the divorce rate in the scenes is pretty high and I and I would imagine that the big part of the reason why You know you were able to disassociate your just get away from the teams to focus on the family. Yeah but at the end to push back on that there are there. There are many guys who are successfully married and have good families and have been faithful to their wives like a ton of guys have and and to the the men that I look to with positive outlooks on their marriage and family life in light of the extreme demand of traveling. And what they're doing is is that the team guy wife is a special breed. There are some very tough and resilient ladies and so you know I am able to Even in my life I'm I'm been able to be the husband and Dad because my wife is is exceptional and and there are You know I'm not gonNA name names but I I can. I can think of dozens and dozens of these team. Guy Wives that are just exceptional women that can hold the family together and are resilient and and then have to NASA the about them that that is on par with their husbands and so I do think for any successful marriages as marrying well and not letting your passions get the Dasa of you and and really you know selecting a quality spouse means you.

"Wife and I I'm trying to think of the year I forget the year I was still the navy. She got a pregnant and then we we lost that baby miscarriage and so that that that was probably where my my perspective changed. we We we lost a baby. I think before that there was a lot of apprehension about becoming a dad worries concerns then my wife got pregnant and then you know then you then everything everything kinda emotionally changes with us on they get excited about it and the thoughts of all that could be kinda surfaced and then Then we we lost the baby and and it took us so if my oldest daughter is thirteen I think so that was right. He's sixteen years ago so it took us about to to cover about three years before she got pregnant with our first daughter. And so we didn't we did it. No they maybe we weren't going to be able to have kids and so I think that losing the first child all sort of Shaped my you know my perspective of kids that their blessing and and so then we had our our oldest and we're super grateful. We didn't know if we're going to have another one three years later than another one came. We were super grateful for that one. Then the third one you know oh about three years later a boy came and and then shockingly eighteen months after that we had the arrival of of our last Our last son and so I You know I'm not answering questions but I think I'm grateful for children. I think they're super huge blessing. And I I do think our our our culture and in society has has lied to people about the expense and inconvenience de children are But they're huge blessing in I'm I I just super grateful to be a dad. Yeah very well said. I think you're right. There is one of the number one thing that I say that people say when I tell them I have four children. They look at me like I had Six heads and they're like. Oh Wow you know they look at me like I'm a Rockstar. Like how could you ever afford that net and it's They say I could never afford a you know a child right now and I'm just I. I don't really know how to respond. Sometimes I just say well. That's not the truth. That's just the way that you're seeing and it's not that you can't afford it. You're just telling yourself that you fan so I it's kind of sad to hear so many of the different perspectives. That especially the young men have What fatherhood and family life is really all about absolutely now becoming a pastor? was that something that you intervened before you joined teams or the Navy or is that something that came during your service your during my service. I I was not I was not a religious guy at all I made it through training and after training Checking into seal team three on June twenty third of nineteen ninety five on on July second. I had a I basically got drunk went out drive in at twenty years old and how to resist innovating arrest and kind of over the course of the next eighteen months I lost my security clearance and ultimately got it back but during during that window my life kind of fell apart and I had a friend that was a Christian and so he he doc may go to church a bunch and I. I finally conceded that I would go once and I went once and and through that time I You know I I accepted Christ as my savior and and then began the journey of trying to figure out how did being a navy seal and being a Christian fit together and ultimately for my a master's I my thesis was on the Christian combat and and really helping guys My my one of my passions is helping people who who carry arms arms to protect people how to how to reconcile the use of force and their faith and so. That's you know I was not a Sunday. They school kid growing up at all. Yeah I think that's one of the biggest questions that I would have to. I mean I've had other seals on the show Eddie. Ten who who Found Christ and became. Ah changes life around too but it's it is one of those things like. How do you help the justify Especially military service members about thou shall not kill while being you you know about I. Yeah well you you hit you hit on a you. Know One of the the cruxes There's a different the you said Thou shall not kill. It's actually not murder and murder and killing are two different Hebrew words from that text and so so there's There's there's there's a difference between murdering somebody and and justifiable like self defense or taking the human life in a different circumstance. So so there's so I do think that there's a there's a there's a misconception as Argument carries over to Romans Thirteen the first four verses there I talked about that God. God has established the Authority to protect society from evildoers. And it doesn't bear the SORTA in vain and so the the heart of it is those that are anybody nobody that serves and from law enforcement to the military When they're doing it they're not representing themselves? They they they stand for the authorities that are over them and so they a They function in the capacity of administrator administering justice for for the government and so in most cases especially law enforcement they use of force says always in in protection of their own life or the protection of another's life The military it it gets more complicated For for a thirty minute phone interview but Within the context of the United States every soldier every law enforcement if they don't function according to Really the judeo-christian ethic that our nation was founded on. They will be held accountable. And there's there's plenty of law enforcement officers and plenty of military in jail and prison for for Not Not using force in accordance with law if that makes sense Yeah no I can only imagine the the difficult battles I must take place on. You know your inner conversations with people that I just WanNa. I'm very grateful for the Veterans Law enforcement or all these people that have many women that that put their lives on the line to protect us because it must be a very difficult battle and I do too. I think under a long. I talked about on the PODCASTS. A lot about the fatherless problem we have if there's an attack on the family life in this country and I think that combined with the fact that God has been removed from so much of our school system in our society. I think those two factors alone are responsible for creating most of the problems that we have and it makes I mean I agree with you within the within the teams. It's it's pretty well known that most most those most of the guys in the seal team's while we all have different stories. It there's an. There's an overarching theme. That many of us do come from broken families and find our our families within the seal teams and and those men tend to be the men that shape us and I think through my time growing into manhood in the seal teams from the men there that poured into my life. They Kinda it taught me how to become a dad and ultimately that's why I I left the service at twelve years eight years from retirement because Because I have such a fractured family tree and background. That I often said You know I'm okay. Messing up everything my life and failing it everything but the one thing. I don't want to fail out as my marriage and and my being a dad and so for me that that that meant walking away from the teams eight years from retirement so that I could be home and present with my family even if there was some You you know. Maybe there's some financial fears of of walking away from of You know a full military retirement For the sake of Investing and my kids. And you know I've been out now for twelve years and I've been fine and I'll be at every there. was you know the the risk I ended up not being as great as the reward of being able to be around for my kids and my wife. Yeah Yeah that's awesome gone right and what. What about in deal teams? Is there any type like Is Religion Something that's like Not Not talked about in the teams or is it like everybody's welcome to practice their religion as they are the kind of thing that kept quiet among among the team guys I mean obviously over the last. You know this this war has been going on for for some time now and things have shifted and so I think.

Let's go south africa nearby salads woman zipper. We talked about earlier and i was walking in the middle of the road on the main street. It was fairly well. Listen it was almost almost midnights and suddenly two guys dumped. They dumped me and manage to to you know push me pull me. They have a taser gun. You know get me into too dark side. I i've been thinking about this if i'm ever going to be robbed. I'm just going to give up everything you know. I'm not here to die treasure life and all the rest of it but it's it's my instinct told me otherwise so i started fighting back and i'm never been a strong in my life due to adrenaline cake or whatever and as i fought these two guys and modernised honest to drag them back into the lights of the main streets and <hes> then when they were in the street and they lied again they ran away managed to steal my my phone and my my shirt was totally ripped and i was very shaken and it was so stupid you know if they had a knife or or a real gun i would probably not have been here and even then you know. I've been thinking about this for for for a little bit. You know many many times uh-huh you know attacks. I should just give up everything right. It's not it's not worth losing life or dollars any waller's fine until i fought very super but i mean it's yeah it's easy to say it's easy to think about those things when you're kicking back at home or whatever you're in your guest house whatever ever but then when it goes down on the how you're gonna react right up but you have been to every country in the world two times four times <hes> the only two fed and i mean maybe not the knife incident but certainly the robbing can happen at home true. I mean gene. We're in norway in oslo is very safe country and we're my wife used to live her friends walked out of pearl department and got robbed right outside of role department hit on the head and robbed and all that can happen any can happen yeah. That's how has all this traveling changed your relationship to your home country of norway very interesting to see your home country from a different perspective so we are both the united states a new way are within what i call call the western bubble and to see the western bubble from the outside and to realize that you <hes> because most people know about the united states but no i a lot of people don't even i've never heard about a new way and probably had about europe. That's not necessarily bad your country and it's like wow regardless. That's where you're from. You might be from rhonda or burundi or you might be from katie baths or powder gu. I wherever on you will you will consider your village. Your town on your country asked the center of the universe. That's just the way it is. That's where you bone. That's where you race home. When you grow up that's what you know and you will look at everything in the world from that perspective and realizing that made me think that lau so new walt norway's not the center of the universe this they haven't even heard about the country. They know nothing about it. They might think it's village or town or or you know same way. Some of the countries you've mentioned today we haven't heard about and those people that are thinking the same thing exactly <hes> it's it's really eye opening thing and it's it's very humbling in many ways to to realize that you know of course they look on themselves that their country their culture the religion their faith whatever us the right way or the best way whatever and i'm not a position. I don't think anyone is in positions as i oh my ways better or my religion is best for my cultures better. Mike food is better in might be might not be. It's different for sure. Let's just leave it at that. It's different right and then if you think about it okay well you might not agree but here at least you know be be humble enough to let them speak and explain nine that might actually open up some doors might give you some new ideas and might make you understand might make you think differently and then you take that back home. I'm anne you think about it and you might learn a hell of a lot you will learn a lot and that's one of the beauties of travel i once i was interviewed by norwegian newspaper by one of the biggest in norway and one of the things i said is that no travel is the best education and world and then i was approached by a high school student here annoy and she l. stiffs. You can have a cup of coffee with me at work invited her to to the county not broadcasting and you know and she said well. I read that into a and i totally agree. The travel is the best education in the world so when i finish high school i'm just going to travel. I'm never going to college and oh no no no. That's not exactly what i meant. Please please please go have education just travel as well yeah yeah so that was clearly misinterpreted very willingly. Hey from oregon's okay what happens if you're listening to check in when you're exposed to all these different cultures as an ideas and perspectives and things then you come back to your own culture. Have you found it at times like harder to fit in or has it always been like a seamless transition just to come back from some grand things that you've done and just kind of slip right back into it or is it like. Is it like slipping back into something that's unfamiliar. You're in the get familiar with it again. Like what is that like for. You know i mean this is my home. This is where i have my family. I've lost my friends here. Of course i often meet new friends but still this is what i'm used to at the same time it gives me pause different perspective. I everything in perspective and that's really valuable. It makes me think in different ways when i'm back home and i really like it at home. I really enjoy new way as a country little bits. It's a annoying some of the people here you know. Everybody can say that about their own country worry. I don't know where to to shy. Maybe but at the same time i do enjoy norway a new way and i'm very restless best and lots of energy. I know you're not guy right now. You're traveling around the girl twice every country sometimes after week or two weeks or months they also like oh. I have to go somewhere and it's not because i don't like it. Here is because i hate my friends or my family. It's it's because it gives me so much to to see the world through different glasses if you like to experience different cultures and try different foods and even if i if i've been to places before then you notice you notice new things changes right and sometimes you know there are no changes might be subtle thing in the atmosphere might happy new buildings very physical things. You might not so been nine years since i've been here. They've really started. You know it's really started improving. Hey no let's poor. People no slums anymore perhaps and so on so usually you see positive changes and of course you you met people before so you come back and me re revisit them so i was really valuable to to have have friends in so many countries around the world yeah this this area we're in right now toy and is an example of that. It's changed a lot over the years. I've found like just really yeah. Neighborhood's changed cities are was evolving but i think we can tend to just let's get back to a physical place like our hometown or something and just always think of it as the same because we spent our childhood there say for example but it's of course it's not the same place. It's twenty years his older older forty years over whatever the case is so. It's a it's a different place but i think i think so much travel helps. You see that a little bit differently. You mentioned norwegians being shy. What is it about that that bums you out. Donald bummed out about that. I mean by that the antelope over thing we were talking about that a little bit before the interview. Is that what you're talking about or area. I'm not bummed. Isobars is more like jokingly but yeah we are being perceived achieved by lots of people abroad as being aggressive or not. Maybe not aggressive but arrogance were if we don't know people we don't we don't tend to say hello version of politeness though right from what i understand slight not bothering people it's kind of like you're being polite and stay out of the way the way that's that's the way we're thinking about it. We're not it's not like a bad intention. No no about into now. That's what i'm saying when people are complaining but he region but you're not so arrogant oregon and i said no no no we're not. We're you know we're just trying to say is you way back makes us lose out on so much because we don't meet people you know. We don't don't have that welcoming small very often. Unfortunately to people and that is so sad. I mean it's totally free smile and his show to study have no bad intentions. You know you're you're here in peace and people should smile more and say hello yeah doesn't mean that you know you're gonna talk to someone someone for an hour but it's.
"gunnar" Discussed on Zero To Travel Podcast
"Well. You can't do nab certain okay but there are still no there are no. It's okay okay. This is funny if you go to fiji which is much more better ester known and visited tourists so it's not in my book but they have accountable museum. There might actually have a national museum. They have their. We're gonna accountable section in the museum of course they <hes> and then the last person who was eastern he was he was a british guy. There was nothing left of him so the only thing they find what's his shoes kind of eight the rest right so shoes are also wow sixty seven okay yeah it should be. It should be well. I mean i guess when you're getting down to the twenty lease visit a destinations as you are probably going to encounter some some things along the way right so those three three sort of island nations since i guess that you would highlight whether any other dads to that list as well you have a five other countries to kid about your <hes> so you have marshall islands and the micronesian federation pacific. They're all worth visiting and you can get there fairly easily. From from the united states you have the so-called island hopper that's flown by united that goes from louis and to to marshall islands and anti renisha federation and from there you can relatively easily visit to the other this but as i said sometimes there there are a few days between flights. You might <hes> decide some time yeah. I know there's a probably small percentage of people that are interested in traveling to maybe war torn countries or some of these more dangerous places and i'm u._b. Probably aliyah mistake on my part. If i didn't ask you about what it's like to travel to some of those places a list you mentioned when you broken up into two of the twenty and and i'm just curious how that works logistically i guess traveling to those countries and i just wanted to hear some experience from the grounds because chances are in who knows in your lifetime how things will go but i'm not probably going to any of those places anytime soon so this is my chance to hear what it's like. No i mentioned yemen where i used to fix so typically. You should know someone on the ground. I mean of course i never know maybe also of course there are some people out. They actually they. They seek the frontier where you know. There was fighting. I don't do that. You know i you know i i try to say saif i they ask people on the ground and i tried to get advice and you know i'm not. I'm there to experience things. I'm not there to sue die right so typically find someone local guests advice good way to do that is via social media or we might be in your hotel in the post you ask oscar grant to to these countries are so few visitors that if you approach people and say hey i'm visiting as a tourist festival will probably think you're crazy. Is you know officer officer. After a few seconds i would think that'd be quite on the that's reading is but generally you're finding that people are surprised and honored isn't that and and they're very curious so this is kind of their chance to they might not be able to do a lot of traveling. It's absolutely nothing when when you know we are very lucky we we have. We're from high income countries. We have strong policies. We can actually travel yeah and then you think about and people are inviting us to weddings and dinners hikes and boat trips and all the rest of it and then you think about it and we post this on social media denver so proud when getting many logs and look what i did in my holiday this with some locals and stop to think wow don't you think those people that took us devos in writers those things those experiences don't you think they would like. Did you travel as well yeah and most of them would but you know that you know they're not they. Don't wanna have you by conscience. You know talking about since you know. I met this one guy in costa rica and he told me you know i'm really inspired by all the traveling all the rest of it. I only wish i could do as well. You know i'm never going to be. I'm never gonna make enough of money so if travelling doesn't humbly as a person. I don't have anything anything will definitely we're thinking about. We are very very lucky to be able to travel to different countries and i think that's that's very important to keep in mind yeah and then when it comes to traveling you know even afghanistan john somalia south sudan yemen or these countries they have safe zones so she can actually visit a word and country if you want to on be safe are relatively cypher even very safe afganistan. You have a province. That's called bamian which is considered only saif province in afghanistan in some ways. It's the only place where there tourist office for instance and it's being visited by thousands of locals ghani's every year. Okay okay you know it's a beautiful area safe very few weapons elsewhere in afghanistan and the weapons everywhere. You'll see military vehicles everywhere so he's also a break. Mike and we're seeing that more and more westerners are going there as well to even skiing and see to to hunt for archaeological sites and you know explore archaeological okay logical sites and very green and all the rest of so you can always find somewhere almost always you know but i don't recommend people who hasn't really travelled much to to make were ridden country. There faster nation you know is the same as with anything else baseball football soccer singing. You know you're not going to be world champion the first day you try something. It's about practice travel as well so you know salt local and and gradually expanded paris than make you wait afghanistan just like that. I've no anchor. I guess for what it's like to be in war-torn country like that and i mean even when you're in the safe zone. I guess you're you're still with local so you're getting a sense of what that is. I mean what is it like. What is the vibe in afghanistan for example. Is it just kind of hey. We're just beat down all the way like this. This is constantly happening or january. People just living their lives and people alert generally living their lives in kabul the capital city of afghanistan almost five million people. It's a fairly big city. I mean there. There's many people there are or and tire no way so i was there and there was there was a bomb blast so it was a terror acts of terror and fifty seven people died and i also people you know a friend friend of mine gala leon ask him. How can you live like this since well. It's life. We're not going to terrorists. Make them win. We're not gonna make them dictate. How we're going to our lives so we take our precautions. You know we look for hidden unusual objects or people that i've live suspiciously we avoid typically avoid big accused and stuff like that but other than that you know we live our lives normally and we're never gonna win win and then he said something and then you have to you have to be good in statistics as it what what six or even the very sad events events today. Fifty seven people died right. It's in a city of five hundred people look at how many people die in the country five million or you know in a city of five hundred people in traffic accidents and i don't know in bike gun wounds whatever else you know being hit by cars or and so it adds up so you have to look at statistics very very unlikely that is going to hit you and it is a valid point valid point for us travelers. You know yes the only thing we hear the only things we hear about from afghanistan and south sudan and somalia if anything is about bomb-blast dumbass tara and then that was one of the reasons i wanted to write this book was to give a voice to normal people from unusual countries right people. You never hear anything about it. Because the only thing you only hear anything about these countries it's bum blossom and death and an awful things and you never hear about the normal people they have kids there. They have schools restaurants. Everything is normal to sutton degree right. You know we perceive these countries very abnormal dangerous awful nasi osu places because the only thing we hear only things we hear about are are negative things to certain degree to to. I think about this being that gentleman you referred to probably a very a very enlightened thing to do right in his position like his things are going on all the time and just to remember oh hey this is not the majority of what's happening and still having that positive outlook and <hes> like you said for travelers to remember that i think it's good because it dispels the fear of a travel really when you keep that in mind but that's not to say that like like you said you shouldn't take precautions and be smart about things but with a twenty four seven media cycle it does make very difficult to like almost almost like you have to take make a conscious effort and do your research and kind of be on top of it yourself to remind yourself that hey the world's it's not so bad. I mean as a travel you know that to go in it but even still like. I haven't been traveling a ton lately so it's not like i forget that but you see all this terrible stuff in the news as in you have to remind yourself. Hey the places. I bet you see people are just living their lives. They want the best for their children. They want a roof over their heads and food and all the basic things that everybody wants and that's just the way it is everywhere. It's no human being. It's quite funny. Though because travel is being perceived as dangerous per se everything now you know whenever you travel. I travel our mothers or parents or siblings. Whoever sure be careful be safe right. Yeah on on anything can happen of course but this is also the notion if you travel about you know you have to be safe because that's perceived as dangerous then beloved who i told you from kabul you i stayed within his house very very generous and very hospitable guy journalists there. He traveled apple to you to to germany april. This april worry now facebook friends feed and everything and he posts a picture from from hamburg germany and all this have gone in friends in word and country on his wall posting be safe right right right well. A colleague from afghanistan. Traveling are safe because being at home is considered safe. Being on the road is considered. That's the news. That really blew my mind. How insane that kind of says it all right. It's just nature for a lot lot of it comes from love to you know i mean of course your mother. Whoever is they just don't want you to get hurt but then they don't say you're getting in the car driveway like be safe. I'm just you're driving the grocery store because obviously most accidents might happen in a car different things but you know it's funny the things we focus on but that's that's a great story. Area love the heads of the so yeah. Just being in germany be safe. I need that anyone says we're on the topic of safety and you've been many places many times. Have you had any sort of situations that were dicey wine somalia once and it was about something as far as a fight over who is going to sit in front of the car of the share taxi terrible fighter physical fight now. How is it almost on into physical fights but this friend of mine is.

The return of wolves to Yellowstone Park
"Problem since ancient times, they've been portrayed fables and legends and the bible as fearsome voracious predators. The story of the big bad wolf may be the most memorable. And frightening of all the fairy tales told by the brothers Grimm that grim reputation actually produced a very real result in America in the early twentieth. Century wolves were wiped off the landscape trapped poisoned and hunted until there was not a single one left in the American west when the National Park Service decided to bring wolves back to Yellowstone park in the nineteen nineties it followed a bitter debate between wildlife groups who wanted them restored. And ranchers who most definitely didn't two decades later, the wolves of Yellowstone still stirs strong emotions, but they've also had an impact that almost no one saw. Coming. In the dead of winter Yellowstone park is a beautiful, but forbidding place howling wind subzero temperatures, six feet of snow. Just finding enough food survive is a profound struggle for every animal waterfowl bison, elk foxes. They all have to work for every morsel. Yellowstone was the world's first national park. Founded in eighteen seventy two and remains one of the most visited millions of people come here every summer, but they used to pretty much leave it to the wildlife in the winter until the wolves came back behind the treatment. Now reports of a wolf citing can produce a traffic jam along the one fifty mile stretch of road. The park service keeps opening the winter. Visitors with spotting scopes gather in absolutely frigid weather for a momentary long distance view Bellevue came from Germany to see wolf, Doug. Smith runs the Yellowstone wolf research program for the park service. And no one predicted. This would happen actually we indeed the appeal of coming in to see the wolves. Yes. And it truly has been amazing and hundreds of thousands of people a year, we estimate come here. Justice sequels. Tourism pumps thirty five million dollars a year into the local economy much of it spent in the winter, which is prime wolf watching time we've seen flows all three days we've been out Glenn. My is a retired FBI agent from Arlington Virginia. Kathy lumbar is a retired cop from New Hampshire. They both paid an outfitter thousands of dollars to take them with watching. So what is it about wolves that bring you all the way out here from New Hampshire to sit out here and just hope for the chance to see them. They've been able to burn wolves back into Yellowstone and they've thrived. So that's just an awesome thing to see. It was January twelfth nineteen ninety five when the first gray wolves captured in Canada were carried into Yellowstone park. It drew both national attention and fierce opposition so much that armed guards were posted to protect those wolves. So the first walls released into Yellowstone park or released rightback here in this thicket. Yes, so total forty one over three years. How many are in the park. Now, we've got ninety six and ten packs, and it's been roughly a hundred wolves the last ten years very stable, those ten packs of about ten wolves each are without a doubt, the most closely observed and studied wolves on earth our goal is to keep touch with each pack. That's our goal. They do that by trying to attach radio collars to at least two wolves in each of the parks packs. So you fly. The airplane. Find wolves in the open that airplane radios, a waiting helicopter on the ground. The helicopter flies out with a gun in the back seat. That Gunnar is almost always Smith himself. And you fly up alongside that wolf, and you should tranquilizing dart into it. Five minutes. It goes down. We process the wolves. We take blood. We measure them we look at their health, and we attach a radio collar, and then we follow them for their life. Hopefully that life by the way typically lasts about five years. You'll Allstone wolves are fears and territorial the leading cause of death is a tax from other wolves. And their look is uncontrollable that look says I ain't going to conform to your rules. And I'll die before I do, and that's powerful. That is a location of a wolf data from the radio callers has helped Smith team to learn volumes about wolf behavior. Folder is by them. It also helps all those wolf watchers. Find them truck service employees. Rick McIntyre is out every day listening for signals that is from a black. Male Wolfram revenues seven and then spreading the word. Did you like to see a gray well of two okay? So it's a little bit right of center. Oh, yeah. Oh, look here comes a whole pack. Wow. To receive you can count the mall. It would be to graze six blocks four five six black ones and the white one that went by in the should be a second gray. How 'bout that? We had spotted the junction Butte pack, along a ridge line about two miles away. Like most packs, it's led by an alpha, male and alpha female, the only two wolves in pack who mate with each other greyhounds, a female is still leading to the right? And you see how the ones behind are playing. She's determined to lead them to the west. They're running along the top right along the real. Yeah. That's magnificent. We can see these wolves from the ground, and it's been a sensation. So we've learned a lot about packed dynamics and personalities and how social they are. What do you mean describe that for me? They won. Wannabe together, their pack animal. So the power of the wolf is the pack. Nowhere is that power more evident than when a wolf pack is on the hunt for elk its favorite prey they worked together because they have to your average wolf weighs one hundred pounds or so, but your average prey animal is much bigger, but below seven hundred fifty pounds a colleagues five hundred so house of roughly one hundred hundred twenty pound animal going to take that down. They do it. Doug Smith says both by coordinating their attack and by zeroing in on Volna, Rable, pray. They're going to take the week. So they're making their living off of calf elk old elk injured, elk without wolves. There was an overpopulation of Elkin Yellowstone as wolves have cut the size of those hurts. There's been an unexpected side effect plants that elk. Feed on have made a comeback which has in turn produced benefits for other species. All the little trees have come back since we'll recover this Goey filled with shrubs has all come back since we'll recovering and the wolves are a factor in all of that very simply put wolves Email elk eat this when the L kit reduced the eat less so beavers and songbirds can respond to the growth in that vegetation. And it's Doug Smith is quick to say that it's not as simple as he just made it sound, but that hasn't stopped some environmentalists from declaring wolves the saviors of Yellowstone's ecology. There's some people who will try to convince you that wolves could probably solve Mideast peace and world hunger. Randy Newberg is a Montana hunter who hosts the TV show and podcast four hunters. He remembers how emotional the debate over reintroduction. In was between wolf haters and wolf lovers wolves are wolves. They aren't the big bad wolf, and they don't have rainbow shooting out there asking like everyone would think they do. There's something romantic about a wolf, right? Bless you've seen it chewing on a live cow. Eric Costa's family has been raising cattle and sheep one this Montana rent for one hundred years. He says he was worried from the moment the first roles will brought back to Yellowstone, which is about one hundred miles to the south. You know, they weren't going to stay in the part. They're wild animal their go or they want to go. I'm sure you knew it was only a matter of time before they were going to get here. Oh, yes. There was no doubt. And there was a set of tracks. Very well cost a new that wolves would follow migrating elk out of Yellowstone and onto his ranch and that they attack his livestock if given the chance he started hiring range writers to watch over his cattle, and he bought guard dogs to help keep wolves away from his sheep live sheep, pay for things. Live cattle pay for things deadwood and stole his defensive measures have kept wolves away from his livestock, but neighboring ranchers have lost both cattle and sheep to wolves. The thing that's never monitored. When I talked to these people is the loss nights of sleep. The nervousness. We'll track on my place today, or I actually saw wolf wolves around you can't measure compensate for that are wolf attacks on livestock, a serious problem. No. It's rare that it happens. But if it's happening to you. It's a serious problem. It was that fear of wolf attacks that drove ranchers and settlers to eradicate them in the early twentieth century after the Endangered Species Act was passed in one thousand nine hundred seventy three wolves were among the first to be listed and a campaign began to restore them to Yellowstone park after that happened in the nineties wolves quickly spread out of Yellowstone and into neighboring states, so many that there are now nearly two thousand in Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho after a long and bitter legal battle, those states finally won the authority to manage and sometimes kill wolves outside the national park has. This management of the wolves helped to lessen some of those passions to calm, some of those emotions I think so so to have wolves you have to kill the wolves and some situations. Yes. The first situation is cut and dried any wolves that attack livestock are immediately killed themselves. I think that's hoped a lot at least with the ranching community and people feel better if they're not powerless to deal with something and then wolves are hunted. There's hunting season on wolves all three states have. So having wolves be hunted has probably increased people's willingness to share the landscape with them two of them. Randy Newberg is living proof of that. He filmed a wolf hunt a few years ago for his TV show. It took him eleven days and one hundred miles of trudging and tracking through the snow. You went out looking. For a wolf and saw how smart they are. How cunning they are how athletic they are. If you wanna increase your respect for world's going chase them out on their landscape, hunters and ranchers and avid wolf watchers. Rarely see I'd y but they know agree on at least one thing. We've got a gray wolves are back in Yellowstone for good. People love this. You know, we live in an artificial world. It's stores and cars and roads and buildings wolves are real and people crave. It they love it. We almost have this thirst for something real now.
