Now That is a bit of trivia that most of us don't realize when they were done with a day's worth of home to home selling. Think of that back in the day of the buggy, the wagon and the buggy. Or the wagon in the horse. Rather, they'd return empty with a successful day of selling their product and back at the riverbank. William again he was the founder. It was William Betsy Arnold would put rocks and empty containers so they wouldn't float away. Then he'd swim the team. And float the wagon and this would save another 50 cents because he already had spent 50 cents crossing over. He wanted to save a little bit of money coming back and the Hayden fairy. I mean, this was because the river was still running before we had it dammed up. So you drive across it on the Mill Avenue Bridge or Haydon Rule Bridge, but that there used to be a ferry across that river. Yes, And most a lot of these cucumbers were grown in Snowflake Taylor area. Which ties in perfectly because our Arizona Staycation is back, and our winner is going to Snowflake Taylor this weekend to stay at the heritage in Left her taking a break for a few months.

Even an English country house, Joe and I suspect you're not from Arizona Originally just based on okay, y'all getting, of course. Of course. Absolutely. Yeah.

Well, they all have their own bathroom where some people When they think of a better breakfast. We have to share a bathroom. No communal bathrooms. I love it. And how about the grounds around the home? We've got a lot of lawn rose bed apple trees. People can relax in the hammock and that we hang up underneath two apple trees, so fountain in the courtyard I look at it is the perfect getaway. If you've been working from home for months, or you've been cooped up with the kids and all that you just want to get out, relax. It's the place to be a Yes, it is. And sometimes people check in and they'll say, Well, what is that to do in the area, and I'm like, Well, how about just relax and they try it and they're like, you know what?

Have you tried all 27 holes in one day? Probably not. I'm not. Maybe I don't know that would be a long day. So for those that want to stay at the heritage in what kind of safety features have you implemented? Naturally, the way we have our BNB setup, we naturally social distance people from each other. We don't make people a one table for breakfast all at the same time, Lee, we separate people out at this time of year. A lot of people eat out outside. We don't really have a big lobby area so people don't mingle. Attend. See that just hang out by themselves outside in their room or they're off doing something. We do take some extra precautions as faras. The keys that we hand out when they turn him in. We hit him with the peroxide mixture that we've come up with. Kills anything that might be on their way. I mean, we expect people to be responsible for themselves. Take care of themselves. Really? So that's the heritage in bed and breakfast in Taylor, Arizona, which is next to Snowflake.

"Recent all right. Here's another one related to the MOA. This comes to us from Nathan. Hey Robert and Joe. I just listened to your recent episode of rise of the MOA. Any were Talking about large birds could kill humans in my mind automatically went to a prehistoric ratae that roamed parts of North America around the same time as the Sabertooth Tiger called Titus while ary now this is by the way you can look up images of this. This is a terror. Bird Office referred to as titanic and indeed the terror birds are amazing to look at Anyway. Nathan continues they roamed throughout the Lower USA impossibly into South America to To five million years ago they stood about two point five meters tall and had great speed which people think was their main hunting strategy along with their sharp beak. This bird has always interests me And thought you all could compare other extinct species to this one. Thanks for your time Nathan. I've always wanted to be eaten by a bird really now. I think we mentioned this in the in the Mo- episodes but you actually have done episodes About the terror birds in the past right. Did you do them back with with Julie years ago? That sounds right. I don't I know I've read about them before but I honestly can't remember if we covered them at all Certainly some kind of topic we return to. Yeah because they're they're they're totally fascinating. And there's the North American connection here. I mean you'll find examples of you'll find fossil evidence of this creature in Florida Which by the way it always. It always kind of amazes me where they'll be some sort of there'll be a fossil like this and you'll think this should be should be the fossil of Florida. This'll be the state fossil but if I'm not mistaken the stateful fossil Florida is is a choral. So they're they're less exciting. Like Georgia has a pretty good one. Cretaceous Shark Tooth. That is our state. Fossil fuel yeah and you know it. It varies from state to State. Some have really cool ones Some have multiple ones like Kansas has both Adriana Don and Tyler Soroush so they have like two awesome creatures will meanwhile Kentucky. It's a BRACCO POD. A little shells right and not to say. These aren't important fossil finds but in terms of like the kind of thing you might plaster on the side of a u-haul truck or put on a license plate. I think he can jazz it up a little bit. I at least encourage that. Apparently every state acknowledges the existence of fossils that is a good sign. None of them have taken aback yet right. Yeah there there are tons of great ones Nevada. You guys have. An atheist are You know new New Jersey as a duck billed. Dinosaur New York has sea Scorpion You know it's a wonderful list. I recommend checking it out. Find out what your state fossil is and if it's disappointing fight for it you know like if you're if you're If you live in Virginia in your state fossil is a scallop. You should. You should be a little mad about that. He should fight for something. Maybe a little more Robusta something with with claws and teeth if you can't I think Tennessee state fossil was a replica of Noah's Ark. Nobody is I'm looking at up now. It is a cretaceous bivalve so okay. So Eagle Welcome. Tennessee might be better off if they had an exciting fossil as their uh their state fossil. Something that would maybe give people more excited about the prospect South Carolina. It's the Columbian. Mammoth for for crying out loud. I I know you're joking. I know you believe that. All fossils are exciting they are. They're all exciting. But I in terms of say animating the kids I think maybe it pays to have something a little a little more action here now I will say Arizona state fossil is of course. The pay is petrified wood off the petrified forest which maybe is not that exciting children but I think that one's pretty exciting so you still get credit for a non animal fossil ahead to this message. We got from Tabitha about the MOA episodes I thought this was was really great. So tabitha writes. Hi Robert.

And all the the good goodies that go along with that. So you know, we gotta have. You gotta have term limits to get these people out of here. So I think part of it is the staleness factor part of it is just seeing the same old politicians part of his they hate politicians. And you know, my response is look at a young corrupt new politician just as bad as an old corrupt new. I mean, that's not the measuring stick. Although I've gotten to the point I've gone to the point. We riot confessed. Ryan also now favor of term limits because that's the only way we get these people out of their men. It's the only way we can get out of here. The system has become like a petrified forest can understand that. And I'm I'm I'm a reasonable. I think individual and so that being said, okay, see below sea. Everyone has a expiration date both in life and in an on the job state forty years probably further than I probably should have. But. Wouldn't be trying to see. Okay. Before we sent her packing or however, they want to do it. Let's get somebody in there capable of doing the job as good or better than her not. So her out with the bathwater and it bring somebody in there. And like you say, it's a knucklehead I mean, I. They're going to be good at the job. They've never done the job before you. Absolutely. So is so let's get somebody. Absolutely. Have her coached him? To be able to be at least as effective. Danny Hoyer, Steny Hoyer has been her deputy for years now, he's an older white guy with white hair. He knows how to do the job if she stepped aside. He could do the job, and there are others who I think quite qualify. Believe roy. I think we're all missing one really important thing. Nancy Pelosi is going to step away. I think in two years, anyway, I think this is her last hurrah. She's been hinting rather broadly that she's about out. So I think that this is basically, you know, her swansong, basically, saying give me two more years as speaker, and I'll retire, and I think that that's really kind of what's going to happen here. She's very good at doing her job. She's very good politician. She's got the votes. I do believe you'll get elected and LeRoy asked to the infighting part the Republicans are going to try picking these fights. And if we fall for we fall for he can't stop the Republicans who talking and you're not going to be able to stop yourself from here. So we just going to have to figure out a mature adult way a deal with if you're on hold. You're next with Justice is served the Norman Goldman.

"Preserving a little bit of Arizona history on route sixty six here with Rosie on the house. You know, it's. It's a shame that it's not what it was once. And I don't think I know that they like to point at the interstate system. I think more than that. It's the fuel efficiency of our vehicles. If you've ever tried to drive across country and a seventies vehicle that gets about seven miles to the gallon, and you have to stop every hundred and twenty miles for gas. You get the reason there used to be so many stops. You know, my f one fifty that's got over two hundred fifty thousand miles on it. It's an wait. I still when I fill it up how four hundred miles to the tank I can get on that. And it just wasn't the need for stopping. It was the efficiency of our vehicles that made the change. I don't think it was as much to do with the interstate system. But we're going to pull off outside a Holbrook today and pull into where Roman rich were you taking us. Poland to inbetween chambers in the petrified forest national park. That's where the painted desert trading posts is sitting right now dormant for the last fifty sixty years and abandoned it's been sitting out there on a section of old abandoned route sixty six that's just north of interstate forty probably about a mile north, and that's what brings me to Holbrook Arizona's myself along with nine other sixty six enthusiasts or the co op and we purchased this property out in desert ranch land in chambers. And there's an old data desert trading post out there in which we are trained to preserve and do somewhat of a light restoration on it to keep it alive for generations of route sixty six enthusiast take us through the history of the painted desert. Trading post. Hey, desert trading post was established by a man the dots. Windsor back in the nineteen forty s just after World War Two, and basically he set up shop and start business right there on the highway if you can imagine or try to relate today like putting a a store right on the interstate today because that's where all traffic was puzzled through just on the eastern doorstep of the petrified forest national park, and he lives there and he operated they're selling trinkets curios jewelry. Blankets pottery, anything you can think of that. The tourists may want. And. This guy was ahead of his time. We look at. In the middle of nowhere. There wasn't power run out there. He had to become his own power generator. He had become on retailer. He had to be even one time and aviator flew fuel concoction chemist. Yeah. That's a cute story as as as a wife would tell all the later interview about an aviator that was waggling his wings. Join them, and that was his wife she had trained in World War Two to be a pilot. So she understood of of the aviators communication. She managed to stop traffic on route sixty six allow this land in a mixed up. Some formula are concoction of fuel to get him up and going again, and there's a video of this on YouTube channel sixty six that shows him taking off from the trading post in an airplane using sixty six as a launching pad so to speak, but yeah, he was out of his time. Windsor manage to create electricity from a wind generator. He also hold water from a well. And they they had everything there you find today. They had the gasoline and food and drinks and all sorts of great stuff that tourists and travelers needed back then as we need today and the gasoline had was for vehicles. Talk about what he had to do to help get this airplane back on in the air. Oh, they'd mixed up a concoction of high test ethanol and some Blazo to come up with some sort of fuel that would get him up and going again, and as joy Nevin tells it she got a postcard later from the islet stating that he made it back home, just fine. I don't know about you. I don't think I'd take off and the nineteen fifties and an airplane with some experimental flu fuel I don't care where I had to get how fast I had to get there. You're on route sixty six I think I'd have just stuck my thumb out and gone to the next give me into flagstaff. I'll get a container a gas in my way back. Well, you didn't you didn't have the knowledge that we have today. So I think there was a better pioneer spirit back then and they just said oh. Well, let's see how far it goes hurt. You know, I I don't know many pilots that would maybe land have an emergency landing and pull into an Exxon Mobil station and go, well, let's give this a try. You know? You said that old pioneering spirit will what's your intent with the restoration. Are you vision that this trading post reopens one day is it a tourist attraction? What's what's you'd mentioned preserving it for the next generation? But what are they gonna come see when they stopped there when you all are done with your work? So a building has been under a barrage of elements that have really cows cattle has infiltrated in damaged walls. It's got cement stucco facade that has gotten so damage that we're looking to try to reduce some that stucco to get that back up to where it was in former glory. We had to raise walls as much as thirteen inches. Some of the courses slumped down on the foundation, but our overall goal is not to reopen it because again, it's interim owed area. There's still no power or electric or anything out there. What we want to preserve it for people tourists to come out in observe and look at so they can see what an honest to God trading post. Look like back during the forties and fifties up until the early sixties when that section of road was bypassed, it's just going to be a tourist attraction and. What worker y'all planning to get done today? So today, we're putting a fence around it to protect it from the cattle. That's it's on a free range out there. So we have to spend the camel out, but today and over the last four or five days we've raised up to corners of the building we've gotten the plane the plane of the building restored to some satisfactory level of. But our next phase of work would be we're gonna raise the entire building up reestablished sill plates rep a sister in you choice. Do a lot of work put any roof on it. And then finally we have to install a completely new concrete foundation around the perimeter building because it is completely falling away. It's the one thing dodge did that probably shorten the life of that building was the foundation consisted of about an eight five six curb. And that's what the whole building sat on and with wind erosion and the cattle roll me around. Exterior of the building. It's you wrote it away and building a slumped over and somebody listening today, you'll have put together a great fundraiser to help support these the effort and the restoration of this and have brought back an old style. T that of what the trading posts, look like. Sixty years ago. That's correct. That's you can find that by searching for painted desert. Trading post. Customink dot com. There's about a week and a half left in that campaign. And you get yourself a special t shirt that commemorates what the building looks like. And we'll post that link at Rosie on the house. Because there are two there's one on your website hooked on route sixty six.
