The ultralight backpackers do uh. I don't even so here's my deal. There are certain things I don't worry about when I'm on the trail like I'm not taking floss doing that on the trail. Not GonNa don't worry about it. nice eat a lot of Jerky jerky stuck in my teeth but you know there's other things too that you you. Just you just look at it. You know like I don't need that. There's no point taking that way. I really don't need it. and the more you get on the trail like the more. I backed especially after doing so. It's like like flashlight the little thing on the top of my head really all I've I've. I've I've liked it night. Through the night like to about ten eleven one o'clock you know because was on a timeline. Hey if I'm not here by ten alert the park rangers because something has happened. You gotTa make that time. You give yourself that limit. You've gotta get there and that means you have to hike into the dark then. That's what you do but there's a lot of things that I used to take but I don't. I don't think anymore you know safety. Things are one but creature comforts depends on how fast you WANNA move you you get out west and you get altitude at the full moon. You don't even need a light and nine don't and it is that's probably one of my favorite things to do is to go through the night because you've basically got that trail yourself you know and it's just you and nature and you know you've got the moon. Let's got lit up for you and your eyes adjust and I just can't think of anything else Saturday. Yeah Yeah that is it is it's like when you're when you're rucking in. You hit that point where it's it's you against yourself as like okay. I can stop and take a break or I can push through this. You know I love the last six miles of twenty six point two because they are awful but I look back on it. The next day and I'm like I did that you know I survived survived that but I pushed through it and and persevered and and that you can't always say and people probably get tired of me saying it but you can't get there any other way. You can't get to that mental place and the other way than to be everything hurts. You're exhausted. You're you're blistering. You know what I'm saying chafing but she's just keep going you. Just keep going then at night. I can't even imagine eastbound Very David. Goggin like when you say that yeah but that you're right I mean that's when we train for the twenty six mile rocks. That's why we stop it at twenty twenty one miles because after that that you know the training is just to get you to that point and then after that it's just really what what's inside of you. You know there's there's really no you don't train for that part. there's there's no training for it. You you can gritted out or you can't yeah diver member that from my very first marathon back in two thousand eleven. I I remember somebody was holding a sign and it said congratulations you made it to twenty and the thought in my head was fuck you for standing there with that sign that says Tony Liane because now I know I have a ten K. lift. It's funny how those numbers play tricks on your mind like that. Yeah 'cause twenty seems like such a big deal you but all I'm thinking about their six more to go and every one of them feels like twenty we were talking about about the rug last time we had on the podcast. Mike Mike brought up a point might hogue and I thought it was a really good perspective. It was like you know it's the number sure that messes with you because if you now you're going to go twenty six point two then your mind starts to want to shut your body down around twenty one twenty two when you really have to start struggling with it but if that races thirty then your mind starts shutting your body down around twenty six you know and so on and so forth and I thought so what if you win your training you train your mind to be stronger as opposed to okay. We're almost done. Let's let's start fighting the race teams that mental battle would have when you're training you make you flip that mental battle on its head and I've never actually really put that into motion and tried it but I wonder if you even. Can you know what I'm saying very abstract but I do. I'm I've done some ultra distance stuff and you know excess of twenty six right and My training wasn't any different than it was for twenty six. I think I think the secret sauce is just what I call the little victories you know you know this big challenges coming up and if you're going to see it through to the end you've got to set yourself up for a bunch of many successes before that and I don't care if it's a five K. or if it's twenty six two or or or whatever but unless you have unless you're packing in there some confidence that hey I I'm ready for this. I know I can do this then and I think that's when you start looking for reasons to not finish yeah so let's talk about Kilimanjaro..

"You know, it's funny. I was just thinking this. If you really want the maturation process to start with some of these guys with Joel, and Ben which has been like in everybody's kind of favorite phrase, even even again going back to the net series team isn't mature enough to go win, big, etc. Etc. Etc. Honestly, if you want to start you should root for them to lose. You should refer them to lose tomorrow. So that they get humbled or or whatever because what is going to stop them from doing that. If they win if they win they're gonna go. Okay. Cool. I can still be sick go out late. I did. I don't know. Do pushups sit whatever Ben Simmons does hangs out and plays fortnight to whatever is that going to change. If you need to be mature to win. And you do I'm not disagreeing with it. But if you if you really want them to grow up than they should lose because then they won't really understand that lesson or you know, and maybe that's what some people want. I don't know. No one really wants them to lose. I'm just saying like, what are you going to say? Then if they do win this game tonight. Then what is it Ben and Joel are still mature, you know, they just don't have what it takes to go on win game seven. But I don't know. I just feel like we can shift this thing at any time. And what we really need to do is is see what they do in game six, and then still give them time to you know, another year or two to really find their game. And what works best for both of these guys and Jimmy into bias. And then figure out what's going to surround them the best. What's going to give them the best opportunity to get back to the second round in more with the better bench or shooters or whatever? You know, I don't know what that's going to be. And honestly, I'm excited to see Zairean shake and all of those guys because they're going to need a lot of those people to hit and honestly will probably be talking about lender ship in two or three years to, and that's my hope that Tobias Harris kind of comes out and does his thing and proves while you should get another Mexican tract here with Jimmy. And it's just like that whole that whole part of it to me. It's really scary. And like, hey, this is just this is our window now for the next two or three years with these guys. And honestly, I I don't know when Jimmy's gonna decline, you know, like, that's that's another kind of scary factor into the into the max part of it. But or if this kind of holds up to like, I'm still not ready just to say, oh, cool. Jimmy's Jimmy's fine now like Jimmy could still ruin this Ben could still ruin this. There's a number of guys that could ruin this whole process, but still to me I think that they're going to come out and win. In this game tomorrow night. And it'll be kind of interesting to see how people react to that. Eight eight eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four is the budget show right here on sports radio ninety four WIP go to Destin in the northeast Dustin. What's on your mind tonight? Man. Thanks for calling in. Absolutely. Love the show. Great show. Gotta give out real quick to my mandala. Von added listener listens. Every night works out overnight shift. So we'll be tuned in all night with good. Real quick. You know, I I'm I'm with you. I think that they win tomorrow. Well, they went to night, and I think they're going to go into going to win too. I think that they are the better team. If thing I don't understand, and and everybody's really bringing it up. But if you look at our losses in the play offs. It's Ben Simmons. I personally believe Ben Simmons is a lot there that everybody makes not to be understanding jump shot. But when he's attacking the rim Durham bag team or teams to go up against the problem is the other night. He gets lost. He goes in the corner on the baseline, and he doesn't even a party offense. It makes no sense. You cases of court, and then he just goes down to the baseline, and he doesn't do anything. I want. Understand. Why Brown hasn't brought that up or white Brown is pushing for him. If I was Brett Brown. I say the first five possessions, you Ben Simmons in isolation when just attack the rim. I mean, everybody wanted to talk about how bad of a foul shoe everything. But if you go back and look against Brooklyn last series. I mean, I don't know the numbers on top of my head. You'd be able to look them up quicker than me. But I don't I don't remember this. I remember there was a couple of games where he went like seven for seven and six or six airline stand. Why they're not giving him more likely shames and especially towards the end of the season. When you know, we we really haven't seen the starting five plan. I think it was what sixteen games or something like that. But twenty six. Yeah. You're not seeing the pick and rolls anymore. I've seen that. It's very frustrating because they are not I I really truly believe I I don't think that were three four years away from seeing the best of the best or we're going to get out these guys I think we're really not that far away. And I put a guy like Jimmy Jimmy Butler the night, the only one that wanted to be out there outfits, these attacking and any. He's literally looks like the only guy that wants to be out there. And that's I think that's part of the journey of it. I mean, that's Jimmy's always been a killer. So that that's that's why he wants to go there. And you're right. Like that that game three that. I referenced earlier to he went to outline eleven times it was nine for eleven like, that's exactly what you want out of them. If if you in it is it is inexcusable for him to only go. I mean, he was averaging coming into the Toronto series. I think three three attempts at the at the free throw line or averaging that once you once you include all those things in there. And he's going to the foul line four times this series four times that is unacceptable. I'm with you there Dustin like this is that's that's that's where his game needs to be at at all times. Jimmy, Butler said the same thing to you want to go be aggressive, just go and do it. Don't ask. Don't hesitate drive the lane just get in there. I think this is all on then I really do. And another point that I wanted to make was you go back to the other night. And Joel what did he have like eight turnovers or something like that like eight eight eight maybe in the first quarter. I think. Yeah. Yeah. Incredible. But if you go back and look to where he was making the turnovers. For whatever reason Brett Brown sticking on the right blocks. He has to stick him on the left block. Because I don't know. It's I don't know if it's easier for him to get a pass because he has more room because he's a white. He ended dominant player, right? But majority of these turnovers was on the right block. And it's just like I like Brett Brown. I think he's a coach I think he got the short end of the stick for all them ears because in really was our coach for this process. So to saying all the tanking season. Got the weapons, and you gotta gotta change out eight yacht. Extort Putin this team the waiting you're saying that they're they're not you. But a lot of people are saying, they're immature. And I mean, if you go back to the Brooklyn game that once he chewed them out at halftime and game. What was that game? Sorry. That was a totally different tune that we saw out there. And I just I really think they're not that far away. And I are good too. They just need to start playing the type of basketball. They're meant the play. Yeah. And Dustin at you make some really good points in there too. I appreciate the call. And this is just kind of all part of that. Like, I always keep going back. It was a major league to get in my head at all times. Starting to come together pepper is just needed something to bring it all together. And it just feels like it's right at the tip of everybody's tongue including them. But there's only so many times that Brett Brown is going to be able to go into that. Well, and be like, hey, you arrogant asses like, let's go there's only so many times that's going to work. Joe Twitter's making another good point here too is just like the biggest disappointment for me is that Embiid and Simmons in the regular season. It's forty five points per game combined. They're averaging that. And then when you get the playoffs. It's only twenty six. And that's part of why we're frustrated a lot of the time to which is totally understandable. Like, how does how does this happen? Two years in a row where it looks like and and honestly going back to the game three again. Oh, this is different Benson's. Oh, okay. All right. This is nice. This is not the the guy that was, you know, the hanging back and not as aggressive and kind of lost. And then all of a sudden he just reverts right back into that the same. Joel it. Hey, great. He's not wearing a mask. But also, all right. He's got tendinitis is a little banged up there. And now he's sick. And now, it's just like, you know, that means something, and it it is so much different. I mean, it's a completely different NBA season. We know that by watching season after season after season what you know, right now like the Golden State Warriors wrong. We know what they do almost every single time. We've known what LeBron has done almost every single time. Because when people try to all of a sudden just say LeBron's dead, or you know, these guys aren't as good as they? I think there's some chinks in the armor there. They get to the playoffs and all of that disappears. Because they remember when it takes they remember, you know, how many it's just a completely different season. And now that they've only had really two seasons of true NBAC's because that's what it is in somebody charted it today, and it's amazing how you could make the argument for a lot of different players in this league because they all basically shoot the same way during the regular season and the playoffs come in those splits. Go haywire. They go crazy. I mean, you see Katie in another atmosphere, and then there's you know, the gestalt of the world and everybody it's just it's insane. How much different the playoffs are versus.
"rim durham" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"Morning. Thank you for spending some time with us today. Have you been to the Grand Canyon lately? I I am surprised kill you. You get these like blink stare shocked looks. I have a friend that went to a university. I know that is you do. Yeah. Ten that right now. It's about a three wood from the Grand Canyon. Okay. And she told me I've never been to the Grand Canyon. I'm sorry. What you live. You went to school next. I just never never went to the Grand Canyon. She didn't want to. But I don't understand that you not one. Even sure if that's true, but it is in my world, but we are having in the last couple of weeks, and I don't know of anything changed. I don't know if it's just dumb luck. We've had not one two but three people now who have slipped fallen gone over the edge of the canyon and died. I mean think about that. What a way to go off it. Well, I mean come on. Now, you've got you've got like you said the third person in like two weeks. You got a guy who fell about what four hundred feet or. So they said over the south ram south from. Yeah. Sixty seven year old man, they they don't know too much about him right now other than the fact that he is the third in such a short period of time. We find out that last year. Because I don't look I know you've got the paperwork in front of me. Let me ask you this. If I were to ask you, and I might need to be more about him. And I think this is this is something I didn't know it aren't ask you how many people do you think? Died last year at the Grand Canyon. Like in total or Gwen over the edge. I don't know if there's a different age it saying fatalities. So the Grand Canyon popular place. High is a hugely popular park. It's packed all the time. Yeah. But I just haven't heard all these stories. I don't know. Five or ten seventeen. Okay. Seventeen. Now as I look at this, though, they're not all people who got too close to the at and fell over and fell fouls feet down into the world's largest hole in the ground. Yeah. I mean, I've had friends that have done like the rim Durham hike shirk church, which you've got to inform you have to be an amazing shape. But don't just try to do this. No, this is lamb for. But you know, it gets hot that is a very strenuous hike people's bodies give out and so there's a variety of different things going on. But again like going over the edge of the Grand Canyon three in such a short period of time as odd. Now, I'm gonna I'm gonna be insensitive for just a little, but this is the my insensitive warning. If you climb to the edge of the Grand Canyon, and you're taking a selfie or a picture or whatnot. And you get too close to the edge and fall over. Is this just a thinning of the herd? Oh, man. Wow. It's not like the Grand Canyon snuck up on you, Pamela. It's not like, you didn't know it was a huge hole in the ground. I get it, man. I get it. But like accidents do happen to the edge of it. See, I don't I don't like heights. I will like I'll put up with them. But like I'll put up my stomach is. I mean, I fly. I mean, I'll do like zip lining and stuff like that feeling in my belly that that taste of metal in my mouth, my okay? So it's real it's not debilitate. Like, I'll do it. Right. Conquer my view vapor-lock when it happened. Okay. I and an accident happen. I don't think this is all just as you put it a thinning of the herd. I mean, accidents happen. I gave it insensitivity warning. Yeah. So that makes it ok, okay. But three PM in less than two weeks falling over the side of the Grand Canyon in two weeks, all of them tourists. All they're looking to get that picture. I'm assuming is it is it also like the it's not going to happen to me people. What nobody goes there with the idea? I think I'll fall into the captain obvious. I'm simply saying where you're always like you're walking right up to that age. Like, I'm good everybody else. Does it I'm fine. So what you might picture standing on the key tweet that out you got to tweet that out through picture standing on the end. Yeah. Yeah. I have a whole bunch of why went right up to the edge took pictures. There's a joke in there somewhere. But listen at no point was I unaware that. If I tripped my shoe laces came undone, I slipped on Iraq. In poorly. Why would you even put yourself in that position that jeez? So there are places around the Grand Canyon. We're you know, you've got the scenic overlooks, and they have sensing. What's the glass thing? They do. They're the skywalk. Thank you guy, walks a little difficult. That's okay. Because unless the glass break should never has by the way yet. Right. That would be like me again. I really gonna put myself out on this glass walkway looking straight down. Spokesperson for those people. He's into a lot of fun out there. You know, what my parents have done it? And if I had the chance, I probably would too I'd conquered that fear and tastes the metal in my mouth. But I probably still do it. But there are those other scenic outlooks where you know, you either get off the train or the tram or you drive over and park somewhere, and you walk up and the metal tubing kind of fencing reasonably not everything is just open space, although I can tell you if you want me to I will tweet the picture of me standing on the edge. But. I was hearing. Is that the little the little community there where you have bright angel lodge and all that kind of the the base of operations. You know, they just have a walk. It's the parks department or whatever. And and you can step off of the little paved part and go towards the edge. There's no warning signs. But again when you warning people of danger huge hole in the ground. Isn't that while you're there? I was gonna say I've like I seen a sign that says getting close to the edge and falling into this crevasse couple thousand feet can be dangerous to your health. I would've taken a picture with that. And you would have made him of it. And I would have gone really gonna tell people that falling down into the grand canyon's bad for your health. But like my husband, Chris is the kind that like when my daughter even kind of goes up to the fence by the Grand Canyon. He's a quote will stay back. Stay back. I'm like there's a fence. She's okay. But he is protective. He's like, no, you know, things can happen to keep her safe. And again when they went it was she was much younger. So you got she's your child you have to look out for her best interest you on the other hand just act like a child by going and take pictures, and in that case, it's on you standing on the edge. You look like when you do that. Like, you're Darren like. Yeah. I was thinking to dive also is the other side. I don't know. But again, the self, Ian, and Graham is once creating these hanging that's unique because medical issues heat issues. All that kind of stuff is really what hurts people the most at the canyon got it. Well, sadly, and again, I'm not in favor of it, obviously. But with be in favor of third person now visitor to the Grand Canyon National park has died. Just this week that puts three in the last two weeks of people getting too close to an edge losing their footing climbing out on an outcropping, whatever it might be and finding out that it is extremely extremely dangerous. Speaking of dangerous. Let's say you go nowhere near the edge at the Grand Canyon. You are not a risk taker. But you're just interested bad person at work. Are you so bad? Can you get such a grudge with a co worker that you poison your co worker what if this poisoning goes on over a year and a half? He's trying to tell me something. Well, I'm just wondering how bad a poison her. You have to be for a year and a half hours. Little nervous, right? We're talking about it. It's coming up after Bob McClay checks in with our top stories. KTAR news flash at ten fifteen. Bob McClay.
