"I like to welcome the show Sam and Nina. Oppenheim Sam you may remember from being on the show way back you can find Samsa Tiger fee at Sam Oppenheim, dot com Sam and Nina welcome to the show. Thank you for having a Song Chris to care and I say Sam has been on the show in a while we figure it's something like ten years of marriage in two kids later that SAM is back. In the early years talking about Bali and northern India and Laos I believe if I am. Correctly, but you're talking something a little more domestic this time. What are we talking about today? So mostly the national parks in northern Colorado I figured because of Covid we did a little domestic travel and there's some amazing sites at their dinosaur, national? Monument. Doesn't get enough attention and Rocky Mountain National Park among a lot of people's favorites excellent and you did this as part of a larger RV trip this year. Correct. So we did our first ever family RV trip and we all four corners, Arizona Utah Colorado? New Mexico but what we covered has been covered by your show before like the route sixty six stuff in New Mexico and Arizona we did that and you recently had a podcast about the national parks in Arizona. Offer beaten past beyond the Grand Canyon so we don't want to repeat anything It's getting tougher. So we do repeat some things these days. In fact, I'm going to try and repeat the show we did allows Laos coming up here sometime I'm just looking for a guest. So let's focus in on Colorado which I think we decided was about a week long portion of your trip yes and you doing this by RV right excellent and where should we start if you're GONNA? Do it just all on its own as a one week one way road trip you could fly into Salt Lake City and fly out of like older Denver area. But I'm not GonNa Really. WanNa talk about Salt Lake City that much. So I think. Can we just start in Dinosaur National Monument border of Utah and Colorado. So we're up in the north western corner of Colorado when we're in dinosaur national monument correct it's most of the monument is now in Colorado but the part with the dinosaur quarry is in Utah and it's one of those parks that stretches across the border and it's Absolutely. Incredible. It's actually two hundred, ten, thousand acres and includes two river canyons both the green and Yamba River canyons and so some people think Oh, it's a national monument. It's not as big as a national park will actually it's a lot bigger than some national park. So the designation National Park is more Congressional and National Monument is Presidential Right? It doesn't determine the funding or the sides are valued visiting the site right? Exactly. So I have spent some time in Dinosaur National Monument but I've done exactly the opposite of the things that you've done. So tell me a little bit about your experience first of all. Yes. So we did is we stayed in an RV campsite outside of the park, but actually we're going to recommend that anyone doing this trip stays inside the park. It's just going to be a better trip I'm talking this cold tour that we're going to be doing here is more of an outdoorsy type of tourism, and so I think if you word of a reserve, the campground at either Split Mountain or Green River on the Utah side of. Dinosaur. National Monument. You would then be inside the park. It's a beautiful campground right on a quiet stretch of the Green River, and all these campgrounds can be reserved on recreation dot Gov, and you could do it with an RV and could do it with a tent. But if you wanted to stay outside there are places you can stay in Jensen Utah which is kind of the border town for the national. Monument, in Utah more in Dinosaur Colorado, they named the town after the monument. Okay and neither of those are all that large town as I am now I think the largest town in the area's vernal Utah, which a little further west than Johnson and actually we should mention that if you're into dinosaurs hopefully you are. If you're going to dinosaur national monument, there is actually a lovely museum in Vernal Utah Not a large museum, but you can see some velociraptor and things like that. So especially, if you're there with kids and I think you were traveling with two. That's that's someplace that I would recommend. We were on prevent a long drive from Bryce Canyon Up to Dinosaur National Monument, and so we drove to rural and it was we made sure to stop at some of those dinosaur statutes that are in town. We weren't unfortunately stay for the museum. I. Don't know if it was open actually right now a lot of museums here in two, thousand, twenty, nine open. It was great to see those the statues in town. If you like photo ops with giant roadside dinosaurs, you won't be disappointed on this road trip.

"Inspire a discussion. That will maybe lead to a much more civil insensible dialogue as to what we're going to do about this in the future, because it's not about the present. It's about the future. The first thing I can say, and I'll say this unequivocal after having spent an entire career. In conservation in the outdoors. I think I might know more about this than a lot of people who are talking about it, who are misrepresenting science and also who are misrepresenting years of What has been actually half a century of mismanagement. Of our national force of our state force of our grasslands. The fires that have started in the West this year are not caused by climate change. They are caused by the management of our landscape, and they may be Find out Enhanced. By the changing that we're seeing in our client that we're seeing in our climate. But climate change has not caused these fires, and it is absolutely Absolutely wrong. People to state that these fires are being caused by climate change, and I will put my entire professional reputation on that These fires are not being caused by climate change. Is it warmer, Possibly As is a dryer. It has been for the last decade or so. In the late eighties. You may remember that Yellowstone Park Turned burned to the ground. Biggest fires in American Western history occurred in the ladies. You never heard anyone. I don't recall anyone saying it's the cause of climate change. No The cause of the Yellowstone fires were very clear. Yellowstone National Park had not been managed for almost 100 years. There had been no timber cut. There had been no grazing permitted. There was no fire management of any kind. And Wim Somers 80 had occurred and Yellowstone burned. It was the result of a terrible mismanagement for nearly in that case, nearly a century. It wasn't quite changed then and it's not climate change now. Climate change, which I'll get to in a moment in the discussion of it, and again. I'm not trying to publicly here today because that's not what I do on this show, but I will offer 50 plus years of mismanagement and of individuals one of the time and ultimately by the tens of thousands of moving into areas where they should not live. Has caused much of the damage we're seeing now. There are throughout the American West, particularly in California. People living in places were quite frankly, they shouldn't live. And when these fire subside and the grass is gone, and we have our rainy season There will be nothing to cover all there'll be nothing to cover the ground. And then what's gonna happen? We're gonna have a mudslide insurance. I'm talking today You will be looking at the national news or reading the papers. Online, of course. And you'll read about the terrible mudslides and the people who are losing everything they have. Which is absolutely awful. But they're living in places they shouldn't be living. And so when the governor of California this is not a political statement, it doesn't matter whether Republican Democrat and independent a libertarian, it doesn't matter. When he stands in front of the nation in the world, says we are experienced. They need fires because of climate change. He is misleading, not only the people in California but the world. We're having these fires because we have put people in harm's way. And in part they're causing fires, and we have caused these fires because of such gross neglect and management of our grasslands International force two years ago in California. Many of you may recall we had flooding. We had a very wet winter very wet spring and we had growth of grass such hasn't been seen in a number of years. They're no cattle to graze it. Sheep are grazing it. Arnie Buffalo grazing. So the grass grew and in the grass dies and then the grass becomes nothing more than a tinderbox. And that's what we're seeing. If you drive around the American West, which I have done throughout my life, and then you look at the complete death. A forest like Rocky Mountain National Forest in Colorado. The Pine Beetle has basically eliminated the forest. It's not a force. It's just trees standing there better firewood. You can't call the Rocky Mountain National Forest, a few in the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, a beautiful force. It's just firewood waiting to happen. So the whole discussion Needs to be about what are we gonna do, going forward, and if, in fact it is because our climate is getting warmer and drier. We have to take different management approaches. We are not going to stop in the next year or 10 years, according to most people's estimates hundreds of years A changing of the Earth's climate. If, in fact it is warming accessibly because of what we're doing, and just for a moment, I'll say it is It's not a solution that we're going to deal with in our lifetimes or Children's lifetimes. And if it's not It's not a solution at all, what we have to have and what I really hope we can have and those of you listening and hope that you believe me on this. What we have to have is responsible management and we have to have a system that says we can't have people living in places they shouldn't live. And we need to have grazing of our lands. And we need to have management of our force and management of our force means cutting trees. Part of the problem about cutting trees is that the environmental movement doesn't want you to cut anything. And on the other part A temper. Industry is not benefiting by wholesale cutting of trees because it will drive down the price of timber. So if you're in the logging business, you'll have a job. If you want to buy a house and build the house, it'll cost less money because the price of lumber is gonna go down. But if you're in the lumber business,.

"Video here in the studio the mountains off mine ranch here in northern Colorado that as long it actually starts inside of rocky mountain national park so I guess I'm not one I can complain given I do have a great view going through the whole shelter employees experience that world dealing with what we have upgraded the studio we have plenty of time on our hands so we will be using the studio more often now for the going forward shows giving you also a a little bit of a video option to see what what's it like if we put together the show so today's show we do have a guest joining us me as soon as you know now we're more than five years resume has been a great sponsor a reviewing who's the the resume is a longtime friend even when I was in H. P. and he was at Cisco and we've been that we had this great partnership where Zuma's been supporting of the show to allow you to enjoy it allows us to I have a small staff to help those do the production work on those so we for exim as always for their support we do have a guest joining us via zoom today it's a little bit of a different topic we tend to get into you know more broad innovations ideas and entrepreneurs and business models and cetera this is kind of a mix because we're going to get into some technologies that aren't going to get us most of you don't think about or haven't thought about you may enjoy looking at them but you've actually haven't thought about some of the technical challenges in the innovation challenges to make things that you've enjoyed all reality so today's guest joining me here real soon is William better William is the president and CEO pangolin now he and I spent sometime before we started the show today talking about you know a little bit of the background on this but before we jump into the specifics of the technology bill I wanted you to give us a little background on yourself how did you what your what your background how do you get into this particular topic of interest a short while my father actually worked at univac and also at NASA on the Apollo space program and he was one of the engineers there and so he and I was always around that and and Connick tagging around him and so that got me interested in like products and so I attended the electronics of heart in high school at that kind of one of their programs there and wound up representing that high school and the international skill Lympics place six for that and then went on to college to study in the field of electronics so and now let's try this wasn't my whole life I was also in a rock band like many people out there I found lots of people are in rock bands and the you know you figure you play guitar you that's how you get the girls right that's what you're thinking never works but that's what we think I played bass and synthesizer which might even be worse from a girl's perspective but but yes it will well I was in a rock band for us it wasn't only about the music but it was also about the look kind of the the house flashy could we make this because we figured that kind of the last year it was the more excited people would be and they kind of confuse that for good music so I built my own lighting rig while I was in college did that as a college project and also so at the time this is in the mid eighties and Pink Floyd invoice a couple had a lasers as part of their rock band inside that will we need that for us but I looked into it and laces were just crazy expensive and so just kind of looked at it and it's still talking about a college kids budget right so you know so I looked around and I was able to find a place that sold the surplus lasers that I found lasers were used in a particular type of development machine that Kodak use recall developing and so I was able to take that plus some other things and just kind of cobbled this thing together and was able to create a laser show for abandoned that got a lot of interest it got a lot of views and what happened was the band like like what happens with many high school and college bands the band kind of faded away in the background the had the drummer who moved up to Jacksonville at the guitarist who moved away so so but my interest and love of lasers remained and I've I figured let's see if we could turn this into a business what's interesting to hear of your home stay on point it's almost fell into this by accident in a way yes I wanted to create something for our band and and then that served as a direction and that that that kind of the primary thing at the time the band fell away but that the direction of lasers did CERN turned out to be at a good direction for the rest of my life yeah so in fact the laser show that your credit for your band then became the foundation for what it is your company does not all right because that's basically what you're doing is hello and I'm getting them into the wild yeah the the the laser show you do now hold more sophisticated models are so if you are calling for more yeah I think we've been in business for thirty four years and it's just been a crazy ride well and I think that was my point is in the interest of the nation you know we've all seen here only different kinds of laser shows and you know it was I was certainly give her a sort of the the the show today you know my son you know works will Disney company in Orlando he's been with us for more than you know let love in twelve years now and he's always been on the theme parks and resorts side so it's about park expansions of the new water show in the new laser shows and all that it's all about how do you create that wow experience so that was the point of the intro was we've probably all seen later shows but we probably have almost like zero background in the hole that comes together yeah that's right exactly Disney is one of our clients actually yeah well that they don't and I don't know who wrote that in in the background you know she'd on on you and your firm and I assume that you had some involvement because I'm going to guess there aren't a lot of people in the state the fire was problem someone of a Nicci area for a lot of those yes for sure it's a big Nisha and we're not the only ones there is a half a dozen companies scattered around the world I think we're the only ones in the United States that and and I want to be clear that we don't do the laser shows at but what we do is we make the equipment that other people do to do the laser shows right are primarily production companies it could be your theme parks and you know individuals even your local pubs and clubs have our laser systems in them as a part of that the wow factor there so when you're actually there and providing the enabling technology others are crafting and in choreographing the show what you're you're the ad enabler for them to be able to do that then yes that's correct yes the way I like it is like we you know as imagine Microsoft to make Microsoft Word they don't make medical transcriptions they don't make legal documents they don't make us kids term papers but Microsoft Word is used for all of these things so we make software and laser projectors that are used for laser shows all over the world whether it's for concerts or seen parks or sporting events or the projection on the side of the mountain there on the side the pyramids that's that's all of our stuff that does that technology how big is your company you've been around for more like thirty four years yes that's right since nineteen eighty six and we got a total of thirty five people we got twenty here in the Orlando area and then people scattered around the world who work for us either as consultants and we we've actually got a couple little sister companies we've got one in Slovenia we got a small company in China and and we're one of the only companies selling things to the Chinese the scenes you know we we make both hardware and software that we wind up selling to the Chinese so that's been quite fantastic what are your bread from the bears in points do you do your manufacturing in the United States phone or you're doing also all of the software is made in the United States one of the things that we manufacture is a part of our systems are the laser scanners we'll talk about that probably a little bit but yet we manufacture laser scanners here United States a hundred percent all the software is made here are some of the electronics but but in most of our circuit boards and that sort of thing is done by our sister company called pangolin DO in Slovenia okay a great group of people there are great interesting well when I was at eight thirty we do tend to find these pockets of unique expertise that you never knew existed quite right software engineering in the south of Brazil you'd never think about it but there's some college campuses down there to do when I'm all training for software so you always find his little pocket cels Linnea that a lot of good experience in Czechoslovakia my background yeah so what's interesting is the importance of being primarily being able to leverage that expertise to create that again these kinds of these kinds of enabling technologies that are coming up on a commercial break here real quick but when we come back what I want to talk about that is really about you know how how did you get from that rock band to where your products are today you know what were some of those key milestones along the way and talk a little bit about what some of your customers have done with your solutions to what you said your call like Microsoft Word right you didn't write the term paper but boy there's been some really great some papers written on my wall in order for me our authors writing books and books yes you'll those kinds of birds so right when we come back I want to pick up.

"In Rocky Mountain National Park. It flows goes down a canyon and over chasm falls before a confluence with the big Thompson River in S. Park so basically they're camping on the side of a portion of this like river network yeah just after a waterfall so that's on the AH I looked at pictures. It looks pretty. Chasm falls looks pretty cool so it looks like a sweet spot to go camping at this area. Fall River is located kind of in the center of Rocky Mountain National Park. This park was founded a quite a long time ago January twenty-sixth Nineteen fifteen by President Woodrow Wilson. It's a pretty popular park in two thousand seventeen. They had over four point four million visitors in the park. It's this was the second highest annual visitation interesting facts about the park. People have been visiting this park for a very long time. Records go back to eleven thousand years where projectile points have been found that are believed to have been used to hunt mammoth so just picture earlier you know these giant Harry elephants walking around in Rocky Mountain National Park and kind of early hunters you know throwing spears at him other than say they're taking them down with arrows and spears and stuff. That's that's insane because they're so big even think about like trying to get an elephant now with like a speed right how much effort it would take this park has been visited for thousands of years. It's your typical Alpine climates. The highs in the upper sixties and July to the lows in the teens means during the winter months now Joe Capitol Peak. Is that in Rocky Mountain National Park No it's it's south of it quite away so capitals on B._L._M.. Land just outside of Aspen from what I read about Capitol Peak. It sounds like they do experience extreme weather. Yeah I mean I was there at at the foot. It was about ninety five. It was a it was the hottest day of the year when we got there and a week before then the mountains got two feet of snow so it goes blizzard. That's why they're all the avalanches and stuff yeah so rocky. Mountain National Park has a similar type of reputation for extreme weather events. They've got a lot of complex complex interactions with elevations in slopes going on it. You know it causes a lot of moisture moisture to form over the the park and you've got a lot of different air masses meeting. You've got warm moist air from the south meeting kind of Arctic Cold Air masses from north a lot of extreme weather extreme snow events in the summer dumber. Anybody anybody is hype and hiking in the mountains knows that it can go from the nineties to thunder snow even sometimes depending on elevation so you gotta be prepared for everything yeah if you look at the location of the state and even that park it's is almost like in the center of the country to where like the Great Plains are then. You have like the desert below it like it's almost like an area right in the middle. Were just stuff would all mixed together so you get that really weird mix a weather yeah <hes> so the animals in the park this will this will play a factor in our case in a little bit but there's there's quite a few predators in the park. You've got Canadian. Lynx Fox's Bob Cats cougars black bears coyotes the you one animal that's missing from the Park Grizzlies and they removed removed from the park in the early nineteen hundred so no grizzlies but you still got a lot of predators in the park especially for small children the mountain lions and the cats scenario really a big concern highest elevation. The park is long's peak at fourteen thousand two hundred feet believe there's over a hundred and twenty four named peaks at least of at least eighty seven hundred feet so a lot of mountains is great great place to go hiking climbing. I WANNA move there every time I go there. I'm like all right time to stay. Just live out in the woods. Yeah I would so <hes> besides Ed's animals the biggest dangerous for people is going to be exposure and this is pretty common at any Alpine region with that many peaks that high of elevation. You'RE GONNA have a lot of exposed areas above the tree line. You're going to be exposed to an environment airmont has less action in the US to <hes> wins cold temps lots of precipitation <hes> so it's a pretty dangerous environment. It can also be pretty nice if you catch it at the right time. You just got to keep an eye in the sky because you get up there. There's nowhere to take shelter above the treeline yeah once you're at Alpine. It's it's game over if you're in a storm yeah and one of the other big killers when people go up elevation as altitude sickness so <hes> besides you know exposure you know some people really succumb to altitude sickness a lot easier than others so that's something else have to watch out for so that is kind of a quick overview of the park. <hes> Joe is now going to kind of go into a character profile in a timeline yeah. We'll talk a little bit about Alfred and then go into the story so this being such an old case we don't have the minute times what they did keep decent records on the dates and kind of what happened so it's going to be a little bit of a shorter show but that's fine for those that have short commutes. They get mad that we don't have got a couple of those letters that they want the show to match their commute. Exactly I apologize that we can't match everybody's commute time for her. Show uh-huh so Alfred Bill Hearts was young male he was they said three or four but the more research I did. Everyone seems to really focus on that. He was four at the time of the disappearance. <hes> would be eighty four today <hes> white mail blonde hair. We have a a couple pictures will post it will be on one of the covers <hes> just <hes> photo of him from that era. It's black and whites who really can't tell but he looks like a little four year old boy basically July second so the family and friends is it a bigger people. It was harder than a couple of people that aren't directly related but their family friends that went on this camping trip. I was stated through multiple sources that Alfred went up to fall river with his father who has a William Bill Hearts to bathe so this is like the morning they just woke up <hes> and their party friends who came with Oren Bronson and Walter Hansen were both in the camping party. They went upstream debate as well however they went about five hundred feet upstream so they're just a little separated from where Alfred and his father were so from all the sources we've read it seems as though Alfred's father finished and was heading back to camp and Alfred wanted to keep playing by the river so he went up by the other men that were upstream again. This is about five hundred feet so within eyeshot. You should be able to see it yeah. The issue was Orrin Walter now. These are the two friends that were also bathing upstream. They returned to camp without Alfred so as soon as they got back to camp. Everyone realizes he's not there and they went into panic mode just as you would if you're missing your four year old especially next to a stream yeah so the family started searching immediately frantically turned up nothing so when they couldn't find him immediately. They contacted the ranger pitcher at Fall River Ranger station. His name was Mama and I couldn't tell I couldn't find if that was his first or last name. I'm guessing it's the last name it's Ranger Muga M. O. M. A. W. so Mu Mol activated the civilian Conservation Corps <hes> we're calling them the triple C. or C. C. and it when I was reading through this I was actually amazed because this is the thirties the amount of time they were able to get people together. Yeah was fascinating so within forty five minutes minutes. There's an estimated a one hundred C._C._C. in Rowley searching under the leadership of Moumouh and the Chief Ranger <hes> Barton Hersler so they got one hundred people together the chief ranger together already start searching in under for an hour in the thirties. It's all you could call people up on their cell phones or things like that so is pretty incredible. They were in luck though and this is a pretty cool tidbit so there's a guy by the name of W._c.. Hill Hill Dick. He was a chief radio engineer for. All the National Park Service he happened to be at the park at that time and he helped the teams established communication via shortwave radio and this was like a brand new invention at the time so I mean this is like a new thing to have radios and communicate so this was a rebel at the time I am a revolutionary technology that we'd compared to probably some type of drone technology today Oh yeah or I would say compared to like that. He signature stuff that they use the things like find heat differential so we talked about that with Joshua tree yeah like how old's your snap photos is. An the computer runs an algorithm to look for anomalies that aren't part of nature so like for them. It was these radio so the teams could communicate and the radios were so largely to be carried on the backs of the people using him so think about like <hes> saving private Ryan when they're trying communicate in the front and they have that guy who's his only jobs yeah yeah. He's just a radio guy because it's so huge so they're using these in the park so they're able again to assemble this massive team and under an hour and then the guy who's the new chief chief radio engineer for the entire Park Service happens to be there as well so they they had a lottery coincidental. It's very coincidental need a lot of good stuff going for them so you feel like if he was there like there would have been early success the however they had all these people. There is no finding the boy at all so now fast forward July fourth so this is a couple of days later after the search is still ongoing they started adding bloodhounds so the search so they went to the local state penitentiary and got fifty fresh fresh C._C._C. members and they still uncovered. Nothing's now we have upwards of one hundred fifty people. Searching dogs are now involved so we're GONNA go to July fifth now and this is where they started taking really drastic measures they actually diverted the river that was feeding the main river and they dragged the entire thing so they basically stopped the flow of water while dragged every inch of the river because at this point they're thinking they're on a recovery mission yeah and they got nothing they also so the teams deeply searched the woods and brush within a ten mile radius so now you have you know three days of pretty intense activity going on in a small area and we'll always go back to this is a four year old. Oh boy so it's not like one fees in the river. Yeah you think of the worst thing he he drowns or he gets swept downstream. They're dragging in. They're pulling up everything that I find his body. They're searching the immediate area. They're not coming up with every anything so doing this over several days and nothing they're not finding anything at all yeah so the next major timeline is now and July eleventh so at this time is when they really started dwindling the team so they had about twelve people <unk> only still searching the area so they're starting to give you know basically give up on this and then it seemed like the last ditch effort was July twelfth and Cascade Dam.

"Shovels. Digging for Miami. The guy that's selling them all the equipment. Yeah. You'll be the rich one. So the size two hundred sixty five thousand seven hundred ninety five acres or four hundred fifteen square miles. It's a big park similar to the size of cell folk Virginia, it's big it's a wide area. Very rugged terrain. The average temperatures range from the highs in the upper sixties that's in July two lows in the teens during the winter months and talking about climate in higher alpine elevations. It could be eighty degrees down the base of the mountain. And you get up and allegation. Joe knows this when you thousand feet and gets hold even in July. Maybe it could be snow up. We ran into like the coolest guy ever met. But he was like I thought he was on drugs when I'm at home. So this'll be I promise this will be short side thing, but we are doing long's peak, and we were trying to go through the keel. So for those you who might know there's several camps. It's very popular. Fourteen or to do it's hard twenty harder ones. But a lot of campsites along the way. It's really neat. If you're a regular you could do it in a day. Yeah. A lot of working. We we did it in two days where you're camping. I brought out some people who've never done it before. But we were at base camp before making summit, and we're climbing up towards a keyhole, which is just sprawling boulders box your clients. It's kind of difficult to it's not really a trail. You don't need a quit to do it. But you're climbing over big rocks and stuff like a mile away. We see this headlight bouncing inbounding bouncing and we're climb up the face. You know, looking back to see who's coming up. We'll see headlamps, and it seemed like every time I turn around. He was like a quarter mile closer. Like, this guy was running. He was running. And then all of a sudden, we're three quarters of the way up towards keyhole. He's at the base of the rockpile now like it's ridiculous. How fast guys moving we get into the talker, I Pol and we hear, hey, what's up guys Poche shit? Like this like he's in like biker shorts like biking shoes, and a T shirt, a headlamp, and it's like a blizzard. Yeah. He's like it's a lot warmer in the parking lot where I started. Yes. And that's a good reason. Why you prepare when you go up to elevations? You don't want to be caught up their bad weather in shorts and a t-shirt. Yeah. He was like in great condition. So we're we're giving them some of our close 'cause I was overdressed. And I was like here, dude. Like you're gonna freeze that, but he was a cool, dude. But he had basically ran the whole the whole way up. And then I'm assuming he was a local. Yeah. Oh, yeah. He was a local he said something about he was like leaving the state. That day and he wanted to quit get a fourteen in so. Yeah. Who knows? He was awesome, dude. But yeah, I I was not doing that. No. That's pretty insane. So yeah, that just illustrates Mike's differentiator between I mean, the parking lot where he started to where it was thirty degree difference. No. And from I've hiked in the Canadian Rockies, and we were out there while ago near mount cinnabon are hike up to one of the peaks there. We literally went from sunny and eighty to rain to snow. We got to the peak of the mountain. It was about night. One of the peaks around was like ninety five hundred feet, and there is snow on the top in then off in the distance there were thunderstorms rolling in. So that just shows you how quickly whether it can change from sunny to snow back to thunder and lightning. And the one thing anybody that goes hiking elevations, you do not want to be caught on a mountain peak in a lightning storm. That's the thing. Kills more mountain climbers than anything else. Everyone's always worried about falling to actually get hit by lightning. All right. So get back to the climate. So what we talked about was it sixties July low teens in the winter months. Like, it's not threes. Ing, you know, it can get obviously negatives. Lots and lots of snow not not terrible. I've been there in winter months. A lot of fun beautiful area. Like great place to be when it's like that cold Arctic air will come down from north meeting with warm moist air coming from the Gulf of Mexico. So that's where they get all that snow, you know, they're measured in feet at most times when you're getting up that high, and if you ever seen pictures of snow removal on the main roads that drive up there, it's they have like these twenty two foot posts to show that you don't drive. A snow plow truck off the edge of the Cl it's insane. And there's there's months where they just shut it down. It's not worth this, no removal, and it's just you have these fourteen foot walls and either side of a road. So it's it's pretty incredible. If you have the time. Golick up, snow removal and Rocky Mountain national park. It's it's ridiculous. And that's why they shut it down. So we'll jump into a little bit of the geology during the Palios Zelic paleozoic era that's five forty one to two hundred and fifty million years ago much of the western United States, including the park was under the under a shallow sea with sea-bed compose of limestone dolemite deposits that were many kilometers thick. So it was underwater pikes peak granite form during the late pre-cambrian era and continued well into the paleozoic era a lot of quantities of molten rock flowed through there. There's a lot of water. So a lot of different things were happening that basically formed this area three hundred million years ago. The land was up lifted creating the rocky mountains, that's where you have your tectonic shifts in the plates climbing. No, we're floating a bunch of plates. They crash knew each other. They pull apart when the happens earthquakes happened, but pretty much that's where we get all of our mountain ranges from. So lifted up the land continued to uplift for hundreds of millions of years, creating what we call the rocky mountains today. So that's going up through. I mean, does it goes all the way up to Alaska through Canada down all the way to the Gulf of Mexico? So you can basically trae long mountain chain. It's it's the the trace of the edge of the tectonic plate. So if you look at the whole thing a map, it's really cool as we get from Alaska on down. So when you're in Alaska and Canada, it's much more of an aggressive mountain range, and then as you get towards the Gulf. It's a little bit more mellow. You're not seeing the jutting up more roles into a little bit more smooth. If you can imagine that so much of the park also had massive glaciers that helped shape the feature. So there's areas reconsider where glaciers either push rock part of the land away and remove much of sedimentary rock. So they said is as much as five thousand feet. Yeah. I was surprised really are inland. So that's that's that's ridiculous. A lot of force. A lot of force. I mean, that's like, you know, more than half a mile of rock. I mean, that's good thing. We weren't around. Then. Although I'd have been slow. It's not one a few hundred million years one carbon through and removing it. So some of the dangerous present predators as far as animals, go Canadian lynx? Fox's FOX FOX's FOX FOX yet. No maces moose. Oh, Bob cats Cougars twenty to thirty mountain lions in the area that's Cougars and Bob cats black bears coyotes, so not none of those. Are they always sound bad? Those typically leave people own you apply here say it multiple times and other podcasts they stay away from people especially a park. This busy there yesterday off the main trails. Yeah. If anything you're having I've seen a couple times black bear will come into major campgrounds because food. Yeah, they're they're not going there to go out. They can pretty easily be scared off just making loud noise. And. Yeah, really the ones you worry about wolves and grizzlies. We're moving the park in the nineteen hundreds. So you're not having any your major ones. That's one of the parks. I go to that's not really concerned about animals when I'm there. Yeah. It's a good park to bring little kids. Sue because you're not gonna like glacier where we had a big. Yeah. I wouldn't bring my kids. They're big grizzly problem. And I wouldn't know that I'd feel comfortable kids. I wouldn't be my kids back country. Glacier on the main roads. Yeah. The so many people the only thing you worry about with any tiny kid is they can. And it does happen. You know, scooped up by the by the cats when they're by themselves. Yeah. So that's even like when I bring my kids there. It's like all right. Stay in a group. The group things leave you alone.

What happened you are listening to locate? Hello and welcome to locations known episode three. I am Joe. I am Mike and welcome back from the holiday. We're getting big quick. If you couldn't tell we've got a pretty big star. You know, not a big deal. Yeah. We just the one in only Morgan Freeman. No. As a joke over the holiday. I told Mike I wanted Morgan Freeman do announcer show. So I went on fiver for those you who don't know what fiber is. It's a website where you can go on and get people that do pretty much anything for five bucks. So use your imagination. But I found a guy on there who will do a Morgan Freeman sound alike of anything up to two hundred and fifty characters. So I paid them to think twenty bucks to read our intro. And then send it to Mike as a joke. But we both liked it next episode. We'll have Arnold Schwarzenegger to something something. So maybe we'll continue this. We won't. We'll see what happens. But again, thanks for listening in. We're back from a long break. It was a good Christmas or holiday, whatever you celebrate. And we've got a case for you. Glad to be back. Absolutely episode three. Bobby by its buys up is up guys up. Okay. I kept saying biz up over the whole break and thinking that was the name it's buys up as we researched more. Bobby buys up was at camp Milo retreat in the late fifties. He was what ten years old? I believe he was policies here. This called show prep. Yeah. He was ten years old tenures. And yeah, he went missing in nineteen fifty eight in like you said that retreat that's just border of Rocky Mountain national park. Yeah. It's not there anymore, but we'll give a high level. He was fishing creek bed park counselor came up to him and said, it's dinnertime was in the evening. We'll get into that later started going downhill towards the camp and one point the council turnaround. He was gone. They started searching for longtime couldn't find them. So it's a pretty crazy case very wooded area. What we're going to do. Now is I'm gonna get into the location profile and just mention before we get in a location profile. We also have a special guest for this episode as well a guy by the name of Dave Haskins. He's a director of search and rescue out in Colorado for three county region. And he's got forty six years of experience in search and rescue. So we are going to be talking to him a little bit later. Yeah, we're going to do this a little. It differently. We try and get these interviews prior to recording the episode we couldn't get Dave on until later in the next coming week. So we're going to do the show we're going to cut into him at some point. We're going to hopefully this flows while we're going to see what happens with us recording the show before the initial interview it's not going to be alive interview. We're going to be interviewing hopefully in a few days. Well, we'll get some more information on what search and rescue is like in that area. So camp Saint Milo in ST's park. It's technically right outside the park. It was a Catholic boys retreat, and it's no longer in existence. They don't have it there anymore. I'll give a little physical buildings still there. Yeah. It's not run any yet. It's not run anymore. Yes. So Saint Mel retreat was also known as the chapel in the rock was built in nineteen thirty six it was on land donated by Mr. and MRs Oscar Mailo, hence, the name the concept of the chapel and the rock was founded by Monsignor Joseph. Boasts seti. I think is the name in nineteen sixteen when he came across a large rock formation just east of Rocky Mountain national park, and he was inspired by the biblical phrase upon this rock, I will build my church. It was donated archdiocese and they made a camp out of it. So it was used as a boys camp led by priests and seminarians, and they do a lot of things if you think about today like boy scout camps. I know I was growing up, and it's you're basically just learning survival skills, and you're hanging out with other kids your same age, and you're fishing and all that kind of fun stuff. Yeah. So it wasn't anything religious baseness early wasn't like where they sent priests or anything like that. It was just a boys' camp run by seminarians in the archdiocese at that time. All right. So back to the location profile camp Saint Milo on the southeastern border of Rocky Mountain national park. It's actually at the base amount meeker when you look at pictures of this thing, you're gonna we'll post a few beautiful location. Looks amazing. I would have loved to have gone camp there. It looked it looked awesome. Yeah. Just a great picturesque. Colorado Rockies site, a really good location for the church. The park itself was established by president Woodrow Wilson on January twenty six nineteen fifteen. So in two thousand seventeen they had four point four million people visit the park. So it's a busy park. It's a very busy. It's a second highest annual visitation rate for national park in the United States. So you can imagine the summer months, you're going to be busy. You'll be fighting people on the trail. I know Joe he's probably done six fourteen footers now in Colorado. Yeah. Are a little higher than fourteen feet but thousand foot. Yeah. Feet. Yeah. We we we've done I try and do at least one fourteen or out there. I've done the Lincoln bras democrat loop. That was great. You can hit four fourteen hours in a day. If you've got the. Yeah. It's the stamina it's an all day thing recently attempted to do capital, and we went the wrong way. So it was just an uphill battle. I'll talk a little bit more about that. When we get into the story because I think there's some comparisons that make sense for what happened, Bobby. So I'm gonna get into my experience on capitol. The group of people later Mike's going through the timelines. Interesting historical facts about the area. People have been visiting Rocky Mountain national park for over eleven thousand years where projectile points have been found that are believed to have been used by people to hunt mammoths early hunters known as the paleo Indians would enter the park on. What is now called trail ridge road to hunt will now extinct mammals such as the Macedonians? Can you imagine that? Yeah. It's incredibly magin being hiking out in Colorado in mastodon walks. And even worry about very little things compared to a massive on or even a mammoth coming by. If you're not unfamiliar what a massive on or even a mammoth is picture African elephant with lots of hair in giant tusks and just beggar and a lot of Vigors a lot bigger scarier more deadly just like everything at that time. But then up to more recent times by the nineteenth century, European and American expedition started to push through the area. One of the more famous expeditions was led by Stephen long of the army corps of engineers who in one thousand nine hundred eighteen nineteen led a team to the park to document the topography the fauna and flora they encountered they're just kind of getting almost like a scientific study area. Yeah. I mean, you think back at this time. There were no maps of most of the western part of the country. So you know, how you do that you literally have to send people through the park and write everything down draw out. Yeah. I find skies habitants had no idea what their experience what type of animals. They would see so kind of going in blind. Yeah. Think about the gear. Yeah. Or lack thereof. Yeah. If they have gear it's like, all leather leg. So it's raining. It's like, oh, you it was eighty pounds. Now. It's two hundred. Yep. No, quick mino- safety stuff. So I mean, these are real pioneers. No search and rescue back happens. You're pretty much outta luck. Yeah. They're gonna leave you there by eighteen twenty five longs. Peak began showing up on maps and would eventually become the official name of the peak in the eighteen seventies. Gold fever had hit the area and several mining camps. Brought up along the Colorado river and Lulu city trail but by the mid eighteen eighties miners, deserted the camps. They had west. Yeah. There wasn't. They were finding stuff there. But it was not worth. Ward was coming out that California was where you needed to be. And meanwhile, the real smart people are on shovels.
