"All new to me like the past five years of been. that. It's been my job as technician but it's been an education as well and you know doing the various projects and they're a really came to understand too that these grasses are also a lot of the food we eat. You know like corn is an Ghani. So. It would really fascinating and also you know how ecosystems that they dominate learning about the prairies system and the Tigris vary system here what it what it was and I just I didn't have that appreciation before it's it's kind of it's really sad to think about like most of its gone. But what's left is I feel I don't I? Feel like there's just something. So magical about like a remnant prairie especially like in the Midwest, I don't know if he's been to the Flint hills in Kansas unfortunately I haven't and I'm dying to get out there I recommend that even just for like a weekend trip or something it's just so cool I mean it's from song words like where the Buffalo Roam like literally you're standing on Kaban Hill and as far as you can see is just you know grasses and and Bison That's nice. You can hear it with the way you talk about it and it's something that You know when people get bitten by the quote unquote bug of sort of just prairie or grassland ecosystems even if it's not grasses at the focus, it isn't magical thing and then unfortunately you do have that realization like Oh God it's all gone practically but I still get chills when I walk into a remnant prairie I mean if you walk along an old railway or something like that you realize. What this is not fell to plow ever you know it's it's an amazing experience and it makes you appreciate it and I said this since I've moved here. It's almost like the lack of prairie and realize realization people have about what we've done to. It makes people more passionate about a and some of the most passionate botanist biologists, ecologists I know are grassland ecologist. You know these people that spend all their time trying to understand and even try to restore these ecosystems. Yeah. Some of the people that I work with like if I'm in the field collecting and stuff i. I. Tend to kind of go towards protected areas in state parks and such and most of the time people are so helpful and interested and passionate even if they don't know that much about grasses when they. Know when I asked them if they'd like to join a long or something there'd be just so into it. But yeah, I I wish more people in the general public kind of understood the importance of grasses and General I? mean. Sometimes when I tell people I, work on grasses, asking questions about their lawn. A. Yeah. Yeah. Speaking of we were talking before we started recording of. I get a lot of lawn care specialists trying to promote like net. You don't understand what the goal of this podcast is. A well. But it's cool that you dove into this and you found a passion for grasses and and you know whether you truly sort of start to understand them or not like it no matter where you are on that scale, you realize it's a world that you open up. So many doors of discovery and like you said, there's everything from the food we eat to the species that form the backbone of major ecosystems on this planet. You know this is a really important group of grasses and I mean I was embarrassed when he sent that email I started looking I, was like Oh Yeah I. Don't I don't pay enough attention to this and I looked up Andrew Guinea. I really need to because there's a lot of species that are really important things I know things I should probably know a bit better I mean this is a large group and it's really cool one to have fallen into which is a Yeah and they're also beautiful like bigly stem and little. Like this time a year. They're gorgeous and you know I'm really big into like native RV to. Especially, after reading Doug amies latest spoke earlier this year I've started kind of like a string, all my and family. Native but. But I you know even like in Missouri Illinois, you don't even have to try hard to find really gorgeous plants the other native here. Just you know we barely have to do with new yard like I planted a bunch of grass and little bluestone earlier this year is. That's really exciting and it is beautiful and it's something that I think needs to be demonstrated more. So Kudos for setting up sort of like an aesthetic. Gardner. I'm assuming you know and I don't i. wish I could really kind of think back to my early days of thinking about what a grassland would look like or would my perceptions are expectations of it were because it's never the case and its till this day when I get into different types of grasslands I'm always surprised that the structure the. Complexity and just the overall feel of what it's like to have different species of grass oftentimes within close proximity to each other and again, a lot of those are Andro Guinea. So what makes this group? So special I mean you mentioned there's a lot of them. Some of them are really important for crops in our society but there are also from an ecosystem standpoint really important. I mean, is that Kinda what the motivation of working with the Andrew Bogan e is because there's there's other graph groups out there. Yeah. at the Danforth Center you know the big mission there is to work to to feeding the world population with the effects of climate change, growing relations and stuff like that. So a lot of the work there is food focus, but I definitely come from a more conservation approach with that I'm just more passionate about it but. Yes. So these grasses you know there's the big four in various here so that it makes up three of those switch grass dean grasp wisdom. The pretty dominant. Yeah and their mode of photosynthesis while SOC- for really efficient and fixing carbon emissions and the water efficiency

"They had at one point plan to drain the swamp to create usable language. But that eventually died due to money issues and around 1901 a different family loggers came in started harvesting the trees. They they also formed a community. They had a church a theater a machine shop General Store School eateries, even a baseball field which was important I guess so then the loggers left around nineteen twenty-six the government bought the swamp and thirty seven and there are ads still artifacts and structures in the area as well some abandoned equipment. That's their. Oh, wow. Oh, you know, there's a lot more of the story but you can look it up and read all about it. You know, just Google Billy's island off a really cool story and when you get off the boat in the swamp, there's a dock there where you can tie up and you walk into onto the land. If you go straight on the pass, you're going to run right into a fenced and Seminary right off the bat that has several members of the Lee family buried there even now so it's really really cool if you like history that a nice adventure to take yeah, you know in terms of boating in Jacob If you bring your own boat, you can you can bring your own boat going to the swamp that you do have a horsepower limit on the motor. I believe it's a a ten, but I'll have to check that and rightfully so there are absolutely no pets allowed in the Water Way at any time even if you're in your own boat, cuz you know how some campers like offering their pets along everywhere they go right? So just know that up front. He didn't think I wanted to say at no time. Did we feel unsafe? You know, I mentioned run across the gator. We thought we kept moving stop for second. We kept moving but there that that would throw that in the unsafe category, but that's just me. That's totally just yeah. Yeah, and that's I was a little nervous to be off. But I and know people say that American alligators can move quickly. Yes, I understand but this was off the trail it was down several feet down so if wage Keep moving watch what you're doing. You're probably going to be just fine. But you do need to know that you're in their habitat, but we really did not feel you know unsafe at any time. You hugged line of sight. Just keep moving keep walking. You're going to have a great time. I do want to say that the swamp boat ride was something that I think a lot of families will consider really cool. Yeah, I'm different. So, you know, it made a lot of good memories out there. So would you recommend this for families with young kids or is this more of a you know, like twins early teens family kind of trip. I recommended for any age, you know, gotta gotta know that you're you're out on the water obviously basic safety rules. That's why we're being in the water. So if you're comfortable, it's a great trip, even for small kids. My nephew is both of my nephews were there and my youngest he's he's six years old. Okay dead.

"For today's chief travel leader, interview and reconnect with Bill rename the CEO of Lazy Days RV and get his input on the industry as his company is the nation's RV authority. As they own the world's largest recreational vehicle dealerships. Bill Mary, and I welcome you back to the program. I have to say you've developed a bit of a following amongst our audience across the country as we heard from a few people over the last couple of weeks wanting to know when we're going to have you back on America's number one travel radio show. That's great to hear on. Hello again. Robert Mary. Thanks for having me on again. Great to have you back on the show with your first question. I'll just ask. You have been a lot going on out there. Askew. No in the world keeps saying we're in the upside down world. Things changed a lot for us 12 weeks ago. I know you have a number of locations across the country We've seen this week a lot of unfortunate unrest going on. But really, how are things at your locations and the other centers that you have across the country? Yeah, Way recently announced earnings and And as we said back, then, business really fell off a cliff in mid March on DH stayed there for about four weeks. And then something happened in mid April. And business just exploded and has been strong ever since then, and that's consistent across pretty much all of our dealerships. Robert Mary, so So we're feeling really good about this right now. All right. Good to hear. Nice to start off with some good news. Bill s O. Robert and I have been speaking with, you know different leaders from various sectors of the travel world over the past 12 weeks on this show, basically, since the virus outbreak shutdown so much of our country, and we've checked in with both R V, A and K O a Since you do work with many of the top manufacturers and service all kinds of shapes and sizes of RVs and campers. What do you seen in terms of demand for the vehicles and in the support services that go along with him? Yes, There's two sort of trends we're seeing. Right now. We're seeing more new entrance into the market. So I think people who because of the pandemic have become more interested in the RV vice style. We're seeing more new entrance. And the newer entrance or looking for either lower price, new product or used product. So we're just seeing a little bit of more movement towards maybe maybe a little more towards Tobel and and in all categories towards used and lower price product. That's interesting. I'll shift things a little bit with Don't say, You know when it comes to travel. Mary and I feel that we have a certain responsibility to all of our show fans across the country as well as the 415 plus stations that air this programme and our many sponsors that supporters really toe lead like we always have. And I sure that because we're working to create what we're calling the Let's go America tour that hopefully will allow us to responsibly travel and enticed others to do the same. We've been saying on air since mid March. That travel we believe will be mostly domestic. This year. It's tough when you can't fly to Europe to go plan. Obviously, it's not going to include more driving trips, whether it's for business or leisure. And our Let's go America tour that we're looking at could easily be done over a two or three week period as an RV trip departs the country and also allows to broadcast from certain places. I really want to know. Since the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association and Lazy Days RV is uniquely positioned to allow people to travel while also social distancing. What are some things that you personally recommend people listening that You know, may want to travel via an RV this year, and maybe regardless of whatever unit they're looking at a couple important accessories that you would recommend them. Important accessories. Well, you've gotta have. You've gotta have some satellite. I think just in case you want to have a wife, I, but I think most people You are enjoying time away from sort of the social media and WiFi. So I think we're seeing some families were looking at the RV lifestyle is an opportunity to Ah, uh, D connect from some of the electronic things that are in our hands. Um, you know, we have beautiful beaches in this country. We have beautiful national forests and national parks and state parks and state for us on DH. I would really encourage people Teo to take advantage of them. And that's the beauty of the RV lifestyle is you, Khun, Go! See all these wonderful places and multiple places at a time and whether you're in a total product or motor home product. It's a wonderful, wonderful experience. Keep in mind that some of the national parks to limit the size of the RV that you could bring into the park so and anybody at lazy days can help with. Ah, people figure out what what size they can have. If they're going to visit some of the national parks, OK, if you're just tuning in

"Are there parks or managers? Who are trying to fix that. And if so how sure? And that's what the Camp Camp Program I developed went around the respiration system we would with community organization. We have the campsites worked out in advance. So they were held Matt's on the Russian system and we're able to allow that community organization have accessed simultaneously that barrier was taken care of so you can identify barrier and it could have systems to get around that area so far that's very limited numbers so that the numbers of times that we did that was less than a few percentage points so. Setina make a huge difference of buddy. We know how to handle soon things them. There's other barriers as well. When could be culture so culture means food music language away? Utah the way you are. We address all those things are also very and I think when you dress eastern them back and apply so Campgrounds you can go to camp down and I feel the culture of the camp down very light of the culture in. May Not be comfortable for someone who's not coming from the DIFFERENT CULTURE WITH ADVICE TO UTAH. Walk and the kind of music you play so then stuff happens in all of our settings cabins and all that institutions sin college everywhere but there are ways we can address that in Institutional State Park could national park has very hard because have to train the staff to also accommodate different cultural groups. And the simple way. We tried to do that in as like they'll have people from Chinese come Utah for quarter. Five of making speak. Chinese come will simply translate of pamphlet into Chinese US gifted and Japanese German. You know so. We can address in foreign visitor language. Have that that's good. I mean we try to bridge the gap and that sense that's the easiest simplisafe minimal level they can achieve that because in that sense you're presumably. Let's say it's a pamphlet of inflammation pass and the way you presented. This nation is going to be of equal value to be to visitor. So if you just put translation you're giving that person would have given someone your other normal culture you've made culture if nation but just in a different language is good. It's not not bad but you see some minimal level because if we look at the bigger picture the visitor may ask you. You're looking for this the visitor from Japan or the part in this case just took a part of the country in different community wants different kinds of nation which means you'll pass this good but maybe not good enough. You need to read. Write your password in this initial altogether Customer is not just a simple might wish. It is a context very rain. So how do you determine what content is more relevant based on the respective culture in this case? If we're going to use like a Japanese client how do we create content? That's relevant to them. Sure that means you need so from that culture meaning you gain knowledge that culture or you need someone from within your organization. This is the issue of diversity comes into play and how the diversity.

"My favorite so Brian On a podcast. We talk about our favorite things. We have not told each other their surprises and while this isn't the end of this episode. What we wanted to do is we want to bring you on to this tradition of ours to tell us what our favorite things are and share. Oh yeah and become. I am honored so Brian. What was your favorite part of this trip? Yeah the whole thing Oliver. Oh Jeez well I mean. The Kayak trip was a highlight That might be my favorite part of the trip but I'm going to condense it down even further and say that the rock that we stopped at and jumped off of into the water a very distinct great memories of that one. Mainly because Whitney my now wife took an unexpected freezing cold water get to see it. I just heard her screams. I didn't see it either but I heard the splash. Everyone just turned around and like like right. Yeah yeah she. She parked her kayak trying to step up onto the rock. But Lost her footing and just like jumped back into the water which was great. Yeah I love it But in addition to that we all jumped in which was fun but then Brad surprised everyone with a with a front flip off this huge boulder. Yeah I. It was kind of like a almost like a front wheel. Flip I kinda curved but it was fun. 'cause IN MY MIND. I looked great in this senior leader. I think just great then. I took a video. I looked at the video and my didn't our guide wasn't he like wow. Can we use that for our website? Said something like that. This is how we're going to sell this Kayak trip your rock. Oh well I'll have to forward that video onto him. He's been waiting for a year looking actually wear. That was a great. Those are great part of that. I mean the whole Kayak thing was really really amazing but it was really fun. I remember being like so. Show utterly shocked by how cold the water. I wasn't properly warned our guy did not. He's like shirt jump in. He didn't say like by the way it's deathly cold like you're GONNA you're buying down right. Yeah that's kind of sick pleasure out of seeing experience that yeah. Vr faces after each of us jumped in and like definitely panic. Swam to the Rock. Yeah that was a lot of fun was what was yours. My favorite I think my favorite is probably after this trip. We did this longer. Hike through redwoods. Yes and that was really fun. I don't think you'd like to as much as you're hiking in like water shoes. That was just a miserable time because I didn't have socks on. I had wet water shoes. It was really bad not ideal but because it was love that one. That's one with all the switch backs. Yeah that one had more switch backs up and down? We went through in over. Some creeks the trees in their mind blowing there was just such a like condensed variety of them here. There was so much and it was. I think the longest or one of the longer hikes. We didn't redwood too so those nice they'll spend some quality time Mike in the deep in the woods like this and especially after the CAC trap where I'm like okay. It'd be nice like us. Our legs again. Was that the one the trail that we walk through a hollowed out Red Oak. Yeah Yeah So. We didn't meet. The tree was wide enough and mostly hollow like we're able to crawl throughout the throughout the entire length of it pretty much like there was like caves inside of trees down because they're so the trees are just so huge that you don't realize you could create a home inside of them like at least. I can live in there and just eat hikers lemonade. And make it my home right. I know where I'm at Disney world attractions and Gabe realize about. I Guess Disney's basing it off of something. It's a real life here. Back in that comes comes through like super clear absolutely. I think my favorite thing would actually be like honestly. It wasn't a place it was just the ability to do this trip all together with my family like I love spending time with you guys You know with you know Donald Whitney Emily. Brian Matt Myself. Who is just one of those really awesome times where we get to connect and see each other and just go through it They've and cooked together and Kayak and hike. It was all just about the ability to do it as a family. That was really cool to me. That's a nice Sobriety ultimately at the end of the day. What did you get out of his trim Well I guess a big thing that I got out of this trip was how I mean surprising this country. I guess this world can still be like you. Go to a place like Redwood National Park which you've heard about and you've seen pictures of redwoods but to actually be there and to see these like massive trees that look like they're from. I don't know some giants world in the rings or something is it's humbling. Because you're just this miniscule little thing compared to these huge trees it's just incredible and it just makes you and it makes me curious for to explore as much of the world's that can because this is just a tiny little part of it and you know that there's other stuff like this out there absolutely. Well that's why we keep on traveling to the national parks..

"Just over the river and just over your head you just had a million little like little flies and you could just see them and they hit you and everything but it didn't even matter because it looked like it was gorgeous. It was stunning flies. I remember it. I think I remember it was like this. Activity is like a like a fizzy stuff. The above soda. That's what it felt like. That's exactly what it felt like. Carbonation cloud of flies and it didn't bother us. See a demon bother. You didn't notice that member it yeah. I remember like early on within the first ten minutes of being in a kayaks there was like a little bit of a pile up We hit some not rocks but like some mild rapids. I guess and like Emily was first or sister. I and she kind of like Korean to the side and then I like slammed into her. And then Brad slams into me and you fell off your you. Were not into the water. You really kneeling fell face forward on onto the top of your Kayak. Because you hit me. Oh that drags on my knees trying something. Different trying different stances because it was like an open face. Oh Yeah Right. We'll make it on top of or kneel on top of and that was fun. Yeah it's always great for good. Kayak pile up little car pileup. Yeah I remember that and thinking like well. That's the closest anyone's going to get to falling in on this trip but that was not the case. Yeah right I thought that too soon. Yeah let's talk about that because I was talking with Brad before this about you capsizing. And he didn't remember. I think he was probably too far back in the group but I was right in front of you and I remember hearing it and turn around like Oh. You're you're in the water now. I really think that's when I was posing on Iraq. I hope so I feel like the situation was pretty chaotic. Like whatever was happening there must have been some like light rapids. We're in like didn't emily like throw an article. Iii or jacket up in the air. Something Lost Somebody. Lost an article of clothing and wash. Yes no she did. I remember and dumb and rivers. Somebody found it again. Yeah Yeah I forgot about that. Which was lucky for her. Yeah my my experiences during that time. So it was in light rapids. I don't know I don't exactly know how it happened. I just remember at one point going down this kind of rapidy part of the river. I just like something I must have bumped out of my Kayak and I started like I felt myself slowly like rolling out of a Kayak and falling back into the river. But it happened. It happened incredibly slowly. Slow enough where you think you think that any person doing this would have plenty of time to correct was happening but I just watched like my feet on the Kayak and I just watched them go for higher up into the air until I fell backwards and was completely submerged and yeah and it also made me realize that trying to swim while you're wearing shoes is a strange feeling sticks out of my mind like wow. I don't know if I've ever done this before but yeah it was. It was startling. I've never been tossed. Been Whitewater rafting managed to stay in the Kayak during class four rapids but not during this very tiny. Little turbulent area. I'd like judges out of like one five. It'd probably be like a one point. Five the reason why I fell out of it. I don't know what happened but it did. Yeah I remember guide who is in front. Obviously and he gave us a little bit of a heads up. It's like just casual heads up some mild rapids. You'll be fine but does and then I was like behind him. And then like I hear like slow-motion slash and then the next thing I know you're swimming to shore and yeah and I can only imagine too. I remember how cold that water was because we had all like immediately prior to this been at that big boulder or whatever and we're like taking turns jumping off into the water. So Oh yeah it was called. Yeah was like much colder than I thought it would be. That was that was really fun. Yeah but After we spent a couple minutes on that rock jumping off of it We went over to that trail. And that's where we were introduced hikers lemonade like we were talking about earlier in the episode. What was your favorite part of that trail? I guess well I guess my favorite part of it was being able to just like pick vegetation off the ground and eating it. That's what I remember the most anyway. The hikers lemonade. Looks like these like almost like four leaf clovers just going on the ground and we were told that we could just pick them up and eat them so we did and they taste remarkably like lemonade. Would Yeah I couldn't get enough of I was like stuffing Sam and then twenty four hours later. All of our mouths are broken out poison ivy. The wrong one. Yeah the guy. That's like J K. Yeah Digest this right right now. I know that was that was so good. I can't get over that I remember like because it's very unnatural seemingly as a human being like to be told while you're hiking through the middle of the woods like you know reach down and just eat something going on the forest floor and I'm like I don't I don't do this normally no is this. What foraging is morning Seattle? Love it? I felt like an island animal and it was screened for that. I felt like I could survive out in the woods by my. Yes Yeah I could live here. I could live up. Eat only this mine. Just hikers laminated. Yeah so wish I wish we sold it in stores. Yeah I agree.

"And it gets a nickname hikers lemonade. Because it's edible and refreshing and I think it tastes like lemonade or something tastes. LemMe it did. Yeah absolutely and it was weird. How God because it tastes just like edible lemonade. What is the revelation he had us all? Try it and I remember like my eyes like did one of those cartoon things where they bolted of their head out of my head because I try to. This is amazing so really was like I have a video of you behind me like picking up. The hikers lemonade continually eating along the trail. I was grazing like look like walking through the forest grabbing hikers lemonade by the fistful shoving into my mouth. It was so good it really was. I mean it wasn't a long trail either But it was a beautiful because you know that's one that people just don't go on unless they're kayaking and know about But when we got to the end it was really cool because I remember. He has a circle. Rhonda I WANNA get your picture. And then he turned it to pano mode and went up. The tree line ended a panel picture. I'm like your genius clever and you're working for your tips hunting. And we didn't even tell him to do that did we? Didn't ask for Ramic shot. But he just he just knew that was not his first Rodeo and yeah he because the redwoods can be hard to photograph because they're so tall and it's almost impossible to get them all in one go so very far away you deal and you got to Panorama helps so that was great when we come back after the break we're GonNa bring on our guest.

"Even though they did cut redwoods to make boats in housing they weren't going nuts by desecrating entire forests. No intrigue would make Entree Booth for sure. That goes a long way. And you're using it for necessity like what you what you need. And nothing more but they also had serious respect for these trees all the while like a tribal elder from the local Chai Lula tribe many reeves. She was quoted in nineteen seventy six as saying her people are people from within the Redwood Tree. So there's clearly a deep spiritual connection there and she went on to add a pretty blunt warning saying destroy. These trees destroy the creators love. And if you destroy that which the crater left so much you'll eventually destroy mankind heavy. Yeah definitely needs to be said. Yeah because according to the statement mankind was really just a couple of hundred thousand acres from being destroyed by the Creator. Really pushed to the brink. And that's because massive trees like these eventually caught the attention of lumbermen who basically started using these vast forest as giant. Atm So greedy. It was a salvation effort after gold miners initially flocked to the area but failed to strike it rich that way so they figured they would turn to what they saw the next best thing which was logging the abundant redwoods and considering there were major metropolitan areas developing nearby like San Francisco. There was huge demand for large. Would like this lugging continued for several decades until the nineteen twenties and that's in conservation started to step in This is when the save. The redwoods league created this batch of three state parks which was able to stop the rampant logging. What a great name to save the redwoods league because I'm a vendors or something like tree hugging adventures in. Yeah I I got and since the National Park destination requires so much more red tape in federal finagling not to mention that World War Two was keeping the government pretty busy redwood. National Park. Didn't finally become a thing until nineteen sixty eight and then together this quartet of jointly administered parks which I'm going to go ahead and call the fantastic four of parks. Yes they protect what's left of the coastal redwoods although terrifyingly by this point almost ninety percent of these trees had been logged. It seems sad to see so. Many people didn't see the beauty and the porn forest. They only saw dollar signs. And it's not even just the trees themselves. The forest they comprise are hugely important and protect threatened. Wildlife Steller Sea Lions Chinook Salmon in northern spotted. Owls altogether these ecosystems are so unique geologically important that this part of California was classified as a world heritage site in nineteen eighty in an international biosphere reserve in eighteen eighty three. It's always nice to see a happy ending and when we come back we're going to talk about a road trip to redwood national and state.

"So for some context. I visited these parks as part of a late summer. Family vacation with my dad sister brother and his then fiancee now wife. And if you remember when we talked about that same family trip for Lassen volcanic national park in season. One this redwood trip was the other part of that trip and even better for this part. We're bringing my brother on this special guest later in this episode so super excited to talk to him. That was a fun time. And it's going to be a fun. Chat it absolutely was so redwood was the first part of that vacation which took place in September and started with a day and night in San Francisco. Then the next morning we got up early and drove a rental car up to coach her a few hours to get to this beautiful national park. It's honestly a pretty easy drive. Pretty straightforward made all the easier by how ridiculously scenic. It is at the time this was pre are for us and we were used to road trips through the Midwest and the Chicago area which is mostly pretty boring and flat and monotonous. So I was not prepared for how delightfully entertaining. Just the the drive would be honestly. Yeah even got off the highway and stopped for lunch at some cute diner in Sonoma's which beautiful yeah it. Was this quaint gorgeous. Little Town called Healdsburg which incidentally I had been there for a workshop literally two months before we stopped here for breakfast. The hotel I was staying I was like two blocks away or something from is very diner and I remember being like totally blown away by this coincidence and everyone else in the car was like Oh okay and then had no reaction. I was like okay. That's fine I mean. No one else was on that trip with you So it's hard to relate. Yeah I mean I get it. The the silent reaction was deafening. But the food is really good just like homey. American food with bottomless Mug of coffee. Those really dense ceramic mugs. That you really only find roadside diners. Nowadays favorite kind of place. Yeah we were just like having this diner conversation the other day actually we were because we have very different diner preferences. I think we like different styles of diners. We do. I'm more like the modern kind of sleet contemporary approach in terms of design and like food. I like inventive stuff. Like Lox bagels and things like that things that are like gussied up versions of like Americana Fair I guess yeah. Mine's like two eggs poached Bacon Sausage Righto sputtered and hashbrowns cloud home fries. Don't get mixed up. Don't get me. I'm so easy. I'm so simple when it comes to. I WANNA old school diner like the fun like just but is facebook. Are you shoot? There's some- by my hashbrowns fine. Okay 'cause they don't really do that anymore but I used to do that. I've never done that. Yeah but yeah I hear you so from there from this diner. It's another like four and a half hours north to the national parks. And that's a bit of a drive. But like we said it's supersonic very very pretty so as long as you get an early start from especially relieving from the San Francisco area like we did you make time. Oh Yeah it's really not that far from the Oregon border either. Its way up there. Yeah but the further north. You drive the greener. Everything gets in the midst year things get to. It's all very cinematic and immersive in really does feel like you're gradually disappearing into like a a different universe. Is it like a universe envisioned by Filbert or something? It's like you're going to a movie and I have expected to kind of gradually transform into his character myself or does he a dinosaur leap out from the forest and start chasing down the road. Yeah and then it would like bite off the side mirror of the car while we all screamed in terror exactly and eventually though we didn't see any dinosaurs we saw a lot of bigfoot signs all over the place yeah lots those. This must be like prime big territory because we saw tons of big for like big foot crossing signs bigfoot mornings even like bigfoot themed businesses and cafes and things like that. They're really like on the fictional. Mike bigfoot stuff and I can totally see to. This seems like it would have a setting for a giant mysterious neanderthal anytime I think of bigfoot. Bigfoot from goofy movie remember that scene. I'm almost offended that you even felt the need to ask me that I remember to. Of course I have that movie like memorize scene for scene basically and it was very formative for me in my early years. And if I'm being honest it's still far enough for me now. Like I'm I to learn from that movie and grow with at and that goofy movie. Bigfoot is like my go-to Oh yeah absolutely well. Of course I mean it doesn't get much better than bigfoot He was a gentle giant really He just wanted to listen to headphones and dance. Yeah and maybe like my name goofy and Max had gotten into the car. I the movie never released lanes like what the intent was or what the real threat of bigfoot was because he was trying to break into the car. That's the whole gist. And then Max or like flings the headphones out of the car and they laid on big head and then he just starts to dance. Ann Lewis himself to song and that's when they are you know able to eat spaghetti. I don't know I don't know what happened. I I guess. I don't remember seeing foreseen really spiraling here. I think it just you're nervous But but again this is it really shows cinematic. This part of California's everything either looks like a movie or remind you movie or it is a movie. Yes which is another reason why. I'm so excited to have my brother later for this episode. He's the biggest movie connoisseur right now like by far so I think it'll be interesting to get his insight on on this park trees so contrary to what we might be leading you to believe. This place was not drawn into existence by Disney animators. So the parks that comprise the system include the actual national park portion which was designated in nineteen. Sixty eight along with del. Norte Coast Perry Creek and did it. Is Smith all three of which are state parks? And when they're all combined they contain about one hundred and forty thousand acres of America's most iconic trees and forests most iconic there. I said Yeah. That's a big statement but it really fits America has a lot of iconic trees. But these ones definitely standout. Yeah literally they. They stand way out there. Enormous I think their closest like size-wise trees are sequoias which are also huge. They're wider in the help more volume. But they're not as tall as redwoods. Redwoods definitely grow taller there. The all natural skyscrapers and I would say I would go out and say that redwoods are the sears tower of trees and I know that I know that you and I are biased. Because we're from Chicago. But I still firmly believe that the sears tower is still the most iconic skyscraper in the nation and I refuse to not call it sears tower I know it's technically willpower. But it will always be serious our in my heart. You're one of those I love it. Yeah teams here's all the way And not only are they the tallest trees on earth but there are also some of the oldest some as old as two thousand years old so even though they're not actually the largest by volume or the oldest they're distinctly special and obviously conic especially since they grow to be almost four hundred feet tall. The park service doesn't point out which trees actually the tallest in order to protect it from visitation crowds. But the tallest tree is I believe. Around three hundred seventy nine hundred eighty feet tall in the Redwood Creek watershed called hyperion. I I love the name. It sounds like a superhero. And they grow this bag because of all the constant moisture and precipitation including rain and fog coupled with the regions temperate climate and average temps that range between forty five and sixty one degrees year round. So it's just the most ideal environment for trees of this is plus. Their bark is so thick like two foot thick that it's a great natural defense against forest fires and disease but you're saying twelve inches thick. Yeah twelve thousand. Seven hundred foot thick That's crazy that's my foot. Yes and in case you're wondering how these enormous behemoths aren't constantly toppling over under their own sheer size. That's because their roots reach up to thirteen feet deep in eighty feet long and they'd really they need to be the speaking order to protect against weather and wind and such and just their own like mammoth size. So thirteen fifty. That's more than twice the size of me. Cram or you. That's you and I put together plus an extra foot or to your That's just absolutely insane. How big those are deeply rooted But unfortunately most of these trees have been logged over the years Today the national and state parks protect about forty five percent of all remaining coastal redwood trees which is definitely alarming. Yes yes it is history in the mid eighteen hundreds but it's not even that long in the grand scheme of things. Old Growth Redwood forest covered more than two million acres the northern California coast. Obviously that number has dwindled drastically things to loggers to the point where one hundred and forty thousand acres nearly half of all that remains which is terrible. Yeah yikes yeah in the early eighteen. Hundreds this part of California was home to native Americans with tribes like the Iraq. And the Wyatt peoples who respected The forest and used it and sustainable ways They've been doing it for as long as three thousand years. Absolutely.

That truly looks like something out of a film or like something. From another planet that can only be replicated through the magic of Hollywood but no Parkas doesn't much of a cinematic star as one. We're talking about today. Which is Redwood National? Park in California. It's actually officially called Redwood National and state parks and that's unique because this part of coastal North California is a network of numerous state and National Park sites jointly managed by the National Park Service and the State of California. Yes and altogether these soaring. Forests have totally sorted to movie stardom over the years appearing as the backdrop. For some pretty serious blockbusters and I mean it makes sense. These trees are truly otherworldly. What what the sky scraping trees misty beaches and foreign canyons. So I get why. The Redwood forest are like Catnip for movie directors. That's also what made this park such a fun place to visit and even better to experience as part of a family vacation redwood national and state parks may not have dinosaurs in the.

This beach has oceanic dunes which is the notes sand dunes and the newest park in the system. Actually is in the desert side pretty much right on top of where ridgecrest just had their seven point one earthquake this last which i feel that it's called onyx ranch down by the mexican border <hes> next day ends abrego state park has katina wells and what i liked about academia whilst they got a place there called the pumpkin patch and that's these conglomerate rocks there on the i'm writing sure if that's a correct term conglomerate but there's right right there. They look like pumpkins all over the desert floor and it's really a neat place to go visit. I wanna give a special mention just for you to a state recreational area called candlestick point. Okay has some significance to you. It doesn't need so that's the shoreline there. The san francisco bay were the giants to play at candlestick park. Yes i've spent many a cold evening in candlestick point thatcher you like that one so let's get onto the final group which is basically the natural areas one-third of california's coastline is in the state park system from pelican state beach up on the oregon border south to order field state beach and the mexican border at least seventy different beach each properties. I'm going to just kind of highlight a couple of them. Starting up north humboldt lagoons these are lagoons separated from the ocean by the beach itself patrick's trix point is a wonderful little state park patrick's point being the primary point there the walk around the point and the trails there south of their stinky only wilderness. This is really really hard to get to you. It is remote one lane slash two lane road out to the ocean up northern california there. It's considered the remotest in probably about one hundred inches of rain a year. You can only get to. I think it's bear gulch which is where the road ends and from there. It's all willingness taken under the park by backpacking macarthur which is at fort bragg. It has the glass beach which has glass which is basically historic orc dumping in the ocean. That's been turned around her into our trash and making it into something something the art forms are made from that south of that is schooner gulch which has one called a bowling ball beach in his word. I was looking for concretions. These the round rock engineered ball all beach the half moon bay just over the hill from where you are for the south natural bridges in santa cruz. What's neat about natural bridges is the monarch butterflies return every year there. Oh i didn't realize they had monarch butterfly growth in natural bridges interest that they come back to one of the places in some sure or south of that is seek cliff and what's interesting about sea cliff is. There's a cement ship that used to be pure there. It's the old s palo alto which is a world war. One oil tanker cbs it never really saw any use and it was salvaged is made totally concrete and they put it there for peer for dance stuff like that well. It's in total ruins now l. but it's kind of neat to see author intact for years and that's the beach where i would've learned to body surf. That's one of the nicer beaches in this era still chilly because you're still northern california beautiful beach that's inter- new brighton and sea cliff beaches. I <hes> went on during my college spent <hes> internship. They're back down towards monterey. Outside of monterey is still more state beach which also has a cop grounds point lobos. Just south of monterey has willy museum. I don't know if you've been into that or not. Point logos is got to be one of my favorite state parks. It is usually crowded these days and if you don't get there early you're going to be working out in highway one and walking in but it is a stunningly beautiful and south of that is julia pfeiffer burns or big sur big sur coastline on highway one. I most people don't stop at but there's a little the one to south dakota limekiln state park ruins of an old lyme kill production. They're interesting well. Andrew malaria state park there opposite the road road opposite highway one from five big sur's also vernice yep and that's on the beach down closer to san louis obispo. You've got us and if you've not up into the state beach it's just quaint little seaside towns this historic buildings and just a strip of state beach there that is really wonderful. I'd be south hearst castle so good place possibly have lunch there and for those that are familiar driving the one on one highway one zero one north south once you going south leaving san luis obispo. Let's blow coming down to just north of santa barbara as soon as you get to that little past there and you turn. There's the ocean front you. That's gaviota state beach where the one oh one could reconnects with the pacific relieves the the civic depending which way you're going south. Santa barbara's carpenter you state beach in this was interesting toes of the oil. It's a tar beach is that <hes> had a friend who used to summer there so i have taken oil off the bottom of my feet with lighter fluid before at carpentry and where you might be standing you think is on land. It's when you put your foot. It's going to tarnish so my caution warning. There is be careful uh-huh well in the one you skip just a little further. North <hes> is moro bay <hes> state park there with the great big moral rock <hes> also a great place. I've got an article talks about central coast great place for sea kayaking the very secluded bay very sheltered bay there behind moral rock which is a great big rock on the coast of california. You know you're right because that's a great segue to the next one because the other rocks that are sticking out his point magoo which is between ventura and los angeles and point dume which true to big granite rock sticking there in the coastline that you can hike around obviously santa monica state beach is well known to the end of route sixty six one that people me not be tour of his dockweiler state beach. I do not know this. What's great about this. One is you sit under the partner passive l._a._x. But yeah you sit there. You're sitting there on the beach and the and the jets are just taking off pretty much right over your head rather unique beach to be at and particularly if you're in aviation creation. It's a good place to spot planes. Huntington state beach obviously surf city and famous furthest surfing kaplan california and the last one. I'll mention is crystal cove gun orange county and this is a state park that has a beachfront cottage community that was developed in the thirties and you can actually rent these places out and staying gene. I'm for periods of time. It's just cute unique. Little artistic thirties ramshackle put together each toward houses being coastal. Oh can't not mention but lighthouses in the state park system has point cabrillo of mendocino point montera in pigeon point in san mateo the lighthouse field there in santa cruz and of course point sir at the big sur also in the system or various marine reserves where you can go scuba snorkeling or scuba godiva from a couple in the bay area albany and emeryville down to just south of hearst castle cambridge state marine park. It's the only state marine park we have okay so. Let's take a look at some of the scenic parks starting up north again. Castle creek's granite spires on the side of interstate five just before you get to oregon further east from that one is assume maui lava springs now. What's interesting about this state. Park is the only way you can get to it is by boating into it. There are no public roads into the state park so everybody boats over their camps and you've got these springs coming <music> outta the laba because it's right next to mount shasta of shasta lassen spectacular from there and just down the road is mcarthur burney falls which is famous for ford falls very picturesque waterfalls angel island in the bay area formerly national park service administered the entire ireland talks about about the native american heritage to the military to an immigration station it was there the western ellis island but different because it was predominantly asian emigrants and therefore not as welcome and closed for some period of time enclosed immigration we were completely closed as a country immigration to asia for awhile south aware you are castle rock which is a sculptured sandstone wasn't right about that. They had the skyline to the sea trail so it goes from there to big basin all the way to see an mentioned big base in here in a second mona lake tufa. We talked about mona lake over by boating earlier the two columns that are there. It's yeah calcium carbonate. I think predominantly structures occurs to three times my height sticking out of the lake there down southern california red rock canyon not to be confused with the red rock canyon out of las vegas. California has his own red rock canyon. Oh i'm sure is also just shaking next to ridgecrest saddleback butte. This is kind of out of lancaster area there palmdale. The area. What's interesting is that used to be called. Joshua tree state park and changed the name to confusing which austria national park so it's now called saddleback back view because of the butte that's also there but it's also has the the josh retreat senate to malibu creek state park famous for movie sets such as match in if i'm not doc mistaken i heard that may have gotten impacted by the last forest last summer i would not be surprised if you're in that area almost down by the border queen macah rancho which is the laguna mountains uh-huh between san diego and the answer abrego desert and of course answer abrego desert california's largest park over six hundred thousand acres. It's also again one of the hottest ottesen one hundred and twentieth summer. It's also the driest apparently only receives about two inches a year. It's not only famous for the desert but it has desert bighorn sheep and it was just became the first international dark sky community in california and i should mention that the pacific crest trail which is the hiking trail that goes from mexico to canada <hes> spans about two thousand six hundred fifty miles goes right through anza borrego desert state park interesting and we actually have an episode on the pacific crest trail. If you go way way back in the archives now california sanders fault it's represented by tamala spe north of san francisco and then little one call india palms next to palm springs a- and you can actually go out there and walk in the san andreas fault will be sunny india poems. I think tomatoes pays basically all water at that point where it comes to land so mountains california's full mountains sorta beauts. Just north of sacramento has the falcons <unk> plug in it is stated that it's the smallest mountain range in the world shortest world. I'm just reporting what i've read. I don't know what that means exactly okay. It's basically basically a volcanic plug.

"Yeah. It really is not just for the mexican food. Although you take for that alone it is this that but yes well preserved portion of san diego in terms of the spanish heritage. They're right right next to interstate so it's not hard to get there. No no then i think the next error would be the gold rush era so lot of sites in california corny represented in the state park system one starting up north shasta the gold mining town of shasta as a well preserved town just west of writing there is this coming for the south along the sierras plume chirico in the empire mind malakoff gold mining sites north of sacramento in the sierra nevada xxx. Some of them have still have the old mill sites <hes> like the mohawk mill it plumage tharika excellent places to go learn about the gold mining aaron californian and and when you say a mill that'd be a stamp mill i'm guessing snap mill so someplace they would crush the rock then to get at the golden side okay absolutely and of course the biggest one of all marshall gold discovery where marshall founded gold on the river for sutter said we would talk about later which is sutter's cutters mill will sort of sport actually but the marshall gold discovery is actually the oldest property in the state park system set aside in eighteen ninety so it's kind of their oldest unit right now saying you've had programs on bodey the wonderful historic bodey mighty booty yeah and this is a ghost town kept in a state of what is the traffic arrested decay yes so they don't let it fall down but they don't show repair it and and you can still see the school building so there's an old gold mining town in fact i think they've just reopened the mine relatively recently last i'd open the mill the the standard mill okay escort. You can get a tour through there but you can still see the lessons on the desks in the school and the plate still on on the table in some of the buildings covered with a layer of dust and it's a fascinating place in the high desert area to the east of of the sierra east of yosemite right next to mona lake beautiful place to go. I love taking photos in bodey similar to bodey and a little more accessible in a little more stores open and things as columbia yoga mining town by sonora this year had i was a kid i had neither little more touristy and of course nearby israel town 1897. You haven't had a chance you can actually. It's a stark park where you can hop on a train gopher train ride uh-huh. That's only maybe ten miles away from columbia so yeah. That's a great thing to do. I did those together and in the real town there is also a museum there <hes> where they have some of the historic trains beacon established. They're still keeping them running there as well. <hes> that's worth stop. Although the museum is only open certain our hours by a tour and check the hours before you go to rail town ends in the last one when little known is planetary to canyon what's special official about plastic cannon. This is just north of los angeles use the oak of the golden dreams and this goal was actually found in california i in eighteen eighteen forty two and that oak the golden dreams is still there one of the spanish friend of the landowner a relative landowners snapping into the tree and guess what he found and that was eighteen eighteen forty two before eighteen forty nine but did not trigger the goldrush like the finding it's yeah. I don't think we're out on allen. Sinn there could be you might say the military forts just a couple of them. California ford humble up by eureka were young captain ulysses. S grant was station a very depressed young captain to quit the army <hes> after he was stationed there and went back home and and minded the store for a while gosh. There's a reason for that and i love your guy went to humble state so i i know that area very well and <hes> but it does it's isolated up there and foggy in when you're talking about an area of california that is temperate rainforest so gets a little rain up there very green beautiful area but a little too far from home for him but this is before the railroad too so it's far from home when you're up there in the before the civil war the next fourth dimension is russian for for us on the coast north of san francisco at the power the further south russian settlement expansion settlement with the russian architecture and the church church. It's there. It's really a beautiful spot but that's also on of coastal windy wet area to beyond. If you didn't have to take california history there in fifth grade you may not have known that the russian trappers basically came down the coast from what was come shot guy and the bering sea and alaska alaskan all the way down into northern california going after for seals an auditor is in such the last four then would be forced to home which is on what's called the grapevine past interstate five going from los angeles north <hes> what's nice there as they do a lot of military reenactments of calvary and let's we'll also may <music> out of known. The cavalry had a camel corps. Yes there was a movie about that disney movie about that in the seventies. I wanna say yep. Hi jolly was is brought over to help train. The camels in the chemical ended up in fort to hone to for a period of time so a good place for stopping right there in the grapevine pass and i have to admit i have seen science and i have never hops h._e._w. N._p._s. on netflix sometime go oh into the state capital of sacramento because there's so much their old town sacramento old river town. All the historic buildings were there. Which is where the railroad museum is than male museum is <hes> sutter's fort which was the home of fort a john sutter and of course also there i mentioned was the indian museum director together most i would realize the governor's mansion in leland stanford or railroad fame his mansion or both state parks contouring in downtown sacramento in a little a bit further out from sacramento is a town called woodland in the woodland. Opera house is a fully functional nineteenth century opera house. It's one of four left in the state. They do performances there. If you're into opera catch that one out some of the other historic places just in general in california up north in weaverville is one call to josh josh house j. o. s. s. say taoist temple in is gorgeous. It's well preserved over one hundred years old. It's just a beautiful beautiful temple and but it's a little off the beaten track jack london's home near sonoma isn't state park system. The rider and i don't know if you're familiar with marconi any in marconi wireless stations well his his place on the coast by point reyes. The marconi is actually a conference center in the state park system. The state system also also has a dairy ranch. North santa cruz called wilder ranch. That's preserved a working dairy ranch. It's interpreted. I don't know how i haven't been there in years. I'm not sure how much the barnes learns and the and the cows and chickens are all still there and i. I'm guessing still probably obviously to do the interpretation. They still have things going on there. The biggest one in california that everybody knows about next would be hearst castle down on the central coast which houses the largest collection of european antiquities and california and it's just at her home and it's beautiful. I remember as a kid they used to have wild animals zebras and they did and stuff like that so there anymore but <hes> yeah yeah they're gone yeah. It's it's a monument to what money can buy <hes> but it's beautiful but this is somebody who would import whole ceilings from some church in europe and then have his architect builder room around or it is interesting and of course this is william randolph hurst from the yellow journalism from the early nineteen hundreds inland from hearst castle is a town called allen's worth in its colonel allen. Were stay stark park. It's listen to larry county. It was a town totally financed and governed by african americans. It's a little off the beaten path from ninety nine highway ninety nine and highway five. They're into larry but <hes> the towns preserved in it was entirely an african american community night highly suggest people take a chance danced. Stop in and see that place couple of the last places now down l. A. will rogers home in santa. Monica is in the system and a place called watts tower. Whoever ooh watts towers probably the smallest state parks unit. It's only point one one acres but it's a cultural arts park that preserves is the watts towers that were created by these artistic towers created by simon rodeo and last place historically. Most people are not familiar with california being being a huge citrus state. The citrus industry is represented by the california citrus dana solich park in riverside okay and you can go there and see a working orange orange trees yeah and making that orange juice and take what you see with you so hopefully they still allow that but it's a neat little place talks about the citrus industry which was one of the huge moneymakers in california california course as we said has all sorts of things including recreation asian and not to be outdone or the lakes and california so one of the small slakes that i've always liked is a place called ben bow lake up one to one going north substan- francisco to the oregon border and has a really cute historic ian right adjacent to it. I don't know if you've ever seen that going up to one on a stop. In stead bendigo oroville north of sacramento tallest earthen dam in the united states clearlake which is a huge natural lake is to report it to be the oldest natural natural lake in north america now. I'm not saying red eye. Somebody's gonna have to you but clearly a part of that is in the state park system other reservoirs include folsom lake johnny cash fame folsom prison right next door folsom lake saint louis reservoir <hes> south of where you live there on the past ray in the central valley valley millerton lake the foot of sears actually used to be a national park service area before it was turned over to the state of california so they both directions the other lakes cast silverwood lake perez and southern california one that people don't really think about too much is assault and see in the desert shirts. Spy palm springs right. It's to be about one hundred twenty two summer. It's all one of the lowest places to be about two hundred in thirty feet below sea level in it's supposed to be the largest lake in california and i'm guessing that's somewhat natural even though artificially created and there are other lakes have recreational areas lakes. We can't forget lake tahoe so much do around lake tahoe donner memorial real which was the fateful campsite of the donner party traversing new sierras <hes> south has added sugar pine point which has opulent mansion when the people of money used to have mansions on tot lake tahoe summer homes the helmet mansion that sugar pine point is were seeing south of that one is the deal bliss. It has the highest elevation lighthouse in the united states rubicon point light. I'm guessing that's because it's on a lake. It's not technically what did you think of when you think of postal.
