I'm not trying to scare you away or anything like that. Because obviously i would love to have this happen. But you know keen isn't exactly the most freedom friendly town in all of that. I have heard that the people on the government of came. Don't actually like freedom. No it's work crew. It's one of the most heavily taxed cities in new hampshire. Like if you were going to buy a piece although you would not be subject to taxation where you're talking why not. He's going to be in the keen city. Limits is it within the king within the city limits and an end the towed enforcement officer at cain city hall would be the one to talk about whether or not we would ever be allowed to put. Rv poll through on this piece of land. That's what you're gonna come up against is the regulators are not likely going to be happy with this proposal and you'll have to bribe them or whatever if it's ever going to even happen legally which is another questions to whether or not you care about that sort of thing but if you do then it will likely be a fight.

"Might be a heat sink more built up have more structure more asshole. My house is stucco and has ah, South facing wall and I in the evening I can stand in front of it and feel the heat coming off of it. So so Structures, buildings, roads, patios, etcetera, absorb heat and then give it off a tonight. And there might be enough of that in Lodi to last the whole night. The other is that the there was snow on the top of the Sierra and Cold air sinks and so in cold air would be coming down the mountain. And and settles on the bottom of the valley, but also in the bottom of the valley that communities the closest to it than 99. X is the the wind maker. That's the cars go back and forth. I don't know. What stirs up the air. And so you don't often like on a foggy day. It's okay to drive down the freeway because the air has been all mixed up, and it's not foggy right on the freeway. Not always. But many usually get big lights, too. Yes, that's true or those yellow ones that you right through the Through the fog. Well, what about all these weather forecasts that say rain possible north of Interstate 80. It's like what is magical about Interstate A. Yeah, That's a good point, and that's been true for for decades. And I guess I'd have to see on a topo map where it sits. Where the hills are and where the Valley Circus That's very powerful stuff. Yeah, that's maybe it's the emissions from cars. They stopped the rain. It could be when, after 9 11 When airplanes student fly there was a noticeable difference in temperature. We notice a big difference in air quality. During the first waves of the pandemic back in March, when your keyboard right stop driving, right? Beautiful. Yeah, it was. It was very nice. But getting back to last Monday's freeze because I really did catch a lot of people by surprise. I think Many people. Robbie didn't cover their Citrus. And the next day they went out and they looked at it. Even if temperatures were in the upper twenties and say I made it. It's okay. Maybe I don't need to do that. It's never the first frost that causes the damage. It's usually the second or third punch that finally does the plant and why do you think that is Think plants have built in resistance built in tolerance. Yeah, they do. They do. They have a new ability to quote control moisture and get rid of moisture so that the cells become more full of other things. Alcohols, which don't freeze is easily and And solids, which lower the freezing temperature that I would imagine that also, the soil has cooled off and the structures around it have cooled off. You know the fence and the patio in the house. Overtime. Yeah, well, that's true, too. As winter goes on, and the days get shorter, those reflective services become less of a heat sink. Right. So I guess there's less heat to collect right so I could see how again that second or third punch of Frost In damage of plants, So I think what I'm getting at is just because you made it through the first time. I don't think you'll make it through the second or third time. Cover those plants if they're young. I don't cover my Citrus. My Citrus, Sir. I've lived in the house 10 years and they were mature plants when I moved in, and One is suffering. But the other other 12341 is young. The other three are very densely vegetated. The uh Yeah, it's what do you do it, But I think when you cover, especially the young Citrus trees, they need that protection that frost cloth should extend all the way down to the ground. That's the trick about covering for frosted always needs to go all the way to the ground. There's a Citrus tree down the street. It looks like it's wearing a Yonica. They sell stuff like that. And they like shower caps, too. You know, they come down to your neck. That's not going to do. It's going to exclude pests. That's all it's going to do on the youngest to might work for a second. What we're trying to do with for us cloth is collect the heat that's coming out of that heat sink, which is the ground into collected in the canopy of the plant and it in order to do that, you need to cover all the way down the sides. Right and not tie it to the trunk of the tree, either. It's your wife. The wider it can. The wider it is at the bottom, The more heat you're going to collect in the canopy and more protection. Your plant's gonna get from the ground beneath. Then the question arises. Well, does that mean I should rake away the mulch that is beneath that tree? No, that's That's going to It's does slow temperature changes. But whatever. Too, so I can argue both sides. I know. No. And I've heard both arguments. Yeah, I think on a wider scale, I think if you own a Citrus orchard, Yeah. Breakaway the mulch because it's a big area for the backyard garden is not gonna make that much difference. Watch football. Yeah, Yeah, yeah, Something else? Yes. So you're raking it away to collect more heat during the day, right? Right. And then You cover it, and you trapped that the heat comes from the sun into the soil. You collect it, And then at night you cover the plant with the frost cloth and out comes the heat and it's trapped in the fresco. That's why I will have a warmer night on a if it's cloudy. Is that that collects the heat closer to the Earth. I think that's what saved us from more for us. After Monday morning, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, there were sounds Yeah, few more clouds moved in, too. Sort of make us Shall we say, happier cap on it. Put a cap on it. All right, let's take a break. When we come back. We've been getting a lot of email questions. Let's delve into those when we return. Debbie.

Bruce Springsteen was Sam or All right in the street Been doesn't get much better now. Ah and Madison Square Garden. Alright, November issue of New Mexico magazine is ah, You know, it's kind of, uh, no, it's it's it's another. Another amazing issue really is. I mean, it's just a fact. Jam packed. You can shop. You can read you, Khun. Seeing wonderful pictures on you have white Sands, The I guess, probably the newest national park in the entire United States. As a cover photograph. Yeah. Incredible work. By Elizabeth Miller Writing writing the story about white Sands. She went deep. She went deep, and she went and and a lot of angles when, when readers open it. It's not one long piece about white sands. It's many, many different pieces. Going getting into the science behind it the fossil's plans we teach you how to sled down the dunes where the historic architecture is all kinds of great stuff that you probably never knew other than it's a really beautiful place, and there's no other place like it on Earth, right? There's a lot of cool stuff to learn about it right and she goes down. What's below the sand, which is also kind of cool. He hadn't thought about that. You know what is the actual water? Yeah. Raise lots of water, right? All right. So let's start with that. Tell us about that piece is called Sand Blast in the November issue of New Mexico magazine will give you guys a code in a while where you can purchase New Mexico magazine for a great price and give it to all of your out of state friends. For the holidays. So one of the things with having our new editor in chief Steve Play Dora is that he's bringing Ah, newcomers perception to us and so a lot of times we would you know we'd get pitcher pitches from people saying I want to do a visit to white sands. And we'd say Yeah, we've done that. Give us something new and I'm Steve's point of view. It was it's all new to me. So give me all of it. And and so, besides Elizabeth, we deployed Maria Manuela and Diana Alba Solar who lives down in Crucis. To take little bites of it all over the place and Justin reading it. You'll kind of get a feeling like you've been to the National Park and Really prep yourself for an actual visit there. It's It's one of these little jewels. Kind of like Carlsbad Caverns, your bandoleer where you kind of if you lived here a long time you start taking it for granted and not visiting it that often And yet when you do It blows your mind every time. And White sands in particular. There's so much Geology and biology going on there that you may not even notice Unless somebody tells you Well, look for this particular plant. Well, pay attention to how that dune is shaped versus that dune over there. That's telling you something about the water underneath that the wind flow that sort of thing. The last time I went the white sands and get this and get this thing where, when I visit national parks, most of themselves being Dana's that have topo maps of the National park on them into neat little collection to have I went to the gift shop. And so I don't see that you have a topo map and they looked at me like I was not very smart, which which I deserve. Get them on. You can't do a topo map of because the dunes are always moving. It's a moment in time, any any any sense of where the dunes might be So one of the other things the story tells you is some trails that could get you started on it feeling your Your feet there, and one of these days when camping is allowed again, there's a really cool back country site that you, Khun go to and whether you go on a full moon night so that you can hike because that the moon glow off the white sands is incredible. Or if you go on a moonless night, so that you have that Milky Way appearing above you. It's a fantastic experience. I have done that before recommended it's 10 out of 10 camped out at White Sands. Yeah, okay. An amazing experience getting scared. No, it was fascinating. And they were actually like some night maneuvers going on from the missile range next door, So seeing that stuff going on, it was like this sort of 22nd century meats. Ancient time, all in one place could be in a planet far, far away. You also have a really cool thing that Craig Vartabedian does of had a photograph. White sands like a professional. You have a photograph of a Like a I don't know. Like A small pinnacle of of sand with a plant on top of it or Iraq or something. On top of it. It is it is a very strange picture, but taking pictures of white sands. Besides sliding down, you know, surfing down the sand dune. There's gotta be people favorite favorite past time, right? They pose exceptionally well. It's kind of hard to take a bad photo at white Sands. But what Craig's pointing out is that to take a really great photo of them you're looking at Time of day. You're looking at finding a focal point like that plant on the pedestal, which is one of the things that plants do out there is create, like many dunes like they're trying to get away from something..

"Folks. Welcome back to u. S. T o R C dirt radio on FM 96 1 am 11 70 answer. Alright at this segment, along with all the other ones are brought to you by Wayne Miller Tire out Lovely Santy everything from a tiny tired to a big tire tractor tires. That's right inning you need and Fix, Replace repair. Whatever it is, Wayne is the man so and when you do hook up with him, just thank him for his support of S T O R. C 30 radio? Yeah, he usually donates a set of tires to us for our off road fund around the losses it off Red fun run. Unfortunately, we had to postpone int this year. So in lieu of that, he is that He's throwing some money at your own. Cem Cem money at us Well, times. I am idea. Yeah, right. So let's for no further A do you want to introduce our our guests are expert We have 2017 rebel rally. Participle. Hans Dad. Hi. Thanks for having me So I know you're depressed. You're not there. You're not there this week, but we're gonna work on that next year. S O first off, tells a little bit about the rebel What is so I got to start off by saying that today I am wearing my 2017 rebel rally Competitors vests, and it's all in support of the rebel rally that's going on right now. It goes on from October 8th to October 17th, and it is eight Days of competition of women. I'm sorry women on LY teams, the driver and navigator. It starts in Lake Tahoe. And then it traverses its way through the California and Nevada desserts all the way down to Glamis, and then you come. It ends in Glamis the final day. And then you head to San Diego for the awards gala. So today is I believe the second day of competition they are on a It's a transit day and transit days mean that they're going from one base camp to another base camp. And so today, they will probably be driving about 259 Miles. Ah, they'll probably be following their road book. On and they will be also having to use their compass and topo maps to find checkpoints. I think today they have 19 checkpoints today. You gotta go to a chai check, so it's hard to know if you get to the checkpoint. You're given longitude and latitude point. There's a few different ways You cannot use any GPS. So there's no electronic devices whatsoever. And you have to navigate to each of these checkpoints. And you get points for each of the Czech ones. You make it two On DH, how many you can hit and there's three different levels of the checkpoints. There's green, and that one is indicated by a green flag. Or maybe a member of the rebel rally is there somebody had to check my money Mark you off so way have score sheets. We have a GPS tracker that we can't see our GPS. But when we press a button attracts our location or pins. So when you get to your checkpoint, you press a button on this tracker, and it will mark your that's also in the event you do break down or have heaven forbid an action that they confined. You could definitely use the emergency button and But then there's you are removed from the competition say for aid. S so you can press the pin and just stay where you are until the next morning, which is what we had to do in the last rebel when we were stuck in Ah Dunes Bowl. And the sun went down and our vehicle wasn't equipped with. Ah, offer lights so we couldn't see our way out of the sand bowl. So it wasn't until the morning when the sun came up, And that's when we were actually able to see a path out of they could drive out there. Oh, yeah Way. Set up a little French bistro, type AA AA type table with some chairs and use the jet boil and made some memories for that evening, so It was nice. It was a beautiful night sitting on the dunes looking at the stars, so we made the best of it. And I just want you folks to know she's eaten memories, but if she would have made it to the base camp It's a Michelin five star chef. That's cooking for these people. So don't feel bad for Yeah, so definitely definitely York are pampered once you get to base camp. Well, you're still sleeping in a tent. You have just a few amenities, a shower and a toilet. But they do feed you. Yes, And that's wonderful, Sonu. So let's say you So basically the end of the rebel rally. They they just add up all your points check points, so that's what I was saying about the checkpoints. The checkpoints are three different levels. There's the green level, which was marked by a flag. There's a blue level that's actually harder to see and harder to find, because it's actually just a re barb staked in the ground may be in our wash or may be behind the Bush. Ondas painted. The little top is painted a little blue. So it's harder to see those and then the last words of the black checkpoints, which are marked by nothing. Nothing at all. How do you know there is a button right? So well? Yeah, You hit the button when you believe you're there. But it's all based on you marking your on the topo maps using ruler compass and and just knowing your location, you know, marking your longitude and latitude in those points, But not only are you giving longitude latitude, there's some situations where you have to go from Checkpoint one. And then you have to take a heading. So of course, like, so they give you a direction and then maybe a distance of how far you have to go at a certain specific heading and you have to put into consideration mountains, boulders, rocks washes that are going to be in your way as well. So says go four miles that way, except as a mountain 25 to 10 Miles. Right. So you have to, like, figure out Well, okay. You have to do the math. Exactly. There's a lot of math, especially as a navigator. It depends on if you're you you have Tio take you have to convert kilometers two miles if you don't have kilometers on your vehicle, so everything's done in kilometers during the competition, So I had to use a calculator a lot because we your vehicle did no, no. We just didn't know how to switch it before they blocked it off because once because it has GPS on it, so they have to block off the computer. So we had to have changed it before Tech inspection, which we didn't dio so technically, I had to do all the calculations and conversions on the road with the map. Push that panic button at the start Finish line I got no no, I.

Oh, so that is Susan Herrera's district on. She also represent three Areva County. All right, so that's a great area that is a fabulous area were born and raised. I am from the Central San Joaquin Valley in California, Small agricultural town called Madeira Your Fresno. I moved to Taus 12 years ago. All right, so that that's your history is like agricultural history from San Joaquin Valley. Yeah, my parents. My grandparent's Everyone in my family were farm workers, so that has really defined us and And his connect connected us to the land. So I come from that background. I wasn't a farm worker myself. But I grew up surrounded by those fields when you left when you left, Madera, California Where'd you go? Where'd you go? When I was 17 years old, I went to Harvard College was the second person in my whole family to go to college. My brother went to Columbia. So that was a really big deal for for my family for me and my brother, both team move out and so far away. How'd you get such a good early education, secondary education that you could get into Harvard and he could get into Columbia. So from the very beginning a ce faras. I can remember my mother read to us. My grandmother read to us. We we were big readers, And that was the The idea was that you know, we could read and educate ourselves out of poverty. You might my family. They're They're hard working people, but they didn't go to college. So that was the dream of my of my all the matriarchs of my family. My mother, my grandmother. You. They put us on a path to education into to better ourselves. All right. So you got out of Harvard. What happened next? Oh, man, I graduate. By the way, did you graduate? I did graduate AA cum laude in and magna cum laude in my field of anthropology and I moved to New York City. Because, oh, man, that city was just so compelling and it was time I lived there for six years. I did a lot of things, including I started Internet company whose rise and fall you can actually view it's called started dot com. I made it a little bit mostly rolling my eyes, but it was a good experience for me to see what business was like and New York is very exciting in the in the middle late nineties now and then I moved to Indonesia. Jakarta, Indonesia in November of 2000 won so right after 9 11. Going to the world's largest Muslim country in the world. You're extremely adventurous. I do like adventure. I do like adventure for sure. All right, since you've been in town is what you've been doing. Well, I have been raising Children. I have a nine year old and a six year old and I have been running the Taus Land Trust, which is a land based organization that works to protect Landon water all around northern New Mexico. You have a website Your campaign, Kristina. Yes, it's Ortez O rt easy. Ortez. You see that? Ortez four number four and m dot com Okay. Mexico dot com. Excuse me. Do you have any opposition in the race? I do. I have a Republican candidate that I'm running against her name is Linda Calhoun. Okay, any any events scheduled or you have it had any joint events with her? Any debates on zoom or don't say coming And we have a debate coming up on Thursday at 6:30 P.m. that house news is moderating that debate, so it'll be on zoom. That's really strange and very exciting. I don't know I loved it. I love the excitement from the crowd that I really get a lot of energy from that. So we've all had to manage our expectations in other ways with regard to zoom and debates, But that's tonight or next Thursday. Next Thursday. Next Thursday on Zoom probably go the towels, news website and find a link there. It'll be there yet. Okay, 6, 30. All right, All right. So you're campaigning on what I know it's it's difficult. You can go to Dover door to door We just talked about. You know, the governor's office and department held just put out this missy to both parties, and all that about everybody has to be the rules. No. No public gatherings where a mask and all that kind of stuff. And I guess that was a result of that women for towels. Bus trip anyway, how you what he campaigning on? Ah, well, the way I'm campaigning is really through social media, making lots of phone calls, direct direct voter contact through the phone and through e mail and text and things like that. So that's how that's how I'm campaigning. But what I'm campaigning for eyes for the people of towns, too. Build a better community right here. You know the reason why we can't go door to door is because of Koven 19, Right? And Koven on Ly highlighted the issues in our community that were already there, right. It's shining a bright light on joblessness or job in security, food insecurity, You know, housing issues, all the lack of health care. All those things were already here. But Kogan 19 just blew it up in our faces. And so I am campaigning for us, working altogether in community with the delegation. To bring jobs here in towers to make house affordable to invest in the infrastructure, such as early childhood education. Elizabeth Warren talked a lot about that How childcare is infrastructure, You know, I like to think of it as early childhood education is infrastructure. That's what allows our Children to learn and be better prepared for school but also It's what got me to work full time when I was able to take my Children to you and I'm kids Campus two to begin their learning, So that's why I'm running for mayor. Have you run for office before? I haven't Well, I mean, I did in 1990. I ran for student body president and I won. So it's been it's been a while. But I have run advocacy campaigns for issues you know, to protect our land and water to protect our public lands. So you know, I sort of I really understand how those things work. But this is this is new for me. Running. Okay, Um So you running running this environmental conservation group in and house you mentioned issues in tells you're not talking about towels because houses utopia. It's all ex hippies. Everybody's rich. Everybody's progressive, and everybody is happy and tell. So you're talking about the outlying areas like Cuesta and maybe a royal Honda, right? Because everything is perfect in the town of towns. Well, we have our challenges, right? The community house. You had one of the early on you had one of the worst rates for Cove in 19. House was and then we put the kibosh on it. You know, people in the Pueblo closed down the town and that's what we had to do to protect our people here on DH and those, But those issues. The issues that were here before really are throughout the county. We have job issue job in security issues. We have a gig economy here. That really, really makes it challenging for our community, Tio You need to put themselves in a better place. Plus where that you know, the utopia you mentioned. It does draw a lot of people from a lot of places who come here and buy second homes. So that's something that really has an effect on the culture and community of our house. So you know, running Teo ensure that we can Get people the jobs that they need and the places they can live and to feed their families..

"Afternoon 3 p.m. talking about the outdoors of New Mexico, and we'll probably expand to regionally. As well. Joining us now is the executive director of Wildearth Guardians. John Horning. John, How are you? I am. Well. Good morning, Richard. I am Not always well given the context of the Koven times, But I am well this morning. Alright. Ah Wildearth Guardians is what Wildearth Guardians is a regional environmental advocacy organization that is fierce. And that is active on many different fronts to protect our land, wildlife, air and water. All across the west all across the west. Alright. Ah, We talked to you on a fairly regular basis aboutthe work that wildearth guardians does, But we can't talk to you today about You and your enjoyment of the outdoors in New Mexico along with your Children. So obviously, you know the work you do affords you the opportunity to get outside. You need to study the outdoors. But also, you know, just as a new Mexican, Do you take advantage of the outdoors? Oh, my goodness. Yes, it is. My salvation in these times in particular, but it's always been a big part of my identity. And you know we haven't Scripted this call, but I actually just finished. Ah, five day backpack in the Pecos a few weeks back with my Twin seven year old boys and had a great time saw a bear. Um, just went to a part of the pay coast that I actually had never been to And I realized, you know, the pay Coast is kind of our backyard for a Senate fans. Ah, and it's I always knew it was big, but on this trip in particular had a sense for you know, the Pecos is this big? It's wild. It's 1/4 1,000,000 acres of Of wild country and We? We went over to the Rio Mara, which is a tributary to the Pecos. Um And it's a big, wild watershed that is entirely Within the pay goes wilderness, and I did not. Know how vast and wild and beautiful that little sliver of the Tecos world in this really is. All right. So twin seven year old boys are they at the stage? Where Oh goodie! Oh goodie! Oh, goodie. Or the stages I owe Dad. We have to do this again. Do they like it? Well, you know what? Um, it's a little bit of both. It's a little bit of both. They they actually did not like The backpack in. Um But once we got there, right, it's right next to the river. They were in heaven. And it was the same we've had did a Siri's of three day hikes from our kind of base can write. And you know, there were moments where they're like our what are we doing? And then there are moments of Absolute and I'm saying this from their perspective, absolute sheer bliss. That is great. Alright, So you go up to the Pecos. Ah, you drive to the trailhead. There is a trail. There is a trail I was that was the difficulty level. You know, it actually was not. It was perfect for them Slight uphill grave, then flat, then rolling as you drop down into the Rio Maura Good trail, the Pecos says. Lots of well worn well traveled. I mean, there were other trails that we took that played out where if it had just been me, I would've just dove off into the unknown, But with my two guys and a wife back at home, I did not want the stories to go south on the way we had to turn around because the trail just disappeared. How did you discover the trail through a book through maps? You knew about it? So I'm I don't have many addictions. One of them is ice cream, The others maps. I love maps as well. I'm a map junkie, and so so topo map. Ah, yeah, a topo map of the Pecos wilderness. You know what's interesting about this trip is we went up to Cowls and we were gonna go. Punch. Whelan's a little campground. That's beautiful, and we were going to go off sort of on this more westerly side of the Pecos Willers and there was a fire. There were two helicopters. Poland water this was about for so weeks ago, there was a team you'll fire up there. And so it was totally closed. So I had to make a Very nimble plan B, um up there, and I ended up going as I said, to an area that I had never been to which which was turned out to be lovely. Our guest, John Horning, executive director, Wildearth Guardians, Richard Easier Housed on experience New Mexico. So good trail for 27 year olds, You know, maybe Ah little gentle for Dad. Dad lies to climb. Dad likes to get off. I mean, you let you love to go up to Baldy loved to get up in and out and over the ridges and climb right? I do? I do. I actually have, um, I mean, this isn't New Mexico, but I've hiked. I think 45 of Colorado's 14 er's. So I've got about 10 more to go to do all of them and No, there's nothing like the feeling of being above treeline. And exposed on the rock and Climbing up to a summit on DH. It's just a It's a great feeling. Is that the test? Is it the view? Is it to climb itself? The exertion would you get off John? You know when I was a younger person it was about A summit. I mean, it's sort of classic, but it really is true in my life experience. It's It is all of the above and has become more about all of the above. I had a decade in my life where I I relinquished that desire of going after summits, and then I realized You know what the.

"The YouTube as well the best of clips every single day, go to YouTube and search the D a show and you'll find us there. What a run. It has been for our next guests. Another victory in the first FLW tackle warehouse, pro circuits. The tournament. He's a guy that has dominated professional fishing over the last calendar year. He's part of Major league fishing. M L F Joining us this morning on this show is Jacob Wheeler, Jacob. Good morning. Good morning. Thank you for having me on my pleasure, buddy. Thanks so much. And congratulations. There's a lot of publications that air ranking you to the number one angler right now in the world Has it feel to be ranked number one? And it feels good. You know, it's just Hey, listen, Resistance sometimes is, uh, gotta keep working hard because only someone working order that he's trying to top this sport so it is definitely humbling. Looking at that in the last years thinking back 10 years ago, you know, 10 years back it sort of for me. I'm looking at it like man. You know, it would never guessed. I was here at this point in my life, so Very humbling, Very exciting, but also understand. Hey, listen, stop working. So tell our listeners what it's like to try to outwork the competition as a professional angler. What is a workday look like? What is the research look like? What does that entail? So I've been I spend about, uh, 2020 hours. Um, give or take on the computer before I prepare for a major event looking aerial photos. On the topo maps researching the body of water that I'm going to. If I have history there, then I sort of get an idea. And then I'll spend all day reading Rod, so I'll actually sit there and all right down, OK? I want 35 rocks going. Obviously don't need all this. Bot still fishing, but See in my profession. I sit there don't have 35 rod. I want this bait. I want this alliance eyes. I want to do that, And I'll have all those raked up so that it takes a little while there and then Then you get all that sort of regret that pretty sort of work out free free tournament stuff pre practice and then go out there and practice and actually put it out out there on the water. Trying to dial it in before the that's sort of how it goes a lot of time and effort and a lot of time spent at the house working on stuff getting ready getting all your stuff together before you get on the road. The number one ranked angler right now. Jacob Wheeler joins us here on the show. So if you're a sports fan, it's kind of like putting together a game plan or some type of You know, Game plan going into a big opponent. What you're doing is research game planning strategy before you even hit the water, which I think a lot of people might not even realize there's a lot of strategy in all of this. Dollars a ton of strategy. There's somethinto amount of fat that goes into it all. And you just have to think about it. As I mean. Weather changes things you know, pressure from other anguish, change things Do you have to understand? Like OK, when you go over the game plan, you're always always seems. You know, and it is a gut feeling thing that you know, you sort of just get either. However, you don't got feeling like I need to go Do this or I got to go do that, And it's sort of hard to explain, But it just happened and so That's the biggest thing in any in any sport. You know, I got a buddy of mine that plays Boys out West plays plays for the Clippers. Paul George and I, We fish together quite a bit grew up until like we talked about it all the time. He's like he's like, good job. Congratulations. The jobless, not We just talked about the occupation. We talk about basketball and sort, of course. His side of the deal obviously is a lot bigger, Richard, but it's It's also cool to have him out there on the boat with me. Sometimes I didn't realize you and Paul George were tight. When did you guys meet? So we grew. I said I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. So actually, um, we met when I was probably around 20. You started We started fishing together, Mom right there when he was playing for the Pacers, And so that was for me. That was unlike any man. You want to push in, and he enjoyed it. We fished a couple tournaments together, actually, one up. One a couple little local tournaments right there, and in the end when I grew up, and I was up there in Indianapolis, and so from Mary's had a celebrity bashing tournament out there and out there in L A on steak last few years, you know, I always would fly out and his partner for that for that event, so there's been a lot of fun. Um yeah, So it's sort of like to see that you know it's a little bit. It just has a lot of passion. I always laugh when I do not want to live. I don't place people won't be fishing with your special vision. Waken Dio. How is he? As a fisherman compared to his basketball skills mean Paul George is a great basketball player. But how is he is an amateur fishermen. You know it's crazy, So I told him this one time. I remember this. We're efficient Tournament on my cable..

"He just really wants to teach us about various aspects of this world. And it's getting in the way of choices I suppose Hit Me with pay sixty four and five before again. I know you tried to alert your friend of this fire. Nasha tells you angrily and it doesn't matter the place I'm taking you to is not on your Topo maps. You better just follow me because otherwise you're going to be lost in a terrible fire. What makes you so sure on you know better than the Rangers? I thought you worked with Erica and I have says nausea and I know what some people do to me walk lands. Every fire happens for a reason. And we're going to deal with this one in our own way. Vigilante Justice. Yes okay. I'm on board now. I don't know if I would have picked Georgia peach if I knew this was going to get so Dr. You're intrigued by what Nasha is saying. Even though you know you're about to do something dangerous you remember. Erika's warning about this area and her saying something about me walk but you can't remember what it was. She said you follow Nasha silently through the forest for fifteen minutes behind outcroppings of rock and never following any path you begin to get a whiff of smoke in the air you click the radio on and off and nothing happens. Nasha smiles at you. That radio will not work here. Darling she tells you. Oddly you feel less afraid as you walk with her she moves confidently even without a path and you find that by following close behind her. You can move quickly as well. You travel this way for nearly an hour until the air is truly thick with smoke. You still do not see a fire. Turn to the next page. Well there's the fire there there is what looks like a fire and a lot of people at the bottom of some sort of Fiery Hill. Waving at it okay. We'll find out finally US. You see reach a flat outcropping of. Um as a TYPO. They're finally you see reach AFL outcropping of rock and NASHA gestures out. There is a dramatic ravine a deep sharp gully across the way a domed pick domed peak thick with evergreen trees is blazing blazing row with growing forest fire several Milwaukee. Standing on the flat rock waving sticks tied with close at the fire. They glare at you and then look at Nasha questioning. -Ly Fires in the forest represent imbalance in the world. Now she tells you we will protect the land in our own way without interference from the outside after all it is the outside that has led to so much destruction of the earth. Already she motions for you to join her in the circle. Now that you've learned to be a smoke jumper you will learn the cooling down ceremonial. Let me walk as well. You stand beside her. There's one more thing she says we've reached a place that the rangers don't know about. I'm afraid you can't go back or else you my show them the way the end so we're just prisoners forever. It's like yeah or is it like a weird dances with wolves thing now. I need to go back to see all right so we started from page twenty seven. Yes I'd go on. We GO ON PATROL. Turn to page twenty. Yes next page turning the page. Thirty to thirty four. Seventy two seventy two dark right now. Okay Seventy two turn to page seventy four seventy four. We went to look. We wanted to try looking for the campus. Turn to page forty eight. The other choice would have taken us to page forty to go with NASHA TWO TRILLION GORGE OKAY. And apparently this is a whole other scenario that doesn't automatically and with. Us being nauseous prisoners. No but it. It does appear like we go to like a prehistoric. There is a prehistoric bird or something man really grits in. This book is in reality for Awhile. And they got weird at the end we never. Did we ever jump into fire? We we did the practice jump and we found some fires okay. We encountered them separately. So there was smoke and we were jumpers. They're worse than there. Were smoke jumpers also. Okay like if you're talking about smoking it's not called smoke. Jumping skuld smokejumpers she met. We met many smokejumpers. So this is this beats out you are shark and ghost train in terms of US experiencing the title of the thing. Yes okay you were never shock. Let's see that's what I liked about. You are a monster is you. Turn into a monster on page two and then you have to deal with your life is a monster. I'd like to in that book. Monster meant a bunch of different things like everything from like horrible alien to like Alf. Basically you could be you could be a real classic monster or you can be like a goofy dude who was in abandoned eight cats. Yup what I do like our this book is. It's got like you're learning about a type of first responder. You're learning about land conservation. You know we'd not. We did not encounter any arsonists so I don't know of. I mean we don't know who started either of these fires. There might be something. That's another angle. We didn't get to experience of like there weren't really bad guys in this book. There have been bad guys in these books before. Yeah certainly I just. It's too bad that to play one of these all the way out we would probably need to record like four hours of. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah and that's all I'll say about. But the proportion of each book that we read May or may not make other entities feel things but if people out there have picked up this book there's more in there for them to find that's a lot of. There's a lot of meat in this one. That's service that we provide. Lots of good characters could care. And now you have voices two that you can't imagine when you encounter some of them just truly our goal so you'll never be able to read. Henry Burri yards voice without doing a weird. Just think tripping on a little bit if anyone knows how we should pronounce voice. Don't the name don't tell me I don't WanNa know how I say Henry Brew Yard is fine. Yeah that's just like we're not even we're not even tripping on anything like when you trip on the sidewalk just because you walked yup the Hon you got well I'm like I'm in the middle of his name and I think about him and I get distracted and add half A. You're sure but if you are a smoke jumper or no smoke. Jumper won't tell us about it right as an email to overdo pod dot hit us up online at facebook dot com into Iraq com slash overdue pod.

"So you learn you learn from the first trip that I will will folded this done. Yeah we had. We learned a bike. The pride and end the financial cost was part of it. Too Right Nam. And we're in the wood river there was no bailout option. Really like even had we turned we would have had to bail out. Yeah once we went through that scorch the bailout option taken as long as there was no good bail out option on on the wood river. That's why it's really not a good idea. Guk Yeah it was. Kinda it's really committed and that's what I learned you know subsequent to Some of these trips says it's not about you know fifty kilometers Bush. Blacking is not equivalent to fifty kilometers bushwack. Like there's some fifty kilometers. Bush whacking. It's easy you can do that in a day and sometimes it's literally will take you two weeks and you still can't do it so you gotta sometimes you can know enough to be dangerous right. And that's how I was at the at the beginning. I had nothing experienced that think I had enough experience but I was incorrect. So then between those two trips we did trip A first ascent of the upper monk men river in provincial park which is a Tumbler Ridge area. And that was a really cool trip where everything went. According to plan where we hiked in to monk Middle Lake and we went and climbed up Paxton peak which is You know again no formation. No trail that sort of thing. We ended up climbing this mountain. The fog which was unfortunate because we never did get to see what it looked like there. and there wasn't enough detail. Topo maps to like know which way to do it so we kept getting cliff doubts but there was a series. I think it was like twenty four marked waterfalls on our on our float out And it was just beautiful. Beautiful area actually went back the next year and ice climbed those waterfalls But it's Yeah it's it's SORTA thing that very few people get in there because it's A. It's a long multiday hike and the pack. Rafts made it much more easy when you go to the river. When there's no trail to hike through there would take forever but tariffs through there. It's actually a very pool drop in nature where there's Basically easy paddling and then waterfall easy. Paddling waterfall. Home news was that trump was about five or six. It really should take more like that part of what you know. We were young and energetic and we only had five days right. So we wouldn't do. You believe people would take five days just to hike into the lake but we hiked into the lake and then went up into the turns they call it up into the mountains climbed the mountain. You know come back and rafted out in that same amount of time which paragraphs helped because you can Do trips that are twice as long But ideally. It's way way more fun less punishing to take twice that long.

"Is Joe was okay so Roman. The best way to get into the story. I think is kind of like a mental exercise. Game I'm definitely all right so what I want you to do. Is Imagine that you are taking a straw through the British countryside because better wearing the British countryside. Actually No. It actually doesn't matter. That's kind of the point. It could be anywhere. On the island of Great Britain so let's ramble through the Lake district. I like a good fell I could ramble on a fell excellent choice. Excellent word use. It will be hedges around there. Definitely want to good hedge thrown some sheep. I'm there in my mind I'm rambling beautiful place and glad you're enjoying yourself. And but but here's the thing on this hypothetical ramble of yours. No matter where you chose to go so long as you are somewhere on the island of Great Britain after a while I can almost guarantee you you will come across an object. That looks like this here. Let me show you a photo. It's like an obelisk. It looks a little bit like fatter. Squatter Washington Monument without a pyramid on top. Which is like kind of tapered. Concrete Pillar I can't tell from the perspective of how tall it is though it's feet high. Okay Yeah so the mill the countryside. It's Berry Austere It looks like a ruin kind of has a little vibe of something that has been left behind. But it's cool looking talkative. Yeah Yeah I mean for me. It's almost like a grey concrete version of the monolith from two thousand one. It's just kind of there. And the thing is is that these pillars are actually all over the place. No matter where you are if you had a few miles in any direction you will keep stumbling upon these things and they all basically look like this. Yeah they're all identical exact same shape. Exact same measurements almost never varies. This one you're looking at is in Wales. Let me show you a few more. This is one. That's actually island called St Kilda. That's like in the outer. Hebrides like super remote. There's abandoned settlements there that's all there is is a military base out there. But still they have these pillars. There really are everywhere and like for example. Not just in these remote craggy places. This one's just in field in a farm field. Got One here. That's just like in a kind of suburban backyard. So what are they in Wyoming everywhere so the actual technical term for these things are triangulation stations? But in Britain everyone just calls them trick points or trig pillars and these pillars are the remnants of a centuries long effort to do something that we today take for granted which was to make a topographical survey of an entire country and so a topographical survey of the entire country. A kind of know what? But what do you mean right? Yeah yeah sure the surveys they have those things Topo maps and it's all taken care of the kind of broader contextual answers that at least in Europe as you get into the age of exploration and colonization ball so the age of Nation States was standing. Armies there is an increased need for really spatially accurate maps and this is because navigation military actions and this sort of thing like you need to be more precise than you did before. Is that the deal. Yeah exactly I mean if you're gonNA aiming artillery piece. You really need to know what you're going to hit what you're going to have the things like this right The first top graphically accurate survey maps were only a certain small areas like maybe a coastline town and it turned out that most of these maps weren't even like that accurate because anytime they tried to line them up side by side they were never in agreement like their longitudes latitudes whenever sync up and it was hard to say which map was right or whether perhaps even like all the maps were just filled with errors. There were no national maps. No National Grid Systems which is to say there's no set of fixed reference points for all lower order maps to us And this was really frustrating. Just like imagine for a moment not having a consistent map of the country where you lived. Every time you saw a big map classroom the coast would be all different in Florida. Look crazy every time and that sort of thing. They like everything would be different. Yeah there's no nobody really knew and I don't know about you but if that were ever taken away I would feel it's absence and so in Europe increasingly as you get into the eighteenth century especially there is a desire for precisely that a true God's eye view of the land that would feel like you're just kind of floating many miles above the earth and looking down at what he's actually and this was kind of a new idea to be really accurate in this way yeah began in Europe in the Middle Ages. You didn't need to know exactly how far away Bruges was. It was like three days right right and your field. It wasn't that it was two hundred fifty five yards longest turned fifty seven yards long. It just ended were the cops of trees was still we subway maps today right which is something that helps you in practice. But now we're getting into this era where there is a kind of practical need but also you have this enlightenment idea that there is some kind of fixed objective reality out there that we have been denied access to up until now and we need to find out everything we can about it and mastered somehow as part of our grand enlightenment project and the seventeen hundreds you begin see more and more countries started to national surveys and make first spatially accurate national maps who who kind of official coordinates keep all the other maps in agreement and so by fits and starts in the eighties and then officially in seventeen ninety one. Britain is finally like we should also probably know where everything is And they said you know we wanNA national map to. Let's do it okay. So honey go about making a national map. Where do you even start right when you don't know where anything is and you're not sure about anything's location? Or the distance between things. What's your first reference point like? Do you decide where like new zoo and the answer is tricked pillars? And this is what they did. They built to triangulation stations about twelve miles apart. Kind of were Heathrow. Airport is now and then they used just so they got the measurement. Exactly right the used a series of glass tube like I think each glass tube was like twelve feet long and they just kept placing them end on end over the course of like many many months until they finally could add them all up and say okay. This is the distance between these two first triangulation station. So okay those two translation were within sight of the Greenwich Observatory and the Greenwich Observatory. They were pretty sure they knew. Where the Greenwich Observatory was because it had all these telescopes with which to make measurements and so like the Greenwich Observatories launching latitude with the longitude. Latitude they were like the most confident and Bruin. All we need to do now is measure the angle between these two stations and the Greenwich Observatory. And now we have the location and distance between all three of these objects and once they had that then they were off to the races. Because now you don't need to physically measure lay out like you know rulers or glass rods or anything anymore. All you need to do is place. A new triangulation third triangulation station within sight of the first to measure the angles again. And then you can do all the math from the angles and we'll get to know the exact location of the third triangulation station and then you can put forth a little further away against long as it's within sight of to get a four station fifth right and then you just daisy chain. You're way across the entire landmass. Well and in this case you mean Great Britain. And that's why those trig points are everywhere for the entire island of Great Britain yes with triangulation stations. At every point the primary triangulation was finally completed in eighteen fifty three so it took sixty two years and in fact like in nineteen thirty five. They did a retrial relation. On and this time it was much faster it only took thirty years and so all the pillars dotted throughout the countryside. I HAVE TO FESS UP. Actually from the retrial. The second from nineteen thirty five. Yeah and the reason they installed these new ones like the original ones. Were just kinda like holes in the ground and there's actually hilarious descriptions of where you could find them because they'd be like oh ask the farm of lives at the end of the lane and he'll tell you you know what I mean. Those are the official descriptions of where the trig points were and they're like this isn't good enough we need to make better points more trick points And the reason they are all the exact same shape is because they are literally mounts for the survey equipment. Oh okay that makes sense so in the end for the full survey how many trig points to they have to build They built about Sixty five hundred and today there are still about sixty two hundred well. Yeah it's pretty good and believe it or not. There is one guy who has visited every single of course Eight happened bit by bit really so this guy. His name is Rob Woodall. He is fifty nine. He works for a watering waste. Authority in East Anglia and he honestly cannot tell you what compelled him to do this to toback success and trig pillar that yeah just graduate you get. Kinda sucked in. I mean Rob Lake's the outdoors and he likes a good challenge clearly but when I asked him if there was some kind of philosophical reward in it for him something to do with perhaps seen all of Britain he was like the discovery stuff. I didn't I'M NOT Kinda Guy. Ready. I'm not much poetry and my soul on the Frank Office. No poetry in Seoul for Guy. I think it's a for sure. Clearly if he did this he does really can't articulate it that sense that's that's what a remarkable human. I'm really like him. And in that sense he's not alone. He is part of a small but flourishing community of people called trick.

"Does will be damaged and there may be a slightly for a while but new spring grows will cover it and you know you think okay well you know wasn't the end of the world but my plants fine I found Caroline colleagues for you to the ground and come back from the roots that you can't really expect that you can't depend on and now you can you know it's amazing how tough succulent and plants in general or I mean when you think about these living we're responsible for they can not get up and move when conditions are threatening you know right they can turn up the thermostat you know all nearly all our you know literally rooted in spot this you know climactic problems and yet so we could but we can we can make it happen for them I think rather than a tender succulent you know uprooting itself and dashing underneath the eaves we because first falls from above and it settles on the plant so we can we can bring the even to the point that we can throw a blanket over them and here's what you need to do watch your weather forecast it's so easy to do now thanks to the internet and when you see a frost advisory you know that's the time to get out there before it came to her my gosh how many times have I been out my garden into Janice with a flashlight my husband my husband holding a flashlight I'm holding the sheet okay here's another tip closed in you never know when a wind agrees like us yeah yeah so I have would be closed in or rather typical when I used to attach the sheet in June the leaves of the agenda regarding like a garbage can you water or to the neighboring sure of your question and and sometimes you know if there's frost predicted for several nights in a row which tends to help and after a rain storm because you know the temperatures drop the skies are clear that scary you know that's that's perfect cross conditions this time of the year through maybe of February no we're not we're recycling without someone you can no you can't no Sunday morning yeah Michael are you know in the higher elevations your farther north sometimes you just want to leave them all and in this if you use a chorus non woven fabric let me try to class or a floating row cover and the children in the home improvement store also online you can go to the tools page of my website click through to buy it even though you do you can leave it on because of that brief sun sunlight world there's enough some like that will get through to help the plants photosynthesize to stay warm at all raise the temperature by several precious degrees and **** moisture you know like transformations moisture will on you know come in and out of that frost cloth you know the one single last year dog it was very disturbing we've had conditions here that I've never seen before maybe this is more prevalent where you are in the street night we had a frost advisory which means my definition here in southern California that the sky is crystal clear and not in the winter road the the you know molecules together to raise the temperature a little bit so it's absolutely clear and that same night we have crossed and rain yeah so in the morning what I see okay all right yeah on my first covers what's wrong with them I took photos of it and posted it on Instagram because it was like nothing I'd ever seen it and you know that's the ticket with social media if your people okay tension to close things nobody's ever seen before and showing frost cover wish I the topic succulent was pretty dramatic yeah so does that help designs and your question that does give me all sorts of good stuff the girl you know I I toured the you know the people who have modest kind of freezing things in the forecast you know I used usually uses cloud cover but that's no longer being produced there are other products that they can go to a nursery and find out about it but the row cover is really a very excellent protection for all sorts of good things in the garden and that these more plants they can't move into a warmer part of the two years you know you go to a convention in lead winner we have we have so many speculators Richards in California and the plants that can help out in the open you'll often see G. row cover you know willing to one side because they expose the plant during the day and then before the employees leave at the end of the day they just throw the row cover over them in case you trust that night thank you from the usually December through I used to think that the last date for crossed with Valentine's day but you know we've have crossed in March so is there a lot you just have to want to be aware yeah yeah that's amazing thing what about mulching and things like that ever marching is you know it's such a benefit in so many ways I you know I cannot sing the praises of mulching mulching and none of it of course holds moisture in the soil it helps with erosion during rainstorms it cuts down on weed growth and it it does to some extent keep the soil insulated no it's not going to do much for the Xposed leaves that are you know a foot or two about about the soil on March isn't going to help much with that that's why you've got to have something I need it's it's amazing park how you can earn a tree limb yes fifteen feet above the plant and that is enough for us protection for that plan because there are frozen crystal offering the most your crystal ball downward and they're inhibited by doubt that little bit of protection and you can almost see where that protection what would you look like a dinner plate shop and you can look down and can see how a plant which may be protected by something quite higher now of the other thing of course mulch does is it helps to no rating it once and read it works is a great thing to be aware of in your garden you're probably like me you're like a mere cat when it comes to you know microclimates in your garden you know exactly what can handle a little bit more cold because he's getting home radiant heat from the wall that was worn to during the day that's right nearby that's right and yeah and and I don't I don't think of mulch has so much on a radiant heat producer but more when it helps to moderate food temperatures but walls are important exposure is important no you don't isn't it amazing at night a status with kindness how many people don't know the orientation of your home gardens where is North Korea you know I couldn't well I have stories about stories about that on a backpack or used to be just sometimes on a cloudy day and I didn't have my compass out north can get a little bit chancy as to where you are and I've been a short of it lost in you know on the top of the mountain sometime there's Norris yeah that has to be north but there's no sun orientation there's no way you can where north is why is that important when you are a year to look at a topo map well maybe the same thing happens in your garden if you don't know war nor is it you gotta do it daily we got to take a little break you first and then we go this is a commercial station and I'm sure you understand commercialism I love it anyway who would get really bald we're

"Kind of feel like in this age of google maps and satellites. It's it feels like there's just nothing new under the sun and everything that's going to be discovered has been discovered or there's still a lot of blank spots on the map out there yeah so there. Are you know oh and i think that that's that's again kind of getting back to like. What's it all about for me. That's really at the core of the show because i do think we live in a time to your point where people will are losing a little bit their sense of imagination about the world you know <hes> google maps is amazing. It's like everybody else. I use it a thousand thousand times a day but there's something i ride a motorcycle <hes> as well as owning a car and i don't have a mount on my motorcycle for my phone and so when i have to go somewhere on my bike i'm kinda back to the way it was just a few years ago before we fund it can be frustrating if you're late to go somewhere where this sense of exploration even just exploration of like you know what block you turn on and where you go well i also i worry that we're losing our sense of spatial awareness and our innate ability to find our way around the place. I mean we totally are we know that people are just clueless bumping into each other and we'll get a traffic right so so <hes> so so on expedition unknown you know look. I'm not changing the world but to the extent that i can. I love trying to show people that there is a ton of mystery left in the <hes> you know and any archaeologist will tell you we've just scratched the surface of what's out there the yes there are places in the world even where we don't have maps as you look at the deepest jungles of the amazon. You look at parts of peru. <hes> you know sections of central africa. There are areas where you look at the best maps that are available double. They're not that good the central peru if you look at the best government topo map of parts of peru. There's an area that it says insufficient data you think wait that's fifty one of peru but the nazca lines yeah exactly but but you know there are there are mysteries out there to be solved you good l. Mirador this this maya city in guatemala. It's it's an ancient city. That's the size of los angeles wow i mean. It's that big too and if you say to dr hanson. He's been there for thirty years with it with a trowel in his hand. You say how how much of this have you excavated two percent three percent and everywhere you look at l. Mirador you see these big hills and you say what's that because that's a pyramid. What's that that's a pyramid. They're just waiting under the ground you know and so there are generations and generations worth of work to be done out there to understand human history and <hes> and so i you know oh i i hate to start sounded like an old guy like kids today and this and that because i was a video game kid when i was a kid and i i loved screens and computers when when i was a kid but i do think we are kind of getting into dangerous territory about exploring he out in the world doing stuff you know and so so to the extent that i can help shine a light on other people that are doing this work. I mean i'm not the guy digging up mirador. I'm gonna go take you to drag you. You know right. I know you've worked with. What was it. <hes> sahi hawas two. Who's that guy is like the guy anytime. You're doing anything archaeological. He just pops ops up whether or not he's there he's like mr egypt and <hes> and he's a controversial guy to some people who who say is uh-huh too much media too much team but listen. This is a guy who like singlehandedly has done so much for tourism yeah and and this is the big question in is like this relationship between the really important careful academic work <hes> that is going on in terms of archaeology and the public and you have to have bridges in between those two things because what are you dig it up for if people can't consume it and digest it and understand it and be excited by it so long not that long ago that you had i wanted to say like certain really far far to the right segments of like the muslim brotherhood saying when he did tear down all these structures because is there haram there in the muslim religion and all this stuff to have someone that like that who is actually making these issues that's important. I think it is important and so and so really you know for me so much of it is about the journey. It's about the exposure. I can't do the maya hi <hes> world justice and forty three minutes. You know so you know it's like you get people interested. That's the book afterwards. I hope yeah dig deeper yeah definitely definitely when you go to find mayan treasurer captain kidd's treasure you know the other day. I watched one where i didn't even know this story but some kind of colt brother twelve yeah in canada and he buried all these gold coins in jars. Do you have any kind of a deal with discovery. If you find something like what's what's your what's what they're cut. Whenever we do a show. That's like non archaeological where it's just like treasure hunters. <hes> there are a different breed. You know when you when you go out with the metal detector is is you know they usually bring it up. They're always like what's going to happen. If we find this jar aucoin like pirates they want to divide up the spoils before they even get to it really they bring that up with you. Yeah what's going to happen yeah. I always assume if i if i'm out on one of those like pirate treasure shows and find anything i'm gonna feel the cold crack doc of iraq in the back of my head yeah right. No i mean look for the archaeological stuff. It's it's obviously pretty much everywhere we go. We have zero stake in in anything. Oh come you know that they're not gonna let me get out alive with the with the checkpoint idol from the from the temple it's it's not gonna be mine to keep and i noticed that you also do a lot of caves on this show and i'm not talking about like big. Carlsbad caverns alike very narrow narrow case where you can't move your arms and stuff. You'll get claustrophobic in that kind of situation. You know i have this weird like i think i guess what i'm saying is. I'm stupid but i in the moment. It all seems like a good idea. I get this weird like adrenaline boy scout. This'll be fun thing and then when i watch it later i'm like yeah. No why would you go in there. Yeah it all sounds good when you're at the mouth of the cave but the forget the caves usually narrow yeah. I mean you do a lot of dumb things in the name of excitement excitement. If i'm if i'm into something and there's there's you know the something in the back of that cave. I'm usually in there. Do you have a phobia snakes spiders. I hate scorpions. Scorpions study specific. I do run into a lot of those more than snakes and all the other things yeah yeah. I don't know about more than snakes but yeah we run into. I hate them. I think they're i think they're from a design perspective. They're just horrible like picture like like like it's gross spiky thing with these weird horrible picture clause a tale that swings over its head yeah to sting and weapon systems. They're like it's a monster. If you blew that thing up and made it like four four times as big. Nobody would leave the house. Okay fair enough yeah. They're horrible yeah and and you've also had one say the same camera operator for what probably ten years ears now evan evan stone stone he always he always makes me say evan stone because there is a male porn star stone. It's so whole life it's haunted him so he's always says evan evan stone. He's gotta get the middle initial in there or the google searches get real ugly real quick. Is he pretty much game for anything yeah. Evan is if anybody who might be stupider than me. It's evan evan now. He's he's the best evan is. There's that old. There's that <hes> famous ginger rogers quote right that she did everything fred astaire did but backwards and in heels. It's what i'm saying is. He wears high heels. No he eats like if i'm hanging off a cliff just someone else's hanging off that cliff holding a camera <hes> so the the show can only happen if you've got people that can really get out there and and <hes> and capture what's what's happening and so these guys are out in insane heat insane cold slain cameras and mics and equipment menton drones and yeah. It's a lot of work bed. He's been harder talents with a camera in hand a totally these guys are gonna thirty forty pounds shoulder some time and <hes> in the middle of the jungle one one hundred ten degrees so they're the real rock stars of the show evans evans like this stalwart companion who's been with me for like a decade. He's just amazing and i think that this might have been destination in truth but there was one episode in a haunted forest and i want to say romania where men poor evan just got the scare of his life. Can you explain elaine what happened there. I can't explain it. I can tell you what happened. I can't explain it though we did a story back on destination truth in this haunted purportedly haunted forest in romania vehicle the holy about you forest and look. I'm a like i've gone to lots of reportedly haunted places and and i've never seen like you know. The specter of death hooded figure guy with the safe. You know so i'm i'm definitely on the skeptical legal side of things when it when it comes to that after all these years but there are places even if you're a skeptic. There are places that you walk into. They feel weird. We've all felt that there are places that just have some weird bad juju and i don't know what it is. If it's a psychological thing you know but this forest and romania is weird it then feel good. It's not a nice place to hang out and we were in this forest and this is creepy. Clearing in the middle of the forest where people have seen things and <hes> evan was sitting in this clearing and we weren't right around and we were at this kind of base camp area we used to operate out of and suddenly he got like flung. I mean there's footage of it. He got flung off of his feet by something wow and there was nothing around though and we ran over to him and i've known evan a long time and eh by the way is a skeptic evans not guy. He's not a paranormal dude. Who's just not his thing. He was ashen. He was like emotional. He was terrified so one of those nights where i still replay it in my mind and go what happened there yeah. I don't know that is crazy. Sometimes the world is mysterious now. Have there ever been places that you wanted to go but because of political instability or whatever you just couldn't make it happen yeah you know there's a there's always a list of like all the stories that we wanna do and some of them have been on there a longtime backing. We were making destination truth. I always wanted to do because we would do these paranormal. We'll show you always wanted to do like saddam's haunted palaces and and it was like during the war either like no you're not going to iraq. We're not sending it or so the substance some of them are are things like that and then some of them are just places that are really hard to get to <hes>. We did one this year. That's going to be airing this season which is which is up on our <hes> aboard for a really long time. Which is this thing called the diaw pass. Do you know about the story. Is that the one in russia yeah. It's the weird story where like the guys died they. They were found naked or something like this is the scariest you know expedition gone wrong story and it's one of the big mysteries of twentieth century kore- exploration stories and and we've wanted to do a piece on it for forever but it is in a really remote place yeah this year we we tackled. It's going to be a big two part special coming up. This is the beer in siberia so basically sixty years ago this year nineteen fifty-nine a group of nine hikers in siberia nine young russian and hikers these were like university students they formed a sporting club and as part of their kind of to get a merit badge kind of thing they had to go. Do this kind of hiking cross country country skiing expedition into the ural mountains and these are people that live in siberia. They're really capable..

"The where he would have got none. There's a vigil be no way to search the rest of the park. Oh, yeah. I mean, and and based on the dollar amount spent it seems like they probably were pretty thorough pretty thorough. Big you spend an eighth of the entire budget for search and rescue on one guy like they they had some they had some an power out there and they had machine power. I would go out on a limb and say not only did he hike out of the search area for the operate the rescue mission, but he must have gone off trail back country somewhere because it's been what fourteen years now since he went missing. Yeah. No one's found a body your bones or anything. Yeah. I don't think it helps that that's a really low traffic area too. Yeah. So. So he should do that loop. When we go there, we could get some tourist spots and do that Luke 'cause it looks like it's a pretty neat. Why does it looks? It looks really cool. And it's funny saying that because we're looking at a top of graphical map. Like, we're not looking at pictures. We're looking at Topo map and just kinda referencing our experience of when you have ups and downs and that much water like, it's probably lush. Yeah. It's probably like mountainous lush, but it's not like can't breathe mountainous over ten eleven thousand feet, so it's a really beautiful area. Yeah. Now, do you have any theories yourself? Hey, covered kind of. Well, I like the one I show reasons like you try and think like the bombshell. And for me, it was like, oh, what if it was on purpose? But then there's too much planning involved. If you're going to do that Weibring backpack. I haven't itinerary why permit a lot of times those people that go out in the woods to commit suicide, the leave some type note in their backpack. Yeah. It's rarely just like you always hear like you. The people are shocked that happen. Yeah. It's like the people who actually do it. Don't talk about it. And I feel like there is like a pattern still people who still do it. Yeah. They days beforehand start like here. I owned this. Operti? I wanna give it to you. Because I love you or family members. I don't think he can rule suicide out. I think with the credible lack of information on this guy. Anything's by. Thank you can't rule. Anything out? I'm definitely going to try and get the case file from the national. This one would be I'd say of all the episodes this to be the best update just get detail on because. I'm just thinking of so much that it could be. Yeah. And one more piece of small information. I'm like, I feel I could at least we knew about his personal life. May we could rule some stuff out if we knew about his personal life? If we knew if we had some I witness reports, maybe before he got into the parks. We absolutely knew us it had Checchi. I mean, we know he was in that area because his backpack was found at till till mountain. Yeah. And that's the only thing that we can think of cause to say he deviated from the plan to to me. Okay. But that of all the things they said, they weren't even sure the guy who made the statement with his brother, but they seem very confident he deviated from his plan that had to have been where they found the backpack and was then there's somebody that talked to them they didn't name, and they found credible enough to to guarantee that oh, this guy said it, and here's why would believe him. I think exposure injury in this case is probably a very likely scenario. Specially if you didn't have first aid kit. Or anything sounds like he I mean to me personally if gone, many, hiking trips. It sounds like he was just completely unprepared to be out there for multiple days. I always carry a first aid kit radio. Sometimes when in my rule is again, like you said, everyone says experience experience is that just because people know he hikes a lot because I don't wear shorts when I hike ever. Yeah. It's not because I don't think they're good. I have the breakway one's four exposure purposes for safety purposes, like pants or the way to go even in desert. Yeah. Like, you think about need to say cool. Yeah. If you're to'rest, but if you're hiking and you're trying to preserve water. You don't want you via new you wanna stay cool moisture wyking will help. So anyone that goes in like seems like he probably got out of a dead revival concert. And then went for a hike the way his description was he's dressed like torn off shoulder torn bandana shorts. Probably had socks with sandals. Gonna go hike in the mountains now. Yeah. Maybe he hiked a lot. But was stubborn. Maybe that was what it is stubborn arrogant. Maybe I don't wanna speak ill of the currently missing. No. But see there's I've met a lot of people out there that people you have their trail name and they've obviously hike lot. They're not dress appropriate. And it's more like, oh, we're tough. Yeah. We hike so much. We don't need that. Honestly, if anyone listening knows this family or maybe family members, eventually listen to this. We would love to talk to you. And even interview we would love to do an update show on this. Because there's a lot of interesting interest in this missing persons case, if you just Google is name, everyone is interesting about the same thing. Yeah. There's no data. There's no info there's no date any and we would love to get information from the family or potentially anyone that worked on the search and rescue operation. It's almost half a million dollar searching for this guy. No reports. I would like to come back and revisit once we have more information. Because like you said it's riphil in puzzle with, you know, missing pieces here, I would say to

"The agents? But we we've got a lot of a similar similar content in your new book. And my new book are a lot about cold about what does to people. How does the spirit what it does to the soul? What it does to the psyche? And. You know, in my case also trying to fight a battle in this kind of cold. What did to these men the men who fought this battle call themselves? The chosen few the Chosin reservoir the chosen few and they are spread out all over the country. I interviewed them all over the place. It was really the great joy of doing. This book was getting to know the veterans. Most of them have moved. I've noticed the places like Florida and southern California, Arizona. Because eighty five percent of them suffered from frostbite. They lost fingers and toes and sometimes parts of their face. Some of them, of course, in the battle some of these men froze to death or came very close to it. The weapons wouldn't fire the vehicle shut down the the Corman the medics couldn't they've actually put the cigarettes of of of morphine in their mouths to keep them from freezing. So they can inject them into the the man. And so the coal becomes a character. And I was curious with your book. It's just how you dealt with the cold is almost all of using all pervading force. And and how how different men reckon with it. How they hell. They deal with it. Yeah. I mean Worsely was taught. In his training. He didn't he did three expeditions. It is first experts you need an attempt to he's forty seven years old. And he was taught from another polar explorer, get wet, and you die, and it's true one of his expeditions. He had a companion who went to get a drink of water because they hunt for about fourteen fifteen hours a day through minus seventy degrees Fahrenheit through wins. The blow at one hundred miles per hour and one misstep and you plunge into a crevasse. So he went to get a drink. And he was was his first expedition whereas his companion, and he started to pour the water and the Gus blew it. And he made a mistake and in an instant his hands throws he had a glove on. But that's how it is his hands froze. And whereas they had to get the tent they had to cook up the cooker and warm his hand, and he's instructed his companion again, he said, get wet and you die. But for me, I think one of the. The overlapping things. Get John in this is well, but for me an article is a place. It's a it's a it's an environment. But what interested me about it is that that environment is the perfect laboratory for human dynamics because of the duress because of the claustrophobia because of the freezing. History is studied with accounts of expeditions in which members turn on each other backstabbed to send in the Lord of the flies. There are cases of mutiny. There are cases of murder, and so one of the things that Worsely always wanted to do was the test is on character and test is leadership ability. But I think that laboratory which also plies you even if it is in Antarctica of sending people in environments where you are peeling back to their elemental just call courtrooms. Much hotter. Studying how people can turn on each other in courtrooms? You see? You love courtrooms because you people talk about things in open court that they would never discuss privately because they have to they're under oath. They have to give details that they don't wanna give because they called as witnesses often against their will. But they are supposed to tell the truth. And so you see all sorts of incredible dramas played out in courtrooms. Daily. I mean, that's that's still watch trials and and had not been in a courtroom. Thirty five years ago watching a trial. Not as a lawyer just as a spectator would not have had the inspiration to write my first book. But there's something about the story that I thought was compelling, and I love the setting the small town in Mississippi character of the young lawyer. Listen to myself. And I said, I think this could be a very compelling courtroom drama. For somebody to write. Was going to be me. It took three years to kill. So you didn't go to Antarctica. I did not go to North Korea. I did not go to North Korea. I gotta go. Gone, but it probably wouldn't have gone back hard labor. Smashing rocks into smaller. Rocks into gravel somebody's gotta do it. But I'd rather not do it. So I went to South Korea. What's left of the the battlefield now reservoir? Can you tell you? Google earth. And unfortunately, this area is not too far from places where some of the nuclear testing has been done. It's sensitive is just not a place where I could have gone, but Topo maps, and you know. A lot of photographs in certain films, and you piece it together best you can. But yeah, it seems like I because my last book was setting the Arctic, and it seems like this one thirty five below zero in my cold phase right now. What was the last? But it was it was called in the kingdom of ice.
