"Back showing from my little so sure which term stream and then moved to a linear subject breaking of conservation fund and I say great conservation funding because I'm out in recent weeks indicate that for those of us who love the outdoors and love constipation we are going the caught my attention good night conservation one was four percent of the federal budget in nineteen eighty two today is less than one percent of the federal budget thank you Jay the federal budget's gone honest with us wow you with money was also Russian thirty five billion dollars is the number this time out I don't actually think that's right there are studies that we are not seeing that will dictate the actual funding for conservation is more in the early twenty two to twenty four billion with the federal government providing the overwhelming majority of this was staged providing about two three billion on the private sector providing about a billion concert so this is not right usually less than one percent of today's federal budget which is four percent so listen let to frankly a significant change in the way we are able to maintain manage choir and work with the private sector on on conservation interests and while quite simply no other reason all we know we've got a multi billion dollar maintenance backlogs in a national park hello if you've been to our national parks recently Yellowstone Yosemite they're gorgeous the Saudis are not not equal majesty of the place they are there to protect when we created the Yellowstone lodging well somebody he Catherine likable spokeswoman we did sell with like towards providing the American public not only with an incredible experience international parks but also with the experience hospitality and where you could enjoy staying in our national parks the infrastructure from roads facilities lodges offenses everything is in is in decline is because we do not have the money to maintain it through government today work at the same percentage of the federal budget four percent for conservation we were by the numbers that I trust in the scene we would be somewhere in the neighborhood of eighty billion dollars a year as opposed to two to twenty four billion a year at sixty billion dollars a year is is real money and I happen to believe that the best money some of the best money spent on the federal budget is spent on conservation and I'm sure many that doesn't mean it's perfect it doesn't mean this waste there's always ways from come to our state or federal government is just part of the animal and that's not picking on them that's just it's just the way it is there is once what the billion dollars would annualized basis think what that would have met in with me for national force our national parks or beaches all about the recreation we don't have it instead we're going the other way so what is happening is a summation leaders I don't consider myself a conservation leader but a group individuals have been getting together to try to address what are we gonna do about this and they have come up with if you considered on a scale of what I'm talking about eight please sit in a room but it's meaningful they've come up with the notion that we need to have about one point three billion dollars more annually of funding for conservation to begin to address the backlog of maintenance but more than maintenance there's a huge element of management our national parks and national force our BLM lands are all woefully under managed not only over used their underpants so this consortium of transportation industry interests and now legislators looking at how could we possibly get one point three billion dollars a year more conservation than we have now and that would be about a five percent increase over what we're receiving now so it is on me if you will it's on people's minds that we have a we have a serious problem and for those of you who use our state parks our national parks national force you your your keenly aware that things are not being managed to their maximum ability nor are they being maintained another component of this of course is that most of lands in America are privately owned and a lot of land owners want to do good things for wildlife they don't have the expertise years ago the Illinois department of conservation as it was known that have super private lands individuals who would come to your property talk to you about what you could do and I remember my case seeing a letter from the department of conservation is written my father back in the nineteen fifties on our farm in northern Illinois which small farm which was a good description of how you could manage forty acres just forty acres professionals and it was a detailed long letter and referred to all kinds of journals and nineteen fifties in individual came and spent the equivalent of several days with my father designing a plan for presence on forty acres think about that today would never happen you could have four thousand acres and good luck there couple people in the state of Illinois and Jerry Musser is at the very top of this has been that that the department now natural resources a long time coming through that with you this used to be common place used to be able to call the partner natural resources and say I need some help management private lands and you have a private lands man to that's not gonna happen again we don't have the money in the federal level we did we did a great deal more of that than we than we do now to the park to natural resources conservation service is still there but it's a shell of what it wants so private land owners who want to manage wildlife after now employ private companies nothing wrong with that private companies to come and tell them how to manage wildlife into the management for the there's absolutely nothing wrong with that what it shows is that our tax dollars which only increased are not providing the services for conservation that they once did the state almost all of them back on their ability to work with private landowners and and and the manager land so the alternative is you hire private company that's great except now you're paying twice you pay your taxes to the parkland natural resources in the state of Illinois in Houston lance manager now you pay your taxes the state only okay services that you have to go out and hire a company to do the work that you already paid for for your taxes so I think what we're facing a dilemma on and we're facing really across the country is a change and that's saying it's bad I'm just saying that wildlife management is headed in the direction of being privatized which is an absolute answer to the people at state from the federal government but it's currying because they no longer are doing the job that they once did so if you think about that number I mentioned a few minutes four percent of the federal budget in nineteen eighty one to conservation and Chris less than one percent of today on equal basis today we're getting about twenty two to twenty four million billion dollars conservation spending much of that to the department of agriculture in nineteen eighty two had we had the same numbers that would be in today we still have four percent of the federal budget that number would be over eighty billion dollars we are getting shortchanged folks the need to pay all kinds of social costs and and legacy costs have eaten in by seventy five percent of the funding it once went to conservation to protect our natural resources it's a bad situation it's going to get worse and what's going to be the result is the increase decrease privatization of management an increase in the crease in ability to properly manage our state and federal lands and in Illinois if you're heading out to all the claims this fall behind you're gonna notice if you've been going for many years I have they just despite the best efforts of the people who are actually on that land doing the best job they care they don't have the resources we don't have the equipment that they once did our public lands in Illinois are are poorly maintained at best so it's not a commentary on only it's happening across the country even becoming states out west they are also finding that their revenues are being compromised because of funds being siphoned off for her legacy costs Wesley on that subject watch the decline of Goodman Robertson sales revenues from the sale of firearms it continues to go on note the Obama administration is not a political statement but now that the Obama administration is now three years the gun sales in America have declined dramatically and the result is less revenue for crystallography so that's about it on the great outdoor show this morning I hope you enjoy it in the last thirty seconds you shall be glad you were not in rock Laker Bismarck North Dakota Winnipeg anywhere along the northern line this.

"That is what Mike Mayer did an epic three year journey to not just every national park, but all four hundred and nineteen sites. Run by the National Park Service at the individual Micheals trip came to an end on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, surrounded by friends and family and fans who followed his journey on Instagram and Facebook mica joins us on the line from where are you now have been the appaluse AM? That's correct. I are you adjusting to, to life back in the real world? It is so much harder than I thought I, I realized it took me about two weeks to verbalize sort of feeling I was having. But I realized that for three years, I woke up every day and I knew what my short term goal was that day. What a needed to accomplish in how fit into three. Three year goal and my entire life. And now I wake up not in a parking lot not innovation in with sort of this less clear sense of urgency everyday, and my brain doesn't know how to handle it. So take us back three years. This started out as a tribute to your late father, but it turned into a whole lot more than that. Yeah. You know, my dad loves road trips in that was one of the ways that we bonded before he passed. And when I was nineteen he died from his office cancer. So I never got to take the road trips with him during college and beyond that I expected I would have done one road trip every year since he passed his way to keep that connection alive along the way realized that most of my peers seem to think they were guaranteed to make eighty since my dad passed away, fifty eight I had learned that, that's not the case hardway and wanted to do something crazy, when I turned thirty that would hopefully grab their attention, share this message and I figured what more relatable way to reach the entire world than our National Park Service. So walk us through the logistics you come up with this crazy idea. But how do you actually turn that into a game plan for a seventy five? Thousand mile road dream over however many years. Yes, so I spent I spent my twenty saving up money to, to launch this project ended age twenty eight realized it was time to start planning earnest. So really spent a solid two years, doing everything from research on whether patterns who best routes to most efficient ways to reach these sites to win. Each park was opened in summer, only open seasonally, who potential sponsors. I could reach out to who the most practical way to live on the road axes sites talking to experts getting help rafting schedule sort of doing everything. I could head of time who be best prepared for launch day when that came on April twenty ninth two thousand sixteen. And then, of course, on top of all those miles, you can't drive to Hawaii, or American Samoa or Guam, or Puerto Rico, or the Virgin Islands. You've got some some planes and boats to try and both factor in and fund as part of this. I couldn't have been a cheap endeavor. Right. And that was the scariest thing was I began this journey with what park experts told me was only a fish of the amount of money of what it would take to do this in. So I sort of got in that driver seat. And drove away on, on a big leap of faith that somehow in the following three years, I could figure out a way to make this sustainable incomplete. It. So you had funding and then part of this, you were you were preaching in passing the hat along the way. What point did you realize that was going to be part of, of this trip for you? Yeah, but when I planned it, I sort of pollyannaish looked around at the world of social media in saw millennials funding. Epic travels by getting sponsors. And I thought well just do that. And learn really quickly, that if you don't have over one hundred thousand followers, nobody really cares. And particularly in the outdoors industry, there were no openly t people that had any sponsorships the recreation industry had never had a pride month add, so I sort of knew going in that I would have to fight this uphill battle of not fitting that outdoorsy image and also not having huge social following that companies would require until I figured I would crowd fund this journey, and there was a total failure at first, I would do. Media sharing this journey. And I just got nasty emails from people who called me trust fund kid, which obviously didn't read the article 'cause they would know that passers don't have trust funds. But everyone was just really negative. And I found that unless unless I had the chance to talk to people on explain the real reason why was doing this trip. It wasn't just a vacation as they assumed but the meanings behind it, once they knew that they were really excited to help. And so it took me about nine months to figure out how to do that. But I began using my backgrounds of professional singer at spent over a decade, senior professionally, including our National Cathedral, and started out, just singing for my supper and would pass out the hat, and then churches started asking me to preach, the sermon and figure out a way to, to tie the story of this journey into a message that, that spoke to the people there and hear him three years later. So on top of all that you're obviously than visit. The parks themselves how much time you able to spend in each Parker. Or did you feel like you had to, you know show up get the visitor center, take a selfie and hit the road again? Yeah. That's another thing is a lot of people assume that I was sort of Chevy, chasing my way in touching the parks, leaving that they thought I was just doing it to set a record which records were happy coincidence, that happened from its initial goal. So I was really fortunate in that when I was planning this journey just by pure coincidence, about five miles east of me lived one of the three or so dozen people who at that point had visited all the parts and so one night, he came over for dinner, and I got out my spreadsheet, I went through every single site and said, if you go back here, what would be the ideal amount of time, you would spend and those days in the data that I used to come up with this three route. So really the intention in the actual experience was to spend the ideal amount of time. That each site suggests whether that's a historic site that you can do everything in a few hours or a place like the Grand Canyon, where you really wanna spend a week rafting down the middle. I made sure that that's what I did not goats. So this is left, you then with a very unique appreciation of the park service that, as you mentioned, only a few dozen people in the entire world might have. So I want to pick your brain here a little bit of a speed round asking you to pick a few of your favorites. But with kind of specific questions, what do you think is the most under appreciated national park? I would say, our national lake shores. There are three of them now that Indiana dunes became a capital in capital park. And I'm shocked by how many people don't know about them, despite their incredible beauty? Among the A-List, the ticket national parks, which one is absolutely every bit as good as advertised. Oh my gosh. I, I stood a glacier point, and watch sunset over half dome in Yosemite and was just blown away. And I know it's sort of the opposite of some of the things I said on this journey that I was trying to share about the park sites. You haven't heard of, but that's one that you have heard of that is very well visited that absolutely delivers what is the one park that everyone needs to see before they die. That's tough. I mean, what I learned about the park services that there are so many sites that can be special to people with specific interests of people who love certain president, or like Springfield armory, that, that chronicles our nation's history of, of guns and warfare. And if that's your interests, like you're gonna love that place where than anything else. So I would say whatever site specific -ly speaks to you, as far as your, your personal interests for myself. I was really enchanted in blown away in ways. I never expected by dinosaur national. Yes. I've heard that for many people who've been don't realize that, that's one that I've heard a lot of folks suggested that absolutely deserves national park status. The locals don't like me. I've got an Email saying, stop telling everyone about our secret. What was the biggest surprise of park that you maybe went in with low expectations and came out blown away? I really had a blast at the, the site in Guam the war in the Pacific, national historical park, and the accompanying affiliated site onsite pan, which is the American memorial park. Both of them are, are technically just small parcels of land. But then they have pieces of the history of America's involvement World War Two all around the islands. So really to fully experience these parks stories, you have to explore both the entire island of Guam, and the entire island of pan. And that was just such a an incredible experience that looking at the names, designations, this historical park and memorial, park, you'd probably think it'd be like a statue in a building, but getting to fully experiences place means taking on the entire island culture. And it was really incredible. You mentioned Refn and the Colorado what was the biggest thrill on your trip? So I my family grew up pretty poor and never got to, like, I mean, even we go to arcades and it was like too much to two quarters that stuff. So it was always like the cheapest way of traveling possible. Nothing extra. And so getting to do a hot air balloon ride in South Dakota was like something I never imagined or getting to take a helicopter tour over badlands, national park or Hawaii volcanoes like these are experiences that I always looked at, at other families and saw that they could do, but assumed I would never get to do my life. So because of this journey in sort of, I would trade trade, a coverage on my blog and social media for some of these two or opportunities. Getting to do those extra special views of the parks, just blew my mind. Were there any parks that you end up ended up, hitting either in the wrong season or mother nature just didn't cooperate near? You're like I would come back to you again. If given the chance and take a do over. Yeah. One of the things I pride myself on. Is that sort of a lot of the hiccups, that I think a lot of people expected, what happened on this trip did not happen because I spent two years planning. So I really did my research to make sure that, that I could it be places. When the weather was Satistics most likely to be good. However, California roomy off because devils, postpone, national monument can only be reached basically in the li- like middle, July, August and early September. And you're only a few hundred miles away from death valley, national park which do not wanna be at during that time of year. So I actually had to fly from Alaska down to Yosemite devils post. File just so I could reach devils postponed, national monument during that temperate, I am of year because the rest of California I did in the spring earlier that year. Yeah. It's a good, detour there. We hear a lot about overcrowding in some park, Zion Yellowstone Yosemite. Did you did you run into that? And do you think that is a genuine problem that, that some of our parks are facing right now? Yeah, I mean, sort of one of the, the side benefits of doing ally. Speaking churches was.

"According to national parks dot org. The website for the national park found. Dacian? There are currently sixty national parks. But even that number is misleading. The United States national park system encompasses a total of four hundred and eighteen different sites. That span across eighty four million acres, which is more land than than a lot of entire nations possess. The system includes parks and territories such as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands American Samoa Guam, just one of America's parks. Alaska's Rangel, Saint Elliot's national park and preserve encompasses thirteen point two million acres bigger than Yellowstone Yosemite and the entire country of Switzerland combined. The US national park system is is in total over ten million acres bigger than the entire nation of Italy within the number of four hundred eighteen sites. Only sixty actually include national park is part of their proper name like Acadia national park on Maine's Atlantic coast Everglades national park on the southern tip of Florida Grand Canyon National park in Arizona Yellowstone National. Oh park primarily located in north west Wyoming but bleed into parts of Montana, and I'd Aho in addition to these national parks there are eleven different national battlefields. Four national battlefield parks. Won national battlefield site, nine national, military parks. Fifty one national historic parks, seventy eight national historic sites. And then there are national memorials national monuments national reserves, preserves recreation areas fee, shores, lake shores and more. So how did all these parks get here? Well, some people don't think they are here. Some people think they're just lies pushed on us via the moon matrix manipulated reality being projected down onto earth facilitated by courts deposits and alien technology taking the positive reality programming coming from the sun's photons twisting them into negative reality. Projectors pushing us towards war and famine and discord whatever turmoil faves the nudity those damn ancient Babylonian brotherhood, reptilian motherfucker. Cres that have been slaved humanity from Linnea, but those people are considered by most academics. And scientists to be utter maniacs. So let's nor that perspective. We're gonna have some fun with wacky doodles who do believe in shit equally crazy to what I just said here and there throughout today suck. And if that gibberish did make a little bit of sense to you, thanks for paying attention to the David stuff. I've been talking about from time to time people who live in the real world where history has not been grossly rewritten where we're not be manipulated by aliens understand that the origin of our national parks can be traced back to eighteen seventy two on March. I eighteen seventy two then president Ulysses s grant signed the Yellowstone National Park Protection Act. The congress had just passed establishing Yellowstone National Park in the territories of Montana in Wyoming as a quote, public park or pleasure. Ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people and placed it under exclusive control of the secretary of the interior the founding of Yellowstone National Park introduced a whole new concept and not just the people United States. But to the world at large, and that's the concept of preserving land for future generations to enjoy ensuring that no one will build on it outside the.

"Roosevelt Amir's Yosemite visit has been called the most important camping trip in history. Afterward told friends I never before had so interesting hearty and Manley companion. I fairly fell in love with him. For Roosevelt part. It seems his time with Moore had surpassed his expectations, whatever downside express ahead of the trip in his letter to John Burroughs. He told reporters immediately afterward. It was bully. I had the time of my life Roosevelt later road of Muir. He was what few nature lovers are a man able to influence contemporary thought and action on the subjects to which he had devoted his life. He was a great factor in influencing the thought of California and the thought of the entire country. So as to secure the preservation of those great natural phenomenon, wonderful canyons, giant trees, slopes of flower spangled hillsides, which may California a veritable garden of the Lord returning from his trip. Roosevelt was recharged with the love for the outdoors, but he understood he still had work to do the time spent with Moore had helped the. I understand that Yosemite and the Mariposa grove could not be trusted in the hands of the states. Federal intervention was required to protect his natural wonders to keep his conservationist agenda on track. He would need to amplify it. In March nineteen. O five Roosevelt began his second term this time as the president, the country chose a little over a year later, he signed a pair of laws that would prove key to his environmental legacy. The oh seventy recession, Bill signed in June nineteen. Oh, six took the Yosemite valley grant and the Mariposa grove of giant sequoias out of the control of the state of California instead place them solely under the protection of the federal government as Yosemite, national park the same month Roosevelt signed the antibodies act allowing the president to create national monuments from federal lands. The goal was to establish legal protections for important, cultural and natural resources. And as soon as the law was official Roosevelt set to work before the year was out. He set aside four new sites, including devil's tower while homing El Moro New Mexico and Montezuma castle and the petrified forest in Arizona. Eventually, the law would be used to protect many other areas such as south Dakota's jewel cave, Utah. Ause natural bridges in Washington's Mount Olympus. Another of the sites was the Grand Canyon in January nineteen, o eight Roosevelt secured nearly eight hundred thousand acres of the Grand Canyon as a national monument paving the way for Woodrow Wilson to eventually designated a national park in nineteen nineteen Roosevelt would describe the Grand Canyon as the most beautiful scenery in the world. Roosevelt would leave behind a legacy of conservation in the course of his presidency. He established one hundred fifty, national forests, five national parks and eighteen national monuments. He protected approximately two hundred thirty million acres of public land. He saw in America's natural wonders, riches that surpass material wealth in his view. Conservation was intrinsically linked to the idea of manifest destiny the country. Now, stretched from coast to coast. He saw places like Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon as hard won trophies their splendor earned through successful American expansion. The country needed to protect these natural treasures for future generations and hold them up as evidence of American greatness. Roosevelt started progressive era of environmental reform. His impact on the conservation and creation of national parks and monuments would be felt for generations. What his record was not spotless. Just two months before Roosevelt signed the anti.
