And we got to celebrate off four seasons that's part of why we live where we did a year in the Carolinas as we did get to celebrate four seasons with candy. Pick exactly when they're gonna occur and it was severity they may occur or not and not severity but it. Anyway we have reached the spring.

But you're right we're out again and again and at a Rock Hill South Carolina becomes Amy festival has kicked dolphin. Of course here on the Carolina outdoors we'd like to talk about hiking biking in the nation and all that sort of thing but we also like there's an alignment and cool places whether it be in Charlotte around Charlotte urges someplace accessible. To our listeners and hold them to ourselves. Zero. Right in the comes Amy pastoral biggie just south of Charlotte and on to the Rock Hill South Carolina and you're got to get out of town sometime. Go down there and see what a beautiful city that is. And I think about the gentleman we had a account councilman men from. The eastern part of the state he visited all 41 state parks in the state of North Carolina. And he did that as kind of a challenge to get out of his comfort zone and in C. Parts of the state that otherwise he would not see in it reminded me we had edit clips back last year 27 Dana. In the and in early fall late summer time when that clips happen and so many people get pushed into. Some towns in South Carolina smaller towns that were in the belt line of the eclipse in Iraq kill I don't know if I'd necessarily call a small. Small town you know Richard. And a blow through it on 77 on the way to the Beecher were going and you don't really get downtown and get the chance to get the flavor of that now mind in this and in what at times that with with Charlotte as a metropolis in this area growing it is a great time to go celebrate. The identity of another. City that is a part of the Charlotte metro region. Rock Hill South Carolina and that's where the comes Amy started in 1962. And will learn from. From Nate Mallard about its growth in what it means now and 2018 and state week two weeks to get down there let along the festival lots of opportunities are got a great website it's got all the day's events and they even have a map but Apple Store bounces that you can't get away from that's right. Paid the other big festival is coming up in of course. That a little bit of similarity. In net from the there's a lot of different sports to do out at the US national Whitewater center and my words I would call this their spring kick golf now it's gonna take place April 19.

But also they have national vendors this is a little bit close to our heart dom because of course we hang our hats ever. It Jesse browns in the sharing corner shopping center of the upstairs outdoors store located on the second floor of Sharon corners shopping center there in the heart of the South Park shopping district but. At Jesse browns we kind of celebrate an outfit for the outdoor lifestyle. And that's what type best is at the US national Whitewater center. It's a celebration of the outdoor lifestyle that a bunch of vendors are going to be out there. On the showing their waiters talking about their stuff whether it be asking so where Bolick dire. Some of those types of sponsors will all be on hand and that says a word and about with all archive the stores well right that's right says. How many thousands of people are going to be it that fast listening to the Bane Albanians doing. Mountain bike riding do and wrath Dayne doing flat water standup paddling.

It's a great time ago fission worst in some actual patches on our mountains in the afternoons. Which means were able to fish them drive flies and that's a rare occurrence for us turn the Carolinas we tend. Really stay down and dirty and hammer home with them spent a man and afternoons we've seen some canisters coming off. Some little yellow salaries which are your little bright yellow stone flies and even. So my applies as well so a lot of activity out there especially in the afternoon just a great time to get out there are others. Thirty some delayed harvest streams that are catcher released until the first Saturday in June so that's a great opportunity but I have to tell you.

All Baird says Don Yeager every day or bill bar T year where the outdoor guys here on WB ET we're gonna take a quick break come back with more after these messages. Our bill RJ were back on Carolina outdoors and we've talked about it before that I am a firm believer that the Iditarod is the last great race in the world. You won't get any argument from me and it was playing that we've discovered over the years at the Iditarod takes an a lot of different events other than those hopes letting. Oh that's right and we've talked about line. This invitation. Only we talked about a bunch of things here on the Carolina outdoors over twenty years Don. We have covered a bunch of different things including. Sled dog and machine and how to say bush hurt in the north as they say marching through this. A I think we might say that meant in the south there's not smooching and that over and play it. Alicia come out liver my eyes but anyway if you welcome back everybody gone negative they are built partly here. But one of the prizes that we have gotten a talk about in one of the people that we've gotten to meet. Is a gentleman from North Carolina who took on the Iditarod. But not with sled dogs he did have a sled but he didn't have any dogs. And he was invited to invitational. Three years ago anyway and has learned along the way from. 2014. To 2015 to 2016. To 27 team we're gonna learn about 2018 from Peter ring master. Invitational. Iditarod invitational. Shall we say. Complete her. I would say reigning king personally he is king was in the team who's earning a map but before him but let's bring him on Peter rantmaster welcome to the Carolina outdoors. Thank you and so it could be back with these guys again why now tell us about the imitation. Yet that and he you know an invitational race that it's all the power we goat meat beat the dog. And we go on look like I do. Some people buy it satire bite and you people's ski and there's a record thirty mile race. A pretty fit in my outrage and that battle mile race. I'll I'll it is or has been my old app here. Finally laid to drag in the future. So this is happening in the medal winner in Alaska well relate no support. Absolutely. We're. We sent the bunch of food out there. Brain power so that we get in the we can pick the increase. Can't and so while in Neal and actors and and to should. Treat. Mostly just. It's it's very tough conditions the trend a lot of sleep deprivation. And it takes. Oh I have to get anywhere just so. Your partner of the time three miles from now. Three miles an hour days on am pulling a sled with your supplies. Yet there or imported by pop. I ended up averaging 38. Day for six and a half days. That that apparently that's what got me that no matter what it's well third 38 miles a day. 38 model days for six at bay and this was. This was not on paved roads by any means. That there was probably less on. The net. And that ball where opens grossly. Wrote lakes and rivers but now that all types whether. Tough things but he's got to get through but. I've gathered here. Just glad to be done with that this has been huge. Huge piece of my life for the last 56 years. I can't tell you how good he'll be back to Carolina and there. And now it whenever you lost thirty pounds and if people are just join in the Carolina out or whether they're waking up early on a Saturday morning or maybe they're joining us via. Podcast we gat. That Peter rip master on who just completed the invitational Iditarod invitational now. It Jesse browns we have upcoming may seventeenth. Storyteller knighted Jesse browns from six to 8 PM it's a Thursday night Peter rip master. Is one of the alarms of storyteller night and he told. The story as him getting in their running. He tells the story of him getting into the an Iditarod invitational it's an awesome story but let me give a little Bagram and we're gonna find out about 2018. In twenty or detained leader he took on the 350 mile Iditarod. Raising money for hope chest for women. And and that sort of thing you view. Pulled a nine he pounced led a came in last. Complaining that 350 Mallard. In 2015. Learning from your mistakes. You get to sled down in half 45. Pounds or so and placed third in the 350 mile in 2016. You took on the full 1000 miles. Four days into the race you fell into the freezing. That Tina river. Almost died. Got out but still completed. 500 browser so so with that that is your back held. Tell us about 28 teen in what happened differently in what was going on in your mind to help you not just completed. But when it. Well. All. Are all I put weight on top of a goal like deep down at full. I've known that I have what it takes to do so I have to say that that part of it. And I have a group of people that have believed to be two. I've always thought that I'd. I finished but they're here let it begin. That beat 2006. And 2000. You still yet. That the river is now 0500 miles per year last year dealt with minus sixty here right on the trail. And that lead the bodies beside typically pack eat if the so I think about it that's an iPad comeback as well. Not completely okay. Not completing. The news and Pamela let you realize you have. Almost the old year before you get back on the trail and yet others at work together. So. I you've got to. Appreciate that I would know what I might well at the baseball player. I was always really good with two strikes. And that kinda or know about this trip this year was that I had to strike if I I. Here at the time now. Big these are amply why. Forty days is there that quote on accidentally. Into. Constant. And so this year but then after having two years they. I was willing to deal with an easy out there trailed only that I had the person you're cheap go we are what they'll let anything stop. And so I had that brutality. And then has what it took him. I'd that was not my goal because there's no doubt in my name is Tim Hewitt. It took Hewitt and it took. Kind. Oh. Tim Hewitt is currently over there. He would injuries this year. And 500 mile race he's beside it stopped he'd drop out of race. Or Lou differently. Drop outrage whichever. All. They're the guys have always been and is not in any and our opens up an opportunity for B and in front of art who was quite. Close to be a whole time. Lieutenant Dan and all my competitive nature came out I had the everything is. To continue on for only six days but with a shot at its people. That would hurt it. Here too but there. And then I expressed interest about it have been behind so that took that approach this year. Now I'm not only that but the double sent to temptation in the form of a snowmobile or I understand. All it happens regularly has people compromise. You've been released yet there were outraged to think just little trek through the wilderness. And this bureaucratic. Law and I don't even like the work either I'd dealt with. Sideways. People it and be ready to be repeat anything you have been. It'll look like well thanks for health. It. I. It is it is like.
