Making outdoor magic occur. Now we cannot run from this if you're listening to us early on a Saturday morning you know one day before Father's Day. Now have you ever wondered how Father's Day began yes. It's one of those things that many times we would we'd maybe have. Retail cynicism yes there's ruin things like hallmark invented. Father's Day all of those sorts of things Mother's Day Valentine's today. Christmas. Yes a lot of things have given to gotten bit bad the retail cynicism bug. And that's coming from a guy who hangs his hat it Jesse Brown look I think it's an outdoor retail establishment right here in Charlotte, North Carolina. Were all. Or were all inviting you to come over they are players that visited him but anyway. How did it really began their patents with several different story lines but one of the most. One of the earliest that stands out the most is up lady named Sonora Smart Dodd and she was inspired. I. Church service a sermon at church service that sort of was wrapped around a Mother's Day story or Mother's Day sermon. And received. Her mother had passed away during the birth of one of her siblings. And she wanted to celebrate. Her father. And and part of that and about her holding her father in great esteem. She a purge the Spokane ministerial alliance and that is out there in Spokane Washington. And the alliance she requested it to be jeans fit which was her father's birthday. Her father had thought fought for the union in the first Arkansas light artillery during the civil war his name was William Jackson Smart. It is so. Should he was very important to his daughter so doctor Senora Smart Dodd. She requested that Gene Smith. Her father's birthday they alliance. Chose the third Sunday in Jamie's they had yet to beat him you need to use you Levan. And anyway dad is where. One of the first Father's Day celebrations. Occurred it was June 19 1910. In Spokane Washington which in nineteen can Spokane Washington. Was a long way away from the from the eastern seaboard it was a long way away from Arkansas. Where they had moved from. That is where they early Father's Day beginnings began 1916. That's six years after that Woodrow Wilson Center telegraphed this this to Spokane and praising. The Father's Day recognition. As well as William giants' Brian. William Jennings Bryant. It was another early admire in in 1966. President Lyndon B Johnson signed. A presidential proclamation declaring that third Sunday and did Jane. As Father's Day so it's a relatively. New holiday right yeah so to speak and in celebrating matte it with Jesse browns were inviting needs to share a picture. Or even a story. On our FaceBook page so you can get a Jesse Brown CLC. As the FaceBook page for Jessie Branson if you have an old photo of your dad and you on a fishing trip. Or maybe you have a recollection or a story that you you'd like to share Disco however to our FaceBook page Jesse browns. And share that will will to be glad to take any comments to achieve have on celebrating your dad. Grand dad uncle or anyone like that of importance that too cute on a fishing trip. And it reminds me of fishing that some with my dad some good stories in some of them. Not so good stories one of the good stories is my dad who is on the buy river which is a fantastic Trout stream. Not and it outside of Calgary. Alberta Canada. And my dad you know he's caught this fish and that fish but he's not Ollie and non upon. Phone Trout fishing. And catching any particular. Tom size fish or that sort of thing but he is about fishing he was yet he was just out they'd do and what the guy really told him in the day I've had a special spot so he was efficient with somebody. A professional government has not from Canada. But he had some idea we were there for radios. And at the Calgary stampede but anyway the gad took my dad to a special spot. And he said mr. RT if you cast your ride ever buy that Iraq in just let it drift through. There's a fish in the air that I've been trying to catch for a while maybe woke catching so my dad did just what the dad toting. And that's why drifted right bat that rock just like it was supposed to. My dad may say it was skill some may say it was a lot but he did exactly what the guys said. And this great big 25 inch who. Cut bad move. Took it. And it was all. In my bad spot and on this far odd series official with the fire rod he spotted and bought it and thought it. And landed it. And they thought well that was really cool. Meanwhile the guide he'd been after that finished. All summer long is mad was upside down he was celebrating he thought the pettis who wonderful. And my dad was kind of ho hum about it in fact he figured to gag was that excited about it maybe he better get excited about it. So. He celebrated. And that was a good thing which better as a celebration story a wonderful story. But they're also the other stories as well. And one of which come hours with my dad and we were on and the flaming gorge of Utah along the Green River. And we were fishing from about it there's a raft going down these beautiful. Red river canyons. Brock Sony side just beautiful saying. And we were flowing through there in high. Caught a fish. I tested it out in this. In this long drift and let them learn to fly athletic appropriately wrecked and this finished took it. And I thought that finished it was on a firearm to ask you about it and thought it. And as it got. A little bit closer to the Barrett in ruler of the rafter who's getting a little bit tired we again had a dad who was between has given us instructions as we floated down this river. And of course which are holding in your hand is the butt of the rides right so the gadgets it's to Cuba but it dead fish. Where else. I got to have such a turnaround. Instead how about. At the fish. And the guy hasn't had now was Travis David up he very intently was watching no water in the fish. And it that this wasn't getting any closer so he sits that sits secure but. It's a fix and I was at my I've it's a fix but I. This is a true story. Finally Baghdad looks up because he wonders whether fish isn't getting any closer hit missed and he said none of them. The blood of your rod. Stick it at that fish which I then did so in the fish whip right into the net. And come there I tell you deprived of my father she's ahead in the oldest son that day I'm sure she. I think it was nonexistent. A experience. I need to get some in my face and stories posted could just like that on the Jesse browns FaceBook page. We invite you to do the same just had ever to Facebook. I mean if you're under forty governing mr. Graham will take a picture and view in your dad on a fishing trip or story. Either way. We're glad you're listening to the Carolina outdoors with the outdoor gas from Jesse browns available work podcaster hurt. And via the airwaves at WDT. On an early Saturday morning. Suits. Imagine you're climbing up a rock face. Success. Wallis you have known before you know we told you for your hands together in your face to go as well. So you're using minimal at Christmas. A little bit hardware costs are lighter weight rope in if a mistake happens you hope that equipment will catch you. It's something that's going mainstream in the 20/20 Olympic Games are being held in Tokyo. Speed climbing is making its debut but state climbing is also making news out in California right now with records being broken. And crashes occurring. All over the place and who we're gonna bring along curt Smith do groping like. Tahoe California made a name for himself. In the Yosemite valley. Do well regarded videos were distributed Kurt was doing some first this network. And he's gonna come on a talk with the outdoor guys here on Debian BT. About what speed climbing is and what it means for our future. As we move forward Kurt Smith welcome to the Carolina outdoors. Keep. Now Kurt you have moved it since your time out today Yosemite valley doing all of those kinds of course now. Now you're taken on the great plaza of the new river gorge area there in Fayetteville West Virginia. But we're gonna delve back a little bit into your past and I are in contact your opinion on that earned. Speed climbing let down while the mom all the all about it. There are certain sector burst out litmus Cisco integrated into this something that 1970 fat John long. Did a climb and has on el capitan and it took him one full day. Out. Just recently in the past week or so Tommy Caldwell. And and Alex Ronald became the first people to climb the nose route on Al campus and in under two hours. This is a 300 at that 3000 foot hold a granite it took him one hour 58 minutes and seven seconds. From the time they left the valley floor this off falls under the auspices of speed climbing. Tell us what you know in which your experiences been with the sport of speed climbing. It. Should accept it pretty remarkable achievement and I remember there and built upon you know bird the key generation now. I'm yet to think about the person than in the middle of the 1958 with Warren Harding. It take care and a couple of years. To kind of get the thing finally dying. And then later crackdown and. In his seat partners did the first one day it doesn't have the note. And 75 but even at tackle and he's. These routes and tried to do it is quicker and quicker stop for a lot of times you know that that debate team and it. You ARAMARK. Is pretty incredible. You know you're employing some pretty radical techniques appreciate. It out seconds and minutes out of your previous time. Well aimed. Usually it usually I say Saturday at these these times are held. By the the people take kimono on routes that they know. They practice. It practice. Amp practice that if I know the routes are well and hopefully they know their partners so well that they know each pounds. Each other's moves and they trust each other. To whatever degree but in the same light. Where these. Where Colin well and Connell made the record. Just prior to that and in fact maybe just less than a week. There were two fatalities with experienced climbers Al player to spell a thousand feet today death. They were going for a record but they were reportedly. Doing something called let's IMO climbing and that's kind of an aspect that state climbing. Can you tell us about Simon climbing and at what they inherent dangers are to that. Yeah absolutely I mean any time you're left him just moved swiftly. Whether it's not a big mountains. For our rock tape do you basically. You're tied to the rare each person's side of the red. And that it that in traditional already. Taken it and writing each other out for blame leaders that crime. You're basically just kept climbing and I think I'm where they. This year a hundred feet of rest between you your place in protection that you get. You know corporate aggregate roughly the same date. And then you're trying to avoid any fault because. If you are you open the people ready jet ski in the way from the person on the other end erected in the soccer ball. This estimate how many outs. Privacy using it as well as anybody these. Trying to be something really really fast it would it be just a lot out in the air press symbol what you contrast. The move which they have no control over its well. And Satan do you currently at doing something better Bernard grew up but made a name for yourself and and still do this as a seasoned athletes. Com it's something far different but motoring where he's really knows. Protection but follows are relatively minor. Usually maybe you'll have a spotter surmise a catchy says. You won't follow. There's something called free climb and as well where they're using data protection. And what the motivations. Of doing something like its lead climbing. More something like. Solo are free climbing. Get sort of costly everything when you're each given. A climb on Iraq based or mountain without roper partner. And I mean that's going to be the estimate. The committee adventure because yeah just youth. On the rock base with no protection and he's got a ball. It doesn't even have the highest crest obviously could use no room for error one. One wrong move where these are lock brakes and it gave over. There in this economy that you're definitely. You have to immerse them let me and that you do it right. It he had good protection than. No you're gonna survive a big fault. When it comes to beat darling there's there's no calling. Well an hour and I guess. Can you angers its founder the assembly climate association. I told climbing magazine that. After the weekend at the face. Fatalities which ironically enough hone other end from Caldwell we're going for the records that same day but because of the incidental they stop their pursuit of that day bit. I'm with state climbing quite you don't have time to public sector systems it's all fun and games until you lose a party like this. It's horrible unquiet. Curt Smith where where is it got a dad is speed climbing is becoming mainstream it's in the 20/20 Olympics the Tokyo games that is in an inside controlled environment. But as you know it's going to. You know be televised more and more people are gonna undertake these things. Do you have an opinion on where it's gonna get as steep climb in their ideas into the future. Yet again. He Embraer competitions economy were continue to grasp especially margins built. There is they're required to. Height and angle and route setting in particular all of us there's the climbing. That's going to be a natural. Growth of the sport that has been for awhile I've been here everything they had some athletes. That that question. Their own personal and various. ESP content can be part of that. I can't good. Be climbing on the big routes of the centerpiece of this without officers why are there other areas will overtake him and a traditional Arab. Approaches but I think you've got we're looks even more people. An absentee more people doing it. Just for personal you know whether they're trying to let the record just like a personal record that the in the we'll continue to grow but. That would become mainstream. On the web to get them to be yet they. Probably did the smaller percentage of girls did it average broke. It's. I guess it could be compared some but maybe to the four minute mile. That was broken and also on the Appalachian trail so many climbers are so many hikers. There were taken at six month endeavor and doing it end of month plus hiking teeth out I had 100. Plus miles. On that again we're talking about Tommy Caldwell and and Alex Arnold you have. Really smashed a record they broke it last four minutes they did these 3000 foot hunk of granite that knows that you cinema these el capitan and in one hour 58 minutes in seven seconds. From leaving the valley floor they broke it down almost four minutes it's 31 pitches. And this thing usually takes three to five days to climb level Curtis pretty amazing isn't it's. Yeah I mean that I read back to earth. And I kinda knows what's required blaze. In 1980 yet. I'm he's the bat and got you know rock climbing we grew up together what I'd pull together. We spent three I don't know law we didn't force base. The Qatar and because he's not to speak all the our gear. Ngo rated night evening I'm alleges. I've been asked me to imagine in 1986. You know what people are Galen on the big though it. That they don't today. You just say is spending the night on the ledges like it's no big deal that seems that I mean I'm sure it is and you can hear of the experienced climber many American. To me when I hear that a Mike. And nine Canada have the nerve. Still. Be able to have us. Restful sleep that night. Cabinet that the new debit you and even when I first got into Iraq comment I was deathly afraid of height and exposure. And I wanted it so bad that you just learned adapting get over it and no need to go grab. He's already spent the night on I'm not. Natural do you bring Puerto Reggie you're tied into the well you're always anchored. Let's give artists on. Ever do really really say that it that it takes you know a certain amount of high end and mental effort to get comfortable out there and break and the temperature comfortable what you're comfortable out there than it opens you up. Just thousands of adventures of a life that you. Salutes. That is the beauty of rock climbing is there is little mastery that you were never. Complete artists out there will always be something harder in any aspect of the sport the challenge you. Well sad part Smith fame climber given us inside on. Speed climbing and it may have better haircuts these days as curt than he did back to may be all right that's for sure and I thought that's who.

As a as well as a city bike to work. How do you do this logistically how do you achieves the different places and then. How do you put it together I guess history of course beat you wanna talk about the local history that's occurring. In that location in nick can vary wildly. Widely. From could bears candy to all the way down today York Cammie. Tom how is all of that chosen and piece together before we even hit the trail. Great there're a big part of my job is actually coordinating and partnering with other years with other groups and with expert panel history expert.
