Filming of friends we'll discuss the latest on the green -- in this thing is blowing up.
The latest on Boston as both sides sit next to each other but we're not talking to each other to prevent that bombing he'll be taking your phone called the first things first.
If -- watching that -- you've seen you're about to see this show coming your way on Sunday may twelve Mother's Day.
Dallas in a Terrelle CD of the stars of National Geographic six ultimate survival Alaska.
It premieres this Sunday.
And Dallas into Ralph you've got to -- a friend Zach -- out of the pot gets its TV camera a year in studio welcome back guys thank you I -- backers they sort of television yesterday.
We're just downstairs video downstairs so -- Dow's first up -- Of the show is trying to kind of go back to -- the roots of Alaska where it was adventuresome people that went out and in.
So what National Geographic is done here is they took eight very legitimate explores.
Iditarod racers people at a summit in McKinley multiple times people who do cross country races.
And put him into the wilderness in Alaska and a way that's.
Similar to -- early nineteen hundreds expedition limited gear limited food in less to a true expedition across Alaska with people they know what they're doing but you are you competing against them -- -- -- Hence this.
I hate to say you're competing -- the state itself but you have to work with the elements -- what the state has to throw at you are.
Cause it's all -- -- get their first but it wasn't the premise of the show right in who made up the rules the minimalist.
Rules that is that you could survive on this but it would be struggle you know that's a really good good question because I think -- National Geographic wanted to do is have this really be a challenge for the best survivors and Alaska.
Sold dating voted to go into the rooms and this is what I do they -- what's the minimum food that you could travel across last gonna kind of downplayed the distances that we're gonna do.
So of course us being tough guys and go -- in there right off the bat.
We actually set the standard for ourselves when we -- out there.
And then things kind of escalated once we got there -- the food set standards of five pounds of beans and rice stayed the same and pretty Sunnis in expeditions are pretty long and pretty tough so.
In a way we kind of kind of that made her own bed there -- here let's listen to -- to show Dallas into -- TV.
Who see who did this and you'll see it on Sunday.
When you win the Iditarod as my dad has done and now just recently and I finally accomplished we become somewhat of a representative for the state of -- I didn't you -- person ever to finish dictator on youngest person to win the -- and young person and you can't let you go -- -- -- Brothers this is the most competitive field.
Think my mindset and thousands of -- comes from the CD.
At night if we're feeling might succeed is something we tried this is how we are going.
Now mind -- is everything.
It was seen as a great opportunity that competitive drive it's like nothing.
-- entire life.
Is focused on efficiency and speed that's the key to winning races by nature -- more than a group the -- you're gonna move doubts that.
Those payments to ease the rest of the camera.
Thing and catch your breath on.
-- you guys -- it together right this year -- that you did manage rescuing to travel together.
We had enough history between us that we can really rely on each other and I come into a camper a difficult situation and we wouldn't have to see -- the other guy was doing and who just -- Can -- in perfect concert and that was to us it was real strong point right.
-- fifty miles they understand 72 hours.
In 72 hours from the Brookes mountain range what are we seem to describe that for people never been to Alaska her about this leadership.
Did Brooks ranges as a massive mountain range across the northern part of Alaska and more specifically the part of the Brooks Range that we are and -- -- the -- gets mountains which are very famous drink and it peaks.
You go there to see these massive massive structures you go to their to to -- knees for in these mountains it's a very it's a destination in Alaska.
I've never been I don't think -- it ever been there.
And it was stunning absolutely incredible stuff.
And it's rugged this is the gates of the Arctic national park it is in -- -- -- got to crown jewel of the parks in Alaska.
It is a beautiful beautiful place and -- at things a mugger.
You just -- over he's not -- just twisted Alder trees.
The one point downhill and every step you take you've got to breakthrough bunch of trees tell us live there under -- jump over a minute it was a very challenging section and we got rained and snowed on.
On day one right off the -- now what is that -- what is the challenge to how many miles you have to go we have to we have to finish.
Well in that particular leg they just said get to this late -- -- X on the map probably -- site we couldn't.
On -- thirty miles or something like that but there is no line of sight when you go on to now go illegally downloaded or sideways going everywhere and my main memory from that one is rain and snow and brushed.
And -- -- hours on end where we are way over our heads and rush following -- trails in hazard trails made by -- matters.
-- just follow along hoping they come out somewhere illogical thankfully animals take the path of least resistance so you're doing pretty good if you -- follow their journey.
You actually you could follow that trail according to my city instincts and find it there at the end.
I mean is that because correct most -- walk and on the -- -- were walking not a rodent thinking that you're not gonna see a person our car you know this is where cars travel is on the road so yes you're gonna you're gonna see a bear in their somewhere.
That being said generally the bears don't want to see used to if they hear you coming to a colleague -- -- if they don't hear you coming you're gonna run into their button and turn around.
Basically knock your head off and that's how most people get mauled his state accidentally -- no -- that there.
Startle or you're in their territory and they're very territorial and they want to get you out of their territory or just.
-- you see the other thing that he told me it was when my first question yesterday is to do this on -- TV show you -- camera people.
To they had this scene -- as you are these guys hikers so that he environmentalists would it how they had -- they prepare.
The the camera guys -- really a kind of part of the team in some ways they got thrown in there.
They were not prepared from what we did many of the camera guys have never -- -- On -- shoot -- that someone had gone camping but never with their equipment they were constantly battling to try to keep.
Their equipment running as Terrell said it was rained brush more rain snow whatever that running you know -- -- running.
Otherwise demise will not be doing it from their standpoint from our standpoint we wish they would just -- in -- -- -- -- -- -- you know.
But it's of their experience level was not the same but -- they had to hike every step with -- so it did kind of hinder your pace -- times but honestly you know.
We kind of just work together and they're not on -- -- they have to be behind the camera but they were doing the expedition with us right and oh how long did it take.
-- -- out there for the whole trip you know is close to two months two months now and you put your life on hold for two months.
That's not put -- hole that's --
