Well today Bob Mitchell filling in for Angela today and what are the things that we have been talking about is have you ever stopped to help a stranded motorists have been helped by good samaritan. And you were broken down on the road boy you know kids are of a school. Summer vacation starting more and more more people in the road what can you do to prevent a breakdown. And what do you do it if we have while. Were going to help you with that today because we have a very special guest on the show. The author of roadside. Survival Walter burglar. Old Walter thank you so much for being part of the show. So then why did you may wait to get the idea to write a book about roadside survive. Well I didn't do this for a long time before I get the did I'd be added to do the book back about 1980 and I think that'll started. I David jumpstart to a lady who was so in dire straits. And that. Two things number one is how. Great she felt relieved she was afterwards and number two who has had an eight field shall begin looking from that point on. Four other colors in distress and began to realize quickly that. That of course became disabled for reasons besides just media jumped in so overtime my idea. And sending them to do more this and I enjoyed doing so much. But I was so so inexperienced so I begin to acquire tools and experience. To diagnose it as well has been supported payers and just. Built on itself and the open and so overall it was time an analyst. Policy expertise and experience certainly this year. What are the most common reasons for a breakdown. The most common reasonable and do players. Based on what I seen out there three quarters of people that died at assisted. Has had a tire issue that had a what terrible out on the greatest come off in the problems in store when they can't. Don't have the ability to recover in the bill themselves now. The other point 5% as a combination of running out of gas at the annual receipts. And the union just cuts also would not restart normally due to an electrical issue like a loose battery cable or a bit good battery. The war and the latest reason is being locked out of the vehicles. But by 475%. The people I've sent out there. Have had a tire issue. Right so what. Can you do as a driver to help prevent bright doesn't in the words but from the preventive maintenance point of view. The biggest. Thrust and give them my book which is remote site survival politics solutions to automobile breakdowns. Is. How to prevent breaking down. And should do is speaking if you got a your tires on the road that are rolling supporting your vehicle entry. And you take him in the race 5000 miles to be inspected by the guys this sort of deal and they do it did take off they check him out for any kind of damage. And they built some in the and he. Also. So it's been in the rotate them. On different wheels on the color that would extend the life of those tires as well as an usher in the post actually. I was speaking to Walt operator hears the author of the book called roadside survival. Oh does he author. You are author but your name is Walt the right night take its author Walt Brinker. That's what happens you drug into believing when when you're on the air good Butler in today's society. Aren't a lot of people afraid to. To help Samoan. I don't know I guess. I'm not afraid I I'm cautious and I don't think I'm reckless. I do have a very. Higher awareness of safety director. And so I don't know much of get caught short and effectively before it stopped. For anybody and I'm given I'm real close scoping out in and want to get out of the court walked back toward them on line is what do you lead the records figured out before we get to the but it by detecting kind of hostility toward me I just aboard the going to back in the car and drive off that's only happened one time analyst stops. I mean I would it applies solid sorry I'm a woman. Look in distress and war pulled over the side of the road and it was during the day. I would pull over to ask her if I could be of any help but there that some parts of the city or late at night on the expressway. I would not even I wouldn't do it. Well I would neither in template in some cases again it's a it's a judgment call. On the interstate. You're much safer I think seniority and so this university's someplace. But and it's. I'm only at one time like assailant had to abort after getting out and welcome back toward the car. I saw a bottle of liquor through the that would shield only on top of the council. The pickup truck on interstate ten in Texas. And a walker on the back episode booklet with what it's like going on in the backseat I just got back my car and drove off and called police. But it only time I've I've never spoken to somebody in the ask them what they need. So if let's say eight tire goes well and you pull over on the on the side of the road. Is the best thing to maybe try to call AAA if you have that or should you attempt to fix it yourself. Well on the commercial. Assistance companies. Are pretty good. Close to the big cities within officers were they have their own stance and the problems start to occur when they have to do that subcontract work out away from the city's. I mean countered that several times away from cities. Where they have. The democracy is to would have triple play in helped on the way into these these are shown up in there incompetent. Wednesday that showed up and just couldn't get the job done. In one case in Texas. A guy to a reduction in the resistant totally into a potentially affect CD decline miles earlier called in my house. I came back out for second sin and got him on the second trip out there. So. The commercial guys are putting it around down on the big cities in the countryside different story like. What are the most likely reason that you mentioned earlier than an engine Jewish of shutting Opel what is the most likely reason for that happening. Most likely be this is going up against. But there's also. A very close second that is something that we're serious analyst battery cable. That is where it went on to the battery post itself. The bottom line there is if if you can. You can wiggle battery post about battery clip on the post and boost the image that's probably the probably your problem right there. I gently and nicely thirty times as I encounter disk in his record nothing more than tightening equipment. Sometimes a play ample tightness or is titles and still though. If that's the case and what might remind you political paper clip trick like titles station paper puts my core. Like a piece of tape of about potential which is about the same height is supposed to on the battery. And they get to these little piece of equipment slight them between the Clinton in the post in an apartment down. That is just enough mobile world rebel and slightly indented the job done. What type of things could should chew. Keep the car like for instance I would not assume. It would be Smart to. Keep a spare gallon of gasoline in your car but what kind of things and you keep the car that we're if you engine overheat or you have minor problems that you should be able to fix them. Okay I'll start from the chemistry from the topic considering the chargers the most likely problem and then will went on the list and I'll try to be brief about it. The first off you ensure that the tools. That column which is that vehicle in music for changing tyres at correct. They're going to either king but the car we'll get the job done sometime that no recourse testing. Experimenting make sure they will in fact work on your core like to bet that natural and confusion by the public cycle by India but mentioned that. In the project works you have all the components to jacket you know all the tools to go in separate subject that's most fundamental thing the him. Changing tires one of the biggest. Problems to changing times is psychological. People don't get dirty I understand that I don't either. And so they get another most of typically connect so let them to news from expert not from Sumter regional war. So I have little big stone like war which is great for leaving them have to kneel down on hard. Real rocky shoulder to look Anderson was our door check out Olympics. I have I have found that when the tires of total of those electric ranchers trying to get the logs off of you you've got to. Tampa strength of Sampson. Well that definitely important to make it. Isn't that true that's true and therefore it is because it it's it's wise to actually run an experiment. On your car with you're too old to see if you can do that you allowed them suitably considerably in the don't think it destroyed America. But if you can't break it and I would solution at the so can be and screwed they need to go to play in the play him but he also involved. And essentially giving more leverage and I advocates we're getting nothing more complicated than say when a culture war it's a two foot long one inch diameter. Galvanized steel play a second spite. But you can slide over the in low here Le grange handle which is often not more than a foot long so it doesn't give you the very much leverage these slides that you over the handle. That cripples. The leverage on that on the bridge and don't get the job for adults that are very simple solution. Walter I've I've got to go to a break and I'll how can people get your book. They can do to placing it Amazon.com. It's there they can go to the orbit from Barnes & Noble. We're staples. Or they can go to my website which is Roche it's survival dot com and they are several ways that they can get it. And at Walter Brinker and it's called roadside survival correct. Right it was like all right thank you Walt so much. All right that'll. Get us to our next break and when we come back we have a Cuba pigs talk about Horry to Mora text messages that I did get a a text match rather lengthy one. Defending. The purchase. These six. Makes a very good points and I'll read that when we come back on WW oil. What are the things we've been talking about this afternoon is doesn't minister really need a 65 million dollar private jet to us spread the gospel. Of course we talking about corporal dollar ministries and they purchased. For their minister at gulfstream G 650 now the majority of the people who have phoned in and movies myself pulpit the money could be used. In a much better way a much bull or a brutal light. But I'd I'd do have. An opinion from someone else and everybody should have the right to. Have their own opinion and this is very support of the Nixon some very very good point solo retreat. If I were traveling. Two other countries brought in the gospel and feeding the hungry as doctor dollars to a with his family. Just the second I hate when this thing jumps. Me back it up a little bit okay. Then. And soon. Where are we here. I'll read it over I have Astaro I've followed doctor Donald ministry for over twenty years and you don't even know how to pronounce his name but you can judge of regarding the jet. A jet use for. Doing what he does. A jet used for preaching the gospel through the whole world. His travels scheduled lakes commercial flights in practical you obviously adult nobody goes to deport I didn't say he did feel deport. A dissident is money could probably use to feed more of the port. He offers ged classes rescues prostitutes. Promo items and much bull who are you to judge if you don't agree. Bill. I'm not trying to judge and to simply say and that if it were me I would think that the 65 billion dollars could be. You'd be used better. Then to buy a a personal. Jet to travel. We get edge oh are we ready for Jim hands so I think we are we're gonna break right now welcome back to your phone calls after the news it's. Now it's more WWL first news for chip and so.

If they don't mind him spending the money on that than against the so okay it just seems like to me.
