NEXT STOP SAN DIEGO-TRANSCRIPTION
00:00-00:05 JON: Hi, I’m Jon Olson and welcome to Next Stop from a city heralding our nations best weather.
00:06-00:19 Next Stop Logo Rolls
00:20-00:41 JON: San Diego, our nation’s 8th largest city has incredible weather, with great weather you’ve got lots of happy people. In fact, that is their slogan here in San Diego, happy happens, and it is definitely happening on this episode, where we will take you to some of the top attractions. We’ll also feature a world class historical hotel. Happy people, local music and more in this episode of Next Stop from San Diego. The fun starts now!
00:41 Next Stop logo
00:44 JON: Legoland California is a 128 acre park with over 50 family friendly rides and millions of legos. We’re in for education, adventure, and fun
01:01 JON: I’ve been hearing about Legoland California for a long time and I’ve never been here. So far, I’m super impressed Julie.
JULIE: I’m glad, I’m glad you are hear for one thing.
JON: Thank you.
JULIE: And I’m glad you are impressed for another. I think a lot of people expect certain things when they come here, they say Legoland, you have lego models, well we do. We have more than 22,000 lego models within this 128 acre family theme park, we have more than 57 million bricks that make those models.
01:31 JON: You have more than just the Legoland here, this is Las Vegas, you’ve got San Francisco, we have Washington DC, we have New York which is uber cool, but you also have a water park.
JULIE: World’s first Lego themed water park which we opened last year, and it’s great too because again, it is designed for the 2 to 12 year olds and there are not a lot of water parks out that are designed just for the younger set.
JON: So how do you incorporate lego’s into like a roller coaster, or into a water park? How do lego’s fit into that?
JULIE: You know, one of the coolest thing with the water park is build a raft river. This is a unique concept just designed for us, we have inner tubes with actual plates on them, and kids can build using soft lego bricks and kind of build their own rafts as they float down this lazy river.
02:15 JON: There is over 50 rides to choose from here at Legoland. Mike, my camera guy and I are on the dragon. Arrrr!
02:32 JON: Legoland is incredibly impressive, and somebody has to build this stuff. Let’s talk about Star Wars here, this is one of your new exhibits. There are so many millions of pieces, like where do you even start?
GARY: Around us, these are all scenes from all of the Star Wars films.Right behind us is actually from Star Wars Clone Wars. From start to finish, this whole area takes about a couple of years from original concept to starting to do design work, to actually figuring out the layout of where it’s going to go and how we are going to get everything animated and working.
03:13 JON: You are going to help me build something, right? What are we going to build?
GARY: Yes, we are going to build you.
JON: We’re going to build me?
GARY: Yeah, we’re going to build you.
JON: What are we going to do with me?
GARY: Well you can go travel around Legoland.
JON: Let’s do it.
GARY: OK Perfect. I will build one, and you build as well. I will just give you the pieces, so, you are doing great so far.
JON: I haven’t done anything!
03:41 JON: So the coolest thing about building the mini me that Gary actually helped me do is I get to place it anywhere I want in Legoland, San Francisco…I’m choosing Washington DC, because we are planning to do a Washington DC area show in season 2, and I know we’re going to visit the Lincoln Memorial so I’m going to place myself right on the steps and next time you see me in Washington DC I’ll be standing with Mini Me on the Lincoln Memorial.
04:07 JON: I expected a lot from Legoland California, and it far exceeded my expectations. It’s a child’s dream, and it wasn’t so bad for me, and Mini Me, either.
04:18 Next Stop logo
04:26 JON: San Diego has one of the top sailing communities in the US. Today we set sail with Dennis Connor’s America’s Cup yacht, the Stars and Stripes.
PATRICK: Alright, welcome aboard everyone, welcome. Welcome aboard Stars and Stripes. You are more than welcome to help out, this is 300 pounds and it goes 11 stories up, so we’re hoping someone wants to help out pulling. We do it the old fashioned way, heave ho. So, you are more than welcome to help out on that, we also have the grinding pedestals here, so the coffee grinders, we will get everyone involved in that. Almost there! There are three gears and you will never hear me tell you to slow down
MAN: Once we do that, it’s straight and in the center, right?
PATRICK: So we are going to pick up speed, you will feel it.
05:17 PATRICK: This is actually an IACC International America’s Cup Class, they are designed for where they race. They are designed for one race and that’s it, and then they basically throw them away, you know, they are not used again.
05:44 JON: You seem like a young captain, how long have you, did it take you to learn how to sail on this big boat?
PATRICK: I grew up sailing Lake Michigan, and just over the years of getting used to, I started as crew and then getting used to the boat just worked my way up to captain.
JON: What is the sailing community like here, it seems pretty vibrant, there is so many boats in the water.
PATRICK: It’s huge. San Diego is like a Mecca for sailing. If you look in the local marinas, it’s all masts, not too many power boats, it’s because of the great weather.
JON: Patrick, thanks for having us on board on behalf of everybody on board, it’s been a great day.
PATRICK: we’re glad to have you, thanks for coming out, we appreciate it.
06:32 Next Stop Logo
06:35 JON: Coming up on Next Stop, the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park.
06:42 next Stop Logo
06:45 JON: The San Diego Zoo is one of the most popular tourist attractions in all of Southern California. Lions and tigers and bears and hippo’s…oh my!
07:03 JON: So this is my long lost brother John, he’s the tiger whisperer here at the San Diego Zoo, I like that name, the tiger whisperer. Did you just actually call these tigers down for us?
JOHN: Well they are very food motivated, it’s not like I have some kind of magical power over them or anything, they come down because a lot of the time when they hear me call, they are going to get fed.
JON: This is mama and the two babies.
JOHN: Two boys 5 months old, Christopher and Connor, just tipped the scale at 50 pounds yesterday. They were about 3 pounds when they were born. This is mom’s 4th litter. Whatever moves gets torn to pieces, makes me want to put a piece of furniture in there to see if they can wreck it like my cats at home do.
07:47 JON: Ok Nate, I’ve always been intrigued by hippo’s, they seem so peaceful and docile, but they are not really that peaceful and docile, are they?
NATE: No, no, they have a pretty bad reputation, they are considered the most dangerous mammal in Africa and it’s true they kill more people annually than lions, leopards, elephants and buffalo, any of the other dangerous animals you can think of. It looks kind of like they are smiling sometimes, their lips just kind of open up and those incisors are right there and it looks like a smile. Hippo’s don’t really smile, it’s just a kind of an accident of nature.
08:28 JON: So they say hippo’s aren’t very friendly, but actually they are friendly to guys like me, they like me, they know me, I’m kind of a hippo whisperer kind of guy who can actually get up close and personal, and even give it a kiss. Nice hipp!
08:50 JON: So who doesn’t love a koala bear, they are so cute, they’re so cuddly, but they are not bears, right Jen?
JEN: They’re not bears at all, they are actually a marsupial, they do carry their joey’s in a pouch just like a kangaroo or a wombat. The males don’t have a pouch, only the females do, and they’ll actually carry their young for at least 6 months in that pouch.
JON: And this is a male, introduce us to this cute guy.
JEN: This is Burly, and Burly is very special. He has an aboriginal name, Burly, it means star. We were hoping that once he came out of the pouch at 6 months he would be our star, our little ambassador here at the San Diego Zoo, and he has really turned out to be that.
JON: Look at that face! Obviously we had a great morning at the zoo, it’s been a pleasure meeting you and Burly, but we are off to the Safari park next, what should we expect up there?
JEN: It’s a unique experience, that everyone needs to experience on a day when they are in California. There is just so many animals up there and they have them all together, actually mingling like you would see in the wild, different species together.
09:54 LEAH: Welcome to the safari caravan, welcome aboard.
JON: I’m excited, it’s going to be fun.
LEAH: Alright. Are you ready to head out to Africa?
JON: Let’s go to Africa!
LEAH: Alright, sounds good. We are going to be cruising by our elephant herd here in just a minute. The worlds oldest white rhinocerous standing in the shade of our adult male Rothschilds giraffe. Having animals like this is super important to us, we break longevity records here all the time, we estimate Atomba’s ago to be about 45 years old, we are not 100 percent for sure as she did come out of the wild.
10:38 JON: Look at all these animals living together in harmony.
LEAH: It’s absolutely amazing, watching them interact with each other, that’s what we do out here every day, you see all those great interactions with each other. Our rhino’s interact directly with all the animals in this exhibit, everyone hangs out with everyone else. Sabba is our adult male giraffe, Sabba is a very handsome gentleman, and he is looking very proud of himself because all the babies out here are his. So Sabba here, Sabba is looking for a snack.
JON: Is that what he is looking for, or is he looking to eat me, am I a snack?
LEAH: You guys wanna feed Sabba?
JON: Yeah!
LEAH: Come here buddy. So, the easiest way to feed a giraffe is just like this,you can kinda hold that leaf up for him, and he is going to take that right from you. Rule of tongue for a giraffe is an inch of tongue per foot of giraffe, so Sabba is about 17 and a half feet tall, so he is going to a 17 and a half inch long tongue, and on Sabba you can really see these osicones, these horns on top of his head? Osicones is just a latin word for hair covered horns, they’re lumpy, they’re bumpy, they’re big, he’s got huge osicones. He actually has 5 of them, there is one on the middle there with 2 big ones on top of his head, and there is actually 2 more little ones behind that, and he would use those in combat with other males.
11:55 JON: One of my favorite shows that I’ve watched for years is Big Cat Diary, and my favorite animal to watch is the cheetah, so when I knew at the end of our San Diego Zoo and Safari Park day we were going to do the cheetah run, I was pretty excited.
JANET: I know, it’s pretty incredible, and we are so happy with it. Our track itself is really impressive being 100 meters long, it’s the longest dedicated cheetah track, and we are running outside of an exhibit, it’s an open environment, so people are standing right there, just a few feet from the cheetah, the world’s fastest land mammal, sprinting full speed right past them.
12:38 JANET: Never in history has a wild cheetah attacked a person, they’re always going to choose flight over fight, and I think that does make them endearing, they are that sensitive predator, they are this incredible animal to run 70 miles per hour, to be such perfect athletes, it just really does make them so unique and special.
JON: Well thank you for sharing them with us.
JANET: Well thank you.
JON: The whole experience was just an amazing day at the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park.. I can’t imagine why anybody coming to San Diego wouldn’t want to do this.
13:11 Next Stop Logo
13:14 JON: Coming up on Next Stop, the historical and legendary Hotel Del Coronado.
13:21 Next Stop Logo
13:24 JON: San Diego has some of the best beaches around, in fact, the weather and beaches are a way of life here in San Diego. The Travel Channel just rated this beach, Coronado Beach, as one of America’s finest beaches, something locals and visitors have known for years. When you are done with your day at the beach, make sure and visit Coronado town, a quaint turn of the century town, complete with beautiful homes, parks, restaurants, shopping and so much more. For more information on Coronado and San Diego, visit alaskaair.com and book your vacation today, you will be glad you did.
13:52 Next Stop logo
13:55 JON: The legendary Hotel Del Coronado has hosted many celebrities throughout time, from royalty, to presidents, to Hollywood. Today, they host the Next Stop crew.
14:10 CHRISTINE: I am the Hotel Del’s resident historian.
JON: Nice.
CHRISTINE: And the hotel was built in 1888, and we have a lot of history here, the hotel was actually built as a destination resort way before there was such a thing.
JON: So what inspired it back then? Why would they have built such a huge beautiful resort back in the day?
CHRISTINE: Well we’re looking in the wrong direction, the reason they built it here was out that way.
JON: The ocean. Location.
CHRISTINE: Location, location., location. It’s a beautiful location. There is something about coming into the Del that is awe inspiring and people, even little children, understand that it is a very special place, and that is all still here. So much of our interior achitecture, our intertior molding, design is still the way it used to be. All our lovely verandas you can see behind us, it’s actually beautiful here.
15:05 JON: There is a wide variety of accommodations here at the Hotel Del, and this is one of the newer rooms, this room is beautiful.
CHRISTINE: This is a beautiful room, it really speaks to the glamour that was with the Del from the very beginning, and this is in our victorian building which is 123 years old, but you would never know it from this room, it looks like a fashionable room from the hollywood era.
JON: You also have some cottages?
CHRISTINE: We do, we have Beach Village, which is a resort within a resort. It’s a private enclave, it’s own pool, it’s own concierge, it’s own services. It’s very private, it’s where the Hollywood people today like to come and stay.
JON: Well let’s stay along the hollywood line, because you’ve had movies filmed here, Some Like It Hot, Marilyn Monroe.
CHRISTINE: Yes, and it’s a classic, it was voted the number 1 comedy of all time.
15:55 JON: This 28 acre resort is not only stunning on the inside, but there is a lot going on on the outside, They’ve got a great pool, there is every beachfront activity you can possibly imagine, this place is kid-topia. They ever turn this into an ice skating rink during the winter months, how cool is that? My next stop, the spa.
16:19 JON: This is the life Corey, chilling out at the Spa Del. Spa’s just aren’t for women, guys dig spa’s too.
COREY: You said that right Jon. I’ve got to tell you one of the most interesting things I have noticed is that men just don’t appreciate what a spa has to offer. What Mandy is doing right now is not only applying a nice moisturizer to your hand so it will feel real nice later on when you go to talk to your wife, your girlfriend, or any other body that you like to hold hands with, but right now she is pouring a little wax on there, and it feels a little warm, very sensual right now.
JON: It does.
COREY: But in a few minutes what you will find is that it will be coated on there just like candle wax.
JON: I like it. After I do this I gotta do something sporty. You know what I think I will do?
COREY: What do you think you are going to do?
JON: I think I will try out surfing.
COREY: You know, this is the place to do that. Look just behind us folks, fantastic out there.
17:14 JON: This is Gnarly Neal, and he’s bound to get me up on this surfboard, on those waves.
NEAL: OK, here we go, paddle, paddle, paddle. Here it comes, hang on, hands back,toes up, here you go, bring that one foot up, good, good. Let’s throw on our wetsuits and we’ll head on out.
JON: Let’s do it!
NEAL: Alright.
17:49 Next Stop Logo
17:51 Stick around for artistically blended blues, jazz and rock and rool on Next Stop, San Diego.
17:58 Next Stop Logo
18:01 JON: San Diego’s famed Gas Lamp District is a 16 block area, equal parts stately and fun loving. The district, which gets its name from gas lit street lamps along 5th Avenue, has gone through many incarnations. Today you will find numerous restaurants ranging from burger joints to 4 star italian bistros, and much more. Numerous wine bars and night clubs brings this district to life at night and give it a vibrant pulse. If you are looking for action in San Diego, the Gas Lamp District is where it’s at.
18:40 Singing
19:14 JON: Our musical guest on Next Stop San Diego is Len Rainey and his Midnight Players.
LEN: The band has been with me now for about 20 years. The band is some of the same guys that have been with me for 20 years. We just got back from Japan, just got back from Chicago, so I’ve been on the road for about 3 weeks, I haven’t seen a bed, a real nice bed, in about 3 weeks.
JON: And this is home for you?
LEN: This is home for me, this is home.
JON: What do you love about San Diego?
LEN: San Diego, the weather.I mean id you, you have to pay for the weather here but the weather is fantastic, and when you have so many great things to see here too, I mean you’ve got the zoo, you’ve got Sea World and all the rest of the things too.
19:48 Singing
20:09 JON: How do you describe your music?
LEN: You know, it’s a mix, it a lot of original stuff, a lot of rhythm and blues, um, it comes from a lot of different angles, I’m an old rock and roll bass player, but I used to like a lot of soul and blues so, I kind of mixed it up together I used to call it jazz rock soul, folk funk is what we used to call it, so it’s a mixture of everything.
20:30 Music
20:43 JON: Did you see Anchorman?
LEN: I’ve seen a little bit of it yeah.
JON: OK,so Ron Burgundy was the Will Farrell character, riight?
LEN: He used to be here.
JON: He signed of every newscast, every night, with a message to San Diego, I want you to sign off with that message tonight.
