This is "Joan" (I forgot to ask for her real name). She runs the local bowling alley, with her son, in Pismo Beach, CA • I lost my ring whilst throwing some balls at a clown (don't ask) and she went out of her way to find it for me, and made the appropriate "ah, lost your ring in a clown did you" joke (complete with licking her finger action) • Joan, and Pismo beach have won our hearts tonight
Someone's got a tan, and is not impressed with my 'reportage'.

We spent a lot of today in Californian traffic, which equates to predicting whether the Civic or Prius driver with 3/4 of their front bumper hanging off is going to suddenly changes lanes at 80mph • So here's a picture of @lausmuzz 's bike because it's much cooler than cars and because this empty trail in JT was much more vibes than the drive to San Diego.

#sockdoping in Sedona for the next 3 days • I'm going to go out on a limb and say the riding here is equal to, if not better than, Moab • Terrain is way more technical but flowy at the same time (packed dirt turns to sand turns to loose rock that will slide under the wheel; means you have to be at 💯all the time) but the views on the climbs are 😱and the downhill is 🎢

Surprisingly, fell in love with the Grand Canyon • Defo coming back and doing a 2 day backpacking trip down to camp on the river sometime in next 2 years, who's in? • Also @lausmuzz looks (almost) fresh at the top and I was a sweaty, cold, salty eyed mess. Standard.

I've never really been bothered about the Grand Canyon, I thought it would be overrated. I was wrong. I had no idea how big it was and the amazing variety of terrain from the top of the rim to the Colorado River approx 6miles down • We decided to hike the South Kaibab trail, aiming for The Tipoff, the maximum distance down (4.5 miles and just over 2000ft one way) you're supposed to do in one day. We left camp at 6am and reached the trailhead at 7am, it was around 50f at the the top. We had the trail to ourselves (we overtook some other hikers and didn't see anyone again till Skeleton Point) • There's no water stations on the trail, so you have to carry a litre, per person, per hours hiking time, which meant 4 litres each for Laus and I (you have to climb 2000ft back up and it's approx 82f once you get into the Canyon) • About 3 miles down we met with a Japanese guy in jeans and a flannel shirt (it was 80f by then) he was confused and in trouble. He'd hiked to the river the day before (and got trapped there in the dark). He was trying to make his way back up but had no water or food, and still 2000ft (2hrs) left to climb to get back to the TH. I gave him a litre of my water and a bottle, and told him to get in the shade for a bit. He gulped it almost all down and carried on hiking. We carried on for another mile, but couldn't stop thinking about him (people have to get airlifted on this trail a lot). We turned around and made an effort to catch back up with him. We found him sat on the hottest part of the trail about 2 miles from the top, no water left, looking in an even worse way. We gave him another half litre and made him follow us up to the shade. Luckily there were 5-6 other hikers there and they gave him some electrolyte sweets. We stayed with him for about 10 mins. He was looking a lot better and the other group said they'd keep an eye on him. The trail was getting hotter and we still had to get back to the top with a litre and a half less water than we should have had at that point, so we set off • Point is; If someone needs help and you can give it, do it. It might be you next time.
