G.O. 066 - 2014 Swanson Slide Jump Trip Canyon Rescue

As the North Fork of the King’s River cuts through the Sierra Nevada it reveals a canyon playground beloved by experienced canyoneers called Jump Trip. It has been the site of numerous injuries and rescues. In 2014, a group of three were forced to make tough decisions when one of the party suffered a broken ankle. Bronic and Brian share the story of Brian and Daniel’s extraction from the canyon and Bronic’s intimidating solo as he runs to seek help. Big jumps, slippery slides, stuck rope, misplaced keys, overly valued wetsuits, and paper clothes care of Lower Jump Trip Canyon.

G.O. 051 - Turning Out Horses With Cyndi Lang

A Mom and Me Horseback Riding ad in a magazine unexpectedly set a new course in Cyndi Lang’s childhood.

She and Jason spoke at a barn in Santa Clarita where they discussed the many facets of horsemanship, the responsibilities of owning and caring for horses, dealing with a spinal injury, and the phrase “green and green make black and blue.”
