Had my first ever wipeout curling today. Put too much weight on my sliding foot (the one without any grip) and hit the floor fast. My left knee took the impact, and is quite sore. No swelling though, so hopefully didn't do too much damage.

Setting controls on Seymour for LVAR. Went at walking pace wearing full waterproofs as it was torrential rain. Not my finest control setting as a) I miscounted trails and took a nice big diversion, and b) I put the flag for #81 at #80 and didn't realise until I got to the real #80 and had to backtrack down a big hill to fix my mistake. D'oh!

Kits and back. Lots of people out watching the stormy seas. The water was as high as I've ever seen it at Kits, with the biggest waves breaching the seawall by the swimming pool.

Hiking 2:36:18 [1] 9.09 km (17:12 / km) +445m 13:49 / km
shoes: inov8 Mudclaw 275 Black

First snowy hike of the season - Brew Lake north of Squamish. I'd originally planned to summit Mt Brew as well, but it was super foggy so decided to save that for another day. 6-8" of snow in the meadows, but melting rapidly lower down.

I had to park 1.5km from the trailhead due to deep waterbars, but my car did very well to get as far as it did. Lots of rock percussion off the underbody, and a bit of wheelspin on the looser sections. Fun stuff!

The lake area was gorgeous. Definitely one to do again on a clear day.
