Running out of water crossing the Gobi Desert feat Ash Dykes

In this episode of When it hits the fan we talk to world-record-setting adventurer and extreme athlete Ash Dykes.

Ash first came to the public’s attention when he trekked across Mongolia, solo and unsupported, in 2014. Two years later, he set his sights on Madagascar, becoming the first person to hike across the country via its eight highest peaks. And in 2020 he completed Mission Yangtze – following the 6,500km length of Asia’s longest river.

Ash Dykes is an explorer, extreme athlete, motivational speaker and 3x World First Record Holder.
