My Locale one snowball away from big trouble
About Me Hiker, rower, bicyclist. I go light because I'd rather feel like a guy walking in the woods than a pack-mule hauling a load. Now the maker of the Backcountry Boiler, undeniably the baddest way to heat water on the planet.

That's funny, I came across that last night and had assumed it had been up for a while. It is gorgeous. Too bad about the use of Flash. I heart html5.
