Interesting article:

Like a lot of things in Alaska, the annual Mount Marathon Race in Seward is famously brutal, even dangerous. Which is precisely why Michael LeMaitre ran it--the last day he was seen alive.

It's cuben. Obviously. Sheesh.


Re: the article. A bizzare situation and almost makes me think he simply left the grid. Maybe had it planned all along.

"Love the new avatar, Doug. Is that a Sil poncho?"

Actually, it's a new fabric that's lighter than cuben but retains the stretchiness of sil, while being stronger than titanium. And comes in nice, bright colors.

It was developed by Roger Caffin, hydrostatic tested and approved by Richard Nisley, and is eagerly being sought by cottage gear makers worldwide.

"being sought by cottage gear makers worldwide"

Very clever and, with your new ID, they won't be able to find you.
