Best Part of the Gear Test: Reuniting with all the ripping testers and meeting newbies. Oh, and fondling all the new stuff for next year. And the world-famous Utah 3.2 beer.... How delicious is that?
How would you describe the conditions today: Highly variable with gale-force winds, blizzard-like visibility and four inches of spackle on an ice crust.
If you were stuck on an island and could have three things, what would they be: Beer, a dog whistle, and duct tape.
