Todd Kirby once offered to carry my backpack into the backcountry. At first, I was going to let him, but then I was like — no, don’t be lazy — and just had him carry the heavier stuff (read: beer.) Long story short, the beer was the one thing I needed on the hike in. It’s important to stay hydrated kids! Anyway, here’s Todd’s footage from last year. In addition to being Minnesota nice, he also happens to be good at snowboarding.
