Here’s the recorded video of a 5-minute talk I gave at Battery San Francisco about Fix Maps. The talk format is called “Ignite” which calls for 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds.

Snow caves are fun to build and provide warm places to sleep and take shelter from a storm. This is a brief how-to guide to building a snow cave.
The snow cave in this example was built by 4 people near Skinner Hut at the edge of the timberline in late-December 2015 at 11,620 feet. Builders were Brett Poulin, Chris, Nick, and me, Neal Mueller. The cave we built was large enough to sleep and provide eating quarters and shelter for 4 people. It included a vapor escape for cooking.Read More

Here’s a comparison chart that I put together.
When in Iceland I recommend renting a vehicle. It’s a round island with a single ring road.
When renting a vehicle I recommend a 4×4. There are no trees, so you can drive anywhere.
When renting a 4×4 I recommend renting a Land Rover. The British were an adventurous lot.
When renting a Land Rover, get a Defender. It protected the King of England well enough now didn’t it.
When renting a Defender, get a Super with the armor. Iceland is icy.
When getting a Super, get a modified Super. You’ll want the snorkel, compressor, and 38″ tires.
Use ISAK 4×4 Rental.
