You remember that guy that basically went viral after skiing the bird in all the ridiculous gear with like 4 gopro’s on? Turns out hes been spotted all over the country, and has even worn his full setup to the gym in NYC. Apparently he is “training for Alaska”. The story goes like this: this guys buddy goes up to valdez to heli ski each year and knew that this guy is some kinda psycho who takes things too far, so he told him he needs to train real hard for the trip. Ideally by wearing a 40lb pack and climbing gear as much as possible while skiing to get a feel for the “grueling conditions” he will face in AK.

One of the billion threads around the internet on this guy is here on TGR.

Gaper Spirit Animal

Sited at Snowbird earlier this season....

I think if you guys put an article up, maybe we can track this guy down, capture him, and put him in a zoo so scientists can study him. Word is he’s  a MASSIVE roided out dude who everyone describes as “Lattimer from the movie The Program” – Brian

Thanks for the info and the link to the video Brian. I am sure we can track this fellow down if we all work on it together.
