Just kidding. Seriously if there was an avalanche during one of your backcountry adventures would you be prepared? Do you have the necessary equipment and more importantly do you know how to use it? Uncle Travelin' Matt does and he has posted a great article on his blog about a great place to test your avalanche beacon skills. Check it out here. And if you ever run into UTM or Bumpy listen to what they they have to say and then offer to buy them a beer!
