    Ball warmer seats don't work too well at this point.

    When all else fails, ditch the 4X4 : images_429d76fe43e06c65d193c07824a02cf06b2d701d.jpg

    Stay inside, build a warm fire and sip some of this : http://www.alaskadistillery.com/

    Side note: I met the owner of Tuuli. (aka : AK Distillery) I calibrated some flow meters for them while I was there . Their products are made from Yukon Gold potatoes and local berries and other cool stuff.

    Another side note: The employees were always in a real good mood when I went there. Just sayin.
