very prolific new-router as well as inventor. ironic that he dies while snowshoeing since he basically invented the modern snowshoe!

Perhaps a little early, but what a lucky sod! What a wonderful way to go, out having fun with his wife snowshoeing.
"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is not a path and leave a trail."

I'm with Woody Allen: I'm not afraid of death, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
