So when I'm not up in the mountains trying to be a general
nuisance, or out adventuring and proving Murphy's law only applies
to me, I spend a relatively calm/mundane life as an Engineer at an
Oil and Gas company. How's business you ask? While it might be
awesome to fill your tank for the price of Laundry detergent, it
