Funny! Seems the canister fuel wont explode in the fire but if thrown against hard rocks, they explode!! Yet another reason thru-hikers are a danger to others.........

That was awesome.

Funny, almost realistic. One of the benefits from being overweight!

No freakin' way I'm going on a diet!

That is why I don't use cannister stoves.

Would've been saved by one of my 90 lb winter packs.

I watched this 37 times, it's definitely not done with mirrors and wires...I think it's real.

There's a reason they put all those rocks there - pick a couple up and put them into your pack for downward stability.

I've looked at this a dozen times. Is it real? It sure looks like it. Has anyone found a news article about it? I looked and couldn't find anything. However, I did find this:
Hiker blown off mountain (http://www.summitpost.org/dangerous-winds-blown-right-off-the-mountain/170697)

That video is pretty scary if real.

It's done with an app called "Action Movie"

I got blown over the top of Mt Adams once, good thing I landed in a snow drift on the other side. I was probably airborne for maybe 5 feet. I did open up my jacket for more surface area and jumped up to get airborne.

No doubt the guy in the video got knocked off his feet, but no way did he go flying through the air that far and explode on landing!

OMG, R.I.P. This really puts things into perspective. :p

What would have been cool is if he got blown up and thrown right back where he started...and then blown away again upon standing...now Tha'd be sumthin'
