‘Adventure journalist’ (read: professional nutcase) Zoltan Istvan makes good his escape after riding down an active volcano.

With summer just around the corner and the snow all but gone, next winter seems a long way off. Unless you live somewhere near where you can shred (be it dome, dryslope or glacier) the summer can be a bit of a disappointment whiling away the six months or so until it snows again.
