    If you would like to make a thread with links to his various threads I would be happy to Sticky it in the Adventure and Questing subforum in his honor. That was really where his expertise shined here!

    Sad to hear this..... so young and so full of life. Although I'm not into outdoors survival and camping at all I throroughly enjoyed his threads dealing with such things as it was a breath of fresh air over endless threads about this and that light seeing him talk about cooking sausage and eggs and burning woods he chopped outdoors that just sticks in my mind big time vs a 20,000 lumen scorcher light.
    I didn't think much of the Adventure and Questing outdoors part of the forum till he came along.

    I never met Kevin in person, but always enjoyed his videos and forum posts – I greatly appreciate the knowledge that he shared. Sorry that I never had the pleasure of sharing a camp fire with him. Condolences to his family. RIP Woods Walker.

    I read this as the wind was howling outside after sundown, looked at a M61WLL modified 6P sitting on my coffee table and pondered briefly. My brain went back to about 2016 when I bought both the light and the drop in. It came down to a coin toss of WLL or NL. The coin toss meant WLL. But Woods Walker raved about the NL. Others did too but for some reason the words WW wrote here convinced the little imp on my left shoulder to whisper something I didn't quite hear to the OCD voices in my head and next thing you know that old 6P was sportin' an NL.

    So I'd already had my 7pm catnap and decided to take the ole 6P out for a jaunt. Wind still howling outside so I rumaged through the coat closet pondering what WW would wear on a night like this. A nice puffy 3-way snow boarding parka, double insulated stocking cap and two pair of thin gloves for dexterity and insulation. Oh, and water proof hiker boots. I'm going Woods Walkin'. No need to pack granola and a fishing hook or shelter. No need for a fire starter, a gps or a camel pack. I live in the city. There's a 24 hour Kwiki Mart a quarter mile away in every direction.
    Remaining woods here are an acre or three. A forest……100 acres.

    However new batteries went into the 6P, a Bravo hi/lo was clipped to a pocket, a tube of WW approved beeswax chapstick was loaded into my other pocket. I found myself next to a creek where it is rumored the fish have three eyes on one side and smelled the cold air Jack Frost was delivering after a few spring like days. I looked up at the stars. Stars…… wow I see real stars tonight. It was if WW had clicked them onto high mode this evening as they were brighter than usual. It occured to me that batteries don't run empty in the big wilderness in the sky so perhaps he was in charge of shining down on anybody who took his advice and went woods walkin' this evening.

    Wow, shocked to hear this. I just watched a couple of his videos 2 days ago on some Malkoff stuff he had (for the 2nd/3rd time). And I remember watching him going through the woods and thinking this guy would be hard to keep up with. I enjoyed how he would present himself in his videos, very down to earth guy. Life is short. RIP.

    Waited a while to post on this one, such a sad sad day and a horrible loss for many of the communities I hold dear. Not many like him left in the world and there will never be a replacement.

    Hello Kevin,

    Well... it looks like you have taken this adventure to the next level.

    You are missed.

    Enjoy "the LIGHT."

    That's sad news! I don't usually visit the Cafe, but just caught sight of the latest post which was this.

    R.I.P. WW and condolences to your family.

    I saw this thread last night before I tried to sleep and it hurt. I had some down time with nothing that HAD to get done and spent an hour going back over some old mega/woodswalker YouTube videos- BEFORE I went to bed and did my last minute forum check and learned of this loss. Weird how that works. I had just been appreciating his love of the outside and learned minutes later....
    I hope he knows how much he is and was appreciated and I send my deepest sympathies to his friends and family.

    Thanks to the OP for letting us know.

    I just watched the rocket stove video and it so inspired me I just took my own little gas camping stove outdoors into the cold to boil a pot of water to make a big cup of tea. It was my first time using the stove despite having had it for years, and my first time using genuine fire to heat water.

    I came back inside with everything and that tea is steeping now as I found this thread.

    As said above by others I regret not reaching out more to WW. I have been moved personally both by him and his content many times.

    Same here, I always enjoyed seeing his posts. Wish I kept up with the forum more often, frequently because of his posts, actually. Will miss him.
