What is the most basic and needed piece of equipment to survive and thrive in the wilderness? Arguably, it’s the knife. On that premise, everything else is gravy. But gravy is delicious and adored. So here is a site that dives deep into everything from the most basic to the over-the-top. Join me on my travels as I test gear, test my limits, and have fun. *Stories and reviews may be the product of free or discounted merchandise, but the words are honest.
Now Let Me Introduce Myself
Born in the South but forged in the West, I am a writer, adventurer, beer lover, and proponent of the Oxford comma. My work has been featured internationally, but Montana is my home. I’ve done a lot in my years: tobacco harvester, bull auction hand, pizza delivery, grocery stocker, Lit major, world traveler, advertising, chess player, violinist, coffeehouse founder, History minor, environmental leftist, future podcaster, National Park volunteer, social butterfly, bartender, Bicycle Ambassador, radio show host, uke player, book author, REI employee, and family man. Most of it was fun. Now I write, play, and drink, in no particular order. Chances are you’ll like me.
