Ask The Savage: Water Purification

  Hey Savages, I interrupt your normal programming to present you with this question from Jeremy from California, USA. “My friend Dominic, told me that you are the people to ask about water purification systems. I am going to be traveling Asia so I am looking at a few bottle based systems and need some […]

London Calling

  I’m flyin’ high over Tupelo, Mississippi with America’s hottest band… and we’re all about to die…wait, that was from a movie. I actually rode alone in relative safety along with 525 strangers. Safely, not necessarily comfortably; I stand at 6’2″ and airplanes aren’t necessarily known for excessive leg room. Ahhh Air-travel, showing us that ‘class […]

Happy Feet: Thoughts on Socks

  What’s crack-a-lackin’ Savages? I was packing and getting ready for an upcoming adventure (don’t worry, you’ll hear all about it) and I decided I needed new socks. Socks and underwear are often an overlooked bit of kit, so I thought I’d share mine on the most maligned of Christmas gifts. Remember Lieutenant Dan’s two […]

Trail Energy and How to make Pemmican!

  Portable, Shelf stable, Compact and Energizing. Modern convenience has given us the protein bar, gels, and chews in a variety of colors shapes and sizes. Most of us have tucked away one of these next to a sack of trail mix or jerky. Today, I’ve got not one but two videos for you! The […]

The Six-Five on BUGGIN’ OUT! (pt. 3)

  Welly, Welly, Well then my little Savages…Here we are together again. Thus far we’ve gone over what bugging out is and how to get home from where ever you may be; today we’ll be talking about what we should have at our home base. After all what’s the point in going through all the […]

The Six-Five on BUGGIN’ OUT! (pt. 2)

Back again Savages! If you missed Part 1 go back and read it! Now that we’ve explored the why and when, let’s talk about the what. That’s right, let’s talk about gear. I want to cover the GHB I was talking about earlier. Now, rather than get all hung up on making this a gear […]

The Six-Five on BUGGIN’ OUT! (pt. 1)

What’s Cracka Lackin’ Savages? TooooDay, I thought I’d share some of my thoughts on Buggin’ Out and Hunkerin’ Down. Pick a reason, it doesn’t matter too much as long as it’s disastrous. Got a reason? No, no, that’s too far. Let’s not say Apocalypse or Ragnarok. If you’re going to pick something like that, all […]

Teach a man to fish

Whaaaat’s crackin’ Savages? Alright, I’ve written a bit about fishing here and I thought that I might give you a different spin on things. I’m all about keeping nature wild and clean so that it’s around for all future generations. No other group has more of a vested interest in keeping wildlife healthy than hunters […]
