Ask The Savage: Water Purification

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 […]

Nevermind the Bollocks…Here’s the Savage Gentleman

  What’s crackin’ Savages? Here I am back again to impart you with tale of my exploits. This is going to be a bit of a series, as I’ve just been on quite a journey and I’d like to share my high points (of which there are many). I’d like everything to have context so […]

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.

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 […]

Backcountry Bush Bass

  Here’s a quick and easy recipe for just about any freshwater fish you might catch.  I use some ingredients that I foraged and some that I carry in the pack.  I didn’t use anything I wouldn’t have on hand in a backpacking situation. You could add some ingredients to it if you’re at home, […]
