Trail HEats: Spicing up the Great Outdoors

  Thousands of styles and flavors, with a squeeze and a tap hot sauce is a sure fire way to spice things up on the trail.   Old Faithful: The Louisiana hot sauce has been a staple in the states for turning bland eggs into fiery excitement. So prolific it’s included in the MRE’s issued […]

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, […]

Lake Mead Legendary

      I was just on Lake Mead doing some Bass fishing. In case you don’t know, Lake Mead is one if not the premiere Bass fishing lake in the U.S. There are some real lunkers pulled out of that lake well over 30 lbs. I didn’t feel like heading out on the water […]

You Should Be ‘Gone Fishin’

    Hey there Savages! The sun is shining and it’s a great time to get out there and pull some fish out of the water. Is there anything more satisfying than a day on the water and defining the term ‘fresh’? Not much, it’s akin to growing your own vegetables in that sense of […]

Twin Lakes: The Experience.

  Morning Savages! As I mentioned in a past article, I recently backpacked up to the Twin Lakes in the Sequoia Wilderness. I don’t think I need to say much to sell this other than this is the Sierras, and it doesn’t get too much better in the way of majestic mountain landscapes. The Sierras […]

Home Away From Home

    Ahhh…the tent. It’s such a simple piece of equipment, yet it can really make or break your trip. When car camping the main concern while tent shopping is the size and ease of assembly. Backpacking…do I even need to say it? Okay fine, it’s weight. Weight is usually the primary issue and people […]

The Steel and The Spark

  We know the more primitive way of fire starting with sticks and minimal material, and I should hope that you know how to use a lighter; what might be new to some of you is the firesteel. Firesteels, fire strikers, ferro rods, or Swedish firesteel are all basically evolved versions of the good ol’ […]
