Trail Mix Vol. XIV

This week’s Trail Mix is brought to you by Ben Ferencz of the Montana-based FairEnds. It’s been a real time watching Ben and Martin’s company grow over the last few years. And it’s easy to see : I’ve spotted their Camp Caps in just about every city I’ve visited in 2012. Even in the middle […]

Uncle Skullfucker

I’ve had the pleasure of drinking a few beers down in Texas with Daniel Chamberlin, the editor of the now defunct Arthur Magazine. If you’ve been to this rag in the past, you know that CS is a fan of the Grateful Dead, and after getting on the topic the other night at a bar […]

Another Outdoor Retailer show, another long weekend of puffy coats and new friends. And another long flight home with music blaring on the iPhone as I curse the heavens for my inability to sleep on airplanes. It’s been a while since there was any Grateful Dead in these parts. Mostly because it creeps up in […]
