It's time for an Adventure!

An adventure can start in the backyard with a fire and a group of friends sharing stories. It can also be a journey into the woods or a campground where fire brings warmth, light, and means of survival. Mickwick Adventurers are a group of people that enjoy exploring the natural world from the bush to the backyard. They are stewards of Mother Nature and master fire-makers. Meet our 2023 Pro Team Adventurers!



Region: PNW

The original Sasquatch enthusiast, Beard-O has been with the Mickwick Team since the beginning. He is a United States Army Veteran and an avid backpacker, mountaineer, and marathon runner. He once packed in a bear-proof canister full of bananas, apples, and oranges (weighing over 30 lbs) just a prove a point about proper bear storage in the backcountry to Mr. Mickwick.

Fire-Making Technique: The lean-to method is Beard-O's go to when it comes to making a fire in the woods.

What do you love about the Mickwick®? I love that it is waterproof, even the wick. It makes my life so much easier knowing I have a reliable means of creating a fire even in the worst weather conditions.

We love to Paddle / Trek / Camp / Overland and have been adventuring outdoors in our six years of marriage. They are also the hosts of the  Live Stream show "Backcountry Couples" Check it out here

Fire-Making Technique: Our favorite fire building style is a hybrid of a tepee and log cabin - it ignites easily and sustains the fire longer.

What do you love about the Mickwick®? We love that the Mickwick is compact and lightweight - perfect for backpacking.
