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 2020 Adventurers!

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.

Bourbon Bill is a jack of all trades master of none. Practitioner of the old ways. Woodsman, survival, self reliance, Bushcraft, and everything outdoors. He is also a thrower of bladed and pointy objects.

Fire-Making Technique: I cannot choose just one. Each type can depend on the situation; from weather conditions to cooking. So I utilize whichever makes sense at the moment .

What do you love about the Mickwick®? A great fail-safe for all weather conditions. Great addition to any emergency kit or everyday use. From campfires to home fire pits, and even inside the fireplace. The Mickwick has never let me down in getting a fire started quickly, super reliable.
