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.
Lulu "The Glamping Goddess"
Lulu became a Mickwick Adventurer in 2019. She started as a customer, and soon became a glamping buff after using our products. She is passionate about health, fitness, and spiritual well-being. She can be found hiking the mountains of the Pacific Northwest or practicing and teaching Yoga. She also enjoys traveling and researching holistic all-natural remedies.
Fire-Making Technique: Lulu enjoys her backyard fireplace. She often uses the Lincoln log technique to start her fires.
What do you love about the Mickwick®? I love that they are made from all-natural ingredients with no harmful chemicals like all others I see in the stores. I am always being asked what my secret is to making a fire at parties, and the fact that I do not have to use tinder or kindling is the bee's knees.
Region: Idaho Native, Freshly Transplanted to Alaska
Hailey is an avid backpacker and angler, so naturally the mountains are her happy place and where she feel the most like herself. She can be found by the rivers and lakes, exploring new trailheads, or deep in the backcountry with her trusty pack. She brings a plethora of knowledge in fishing, survival tactics, and backpacking to the table
Fire-Making Technique: My favorite fire building technique is The lean-to; Nature’s elements are unpredictable, and I have found that this method not only keeps my heat source safe while I’m deep in the backcountry, but also requires less timber than other methods.
What do you love about the Mickwick®? The Mickwick® is practical, yet essential for all of my adventures. I love that they are waterproof, lightweight/compact, and I never have to worry about getting a fire started in the rugged terrain.
