Whiskey Wednesday: The Stone Fence

November 25th, 2015 Tags: , ,

Thanksgiving is AWEsome. Tons of food, all of your friends and family back in town, and perhaps most importantly, it’s an excuse to stock up on lots of Lost Republic to celebrate the occasion (especially for those who are not so thrilled that all of your family will be in the same room together for […]

Include Bourbon in 100% of your Thanksgiving Meal

November 24th, 2015 Tags: , , ,

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and if you’re like us you’re spending the day mentally preparing yourself for all of the cooking that needs to be done in the next 48 hours (unless you’re the guy nobody trusts to prepare any food and your sole responsibility is supplying enough Lost Republic for everyone to […]

Ready for your next weekend adventure pioneers? This weekend, we are taking you to a little seaside town with tons of history, breathtaking views, and the best fresh seafood you’ve ever had – Sausalito, California.

Whiskey Wednesday: The New Black

Don’t be put off by the name Pioneers, this delicious concoction was not inspired by everyone’s guilty pleasure (that is Orange Is The New Black for those of you who haven’t hopped on the Netflix bandwagon yet or haven’t been on the Internet in the past 2 years). Although not much is known about The […]

Trailblazer Tip No.7: Waterproof your backpack with a trash bag liner

November 17th, 2015 Tags: , ,

Not much can ruin a much anticipated camping or backpacking trip other than an unexpected bout of rain. It’s not much fun walking around in soggy shoes and a drenched t-shirt, or dig into backpack to find dry clothes only to find out that every item you’ve packed is equally as rain-soaked. Talk about a party […]

DIY: Whiskey Barrel Candle Holders

For those Californians out there, chances are, El Nino is ruining, or will begin to ruin, a lot of your outdoor weekend plans. (And trust us, we’re not complaining, we love the much-needed rain as much as the next guy.) But for most of us, rainy days usually come with being holed up inside and […]

Apps We Love: Mixology

November 10th, 2015 Tags: , ,

Remember sitting in the library in college cramming for a midterm the next day and the only thing going through your mind was: “Screw this, I’m just going to become a bartender.”? Admit it – the dream of sleeping in until 12PM then spending the rest of the day/night mixing drinks and pouring beers has […]

Trailblazer Tip #6: How to make a lantern

November 10th, 2015 Tags: , ,

Trailblazer Tip No.6: Keep things light next time you’re camping by making a lantern with only a water jug and a headlight   With the recent time change, it’s getting darker earlier and colder faster – but that doesn’t stop Modern Pioneers from enjoying the great outdoors (which is just one of the reasons we […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Whiskey Sour

Cocktails are a funny thing. Like fashion and music, cocktails go through fads. It seems like every few months we hear about the “hottest” new cocktail, give it a try, hate it (most of the time), and never hear about it again. However, there are those few cocktails that are in it for the long-haul […]

November 4th, 2015 Tags: , ,

Alright Pioneers, we’ve been giving a lot of love to Northern California with our travel guides recently – and we’re not apologizing because NorCal is to us what Disneyland is to an 8-year old kid. But today we are going to take things down south to SoCal and introduce you to a little known mountain […]

Trail Blazer Tip No. 5: Sleep Soundly with a Clothes-Filled Pillow Case

November 2nd, 2015 Tags: , , ,

Unless you are groundhog and in hibernation for the rest of the cold season, you understand the struggle of trying to sleep on a camping/backpacking trip. Of course these trips are usually extremely fun and you wouldn’t trade your memories from them for anything else in the world, but no matter how far you’ve hiked […]
