Whiskey Wednesday: The Stone Fence

November 25th, 2015 Tags: , ,

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 […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Emerald

For this week’s Whiskey Wednesday we’re stealing a page out of all of our Irish Pioneer’s secret concoction book and introducing you to the Irish take on the Manhattan: The Emerald.

Trailblazer Tip No. 2: Be present

September 28th, 2015 Tags: , , ,

Not to get all cheesy, spiritual on you guys but last night’s Super Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse whatchamacallit has us feeling pretty mindful about things today.

Whiskey Wednesday: The Suburban

For this week’s Whiskey Wednesday, we decided to go old school again and fill you in on a drink that dates back to the Roaring Twenties when the Prohibition was in full swing and speakeasies and bootleggers were rolling in cash – the Suburban. So basically, since the Suburban was invented and became popular during […]

September 15th, 2015 Tags: , , , ,

We all know the feeling – your best friend sends you an email or text with a link to an article, video, or picture you “absolutely MUST” read/watch/see “right now” at the most inopportune moment possible. Whether you’re about to walk into an important meeting at work or your significant other is giving you “the […]

September 7th, 2015 Tags: , ,

Whiskey Wednesday: The Manhattan

September 2nd, 2015 Tags: , , ,

Whether you’re a man who loves a good Manhattan, or a woman, you like to keep it cool and classy to say the least (especially on a Wednesday).     Rumors surrounding the creation of the famous cocktail […]

National Bourbon Heritage Month

Celebrating “America’s Native Spirit” This September   At Lost Republic, September is one of our favorite months of the year – partly because the leaves are going to start changing and we can trade in our tired sandals for our favorite autumn boots. But more importantly, September is National Bourbon Heritage Month. And no, this is […]

California Cowboys

How good does this sound? A spring tradition where you spend a weekend with the boys on horseback along the beautiful San Simeon coast of California. Dating back to the 1700’s, it began out of necessity, to round up the cattle and tend the land. Lush green hills & wild flowers converge with the vast […]

Modern Pioneer

Man. Woman.  Young . Old. You. Me. I think it’s fair to say that all of us are Modern Pioneers. Some maybe more than others, but let’s give ourselves that much. By way of definition a Pioneer is “One who ventures into unknown or unclaimed territory” or one who is “leading the way; trailblazing”. As […]
