Saturdays first issue of their magazine is looking pretty good with a clean layout and equally pleasing photography. 290 pages and not a single ad- pure content. Pick up a copy from their web shop.

Wandawega Lake Resort

This is the stuff that (my) dreams are made of. Situated in Elkhorn, Wisconsin Wandawega Lake Resort was rumored to have been established as a speakeasy sometime in the late 1920’s and has since come a long way. A variety of accommodations are available ranging from tent campsite, to cabins, and even a tree house. Wandawega has also just launched an online camp store that will also exist as a brick and mortar souvenir shop at the resort. Lastly, their blog A Very Modest Cottage is not to be missed and was an instant bookmark as soon as I found it.

Fishing by Bike

This old Sologne creel bag really peaked my interest when I saw it over at Vintage Bicycle and got me to thinking about how I could get some fishing done by bike this summer, even if only catch and release. I’d be curious if any readers have experience fishing on their bike and what kind of gear might be more preferable over others. Tenkara perhaps? Check out more photos of the creel bag (and bike) here.

Mess Kit

There is backpacker food, and then there is food made while backpacking. Photographs by Yusuke Kurosawa found on his blog Ridge which is a nice place to see where he’s been and the gear he’s using as well as read some jumbled translations if your browser is capable to do so.

Hütte Magazine


I don’t exactly recall I how found this magazine, but I like it. After a little digging (a post on Ridge) I found out that it’s aimed at a female audience, that much is unclear from these spreads though. From what I can tell it seems a little less fashion driven than other Japanese outdoor magazines like Go Out but not by much. The major difference between Hütte, German for cabin, and Go Out seems to be that Hütte is less mountain street style and more mountain style on the mountain. Either way, the photography is very nice- that’s Kasane Nogawa on the cover issue 3 pictured at the top. Perhaps the writing is good too, but I can’t read Japanese. See some more sample spreads here.
