Our correspondent goes to Pierre, SD, to hunt some pheasant.
Boarding a plane to Omaha in early November is a little like setting your own frozen destiny. I’m booking out from California, to the tundra-like lands of the Midwest. The plane lands in a rainstorm. It starts hailing. It’s dark at 4:30PM.
If this is where my dreams of a fulfilling vacation all become manifest, I couldn’t be happier—it’s pheasant season.

Sitting down with Huckberry’s Editor, to hear his picks for the holiday season.
Matthew Ankeny came up the coast of California (by way of Chicago and Seattle). He’s the Editor here at Huckberry, and he curates the Journal and gives brands their due in print.
When he’s not reading an seemingly endless stack of fiction (this week’s pick, Wells Tower’s Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned), he’s probably cycling (or running a marathon). His style reflects a demure admiration of quality, and his picks show how understatement is often the most notable statement.
Why have one treehouse when you can have three?
The tree house. It's got a strong presence in the Zeitgeist these days. It's a long day on the web if we don't stumble on another stunning, for-grown-ups-only tree house. But this one is special. For starters, it’s not one tree house, but three. Plus, as the home of the former Director of Greenpeace, it’s extra-green, and, located outside Atlanta, it has a bit of a Southern flavor to it.
Peter Bahouth, now the Executive Director of the U.S. Climate Action Network, was looking for a bit of privacy, sure—he literally lives in a glass house. He also wanted to recapture some of the magic of his childhood, the wonder and freedom that came from the tree house.
Combining waves and skis, Chuck Patterson is creating an extreme sport all his own.
Many people would likely argue, myself included, that there’s no feeling on earth quite like cutting tracks in fresh powder on a pair of skis. And yet, there are a select few who have the privilege of insisting that, sure, powder skiing is great – but have you tried wave skiing?
Among them is Chuck Patterson, a former pro skier and lifetime surfer who looked for a way to bring together his two worlds—the mountains and the water. The answer came in the form of two custom-built skis, 40-foot Maui waves, and a distinct lack of vertigo.
Our correspondent competes at the World Beard and Moustache Championships.
As you may or may not have heard, the 2013 World Beard and Moustache Championships were recently held over in Leinfelden-Echterdingen—a small town outside of the old city of Stuttgart, Germany.
One of our fold, writer Taylor Welden, was competing in the event, and we asked him to take us on a behind-the-scenes tour. So, he gave us exclusive access to the world championships of competitive facial hair—the biggest and beardiest contest in the world. Here’s Talyor…
Sitting down with Huckberry’s Brand Director, to hear her picks for the holiday season.
*We pull back the curtain, and show you what Huckberry is shopping this holiday season. Also check out Huckberry co-Founder Andy's holiday picks.
Ali Ruhfel comes to the west coast from the lush landscape of Newport, Rhode Island. She’s the Brand Director, and you can credit Huckberry’s impeccably curated offerings to her dedicated oversight.
If Ali’s not in Yosemite, she’s in Tahoe. If she’s not out bouldering, she’s camping in Big Sur. And the gear and goods in our shops are, naturally, an outpouring from her life. She’s got the acumen to outfit us better than we can outfit ourselves, and in everything gear/goods/grooming, she’s the most accurate weathervane in the biz. Here’s her picks for the holiday season.

Undervalued for its artistic capabilities, tape has found a new home on the street.
When you think of street art or street installations, graffiti comes to mind. The art of using spray paint to convey a certain visual (or message) in public spaces has lead to a crack down by law enforcement and unwarranted negativity towards the artist who create it.
And so, reacting against the interference of the cops, street art has taken a new form recently: tape. Removing the destructive features of previous work, this form of art allows the artists to express themselves in a variety of forms and environments. Below is a group of artist whose work will leave you visually inspired by their creations, all made from a few simple rolls of tape.
When Filson meets Jeep, a near perfect 4×4 is born.
You know how we feel about the Filson Brand (it's a little thing called love). Their products epitomize what we cherish about American-made goods, and when we found out that they were now fusing their brand into a Jeep, we knew a good thing just got better.
The offspring of two rugged American icons, the AEV Brute Double Cab Jeep sports the same values that Filson puts into every product. It's tough enough for earth’s most rugged environments, yet stylish enough to get a tip of the hat from any car enthusiast. It's an instant American classic.
