The Explorer's Grants Winners

The trips are in, their merits weighed, and three adventurers are ready to explore.



A month back, we announced adventure: The Huckberry Explorer’s Grants. We wanted to help get you out there—wandering, exploring, traveling, and experiencing the adventures you dream about. So we partnered with some friends (Topo DesignsPolerNemoPeak DesignGoal Zero) to equip the winners with top-notch gear, and we offered up three $1,000 Explorer's Grants. We opened the contest doors, and the trips poured in.



Hiking the Appalachian. Riding the Great Divide. Rafting India. Biking South America. Rowing the Pacific. An avalanche of ideas crashed on our laps—and we hunkered down, carefully considering each one.



Modern Pioneering

Georgia Pellegrini is the new frontierswoman—rugged, savvy, scrappy and smart.



Take the skills of Martha Stewart, cloak them in the earthiness of Rohan Anderson, then toss them in a field with Jim Shockey, and you’re getting close to the axis where urbanite frontier woman Georgia Pellegrini resides.



Pellegrini hunts her dinner with guns. She makes tables out of tree stumps. And, sometimes when she’s in the mood, she garnishes cakes with rose petals. Her new book, Modern Pioneering, is a guide to everything handy, rustic and delicious. For the lady in your life (or, hell, I find it pretty handy myself), this is your gritty, off-the-grid, pioneering guide.

How to Wax a Shirt

With Otter Wax and a little elbow grease, a DIY wax-canvas shirt is within reach.



Otter Wax is available for sale in our General Store



Waxed-Canvas jackets are element-ready garments—tough and rugged, water-proof, and damn good looking. Offering superior  rain, sleet, snow, and dirt protection, they also bring a unique look and natural wear patterns similar to another one of our burly favorites: selvedge denim. Only problem? They often come with a heavy price tag.



We have a solution—a DIY project that will have you in a waxed-canvas in no time.



The Dan Plan

With 10,000 hours of deliberate practice, can Dan McLaughlin become a pro golfer?



It’s the usual story: guy reaches 30, doubts career, wants something more, quits job, reframes life. Only catch, Dan McLaughlin’s not on some flippant life crisis. He’s on a mission.



A few days back, Dan hit his four year anniversary mark—on April 5th, 2010, he quit his job. Five days later, he started The Dan Plan, his quest to become a PGA Tour golfer (and—equipped with Criquet's polos—dress well doing it). He thought it’d take him four years. He was wrong.



Shelter: WheelHaus

Modern mobile homes better off in the mountains than the (trailer) park.



Wyoming may not be the center of the design universe, but they’re good for a crafty idea now and then. Currently, they’re leading the charge on one important subset of house design: the mobile home.



These turn-key cabins offer 400 sq. feet of pristine, eco-friendly living conditions, top of the line fixtures (Kohler), room for your king-size bed, and cost less than $100K. And, best part—as Foster Huntington likes to say—Home is where you park it.



Japanese Manhole Covers

Art hits the streets of Japan, making more of the dreary brick city sidewalks.



Of all the small things American design made beautiful, manhole covers weren't one of them. Sure, there's a quiet, functional simplicity to our home grown covers, but the Japanese—playing their role in the great trans-Pacific cultural dialectic—have manhole covers that put ours to shame.



Painted Japanese manhole covers are more simple than you might think: Sure, the colors pop, but the designs remind one far more of Pennsylvania Dutch hex art or something out of Game of Thrones than an ultra-futuristic, anime-style design…though there's a bit of that, too. 



Women We Love: Françoise Hardy

An icon of the 60’s, Miss Hardy still holds our heart in her hands.



You don’t need to know a lot about Françoise Hardy to know why we love her. The picture above should give you an idea. She is effortlessly beautiful, and equally as talented. Françoise was initially recognized for her voice, but it her beauty, well, that made her an international sensation.



Combining a wallflower’s demeanor, the sultry syntax of a Parisian, and the looks of the girl next door, Hardy’s rise to celebrity was still unexpected. Raised in postwar Paris, Françoise grew up in a broken home. With her parents separated and her father rarely present, she watched her mother struggle to provide food for her siblings and her. Ironically, though, it was a gift from her father eventually spearhead her career.



DIVERSIONS + TUNES: April 11th, 2014

From 83 Must-DO’s to a video from Space this week’s Diversions + Tunes has it all.

Escape the Urban Swamp

NYC is a great place—and a great place to get away from. Kevin Kunstadt explains.



Looking at his work, it’s easy to see that Kevin Kunstadt lives for the grandiose. The NYC-based landscape photographer’s portfolio spans regions of the world where it’s still possible to gain some perspective—the Southwest USA, the Dolomites of Italy, the wilderness of Alaska…the list of expansive landscapes goes on.



Refusing to shy away from massive vistas isn’t exactly an accident for Kunstadt. For those, like him, who grew up in a city environment, the desire to escape is a recurring phenomenon. This peaks during the warmer months, when the urban sprawl of the northeast can best be described as urban swamp.
