Muir Summits the High Sierras: Did you know? On October 21st (that’s today!) the legendary naturalist and conservationist John Muir made his first successful summit of the highest peak in the continental U.S., Mount Whitney. He set out by himself from the town of Independence, and climbed into the alpine. There was no wood to build a fire, so he “danced” to keep from freezing. Instead of dancing all night, he decided to begin climbing directly up the east face for warmth in the early morning. He said his “well-seasoned legs enjoyed the 9,000 feet on his direct approach” to the rooftop of the country.

Mac the Knife: Did you know? Television’s most awesome chemist, Angus MacGyver, knew how to do a lot with a little. That’s why the Department of External Services hired him as a top-level secret agent. But he didn’t defuse terrorist bombs and escape countless locked rooms all on his own. Over the years, Macgyver carried various models of both Victorinox and Wenger multi tools. The knife seen in the opening of each episode is a Wenger. In many parts of Europe and Southeast Asia, multi-tools or Swiss Army knives are often referred to and marketed as ‘Macgyver Knives.’

Axe Me Again, For the First Time: Did you know? SOG makes a mean tomahawk. And we’re selling it right now. One of the most obvious benefits to having a tomahawk is throwing it into things. But how? According to artofmanliness.com, you grip the ‘hawk’ as if shaking someone’s hand. Then you swing your throwing arm down by your side. Once the head passes your leg, you swing your arm back up spring-style until the blade is behind your head, at which point you fire your arm forward as if throwing a baseball, making sure to release the hawk when your arm is straight, at which point the hawk will fly from your hand directly into the target because you are awesome at things like this. The final step is the most important: Look at your buddies to make sure that they know that you know that you are more equipped to survive the apocalypse than they are. Then demand the rest of their beef jerky out of principle.

The Ibex Climbeth: Did you know? Natural mountaineers from the day they’re born, Alpine ibex dwell on precipitous ledges between 5,900–10,800 feet in the European Alps. Male Alpine ibex horns grow up to five feet in length, which has long made the animal a target for poachers and big-game hunting European royalty. Hunted nearly to extinction by the early nineteenth century, the Alpine ibex became the face of some of the world’s earliest wildlife conservation efforts. In 1919, Italian king Vittorio Emanuele III donated his royal ibex hunting reserves to the state in order to create Italy’s first national park: the Gran Paradiso National Park. It worked. Today there are over 40,000 Alpine ibex roaming the Alps.
