Adventure travel in the outdoors on a tech blog? Hey, we do occasionally use a camera. Whatever, IndefinitelyWild went to some pretty cool places during our first seven months; here's our favorites.
The girlfriend and I spent a week bumming around Maui's bejungled eastern side, sleeping on a secret beach, getting our food from trees and even working on a farm. Hana is the closest thing you'll find to an unspoiled paradise in the United States.
At 20,305 feet, Imja Tse might be a baby by Himalayan standards, but it's still 6,000 feet taller than any peak in the lower 48 states. Chris hiked 185 miles through Nepal to summit it.
Laurel C. Allen visited the Peruvian Amazon for science, creating this four part travel series in the process. Ever wondered how to sharpen blowgun darts on piranha teeth, evade a poo bat or shoot a blow gun?
Justin Moore traveled to the most remote mountain range in North America to hunt this continent's most elusive big game — the Dall Sheep. He got one, but it was a hell of a lot of work to make that happen.
I'm really proud of Chris. A year ago he was a SCAD graduate slaving away at an ad agency here in Los Angeles. Now, he's in the midst of a 6+ month trip, discovering the world outside our borders. The first stop on his trip? This "troll's tongue" hanging 2,300 feet above a fjord in Norway.
This was a personal highlight for me; the trip that helped me rediscover the simple joy of riding motorcycles after my previous business in that space failed. There were more ferries than bears, but when you can see humpback wales from them, who cares?
This was a fun one. Chris, me and a few of our friends decided to paddle kayaks out to a remote campsite on an island off California's coast and teach ourselves to spearfish. I was pretty sure we'd have no luck, but it turned out quite the opposite and we feasted on fish tacos all night.
Iceland's second highest peak. Chris almost made it to the top, then nearly killed himself climbing down. The photos in this one are great.
Thanksgiving was epic this year. 25 of us headed to Big Sur, drove down a dirt road and wilderness camped 3,300 feet above the Pacific. At some point, we met a Native American girl who gave me an LSD feather fan, which is hanging above my bed as I write. We're going to make this an annual tradition, join us.
I figured it was 50/50 that Bear Grylls would either be really cool or an absolute monster. We went camping together in New Mexico's Gila National Forest and it turned out it was the former. Managed to put together a pretty decent interview with him too. That we were hanging out in the gorgeous little box canyon — a secret location where Geronimo was born — made it all the better.
IndefinitelyWild is a new publication about adventure travel in the outdoors, the vehicles and gear that get us there and the people we meet along the way. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram .
In 1998, New Zealand cartoonist Dylan Horrocks wrote a 250-page graphic novel called Hicksville, about a comic book artist and a journalist writing a biography of the artist. The Comics Journal awarded it “Book of the Year.” I loved it (here’s my review). Now, 17 years later, Horrocks has released his second graphic novel, called Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen. Like Hicksville, it’s about comic book artists and the allure of comic books. And also like Hicksville, it, too, is worthy of an award. Read the rest
�EU�An investigation into the massive breach at Sony has focused on a group of at least six individuals that may have worked to compromise the company�EU�s networks, including at least one ex-employee who had the technical background and system knowledge to carry out the attack,�EU� Anthony Freed, senior editor of publications at Norse, said in a blog post.
Norse plans to offer the FBI a full brief on the status of its investigation this week, according to Freed. Where the FBI takes it from there remains to be seen, but Freed noted that his company�EU�s research casts further doubt on the FBI�EU�s assertion that the Sony attack was carried out by state-sponsored actors under the control of North Korea.
Earlier this month, the FBI pointed the finger of blame for the Sony cyberattack directly at North Korea. In collaboration with other U.S. government departments and agencies, the FBI said it had enough evidence to conclude that the Communist nation was responsible for the attack.
The hackers compromised Sony Pictures' computer systems, stole data and intellectual property, and initially caused the movie giant to can its new comic film, "The Interview." The Sony-produced comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, was thought to be the likely cause of the cyberattack. The movie depicts a fictional plot to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Ultimately, Sony released the film online on December 24 and in some U.S. theaters on Christmas day.
