The Modern-Day Pioneer

 The Modern Day Pioneer

In the days of yore, explorers hit the trails of a then-new American nation outfitted with little beside a pioneering spirit and a coonskin cap.

In the days of, well, now, rugged adventurers may feel free to add a nylon backpack and a big-ass DSLR.

But a couple of centuries on, it’s still the coonskin cap that says “pioneering spirit” to me.
