The Beartaria Times First Magazine Is Now Available For Pre-Order!

Published

on

We are excited to announce that we are now accepting pre-orders for our first ever Beartaria Times magazine!

We are hoping this first 100 page magazine titled, “Origins – A revealing of legends” will be the beginning of a quarterly magazine series.

In this first issue we brought together community members from different backgrounds and experiences to share origin stories, experience, inspiration, lessons and resources that we believe our community will love and benefit from.

 

The Beartaria Times started as a free community news site that many generously donated to support which helped us launch our community app and it has been a huge success!

Supporting this magazine can help us secure an official editor to curate submissions for our website to continually and consistently share valuable articles as well as highlight businesses and entrepreneurs for free.

We can barely wait to share what we have planned for 2022 and this magazine can greatly help us get there.

We love being able to give a voice to legends and legends in the making, as well as offering a community app where a well intended community can come together to thrive!

 

Our community app is an amazing piece of tech and we greatly appreciate all the hard work done by those that made it possible. The community that comes together and gives their best to share and support the good, the true and the beautiful things in life is what makes our app so enjoyable and valuable to us all.

Thank you to everyone that has contributed to this magazine as it could not have been done without you, your amazing stories and lessons!

A special thank you to Copper Bear, Camera Bear and Nero Digital Design for driving this magazine forward and getting so many great people involved.

We are thrilled we are able to offer this magazine and are excited to share what’s next,

The future is bright for The Legends of Beartaria!

Until next time, Keep Crushing!

Onward!

Sincerely,

– The Beartaria Times

Early this week our magazine team released information on the third issue of our magazine. As our magazine content is sourced from our community to share information, stories and resources, our team also made a call for anyone that wants to participate in the third issue of our magazine.

To be the first to hear from our magazine team make sure to follow @Magazine Team on

The Beartaria Times App (App.BeartariaTimes.com)

You will find their post below,

“Hey Legends,

As we finish sending out our second magazine, we are starting to plan our third issue.

We have learned a great deal with the first two and continue to progress, adapt, and recalibrate as we move forward.

We are still striving for most of the content to be resource-based, with tutorials, how-tos, and instructional articles. Beartaria Times has always been at its core, where we can learn from and support each other in various endeavors. Sharing information and talents in our diverse fields of expertise can be just what someone needs to gain the confidence to get started themself or take things to the next level.

The next issue will be called “The Fruits of our Labor.” This theme continues to grow from our first two, “Origins” and “Planting Seeds.”

We covered where we started and what we have done to get to where we are. Now it is time to share some of the accomplishments and bounties we are beginning to reap from planting those seeds.

Are you harvesting the fruits from the work you put into your physical and metaphorical gardens? Did you build relationships locally to strengthen your local tribe and grow your wealth of community? Have the skills you have learned recently or not so recently paid off in ways you can share to inspire others?

Comment below if you want to be involved, what you want to write, or what you want to see in this next issue. We would love to see content that is resource based that also tells a personal story of perseverance and triumph. We are always open to new ideas. Let’s get the discussion on our third issue started.

*Featured image is a place holder for our next cover not yet released.*”

We are so happy to see people enjoying our magazine and sharing it with others. If you would like to contribute, the best way is to reach out to @Magazine Team on our community app. Showcasing your skills, knowledge and experience on our app is a great way to get noticed. Let us know what you would like to see in our third issue and we will do our best to make it happen!

Until next times,

Keep crushing!

Sincerely,

-The Beartaria Times

What to Expect in Our Second Issue of the Beartaria Times Magazine

Published

on

We are excited to announce the second issue of The Beartaria Times magazine! This second installment brings together community members from different backgrounds and experiences to share tutorials, knowledge, inspiration, and resources that we know our community will love and benefit from for years to come. We have compiled articles from the legends of Beartaria to build a catalog of information that will inform and inspire.

Some of the topics you can expect in this issue will include an intro to HAM Radio from the one and only Falcor. Mr. Permie Bear runs down ten ways to incorporate permaculture philosophy in your garden or homestead. The seeds of creation are sown in a piece by BearBrandt that takes you through the artistic design process. And Artos Survival’s, WildMedBear gives us ten Wilderness Survival Essentials.

This issue includes an article from Amy on Scratch Made Ravioli

Big Sage Bear and Bolar Bear give us some insight into planting metaphorical seeds in their lives. While Orthodox Builder Bear lends some wisdom on how we can all benefit from continuing to do business with Babylon. And there is so much more!

Like before, this magazine will be a limited run based on the pre-order numbers. We are happy to have lowered our pre-order cost to $24 per magazine, and we reduced the Canada shipping cost to $9 instead of $15. For total transparency in sharing our goals, some magazines of similar physical quality sell for $12-$15 but print millions of copies. We believe we can begin to get our price more competitive if we sell around 10,000 copies. By supporting our magazine and pre-orders, you help us continue to lower the cost. We would rather sell many magazines at a low price and get good information out there!

We want to thank all of our contributors for making this another fantastic issue!

You can still pre-order a copy before Friday, April 29, at 9 pm PST.

The future is bright for The Legends of Beartaria!

Until next time, Keep Crushing!

Onward!

Sincerely,

– The Beartaria Times

The Béara Clann – Irish Bears July Camp Trip

Published

on

Our Story Begins

The following is an account of twenty-three legends that assembled at a campground in the Beara Peninsula of County Kerry, Ireland, in the first weekend of July 2021.  This is the story of the first Béara Clann camp trip.

Our story begins on Thursday, the first of July.  Kingdom Bear and his wife, Kerry Moma Bear, arrived at the campground to claim our corner of the camp.  Kingdom Bear, an avid camper, is also a veteran of the printing industry.  He brought with him a few surprises he’d made for the group, including a Béara Clann banner and flag.  With banner and flag in place, Kingdom Bear was ready to welcome the other members they arrived.

 

Béara Clann Assemble

Friday morning, members of the Béara Clann, the Irish Unbearables, began their journey from all corners of Ireland to the campground in County Kerry.  By the afternoon, most of the group had made their appearance.

Upon arriving, the Clansfolk were warmly greeted by the Béara banner and flag marking our little settlement.  There, we found a fire pit surrounded by tents on all sides.  Next to that, a small building for shelter from rain.

Kingdom Bear and Óbéara Bear welcomed the Friday arrivals with smiles and open arms.  Everyone joined in to help each other build their tents.  After setting up and a quick trip to a nearby village to stock up on food and supplies, everyone was settled in for the evening.

It was like old friends having a reunion, though this was the first time many of us were meeting in the real physical world that exists beyond the borders of the digital realm.  Handshakes, hugs, smiles and stories being shared were in abundance.

It was time to build a fire before nightfall.  A few bears spotted a huge broken tree limb and with teamwork, removed it from the tree with bare hands.  Then they began to break it down to smaller pieces using various saws and axes.  Everyone participated in a group effort.  As one got tired, another bear stepped up and continued the sawing.  This was also a great opportunity to teach the younger generation how to chop wood.  The Paddy Glassman Bear instructed Green Bear’s sons, Strummer Bear and Pickle Bear, how to chop up some firewood.

The positive vibes continued into the evening hours, as members gathered round the fire to tell stories, crack jokes and share their various interesting theories about this realm we call Earth.

 

The Fellowship of the Clann

Saturday morning saw the arrival of several more members, completing our gathering of these Irish Beartarians.

That afternoon, several members embarked on a journey to hike to a hilltop where an ancient stone circle stands.  The group admired the elevated view while contemplating what the ancient people of this land had known to construct such a site.  After visiting this ancient place, some of the braver ones took a dip in the chilly waters of a nearby lake.

Once everyone was back at camp, the Béara Clann’s Minister of Enthusiasm, Brayvy Bear, presented each of the children in the group with a gift bag.  The amazing Kingdom Bear and Kerry Moma Bear put together these lovely gift bags that included things like crayons, coloring book, bubbles and toys.  The Béara Clann children were most pleased.

It was steadily raining that evening, so we all gathered under that nearby shelter for a dinnertime BBQ.  Spirits were high as we shared stories and crafted jokes.  There was an abundance of good cheer.

After dinner, Brayvy Bear presented all of the adults with a souvenir Béara Clann mug that he and Kingdom Bear had made for the group members.  To mark the occasion, Brayvy Bear also presented to the group a bottle of locally crafted Beara Irish Whiskey, pouring a little into each mug and proposing a toast to the Clann.

The “craic”, as the Irish call it (stories, jokes and laughs), continued into the late night hours.

 

Making Our Own

Sunday morning, the group screen printed t-shirts with the Béara Clann logo.  Each member had brought with them the shirts they wanted printed.  Kingdom Bear set up a station in the shelter area to do the printing.  As mentioned earlier, he’s a veteran of the printing industry, so he volunteered to man the screen printing station.  Brayvy Bear, always eager to help, stepped up to assist him.  The end result was beautiful, each member going home with a freshly printed Béara souvenir t-shirt.

After printing t-shirts, Poppa J Bear hosted a livestream for Instagram.  The stream included a tour of the camp site and short interviews with several of the folk.  It was a great way to capture and showcase the energy of the trip.

Next, everyone gathered in front of the shelter for a group photo.  ConspiraBee Bear, an avid photographer who had been photographing the entire weekend of events captured the group photo of us.

 

Further Exploration

Some members packed up to head home after the group photo.  The remaining members embarked on an expedition to see a famous secluded waterfall and lake not far from where we were situated.

The scenery at this location was epic, like something you would see on a postcard.  Passing through fields of sheep, you encounter the waterfall.  After a few photos were taken there, we proceeded to trek up the steep trail towards the lake.  At the lake, several in the party decided to again take a dip in the water.  The Buzz Wrecker Bear, Rua Bear, The Paddy Glassman Bear, Eire Bear and Defender Bear’s girlfriend all went for a swim, those brave souls.

Once back at camp, the men set up a friendly axe throwing competition.  Logs were stacked for a target and the each man took turns throwing the axe.  Much fun was had, so much so that axe throwing will be a featured event at all future camp trips.

 

Onward to Béara!

That night, as the rain had ended, we all gathered round the fire again.  Future plans were discussed, including another camping trip, as well as the proposed formation of the Beartarian Horticultural Society.

The common thread that tied this weekend camp trip together was teamwork and community building.  Each member of the Clann lending a hand to help another.

It was so good to see everyone get along so well, to see our children playing together in nature.  To watch the initially hesitant and wary wives and girlfriends go from polite conversation to genuine warmth and good natured joking, now eager to be a part of this wonderful group.  This is what community building is all about.

The friendships formed, friendships reinforced and memories made at this July camp trip will last a lifetime.  We, the Béara Clann of Irish Unbearables, are a young group, still growing and learning as we go, yet we show much promise of big things to come in the future!

On Monday morning, it was decided that we would all meet here again for the second weekend of August.

To be continued…
