PrimalCon Lake Tahoe 2013 Registration Now Open!

Back in July, when I announced PrimalCon IV (April 11-14, 2013 in Oxnard, CA), my team and I were absolutely floored to watch the event completely sell out in only nine days. Clearly, PrimalCon has grown from its modest beginnings (33 brave souls came to Oxnard in 2010) to become a centerpiece of the Mark’s […]

In past years, you’ve shared pics of your Primal-stocked fridges, of your breakfasts, lunches, dinners and Primal dishes. You’ve shown your groceries (two years in a row) and your best Grok poses.

Have a Picnic. Win a Cow. The 2012 Grokfeast Challenge.

It’s cow time. US Wellness has long been a favorite meat spot for MDA readers. A few years ago they donated pemmican and the popular 5 gallon bucket of fat. Last year they went whole hog. And by hog, I mean cow. And they’re doing it again this year. US Wellness has generously offered up […]

One of the best parts of all this is that I can give relatively massive amounts of exposure to causes/blogs/authors/thinkers/movements that I […]
