Spent the first six months of last year vagabonding throughout Southeast Asia and Europe. I've been startup living and missing my backpack ever since. Romps around the forests, beaches, and back trails of the US of A are going to have to do just fine for a while. Give me advice for weird things to see on a cross-country and back road trip.
Also, I camped for well over a month in the American wild a while back - only time I've ever not released trout for the next guy/gal to catch 'em. Unsure whether or not that's relevant, but it was awesome.
