    So my girlfriend and I really wanted to build a cabin this winter but it seems like with the price of land it would be a better idea to get a sailboat.

    Crust Punk

    So I'm trying to get to the bottom of this phenomenon. Why does it exist? What purpose does it serve? Where did it come from and why is it so bad? Haha, basically folks, I'm wondering if people really sit down and listen to crust punk like they would with music. I say that because I don't...

    New Orleans

    So I've heard a lot of bad stuff about cops in New Orleans. Basically that they can do whatever they want because they don't have to answer to anyone.

    "yuppie" tents

    I couldn't find a thread specific to backpacking/hiking tents. I was just wondering how many other travelers use backpacking tents. I know hiking brand backpacks are becoming much more popular and it's easy to see why. They've become a lot cheaper and are much more comfortable than anything the...
