    Hey, So I just climbed Mount Matterhorn in the Sierras (California, USA). If you haven't read Jack Kerouac but you hang around stp, you should probably check him out. His most popular book On The Road described the life of a traveling bum of the Beat Generation following WWII. In the 40s &...

    My (PROBABLY CRAZY) PCT Attempt

    Long time, no post! I've been kicking it at the Slab City Library for a couple months after my crash-landing in Tucson following my exit from three years of commune life. It's been cool to match some real life faces to screen names on this site, and it has been a decent learning experience for...

    Photos Mountain Paradise

    A couple of weeks ago I headed up to Mt. Glorious with a mate and our furry bud. We've been up there exploring a hell of a lot of times and found some great spots, but this was the best. Our general plan is to find somewhere to park where the scrub isn't too thick and the drop isn't too steep...

    Is the Osprey Aether 70 a good backpack?

    I am looking at a backpack that was top rated on Google: Osprey Aether 70. It looks good, it has a frame and promoted airflow with your back. I think it looks good and I wanted to know what you think of it. Thank you! Osprey Aether 70

    Advice for Coyote Gulch

    In about 3 months, I leave for a six month road trip tour of the western U.S. and Canada. For the most part, I'm content to drive everywhere and do a little light hiking. But there is one place I'd like to see that will require a little more extensive hiking - Coyote Gulch and the Jacob Hamblin...

    Snakes in the wild

    Just wondering how people deal with snakes in the wild. I've encountered a fair few carpet pythons in the bushland near me, they're big (and scary looking) but fairly easy to handle. Personally, I have a little experience with larger, non-venomous snakes like these - as well as cute little...

    Hey folks, long time no see. It's almost been a year since I was last active on StP and I deeply regret that mistake, as the stories and people that come through here are the realest I've ever seen them. Anyway, back in October of 2015 my GF of two years left me and it really fucked me up. We...
