    I spent 2 weeks backpacking/canoeing in pristine Canadian wilderness once....it was a watershed moment. I'm thinking maybe you mean like the hepcat bumming around hostel type thing, though. I've never had the confidence to do something like that, though I'd have loved to. And frankly these days, I'm not too comfortable outside the US, except maybe Canada and parts of Europe. I'm just not into being kidnapped and tortured/raped/murdered, but then again I'm kind of a fuddy-duddy like that....

    Yeah, I kinda meant that. A couple of my friends went to Thailand, Australia and New Zealand and shit. They all came back with a ton of good stories.

    [h=1]Six held after rape of Swiss camper in India[/h]

    Monday 18 March 2013
    SIX men have been arrested over the gang-rape of a Swiss woman who was camping in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.

    It is the latest high-profile rape case to rock the country, coming only three months after a 23-year-old was brutally gang-raped by a group of men in Delhi.
    The woman, said to be aged 39, was camping overnight with her husband at a village in the Datia district on Friday during a cycling trip when they were attacked by a group of men.

    I back packed across a couple of islands in my youth. I wouldn't do it now. I like plumbing and fresh linens.
