In college I bought a super technical pack because I had been reading up on Outward Bound trips and had convinced myself I was going to go dog sledding on this epic trip. I Googled so much information about dog sledding in preparation. I told my girlfriend that instead of visiting her in boring south Jersey I was gonna get my Iditarod on like a fucking stud. She laughed and was like, “You know you have to poop outside on Outward Bound trips, right?” I’m not gonna lie, the semester ended without me going dog sledding. I didn’t go to south Jersey neither though. I went to Toronto. Because when you pussy out on a dog sledding trip and you need to be alone, you go to Toronto. Oh yeah, buy this DSPTCH ruck from Bodega because I said so.
