The fact that people go missing wherever I go with my giant backpack is merely a coincidence.

What? You don't love me and my faceless-osity?

Everything I know is a lie.

Like others said sounds like a hikers bag set up or whatever. I had one like 4 years ago when me and my dad decided to do a week of in the wild survival sort of thing. Was pretty much. Pretty much lived through and in that bag for 5 days.

Why? I can't steal your face and eat your heart if we're with other people. I mean....give you presents. Yeah. Presents.

Guess I'd have to stick to presents. I've never baked a cake before. Maybe I'll ask Chef-sensei to teach me.

That seems like it'd be a pain to lug around. i like to be fashionable too, and just go with a purse or a satchel. especially if I'm in another country. but my luggage- which always stays in the hotel- is rather large.

Whenever I travel I pack light (Duffel bag or a small suitcase at most). The only time I bring out my hiking backpack is for when I go camping or on multiple day hikes.

I carry a regular back pack.
Even when I go to theme parks. The main reason is for water and food just in case I get lost and I can't find my car or can't find a place to eat or a place what I want to eat, putting things I purchase in it or obtained for free so I don't have to hold it, I use it to store my glasses when I go on rides, a hand held video game just in case I get bored or have to wait for a friend and I also bring a small towel.

LoL this forum reminded me of Mr. Grimmer, from the Manga "Monster".



To answer your question, yes. I do in fact have a large backpack. I use it whenever I head out to the gym. Jeans, a shirt, boxers, socks, water, sneakers, shampoo, deodorant, a towel, ect- can all be a little too much for my average back pack. It's convenient, but it sucks when you're in a packed train.

That being said, you're more then likely going to find me wearing my old, regular size backpack. Oddly enough, that's the bag that has the compass, & the whistle built on it. Pfft! Go figure.

Since you live in Australia like me I can give you a straight answer.
The reason you see these tourists carrying such large backpacks are because they are staying at a backpackers hostel or a youth hostel. These are generally places where you stay the night in a room with a number of other people with just a bed. You don't have the luxury of unpacking your bags and leaving your things lying around in a hotel room because at these hostels you pay per night. Most of these tourists are not staying in the city for a prolonged period of time and are constantly going on tours away from the capital cities (backpackers hostels and youth hostels usually have a board in them which has a large number of adverts for tours, rentals etc).

That looks so dumb. I see people carrying that shit in times square and it's like, are you planning camp out in the middle of the street? Honestly.

I carry a small bag with me when I travel with food, drinks, money etc. in it and usually leave my suitcase at the accommodation.

Yeah, definitely sounds like a heavy-duty outdoors pack. Tents and sleeping bags and all.

I, for one, would totally want to go hiking/camping if I ever visited Australia. That just sounds awesome. Don't know if I'd walk through Sydney with all that crap, though.


Really? May I ask why? I suppose Australia does have a lot of bushes... but also a lot of poisonous stuff... I'd probably carry snakes anti-venom if i were you... but i'm probably being overly cautious >_>


Australia has a beautiful landscape and a robust natural environment. It'd be cool to explore (safely, of course). I love adventurous stuff like that. But your mileage may vary.

It is ~3 hours from the Appalachian trail to Time Square. If I was a foreigner hiking it and had the time, I would grab a bus or taxi and make the stop in New York. It is two hours from San Diego, Ca for the Pacific Crest Trail (~2 hours from Seattle, WA). The New North Country Trail runs through Toledo, Oh, and around Columbus, Oh.

I have switched recently from a large backpack to a medium camera backpack. Less dumb shopping and more photography.
