FAQ

Feel free to ask questions/comment in the comments section of any post, which I respond to fairly quickly because I’m hopelessly bored during the week.  You can also use the contact form, but it’ll take longer as I don’t check the email often.

I made up almost all of these lol:

What type of backpacker are you?

Ummm I don’t know, I try to keep my load light but I loathe the “ultralight” label.  Ultralight is code for summer backpacking for rich people/ mathmagicians.  I’m willing to carry extra weight if something functions better or prevents injury/death.  I backpack almost exclusively on weekends and holiday weekends because I have to work (duh).  I’m not a thru hiker.  I backpack 4 seasons.  If I have off more than 4- 5 days I would rather do other types of travel.

How do you get the gear that you review?

I buy it all myself for my own needs.

Why is your blog called .douchepacker. ???

Because you’re more likely to remember that than “Todd’s Adventure Blog” or any of the other shitloads of outdoor blogs out there.  I’m doing you a favor (if you like my blog).

No, really, why is “douche” in the title?  Are you some kind of douchebag?

Douche is French for “shower”.  After a weekend backpacking I really like taking a hot shower.  Having French in your blog title also makes it fancier.

Why are there periods at the beginning and end of .douchepacker. ?

They make it fancier.

Why do you use such bad language?

I write from the heart.  If this bothers you, you’ll have many other boring/bland outdoor blogs to read.  Move along, butt biscuit.

Whats up with the political bullshit?

Whats up with yours?
