Backpacker Magazine – Online Exclusive
Your opinions, photos, feats, and everything else backpackers are talking about this month.
We misidentified this bird on page 32 of our May issue and, fittingly, got chirped at on Twitter:
Hey @BackpackerMag, that bird photo in your latest issue? It’s a summer tanager, not a scarlet tanager!
• @gangrey said exactly what we’re all thinking: "It’s been weeks since I read Brian Mockenhaupt in @BackpackerMag [“X Marks the Spot”; May 2014] and I’m still daydreaming about finding Forrest Fenn’s treasure."
• We might be too late, though: Kevin D. Williams has a line on the loot, but just needs a quick favor: “I know exactly where the ‘X’ is… In exchange for my story, I am only asking for a ride there.”
• Heather Friedli-Ratzlaff wanted to have The Talk: “It’s not me, it’s you... I’m tired of almost every BACKPACKER being basically full of gear reviews.”
BP: We’re heartbroken, but confused. Do you only read the Gear Guide?
• @Burghpunk: @BackpackerMag we need to have a talk about tweeting all of these awesome pics on a Monday morning. This is cruel and unusual punishment.
BP: Guilty as charged!
