Get Lost

Vintage hiking backpacks have been topping my eBay search terms lately. Not sure why. I don't hike. I mean, Runyon Canyon every now and then, but not in the necessitating a pack sense of the word anyway. You're more likely to run into "that guy from that one TV show" at Runyon than you are a bear, or stream... or trees for that matter. Although, one time I did see a guy with a full blown, framed-pack walking down the paved part of Runyon. I also once saw some dude RUNNING UP the canyon with a 100lb punching bag over his shoulder with a small guy running backwards in front of him yelling obscenities thus motivating the dude with the bag to go "faster," "harder" and "stronger." LA's weird sometimes.
