Alexander Supertramp and The Magic Bus

The McCandless story is well known: how the 24-year-old hiker, born in California, raised in Virginia, abandoned his safe suburban upbringing, donating $24,000 in savings to charity and styling himself Alexander Supertramp, and set off on a two-year hitchhiking journey.

Spring Break Destinations

Congratulations, the holidays are over. You’ve given everyone their gifts, braved winter travels, and put in quality family time. Now do something for yourself by planning an adult spring break you can look forward to while it's still chilly outside. Because really, why should college kids have all the fun?  There are two types of spring breakers: the partiers, and the people who actually want a break. The former will spend the next seven days of their lives in the sun with endless beer bongs, Brazilian bikinis, and exotic nightlife, only to return from their break feeling like they need, well, another break, to recover from the binge drinking escapades and lack of sleep. The latter group will enjoy a...
