Feral TrekWe want to try everything once- just to see what happens.
Feral trek is an upstart startup, a travel blog masquerading as gonzo journalism. Think of us as an incorrigible child playing with matches or poking his finger in every pie. We want to try everything once- just to see what happens. Our interests: mountain trails and caves, abandoned beaches, whirlpools, cacti blossoms, Redwood forests, desert canyons, movies and moon bathing, curiosity shops, high end restaurants and dive pubs, ethnic food and family recipes, outsider art, comics, and tattoos, underground manifestos and conspiracy theory, occult symbolism, Old Town coffee shops, street art, and billiard halls, Camp, kitsch and the bizarre, etymology and Twilight language, and all those roadside attractions along the highways of old weird America, like “Casper’s Alligator Farm” and the “Zombie Zula Palace” that you wanted to stop at on family vacations, but didn’t because Dad had to “make time.” Feral Trek is here to provide a forum for those who find domesticity not all it’s cracked up to be. Sometimes you just have to go feral.

achy and mehitabel: an appreciation. An eighth of an inch of dust had settled on the boxes left unopened for thirty or more years, boxes of broken Christmas ornaments, toys, and trophies, boxes of odds and ends, spider-webbed sachets of tax returns, receipts, and...read more
Trinity College, Dublin, by Gypsy. Feral Trek arrived in Dublin, Ireland jet lagged and surly, but we did managed to get to Trinity College to check out the Book of Kells. Absolutely beautiful- if you're in Dublin do not miss it. What I enjoyed most was the small, but...read more

I was headed to Zion to hike the Narrows when it all went south. Sin City sang like a naughty mermaid. 24 hours later… Hell, I'm left here in echoes, points on a map I can't figure out. I woke up from a retro-rave at this seedy nightclub, entirely washed out and hung...read more
