Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple. – Dr. Seuss
Backpacking–whether short term or long-term–can be adventurous, exciting, and of course cause for annoyances, which some consider to 'the six questions' every backpacker asks one another (myself included of course). Sometimes, you get so tired of answering these, you wish you could just wear them on your t-shirt, have them tattooed to your face–Mike Tyson style–or sometimes I just give random answers to either avoid LONG drawn out conversations, or just out of my own amusement and entertainment. You may be surprised what tends to be typical, AND, what is often questions that come at number 8, 9, 10 etc. or may never even get asked or easily forgotten–names, where you're from, what you did for a living, etc.
