10-Year Globetrotting Couch-Surfer invents BivyPack



Kenny Flannery has been hitch-hiking, couch-surfing, and (stealthily) camping for the last 10 years.

He doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

How to Travel the World on a Shoestring

Kenny just started. He caught a ride from New York City to Wyoming on a family trip, then a friend bought him a train ticket and he’s never looked back. Whether he’s working seasonally or picking up an oddjob here and there, he says money became easier to come by on the road and he spends way less than when he lived in NYC.

A victim (beneficiary?) of “perpetual wanderlust,” Kenny never stays in one place for long. He camps regularly in state and national parks, typically using a bivy of his own design.

Where to Keep Up with Kenny Online

Most importantly, the Kickstarter is still live! You can support Kenny’s campaign (which is 100%-funded) and get your own BivyPack.
