Realized through a process of digital + manual cutting and pasting, in conjunction with a marginally functional copy machine from 1982, and bound together with dental floss, The Purple Boat Journal carries on the time-honored tradition of homemade magazines. Teamscum affiliates The Nomadic Loiterers sent us this interesting little ditty. We will be posting it in 3 parts over the next few weeks. Here's the cover and first 4 pages - enjoy. >> I suggest clicking the thumbnail to get a good look at it >>". . .we hope this magazine is both entertaining and educational, or at the very least, entertaining."". . .stay away from $5 truckstop showers.

The idea of posting injury photos isn't to exploit gore and/or other people's misfortunes in a Jerry Springer-esque fashion. It's more like singing the blues or going down the road feeling bad in an upbeat sort of way. So this goes out to all the people who do inherently dangerous things to get their kicks. Thanks for your photo submissions, the Tshirts are in the mail."Love to all the injuries," Ian Lateef Cannon."Dislocated on the Bottom Moose Oct 2010.Gotta love it. Surgery needed to repair it," Joe Kadelak."My first 60 foot waterfall, a sudden gush of water in the boils upon landing leading to my upper lip folding up over my face. At least that is what it felt like," Carl Jacks."This photo doesn't look that bad at all, but it's of me after i was pulled off the river after I had dislocated my shoulder on march 13. It has been 23 days and 16 hours since I last paddled. Please give me a reason to keep going on and send me a t-shirt," Bethany Overfield.The next 3 are from Mark Evans, we sent him a hoodie for......

Howdy!This school gig can sometimes be a drag but from time to time it has it's redeeming moments and Spring Break is one of those. No way was I getting stuck in Myrtle Beach with a bunch of drunk college kids trying to get tan for Spring Break. Garrette and I decided to head up to Linville for four days in the high country to kick off the Spring Break. Friday rolled around and I started chomping at the bit to get the fuck out of Asheville. So I skipped out on classes and ran over to plasma joint so I could donate a bottle of Whiskey worth of Plasma. We were treated to lows in 50's and plenty of cool fresh mountain air on top of the Chimneys.The hike went something like this for those familiar with the Linville area. Walked in at the Pitch In trail then up to Babel Tower the next day. Woke up at Babel Tower and crossed the river, hiked up Spence Ridge to Little Table Rock up and over the Chimneys across Table Rock Gap and down Shortoff Mountain so we could sleep next to the river. Woke up crossed the river a......

To the 17 people who may have noticed that the teamscum.com store is down, we apologize. Fact of the matter is, I broke the shit out of my leg and cant print, ship, wheel and/or deal. The x-ray photos pretty much speak for themselves.So what does this have to do with you? If you've got a good injury photo send it in and if we post it on the site I'll send you a free Tshirt. Please email photos to 3scumbags@teamscum.com....

So Ive been a tall mountain biker for 5 or so years. 2 years ago I decided to become the first tall bike freerider.Im always looking for a new spin on old tricks. You know why not be the worlds first tall ice climber?The pitch was 120' of near verticle ice over near Franklin NC. I plan to do it next dressed as bigfoot for a sighting video we plan to do.Its pretty surreal /so-real to step outside the box you have created for yourself, even when that box is different than the box the rest of the world lives in.Do strange shit. It liberates the soul....

photo mike goglin//kayakers mira kodada, jakub sedivyEl Rio Claro is located east of Molina Chile. Molina lies in the heart of chiles wine country and is home to Gato Negro wine as well as great whitewater. There are about one hundred different "rio claros" in Chile so i refer to this one as the Molina Claro. El Rio Claro is one of the most beautiful places i have ever been with some of the best waterfalls any kayaker can dream of. This is a must run on any trip to Chile. There are many runnable sections to the claro but i will stick to the class IV-V upper parts.There are a few distinct sections to the upper claro. From the top down, Veinte Dos Saltos, Cinco Tazas y el Garganta del Diablo, and Siete Tazas. All of these can be run individually or linked together. The river is best in Nov. and Dec. but can be run @ low water later. The water gauge is visual. To get here head east from Molina To Parque Ingles. This is a great place to stay for a few days with your choice of a littel hosteria or camping.Veinto ......
