Looking for possible names, and tips and ideas on what to do next... Generally vehicle life and alternative living thread anyone?

I'm about to diy a backpack and go hitchhikking for some time. Sketching the thing up right now, gotta buy the fabric and make a pack because the ones they sell are too expensive. I'm all ears for suggestions on the design, I don't even know how the commercial ones look inside. Hitchhikking stories would be fun to read too, as it's my first time.
I like the planning stage, but sometimes it takes me too long. I might end up throwing everything in a big sack like I'm carrying xmas presents and head for the road.

Hi back! I didn't know you were a physicist, that's cool. I would study/learn more, just fill it with books. That's what I'd do.
Got any plans for where to travel, or a to-do list?

The topic is a mixture of /diy/ an /cult/, we could take the technicalities and know how to /diy/ and the social/personal parts to /cult/.
