Please consider sharing your adventures and knowledge with other STRAY readers. As a grassroots online magazine and guide to outdoors adventure, we’re looking for high quality articles, photos and videos that either tell a great story, provide useful information or both.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

Trip Reports

Tell it! We love a good outdoors adventure narrative. Even more if its a great story – You were carjacked where? The bear ate what? How did you end up naked?

Remember, STRAY is all about human-powered outdoor adventure, activities like hiking, climbing, paddling, biking, surfing and such. Trip reports can be any combination of text, photographs or video. We’re looking for a good, well-written story or good beta on the place you visited. Ideally, your report should include both.

Photos and Photo Essays

Maybe you just want to contribute some photos from your recent adventure. That’s fine: we can publish a single stunning photo or a gallery of photos. For a single photo, we’ll need a caption. For a gallery, you’ll need to provide captions and a short intro about the photos.

Adventure Guides

Some places draw outdoors enthusiasts like a black holes devour light. STRAY Adventure Guides help people enjoy these places that are exceptional for outdoors adventure.

We’re talking climbing areas, mountain biking spots or maybe a state park that offers opportunities for a range of different activities. While Trip Reports focus on a specific outing to an area, Adventure Guides are all about providing beta for other people who might visit the place.
