That is what I plan to do if I can't find a route before I arrive.

comment Darwin to Timor by boat
Nope this will be a trip in a couple months. It is supposed to be an all ground trip from Sydney, up to China, across to Russia, then down through Japan to Taiwan. I have almost everything figured out except this part.

comment What clothes should I bring on a backpacking trip
I've had to use my previously worn shirts to dry myself off when I've forgotten a towel... they don't work well and you just feel like you are rubbing the stink back in. Towels are required

comment What clothes should I bring on a backpacking trip
I always bring a belt. I've found they can be a very important tool or medical device (tourniquet or device to put pressure on a bandage). I've used my belt to hang up a space blanket (when I couldn't find lodging in Osaka) or pot (when I had to impromptu camp in the Alps). The trick is to never take it off... you have a perfect belt storage area in your belt loops. If you bring a nice thick solid leather one, you can wear it anywhere and in any condition and have a great tool.

I like quick-dry as well. Saves time hanging up clothes to dry. Generally when I pack around, everything I carry fits in a school-bag.

comment How to travel as a crew member on a ship?
Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I had a couple buddies who hung around their nearest freight port until a barge took them in.

comment Sustainable hunting in South-East Asia
@Kaushik Really any. Birds and large being his favorite though. However, as he says, every different type is a different challenge.

comment China Airlines, safe?
@Ankur Yes, I meant SongShan. Edited to reflect that. And the 'old' airport is in Taipei, while the 'new' airport is outside Taipei in Taoyuan.

comment How could I explore the Rock Islands of Palau?
@Mark Mayo My buddies who have dived there say there is nothing else like it. The shark sanctuary is, reportedly, quite amazing.
