About Ripley LaCross

EmailTwitterInstagramWebsite

Hello! My name's Ripley LaCross and I'm a wilderness backpacking Adventure Cartoonist!

Please help me to make more comics! By becoming a patron, you’ll help offset the business and living costs of being an independent creator. That means more comics for you! 
Making comics about my experiences is a way of encouraging others to step outside of their comfort zone and have an adventure of their own. My comics are deeply personal, inviting readers into my head to see what I see and feel how I feel. It's a way for me to express myself in ways that words alone cannot. 



Your contributions will also help make my adventure comics possible! With your support, I can take fewer freelance jobs and focus on my own projects.

Read some of my comics!


 

 

 

Goals
$118.62 of $500 per month

Being in the wilderness means being far away from modern conveniences like Wi-Fi, escalators, and microwaves. But what it also means is being at the mercy of Mother Nature while also far away from any kind of medical services. Common injuries in the backcountry include trips, falls, stings, bites, hypothermia, heat exhaustion, altitude sickness, lightning strikes, etc, etc, etc. 

Reaching this Patreon goal would allow me to participate in a NOLS Wilderness First Aid course and becoming a valuable asset in the outdoors. Not only would I be able to take care of myself in an emergency situation but I would also be an asset to other hikers and backpackers in similar situations. Maintaining this goal would allow me to retake this course every few years to keep my skills sharp.
