Will it always be the same stick? Then it's probably easier to set up
automatic mounting similar to the procedure described here: 
and in a lot of other places search engines can find for you.

In the directory /dev/disk/ you will find various subdirectories which
will get filled with device files for your stick. Personally I like the 
/dev/disk/by-id/ format most. For example my MP3-Player shows up there


To mount it just use: 

$ mount -t vfat /dev/disk/by-id/usb-Meizu_MiniPlayer_0000000000000 /media/stick

or similar.
