In the last ten years our national parks have become horribly overcrowded.
Many are not even worth going to anymore.
Why has the popular culture shifted so firmly into outdoorsyness ?
When will it end?

I often hear you guys talk about stealth camping or exploring the forest, away from trails.

How do you do this without getting lost? As I understand even if you pay really close attention and try to go straight, a person always will slightly change direction, which over the course of a few km means you are lost even if you have a map. Is there some method to retaining your bearings so you can know which direction your camp is in or something?

I love camping and hiking and would love to be able to leave the tracks.

There's literally nothing wrong with wool and other natural fibers like waxed canvas.

You guys realize that people back in the day went /out/ way more than we do today, right? And going way, way back (1800s, early 1900s), there weren't even trails in many of the areas you went hiking or hunting yet. And yet they didn't all freeze to death and die from using wool and canvas.

I know you guys are desperate to justify spending $1200 on a plastic coat, and there's nothing wrong with it, but stop shitting on people that still wear wool. I've been hunting in the Rockies longer than most of you faggots have probably been alive and I haven't died yet from wearing leather boots, wool pants, and flannel shirts.

How to not get scared of homeless people when sleeping outdoors. Every noise I hear will disturb me because I think it is a homeless person coming to attack me. I swear I could even smell meth near me last night. I really don't give a shit about lions/tigers/bears, but homeless people freaks me out when I sleep under the stars. How do you protect yourself from the homeless /out/?
