I had read this article in a hardcopy of Outdoor Magazine in January 2016 and I started to post about this in the forum then but never got around to it. But I'm still curious what others think of this article and some of the points in it.
I'm not sure the author really does much more than rant in total, but what interests me is one reference (given as fact) that made me think and reflect:
"ever since that shift in history when people stopped being afraid of the outdoors and began to get mushy about it"
Do you agree in general that this is true? It made me ask myself if I would be as avid an outdoors lover if I lived in a different era and level of wilderness.
