I'm glad you had this epiphany :) Outdoors are just fabulous. But this whole idea really goes for life, too. You don't need a lot of fancy shit to be happy and live a great life - but, boy, does the media get us all thinking that. Simple is good. Simple is grand.


Hooray!! I'm so glad you shared this. Yes. You are right about the media and C was right that you don't need all that shit. However, I will say that when it comes to camping the reason for more expensive gear becomes clear. When you shell out for a nice sleeping bag and a nice pad you are a lot more comfortable and happy. We are pretty avid campers and I think there are a few things worth spending big on, basically, just the sleeping bag, the pad and the tent. All that other stuff forget it.
Always good to remember hiking and swimming in a lake/river don't cost a thing!!!

i love this post. i'm planning a big camping trip in CO with my best friend later this summer and the list of things we need to buy never seems to stop growing. (i blame my REI membership.) but you're right, when you think about it, you really don't need much. i agree with the previous commenter--sleeping accommodations are key. i'd also add to that a headlamp, a compass, and a good knife. beyond that, you probably already have everything you need!
