Does he remember shelter halves? Because those who do might appreciate a little convenience now and then.

He is welcome to attend Porcfest while sleeping in a tree, in a bush, under a tree, from a tree, under a car, in a ditch or whatever. Some of them were pretty over the top so he might have a point though :) Still, it seemed pretty timely to post here with Porcfest and Burning Porcupine.

Well, I don't really consider it "camping" when you're doing all that stuff, so I can sympathize with his position.

But who's to say that "camping" is better than living in a canvas-walled hotel...?  They each have their place.

We are not civilized because we are armed; we are armed because we are civilized..

Yeah, I basically told him as much. And I agree! I think some of these things are awesome! :) We (wife and I) plan on doing a couple of them going forward.

There's camping and then there's camping, amirite?

Yeah, I was in the military so I get the idea behind the minimalist / hardcore camping. (Wilderness survival really)

The problem is most people aren't or weren't in the military and never had that kind of experience / tough going in their lives, so they don't care or want to do those things to be considered "hardcore" - they just want to camp and have a good time. Which is also okay, the purpose of "camping" at PorcFest and when most people do it for enjoyment is not to train for the SHTF / apocalyptic scenarios, it's just to have a good time. :) lol

Maybe that's 1 of the purposes of the Bardo Farm Fest, though?

Activities included how to kill pig, how to cut pig, how to raise rabbit, how to kill rabbit, how to tan rabbit, how to feed farm animals, how to gather maple sap, how to make maple syrup, how to build a cabin, how to hook up solar panels, how to chop down a tree, self defense, shooting, 1st aid. Best of all, it rained most of the time so people got to learn how to live in the mud.

It's great that New Hampshire has so many awesome annual events!

Yes! I love it. I'll have to go visit Bardo sometime, I need to learn how to do a lot of those things. :)

Great list, but #3 - "Glowing Mountain Dew" is an old hoax....  ;)
