Annoying people in the outdoors

Some People Seem to be Camping for Different Reasons

It used to be that you spend your free time outdoors for a short list of pleasant reasons:

  • Fishing,
  • Relaxing around a campfire,
  • Killing animals,
  • Watching animals (then, possibly, killing them and eating them),
  • Exercising without the constant noise and air pollution of the city,
  • and, if you’re a psychopath or John Rambo, running from the police and making traps out of ferns and tree branches.

But technology has changed camping and hunting. These days you’ll find people who don’t actually seem interested in the regular activities, and just do something weird like look at their phone in front of the fire or try to drive a hybrid up a mountain trail. For the most part these people are harmless. Sometimes annoying, but mostly just confusing.

Hikers with Ski Poles

Ski poles have their place. When you’re skiing. On the snow. We’re a little confused as to their purpose on a dry dirt trail, but there’s a growing interest in people determined to make hiking as ridiculous as possible. For some reason they think flailing around two sticks is going to make their hike feel more legitimate. Maybe they think the more accessories they have the better the hike will be. It’s great everyone is getting out and breathing fresh air and all, but those poles really aren’t helping them walk better.

Nothing feels more out of place around a campfire than a planned outfit. Especially tracksuits. If you’re worried about the state of your hair or whether you have matching accessories for your button-up shirt, it’s safe to say you’ve missed the point of camping entirely.

The Cable-Educated Survivalist

Every now and then you come across some kid who wants nothing more than to be the next Bear Grylls. The popularity of survivalist shows all over cable tv has reshaped an age old type of camper who has obtained all of his knowledge of the outdoors from things other people have said. He wants to walk into the forest with nothing more than a giant knife and a piece of string, and believes the best way to stay warm is to sleep naked in a pile of leaves. He isn’t out there to enjoy the outdoors, but to prove to you that he can make it back to his sweat-stained computer chair alive. Keep a close eye on this one.
