Every year we become an increasingly less outdoorsy people, and undestandably so. There isn’t much cause for wilderness survival in the city unless you’ve gotten yourself involved with Occupy Wall Street. We aren’t saying that you should be prepared for a dystopian future, but there is a beauty in being able to separate yourself from modern comforts. Hiking, camping, and enjoying a fire are all part of liberating experience of taking a step away from civilization. If you truly want to get away from it all, not in some manicured resort, but actually put some distance between you and modernity, grab your tent and join the dying breed.
