When you’re camping and spending time outdoors, it’s nice to bring your creature comforts along with you, if you can manage it. Because if you’re backpacking or hiking far into the wilderness before setting up camp, then bringing extra gear and weight will seem more like a burden than a blessing. I thoroughly enjoy backpacking, but when you’re backpacking in the deep wilds, it can be difficult to carry everything you will need, especially if you’re worried of being caught in a survivalist situation, because you will need a good amount of gear to get through it with the aid of tools. But when I’m simply camping for the fun of it, typically much closer to my car, I focus on a camping style that is known as ‘glamping,’ which means glamorous camping…
What’s one of my favorite items on my gear list? Well, if I’m camping and venturing out into the depths of the great wilderness, then it’s my knife. There’s just something that draws me in. And there are times, quite often I might add, where I have forgotten my knife, and it feels like I’ve forgotten my hand. Because when you’re traveling in the real wilderness, anything can happen, and you have to be ready for that. But one of the things that sets humans apart in the modern age is our ability to adapt, but to adapt to some of Nature’s most trying environments and situations, without the ability to cut, carve, hone, skin, or chop, then the likelihood of survival slims down tremendously. And to me, that’s a scary thought.
