    Being outside is painful and hard.
    Some gear compounds the pain tenfold by being shit, like bad shoes causing blisters, tents leaking when you are already cold, the head tube being the wrong length causing inflammation in your elbows or any other god damn thing.
    You should be good at embracing pain to excel at outdoors but in your very nature you seek to minimize pain by obsessing about ways to avoid it.
    Sure, if have not even been outside, there is little point in obsessing.

      Going outside = embracing pain

        I kind of agree with OP. Just go outside. But also, lighter gear means you can carry it farther, better boots mean you won't get blisters as soon, all that stuff. Just cause going outside means embracing some pain and discomfort doesn't mean you have to be miserable

    This was one of Ted's worst takes. I agree with him on a decent few aspects (for the feds, that doesn't include blowing people up), but saying everything you do needs to be necessary for survival is moronic. Even primitive people did cave painting, storytelling, music and other enjoyable things.

      yeah sure, the millions of dollars a pro golfer makes is 100% not a "practical motive". Who here could think of a single "practical" thing they could do with tiger woods net worth of $1billion.

      Destroying the planet and all its natural resourves in order to consoom and ~~*earn a living*~~ are not the same as drawing on a cave wall with mud or singing a song using nothing but air.

        not to mention there absolutely are places in Europe that look more or less like this, mini economic zones that pop up around highway exits, just with more roundabouts and European signage

          Kaczinski was one of the few environmentalists to actually practice what he preached though, living minimalistically in a cabin in the woods. Same with Linkola. Most modern environmentalists just tell people to eat bugs and take the bus filled with the violent and homeless while they zoom around the world in private jets.

    Having the right gear is the difference between a good time and a bad time, though. It could even be the difference between life and death.

    Going PrepHole is not like sex or pizza where even if it's bad it's not like BAD bad. A bad time PrepHole can be horrific or even fatal. And what makes the difference is to a large degree your gear.

    Obsess over gear. Make spreadsheets and lists. Spend days reading reviews. Watch YouTube videos on your gear. Consume.

    The concept of life in prison is so effeminate. You don't want to kill them so instead you just leave them in a cage, out of sight out of mind. Historically prison was only for political prisoners and noble hostages, normal people didn't go to prison for very long, you either killed them, exiled them or cut their hand off/threw them in the stockade or something. Prison is one of the worst developments of the so-called civilized world. Ted should've been exiled to some jungle Island to live out his days in the wilderness rather than kept in some concrete block in the desert to waste away from cancer. The Brits unironically had it right by exiling criminals to Australia. Prison abolition is probably the only thing I agree with leftists on.

    True, just go outside, I do it and use almost nothing to be honest, not even a special knife cause it is useless
    when I go out I usualy search for a watterfall or a river to swim and chill and thats it

    no need for boots, no need for special clothes etc etc

    I never go PrepHole in the rain either, it is just dumb ... wait one day or two and then go out instead

    Yeah. National parks are straight up a US invention. Yellowstone was established as a park in 1872 and is the first national park in the world.

    When I first got into going out I was a no-gear. I continued being no-gear out of principle. I finally bit the bullet a couple years ago and got some good quality gear. It's night and day. Don't be a prideful homosexual, just get good equipment so you can focus more on being out and less on your clothing chafing, your shoes not having good traction, your backpack having holes, etc etc.

      I think OP and Ted are talking less about going from a $5 yoga mat to something lighter with better insulation that's in fact a huge upgrade, and more about obsessing over whether you have a Nemo Dickbutt or a Thermarest Cumfart Plus when they're both fine.

      There's literally nothing wrong with buying a sleeping bag because you want to be warmer or go to colder places unless sleeping bag collecting becomes an obsessive hobby and part of your identity. Going PrepHole is more likely to be the surrogate activity than buying fit-for-purpose gear then not thinking about it for a decade.
