   It's difficult out in the wild for a bro with nothing but a cheese knife, blowtorch, French press, gin, tonic water, axe to throw at logs and a little nylon island all to himself

If one of you talented types could intercut this video with footage from Grizzly Man, I'd be much obliged.

Subby here. You owe it to yourselves to watch the unedited version of the video on Vimeo. I couldn't decide whether to laugh or facepalm. Also, I can't tell whether this is parody or real. Too much time in the Politics Tab has got me seeing Poe's Law everywhere.

I read the article and thought it was excessively cynical; a respect and appreciation for nature is always a good thing, and if it takes a cheesy hipster-targeted "wilderness expedition" to achieve that, then, I guess that's ok.

Then I watched the video. Yeah, I stand corrected.

ugh, I don't know how to convey how I feel about this. It's like he's so farking proud he's the first one to figure out camping, and he's not even doing it right. It's like a spoiled little shiat telling a grizzled oil worker how he had a really tough day mowing the lawn but now he know what really hard work is about.

I couldn't tell either, but I am leaning toward's real, but you're right, maybe we are all getting trolled. I hope.

I know "JO" probably means something very New Agey but I immediately parsed it as "jerk off".

Manhood Camping Firequest. Lookin' for a 100% for real bros to share/experience manhood in all its glory. This is for real, I don't want to waste my time or yours. 100% JO and manhood, no sugar added. I AM NOT GAY. Don't even think this is a sex thing, it's all about manhood.

Looking for bros to head into the woods and bond by fire, experience life as men once lived it, JO circle, and fire/vision quests.

See, I know it's de rigeur to make gay jokes, but the whole group, setup and video were so bloodless I just can't see any of them indulging in homosex or any other similar activity. Things like that would mess up their artisanal stubble and matching chukka boots and might keep those rosemary-marinated prawns from going down properly.

DWTFV, but we eat like kings when we're camping.  There's nothing better than eating first class in inhospitable conditions.  And it's a treat to be able to pull out the iPad and catch that football game when you're fireside.  It's akin to Amish with internet.

/judge me all you want, I got this shiat dialled in

I read the Farkline and thought "WTF am I reading."

So I middle-clicked the link to open it in a new tab, but I forgot about it.

About thirty minutes later I noticed the tab and started reading. My reaction was "WTF am I reading."

I closed the tab, thinking I had misclicked somewhere.

Then I came back to Fark and I noticed the Farkline and thought "WTF am I reading."

It's an awful cycle.

I grew up in the middle of nowhere on a dirt road with the only sign of other people being a light at a farm that was a few miles away. Spending all day outside and then walking in to a warm bed, hot water, and a well stocked fridge and pantry was nice. I love nature, but I've never felt an urge to go camping or do whatever it is that this video is about. That's not a knock against camping. Plenty of my friends who grew up in a very similar way love to camp. I just don't feel like I need the uncomfortable nights to complete my experience and I don't feel like I'm missing whatever the guys in that video apparently found.

Also, when I go back there, I don't put away my phone to get rid of the distraction. I put it away because I can't get a signal. How far away from civilization are these guys going?

Maybe, but having met more than my fair share of 'urban hipster-types' it's believable to me.  Whatever, I laughed.

Actually, the term is "city slickers." We tend to call them flatlanders, tenderfoots, and/or turkeys.

You can find them in every city on this dirtball. Texas has quite a few, as I recall. Seen 'em all over Houston and Austin, like ants scurrying around. New York City is chock full of them too.
