I remember that article a while back and it reminded my of my early inspirations as a child.
I had many friends and relatives who roughed it much more than us ultralighter's do.
I remember complaining to my uncle when I was cold in my soaked sleeping bag, cowboy camping in the rain. My uncle said "don't let it bother you" and after a while I didn't and slept well many other nights in similar situations.
I remember camping with people who complained all night about their bombproof 4 season dome tent leaking. When I investigated the next morning, I found out that they were complaining about some light condensation dampening their sleeping bags.
They ended up dropping off the trip as they couldn't stand living in those conditions.
I wanted to say "don't let it bother you", but they were so upset it would have just aggravated the situation. Besides, they were too annoying so I was glad to get rid of them.
Anyway, you can overcome most inconveniences by not letting them bother you and in the enjoy the outdoor experience more.
