"Once in a while one encounters those strange legendary creatures who live on rice and fish, sleep in their clothes and a piece of canvas, and who are content with a fishing line, a few flies, a jackknife, a coffee can, and some matches. They would despise such a conglomeration of stuff, but fortunately they have passed far beyond the reach of camping manuals. Others, who in the past have emerged from sporting goods stores staggering under a “complete equipment” suggested by some salesman’s fertile brain, will be struck with horror."
- nothing ever changes! I remember going to the Library years ago when I just started hiking/camping and I found a really old book on camping, a large portion of it was on tarp camping and all the different tarp configurations. I fell in love with the idea, but I figured I wasnt experienced enough and people back then where just more hardy than today. Then I read Jardines book and it gave me the knowledge and confidence to try it! Love reading those old books.
