Why Backpacking Is Fun

posted by Jason Boyett

I know. I said there’d be no more blog posts this week, but I had to toss this one in just for fun. I took my little digital camera with me on the backpacking trip, and had the inspired idea to record a few quick video segments with it.

This is one of them. It’s late last Friday afternoon, at the end of six hours of uphill hiking, the last two of which have been in the rain. I am wearing an army green poncho. My backpack has a trash bag over it to keep my stuff dry. I am in short sleeves because, up to this point, it has apparently been too much trouble to stop walking, remove the waterproof bag, dig into my backpack, locate a long-sleeve shirt amid all the other stuff, and then pack up again.

Also? It’s 43 degrees outside, according to our thermometer.

Did I mention I was soaking wet, too?

This is one of those videos my wife sees and asks, “Um, tell me again: Why do you like backpacking so much?”

Were you also SSSSSOOOO SSSCARED?!Nice try, Boyett. Next time, try a little more snot in your nose for authenticity.This applies to videos set in the wilderness and at work.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.

However think about if you added some great visuals or video
clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics
and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the
greatest in its field. Amazing blog!

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou
