  1. Camping, hiking, and other outdoor activities in the modern age have never been about anything other than the technological domination over nature. For the vast duration of human existence, we have been subservient to nature. Our desires to "return to nature" are currently nothing more than the submission of our new powers over the dominion that once controlled us. There is little beauty in the outdoors, mostly spite.

  2. camp tech is more than just gadgets. technology related to fabrics and other raw materials have taken much greater strides and impacted camping more than just how we charge our phones.

  3. In Europe, a lot of people leave their trailers in the campsite for years and they build around them so you basically get a second home. Just stupid, really.

  4. I actually like the notion of AR. Where you can look at a plant and it will automatically identify it and tell you everything about it. Whether you can eat it, or whether you can weave it into twine, or if the crushed leaves make a good natural mosquito repellent. But at the same time it does seem weird bringing too much tech into a camping trip… I usually draw the line at a good flashlight and a good book.

    With the exception of a GPS in the hands of the camp leader, because… that's just for safety.
