Did you ever wonder if going into the backcountry is a good idea?Apr 2, 2013 at 10:17 am #1972024
It's all true! So much better to stay in the metropolis! ;)Apr 2, 2013 at 10:20 am #1972025

Your apps may not be able to update automatically.
It might rain. Or snow. Or be sunny.
You could stub your toe on a root or rock since many backcountry locations do not have adequate sidewalks installed.Apr 2, 2013 at 2:02 pm #1972083

You might be still be sore when you wake up.

The rain is wet, the snow is cold, and the sun will burn you. You really can't win here.Apr 2, 2013 at 2:55 pm #1972098

Or you might run into the Idster, B.G., Travis, Konrad, or me on the trail–what a fine mess that would be for you. And then there's David, Dean F., Adan, Craig, Mike, Kat, the Link, and maybe even Maia–it's pretty darned dangerous out there, with all those rascals on the loose.Apr 2, 2013 at 3:45 pm #1972113

Earthquakes, boulder avalanches, landslides, flash floods, freezing temperatures, triple-digit temperatures, rabid rodents and mammals, poisonous snakes, poisonous insects and spiders, predatory packs of coyotes, man-eating tarantulas, nasty large biting lizards, no marked trails, probably no water, and GPS failures."Apr 2, 2013 at 4:17 pm #1972121
The real problem is that animals poop everywhere, they have no respect.Apr 2, 2013 at 5:51 pm #1972139

Is it bad that my first thought was "how is this different from San Francisco sidewalks?"
-You can't call out for pizza: clearly a starvation danger.

You might spend more than five minutes alone and thus run the grave risk of attending your own thoughts.Apr 2, 2013 at 8:21 pm #1972202

You will have to actually walk up and down each elevation change due to the total lack of escalators in the wilderness. The few elevators that do exist have been shut down due to federal budget cuts necessitated by Congress's complete inability to pass a budget.
However, the primary reason is that, despite their advertising, Domino's does NOT deliver to wilderness campsites.Apr 2, 2013 at 8:42 pm #1972214
Mosquitoes! Black flies! No-see-ums! Ticks!

Emerging from the backcountry makes society seem that much worse.
