Backcountry Toys

I derive great pleasure from all things that support outdoor fun. Many argue that outdoor technology has diminished the spirit of adventure, makes it too easy – that people take risks they would not have previously considered. However, I believe everyone develops different levels of skill and confidence when it comes to the outdoors, and will inherently either make good decisions or bad ones, which just comes with time and experience. There is an aspect to technology that does tend to lessen perceived anxieties associated with harm or getting off route or lost, for me that does not diminish the adventure in and of itself.
