Who's up for a hike?

Camping is great. I do it as often as I possibly can. I've camped in rainforests, in the bush, and on beaches. I've camped in sauna-like heat and bone-chilling cold. I've camped for a weekend, and I've camped for months at a time.

The one thing that I've never been able to understand about camping though, as related to the human proclivity to solve problems, is why we still are not able to take a hike (an action that goes hand in hand with camping) in the middle of the night while staying comfortably warm like you would be in your toasty, cold-weather sleeping bag.

How has someone not though about this? It has practically invented itself...


  1. You know....I don't quite know how to feel about this one.

  2. What if you like to hike with a walking stick? WHAT THEN??????

  3. I'm assuming you can thread that stick through one of the legs. And if you break your leg, it would act as a self-contained splint.

    I mean, seriously, this guy thought of EVERYTHING!

  4. He didn't think about looking cool.

  5. New idea? What are you talking about? That thing walked out of primordial sludge eons ago.
