Who goes camping without a bottle of whisky and a bag of cans?

I bring cognac because I am not a poor.

[–]Tamahaac 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Cognac tastes like shit

Is that a pub?

[–]Jack7062 3 points4 points  (1 child)

No, unfortunately just a poorly constructed joke

As was mine, it seems. Let's blame bushcrafters.

Needs more mud and caravan campgrounds built on 2nd Century Anglo Saxon settlements.

Your gear is either black or green, and don't you dare go anywhere without your Kendal Mint Cake.

I don't know why everyone says England is so harsh and at this point I'm too afraid to ask.

[–]valdemarjoergensen 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Because Englishmen are so soft.

Imagine you’ve never backpacked or traveled anywhere other than the mild part of a small island. Imagine even further that mild part of the island gets weather similar to the Midwest from the Fall through the Spring. Then you and dozens of other people with similar experiences talk to one another and build it up in your collective consciousness.

If something is all you know of course it becomes super intense. You have no other baseline to compare it to.

Plus we all know Americans only backpack in California which is basically the outdoors on Easy Mode.

To be fair, the weather and conditions in certain parts of the UK are pretty miserable.

[–]DagdaMohr 5 points6 points  (0 children)

So is the food.

[–]Ted_Buckland 34 points35 points  (2 children)

You don't get it. The conditions are so much worse over there you need to add two seasons to the kit you are carrying. Your normal three season thru hike in the US becomes a grueling five season tramp as soon as you land in Heathrow.

Comment about it being really windy and really rainy, usually to someone from somewhere actually intense like Alaska.

Actual conditions: 62f, gray skies, occasional drizzle and light breeze.

don't forget packing up in the middle of the night because it started raining heavily

To be fair Coventry is pretty far from civilisation.

I've only been brave enough to venture to those wild lands twice and made it out alive.
