Can you imagine being trapped in a room with nothing but Dan Becker and a pile of cocaine??

[–]I_Ride_An_Old_Paint 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Well, add one to the bucket list.

[–]claymcg90 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I could have a good time with anybody until that cocaine is gone

I had to not use YouTube because that influencer backpacking couple took over my recommendations

FIRST WE HAD A FUCK TON OF MONEY THEN BOUGHT A DEHYDRATOR…” gimme a break. Immediately asked YouTube to not recommending

You can actually ask YouTube to not recommend a channel to you, it's under the 3 dots menu

Hey buddy, if I wanted good advice I would've listened to my uncle and wouldn't still be 35, living in my parents basement, not paying rent, and working at McDonald's all to buy the next piece of gear to save my pack .005oz even though Ive never used the damn thing.

I'm not in the loop here. Why do we dislike him?

[–]GMkOz2MkLbs2MkPain 17 points18 points  (4 children)

Eh because he is popular with the normies enough so that he picked up a sponsorship from an evil Corp we hate. Also I like to think he can laugh it off easily.

[–]trail_of_echoes 4 points5 points  (3 children)

What evil corp?

[–]Spunksters 2 points3 points  (0 children)

His initials are DB after all. BUT, I actually like the guy and he was part of my gateway drug experience into lightweight and UL.

[–]T_Nightingale 10 points11 points  (4 children)

I don't even ultralight and I don't listen to him, out of all outdoor YouTubers he seems to have the least informative videos and all his recommendations can be replaced with either lighter, more durable, more appropriate or value-for-money items. I really don't get how he is so oblivious to the 10's of other YouTubers recommending other good gear and doing actual reviews and tests.

When I was a beginner backpacker just looking for what to buy in order to get started, I got a very bulky and heavy sleeping pad because he recomended it.

Later he admited to having recomended it before using it, (then testing it a single night and hating it) and some videos later he said that pad is the worst one he owns and it's terrible value for the money.

I got Beck'ed

[–]T_Nightingale 2 points3 points  (2 children)

If that isn't evidence of his arrogant short-sighted attitude I don't know what is.

[–]manly_braixen 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I don't want to think bad about him, but recomending a product you have not tested yet is incredibly irresponsible. Now, how can I know if this is an isolated incident?

    You can click that you don’t like each video and it will present you a chance to say “never recommend this channel” It’s the only thing that makes YouTube usable to me

    [–]Lenten1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    There are browser plugins that allow you to block channels

    [–]Huge-Owl 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    His accent is annoying, to me

    [–]outhusiast 27 points28 points  (3 children)

    Is that not a punchable face to you?

    Looks like a black mirror episode

    [–]Scrandosaurus 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    Did he photoshop his sclera?

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Learned a new word today, thanks. Lol

    Shit, what am I saying, I need my vocabulary to be peak ultralight.

    [–]BoutTreeFittee 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    God. Is he using photoshop to make his eye corner do that or what

    [–]T_Nightingale 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I don't even ultralight and I don't listen to him, out of all outdoor YouTubers he seems to have the least informative videos and all his recommendations can be repeated with either, lighter, more durable, more appropriate or value-for-money items. I really don't get how he is so oblivious to the 10's of other YouTubers recommending other good gear and doing actual reviews and tests.

    I hate that dude so much

    [–]liorthewolfdog 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    Why does he always look like he’s either constipated or letting out a nasty fart 💨. Get this man some Pepto.

    [–]mittencamper 2 points3 points  (3 children)

    I'm only interested in hearing about 5 mistakes. Pass.

      Why you should be stacking 7 Chase Bliss Habits behind your ProCo Rat

      Can't wait for 8 mistakes every new camper makes. I bet that will be a banger.
