My new favorite song is "Rain rain go away come back another day." Just about everything is wet and stays that way in my back pack. Day after day of rain is freaking annoying. Water heavy pack, everything becomes uncomfortable. Rain every once in awhile isn't so bad but over multiple days really sucks the joy out of this. I suppose it not being cold out though is a bonus.
I think modern man, as in late 20th and now 21st century is pretty wimpy compared to our fore runners. If I had complained like this to some settlers/pioneers a couple of hundred years ago about being rained on they might have whacked me with a stick and made me sleep outside with the dogs.
Think about it, how much time does the average person stay outdoors anymore? Not much. Sure there are exceptions galore but that's the point they are exceptions rather than the average or the rule. Climate controlled buildings, comfy beds, we have it pretty soft these days. In many places in the country you have to have a car to even get around, walking or riding a bike isn't even an option. Maybe more people would go outside and walk around if they were able to. Even at camp sites the majority of people seem to be in motor homes. In conclusion.. people are pretty wimpy these days, so whack your kid with a stick and have them sleep outside with the dogs tonight.. toughen up the next generation.
In getting with the spirit of toughing it out and sucking it up, I will quit bitching.. Nah.. it's to much fun.
