I'm sure this costs them a pretty penny to make...If you look at the other posts, they show some Videos of "The Making of This is Backcountry" Those shots weren't in Monument Valley, they were in Moab....Jim_H wrote:unless they pay the tribe a very large sum of money to film there
It's not all about strenous...It's about Adrenalin...And Backcountry... And being in Tune with Nature....And River/Creek Fishing is not at all slow and passive...Surely you've waded Creeks and Rivers...Try doing that all day, keeping your footing, and not "spooking" the Fish....When you hook into a Big Fish , your heart just about stops....And then, to Fight it and Land it like the Guy did in the Video...It might have taken him 10 - 15 Minutes or more to bring that Fish in and it's a Challenge...It's a frickin' awesome feeling....I could totally relate to that guy's exhilaration.....Jim_H wrote:and since when has something as slow and passive as fishing been equal to 80 degree slope skiing, high couloir snow climbing, 5.10 rock climbing, or even road biking, which is far more strenuous even if not in the backcountry.
You should probably go fishing sometime before making that comment. And no, dropping a bobber off the dock at camp isn't fishing.Jim_H wrote:something as slow and passive as fishing
Yeah anyone can fall off a mountain on a board, but fishing takes finesse.Outdoor Lover wrote:taken him 10 - 15 Minutes or more to bring that Fish in and it's a Challenge...It's a frickin' awesome feeling....I could totally relate to that guy's exhilaration.....
I am not too interested in extreme sports, although I absolutely LOVE Danny MacAskill's mountain bike videos, they are more like watching ballet.Jim_H wrote:Ah yes, the fishing crowd.
Maybe because the thrill seekers break more stuff than us run-of-the-mill hikers and Backcountry.com wants to sell them tons of replacement stuff??azbackpackr wrote:this is very different from what is being promoted in this ad
