My idea of hiking is with a concealed handgun and a nice big knife.

I agree with your type of environmentalism but for some of the hiking crowd, pepper spray for bears is going too far.

And a shovel.

Why anyone would go into the woods or any wilderness area without a weapon is beyond me. A rabid raccoon could show up, or some other vicious type, either animal or human.

During human evolution we lost our speed advantage to all but turtles by traveling on two legs. But we gained the ability to hold and use weapons. Humans are specifically engineered to walk and carry weapons. To do anything else is unnatural.

A bunch of buddies and I do a rafting/camping trip in North Georgia / SC / TN every year. Let’s just say that a guy like this would not want to mess with us.
