It’s one of the pitfalls of writing an outdoor blog that is often centered on travel: you forget that the outdoors doesn’t have to be complicated. You forget that the outdoors wonderful because of its simplicity.
Isn’t that just what western cultures do best? We complicate things like it is our job. Even things that are inherently simple. Even the outdoors.
Do you need a road trip to get outside? Fancy equipment? A big budget?
Newsflash: all that is required for getting outside is, well, going outside.
And thus we have the #BackyardOutside challenge.
