    Must be a really slow news day!! I mean honestly who pays for these "studies"? Did someone go around poking their heads into people's tents to verify what color that person was?
    So since this can lead to a question and it's a pretty slow day for me as well, are "minorities" more at peace in an urban sprawl or do they also enjoy outdoor activities? Me personally, I try and get out into the wilderness as often as I can! I'd go crazy if I couldn't leave the city every once in awhile...

    I have noticed that blacks don't seem to enjoy camping

    A black mans outdoor activity is hanging out at the park looking for a white woman to rape.

    Odd that you seem to notice skin color. I can't say I ever do.

    Camping really is an expensive hobby.

    And if your home life is kind of rough any way, driving hundreds of miles to suffer even worse conditions is not so much fun.

    Only the wealthy who can go back to being comfortable think spending two weeks on hard beds with minimal sanitary conditions is a fun trip. You have to live with that on a daily basis, what is the point?

    Hear Every Voice: NYC and the National Park Service, a documentary by Stephen Ogumah was created in the summer of 2009. This film documents a civic engagement project produced in partnership with Brooklyn College of the City University of New York and Gateway National Recreation Area, a unit of the National Park Service.

    Yep. Sometimes I set up a tent and roast marshmallows with my grandkids before we do the deed. Like my grandfather always said: " A family that camps and rapes together, stays together".:cuckoo:

    I try and get out at least once a month... except for this summer, too fucking hot. Having the peace of mind in a quiet forest is the best way to "unwind" of course that's just my opinion. Btw, I am no where near wealthy, lol!
    I don't know, maybe roughing it makes me appreciate the things I have. Regardless, I recommend everybody getting out to the wilderness once in awhile if for nothing else to marvel at the true beauty that nature has to offer!
