If you see a bunch of other people, does it really qualify as being wilderness?
Right there with ya......
Deciding whether I want a T time or not.
I have learned from watching my cat that all mammals go through the same body language when they are about to kill something.
First they/we turn and face their prey.
Then they/we jut our foreheads forwards at the prey and stare at it with our binocular vision gauging the distance to it.
Then we hunch our shoulders and crouch leaning forward.
This is enough to tell any other mammal to get the fokk out of there because they are about to be killed and eaten.
Works the same way in banks against bank robbers.
Yep, not doing it will definitely make it nigh impossible to boost that threshold. LOL
Well the ancient Egyptians invented calendar-ization which they got the idea from the Babylonians from.
Then the Romans changed it a bit.
Then the Catholic Church under Pope Gregory gave us our modern form of it.
"Interested in seeing" and "preferring to see" humans instead of bears are different things.
Yes, well, you go on and be "alpha." I'm sticking with being well informed and giving due respect and caution so as not to have to rely on a beast recognizing me as "alpha."
Uhuh. Where did you find a these predictable animals? If you travel deep enough into the woods to find a few that have never or very rarely encountered mankind they are very different from those who live in national parks and closer to town. I suppose you must have a special place to do your nature walk. As for the OP I am off any day I want to be, I am off Monday and have been off for two weeks except to have a steak luncheon last Friday to work on a few of the old cars, Probably work wed, thur and fri just to get some things cleared out. Maybe four days next week too.
You can see more actual wild animals if there are no other humans around.
Especially if you go into an area that is REAL wilderness where humans never go.
Bears and cats are a lot like people -- generally they keep their distance. If they are on a kill they have made then you need to keep yours too or they will fight you for it.
'Yote's are a lot like dogs -- very curious.
Bobcats are a lot like housecats -- very shy.
For better or worse.
Yes. It's not called "wilderness" because of the quantity of people there at any given time, including while one also is there. It's called "wilderness" if at least 5,000 acres or of sufficient size to make practicable their preservation and use in an unimpaired condition, and if they possess the following characteristics (as identified in the Wilderness Act):
The earth and its community of life are untrammeled by humans, where humans are visitors and do not remain.
The area is undeveloped and retains its primeval character and influence without permanent improvements or human habitation.
The area generally appears to have been affected primarily by the forces of nature, with the imprint of humans' work substantially unnoticeable.
The area is protected and managed so as to preserve its natural conditions.
The area offers outstanding opportunities for solitude or a primitive and unconfined type of recreation.
