      Very cool article. Would be nice, but I would venture to say that rescue #'s would skyrocket if every naive tourist knew they were only a button push away from a drone delivered sleeping bag and thermos....

          2035: By that time nobody will be hiking anymore due to the "possible dangers" that even hand sanitizer can't fix. They will all be using virtual reality Hiking Simulation Machines. Technology has helped humanity, but has also weakened us. Some things are convenient and safer and some things are worthwhile.

          The only thing this article did for me is made me want to roll down the flank of Haystack in a Zorb.

          "We are now in the mountains and they are in us, kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us. Our flesh and bone tabernacle seems transparent as glass to the beauty about us, as if truly an inseparable part of it, thrilling with the air and trees, streams and rocks, in the waves of the sun, a part of all nature, neither old nor young, sick nor well, but immortal." John Muir from My First Summer in The Sierra
