DirtBags Manifesto

In the midst of today’s comfort-seeking society, there is a rare class of people who choose freedom over luxury. These are simple people who find solace in being outside, who would choose a cold night under a sky of millions of stars over a warm house with a big screen TV. These people do not merely recreate outdoors, but need to be in nature, as it is part of them. These people seek their higher power outside of human constructs. They commune with their gods by climbing rocks, skiing mountains, surfing oceans, running rivers, carrying all they need on their backs, and riding their bikes across continents. Society often refers to these people as bums, loafers, or deadbeats. We prefer to affectionately call them dirtbags.
