Meanwhile, cities such as Chicago, New York, Houston, and San Francisco have established urban camping programs, often geared toward families or neighborhood youths.

Funny how they didn't like it when these people decided to camp.

Outrageous Muff: DarkSoulNoHope: Yeah, neither did the businessmen who farked with our economy leave it better than the way they found it.

Don't you have a drum circle to get going?

Don't you have a stock portfolio to cream over?

Hipsters, is there anything they can't co-opt without stripping it of all of its meaning so it's nothing more than a hollow shell of an idea that they can then fill with ironicness?

I camped for two weeks just blocks away from bustling downtown Edmonton. There's a little path where 124th street turns ito Jasper avenue, goes down into the valley. Pitched a tent there for two weeks. Charged phone at parks, bathed in legislature wading pool, brushed teeth etc in public bathrooms.

It's ironic that this is a thread full of people hating on other people for not camping authentically.

Sounds pretty hipster.

"It was a time to socialize and look at the stars," says 24-year-old Ariel Abrahams, describing a recent camping trip. He talks about "the rush of the water from the creek, the chirping of birds," and the trees standing close around him.

The hitch? Those natural sights and sounds were only in Abrahams' imagination. His tent was actually pitched atop a Brooklyn warehouse. He's a dumb piece of shiat.

And how do I just KNOW those schmucks probably were all clad in Patagucci and North Face crap?

I think that's called "being homeless".

Meh, big deal.  The residents of San Francisco have been camping for decades.
