24 hours ALONE. The Haven Challenge

By Derek Tillotson on February 08, 2021

What’s the longest you have ever been alone?

I recently read the book Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel where he tells the true story of Christopher Knight, a hermit. Christopher spent 27 years alone in a forest in Maine. The book goes into detail on historical nomads and what drove them to leave society... It’s all very interesting.

Michael then ask the questions, what the longest you’ve been alone? And better yet, alone in nature?

Haven Tent Ski Trip

Reflecting on this, I realized that an overnight campout with my dog a few years ago was the longest I had ever been “alone”. But my dog was there… so did it really count? Not wanting to be disqualified on a technicality, I decided to spend 24 hours by myself.

I snowmobiled and ski toured into a new part of the Uinta mountains in Utah. Made some good turns and made a great camp. Here is another adventure with Haven Tents.

“Modern life seems set up so that we can avoid loneliness at all costs, but maybe it's worthwhile to face it occasionally. The further we push aloneness away, the less we are able to cope with it, and the more terrifying it gets.”

—Michael Finkel

저는 한국 사람입니다.
영상 잘 봤습니다.

Haven 제품을 보고 이거다 싶어 여기저기 자료를 보고 있습니다.

한국은 지금 겨울로 접어 들고 있습니다.

겨울때는 텐트가 많이 추울것으로 생각 합니다만..

겨울을 제외한 3계절에 쓰기 좋겠지요.?
