充足裝備 VS 行山經驗

In HK, habits are of ways of spending for equipment in which expensive tools represent profession, and vice versa.
It's a endless debate. A person's basic instinct is everything. However, it's sad that it's disappearing nowadays, just like common sense.

充足裝備 Vs 行山經驗?
Not sure what you want to know.

有一個住在我區的人名叫Craig Childs,他經常一個人行出沙漠野外1-2個月,只帶一大袋堅果和乾果子,晚上露天睡在沒有帳篷的睡袋,渴時他知道哪裡有水。他出版了3本書:"The Secret Knowledge of Water", "Soul of Nowhere", 和"The Way Out"。我特別推薦是第一和第二本給任何對冒險/行山有興趣的。

Here's an excerpt from "Soul of Nowhere" by Craig Childs:

That's good reading, Sundance. There's something special in Craig's book: how should I put it? Poetic? I am not sure. It's a lot more than that. I thought Craig was some kind of a "minimalist". I was wrong. I think I know why you chose Arizona.
Back to gear. Less is better. Trouble is: so many in this (once) Fragrant Harbour are now so 'addicted' to "gear". To them "gear" is the end rather than the means.
Alas, we can no longer do something like what Craig does over there. It simply is NOT safe any more to roam the hills alone here.

安全 = 訓練 + 經驗 + 裝備

安全不是數學程式，要視乎最弱的一環 – 人的因素…

無名字, Indeed there is something special about Craig's writing. Perhaps it’s his ability to put into words keen observations sharpened by spending weeks in the wilderness. He could not have developed such keen senses if he had spent much of his time looking at his fancy camping gears.
>"gear" is the end rather than the means<
I once knew a professional photographer who gave photography workshops but would not allow students to bring their cameras. He asked them to imagine ‘photographing’ with their eyes WITHOUT using a camera. The purpose was to train their eyes to really see and choose the scenes rather than to fiddle with fancy camera controls. At the end of these workshops, his students’ photographs dramatically improved! This may be a good lesson for hikers. Some of us spend so much time/money on fancy equipment we forget how to experience nature.
>It simply is NOT safe any more to roam the hills alone here.<
It's sad that there are more risks going out in Hong Kong than roaming in the desert. I wonder though whether you have a higher chance of running into I.I. than say stepping on a rattle snake over here. But then rattle snakes won’t chase you either, thanks god!

"I wonder though whether you have a higher chance of running into I.I. than say stepping on a rattle snake over here. But then rattle snakes won’t chase you either, thanks god!"
First, an update on 'Illegal Immigrants'. You need one, I am afraid. People from across the border are now free to come to the Fragrant Harbour on a permit, either as LEGAL immigrants or visitors. ILLEGAL immigrants are now few and far between. The term 'I.I' has served its useful purpose. You know something? These visitors are now all over the place, including the countryside here. One of their favourite pastime (trade?) is to look for trees of value, notably 羅漢松 and 香木, as these sell for good money in their homeland. When they do find some, they'll cut them and bring them home. Another favourite is to ROB. Many here have fallen victim to them IN THE COUNTRYSIDE. Many of these visitors are "minimalists' in the true sense: they sleep in the hills with nothing other than a PE sheet over their heads, and lie in ambush, for days if not weeks, for their 'preys'.
Now to 'chances' of meeting them. In my personal experience, I met (not necessarily face to face) these "visitors" more than I did with snakes!

Thanks for the update, 無名字. From what you said, the idyllic Hong Kong in my memory is long gone. Rattle snakes suddenly don't look very menacing by comparison!

同樣地, 有些人沒有高價裝備, 也會自視為資深行山者的
