Close But No Cigar
So, I guess they TECHNICALLY got the tent "up." But this is not a victory anyone should be proud of, and surely some tent genius eventually took pity on them and helped them out.
Close Encounters with Nature
There's nothing like waking up in the great outdoors and promptly almost being crushed by a tree. This is sure to give these people a newfound appreciation for life and for picking a good camping spot.
What Happened to Bob?
This always happens on a rafting trip. You're trying to work hard and do your part rowing while some slacker decides he'd rather be pulled to his death by the current.
A Sticky Situation
You always hear people talking about the dangerous fauna in the wilderness, but it turns out that the flora can be just as much of a pain. Yet another reason why no one has any business in the desert.
Camping at the Beach
Either this is some sort of newfangled amphibious RV or this guy is seriously lost. Or maybe Poseidon is taking the family out for a weekend vacation.
Shoot for the Moon
The lake can be a really fun outdoor activity, but it gets boring eventually. This kid thought she'd try her luck with the air instead, but something tells me she'll be crashing back down to earth soon.
When Nature Calls
Listen--do you want BBQ and cold beer or not? Because beggars don't get to be choosers in the great outdoors. Just keep telling yourself that they cleaned this thoroughly before using it.
When expanding outward isn't option, you can always go up! Let's just hope that what's gone up stays up--but I'm not counting on it.
Use Your Head
When it comes to surviving in the great outdoors, never pack more than you need--it will just weigh you down. As long as you don't want even a remotely good night's sleep, a head tent is much more "practical".
For the guy, this is the camping experience of a lifetime. For the lion, this is just lunch.
Feel the Wind on Your Face
You may think this is cheating, but you've clearly never camped in the South. I'm just upset I haven't thought of this one before!
An Unbearable Problem
This is why sporting good stores have tents out for display. You don't want to get all the way to the campsite only to realize that your tent is a bit too snug.
Tent or Blanket?
Hey, if then tent is covering you, does it really need to be put up properly? I guess not technically, but a lot less people will laugh at you if you put your tent up right.
What a View
Don't you hate camping with those people who are raring to go at the crack of dawn? If you were really man's best friend, you'd let him sleep in.
A Tight Fit
I'm no horse expert, but I'm pretty sure they need a trailer more than they need a tent. And I bet he didn't even remove his horseshoes, so now the tent is full of dirt.
He may not have made a smart choice, but the man definitely made a choice with this one. Let's hope that bike can make him as happy as she did.
Rollin' on the "River"
So it turns out that "flooding" is just a state of mind. Or at least this guy seems to think so...
When in Doubt, Improvise
We get it--GoPros are expensive. But is this really the best alternative? It's obviously the funniest...but the best?
There's so much wrong with this image, but all I want to do is to yell at them to wash their dirty feet. Someone's gonna die sleeping like this, and that's probably for the best.
What Nature is All About
If you want your kids to really enjoy camping, you're gonna have to drag them out to the literal middle of nowhere. Phone reception is just getting too good these days.
This Baby Has Seen Some Things
After a day or two of camping everyone pretty much starts looking like this baby. He clearly inherited his "looks" from his dad.
What Kind of Butterflies Are These?
Let's hope that they've arranged themselves top to bottom from lightest to heaviest. Actually, no--let's not hope that. They're clearly asking for trouble.
Leave it to a Boy Scout
Sometimes camping gets a little too practical. This kid spent his time thinking about how many hot dogs he could cook at once without ever considering if anyone actually wants to eat a rake dog.
The fail in this one is not so much what these people are doing--they clearly know how to scale a rock face. But rather, the fail is whatever combination of life events that led them to think this was a good idea in the first place.
Burn, Baby, Burn
So someone had the intelligence to build a nice-looking and useful stick hut but not enough intelligence to put it a little further away from the fire? Humans truly are interesting creatures.
Hey, we can laugh at this all we want, but I'm sure there will come a time when all of us will wish we had a portable toilet attached to our vehicles. But until that time comes, laugh away.
An Even Split
Listen, your wellbeing is neither here nor there--what's important is that the cooler stays safe. You can still get drunk with a ripped crotch, but we can't all get drunk with no beer!
You've Got It a Little Backwards...
Okay, so this guy managed to get the gist of hauling a fishing boat, but it's clear he's still a little fuzzy on the finer details of the process. Specifically, the details around what actually goes in the water.
Land, Air, Water--This Boat Does It All
I hope this picture was worth it. Because it's definitely awesome, but your neck and the hull of your boat are about to be really angry with you...
Hey, boats are expensive. So, you can either look longingly at the water from land, or you can improvise. These people clearly chose correctly.
