I dont know about this thread.. the last outdoor enthusiast cult I was in was pretty hardcore..
So...very little to no actual outdoors skills. See if you can answer the following questions that are the basics of several varied outdoor sports without the assistance of Google:
When is a V-thread used?
How many calories a day will the average person burn when hiking 40 miles per day, assuming reasonable terrain/weather?
What is the optimum distance to build up to in training runs before a marathon?
In what sport is an eskimo roll necessary?
How many decompression stops should one make when diving to 120 feet?
What is the most important thing about the first placement when trad climbing?
Should the stronger paddler be in the front or back of the canoe?
What is the advantage of using a back tension release?
What is the difference between .22 short and .22 long?
These are merely simple questions that span a few of the more common outdoor pursuits. Answer them all correctly without using a search engine, and I will respect your degree. Otherwise admit that it is just another feel-good college degree, without a practical application. Sorry, but you may as well understand now that you are not receiving a marketable degree. Things that are fun or easy in college very rarely lead to lucrative jobs.
I mean really Flip, we're in the fkn interwebz age here, "putting someone on the spot" doesn't really work when the next tab in your browser could easily be google.
An outdoor leisure degree sounds pretty dope I'm kinda jealous. NOW TELL ME WHAT A SKI CRAMPON DOES AND THE AVERAGE WEIGHT OF A NORTH AMERICAN GREY SQUIRRELL'S NUTSACK OR YOUR WHOLE DEGREE IS BULLSHIT lol...
