I knew a guy who talked like that. It took me several weeks to realize that he was amazingly smart. This guy does a lot of things right, and he's very good at explaining what he's doing. It's just a partial solution to what may, in fact, be a real problem for some. I remember stringing a tarp over a campfire to cook supper once and needing to step out into the rain every now and then to get a breath of fresh air.
This guy doesn't seem to worry about pack weight much, but maybe he's better at leaving things he doesn't need at home than most of us.
