If we replace "bear trip" with "trip with quys", we get "Guy trip....". Do you see women/ladies there? No.
We don't bring them to stag party as well, do we?
There is an exception in case of Ursulas and Goldilocks.
The word "guy" also implies characteristics like: keep the promise, to rely on each other, to believe ourselves, to behave directly, to be genuine and many more.
On bear trips we are focused on people, on the group, which has a common target, although destination of the trip is not the main goal.
Main aim are are the people - guys (adults regardless of age or appearance) - their meeting, pleasant time being together.
- Bears are also cuddly, gentle so there is no reason to not show also these kinds of personality.
Bear (guy) trip has sometimes a little discomfort - muddy or rocky road through the forest,
lunch or snack on between the field in the middle of nowhere and lunch at a not fancy restaurant, walking a few extra kilometers even in the rain...
- On the other hand, bears are able to rob a whole luminous patisserie in some occassions :).
Anyway, if we say the bear (guy) trip - do you feel the vibe? Guys, guys, guys ...
Yeah, and we do not have to even pay much attention to our mouth to say a word that he could offend a lady or a small child.
Bear trip should simply have smell of testosterone ... and sometimes even smell of Wiener Schnitzel for snack. :)
Our family is something that has been assigned to us. We can't choose it.
The pack, unlike the family, is a group of these with whom we share our lives.
As humans, we have the advantage that we can choose our (bear) pack members ourselves and voluntarily.
A member of the pack is then more important to us than a stranger - the one who is not a member of the pack.
So together we are bear family :)
