ABSTRACT
This is an examination of the history of outdoor adventure by the use of generational analysis.1 The importance of generations in American history was brought to the forefront by William Strauss and Neil Howe in their ground breaking work Generations: The History of America's Future, 1584 to 2069. Strauss and Howe suggest that history is a succession of generations, and that each generation belongs to one of four types which repeat sequentially in a fixed pattern. When historical events in outdoor adventure are examined in this same generational context, a similar repetitive pattern also exists. Thus, the possibility exists that generational analysis could be used as a predictor of long range trends.
