>>650465 Canada and Russia are the best I'd you REALLY want to leave civilization, but I wouldn't say that's the only definition of being /out/.
If I had to pick a country, it would be one that's most diverse. The USA is probably the most diverse country geographically on the planet.
USA has arid desert, high snow covered peaks, vast plains of grasslands, temperate forests, rocky cold coastline, tropical islands, warm Sandy beaches, artic tundra.... a huge selection of stuff to go /out/ in.
Other countries that may come close would be Brazil due to the huge rainforests, Argentina with its mountains, plains, and coast, Australia with the vast outback and coastlines, even China with its varied terrain.
>>650537 Agreed with China being high on the list, but there's also more than a billion people there. There's cities everyone with over a million population. Same with India, very diversw, but there's just SO many people.
Because of this, USA wins my vote. Also, neither India nor China have true artic tundras.
>>650544 Kickass country, VERY much /out/... but because of its relatively small soze, I'd have to keep it off the top of the list. Still, I'd rather go /out/ there than many other countries that would "technically" be better.
Australian bush has its charm. It's like no other in the world. Unfortunately that means pretty harsh dry landscape that may not be the comfiest to look at, but sometimes I double take on some great rolling fields with the foot of a forrest made of ghost gums and enormous gum trees.
Can anyone actually convince me why the US is not the best /out/ country geographically speaking? Other countries may have some better mountains for example, but we have those mountains plus literally everything else
>>651251 Canada is the best I've come across so far, haven't really travelled around much of it except the province I live in, though. Really want to explore eastern Russia and Hokkaido with my gf though, heard they're beautiful in the winter.
The laws here on camping and fire starting in a lot of a states where you can eek out a decent living are a joke. Any public forest near a large population is full of hobos and junkies. To that point, too much land is privately owned and off limits. In order to have a good /out/ experience here then you basically have to go so fucking far out of your way you spend more time travelling to your spot than enjoying it. Plus the holiday laws for employees mean you rarely get a chance to have an extended hike/camp anyway, even if you can find a decent spot where you can start a fire and not have to worry about forest hobbos and gun-totting land owners. Most people car camp in bullshit camping grounds for a reason.
Scotland, the Nordics and Russia are the best places to go out in the developed world.
do yall niggas even fucking /out/? Chile cant get more /out/ than it already is. its literally a fucking mountain chain RIGHT FUCKING NEXT to the ocean. Tons of History from their past civilizations, Machu Pichu, the entirety of the Andes, tierra del fuego, Glaicers and Deserts, oh and did i mention THEY OWN PART OF THE ANTARCTIC.
Honorable mention to Norway and you fucks still cant give it any love smfh
>>651209 America is a big place, yo. If we want tropics, we go to Hawaii, if we want mountains, we go to the Rockies or the Cascades. If we want Autumn colors, we go to New England. We don't really ever need to leave the country to see what we want, unless it's something uniquely foreign.
>>651604 Call me autist or whatever you want but is it that difficult to try to not fuck your own language? Mistaking shit like >then >than >your >you're really does rustle my jimmies desu family. It's not that hard and it should not be accepted lightly. But hey, no hard feelings ;-)
>>651190 You're partially correct, Australia is for the large part a giant desert but the parts that aren't vary from tropical rainforest to cool temperate forests with a fuckton of grassland in between, the country ranges from ~10deg to 45deg south. A lot of Australia isn't very comfy out territory though, like a lot of southern Africa everything is spiky in the arid areas, most of the available wood is hard as fuck to work and flies, many many flies, find the right places though and it's awesome >Pic from around the Pemberton Karri forest - one of the tallest tree species in the world which were harvested near to extinction The other nice thing is it's quiet unless you're /out/ in peak holiday season.
>>650465 I'd defs give it to the US >Massive variety - southern badlands, Alaskan ice, Appalachian rainforests, mountains, wetlands and so on >Extensive and pretty good national park system >Low enough population density that you can get away from people. You can even find true fucking isolation in Alaska >Not overly polluted > /out/ culture
Australia >Good variety, large parts of the country rival Alaska in isolation. Beautiful isolated beaches. /out/ culture. Good national parks >But (imo) - not as much variety as the US. Australia trees and forests just don't look as good as forests in America or Europe. Less seasonal variation compared to the US which adds to your variety in a way.
NZ >Gorgeous. Good /out/ culture. >Too small
Argentina and Chile >Fantastic variety compared to size because they're tall rather than long. Culture seemed pretty pro-/out/. Gorgeous landscape down south >Doubt you could get away from people as easily as the US or Aus, most of the national parks I went to seemed pretty overrun with people. >Didn't really spend long enough there to properly judge.
Canada, Russia >I figure there'd be less variety there. I dunno
Europe >Too little variety per country. Too many people.
Asia >Too many people
Mostly talking out my ass on the last 3 t b h f a m
>>652221 >Australia trees and forests just don't look as good as forests in America or Europe It's interesting, Australia has some of the oldest landmasses but the newest forests, the flowering trees we have grow much faster than trees from an older age but live for a far shorter time, I agree though, the way Eucalypts grow allows for a lot of undergrowth, super dense in places and an absolute bitch to get around in, not as comfy as other forest types.
>>652595 Yeah, but I don't think any compare to the US, Aus or S America.
China and India for example - both have a fair amount of variety but there's not the /out/-supportive culture and infrastructure you get in the west (poorly run national parks, pollution, encroaching industry etc). And you can't even get away to the wilderness like you can in a lot of Aus, Can or the US because of the population. Obviously there are exceptions (Inner Mongolia or XInjiang in China for ecample) but then you're losing out on variety.
Pretty much any other Asian coutnry has similar issues but doesn't even have the size to start with.
I'm not saying Asia isn't great to go /out/ but I just don't see the word 'best' fitting any of them.
>>652221 >New Zealand is too small but it's a fact that you can get as far away from civilization in New Zealand as you can in any other country, barring Canada and Russia. NZ has true, old-growth, pristine wilderness of a caliber found only in a handful of countries. It's not just on the South Island, either; I walked in a straight line for five days in the Urewera Forest on the north island without seeing another person, just the occasional abandoned poacher's track or DOC hut. It's development that matters, not size.
>>652221 >talking out your ass At least you own up to it. >Too little variety per country Spain alone has easily as much landscape variety as America. Mediterranean forest, true desert, hardwood forest, alpine forest, and at least three distinct mountain ranges.
>>651190 Its actually far more complex than that. Outback desert, semi-arid mulga, the mangroves of up North, tropical rainforest in Queensland, towering mountain ash forests and so much more than I can think of. I doubt you could name anywhere else with such a truly unique flora and fauna - eucalyptus and banksias, platypuses and koalas
>>652221 I would argue Canada has almost as much variety as the US personally, we have rainforests, deserts, grasslands, tundra, mountains, so on so forth just like plenty of other places,though admittedly our desert is a bit lacking compared to the US. I would also say we have a pretty strong /out/ culture too, and being slightly larger then the US with about 10% of the population means you can get really isolated if you so choose. Also while Ive never been to Argentina or Chile myself, I would argue that for someone dedicated enough, you could get out of the crowds in most countries outside of the really tiny European ones like Luxembourg and shit like that. Similarly for NZ, while it is small, I think it's still big enough for that not to be too big of a detractor.
