How do I /out/ while I'm here? I lived in Colorado for over 2 years and now the whole midwest is a huge joke to me. As soon a I save enough money I'm getting climbing gym membership, and that's really all I can think of besides the forest preserves.

Get up to Wisconsin, or go either out west towards the Mississsippi River or south like Carbondale for anything that resembles terrain and wildlife.

Check out Starved Rock or whatever the hell it's called. My sister went camping there a few years back and witnessed some dude jump off a cliff and kill himself.

Youre in the Great Lakes region and Cant find an /out/door activity?

Are you hurt or sick? Is something preventing you from thinking clearly?

Well, name one place a day-trip distance from Chicago where there's /out/ stuff to do. I've looked into sailing but I'm pretty broke right now so it's off the table. Basically right now I have typical camping gear, and a small trad climbing rack along with mountaineering gear I've put together over the years.

You're fucking retarded. Illinois is confirmed for basement tier out opportunities. It's the goddamn worst. You can drive up to northern wisconsin, which is like 4-5 hours, and there's some decent stuff up there, but don't act like this guy's an idiot. Chicago is AWFUL for /out/. Especially compared to everything west of it.

Anon, you're kinda fucked. That being said, you can drive just a bit past milwaukee and there's that teakettle moraine thing (state park) and that could be a day trip. It looked like shit when I was down there, but some people say there are decent spots to hike around. If I were you I'd be urbexing and writing a coffee table book about it.

And don't get shot.

If you are on a day trip do you bring your camping gear?
>>
>>660402
Only some stuff that might be called "camping" gear, i.e. survival stuff in case I get lost.

You must be really fun to go outdoors with.

Pic related. Hanging /out/ in Chicagoland.

so, if you catch something, do you take it to the recycling center to have the heavy metals reclaimed?

A lot of the mercury in fishies comes from the bedrock, not pollution.

You out of Colorado so you have mountain disease. I tend to be like that too out of Washington. The forest preserves and lakes in Chicago are a lot of fun for /out/. Get into some lake fishing, explore the beaches, and just enjoy the forests. You just have to change your activities, which is unfortunate if you love mountains like I do, but it's just something you got to get over.

I'm also currently living in Chicago.

OP, your only chance is to go to Wildcat Mountain State Park in Wisconsin. The driftless region has hills, and it's fucking gorgeous.

Other than that, yeah this region is absolutely hideous. I've traveled the west, and I was trying to move out there, but opportunities just keep opening up for me in Chicago. I almost want to just call it quits on everything here and move near the mountains, but I know that after the excitement of living in the west wears off, I'd regret leaving all of the opportunities here.
