Those aren't issues. Its really cheap to hike compaired to "normal life" get a few grand in good gear , quit your job, sell your car, if you rent, put you stuff in storage, if you have a house, put you stuff in storage and rent the whole house, or even just sell it. Depending on your vices you can do a thru hike on 3-6 grand over like seven months.
>>660808 Time and money aren't issues? Thru hike in the states for less than 4k no problem. I speak the language and buses are cheap. Thru hike in Japan is a little more complicated. Year long visa, one way tickets across the world, no food drops, hostels and hotels are more expensive, buying gear on the trail is more expensive. What trails have you done?
>>660814 Yes. I almost decided torented a motorcycle with a sidecar when I was down in Peru and Chile, to drive down the highway, but backed out because of the hassle of getting an international license. Plus we didn't have enough time Just for travel.
2500', goes as 5.10c or 5.9 a1. either an airplane ride plus a full day's hike or a week hike through grizzly country in. weather's so unpredictable most people commit to camping 2 weeks at the base in hopes of a 2 day window to break.
Id really like to explore the Er Wang Dong tunnels. partially because there are 2 references to dicks in the title and because it fits really close with dreams i used to have when i wad 10 and 11. I can only imagine how beautiful it is in real life
tbqh senpai: >Older tacoma >CRF450r >YZ250 Start from minnesota, head to washington, down to arizona, and then back to minnesota and dirtbike in every state/park. The ol' 450 for big long trails, and the 2 smoker for tough single track. Grab funs, friends, and head out for more then a month
As dorky as it sounds, I would love to UrbEx an over grown and abandoned city or small town and act like survivors from The Last Of Us. Just live in an empty city. Maybe catch a train in like hobos, dismount in the city at a point where the train slows, and rediscover what mankind left when they moved. I think it would be fun to camp out in the ruins of a small library for the night. A small fire is going. The light of the flame playing with the shadows of the warped and bloated spine of the books on the shelves. You look up from a mildly preserved copy of your favorite book to see your closest friends. One maybe is tearing up already ruin copies of an encyclopedia to use as future kindling once you move on. Perhaps one is preparing some freshly harvested food you found earlier in the form of stew to heat up. You gaze over their shoulder to see two more of your friends laughing at a child's joke book they found on the shelf. You look down at your book to see the crispy, pale yellow pages. "Maybe I'll try to finish one more chapter before I turn in" you think. Still a page out from your recent goal you're eyelids get heavy and you decide to turn, besides, you know how the book ends. Laying down you look up through half of the Missing ceiling to see the stars shining. After you predict the the weather Will stay clear through the night you drop your eye lids and drift off in good company. The worst danger I think I wouldn't be able to Minimize would be any wild animals.
Its a long trail that goes all the way through the whole country and actually goes through every single ecological biome. You literally get everything from Desert, mountain, Arctic, Grassland, hills, Marsh/swamp, etc etc
This guy got a bike, all his gear, travelled from Britain to Cape Town through the Middle East, then around South America, replaced the bike that broke, got new gear to replace the damaged gear, then came back about a year and a half later.
And he, apparently, spent less than the price of a BMW GS, which would be somewhere from £14k-£20k.
When you think that the average holiday something like 1.5k per week, he spent basically nothing for an adventure of a lifetime. As if you could even put a price on such a thing, which is what it all comes down to.
>>660797 Walking from Istanbul to Vladivostok, crossing the Karakorum/Himalaya on the way, including summiting all 8000ers; taking a break sightseeing and casual mountaineering in Japan; then walking west through Mongolia, crossing the Altai and Tian Shan mountain ranges before turning north to Omsk and traveling back to Europe by train.
>i'd walk every hill/mountain/benn with a name in Scotland. >kayak in every loch with a name. >sail around the UK and Ireland >walk to every distillery and ask for a wee dram, except Bells! Bells is disgusting! all of this but not specifically in that order.
