We found a Mauser HSC pistol from the second world war while magnet fishing, here is the full video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ocMuuUYybU&index=4&list=PLtVZk5wpUDNw3RhDHRLnPq0-7QPKpYN1n
Alright gents, while I consider myself experienced in camping in the northeast - particularly in the winter - I'm living in the tropics for the next three years. I'm looking into hammock camping, and would appreciate any hot-weather wisdom you all could impart. Appreciate it.
How do I wild camp in cities when travelling? It's much harder than just finding a nose flat land in the countryside .
Hey guys looking for some good books on how to camping and hiking as someone with little experience.
feel free to help a brotha out
Dunno about "camping and hiking" specifically, but my favorite book on foraging is called "stalking the wild asparagus" by euell gibbons. damn, this book has everything in it, and it will really spark a person's imagination concerning cooking and processing food with wild ingredients
Gonna get a Baofeng for my birthday, tell me what I need?
Hey /out/. What is the best way to avoid getting blisters when walking long distances? I got a large blister on my heel and I had to pop it as it was painfully building up pressure and hurt when walking. Is there a way to avoid this in the future? Thanks.
Hey tr/out/s. Since we seem to be heading toward something big happening in North Korea soon I've been thinking a lot about how cool it would be to go there and conquer some mountains and explore.
Do you think once whatever happens there calms down and the country gets opened up a bit there will be a great resurgence in explorative outing?
Very good question, bump for interest.
I think that would be pretty awesome, especially if people make some nice trails.
I have a similar situation with Cuba. /out/ there is pretty fucking nice (I went to Punto Turquino, and my family has a house next to the ocean and mountains.) It's a communist country though, and that fucking sucks.
I would definitely like to visit there again and just stay my entire time /out/ in the mountains. I may have a chance fairly soon.
So every year me and my group of friends go out on our annual winter camping/ hiking trip and this year we're thinking of doing the Triple Crown Loop in Virginia. Anyone here done this loop?
Storytime. Lets get it going.
My choice is small streams that are in connection with bigger rivers going down the sea. Usually light 3-10 grams test spinning or 5 wt fly rod is in use.
I'll be in Switzerland for a few weeks. Who can recommend some good alps to hike? Preferably something with a trail head near a train station and something that doesn't require technical gear.

AI could, but theres like several ten-thousand hikes. What are you looking for Dayhikes? Hut touring? Wild camping?
Here's a website with hike reports: http://www.hikr.org/region2.html and here is the Swiss topographic map and here's the SAC site which runs most of the mountain huts http://www.sac-cas.ch/
>Preferably something with a trail head near a train station and something that doesn't require technical gear.
Postauto bus will bring you pretty much everywhere. and back. Most alpine villages don't have a train station but use the bus. Hiking in September can be pretty, mind the weather and the hunting season tho. Yellow marked trails are easy walking, red trails are hiking and blue routes are technical ascent only.

missed that one
