Planning on going /out/ once I get sufficient gear. Problem is that I only have a basic understanding of what I need. I plan on packing light as I'm a pretty basic bitch.
What I have/plan on buying
Sleeping bag and mat
Water canteens (6 liters)
Yeah I was planning on getting these later. I'm going to try camping near some family friends house so that if I run into a sticky situation I would be close to help. I'll probably do this until I get comfortable with camping.
I just found this on me, am i fucked? What could i get?
What are the signs?
I ripped it off like a scab thinking it was a scab, i didnt know it was a fuckin tick,
It was still crawlin around after i ripped it off,
Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread
If a self-inflating sleeping pad with open cell foam develops a leak does it still have any insulating ability?
>If a self-inflating sleeping pad with open cell foam develops a leak does it still have any insulating ability?
Some, but not an appreciable amount.
Does the guy in your pic not have a torso?
Watched this recently and it was pretty frustrating watching somebody that delusional. Also sometimes hilarious. I liked how Herzog kind of took the piss out of him at the end
As far as I know, he didn't. Complete shame he got his girlfriend killed with him. I'm pretty sure I remember from the doc or reading something that she wanted to leave and didn't like it there , and he sort of convinced her to stay
Is anyone on /out/ doing something relevant /out/side other than the lads thru hiking?
Anyone crossing Mongolia's steppes on a horse, exploring new tribes on New Guinea, selling vodka on the trans Siberian railway, bare fucking sudanese women behind a tent? Are we all only a bunch of casuals?
The chan is really being raided by bait/globalist/leftard bots.
In case of you being a real person and not just fishing for (you)s then you seriously need to fuck off to whatever safe space you came from.
You seriously need to take a step back or two lad. What you just proposed was actually racist AF. It's no secretly held knowledge that what you are doing is basically perpetuating the commonly held belieif amongst Sudanese women that whoring themselves out to foreign U.K. betas will net them a better life. It's really exploitative if you think about it. I'm sure you only think with your pecker though.
I work at Mountain Equipment Co-op, ask me anything.
I will not post my store location or anything personal information, this is a professional post. That said, I can honestly say it is the best job I have ever had due to the management staff and my coworkers. Everyone is friendly, intelligent, and fun to work with. The management staff work actively on the store floor and keep a casual, friendly atmosphere with their employees.
post old photos of hunters, hikers, or otherwise /out/doorsmen from the 1950s-1980s
How is it Montana really like? And I ask this as an European, I have this glorified imagine of a place with crystal clear water, green pine trees, dark grey mountains, few, dispersed people.
Is it worth crossing half world to visit it one day?
That pic is about what I remember from when I was last there, well, that and the constant smell of bovine feces. Also, locals thought I was crazy for going hiking without a sidearm, because mountain lions.
Bee thread? Bee thread.
Just got 2 more hives up and running and hope to get another split in before the end of the year.
You can harvest between 30 and 80 lbs of honey per hive per year.
I don't plant any plants intentionally for the bees because the bees will actually fly out 6 miles and return home each day. There is a botanical garden near by and they probably spend a lot of time there.
Anyone interested in bee keeping?
I'm planning on getting into beekeeping as soon as I live somewhere other than an apartment. I missed my local beekeeper's association beginner class a couple of months ago, so I'm waiting for the next one to come around.
Any advice or recommended literature for an aspiring apiarist?
How feasable is it to travel across America hitch-hiking. I'm an Anglo /out/ist male and have read about Chris Mccandless. He got around with practically no cash however this was in the 70's/80's. Today is different and I know not much is free these days.
What alternatives to hitchhiking are there. I want to travel from East to West.
I am actually planning to hitchhike the us, a lot of the information i have got is from hitchwiki which is really good.
I think although it is harder to hitchhike today and a lot harder to jump freights it is easier to connect yourself with people that can help, like workaway.info where people offer bed & board in exchange for work or couchsurfing where you can stay in peoples homes for free, theres also a section on the app for meeting other travellers.
I'm outdoors, and hungry.
What should I do?
Not shilling. Gimme one reason why you don't own at least 1 arc'teryx piece of equipment for your outdoor needs. We all know they make far superior products then all the other outdoor brands.
I heard you guys don't like cairns. This is my present to you. That is all.
Largest volume training to date last thursday, 10 routes (ranging from 5.6-5.10)for 10 laps each +1 bonus route when some sexy chick wanted to learn how to climb for a total vertical gain of approximately 4k feet, hoping to be in good enough shape to rope solo 39 full length pitches(ranging from 5.9-5.12), not sure I will be ready this year, but good progress is being made!
>half way up route
>sexy chick swimming in creek with her doggos
>back strokes while looking up at me
>asks if she can try
best day ever.
put her on a route with a decently stout top out to a ledge, her little boot shorts quickly stretched and gave way to her 80's style black underwear. exchanged numbers, she wants to go again, pretty sure she is a stripper, also latina, but whatever
had on a beige sports bra/booty shorts
tits were a tad bigger, almost too perfect
had a single tattoo that was a half sleeve, side chest, and thigh, Japanese style. Arms were pretty thin and vascular, had some french nails with jewelry glued on, perfect white teeth.
