ITT: pointless stuff you'd never buy.
>campfire stands This has to be the most retarded and shameless ripoffs I've ever seen.
A primitive but effective contraceptive
Are you in a hurry to get to sleep Anon? Even in a sudden down poor I could throw a tarp between two trees faster than set up a tent.
She probably got a good dicking after he left for his camping trip.
there's no rule that says insulation can only be used with a tent, so why haven't you tried using one with a hammock?
I go beach camping all of the time (free in the winter) and they don't allow open campfires on site. Having a fire stand is a much lighter alternative to having to lug a bucket for a mile.
NoKids fuck off reeee
Tell me ideas on how you are raising out kids, ideas to get them to play outside. Stuff to do with them and stuff to make them do without you? My daughter is 15 months old and we play outside literally every single day. Almost especially in the snow. But it’s easy right now, how can I keep it interesting outside? What about for city folks?
her son would go ballistic if i ever did that
>>1458837 >her son
You dun goofed.
>would go balistic
Then it's already too late. You're trapped with imbeciles, but to be honest you're probably one yourself.
You're a cuck for two different reasons. You're raising a child that's not yours, and you're not even disciplining him in fear of his anger. Absolute pussy
I am not afraid of him, its just that when he is so upset, it damages him and makes everyone miserable.
There is no fear involved in this.
Keep them going. When they get older in scouts, >=14, then look into places like Philmont. I went twice as a kid and took my son twice. Nothing is more satisfying than hearing him say how that experience matured him and he rolls his eyes when his peers complain about petty shit.
Daypacks, Backpacks, and the Occasional Fannypack
Nah it’s a full on pack that can convert from 40 to 60 liters depending on how much you stuff in there. I’m trying to get a feel for if Sierra Designs makes really good stuff at a fair price or if there’s a big following around this Skurka guy and I’d be better off with an osprey pack or something.
Skurka is a highly respected outdoorsman so anything he's involved in is going to good. I don't know what SD's customer care is like compared to Osprey though.
Yes side mesh pockets are great. Hating on water bladders is silly though. Unless it’s just not your preference, they’re overwhelming popular for a reason.
>>1457102 >most retarded shit ever
What did you fucking buy. Don’t rant about a shitty product if you can’t be bothered to name it.
Meme or worth 20 bucks?
>>1459839 >steep uphill/downhill >heavy pack >uneven terrain (snow, mud)
if any of the 2 apply for a trip they're worth it
Yeah absolutely, trekking poles are super useful. Use em for steep uphill or downhill, walking with a heavy pack, walking in slippery, uneven or rough terrain or crossing streams.
20 bucks is really cheap for some poles though, I'm not sure if I'd trust a 20$ pair of poles
just grab a stick off the ground if/when you need it. chances are if you need a walking stick so did someone else going the other way so look around, there's probably already one there.
Exactly, the scourge of faggotry has put the culture of sticks upon the brink of extinction.
Long hiking experience, had one and it made a world of difference, same with walking sticks. People don't realize if you use it to push then you can gain momentum going up hills, making steep ascents easier.
Girlfriends birthday is coming up next week and she's more /out/ than me, so I want to give her a trip somewhere around Scandinavia or close to. I don't just want a country, but strong ideas where in a country and what routes to take when we hike.
In my mind I have a vague idea of doing some hiking from hut to hut in Norway, Sweden, Switzerland or similar, but I'm not really sure where to start.
but I would hike around Sandsjöbacka just south of Göteborg. A big place with a lot of trails and a lot of off-trail as well. But that’s like a day tops. For longer hikes you need to go further north imo
If Canoeing appeals to you, Sweden is very well set up for it, and it's cheap too.
They have a wonderful network of shelters out there, and it's a very relaxing and enjoyable way to spend a week. Pic related.
If it appeals i can give you just the place to go for a nice simple cheap and fantastic week.
im gonna need the location of that shelter my man, most of them are build with the opening towards the lake which is retarded
That one's on Tullon, just south of Bastnas, on Stora Le...
Though it's on a peninsula and all three sides except the back are water, so ya may be disappointed.
The southermost one on that lake was very well sheltered though, lovely spot. Little inlet to pop the canoes out of the water, then trees all round the shelter with the opening facing a rocky tree topped rise with the lake behind it.
if you plan to go hut to hut in switzerland just take into account that there are not that many free places in the alps and the other ones can cost between 30-65 CHF a night
>mfw people are living in a society Fuck this I’m starting a Grugg camp for adults unironically
That doesn't really make sense though. You can't achieve inner peace by changing things outside of you. It might help you find that place inside of you. But it won't get you there.
what a load of bullshit, of course changing the external environment can bring you peace. Fuck off with that hippie bullshit, it's been weaponized by the establishment to make you complacent with the status-quo, while forcing you to accept 100% responsiblity for how you feel, when in fact it is the external world, not the internal which needs to change.
It's both you brainlet. Get your head straight, then participate in your community so you have some influence over it.
i just want to become a hermit tbqh
not everyone wants the same thing
Last thread went great, lets have another one
what is the top one on the right and fourth one down on the right?
for me, its simply i can keep track of my own posts easier
Shrug. Doubt it
The knife factory that makes kabar in Olean new york gives tours. I lucked out and got to do it while traveling for work.
So why do it on a website that that goes against a core spirit principle of, rather than reddit? Here, only your content itself should stick out, but your name turns all of your posts into a long term attention beacon.
Can we have a ski/board thread here? Wrestling autists have completely run everybody else off of /asp/ and /out/ feels pretty appropriate anyway.
As a britfag I'd be very happy to have that within an hour or so drive.
Yeah I can't be too salty since it's only a 30 minute drive from me, and they keep their park fun and their rates reasonable
Nice! Better than nowt eh.
reminds me of the place I skied as a kid- basically a depression in a farmers field- vertical drop about 300ft. he threw up some rope tows and called a ski area. I burned thru a few a pair of mittens from the ropes at that place. It closed down a while ago- all I could find was this cheesy vid.
Yep, also full of brain damaged hippies though
When I started off I wanted to buy high end stuff, and I realised that I always tried to buy the best and the cooler it looks the better.
In 180°ed away from that, but it took me a while. Here a couple of tips: Don't buy stuff you can DIY or already have yourself. There were a bunch of things where I believed that I had to buy a new thing. But look around and you will find something that works just as well. Dont buy stuff for looks. I user to have tactical knives because they looked super cool. Battoning is retarded and for carving I use the same Opinel i got for 10£ which I use to gut my fish. To chop wood I have my own, small hatchet which was like 15£. Tadaa, instead of spending upwards of 80£ for a knive, I spent less than 30 quid and it does more for me. And both those things do better what the knife did alone, the hatchet won't break and the opinel cuts better. Don't buy stuff you won't need. This one seems obvious. But if you are going not far from home, especially in the beginning, you don't need to bring the same stuff you would use for a weekend. Also: don't buy food, make your own. Learn some recipes that are good for on the way, like hiney roasted peanuts. This will save you a TON of money, since MREs are fucking expensive (on that note I recommend that you can also bring insta noodles with you, they are something I like to cool when I'm /out/ and can't fish, and also as a backup food.) Cut corners, but don't be cheap. Read reviews before you buy, and if in doubt, ask /out/. There are always gear and q&a threads.
That's only a minor part of the book, the apathy of the people against other nation's people. The total control is something which we are going towards, and also the main part of the book.
Your English is excellent, M8.
H. G. Wells
Thank you very much!
For both, also rhe recommendations
Yee. I love my No.6 Opinel, best knife I ever bought. Cuts fucking everything and is light as a feather.
Titanium stuff is pretty good too. Unbreakable for the most part.
Anon, don't argue practicality above being a poser. Otherwise people will think you're not a larper or some rich kid.
Patches, badges, keychains, trinkets, and anything that looks neat and related to /out/ .
Form and function should go hand in hand.
You aren't even a Scandi, are you?
not Scandi, but Northern Europe
Also extraneous pack weight.
