I'm looking at getting my first backpacking pack. Currently looking at the Osprey Stratos 50 (pic related) or the Osprey Aether 60. I've never really gone backpacking before but I've heard 50-60L would be good for weekend or multi-day backpacking. I'm leaning more towards the Stratos because I would rather pack lighter. Any recommendation? Also, is AG just a meme or should I be looking into AG models?
Also general backpack questions and whatnot
Wouldn't more straps and stuff be good? In case you suddenly want to bring a sleeping bag and a tent etc.
I like my Bergans Viking 90L+. It's so adjustable
I mean for a zombie apocalypse backpack I would be getting pic related but I'm just talking about a hiking and camping pack where I'm not looking tacticool af.
90L would be way too much for what I'm thinking of.
go buy the cheapest 50l you can find. starting with a 50 will help keep you from overpacking too much as a beginner, starting good habits early, and using a cheap pack will help you learn what features you want in a pack (what the pack has that you like, has that you don't like, and wish you had but doesn't) without feeling bad about having spent a lot off the bat and wanting to buy a better suited pack in a season or two. then, when you actually know what size and features you want and have in mind a couple packs that fit your desires, find a store that keeps them in stock, load them up with some weight, and wander around the store in each of them for half an hour or so and see how they really feel on you.
Where are all my kayak bro's at? Is nothing more peaceful?
>>955031 >sea-faring (ocean) kayaks tend to be sit-on-tops
No they don't. SOTs are for near shore and protected water.
Looking at inflatables to save on space. Is Sea Eagle worth the money?
That boat would probably be good, but remember if you're carrying your rucksack, it will have to be stored under the seats or the bow/stern. If it does not bother you to stuff your pack in and dig it out every time you get in and out of the boat, then that should be a fine canoe for someone who is starting out.
This is from last summer.
I'll start. SE Wisconsin

Looking for a traveling partner
I have a small dog and and small tent.
I am in Kingman Arizona.
I am an exceptional panhandler
And good at odd-jobs/manual labor
I do smoke weed. No meth no heroin.
I am interested in botany, philosophy, and psychedelic drugs and their usage in a shamanistic aspect.
I admire Terence McKenna and Alan Watts.
Oh god you gotta be rusing me
There both heroin and meth addicts.
I literally only smoke weed and I live with the biggest dealer in town (cousin)
I'd be cool with learning a new instrument. I feel inclined towards the spoons out of those two. I have everything I need.
They're both heroin and meth addicts.
I only smoke weed and eat mushrooms.
>>956808 >in AZ >not heading to Quartzite or Yuma to catch a ride with snowbirds.
Lazy much? Get your ass over there before they all head north without you. And don't let their age fool you, half these old fucks were hippies in the 60's and they're 420 friendly.

Where is that anon who posted the long video telling when to use which lures in what conditions? Anybody else ever watch it? Should we keep it in the OP? Otherwise we could get a list of Youtube vids and put them in the Pastebin or keep a couple important ones in the OP.

Talk about fishin
They had nice action but didn't produce any hits. But the spots I was at are so heavily fished that bites are few and faaaar between.
how did you rig it?
Wieght less texas rig.
Probably but they are China tier so don't get mad when they fill with water.

How do you cope with loneliness innawoods
I sing or talk to my dog if he's with me. Or I imagine a conversation with my non-existant gf in my head.
I go innawoods to get away from people. I don't need deal with lonliness, I seek it.
I had this happen. One older, married woman in my office kept pestering me about why I wanted to hike alone. In her mind she couldn't fathom doing anything alone, but she's the sort who follows her husband around and participates in whatever he's into. I bet the poor fucker would go hiking without her if he could.
What's the meaning of life, /out/?
You make it up as you go along.
Fucking selfindulgent prick!
To help others in need, to be of service to your community, to love your family and first and foremost to worship God before all else!
To find the meaning of life, first thing you've got to do is ask yoourself a question.
Are dreams real? It's a deceptively simple question, but upon consideration it reveals a couple of deeper truths about that nature of reality and why the hell you exist in the first place. Think about it for a whole day and then we'll further discuss it.
I don't know if they are real or not but I can say you that I dream a lot and I really mean it. I dream multiple times a night, with family, friends, people that I have met once years ago. Dreams about parties, sex, holidays, work. It's overwhelming sometimes.
Anyone knows why?
Hello all, i need help! I want to buy a canoe, i live near Danube river so water is calm, also i want to camp so i need canoe where i can put things.
I liked this one...
D'oh! Forgot pic.
THX u all :)
Make one you worthless fat fuck
Old Town Guide 147 - rugged and durable, great value for the price. Buy it used for $300-400.
pic related is my set up. Got a 55lb thrust tm, 3 27 series batteries, sonar, cell phone mount..plenty of room for a cooler or a buddy + camping gear.
Craigslist is your friend.
Bought my first canoe for $375, came with 3 paddles and a life jacket. It's a 17ft Michicraft aluminum canoe. My friend and I take it to Saguaro lake for bowfishing.
Bought another one for $350. A 17ft Alumacraft aluminum canoe. Came with a 40lb thrust motor and two paddles. Gambled with this one as it had a hole that was patched up with some sort of epoxy. Tested it out yesterday and it floated fine. No leaks or anything.
Any good recommendations? Ideally looking for the following features
-Withstand constant and sometimes strong wind
-Rain fly that isn't the equivalent of a g-string
-Lots of air flow/windows/mesh
-2 doors would be nice
-Simple set up
-Not going to cost me a kidney in $$$
I've made some pretty cheap and shitty tents work and survive more than one 3 day excursion at a beach, but having one that would hold up for a year and not be a janky POS would be nice.
As cool as that Tentmock is, no trees in sight at the beach
So you want a nice beach tent.
This assumes you are driving to the beach and packing it from the lot to the dunes.
You want a bad ass fuck palace?
Ticla Teahouse 3.
Easily my best car camp tent! Sorry, all pics on old phn.
You are welcome.
Fucking great looking, but way out of my price range
Wow all that mesh is exactly what I'm looking for, the fly isn't what i was hoping for, but the fact all the windows have zip covers is killer.
also, I'm in TX, so we can drive on our beaches. I just park where I set up :P
