should it be forbidden for women to go hiking alone?
>Moment Woman Slips Over a Waterfall & Plunges 50ft Down, Suffering 10 Broken Ribs & A Collapsed Lung >A hiker’s GoPro captured the insane moment she plunged down a 50-foot waterfall in Hawaii. Heather Friesen, 26, an American beach volleyball player was hiking Ka'au Crater Trail in Hawaii with friends in 2016 when she slipped and fell into fast-flowing water below. Footage of the ordeal has just been released. She broke 10 ribs, suffered a collapsed lung, and fractured her shoulder blade after losing her footing. Friesen had turned her GoPro camera on moments before she fell.

Why haven't you been to the upper peninsula yet?

I want my $4 back

-10 to -30 Celsius
So who do you think will have firsties once it's completed?
only jesus can complete the trail
Well, he does own a landscaping company.
First, you hike what you got. It's not the Midwest's fault we got lakes instead of mountains. In 20 years, when Lake Mead is dry, ask the southwest if they'll trade. (We won't.)
Second, it's not going to be solid cornfields and rolling meth labs (it skips Indiana). The eastern sections will go through the foothills of the Appalachians, western Michigan will be influenced by Lake Michigan and probably includes some dunes, and most of what's north and west of the mighty Mac will be forested. There may not be mountain vistas, but there will be plenty of water and at least you won't fill like you're walking through endless rocks and desert hoping to die before the buzzards take you alive.
Finally, if the world is a better place with more people who understand /out/, why not put some of it near where anyone lives?
>>1597225 >texas is second largest state >having that baby dick trail
what a waste
This, I would only hike back and forth on the AT this side of the Mason Dixon like God intended, fuck all yankee trails.
Appalachian "Mountains" kek more like glorified HILLS
>muh bare jagged rocks >muh distance frum sea level >muh ice So much westie cope over lack of biodiversity and biodensity in a given area. Even Uncle Ted wrote lamentations over the lack of wild edibles compared to the eastern woodlands.
britbong here, what's so deadly about mt washington?
It's at the intersection of like 3 weather systems that get funneled down the mountain range straight to it. It's had the second-coldest temperature recorded on earth
>>1600650 >what's so deadly about mt washington

I'm tired of everyone LARPing on this board, the people who post solid advice get shit on because someone points out what they think is dumb, without any real experience, and then pulls a strawman argument out of their ass. The rest of this website has always been degenerative but its saving graces of creativity and uniting people through social ineptitude are running extremely low. It's time for me to go after 4 years. It's been a good time and best of luck to all you. Adventure on and don't get yourselves killed.
FUCK THAT FAGGOT YOU ARE TOO FUNNY AND THAT RESPONSE TO HIS THING HE SAID THERE IS FUNNY ALSO PLUS YOU ARE RIGHT THIS IS FUCKING 4CHANNEL
I'm not the muh 4channel poster. I think making that post is autistic shitposter tier and both of those posters should be gassed by stinky remi feet. Probably you too.
>>1600736 >Probably you too
Yeah, probably, but I like to give moral support to those that I deem to be attacked by even bigger faggots than themselves. You're all so funny, I get many (relatively) keks. I imagine almost everyone here to be toddlers wearing Devo hats.
Didn't they write that song whip it? It was based off Gravity's Rainbow's limericks iirc
Yep, and backed by checked dubs of fact.
Hi everyone. I'm a first time poster, and am headed to my yearly jaunt to the Florida panhandle. I have board-fished it for years, and have had decent luck, but wanted some advice. I typically troll a Rapala while I search for larger fish or schools of fish, and then I cast Gotcha lures or spoons when I see a decent fish or school. I try to diversify and use topwater poppers, swimbaits, and a multitude of other lure types to see what is working best, but I would appreciate someone more seasoned than me providing any tips they may have. I get up early and fish from dawn until mid-afternoon, then I head in and grab something to eat, and then I fish the later afternoon until dark.
Any residents have advice for better techniques, or any ideas that might be ideal for the season? I know it's a bit early for sailfish to be near shore, but I was thinking of at least fishing for smaller fare to use for live bait, like this little tunny I caught last year. Seriously, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I have 3 axe heads without shafts, am thinking of making new ones myself, but i have never even replaced a shaft, any tips?
It's putting from rust, you could sand it down if it bothers you that much but I would just soak the head in distilled white vinegar and be done with it.
Get yourself a shinto saw rasp for shaping
Ash and hickory is the only two woods you should consider.
Oak is hard and durable, but it's not impact proof and it WILL splinter and pinch your hands. Birch is too soft. If it's for casual outings with maybe 4-5 minutes of use each trip, you can use whatever the heck you want. If it's for hardcore tree murder you should pick ash or hickory. Also wax and clearcoat on the shaft(...) will give you blisters, oil won't.
buy a new one with a handle made of carbon fibres. You can thank me later.
birch is one of the pioneer species, hence the soft wood. Rather use birch to extract betulin. Beech, ash or sweet chestnut are most commonly used for the shaft. Oak isn't flexible enough.
You been sighting in your weapon, right?
Anyone doing primitive arms hunting coming up next month? You got your stand and plot setup, right? Been out scouting and anything on your trail cams? Let's talk about deer hunting since the season is right around the corner.
Sup Brahs, i'm about to hunt for the first time (deer, just want meat). I've done a lot of research but I still just want some clarification. I'm in Idaho btw. I can just get a deer OTC tag, go up to any legal public hunting land, sit the fuck down for hours until I see a deer, and claim it if I do. If not, I try again the next day. Is that the general idea?
Also, I know how to butcher and skin a deer, my question is if I'm quartering it and carrying the meat/bones out. Do I just leave the rest of the carcass there? I thought I had to put the tag on the deer still?
Yeah. This Anon is right and the game commissioners, biologists and government agencies dealing with conservation in most jurisdictions in North America, are wrong.
Don't be a tool. Guns are cheaper than ever these days and you live in America. Buy a damn deer rifle.
Yes just leave the rest of the carcass there. The other animals and birds will eat it. As for tagging it will depend on your state. In my state they have an app that you can use to check in your deer. Once you have your deer checked it does not have to be tagged and you can quarter it or transport/ do whatever. If you cannot check it in for whatever reason (the only one I can think of is if you don't have a cell phone), then you need to tag it in order to legally transport it.
Karamojo Bell killed over a thousand elephants with military ball 7mm Mauser.
You don't need anything heavier than .264 /6.5 mm for any game on the American continent, unless you're chasing brownbears through a coastal rain forest, and in that case .45/70 is more than enough.

More and more jurisdictions remove that restriction every year. This isn't the 1970s, not all .223 expanding ammo is meant to blow up a groundhog.
Any Advice for someone who wants to thru hike the long trail? I was thinking doing it either mid April or early summer.
Lighten your pack weight
Be prepared for hard days where everything sucks
Be open minded, don't be a judgemental dick
Make friends, they make the hard days much easier
Never quit on a bad day
Dry out your gear ASAP after it gets wet
Have done four thru-hikes, thousands of miles trail running, thousands of hours rock climbing....ask me anything:
Why are you still posting on this board that's full of retards who have never hiked more then 25 miles in a day

Not sure if the dude is a larper or legit, why would he be on here?
Couldnt find a questions that dont deserve their own thread post so thought I'd make one and oh boy do I got a dumb one.
These straps around the sheepskin here, I see lots of people have them for their sleeping bags and tents to attach to their bags I always just tied my.stuff around with a shoelace and I'm wondering do you buy these separate or is your bag suppose to come with these straps?
A foam-backed picnic mat that fits the floor of your tent will be softer than layers of blankets.
