What are your thoughts on keeping warm?
sleeping bag alone or + bivy? Air or foam ground insulation? sleeping naked or clothed? Tent heat source propane, wood, etc?
I usually go every year. I do a hammock (heavily forested area) with a full length underquilt and a zero degree mummy bag. I use a Warbonnet Superfly in house mode. I've taken this setup down to 11F and been comfortable. Everyone I go with has a variation of this setup, but we'll usually get some new guys that spend their first trip in a tent. Most of the people you take aren't going to come next year.
I usually sleep clothed. Long johns or underarmor, sometimes both. I don't take an in shelter heat source, but I will throw a few hot hands in the sleeping bag a few minutes before I get in; they keep it pretty toasty.
Haul a small yurt and a wood burning stove on a sled.
winter can mean so much, just below 0 and still wet and soggy is much worse than -30 and dry. i did my worst winter camps in +2 and rain and my best in -30, all with the same clothing and gear (army).
just watched this, now i miss the army days
No one needs a hot tent with modern equipment you autist
I prefer to use both a foam mat and an air mat.
Best methods for obtaining food for free? Best foods to buy for cheap?
dumpster dive behind supermarkets and cafes an hour or two after close, and again before open.
instead of spending hours looking for plausible rot; get a job and use that money in the clearance aisle
If near a trail town in US. Hiker boxes
this but fast food restaurants, One bag will have untouched product that is disposed of in it's own bag. A manager takes inventory, pizza palaces like a sbaro or other chains that sell pizza by the slice. Another is directly from a farmer in exchange for labor. Eggs, Veg, hog farmers take their own animal to a slaughter house for curing and slicing, where is is not subject to USDA rules. Best bacon you ever had.
has hit it's image limit.
Too many threads on missing hikers and which tent to buy next.
Prove that you actually go outside by posting a pic from your most recent /out/ing, and rate other people's campsites
animeposters and /k/ommandos welcome !
Have a good time.
No no, not fungal. Just dry. Maybe I walk on hot brick barefoot too often.. Will clean out my boots tho, with more than just rinsing this time
different person but I like to drive into national park turf about as far as I can get my jeep in and then setup a small hike from there a heavier basecamp, I have a daypack with lighter gear if I hike in from there and then have my basecamp as a failsafe to return to for extra water/food/supplies. This winter it will have 12 gallons of water, double 0F bags and emergency rations for a week or two. I'm not going to haul all that weight on my back.
>>2230845 >Just dry.
yeah, that's fungus. you need to get some athletes foot spray.

I really hope not. Damn, I'll have it checked out
I went to Arizona a few weeks back to the grand canyon parashant national monument, and it is among the most desolate places to be in within the continental USA. It’s about the size of Rhode Island and is the most desolate place I’ve ever been to. I bet there’s no one around for 30 or 40 miles at its most desolate. I went camping for a week there and it was so refreshing to not have anyone bother you. A jeep with a lift kit is a must if you’re traveling out there though, since the roads are very rarely traveled on.
Have any of you traveled to a particularly desolate place?
Camping on tribal land? Nah nibba I don’t wanna fuck with skin walkers and ghosts and shit.
Fuck off we're full
>>2230957 >ghosts and skinwalkers
I didn't worry about it.
Man that looks fun to go exploring in, I gotta look around my deserts in Arizona more.
>Pic related is new river Arizona out in the new river mountains
Is this what happens when you spend years in the forest alone? I'm not insulting the man he seems happy and he has a nice little setup and honestly I'm a bit jealous jealous but I'm genuinely concerned about ending up like this from spending too much time alone. He comes off as being completely crazy.
You post this every day. You don't go outside. There are over 2000 results for 'i'm not watching your e-celeb clickbait thumbnail-lookin' video' in the archive. You really need to go outside.
>>2232365 >There are over 2000 results
Show me three.
You prove you go outside first. I took this picture earlier today.
Is this van urs? What do u think about motorbikes? Do u ever used em to go camping??
We have a thread for posting outdoor activity. I made it.
But derailing aside, post any of the
>>2232365 >2000 results
because that was your main counter
if you can't that is just proof you are responding without reason
go to the youtuber containment thread
/out/ Questions that don't deserve their own thread
i found that you will get an information overload if you look at a broad North America coverage when it comes to botany / plant/ fungus identification.
so i looked into your state / provincial universities programs recommended readings ( if they have them) I was able to find some very regional specific and much more useful books.
I looked into my*
Should I get up at 4 to catch the sunrise? I have to drive.
No shit nigger i tried that, they dont exactly have a private land filter
What kind of program(s) should I look at? Forestry? Land management?
Innawoods in Door County, Wisconsin (pic related) on a moonless, pitch black night, not a wind moving, not a sound to be heard but the falling leaves... and in the trees in the distance, I see the palest, faintest light, moving incredibly slowly. Far too dim to be a human/flashlight. Maybe 100 yards away through the trees, I have to reposition to see it. I stood there looking at it for 5 minutes, mouth agape in awe, until I got spooked as hell from the darkness and silence and got back in my car and fell asleep immediately, dreaming of swimming through a perfect, crystal clear lake and finding a mysterious large cabin on the other side of the lake - as soon as I reach the cabin, I bolt awake.
What the fuck was it? I was 100% sober. This whole experience creeped me the hell out but the dream was nice I guess. Anyone know any folklore or mythology that could explain this?
>>2232349 >I wanna see some whacky shit
I mean, you better have a better reason than that. you cannot be doing it to illicit some horror movie drama in your tiny head. because, just like porn.. horror movies aren't the real world.
but sex is, ghost are. sex with ghost isn't.
Different anon but I keep my phone off and in my pack when /out/. I'm not some instagram camwhore that needs to take pictures to prove I was /out/ and about. On a different note, I've seen some shit I can't explain and some wild shit that I can reasonably explain. From green meteorites to firefly like things that were red, yellow, blue, and green, to an aircraft of some kind that doesn't match any kind I've seen in publications.
>>2232363 >green meteorites
>firefly like things that were red, yellow, blue, and green
>to an aircraft of some kind that doesn't match any kind I've seen in publications
yep military always has new shit
please tell me when you see a demon
Bugs don't glow in vivid blues, greens, and reds in my area. The yellow one might have been a firefly, though they were uncommon that year for some reason. I think they were killed either by a late cold snap or by pesticides on the crops grown here. I wouldn't know a demon if I saw one and hesitate to make claims about things that I'm ignorant on. As for the aircraft, I don't know what it was. That happened in the mid-90's and the only references I see about similar craft is "aliens" thought I hesitate to claim it was ayyy lmao.
This is a thread for [mostly] civil discussion of big packs, daypacks, bags and other load-bearing equipment.
Ask questions, post packs, review stuff you have used, help anon out.
Could have had a literal mystery ranch one for 30-40
Compression straps, no useless pockets, actual build quality.
That's what I did desu
>>2232024 >Could have had a literal mystery ranch one for 30-40
Which one? The Hip Monkey?
Cursory search and found it for 55-65€ + 6-10€ shipping (varies from shop to shop).
My entire collection of four cheap hip packs cost me 40€.
American brands are terribly overpriced in Europe. For example the Mountainsmith Tour I mentioned before would cost me some 100€ (USD$120) + shipping and I'm just a poorfag from a poor part of yurop.
Full moon is cheaper, its about exactly 40. I get it anon I'm an eu poorfag too but that's why I can't afford to buy random Chinese shit 4 times. I guess it's already done now, and I'm no brand whore so whatever works. But fuck I cringe whenever I see all the mil tec or amazon special shit people itt buy for the a few £€$ less or the same price as shit that's actually confirmed good
Alright, you shilled me. jaakari is in the mail.
Recs for a small pack/daypack? looking to comfortably carry a 3L bladder, food, a bit of clothing, and maybe 10 lbs of camera shit
Post some cool bridges you hang out under
I like to swim around under here. Sometimes snacks fall down for me.
this thread has made me realize I hang out under a lot of bridges. maybe I should mention this to my shrink.
and finally, mighty trestle
What's the weirdest thing you've come across while out? Have you had any strange experiences? Any creepy abandoned places?
bamp. i want spooky stories this is october damn it
I'll be camping alone over the next few days so hopefully something interesting happens, I'll post pictures while out there if I'm able to.
