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?
it feels good to have deciduous and conifer + mixed forests within 100km of my home
I bought that exact pad, not kidding. It was really comfy but huge and heavy, so I was using it car camping. It was a massive static shock magnet. I kept shocking my gf, like I'd simply move around on it and it would build enough charge and I'd poke her and it would create a zap, kinda fun but got annoying after a while
I use a cot to keep the bed from leeching heat and sleep naked in a Kelty 0 degree bag. The shell doesn't have any sort of insulation and I don't use a heater. That set up has been comfortable down to about 10 degree nights in the desert but don't forget to piss before you undress and bed down. As long as your set up includes a good bag, separation from the ground, and a wind break then everything else is secondary.
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.
The general formerly known as /lcg/ LARP Containment General edition.
This general is an effort to consolidate topics generally considered to be “LARP” on boards including /out/, /an/, /k/, /diy/, /pol/, and others:
Some examples of topics:
-Where to buy land
-Running away from home
How dare you! You need to leave!
Lol really do u think we are not the same people on pol and b?
You like asparagus that much? Maybe set aside a place for the "three sisters" corn, string beans, and squash, who are grown together and compliment each other
Well that explains why everyone idolizes youtubers and nobody actually goes outdoors
Look into Joel Salatin’s method of farming chickens, it may give you some ideas. Use a chicken tractor so the chickens are moving often and getting fresh grass/bugs, and their manure is fertilizing the land.
Well /out/, it's that time of year again.

Nice. I hope there's a good snowpack early in the season. I just love snow. I'm almost tempted to drive my old-ass suburban out there just to drive in some snow.
It can be hit or miss in December, but the later in the month you go the better your odds will be.
Climbing General #20
A place to talk about climbing in any aspect (trad, sport, bouldering, aid, alpine, etc).
Rock Climbing is a dangerous sport that can cause loss of life, limb, eyesight, or sanity.
Tell us about your current project, Anon.
Each triangle is steel reinforced has a set of custom heavy duty hinges that can connect to another triangle with the same side length and lock at any angle. The structure itself is strong enough to climb on it but I need to attach some rope to the top to prevent wobbling. Building a structure like this takes about an afternoon which is a bit of work but much better than starting from scratch. I'm also planning on building a couple more triangles if I end up liking the way it works.
Can you give us a shot of the back of the wall? Don't quite understand the setup
>>2219602 >chasing indoor grades
It's rainy now though
I took my Shimarin /out/ today.
had a very pleasant day. were you /out/ today?
How's the ventilation in that pack?
I was out last night with my Shimarin too
Have you guys ever smelled cum in the woods? There have been multiple times when walking through an area, and suddenly it smells like someone is trying chloroform me with a cum rag. I mentioned it to a friend once and she agreed the woods smelled like cum, so I don't think I'm crazy.
Ginkgo also smells like that.
there's a bunch of trees that smell like cum
my town planted them all up and down main street so now the whole place reeks like a cumrag every spring lmao
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?
>>2230445 >I’ve seen two ghosts clear as day
I saw a floating six legged levitating dog at Mud Lake in door county about 10 years ago. Then I saw a ghost child at the rock Island graveyard about 6 years ago
Both times had witnesses who saw the exact same thing
Sorry bro,but an ayy lmao fucked you in the ass
prolly just some Elves pass thru. Most never see them. you were lucky.
Stay away from the lake. You need to go to the lighthouse to get answers. If you get attacked by people covered by shadows, point direcly at them with your flashlight then shoot them. Good luck Alan.
I'll be going on a 4 or 5 day hike, no civilization and lot of walking
What's your favorite food to take on trips like these? I'm thinking of grabbing two of pic related but that's only 3000 calories, I need to fill in the remaining 7000 what do?
"Food that does not require cooking" I think that is sad but to each is own I guess
I don't really have an option. My bag is already full as it is, there's zero chance I could fit a butane burner in it. I also can't start a campfire because I'm going into the chernobyl exclusion zone so I can't risk being spotted with a campfire that's seen from miles.
Make shure to chew the gum it's a mild laxative otherwise you're going to have VERY solid stools!
/out/ Questions that don't deserve their own thread
Anyone know any good resources on picking a place to go /out/ im planning on going out with some friends for a few days but im worried im going yo go on some private property or run in to people, i just wanna go where im not going to find anyone for miles
There's been a steve climber sighting, everyone on high alert
What’s the best way to harvest all the fatwood from an entire dead pine? I could only harvest one branch(all the other ones are at the top of the tree) and it’s a nice deep orange, so I want to cut it down and get all the heartwood.
Jackets don’t cover your legs
ponchos dont really either

There's not a whole ton of information online about the most mountainous, remote sections of states like West Virginia and eastern Kentucky.
Pennsylvania and far-Western Virginia have a bit more info on them - but still there's plenty of trails that exist only on topo maps and its unclear if they are still usable. Do you have any suggestions for lesser known destinations in this resplendently beautiful area?
bumpy for more secret spots please!
waiting on the trail cams to take new screencaps
have any screencaps yet ?
usually you do when you bump
