Is snowshoeing a meme?
I just bought a pair of MSR snowshoes for cheap off craigslist cause it was too good a deal to pass up. What pants and boots should I wear to go snowshoeing? I assume a good wool base layer bottoms but what pants are best? Should I get snow paints? Do I even need waterproof pants if I just wear high gaiters?
>>1637607 >is snowshoeing a meme?
What a stupid fucking question. I swear to god I hate this inane website sometimes. Buch of goddamned hive-minded idiots.
snowshoeing is a meme, who would snow shoe when you can just go Cross country skiing instead?
>>1638910 >gets triggered >doesn't even make a reasonable defense for memeshoes
>>1637934 >>1637934 >>1637934
you snowshoe in the fall? with no snow?
Is hammock camping the superior way to camp in the winter /out/?
>gets you off the ground and above all the snow >no need for sleeping pads. just warm top quilt and underquilt. >tarp allows for more livable area to set up camp What do you guys think? I'm in the PNW and I'm debating trying hammock camping this winter. Is it a meme? Am I bamboozling myself? or it really superior to ground hugging on the cold ground?
Need to buy an Opinel from a shop in the UK, Decathlon no longer sell them, Where do I go?
Another cheap but "usable" knife will suffice too
Oh I'm fucking sorry for not knowing every single local brick and mortar tool shop in wherever OP is located.
Always wondered whether these are technically illegal in the UK because of the locking blade.
As the locking mechanism is not automatic and is subtle, I bet no police would realize it even has that feature. That makes Opinel a great knife for use in the UK (it's a great knife anyway)
>>1638567 >spend $8000 equipping a shop to replicate an $11 knife using garbage
don't get me wrong, if that's your hobby or livelihood and it's something you enjoy i'm happy you're happy. but as a solution to needing a simple knife it's retarded.
Same thing could be done with a budget of about $50, provided you own/know where to steal bricks from and don't care too much about your time.
>$30 for cheap Harbor Freight tier grinder >$10 for a hand saw and a shitty chink set of needle files >$10 for a bag of charcoal (not briquets)
Do you need a license to buy them?
Anyone here had a dicey run in with animals while /out/? Such as being stalked, attacked, approached or even harassed by something?
I've had a friend's cup get swiped by a raccoon. Another time I was on a trail and walked into a lone hiker who said he stumbled upon a mama bear with cubs, ended up getting charged by the mama bear (possibly a bluff charge, being a black bear and all, but could have been real considering the cubs). Mountain lions freak me out. One could be stalking you and you'd never know it. Pic unrelated, the opossums are bro tier.
This. Damn near stepped on a rattler. It was late ind the day and we were almost to our planned campsite, coming down into a canyon through tall grass by the water.
He rattled so hard he fell off the rock he was sitting on. Wasn't willing to move from that rock though. My partner had to go like 20 feet around through the grass.
Not the first time I got warned by one in that area, but a real close call.
I walked through a canyon littered with mule deer bones and the heavy with the stench of cat for about 3 miles once. Their favorite sort of place: a small stream, which is also the only water for miles, below a 5-10 foot rock wall from which they can jump down and ambush anything that bends down to drink.
Of course, this was around noon, so being cats the lazy fucks were almost certainly sleeping.
Coyotes are not dangerous in the slightest it's probably a good thing you don't solo camp.
Vultures once surrounded me in the desert, perhaps they thought I was dead man walking. It was pretty scary, they were big and were many. They started landing to the ground and just watched me.
Two times with rattle snakes. Both were just looking at me and warning me with their eerie sound. Once in the forest a big ass animal was walking down hill. It was night but the snow let me see its fur, prolly somekind of wolf.
What’d we do? Did we win the fashion cup?
With a Ranger's hat and shovel
and a pair of dungarees, you will find him in the midfield always sniffin' at the breeze. People stop and pay attention when he tells 'em to beware, 'cause ev'rybody knows that he's the Lead Prevention Bear. >Chorus: Chokey the Bear, Chokey the Bear. Prowlin' and a growlin' and a hittin' the air. He can throw a ball game and then take all the blame. That's why they call him Chokey, That was how he got his name. You can take a tip from Chokey that there's nothin' like a slip. 'cause they're good for kids to laugh at and they're beautiful to see, you just have to look around you and you'll find it's not a joke, to see what he'd be missin' that would be the fucking goal. >Chorus You can camp upon his goalline and he'll make you feel at home; You can run and hunt and score goals anywhere you care to roam. He will let you take the lead and pretend he's very smart, but don't you block his shots for he's a Choker in his heart. >Chorus If you've ever seen a final when a crowd is running wild, and you love the things within it like a mother loves her child, then you know why Chokey tells you when you see him running through, 'This time...I can score it.... its the least that I can do.' >Chorus
christ's wounds anon well done
Looking for a watch for /out/ but I'm also looking for taking it out ice fishing. Where I'm from this means the temperature could get to -20f (-28.8c)
while on my wrist it may not get there, the windchill while looking at the watch may get it really freaking cold. I'm looking at the Pathfinder PAG240-1 from Casio but I can't seem to find the operating temperature. I know the sensor only goes from 14 degrees to 104 or something, but not really any info on operating temp of the LCD. I know Casio also makes a Low Temp LCD watch but it doesn't have the options. Or is there another brand that is low-temp with lots of /out/ options? Gen watch threat too
Buttons are a bitch to press with gloves on though. IMO the only drawback
Perhaps, but my F91-W's buttons have a habit of getting accidentally pressed. I'd trade harder pressing for being able to trust that my chrono isn't gonna reset.
Suunto 9 Baro is the best mountaineering watch out there if you've got the money.
I've got that exact watch OP, and It's never failed me down to about -10F. Great watch, I really love it.
The blacks were never on this side of town years back
We used to have only red fox squirrels. A few years back the red fox were pushed out by the greys, which opened the doors for those filthy squiggers.
Probably a deadly galerina edition.
Don't honey mushrooms grow on soil? Those look like they could be galerina so I hope you didn't pick them.
Anyone can help me identify these two?
what's up with cute girls and them having a fascination with mushrooms? do i not realize something about them?
>>1638303 >Don't honey mushrooms grow on soil?
But yeah, his don't look like honey mushroom to me...
mushrooms look like dicks
Is motorcycle camping any fun? Been looking at a tenerae for a fuel efficient way to reach far away places to hike/camp
>inb4 fuck off to /o/, they cant stop fapping to sportbikes
That pic, I'm in heaven.
The ignorance in the post has given me cancer.
You sound like a glamper and I know you have never ridden in your life.
I've died a bit more inside looking at this knowing I'll never be able to do this.
A used bike is like 1000-3000$
If you've already got camping gear just strap it to the back and go my dude.
Motocamping is the way to go my dude. I will never give up for as long as I breathe. I absolutely love my strommy for life but wish I had something lighter, just as fast and durable that can pack alot of shit.
Help me out bros. :'(
Sorry, missed pic.
I have never been camping a day in my life and I'm in the process of joining an 18th century reenactment club where they camp out and shoot BP. Problem is their next campout is in two months and i have never camp out a day in my life much less with 18th century equipment. I feel like I'm a little over my head guys. I have no clue where to start on supplies.
>>1638532 >18th century equipment.
18th century equipment is soo inferior to Middle Earth equipment, you will surely suffer before you die.
Been subscribe to him for over but just didn't retain anything. Good reason for me to re-watch it all again.
I hope its going to be comfy
I know if I asked anyone about supplies they would give me everything they could and I don't want to burden but show I'm actually interested.
>>1638635 >I know if I asked anyone about supplies they would give me everything they could and I don't want to burden but show I'm actually interested.
But the chances of you actually bringing period 18th century gear, which most likely costs a small fortune and useful only for this hobby, and being able to set it up without any help are pretty much zero. You probably want a wall tent, similar to some of the offerings at
Check out Townsend and sons they have some cool stuff. Camping is chill especially with other people nothing to worry about.
jerked meat and cornmeal
birch bear and water
if he is with group then he probs gon be okai and comfy. unless he has no wool blanket, then he gon die.
