Pretty great. It's going to be really clear tomorrow and I traded shifts so I can get some morning skiing in.
I'm ok. I can tolerte winter for another couple weeks. By march I'm absolutely batshit crazy and usually it doesn't become spring-like until late april, unless we get lucky. I also just lost my job so, bring on the bleak. Th-thanks for asking OP.

Forecast says it's ~40 right now which means it's actually about 30-35.

I'm looking for a general good durable multipurpose boot preferably 8 inches and waterproof as it snows most of the year where I live. What are some good boots or brands for light hiking or camping/ walking long distances for women? Pic unrelated

There aren't many women on this board. So maybe some men's boots can be recommended and you can then find matching women's pairs.

I love my Merrell boots, and they have good winter ones. Merrells website has a sale today on winter boots.
Thanks I'll take a look at merrel, I thought of buying mens boots before but not many are made small enough I wear a size 6 in womens so in mens I'd need a size 4 or so
This, most of the same brands that get recommended for men also make women's boots. Merrell, Vasque, scarpa, etc.

Your best option is to go try some on and find the one that best fits your foot shape.

What are some /out/ activities that I can partake in while at college in an urban area? Campus and the surrounding area has very little green space so I'm kinda out of luck.

Make yourself an indoor garden then take care of your plants. It's very calming and peaceful .
Also a great idea to plant some air cleansing plants like snakes tongue , pot mums or bamboo palm .

Urban exploration after hours is always fun. Just beware of Pakis, Arabs,security guards and gangster niggers who will try to bother you .
good idea thank you

Trying to get all of your criteria in that price range is a bad idea, sorry. Post your local craigslist I think.

Nice picture, by the way

Also, /n/
in that price range for a new bike I mean
I already looked up my local craigslist, full of overpriced beat up crap.

I'll probably go to performancebike, they are a cycling retailer near me. They might have on the floor deals, but from what i've seen online, there's roughly ~12-15 models in my under $500 price range on their website,

My main problem is I have no idea what's the difference between all of them since I really don't do bikes.

5 KB,
So I'm going skiing (with lessons) for the first time and I need the following:

ski googles
ski pants
ski jackets (maybe, I already have a very warm winter jacket; a bit bulky though)
face wrap/ wind breaker

I dont have a huge budget; I'm aiming for around $300 total, but want to aim for the best-bang-for-you-buck price range.

any help?

The jacket, pants and goggles are what you should spend the most money on.
polyester silvers
Without knowing your locale there is little way to help you other than find a bunch of internet/amazon purchases.
Most areas have a salvage store. Ocean State Job Lot, Big Lots, etc You can typically pick up ski bibs for dirt cheap. May not be great quality but are certainly good enough to learn in. Basic black ftw.
Weather is a huge factor. I can go skiing in a turtleneck one day, light shell another, full parka another, trash bag over lining in the rain. Done it all.
For learning goggles aren't critical...

(8) Stupid olive prunings I took in late September still show no roots. Added a willow stick from the garden because it apparently encourages root growth in other cuttings, but it only developped roots itself and is sprouting massively. Also added more privet cuttings 2 weeks ago (but I know they take forever), as well as a cypress one a few days ago, let's see how those will do

Hi /out/

I occasionally browse this board in order to just read up on some of your experiences and knowledge.
Im pretty much a noob to the outdoors although I've been on short hikes a lot.
The most serious was hiking to the top of mt tammany at the delaware water gap.
I got no experience with camping, and I just aim at being able to spend a night and two sunlights outdoors (preferably around Appalachian area, like ny or pa). I bet I'm talking for a lot of other noobs here who just lurk and have minuscule experience like I do.

just do it. go out, make camp and go to sleep. have a possible exit, replace gear and methods if they don't work.
awesome movie.
Another thing noobs are worried about is gear quality.
Tents for example; how cheap is too cheap?

it's holding back my ambition

Are ponchos viable during winter where it snows heavily (6")?

They look super comfortable.
31 replies and 5 images submitted. Click here to view.
I have never tried a poncho but I think there's a reason no one wears ponchos up here in northern countries.
A jacket blocks cold wind and keeps warm air around your body. With a poncho like that in your pic, warm air escape out to the sides.
It could perhaps be viable if you have some really good wool layers underneath, but it still seems like a bad choice to me.
Ponchos look cool af if that's what you're looking for then go for it.
Ponchos were designed to be portable shade. They were open to provide air flow but still keep the body shielded from the heat of the sun. Then, they could be a blanket at night. So, they're better for the desert than for wintery places.
