I will never forget Arizona. The colorful rock formations, the dry, dusty atmosphere, the hot orange-tinged sand. You find cacti and shrubs everywhere, and tons of desert mice. But the greatest part of it is looking up at that endless sky at dusk. The way the sunlight bounces off the pillars of rock are breathtaking. It gets better at nightfall. There is no light pollution out there, especially in the northeast bu the Indian reservations. I have never seen so many stars in my entire life. It all comes together to make you feel so small, but appreciative of the beauty surrounding you.
I was pretty hype for it but having seen it I honestly don't know if I liked it. I understand not having the screen time for the southward journey, you have to make some concessions converting to a screenplay, but Iñárritu could have played out much more of the survival drama if he hadn't blown all his screen time on artsy shots of rivers and trees and dream sequences. In the screenplay they went with, Glass gets mauled by a bear and is more or less ambulatory within what feels like a few days, there's no sense of time or hardship with no doubt and it's...

>>661685 i agree with pretty much everything u said. it was beautifully realised but i wanted more of the survival part of the story - it left me feeling underwhelmed. i even watched it a second time to check i wasnt being overly critical. i guess the book just doesnt translate well into a movie.
Punke did his survivalist research, that's for sure. Every single step of every single thing Glass did to make fires and traps, etc. etc. on his long trek back to civilization after getting mauled by a bear is in excruciating detail in the blandest prose possible.
If any book could benefit from visual shortcuts and a condensing of action & time, it's this one. Should have just stuck with the movie.
OP this is why I always keep a fresh roll of pasta in my pack. Always good to find pasta themed to suit the occasion - urbex pasta for urbex nights, halloween pasta for autumn, return-from-the-grave pasta when there's been a recent passing, winter pasta for winter camping, etc.

Hey sc/out/s, can you guys give me some help with my bugout/survival bag? I know I'm missing quite a few things. Please rate and give advice and brands that fit the category. Things I need that are lightweight enough to hike in: >Foldable shovel >bolt cutters strong enough to cut through common locks, but also lightweight enough to hike a few miles with >I'm going to buy a coldsteel latin machete w/ sawteeth to replace this shitty stainless steel one

Some of you faggots are alright so don't go outside tomorrow, or ever, if you live in Idaho. Environmentalists have released weaponized mountain lions with two sets of teeth. They are trained to attack geo poopers, cairn kickers, hammockers and leave no trace fedoras.
What the hell happened to Les Stroud? Survivorman used to give me romantic feels, now he just whines about greenpeace stuff, what to frick??? Old age dementia? I guess one should never trust a canadian, "the first country to embrace multiculturalism". Pretty dissapointing I have to say, seeing my teenage idol turn red.
Why is the Prepper movement so fucking cringy? Don't get me wrong I'm all about people being ready and have some supplies if anything bad happens, but man, you go to youtube and 90% of the time will be some retard with out of the box gear, dressed like a fucking commando, spelling shit of their mouth.
Anyone feels the same or it's just me being a autistic cunt?
>>661271 No, you're right. A huge marketing has developed around the concept of "survival". Now, a lot of people believe they're in a zombie movie and spend fortunes in "tactical equipment", "ultimate weapon against X", "the ultimate survival bow which shot by himself and brings back the game". But there are a lot of really good channels on youtube. Just ignore the autistic warriors.
>>661271 Because you're sheltered and aren't used to rural, non-domesticated people. Whenever I watch videos of outdoors enthusiasts that aren't the gun loving red blooded type I think what a low test beta hipster cunt.
Don't forget that it will attract people with legit mental illnesses. I also see the logic in being somewhat surprised with supplies so I'm not saying every prepper is like that but crazy people are generally also paranoid.
If you can get something better (I.E. a modern handgun) - do it. If not, than bp can be good for scaring of animals, signaling and so on, although .31 cal is quite weak for most uses. .36 navy is generally considered the equivalent of 380 acp, which is the minimum recommended caliber for self defense. .31 will be weaker than that. Also BP revolvers are fairly unreliable - caps can jam up the action, not fire, misfire, chainfire... Generally if you live in a country where you can carry a better weapon - do it. If not - it looks mean, makes noise, can injure and potentially kill... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>661249 It will kill him alright, but most likely in the hospital, after a day or two of bleeding out and giving false reports about how you attacked him. Adrenalin works wonders and it is possible that a person will still have time to hurt you, even after being shot. That happens with a lot of modern handguns even in good calibers. Also self defense against people will most likely happen in 1-3 yards. And typically it takes 2-3 shots to stop a person (if he does not get scared away by the sight of the weapon.) For that scenario you need not only a good caliber, but quick follow up shots. So single action only revolver with an unreliable mechanism is not very suitable.
Hey /out/ this is a thread to outline your favorite Fish to catch, your favorite bait to catch them with and your favorite go-to techniques. I'm a big fan of dragging a baby brush hog through ruffage and shelter to make the largemouth's instinct strike. wbu?

I love fishing for catfish. I use chicken livers. I'll add several shot weights and make an easy cast out, keep the bail open, and wait. All that's left is setting the hook once line starts to spool off.
