What's the desert like, /out/?

It seems a little alien and almost mystical, like if you spent the night in a cave there, you might feel like you're on another planet.

I'm from Minnesota though, so maybe I'm just mistaking an overheated sandbox for exotic adventure.

Either way, I'd like to visit one sometime. Maybe just something as simple as a weekend at a hotel and taking public transit to a nice place to wander around for a few hours.

Should I do it? Or should I spare myself the next 10 years of trying to get the sand out...

I have a weird relationship with the desert. Whenever I'm in it, I want to leave. But whenever I leave, it doesn't take too long for me to feel drawn back to it.

That being said, some deserts are much better than others.
Deserts are magical places. Go in the spring with some friends, camp out, and go hiking. You'll never forget it.
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.

Probably the most intense pure wilderness survival movie I have ever seen.

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...

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.

Total snorefest.

If Billy suggests you play "hide the pickle", don't fucking do it. Ask me how I know.
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.

try camping more and fantasize less

also on a less derogatory note. what hip flask is that?
It's a bugout bag that I keep fairly near to me at all times. I already have all my casual camping gear in another couple of bags, for the most part.

As for the hip flask, it's apparently an "ajmer stainless steel 6oz" that I got at a flea market for $5. It has 2 separate containers. I keep 100 proof vodka in both
thanks man. il look it up

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.

>implying it can trace me when I leave no trace
but why would they attack the hammockers? we're like the elves of the camping world. we are one, at peace, with the all the creatures of nature
Hammockers girdle trees. That's not cool, plus all the hydrocarbons used in making hammocks cause global warming

He's still doing new episodes of survivor man.
I've always seen him as a businessman. He does what his audience wants. Can't say I'm disappointed, but I wish he did the thing that made him a celebrity. The bigfoot series was bullshit.

I hope he is.

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?
202 replies and 44 images submitted. Click here to view.
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.
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.

they are brilliant and Scarpa is a solid brand, so personally if pick the Scarpa but thats just because ive never ownedor held any of the other brands
Are those Scarpa whaterproof?

Thing with the ones on offer is that they are not waterproof, but as far as I understand you can make them waterproof with treatments over the leather.

Carrying a black powder revolver for innawoods activities? I'm thinking about carrying my 31 caliber Remington pocket pistol. Any experiences?
17 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
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...

how weak we talking here? Could I at least kill a person with it at 10-15 yards?
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.

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.
