>>659052 i never spent much time in florida. the blue ridge mountains start in upper georgia. i did some boy scouts stuff in tenesse and arkansas. sorry but i really don't know, i never spent enough time in florida itself. i bet there are some limestone outcrops that people climb around there. your best bet is to join a gym and ask, or get good with your google-fu.
I enjoy taking showers spanning multiple hours, and have noticed that I never get thirsty when in there. Clearly, sufficient amounts of water must be absorbed through the skin.
Is this principle applicable when going /out/?
Consider having an insulated water tank (a thermos, like one you keep coffee in) attached to each of your boots. The water would be body temperature so would not make you freeze, and it would also ensure you get hydrated enough when you're on long hikes. Drinking from a bottle would literally become unnecessary.

>>658482 4 season tents are designed for "all four seasons," so you would be able to use it in the summer too. It's a nylon cave that protects you from the elements, not much can go wrong. The main disadvantage would be the weight. Winter tents need to deal with snow-loading on the side walls and potentially the roof, so they are built extra strong, which results in extra weight and bulk.
Another, not so obvious, disadvantage is that winter tents are often made to minimize ventilation - if there's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What's up /out/ I'm lookin to get into backpacking. I've done a bunch of camping and hiking in my life along with other outdoor recreation like skiing and etc, but I'm now looking to get into a new outdoor sport that will really test my mind and body and i want to do some long hikes ( 5-6 days, lots of miles and maybe a thru hike someday if I like it enough.)
So I have two questions for you guys:
A: what are some great places to do said backpacking ?
B: what are some examples of gear you would all consider neccesary ?

>A: what are some great places to do said backpacking ? Well that obviously depends on where you live. If you're British like me, going to Scotland is best because of the much more relaxed wild camping laws.
Hello /out/ I'm gonna backpack and travel through India in about 2 weeks, I'm gonna buy a 60-70 liter backpack. What should I fill it with? Recommand me some useful gear from your experience preferably In India. Btw ducks from a ducks store in Amsterdam.
I'm in the jacksonville area. From LA. I used to love hiking the San Gabriel mountains back home. I think the parks out here are pretty boring. Just a bunch of flats trails through swampland. Anybody have any ideas of things that can wow me, make my heart rate go up and possibly generate some adrenaline for me? I like water too.
