821 KB,
A few days ago I went on a camping trip with a few friends and we decided to play some camping games. Games like Black Magic, with a really stupid solution.

Then one of the guys clapped in his hands a few times, slapped his knees and tapped his shoulders and said that he just "clapped 3 horses". Then he did some other combinations and said that he clapped 1 horse that time. Any of you know the solution to this game? It's been cracking my brain for days.

Pic unrelated.

So I'm thinking the claps and taps are irrelevant. I think how many words the person says after they do the claps and stuff is the answer to how many horses there are. So the guy said "Clapped 3 horses" which is 3 words.
Make sense?

Good shoes/boots.
Something comfortable with excellent traction.
Actual footwear will vary by season/location/terrain.

A good backpack.
Again comfortable, but sturdy. If you're just doing day hikes, something like you'd use for school.

A good knife.
I mean something really good, k bar tier.

If you slip down a ravine and break a leg- the difference between making a splint to stabilize your fractured femur and crawling out or just laying there unable to move and dying could be the choice in what knife you bought.

I went out camping along the River Tay recently and I found a lot of granite chunks with what I think is malachite running through them. Now I've got one of the chunks sitting next to a polished bit of malachite and a piece of copper on my shelf. There's a beach next to Culzean castle I used to spend a lot of time combing when I was younger, you'd find some nice stones there quite often. Mostly agate though.

I'm hoping to take a trip to the Cairngorms soon to look for some Cairngorm smoky quartz.

Tbh I don't know their exact pricing, but just get a super basic thermarest. Mine's been great for the past 10 years
>>
>>851815
I recently got a thermarest prolite plus, large size, for 80 dollars on sale (normally 110). I like it very much. They are definitely not the cheapest for the performance but they are reliable and comfy.
>>
>>851835
The prolite plus is a great mat for lightweight insulation, probably the warmest self inflating for the price. But its worth splashing out on the mat - i used to have a cheap vango trek mat and 700 fill down bag, but i spent the 130 odd an x-lite and for everything but scottish winter i use a 300 fill bag (would recommend rab ascent 300. Fairly heavy but durable as shit for down). Worth getting a good bag, but for warmth and weight an extra 50 quid on your mat will get you a lot further than 50 on the bag.
The amount you spend on the tent ahould reflect how comfortable you want to be, both hikimg with it and sleeping in it. A fivers worth of tarp is pretty light but a horrible night unless its gorgeous out. Similarly a hi gear tent is gonna be significantly heavier than the msr or wild country tent it copied.

So I found this bird in the road a few hours back. I was certain, had he stayed there, he would get dead. Originally I was riding my bike, and got close to him thinking he was a pine cone or something. Turns out he was a bird of course. So I looked at him to see what his deal was. As far as I can make out, he can move and chirp, but he doesn't move far, or well, and has a broken wing. Mind you, this is all assumption from a guy that knows shit all about birds.

He keeps staring up at this tree and chirping, and that's just it. I tried slicing open a water bottle...

You're going to want a 3 person tent to "comfortably" fit 2 people in it. Especially if you're thinking of a girl, because you're both going to want to face the same way, and torso/Arms take up a wider space than legs.

I rock a 2 person tent when I go solo. I'm 6'3" and have to find the sweet spot angle to keep my feet or head from touching the tent wall, and collecting condensation on my down sleeping bag.

Other than tall problems, my tent is perfect size. I keep all my gear that I don't want wet in the extra space,...

Fuck off, /int/.

But in all seriously, Scho-Ka-Kola is good, lightweight, keeps you awake if you need it too. Been keeping Jerry awake on stag since the 30s.

Why do most people hike fast as fuck like the goal is just finishing the trail?

This is why I really don't like going /out/ with groups...I like to take my time and stop and go off trail to look at birds or wild flowers or other things. I really don't get the point of hiking just for the sake of covering distance, but maybe someone can explain?

Same, i hike alone so i don't have to worry about catching up to someone or them catching up to me.

While I also prefer to hike slowly some people utilize trails as a form of cardio which is why some people run on trails

Why is sleeping outside with no mat so bad?

I just slept outside in a sleeping bag with no mat and it feels like my inner organs hurt. I definitely shouldn't do this again, but what is actually the cause?

Is it the ground draining my body warmth or the irregularities of the ground that affect me so much?

You've slept with a pillow on a soft-ass mattress or mat every night of your life, your body (read: muscles) can't handle not having it.

Weeks later and they're still a huge problem. You cannot be outside for more than a minute before they attack. We should be having some 50-40 degree nights by this time of the year, but it's just been heat and rain and humidity. Feels like got dang florida...

Last years winter was pretty mild. Would not be surprised if it's going to be another snowy one. Cannot wait till these buggers are dead.

Sooooo, where are you located and uhh, what's your goddamn point?

I am currently /out/ in rim country Arizona. No mosquitoes and hardly any bugs. Do bugs hibernate for the winter once the nights hit the low 60s?

in the NE US

there are too many mosquitoes to go out
I am sad

>>854899
according to the internet, 50s are supposed to slow them down and much colder to completely kill them off

a week with no rain would be a big help

Sittin at home enoying the weekend, thinking about how chatterbaits continue to be a meme. I wonder where I should go and not get bites on the chatterbaits today. On the upside, the water should start cooling off bit by bit in the next couple months. The largemouth I got last night was bretty gud as far as these small lake shore fish go. I need to find where those knoife fish are at.

Pastebin and Imgur. Thinkin about picking up...

What are good places to find amber? The only time I can remember finding some myself was in a playground climbing frame, where there was lots of amber in the wood and you could get the pieces with some fiddling.

I collect them for fun, I don't expect to find any fossils in them or anything.

I dunno but I heard the opaque (non see-through) ones are the most valuable in money terms. If you find any then try to sell it.

Where I live you can find amber on the beaches by the sea. Because amber is so light it is most likely to stay ashore if it's wrapped in/trapped by seaweed, that way the waves wont carry it to sea again.
So, go to your nearest beach after a very windy day, and turn over the seaweed you can find and you might be lucky.

Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna have some amazing specimens, the best in the world actually- well worth the trip.

whats your point?

>>854426
probably not a great idea. static ropes are really bad for descents/ climbing.
>>
>>854513
Paracord isn't really static, it's nylon and has a minimum stretch requirement for when your parachute opens. It's a bad idea to descend with because the safe working load for a single strand is 55 lbs.
