Been meaning to order some sam splints for use in my pack. They're not the most ideal form of splint, but the flexibility makes for easy storage and versatility in molding into shape for various body parts.
You know, I actually do wish there were a fitting board for discussing / sharing ideas about decorating and comfy-fying your nest. As much as I love being /out/, it's great to have a neat place to return to.
How far was him from civilization? Re-watching the movie now and there's no way to get way from the idea of the freedom that an /out/ journey like his can bring to someones life.
It's the ultimate cliche but the life it's also the same thing. Born, Live and Die, the only certain things in life. Yeah, he died alone, in the cold, with pain, but in the end he still perdures. His history, his thoughts, his free spirit that can be found in everyone who loves the nature and the /out/doors,
>>655299 He overestimated his abilities, sure. But he never had any intention of having a career or family, he despised commercialism and wanted to die alone in the woods. Probably not so quickly, but still. He also lived more during the two and a half years that he traveled than most cubicle dwellers will in their entire lives.

I'm considering building a garden in my backyard, just a simple square design probably. It will be used for tomatoes, green onions, cucumbers, and other similar things. Maybe something for growing chili's too. Any suggestions are welcome.
Any paleos on /out? Professional, amateur, incidental, whatever.
Pic related was my first good find. Some articulated mosasaur vert from pierre shale beds near Rapid City. Been back on the property a few towns, we've found tons of fish, plesiosaur, diving birds and sea turtles. Definitely prefer field work to lab work
>>654902 not really but I've found some ammonites fishing. Some other fisherman found an entire t-rex skeleton in a place where I fish some years ago after some flooding. Basically embedded in a cliff wall. Generally where I fish is a very fossil rich area.
Ok so I after spending a lot of years playing vidya I want to get out more but having had photography as a hobby I kind of sense that all the gear that outdoor stores try to sell you might be a bit uncessesary
What I'm considering buying >outdoor pants all I have are tight jeans and they're just not comfy enough for hiking do I need to buy an outdoor brand or would a pair of work cargo chinos suffice?
>boots I have a pair that are very warm and comfy, but they're not by an outdoor... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
For day trips, you shouldn't need much beyond extra layers, a first aid kit, your camera and any extra lenses or whatever you need, a knife and some cord and maybe a tarp if you're really scared about getting lost, and a raincoat and backpack to hold it all in. If you're sticking to a pretty beaten and established trail system (like 90% of the ccfpd if you're near chicago like me), a map and compass shouldn't be necessary.
I don't really know what to tell you about pants, because i've worn slim jeans on day trips and been fine, but something... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>654718 You mean, going out at the morning and getting back the same day?
Man, you need absolutely nothing. Get a 1L plastic bottle of water and a sandwich it an old bag, and you are set. If you are not following a trail, add a map. You don't need anything else.
>outdoor pant Fuck that. Yes, a jeans is fine. It used to be the clothes of sailors, lumberjacks and miners. Velvet pants are good too. Modern technical clothes are better, but for a day hike, you don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Just like the title says. From 20 to about -40 F, are there any viable alternatives to using a sleeping bag?
I was reading up on Surplus color weather gear and someone was saying that the Lv7 ECWCS trousers and jacket could be worn instead of using a sleeping bag because they are rated to -40. Theoretically this would allow you to get up and see what that dump was quicker, and they pack smaller than most comparably warm sleeping bags.
-this is assuming you are sleeping in a 4 season tent, with a reflective space blanket beneath you to bounce your heat back... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>654599 You have to be extremely careful about wearing clothing while sleeping in very cold conditions. It is very easy to cut off circulation while you are sleeping and have very bad frostbite set in. Something as simple as socks that are a bit too tight can do this and you can end up losing toes. This can happen even in -40 equipment simply because there's nothing heating it when the circulation is too low or cut off.
