Hey /out/,
Was looking for a nice axe, figured, why not a more utility axe head?
>see pic

Idea was generally get a fire axe head. And get a handle for it so it can effectively double as nice walking stick. The pick is nice for climbing and digging adding to its usefulness greatly.

I don't hike where there are others around and general never see other people so I'm not worried about that. Thoughts?

Also general axe thread.

>use axe for walking stick
>chop off a leg
Oh, and let's use our moras as things to juggle with when we're bored.

No way that could end bad either.

You can slip innawoods and kill yourself with or without an axe, which you would be carrying anyways. May as well make it a walking stick so you don't slip.

Good use of space friendo

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.

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,

There is nothing stopping you from filling up your backpack and walking into the bush. (Unless youre married with kids, in prison or owe debts to Sicilians)

I always tell people my hitchhiking adventures and the first thing they say is "wow I wish I had the freedom to do that" and there is nothing holding them back but themselves

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.

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.
Where do you usually fish? I've heard there's some Cenozoic stuff on some kansas lake shores

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

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?

Try to wander as deep into the forest as possible to be safest from soceity

A pleb would tell you to bring a compass but its 2016 now!

Travel light
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...

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.

Fuck that. Yes, a jeans is fine. It used to be the clothes of sailors, lumberjacks and miners.
Velvet pants are good too.

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...

This stuff looks pretty hardcore:


Their normal stuff is -30F rated and their extreme stuff is up to -68F
That's actually a pretty nice sounding idea, considering I usually have to get up like 5 times when doing overnights.


Maybe not what you're looking for, but it's still a cool alternative.
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.

I'm not joking about this shit either.

Any sc/out/s use this?

Thinking of picking one up and just wanted to get the board's opinion first.

I know next to nothing about GPS btw.

Does your mtn bike helmet have a gopro on top, too?

Biolite much yet?
Why are you this mad?

Like I said, I know almost nothing about GPS units.

I just want something small and durable that I can use for brief hikes/shooting sessions in the woods so I can find my way back to my car. No multi-day outings or extreme hiking.
