per person per man? wtf is this?
And if i follow your equation, with 3l per degree over 25°C per day i would need to drink 15l of water when it's 30°C which isn't even that hot, or 45l when it's 40°C which i think isn't even remotely possible to drink in a day, that's like half of a big dude's body weight...

I was recently looking into buying a pair of boots that will last years of 3 season abuse. Lots of rough terrain, primarily rocks and forestry. I came across an article of some dude saying that he swapped his hiking boots for straight up tennis shoes. Is he retarded or is he onto something?

>>847632
Over the course of 40+ years I've found that sneakers feel better and walk better than boots. The only times I've twisted my ankle was when I was wearing boots (couldn't walk on it for an entire month, fucking sucked). The only times I had to wear boots was when I needed steel toes and steel plates in the soles for safety reasons. Other than that, boots have not once helped me more than ordinary sneakers. Boots give me more blisters though, seemingly due to the fact they are not as pliable as sneakers.

I went on literally one good hike ALL summer because I can't step outside without sweating to death, dying of headaches, and getting eaten by these giant murder flies. Does this make me a failure?

I went at the Calvaire d'Oka last week. It's alright. Easy stuff. You can always hit Chemin d'Olmstead on Mont-Royal, right in the center of the city. Pretty close to the city you can find monteregian hills standing in the middle of the St-Lawrent plains. The mountains are a chain of ancient lava reservoir that never exploded and cooled down over a hundred million years. When the glaciers melted, all the sediments was washed away and the hard rock stayed there.

If you go north, you can find taller mountains on the Canadian Shield. You can also find mountains...

I've been thinking of doing this in Canada a lot lately. I'm just not feeling modern technological society on the whole. I'm happiest when I'm outdoors a lot. Here, we have crown lands, state owned tracts that aren't private, but aren't administered park land.

Same for most game dogs. The ones that defend a home or are really tiny tend to hang around. Also the very smart breeds hang around. I've had a few beagle mutts, the instant they are in the woods they are yipping and barking, running around like they are trying to tie the biggest knot in the world (chasing rabbits) and end up 1-2 hills away. German Shepherds stay with me the entire time.

american labs are good for birds/retrieving. also good for companionship and hiking (I suppose. they can get pretty big, and long hikes can beat up joints). Not good for herding.

I do like labs.

Just got these Asolo boots after being a long time Zamberlan fanboi. Their soles are harder and I suspect will last longer as a result.

What about hiking sandals? Is there such a thing? I'm gonna go hiking in Peru, and I sweat profusely if it's above 15 degrees Celsius and I'm wearing anything more enclosing than sandals.

Would this work?
Those mini steam-engine toys can spin quite fast, im positive it could produce some energy, at least enough to charge small devices...

With power banks and solar chargers super affordable these days, this one seems gimmicky as shit. So I need to pack candles, and a little motor that's probably fairly fragile, and maybe a wind screen for the whole contraption (which also doesn't work when it's raining)

If you need more than a 20kmah power bank while /out/ for a week, you're doing it wrong.

The only reason I bring my phone/power bank us because I love quiet music when I make camp and sit by a fire. Especially if friends are with me.

That is a very dumb ass plan, like full retard man. They spin fast because they ain't doing shit for work. A steam engine would work, but you'd have to scale it up to the point where it wouldn't be nearly as fucking portable. Even then it would be pretty fucking inefficient since you are doing three stages of conversion, each with energy loss. If you want to power your faggy ass faggot shit inawoods with something portable there are a few ways. Portable solar, hydro, or even human electric generators. I don't know how well they work, but they sure as shit will work better than that crap.

Dress well and accordingly, your well being is directly proportional to how well you layer and the quality of your clothes.

Always bring a good outdoors coat for when you stop, or even one of those fancy canada goose parkas.

Bring a good reliable axe or big knife to chop small logs for fire

Bring many lighters and maybe matches and the ferro rod.

Always eat before sleeping.

If your fingers are freezing even with gloves on, try covering your face.

Always wear good sunglasses...

Hypothetically speaking, would it be possible to climb down 10 stories of rope out of your window? How much would this rope cost? How long would it take to get all the way down?
