I don't go after bullet-point accomplishments. No matter how beautiful, deadly, challenging, and alluring Everest is, the Everest industry is revolting. I'd be happy to hike and see the Himalayas in general, but I'd stay away from all the Everest wankership. That's just me though. I'm one to get excited when I see a pretty stump in the woods but not care about the world's biggest/best/tallest whatever. Eh.
Plus now that green boots is gone there's nowhere to pee on the way up

So my friend wants to take me to climb Mt. Whitney, in around June. I've never climbed a mountain before, and was wondering what should I do to get prepared. I usually do weight training on weekdays, but I realize I will have to change that around to accommodate for this. Anyone here that can give advice on what to do?
Hey /out/, happy holidays first of all but I wanted to ask you guys for some kind of insight. I remember seeing a thread on this topic awhile back but want some more input. I helped kill, clean, gut, etc. A pig today to cook and eat for Christmas today and never done anything like this before. And to be come off as a edgy fuck but I really enjoyed it. I feel different as a person in a good way. Is this normal? I have respect for animal life and it shouldn't be wasted for the fuck of it but it was fun. So anyways I guess this could be a cleaning/processing/etc. Thread.

>>653032 I bought some fur from a place that supplied pelts and stuff and sewed it into the formerly itchy wool collar of my camp jacket. Very satisfying because it turned out better than something I could have bought with a very low price for the materials in my case.
I think this is part of being a real man. To be capable. I started doing my own little work on my car and it feels the same way. You ask why you pay someone else to do something you could do better and plus get the satisfaction of doing it.

>>653032 I grew up in the country. We raised goats, chickens, and turkeys for food. When you raise them, it's not as nice killing them. Sorta feelsbadman. But suddenly, cabrito! Then feelsgoodman. No feelsbadman part when hunting.
Hey /out/, I need a flashlight. I admittedly don't know much about flashlights. I searched ones I can get here in Canada and this is one that appealed to me for a few reasons. 1. 1000 lumens, it's very bright, but has low power modes as well. 2. Straight forward switch UI. 3. 18650 rechargeable batteries. 4. Strike face bezel that is not over the top conspicuous.
I work nightshift, usually start around midnight or 3am, and I walk to work. I also walk my gf to work or walks with me (we work in same store). Sometimes I get in situations where... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Thrunite have done a good job shilling their flashlights, but they seem to be quite good and affordable. I'm considering a TN12 and maybe some smaller one myself. If money isn't an issue I'd probably go for Surefire
I received a gift card for $150 for the North Face. I typically only really buy Arcteryx clothing, and most of my backpacks are for specific needs from other companies. What do I spend it on? I always thought TNF was a brand for rich people to pretend they do outdoor stuff.
>>652845 I've only owned dead bird, and I use it literally everyday. My rampart pants are my tech pants I wear at work. They have outlasted all my 5'11's and other brands typically recommended in my industry. I've climbed hiked and done other things in them. I get its expensive but I'm very happy with the quality and ruggedness of the products. If your saying TNF is equivalent and quality that's one thing, I just don't know, if your saying dead bird is shit, then I want to know what you think is good quality.
My VE-24 is almost 30 years old. you'll find that TNF gear holds up well. Some of the the clothes may be shit that hipsters buy just for the label. I'm curious what your specific backpack needs are; Sounds like an interesting /out/ story to tell. even so the sleeping bags & tents TNF makes are worth the money.
Stuff that's nutritious, non-perishable and maybe even a bit tasty. For warm climates this is my list:
- Sunflower seeds, probably half my caloric intake - Bread or for longer trips hardtack - Dried fruits (dates, peaches, sultanas etc) - Rice or oats if I can make a fire (I don't carry stoves or gas burners or whatever)
very simple and gets boring on 3-4 day hikes. What could I add?
i just got a puma bowie, I got the stainless steel version it was $100.00. Suprisingly not too much info on it online despite its popularity. What are y'all's thoughts on it? Pics and stories if you have them. Thanks for any help
