Hey guys portubro here, I have a I'm thinking about going to northern Spain during January for a couple of days to do /out/ stuff. Any toptier locations that I should take in account? Places where I can camp without problems?
I thought about going to Picos de Europa but it's a bit more far from the border than I would like to drive... but I guess I can drive to there if it's the very best place to see. I've been to Coruna before and places in Galicia would be perfect if you know some spots.
Anyways, as I said I can drive to Asturias or Cantabria... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Has /out/ read this book? I just finished reading it and would recommend it to other outdoor enthusiasts. It's about this women and her friend who left society to live off the land out in the Pacific Northwest. The idea is nothing new, alot of /out/ types dream of doing this but few actually spend more than a few days or maybe weeks. These people were out there for a good year and a half or so. What did you think?
>>650138 Circumstances arnt to interesting to be honest, they kind of just wanted to do it. They had a pretty good mix of gear including some modern stuff, especially at first, but intended on living as primitive as possible. By the end they found a balance somewhere in the middle of modern and primitive. All their firemaking was done by hand. They also made bows, spears, fishing hooks, traps, etc like the natives used to and, other than a few treats from people they met, all their food came from the land. It was quite the accomplishment... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
There was an /out/ film thread and there was one film mentioned quite a lot that I forgot the name of and was planning to watch. The thread 404'd and isn't in the archive anymore. Anyone remember what it was? Got some names or other film recommendations?
>>649987 If you want long slow cardio burn for endurance, hump it out to Marcy and make a run at the great colouir or some of the ice routes on the back side facing feldspar etc. Also just simply summitting and going car to car in reasonable time is good conditioning. Climb trap dike, Colden colouir, NF Gothics (same deal as trap dike, do it light and push and try to keep car to car in less than 12hrs) Jump over to Poke-O and climb the longer ice routes over there. I did a 24hrs of climbing marathon w a buddy, we started... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Do I need a 4 season tent if it's just cold as balls but not much snow where I plan to camp? Most things I see about them mention that they're good for shit tons of snow, but if I have a good -20 bag or similar, are they that important?
>>649940 4 season tents serve a few purposes, but they don't necessarily keep you "warmer. these tents typically have sturdy poles, thicker material, less open venting (less mesh net material to let in blowing snow) and stronger tie down points. They're designed for winter, this usually means heavy winds, heavy snow loads. Sometimes 4 season can be known as mountain or mountaineering tents. However, the kind of tent you use in winter depends on the location and weather where you are playing. Below tree line... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>649978 Average snowfall for where I plan to camp is less than half an inch a day in the winter, like I said it just gets stupid cold because lol mountains. Thanks for the info, so if I'm smart about where I pitch the tent for wind and have a good rainfly I should be good?
Lakes by me don't look like they will freeze over this winter so in lieu of ice fishing I may get out in the canoe. Water will still be 35ish degrees and very lethal. Anyone canoe in the winter on water this cold? Anything I should know? What safety precautions do you take in winter?
>>649921 Dry suit not recommend, dry suit is mandatory, lot of solo sea kayaker stories of them going hypothermic trying to get back into the boat. Keep a bilge pump w you and a paddle float (if solo boating to get back into your canoe,) Leave a RAD plan w folks, (route, area, destination) w a turn around time, worry time, call 911 time Properly fitted type 3 pfd Thermos w hot drink (if you go in, you'll need to rewarm internal and w exercise,) extra layers, >>649929 Nope....

>>649909 Haven't read that one, but his Guide to Nature Observation and Tracking was pretty good. Also Tawrell'sCamping & Wilderness Survival and Army Survival Field Manuals. The Barefoot Architect is good for /out/buildings. And Thoreau, John Muir and Aldo Leopold are good for getting in da mood.
You like hunting & trapping and fishing? You like woodworking and living off the land? You like a good hunting dog? You like having your next neighbor 50 miles away? You like being your own boss? You like living free with the government giving not a singe fuck about you? Or maybe you just dream about it?

The thread last time seemed to be fairly popular so I figured if people were interested this could become a regular thing. Feel free to put in your favourite /out/ films below and discuss what you did and didn't like.
I asked about Into the Wild last time and I'm pretty glad I watched it. It wasnt entirely focused on the outdoors but it did it pretty well.
On my watchlist I have Jeremiah Johnson and Dersu Uzala, mentioned in the previous thread. Any thoughts on those two? I have heard Jeremiah Johnson is pretty good but havent really heard much else. Also feeling like watching a western. I havent seen any of the For A Fistful of Dollars films, they are classics but are they /out/?
>>649859 I am also maintaining my recommendation of Stalker. The slow pacing may turn people off but I found it very introspective, and the scenery was nice too. Not a thrilling film but if you have the time it's a nice one to sit back and take in
>>649858 This is a list of films not necessarily about going /out/, but there are certain /out/ elements in all of them.
Dead Man, Moonrise Kingdom, Papillon, Valhalla Rising, Lord of the Flies, Antichrist, The King is Alive, The Blue Lagoon, Picnic at Hanging Rock, Fitzcarraldo, Stand by Me, Ashes of Time.
>>649860 If you like the slow pace in Tarkovsky's films, then I'll recommend you Let Each One Go Where He May. When I watched it, it reminded me of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Posted a video of a guy clearly illegally snagging salmon while fly fishing. Fact: when youre making a video about fishing you don't put your body between the fish and the camera to hide the fact that you're removing a hook from the dorsal fin or back of salmon
Fact: salmon rarely take a lire or fly when they have been spawning several days
these fat fucks are trying to profit from illegally snagging and/or flossing salmon
Bullsharks are well over 3m at maturity and travels up rivers to spawn. Maybe you should reconsider your hobby if you scared of sharks. They can smell your fear and if you flinch or show any weakness they will attack.
