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...

Anon, por favor. Plus, Spain had general elections yesterday, so they're either botellón partying, or crying deep in the woods while eating some empanadas de queso.

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?

Depends on the gear she brought and the circumstances of her tramp for me to have any interest.
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...

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?

Seen any conditions reports on trap dike or north face of Gothics?
I used the dacks as a training ground for bigger stuff out in the PNW (Baker, Rainier, shucksan, etc)
I had a friend tell me a few weeks ago that the trap dike was thin but doable. That was before the warmup though.

To be honest I bet both are an utter scratch fest right now.

Mind telling me what dacks routes in particular ended up being good training ground? Thanks
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.

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?
19 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
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...

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?
No. You will be miserable because its fucking cold outside and you will be cold. Report back on your suffering dumbass

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?

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.

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/?

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
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.

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...

These douchenozzles from Michigan Gone Wild

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

How do I avoid being eaten by a shark while spearfishing?

If I stay close to the shore there's only small fries.

If I go out into the ocean I become the prey.

It's illegal to spear fish in just about every river around here. And those that do allow it have murky waters. I live in Sydney, btw. So if anyone knows any good spots, do tell.

>no sharks in rivers

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.
