>>817600 Is this a sound 3seasons /out/fit for multiday hiking/camping trips (New Zealand)? -thermal top and pants -cargo pants -merino flannel shirt -hiking boots, wool socks -pocketable waterproof jacket -shemagh, beanie, gloves Throw in a jacket and/or extra layers for colder times
>>817691 Terrain varies widely but all of the above essentially. Outside winter 0celcius might be the coldest and up to 35ish in summer if you're lucky. Fair amount of rain can occur anytime outside summer really
>>796550 Vermicelli & a tube of tomato paste (not a can) - Vermicelli cooks in 4-5 minutes, and a tube of paste will be thicker and more concentrated than a can, and has less trash to haul out. Make sure you also have a little plastic bottle of olive oil (easy to find a small plastic bottle at a dollar store). You can also bring a baggie of dry parmesan and spices.
Kraft Mac & Cheese - Ditch the box and put the noodles in a ziplock. Put the sauce in another ziplock with a teaspoon of skim milk powder. Use olive oil instead of butter. Plenty of other pasta side options as well.
Uncle Ben's Ready Rice - It's already cooked so all you have to do is boil the entire pouch for a bit. Make sure to tear a corner first. Don't use this as a staple because it's not particularly calorie dense. Chicken flavor with Tabasco is great.
Instant oatmeal. Brown sugar flavor is best because it's got more calories. Takes 2-3 packets to make a meal. You can also switch it up by using instant steel cut oats with brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins. Very filling, very calorie dense.
Idahoan Instant Mashed Potatoes. Really filling, and warms you right up. Kinda salty though, and you might want to break one package down into two meals using snack-sized ziplocks. You can also consider adding skim milk powder.
Individual foil packets of tuna, chicken salad, or chicken breast chunks if you can get it. There's also "Libby's Seasoned Beef Crumbles" which is an alleged ground beef packet that requires no refrigeration. All kinds of stuff you can do with these, like hamburger helper or trail tacos. Just open a corner of the packet and stick it in boiling water to warm it up. Might want to try it at home first because it might not agree with you.
Other things to experiment with would be smoked cheeses like gouda, and dry salami. Both should be stable enough to bring with you on the trail without refrigeration, but I personally haven't tried it.
If you don't want to cook, make nutella sandwiches with white flour tortillas. Nutella keeps for a month or so after opening with no refrigeration, and tortillas will keep for a week or more. Also GORP. GORP GORP GORP. If there's a bulk store nearby you can make your own for reasonably cheap.
I'm on my second set of replacement waist buckles for my 70L hike pack. The last one I ordered from Sea to Summit. Being that the waist of your pack is so important to weight distribution you'd think that they could construct one out of say aluminum instead of nylon. Anyone have any advice for a better quality replacement buckle? Getting tired of replacing these nylon ones.
>>834486 Drive north into the UP in Michigan and hit Pictured Rocks. That's an awesome trail but pretty far. Where you're at, there are tons of shorter trail in southwest Michigan. I would bet there are things in Wisconsin too but I've never hiked there. How far are you willing to drive?
These are blooming all over a tree on my lawn. The small branches with blooms are fuzzy, the rest of the tree is not. In previous years, the entire tree was fuzzy and the blooms were less defined and looked more like mold. What sort of tree do I have here?
>>834273 Hell yeah I've been rafting. If you find a good guide outfit, you'll have a blast. If not, it's still fun. But a good river guide well take you down the dangerous chutes, flip you when it's fun, then share beers and stories at the fire afterwards. I've done the New and Gauley rivers in WV, I highly recommend them both, but the Gauley is only open for rafting for about a month each year. The Gauley is supposedly the roughest river east of the Mississippi, and I can attest to that. Don't be... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /out/ I'm new here, I plan on going camping in the wilderness with one friend of mine, we will be gone for 2 weeks. What are some base foods I need to take that I can lean on, and enhance with game meats and berries and what not. I have plain oats, flour, vegetable oil, vinager, and a bunch of spices and seasonings. Should I take anything like bread, or any food that doesn't need to be refrigerated? What are the cornerstone healthy energy filled foods I need to take
>>833827 I understand the idea that yes, ankles are designed to move, but at the same time, our legs are not going to be the number one best solution on every single type of terrain. So I feel like certain situations, like climbing or going over difficult terrain, ankle support can be a blessing if you take a wrong step and would otherwise injure your ankle. While my situation is not applicable to everyone, I personally need quite a bit of ankle support since I broke my left ankle as a kid and it never quite healed. It's... Comment too long.

>>833777 they do make a difference, everyone that goes skiing or snowboarding on a regular basis in winter knows how useful a lens for overcast and sunny days are. For other outdoor use idk, usually wouldn't bring sunglasses when it's cloudy, but some types of lenses can actually enhance the vision when it's darker. It's not just marketing.
On a whim, a friend and I decided that we are going to thru hike PCT in a few years. It seemed like a stupid decision at first, but the more I think of it, the more serious I become. However, neither of us have much hiking experience.
Since we don't plan on going for a few years, how should we prepare/train? Also, what are your opinions on the trail itself?
Im getting sick of managing profitable business for a fucking retard who pays me almost minimum salary for doing almost all on my own. Since i have education in business management and my passion is fly fishing i plan on starting a small scale fly tying business. I have like no money to invest but i have some tools and materials already since im into fly tying for a while and ive ordered a bunch of new tying materials for autumn pike hunt. The idea is to create like collections of flies with handmade wooden stands which to offer every shitty little fishing shop i can find but since in my country fly fishing is still not very popular i would offer those flies to stay in shop as my property thus the shop owner dont meed to pay for them until someone buys them and he needs to order new ones.... Basically he pays when he sells. In that way i think i could get my floes in every bum shithole there is. Yes and i have to mention that there is noone who ties and sells flies in here. Only chinese crap that falls apart insta. Any suggestions or ideas that may help me? What are your dream business plans?
So /out/, when purchasing gear, particularly clothing, how much does an items appearance affect your decision to buy? Are you going for a certain look (woodsman for example) or are you a highly efficient rainbow of technical gear?
Anyone know fuck all about yellowstone? Going to Heart Lake. 23 hour drive, 5 to get my mate, 18 to get there. 5 days trip around the lake entailing bear country 14 miles out from anyone else 2 weeks after it opens to the public.
Anyway, at the end we have a day to visit fucking whatever tourist shit there is. Anything we should do?
>Just got an email an hour ago saying that Yellowstone has entered a Class 1 fire ban, which only bans fires in back country camping.
Hello /out/ I have been an advid roadrunner my entire life, but always loved the trails over everything. I want to get into true mountain running/ fast lightweight mountaineering, primarily focussing on lots of elevation as opposed to milage. Does anyone have experience with this area? What are good beginner tips? Do you wear trail running shoes? Or fast hiking shoes? Also I live in the NE so not much elevation but thats what im working with.
>>832677 I can give you some tips - Make your shoes fit your needs, if you think about doing a lot of elevation, I'd suggest a pair that have a thicker sole as this will keep some of the shocks of downhill running from your knees. > Buy shoes with regular laces and not like Salomon does it, theirs break easily and are not easy to replace, you also can't tie your shoes in zones if you know what I mean. - Think about if you need a waterproof shoe or not. (I personally don't,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>832677 >>832704 nice points. gotta say, I love my Salomons and their speed laces, but everyone's different.
For me, when woods running it helps to keep my arms wider apart and lower than road running. Helps with balance.
Also, if you are out on a road run, try doing a little fancy footwork, drills or something (anything). I find one of the biggest problems you can have starting out is not being able to handle the constant irregularities that come with... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>832532 Like for fun I could see it. But theres so many options with durable fabric/sewn by industrial machines /lightweight frames that I wouldn't use one after that initial trip to see if it worked.
But I do custom auto upholstery so if you're having issues I'll help where I can.
