So I want to go river tubing, I have never been. I am a very good swimmer and its a quiet hour long ride down the river. What do I need to know? I will be by myself.
I am thinking of just wearing a tank top and some shorts, flipflops a hat and sunglasses. I was thinking leaving all my stuff behind, but considering bringing my phone in a ziplock bag in a plastic container just incase i get stuck or something. And beer, lots of beer, and sunscreen.
What else should I know? Should I buy a tube w/ backrest or an inflatable river boat type thing? Share your expertise
>>825955 River tubing is fun as phuk. I went over pic related innatube a few times. It's on the portneuf river in Idaho near lava hot springs. I had about a pint of whiskey in me at the time and it made me brave (or stupid) enough to do it multiple times. The crowds on the river side were pretty impressed with me and treated me like a rockstar. I did get pretty beat up on the lava rocks that littered the base of that waterfall but I didn't feel a thing thanks to my belly full of whiskey. Also wear good water shoes or... Comment too long.

Aside from that, have at it. If the stretch of water you're covering is safe, it should be great fun. I'd say bring a long rope, maybe with some kind of anchorage on the end (monkeys fist for throwing purposes) and you're good to go. Throw rope if trouble rears its troublesome head.

Hey /out/, this is my first time posting here but I thought you might enjoy some pictures I've been taking of my recent innawoods expeditions. Let me know if you like these and I can dump pics and/Or take more.
Anons I'm tired, I'm tired of the daily shit I have to go through ,this meaningless life of playing vidya and watching porn , I need more, I need something to wake up to that motivated me and makes me feel like I'm worth something. That's why I'm proposing to all of you an idea if your interested.A way to make your name heard again to crash the stock market. Now I have thought of this several different ways but one of them is to freez one of the major companies assets however that is lengthy and tiring, but what if we could hack the monitors in wall...

Going to visit a friend in Bavaria in september. Any recommendations for outdoorsy stuff to do? Already going fishing from his sailboat, mainly interested in nice places to hike. He lives in Stuttgart, but I am mobile in the area
Where in Bavaria are you going to be? What is your skill level, or rather how serious and what kind should your "outdoorsy stuff" be? How much equipment do you have, or want to rent, and how much should it cost?
I just walked in the dark through miles of tweed wolf land. I don't know why they call it the tweed wolf, and I don't want to know. I guess tweed is the overgrown fields in new england full of tall goldenrod other weeds and bushes with patches of forest. I saw their floating glowing eyes watching me. That shit scares me, I'm glad to be out of tweed wolf land.
Going during the winter intermission to Colorado. I'm about 5 hours from Denver. I've only ever really driven through CO, but I plan to go Colorado springs to hike/camp around but the main goal is Maroon-Bells Snowmass (White River National).

CO Wilderness Ranger (interning) here, skip Rocky Mountain park if you hate crowds. Hit up the Arapaho national forest instead, less people and better views.
In the several wildernesses in the forest, all you can camp where ever (except for 50-100ft from lakes, trails, and streams (rules are posted please read them)) so no shortage of camp spots. If you want some nice multiday loops Bowen baker is good, Arapaho pass around to high lonesome and caribou as well. Crater lake is pretty cool to check out but you gotta reserve a spot to camp there.

How possible would it be to start in Labrador and hike/camp across Canada to Alaska?
Pic related (9000 hours in paint). I'd stick to just below the tundra tree line and try to replenish my stocks around the Great Slave Lake and Great Bear Lake. Then I'd cut across the flats of Yukon and avoid the widest section of the mountains.
During the last year, I have been spending more and more time outdoors, hiking, exploring forests, crossing rivers etc.
So far my "adventures" haven't been particularly eventful or dangerous or anything, they are, at most, about 16 hours or so, from the very first light till sunrise
What I wanted to ask you is what are things that I (and, everyone else who is new to this) should definitely know? Common mistakes people (or you) have made that could have been avoided, what not to do and what I should... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /out/ this plant has been growing in one of our beds all season. It doesn't match any plant that was planted in the bed originally. At first I thought it may have been basil but now I don't think it's even possible.. It doesn't look like a normal weed. I decided to let it go and see if it would flower and it almost has. What is it? And should I just weed it?

Anyone here use any of the larger North Face hiking packs? I picked up one of their day packs on clearance a few years ago for cheap and it's a really well put together pack for over night or one day trips. I'm looking to replace my cheap High Sierra 70L pack that I use for three day trips with something of higher quality and maybe a little smaller. Since, my North Face is so nice I was looking at them first. I know Ospreys and Kelty has an excellent rep I just don't have any first hand experience with them like I do North Face....
North face are quality, but you pay more just for the name cos chavs love it. Im assuming its the same in the us. Osprey and lowe alpine make the best backpacks in the world imo, but kelty, north face, berghaus etc arent bad
>>824560 Ive never had much experience with deuter, purely cos my lowe has done me so well. Ive heard good things, but im not gonna recommend them on just that. A guy I used to hike with had the airlite 26 i think, he liked it
So I went cross country biking one last time before I went on vacation before I went on vacation to Pennsylvania for a couple weeks. So I get home, and lo and behold there are two deer ticks on the back of my right calf. I removed them with based Scotch tape. They couldn't have been there for more than an hour and a half. Now I'm back home two weeks later and I'm feeling like shit. Slight fever, headache, abdominal pains and just a general uneasy feeling starting the last two days. I've had a decreased appetite as well for the past couple of weeks. Am I being... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>823907 I liked my local shop up north, and I could always ask the dude for advice. Really good selection of tackle too so I would buy a lot of lures there but the rod and reel selection was a lot of high end stuff so I would buy my $40 rods from bigger retailers normally. Haven't found a local place around here that I'm attached to so I normally just do Dick's or Bass Pro. The few local shops with freshwater stuff around here have a limited selection of lures too so I normally don't go in there unless I'm... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My friend and I have never been overnight camping before and we were going to try camping/hiking in Sequoia, as we live in Los Angeles, so we need as much advice as /out/ can give. What do we need to bring? Any campgrounds there that you can recommend? Trails? Food? Water?
Me and a friends just finished or first backpacking trip in Sequoia. I would definitely recommend the lakes trail to pear lake. We spent a few days there but you could do it as a day hike. The Watchtower trail is great unless your really bad with heights.
Somebody recently posted on /r/trees about a one month camping trip they are going on then posted what I can only assume is the supplies they are bringing with them in addition to copious amounts of drugs they will also be bringing. From the looks of it they will be having a bad time. Sorry if this is a shitpost but I wanted to share with others who might appreciate the problems they will face
>>820469 "I want to get more in touch with nature" the hike...
This retard doesnt look like hes bringing any food so guranteed hes going hungry. If not from the lack of food around him, but from the fact he went through it all when he got the munchies. Also carrying a whole lot of unnecesary crap, but nothing really usefull like cookware or a canteen...no extra clothing or shelter etc.
I hope this fag stumbles across a bear while high and gets eaten. Fucking faggot.
I'm somewhat new to being out and am looking for a few different knives for different things and thought, since they were not weapon related, you would be the people to come to. I'm often /out/ ( mostly walking through my city as I have no need for a car given public transit; sometimes in nature ) and would like to buy a few different SAKs ( Swiss Army Knives ) based on where I'm going. I'm not interested in SwissTools ( due to their size but I'd gladly use one at work ) or hearing about competitors ( I've already looked through... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I was looking into getting a decent quality body condom. I've seen sleeping bags, and more recently quilts. I want to go towards a quilt because they are way more cheap and slightly lighter...problem is I haven't yet really seen one in a store so I have to go off people's reviews online.
What are people's experiences with them and why shouldn't I go for one over a sleeping bag?
I use them for my hammock, as they are the preferred top insulation for hammocks.
I have a Jacks R Better Sierra Sniveler. It's about $250 or so for one. While I use it in a hammock, it would be perfectly fine for the ground, and in fact the makers designed it for use on the ground as well.
You won't see many quilts in stores unless they are higher end specialty stores.
I use a quilt And like it. I met a guy who prefers bags because he sleeps cold, and he's a side sleeper. When he turns in a quilt, inevitably there's a draft that exposes him to cold air. I'm actually a side sleeper too but don't mind the draftiness that much. This is with a 20°F quilt. Anything colder and I go for a bag.
i was living in straya when he died and man, it was like a national tragedy. for about 2 weeks it was the main story on the daytime talk shows and news outlets. all kinds of public displays and memorials and stuff. not that they were making it overly huge and cheap, but that he was their biggest celebrity and donated so much money and time to his zoo and conservation as well. he was a huge tourism draw and role model. his wife and daughter were probably a bit oversaturated for a couple years though. people were worried that bindi was being pushed into her father's footsteps...

As a biologist, it bothered me the way he interacted with wildlife, but I can't say I don't get the same level of enthusiasm as he does when handling animals. Overall I respect him as he did a lot to foster an understanding of wildlife that most people would never be exposed to.
I use bicycle innertube to secure a firesteel and sharpening stone to my sheath. Also use innertube to secure the knife like in your pic, but loop second ranger band through the first one to grab on to, like a kind of tab you can pull on to free the knife.
I apologise in advance for asking something very basic. Question is what would be a general advice regarding local wildlife. Didn't find a topic after some quick lurking of http://www.campingexpert.co.uk/SafetyAndSurvivalCategory.html
Asking locals seems to be the best way, but there might be others.
