A couple friends of mine, both hardcore survivalists have offered to take me along with them when they go out into the Tetons for a month or two in the winter. I really want to go with them, but I have zero experience surviving in the wild, and surviving on a windy mountain in -60 degree weather in the coldest spot in the US sounds a tad bit insane. These guys know what they're doing, they've been doing it every year- Would I be able to survive with them and learn, or would I just be dangerous dead weight? One of them is a blackfoot native with a crazy amount of hunting... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>644833 If they're your friends, then consult them about how to prepare, what gear you'll need, etc. That being said I would highly recommend against making your first backcountry experience take place in such an extreme environment.
I made a thread because aint found where to ask sincerely. Its the first time I go trekking, we going to go to a 2.500meters mountain, they said that the lowest temperature will be 0ºc and like high humidity.
My question is, will those tights http://www.thenorthface.co.uk/tnf-uk-en/mallas-termicas-para-hombre-warm/p104240.html?___store=tnf-uk-en&___from_store=tnf-es-es keep me warm? I want to go with shorts, bcs I feel more comfortable.
When I hike in the winter I usually just use thermals and shorts because I don't mind my legs being cold. As long as you've got warm, dry footwear and keep your core warm you will be fine during your trek. At 0C I honestly think you could walk around bare-assed with boots, hat and jacket. When you aren't active, you might want something with more insulation though.
So if it was me, I'd say those are fine for a day trip, but anything overnight and I'd want at least some polarfleece pants and shell as well.
Hey anons. In Spring I'm enacting my life's dream of wild living for as long as possible in a roaming way, likely starting in south of Britain and migrating North. I'm adequately versed in trapping, botany, herblore, bow/crossbow hunting, tracking, survival etc enough that I'm not worried about being killed by malnutrition. This will essentially be backpacking that ends either when I decide to stop or in the following September, when I'm going to uni. I'm here to ask whether there's any obscure help /out/ can supply before I go, since my long-term... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

these may very well be the ancient paths, friend

I am a lost man /out/. I have struggled with feeling severely depressed and suicidal and other times very anxious for many years now. I have just a hundred bucks and enough camping gear to survive 40 degree weather. I have a job, however I blew my shoulder out yesturday and won't be able to work any more doing manual labor. So with my previously stated mental condition talking to people type jobs is completely out of the question and now apparently physical jobs are out of the question too. But I have camping gear. So I guess, if anyone has any tips they can offer, I'll... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>644606 Your "mental conditions" and victim complex are 100% self inflicted. There are plenty of other entry level jobs you qualify for that you could take and would provide steady income for someone your age. You are not lost. Your are disillusioned by media and social media and whatever other outside sources you are letting effect you. You expect you should have all these great things by now but dont. And as a result you have alienated yourself and become reclusive. This is not the answer. Develop a plan and move... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've backpacked for a five weeks before. I've done several trips that were three or four weeks long as well. When backpacking for a long time you learn how little you really need. People are also generally very nice and will do amazing things for you without being asked. On the five week trip we backpacked through Scotland, Wales, and England (I'm American). We would eat in a pub most nights.
>>644511 The knives are ok But the sheaths suck The belt loop is not strong and can break at the pivot point, No snap, nothing to lock the blade in the sheath. Means the knife can come out when walking,
What are some really great parkas? I'm looking for a really great, versatile winter coat/parka that I can wear for /out/ stuff, and to work, pretty much anywhere. Ideally it would last me several years.
5.11 Tactical's parkas seem cool to me but idk anyone who has used them. I hear Canada Goose is good but expensive. Any recommendations?
Also interested in this. I don't want to spend $800 on a parka. Would rather spend closer to $100 since I'm just going to beat it up outdoors. Lowest temps I'll see will be around 0 F (gets colder than that here, but I don't camp if it's that low)
I just got to Japan a few weeks ago and I plan on climbing mt.fuji in janurary for the difficulty. I read that without snow shoes it can take over 12 hours. What else should I be bringing with me? I've hiked mt snow and mt Stratton but they're nothing compared to this. Do I need one of those climbing axes too?
>>644359 >the damage the cairn builders did is still evident If it's an area you frequent then each time you go, pick up a rock and try to put it back where it looks like it belongs. Leaving the pile makes it easy for hippie vandals to reconstruct
