240 KB,
Is it generally a good idea to take kayaking lessons if 1) I've never kayaked before and 2) I have an interest in kayaking? I'm assuming it's not one of those things you can just learn by yourself, right?

Kayaking lessons are really pricey around here.

Also, what the general rule or what are the regulations when it comes to kayaking? Like if I want to go kayaking to a river or lake or something, do I have to obtain a permit from the local district ranger station/state park office? I used to work at KNF and would like one day go back to kayak the...

Yes, if you're out kayaking alone and something goes wrong you're in deep.
If you have access to safe water (not running) then you could just practise a lot, but you will need to do your own research into saftey. I would say take a course just to learn the most basic stuff like different paddel strokes, capsize drills etc.

I never took lessons.

My first outing was flat water.

I have taken thre chicks to the same lake and nailed all three of them, though it was later and not on the water.

> protip, the best looking one was the worst in bed.
If your not a dumbass lessons arent needed. Just dont go right into open sea or raging rivers, and make sure you have a life vest

I never took lessons but i go on reasonably calm rivers that only have a few white cap "rapids" and small lakes. rhe only thing lessons will teach you is proper paddling, which you can learn on your own, and eskimo rolls, which unless you use a spray skirt are useless.

If you have extra cash and time it cant hurt but for most its an unnecessary cost

I got myself a 52 liter backpack for my backpacking trip across Europe, which begins this week. I also have two compression packs. Any advice for how to pack my backpack and how much I should bring?
34 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.
Don't use the compression bags unless you absolutely have to. Every time you crush down your loft, it insulates a little less. Try to keep as much weight as possible against your back and shoulders, and lighter items further away from your body. Toilet paper goes in its own pocket, NEVER in the bottom of your bag.
>Every time you crush down your loft

So I shouldn't use a compression bag for my winter coats that I plan on bringing?
> backpacking across Europe
> in winter
> begins this week
> only asking for advice now
> not even knowing how to pack properly

I guess my best advice would be don't go. You're clearly not motivated in any way, shape or form.

Hey, sc/out/s! I want to get a dog for going /out/. I also want to start getting involved in mycology. So I think I want to choose a breed that would enjoy helping me with that, since working breeds enjoy working. I want to make sure it's a dog with a good sniffer, for finding mushrooms, but I can't choose between a beagle and a lab. The beagle would certainly eat less, but a lab, I think would be able to carry his own food. I do a lot of hiking, and could be out for up to a couple weeks. Which breed would be easiest to train for SAR-type work? What else should I think...

You'ed better think about having more reasons than just going out and findin mushrooms (which is stupid).

A dog is ging to be a 24/7/365 resposibility and if you don't have a yard, you're walking it twice a day or more!

A dog is more than just a trophy, it takes care and love.

Maybe you should start with a fish for your first pet?
This isn't my first pet. I'm thirty, I've had several dogs before. Walking him wouldn't be an issue, I'm starting the PCT this spring, and plan on continuing straight to the CT and then AT afterwards. And regardless of how you feel about mushrooming, its something I'd like to do to pass the time while I hike.

>long distance hiking with a dog.
>triple crowning in a single go with said dog.

I'm looking for suggestions, advice, and general discussion about 72hr+ survival bags. I've started assembling mine, and would like tips from anyone who's got experience with it.

Ideally I would be assembling a bag that allows for an extended stay, assuming I can get fishing, snaring, or small game shooting to provide some meals.

Additionally, what do you think about packing a tent + sleeping bag onto an emergency survival bag? In theory I would keep them separate, but strap them onto my bag if I felt the circumstances called for them.

>what do you think about packing a tent + sleeping bag onto an emergency survival bag?
a tent could be replaced by tarp to save space but a sleeping bag is well worth the extra space it takes (along with a sleeping mat for insulation)
you could save space with compression sack tho
>Compression sack

I'll look it up. I haven't used one before. I've always gone camping with some huge bag that seems to hold everything for 5 days+.

I've got a few of those sleeping mats. I actually forgot about them somehow... I'll go put those with my supplies now.
don't pack food in a "survival bag" your not going to die from starvation in 72 hours.

What are some good /out/doorsy anime shows and movies?

The only two I have watched are Mushishi (pic related), Princess Mononoke, and, to a degree, Spice and Wolf (including the books), all of which are among my favorites.

What others have you seen that you would recommend, preferably ones that are highly aesthetically pleasing and capture the essence of the outdoors very well, which should be implied, but I'm clarifying anyway.

Sorry, I meant the three* that I have watched. Not two. I can count.
Kino No Tabi, It's AOTYAY, nigga.
Yama No Susume is alright if you like lolis climbing mountains,
Also, Not really /out/ related but I watched Serial Experiments Lain when I was out on my first 5 day trip and it really intensified the sense of isolation and loneliness I had. Bretty good 5/5 anime though.
Any Ghibli film. Non Non Biyori has a great country setting. Samurai Champloo has lots of traveling to different environments.

Hi does anyone do landscaping and tree work? I'm currently at college studying Arboriculture and Forestry and I'm halfway through the first year.

Great thanks for the advice!
Gardener here. You can get alot done with a pair of pruners (Felcos), a spading fork, a grub hoe (w/pick head for rocks and such), a shovel, a fan rake and a metal stiff tyned rake and a wheelbarrow. Get one of those green plastic ones, not those low wheelbarrows. They're terrible for getting around. It's amazing how much I get done with these tools. No need for machines, and if you're being paid by the hour, all the better.

Hello /out/, first time poster here.

I am going to start getting into hunting, specifically with a bow. I am not sure where to start with getting my license and which I would need to hunt with a bow.

I am going to hunt in good ole PA as a PA Resident, so the license I know only costs me about $20 or so, as long as I pass the test.

Any tips on getting started? Resources, what kind of bow should I look into, etc?

Also I am wondering if Archery Ranges would have bows to try out so I could get a feel for them, but I guess that's just dependent on my area.

Moved out here near Seattle last month from PA, but my journey started in CT. Drove all the way out here alone, but boy was it an experience. Stopped in Yellowstone for a day and I loved every second of it.

Anyway, I'll be here for probably 4-5 years, so I was wondering if y'all had some ideas on what to do around here. I've been to the northern part of the Olympic National forest, but I'm hoping to head to the Hoh rainforest soon (my favorite biome). My cousin is a botanist and has given me a bunch of ideas, but she's in Spokane,...

Love the Osprey stuff, got a couple myself and probably won't buy another brand unless my next pack is just shoddy.
Some really good features, well thought out, well built, light and comfy. Everything you need and not TOO expensive.

I want a bag for very cold weather winter camping.
It needs to be cheap though.
There is one on amazon for 50 bucks on sale, its a coleman with polyester fill.
I also have found an old outfitter in santa fe that sells high end gear from 20 years ago. All lightly used but clean and in good shape. He has hundreds of them and he sells them super cheap.
Has the technology changed much in 20 years? What would you guys do?
