Hey, /out/, I was thinking about getting a pair of western boots for casual wear. I grew up in rural Tennessee so I'm used to people wearing them, but I've never really purchased a pair. I was thinking about getting a pair like pic related, but I'm open to suggestions. Any brands/styles/etc. I should look out for?
I've always worn Justin, but Tony Lama and Ariat are both pretty solid. Go to a legit boot store, and tell them that you don't know anything. They'll measure you up, and help you get exactly what you need.
Once you break them in, they'll be your best friends.
I want to go /out/ but I don't have any friends and I don't know anything about anything. I feel like if I went hiking or camping I wouldn't be able to appreciate nature and I'd get bored or eaten by insects.
If I had an /out/ buddy could they show me the greatness of the outdoors? How would I meet an /out/ pal
Do you have any friends that you could go on a camping trip with? Maybe a few friends would like the idea. Get a tent, cooler of beer, some hot dogs, few sleeping bags, and hit up a campground.find a hiking trail for during the day, camp at night, have a few beers. Might spark their interests.
If you're in college look for social groups, they often have outdoor clubs.
Check out online forums, often there will be local area subforums with meetups, group camping trips, ect.
Go to church? Maybe start an outdoor group there if you're involved in church.

Any one here work at a national park? I'm looking into this as a long term thing. So could you give me suggestions as to where is the best place in the USA to work year long and provides room and board? Also, any tips or information you feel necessary.
My fellow axe wielding sc/out/s. I see so many different size handles and heads out there and so many preferences I just had to ask. What length handle do you prefer and why? I prefer a 26"(give or take) for the leverage. What about you?
>>634613 what a retarded question... handle length and head size should be adjusted to your proportions and the task.
one school says for general purpose axe you should have one that reaches from your armpit to your palm preferably a carpenters style good for both whittling and cutting. but that is way too large for hiking and way too small for felling or serious splitting.
I want to work at a ski resort in my country (America) over the winter, since I have a seasonal job at a summer camp lined up already for next year and can run them back to back. I have about $1500 cash saved up for whatever I might need (gear, rent, food, plane ticket, etc) and an interview on tuesday.
What should I expect as a liftie that won't be told to me before I get there? All I know is the hours are long, you're not making a ton of $, and there's no real flexibility in your schedule.

If you're considering that as a permanent job (for many years) I recommend specialized gear, like modern carving-like skis and slope boots.
Getting your own stuff will be more affordable in the long run.
I'm a guide for blind people in mein country from time to time, so I carry my own gear, more focused towards ski touring, which is what I like the most in my free time, but I ALWAYS rent skis if the person I'm guiding has to rent them, so as to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Dear /out/ We got our first snow in Michigan and I don't want to look like a nig nog and get a pair of Timberland boots What coats/boots do you guys recommend for cold, slippery weather? Also has anyone had any experience with these shoes? Worth or not worth?
Mycology General? I've seen a few separate threads about mushrooms, this board is slow as hell so I might as well just make a general every few weeks

Hey, I've been borrowing my brothers golite nest tent for a while but will no longer be able to use it. I have been looking for a while to replace it but golite no longer makes this tent, it's honestly the best tent I've ever used as far as weight saving while still being roomy. Used it in Utah, was great to leave the tarp off and look at the stars, used it in New Zealand and kept me nice and dry. So I'm looking for essentially the same tent if anyone has any suggestions, hell I'd buy it off one of you if you have one and dont want it anymore.

Hey /out/, I was wondering what your guys opinions were on people like the grizzly man who think they have some kind of greater connection to nature https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9lCkFygaaQ (The grizzly man and his wife getting mauled) pic not related
