I'm thinking of buying a mora. I have never owned a fixed blade, only a swiss army knife but its a bit messed up from using it to smash limpets off rocks.

What would be the best mora for general purpose outdoors? Or would a different knife altogether be better? everything suggests the moras are hard to beat but there are like 100 different models.

Moras are a good knife, but they can run on the expensive side.
Depending on what you need and use it for, you can get away with getting something that isn't $600.
What do you intend to use it for?
Personally, I dont fancy them
well thanks for nothing /out/.

Hey /out/,

Right now I'm using a flip knife I bought at my local hardwear store to take /out/. I've read good things about Mora's on here and was wondering if their good knives? I would just use it for various thing's around camp, cooking, chopping wood, etc, maybe cleaning game every now and then.

Thanks in advance

i have that knife, had it for about 6 years and its still sharp, havent sharpened it once. good blade length, practical. ive split logs and cut rope and what not with it, also easy to conceal when out and about, would definitely recomend
Yes. I bought mine in stainless and love it. Ignore the shitty guy with the wal mart fishing knife that undoubtedly post here.
why would you want such an ugly knife, anon?

So, I've noticed a common denominator among many video game heroes. Their shoes never seem to wear out; lava rock jumping, river wading, ocean swimming, ship sailing, and dragon slaying notwithstanding. Their boots are always doing their job, and not getting those pesky rips, or anything like that.

Now, I know this is all from a fantasy setting, but I want to know if such a make of boots exist. And if so, are they available for purchase?

Thoughts, /out/?

And just to clarify, I'm talking like, adventure quality boots. Foot armor you can wear on the daily and do just about anything in them, from climbing fences, to hiking up mountains, to running around in the woods, to hunting wild boar with a spear.

Food tips for backpacking meals requested.
Whenever I go out I freeze milk and put it in my pack with my food.
This I wrap with any clothing or other cloth and put in the center of my pack. If its not too hot this will keep everything cold for several days. The milk is handy for coffee or pancakes or other things you might cook on the trail.
Remember , you can freeze milk but not half and half.

OP bumping with slab apricots from trader joes.
Holy shit these things are delicious and will get you through a morning hike.

A handful of dried apricots always gives me the shits. I prefer firm stools when out, because I don't have to pack as much TP. Just a thing to keep in mind for anyone who plans on just taking these and peanuts. Also, almonds are great as a trail food, but you've got to keep the amount fairly low. Eating too many almonds will result in cyanide poisoning. Its not enough to suicide, mind you, just makes for an awful migraine.

Morning, sc/out/s.
I'm planning a sort of national parks tour for the summer, where I'll be dispersed camping my lonesome way east to west across the States.

I'll be in bear and cougar and wolf territory, for the first real time ever (never encountered a grey wolf in Michigan)
So I was curious about defense, and how to properly protect myself.

Is avoidance the way to go? running into dangerous wildlife seems like something that can just happen, despite precautions.
I do own and would probably be taking my bolt .22, for small game and the...

You can carry rifles in all the national parks and I would highly advise. Wolves are becoming much more of a problem but not nearly as bad as mountain lions and bears.

So yes bring a rifle and maybe a backup pistol if you get stuck cornered in a tree or middle of the night. Practice shooting moving targets because these animals are very fast.

How does this patch signify geopooping?
It just looks like a geocatching patch.
What am I missing?
14 replies and 6 images submitted. Click here to view.
it's a reference to the original geo cache shitter thread.

the color implies biological contents, harmless contents is a joke that people put on their grocache boxes AFTER they shit in them... the geared out hiker signifies a sc/out/ who has been roaming all day and happened to come across a geocache, in which he shits in.

it's meant to be a subtle patch, and it does a good job. you'd only get it if you were in the first few geoshitter threads, knew the color code for biological material, or understood the significance of "harmless contents"...

I was in all of those threads, as I recall this was a joke by ONE anon that kinda fell flat on its face.
Since no one else had made a geoshitter patch, the patch guy went with this one.
It is too obscure.

Your best bet to find /out/ friends is rural areas, there are plenty of them. Most people are pretty friendly, just strike up conversation when you find an area you wanna camp. Eventually you'll find someone with interest. Find some parties/bars and just mingle is what I'd recommend. For getting used to Canada, get used to the weather. It gets very cold in deep winter, BC is milder than where I am from but your still going to need a good winter jacket. I'd recommend checking out some snowboard/ski shops,...

I spend the winter begging my friends to go winter cambin but I can never really get them to go. Once we went in April when it was still icey and crispy but it wasn't deep winter. We do however get drunk and wander around the train tracks and industrial areas, which is incredibly fun, and I always take pics.

Last winter was so snowy I got bored taking cold bleak snow pics so I went out and took a shot not of snow, but of "snowing". It was kinda neat, maybe not cozy idk.

It really depends on where you go. The rules vary from place to place. If you go to one of the National Forests, they're generally pretty lax about what you can do. You might need a permit for some of the more traveled trails and camping areas, but they're usually cheap or free.

The National Parks are more regulated, but they're not that bad unless you want to Hunt. Main thing is that all of the good ones are overcrowded as hell unless you know where to go. Yosemite National Park for example is a complete clusterfuck of crowds and tourists unless you hike...

There are tons of gigantic state and national forests, as well as general federal lands were you can basically go do whatever the fuck you want. Keep in mind, America is enormous. Also plenty of people have ranches or other large chunks of land and they just go out on their own property.

1 MB,
So I want to spend the week /out/, but I'm used to warm weather. Here's what I've got:

Knife, camelbak, dirty bag, Sawyer mini, duct tape, salt.

Everdry (dryer lint and wax), lighter, duct tape, two hand warmers, Mylar cheapo.

GI poncho, hammock, SOL escape bivy, thermalite extreme liner.

Milspec polypros, wool gloves, merino beanie.

I'll also be bringing a mat, but haven't decided whether to bring a closed cell or inflatable one yet.

Now, the SOL bivvy is rated at 50F, and the thermolite is rated at adding 25F, and the low for this week is 26F, so I'm borderline there. I don't know how well the polypros work, but I've got down to 40 in the bivvy/liner without them. Is this suicide?

Not pictured, I'm getting a steel cup and sterno can for soup and hot drink, not sure what I'm packing for food, but that's my cookware limitation. What would you eat?

I'm trying for 3-5 days, won't be going too far from home at least for the first night, and this isn't in forestry land, so no fires. Any other advice you want to offer is welcome. Also, it's going to rain.

I forgot to add that I know better than to wear any cotton, and I'll be picking up some underlayer.
>Also, it's going to rain.
You're gonna be cold dude. I slept in the sol bivvy w/fleece liner for a few months it was great for summer but once it hit the 40s at night it wasn't enough. Even with my clothes on. I would seriously consider matching your bivvy with a 40 degree down bag. You'll never regret being warm at night. Also weight/durability wise, get a thermarest zlite. It does great for heat reflection and lets be honest; neo thrashers are too loud.

recommendations for boots and rain/wind breakers?

i live in the city, but i spend an enormous amount of time outside, and occassionally trek out to the appalachian for some exploration.

im looking for an affordable rain breaker i can throw over sweaters and shit while im in the city on rainy days, but also some affordable boots i can use once the snow and rain gets to me too much come june. i cycle a lot so that has to be a consideration in whatever pair i scope out.

any suggestions and ideas?
