Lets hear some stories about stupidity in the outdoors. Either personal experiences or stories you know/have heard about.
Together we can learn from the mistakes of others.

Also, if you have enough metal on your person, using near car hoods with a map. Did a huge loop and back to where we started in a huge storm we encountered on a multi-day bc xc ski on the retreat. It was snowing so hard we decided the option of a snow cave was untenable due to loose snow and to just retreat to the truck. Getting lost in this manner had me thinking for a hard moment there: "Is this how I go?" Although we both had compasses, he must have had something metal or magnetic on him, but since his compass was more handy we had gone with his. After realizing our mistake, I dug my compass out and we stopped dead reckoning and went to landmarks and got out of there.

Finally, when we arrived at the truck, out of water (we planned on boiling so didn't bring more than the day's worth), seeing water we left on the seat causing salivation, the doorlocks were frozen!
A few minutes with a lighter and then we could get in. My warm bed that night was the most comfortable it has ever been!

Also based teacher trying to kill you all.
Most camping type deal my school had was one time we went to a golf course that had fire pits and we were all supposed to build small fires in our own pit.
Ended up everyone just throwing everything we could find into one pit and instead of using the flint and steel like we were supposed to Billy had a Zippo that we used instead.
A fucking massive fire, a few burnt lawn chairs, and an angry teacher later all further camping trips were canceled.
I'm pretty sure the golf course tried to sue the school because a bunch of us took wood from a deck that was being built and threw it into the fire along with lawn chairs and a picnic bench.

Ask anything about cooking, cooking gear, trailfood, whatever Or just post some pics. I've seen a lot of threads about those topics lately and I thought a dedicated general would be neat.

I'll start with a question: What are the differences between different trangias? How am I supposed to choose a high quality one judging by photos on amazon? And what are the downsides of trangias if there are any?

I'm looking for a lightweight frying pan that isn't too big or heavy for backpacking trips. I'll mostly be frying eggs, bacon, and fish in it.
I'm avoiding the aluminium ones with non-stick coatings for durability and health reasons, plus I would like to be able to use it on gas stoves and open wood/charcoal fires.
I have the MSR Alpine Fry Pan in mind, but does anyone have recommendations?

I think for the price and the features you're looking at the MSR is perfect †bh. I was looking into this recently myself and came up with no better solutions than what you're looking at. I ended up getting a cheep Coleman non-stick aluminum pan though, and so far it's been fine. Wouldn't work for you at all because apparently if you aren't careful with heat the non-stick coating bubbles up. Your eggos are gonna stick like fuck so you'll need to use a lot of oil (or just bacon grease).

The only negative thing I've found about the MSR Alpine Fry Pan is the aluminium piece at the bottom. Some people have complained that it has detached itself from the pan.

That is brilliant. How do you season or prepare them? I see you have a twig stove, I will be using one as well. The ability to theoretically survive indefinitely off fish is pretty remarkable

Going on a road trip with my dog and a friend, and we're wondering how to figure out which national forests and parks are worth going to. We're going from East Coast to West along the southern border till we hit New Mexico and then we're going north to Denver for a week or so and want to hit all the good places in Colorado. After that, on to California through Utah and Nevada and then finally up to Washington. Plan is to set up camp in nice areas and just hang out along the way in national parks / forests. We're obviously going to stop at all the famous places like the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Yosemite, etc. but what are the quiant, quiet parks and forests that are less traveled but are hidden gems that are in or near Florida, Louissiana, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon, and Washington? Happy to deviate from the route if there's an especially cool spot close by.

Also, does anyone have any experience taking a dog to the bigger national parks/forests? I know for example, the Grand Canyon has some pretty strict rules limiting which trails pets can be on. Do people actually give a fuck if I take my dog onto trails that he's not supposed to be on? It'd be awfully shitty of me to have to kennel him for a day while I go fuck around in nature just because some gay ass rules that don't allow him to get to the cool spots. That being said, I'd rather not catch a fine or get arrested.

Pic related is the tentative route, but this trip isn't happening until early May, so plenty of time to make corrections and adjust course to include some cool /out/ spots.

I actually need to plan the route properly. Any help would be great. I'd like to stop off at all the good spots that I can enjoy with my dog. I have no idea where's good. All I know is I'm going through the states that are on OP pic.
Also, Sorry to everyone about the national park thing. I wont take my dog on any trails that he's not supposed to be on. I've read all about why it's shitty to do so, and I understand. I'll stick to national forests, and if not, I'll kennel/airbnb him for a day.

I had a dream I was in the middle of a big valley. The valley was not flat though, there were lots of small hills and there was a stream running through it with icy clear water and rocks on the edge of the stream. The grass was green with little yellow flowers everywhere. There were some granite boulders in the valley but not too many.

The valley was surrounded by tall trees, but I couldn't tell if they were some kind of North American/European pine or Australian eucalyptus trees. Beyond the trees there were tall snow capped mountains.

Where was I?

I need to find this place bros...

>>1703850
There are lots of places in North America and Europe that fit that description.

firstly eucalyptus looks nothing like pine. if it was truly granite then it could be the rockies or any other sort hard rock mountain range (intrusive igneous)

>>1703902
Don't think it was the Rockies, felt a little too flat. And yeah I think they were pines.

and sleeping in the car?
My job here in WA for the last 12 years gave me 3-day weekends. I'd just hope in the car, drive to Olympic National Park, or Mt Rainier, or anywhere in the mountains. Find a hike to do. 10 miles or so. Sleep in the car. Do this all weekend. The next weekend go out somewhere else and repeat.
I just retired at 46 years old and plan doing this for the rest of my life. Gonna get a travel trailer soon and go on 2 week trips anywhere I want.
Currently I'm taking 5-day trips to Eastern Washington (weather dependent because I have to drive across mountain passes) Then come home for a week or so relax/prep of next trip.
I'm working my through all the hikes in the book pic related. I've done 61 of 100 so far.
I also have and electric mountain bike and bring that too.

instant ramen is fantastic for hiking because it's loaded with salt, which you need to rehydrate properly after hiking all day. It also raises your core temperature, doesn't require any prolonged cooking, and is light/non perishable/compact

It's not a meal. You get hardly any calories from it. It's to warm you up and rehydrate you.

Oats.

I motocamped through Kyrgyzstan for a couple weeks 2 years ago.

Being able to get places that you can't in a car was great and I hope I don't ever forget it. That being said, getting caught in an ice storm while in the mountains sucks, sleeping huddled up against the wall of an old sheep corral to get out of the wind and the rain sucks, getting multiple flat tires and having no tools or working knowledge of either Kyrgyz or Russian with only a basic grasp of Cyrillic sucks. Riding across open prairie with a herd of horses at Song Kol was awesome, bonding with Kyrgyz shepherds over a pack of Camel slims was awesome, telling jokes with Russian mechanics through a bad translator was awesome. I wouldn't have had any of those experiences in a car. So, I say motocamping is definitely /out/. I might take my mini bike the 100 miles to Canada over the course of a couple days this summer just for kicks.

Pretty based. Not sure if it's considered camping, but I refuse to pay $55 to sleep in a bed for 8 hours so I usually take my sleeping bag and bivvy with me on long trips and just pull into those service roads that are around the power lines that cross highways and put a tap over me and my bike and sleep for the night.
I always have ear plugs and no one ever really bothers me.

very cool, are you sure they havnt been climbed? I've add some first ascents when I've found new problems or new boulders, in the UK everything gets added to ukclimbing.com. where are you?

You generaly clean the route, remove anything loose, document it somewhere, give it a grade. Making a topo photo helps a lot, just draw a thick line from the start holds to the finish in the line it follows.

I'm in Granada, in the south of Spain. Here, there are a lot of sport climbing crags but almost no one for bouldering. Spoke with a few climbers and no one have never heard of this zone. There's no chalk marks either. It's not common to document stuff here.
>clean the route, remove anything loose
Is it ok to bring a hammer, for example? I mean, if it is loose, it's ok to remove it, no?

yes a hammer is fine, if you mean a small one. Just tap it over anything on the surface that might come off, it won't take much to remove the loose bits, doesn't require much force
