Here fren, one of my more forgotten but magical captures.


Audio/Acoustic engineer so I've been running around with mics for yonks. Specific nature recording sort of started up for me only in 2013 or so, after I got into photography and started spending lots more time /out/... and naturally I realized I should really put the camera down and start collecting sounds, because that's what a do. And thusly the journey began.

>Where do people commonly post nature recordings?
Good question, dunno really
unironically really good shit
thanks man
Nice dude, what kind of gear do you use?
I've been thinking of getting into this stuff but I'm wondering how long a handheld recorder with built-in stereo mics would feel sufficient.
Real nice. Any longer ones?

Today, 95 year ago, they left for the summit one last time before the clouds enveloped them forever. Let us, amidst the money-centered, corporate-driven, consumerist spectacle mountain climbing has often become, remember that the human spirit is capable of exploration and wonder, too; the urge to venture into the unknown, to catch a glimpse of what is on the other side... We should not forget them and how they climbed their way to immortality.

You had to be seriously fucking tough to climb in traditional gear. Not just fit - you had to be able to cope with extreme levels of physical and psychological discomfort.
There are literally studies showing declines in male fertility, testosterone levels and grip strength.
(Grip strength is used as a proxy for strength overall.)
There is absolutely no good reason to think men today are as manly as they used to be when men today are exposed to plant estrogens, xenoestrogens, sedentary lifestyles, cradle to grave programs to condition them to be less masculine etc.
You think you're being smart because you're being pedantic but really you are just being autistic. You are willfully ignorant.
This anon is correct.

What kind of shoes are you using for trail? I got coned by the salesman with pic related (Inov8 Roclite G grip) since I don't know much about trail running. I told him I wanted something 80% road and 20% trail, something more rugged than my old kinvaras. Can I actually do some road running with them?

My father was on uppers/downers when I was a kid, put my family in significant debt and tried to kill my mother and I while high. He never took me /out/ and my mother was more or less the only father figure in my life because she loved the outdoors. I don't want to be stuck in spain on a 400km walk with that unhinged fucker.
Well then don't fucking do it then.
I'm not. It's not even so much him, not really keen on being around a bunch of fucking people for a hike. I go /out/ to be away from others.
I was thinking about doing the Northern route but, I'll consider the French route.
are you catholic?
are you looking to have a social, cultural tour of spain?
if the answer to these is yes then do the camino.
do you want to hike?
do you want to be in the mountains?
if the answers to these is yes then hike the GR11

How does this guy keep getting chicks to bring him home when he travels for a month at a time with a single change of clothes and bumming it out all along? That's some serious game.
It's called charisma and persistence. You don't see all the chicks he fails to get to take him home. Also keep in mind he leads an interesting life, and thats half of all it takes to get a girl to be interested in you

My dog found a nestling and spit it out on my feet unharmed. I thought it was dead but it kept opening up it's mouth, it didn't look like it was harmed, so I got the ladder out and put it back in it's nest. Hope the little feller makes it.
More suprised my dog didn't eat it.
This is a good way to get beat to death or shot. I support you in your cowardly endeavor.

What pad and sleeping quilt/bag are you guys using? I do a lot of high elevation alpine hiking in the PNW (North cascades/Olympic range/Rainier) so I got a nice comfy 0°F 850 Goose down fill top quilt from outdoor vitals and a Thermarest Neo X-therm sleeping pad (R5.7). Together they're super toasty for 3 season alpine backpacking and 4 season low elevation all around.

>super compact
> weighs right under 3 lbs all together (47 Ounces)
>keeps me warm & comfy down to 10°F
>still comfortable at 55°F because the quilt is adjustable and I can sleep with one leg out etc

What do you guys think? This is basically my go to set up year round up here in Washington. Might even pair it with one of Outdor vitals under quilts for nice and dry winter hammocking to keep me off the wet floor during the rainy winters.

That's clearly a quilt
Hey faggot, after sleeping without pads for a few years in the army I can tell you that your hips get pretty fucked in the long run if you sleep on your side without a pad. You'd know this if you actually did it often. There's nothing manly or cool about having fucked up back and hips when you're 30. Save yourself the pain and just use a damn pad.

You're deluded if you think that the cowboys, trappers, and scouts whom we all emulate to some degree wouldn't have used an inflatable mattress without hesitation had you handed them one
Ok fine, I will. Thanks bitch.

Check out both, even goodwill of you got it. It's hard to say what pack you need, due to every one body being built dif. Go to a REI and get measured and shit.
Poorfags, LARPers, and bushcrafters hate any pack that isn't dirt cheap, surplus, or canvas respectively. Osprey is a fine brand with a good warranty, the Aether is a decent pack

Thompson center g2 contender or encore.

You choose between carbine or pistol. Get one chambered in either 30-30 or .35 Remington.

Only real negative is single shot and a bit heavy.

The appeal is the countless number of calibers available makes it a very versatile platform.
Fuck off nigger, I been here before /out/ was even a board, when it was /k/ and /an/ this topic is more than fine, so again, lurk moar faggot.
