Stay in Lewiston, get a CHP, and you'll make Maine finer.


Massfag as well. There isnt enough snow but my friend and i went on some nice walks in the woods this past week. Only short four to 10 mile walks in the state forest. Sadly in the south coast there isnt much for /out/ but we try our best.

Lets talk hiking boots.

After a few years of cheap-o shoes and discounted trail runners i decided to give combat boots a try. I often go off track and live in a rocky environment so should prove useful, though god knows what ill do when it gets hot.

What boots does out use?

The Irish Setters look good so I might get a pair when I opt in for a new set of boots.

Still have the China boots I got, fare dues to them they've managed to hold up with the occasional pit stop of repair (the adhesives they used weren't up to task, thankfully mine were) for 600km over a year but I'd like to get something that is better quality next time around.
Broken them in to the point that they are everyday comfy now.
Never make the mistake I did and buy exactly your foot size, not bigger, not smaller. I got a hell of a blistering for it on downhill stints of an expedition hike.
I live in Colorado and do winter alpine hiking and ice climbing. I have also done permanent nerve damage to my toes from being too cold so I err on overkill for boots. Maybe your comment wasn’t directed at me, but just FYI. Mountaineering is also a great sport for gear queers which I am slightly guilty of as well.

So Merrels are good? They're advertising all over my shit so I'd be an npc and give them a try. Are they made in the US?
seconded, these boots are the best boots i've ever owned. I prefer them over my Nicks most days.

The way shoes are these days, it's unlikely that they're truly american made. never tried their boots, so a little unrealated, but i had these merrel trail runners. the fit was a little weird imo but didnt stop me from putting on tons of miles on em, so actually ended up being really decent.
I wouldn't have any problem giving their boots a try.

I know some spots like Antietam Creek and all that but are there any spots that are good? Will even take suggestions for places where you need to pay.

good cheap stuff
When should I switch over to "professional gear"?
Buy cheap "starter kit" of what you need, when stuff breaks, replace with decent gear
Regardless of what elitist fags might say, Decathlon has pretty decent quality for the price. For 7€ you can buy a fleece with YKK zippers, thing that "premium" brands not always offer in their products that cost 8x as much. For many products they're good to go, my favorite pair of shorts costed me 15€ there and have been going strong after 5 years.

My only bad experience was with shoes, the sole went to shit after a few hundred miles while the upper part is pretty much brand new, kind of a bummer.

My only criticism of them is their lack of "premium" brands, it would be nice to find Patagonia, Arc'teryx, Millet, La Sportiva or the likes in their stores, but I guess it would fuck their own brand.

Great for basic stuff at a fair price, for shoes or more specific gear there are other options.
That. For your washbag or silken sleeping bag, they are fine.
If you want high-tech like fancy jackets or boots, their one-size-fits-all and cheap-as-possible does not get you far.

Hiker stuck in quicksand for hours recounts being trapped in a "puddle of concrete"

Thirty-four-year-old Ryan Osmun was hiking Saturday with his girlfriend Jessika McNeill when she tripped into quicksand. As he helped her out, his own right leg became engulfed up to his hip, reports CBS News' Tony Dokoupil.

"There was no chance of moving it at all. The sand had surrounded the whole leg and I couldn't move it," Osmun said. "The best way to describe it would be … standing in a huge puddle of concrete -- that basically dries instantly."

With a storm coming in, McNeill, who was later diagnosed with hypothermia from the cold, hiked three hours until she found help.

"I didn't know if I was for sure gonna make it out. I didn't know if I could do that hike alone," McNeill said.

Ten hours later, park rangers reached Osmun but it took them another two hours to get him out of the quicksand.

"One guy scraping sand away, they were able to free my leg. It was probably one of the worst pains I've ever felt," he said.

This guy's double retarded. He hit the bottom at what? Thigh level?
I've literally walked out of quicksand to the knee. Didn't even dirty my shirt. You hit the bottom, and you've got it made.
Depending on the density, wiggle my leg around in small circles to create a space where water can flow in until I can pull out my leg, then lay flat and get to solid ground.
>women got hypothermia from hiking three hours alone
>"I didn't know if I was for sure gonna make it out. I didn't know if I could do that hike alone," girlfriend said.
Like nigga is your boyfriend carrying you? Oh no I'm all alone!!!

I've scrolled by this post several times now and I still can't stop reading it as "Hitler stuck in quicksand..."
somebody get him out of there this has killed 6million of my sides
>Don't "stand" in quicksand, lie down and crawl out of it
>He hit the bottom at what? Thigh level?
>lay flat and get to solid ground.

the quicksand is underwater in near freezing temperatures. At best he'd drown quickly, at worst he'd die of hypothermia from wet clothes over a period of about 15 minutes.

also he didn't reach the bottom, that's not how quicksand works. He reached the point where he floats in quicksand, which is around waist level if you're standing.

Does anyone else here feel more relaxed and feel like doing shit when it's night?
If you mean chill in my room and do drugs then yeah
I often walk in the forest at night, especially when the moon is full (or almost), so that I can see at least a bit of what is in front of me, I detest flashlights when walking, it feels very unnatural

Remember the cat had latched on to his wrist which would have made it pretty safe to do a leg choke if he pinned it from behind

>too stupid he thinks pulling a trigger is a complicated mechanism.
This is why you carry a stick (a quarterstaff) with a nib of mild metal at the end and practice using it. No need to kill kitty. Only bruise kitty. Hurt kitty lives but never again attacks humans. Dead kitty takes its knowledge to the grave, spreads no new knowledge to its cubs, perpetuates the cycle of death.

Death to all who needlessly kill kitties. Death to all who venture into kitty land unprepared. Forced euthenasia to all who seek medical treatment after killing kitties.

There is a huge fucking difference between fighting for your life and fighting for play. Fighting for your life has zero rules, and literally every possible drop of adrenaline you have is released - and adrenaline is a hell of a drug.

How can I get into kayaking? It seems comfy as hell. What's a nice beginners kayak that won't break the bank? Good size? I'm not sure if I want an inflatable/folding or a fixed that has good storage so I can go on a longer trip.

Did you keep the shell?

I'm not a big fan of turtle meat, neither texture nor taste. Not that there's much meat on them anyway, IMO.
Not him but I always figured the shell was it's own soup bowl.
What state is this? Looks similar to the part of Alabama I go to
I've been considering getting this kayak for a while but all the reviews for it say it's really really slow. Do you think I'd be ok taking it onto a river with current?
so beautiful, i'm envious

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Prince Albert, Carter Hall or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $20.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

Could try, but I've had rehydrated tobacco that was only a couple years old and it didn't taste particularly great, or anything like it was supposed to. Anyway, there's only one way to find out, so do it faget.

Thinking of picking up a case doctors knife as a pipe knife? Thoughts?
Butt of knife as tamper, spatula for scraping. Pen knife for plug and other edc stuff?
I never use the rod poker on the Czech tool anyway, only the tamper and scoop/scraper
Just picked up some Charatan Eventide, supposedly a nightcap replacement. Here's hoping it's a good smoke.
Let us know. I know a lot of people want a decent replacement.

Is there a go-to resource for the latest way to filter water, cook your food etc.? I don't actually mean expensive gearfagging although it could include gearfagging.
For example I have seen guys on youtube shill those little BRS stoves and they're very cheap.
I have seen guys on youtube talking about a recent article where Andrew Skurka says we shouldn't bother bear bagging anymore.

Basically there's a hundred ways to do anything and I don't want to learn a way that is outdated in an expensive and ineffective way rather than in a trad primitive skills way.
just boil it pretty simple. if paranoid run it through charcoal sand gravel. but can't say i really tried it. distill it if you want to, have to be good then.
I'm not talking about just one thing. I'm talking about all of it. I don't want to buy stuff that basically just exists as a legacy for people used to it.
