Sure there are many dangerous plants in the Amazon, and /out/ occasionally posts about plants that are harmful to eat,
but has anyone ever encounter a giant Hogweed plant?

Harmful plants general I guess

And then what are you going to do with it?
haha benis

Poisonous? It's custom to drink aquavit infused with the berries for christmas. It tastes great.
Can confirm it's an extremely common plant in Scotland. I didn't even know it was poisonous!
not sure if joking
atropine is an anticholinergic

Are these a meme? Or actually worth something?

Seems kinda neat.

Florida has no rocks, either. we have to make them out of concrete.

Personally, I'd just make one from some scrap sheet metal, if it needed to be flat in storage. Otherwise, I just use my tin can rocket stoves.

>Was looking to buy one, but I'm still wondering what they do, that a circle of rocks won't do

+ more comfortable to cook than having to put pot/kettle/mug in the fire
+ safer to use when it's drout

+ safe/discrete to use in places where you cant make fire because of reasons (last week I used esbit stove to cook water for tea on a beach full of people)

- twigs burn out fery fast so you have to feed the stove constantly, unlike with regular fire

- yet another piece of junk to haul with you, regardless how light & small it is

The boredom would drive you mental (if you aren't already).
There was that guy that landed on an island populated with feral goats. He passed the time by banging them, racing them and fighting them. He marked the ears of the ones that were best to have sex with so he wouldn't accidentally eat them. Maybe OP could do that?
The fact that they're considering this is confirmation enough.
I'd watch that documentary.

Alright so I'm finally making time to take a trip to Dolly Sods WV this weekend. I've wanted to go for a while. I have a Tacoma and I want to be able to sleep in the bed. Can anybody recommend a place to go in Dolly Sods where I can drive in and camp? I'm from PA and there are always a lot of off-roading trails in state forests where you can drive in and then just camp wherever you want. Googling isn't helping so I thought I would consult with some experts. Thanks

Adding to this post>>1583773 I'm only about an hour north of pitt.
I don't know what most of what you said means but I don't have a gps and we won't be camping on the trails so they need to be trails that I can do in a half day or full day perhaps, nothing too crazy ( 12 mi or so max I would think).

We are renting a cabin in Riverton so no camping involved.

I also was hoping maybe I could find a shorter hike in the Otter Creek Wilderness, that area sounded cool. Or maybe along Laurel Fork.

Any ideas for stuff to do in and around pburg?
Not be a glamper and actually go innawoods up north.
Loyalsock is probably my favorite spot. Ketchum Run Trail is a nice secret. I hiked the entire loyalsock trail almost 20 years ago. I like the area near World's End. Also, Bear Creek, near the wyoming valley is an awesome spot. I know it like the back of my hand. I hate living in southeastern PA now where there is no fucking nature
That's not really helpful though. I will have my elderly father with me.

File: umbrella.jpg (22 KB, 466x367)

I'm planning to buy a new umbrella and I have two requirements:
- it should be a travel umbrella so it would easily fit in a backpack
- it should have a double canopy. Never had one of those but this design must be pretty efficient since I saw a lot of people owning one in countries known for their shitty weather (i.e. England and Ireland)

So I searched a bit and selected two umbrellas on Amazon but after reading the comments it turns out they are utter shit :/

Do you guys have any umbrella brands or specific references that you would recomand ?

I've hiked with an umbrella a number of times. I use a gossamer gear liteflex. It's pretty light, a really good size, great for sun as it's got a chrome coating. It's also pretty tough, as umbrellas go, I certainly havn't babied it. No idea what a double canopy is but I live in the UK and use this umbrella in the UK and havn't had any issues with it.
a rain jacket

in all seriousness you get what you pay for when you buy an umbrella

when you buy a cheap umbrella the question isn’t whether or not it’ll break but rather when

look for davek or something along those lines
is this umbrella /out/ related?
are you going to be hiking/backpacking on trails with it?

Your umbrella looks good but I'd like a travel umbrella because I would carry it in my bag every day. Also see my pic for the double canopy design. I'm from the north of France and never saw an umbrella like that in the country, but whenever i traveled to England/Ireland it seemed like everyone owned one !

Yes of course I carry a rain jacket while out but last time I hiked on a hill with absolutely no trees or stuff to avoid the rain and I was glad to have my umbrella !

Yes I would carry it whenever I go for a hike or go to work

It clears your mind so much it's unbelievable. Everything becomes so clear and conscious which enables you to solve complex questions / issues that have been plaguing your existence

Got a crisis going on in your life? get fucking walking. Need a reason to live? bathe in the light of the moon.

Can anyone give me any pointers on good brands for a truck-bed tent? I have a 2018 Tacoma with the long bed. I'm not looking to spend more than around $300, and less would be preferable.

think outside of your thick skull

sometimes sleeping on the ground is a really bad idea. in lots of situations. sometimes it's safer to be in the truck. you're only thinking of absolutely perfect conditions in 1 setting
where would you need to go if you are getting ready to go to sleep? this is silly thinking. leave your house every once in a while it's not that scary
I don't know where your driveway is cowgirl.

>never changed camps
lots of people camping like here in the nordics

save yourself a lot of trouble and get a proper roof top tent. when they are installed on a bed like that there is no climbing the roof and shit involved in setting it up. mine is just bolted to a solid frame that also makes a weather proof bed cover. from i step out of the truck til the tent is up i need 3 minutes. matress, duvet, pillows and stuff i already have in the tent.

Had to move to Paris and I am already missing the nature.
Can anyone recommend any day hikes around Paris?


Fontainebleau is a great spot
I live in Paris. Take a car and drive into Normandy, many hiking opportunities. The coast line is about 2 hours max from driving but the best hiking in Normandy is about 2:30-3 hours, in “Suisse Normande”, all around Clecy.
I recommend leaving europe.

So it's just a sheet of 0.16mm thick aluminium. I found a site selling them in the UK, but I'm sure it'd be pretty easy to google them for sale in the states.
Thanks, I can /diy/ then I guess.
Different anon. None of the instant I've used heats itself. What are you using?
If I wanna go heavy and convenient, I'll take my debit cube stove or alcohol stove.
If I wanna go light, I just sit my pot on the coals of my fire.
Either one works fine, you just have to build a fire for one.

The whole Pocket area is one of my favorite places, but it sucks so much has been paved. My family had reunions on the side of the dirt roads there years ago. I hiked the whole JM loop with my son not long ago and the only other humans we saw were a tatted up Desert Shield vet woman and her female companion, about 1/3 in clockwise.
we used to love to ride the trail up the mountain in the mud but they paved it. the whole area seems to be getting paved. ruins it imo. my son is also my /out/ sidekick lol

Well, just the one service road to the top was paved, the trails are still as they've always been. I'm deeply missing having my son for /out/ sidekick, he just went off to UGA the other day.
GO DAWGS! mine is three. right now any ole city person can get up there.
Yeah, but they'll just drive up, look at the view, and drive away, not very many hike the full trail, especially with so much of it grown partially over and all the poison ivy/oak on both sides of it in many places. Even the average "hiker" isn't going to do the loop.

Man I don't give a fuck about bears.
This shit seems like 10x worse.
I had two raccoons start fighting/fucking about 20 yards behind us while catfishing one night. It was dead silent and the fuckers just lit up out of nowhere.
I used to have around 2000 hectares of land in a secluded area in my country.

We took a long walk around the area and when we got back to the house it was full of guerilla fighters that were well known for kidnapping people.

I guess this didnt happen outside, but whatever.
