This 5.11 Rush 72. Some people love it and some people actually hike with their gear.

It's heavy empty and I can never get the harness where I want it. Ymmv
I think there are healthy gear discussions, which start something like "hey anon I want into X, what gear do I need" or "my old Y just broke down, need a new one, any suggestions?" And there are those gay threads about the best lighter, knife, axe, rope etc. And yes, those faggots are annoying af, just like vape hipsters or any other kind of retarded autistic gearqueers.

pretty much got laid off, tired of the rat race, been thinking about going out for a while now. first hike, planning on being out for a while. read a lot of the articles that offer the same basic advice, is there anything you guys wish you had known before you went out, any non obvious gear recommendations? ngl, thinking about sleeping in the woods alone makes me want to instantly shit.

Don’t overpack. You will every time.

First time you end up hypothermic inna wilderness you learn just how tough you are.

Take fishing gear or a small rifle. Nothing beats fresh protein on a fire. Simple stuff like salt and pepper can make things nicer.

start slow. do a day hike with no gear, just water and candybars.
when you are comfortable with that, get a minimum amount of gear, just bag-pad-tent and do an overnighter.
if you wanna do more after that, then get into a two nights sleep hike with maybe a stove.

when camping, ether camp very close to other hikers, OR waaaaay off trail where there is 0 chance of being found. otherwise, you will be uncomfortable. also, on your first night, you will be scared as shit and wont be able to sleep, its just how it is the first time.

I unironically want to make a prepper website that has all the stuff necessary for prepping for anything in a convenient location. Kind of, in theory, the Amazon of prepping without all the extra Amazon bullshit. Offering the ability to pay in cash too somehow, but that is down the road. Something discreet that won't try to upsell you or scare you into preparing for anything but allows you to do so. No, "IF YOU DON'T BUY THIS ONE SIMPLE THING YOU WILL DIE" because I hate that shit. No identifying boxes or anything to let anyone know what you're getting in the mail. Just a simple place to get stuff without all the bullshit.

What should I include? So far I have in mind

>military manuals for surviving
>general books on surviving
>maybe clothing if i can find some surplus stuff
>equipment but same as above

I don't know what I'm talking about. I just woke up and can't go back to sleep. I can sell SKSs so people can go innawoods. Only SKSs.

It would definitely be worthwhile to dive into other sites and sources for the same type of thing you're starting and see if there's any gaps or niches to be filled

Because the ticks that transmit it are evolutionarily successful? Because more people are reporting it? A combination of the above?
>why is it spreading
One theory is that after we killed all the passenger pigeons, the field mouse population has exploded, which led to a tick population explosion as well.

It kills all the enjoyment. Besides, I don't have a car so my only outing can be done near cities/villages and railroads where the train can take me.

yeah, that's not going to work. I have never seen anyone use strechy cord on their guys. Either use linelocks or an easy to tension knot system so you can adjust your tarp quickly. silpoly doesn't sag as much as silnylon afaik.
Like this
>1000 nights
If you want. But like I said I have never seen anyone who tarp camps in the back country using strechy guys. If it was a good idea people would be doing it.
I spend a minimum of 1/3 of the year hiking. That combined with weekend trips and testing stuff in the garden over a number of years adds up. Maybe 1000 nights its pushing but I tarp camp a lot. hah.
Glad this thread is up.

I'm making a simple tent this week for backpacking Myanmar and need some advice.

Weather will be very hot
Swarms of mosquitoes with diseases
Monsoon rains possible from the start of may

Usually I use a thin plastic tarp and a ground mat, but I don't think it would be suitable because it would be very hard to mosquito proof and the ground could become muddy

I'm not sure which design of tarp shelter will be best for me, an A frame would be too heavy and I don't need the space

I think a single pole bivibag cornet would be ideal, because its light and I can seal it with a single piece of mosquito netting.
But I can't work out the dimensions because maths isn't my strong suit, I'm about 5.5 foot and need space for a 75l hiking bag (also my pillow)

I went mushroom hunting today in central Iowa and found these growing on a standing tree. I’m not sure what they are called, but they don’t look or smell poisonous so I think I’ll try cooking them up.

Mycelium has its own Kingdom now. Tread lightly lads. And don't eat any wild mushrooms unless you are exactly 100% sure they are not poisonous. Mushrooms are great imitators. Be careful and don't be die.
Is put 10 dollars on it being a tulip tree. You can rule out ash by checking for opposite branching but ash bark looks slightly different. Note the little upside down v shapes where the ridges run diagonally, that’s how you spot tulip trees. They’re also normally way taller than most other trees with straight trunks, and they’re among the first to put out leaves so you can look for green way up in the canopy and spot them from a distance.
Yeah where I'm at, all of the trees already have green. The oaks, birch, maple, walnut, these things, and pretty much all the others too. As for the branching I didn't know that I'll try and check next time I go (probably tomorrow after the rain).

Most of them are about 2'-4' in diameter and pretty much straight up for 80ish feet.
Leaves are a dead giveaway too. Tulip leaves are like maple but with four lobes giving them a sort of square shape.

Came across this fly in the inland Pacific northwest of the US and I couldn't identify it. Does anyone know what it is?
Horse fly? They bite and hurt like shit.
Their innerds taste like honey.
i did not want to know that.
In Olympic National Park I had these things following me for miles at a time. They've bothered me here in the upper Midwest but I've never had one so persistent that it would follow me for a mile or more. When it happened the first time I thought it was funny, every time after that it drove me insane. I don't think I could ever get used to those things like I've gotten used to mosquitoes and ticks.

Anyone have a set of rain pants they like? Preferably full zip or close to it. I’d prefer not to spend more than $60-$70 on them, less if possible of course.
Pic only semi-related, which was part of this weekend’s moist camping trip.

Sporthill 3SP pants. They're not necessarily waterproof, but they do deflect water and wind better than a lot of rain pants ive worn. They also stay hella toasty even when you're wet; I've been xc skiing in 10 degree weather with only 3sp and was toasty.
Another time I was walking through knee deep snow and the only reason i felt cold was my shitty boots lol. The pants were a little damp but I felt nothing.
Frogg toggs
The problem with frogg Toggs is that they’re paper thin and they’re still $22. If you even look at them wrong they rip. Their advantage is that because they’re paper thing they weigh essentially zero
This set
Rain pants are so damn hot there's no way I can where them above ~50F. Trail runners are ideal if it's going to rain because they dry really fast. Id recommend a minimal pair of gaiters to help prevent rain from pouring into your forward, especially if you're wearing boots. They won't keep you dry in a downpour but if you're under canopy cover or if it's raining gently, they will help a lot. You want the kind that has elastic at the top and thin so the water doesn't run down your leg into your shoes. Leg hair also helps prevent water running down your legs (my gf learned that the hard way, or at least that was our hypothesis).

I plan on doing a bicycle circuit around Germany in October.

I'm doing this for the sake of redeeming the image of public education in my country (since I'm here in Germany thanks to a scholarship). My problem is that I don't have enough for paying airbnbs/hostels for 1 and half months that I will spend around the country, I hear suggestions on how I could/should go about this

exactly what a german psycho would say
I did it it in the US so I had more opportunities for it, but urban camping. Just pull off the road wherever you see some god woods you can e hidden in, even just off the road, no set up a tent. Don't get caught, hide well. You can camp in cities too under bridges and culverts, but you may have to contend with people. I had only positive experiences though and I think you will too if you avoid muslims.
Its Also a nice bonus to sniff hostess dirty underwear while being in the showerroom. Haah good memories

Would you recommend warmshowers instead of couchsurfing (is it dead yet), or other like Trust Roots?
Little offtopic, but you guys know the state of EuroVelo routes in your countries? It seems like in Poland they totally abandoned that, nothing new is being done, there are not even good maps available, only general like "Go from X town to Y town"

Any other long distance European Cycling routes to recommend? Up to 2 months.
