Serius heatwave are pretty legit. Super thin and adds a lot of warmth
They also do silk for a simliar price
Are these legit? or are they a meme. What's the underlying technology for muh "serius" heat that any other liner wouldn't have?
Milsurp wool gloves, cost about 5 euro. American, Belgian, etc. Thick enough to use by themselves in chilly weather, thin enough to put bigger gloves over in cold weather.

Is skateboard/longboard a viable mode of long distance transportation? How long of a distance could a normally fit male cover in a day without killing himself, with a light backpack, on a flat road with equal stretches of uphill/downhill/flat surface? I used to skate as a teenager, although obviusly in parks, so I'll probably recall the technique quickly.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I didn't skate in almost a decade, just go an itch to travel faster that normal hike. I don't plan on ever bombing hills and going fast.
You can probably do alot if you learn to push normal and with the other leg. Also, you will experience tons of cramp, get used to it. No idea about distances. I can guess you can do 60 km per day if you are trained, maybe 80.
Biking is better is pretty much every way. Skating long distances kinda sucks. It's doable, but suboptimal. There are just so many reasons to go for a bike instead. If there's a blip in the pavement, bad day for skating, the motion is much more tiring, it's a bloody pain to carry around when you're walking. OP, if you really want to skate long distances, google "skate pumping" and browse the forums at silverfishlongboarding. Long-distance skating is definitely doable.
A pair of rollerblades are better for easy all day cruising than a skateboard, bike is best tho'.

What should I know before climbing Mt. Fuji?
25 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
Snowmass Resort (Aspen, Colorado)- 12,510 feet.
Highlands Resort (Aspen, Colorado)- 11,675 feet.
Breckenridge Resort (Breckenridge, Colorado)- 12,841 feet.
Lake Tahoe Resort area (border of California and Nevada)- 10,891 feet.

Interestingly, at Ski Resort Arlberg (massive collection of individual resorts in the Austrian Alps) the highest point is 9,222 feet.
Fuji is steeper and has a higher prominence though.
Point is that millions of people ski at the same or higher elevations every year without issues.
If you can't do a slow walk up Fuji, you need to reevaluate your lifestyle.
You can definitely navigate Japan without knowing Japanese. Especially if you're just hitting major tourist destinations and not trying to live a quiet life in the countryside or something gay like that.
Not to do it.

It is a saying since forever from just about every sage-type character in books, shows, and movies that are about to teach the main character for whatever reason. There are many variations of, "How do you fill a cup that is already full?" It is attributed as being an ancient Chinese proverb.

>emergency skill
No, don't use it during an emergency. That is the WORST time to abuse your tools. Once they break your emergency situation gets far far worse. Literally everyone who does not batonny chop chop knows that it wears you out more, can break your tools, and can actually injure you so badly that you can die. It isn't simply coming back and saying something like, "well any idiot can use an axe incorrectly and injure themselves," because the very act of batonny chop chop is an incorrect use of a knife in the first place.

Well, that is what you get when you have a tool that has a logo stamp right where there's a high stress point and a difference in tempering and possible forge welded edge. kek
If the choice is risking injury and tool breakage to have a fire in a situation where I'd freeze to death otherwise, I'm making that fire,

The rest of the time, I'm using an axe.

Going to be moving from Seattle to Los Angeles and I really despise the drive down so I am looking to break it up by planning a bunch of hikes/trail runs to do along the way in the various regions.

I'll be taking i-5 almost all of the way so I am looking for suggestions primarily in Western Washington, Western Oregon, and the Western parts of Northern California (Redding/Eureka/Shasta/etc)

Prefer to keep it under 10 miles and 4500 feet of gain but I am open to anything if you think it's worthwhile enough. Any thoughts?

Don't take the 5 for starters. Go up the PCH.

I live in Seattle, was born and raised in San Diego. If it wasn't for the fact that I much prefer the climate and wilderness here, I would probably have moved back. Lived slot of places in my life, but San Diego is pretty great. Anyway, parts of Washington (small cascadian towns, Olympic peninsula) are still really nice. Northern California is cool too. Absolutely anything would be better than LA
Nice delusional and arrogant post. Yeah you totally settled it. No one can chime in otherwise.

Will people stop for you when hitchhiking? How serious does the police take wild campers? Would locals provide shelter if some serious bad weather happens? Does hitchhiking work? Will a sleeping bad and a tarp suffice?

>stealing a bike
Go away, nigro. We're full.
Actually you couldn't be more wrong. Poland is almost like Scotland when it comes to camping. Camp anywhere as long as you are respectful and the private land owner doesn't kick you out. It's better to ask for permission first though.

By the way if you went to Poland there aren't many Muslims because Poland is not one huge fucking "asylum" like Germany, so we get no terrorist attacks or sheep fucking either.
Don't listen to those mutts saying its a third world country. You're not gonna get stabbed. It's cold now, around -5c at night and it's getting colder every day. Hitchhikinh is possible, not reccomended unless ur a chick. It's easy to hitch in the mountains where a lot of tourists do it. I'd get a bus from Krakow and go to Bieszczady Mountains (u wanna get to Wetlina or Ustrzyki Górne). See me for a beer, maybe i'd hike with u for a bit. Also there is hiking shelters that have cheap beds, less than 10$ a night
+5C today, meh....

Ask the guy in this picture, he said he used a cross-country skiing motion exclusively to get around, and that next people we send up there should unironically have skis.

You can get speed but I think it would be impossible to actually fall down those slopes, people who went to the moon said you could catch yourself if you were falling cause you fell so slowly

It means you are a casual. The more extreme the better. The moment people praise mediocrity over extremism is when the hobby/interest/ ideology dies. At that point nobody even cares to improve their skill and the hobby/ interest becomes casual. This has always been the case.

I've been having to wait to say I find this to be a most excellent view upon this. Many seem to be unforgiving of his final mistakes and a few character imperfections, but he still began with at least some respectable intentions, and had many great adventures along the way. His chosen path was certainly more interesting and worthwhile than the usual. At least he had the stones to give it a go.

Add January, February and depending on the year, half of March to it, and it's like that here
That one is the best though. Trees start flowering, days are longer, temps may exceed 20C every now and then, ground may finally be dry again...

The Ozarks are garbage mountians anyway. Colorado and California are the only real outdoor states.

Why is this becoming so popular? It's kind of feels nice going out into nature wearing traditional wear rather wearing nylon jackets. Making your own fire and building your own shelter, instead of using tents and electricity.

Get yourself a pair of milsurp wool trousers, and like $40 online. I have a set of old british battle dress trousers and they’re extremely well made and durable. Good for blocking wind too.

Make it a game. Have these "Selfie check points" every time you take a selfie in that spot, upload it onto "Outdoor selfies" (Outdoors Selfies is a registered trademark) you get points based on the spot. Just put these spots in more dangerous areas, let the game begin.
