Soap and water can go a long way, but when it comes to pine sap or campfire tar, they're totally useless.
Is there anything /out/ uses besides acetone to get the gunk off?

Lava soap comes to mind--I prefer the bar over the liquid soap. There's pumice right in the soap--helps clean off the gunk really well.

Another alternative would be Boraxo. It's basically powdered soap with ground down borax. Works really well against dirt and grease, and the borax also acts like a deodorizer, so your hands won't carry the scent of whatever you were handling.

Why spend thousands of dollars on shitty fragile ultralight gear when regular gear is cheaper, more comfortable. and gets you to the same place? Can't help but think those people like gearqueering and feeling rich more than the experience.

I use one pole for my tarp, and like to have it in hand when hiking for the odd bit of stability from time to time. Also on that specific trip there were a lot of shepherd dogs that needed to be kept back. I don't really use the pole for hiking enough to warrant both sticks.

First post on /out/...
I have this dream every couple of nights about kayaking on a lake. Its not like the same thing happens every time, but I'm always in a kayak in the same lake. It's about 4000 acres big, and has a much of small islands dotting around it, and I'll land there and look around at these pine trees and generally stomp through the tiny woods for a bit.
Does anyone know where a lake like this exists in real life, preferably America? It's just make me want to go kayaking, maybe for like my birthday.

When I'm /out/ and about, if I decide to bathe myself (I expect to be in civilized company soon, wanna doink the cute trail girl, whatever), I'd often just submerge myself in a large body of water and use it as an excuse to do some swimming. If you're really funky,bring a bar or a little container of soap (Dr. Bronner's is fucking great) and wash yourself like normal. If you're really, REALLY paranoid, bring a wash cloth too for some scrubbing, but unless you're rolling in tree sap there shouldn't be anything stuck to you that some vigorous rubbing can't fix.

All that really changes as far as bathing when you're out is frequency.

This.
The “vision quest” you see portrayed in teligision does not exist. You will not be physically walking around feeling buzzed and having visual hallucinations. What will happen is exactly what anon said. You will be lost in your own headspace. Think of it as a very intense daydream until you snap out of it then realize you haven’t physically moved from your spot.

Lake Havasu city is where they relocated the 1831 London Bridge after a wealthy private party purchased it and paid for the relocation. It now crosses a part of the Colorado river.

What do you guys use to get to sites? Live in Murica so public transport only in cities. I personally use a sport bike or moped depending on the distance. Suzuki GSX250R for anywhere far and a old Vespa S150 for somewhere near.

Right now, all that I have is a small carabiner and a NiteIze DoohicKey, but I want to add on a thing or two to it to make it a little more useful (and slightly hefty—I only really have two or so keys that I carry around at this time so it's pretty light in the pocket.)

>Precolonial Ethiopia
Allow me to interject for a moment: what you refer to Precolonial Ethiopia was, in fact, an absolute shithole.
I have read multiple journals of both colonists and soldiers alike, and all agreed to one thing: Ethiopia had one asphalt road, it was today's main avenue, which passes by the former Imperial villa. The Negus himself, a man said to have "two metres long legs" (it means someone that walks around fast, and for a long time) moved around the city by foot: during the muddy season there was no other way to move.
Also, beside the palace there were no real concrete structures: it was Tucul (the indigenous home, made of wood and cloth) all over the place.
Addis Abeba did not have any sewage system either, tho it had a nice railway, courtesy of the french that built it all the way from Djibouti: tho it wasn't free, they received the rights to excavate Dancalia, a phosporous-rich region.
Also, slavery. In the 30s.

Yeah not exactly a nice place to be.
>>
Anywhere in southern Siberia/Far East Russia, the further north yo go the harder life becomes and the more you have to rely on nature (the river you build on) for survival (fish, and usually crap fish like burbot and pike) because the soil is shit and the growing season is short. I hope you enjoy back breaking labor, something as simple as putting up har is tremendously more difficult with no modern machinery.
