This, easily one of my favourite books.

>On the occasion of their honeymoon, Thor Heyerdahl and his first wife Liv determined to escape from civilization, and to "return to nature". They nominally had an academic mission, to research the spread of animal species between islands, but in reality they intended to "run away to the South Seas" and never return home.

I should point out it was written in the 50s, about things that happened in the 1930s before the war. It's kind of sad because the world described in the book doesn't really exist now. Still, it's a great read and I recommend it to anyone interested

I like Grey just as well as L'Amour. I inherited my grandfather's L'Amour collection a few years ago. I will agree that L'amour is formulaic for a lot of his writing. My favorites by him are Reilly's Luck, the earlier Sackett novels, and The Walking Drum

He was just too damn prolific. Like if you read one or two of his novels he's incredible. But if you read them all they run together into this mash of indistinguishable violence, villains, and heroes.

I read everything he wrote when I was in high school. Literally all of it. Aside from a couple stories I can't remember any of it 30 years later. I remember being entertained for the first 5 or so, but after that it blurred into the same story repeated with different names. A great author but it's best to stop reading after the first few in.

Grey's pretty much the same, but he managed to get some stronger sexual undertones to every story. His characters were a bit dirtier, a bit more human. The wild west was a violent place, no doubt. But mostly it was also a very horny place.

It’s expensive but it’s worth it. Changed the way I see the outdoors around me. It’s got tons of good/interesting information. Stuff like break downs of the most biodiverse regions in the US and why they’re like that or rates of endemism for groups of plants and animals by region. Also good insights into how conservation works on a local, state and federal levels.

One of the nice things about winter camping is there is even less of a need to camp at a developed site, since there's free water everywhere, and your food doesn't need refrigeration. Just find a national/state forest with dispersed camping, walk in a mile or two, and set up your stuff and have fun.

And yes, winter camping is even comfier than Rin-chan makes it look

It's not as bad as all that; the tl;dr is that many national parks have famous and easily accessible places and trails that get hit relatively hard (and for places like Yosemite or Mt Rainier or the Grand Canyon, both famous and beautiful and within a day's drive of millions and millions of "outdoorsy" Californians) but the vast majority of human activity is confined to there and once you get a mile away from the road you're in the wilderness. There are also a ton of smaller state parks that see only a bare handful of locals each season and in many areas of national forests you could go months without seeing other people.

I use that one, and also this one is one of the finest /out/ books ever. It goes into the entire workings of the forest ecosystem down to the sub soil level, and thus is far more than a simple field identification guide. I also use the Peterson guides for medicinal plants, and mushrooms. Overall, I prefer them to the Audubon guides. Anyway, I cannot recommend the Eastern Forests guide strongly enough, to anyone blessed enough to live in them.

I hear that a lot of it is the Chinese. They have some weird, fucked up existence-by-social media culture. They show up, pose, take pictures, and get back on the bus to be shuttled to the next location to do the same thing. Their culture is all canned poses and fake prestige.

Towering cliffs were the home I chose
bird trails beyond human tracks
what does my yard contain
white clouds clinging to dark rocks
every year I've lived here
I've seen the seasons change
all you owners of tripods and bells
what good are empty names

All you who read my poems
guard your purity of heart
let your greed be modesty
your flattery be honesty
put an end to evil karma
trust your own true nature
find your buddha body today
do it as fast as an order

The Cold Mountain Road is strange
no tracks of cart or horse
hard to recall which merging stream
or tell which piled-up ridge
a myriad plants weep with dew
the pines all sigh the same
here where the trail disappears
form asks shadow where to

People ask the way to Cold Mountain
but roads don't reach Cold Mountain
in summer the ice doesn't melt
and the morning fog is too dense
how did someone like me arrive
our minds are not the same
if they were the same
you would be here

Inside Jade Hall is a curtain of pearls
behind it lives a graceful girl
her beauty transcends the immortals
her skin is like that of a peach
spring mists rise in the east
autumn winds stir in the west
thirty years from now
she'll look like chewed sugarcane

Since I came to Cold Mountain
how many thousand years have passed
accepting my fate I fled to the woods
to dwell and gaze in freedom
no one visits the cliffs
forever hidden by clouds
soft grass serves as a mattress
my quilt is the dark blue sky
a boulder makes a fine pillow
Heaven and Earth can crumble and change

Pole your three winged galleons
ride your thousand-mile stallions
you still won't reach my home
it's called the darkest wild
my cave is on a distant ridge
clouds and thunder last all day
I'm not Master Confucius
I have nothing to convey

I live far off in the wild
Where moss and woods are thick and plants perfumed.
I can see mountains rain or shine
And never hear market noise.
I light a few leaves in my stove to heat tea.
To patch my robe I cut off a cloud.
Lifetimes seldom fill a hundred years.
Why suffer for profit and fame?

This body's existence is like a bubble's
may as well accept what happens
events and hopes seldom agree
but who can step back doesn't worry
we blossom and fade like flowers
gather and part like clouds
worldly thoughts I forgot long ago
relaxing all day on a peak.

That was pretty damn great. There's a second book in the series, The Witch of Hebron. You'll probably like it if you haven't already read it.

Glad some one else has read it! The author's a pretty cool dude too.
I liked a few of the side plots from the second book, but I feel that each new entry is weaker than the last. Wish we had gotten more about the life of the trapper, Talisker; I bet his life was /out/ as hell.

Childhood is idolizing the Unabomber. Adulthood is idolizing /Pol/ Pot. What the Unabomber did was send out a few bombs. He was a gnat trying to kill an elephant. What /Pol/ Pot did was empty out the (((cities))), force a return to a pre-industrial agricultural society and kill off the oversocialized intellectuals. He did everything the Unabomber wanted to do, in an entire country.
>>
>>1513027
you can idolize both, anon, the world isn’t black and white
>>
>>1513033
While that is true, /Pol/ Pot should be idolized more for doing more to oppose industrial society than the Unabomber did.
>>
>>1513047
The reason why that is is because unabomber is more recent and was highly publicized, I’m sure if people talked about pol pot more he would become recognized
>>
>>1513066
Come to think of it, is there any other leader who has opposed industrial society as much as /Pol/ Pot. Some tried to prevent their societies advancement such as the Russian royal family preventing industrialization but they never tried to turn back technological development.

Was going to a site a little south from south lake Tahoe in a convoy of cars. About 30 minute out from getting there we hit a "road close too much fucking snow" sign and someone telling us that a plow is going to get here in about a hour. This was 10 at night. The plow finally came at 12:30 the next fucking day. Anyway I read Lord of the Rings all night just waiting for the road to open so I'm recommending that.

I'm going in, boys. I will read it all.
I'll start off with a light perusing of the closely interrelated and lauded series of Peterson Field Guides that focus on edible plants, mushrooms, and medical plants and herbs, which while a little too new wave for me, have their high points.
But when A Field Guide to Insects: America North of Mexico came out in '83, I think Peterson Field Guides really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole guide has a clear, crisp delivery, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the compendium chapters a big boost. Petey has been compared to Kaufman, but I think Petey has a far more erudite, natural sense of nature.

>During college, Bowman is robbed, beaten, and sodomized by a rural gang.
>Bowman realizes that his life has been irrevocably changed. He makes Blair record a video taped confession of his illegal actions, then kills Blair and disposes of all forensic evidence of the agents' presence. Afterwards, he hunts down and kills Blair's remaining subordinates. Bowman and his closest friends begin to systematically kill ATF agents around the nation – whom Bowman views as supporting the infringement of citizen's constitutional rights, and abusing government powers – as well as politicians who had supported unconstitutional gun control legislation. Simultaneously Bowman releases the video tape of Blair to CNN, which claims that Blair and his companions have had a change of heart, realize what they are doing is wrong, and are now dedicated to killing other ATF agents. Amidst the national search for Blair and company, Bowman continues to rack up the body count.
>Eventually, as the ATF and FBI are unable to effectively track down those responsible for the killings, the President of the United States is forced to give an address to the nation relating his intent to repeal the unconstitutional laws, including the National Firearms Act of 1934 and Gun Control Act of 1968.

I became determined to run away and go live in the woods after reading this back when I was nine or so. I climbed the big sandstone ridge behind my house, made it to the top after quite a bit of hiking and climbing...and realized that I'd forgotten to bring water and was now very thirsty.

I quietly returned home and did not end up living in the woods. Alas.
