Big debate over bear spray vs. guns.

I say why not both? But carrying both isn't SUL, so which choice is best? I think a gun has better multiple uses; consider the following: signaling, spray can't do that. And as a visual threat for two leggers, it reigns over spray. For cauterizing, the powder would be superior to spray. And spray can't aid in fire starting.

What type of stove for cooking dioes /out/ use,
is it gas(propane/butane), or do you use multifuel and what model/company?

>materialistic hero worship
Nothing wrong with wanting nice things, anon.
Thanks for the info, I personally use a BRS Ti stove with MSR isobutane, but I don't plan on backpacking in temps under 10F, so I should be fine.
So those gas burners that are mounted directly on the canisters are no good in winter conditions?.
Isn't the wintergas supposed to solve this problem?.
>Isn't the wintergas supposed to solve this problem?.

See this graph >>1626195
The pressure curve of the graphs assumes that the two fuels (propane + isobutane/butane) stay mixed. But in reality if it is very cold, the propane will vaporize faster than the butane leaving you with just butane after the first 20% of the canister is used, and your upright stove will work a lot less efficient or even stop working if it's cold enough

I wonder how that would compare in terms of temps, and pack size/weight with my REI PolarTec ones? If the same that would be great, and cheaper.

I have a small stainless steel SAK that just has a money clip, knife, scissors, and nail file but I somehow lost it recently. Also it cost me $50 when I got it back maybe 7–8 years ago for some reason. The Juice would make a good upgrade.

What would be the best and cheapest place to live off grid in Europe?

Theyre better than merchants, redguards or sandkips.

But theyre below say latinos or south asians, and waaay below east asians.
they are loud, obnoxious and band together. they sing their horrible fucking music anywhere they want, or rather just generally do whatever they want.
if one of them likes your shoes and there are many of them around, they'll stab you, and thirty "real witnesses'' will say that you stabbed yourself 30 times in the chest.

you can hardly buy a used car because of them. they buy up every car they can, break it, bring it back to you with six guys sitting in the back, and demand money back. if you buy from them you either get a piece of shit that will go exactly 14km distance, or they will find you (either through the contract of the sale or other gypsies who were told to look out for the car that was sold) and steal the car back, and you're lucky if they don't take anything else.

they live in yards called a "putri", which is a one or two family ghetto full of actual shit, junk and dead animals, but they always carry the newest iphones, designer bags an clothes. they have a shitload of kids, who are raised to be violent, the parents collect a METRIC FUCKTON of welfare and when the welfare office comes to check on them they either hide their expensive stuff and put on their designated "poorpeople costume", or threaten the people checking on them, and they usually oblige.

also, they write graphiti everywhere saying "hungarians will die out" and other nice things about the people who are basically sustaining them.

oh and ofcourse, if you criticise them you are LITERALLY WORSE THAN HITLER

god the race wars cant come soon enough.

It depends on just how much extra capability you want, and just how much you're willing to sacrifice in comfort, road manners, and fuel economy to get it.

Subarus are good compromises, but there are many places they cannot go.

Something like a wrangler or 4Runner are great vehicles as a dedicated trail vehicle, but suck dick as daily drivers.

As with most philosophical works, a lot of the analysis is great, while some is kooky. But also as with many philosophical works, the prescriptive portion is insane and stupid.

Have you ever climbed a mountain?
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Yes, but the highest I've gone is 2690m in Switzerland. It was just a pass, not a peak. I've climbed many significantly shorter mountains to the top in the Adirondacks, though.
Elevation isn't everything.
>Have you ever climbed a mountain?
If you mom was a mountain, yes.
Yes, many. I get kinda squirrely if I go more then a month without climbing one anymore.
Yes, only various Appalachian mountains but they're beautiful. There's a broad variety of flora to discover there.

In terms of space efficiency, sure, but having center pivot irrigation is nicer than the extra little bit of crop you could have gotten out of the little corners. Usually what's done if you give a shit about the little corner of space is that other crops/beneficial plants are grown, like planting trees to encourage birds to hang around your fields. Even if farmers do fuck-all with the little dead spaces, just having native vegetation growing in little spots around the place is good for the local ecosystems.

Obviously not a lot.

Hey /out/ - apologies for the long post, but I’d love your advice.

Due to a disability in my ankles, I’ve pretty much been unable to do most outdoor activities since elementary school and general walking / standing became nearly impossible.

This all changed about 6 months ago when I got fitted for these super-rugged assistive devices (think exoskeleton legs) that have been life changing. I spent this summer trying to condition myself - I was pretty out of shape from not being able to do much before. Still not ‘in-shape,’ but excited to be doing as much new shit as possible.

Started going on little hikes, went paddle boarding, kayaking, and walked on the beach. Finally went *real* camping (I’ve been doing campgrounds for years, since I didn’t need to be on my feet) and the height of my personal achievements so far has been a 7 mile (largely uphill) hike on pretty jagged rocks on part of the Appalachian Trail (Jefferson State Forest / Grayson Highlands).

Now, I’m coming to the realization that I don’t have a) any really cool goals or b) any outdoor hobbies or collections. I’m naturally a bit of collector and I love building up to achievements (“hiking all of X trails in Y,” “visiting all 27 X in my region,” etc.).

So what the fuck should I do? Literally no suggestion is a bad one at this point: I’m super hyped about trying things I’ve never done and/or haven’t been able to do in over a decade. Would love to hear what I’ve been missing out on both in terms of active outdoor stuff and just hobbies/collections that can get me out into the the fresh air a little.

Constraints: I can’t quite run or jog yet, but I’m working on it. Would prefer that the active stuff be possible to enjoy with my wife (but general hobbies can be solo), and I am pretty busy in terms of schedule, so I can’t take off 3 weeks to go explore a rainforest or anything like that - at least not regularly.

good on you, OP
the next step you should try is 1-2 nights out
get some kind of tent/tarp, a sleeping bag and food that can be eaten cold (you'll move on to carrying cooking gear and cooking out after)
the ideal is to go to work on friday with your gear, drive out and camp friday night, then you get to experience a full day out on saturday. Wake up in the woods, walk all day, and st up camp for the Saturday night.
If you're still feeling out things as to how much your legs can handle, yyou can camp near your car, that way you can leave all cooking and sleping gear in it on Saturday, and go on a day hike with a lightr load
Do this once, and I'll garantee you'll be hooked

I like this thread
Taking photos of cool shit is an excellent idea, hey I might even start doing that myself (not OP).

Get a GPS and log all your trails, and store waypoints for cool shit you find. After a while you can load it all up in digital mapping software, and see all the trails you've "collected", and all the locations of the cool stuff you've found. Plus you'll also see where you *havent* been.

If you get something like a Garmin InReach, you also have a satellite emergency beacon in case your exoskeleton or legs fail.

you guys are bad.
Check out Hestra gloves.
I used to work outside in Alberta, it would get to be -40 celcius out. That's colder than you have ever experienced and my family is Scotch-Irish not bong.
I heard sealskinz got good stuff.
It was a joke lad, don't take it too serious. I appreciate your input.

If only pic related would not cost a stupid amount of cash for a pair of gloves.
