I need to get off my phone and I need some outdoor activities.
Does walking do anything? I am trying to walk but I think what would moving me legs do to a thin guy like me?

Walk around your suburb
If your suburb is too shitty, walk around a nicer suburb
Just buy a bike
It'll get them scrawny calves looking good too
bike to the edge of town and walk/bike around the less urbanized outskirts. you'll find a trail eventually. first step is actually going outside, there is more opportunity there than you think, even if it's not as much as someone who lives in a more rural area. something is better than nothing.
Find the closest national park near you, go for a 2-3 hour walk and if you dont find yourself calmer then find something else
My bike got stolen

the Te Araroa exists you know, you could hike it.
>im going to try walk it as much as possible.

no need to hitchhike or stealth camp
literally everyone does it
i work in a hotel in NZ and like 80% of our guests at the moment are richfag boomers just finishing up hiking the length of the country before the cold weather settles in
Peanut butter, honey and vegemite sandwiches
Works for me (public toilets hate me tho)

ive done a lot of trespassing and camping in less than legal places in my youth. its pretty easy to not be seen in the woods. I've had people who were looking for me look straight at me 6 feet away and not see me. taking advantage of lighting is the best way. you are invisible on the edge of the woods with the sun at your back. I was also just a scrappy kid that thought nothing of crawling thought shrubbery and swamps just to get to camp in places no sane person would go.
The Apoolacshit trail should be completely firebombed.

Anyone able to recommend any kayaks to fit my goal? Something they use or have seen used and personally like?

Me: 270 lbs, 6', big guy.
Looking for a freshwater lake fishing kayak with sit-on-top style, not sit in. I'd like something big enough and stable enough that I can stand to fish if needed, but I'd also like something big enough to fit a dog on it. Alternatively I want something that wouldn't be terribly difficult to tow some rafts behind for my dogs to hang out.

Would probably prefer foot pedals.

Budget: 2-4k USD

Post your whistles

better hope rescuers are already looking for you and already in that small radius when you fire em. you only got a few.
i can blow my whistle all day, and use it to freely communicate with my buddy who's also lost with me while we split up to build a signal fire.
also unless its a moderately high caliber rifle the sound isn't actually going much further than the whistle.

My signal has a whistle.
here's a test of 39 survival whistles
he includes a distance audible test but only through open terrain, not through trees. although i do not believe the results would change too drastically based on the center frequencies he measured.
hyperwhistle is better than i thought, i might try one out.
if you don't somehow already know this, decibels are not linear.
you sure its a real survival whistle or a toy/backup one? you're only audible for like 50-70 meters through trees without a real survival whistle. think how surface area works with a circle. you can't actually be heard out in the woods with something like that and its kind of dangerous people get the idea in their head that they can be. much like those dumb chest strap whistles on backpacks.
it just does ok ;)
Probably it grows from 1 inch to 1 inch and a half.

how can I make the best of my circumstances and enjoy nature if all I have around me are crop fields and fenced off properties?
there are some woods but you're completely banned from camping or making a fire (there are big fines, and the locals will report you to the authorities).
All the spots that aren't privately owned orare fenced off as a nature reserve are usually packed full of people because I like right next to a city, and these little pieces of actual nature get swarmed by other people, making it feel more like a tourist hotspot than tranquil nature.
I want to go hiking, but there's nowhere to walk outside of alongside roads, or through small bits of forest. the best I can do is cycle, but I really want to get away from the roads and other people

picrel is what the area around me for hundreds of KM looks like, it's all just crop fields, little patches of forest, and dead villages

ask landowners of forests for permission to camp. hunters and sportsmen do this all the time at big ranches and large woodland lots.
Bullshit, everything in that picture screams "old world"
Look at Iowa. I can understand if hes never heard of BLM in the context of fed land.
damn. except for top right i don't even see a navigable river. that's how i usually travel.

Hidden falls is pretty cool there, in southern Illinois. But I pissed in the wrong Bush and got poison ivy on it. Should have known better, as a Kentucky boy.

If you climb up and around the waterfall, and follow the water for a few miles through all the bullshit, there's a really sweet spot a bit away. It's a local spot for teenagers to smoke weed pretty much, but it's still really cool. Hard to find though, even if you know what you're looking y

Hello fellow /Out/ers!

I'm about to take on a trip through Europe as cheaply as possible. I need some good boots for long walks through forests, cities, camping in a tent etc. I was thinking of pic related(french ranger boots) because they are reasonably priced, supposedly are indestructible. Don't know about comfort though. I'm planning this trip through april/may, so the weather should be around 10c-20c. Thoughts?

Thanks! Those look nice. But why glued? I purchased glued leather hiking boots last december and after a single hike in the snowy trails(40-50km) the front part popped open on both. I thought maybe it's because of the moisture that had expanded during freezing.
Where are you finding vintage French rangers? The new ones are terrible and made in Africa
What is that exact model of us military boot called.
I’ve had those since I was a kid and need to know
FagButt AssStompers
nta but my personal luck with glued boots depends entirely on the design and if they put glued sections where the boot naturally creases, or are smart enough to put the seams elsewhere when designing it.
anon's boots appear to be a good design at a glance.

This is a simple question. When hiking does the terrain become too dangerous not to put a helmet on? Give examples of trails that you would use a helmet. A lot of experienced people fuck up and smack their head then die. It's more common than most people know.

Park ranger here: I typically wear a no-profile bump cap in a baseball cap for work as standard practice, whenever I go off trail. I'm a little paranoid after seeing what mine are head injuries can do to a guy, for my days in the Army.

Pic related, but inside of my NPS cap
What minor head injuries* I swear it's phone posting, and not brain damage. The bump cap prevents that.
Interesting never heard of these before
These things are way more common than you think, and are available for most Walmarts, home depots, Dick's sporting goods etc.

Anybody who might get a bump on the noggin but doesn't require a full helmet should wear one. Housing inspectors, general contractors, anyone working in low head spaces, etc. I was a tanker, and I am a little over 6 ft tall, so I used to bang my head on everything, but it wasn't always viable to wear my tanker helmet when I'm just doing basic maintenance.
happened to a lady i was hiking with. just roll your ankle somewhere with a heavy pack on and have a rock coincidentally be where your head decides to hit the ground. all it takes. she slipped uphill, not even a lot of force.
i wear a helmet when there's overhead hazards.
didn't know these exist, i'm gonna get one.
depends what trails, nothing dorky about a mountain climber having proper gear on.

It’s a meme, isn’t it?

That looks like a cancer bag desu but a side zipper is extremely useful when you carry a lot of different stuff, or simply 2 to 3 weeks worth of food.
I think Exo has the best bag design. Easy to get to your food bag without having to pull out your tent, or get to spare socks, heavy baselayer without having to pull a 30 pound food bag. You'll appreciate side zippers when you have to carry winter gear / extra gear, in autumn weather, or simply when it's several weeks between resupplies.

Opinions on picrel (luxurylite stackpack iirc) ?
I'm making my own backpack and i was thinking that the three bags looks like a good simple, lightweight solution that allows for some degree of organisation and easy access.
I think i'd rather use drybags tho, simpler than his weird design.
Kuiu packs are better
>wahhhh have too much access to my things.
Yup you sure need fast access to the 2/3 of your gear that you never use outside of camp.

Anyone else get this? Sleeping deep in the mountains is like a steroid for my dreams.
For me, sleeping in a strange place causes me to sleep lighter, which means I wake more frequently and have better dream recollection as a result. So yes
I have vivid dreams when sleeping with a hoodie. Makes me rethink the whole tinfoil hat theory.
