You're fucking kidding me right? Are you literally the color of Dana White or something that you can't see that Rogan is quintessential red-blood cell'd out of his mind from the TRT?

Pedantic.

I've found some outdoorish uses for plain old black landscaping fabric and am interested in reading creative repurposing ideas for utilizing this cheap material.
A 3'x50' roll costs less than ten bucks. I used some to fashion blackout curtains for my vehicle while camping in the northern territories (24hours of daylight in summer months). I attached stick-on velcro squares to the fabric and around each rear window corner so the curtain can be easily taken down and stored away. This also makes it possible to unroll a window partially without allowing horseflies to enter the car but still have darkness and airflow.
I cut another eight foot piece that folds up small and light which I carry in my backpack to use as a groundcover when I want to chill out on the grass or whatever.
This fabric could make a good bugnet for a rope leanto shelter maybe? It's very packable when folded up, and surprisingly strong/light.

These are Morchella conica (as far as I can tell) an edible and quite delicious Morels mushroom. I harvested these on a couple of acres after a heavy rain with dividend payout to neighbor for foraging them. It took about an hour. These are priceless gems. Wild forage my fellow /out/doorsman.

Anyone else have the side of their hips get rubbed raw after big mile days (15+). Trying to figure out if this is normal or if there’s something wrong with my pants or hip belt arrangement. Pants have an integrated belt so it’s not a belt issue. I think it’s maybe when it gets moist from sweat, and then something starts rubbing. Leukotaping my hips I think would fix it unless anyone else has some protip I’m missing. Pic related - it’s a partial nude

Karl and Gaby in Australia take their Jeep out into the outback but their vehicle got stuck in the sand and the guy was not smart enough to let out enough air from the ties to get them unstuck. Despite leaving a note with the hotel to call for help if they were not back in a couple days after waiting two days (while next to a shelter by their campground with 300 liters of water) they decided to out into the 40c (104F) heat carrying with them 17 liters of water and leaving 348 liters of water behind.

After 5 hours of walking in the heat they had finished half their water and Karl is too weak to make it so Gaby takes his boots and water then leaves him and continues onwards. Gaby was found dead 5 days later having collapsed after having walked past troughs of water for cattle and dams containing water.

Karl survived as he returned to their campsite and waited for the promised help to arrive. RIP Gaby Grossmueller. Pls don't bully I know this story is from 3 years ago. Link: http://monumentaustralia.org.au/themes/people/tragedy/display/111067-gabriele-caroline-grossmueller--

I'm so fucking tired o urban life and being an apartment cuck. It's pathetic.
A couple hours ago got into a major, white trash tier disagreement with a neighbor all because people can't respect other's space.
Police got called and everything, neighbors were looking on their windows, some were shouting. A shameful display that could have gone really badly had I not regained some conscience of what would happen had I open the door during full blown rage.

I keep to myself and like to lay low, earphones also help a lot but it's becoming harder and harder to cope with stupidity.

The Dark Star cave seems to be one of the most fucked up places on the planet.
>unknown size, unexplored cave system
>at least 900 meters deep, at least 17 kilometers long
>to access the cave, you have to climb a 4.5 kilometer tall mountain range (pic related)
>in the middle of fucking nowhere in Uzbekistan
>large parts are submerged in water

So basically you have to transport all your food, gear, air supply and so on for hundreds of kilometers in middle fucking nowhere to get there, days away from any civilization. Then you have to climb a huge fucking mountain range to get to any of the entrances so you need to be a great rock climber. At this altitude the air is already thin and exertion becomes much more difficult. Then you have to go cave diving in an unexplored huge cave system with some very narrow passages. Didn't carry enough heavy as fuck diving tanks with you? Too bad, nobody can help you out here.

Would you be willing to explore the cave?

Have you seen the video of this dive? Truly scary. One of the survivors had to drop 2 diving cylinders because he could not fit through a narrow part at 130m depth. Then he discovered his dead friend ahead of him blocking the path. Because his dive was delayed by several minutes at such great depth, even though he decompressed for 8 hours in 2°C ice cold water in complete darkness (battery was enough for either warming his suit or light, not both) he still had to spend weeks at a hospital because of severe decompression sickness. And those 8 hours he had to worry that everyone else died, that he would die too because he had to drop 2 tanks earlier, that he would never see his wife and kids again.

It can be tons of fun but you definitely have to be prepared for it. Going with experienced cavers is #1, the majority of people who die in caves just wandered in willy nilly. Like those Thai kids, how the whole soccer team got that far underground baffles me.
