These are like 9 bucks and they are made of a cotton-polyster blend, they sleep so much better than those nylon hammocks. Could they effectively be used for the outdoors/camping?

I have an uquilt. I'm not looking to just make another uquilt, I want one that actively beats out my previous one. 860FP down for a really good one will be about £150. I can't find any sleeping bags with that quality of down on sale right now.

Hey guys, I live in Harford County MD and I'd like to go snowboarding this year. I've never snowboarded before but I'm relatively athletic and I have skied when I was very young.

What is a good place to go that's close? I was thinking roundtop in PA but I don't know if they let people rent boards and boots.

I've recently started snowboarding.

My issue is that I want a snowboard with porn on it but Burton Love boards seem to be hard to find. Guys on eBay think they're literal gold and they want like 2k per board even during corona which is ridiculous.

They should start making more sexy boards. I hate how every board looks the same. I can't tell any difference in their handling so all I want is graphics.

Really depends on what you want to carry. If you want hot food the easiest is usually something you can cook with boiled water.

if you want to cook in a proper pan you can put cast iron right down on hot coals if you want to and are willing to carry cast iron.

>If I wanna go for a one night backpack trip, should I bring a stove and a pan to cook with?
Do you plan on cooking?
Do you plan on cooking on an open fire?
Do you plan on cooking with a pan?
For all we know you might be planning on taking some food from home pre-cooked and a loaf of bread. Thus making any cooking utensils unnecessary.
I've done overnighters where I take a couple slices of roasted pork loin, some bread and that was dinner.
So, anon, think about what your plans are and what you need and take it.

Small sleeping bag, hammock, old hand-me-down bivy. Non-cookable food, Water, no fire. First aid kit, toothbrush, headlamp, batteries, book, Leatherman.
I'll usually bring a change of socks and a waterproof jacket for a short adventure. If it is a long one, I'll pack additional food and water, as well as clothing. If I'm hiking, I'll throw in a map and compass too. I don't like the idea of bringing more than the essentials (plus the book.) The essentials do change situationally, though.

It's my birthday soon and I've always wanted to get out on the water, and wonder if I should pay the extra £ for the roofrack etc for a hardshell kayak or just get an inflatable kayak. I love the water, and unfortunetly can't afford a board and trailer. Just looking for the cheapest way to explore the local lochs(Scotland)

they're fine one you get them in the water but shore conditions are critical
select sandy or smooth rounded stone areas to launch and land or if you can launch from a dock that's even better
they're pretty durable though for a balloon pic related has survived 2 years of puget sound barnacles

they are great I used to fish for mackerel off the coast of waymouth in mine, i just used to put a thick rubber door mat over the side so i didn't catch it with a hook, one thing i will say it you are floating one the top of the water and not cutting through the water like you would in a proper Kayak, so you do need to do more adjusting with your paddle
>>
Dunno where you are in the UK but they come up on gumtree for next to nothing near me all the time. I got a £800 kayak for £120ish a few years back barely used came with paddles and life jackets and other stuff too.. maybe worth looking where you are. Boomers are always trying to cut their losses here, its how I ended up with a £2k road bike for £500 as well

>Are inflatable kayaks just a gimmick?
Nah they’re ok if you get a good one.
Scotland has a very active but mostly invisible whitewater crowd. Find them and you’ll find a cheap creek boat.
Alternatively you could call Pyranha and ask for a cheap 2nd.
Don’t make any Hansel & Gretel jokes.

i'm planning to do some long backpacking trips into the wilderness and my wife really wants me to get one of these personal locater beacons to be safe.

does anyone here use them? and what one do you have? they all look like they cost $300+ which is pretty far out of my budget but i suppose if it helps my wife sleep while i'm gone it's worth it.

There was a forestry commission ranger here a few years back who suffered a fatal heart attack while he was out walking on his beat. I want to say it took something like three weeks to find his body. That was in Britain which this board regularly likes to say is just one big city with no /out/. I know you're probably poor and alone but I have family that would probably appreciate closure sooner than that. At least they might get to track my corpse faster than three weeks with one of these.

heard a story about a guy who did the appalachian trail with walmart shoes he'd buy every so often and slept on the ground...his name was rabbit or something

so all you need are shoes

how useful are hardshell pants? i feel like i would get more wet by wearing them causing my balls to sweat heavily than not wearing them and getting wet from the rain.. so who wears them anyway? alpine climbers?

Cheap hardshell pants (overtrousers) are awful because they lack the better features of high-end trousers.
A good pair with top material, braces and full, 2 way side zips, worn like you'd wear a normal pair of trousers are amazing.
>>
>>1982405
Only time I wear them is during day-long rain storms. I had them while canoeing on the boundary waters and they were fantastic on the day with 40 mph wind and rain.
>>
PNW here, I pretty much always take them. Id say it rains the majority of my backpacking trips, as I largely three season. I keep my rain gear on top, and use a pants/coat/ poncho combo for all day rain.
Even if you sweat in them you'll still be drier than in you're stuck in a good downpour. They make stopping un a storm an option too, as you dont need to keep moving to keep warm. They're also a must for any sort of bushwacking as wet plants can soak your legs in about 10 yards.

Also, if I can pontificate for a second, I think it's taken me until the last few years to shake the trauma of a few early-experience soaked-jeans-in-november trips. I was constantly battling getting wet, fearing those unending cold nights. I think a lot of us who got into it as kids and couldn't talk our way into /buy half decent gear have that mindset. It took a couple years of working outside to realize it's more about when you get wet than preventing it from ever happening. So long as I'm dry when I go to sleep, I'm happy the whole day through. Couple that with knowing I'll always warm up if I have a change of dry gear has made me less concerned. Now if it's just a squall I string up my tarp and take lunch whenever. If it rains longer than that, I make camp a few hours early and dry out the best I can before changing into my sleep clothes.
Also, dont hike in denim

I've been a huge fan of survivor ever since I was a kid and I've always wanted to a survivor type show but innawoods. My ultimate goal is just to create something cool and interesting and maybe from there it could become something more and something greater.
Right now I have the idea for 16 contestants who don't know each other, take them to a national forest and go camping for roughly a week. Preferably these people won't know each other well as it's a game about who you can trust, they will be divided into two teams and several times a day there will be tasks or challenges and the losing team has to vote off a teammate.
I'm just brainstorming right now so any ideas, whether they be challenges or inquiries to clarify, or just general advice would be great. It's a small thing with only a 1000 dollar prize and it's me and 2 camera men to shoot it all. I want to have a camera man for each team and then also do confessionals like survivor as well.
