Anyone here make squeeze boxes for practicing prior to entering the cave? Personally, I think they are a must for safety. The idea of getting stuck or having your friend get stuck, dying, and you can't get past them to get back out doesn't sound appealing.

/out/ musical instruments thread

What are your favorite gitfiddles and poorwhistles to bring along on the great outdoors? I currently bring a banjo and a harmonica, but the banjo is still bulky to pack into a kayak or bring on a trail. Been thinking about a cheap mandolin to cut down on space and maybe worry less if it takes a good knock. Anyone have any recommendations on one that doesn't suck ass and is <$300?

Post stories, pics, make fun of other peoples instruments etc

They use a few types. The hardnesses vary greatly depending on if they use the normal stainless or high carbon stainless on that knife. Their normal stainless is absolute garbage and has a hardness of something around 52 while the high carbon stainless has a more acceptable 57ish hardness.

>>
>>1652301
>Basic tips
Pack light.
Take it easy when you start, if I havn't had the chance to get myself properly ready I start on half my daily mileage then build up.
Listen you're body, unless you're an old hand at this you will have to take rest days. A day off is well with it if it means finishing the route.
Use poles and learn how to descend with them.
Be a tortoise not a hare.
>Stretching
Basic stretching is all you need to do unless you have some special condition. I just stretch my hammy's, calves, and quads at the end of the day.
>Form
Nothing to it really, don't take huge steps, just stick to your natural gait. There's no special way to walk.
If you're doing something with a lot of vertical you may want to learn how to test step. It's nothing special but helps a little.
>>
>>1652301
Good shoes, light pack, proper pacing, learning to read maps, stretch, learn to realise when you've pushed yourself too far, and when you could keep going if you had the will.
>>
>>1653978
>learning to read maps
Depends on the sort of long distance walking anon is talking about.
I agree that map reading is a fudamental out skill. However, realistically hike long distance trails don't require much navigation at all, they do offer a great chance to learn how to map read though.
I would say dead reckoning would be a more useful skill for the majority of trailed and waymarked routes.
>>
>>1652301
Define long distance.
Proper feet care is always the answer desu.

I'm not just talking about camping stuff, I think it goes without saying that Montana is one of the best for it, what's it like in general? How do outsiders do there?

Oftentimes when I go to write a shitpost or tell someone to fuck off, I realize what I'm doing and it's cause for a little introspection. The reason I sometimes fall into shitposting is because the despair I feel about my own life infects how I see the lives of others. Most people do it, if even a little bit. People are just like that sometimes.

Hey /out/

I got really interested in stargazing over the summer and I'm looking for a reliable, beginner-friendly telescope. The goal is to closely view stars and planets through light pollution (can see constellations well with naked eye, but never the milky way here).

Thanks

craigslist. lots of Christmas scopes get their new home there. plenty of people don't even care about getting a good price for it, even if its in brand new condition, and will often just sell it for $200 less than they bought it for.

you can see planets even in the city, but FORGET about having any fun star wise. you are going to need to go out to the country for that.

Here's the thing. Stars are dots magnified or not. But if you want portable and simple get a decent 80 or 90mm short throw refractor. Look at Orion for good options. It won't be the best but it will be better than regular store shit. Also get a few decent Plossl eyepieces. A 32mm and 10mm would be good for wide field and low power planetary. If you like that then you will by then know what you will want for you next more serious scope.
>>
>>1654669
Magnification isn't nearly as big of a factor as light gathering, which is primarily determine by diameter and focal length. 8" is considered to be the ideal beginner diameter. Yes, the stars themselves will be white points, more or less, but the greater light gathering power better reveals the nebulae, galaxies and such.

A short scope is going to be very disappointing and not likely to provide much inspiration to stick with it and go deeper. Also, deep space objects require one capable of 2" eye pieces for wowing satisfaction.
>>
I've got a cheapo Skywatcher Heritage 130p, works great, only costs like 150 bucks.

I can't be bothered with driving miles to find a decent dark site, so 5 inches is pretty much the sweet spot for backyard stargazing. I can't be bothered lugging around anything much bigger. If you're into astrophotography you're probably best off with something massive because you need some ludicrous mount to get a DSLR and tracking for long exposures working.
