How do I learn, effectively, how to step better when hiking?

My knees are not what they were 15 years ago when I was doing most of my hiking, and I encounter much greater difficulty getting downhill now. I actively worry about mud. I have a bad left knee that I could injure worse by slipping.

So basically I need to learn the art of how to properly step and walk the best way. I figure this must be enough of a topic of conversation for some tips or info to exist?

I should get poles right. I kinda like the idea of a staff more because you can more easily intercept face height spiderwebs with it

they directly tell you with every pole not to put your weight on the pole though? how can i trust some collapsible thing at that

dunno why you'd refer to me as if i'm a youngster when i commented about my knees 15 years ago. :P
They could have turned to crap now, and the current ones may be shit, but I trust my Black Diamond, and put weight on it. I'm scrawny though. I've had it for around 6 years. Since they sell them in pairs now I gave the other one to the gf, who is a spazz, and hers is still good too.
I didn't know that you weren't supposed to put weight on them, but I started with sticks, followed by an old ski pole, so I never read the instructions when I upgraded. And if you aren't supposed to put weight on them, why do they make meme ones with shock absorbers?
Telescoping poles are also good when you need to lash them to your pack and use both hands. Some UL dudes use them for tarp set ups too
I'll check it out, but $100 for a pole is the type of ridiculous cocksuckery i'm not gonna be involved in. I'm sure there is some identical chinese equivalent for $20
Saw a an old dude on the AT who chose a correctly size ski pole. Can troll goodwill and ebay for them. Make sure its taller than your normal walking needs so you can raise up for downhill. Wrap a big section for a handle.
>People with 2 poles often don't put weight on them, poking and dragging them uselessly, while looking like fem spiders.
So long as OP is not a retard, two poles generally should be an improvement over just one.

Hey lads im in Mississippi and want to do some camping but its currently 98 degrees and humid as shit. Is there any way to make camping bearable or should i just wait till winter like i usually have to do?

I camp with only a bed roll and thin sheet because the sleeping bag will be too hot and the bugs will not allow you to cowboy camp. If you get drunk enough it’s not that bad.
honestly just lots of drinking water and acclimating yourself in day-to-day helps if you can. Find ways to get outside more during the workweek, have a shitty warehouse job like mine where there's no AC, etc

I've been twice. I recommend the Gokyo Lakes trek. The views are epic and a lot of the accommodation is free if you eat at the restaurant. Meals are only around $5, so it's a pretty cheap place to visit.

I have had it with my family. I help with chores, pay rent, I am a good son, but all my bitch mom does is scream at me for playing games or smoking a bit of weed. I have a cuben fibre tent and want to leave my home for good and live in the woods. I have $3,000 cash, all the basic gear for hiking and I know how to forage. Any suggestions for first steps?

>ask for ID
>get upset when someone replies with ID
It's a joke, buddy. Not every post needs to be srs bzns. I'm not even the one who asked what it was.
I'm not that anon but for some reason those fucking lids hold on to sharpie like mad. Made pickles and some of my lids have multiple colors and bits of markings on them because between the brushed finish and I guess the heat from canning, they hold on to that ink like crazy. And I often use alcohol to remove ink on everything else.
Well I found something out a few days ago. I can't believe you can even eat parts of the pokeweed plant; I was told everything on it is poisonous bad shit that will make your guts feel awful.
>American pokeweed is a member of the Phytolaccaceae, the Pokeweed family. Members of the family are found around the world in tropical and subtropical distribution with a few species that occur in temperate areas. About 16 genera and 100 species are recognized in the family. The genus Phytolacca contains about 25 species which range from herbs to shrubs to tall trees. Two native species of pokeweed are recognized in North America, one found across much of North America and one found in California and the southwestern U.S. A few tropical species have been introduced unintentionally in imported products or intentionally as ornamentals.
>This species may flower year around in southern states, and May to October in northern states. The entire plant is poisonous causing a variety of symptoms, including death in rare cases. The berries are especially poisonous. Young leaves and stems when properly cooked are edible and provide a good source of protein, fat and carbohydrate. Regional names for the plant include poke, poke sallet, poke salad, and pokeberry. The fruits are important food for mockingbirds, northern cardinals, and mourning doves. The name “phytolacca” means red dye plant.

>Young leaves and stems when properly cooked are edible
>provide a good source of protein, fat and carbohydrate
I would have never known. This shit is everywhere in my state. Anyone have some cooking videos? I'd love to try if I knew it wouldn't kill me/my guts.
It's one of those "boil x minutes in y changes of water" plants that seem like they can't be worth it when lambsquarters and nettles exist. Then again my back yard is full of it so I think I'll try it next year. You're supposed to get it before it blooms so too late for this year.

Do you go outdoors, or do you only make up stories and pretend to on the internet?
9 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Honestly I thought this board was about the great outdoors but it seems like 50% of the people just want to signal how cool they really our and how they are real outdoorsmen.
I live in one of the most urbanized areas of the world so unless I travel half of Europe civilization won't be far we don't have the giant planes of the Americas.
This year I wanted to go on hiking but then the great floods happened in Europe. Probably half the trails are destroyed especially in some places in Germany I wanted to go. But I have been hiking probably 12-13 times. Not counting the hunting because that's mostly in pretty urbanized area.
one should do both, to be healthy

Some people call me a larper but I've always worn wool. My great granddaddy even raised sheep for wool and meat.
You don't know shit about farming, obviously. The alternative to grazing sheep in the mountains where nothing else will grow anyway is what, exactly? A synthetics factory. Go talk to a sheep farmer and try learn a thing or two, you dickhead.

There is no bigger larp than play pretending mountain man in a 20 acre wood lot surounded by houses, mcdonald's and light polution. It is even more embarrassing to spends thousands of dollars on equipment to play pretend in these designated wooden lots. You are all faggots, I hope biden glasses every national forest

Because 95% live in the major metropolitan areas- Miami, Tampa/St Pete, Jax, Orlando and Tallahassee/panhandle or other coastal towns and cities.
It is, see >>2179528
So basically, you're calling all the east coast posters larpers? I agree with that.
Why doesn't anyone go burning down row crops in the disappearing prairies and Great Plains? With an accidental cigarette, ofcourse. In Minecraft.
Where are the 20 acre wooded lots in the middle of the city?
