I honestly feel that most humans should live in cities and other dense urban slums because the more people that have access to the outdoors make the wilderness disappear even faster.

Like all these fuckoids who wanna take cute artsy pics on a mountain but don't even have the courtesy to learn leave no trace skills and just prowl all over the place.

Anyone else feel the same?

I'm the anon who was planning to walk from PA to Seattle. I ended up taking a train to Oregon instead. I ripped up my return ticket and am going to walk from Seattle to PA. I could use some tips or information on how to survive the trip. I estimate the trip will last roughly 3 months if I walk 8 hours a day. Have any other anons here attempted a trip like this and how did it go?

Eat my fucking willy
Why is skillet glamping?
Coleman two burner for car camping and a tiny little propane jet boil or whatever for backpacking. I have a msr dragonfly for low key car camping , pretty heavy and overkill for Appalachian backpacking though.

What would be a good belt set up for someone who’s going to be hiking/carrying a ruck? Or would a chest rig be the better move?
I’m not sure if a belt or a chest rig would be better for hiking and if a belt is better how I should set it up, most of the stuff I see online about setting up belts is geared to matches and stuff not for hiking 12 miles up and down some hard terrain.

>missing out on the ribz front pack meme before it was discounted years ago

Unfortunate for you
If you wanna LARP, go for the chest rig. If you only want to look cringeworthy go for some civilian cheat pack. (those are good for fishing)

I'm all for waist bags (fanny packs) and belts to carry shit for dayhikes, but with a backpack on, not only will you look like a cringeworthy fag (unavoidable) it'll probably be uncomfortable with the back pack putting weight on the belt every so often (if you can even wear both at the same time with any comfort).
seems like half the posters on this board are baiters or larping faggots. I cant imagine paying enough attention to others while out to spend time judging them for their fashion choices.
$15 Ebay LBV is good for carrying tools and stuff in front or slightly to sides but when I hung a sustainment pouch on the back to try and make mini-back pack it felt all wrong, even without any meaningful weight..

No, Texas has few cunts phone poster. Yes, even account for all the trash in both states, California has objectively more. Of all the places I've been in the US, the only place I hate more passionately than Cali is DC.
no you don't see real suppressors at ranges

you see that on blm land lmao
30s yes, all the time, as well as lightly non-compliant guns. (Shit that'd be legal non-NFA in other states.) NFA items absolutely not though, way too much LE lurking around most ranges.
That's not socialism, though. There's an entire sub-group of right wing libertarianism that basically supports similar stuff.
Gold panning is not banned in California, however there are some insane regs that the AMRA are trying to get overturned, such as needing a huge garbage bag on the end of sluice boxes to stop the sediment from going back into creeks, all pump operated tools being labeled dredges and sniping in rivers being technically banned because its kills fish somehow. All in all the regs are insane but seemingly rarely enforced unless the place your digging is easy to access.

>he lets dea define anything for him
Is marijuana still a schedule 1?
No, it's a totally valid point. 100% of Britain's problems are down to the class system. It's bizarre and maddening, but the reality is that you can be a complete retard and still succeed if you went to Eton, and you can be the cleverest, hardest-working person in the world and still fail if you grew up on a council estate.
Human cultures can be so ridiculously nonsensical.

I remeber growing up with a black friend in the American Midwest. Stayed friends till about junior high but slowly stopped wanting to associate with me and became increasingly cold or rude when we would hang out. Finally called him out for being a douche and asked what his problem was, and he straight up admitted that he felt pressured to spend more time with black friends and in black culture due to his dad's direction (he was biracial white mom/blk dad). Told him if he felt he was too good to hang out with white people then he could fuck off. He ended up in prison within 5 years. Maddening is just the right word.

Climbing General #17

A place to talk about climbing in any aspect (trad, sport, bouldering, aid, alpine, etc).

Rock Climbing is a dangerous sport that can cause loss of life, limb, eyesight, or sanity.

Yeah i take all my kit but then make my impusle choices depending on where im at. Slowly replacing my old krabs, thats why some look brand new aha.

yeah thats what I saw, looks pretty sweet. Seems practical.

Yeah i climb in the UK. Mostly in the Peaks area, stanage, Wharncliffe etc. but ive been over to giggleswick a few times
I'm heading there in May, I'll be based just north of Leeds for a few weeks.

You got any moderate climbs you can recommend?
Specific climbs at stanage? Or in the peaks in general?

I'd avoid stanage on a weekend.. very busy. IF you can go, go for a weekday treck.

Places in the Peaks area i'd say
>Burbage North
>Burbage South Valley (bouldering)
>Curbar Edge
>Froggatt Edge
>Wharncliffe (kinda unknown so not as busy)
>Horseshoe Quarry (sport climbing, kinda busy)

As for specific climbs.. youre best of buying guides for the area.. 'Eastern Grit' & 'Wester Grit' is a good choice.
I'll usually have:
1 on gri-gri
2 on ATC (this can change, if we both have gri-gri's I'll just swap the 2nd ATC to a prussik or something since we are most likely rapping)
1 on big sling for 3-point anchors
1 on double length sling for makeshift PAS/bolted anchors/etc.
1 on my actual PAS

I tend to use use regular carabiners on slings a lot or cannibalize as needed. I make it work. I don't see the need for a locker at every connection point as stated >>2074877

Also, what shoes are those hi-tops you have? They look cool.
I do some lifting for antagonist training and jacking up stabilizers, but for agonist related I don't find it as useful.

You definitely want Idaho.

I currently live in Central Oregon and it's great, but if I had the opportunity I would move to Idaho in a second. The /out/ there is just slightly worse than here IMO, but the people, politics, freedom, taxes, etc is just much better. Also note that Idaho has the fastest growing housing prices in the country right now.
2020 cali exodus. its ongoing
Give it some time. Portland used to be a skinhead city 20 years ago.
Eastern Oregonian here, can confirm everything you said. Luckily I got my property back in 2015 before housing cost skyrocketed. Probably gonna cash out as soon as I can and move somewhere else.

I live in the Carolinas and my lease is up at the end of the month. I’ve been thinking of purchasing a bike and making the 200-300 mile trip down the east coastline.

I’ve done weeks of camping and what not, but I’ve never tried anything like this. I have around $500 and a revolver. I’ve been doing research into bikes. The plan would be to make my way down there over the course of a couple weeks and then transfer my job to a store down there. I can move my stuff into storage. I’d likely be ‘homeless’ for up to a month.

How practical is this? Is Florida a good end goal? I personally hate cyclists but I know there’s backroads and trails. I don’t have a car so I think biking is the best option. I’m about to turn 30 and this would be my first long term solo outdoor experience.

Any advice or input would be appreciated. I have two weeks to finish planning. Thanks.

ive shot one of them point blank in the head at night (it was a bright night) when i was in my hammock from five feet away, it spazzed out for like 15 seconds and so i was like "whatever im going back to bed" and then like half a minute later fucker gets up calmly and just walks away, Context was i woke up bc it was just standing near me and when i leaned up it did that thing animals do when they like jolt their head to you while doing a little shake which spooked me cuz im not about to get mauled so i leveled by pistol and shot it, problem is is that it is 25.acp so basically no stopping power. Ive seen four individual boars at one time and one of them is fucking massive.

the issues are the fact that its already hot as heel and i feel super gross after one day out, the island is dense too in some parts and filled with big snakes that hide the the shrubs that cover the trail up to five feet tall.


images are too big to post and the vids are like 25 gigs
preciate it bro, ive been to quite a few of those but ill definitely check the others out
I don't really have much you haven't mentioned, but Black Creek Ravine Conservation Area and Bayard Conservation Area are both great for either day or one nighters on the weekends, both have campsites right on the river if you fish
as for urbex I've only really gone into the the old time union building near that new apartment development between riverside and downtown but you have to watch out cause sometimes cops like to hang out in the lot
Ihve heard alot about black creek and other called tomahawk something but I havent been yet. There are a ton more places that are around Jacksonville i have been too, namely on the Georgia border and between Ocala.
OP here. Still at work but this is great. Thank you sir.

6 feet tall and white

I’ll read into Jacksonville tonight. It’s the closest city in Florida to me. I’m also big on fishing and I hear Florida has everything.
Tomahawk Park is more of a smallish park that has like a one mile trail, pretty okayish if you're into trail running

I agree.
There is not one over weight man, young or older, who does not dream of losing the fat.
Being fat(ter) limits mobility and overtime, wears out your joints years ahead of their time.
/Out/ males and females know every step is a step away from being a prisoner of bad eating, fat fat jelly rolls, and body insecurity.
They need encouragement to reject the fat and embrace the escape to healthy
