Has anyone done or researched the Shikoku Henro (pilgrimage) in Japan? I would like to do it within a couple years and I'm starting to train walking long distances more and more each day.

I don't know about Guenon, but Evola's not very /ted/core at all. He praised Japan for being technologically industrious while still being Trad™, none of his recommendations to Mussolini were anti-tech, and in Ride the Tiger he remarks that weak souls flee from mechanized urban environments and worship "the return to nature".
That being the case, he did write pic related about the transcendent aspects of mountaineering, which is highly recommended /out/ reading.

Any anons here experienced with camping and hiking in the national parks, late september and october?

I want to camp and hike in a few of the national parks, but i don't really want to book my sites a month+ in advance. I've found a few parks (yosemite and acadia) that are just completely full for august most of september already. some also close in early october.

can any anon here recommend me a good park to hike and camp (campgrounds, not wilderness), that i can realistically book about a week before i go there? somewhere where there's not gonna be snow in october and preferably good autumn colors. final requirement, i have to be able to get to the park without my own car.

I worked for NPS in the Southwest for a few years--I'd recommend going to Canyonlands in September/October. It's my favorite national park, and the temperatures aren't so scorching around that time. You don't need permits and it's a large park. Secondly, you should know that Canyonlands is divided into three sections (Island in the Sky, The Needles, The Maze) and not many tourists go to The Needles District. There's absolutely phenomenal first-come first-serve camping there. You can reserve a select t few spots and if you want to do so, here's the link: https://www.nps.gov/cany/planyourvisit/camp-need.htm

As for specific backpacks, you do need a permit. That said, the permits aren't hard to ascertain (or, at least, they weren't). I got mine a few weeks in advance. The Needles has some good backpacking sites and routes, you should make your way to Druid Arch. I would not recommend doing The Maze unless you're experienced. If you're going to backpack Canyonlands, always call the rangers for updates on water and where it can be filtered. Trails aren't as well marked as they are in other parks, and you should feel comfortable following cairns and using a map. It can get REALLY hot in The Needles, especially in this first section called the oven. Bring more water than you think you need. I bring five liters to start if only because water sources can be a little unreliable.

Moab is also just a sweet town with good bars. If you don't feel like camping after your backpack, The Adventure Inn is like 90 bucks or so in the off-season and it's a solid motel. Good staff.

Finally, if you want to do some great backpacking outside of NPS, check out Coyote Gulch Canyon in Escalante National Monument. If I recall correctly, there's no parking/camping permit and it's all disperse. Beautiful trail with plenty of water sources.

Seriously though, I have an apple tree in my garden, pic related.

It was there when I moved in and I can claim no credit for its growth.
Are these things safe to eat as is? Can I basically just give them a wash and get stuck in?
13 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
If those are really apples, you can eat them just like that. You don't even need to wash them.
If they're hard and sour even once they're ripe, they'll taste much better after being stored for a few months in a cold a dark room (storage apples), while if they're sweet and juicy, you should use them immediately instead of keeping them (table apples). (Simplified - there's also baking apples and cider apples, but nobody in their right mind would plant just a single tree of those)

However, given how rough the skin looks in the pic, they might be quinces rather than apples. If that roughness is fluff, they are. Quinces can be eaten raw too, but taste bad. They're much better when boiled or baked.
Thanks anon. Yeah, I need to "manicure" the brook and fire pit now... plants some spruce/for trees, and figure put how to encourage the mossy forest floor to gro back. Fawk.

I would love to add wild blueberry and lingonberry around the land (it grows up there naturally in fields etc).
Adding some apples would be a fun addition. Do apples do ok in acidic soils?

You may want to also check out parts of the Driftless Area for driving/motorcycling, especially near like Baraboo (Devils Lake State Park is kind of a must-see for most Wisconsinites), and if you want a more general trip in the state, Door County is pretty good. Lots of kitschy shops, wineries, distilleries, a yacht club, and restaurants up there, then Newport State Park is seen as the "cutting teeth" destination in a lot of Wisconsin /out/ communities.

Yeah I’m up north of Green Bay around Pembine area, and the good woods doesn’t really start until here imo. If I was a little farther north it wouldn’t hurt my feelings any - it gets a little touristy in the summer. Lots of decent logging roads and such around here if you want to do truck/atv things. Plenty of small inland lakes for fishing, and DNR encounters are pretty rare so that’s a plus. Tons of various ranges/clubs for bow, black powder, etc between Oconto and here. I’m sure you’re not wanting to travel, but I figured I’d drop a few lines in the event you wind up exploring this neck of the woods. GL down south, I’m sure you’ll find something given enough time to explore.

How effective are cigarettes for making mosquitos and other bugs go away? I don't smoke but i figure they could be a cheap means of getting smoke into the air instead of a campfire in our dry forest.

Smoking is nice and unless you have the self control of a 5 year old like most americans its not a big deal to smoke, most doctors I know not only smoke but dont give a shit if its not severe addiction, not harmless but overblown. Anyway you shouldn’t be smoking to repel bugs just burn coils, if you’re using smoking to repel anything it should be to repel and filter certain people from interacting with you not bugs

Going on a multi-day hike with my dog for the first time tomorrow. Any tips on being innawoods with doggo that isn't immediately obvious? I've transitioned her to dehydrated food to cut down on our loads a bit, even with her stuff my pack is well under 40 lbs (she's carrying 4 lbs of her own load pic related).

Regarding her poopoo i plan on burying it, same as mine, away from water sources. Anything wrong with that?

Outdoor Research gaiters seem to be the standard. American's like all in one solutions usually because we are fat and lazy, so you see more wellies, boots, or tech pant recommendations. But think OR has a gore-tex version. Going to try Swazi's gaiters soon, since they make the best fleece around.

I bought these exact ones. they worked great in balls deep, wet snow.
use beeswax on your shoes. makes them completely waterproof. can stand in a river all day

I live in Gatineau. The Ottawa area is really only good for having big city conveniences in a medium city package with great access to shield terrain and canoe-camping. Drive an hour north or north-west of Ottawa and you're in the start of the sort of classic lake-strewn woodland out of a group of seven painting. Honestly though from what you've said you want out of Canada you should go out west. Nothing else people call mountains in this country compares to the Western cordillera except maybe the Torngats but you won't be living up where they are.

I'm hiking the Grand Canyon with my dad in a couple months, rim to rim in a single day, he's done it before so he knows what to expect physically. Is there anything I can do living in a really flat area besides running up and down hills repeatedly for the elevation changes? I already do 15 mile hikes like once a week, so Im not concerned about the 25 miles in a day.

Anything else I should know about this place? It looks tremendous

for anything boomers might forget or not explain

god a stairmaster sounds super cringe, i'd rather run up and down stadium steps. that way i get use to going down elevation too.


i meant a huge DSLR im not going to take lol, but yeah something like pic related thats the size of a phone i could do that. as long as it can fit in my pocket and im not worried about it breaking.
bro these are $500 lmao. I'm looking for something that picture mogs my phone, but is under about say $100 so if i break it or don't use it again for a while it's still worthwhile.

Is that so cheap that it won't even be superior to phone cameras?
You're active enough, you'll be fine
>Anything else I should know about this place?
It's hot. I nearly passed out from heat stroke doing it.
>but is under about say $100 so if i break it or don't use it again for a while it's still worthwhile.
Smartphones have surprisingly good lenses and CCDs these days. Just make sure you have enough light (which should be a problem in GC).

The next step up is some point and shoot. I have one that's water proof to 100 feet and shock proof to 7 feet. It was a bit more then 100 bux, but I like worth it to me. Pics aren't NatGeo quality but with decent light beat any phone. And it's light enough to strap to your breast strap so you can whip it out quickly.

But if you want NatGeo quality pictures, you have to go with a DSLR. That said, you will take the best pictures with the camera you have with you, not the great camera you left in the car. If you always have your phone with you, I'd just use that. And if you want to take great pictures, you need to spend time taking the pictures with framing, angle, lighting, etc, etc. The way I see it, if you want to take pictures on a hike, go with your phone or a point-n-shoot. If you want great pictures, you get a DSLR and go on photography expeditions.
