Would Insulated Coveralls provide enough warmth to work as a suitable lighter weight alternative to a Sleeping Bag? I ask only because I think they would, and I could save myself a lot of room in my pack if so, as my Sleeping Bag takes up far too much!

Only one way to find out: try it. Youll never find out by asking /in/
-10c to still way too cold to be trying to sleep without a sleeping bag
Yeah, your bf will have to fend for himself. Hammocks are generally solo. Expensive too. $130 for a good tarp, $40 for a hammock, $75 for a bugnet, maybe $40 for suspension… it adds up. It’s like buying a new tent, but customized. Then you’ll need an underquilt if you want to use it beyond summer (real summer).
Hmm. Hard to justify for solo too when I'd rather invest in a bivvy I can carry myself for 4 seasons here. Good info though. I may try to use the eno. I do already have a bug net for it, so I would just have to get a tarp. Thanks, bros.
What ground pad are you using and what’s its r-value? I’m sure it’s greater than zero. A hammock will always win when it comes to keeping you cool.

How do I build the stamina for longer hikes? I usually go on about a 1 mile hike, never actually finish a trail, I just start it and get to a certain point, lose my energy, and come back the way I came. I want to actually finish a trail.

What would you suggest?

I was embarrassed to post a 1 mile trail run on Strava because I thought it wasn't long enough to post
>1 mile hike
That's not a hike. That's a stroll.
Rightfully so, lad. You should be embarrassed about one mile.
Thank you anon, I thought the trail would be longer (it wasn't mapped on Strava and only loosely tracked on all trails) I ended up doing two laps then realized it was a shit excuse for a trail and left.

-four insulated walls and a roof.
>I need to train my hamstrings they hurt.
you need to stretch in the parking lot before you start hiking
nobody tells you this but everyone experienced does it
its also a good idea to half way through the day when you have lunch

Is my axe too big /out/? I don't necessarily plan on felling anything bigger than 8" in diameter but want to be able to if I need to
17 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
I dont think the difference in performance is a big as people think. I had a friend go /out/ with me. we wanted a camp fire and found a large dead tree with many branches. to be nice i gave him my silky saw and I used my ax. after a minute or so he started to complain that I was keeping the better tool for myself because I was chopping though branches in a few swings where he was struggling with the saw. we swapped and again I started cutting through branches in a few strokes while he struggled with the ax. it was a good side by side comparison and demonstrated the important point that skill with a tool is required and that for medium sized branches the speed is equivalent. i honestly prefer the ax, because im not nice to my things an have broken a saw before.
The camp/hunting style axes are probably the best pack axes if you're out where you'll genuinely need an axe. Because while small hatchets are neat for light work, if you're doing anything remotely serious you want the ability to do a two-handed swing with a decent amount of lead-up.
if you're talking about what you "need" you can fell 8" trees with a longer folding saw, probably faster if you don't count de limbing it.
i think "boys axe" is the term for these.
you're talking about the ones that are like 3/4 length of a normal axe and 2 handable but not full size?
hard agree. hatchets are for cabins. out in the woods you either want a folding saw or a boys axe depending on how much wood you're processing.
hatchet vs saw if you know how to use both tools equally, the saw usually fells the tree faster and the hatchet usually limbs faster. but the margin is honestly not too big. its not like you're doing much hiking in a day if you're doing the kind of hiking where you're cutting trees down and building fires. you got all day anyways.

I bring a tripod backpacking so that I can take Milky Way photos. If you're into landscapes or wildlife it's fine, but I have no reason to defend these iphone instathots.
I am sorry you had to endure this. If you can tolerate the group, try to find any non-shitty people in the group and break off into a separate group with them. Women may be intimidated by this, but you might meet like-minded men to be friends with.

When 11 P.M. swings around, I need to get out of the house or else my head turns into a mess and I'm really mentally unwell.

I've recently turned to graffiti. It's a way for me to get some of my anger out by defiantly saying "I am here" in a place where I shouldn't be saying it, at least legally. It also keeps me active, because it forces me to go explore weird ass locations that I've never considered in my town where I can get work done in peace, hopefully where someone might see. I've been to abandoned facilities and weird ass parking lots and spots deep in the woods. It's really been a blast and I'm really enjoying myself. It also keeps my mind fresh by making me consider things like line weight and color and texture and stuff like that.

Graffiti has been a lot of fun for me and I've really been enjoying it, but I know I can't always do it. My town had a really active graffiti scene like 7-8 years ago and cracked down super hard on it. People can get sent to jail for fairly innocuous things.

I can't be the only other user who needs to get out of the house after a certain point in the night. There has to be more nighttime /out/doorsmen here. If I'm not doing illegal shit when I get out and about, where should I go? What should I do? I'm fairly new to wanting to be outdoors this much -- what are some activities that you love enjoying after dark outdoors?

do people actually practice to draw graffiti
do you practice on random walls and leave a trail of your mess or practice on somewhere private?
There are public walls where it's oficially allowed to practise.
I like triple a titles where people actually put effort into it
I use to love graffiti when I was a teenager. Growing up, however, I came to see the vast majority of it as a plague, especially when it's done, like in the OP, on the few traditional architecture buildings left. In fact I now strongly believe the hands of people that vandalize such buildings must be crippled. There's plenty of dumps you could put some color into, old blackened cargo train carriages for instance, or chalk some playground outlines for kids, but racing to deface the most pristine and visible spots without even saying anything other than the visual equivalent of "muh dick" is nigger mentality and behavior.

Im with you on this OP.
More then ten years on it and all my outdoor experiences have putting my name up as a goal. Its like having a stupid mission and i wouldnt trade it for anything. For myself im pretty selective with spots and mostly hit stuff noone's gonna see or already fucked up places.
I dont get why the majority is so hateful about graffiti, its a perfect outdoor activity and creative outlet. No remorse on state property.
Im from a country where even setting up a tent is illegal so fuck it

you can wear roman sandals with woolen socks, no worries about leaks and wool insulates even when wet
