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.

Yo , these pussies don’t want you to stack rocks. All rock chads get in here

Go ahead and stack'em, gives me something to kick down.
what are these

A few basement bound autists have developed pathologies obsessing over them, understanding why they do is a dense knot of autism and magical thinking, but in short they think sperging out at rocks makes them not autistic and need their spergout to be observed so they look up rock stacks online, fantasize they are everywhere, and then post the jerkoff session here, then idly fantasize that everyone who tells them to fuck off is in league with the evil autism rocks.
This of course makes them productive lulz cows for trolls who can feed off them indefinitely cause rock tards never learn.

I've never really tried any fly fishing but the size and weight of tenkara fishing equipment is very appealing to me. I used to go fishing as a kid with regular rods and reels but I also had a big bamboo cane pole that seems a lot like primitive tenkara. I live in a great area with plenty of mountain steams and trout ponds. What is a good starter rod? Any miscellaneous tips? What does your tenkara tackle look like?

Insufferable faggots. It's called having conversations with people. You get to ask living beings their opinions etc. Fawk sakes!!

I’m going on my first solo road trip with my dogs to the Rockies tomorrow. I wanna hike mount elbert at some point. Would that be too strenuous for an 8 year old medium sized dog? Would elevation change be too much. I’m a retard so word nicely please

Like I said, probably getting them used to it as kittens. My ex had a ten year old house cat that she wanted to introduce to hiking, and I had to explain to her that it was way too late in that thing's life to get it to go on hikes.

Dog will be fine on a walk. Give water regularly.
Don’t risk it. I’ve hiked a handful of 14ers and always leave my dog at home. Get a rover or drop them at my place to keep my pup company. Only seen dogs on trails this strenuous a couple of times. Plus you’d have to carry a metric fuckton of water.
Your dog will outlast you every time. Bring plenty of water and bowl for it, and watch out for venomous snakes (Im not familiar with your area but it seems everyone has at least one species). Bring a long leash, or a remote with an e-collar if you want to let your dog roam.
Most of all, enjoy it.
You’ll learn new things about your dog, and the experience is one that you’ll never forget. Just you and your faithful sidekick, out in the wild.
Godspeed, friend.

I have my sights set on a Garmin GPSmap 64S GPS and was wondering if a computer was necessary to use this? Or could I use it straight out of the box? The reason I ask is because I do not have a computer or laptop yet. I'd like to use my GPS to hike to shooting spots in the forest and eventually find my way back to my car.

Also, what is your opinion on small wrist mounted GPSes?

Garmin. You can either upload your own maps or if youre a complete consoomer you can buy them from Garmin. v4ds7

I had to use this app recently and while I enjoyed what it did it drained the fuck out of my battery. Will a Garmin 32x suffice if I just need to know what direction I'm facing on a map, and where I am in relation to certain points?
The 32x is £208, what can I get for a bit more, Would like to keep it under £270.
>200 dollars

Garmin are a pain in the ass. You have to connect the device to add every single .gpx file you plan to take.

The whole point of alltrails is you can download maps for offline use on the fly, either pre-set trails or you can download custom areas with whatever layers you want, and also in the desktop app you can import gpx files and make your own maps.

It is just SO MUCH EASIER to use your phone and alltrails. They don't pay me, I'm not a shill, it just wastes so much more time to be stuck in a garmin/standalone unit.

Just bring a backup charger for your phone.

>drained the fuck out of my battery

set your phone to airplane mode, you only need the gps chip, data signal isn't needed to get a lock on your position on a cell phone

What are the downsides, besides weight to just carrying a frying pan to cook with?
It's all just heated metal in different shapes.

Weight and time are the downsides. So aside from weight? Time. Get a jetboil with the pot. It's made to head well and fast and is pretty light. I like mine a lot.

>Pots can fry, pans can't boil.
They can, but yeah, a pot does better at frying than a pan does at boiling.
So OP, just get a somewhat shallow pot (aluminium or titanium) and you can do both things.
Or if you're a consoomer just buy one of those cheap chink kits with both a small alu pot and a small alu pan. For $15 and reasonably lightweight, it's hard to beat.
can you use any gas on a jetboil? the one thing stopping me from buying one is that the gas refills cost 4x as much as regular gas.
its bigger it weights more, its more inconvenient to pack and you will need something to cover it with else you will end up with geese rubbed all over you stuff. also if you plan on boiling stuff you will also need a boiling pot. Personal I carry a big titanium pot thats short but quite fat so I can boil and fry stuff if I want.
>can you use any gas on a jetboil?
As long as the canister connector is the same, yeah. So any threaded canister, pretty much.

External frame packs are facing extinction, and I believe it's mostly already passed that point.

I was looking to upgrade my vintage Kelty 2900 to it's modern counterpart and find this. Am now finding this is the case for almost all manufacturers.

Where you do get your external frame packs today? Have you made the change yet? Are you still using vintage gear?

paulsen is pretty over the top for sure. my kids fucking love his books though, especially my son who is really into the outdoors. the adventures of francis tucket were my son's favorites of his books, and less obnoxious than hatchet.

Can't wait
I still like the story, but I reread it again on a trip a couple months ago and was blown away at how frequently he does the repetition in his writing. It's exhausting to read at times. Hatchet would probably be half as long without it.
yeah it's annoying. the rest of that series is even obnoxiouser than the first one and the stories are worse

What are your thoughts on these flat pack metal containers? Any good for storing outdoorsy stuff?
doubt it the flat roof will collect water and it will seep through and rust eventually, maybe angle some roof felt on top to stop the water pooling.
The roof section has two integral gutters for effective rainwater dispersal to all four corners of the container

Hunting Causes Pain and Suffering

A mere four percent of the human U.S. population hunts, compared to 22 percent - over 70 million people - who enjoy watching wildlife alive. Wild animal watchers spend over $20 billion more than hunters on their activities that respect, rather than harm animals.

Despite increasing public opposition, hunting is permitted on 60 percent of U.S. public lands, including in over 50% of wildlife refuges, many national forests and state parks; on federal land alone (more than half a billion acres), more than 200 million animals are killed every year (McCarthy).

Quick kills are rare, and many animals suffer prolonged, painful deaths when hunters severely injure but fail to kill them. Bow hunting exacerbates the problem, evidenced by dozens of scientific studies that have shown that bow hunting yields more than a 50 percent wounding and crippling rate. Some hunting groups promote shooting animals in the face or in the gut, which is a horrifically painful way to die.

Several states allow a spring bear hunt during the months when bears emerge from hibernation. These bears are not only still lethargic, which makes them easy targets for hunters, but many of the females are either pregnant or lactating. Mother bears are often shot while out and about foraging, while hiding their cubs in trees or leaving them in their dens. When mother bears are killed, their nursing cubs have little to no chance of survival as they will either starve or be killed by predators.

The stress that hunting inflicts on animals — the noise, the fear, and the constant chase — severely restricts their ability to eat adequately and store the fat and energy they need to survive the winter. Hunting also disrupts migration and hibernation, and the campfires, recreational vehicles and trash adversely affect both wildlife and the environment. For animals like wolves, who mate for life and have close-knit family units, hunting can destroy entire communities.

I know its bait. Same exact text has been posted before. But I really want an answer (even by a shill) about that gut shot shit. No hunter in the world would ever intentionally gut shot an animal. Bait or not, I want a reply on that.

It gets good from the fourth volume when it gets more philosophical and the genre changes from a generic shounen sports manga to a psychological thriller. Honestly got me into climbing from a hiking background
I had a go on one of the speed climbing walls, shit was way harder than I was expecting
I think it's rated 5.10c in my gym. Took me like 2 minutes my first time.
Speaking of grades indoor grades are a fucking joke in my area, a 6 indoor is like a 4 outside. That's across multiple climbing centers.
