Op is going to die less then a month into this, if he is not dead already (day1) from no food. Lose the radio, ipad, do one portable charger for phone, reduce headphones to one or two, def only earbuds, consider ditching book all together or for smaller book. Fill the extra space with high fat foods (fat is twice as calorie dense as proteins or carbs) best is probably trailmix for having good amounts of everything you need.
>>
>>1936829
Watch out for the 'tree people' in Oregon. You can only see them with thermals apparently, so you should be fine.
>>
You guys are pussies OP will be fine and love his trip

For the first month of his walk theres a gas station every 5 miles. He'll have constant support as he gets good at this.
>>
>>1937342
Agree with the gear advice.
>>
>>1937346
This is a good point. Hes posted hes going to do it fasting, so my assumption was he wasnt planning to buy food either. If hes following major roads, and planning to buy food, then he'll be fine. Still seems il advised to not have one days worth of food on you at all atimes and just eat what you come across, relying on the day food for back up or ration in an emergency.

Holy shit that's him? Welp....
>>
>>1936829
2 pairs of everything, excpt socks and boxers, 4 is good
waterproof gloves, why?
ditch the flaslight, get a headlamp, trying to get stuff done at camp with only one hand is a pain, as well as walking holding a flashlight
radio, ipad. dump"em, phone is enough
I'd go with one charger, but why not
3 pairs of earbud, wtf? 1, if it breaks it's not like it's vital and you can't do without 'til the next town
toilet paper, meh.paper tissues are less bulky and will stay dry if your bag gets wet
Ditch the shampoo. Get aleppo soap, you can wash skin, teeth and dishes with it, less bulky, and won't spill in your bag.
Tools ok, 2 knives might be overkill
I'd do one water botlle and a camelback. In areas with easy acces to water one bottle is enough, and you fold the empty camelback in your bag. When water is scarce, the camelback will give you more autonomy.

2 ponchos. One is enough, if it rips it's no biggie to go without 'til next store, especially if uou have a waterproof jacket
extra ziplocks. yup never too much of those. use them to store all the gear, it'll add a wter protection layer, and make it easir to empty and fill the bag (3-4 ziplocks insted of over a dozen items, and the bag slide against one another, easier to fill your pack)
book, ditch it, get an e-reader app on your phone
sharperner, unnecessary
duct tape yes, cordage no, useless, you're hiking not mountaineering
the rest is ok.

what I'd add
one or two dry meals just in case, weighs nothing, cost nothing, and takes no space
a gps app on your phone, ideally precise enough to show you backroads and tracks. If you're going to walk from A to B and there's path through the woods rather than along the highway, you might as well
a baseball cap, combined with jacket it's perfect to keep your face dry walking in the rain
a rag, to wipe stuff, grab hot stuff, if it's hot you can soak it and put it on your head.
>>
>>1937828
also, a tarp and some paracord.(i said ditch cordage because it sounds like you're taking rope) you won't always have a shelter a,d if it's raining you'll need something to sleep under
>>
How's it going OP?

Jesus Christ this was so preferable it hurt.

OP here's some life advice if you're reading. Set realistic fucking goals. You set yourself up for failure with this ridiculously stupid fucking idea, and EVERYONE TOLD YOU it was ridiculous as well.

You need to start setting realistic goals. Start counting calories and practice basic fucking discipline. Don't order out food ever, don't buy junk food, weigh what you eat and keep track of every calorie. It's just that easy. Now stop being a depressive whinger and start making SMART goals

OP, your idea is good but you are to young so you have no heart.

here from fit

i think you can lose a lot of weight, like at least 40lbs if you dont pig out the whole time.

is this that trail that americans hike? i forget the name but i heard hippy hiker chicks are easy af. good luck and please report back to fit.

also just for yourself - take "before" photos now

and for your gear - ditch the heavy wool sweater for something lighter weight like fleece.

waterproof gloves? why?

flashlight should be the smallest one you can find.

radio is dead weight but its up to you.

being ipad OR phone imo

bring 1 charger and 1 set of earbuds

bring 1 knife or just the multitool,

i have a "steripen" which is a great water purification system, but depending how light your filter is maybe that's ok too.

bring 1 poncho only

hand warmers are dead weight.

book is dead weight

sharpener - eithter knife of multitool is your sharpener

bug repellant is dead weight imo, if they are bad enough that you need it, repellant doesn't do shit.

You're probably thinking of the Appalachian Trail a.k.a. normie central.
If you're looking to hike and smash, you'd be better off doing more worthwhile hikes and then using Tinder in whatever location you're staying in. You can even fake your location before you leave for your trip to get more time to chat with girls in the area before you leave.

really wonder if OP got on a bus home today

I'm jealous and all and want to leave FL myself and think Oregon is of the best states if no the best place to live here in the USA.

But how could you even do that without hitch hiking you madman? I'd at least use a train hopping strategy, but don't want a trespass while carrying a knife, automatic felony in FL you know if you trespass with a weapon. >>1936870
Why are you people even angry about? If he's neet like me he's have to walk/hike/hop.


>>1936829
Honestly just walk to Ocala National forest. You CANNOT walk that far. I just... wew.

However, you could use an electric scooter. They have a 70 usd one that folds into a foot big shape or so, and it can charge both 5v devices and 18. Two 18v bats together can power some shitty electric scooters people make, so if you were to nigger rig it you could ride that forever. But you'd have to pay 500+ to have such a thing, and then it'd have to be all soldered together, and would take like 8 times longer to charge than a house would charge it. 15 miles per hour and would probably crap out every 2ish hours with cheap drill batteries. They are 18v each, you could use two of them.

The point is that ocala might only be 50 miles from you so it's doable if you had some electric shit, though a pig would probably get you on a high way over it because you'd have to be skimming at the side of the road to use one. That's illegal, as is probably hitch hiking. Really, it's psuedo-slave empire the USA is.

But I am basically the demi-god of harebrained schemes, so it's not like someone would use a 70 usd folding camping panel to charge a 36v scooter, even if it can technically work. Who would try it with the pigs afoot? No one that's who, and surely not me as such a scooter burns through a year's worth of my present money. And I'm retarded with electronics a bit so it'd probably just electrocute myself to death when it rained on it. All things considered I'm going to have to steal a car. Or borrow rather.
>>
>>1938369
>70 usd one
I meant a folding solar panel, of which op having one would make sense if he's bringing a 'phone' and such.
>>
>>1938369

This. There is no such thing as living free here anymore. There is no way to "opt-out" of the society that controls this country.
>>
>>1938390
>There is no such thing as living free here anymore.

You are too rigid in your thinking and have given up. We are freer than ever and most of life's necessities are free. Everyone says housing is expensive, food is expensive, medical is expensive, kids are expensive and they are in your mind, yet lots of people come here and have seven kids and do fine. You can impregnate sluts in 7 states by day and smash starbux windows by night, people do that. You can buy a house for $1000 in detroit and go on welfare and live for free you can become trans and get free grant $$$ what your mind can conceive you can achieve

It's November you actual fucking goober, which means winter and cold temps for the next 3-4 months, if you're not dead by the time you hit Wyoming, you're gonna freeze your cock n' taters off in the freezing temps and wind.

Are you the same guy who mentions this in every?

This is the ideal time for this hike. The weather in the South is extremely mild in the winter compared to the rest of the country. Florida is like 72° and sunny. Sticking to the South and Southwest is ideal, but 10% longer.

>>1936829
Please go read this guys post: >>1937851

He comes off as kind of a dick, but that’s just how it is on this Mongolian basket weaving forum. Being an asshole is the default attitude.

You’ve packed things based on memes, “survivalist” crap, and what people bring on regular vacations. If you’re not hunting, fishing, or building a stick fort, you don’t even need a knife. On my hikes I take a Leatherman Micra. It’s a tiny multi tool that opens into mini scissors. The blade is like 1”. It’s most common use is opening bags of food and cutting luekotape.

You were given tons of good advice in other threads, and you’ve completely ignored it, going instead on what you think is appropriate. You admittedly have zero experience doing this. Why wouldn’t you listen to people who have plenty of experience?

That’s why people will want to see you fail; you asked for advice and ignored it. Your default attitude is one of simultaneous ignorance and arrogance, both demonstrated through actions.

This is exactly like the guy who said he was climbing Rainier with zero experience and we never heard from him again. I hope you don’t have to call mommy and daddy to buy you a bus ticket back to Oregon.

>bug repellant is dead weight imo, if they are bad enough that you need it, repellant doesn't do shit.
Not true Anon. It might be because you live in Europe where bug spray with DEET is either outright banned or limited in concentration. It’s a necessity in the South and Alaska.

>>1938747
Anon, what he said is the inverse of that:
>there are people who live in Montana that claim Florida is cold in the winter because Montana is cold in the winter.

It’s why there are people saying it’s a bad idea. Where they live the temps are dipping into the 30’s or 20’s every night, so they couldn’t imagine setting out in a long distance hike I’ll prepared as OP is.
>>

I just checked and its at least 50 degrees colder in Montana than Florida and its not even winter so sleeping outside is not a good idea in Montana in winter

Yes. It’s warm in Florida in winter. It’s cold in Montana in winter.

OP was definitely in a hotel room, posting as much evidence as he could. The pic of his gear falls in line with his claim of going to Walmart and buying everything (looks brand new, is an Ozark Trails pack). There was a WaWa grocery or convenience store in one pic, which are only found around Maryland and Florida. There’s no evidence against his claim, and no reason to believe he’s just making it up.

you will not have a fire every day unless you are not going very far
then you will not be cooking every day unless you are not going very far (a few miles maximum it will take you hours to prepare enough wood with no axe)

If this thread (and OP’s 5 others) don’t have you transfixed then you must be lost. He went off the deep end, flew to a random city as far from his home as he could, and plans to walk back. He had no gear, no experience, and basically no plan.

It’s the most /out/ thing a schizo could do.

>bug repellant
Fasting will also make you less enticing to bugs. Many people who have fasted before have reported this. Something to do with how your body switches to ketosis.

If you're interested in losing weight OP, I would recommend checking out keto diet, then looking into fasting.
>>
>>1939625
I agree. I have a cousin who is schizo and he's done stuff like this a few times when off his meds.
