Not the semi-regular OP but still consider it my duty

Old thread kind of related thread since Nobody Goes Out Anymore

I took my ex on some kayaking trips this easter long weekend. I live on the river in an alpine part NE-VIC in Australia in a bit of a confluence where we can drop in behind my house and float ~25km downstream, or go 10-15km along different creeks up-river back home. Autumn colours but still very hot during the day

It's getting warmer for most of you now. What are you up to? What have you done or are doing? What are your plans?

big enough to cook a solo meal in you reckon?
>>
>>2068556
It's on the edge. I mostly use it to boil water in. But have cooked meals in to, well rehydrated meals in it. If you're eating something nice and calorie dense then you can get more in for the volume. But you're often close to the brim so boiling over is a bit of a pain. I'd probably go a size up if I were going to cook in it a lot.

Went for a two day kayaking trip over the easter weekend. A bit of snow in the morning on day two but overall a nice first trip for the year.

Our state was getting some warmer weather so I went camping with friends from my college. Was great to get out although several mistakes were made:

Cooked wayyy too much food by accident. Normally rice, beans, a sausage, and some veg would be sufficient but I accidentally cooked for 4 and had to bury food.

Sat in tbe path of the smoke, had a fire that was too large as well.

Didn't bring water bottles so had to disinfect water in pots and drink it a liter at a time. Retard move.

Wore nice clothes out of habit, didnt account for mud, dust, and sand.

Most fun I've had in a bit. My friends all keep killing themselves and one seemed particularly upset. I had a shitty week as well.

I decided from now on if I can spare $20 to $100 I'll buy some fun shit from the thrift store for shits and gigs.

I spent $6 on this stuff and last weekend I bought a 5 gallon glass jar that looks like those plastic culligan ones. I've bleached the shit out of it and bought a 4' stainless steel brake line for a straw. Like $25 all in. I am trying to decide if I want to leave it in a cooler or make shoulder straps and just backpack 5 gallons of red beer until I die.

My buddies and I went to a semi-popular spot in PA to do some backpacking and LARPing. Good times had by all. I made a semi-fictitious story about hunting a monster known as "The Coomer" using the pics we took and posted it to /k/.

It kind of inspired me to go /out/ more and do more of this stuff. I like making up stories and adventures, and I get to go outside for fun.

East side of Zion was way better than the main section. No shuttle service here and no trails on the main map. Plenty of area to park along the road and just head out on non-maintained trails. Much more enjoyable.

I was a Gumby with the weather tho. For my backcountry skiing I usually do a good, safe amount of research on what’s coming and snow conditions. Since I was just booting around below the snow line I just glanced at my weather app and saw no rain, but there was 10-20 mph sustained winds with 50mph gusts starting in the evening and lasting through the next morning where I was. Fortunately there were plenty of big rocks to hide behind, but it made cooking kind of shitty cause dust and gravel were blowing off the rocks into my food. Crunchy Mac n cheese for dinner.

Curious if you have any pics of the knife ridge section? The only time I did it was as a kid and my dad studiously avoided the rush hour by waking me up at 5am to hike it. Super crowded?

Make it out to the Narrows? I remember we went there thinking it’d be nice to hike in the cool creek in the afternoon but fuck did everyone else too. This was also when I was 13-14-ish so around 2008, and I’ve heard Zion is just getting swamped in recent years.

nice tarp pitch!

Probably gonna go on a short walk with some friends today. If I find anything good, I'll post pics. The trail I have in mind goes through an old sandstone quarry, and theres lots of abandoned grindstones, some building foundations, and a small waterfall.

>>2071755
Thanks man. First time using this one, managed to find a nice poncho tarp with like 8ft of length on it so I don't have to curl up like a retarded ball to fit under there with gear
>>
>>2071815
Yeah so many poncho tarps are just too small. MLD's pro poncho is cat cut and is like 9'x4.5' which is actually a manageable size.

Got into /out/ings years and years ago when I was still in school, some older kids took me under their wing and started taking me on hikes and camps with them. Started my love of the outdoors and all the aspects of my life that has ultimately influenced.
The whole group is now spread across the country and most of our respective trips are done solo or with local friends, but this week was one of the rare times where all four of us are free to go on an overnighter together- it was nice :)

I just got a borah gear bug bivy in the mail today. I'm aiming at doing more tarp camping this year and I thought the bivy would be a good solution to the tick problem. I live in new england so I'm right in the heart of tick country. Just did an overnight a few days ago, picrel.
>>
>>2072241
Most of the ticks were from hiking through an old trail overgrown by blueberries and rhododendron. But it is that time of the year I start bringing my bug bivy.
>>
>>2072246
I pair a custom Borah bivy with the tarp pic above. Love it. I just never use it since I prefer cowboy camping.
>>
>>2072249
Been lucky so far. We've still had some cold nights so the ticks haven't been too bad, but I'm getting prepared for the lil buggers. It won't be long now.
>>
>>2072253
That's awesome. I'm really excited to try out this bug bivy. It's my first purchase from borah gear and it looks really nice.

>>
>>2072281
I hear ya. There was a slight chance of rain that night and I just got the tarp so it was my first time out with it. I was just checking it out and getting familiar with it. Playing with a new toy more or less.
>>
>>2072288
Nice. Congrats. Zpacks flat tarp? I love my custom MLD Grace but kinda want to play around with a flat tarp next.
>>
>>2072292
Thanks! Yeah it the zpacks 7x9. I'm happy with it. Although there is a section of stitching along the ridge line that looks like the person sewing it nodded off at the wheel for a minute. Nothing too bad, but I'm a stickler for detail. It won't effect performance, but it is a little disappointing.
>>
>>2072301
That's why I'd never buy anything from zpacks. Their craftsmanship is horrible. MLD for shelters. Zimmerbuilt for packs. It's the Chad tier combo.
>>
>>2072144
That is a big day. Good on you. The pic is great too. Where is that?
>>
>>2072309
I wouldn't say it's horrible, but it's definitely gone down a bit over the years. The tarp is fine and other than that one small imperfection it's more or less perfect. It's just when you're spending that kind of money I want it 100% perfect. It's too much of a pain in the ass to ship it back and get it replaced so I'm just going to live with it. In the future though I may seek out other options when it needs to be replaced.
>>
>>2072309
I was curious what kind of pack that was. Looks good. I'm using the GG Kumo, but I want to swap it out for the Pa'lante V2 whenever I can actually get my hands on one. I have the Pa'lante Joey and it's the nicest pack I've ever owned. I love it.
