I don't climb, but I'm fascinated by stories of great mountaineering exploits in the Himalayas, the Andes, the Alps, and so on.
Anyone here a mountaineer or wants to share cool stories you've read?
The mountain that most fascinates me is probably K2. It seems that to climb it would be like climbing a steep crag into another world.

I'll be in Europe during summer next year, thinking of climbing Mont Blanc solo, or with people I'll meet when over there. It'll be my first mountain climb, but it doesn't seem that difficult - just have a reasonable amount of fitness and common sense.
>It'll be my first mountain climb
>it doesn't seem that difficult
>just common sense
you're likely going to die
from what I've read, it's mostly hiking, no vertical work and a clearly defined and well walked trail. All the gear you need is required by law anyway, the accidents happen from people walking far off the trail and falling down the crevices with most of the fatalities occurring during winter.

iirc, out of the Seven Summits, it's the second easiest and only because Mt. Kosciusko in Australia has a sealed road to the summit.
You clearly haven't got a single clue what you're dealing with here.
>no vertical work
Is this bait?
>the accidents happen from people walking far off the trail and falling down the crevices
No, people - even experienced climbers - die from avalanches, rockfall, cold, hypothermia and altitude sickness
> most of the fatalities occurring during winter
Wrong again, most fatalities occur during summer when inexperienced tourists like yourself clog up the trails
> out of the Seven Summits, it's the second easiest
Why on God's green earth are you even talking about the Seven Summits when you've never climbed a mountain in your life. Why don't you throttle back a little bit and start climbing some lesser peaks before doing the real thing.
Honestly, if you're serious you're probably going to die anon.

Australia is absolutely full of pieces of remote paradise.
Those remote paradises are usually 3-4 hours away by car to the landmarks' car park and an additional 2 hour hike to walk to the actual landmark.

The key word is "remote"

oh, and if it's in the north, it's probably infested with crocodiles.
If you've ever been to a place bombarded with tourists you will appreciate it. Plitvice Lakes? All those nice pictures are taken in a conga line on a narrow wooden path with a hundred people.

Having a whole beach or valley to yourself, not hard in Australia.

You almost sound like you want a hundred buses trundling by while you are /out/. Of course there's a million more you won't find on google.

>What would everyone do to prepare for/survive the LA riots?
By not living there, if I did I would stay in until shit calmed down or leaving to family's home as soon as possible. I would not stop or be caught in the streets no matter what, that's for sure.
guns and ammo would be the biggest thing. then good transportation to drive away. then food/water.
Yea but what if the riots started in your city?
Trying to leave would actually put you in the same situation as the driver in that truck.
yeah but with a 1000 rounds and a gun. either way you either bunker our run.

Why exactly do I need a cast iron pan for hiking. I cook using my lightweight stove and pots and I don't exactly feel like carrying an extra 5 pounds of heavy iron around if I don't have to.

Genuine question
>>1156513 here. It’s not that much. I could probably get a bigger one but I was cheap and got the smallest. I like frying eggs or cooking sausage and cornbread on it. I’m not a diehard like most of the guys here but as I said in >>1158360 I carry a pretty light base weight so I can have room for more frivolous stuff like fishing supplies and stuff. It’s not as bad weight wise as you’d think and it adds to the comfy factor. The handle may be a pain because I definitely prefer my boiling pot collapsing handle

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Prince Albert, Carter Hall or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $20.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

Here is an /out/ with pipe post hopefully. This pipe was found at an archaeological dig. It is a mid 19th century ceramic pipe. It survived unbroken buried in a house cellar in a farm field for probably 75-100 years. It is one of two found whole (the stems are gone though).

I know you Europeans are going to laugh but it's fairly old for the Midwest.
If you don't have interest in pipe smoking go away. This place used to be comfy not it's just a bunch of fags bitching about smoke and cancer.
What are some ways to flavor my homegrown tobacco so that it smells more aromatic?

Already tried vanilla. Heard that single malt whiskey is good.
Whiskey or rum would be a good start. I have read you should spritz it over the tobacco with a sprayer bottle in controlled amounts, adding as needed so you don't overpower it.

What did you grow and how did you cure it? I plan to try this one day.
smoke it
you know you want to. that was prolly billy the kid's

Assuming you really like the /out/ life, why aren't you saving every penny to buy a decent piece of land rather than spending your shekels in stupid and useless gear?

Previous thread: >>1154036
>Kris Kremers and Lisanne Froon were Dutch students who disappeared on April 1, 2014, while hiking in Panama. After an extensive search, portions of their bodies were found a few months later although how they died could not be determined. The circumstances and aftermath of their disappearance have resulted in much speculation about the cause of death.

After reading >>1153799 → post on another thread I got curious and started searching for more info about the story since that at the time seems like it was something big and I had never heard of it before or seen it discussed here so I think it's worth to discuss it now. We can also have some talk about jungle survival if someone is interested or has significant knowledge.

Anyway, what do you think that happened to them?

>Plus it was a tidy little package of all of their combined possessions.
yeah, I'd have to guess at the very least someone found them shortly after they died and robbed the bodies. Somebody about had to plant the backpack for it to have showed up in the open and also not completely soaked to the point of destroying the electronics at least.

I'm going to be kayak camping through the 10000 islands in SWFL and I was hoping you guys had any advice or recommendations on supplies.

PS the GPS can also receive text messages which saved us once as family warned us about an incoming tornado. everything looked clear from our perspective till about 20min before the storm, the warning gave us time to get to shore and safely set camp in a valley
How many days are you going out there for? Biggest issue I can see is water. The general rule for kayaking is to drink 1 gallon of water per person per day, but since you're in the 10000 islands you probably won't have access to fresh water for drinking (unless you find some kind of natural freshwater source, which isn't too likely) so you'll need to consider how you're going pack it all with you. Basically you'll need enough for you to drink every day, plus however much you'll need for cooking (and then a little extra). I recommend using a dromedary/bladder style container for water- they're flexible & they pack down small.

I'm a fan of tarp camping, & I'd highly consider it if you think you're going to have nice calm weather, but if there's any doubt about how windy or stormy it might get, I'd skip it and just go for a regular tent.

I'd imagine that it would be worth it to bring a rod/net if you know can identify what you're catching and know how to cook it right- you could cut down on the amount of food you're bringing and have an easier time packing. If not, make sure you have leakproof bags- you can usually recover some food from freshwater leaks, but saltwater is going to ruin it for you.

Note on dry bags- I usually fill them up with with air and submerge them for a minute or two to see if there's any bubbles leaking. Even if you don't see any, check it afterwards and see if there's any water inside- the stitching that holds the rubber seal together could be loose and letting water in.

I personally have never needed a machete or any kind of heavy chopper on trips that I go on- all the ones that I've used belong to my friends, and they seem to dull pretty easily. On the flip side of that, I've never been anywhere that I've NEEDED to harvest my own dead wood with a machete- I can usually find everything I need for a campfire on the ground near me. Not sure what the vegetation is like in the 100000 islands.

Liquid fuel stoves are the way to go for water based treks.

Also check the regulations on waste disposal- you might have to bring it with you. For food & packaging waste, general rule of thumb is cans are better than bottles and boxes are better than cans (boxes can be burned, cans can be crushed, you can't do much of anything with bottles). If human waste needs to be packed out, invest in wag bags.

My biggest piece of advice is don't go overboard. Bring what you need to be comfortable and know how to use what you have in a pinch. I know so many people who bring unnecessary gear- I went backpacking for 5 days in New England with a guy who literally brought electrical tape, duct tape, needle nose pliers, screwdrivers, an adjustable wrench, wire, paracord, his own tarp, a giant maglite, a machete, camouflage netting, and a full military-style chest rig loaded with a bunch more nonsense in addition to what he had in his pack. We made him drop everything he didn't need. If you have a new piece of equipment go ahead and bring that if there will be a time and place to use it, but if you're not sure about it I wouldn't bother bringing it.
>duct tape, needle nose pliers, paracord
are all handy to have, and I would recommend anyone going on a boat trip to take, don't under estimate duct tapes ability to quickly patch a hole in a dry bag or even your kayak / canoe

Look up infrasound. Big cat's are known to produce it when they roar.

This story was scary for me at first but it ended up being hilarious to everyone else.

Grew up in Florida but moved to NC (Boone) when I was in 8th grade. My cousin from NY came to visit. We were both very much into the /out/ and this house in the mountains gave us both the opportunity to do so.

The first night of camping we were in a tend on the property of about 7 acres with nothing but the blue ridge behind our house. cousin and I bring some snacks and fall asleep in tent.

I wake up at probably around 3 am and hear a weird crunching noise and cat/animal like noise i look over and see a racoon sitting on my cousins chest eating something which I assumed was his face. I yell cousin wakes up and racoon bolts out the fucking tent.

turns out my cousin fell asleep with a bag of chips on his chest and the racoon climbed into the tent sat on his chest and started to eat away. giving the illusion from my point of view of the racoon feasting on his face.
