What is the effect of food taste better when you eat it outdoors? Does it have a name?
Why does eating outdoors while camping / backpacking makes it taste so much better.

Image somewhat related; eating outdoors, with the added benefit of triggering non-normies.

>>
>>1300003
I mean it's pretty easy to keep dirt off you if you're camping, you don't really need to stick your hands in the dirt for anything besides maybe pegging out your tents, and if you're somewhere very grassy or mossy it's almost hard to get dirty.

I just got to denver from the Midwest and im feeling all goofy. How long did it take you other/out/ists for your altitude sickness to settle down the first time?

I’ve hiked for 6-8 hours at a time at 8,000 feet ascending to 10,000 feet and I get symptoms pretty much every time. I bought an oximeter to figure out whether or not I was just being a pussy and I hover around 80%-85% after exertion. Shit sucks. I’m 98% at normal altitude.
>>
>>1300047
Go see a doctor for those saturation values. I guess is the crappy equipment, but 98% rested is not normal for a healthy young male.
80% to 85% with less than 4000m high is weird too.
>>
On average, it takes 2 weeks for your body to effectively compensate by making more hemoglobin, ie, it makes more red blood cells.
>>
>>1297427
>>1297611
Sounds like you're confusing altitude sickness with something else, like taking poor care of yourself. Take it easy, eat healthy, stay hydrated and unless something else is wrong with you, you'll be fine in a week or so.
Altitude accommodation doesn't happen overnight, your body has to make more rbcs, which takes time. This is why people who hike everest have to stay at base camps at progressively higher altitudes to adapt. Even though they bring supplemental oxygen.

>>1297427
I live around 2000 ft and I camp and hike at 10000 ft in the Utah mountains. I usually feel short of breath and tired while setting up my camp the first day, but by the morning of the next day I feel completely normal. I can hike just as far and as quick as I do around home.

Is there a fabric that lets water wick through but not air? There are a lot of waterproof breathable fabrics, but I need the opposite - a water wicking air tight fabric.

dehydrate it in your oven:
>spread sauce real thin on foil
>bake at 170° for 3-4 hours
>keep the oven door propped open with a wooden spoon to allow airflow
>peel off foil and shred
>blend into powder in blender so it reconstitutes more easily
i've done it, it works great. way lighter, smaller, and no spoilage. there are videos on youtube if you want more detail.

The interesting thing about Mongolia is that the environment appears to be easier to live in right now, but once Winter comes things will get exponentially more difficult. I doubt any of them will last long once the cold weather arrives.

>what are your 10 items?
I'd need some sort of book on indigenous vegetation/wildlife so that I'd know what to eat and what to leave alone. Yes, it's possible to make an educated guess based on color/shape/size/texture but there are some things in nature designed specifically to deceive so they they'll be ingested.
Failing that, is there some sort of safety lecture beforehand?
>>
>>1299494
Holy shit the notching on that thing is horrendous. I get that you don't have a set of carpenter's tool out there but come on, that thing's barely going to protect against predators or the elements. You could fit your whole hand inside the wall easily.
>>
>>1300070
Why can't you live on fish? They contain protein and fat and are rich in nutrients. In fact, the eskimo and inuit tribes of America, who's skin tone doesn't allow them to synthesise vitamin D from sunlight as effectively as North Western European Caucasoids are nevertheless able to remain healthy above the Polar Circle in Winter thanks to their fish-based diet. There are numerous wild plants that can be eaten to provide modest amounts of carbohydrates.

If you really wanna get out of the country drive to Canada right next door. But if you really are set on Finland for whatever reason, go to Lapland.

I cycled and camped trough Finland for about a month. Lapland was the most beautiful part by far, lots and lots of reindeer and lots of beautiful desolate places. If you go more south, take some really good mosquito repellent with you, DEET or something stronger cause the amount of mosquitoes are fucking insane in the woods.

Food, water, seeds, lots of farming and logging tools, have a bit of land for crops and animals, ammo, guns, silver coins, bleach to clean water, household items, alcohol, and etc.
You can rotate the food so that your supply is always fresh.

Ok, we all know that it's illegal except in very specific areas. Do you flout the law and go wild camping regardless of the risk?

I am tempted to give it a try and am looking for some tips. I live close to Brecon.

Have any of you had any problems from park rangers or land owners when wild camping?

Went on a hike like what you're saying on father's day, made a thread on it. No trail, just two bottles of water per person, and a small bag of trail mix. Not really /fa/ tho.

Is it made of the lightest material possible that will disintegrate if you fart too hard?
No? That's a good sign it doesn't need a ground sheet.
But you can use one if you don't want the thing to get dirty or whatever.

So, it doesn't NEED one, but you can use it.
