Who does this, and why? Is there a thrill of the near-death experience? Is it enjoyable to control yourself when you are underwater and stuck in a small hole and your body screams for you to panic but you don't?

Is it worth the risk?

The US National Parks system owns some of the most valuable real estate in the entire WORLD. The government is currently PAYING MONEY to manage and maintain these lands, when they should be creating massive profits via property taxes and other forms of development. It is estimated that a land auction of six national parks alone (Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier, Grand Teton, and Crater Lake) could raise TRILLIONS of dollars - money which goes DIRECTLY into the federal budget. Why hasn't this been done yet, /out/?

Pic related, why hasn't this been developed yet?

Take money from military funding and spread it to other government agencies that actually help people.

Sooo, I plan a short trip next month - 3/4 days, walking ~9 h per day, no camping, sleeping in huts.

Terrain is small mountains and hills, with grass and stones. Windy weather and rain quite possible (and so mud on trails as well).

Was seriously thinking purchasing hiking sandals but never had any of these before, always using running or hiking shoes... not sure what to expect.

Any opinions?

I absolutely hate wearing my Havianas on any significant slope.

I'm going to be gradating from college soon and I want to dump my shithole East coast city and move out west to find a job. Which cities are surrounded by the most nature to explore? I've never been camping or hiking, but I've always loved nature and it's important to me to be somewhere where I can leave town and be immersed in nature easily. From what I've researched, Boise, SLC and Reno look like great choices. Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Car flares are useful

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:

Over a very long time. It's more harmful than not smoking at all, but smoking is not the death sentence antismoking propagandists would have you believe.

Gonna be moving to Austin in a few days. Thanks for those tips, those look like pretty cool places. I was visiting my brother a couple of weeks ago and we went to Barton Creek. Pretty nice place for how close to Austin it was.

Mostly exited about how relatively close Big Bend National Park is. Would love to do a week long backpacking trip there
>>
>>1320423
I think bbnp is about eight hours away. Pedernales has a lot of trails and a few random camp sites. If you want a quick after work trail there's Turkey Creek Trail. That one is only like a 2 or 3 mile loop but it's kind of nice. There's a wildlife refuge north west about a half hour that has a few trails. Ill think about some more of the ones that are decent.

hi /out/

I'd like to start camping on my own, but I'm a huge fucking pussy. I'm 26 years old and still afraid of the dark, especially while being outside. How do I overcome being this big of a puss?

Unless they do a straight up arctic circle season that wouldn’t matter. There are enough /out/ people that apply that would manage if not thrive. They cast dramatic crybabies on purpose because it makes the danger seem more real. Thats why so many guys have pregnant wives/small children. Theyd never cast some real mountainman or hillbilly and let him try for a half million. Im not saying its not dangerous but they definitely want that aspect played up and exaggerated for ratings.
