Even as a fatty you can probably do much better and look like less of a tent. Uniqlo is one of the only affordable brands I've found that's not tight on the shoulders but also doesn't balloon out at the waist.

I need to lose about 8kg to reduce chafing. I get sores on my legs from it unless I wear compression shorts and if I wear compression shorts too long I get the same sores between my junk and my leg.

The weather is pretty shit now. Rain, snow and freezing cold wind.
Yeah, you can have the trail to yourself, but I read that around picos de Europa it was quite hard to pass due to snow. I wonder if authorities go as far as closing parts of the trail or if you have to risk it but can still pass.

Ok I'm at my wits end. I hate posting gear threads but I'm turning up very little.

I'm looking for a longer cut (to the thigh) properly waterproof (gore, eVent, etc), coat with a hood.

The only ones I can find are the city range by arcteryx.

I love my montane spine gore active pull-on but it's hip length, lack of pockets and smock design severely limit it's practicality in day to day use.

I was going to suggest something like a ridgeline monsoon but that'll be a no go. Would you consider a Barbour jacket?

I wouldn't have thought you'd have been that bothered if it was for formal/city use, I would just get a good gents umbrella. Do you mind me asking to if you'll elaborate on your desired use?

>climbing gear
Chouinard was a blacksmith, nothing wrong with making your own gear if you know your limitations, do the analysis and build in safety margins. It's not like Petzl has a black magic box that makes climbing gear. With a portaledge you are always roped in so if it goes you are going to have a really bad day but you aren't going to die. The question is one of capability and ROI. How much did your big wall trip cost you in terms of time and money? Is it worth that cost to chance the trip's success on a portalege that you built yourself based on your skills? For me it would be worth it but I'm a shit climber, a good welder and have mechanical engineering friends who work with FEA software on a daily basis.

I always just smile and say hello. Usually get a smile and a greeting back or just a headnod. It's really simple, just don't be stupid about it.
i always carry a gun when out so when i see other people i feel stronger (especially if they're naked)
that's probably the honest reason why most civilians carry guns, to make up for their personal insecurities

I do this on my off days in NYC. Personally I find the edges of Manhattan and outer boroughs the most interesting so far. Also not as packed with tourists basically pushing everyone down at a rapid pace so you get to actually enjoy something.
I like eastern cities because they seem so varied in views and terrain. One part is kinda traditional, another is a small town homely feel, and another part is a major metropolitan area. While in the states, the cities kinda all feel samey, it's either skyscrapers or a ton of 2 story houses that look the same with variations in paint. The city that I've been to that has the most variety in the US is actually Boston so far.
Are you Japanese? Or do you live in South Africa? The rest of the world isn't super dangerous unless you don't heed the people who live there's advice. If you don't announce yourself as a tourist with a ton of money on you, you should be fine. Basically don't go around with a camera and a backpack strapped on your neck and being in absolute awe of everything with a map in your hand.
Go fuck yourself. Just don't travel if you don't want to even attempt learning another language. You're the shameful fucks who go around to foreign countries and get flustered when they don't speak english to you fluently as if they should in their country with their own culture. You aren't a special snowflake they need to care about.

I'm going to do a 3 week drive around Norway, mostly up North, Trondheim- Lofoten Islands. I've recently become a member of DNT. (I need to get the universal lodge key on the spot yet.)

I will mostly sleep in the car and unattended DNT Lodges. I'm going to bring through the Swedish/Norwegian border lots of self-prepared food to cut costs. As far as I am aware of, the duty free limit is 10kg which I exceed.

Is the border even manned? How is Norwegian Police?
Also, any suggestions about places to see, trails to walk, cabins to check in, National Parks?
Any general car-sleeping tips? First time doing it.

Norwegian here.

The border is manned, but not all the time. We have patrols of 2 people moving between guard posts, but if you're planning on moving across the border it shouldn't really be an issue.

Norwegian police are generally very understandable towards /out/-people, and they're likely to help you if you need it.

You need to be aware of the terrain you're hiking in, as maps aren't always accurate. Leave a note on your car when you're out hiking as to where you were headed. That way people have a chance to find you if you break a leg and end up in a crevice somewhere.

As for national parks we have several, but I'm not familiar with the Trondheim/Lofoten area. If you plan on moving further East, check out Femunden Nasjonalpark (Femunden National Park). It's one of the best areas in Norway, and great for canoeing if you're into that.

Be sure to clean up after yourself. Don't leave trash behind and treat people you meet with respect. They will return the favor.

Best of luck!

Thanks, I appreciate that. Will do behave :)


I'm from Sweden and have been to Lofoten/Vesterålen twice. Once in february and once in june. I've got to say I did some nice hikes there and the lodges are very well taken care of.

The most difficult part for me was finding the path, because the guidebook said "explicit path", which clearly meant some tiny red dot on some rocks 50 m apart.

I could recommend a lodge called Snytindhytta located in the eastern part of Lofoten. It's about a half day hike from the road and from there are a few day hikes you can take.

When driving across the border, I suppose you will be crossing on the E10. There you might have to show your passport, but don't worry about them searching through your luggage or anything, since the crossing is quite small.

Enjoy your trip!

Saltfjellet/Svartisen national park is apparently one of the best NP's in Norway
There are plenty of NP's on both sides of the border going north, Rago/Padjelanta might be a good choice. But just pick and choose, lots of good nature in Nordland

It's not harmful, you just have to leach it before using it for food.
It was commonly used as a famine food around here and nowadays it's been seeing a reappearance as a sort of indigenous super food since it has lots of zinc and other important minerals.
Would you cry >>>/pol/ if he advised African people not to drink milk because they're lactose intolerant and Europeans aren't?
Only he's completely wrong about knowing anything about native diets and the difference between them and the settlers'. He doesn't even know that the Europeans used birch in the exact same way. Only they went even further by making it into flour. He's just a fucking /pol/tard trying to muck up another thread.
except that euros ate it. they even made a bread out of it. It what Norwegians and Sami ate when time was really bad.

What's in your first aid kit /out/?

Gets a scratch, gets infected, gets sepsis. You ded bro!
Sterile Bandana
Opium or Opiate pharmaceutical

If I can't fix it with those four things, I wouldn't be able to fix it anyway.

Maybe I should add cyanide for the "can't fix it" scenario...
Liquid iodine is the number one useful item in my kit, granted it's not entirely for first aid because I also use it for water purification at those really sketchy sources as well.

Other items I don't see below
>emergency blanket if needed, this will save your life if stuff goes really bad
>A mirror
>Sewing kit, I don't carry a sewing kit so much as several feet of thread wrapped around a small piece of cardboard with a needle pushed into the side, sometimes I will put several feet of fishing line as well and push a fishing hook or two into the same piece of cardboard.

>the role of the first aid kit is to provide you with tools to deal with life threatening injury or medical emergency
this is true but the first aid kit is the perfect place to put things you will rarely need, if someone opens my kit the first thing they are going to see is scissors, gauze, cloth tape, alcohol packets, and other common use items. They will not get confused by two benadryl wrapped in saran wrap and buried at the bottom of the kit. I also keep backup batteries and emergency chlorine tabs in my kit. You should have your fak on you even when your pack isnt.

>I’ll bring lightweight tablets ... they are smaller and taste better than iodine.
Lets say you purify four liters of water a day for a month, you are carrying 60 tabs around with you. Is that really more convenient than 2/3 of an oz of iodine? Plus you have to pack out all the packaging for something that isn't multi purpose. Iodine can be used as a disinfectant, antiseptic, antibiotic or antifungal depending on how it is applied.

First time posting in /out/. I wanted to share my bike ride with you all. I live in a town called Vernonia, and they have a great 26 mile bike trail that goes through Stubb Stewart state park. While i was out, i watched some helicopter logging and stared at asses in bike shorts, it was a good day. I rode to the Buxton trestle, stopped and smoked a bowl and rode back. Pic related, its the Buxton trestle

1. I like all wood structures, so I like the pic.
2. Crazy to me that marvels of tech like helicopters are used to lift logs at a time. Man, is wood really becoming that expensive? This planet is being messed up.
3. Say no to drugs.
