can you be fat and /out/? or what is the best way to get healthier not locked in the gym but in the great outdoors?

>can you be fat and /out/?
humans only
Yes you can. Half the numales in Boulder have a potbelly and still go outside enough to swarm the trails.
Those are probably trannies
This is /out/. It's important to know you can't freeze an apple because you might reasonably want to store your own produce.

It's much better to freeze your fruit stewed or chopped, and you'll only be able to use it for cooking because it will be mushy. You can't easily replicate the cold storage process supermarkets use and get the same lifetime.
>I'm very sorry for saying "frozen" instead of "months in cold storage". Please forgive me.
No. You are hereby sentenced to buy and plant at least one apple tree and learn how to store and preserve its fruit.
You need at least 2 apple trees to produce fruit, faggot.

if i remember right REI was some trendy dollar store walmart equivalent american chain store but solely for outdoors stuff
they have low low prices for bad products and this is why everyone who shops there is either poor and have no idea what he is doing or someone larping with bad gear just for clout
did i get that right
t. some anon explained REI to me some 5 years ago and this is basically what i remember
No, it's all high dollar libcuck gear with no fishing or hunting section. Mostly they sell fashion products like patagonia and fjallraven. They have the usual citycuck staple of a bicycle section and they have gay pride outdoors and trans rights gear.
my local store is about 30% clothing and 70% gear. My local one has a decent ski/bike shop inside as well but I dont think they all do. The funny thing is this one is right next to Sportsmen Warehouse...I go to both but most in my town go to one of the other.
I've never actually been to that store, but I'm glad they're pretty good. Most REI's do hire well.
Nah, used to be upscale camping gear for cheap, now it's upscale clothing and gear for expensive. It's also a cooperative and you get money back for becoming a member blah blah I'm not typing out my membership pitch

Your pay raises and (secretly) hours are determined by how good you are at converting non-members to members. Along with helping to get promotions, which is retarded, because managers don't sell memberships. Recently, REI corporate has been trying to get employees to push the credit card, which really only benefits super richfags. Some employees drink the kool-aid, many do not. Membership *is* worth it if you go more than once a year and like the coupons.
To be fair, REI never sold hunting gear, it was invented for a bunch of hippies to get cheaper alpine climbing gear. They expanded on that. Most (If not all) REI's have a really good bike selection, and if it's not in stock, even nicer bikes can be ordered. Even specialty mountain bikes. The bike shops are also excellent, you can get a pretty cheap tune up and the people will usually fix simple issues for free if a manager isn't hovering. Some stores also have a ski shop.

REI used to sell some fly fishing gear, but I guess it didn't sell well. It's a progressive company, and has been long before it went woke, so they would never full-dive into fishing, let alone hunting. They'd make a killing but lose half of their customer base in the process over the horror of dead animals.

Also, Fjallraven is probably one of the better brands we sell. I like how sturdy the clothing is. Outdoor research is weird but also great. Patagonia is for prestige, Arc'teryx is hit or miss. Their super technical stuff is great, their normie stuff is kinda lame.
Some stores are more clothing than others, it all depends on the demographics of the customers.
>Outdoor research is weird but also great.

yeah, I consulted your last image which showed a load of forest
You are generally right. It is really hard to live self sufficiently in Europe, though not impossible especially in the Balkans. And yeah overpopulation is an issue, but guess what? Second world nations are experiencing a mass exodus of people and villages in hard to access areas are dying and nature is taking over again. In a couple of decades it'll become wilder than Muttmerica where the population density will continuously rise. So yeah it is fucked, but in the near future it'll become a true paradise.

With zero experience, I think linen foot wraps sounds like a solid first step. Good wool can be made quite thin and breatheable though.
that's synthetic. 511 make good pants though.
anything linen, that's pretty much your only choice at that point. a bit more durable than cotton and most importantly they are usually cooler.
I'm looking at the fire restrictions for Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest and saw this regulation:
"Campfires are prohibited above 4,000 feet on the west side of the Cascade crest in Alpine Lakes Wilderness on Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest". What exactly defines the Cascade crest in this case?

Congrats! You're inherently more of a real outdoorsman than most other losers here.

Lots of people can run (Americans u can ignore this) but a few people know that when you run, or walk you get tired. And that by the time you realize it you're too tired to go back where you came from.
In an emergency situation spanning weeks, many people would simply die due to exhaustion. Underestimating distances, overestimating capabilities.

I want to literally LARP as Big Boss. As in, I want to do a several day backpacking trip while wearing milsurp fatigues and exclusively rationing on MREs; with everything else being the normal backpacking fare. What is/are best website(s) to get these items?
14 replies omitted. Click here to view.
They still make everything that was in them. Which was kinda the point, make meals from prepackaged readily available stuff. Army biscuits, bouillon sachets, instant coffee packs, sugar packs, cigarettes, tinned beef loaf, a hard candy of some sort and chewing gum (preferably with xylitol).
They'll stop up your guts something fierce, but it'll keep you fed.
Having it all prepackaged is part of the fun! I get what you're trying to say, though.
Besides, the description they used in Peace Walker literally referred to them as MREs.
That's Konami being gay. Kojima knows better.
MRE's didn't exist till the 80s. Technically it's the "Meal, combat, individual ration"after Korea, but everyone still called them C-rations. Or K-rations for the smaller transportable kind.
That's alright though, MRE's are plenty good.
Don't forget extremely overrated story writing
Don't worry, I'll be sure to frame my walk in the park into some epic adventure through the Vietnamese jungle when I do my writeup.

I liked his videos of course.

The meaning of the statement the guy said is completely rational and fine. The way he phrased it came off like a prick. Still, he has a right to sound like a prick if he wants.

Just for common courtesy he could have said all his points in a more polite way, but the guy is not polite, so whatever.
Was it ever fully confirmed he was svc?
I think you meant to Bump this thread.
Yes a long time ago
Why are necrobumping?

Why would you want other people to see you before you see them? That would make me very uncomfortable, like sitting at the very first table in the break room with your back to entrance. I don't own a single piece of clothing or gear that is any color except Earth brown, olive drab green, and stone grey. The whole point of going out in the woods is escaping humanity and becoming invisible and being left the fuck alone.

I got a deer last season, and while I was in there field dressing, some squad fully kitted to the teeth like PUBG characters walk up and introduce themselves with "was that you shooting?"
So it is, even in NZ. I cringe at how they look in photos and videos but tbf the gear does get them through some shit weather in hard places. Goddam bino harnesses though, fuck they're lame. My favorite thing is when you see a LARPer at a trophy ranch in all that gear mate you could literally do that in your pijamas.

What drinks do you take with you when you go /out? What container do you use?

I normally carry 1 litre of water in a plastic bottle and a 8oz flask with single malt whiskey.

7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
That's a lot of water Anon but normal for a full day's hike I suppose. A few years back I went on a hiking exped in Kenya with some friends. One of them drank over 9 litres of water within 4 hours and collapsed. Turns out he flushed his system out too quickly. Poor fucker took 2 days to recover. Was a good exped though.
Aside from water, of course, I'll sometimes bring a small flask of whiskey, usually Irish, or Bourbon. I have a tendency to drink way too much in my normal day-to-day life, usually in an effort to disassociate, but after spending an entire day hiking 20 miles, talking to no one, and being surrounded by beauty, I feel that I don't really need it the same way. Just a nip or two to help warm up my appreciation of my surroundings, rather than a half liter to completely numb my senses.
