The people you describe are the primary source of all of my used gear scores on Craigslist. Also, if your wife doesn't like camping and exploring cool shit, then you've fucked up at choosing a mate.

>girlfriend vetoed that idea for some inexplicable reason.
Women are naturally risk-averse and comfort-driven. They need a strong male influence to push them out of their comfort zone on anything. Even if they end up enjoying themselves and finding the activity worthwhile they'll fight against it if they perceive it a threat to their immediate comfort.

>>2699983
Yeah, this woman was far from rational, I'm glad to have some distance from her.

Everyone here does DYI hunts.
Think it's mostly rich city fags that would use those even in burgerstan.
Here we have outfitters doing salmon fishing and bird hunting for outsiders, nobody local uses these.
So no, I do not mean tent cities and cots, I mean hiking with everything you need and making camp with what you carry in.
>>
>>2699969
Unless you set fire to your tent or try to winter camp with a summer bag and shit tent, you won't die.
Just go /out/, you don't have to go deep the first few times, just push your comfort zone bit for bit.

I've driven nearly every dirt road in the northern 2/3rds of Nevada. I recognize some of the surface structures from your pics. I've found old as F explosives still in wooden boxes. I hear they are unstable after 100 years so obviously let them be. Seems a lot of the smaller mines were abandoned by the 20's.

The vertical shafts at silver city just south of the Duck Valley Indian reservation are amazing. Beautiful stone buildings falling down. That Silver city (there were many) was a happening place until it all burnt down. You can find Chinese opium pipes in the ruins. And an amazing cemetery filled with children who died in the 1918 flu epidemic. Thanks for the pics. Your Rip

Not in the North Cascades

This is a vapro airtrim heat exchanger mask. I've found it to be invaluable for extreme cold weather hiking, but I'm not satisfied with the fit or the durability

How would you go about making your own version of this which could be cheaper and more durable with a custom fit?

I was thinking craft foam, plastic snap rivets, and a plastic scouring pad for a heat exchanger. Then again, the airtrim heat exchanger is made of corrugated plastic and maybe paper? (Correct me if I'm wrong) Wound into a cartridge, so maybe the corrugated plastic from one of those election lawn signs and some corrugated cardboard - again I'm not sure if they use paper or some plastic fabric.

Also, I think whatever homemade design will require a nose clip, which could be made from one of those ace bandage metal clips.

Or maybe there's a better alternative that you prefer? Let's make this a general cold weather face covering thread too - I really want to hear what works for you.

the ones used fro retroffiting houses uses a ceramic heat exchanger, what is in the pic looks like it wouldnt have enough mass to work properly
anyway you can jerryrigging one of this to a mask, i am no doctor but i think they are used for something like what you want https://aliexpress.com/item/1005003275984659.html?

My man. Great tip. I think that's the exact material that's in the airtrim filter.

Just got back from Mt Washington. I used the airtrim intermittently. It wasn't that chilly, so i didn't need it often, but it would often help me to avoid layering up, so i feel it does keep me warmer overall and i like it, just still don't like the fragility and the cost.

Ceramic would be a nice sturdy medium

Nigger you can drive to the northside of MT. Elbert trailhead and turn it into a 8 mile round trip with only 4k elevation gain its a joke. Massive at least takes a day

I live in a fairly large metropolitan area, but if I drive for 40 minutes, I get to an area that is my escape.

It is relatively sparsely populated, right on the coast, with awesome trails (official and unofficial) and more trees than any other part of the area.

The best part, not many people know about it, so often I am the only one out there, or at worst I'll see maybe a couple of people per hour. I can literally walk down from the woods and end up on a secluded beach with majestic cliffs above. Sometimes, as i discover new trails, I have to trespass across 'private property' but its so spread out, I've never been caught. I've been going there for years, but there is always a new niche to explore.

I've taken some friends and dates along at times, and people can't believe a spot like that exists so nearby the big, dirty, smelly city.

I try to get out there at least 2 or 3 times a month, and always feel happier and spiritually refreshed on those days. :)

my 'secret' spot is this old abandoned hunting cabin I fixed up. Concrete floor, metal frame made out of old oil pipe, corrugated metal (aluminum) roof and walls, it's surprisingly solidly built.
it's innawoods but close to one of our hay fields and two ponds stocked with catfish. there is a nice hill near by that a built a gun range on the other side of so I dont spook the game around my cabin. I used a ton of leftover stuff my family had to furnish it, plush the stuff that was still left in it. got it rigged up with one of those biolite solar panel kits so I have lighting, but I keep oil lamps in it too as backup. a nice fire pit outside to cook on. I could go on and on about it.
over all it's not much to look at, but it is mine and it is cozy.
between the easy access to water, fish, game, edible plants and how well ive stocked it, ive got everything I need there at my little cabin

The WV tourism website says there are more than 200 waterfalls in the state

New York has thousands. The western half of the state alone has over 1,150 according to the Western New York Waterfall Survey

So yeah, the anon from Oregon would be able to find plenty of them out east.

You simply cannot understand true hatred until you come from a small town in appalachia and had to witness the advent of these things. In 10,000 years people are going to wonder what caused so much of Appalachia to look like the fucking Rockies and where all the soil went.

Presumably there's a staging area where they have to park the trucks and trailers that they used to haul their ATVs in? Slash their tires. You don't even have to worry about being caught doing it, it's not like they're going to sneak up on you with an ATV that can be heard from ten miles away
