Has anyone here been to hemmed-in hollow in Arkansas? I'm planning on having a day hike out there, and I want to know the difficulty. The elevation changes about 1000 feet per a mile, which will be tough going back uphill, but I have hiked in the Rockies before, and it's only ~2 miles uphill and ~2 miles downhill. If I have sufficient water and food, should this be fine?

What is the best type of..........firewood? Every year around this time I go on a camping trip with so friends. It's car camping btw. Last year we ended up with some shit wood. There's a place by me that sells oak, maple, ash and pine. Face cords range from $45-60 depending on what type. Which type would be best to bring along? Also I have some chunks of cedar I will be bringing.

Opinion: The use of rifles for hunting is fundamentally unsportsmanlike.

Any Vermonters out there looking to get some trips or /out/ings going in the 802?

North Dakota

Gear me up for surviving car camping in the North Dakota winter, a horrible idea that will have me suffering negative double-digit degree Fahrenheit weather with sever windchill for months on end. I'm going out there looking for a job since I don't mind the cold and I'm tired of being a poorfag, but while I'm no stranger to winter camping in Pennsylvania, I've never dealt with that kind of cold for that long a time.

Hey guys. I'm looking for a compact stackable mess kit, and this seems to be the only one I can find. It's a "Serbian military mess kit" from Amazon. Pretty cheap at $12. Anyone have any experience with it? Also, anyone have other suggestions for something similar? Pic related.

Hey /out/ is this backpack any good ? If not what would you recommend for outdoors and daily use ?

Ski specs in table format - Updating for 2015 [gearchive.com]

0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So I have been working on updating the skis category for 2015(http://www.gearchive.com/gear/snow-sports/skiing/skis). Some of the companies hadn't updated their sites yet so I have to go back and finish. The table-format gives you a pretty easy way to filter, sort, and compare skis. You can quickly access the manufacturer's website via the Mfr Link button and quickly compare prices from a bunch of retailers via the "Shop" link at left (disclosure: affiliate links). The site is far from perfect/complete, but I have been putting in a bunch of time so figured I'd share. Initial page load performance has been an issue because there is so much data. But once the page is loaded, all the filtering/sorting is done in the browser/client side. I decided to keep 2014 skis (only different model names) active (at the cost of performance) for comparison and shopping. You can filter them out via the Production Years column. I mainly focused on freeride, backcountry, and freestyle skis (for lack of better terms) but other models and brands can be added. I would've liked to add surface area, flex, rocker height, edge specs, etc. but the data just wasn't standardized or complete enough. The weights are from the mfr, which is lame, but I'll start measuring and updating as I can. I know I've made mistakes entering in specs, categorizing, etc. Let me tell you, that is some monotonous shit. So if you feel so inclined let me know of mistakes you see or changes you think should be made. Comments can be left on the product detail pages themselves. Thanks for checkin. td;dr - Ski specs in table-format - http://www.gearchive.com/gear/snow-sports/skiing/skis

Has anyone on /out/ had any experience with gliding? I'm thinking about it since it is so cheap compared to powered.

North Georgia mountains

0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
It's my 20th birthday, and I decided to take a while off to go camping in north Georgia. I heard about Fort Mountain online and got really interested in it. It's a mysterious stone fort or some sort of ruins on top of a mountain, which is very strange for the area because the Cherokee never built in stone. Then going over to Brasstown Bald, where the story is similar to Mount Ararat for Christians, when the world was flooded, but the top of this mountain was left for a single family to farm. Any more interesting places I should stop off at? I'd love to learn more about the history of the people here before us. >will post pics when I get back

Missing /out/ in the city

Hey /out/, I've lived in NYC most of my life, but after a short stint in a place where I could hike and camp I'm really missing the outdoors. I can't drive well, but there don't seem to be many places near NYC to go hiking or camping close to any train stations. Any NYC residents got suggestions?

Not sure if this is the right board for it (maybe /sp/?). I've been bouldering indoors for a couple months, bumming off of my friend's old pair that are maybe half a size too small, and figured I should get my own. Any recommendations? I'll be doing indoor climbing all winter until the spring/summer when it gets less wet, canada eh? Rock Climbing general too I suppose

Hi sc/out/s, I don't frequent here often, but I have a favor to ask of you all. Me and a group of friends are to design an app that would somehow benefit our community and I have an idea that coincides with your board's focus. The app is one that is essentially a database of flora and fauna of an area with descriptions for said organisms, there could also be a reverse image search deal. My question is, would you use it? A quick search of the app store and I've found nothing all too similar. Also, would there be any other features any of you would like to see?
