IIT: We post our most recent /out/ing
and ask questions about other's.

I went backpacking in los padres national forest. A group of friends and I hiked 4.5 miles to a swimming hole in the sespe river and camped for three days.

we had some neighbours but in all it was a solid trip. when we made it back out we bought fresh tritip at a market and ate it on a turnout. how does /out/ deal with wilderness withdraw?

sounds like a fantastic time!

>how does /out/ deal with wilderness withdraw?
the only way is to plan your next trip, look at and share your photos, etc. I usually make a movie out of a big /out/ting and when I get home I can kill some time editing it all together. That usually gets me through to the next trip.

My last trip with friends was an overnight in early April (still basically winter here)

I've done a couple solo trips though, the last one was about 3 weeks ago. Just a relaxing campout in the forest, nighttime photos, walkabout under the stars, etc. I had some bear trouble though and didn't get any sleep because of that.

but I'm Overlanding in my Toyota through New Mexico and Colorado, Intermittently backpacking on loops.
Next week I will dissapear for a month due to going deeeep innawoods where I wont be bothering you lot lol.

>how to deal with wilderness withdrawal?
I can't. My life and Career revolve around my obsession with seeing the wonders of the world in person.
>Take something like a rock.
Just something you like.
>Take a leather strip
>wire
Make a necklace out of it. I have a peice of Quartz from Shining Rock.
Reminds me everyday of what I do and where I've been, and every trip its on gives it more meaning when I'm not on one.


TL:DR its hard to overcome, I haven't in all my years traveling

Oh im sorry, I must have skiped that part. I always go for the sticky first before posting something that's already there. I'm just so excited man you have no idea. All my free time goes to researching backpacking and hiking. When I get a break at work I'll jump to instagram and look at other people's trail photos. I pretty much learned the essentials. I just don't know where to start now. What to do as my first official move. Like do I start buying things now? What to buy first and what to buy last? Should I keep reading/researching. So many questions
