New hiking adventure (pics) ...
I know some of you don't care about this shit but I love it...
Me, Benji, Dakota and Benji's cousin Denisse went..
We were unaware snow was still on the ground.
We first went to big falls in forest falls.
The falls fall in 4 tiers and the overall height is like 600-800 feet.
Benji Decided to climb up this, it was steep, he got scraped and bled a few times, idiot, haha.
Nature, fucking awesome. It was hot, but there was still snow.
We had to cross the snow a few times, we ran out of water but no whiskey
These paw prints are bigger than they look.
Hiking on up, we got so tired, we only made it up halfway, we are going again next week to visit the top and get a better view and see horned sheep, and trout (we might bring fishing poles).
some hoof footpronts (not sure I spelled that right)
The view halfway up.
We went back to benji's for a BBQ. good day. Apparently there was this person trying to climb up around the waterfall and a rock fell on her and she fell and broke her ribs and some other shit.
All 3 of us are going next week, my friend Ron might go as well. If anyone wants to join on a hike, nature, drinking, etc. Hit me up. There's always room.
Fuck yeah! That shit is rad, there is tons of this type of stuff in Oregon. Can't wait for the summer, gonna do so much exploring!
That looks awesome.
Makes me want to hike.. the snow here will melt... soon
Oregon is VERY beautiful!

Sweet stuff! Next time: 1.bring fishing rods
2. Catch trout and post in THE OFFICIAL FISHING THREAD
That's sick shadows, did you hike or camp out there?
By the look of your gear I assume day hike?
How long was that hike? I sure hope you brought a little whiskey to drink while you were up there
Hiking is the best shit ever. I love the pics!
That is sick!
Do you guys pack minimalists?
Cause I have an external frame pack, and I pack the shit out of it, haha.
That looks sick! I am going on a 2 day trip later this month hopefully.
nah i dont get too serious with it. no frame pack or anything. sleeping bag, some clothes, alcohol, knife, matches/lighter and thats about it haha. longest trip ive done was 8 days but they were 8 real dirty days on a river.
this gets me by with what i do.
word! you get way more serious than i do haha. you do it proper. i pretty much just take a bag, throw some shit in. make sure i got liquor and weed, maybe some kind of substance, and pick something high/far to walk to. i just borrow shit if i need it. no tent or anything. i got two sleepers though a +20 and a -30. i got a nice pair of hiking boots and a back pack oh and a nalgene
I just threw away a shovel like the one you got Ozzie, wtf am I supposed to do with it? The norwegian military sent me a fucking packinglist for this training I`m going to tomorrow, and it`s packed with fucking shit I`ll never use. The list is so full of shit I have to leave a lot of the shit I normally use when I`m in the woods. I`m really upset, cos I`ve spent all day packing shit like shovels, gasmasks, several kilos of oldschool tent shit we don`t even use, crazy clothing for extreme winter warfare etc. And now there`s no room for the stuff that comes in handy...
And they`ve also decided how I`m going to set up my vest, and they`ve found out that vital stuff like ear and eye protection goes in my bag and not on my body...fuck this. Normally I`m packing whatever I need...
sorry for super off-topic, needed to get it off my chest
The shovel is to dig for a campfire and place rocks around, also to throw dirt on it when you are done. Also to dig up a hole when you shit and cover it up. I know you could use a smaller shovel for such occasions (I sometimes wont take it and will use a smaller gardening shovel). Not sure if you get a ticket if you don't have one but in the national park website it says you need one.
Yeah, the picture you see is full of shit I own, I wont take EVERYTHING you see there. When I go backpacking I'll take pics of make a video of how I stuff my pack. I might also do it this weekend when I go on a day hike.
Ah so that's what it's for... I guess since we're heavily armed we can shit wherever we want without covering it up. Not until shit hits the fan will we start covering shit up (see what I did there?)

And I'll watch a video for sure, pretty relevant to my interests (I kinda suck at packing).
