It's cathartic and for me, getting away from society for a few days helps me mentally. Plus I like the challenge - it's just me on my own. No one else is responsible for me, and I have no one to count on. It's a good feeling.

This isn't camping so much as backpacking. I have my base weight for my gear at under 10 lbs (even less with no tent!), and my total pack weight should be less than 20 lbs for this trip.

When shit hits the fan i will lead you all into the wilderness. We can eat berries and catch fish and write our posts with a rabbit femur on pieces of tree bark.

Just make sure you have a sharp knife for when a boulder pins your arm

I mean this from the bottom of my heart, it has been nice knowing you.

I have an awesome GPS / Emergency Signal. I can download a map of any area in the world (that is mapped by garmin). Even maps the ocean

That sounds fucking awful. You should go to a NASCAR tailgate.


Have fun Ken. Too bad ATG isn't around to give you camping tips.

I saw ATG at Joshua Tree. Well I saw him pull up. Drove an obnoxiously big truck with his company name splashed all over it. Kind of hard to miss

Were you expecting him or was it just a twist of fate? If it was anyone but ATG would you have said hi?

lol.

Hiking is my favorite type of walking. Over the winter I was hiking nearly daily, living adjacent to Massachusetts’ largest state forest. Amazing endurance training. I was always hunting for chaga mushrooms and animal remains to make it more interesting.

Man, so I've been waiting for a very well respected gym equipment company in Canada to restock so I can dump $2K into a home gym with all the bits I want, but I just got news they're restocking in 2 batches. Problem is 1/2 the shit I need is in the first batch, and the other half the second, and that puts me just below the spend limit for flat-rate shipping. Major issue because this shit is 1.) heavy 2.) large 3.) going the distance. I asked if they'd just hold the first order and combine it with the second order when it comes in, but they said nah because they can't be 100% sure when batch 2 will arrive.

I just wanted to get buff and collect some winks on the street. Why is this so hard. Why am I so powerless. Why do I persist.

I'm trying to cut to get down about 10-15 lbs of excess weight. Got another free meal at work today, Penn station.

Good news, 5 remaining active members, I pre-ordered my gym the day I got the pre-order email. It took 3 hours to place the order on their website because it kept crashing. There were many moments of weakness in which I thought I'd give in to being weak forever. Not so. Now I wait until Aug 31 for it to get shipped out, and with any luck I'll be stealing your girl by Sept. Yeeaahhhhh buddyyy

The centerpiece is a short power cage that was super difficult to find at a good price/quality ratio. My basement ceilings are about 6.5 feet, so I bought a 6 foot full power cage. Olympic barbell. 240lbs of bumper plates. Olympic loadable dumbbells (need to go out and buy a wack of cheap 10lb iron weights for these). EZ Bar. Landmine for t-bar rows. Pulley system for the power cage so I can do lat pulldowns and triceps work.

Think that's about it. I can already tell it's going to be one of those things I dump my fun money into. What I really want is a compact rowing machine for indoor cardio work...

I need to do something before I turn into an irrecoverable slug.

Probably I should get a mountain bike again, why do they have so few gears these days?

Maybe and a kayak, I've always wanted a racing kayak - rowing would be good but I have no interest in going backwards.
Stretch objective is to build a flyak.

you can get in basic shape with home calisthenics and walking/hiking/jogging. if you’re not motivated to haul your own weight around with some push-ups, pull-ups and walks around the block, don’t kid yourself that a $4,000 MTB is going to solve all your problems. it’ll sit on a wallrack somewhere until you agree to lose 60% of its value on ebay at the next clear-out.

look into a couch-to-5k programme or something.

I was going to get a $900 Rockhopper with 18 gears, I've done plenty of mtb-ing in the past.
