GLP camping/hiking/canoe-kayaking/survival thread!
I do a lot of hiking and camping, and with all of the survivalists here I am sure others do as well. This thread is here to share stories, give advice and just talk.

I like to hike a lot on the AT, and hope to be able to do the entire thing in a few years. This weekend however I am going kayaking with some friends for a couple of days. I enjoy hiking more, but it will be a great time.

Anyone else doing any camping soon?

Another type of camping I also love, RVing and Jeeping. Not the same as getting miles away from roads and people, but still a blast!

Me and my buddies love to go out into the woods, set up camp, drink beer, tell stories and laugh at the world.
During the day we go out hunting and fishing and then eat what we killed and/or caught.
Then on about day three we blow each other.

So where are everyone's favorite places to hike/camp? I prefer the Adirondacks or the AT myself, but often go anywhere with a nice vista or trails.

Do you have any easy recipes you like for fish? I am going to do a bunch of fishing this weekend and will eat them as well, but am not going to take butter or anything with me. I have an herb garden and plan on taking some rosemarry, thyme, and maybe oregano and some aluminum foil and just putting the herbs in the fish and cooking it in aluminum foil near the fire. Any tips?

Hi,
I was wondering if any body had some ideas for making a target for recurve bows. I'm in Australia so its hard to get guns unless your a farmer. The gov is even close to making bows illegal. Anyway, I made on recently with carpet which was about 14 feet by 14 feet and folded it up so its four pieces of carpet thick. It works pretty well. Arrows go in about half way and are easy to pull out. The other day i missed the target (dog distracted me) and the arrow went straight through a metal fence. I thought the arrow would be broken but it was perfectly fine except that the fletchings got cut up as the arrow cut further through the fence.

You mentioned a farm, could you buy some small, tightly wrapped hay bales? I used to hang targets on a couple of stacked hay bales with my old compound when I was younger.

The best trip I ever took was rafting and camping through the wild and scenic section of the Rogue River. 3 days and 2 nights of fun. Even got to hike up and see Zane Grey's cabin. I was amazed how many artifacts are still in place.

Re: GLP camping/hiking/canoe-kayaking/survival thread!
We do a 5 day canoe trip through 8 lakes every year. Nice and remote. Some hard work through the portage but well worth it. I think in the last 17 years we have come across 2 groups.

The fishing is outstanding and tons of fresh berries on all 8 lakes (lowers the amount of gear needed when you feast on the fresh bounty). Bears can be a little crazy sometimes but we are in the wild.

Would take anyone who loves absolute pure nature through the route. Pristine wilderness at its best.

Re: GLP camping/hiking/canoe-kayaking/survival thread!
Last week I spent a few days hiking this path. It was awesome! An old roommate of mine and I were planning on going, and I talked a couple of buddies into it last minute. It was a blast! Like 8 beautiful vistas, several water falls. Rock Run is one of the most gorgeous creeks in the country.

I will post some pics later, but here is a link.

It is a 29 mile hike(some sources say 27, others 29, I hues it depends on how many vistas you go see), moderate difficulty. I am very surprised, but we did not even see one rattle snake. I would definitely recommend it to any hikers in nearby states looking for an awesome weekend hike. We did it in 3 days, 2 nights, but it would not be difficult to do in 2 days. If you are in great shape, even 1 is possible. Only a few difficult climbs, lol, the hardest the first day. Like a mile of very steep incline. Anyways, I have to go meet some people for tennis, but I will post some pics later, it was awesome


[link to www.pahikes.com]
the pic on that page is the confluence of the yellow dog and rock run.. It was so beautiful! There are several nice camping spots there!

That was awesome! I love videos like that! I was thinking about trying to do one on the hike I went on, but was too worried about my phone. I think I am going to try it again this fall and do it in one day, I may try it then.

Those rapids looked awesome! I did some class 2 and 3 rapids with my family as a kid down int the Smokey Mountains in 96'. It was actually where they did some of the Olympic trials that year. I also did class 4 and 5 on the New River in WV as a teen, that was insane!
