So yeah, this thread is about all the outdoors shit you dudes go and do. Camping, biking, hiking, all that good stuff.

I just got back from a weekend camping / white water rafting trip and holy shit it was awesome. First off, camping with friends is just awesome to begin with, but I had never rafted before. That was a whole new kind of awesome for me. We went to the Upper Gauley river in West Virginia.

The guy who organized this massive trip (18 people from all over NC) got this package deal with Class VI (one of the rafting companies there) which was an all day rafting trip on Saturday down the Upper Gauley with breakfast lunch and dinner and 3 nights at the campgrounds. Admittedly Ive only been rafting that one time, but there were other companies on the river and our guides seemed to know what they were doing a whole shit ton more than the other people. The 6 man raft I was on didn't even loose a single person, in fact we hauled a couple people onto ours from a few flips, and saved one dude from drowning.

Oh, also in that package deal thing we got a DVD of our trip with all 5 Class 5 rapids in it and photos of our groups doing one of the best ones. Soon as I get the photos Ill put them up and the DVD might take me a while (the guy who has the DVD is going to make copies for everyone who went, but I would have to go home for the weekend to get it), but Ill see if I can put it on youtube if anyone cares.

I could go into more detail about the actual rafting trip, but I probably wouldn't be able to explain it to anyone who hasn't been on that river, but if you wanna hear bout it Id be glad to retell what I can.

So yeah, what kinda stuff have you guys been up to?

    A little under a month ago, I went with a friend down to Crater Lake and biked 31 miles all the way around the rim, out on the highway. That was quite an adventure, what with the wind and the altitude and the trying not to get run over by enormous motorhomes.

    I want to do a lot of camping this next year, that would be awesome.

    Oregon is indeed outdoorific.

    I went on a kayaking trip last week, and I'm going on another one next week. Pretty much kayaking is 12 times better than rafting but rafting is still amazing.

    the best I was able to hike to was the ruins of a plantation

    but it's not so cool to hike out here because we have those really terrible bugs you always hear about

    Fuck MREs. Mountain House freeze-dried meals is where its at.

    Just add boiling water and you have some decent hot food that actually tastes good. Plus they're a shitload lighter than MREs.

    I was deaf when I was a toddler thank you very much.

    So let me see if I get this right.
    1. Put on shoes
    2. Walk on snow

    That all?
