Two minors were reportedly hiking off-trail in Green Canyon Monday and used a large knife to cut through the brush. At one point, they lost the knife. While trying to find it, the minors slid down a hill on their backsides.

The Cache County Sheriff's Office reports one of the minors slid onto the knife, causing significant injuries.

Desert /out/

No.1979864 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Since everything here seems to be about the woods or other similar environments, I thought I would start a thread on desert /out/ings. Just got back from a solo backpacking trip in the Superstitions in Arizona. Anyone got protips or advice that I should be aware of, or any other great places to backpack in AZ? Or just share desert pictures.

Aside from walking, what is the most based method for exploring the outdoors?

For me, it's the motorcycle.

This thread is for all things related to personal hygiene while /out/.
What is necessary in your dopp kit?
What isn't?

Do you have lower standards of hygiene while /out/?
Do you enjoy bathing in ice-cold streams, or do sponge baths with heated water?
Babby wipe babby or handkerchief Chad?
