most dangerous

What was the most dangerous thing you have encountered while hiking/climbing? Was it a lose rock on a steep ledge? Sudden lightning storm? Or maybe some kind of animal?

Running outside in cold or use treadmill?

Hey guys,

I'm just curious as to what everyone's opinion is with running on a treadmill vs running outside in cold. Personally I prefer running outside, however it is starting to get real cold out there. My concern though is that whenever I run on a treadmill it just doesn't feel like I am getting the same effective workout as running outside, not to mention that I feel like a hamster on a wheel. lol ...

Need help in finding a climber's name

Hi guys. didn't really know where to post this. I thought is more appropriate here as I'm not looking for a climbing partner.

This summer I've met a group of Czech climbers while in Switzerland. We found each other on Monch summit and next day I joined them to Gross Fiescherhorn.
As stupid as it seems, I did not take any contact details. I have a few pictures and some videos of them and viceversa. ...

Camping out in woods etc,

Hey guys, just a question regarding camping. My brother and I are planning a 1 night hike and camping trip in Indiana or Michigan area. We both come from Marine Corps infantry backgrounds and have a odd image of camping.
We like to go off the beaten path far away from ppl and set a small impact camp in middle of nowhere. The problem I'm having is, is it legal? Could you guys just get ...

Master's Thesis Master's Thesis

Hello everyone!

So the survey may be lengthy, but ...
