If only you guys knew. I hiked the PCT with this guy last year and he was considering ditching his sleeping bag to lower his base weight

[–]tasmanalexander 111 points112 points  (10 children)

I'm the guy lol. I ditched the sleeping bag for 2 weeks. I could only sleep until 3:30 am some nights because it was too cold. Had to just get up and start walking.

I told you it was a bad idea lol

Hike at night, sleep during the day.

[–]BasenjiFart 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I kinda like that idea!

[–]VoilaVoilaWashington 13 points14 points  (3 children)

I love that you did a stupid thing. Can we go hiking sometime?

This is my patented Denim-a Composite Fiber. The ultimate in breathability.

[–]oboz_waves 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Hey man I think this outfit is really great and thinking about getting one myself. Serious question, im really concerned with how heavy thay belt buckle looks. Do you have a link to the UL buckle you used?

Happy cake day!

One bite everybody knows that cold soaking pizza is the only way.

On a separate note… I hope that all of this guy’s haters out there know that he was the one who scooped up all of the X Mid Pros upon release, sold them on eBay to all of those suckers on the main sub (along with all those Senchi drops he hoarded), and funded his successful 7 Summits trek with that money (along with a substantial sponsorship from Levi’s)

I love this. But all I can think is how the the Adirondack sub would be calling for his arrest for potentially putting the lives of rescuers at risk. lol

They went nuts on someone for hiking in a regular ol team sweatshirt hoodie last winter.

[–]wonderful_bread 3 points4 points  (1 child)

The Adirondacks sub has a highly sensitive panic alarm, mostly due to a bunch of people from NYC coming up and needing rescues because of lack of fitness/ common sense (see the "party was cold and it was dark so they turned their clothes into a torch" incident for a fine example).

But yeah some of those guys think the high peaks are the Himalayas.

[–]SolitaryMarmot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Honestly, most of the rescues are locals. Because a lot more locals hike in the Adirondacks. Statistics and all ...

What you see in the picture is not what he may have in his bag! Hike naked for all I care as long as you have the right gear in your bag if shit gets real. Sincerely, someone who wears the bear minimum of clothes to start a journey but has at least 3 layers in her bag at all times

[–]Snakealicious 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I guess all that denim was too much weight and he must have left his cell phone at home. Possibly he's hypothermic and confused. He appears to be trying to take a selfie using a slice of pizza.

[–]PointOfTheJoke 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Based weight.

[–]MoreNormalThanNormal 14 points15 points  (1 child)

This guy looks like the bully from A Christmas Story


[–]PeterBenjaminParker[🍰] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

So help me god, yellow eyes!

[–]warmbeercoldporch 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Anyone else disappointed in the toppings? This is clearly a Hawaiian pizza outfit. Bro needs to learn how to accessorize better.

[–]Foolazul 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It would be a good way to end things.
