Outdoor recreation: keeping humans fit, fed and happy for thousands of years. The sun on your face, the wind in your hair... all this and more could be yours to experience — if you ever get off reddit and go outside for once!
This subreddit is for all outdoor experiences: we are not limited to any specific interest. Caving, mountain climbing, cycling, bushcraft, gardening, going for a stroll — it's all on topic here!
Feel free to ask questions or ask for advice, show off your snaps, post beautiful scenery, ask for career information, recommend gear or suggest locations — whatever you'd like. Anything and everything Outdoorsy is allowed (as long as it doesn't break our rules)!
Be excellent to each other!
