What's the most north you've ever been? Posted on February 19, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor What's the most north you've ever been?
Akureyri, Iceland. Wouldn’t really recommend going in the winter if I’m being honest.
came here to post this. but I was there in summer fortunately.
pic somewhere else in Iceland.
Grimsay Island just north of Akureyri furthest north I have been. Summer (July) it was snowing!
Some town in Norway above the arctic circle.
71.171062 north aka north cape, norway
Faroe Islands which is only slightly further north from where I live. Would love to visit Iceland
Southern Tennessee. I have never been outside this shape.
R u white?
I am. All the places I've lived here have been majority white too.
67º North Latitude. Just above the arctic circle.
Retarded diversity enjoyer on display. You needn't go far and wide to experience nature - getting hella good at knowing what works in your own climate and area is a great feat by itself.
100%. Sleeping with coyotes going nuts in the distance is scary but top-tier.
If yuo wanna look cool, try this:
>Long-sleeve, dense-weave, light-weight shirt, preferrably linen or synthetic
>Sturdy pants with plenty of slack to cover the ankles
>Sleeping with coyotes going nuts in the distance is scary but top-tier.
Once when I was homeless, living in the woods, I was cooking a steak over a little fire and warming some potatoes I heard a pack of 'yotes in the distance. No big deal, but they kept getting closer then the rain started so cooking slowed. They never actually approached but I could hear them circle my camp and howling.
Didn't sleep great that night, cold, having eaten a raw steak, huddled in my tent clutching my .22
Dang, that sounds rough. Least yuo had a gun
Went and got a better gun after that.
I had actually just lost my house in a divorce, a few acres of land outside of a town population ~200. I was camping out temporarily in area of woods outside that same town. Nearest city was 45 miles away. Got a new job and place to live after a couple months of living like that.
Do cityposters really
I grew up hearing the coyotes in the hills behind my house. When my gf slept over it freaked her out, but I always found it exciting. Always assumed they had made a kill when it happens.
proud of you anon
Touch snow you overly melanated cuck.
Labrador, Yukon, and Alaska. Brrrrrr.
I remember the last thread like this a couple years ago. There was cool picture of owls and stuff. Anyway, I haven't been very far North yet. Glendive, MT is probably the furthest North I've been so far.
ive been to the north pole.
as you can imagine there is nothing there.
but it's so barren that there is a strange beauty about it.
This was kind of how I felt driving through the Cheyenne reservation in South Dakota. Lots of wide open plains in between the small impoverished settlements. There was something especially serene about rolling emerald hills with the sunbeams shining through the fractured stormclouds racing across the sky. It was like something out of a dream.
i'm supposed to be driving through the dakota's this summer and will be looking forward to this experience.
Wyoming was the same way only pink mountains.
I did an 8 day trip there a few years ago. I'll post more photos I took if there's any interest.
been eyeing svalbard on the internet for a while now. how was it? its always interested me becuase its one of the gfew places in the wolrd where you dont need a visa or citezeinship to live there. you can just hang out.
how did you get there?
It's a nice place. I flew via Oslo to get there, flights were cheap-ish.
If you're interested in the outdoors then you'll need a gun to leave the main city, or go with a (expensive) guided tour. I took an empty gun bag and threw some tent poles in to see more of it but you run the risk of meeting a polar bear.
Definitely more interesting places to go but still worth it.
picrel is what the main town looks like
Looks like typical new scandi town
Anchorage airport for a connecting flight to Tokyo.
Farthest north where I touched grass was somewhere in Glacier NP.
Nope, never thru-hiked, though I've done a number of week-long hikes. But my family used to vacation in Maine and I did do some stretches of the AT up there including the final stretch.
Worked on the north slope for awhile. Mixed feelings about the whole thing.
I'm from the Southern Hemisphere. Southernmost I've been was Ushuaia.
Gällivare in Sweden. Hiking in the Arctic circle was pretty neat.
Abisko and agreed
Santa Claus village in Lapland
Been there many times for concerts seeing as I live right across the border
Børgefjell nasjonalpark, Norway. I got an opportunity to go to Tromsø two years ago, but I said no because I had other plans
Quetico provincial park in southern Canada in the summer, mosquitos were hell. Beautiful and think I heard some wolves while I was up there. Stars were beautiful.
Hearing wolves howl is a top-tier PrepHole experience.
On the ground, Edmonton Alberta. In the sky, southern tip of Greenland.
Jasper in Alberta. Farthest south I’ve been is Ushuaia in Tiera Del Fuego, Argentina
Hudson Bay and there were far too many mosquitos, fuck that place.
Maybe you should have done some research and brought one of these sexy things.
in the u.s. - wisconsin (oshkosh airshow)
outside of the u.s. - scotland
Greetings from oshkosh, it still sucks here in case you were wondering
It's Wisconsin. You don't need to clarify that it still sucks. That can just be assumed.
The northwoods are pretty alright. Apostle Islands are cool too. Kettle Moraine has some nice biking/horseback riding/skiing
70.1 - 70.2 degrees north
I was on Vanna/Vannøya (translated to Water Island) for an archaeological excavation for 3 weeks. Red sircle is where I lived and purple square where I worked.
Was there in June and it was 6 dgrees celsius and sleet one day if I remember correctly
pic did not load...
Pic related, house at red circle. It was nice to sit there and drink beer in the midnight sun
Tromsø, shit weather but good outing.
I drove out to Cape flattery when visiting the Olympic peninsula. It was nice.
Most northern I've been is around 70 degrees north in Finnmark, Norway.
Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park
southern Alaska when i was a kid, have family that lives there, it was really cool
Helsinki, but was there because of work so not too much out.
theres no out in helsinki left anyway
Three Sisters, OR. The lakes are gorgeous, but im not a waterfag. The hiking was great. Crater Lake is almost psychedelic in its beauty, gazing across her shores is mindbending. I lived in a tent for the summer doing housekeeping. Fuck housekeeping. I would recommend living outside in the Three Sisters for a summer, maybe winter if youre hardcore.
Murmansk because im from there, left when I was young though and never went back.
Yellowstone for PrepHole related purposes. I live pretty far north as it is so I prefer to visit more southerly latitudes when I travel
a little above Bergen
For about a year I lived on island off the coast of Maine, Mt Desert island. Further north than most Canadians. Beautiful, beautiful place. One of the few places in North America where the mountains meet the ocean. Very cold water. There is a nearby island that is accessible by a land bridge, but only at low tide. Tourists often ignored the warnings and parked their cars on the bridge, then their cars floated away (then sank) when the tide came in.
Interesting social dynamics there. A fancy college exists there, the will of a rich man left his estate to become a college for the arts. But they're pretty out there. I didn't attend, my GF did, but I would wander the "campus" because it was just a bunch of beautiful old buildings built by the sea, most of them empty and unattended. Once I walked into an "art display" of hyperfeminist art. The room had a bunch of bloody tampons and pads hung on strings from the ceiling, and the walls were covered with various vaginal artworks painted in period blood. I know this sounds like a political exaggeration but I swear it's true. More than once I'd go to a party and later find out that I was the only straight man there, the rest were (convincing) cross dressing lesbians and such things.
So it was these people vs the natives of the region, on the island, who were quite conservative, simple, small town people. And everyone had to go to the one grocery store on the island, and such. There were many fights and the locals almost always won.
Anyway, beautiful place. Very cold. During winter it stayed below zero F for months and snowed like crazy, I had to shovel the driveway every day. But the girls would bring me hot chocolate and hot apple cider, so it wasn't too bad.
>During winter it stayed below zero F for months
Well maybe it was only for a few weeks here and there but it was still pretty fucking cold. Forgive my exaggeration.
Oh, something else interesting about that place, the peak of the mountain on that island is the first place to see daylight in America, every day. It's a very good place to take a girl. They love that shit
hitchhiked to Nordkapp and back
pretty funny to see the concentration at the lousy tourist trap and nobody roaming around in the alien landscape
actually, now that I think about it
helsinki-vanta is also the farthest east ive ever been, whereas melbourne is the farthest south and farthest west ive ever been
New York City. I live in Australia, so I don't have many opportunities to go North. I would love to visit Alaska, and go hunting in the Canadian Arctic sometime soon.
I live inbetween So and Norcal but my grandpa lived in Oregon and I visited him long ago. Furthest north I've ever been. The north has always been appealing
Nowhere too exciting
Well, here's the most south.
Cantwell Alaska I got the shit beat out of me by an Eskimo.
I was drunk AF at a bar and I guess I offended him. He beat me inside the bar then dragged me outside and beat me some more. When I woke up someone had put some dog blankets on me so I wouldn’t freeze. They said that kind of stuff happens a lot.
You probably called him an Eskimo
Inuit or Eskimo?
I don’t know Yupik
I asked a native Alaskan if she liked anal:
she said she was Inuit.
blackpill me on kiruna for living there
Considering that mining towns are always shitholes, kiruna feels like normal city.
No available housing
Technically I think you fly almost over Greenland when you fly to England or Germany. So almost Greenland.
Depends on from where you're departing. I flew Seattle>London and we definitely went over the southern tip.
Not much there, but it's pleasant enough.
The boat ride there was absolutely brutal however. That's the day I discovered I actually do get seasick. I'm done with boats in rough water forever now.
I've been to what was the centripetal pole of earth before it moved to where it is now. Yes, true north moves and it's catastrophic when it happens.
There’s no such thing as more or less north. Think about circumnavigation if you go far enough north you end up south of where you started. So theoretically it’s all relative someone in Brazil could be considered “further north” than someone in alaska
Riga. Layover in oslo
