Hey /out/, what is your headgear innawoods?

I have this peter grimes cowboy hat I got at a music festival for free. I wrapped a Chocolate Chip camo bandanna around it. I often keep a book of MRE Matches, a lighter, a little pocket knife, and a pencil.

Hey /out/

I currently own this Fjallraven Skogso jacket. Its a nice coat, good pockets etc but I'm looking at better waterprrofing options than rubbing it with a bar of beeswax and melting with a hairdryer.

After a little bit of googling, i cam across tincloth. Is this a viable waterprrofing option? is there any experience of using it?

as far as i know its boiled linseed oil and beeswax melted together and then soaked into the fabric.

pros / cons?

Tincloth is just Filson's marketing name for their heavy weight waxed cotton.

Cons are it is heavy and has to be replenished at least every year if you wear the garment much. Also it isn't 'waterproof' and not even as water resistant as modern membranes like goretex. Even in a middling rain, mist gets through.

Pros are that the water resisting properties are part of the fabric rather than a distinct membrane (like goretex). This means a garment can be composed of a single layer that...

Has anybody here considered buying a bunch of land and setting up a tiny home with solar power and gathering water from a stream? I'm thinking of buying land in eastern Washington and setting up a tiny house on a foundation rather than trailer, getting satellite internet, and being a semi NEET (I earn interest from my investments).

You can buy a nice house in Washington on 10-20 acres surrounded by National Forest to also /out/ on for less than $500K. But I could buy 30-50 acres for less than $75K, build a small house for another $50K, and have more land to own. Which I figure won't make a difference if I'm surrounded by National Forests. But at least I can do what I want without a babysitter. Plenty of privacy to raise chickens, grow pot, shoot what I want, etc.

Normally like the 3rd time I trip over something or after I lose something important and can't find it.

Hi guys!
I thought it would be really cool to design an ultimate fishing box that an aspiring angler could do well with out on the lake without spending too much money!

So, if you could only own one Plano/Flambeau box with lures for the rest of your life, what would you include?
P.S. it would be great to include a picture/link to the lure and write why you choose it.

Hey, /out/doorsmen.

Last year I started wearing glasses as I my eyes went to shit. The frames that came free with the appointment are faggy hipster glasses, but I was okay with it at the time as long as I could replace them in the future.

Now that I've saved enough moneys, what are some /out/ approved eyewear that will protect me from the elements as well as wear and tear? Do anti-fog glasses exist?

I have no idea what the smartest or most efficient way to start this thread is... but here goes.

Im going to take a sort of 'National Forest Tour' when Spring breaks in full. I plan to leave from Detroit, MI, in early April. I am an avid and experienced outdoorsman, but Ive never taken a road trip...
I want to start in Wayne NF in s. Ohio, and from there meander through some of the southern and Appalachian NFs before booking it westward.

I have so many questions, however, and I have no one in my life whose ever done this sort of thing, so I only have you sc/out/s to rely on ;^)


So I'll be roadtripping quite a bit kind of all across the US.
But some pretty major questions have remained unanswered, and I havent been able to find what I need with google.

>Where will I be able to get water? I have purification tablets and a filter for innawoods and such, but what about general water? Should I stock up on store bought gallons? Do I fill up at public park drinking fountains or something?

>What about electricity? I can charge my phone in car, but what about my laptop? Should I even bring my laptop? I am a writer and digital painter so thats where most my work is done

>What about eating on the road? Im obviously not going to be fast fooding it most the time, where can I wash my dishes?

>Can I really do dispersed camping in any national forest? This is what I was told previously and what I did for years in Michigan

I am sincerely relying on you shitposters for some guidance or advice. Even sites with the answered to these questions would help.
Thanks, sc/out/s
