Idk if there is a general thread for /out/ locations or not.

Are there any good places to go /out/ in Virginia for 5-7 day fishing trips? Looking for some place that allows dispersed camping but is within a large lake or river for fishing. Tired of hiking through Southwest VA (Skyline Drive, GW&J National Forest) and only seeing small creeks.

I'm also in Virginia ( near DC, right by the point of the triangle shape in the top) and looking for a good place to camp.

Not sure if I should go to a trail and just walk into the woods though, I'd prefer some uncharted woods but I also don't want to step on a bear trap

There is this secluded lake in the GW forest outside of Harrisonburg. I haven't been there but I was looking on google earth and it seems like the perfect place for camping/fishing.

Hi I was wondering I could share a survey related to my class: conservation biology. A big section of this covers habitat conservation and environmental concern. I would really appreciate an opinion! This is my final project and I need as many participants as possible. Thank you for those who do help out!

Don't know if these threads are common or not...but I currently only have eighty dollars in my account.
Is it plausible to live in my car in a city like Denver or Rapid City (biggest cities near me) and live okayish?
Would I have enough time to survive on this amount of money until I get a job at McDonald's or Walmart to get more income?

Also stories of similar experience or just general poor travel advice.

Does that $80 give you enough fuel to drive to Denver or Rapid City? If those two are the closest to you, you're going to need gas money.

What about food? How comfortable are you going without for a couple days? Or dumpster diving?

Can you currently qualify for unemployment or are you a NEET?

How do people actually enjoy going to campgrounds? I just spent a weekend at one in East Texas and it was horrible. I've always gone hunting for 3-5 days and brought a tarp and sleeping bag. That's my ideal version of camping. Staying at this shitty campground was awful. You can't even leave your site for a hour to hike or fish without some fucker stealing shit. There's always drunk people yelling in the distance. The nearby streams were cluttered with trash, beer bottles, etc. Are all campgrounds this messy? Keep in mind this was a free campsite on a National...

Bespoke camping tarp vs cheap-o wal-mart tarp

Hi /out/. What are your opinions on expensive bespoke camping tarps like the Kelty Noah vs. cheaper all purpose tarps found at wal mart?

Obviously they will be lower quality, but do they work well for cheap camping?

I've never camped with just a tarp so I don't know, but thanks for the advice.

I was worried that the price would be inflated for no reason. Is there a good cheap tarp one would recommend?
>>
>>705323

I've tried $5 tarps from yard sales and $350 tarps made for camping. There's hardly difference. Camping tarps are designed to be more light weight. Just get a 9x5 tarp from Lowe's, Wal-Mart, or wherever. "Camping tarps" are no different than tech companies putting "for gaming" on their shitty products to make it sell. Shilling out a few hundred bucks for a lightweight tarp isn't worth it.

Condition and polish your boots.
If it's starting to separate somewhere, get it glued by a shoe repairer before it gets worse (friction between two separated surfaces wears them out and this means harder to fix).
Don't dry your fucking boots in front of a fire or heater.
Get soles replaced BEFORE they wear fully through, unless you like paying to get the midsole and insole repaired too.
Stitched on soles are overrated, modern glued are bretty gud.

>dry

Dry the outside with a towel. Pull out the insoles and stuff in an old sock filled with either dry rice or cedar chips (you can get them cheap at the pet store)

I want to try to survive 30 days in the woods. My challenge is to only choose 10 things to carry with me, excluding a med kit and hunting rifle for defense against any dangerous animals. I won't use it for hunting and won't take from any animal I would have to kill with it. What should I bring?

Fishing equipment, because that's the easiest form of sustenance in the woods.

I go camping every weekend in the Summer, but to campgrounds. I always bring a tent and other easy mode items. This time I plan on camping on my Grandmother's land. They own about 50 acres in the National Forest in Southwest Virginia. I've done similar camping trips but nothing ever this long.

hey /out/, /x/ here. the folks back home are busy circlejerking over succubi and conspiracy theories so i figured i might as well ask you guys just in case someone here knows some stuff

so, what do you think/know about druidry/druidism?

that much i have been able to figure out

from what i've read it seems like the romans under Caesar mostly wiped out the druids (outlawing their practices etc), and since the druids themselves never wrote down anything (their teachings were delivered verbally), all we have to go on is the accounts of others and their observations of the druids

i might be completely wrong but that's what i've come up with from researching around a bit

Thoughts on Maxpedition's new line? I've been impressed with all their other gear (own 3 different packs) How about these for quality bug out bags that don't make you standout like a sore thumb? Especially in an urban environment.

Sure, it's smaller, but 3V gear has a sling bag thay is sure as hell cheaper than maxpedition.
If i could afford maxpedition I would buy maxpedition, though.

>>704627
I have a pack with that exact sling design from them. It's a neat little thing, but if you put any kind of weight into it, it starts to grate on your shoulder a bit. The ability to unclip a single buckle and swing it across yours chest to be accessible is nice, though. I mostly use it as my motorcycle pack- keeping tools, spare spark plugs, water, snacks, stuff like that in it.

Can someone tell me why you would choose a single sling over two? I don't really understand.

So what are your big /out/ plans this summer?

I've just moved to Paris and I'm thinking about what to do this July/August. I have about a month to hike and preferably camp wild. I'll probably go to northern Spain like last year. Gorgeous.

Gonna panhandle there for a bit and then move down south to spain and into portugal. I heard theres a great hippie/hobo/tramp culture down there. After that i want to go to italy, and then east europe for the nature. After that i'll see where life takes me.

We could go together from paris to spain with a hobo if you like.
