I'll be graduating college this spring and am trying to get back into backbacking. did it a lot in middle school and high school, but my last trip ended with a bad fall down a cliff. Haven't really been /out/ since (go to college in phila).
So I have two questions for you:
1) know any good places near philly to do a quick overnight? Not really looking for a campsite but an actual trail or forest.
2) how would you go about replacing the top part of a 10 year old backpack from north face. black kid at my summer camp used it as a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey, so I just got my first car, it has a very spaceous trunk. I'm looking to build a bug out bag for this car, to keep me alive should I have to drive away and flee or if it will brake down in the middle of nowhere.
I though of packing the stuff in a 60L canvas bag or similar. what I'd pack:
med kit road kit (warnvests, signs etc) flares water MREs a knoife starter cables
Do you have any infographics/recommendations ?

Six mountain house meals, a cheap Sierra cup, supercat stove, bottle of HEET, Sawyer mini filter, two 2-liter bottles of distilled water (Sawyer will thread onto these), a cheap cold-weather sleeping bag. As long as you stay in your car, this will will easily last you 3-4 days. Someone will drive by in that time.
I'd also add a can or two of fix-a-flat, make sure you have a spare tire and know how to change it, some cash,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>703320 >recommendations? there is a lot if information if you search on google and youtube a lot of it is maybe survivalist and preppers who put guns and ammo in their kits and a lot of things the ordinary person probably wouldn't store in his car, but regardless if you're a prepper or not..they might still give you some ideas.
>>703561 I've been interested in /out/ and /k/ survival stuff for a long time, but I don't have that much money.
I have packed right now, an ox whip, emergency window breaker and belt cutter, lights, tools, spare tire, emergency signs and vests, med kit. Will stock up on water and food in the next days and get a spare tank.

alright guys so I am curious as to how hard is it to camp anywhere in a national forest. some call it stealth camping/illegal camping. etc.. what im trying to say is. Is it possible and if so how hard is it to do it without getting caught? i live in CA and have considered angeles forest as a first option. a few weeks ago driving down angeles crest i saw a tent which had been randomly set above the highway with no fucks given, mind you i was driving there at 7am. I know the sheriff's traffic is heavy on this highway so it makes me wonder what the consequences of doing so... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>702420 It's not bad, you just need to find stuff to occupy your time so you don't feel bored / lonely. Go hiking, fishing, swimming, etc. during the day and bring a book and a reading light for at night. It gets boring if you're just gonna be sitting around your campsite by yourself for a couple of days.
Anyone know how available campgrounds are? Me and my friends were gonna go to Joshua tree this weekend (we live in LA), but I called in and they said they fill up by thursday. So I thought Zion, but I don't want to drive 7 hours and then have there be no spots...
No reservable spots are open, so I'm asking about the walk-in, first come first serve campgrounds instead.
>>702375 I haven't been to a campground for anything other than refilling my water since I was a kid.
Why would you want to pay, just to listen to kids screaming and drunkards arguing about guns all night? Find yourself a nice section of forestry land where you won't see or hear another sign of civilization.
>>702333 My professional life is solving other people's problem. My family life is solving other people's problem. My friends love nothing ore than telling me about their problem hopping I have a solution.
>>702333 I hate being inside I hate modern society I hate modern culture I want to be alone I want to do difficult rewarding things with my hands I like wildlife, plants, rocks, nature in general I like storms
Give me your best booze stove design with pot holders and best fuel types please. What is better make one or buy ready to use kit from china for 10eur? Tired of burning rotten wood and getting my clothing smell lile shit to just make some coffe while /out/
I've always used something like that. If made correctly you can set the pot right on the stove with no pot stand and it's self priming as well so no need for a priming plate. Just fill the center, light, wait for the jets to take and set your pot right on top.
Hey guys, I have some weeks time free from work and I'm thinking about just going somewhere nice into the woods. But I'm having trouble finding a patch of forrest anywhere in Europe where I can walk freely without meeting too much civilisation, just want to be for myself.
Who of you knows some spots?
Also feel free to post your experiences in the woods in winter/spring.
Just spend a few hours on google earth looking for big green patches. There's no real wilderness outside Scotland and Scandiwegia, but there are lots of options to be alone: -Corsica -Sardinia -Pyrenees -Italian central mountains -Balkans I've never been to the Alps but it looks like there are lots of isolated woodlands where you wouldn't be bothered.
It's easy to FEEL isolated in Europe; a bit trickier to BE isolated.
>>701710 Southern utah is a big place with lots of varying climates. If you are talking deep south, like St George, then it's going to be in the 40's at night. Zion, it'll be in the 20's, moab will be between 0 and 30, cedar city will be in the 30's, etc.
