What does /out/ take on a 24 hour snow camping trip? Me and my friend from Florida are camping out this weekend in Central Maine. We will be walking in about 3 miles and setting up camp. This is my first overnight in the snow so any gear lists or advise would be greatly appreciated! P.S. I need to shop for shelter/sleep gear at Walmart today, any suggestions? Thanks /out/.
>>695993 good tent, not just some shitty one you happen to own
good fire making tools for your skills, if you can make a fire with two sticks, two sticks is fine, if not, bring your own everything, tinder, flame, even wood so you dont have to [not] find it out in the woods
flashlights that are powerful and extra extra [extra] batteries
i always used to have either weed or alcohol or something to bring camping, some dxm to let the ghosts out
protection from ghosts
a big stick... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi /out/, this is my first time posting here. To keep it short, I want to basically live out in the woods, in a little small cabin that will only have a small fridge/freezer, radio, antenna T.V., and a couple of lights, maybe an electric heater. I plan on building this cabin myself and pay for water and electricity with a check from the government.
Now this isn't me completely being self sufficient but its going to be pretty close. I understand that in the winter i'm going to have to buy food from the store, however i want to mostly hunt, forage and farm the food I eat. I would just like some pointers on some books i should read about foraging and surviving in the woods, because most of the stuff that came up on google was just stuff about how to farm organically. I'll need to know more than this, I need to know what kinds of fruit and vegetables are safe to eat (i understand this is region specific mostly) just things like that. Does anyone know of a book that could tell me the basics of living on your own in the woods? I've been thinking of supplies I'll need, like an axe,gun and skinning knife for starters. Any tips or suggestions on what all I should have with me when I do it would be nice.
Pic related, its one of the things i don't want to happen to me.
>>692122 No I'd like a wife or something like that but i'm certain most woman would not be able to live the kind of life i want to. I'm doing it because, honestly, videos games have gotten boring, work sucks, all the new movies suck, fast food sucks....i just don't really enjoy modern society. I'm also a pretty introverted person to begin with, i can cope with not talking to people a lot.
I suppose I'd be very confused and wary of what happened. Likely making me bug out to the wilderness. I live in western massachusetts, I'd probably head west to the AT and take it to canada. Make some kind of permanent home
Who here /hikealone/? I get into this topic a lot with people, and I often get off-looks and disapproving statements on the danger and such. But there is something peaceful about taking to the trails for miles and days by yourself. What's your Favorite experience you've had hiking alone?
>>691592 This. I don't mean to make you nervous, OP, but it's like a 90% chance it'll get infected and kill you. I'd chop off my whole hand if I were you. The infection is probably already spreading. Act fast!
Tips to stay alive? Camping in a few days in southern Ontario, supposed to be -12 C. We have a 3 season tent, bags rated to -17 and one rated to -10. Have thick(ish) sleeping mats Probably going to feel more like -17 Ty
>>686806 I'm also a beginner. Started getting into birds after spending more and more time outdoors; My only equipment is a confortable foldable chair, guide to local birds, camera & some good binoculars.
I'm thinking very seriously about leaving home with $400 and walking to Oregon from Connecticut. I have had no luck securing a job and want to leave home asap before I become a NEET cellar dweller. What would you do?
I've spent the past several months researching boots in preparation for several weekend backpacking trips I have planned for this Spring. I finally decided on a pair of Vasque St. Elias and the damn things didn't last 10min until one of the metal eyelets came loose. So /out/, has anyone else experienced this with Vasque and what is a similar boot in the sub $200 range that I should try next?
>>690002 Have you contacted the seller? I bought a pair on Amazon. I liked the fit but I didn't particularly love the style/look. Sent them back and got a pair of Vasque Erikkson GTX. I don't think they are being made any longer but they are still available on Amazon. Same price as the St. Elias. As for quality. The reviews I've read all seemed to indicate that quality has improved over the past few years.
