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/.

good tent, not just some shitty one you happen to own

wool socks

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...

There may not be snow there depending on exactly where. Super mild winter for the most part this year.

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.

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.

Very comfy game. Wildlife is highly aggro on the highest difficulty but it's not horribly balanced

Not too much bushcrafty stuff yet. If you're looking to make hatchets and knifes out of rocks and sticks you're out of luck for now

But the game is gorgeous and I can't wait to see what the future holds for it

9/10 /out/ game

Firewatch is pretty and has an okay story if you're into walking simulators. The music is amazing

Best cheap backpacking meals?

Sick of paying $7 a meal for mountain house style meals.

I want meals that you can just add water to a bag. Easy to make. Easy to clean up.

What are the best cheap options. The Knorr pasta sides are good, but most seem to need butter and milk in cooking... can you cook them with just adding water in the bag?

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?

Sometimes I hike alone, sometimes I hike with friends. Depends on my mood and the hike.

If I hike alone I make it a point to tell someone where I'm going and when I expect to be back.

If it gets real cold it will be tempting to cover your head inside your sleeping bag. Your breath will make water vapor inside bag and you will get damp.

I've decided to start getting serious about all this.
I'm starting to garden, I started to learn how to fire rifles, planning on renovating some old house of us, etc.

What are some of the essential guide you'll recommend?
* general
* military guides
* surgery, medicine
* bushcraft

My first advice would be:
Survive the economic collapse, by Piero San Giorgio
Synthetical, didactic, complete, explain the causes and their consequences and what you should do about all of this.

Is pic related a good starter for bushcraft?

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?

I don't know if another boot is what I would recommend, perhaps it would be possible to simply use a rivet gun and fix it. It would be cheaper than getting another pair of boots.
>>
>>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.

>>690002
Basque are crap. Get a heavy duty trail runner. Whatever fits you best unless you need boots which you don't
