this will sound gay, but this game (firewatch) has seriously inspired me to become a fire lookout.
So if anyone here has been or knows a fire lookout now would be the time to convince me that being completely alone hours from civilization is not absolutely perfect, because it sounds exactly that.

Yeah, no. Most operational fire towers are along popular hiking trails and double as tourist attractions. You'll have plenty of visitors.

Now that the zombie popularity craze has died down a bit, is Max Brooks The Zombie Survival Guide a valid preparedness book? It has a number of good points for preparing for a major event and also contains /out/ related info.

Anybody know what this type of reel is called?

Are these good for just spinning fishing spoons, lures, etc?

What are you just a salty that never casts with baitcasters? You prolly just sit on a pier dropping 1 Oz weight to the bottom. The reel in the pic is freshwater, and they are the most difficult to use.

So I'm backpacking for 4 days and 3 nights outside in Canada, it's -20C almost everyday so I need tips for keeping warm and staying awake for the whole trip. There's no need for sleeping bags, tents or whatever, I'm more looking for stuff to heat up, heaters ( MSR superfly for exemple) and things to keep hand and feet from freezing.

It has to fit in a backpack

Staying up for 4 days? During a hike? You wanna kill yourself or what?

It will affect your decisions, make youe body fail (if you'll face) dangerous sifuations. Either way, you will fall asleep during the night, and trust me, when that happens you want to be in a badass sleeping bag, under shelter, with fire near you.

Are Buck knives meme knives or are they actually decent? I know they are supposed to make knives for hunting, survival, tactical, cutlery, and ( image related, ) custom gift knives. I've heard decent things about the ones they still make in America but what I want to know is do they make any decent outdoor knives?

I just want to note this thread is specifically for Buck knives. Depending on the replies I get I'll either buy from Buck of go with another company like Esee.

>any decent outdoor knives
Any knife that is not utter shit is a decent outdoor knife. I don't care what knife you buy, just make sure it's not shit knife and that it fits for your needs.

I wouldn't select a knife based on /out/ opinions but that's just my opinion. If you think Buck is anything like ESEE you're already on the wrong track desu mate.
>>
>>686186
They are good knives but its important to remember they were designed a long time ago so they lack some of the things people expect these days

No pocket clip so its going to be carried in a pouch on your belt or just dropped into your back pocket, no thumb stud so its pretty much a two hand opener, no plastics so its heavy and it wasn't made to withstand the abuse of batoning

Despite that however the 110 is one of the most sold and copied knife patterns around, a lot of guys say its cleaned more game...

Looking for feedback on an investment idea.

41, married with kids. Worth (my wife and I, that is) around 1.1 million. All bills and debts are paid. Money is in pretty chill, slow stocks (and other things, but all money market related. No hard cash, etc. Own our home and land, but if the market were to collapse, we wouldn't have much).
Have an extra small home that's on Airbnb, and it is doing ver well, so I got to thinking:
Why not buy another home and put it on Airbnb, too? It takes the money out of the market, and puts it in something real.

But,...

Someone on b suggested a rental property is the way to go, and I agree it's a good idea. In a recession, we probably wouldn't need to sell this place, and renters would be interested.

I know tons of guys who use them for different things, but mostly moose hunting

They are simply amazing. The heat they retain is mind blowing, and even in sub-zero temperatures you can sit quite light-clothed and still feel like you're sitting at a normal room in your home, perfectly heated.

Not cheap, but I would say that they are the best you can get, and definetly worth the money

A bit heavy and expensive, but I think the pattern would work for my area (Colorado Platue).

Woods that aren't full of rednecks that are still public are hard to come by. I would actually recommend somewhere desert like.

I've spent the last few years around the davis mountains in Texas. Gotta say, its one of the only places where you really can be properly alone, as in nobody else as far as the horizon, that isn't somewhat shitty due to the other people who show up there.

In general I know what I wanna do. Since I was a kid the idea of just barebones, a few tools, survival in the middle of nowhere was this unobtainable fantasy. I've dealt with enough people and I'm incapable of the bullshit standards and subtle nuances of communication that are so common now. I just want to be alone and exist within nature just like any other species.

I use them only for my sleebin bags. I suppose organizing them so socks/undies/undershirts are all in one and outwear is all in another would help save space, but honestly unpacking those things is kind of all-or-nothing affair.

I tether my sleebin bags to the oustide of my (external frame) pack, so I really have to have a layer of protection on my stuff. Get a nice easy, lightweight comprssion sack and you're good to go. Really gotta keep dirt, moisture, buggies, etc. off your sleeping stuff. I did one 3-day hike using a trash bag wrapped around my fleece sleeping...
