I've seen a lot of threads mention or focus on camp stoves but none specifically for backpacking bio stoves. Have you had experiences with them; if so which? would you buy one or do you regret buying the one you bought? Are they useful or useless? Image related; the Firebox G2 popular backpacking stove.

Whatcha' think about it? Anyone have any experience hunting with the thing?

I'm gonna make one, one of these days, and I do know that it's a good enough weapon to stay in active use well into not-so-long-ago.

I tried to make one as a kid after I read the clan of the cave bear books, had marginal success but I mostly screwed around with bows. Big upsides to an atlatl is they are simple to make, and spears are more durable than arrows so I could see it being useful in a survival situation. I think the handle should have loops for your middle fingers on it to reduce hand strain and make it a better arm extension.
>>
>>683980

That and it's pretty fucking powerful.

I mean, our forebears were naturally stronger than us but it doesn't diminish the fact they hunted mammoths with that thing.

Another advantage of an Atlatl is that its kinetic energy (poundage) is determined by the projectile and not the thrower itself, contrary to bows. Means it's far more versatile and allows for multitude of projectiles for varying kinds of game.

i think that it has about the same power as the sling,with pierce damage added,and generally less accuraacy tho

How does /out/ feel about full time RV off the grid living?
I plan on selling everything and living in a van and moving from place to place and camping much of the year.

You'll end up spending a shit ton on gas. Enough so you could find a place to live.
>>
I'm definitely down for off-grid and getting away from the hustle and bustle. But, honestly, to be on the road a lot seems like it's a lot of work and very tiring.

If I were to be honest with myself, my attempt to go RVing would really just result in me staying in one spot for an extended period. So, why not just go toward that. Live in a small, low-cost place and that's it.
>>
It's a good dream to have, but it really only fits after retirement, when you've built comfortable bank accounts to afford the expenses of living on the road.

I've got an aunt/uncle that are full-time RV'ers. It can be done, but unless you've got the funding to make it happen, it's not realistic.

I need a bag that i could carry on my back with all my gear for camping for a few days but i need it to also not look ridiculous for a bag to carry my books in at college. It also needs to be under or around 50 dollars. Does /out/ have any advice.

Also the picture is of a bag i would like to get but the frame on it is not removable

What are your Experiences/Thoughts regarding MILSURP? I understand a lot of people like it because you can get high quality items at a low price while some see it as fashion while some others see it as an abomination. Did you/would you buy MILSURP ( military surplus ) items if/when the situation is/was right? Did you buy it local or online/if you bought it online where from? How did/is the purchase work(ing) out for you? I'm asking simply because in need of new long-lasting /out/doors gear and am thinking of buying MILSURP.

Surplus can be great of you know what your looking for. I'm a former mil fag so I know what my preferences are pretty well. Generally speaking they are great in that they are cheap and usually pretty durable. But lack features and comfort of commercial alternatives. I honest would avoid it unless you've had previous experience with it or are willing to spend a but to experiment. For example I really like the Alice pack but I also know many ppl who hate it. This stuff varies and is very individual based in your habits and preferences.

Depends on what surplus you need.

Clothing/boots

Hell yeah, there's ton of good stuff for all weather conditions. Just don't wear it around or you'll look autistic

Packs/rucksacks

There are a large variety but there are a select few that are best. Personally, I'm a fan of Alice but it is all subjective preferences

There are a ton of options for tents shelter halves/sleeping bags/biveys/cots/you name it

Thanks to OP, I found out about this clay pot watering system, watched some videos and decided to try it myself on my garden. Being in a 10b climatic zone (Italy), the summers can get pretty hot and dry, so what I'm trying to build now is a little veggie garden using this irrigation system. I could not find these specific "Ollas" clay pots they were using, but watching a video, I found out you could use a simple, conic shaped terracotta pot, which is extremely easy and cheap to get here. So I drew this little concept on inkscape, basically to explain my desired...

Hey /out/

Looking for a tent which i can use this summer for some hiking trips with my gf and some with a couple of friends. A 2 person tent will do but i dont know any good tent brands since ive been using tarp or a friends tent.

The tent is gonna be used in Scandinavia and since ill be using it with my gf it needs to be light (my gf is less than 50kg and cant carry a lot so ill be carrying most of our gear, and i would like the tent not to be more than 3kg).

Price range is not that important but it would be cool if the tent could be bought in europe...
