Dave Paulides and The Missing 411

Hey guys, as a lover of the outdoors and being there as much as possible, it's worrying to read about the mysteries and disappearances in these stories. Clusters of missing people with similar events taking people, people just vanishing.

What do you guys think?
As a bonus does anyone here have any stories of weird things happening or something you've heard? Something that was out of place or hard to explain?

For the best introduction on the topic here is a link with probably the best one to get you going.

Hey /out/. I've lurked this board for a while, and I've some fond memories of 'camping' when I was younger, but it was basically just sleeping in a tent on a campground and cooking hotdogs. I've always really wanted to go full blown camping for 3 or 4 days, preferably with no people around to bother me. I plan to play it safe, bringing a tent and extra food whilst still dicking around and trying to make fires and shit. The problem is, I live here. I've done some fair searching and fairly local spots all seem to be relatively small or they're...

I live in PA, definitely lots of places to camp. Unfortunately the southeast end of the state, which you're by, is probably the worst area to go /out/ since it's the most populated area, but there are still places to go.

In any PA state forest or PA state wild area you can camp. There's info online about it. There's state forests and wild areas all over. I suggest just finding one close to you, drive there, hike in, and camp. They aren't crowded like state parks, and sometimes can be very nice forests.

Hi friend. Former delawarefat here, got the fuck out ASAP.

In delaware, you can camp for free at blackbird state forest, which is OK. There's really no good camping out here though.

Most of the good camping is in PA, My favorite camping spots in PA are a couple hours drive from DE, but WELL WORTH IT.

You can backpack the mason dixon trail, up on the susquehanna river. If you send me an email, I can give you detailed route maps and the exact location of some of the campsites.

Not exactly information I like to spread around, but I feel your Delaware...

Look up White Clay Creek state park in DE, it's on the border with PA, and PA has like 1500 acres that adjoins the DE side of the park.

On the PA side I'm sure you could find lots of places to camp that are quiet.

Crazy things you do /out/ when you're bored.
I can't help singing loud some old well known songs, it starts normal but then the lyrics get more fouly and naughty, the more tired I become the more perverted things I sing, deep inside I wish someone to appear to stop this insanity.
When I encounter fresh footprints I scratch pentagrams and voodoo signes on them so hikers might think some creeps are hunting them.
When I reach some remote places high in mountains basically where the route ends I leave some weird writings on the stones like "Hitler did nothing...

When I was a child, this scene in Jungle Book really stuck with me, and I remember trying to do what Mowgli couldn't - that is, climb a tree with a huge trunk like this bare handed.

Is it possible? I'd imagine if you were strong enough with your hands and legs, you'd be able to latch on to the trunk against the force of gravity , but it's naturally gotten a lot tougher to do as I've increased in height and weight.

Not sure where to post this.

I carry the Fenix E35UE. 3 levels of brightness, with a 4th when you keep the button held, letting out around 800 lumens. Takes a single rechargeable 18650 or 2 CR123 surefire style batteries. Only grip is the button is a slim button on the side, can be a bitch with gloves but usually not bad. Battery life is great too, if I am going to need more batteries I carry two fully charged 18650's in a small case that vape batteries come in. Will post pictures in a second

Has anyone been lost in the woods? I've been hiking, camping and hunting far far off trails my whole adult/teenage life and even as a child. I can't say I've ever considered myself lost. I've definately been 10 miles away from where I should have been, but I never feel lost in the woods. I just keep on walking until I correct my mistake. So, who has been outright lost before, for whatever they consider lost? Obviously I am too stubborn to say I've been lost.

Like you, I have never been lost. Because even if I have ended up not knowing exactly where I am, I always have a pretty good idea of my GENERAL location. Usually it is just a matter of taking a wrong trail that went someplace different than where I wanted. As long as you keep direction and major landmarks in mind, you shouldn't ever get lost.

There was one time.

I was up in Alaska working as a guide. Every minute of spare time we could afford was spent hiking with my mentor, a fellow guide. Eventually we were in Denali. He said I'd be doing an initiation of sorts.

He let me take my pack, a tent, and food for a few days. No compass. No phone. No gun. And, as it turned out, the wrong map.

I took the backpacker park bus all the way out to Eielsen visitor center, made sure my nalgene was filled, and set out. I was supposed to "walk as far as I can, spend the night, and be back the next...

Of course, I'd then have to hitchhike back to our hotel.

But bend after bend my soul was crushed. The only progress I seemed to make was deeper into the harsh lunar landscape. It was eerie as fuck, and I couldn't help but think that I wasn't supposed to be there, for some odd reason.

I began to realize the negativity was all psychological. I'd take a break, have something to drink and a bite to eat, and set right off again. Moving was the only way to combat the slippery slide into panic....

I have a rather specific question /out/, and it's one that probably won't go over well but ill try anyway.

I really like learning about bushcraft, survivalism, preparing for SHTF and all that. Not that I feel that it's super important or will be useful but because it's fun and there's still that one in a million chance of it actually helping me someday. However I'm trans which is why I'm asking if it's possible to get estrogen in a survival scenario. I know other people who rely on certain medications have asked similar questions...

Yes gears. What's best depends on the distance and your preference but hybrid or cyclocross is always a good bet. Also, get some proper fenders.

Hey, /out/, I was thinking about getting a pair of western boots for casual wear. I grew up in rural Tennessee so I'm used to people wearing them, but I've never really purchased a pair. I was thinking about getting a pair like pic related, but I'm open to suggestions. Any brands/styles/etc. I should look out for?

I've always worn Justin, but Tony Lama and Ariat are both pretty solid. Go to a legit boot store, and tell them that you don't know anything. They'll measure you up, and help you get exactly what you need.

Once you break them in, they'll be your best friends.

Do you have any friends that you could go on a camping trip with? Maybe a few friends would like the idea. Get a tent, cooler of beer, some hot dogs, few sleeping bags, and hit up a campground.find a hiking trail for during the day, camp at night, have a few beers. Might spark their interests.

If you're in college look for social groups, they often have outdoor clubs.

Check out online forums, often there will be local area subforums with meetups, group camping trips, ect.

Go to church? Maybe start an outdoor group there if you're involved in church.
