Best bit of the story is that they neither need nor use their blades nor go /out/, the just post pics of shiny blades in mint conditions, and what they could do with them if ever...
Knifefags are the bottom tier residents of /out/, right on par with the /k/ spillover
/out/ is just /k/ light, that's why all the /k/ stuff like guns knives and patches get so much attention
just learn to live with it and post in a way that you deem suitable. there will always be knife threads and if the effect they have is making people who post useful stuff here leave (or just constantly bitch about knife threads) then that won't help matters.

the only person you can control in this situation is yourself, so in short, deal with it.

I won't name it otherwise this will look like shilling. The gist is that it uses a flexible solar panel (included) to power a small fan and TEG which chills the incoming air, then the condensation drips down into the bottle and you have water to drink.

It is indeed filtered to keep out dust, bugs, etc. but not chemical contaminants, so you don't want to use it in the city.

They claim under ideal conditions it will produce 27 ounces of water per hour. Ideal conditions being 86-104 degrees F, 80-90% humidity.

What sort of performance is realistic...

The most popular version seems to be meant to be mounted on a bicycle. The convection that will be produced thanks to the speed of the bicycle is probably going to help a lot.

It's not trivial to calculate exactly how efficient it will be under different conditions, but obviously it is going to be more efficient the higher the temperature and the higher the humidity. If we for the moment assume that the peltier device is extremely cold we get a higher limit in that the volume of water is proportionate to...

How about a thread for knots and rope work?

So Ray sets up this ridgeline with a siberian hitch.


So on this side you've got the knot against the tree and slack out into the line.
What's going on on the other tree? You do the same siberian hitch but pull away from that tree to make it taut? Or do you do another knot there?

If you pull the siberian hitch away from the tree to make it taut: is there some further knot to keep the hitch on that point in the ridgeline? Otherwise it'll sag to shit under the weight of the tarp, right?
The only knots I find myself using are
>square knot
>larks head
>stopper knot
I would like to know more but I can't think of a situation where I would need a different knot then the ones above. I would be happy for any information on knots and uses that I haven't considered.

I saw a similar thread on /k/. Anyone have any plans for their tax returns? Any gear you are hoping to buy? Saving for a certain trip? I am probably going to buy a suunto core watch and maybe some decent carhartt work clothes for the summer. The rest I will save in general and for school related.

I'm not sure if this is an acceptable thread or not, but do /out/doors men have any good philosophies or life lessons they have learned while /out/ which they can share.

I'm going on a 2 week outdoor trip all alone and I'm wondering what i might learn about myself and whether it will change me or I'll come back just the same.

You'll come back a happier more serene version of yourself. That always seems to happen to me when I go camping.

I'd suggest taking a copy of The Sand County Alamanc by Aldo Leopold and reading it while you're out there if you're interested in /out/ philosophy

Been looking for a good strategy to make a campfire in the snow but havent found anything useful yet, weather around here ranges between -30*c to 0*c and we have about a meter snow, finding dry wood proves difficult.
Im located in northern Norway so majority of trees around me are spruce and pine.
Its easy to find stuff to use as tinder, but as soon as i need to feed the flame with something bigger it's usually too wet to keep the fire alive with, where do i have to look for useable stuff?
Bringing dry wood from home is not an option.

Also, general campfire tread

You'l have to baton off the outer wood to get to the dry inner wood. It's a fuckton of work and serious pain in the ass, but once you get a hot enough fire you can just throw the wet stuff on and it'll dry then burn.
would tinder + portable wood stove work?
i don't make fires often, so it's just a idea

Refill them yourself
I bought a valve to do that and I never got them more than ~half full with a full propane tank and it only dwindled from there because of muh equilibrium pressure
Freeze your propane tanks and fill them them to the half way point. As you fill each one put them directly back into the freezer. Once you fill your last bottle to the half way point, pull the first bottle you filled out of the freezer and hook it up again. Should take another 5 minutes or so and be careful not to over fill it. It will fill 100% full if left unattended. Works every time.

Do bubbles ruin a compasses accuracy? I've heard of people throwing out their compasses when they have bubbles and I remember my father saying not to trust a compass with a bubble.

Your father is a dumb retard then. Most compasses don't even have spirit levels, and unless you're only looking at your compass in weekly intervals while travelling thousands of miles, that lack of accuracy isn't going to be noticeable.

Even if you absolutely did need to use one, it doesn't take much effort to get the compass completely horizontal. Use your shoestring, put it in water, or whatever.

Hello, sc/out/s I'm newish (Been lurking for a little while) to this board and going /out/ in general as spring approaches i would like to get out more i don't know shit about this, any ideas of guides/books i should take a look at. good clothing/gear companies, out/ essentials just basically what types of things ill need to do to get started (Southern Canada)
13 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Welcome, and i guess the best way to start out is go to your local provincial parks and just hike. You will learn what you need as you go. Lots of good information on here, take from it what suits you and disregard what doesnt. I dont know any good books, no reason to adopt one persons philosophy but im sure it wouldnt hurt to learn skills from books. Also, post about your own experiences and what you have found to work. REI or your canadian equivalent, MEC is a good place to at least inquire about gear and they offer free classes in navigation or many other activities
Bushcraft by Mors Kochanski. It's more geared towards long term survival, but the information is still relevant, especially for your area.
Thank you both also bump ill take a look

Hey /out/ how do you react when you see other hikers in the woods? Do you say hi? Ever walk with them? Is there even a point acknowledging people when the trail is crowded?
39 replies and 6 images submitted. Click here to view.
Sup nod and walk past
I always say hi, and never travel with people. I want to be nice, but I want to be alone. Most other people do too. In the rare and horrifying case that someone on the trail is lonely and desperately searching for a friend (like old people in line at the grocery store) you don't want to give them much opportunity to engage with you and start a conversation, otherwise yer fukt. Smile, glance at them quickly with a quick greeting, look down and keep moving.

Just a "hello" and DAS IT MANE.

I get pretty autistic with strangers. I prefer to stop and let them pass or avoid them altogether.

Only on crowded places I may exchange some words, but only with old men.

If they have dogs I am playful with them though. Dogs are master race and the only strangers I welcome
