>>671856 The ideal thing would be a tarp desinged to cover your bivy directly. It would need a door, obviously.... And maybe we could keep some additional space protected from rain too... I wish something like this existed on the market...
I'm going to be going on a hike with some friends tomorrow. We just found out that it's supposed to be a fucking downpour. I don't have any good rain gear, won't have any time to run out and buy some, and am too poorfag for it anyway.
So, how do I rig up my own raingear?
Here's the most waterproof articles of clothing I have: - Cagoule/ fold away Windbreaker - M65 fishtail parka -Condor Phantom Soft Shell
This is in Southeast Alaska. So I'm deep in the forest hunting ptarmigan/grouse (pretty much only thing in season now) and I had my 10/22. This real dark brown furred thing runs across this kinda hill, I was on my way up. I had my cell phone out using the GPS and I yelled "hey!!" It stopped and stood up on a downed trees root ball. This fucking thing was about the size of a small pony and had really weird large pointy ears, wolves in our area have small ears and are either black or grey in color, and it had a white/grey looking face. I am also going to post... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>671826 >Those are big ears on that thing anon, That's what got me. Wolves here hunt mainly by smell and sight so they don't really need big ears. Coyote's in our area use their ears when hunting small things like mice and voles. I just can't state how 100% positive I am it wasn't someones dog. I'm off work on Fridays so nobody really goes into the woods during the daytime because they work.
How do you keep your electronics charged up while /out/ long term? I'm talking 4+ days.
I'm thinking of going for solar power with this http://www.amazon.com/2-Port-Charger-Anker-PowerPort-iPhone/dp/B012YUJJM8
But i'm not sure how reliable things like this are, if i can rely on it to keep my things properly charged up, or whether its just for emergency use. The other option is to take a few fully charged portable chargers but if they break or get used up, you're screwed. There's wind up chargers but none of them have good reviews and it seems like a gimmick.
So i'm not sure. It's pretty important for me to use my tablet while /out/.
I moved into this rental and my main source of heat is my wood stove. PG&E fell 3 trees in my front yard that were very dead and 1 fell in my back yard. i easily have 4 or more cords of dead wood.
How does /out/ handle their chopped wood? what do you do with the saw dust from cutting it? these trees were very dead, the pine needles at the top were brown, but its still burning like its wet. how long should it take to be really aged?
its dark now but if this thread is still here tomorrow i will provide pics.
find a place in your back yard away from your house and stack the whole pieces of wood on pallets covered in plywood. stack them neatly and cover with a tarp for a year to let the wood season. if you need it that bad, it can be seasoned over the summer. splitting dry wood is a lot easier than wet wood. as for sawdust, just use a leaf blower and rake to clean up the tree mess
I've been looking for a "bug out bag" I guess, I don't really think there will be some kind of happening but I think it would be fun to make one and do innawoods type stuff with it. Problem is I don't know what backpack to get, there's so many different manufacturers. Drago has seemed pretty good so far. What does /out/ reccomend? What are notable qualities to look for in a good survival bag?
I got the daylight backpack from Tom bihn for my get home bag. I know it's not as tactical as other bags, but I hear the aeronaut is a great bag. Durable as fuck too, especially if you get the dyneema bag if you're willing to put up with the fucking stripes.
