If you woke up tomorrow as the last living human on earth - everyone just up and vanishes - how long do you think you could survive off of scavenged stuff (food, fuel, etc) before you have to settle down somewhere and grow stuff?
How long would you have power? How long can you store gas/diesel before it becomes totally unusable? How do you grow stuff when a lot of modern crops are bred to be sterile?
How big of a problem would the sudden, sharp rise in animal populations worldwide be for you?
power grids probably wont stay up without maintenence. all it would take is one small problem for the entire system to fail might want to get far away, upwind and upstream from any nuke plants, and upstream from any dams
>How long can you store gas/diesel before it becomes totally unusable?
a year or 2 if you use stabilizer, little bit longer if you know how to boost octane.

>>887421 >How long before you kill yourself? why would I kill myself? sounds like my fondest dream.
also being the last human on earth is like being a lone kid in a candy store. you would have to actively fuck up to die in such a situation (basically unlimited canned food, gear, weapons, shelter etc pp)
From what I understand of bears, they have the advantage of speed, so DO NOT try to run from one. I'm not too sure if looking big would help more than going up a tree. If I found a bear. I'd try to look big while backing up to a tree to climb up.
>meeting a bear innawoods is a single solution problem what kind of bear? what season? how aggressive is it acting? is it alone? does it have cubs? how big is it? how big are you? how far away is it? has it seen you?
Hey /out/, I live out on about 77 Acres in a small block house. I've been hearing rustling in the woods around the house lately and this morning heard small animals crying. It sounds similar to baby coyotes I think. I was thinking it'd be pretty cool to "adopt" one. What are your thoughts?
Tl;dr: possible coyote or Fox pups in Woods, should I capture one?
>>889231 when I was a kid growing up we had a coyote for a dog, it was crazy loyal but killed a bunch of our ducks so my dad took him for a one way ride to the hills. we had a raccoon for a while but it would tear up the house and sit on top of our doors and grab your hair when you walked by. my dad taught it to do tricks like a dog. (sit rollover beg attack) It bit my granny pretty bad and my dad walked him to the river and tossed him. we never saw him again. my sister cried for like a week.
I say go get one anon.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Reeves County Reeves County *is* in the Rio Grande basin, but only in the same sense that parts of Colorado are. The actual river is over a hundred miles away from the southmost tip of the county. The only water in Reeves County, aside from Balmorhea spring and its associated lake, is the Pecos River. The Pecos River is semi-okay up in New Mexico, but further south it becomes very, very alkaline and it actually shrinks in size as it passes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>888824 You might be able to get enough water if you combine whatever scant groundwater you can find with whatever scant water you can condense from the air. You should play around with that before going all in and buying a plot, though.
>>884323 >living in a shithole that requires a firearms license
As far as your question though, it will kill but not reliably and only if your shot placement is perfect. The majority of your shots will be wounds or stuns that will require you to Finnish off a wounded animal or worse it running off and suffering until it dies
Do yourself a favor and get a decent break action pellet gun and you will get clean h
I asked a question about a month ago about finding a good radio for listening in while /out/ to stay connected with the world for news updates and weather reports. I was looking for something that could receive basic radio station signals and weather channels.
After a few helpful people chimed in I quickly realized there are a shit ton of options available for portable radios and the ones I was looking at were very limited. Also learned that BaoFeng may be cheap and offer lots of features, but they are pretty crappy and probably should be avoided.
I did some lazy "research" after realizing this and decided to pick up a mobile HAM unit, the YAESU VX-6R. I spent a little more than I had planned on, but now I will be able to receive many different signals (fm, police, fire, ems, weather, amateur HAM signals ect) I will also be able to send signals to communicate... I will be getting a HAM license now. You are not permitted to send signals unless you are licensed and you can only send within certain frequencies.
If you send signals and are not licensed, "they" will find you. Fox hunting is a favorite pastime of HAM operators and they are good at locating signals.
The YAESU VX-6R I bought is a used item that has been modded to transmit over 4 bands, a TX mod or some shit. It was cheaper than new in box, and already had the mod done so I went for it. I'll just need a manual for it, easy enough.
I went for this radio because it is durable, waterproof and has a ton of features.
Thank you for opening my eyes to the world of portable radio /out/doorsmen!
TL;DR Just bought a portable HAM, will be getting license, thank you for the info.
This one time in Kyrgyzstan (Manas AFB) it was about -20f and i radioed my patrol leader to come out and drive me to the nearest heated toilet because i had to drop a massive duece.
He was taking forever and i didnt want to shit in the guard shack and spend the rest of the shift smelling poo.
Anyways i gathered my courage and accepted the fact that i was going to have to shit in the plastic portapotty that was half buried in snow for like three months now. I bundled up and headed outside to dig the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

WW3 breaks out and the US declares war and implements a draft. Terrorists attacks are already happening in major cities in the US and thousands of Americans begin to die in heavily populated areas, foreign army has boots on our soil. You plan to cross the US/Canadian border on foot, through backcountry trails. No ID or passport. All you have is yourself and a pack. What do you pack in an at most 50L pack? How many days of food will you pack? What is your shelter, sleep system? Water filtration? You will have to plan on surviving and foraging for months even up to over a year.... Comment too long.

Alright, I pack a gallon of water, a flattened loaf of bread, peanut butter, and a small jar of protein powder. The rest of the room will be taken up by the necessities: gold/cash, a compass, knives, a hatchet, water purifier, fire starter, and the rest. Of course, I would use my car in the beginning, but I image at some point I will not be able to go any further in a vehicle. To make the rest of the journey quicker, I would only sleep a couple hours a day in a tree or under a bush. My final destination would be a small town in Alberta. Alberta is far from the coasts and I would... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

At what point do we start to use deadly force to try and save our planet? Should people start targeting these world leaders who deny what is happening? I don't mean to sound insane or alarming here, I just don't know what else can be done. Hopefully the rest of the world really ups their efforts to slow the damage down, and then the US gets in line.
>>885652 I carry either a S&W Shield or a Sig2022, both in 9mm. I'd only ever use it if attacked, though. Pretending to be a tough guy and going out of your way to spray/shoot a dog thats not on a leash is pretty autistic.
Hey /out/ I'm thinking of getting a nice sleeping bag that will last me my whole life for my 21st. I have no idea what is good in a sleeping bag though and need some help. What would you guys recommend? Is down good? I live in a cooler part of Australia if you need a guide for the climate. Thanks in advance. (Also general sleeping bag thread)
>>885416 Down is more expensive but has much better warmth-to-weight/volume ration when compressed. Down must also NOT get wet as it takes forever to dry and getting it soaked can actually ruin it for good if you arent carefull.
I'd recommend a synthetic sleeping bag for you because of these reasons - unless it rarely rains where you live. Chose a bag from a respected brand and be sure that the min. comfort temperature is as low as the lowest temperature that you expect to use it in (the "extreme" temperature... Comment too long.

>>879364 >deforestation isn't real you're right about the other two being preposterous but holy shit apart from the ones in north america every major forest is decreasing in size and density because of human activity
>>879370 That has been debunked by many researchers. The actual rate of deforestation globally is less than a tenth of percent, when you factor in that most timber is being cleared for it's uses and then replanted, not cleared for human development. Deforestation, in the true sense, means the conversion of forest to some other permanent or semi-permanent land use.
