So I just recently moved to this state for work related reasons. What /out/ activities are there in this state. I'm in the clark county area. I'm also interested in urban legends and spooky creatures besides area 51 ayy lmao ayy lmao if anyone has anything.
>>881031 Valley of fire. Kayaking up the Colorado river on the north side of lake mead has some amazing cave systems. A lot of stuff hasn't been seen since the damn was built because the reservoir is at an all-time low. Ski resort at my Charleston is the most ghetto resort I've ever seen, but its there and they're expanding. Plus its only 45 minutes from the strip.
Next bread will be "Fly Boy" for the tripfag. Gotta post this before I burn my pizza...
Anybody else have anything to add to the Pastebin or Imgur? I put a little saltwater one in there, but I want to do a river one possibly and trout. Just a summary of good spots to target, how to fish those spots, some simple rigs, and a good tackle setup for the beginner.

>>880291 How wouldn't it be out? Tug Hill Ny here. Got some new gear a few weeks ago at the show and I'm officially hyped for the snow to fly. As for what I ride I have a '04 f6 sno pro and a '15 switchback. Usually have 5-6 people in our group that all ride together around the hill, shits so fun. Pic related is the trailer I picked up this summer incase we get fucked like last winter
>>880291 >Do you sled? A little. >What kind of sleds On a '16 Assault 800 this year. Mostly-stock - some clutch work (primary cover/setup, team-tied secondary), rails, couple little things i've done. Keeps me in improved-stock class on the hillcross track, I don't have the bank account to run with mod guys. Added a snowbike to the fleet this year, I'll probably get a bunch of time on that.

What do you do if you're going for an outdoor adventure by yourself? I don't really have any friends where I live but I'm trying to get out more, and just go see a thing. But it seems like whenever I get out for an adventure, it feels fruitless. Honestly, I'm trying to simply get out more than sitting at the computer; going out alone has got to be better than sitting in the dark playing video games every day.
I get to a place, nobody around, and I have to ask myself what the hell I'm doing there. Its like... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Not many people can simply enjoy being /out/ for /out/'s sake. If you're having trouble finding purpose, set a goal or specific destination you want to go see. Think up a few things you may want to do on the trail like improvement on building fires, setting up shelters, creating a bird watching log, etc. My goal for this weekend is to do 20 miles on the PCT and work on my ability to identify plant life and fungus. Then I'll head back to camp and get dickered on some rum around the fire all night, and a little light reading.
Anyone have a lot of succulent knowledge? I picked these up at a local nursery on the clearance shelf. They were just labeled "Sedum sp." I think they are both Sedum adolphii cultivars. Maybe one is just Sedum adophii?
I've always loved hiking, but I'm new to camping so I've been researching and gathering equipment. Right now I'm looking to buy my first knife. I can afford the Buck Knives 110 and from what I've read it seems to be iconic with outdoorsy people and it has good reviews, so it seems like I can't go wrong with it. However I would like your opinions on it.
Is there anything that would serve me better for the same price? Please make suggestions if you have them.
I'm thinking of buying a canvas wall tent and stove and solar panels and live off the grid on my Grandparent's ranch. It'd only cost me $10-15K tops. How would I go about setting up plumbing for showers, cleaning, etc.

You went to a campground, You didn't go /out/. That's what pisses me off. Learn the difference. Going to your state park campgrounds and meme hiking trails isn't going /out/. Creating your own primitive shelter miles from any trails is being /out/. Climbing a mountain is being /out/. Going hunting in the freezing cold during Winter and eating game you kill while making a shelter is /out/.
Not a surveyor and never will be but I'm a rod man for one a couple days a week. Back to surveying beside an old cemetery tomorrow, they used concrete plot markers for corners but I don't know how accurate they were set
>>874985 Thanks mate. Very appreciated your first hand experience. After taking a look they have a few products that I want to buy that are cheaper than here even with the shipping costs. Maybe I will give it a try.
So I came across a few fly rods after my grandad passed. Only thing is it doesn't state the weight of the rod. Any way I can find out the weight so I know what reel and line I can put on? Also general fly fishing thread
>>874715 You can usually tell fly rod weight's by feel and thickness if not labeled otherwise
>This is not my guide to determine Rod Weight but it has worked for me. I also had existing fly line that I measured which made it easier
Materials Needed to Calculate Fly Rod Weight
measuring tape clamp paper clip metal washers accurate scale
Determining the Weight of a Fly Rod 1. Measure the entire rod, minus the grip, in inches. In other words, measure from the very top of the grip (not the butt end, but the other end) to the skinny end of the rod. Mark down the measurement and then divide by 10. For a rod measuring 90 inches from grip to tip, that would give a final number of 9. This represents 10% of the rod length, excluding grip.
2. Clamp the rod tightly to a table, putting the clamp on the cork grip and letting the rest of the rod extend out over the edge of the table. No part of the rod except the cork grip should touch the table.
3. Measure the distance between the very tip of the rod and the floor. Now subtract from that the figure derived in Step 1. Continuing with this example, if the rod tip is exactly 36 inches above the floor, subtracting 9 gives a new number of 25 inches.
4. Pry a paper clip partially open and hang it from the tip of the rod, then begin hanging washers on the paper clip until the rod tip bends down to the mark calculated in Step 3. For the rod in this example, one would add weight until the tip was exactly 25 inches from the floor.
5. Remove the paper clip from the rod and measure the weight of the the paper clip and all of the washers used in bending the rod. This weight must be in grams. Accurate scales can usually be found at grocery or hardware stores and post offices.
6. Divide the weight by the number from Step 1. If the paper clip and washers in our example weighed 30 grams, one would divide that by 9 to get roughly 3.3 grams per inch. This is called the stiffness ratio.
7. Find the stiffness ratio and its corresponding line weight in the following chart, and you now know the weight of the rod. In the example used, the rod turns out to be an 8 weight and should be used with 8 weight line.
Stiffness Ratio: (grams/inch) .............Recommended Line Weight (Rod Weight)
1.4 - 1.6 = 3
1.6 - 1.9 = 4
1.0 - 2.2 = 5
2.2 - 2.6 = 6
2.6 - 3.0 = 7
3.0 - 3.5 = 8
3.5 - 4.15 = 9
4.15 – 5.0 = 10
5.0 - 5.9 = 11

I think the main issue would be water weight? If you took some powder with you and just re-hydrated that I don't think refrigeration is a problem. Just make sure you have some way to ensure water purification if you haven't already. That said, apparently the stuff is not so great for the enjoyment of food. So obviously some snacks are a must.
Hey /out/, I've just found out that in a month I will be homeless.
I have plenty of clothes, access to water and hygeinic things, my biggest concerns are
1) staying warm while sleeping in my car in the winter 2) keeping food from going bad
So, what do you suggest? Its cold enough to freeze most things like milk and water etc, so should I not keep perishables underneath my car where the sun won't fuck with them? And how can I stay warm without spending a fuck ton on a space heater? Thanks.
Just finished season 2. I rooted for the person who won since the talk around the half season mark about what the money was going to. Damn if I didn't shed a tear or two along the way. That win was as deserved as the season one one.
What does /out/ think of Alone? Are there other shows like it with feels and no bullshit? Keep spoilers out in case others haven't watched it.
>>869378 meh he was the biggest faggot in the show. and there were some big faggots so that says something. he showed zero skills or practical work for the vast majority of the show. he was stubborn that's got him the win and that the better players quit before him for various faggy reasons.
>>869511 >biggest faggot in the show The award for that goes to the fucking hipster. You know it, I know it, anyone who's seen the fucking show knows it. You saying otherwise makes me think maybe YOU'RE the hipster.
>>867658 Find out if your state has a fur trappers' club and if said clubs put on a clinic weekend. They will likley administer your state'a trapping liscene test there. The sport is dying so most old hands are more than willing to teach a newcomer. Also trapperman.Com forums. Source: Guy who had his first trapping season at 21 years old this winter past
>>865241 pro-tip you can actually eat these little fuckers seeds. remove the pokey outer bit to get to the seed.
I would say these are the worst, but jeans+boots they are just painful pulling off ur shit. whats worse is the spic of all florida plants. Opuntia humifusa. they jew you twice, big ass spines that burn like hell, and little bullshit hairs that come off when you touch the big ass spines bases...
3rd up the white trash of florida plants is the Smilax vine.
Just got hired as a parks worker here in nz so that's one down (19, been doing construction/storeman type jobs since leaving school) other one is get to a level of skill and emotional maturity where I can spend a month living self sufficiently off the land, at this point in fiordland.
