Hey /out/ I live in Texas and love going outdoors but due to living in Houston I rarely have the opportunity to "get away" as most of the camping spots I go to are full of people. Does anyone know of any reclusive spots where there isn't a lot of people and I could just hike and camp in peace? I really get tired of hearing some dbags blaring the last fetty WAP mix tape or dirt bikes. Plz halp.
It's all in the title, post your jobs. Whether they're what you've done/ you're doing/ want to do. I've worked with the NPS doing basic surveying jobs and trail maintenance for a few summers in high school. Which, considering the park is built around a huge trail, I got my share of gear hauling in.
Anyway, post jobs and descriptions, I'm sorta looking for something to do next.
>>665086 Yeah, one chuck of my job for a month was tracking down planted trees from years before. The span of the trees were over 8 miles in either direction and the GPS just didn't work. Although I'm guessing dedicated planters would have good equipment.
Having trouble with the same thing here in Texas, it's a warm winter but it doesn't get cold cold here til on into February and March. Went for an afternoon hike yesterday at around 4 next thing I know sun is going down over a hill and it's getting cool and dark. Was pretty disappointed
DO some initial research and come back with some more specific questions, I mean fuck if you want something put in just a LITTLE effort, its not our prerogative to give you all the information you think you need.
looking for something i can get in canada that i can charge up and itll have battery juice when im outside, just looking to charge my laptop off of this... any recommendation? dont know how to google this
Hey sc/out/s, So I'm looking for a good pistol to take out with me on solo overnight camping trips because I'm a scaredy man. Would a 9mm round be adequate protection to fend off wolves, bears, and skinwalkers?
Avid hiker but I'm looking to do something a little more /out/, looking to do a multiday trek, now my biggest issue is my lack of knowledge, I know the very basics on building a fire etc but after reading some threads on here I'm realising that a lot of 'survival' stuff I've read or watched is just memes. Do you guys have any suggestions for books or websites where I can learn real knowledge about the outdoors?
>>664698 Exactly what I mean when I say I'm realizing all I've seen/read is just meme bullshit, I want to learn about something useful and that I can use rather than stuff that I might need if I'm the only survior of a plane crash in the Andes
Sleeping pad ? That a new thing that hippies use on the PCT ? If a wool blanket or tarp wont work. Stay home or at the hotel. Leave the woods for hikers. In scandavia you would get your ass kicked for suggesting such shit,.
Can we get a tipping thread going? I never know how much to tip. I went flyfishing with a guide this fall and at the end of three days I just gave they guy a 50. I had paid the fees to the flyshop in advance and they really did not say anything about tips. I got the feeling the guide was a bit disappointed.
This week I dropped of two snowboards and some skis to get tuned up. I pick them up tomorrow and have no idea if I am even expected to tip at all.
Grettings /out/, I am a 4chaner but a rare visitor to your thread But I figure what the hell we all are all family and you might as well help me, so I come to you with this: I own a leather(buffalo) flying jacket for more than 8 years and I am in love with it Problem is it has started cracking How do I take care of my second skin? Wax it? Smear fat on it? I know how to take care of my leather shoes, is it the same procedure? Pic somewhat related
>>664603 /out/ is a slow board, especially during US nighttime. For jackets, it's best to use leather milk/creme since regular grease is a bit rough (esp. on thin leathers.) Waxes and polishes are strictly prohibited. Proper care of a leather jacket is done in the summer so it hasn't seen rain for sometime. One to two months of complete dryness is recommended - any moisture absorbed by the leather will be trapped inside by the grease and can turbofuck your garment. If it's started cracking already and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I do have a wedge but I don't carry it with me. I've never really needed to split wood outside of home use. I can see where it would be a good carry while /out/ if you know you're going to need a lot of lumber for fires. Mine always gives me great uniform splits, and you can use absolutely anything to drive it. Never let me down once. Tip: its best to leave it dull , that way the split goes with the grain. I have seen people sharpen their splitting wedge, but this allows the wedge to cut its own path and you end up working against the grain of the wood creating... Comment too long.

Ampco Safety Tools flange wedge Nonsparking, Corrosion Resistant, Beryllium free 2.1 Ounces $10.21 on Amazon I give it five stars, works great. Though I don't end up needing it much... when i do its a life-saver. Is wedge-ing really a thing?
pic related, from amazon.. sorry I don't have pictures of my wedge just floating around.
I have this cheap pup tent thats served me well for 2 years now, super light, compact and easy to put up. Looking for a higher quality version of this pup tent that doesn't weight a shit ton but can only find surplus stuff on ebay.
The highest quality tent you can get is a used coleman off craigslist. These fucking idiots think you should buy an expensive tent are idiots man! Most of the time I just use this tarp I got from harbor freight and since I never needed anything else these faggots who are sitting iside on facebook sure as hell dont/
>>664404 There are a million choices. Honesltly, I would grab a decent rod+reel combo first. If you spend ~$75 (USD, so probably like $3000 CAD) you won't get a piece of trash.
And then I would say just get a cheap starter kit from Berkley or whoever. A plastic tackle box that will come with a few assorted hooks, bobbers, and maybe a couple lures. Then start fishing at your local lakes, see what is biting and ask what other people are fishing with, and you can start adding lures. Stocking a tackle box can get expensive... Comment too long.

you may be a dumbass, but youre my kind of dumbass.
ask around for what people catch, whats in your rivers & lakes. start there. you may only need a treble hook & some worms, you may need some flashy flies. depends on what you can catch & what theyre used to. but the previous advice is pretty solid.
also, no on the waders until youve done it for a while & know youll keep doing it. start from the bottom.
Is it gay if me and my friend ride a tandem bike together to uni? We dont have enough money to buy two seperate bike and it'll help us bond more. We're both not gay, however we both dont have girlfriends but we arnt gay.
