I attempt to keep myself busy with a lot of reading while /out/ for a few days. Playing cards, bird watching, trail hiking... but I'd like to get some more original ideas on how to keep oneself preoccupied while out. None of that 'heard it a thousand times' drivel you can pull off Google. If you do something truly unique while /out/ to keep yourself entertained, I'd like to hear what it is.
Ive had my bonsai for about 3 weeks now and all its been doing is dropping leaves. It has dropped about 5 leaves. I have a ficus ginseng and it is kept in a south facing window for the majority of the day. There are also tiny leaf buds that look like they should be growing for more leaves but have remained stagnant. What should I do?
I'm a blacksmith, woodworker, outdoorsman, and I do HVAC for a living. I bought a Morakniv the other day on a whim, and i'm using it for work (because it was like $10 and I don't care if I screw it up).
If you guys are interested, I'll let you guys know how it holds up to actually getting fuck beaten out of it. I figure it'll be ammunition to finally prove or disprove the "morakniv is god" thing.
When you're snowed in, stuck in a city or just can't make it to the trail, does /out/ play vidya? What game do you consider to be the most /out/ and best simulates them comfy woodsy feels when you can't make it to the trail? My personal vote goes to Firewatch for just being a laid back hiking simulator.
However, right now I'm playing pic related and fuck it makes me wish there weren't torrential rains in my area right now. >crafting hunting tools from scratch >Lara can just live innawoods... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Growing up I used to love playing Cabela hunting games, but they're all trash now. Thinking of buying a PS2 to play the old good ones where it was also about survival. You had hunger, thirst, weight limit to what you could carry, etc. It was a fun game.
Now a days, the only video games I really play are mobile games while taking a shit. I haven't owned a console since the original Xbox, and hardly played PC games besides Counter Strike. I bought Arma 3, Day Z, and other games in the likes, but most of the servers are full of ignorant kids that what to role... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How can I get a house (even to rent) with a cozy fireplace? I'm poor and I probably always will be because I'm disabled. I'm tired of living in my apartment. It's like an ant hive. I want to live in the country with a fireplace and a pond and gardens and stuff. How do I poorcozy?
>>875054 Buy cheap land in a flyover state. Put a cheap house on it, if there's none already. Spend most of the money on installing a really nice fireplace. Just make sure the property has access to good drinking water.
hi i really want to try a decent torch. i got the stick.2-3 cotton t-shirts.nails for sticking shirt to stick i just need somekind of oil.animal fat is out of question.it's too long to cook and get ready.i don't have any alcohol or lamp oil either. should i make it with frying oil?or use gas?
So I've been having this issue where I wake up in my tent very unrested and with my neck and shoulders in a lot of pain. I thought powering through it was a good idea, but It makes camping more a couple days a chore, instead of relaxing.
tl;dr why is sleeping so uncomfy and how do I fix?
eh, I just have cherson x10, its a blast inside the house but outside the wind messes with it too much. I would like to get a beast one to follow me skiing or whatever like that fuckwit Casey on youtube.. he's video quality is epic and yes I am jelly.
I'm a Canadian interested in going to the US this December (say from the 25th to January 5th) to possiblity hunt whitetail/boar/roe deer with my wife.
- How does Crossbow hunting work for Virginia/Kentucky or nearby states? I saw that most allow it till January 15th
- Being a poorfag, how can I get in contact with someone who owns land so I can rent it for a week? I'll bring my own gear and a camper, I just need a place to do it. Outfitters might be too expensive, I'm seeing 1k for 2 people ...
- Can I use public land and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>872701 Well, I'm in Georgia. >most state public land hunts are by lottery/raffle. But they also work by a point system, so if you don't get picked this year, you skip ahead of people next year, until you're eventually guaranteed a slot after a couple years if you don't get picked. >there are restrictions on using rifle during bow season, but bows can be used during rifle season. >Canadian/out of state tags are expensive.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>872724 Oh ya. Whitetail deer are a precious commodity. Wild boar are a nuiscence. No bag limit, no age/gender restrictions, open season all year long. You might even find a farmer that will pay you to kill them.
A friend who works forestry was invited on a hunt next spring. Free cabin, all we have to do is bring guns, ammo and food.
Anyone know where I should look here in nz for a pack like op's/maxpedition? Looking for a comfy, durable, earthtone pack in the 20-35L range with attachment point galore ideally. Everything seems to be larger and geared towards hiking (what I have now) or those neon daypack backpack types.
>>866040 >Whats a good budget for babbys first bow? You can get a Samick Polaris or Sage for less than $150 and both will work pretty will.
>Im a strong guy so i could handle a relatively high pull strength Bows use different muscles (And in a different way) than most people usually use their muscles. Don't think that just because you're strong, using a bow isn't going to feel awkward as fuck at first. Generall, something with a 30/35 lb.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I want to start doing it since I'll be heading to a region with obsidian deposits, and I want to fletch myself a bow and arrows from scratch. I've seen most youtubers use copper tools, but is it possible to use stone only to make fine knapping with?
>>875525 Of course it's possible. I would imagine it's mostly for convenience, as you can standardize and shape your tools in a way that maximizes your efficiency, but we used to do it when we could barely be considered people.
>>875564 Protip: During the winter before deer shed their antlers, find a small cluster of small trees growing closely together. Place a mineral or salt block in the middle. As the bucks stick their heads in to get to the salt, their antlers will rub the trees and become loose. If you're lucky, you might be able to find a few good sheds around the base of the trees.
So /out/, assuming you had the good ol' 3 layers (base, mid, outer) and enough skill to make a raised sleeping platform and safe fire, what's the coldest temperature you could reasonably stay the night in and still want to do it again?
>>875284 contex; did my first solo overnighter up in the mountains here in NZ last month, sleeping setup was pic related, camped right on the lake which was a mistake (gonna go somewhere wind-free and higher above the valley this time), think I got a couple hours sleep but insides hurt in the morning and felt drained so went home, which I'd like to avoid. Really into my light pack weight tho thus the want of ideally no sleeping related gear, is it doable outside winter with a fire, warm clothes and insulation from the ground?
>>875288 >is it doable outside winter with a fire, warm clothes and insulation from the ground? Yes. You may also want insulation from the wind. If your tarp is open on the side facing the fire, a Mylar blanket at a 45° angle behind you (opposite the fire) is awesome for bouncing the heat back at you. Plus they pack small and weigh almost nothing.
>>875293 not taking the tarp this time, plan is to make a lean-to,raised bed with pad on top (inflatable sleeping pad is the one sleeping item i'm holding onto), fire and then a reflector wall if i have time, unless the environment presents a better option
Sustainability. Know how to farm various vegetables and their seasons. Know how to hunt fish, clean, and cook various animals. Know how to build shelters. Know how to start fires using various tools. Know how to cover your tracks. People who spend money on SHTF marketed gear are faggot niggers.
Had a strange experience with some bears out in the adirondacks this past weekend. Wondering if anyone has a good explanation.
Gf and I did an overnight in the pharaoh lake wilderness in the eastern dacks. We set up camp near the lake in a designated primitive tent site and followed all the rules for bear country: cooked more than 100ft from tent, hung all food, pots, and toiletries in a bear hang, finished cooking before dark, etc. We were in the tent by 21:30 and were silent by 22:00. About twenty minutes later, I heard a bear grunt that seemed to be about 30ft away.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>874461 Pic related? Black bear? Blackies I don't really worry about them. Try not to get spooked. If the weather's good I just sleep with my cot, sleeping bag, and a pistol by the fire. I woke up once to dead branches on the ground snapping and him slurping from the pond near by. Woke me up, knew what that it was him. Got a glimpse but just put my pistol over my cheast and went back to sleep. He carried on. Most of the time op, they really don't give a fucking shit if the whole forest hears them. Their not that...

Is Sedona really that good or is it just a meme? I feel like hippies talk it up so much because of muh power crystals and ayylmaos. I've never been but as far as I can tell it's really like most other places, just the rocks are a little redder.
Still waiting on anons to help me with the Pastebin. If anybody is really familiar with and wants to write a short intro guide and equipment list for pier fishing, surf fishing, fly fishing, river/stream fishing, etc. send it to me at GetSomeMemes at gmail dot com and I will post it on the Pastebin. All I have on there so far is an intro to lake and pond shore fishing and I think memecaster... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So i have been wanting to train hope for about a year now and have done Various amounts of research.I get the premise of you need to be near a train yard and understand which trains to hop on which are not the oil tankers or anything like that. I get that you have to be able to survive for hours and hours of being on the train and then camp out in the woods to try to catch a train back or go to the closest town . I understand a lot about it now but I promised myself that I would never do it until I talked to somebody who has done it before. So I was wondering if you guys have... Comment too long.

>>873540 People like OP don't even go outside. They just find out what meme is on a board and constantly repost it. Like the no coiner shitposts on /biz/ or the morning wagecuck posts on /r9k/ or why do I need a car when public transit on /o/. They should be reported and banned but mods are fags.
