So /out/, I've just spent the last year working as a laborer in rural construction and have come to the conclusion that I'd rather off myself then work a desk job no matter how much money it made me. What kind of trades/skilled labor positions should I look into if I want to work outside with my hands?
>>663065 I landscape and live it. Mind you I live in BC so I can work pretty much all year. Well we take a couple weeks off around Christmas and January is really weather dependent. Personally I see the little bit of time off as a perk though
In my experience, millwright jobs are decent in terms of skilled trades. The outdoors kind of industrial millwrights aren't in demand right now though, with things in Alberta the way they are.
You already have construction experience though, so I suggest you become a construction millwright, the payrate is roughly 25-40/hr depending on experience and the contract. If you are gonna do it, try to become a dual ticket millwright/industrial electrician.
Any other ideas? My last set up was stanley adventure series and it never let me down. But I see a lot of people hailing the 40 oz bottle with cup and that would give me more storage for water filters and what not
The Bundy brothers have no intention of stewarding the land on Oregon or returning it to the original families. They intend to auction off the land in parcels and use the money to support Ammon's failing transportation company in Arizona.
I can't even carry a decent airgun to hunt for wild game, theres all these protected species (can't migratory birds like ducks). Theirs bears everywhere which you are not allowed to harm. 90% of Canada is wildlife yet you can't defend yourself without some kind of permit.
Am I just reading the laws wrong, I'm trying to bicycle across Canada but it seems its not possible without a huge budget and staying at motels.
>>662681 >Unless you hike where there are brown bears, there are no dangerous wild life in North America. Jesus fuck you're retarded.
>>662678 Make noise while you hike and camp, talk to yourself, sing along with music, have a small speaker you play your music through. Doesn't need to be deafening, just enough to let something know you're there. That's enough to keep most bears and such away unless you force them into... Comment too long.

>>662428 Start small, work your way up. Buy a full setup of whatever gear you can afford, but keep it minimalistic. Upgrade from there. There's good advice and gearouts listed in the bug out bag thread. Don't pack more than you need.
have any /out/doorsmen been confronted by a park ranger while illegally camping? I've recently moved universities and kinda want to go overnight camping with a fire etc... but i don't want to go to overcrowded tenting parks. what do?
>>662388 If you're in the US, go to a National Forest and camp outside established grounds. It's called dispersed camping and it's free. As long as there isn't drought conditions and/or you aren't above a certain altitude you can also have a fire.
I found a source for thermally reflective olefin, the same stuff that SOL makes their escape bivvys out of (great product), but the roll is much more material and more expensive than I want to get. I want to know if anyone would be interested in a group buy?
The material is rain proof, breathable, thermally reflective and very durable. I could make envelope style bivvys with this material on top and waterfroof polyethylene on the bottom for about $20 each. I already make a lot of my own gear, and this would be a pretty simple project. The temp rating and breatheability... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>662369 The bivvys would be about 2.25' x 6' with an overlap to shed water in lieu of a zipper to save on cost and carry weight. I need at least five people for the group buy. Total cost after shipping of the material to me and a finished bivvy to you would be around $25. I'm also planning on dyeing them OD green, but may be able to fill requests for other colors depending on how many people buy in/if you want to throw in a couple extra bucks for a special color.
no, they bivys would make a great wind breaker or water barrier, but they are worthless shit on their own. and the only practical use for them would be as a weight saver, if you could use them on their own, but you cant
ive been through SOL and all these shits.. the best one is the thermal tent made out of a tyvek-like material
it only requires an EVA foam mat roll to be placed at the bottom to prevent tearing, but that only sweetens the deal by providing insulation from the ground. they both are very light, much lighter than the most expensive backpacking tents,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
