Fuck traffic. Just trying to enjoy my Saturday afternoon fishin for an hour or two before it gets dark and they decide to completely shut down the highway because of a fuel truck on fire. Ended up getting delayed close to 2 hours after standing around in the 595 parking lot and only got half an hour of casting before it got dark.

Circumstances now warrant that I live out of my truck, but the money that was once spent on rent is now available for equipment.
In addition to miscellaneous military surplus clothing, I have a Canada Goose Snow Mantra, CG Tundra Overalls, and Baffin Apex boots. I'm particularly concerned about the extremities (hands and feet) since they are most likely to succumb to frostbite, so any suggestions for boots and gloves would be helpful.
I posted a while back here about that I'm going on a world journey, starting with a year in Asia. Last time I asked about gear and such, and now I've gotten that figured out, so let's talk about emotions.
I've been living a very normal life up until now. Work, study, friends, all that, and I'm basically giving it up for freedom. This will be quite the change for me, and I'm still not sure how I will hope up to it.
Since it's worthless to break down out in the middle of nowhere in a country where no one speaks your language, what's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Newfag here, really nice board btw, I was wondering what are you guys' everyday outfit as /out/ers. Outside my hiking outfit, which is pretty forest-colored, my everyday clothes are really different as there are urban colored.. and god damn are grey and blue depressing colors !
So what is your everyday outfit ? do you have specific brands or site that provides forest/rural looks ? and what is your view on modern urban looks ?
I'm in the early stages of planning a canoe/trekking trip around the Casamance river. I've never done serious stuff in the tropics before; just day hikes in Hawaii. So I'm looking for practical tips from people who are used to the tropics -- any unexpected difficulties you may have run into? I don't really know what questions to ask, but here are a few: -What kind of pants would you recommend? I don't know what kind of performance to expect of my trousers. -Footwear? I feel like I should wear something quick-dry that I can swim in in case my... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've got a 2 lb hatchet and the handle grain is horizontal and starting to split. It feels a little small for two hands but it's really fatiguing to use with one. What would be a good length to make a new handle?
Since Western North Carolina is pretty popular for outdoorspeople I thought I'd ask here:
I'm cheap, and my friend came in from Boston to do some hiking and see Grandfather Mountain. We did Mt. Mitchell last year. I looked on the website to make sure Grandfather Mountain was open, and tickets to drive up are $20 a person. I didn't really want to drive up anyway, and it looks like we can hike up for free.
For anybody who has done so, do you know if you can still get to the bridge if you hiked in rather than buying a ticket at the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Area has tons of great trails with great views. Look around at Linville Falls has tons of great trails. Go up on the Blue Ridge Park way and you find trail after trail. Price Lake has a nice little loop around it that I recommend.
If you go up on the AT by Bradley Gap it has amazing views and they have long horn cattle herd in the area you can go check out.
Grandfather Mountain can be cool but it's touristy as fuck. With so many great trails around you have no reason to go if your just looking for great views and hiking
>>904272 Am i? Isnt the whole shit getting back to the primitive ape shit level? Using axe when you have chainsaw? Using mirror to signal someone when you have a fucking ak47? You nation is dying. Prepping for nuke is not gonna save you! Only thing you can do is buy island. Get animals for farm and start planting shit. Live independent away from any possible threat area. Or fuck it because life is not worth it walhalla awaits us
>>904265 growing lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, and beets doesn't require a technical degree in botanics. just go to a local book store and look for books on effective backyard gardens. try it out a few times before you settle yourself "ready" for if or when SHTF.
Hey /out/ I have a problem with trespassers. My grandparents own 120 acres, half or so is farm field, house, barn, grainery, etc which is the portion that can be seen from the road. The rest is all woodland and the neighbors trespass CONSTANTLY. It's a pretty rural area so we dont have tons of neighbors but they often have lots of people over and tell them it's okay to go on our property. Another problem is nobody lives there constantly so it's easy for the neighbors to tell nobody is there when there's no cars out in front of the house. This also makes it... Comment too long.

>>904166 Also I should add we do alot of shooting and it's happened at least once where someone trespassing almost got shot because they were in the area where alot of our bullets land after passing through our targets
>>904166 Only thing you can do is catch them in the act with trail cams or something and take them to court. Downside is they'll hate you for it. Perhaps offer peace and just ask that they ask for permission when they use your property and tell them not to damage anything or shoot/hunt on it without your permission. Hopefully you haven't already gotten combative with them. It's a lot easier to get what you want when you have a friendly relationship with someone.
As long as they stop stealing and damaging... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Any weird experiences for the rest of you guys? I live up in northern Washington, and I get weird stuff happening at least 40% of the time that I'm innawoods. Been hunting and fishing my entire life and my backyard is the forest. Lucky that nothing has been aggressive towards me though.

I'm something of a sheriff in my little town of Nowhere, Kentucky. Had a woman freaking out about BF a while back. She used to report a lot of stuff being stolen and animals turning up dead. Said she saw it once on the road and that's when I figured I'd look into it.
The area she reported the BF entering on the right side of the road corresponded to a graveled pull-off that had been there for decades and was used to access the lakeshore by people fishing. It had also become something of an unsightly and smelly dump for trash, brush and tree limbs/deadfall... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>904130 I arrived back at the sighting area at about 7:30 AM the next day after her call after waking up to what seemed to be the foggiest morning in county history. The lake itself was socked in and not visible at all from the bluff and trail and there was heavy fog and condensation all through. My intention was to just head down the path and quickly collect the cam I set up last time from the tree and head out, so I left the car unlocked and ready to depart. I retrieved the cam and noted it had been tripped three or four times and was anxious to get a look at any pics so I headed straight back up the bluff and heard something pacing me in a large gully about 40 feet to the left. I wasn’t concerned as I’d encountered nothing there at any previous visits, and I also began to dimly hear a nearby conversation between at least 2 men who I believe were on a boat on the lake. I stopped about halfway up the trail and the noises of movement briefly did so as well, then seemed to move off further towards the left in the direction of the voices I heard. I got to the top of the turn-around and didn’t hear any more movement, so I began to put the camera away in the back of the car, a Honda Element with a rear hatch. When I stepped back to shut the hatch, I noted a strong smell that reminded me of a wet dog, but when I stepped back towards the car, just a foot or so, it was hardly detectable. There was a breeze coming from my right at his point and when I stepped back again and shut the rear gate I turned to the right and saw a figure immediately stand straight up about 80 feet away in the treeline by the bridge.

Gear and shit is great but I would like to see some discussion on here as well.
The natural place to start for such a discussion is wilderness. It is a term we all throw around quite a bit, but humans have been manipulating landscapes for millennia, making a strict definition of wilderness very difficult to pin down.
So /out/ how do you define wilderness? Do you think wilderness is a useful term for describing nature?
Over the week of Christmas, a friend and I are planning to backpack in RMNP. This will be my first time winter backpacking in mountains other than the Apps, so I was wondering:
1. What is the best route to take in RMNP for 3-4 days of winter backpacking? We would like to summit at least one mountain. 2. How quickly should we expect to move while snowshoeing (another first for us)? We are both in our 20's, fit, and average 2 mph on trails out east during the other three seasons. 3. Does RMNP have shelters on the trails, or do we need to pack tents? We normally... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>903077 Hell yeah. You don't have to buy a bunch of overpriced Mountain Memehouse. Look for those Knorr pasta dishes. Also the cheap bags of garlic or cheesy mashed potatoes. Or Ramen. You just add boiling water to any of those.
Aside from that, trail mix and candy and whatever protein or granola bars you like. I could hook it up with some Gatorade bars lel.
Ask the other people on the trip what food and what cooking shit they are bringing.
Hey guys, I've saved up some money and am keeping my eyes peeling to have a place to call my own. The truth is, even if only for a few years, I'd rather have a small homestead to call my own than a big place owned by the bank (I'm a general contractor, so I'm familiar with construction and whatnot). My only issue is the legality of this. I do not want to invest my money into an acre of land, build a small place over the spring and summer, and find myself encountering legal issues down the road. I've had a tough time using Google, and I'd just like... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>902331 I would think running with your dick out would damage your dick.
I regularly shower outdoors, and swim naked, but that is mostly showing my junk to woodland creatures. Also I a mountain goat was once staring at me while I had a quick tug hiking through the Gallatins.
