Earlier this year, I got more serious about organizing my prepping, as it's starting to make up a serious portion of my total possession. I should also preface this with the fact that I'm going to be moving from a small community to an apartment in a huge city.
I have been using a standard size of totes for keeping my supplies in, and purchased the 7 I was missing to fill out my bed frame in pic. This will enable me to keep all of my supplies with me, as opposed to being across town in a storage unit, which is at risk for being broken into.

4 are currently full of mountain house freeze dried meals
1 has misc condiments, salt, 30lbs of honey, hoards of tea, 4 tins of pepper, seasoning packets (for beans and rice)
Not shown for food is 5x 5 gallon food safe buckets, 2 with jasmine rice, 1 with garbanzo beans, one with mixed beans, and one that's half white rice, half black beans. The contents are in mylar bags with moisture absorbers, and in the locking buckets.
1 is full of 500 rounds of shotgun shells, 2000 rounds for my rifle, 1000 batteries, about 20 fuel canisters, maps, and other... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Final product works great. Weight distribution is very solid with the slats on top, and can take direct pressure of standing on any point of the mattress without so much as a sound of shifting.
I have an oversized black blanket that Im going to drape between the mattress and slats, to cover what's actually underneath my bed. That's mostly just to keep friends/family/any visitors from asking what's in them, and I don't like wearing my tinfoil hat publicly.
Hey there anon! 1) That technique is called caning and should really only be done with a fixed blade knife(those are the kind that don't fold, thus the name)
2) Personally would use a knife witg a full tang handle(that is when the metal from the knife blade extendes to the handle in piece)
3) It doesn't require much in the way of blade skill though it can be tough on the blade. You're essentially using the knife in substitute of an ax(the stick in the picture shown is helping push the knife through that piece of unsplit wood) Which, in some... Comment too long.

Yep. I smoke a pipe innawoods. Generally I just bring an old beater pipe, a pouch of tobacco, a czech tool and some matches and I'm set.
Assuming you've never smoked a pipe before, get a corncob to start because in all likelihood you will ruin your first pipe, so hold off on buying a nice one until you learn how to smoke properly/decide it's for you. Watch some youtube videos and the like to learn how, and feel free to ask your local tobacconist or any of your pipe smoker friends any questions.
Suggestions for tobacco I have for starting out are... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Both me and my wife have nice (light) bikes My 10 y.o. son has one that is not so nice (kind of heavy, not so good brakes, bought a while ago for 10$ at a yard sale) Recently we started biking more and more (cooler weather) and: 1: it's hard for him to bike for more than a few miles 2: it's scary to go fast (brakes are really hard to apply (at least for him)) 3: it's hard for me to put the bike on the bike rack and then take it off (it's heavy as fuck, like 50 lbs or so)
Can you recommend anything: 1: relatively light 2: under... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>857302 I once put a motorcycle rear rotor and caliper (two piston) on the front tire of a bicycle... Stopped wayyy too good.
But assuming your not that extremely diy.. Best go with a super light frame and nice road tires to start out with.. Rim brakes are good for little kids (tho you should teach him to stuff his foot into his front tire to stop...)
Light frame, good road tires... And consider he cant keep up because hes got like 1/16th the potential energy then u or your wife...
I worked there on my first field job. That place is fucking unreal beautiful in fall. It was mostly pretty quiet. Lots and lots and lots of forest out there though. At least where I was close to lake superior.
And I happen to agree that the Federal government owns too much land and generally oversteps the authority afforded to it by the Constitution, but occupying a wildlife refuge and spouting complete batshit gibberish conspiracy is not the way to advance that cause.
>inb4 /out/ gets mad their welfare land be taken away
>>857024 At least Fry should. I listened to his YouTube broadcasts and he was definitely paranoid and delusional, and not in a "oh they just don't agree with me" sort of way. He reminded me a lot of a schizophrenic room mate I had and the scary shit he would say.
>>856726 I myself bash/twist whatever shape I want. Some are plain old spoons just painted some are twisted. Depends on the type of bait I am trying to fake. I found a slightly twisted bright yellow with red/blue mix works great. Different anon by the way
Hey /out/. /k/ informed me that my question was better suited here.
How do you/ prepare for operating innadessert? I'm going to be operating innadessert alone for the first time this weekend. I know it can be fairly dangerous and I was looking for some advice. What kind of firepower should i bring? How much food and water should a bring? What kind of gear will i need? Are there any safety precautions i should know?
Thanks for your advice /out/. Pic related is the Dessert. I plan on tearing through it all at once this weekend.
>>856621 >What kind of firepower should i bring? A decent knife. And by knife I mean a good pocket knife or at most a small fixed blade not some big ass tacticool wannabe combat knife.
>How much food and water should a bring? Depends on what you will be doing and how long you're going to be out. Personally I usually go through around 3-4 liters a day when hiking in the desert. Depending on what food you plan on eating you may need more for cooking.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How did fur trappers and other men that lived alone in the wilderness build their cabins? I mean I get how, but these guys were alone, how were they moving such big logs by themselves? Were they just really strong? My great grandfather was a fur trapper and while he was an extraordinarily strong man it still doesn't seem feasible that they did it by themselves.
You have to remember it was a way of life for these people to build stuff and work their asses off. They grew up building houses like this and they used their horses to help move the logs instead of their pals. Big hunks of dried pine also aren't that heavy.
Okay to start things off, I know that this is crazy. I'm 21 years and next year I want to bike across Canada to raise money for cancer. I want to start from the farthest point east and end in the furthest point west. I plan on starting my trip around the end of April or beginning of May. I don't know anyone else that wants to do it so I figured I would look here.
bump I would love to join you but I live in the UK and am tied down due to various complications. Best of luck anon, it's an awesome thing you're doing, perhaps try asking on other outdoors/canadian/cancer trust websites and forums if you don't get a good enough response here. Do you have a route planned out and enough money to make this happen? I'd love to do this sort of thing one day
A mentally stable man would look at this picture and be interested in the girl. Meanwhile Skid is undressing the horse in his mind. Also notice the professional shooping skills by yours truly. That's why I'm a professional angler, not an artist.

So I was wondering, what normal sized cot (that can hold a 6' tall person) can collapse into the smallest shape? I'm asking because I was wondering how easy it would be to take a cot in a backpack with a relatively small backpack. As I'm sure you can tell, I don't know what I'm talking about cot-wise, so that's why I'd like someone's opinion here.
honestly op, get a decent rope hamac, these things are cheap as fuck and the rope can save your ass in a dire situation :) they fit everywhere! Carry a small tarp to put overhead and you have a waterproof shelter over ground level and its actually very confortable :D
>>855562 >I work a busy job (that I enjoy) Just from that statement I can tell you're in America, you're always 25 miles away from the perfect camping place, make sure to plan ahead, make a huge date out of going out, and try to do it every weekend.
I have a pond on my property that is full of water from autumn until june. Then it dried up. Im wondering if I dug down in the center I could hit some sort of water source and the pond would stay hydrated .. I guess my real question is how do ponds form and would this even work? theres no streams anywhere around the pond and its 100% naturally occurring
Water dries up because it evaporates and forms because there's a depression there. You would have to dig really far down to even hit the water table and it wouldn't just spring forth and keep your pond filled.
Theres a pond about every 1/4 mile in my area. Most were dug to water livestock in the old days. Some are fed by springs and are full year round, some are seasonal like yours. I have a small pond myself that fills up from water seeping out of the mountainside during the rainy season- but its been dry for months.
Its possible that you could hit an artesian well- that's a well that because of geology the water is pressurized and will come to the surface on its own once a pathway is drilled for it. Most likely though you would just get a normal well- water... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey there, not sure if this is the right board for this, but screw it. I am a casual preper and i`m having a hard time finding good quality survival equipment. Currently i`m looking for an emergency water filter. With so many different brands I have no clue which is better. Any suggestions to a good product or website would be a real help.
Dove season just started up in my state (PA), and I've already bagged a few. However, as someone who is fairly new to this type of wing shooting, I was wondering if anyone had some good tips/strategies. For example: >benefits of a sitting in a blind vs. working tree lines >best time of day to go out >decoy usefulness/placement >etc. Any input will be much appreciated.
>>854580 Yeah, you eat them (I haven't personally, but my father reminisces about eating dove all the time). Though mourning doves probably aren't the "cleanest" birds, you're probably thinking of pigeons (those rat doves you see in cities, different species)
>>854565 My best advice is to just go out and try it. Find some private ground if possible. I usually set out a couple mojo decoys and stay hidden in some tall grass or weeds next to a field of corn or milo stubble and wait for birds to show up. I prefer to hunt in the early morning and I'll typically be in my spot 30 minutes before sunrise. Evening hunts 2 or 3 hours before dark can be productive, but this time of year it can get pretty hot. I'm in Kansas though. It helps to hunt with a group of people to cover more... Comment too long.
