I want to go kayaking but the local kayakers make it sound very dangerous to go alone. Is a canoe safer or a kayak, also I saw some kayaks at Walmart for 300 dollars is would I be buying junk if I got that or are they fine for a beginner? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDuKW8EJWHw
>>657487 Where? Ocean? Lake? River? Whitewater? Warm or cold water? Kayaking alone isn't necessarily dangerous unless it's rough water or open ocean but you should know what to do if you tip.
>also I saw some kayaks at Walmart for 300 dollars is would I be buying junk if I got that or are they fine for a beginner? As long as it floats junk is better than no boat but you should have a look at used boats as well. Better not to spend too much on a first boat because you don't... Comment too long.

>>657487 I casually kayak on a calm lake every now and then. I bought a $250 kayak from Walmart, and it's served me well for about two years now, no leaks. It was a really good, cheap option that let me know whether or not I liked it. Stay far away from boats if you're going out on a popular lakes though, the wake can easily tip you over. Don't bring anything with you that you're not prepared to lose.
1. I like you use synthetic socks during the day. They dry out quicker 2. I like those Knorr sidekicks, and I usually mix in some meat and other vegetables. its a bit of a pain in the ass to clean the pot though 3.yes. usually just to take pictures, but i guess it could be used as a gps or even as backup flashlight. 4. ??? 5. in the creek
>>657281 This guy gets it. 90% of /out/ is actually getting off your ass and going and doing something. You don't need all Gucci shit at this point. A small backpack, a waterproof jacket, bottle of water and some snacks are about all you're going to need to get a taste for it and a dayhike locally there. If you're feeling brave, build yourself a popcan stove, and grab a tin mug from poundland and some 3-in-1 coffee, make a brew whilst you're out... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>657202 >. Why are they unanimously so cute? Skiing is expensive. Girls with rich dads get to go. Rich men marry pretty women and have pretty daughters. Rich people are more attractive than poor people
>>657202 It's because they're all covered up. From head to toe. Ever watch the winter x games and think "that snowboard chick is pretty hot?" Then you see her later on during an interview without the jacket, hat, goggles and think "damn, what the hell happened?!" True, some of them are cute but most of the time they only appear that way because you're only seeing part of their face.
How does a shut-in gamer like myself begin to learn the ways of /out/?
I'm tired of repeating the same process of school, vidya, eat like shit, gym, sleep. Want to get into hiking/camping. Any good sites/vids to better verse myself? Read most of the sticky now just need to find a starting point
Go for short walks at a local park as often as you can. Start planning longer hikes or day hikes and go from there. Camp sites or car camping could be a decent way to learn how to pitch camp, light a fire, etc. Looking up gear lists and that sort of thing helped me plan my first backpacking trip, but you certainly learn the most from your mistakes.
Sorry not in NY When off road drive in two wheel drive. If you have an issue then switch to four wheel. This is better then getting stuck in four wheel. Because you cannot switch to six wheel drive. And you will learn the limitations of your vehicle, But take a shovel, a chain, a come along with a weight rated for your vehicle and a high lift jack. Learn the difference between tires for snow and mud and tires for sand. If you try to drive through snow or mud with tires that have rounded shoulders then expect to be towed out. Learn how to winch your truck... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>657114 Am the post above you, you actually edc the rat1 its just too big for me I bought both the rat 2 and rat 1 at the same time and while I abuse the rat 2 daily the rat one has become a backpack /kit knife I don't use as often
I got a dehydrator for Christmas because I'll be hiking the Pacific Crest Trail this year. I'm planning on eating pemmican throughout the day so I won't have to stop and cook, and using the last bit of it in the evening as a meat and fat base for things like stew, chili mac and spaghetti. The thing is, everything I eat during these six months needs to rehydrate in a bag with just hot water, and can't already include any fats or oils (except the pemmican, which is separate). Preferably, I'd like to be able to make everything in the same bag, as opposed... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm a fan of the site. They have a lot of shit to dehydrate in it. I don't own a dehydrator, but I've made a few of their recipes. Easy on the trail, cheaper and better than those storebought backpacking meals
>>656976 You can dehydrate a ton of mushroom, veggies, and fruits. Then make all sorts of soups and stews. Add dough balls and make dumplings. You can make your own herbal teas too. You can dehydrate chicken, turkey, and fish.
>>656981 Thanks! I also got a book, written by the same guy, has all the same recipes and photos, as far as I can tell. It is definitely great info, I just wanted to see what else /out/ could come up with, since backpackingchef's recipe list is a little limited for what I want to do.
Let's say I walked to the Scottish Highlands and kept going North and staying generally to the far North of Scotland. No tent, too broke to even afford one. Only a medium backpack, clothes on my back, including waterproofs, gloves, a hat.
How would I survive without relying on civilisation? I assume there would be plenty of fresh water and scarce but hopefully sufficient for survival forageable food. My main concern would be shelter/ surviving weather.
Thoughts? Tips on food sources and shelter ideas for someone in that situation? Perhaps using natural landmarks... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The best foraging is trashcans. Also some bins have knives you can use to protect yourself. Sleep in McDonalds bathrooms or crawl into the attic. You will be fine m8. Live your dream. Allahu ackbar salamimylaykun
>>656992 Thanks. I've browsed 4chan frequently and infrequently since 2005, but this is my first post on /out/. I expected more hostility, it's warming to get a genuine reply. I'll keep your advice in mind, though I was considering more living in wooded areas and wilderness than a place with a lot of mcdonalds and trashcans.
Lets have a State/Province/Country (for you euros) thread. List two great things about your place, and then two bad ones.
>Minnesota Plenty of fishing all year round, you can basically walk 10 miles in any direction and hit a body of water. Storms are fantastic spring through summer, nothing like sitting on the porch listening to the tornado sirens while watching a twister rip up the landscape a few miles away.
Unfortunatly, all the rivers are polluted to hell and back, so things like swimming or eating fish you've caught... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
