Fucking Alan is so based. I'm glad he won. He seems like the kind of guy you'd want to share several beers with. I'm surprised Sam lasted that long, he really became a man out there.

I was going to get one of their jungle blankets and then I read they're too short. I was going to get one of their jungle bags and then I read some reviews of guys over 6' saying they're too short. I guess they call it snugpak for a reason...
I've never really climbed before but I've absailed a few of them shit walls at climbing centres and stuff.
Anyway. I need to get a geocache that under a bridge over a river (it's a little pot that magnetic and stuck under) there seems to be two schools of thought on this one. Canoe and build a human pyramid, or rapelling off the bridge and pulling yourself under.
I'm opting for the rapel method.
So I'm using a setup like the one featured and I was testing it in my garden on a tree... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>852858 Climbing rope tends to be a bit stiffer than shitty camping rope due to the way it's designed. The extra stiffness provides a tiny bit of extra resistance when sliding through a rappel device. I'm doubtful that this is really the deciding factor here though. More likely you've just underestimated the amount you need to pull down when locking off. That said, get actual climbing rope when you do this.
>>852796 >What that? Should eat? I'm just going to start replying in the affirmative every time I see one of these threads. There are threads for identification of edible things already up, check the catalog and use those instead of making a new thread every time you have a question. Board culture, learn it.
What online mapping tools does /out/ use? I usually use Mapometer to plan routes and save them. For general map work I usually use Open Street Map (which I have an app on my phone which allows you to save areas for offline) I also use Ordinance Survey maps by going through Walk4life. Does anyone use any other software or websites and any recommendations?
Uh oh, forgot links! Mapometer: http://gb.mapometer.com/ Open Street Map: https://www.openstreetmap.org/ (I also use Open Cycle Map for finding cycle routes): http://www.opencyclemap.org/ Walk4life (for free OS maps): http://www.walk4life.info/find-a-walk
I use map marker to mark down cool locations i want to remember. I dont use trails so i dont use a trail mapper. I work at a state library and have access to our rare book and map room and sometimes find old mining and logging camps to explore
This little thing popped up of one of my flower pots earlier this summer, so I transplanted it to a bigger pot and now it is almost a tree. My question is if anyone here know what kind of tree or plant it is?
If the little whitish things on the leaves are little dusty specks rather than hairs its some kind of lambs quarter. Lambs quarter has been grown as a food for a long time though not so much these days. Tastes kinda like spinach (use/cook it the same way) and is very good for you.
It the leaves are hairy don't eat it. Don't know what it is but i know to leave it alone.
It looks like part of the Russula family. Where did you pick it? What type of forest? If it was near a beech tree, really don't eat it. If you are in north america and it wasn't near a beech tree it is probably Russula rugulosa, which is edible. You shouldn't eat it though.
If you live near the coast you can probably rent some different kayaks to get an idea of what you want before you buy. Also some marine shops have tryout days so you can demo various different boats. That's better than getting advice on the internets, since we don't know the local water conditions and the kind of stuff you intend to do.
Flatwater paddling is really easy to get started, just look up some basic paddle strokes on youtube. Whitewater and surf can make it pretty tricky.

so basically I am planning to bike from Miami to Seattle and live off the land while doing so. I mean like biking during the day and camping out at night.
>no hotels >no hot showers >no help from friends or family
I am taking all advice and opinions on how I should prepare, and what I should expect.
I know this sounds like a crazy idea but its honestly something I've wanted to do since I was a kid. I feel that I've lost touch with a lot and I don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
1. Learn to farm, learn what grows there and how to can food. I myself can alot of food because I have alot of fruit trees and apple sauce is THE FUCKING SHIT 2. Learn how to either hunt, trap or raise animals. I'd go with hunting and raising animals. 3. Learn how to build/maintain a house as well as how to use tools. 4. Learn to somehow earn a living (I'd suggest selling some animals for profits). 5. Rinse and repeat.
I was out looking for wild ginseng for my first time today. My knowledge of it really only comes from the internet. I found a lot of plants that looked like very young ginseng, but I didn't want to uproot them because it's against the law in my state to pick plants with less than three prongs. I spotted a few of pic related. It closely resembles what a cluster of ginseng berries looks like. I pulled one up and it had a little round root, but it didn't look too much like a ginseng root. Does anyone know what I found? This is in Wisconsin. Input from anyone here... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
No fap, I just tend to fuck my wife while /out/ she talks about that when we do have kids, that she wants me to take her while we're /out/. Wants me to chase her down and just have my way with her, she can scream and be as loud as she wants.

>>845812 RVs are not really made to be lived in full time. Furnishings, plumbing, electrical systems are made to be cheap and lightweight and only occasionly used and you will have a lot of maintenace issues.
RVs are especially bad about collecting moisture inside and growing mold.
Practically and cheap, you want to build/convert your own RV.
If you want to live in one full time I would do some research or at least get an all-metal RV.
Or buy a cheap used one and just be ready to play handy-man and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
is the survival slingshot a meme? what does /out/ know about slingshots? looking for something potentially lethal and top notch reliable. feel like slingshots are severely underestimated as ammo can be made of anything and could easy incapacitate a villain if need be. figure could be a good companion tool.
favourite place is probably the temperate rainforests of the lake district or the sussex hills.
they're cosy, the weather is almost always cold and wet which i like, and theres lots of game for hunting, and lots of plants to forage. theres a few places off trail that i tresspass to and nobody has bothered me yet, plenty of deer to stalk and wood on the ground. i've only been to the lake district once but dam the forests are beautiful. moss everywhere.
if you're lucky you can find old decaying ruins of farmhouses.
