I know this isnt really innawoods but this was the closest board I could think of.
I'm looking for industrial buildings that are good for urban exploring in Portland. Failing that, I just wan't an industrial area that is a bit dingy. I'm doing this for a camera shoot with a friend of mine and I want it to look cold and lonely. Thank you.
>>847854 per person per man? wtf is this? And if i follow your equation, with 3l per degree over 25°C per day i would need to drink 15l of water when it's 30°C which isn't even that hot, or 45l when it's 40°C which i think isn't even remotely possible to drink in a day, that's like half of a big dude's body weight...
I was recently looking into buying a pair of boots that will last years of 3 season abuse. Lots of rough terrain, primarily rocks and forestry. I came across an article of some dude saying that he swapped his hiking boots for straight up tennis shoes. Is he retarded or is he onto something? http://www.cleverhiker.com/blog/ditch-boots
>>847632 Over the course of 40+ years I've found that sneakers feel better and walk better than boots. The only times I've twisted my ankle was when I was wearing boots (couldn't walk on it for an entire month, fucking sucked). The only times I had to wear boots was when I needed steel toes and steel plates in the soles for safety reasons. Other than that, boots have not once helped me more than ordinary sneakers. Boots give me more blisters though, seemingly due to the fact they are not as pliable as sneakers.
I moved to New Hampshire earlier in the summer and planned on doing hikes non-stop until classes started up again but nigger this fucking heat. I went on literally one good hike ALL summer because I can't step outside without sweating to death, dying of headaches, and getting eaten by these giant murder flies. Does this make me a failure? Can I repent in the fall when it's decent out? I was planning on joint the Darmouth Outing Club this fall too, comes with a lot of perks.
>>846962 Nigger it's overd 90 not counting the humidity. I used to live by the ocean where it was temperate most of the time but living in fucking ozone valley here is hell. I swear to god when you get 20 min away in any direction it drops ten degrees.
I went at the Calvaire d'Oka last week. It's alright. Easy stuff. You can always hit Chemin d'Olmstead on Mont-Royal, right in the center of the city. Pretty close to the city you can find monteregian hills standing in the middle of the St-Lawrent plains. The mountains are a chain of ancient lava reservoir that never exploded and cooled down over a hundred million years. When the glaciers melted, all the sediments was washed away and the hard rock stayed there.
If you go north, you can find taller mountains on the Canadian Shield. You can also find mountains... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Hmm. I've been to Mont Royal Park a few times, but I've went there in depth.

What kind of pack do you have /out/? Personally I have an osprey atmos ag 65 liter. Since I do longer distance hikes I carry Food for 9 days Medical kit Sleeping bag Eno with straps Tarp and 1000 nylon cord Sawyer water filter Flint and steel Cooking supplies Two pairs of clothes Survival guide Solar charger Water purification tablets Ka-Bar Multi tool And a few other supplies, how about you guys?

I live in America and want to squat on some undeveloped land. Not in a tent though, I would build my own cabin. What are the best states to do this in, and what should I know. What are things you guys wish you knew before you became a squatter?
Thanks in advance
>inb4 their a homeless general. Living in the deep woods is a lot different then the streets.
>>846605 >undeveloped land So private property? >build my own cabin You ever built a cabin? Do you have the knowledge, tools and resources to do so? >not in a tent Where do you plan on staying while your cabin is being built?
I've been thinking of doing this in Canada a lot lately. I'm just not feeling modern technological society on the whole. I'm happiest when I'm outdoors a lot. Here, we have crown lands, state owned tracts that aren't private, but aren't administered park land.
Would prefer to do it with someone else because it's a lot of work for one person. The upfront labour would be heavy. . . but rewarding.
for 1 or 2 people with few to no mosquitoes i love the sawyer mini, but this summer i took a trip with 4 people and lots of mosquitoes, and even with 2 sawyer minis we weren't flowing water fast enough to not be pissed.
They have some limitations. Lack of suitable trees for instance. Also, they aren't as warm as sleeping on the ground, so if it's cold out you'll need a lower rated sleeping bag, a pad, and maybe an under quilt.
>Solanum retroflexum have slightly fuzzy stems when compared to Solanum ptychanthum which has smooth hairless stems. Both are also referred to as Solanum nigrum and both are of course edible. A wide variety of various Solanum are labeled Solanum nigrum because they are so difficult to differentiate from each other.
Solanum nigrum isn't common in the USA either. So, where you are located in the world will also help determine if you have Solanum... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How do I find a job as an assistant farmer (or ranch hand, or whatever it's called?)
I currently work at a hospital and get no pleasure out of my job. I'm at the point where I simply don't give a shit about people and their problems. In my last two years of working here I was once tasked on emptying out a shed in a wooded area behind the hospital. It was filled with rat shit, an ants nest, rusty metal, and a cool little gecko bro that I caught and hung out with. It was the absolute best day of work I've had.
I don't have any farming experience,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Not so much a "job", but a farm around here will sign you up for their CSA in exchange for working something like 4 hours a week. Might be worth looking into if you're not certain if it's the job for you.
>>838087 I did this in arches, I hiked up courthouse wash, which is the largest part of the park that permits primitive camping (but you need a permit which I didn't have), then once I reached the end of the wash I was near the middle of the park. I hiked through the petrified dunes, which was probably the coolest place I've ever seen, and idk what the rules are regarding that. But it was really hard because I didn't wanna step on the cryptosoil like an asshole so I had to jump around alot. I camped another night... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>836961 >But for hiking they're going to be running 2 miles away looking for game.
Same for most game dogs. The ones that defend a home or are really tiny tend to hang around. Also the very smart breeds hang around. I've had a few beagle mutts, the instant they are in the woods they are yipping and barking, running around like they are trying to tie the biggest knot in the world (chasing rabbits) and end up 1-2 hills away. German Shepherds stay with me the entire time.
american labs are good for birds/retrieving. also good for companionship and hiking (I suppose. they can get pretty big, and long hikes can beat up joints). Not good for herding. Could work for guarding (not living with sheep like those big white guard dogs, but being on guard for the house and family, etc).
>>835922 its really good money. going engineer is smart. lots of land based options when you get tired of shipping out. i had a friend who was an officer. had a nice schedule of 2 months on 2 months off. really enjoyed it. then they died. but dont let that bother you. normal rotation is 3 on 3 off. could even go 4 on 4 off. the more time you go to sea for the more $ per day you can make. why not go to superior maine maritime academy? maine is a primo /out/ state any time of year.
>>833284 well. ive only just now with having bought a leatherman wave experiance serrated blades, its just. .. specialized i guess, is very marginally better at cutting rope and fabric, but it cant do what a perfectly normal blade can, now that waves serrated blade is only ground on one side so i cant get the full picture,
where you can put the most power behind a cut is the part of a blade where serrations are most commonly placed,
personally, since i dont skin much a blade with the serrations towards the tip... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
With power banks and solar chargers super affordable these days, this one seems gimmicky as shit. So I need to pack candles, and a little motor that's probably fairly fragile, and maybe a wind screen for the whole contraption (which also doesn't work when it's raining)
If you need more than a 20kmah power bank while /out/ for a week, you're doing it wrong.
The only reason I bring my phone/power bank us because I love quiet music when I make camp and sit by a fire. Especially if friends are with me.
>>849287 That is a very dumb ass plan, like full retard man. They spin fast because they ain't doing shit for work. A steam engine would work, but you'd have to scale it up to the point where it wouldn't be nearly as fucking portable. Even then it would be pretty fucking inefficient since you are doing three stages of conversion, each with energy loss. If you want to power your faggy ass faggot shit inawoods with something portable there are a few ways. Portable solar, hydro, or even human electric generators. I don't know how well they work, but they sure as shit will work better than that crap.
The season is approaching and it will be the first time working outdoors in the winter. I've got a basic knowledge of winter camping but what tricks and strategies do you employ to make your time in winter camping not suck
>>848877 >possible to climb down 10 stories if you're strong enough >cost fucking look up how much 10 stories worth of rope costs you mongoloid >how long would it take to get down less time than it would take if you jumped
