Need some help finding a hiking pant. I own TNF paramount peak convertible pant. I like the weight of the material, convert ability, and layout of the pant. However, they are a little too baggy for me. I also own the Columbia silver Ridge pant, and they fit well but the material is just a little too thin.

Anyone know of a pant similar to the silver Ridge pant that's more durable? It needs to be in either natural colors or camouflage would be great. Gonna be using them as an early season mountain hunting pant. Not really looking for traditional hunting brands because...

I was bored and wanted to exercise a little to burn off Thanksgiving fatness so I grabbed my headlamp and went for a hike in the forest, when I got to the trail head it was almost dark. I walked for about 10 minutes and turned my headlamp on. There is so much creepy shit at night it's not even funny. Something huge was on the ground then flew up in the trees, we do have eagles where I live but what would it be doing on the ground at night. I shined my light where I thought it went and I didn't see anything. And you hear things like voices, I was on a trail that lead...

That looks like a decent enough sleeping bag though that's probably more to do with it being on sale. Don't know if Amazon takes black friday as seriously as other retailers but it looks like it from your pic.

Generally speaking, the differences are in weight, size when packed and what temperatures are comfortable. That one claims to be good down to 20 degrees armpit but I'd take that with a grain of salt.

No zombies, no nukes, just a blend of complex factors that made widescale society and large populations unsustainable.

Being set that far after the end, the only survivors are experienced with bushcraft and basically live in small communities or Innawoods. I'm going to focus the story on...

So I know the saying... carbon steel holds an edge longer. But why? When would I actually notice? Does it really make a difference? Is it that much of a difference that the extra risks of rust and pitting and all that are worth it?

What uses is carbon preferable and what uses is stainless preferable?
19 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.
>>
stainless steel has a number additives incorporated during the manufacturing process to make it stainless. These additives are geared towards that effect, and not towards making the steel stronger.
Additives to carbon steel are geared almost entirely to improving the edge retention.

there are hundreds of different types of carbon and stainless steels, so these are only general rules. You can still get great blade characteristics out of stainless, but you tend to pay more for it compared to a mid-ranged carbon. There are still plenty carbon steels, just as there are...

As a follow up:

get whatever kind of steel you prefer, but just remember that low price always means shit steel. Doesn't matter if it's carbon or if it's stainless; it's usually garbage pot metal if you get it cheap.

i have the same problem with my north face jacket. In contrast to more classic shaped hoods it overhangs over your forehead to stop rain dripping down your face, it does work but like you say it constricts vision a lot when the drawstrings need to be tightened if its windy. What helps for me is putting my wool beanie on under the hood, but of course in summer that's not the best solution either...
>>
Some hoods are designed to fit over a helmet, if you do not have a helmet to use the said jacket for. I find that using a hat and cinching it over that works. Also better brands tend to have a "halo" cinch that really helps.

If fishing you'll most likely want flat bottom/open top.
You could also take a look at Walmart, they got some cheap inflatable pontoon chair rafts that have motor mounts for a little gas/electric.

I was hiking along and noticed something flashing up on a hill. I was on a forest service trail and it looked like it was maybe 200 yards away. When I got up to it I started noticing more markers until I came across one that had writing on it. It's dated 7-4-80. So I started to wonder how much they had to pay this guy to work on the 4th of July. Couldn't it have waited until the holiday was over? The guy might still be alive and I want to find him and ask him why he did this.

How would out cope? I live in a rural farming community near a large river, so I feel my basic needs would be taken care of. But the other people scare the dogshit out of me. Can i reasonably go innadesert and just let my house and home burn?

Yeah if you lose electricity, the first thing to do is leave 95% of your possessions and play Rambo in the wilderness.

Drop of a hat "SHTF" is a morbid fetish among obese armchair survivalists who think they'd be king of the hill because they have a bugoutbag.
What is actually likely to happen in our lifetimes is gradual deterioration and division of society to the point of politicized paramilitary groups gaining prominence and perhaps civil war.
The lower the population density where you live the better. Knowing your neighbors and a nearby farmer is probably a good idea. And owning a firearm. The ability to produce and preserve some of your own food. Having a decent supply of non-perishable necessities. Especially potential bartergoods like medicine and ammo, should supplylines fail or prices skyrocket.

I'm looking at getting a rifle, a house with a garden + chickens and the option to heat by firewood, a couple of sacks of rice in the basement and the tools and skills required to live as comfortably as possible in a less stable, less affluent future.

I think everyone should strive for a frugal, wholesome, down to earth, somewhat selfsufficient/resilient lifestyle even in the best of times anyway.

No.

I just lost power a few days ago and that shit was scary!

Thought I had forgotten to pay my bill and started getting ready to bug out to my spot.

Trouble is my spot has no running water or fertile soil and I can't carry enough to remain self-sufficient for more than a few days before seeking water.

And I don't have a seed bank anyway.

But it is inna woods!
So th.. theres, um, wood.

So i may be a lil bit drunk, and also on painkillers from surgery, but are we holding a sc/outsmas this year?

I myself just enjoy gifting a few anons, but mainly just browsing all your wish lists for ideas for myself.

Anyhoo just wondering

'elo /out/

recently inherited some land and an old decrepit house and i'm looking into stopping being a citycuck and moving there and building a new house and growing food.

problem is, there used to be a copper mine in the area that supposedely contaminated the water that's in the sewer system. there is a fresh water well there, but due to some fuckery from the ex commie government, it's 30 meters outside of the land, across a road, so it's not very practical to use it.

my question is, is it possible to purify the water from the...

1. Fresh water doesn't come from a sewer system. A sewer system carries waste water away.

2. The ground water (and srrounding soil) probably isn't contaminated with copper, it's probably contaminated with all the nasty ass solvents and acids used to extract the copper.

3. The well is probably contaminated, too.

4. You don't know enough about natural sciences or even basic plumbing to be a farmer.

chalk the "sewer" thing to english being my second language. i don't know what the actual word for the pipe system transporting water is in english.

anyway, yeah, obviously i don't know shit at this point. i'm just looking into some preliminary things right now and this was one of them.

my grandfather used to grow stuff there, during and after the mine's active period, i know that much.

anyway, i'm pretty sure you didn't answer a single question i had. if...

OK, fine. Your first and only option should be to get the soil and water tested to see what it's contaminated with because the you can determine if farming or living on this land is even financially viable.

It's a right. Same in Norway and I think Denmark too. You know, that'd explain why I always meet Germans every time I go /out/. Just a side note for all Germans that want to come here, if you don't bring coffee with you to the mountains, don't complain when I give you instant coffee from my backpack. I know it tastes like ass but I'm not packing coffee filters and shit with me and neither did you.

Eastern Europe? Russia?

I don't think any EU country is like that. So many fucking regulations, tourists, clear cut forests etc. Pretty shit if you ask me.

Swede here. We have what's called the All Mans Right which allows you to camp anywhere for one night, even private property as long as its not literaly someones Backyard or too close to someones house

not sure about the legality of firemaking but it's so engrained in outdoors culture that noone will think twice as long as you dont go full retard with it

Norway has much the same law, I think Finland too. not sure about Denmark but they dont really have anywhere to go
