I saw the new Google interactive slideshow that replaces the logo since August is National Parks Month in the US. In a few of the slides, they had a girl(?) in a wheelchair.

How do they expect us to believe that someone in a wheelchair was able to traverse through the paths? Are there some kind of tread attachments for wheelchairs or something? I remember seeing those Hoverround commercials where a bunch of old people scream out "HOVERROUND!" at the edge of the Grand Canyon or something, but how realistic is that?

Does /out/ listen to music while out? Do you play music, either to yourself or with friends?

I can sing and play basic rhythm guitar and whenever my friends and I get together for something I usually end up playing a few songs. Marty Robbins and Johnny Cash are some of my favorites. Sometimes we'll get a few of us who play guitar together and make sweet six string music.

Depending on your fishin holes, you may want to go a little heavier on the line. Idk if it's just me, but going heavier with the line on casting reels doesn't seem to impact casting distance nearly as much as with spinning reels.

If you aren't going to be hooking into lilly pads a ton, 15lb will be fine.

Also, I have the AWOL guidebook and I've been looking at all the towns that you pass by while hiking. Some of them are limited to one or two gas station-type places, of some sort of "market". Do these places usually have enough as far as a food is concerned? Mainly talking...

Most towns on the trail have a lot of stuff geared towards hikers. If a certain gas station is the closest gas station to the trail, you can bet they stock stuff for hikers. Even if they don't have much, they will be able to point you where to go. They are very, very used to hikers coming and going.

DUDE wash everything that may have been in conctact with the urushiol oil. Re-exposure is a huge part of nasty breakouts. Clothes, pillow, tent, or whatever might have oil on it needs to be washed. You might have more and more exposure appear on your skin over the next couple days from any re-exposing that happened after the initial brush with the ivy. Some people have breakouts increase for 2-3 weeks because they have oil on their steering wheel or something and don't know it.

Also, if it's on your eye you'll probably want to see a doc just to be safe.

Going inside again next week. We went about 3/4 mile inwards last night. We turned around at the first water sensor thing. Was attached to a string that went thru the ceiling.

Plenty of manholes along the way.

We have rope and flashlights and cameras and Gopros and snacks and water.

I'm thinking about setting up a scarecrow like screamer in my wooded trail park. Still have this costume in my closet too.

Perhaps just set it up one day around a corner of the trail, maybe out in the woods so u see it from a distance.

Any advice to spook the shit out of people? No harm wanted, and not to scare off people from the woods, thought I'd actually leave something inside like a reward to whoever checks it out.

Just want to prop it up and leave and check up on it every week

hey /out/, i fished a bunch when i was younger, but lost interest, and with it, my tacklebox&pole.

so what would you consider a decent fishing pole that you can do about anything on, for a decent price tag? pref no more than 60$.

Just grab a zebco with a reel style of your preference.
Can get them at Walmart for $20-$30.
Grab one of those little kid starter tackle boxes.
Sinkers, bobbers, hooks.

I always preferred live bait.

If you're doing bluegill all you need is some tiny treble hooks, don't even need bait.

If you want to surf fish you'll need a lot heavier gear. Same with anything ocean really- not going to get there for $60.

Stay away from poles with any sort of clear plastic. They shatter and break easier.

Im going to buy a new rod and reel tomorrow actually with about 60 bucks. Ill let ya know what I get. Or you can check the never ending fishing thread.

Make better soil, yours is probably pretty dead. And add manure + water over top of the sprouts, it should becime a sort of cake layer. Or Add small twigs and dead leaves as a top layer, or more mulch. Dont water them to the point of soil erosion.

If I am sleeping on a ground cloth outside a tent, it is real easy to rub one out and roll over and dump my load into the dirt, even while the gf is sleeping next to me

This is why I like the tarp/groundcloth combo

Okay guys I'm stumped. I live in Charlotte, NC and for the past few weeks, at night, there's a loud "REE" call from the trees out behind the complex, about every 20-30 seconds, the call lasts for a brief 1 or 1.5 seconds.

I'm utterly at a loss to identify this, can anyone help? It literally just goes "REE" one time with no other sound.

This is not a trollpost

cmon mate this isnt 1999.
go out with your phone, record it into a voice/ memo recording app. upload it to vocaroo or youtube and then come back.

Alternatively, watch the wildlife for 45 minutes and see what comes and goes and consult one of the many apps and books available for bird/ wildlife identification.

why would I do that? irrespective of date that's something a stupid person would do (brute force), a smart person would find it through googling the appropriate terms like I did.

The only reason I didn't find it instantly is that it's not classified as a "call" but just a...

So with the all the homeless/NEET/ohgodIhatemylife threads on /out/ I thought I'd start a general thread for seasonal /out/ work.

Guide companies, ski resorts, summer camps, remote lodges, etc. It's a great way to see awesome places and I thought it would be nice to have a thread where people can ask questions, provide resources and share experiences.

I did it in my younger days and decided to get back into it after being really unhappy with my 9 to 5. I spent the last winter I'm Utah skiing and I've spent this summer working for a rafting company...

General tips:

The internet is your friend. I get most of my work through a website called coolworks. You can sort by state, country, job, season, etc. They'll tell who provides housing, who provides training, etc.

I know /out/ is pretty anti-social media, but facebook is actually a really good tool for keeping on touch with friends, employers, etc.

Certain skill sets are always going to be in demand, like guiding or kitchen experience, but even if you're a total NEET get your foot in the door somewhere. Washing dishes, scrubbing floors, answering...

Was hoping a thread like this would pop up.

I am in school for a BS in forestry and a minor in environmental science. My ideal job would be doing something not many people are willing to do. Would really like to do research and stuff like that (Going to remote places for long periods of time).

What might be some obscure jobs to take? How difficult/what kind of credentials do you need to get a job as a fire lookout?

The go to for forestry people in the US as far as seasonal work goes is trail building and woodland firefighting in the summer.

I applied two years in a row during and after my bachelor's in bio and never got in. I guess it's getting popular.

Alternatives to that you can look into fishery work or if your resume has the chops theres seasonal work in Antarctica for research support.

Hey /out/ Armyfag here, I was wondering if there was anyone around or used to be around the Fort Bragg/Fayetteville, North Carolina that could suggest any good trail hikes or any scenic drives for the weekends? I know there's not a mountain in sight, and that bums me out, but I'm trying to make due.

I was never at bragg, but I was at a few orher bases. 12b. sapper.

your base more than likely has a place the reserve the spots that are not being used for training. most of the bases I was at called them hunting clubs.

the most important thing that rhe military can teach you is how to read policy. and how to petition a bureaucracy.

I'm at Seymour Johnson, and for weekends I head out to the Uwharries. 2 hour drive from here. Probably less for you.
You've got acres of forestry land out there, hike/hunt/target shoot all you want.
Abandoned gold mines to explore (pic related) and the whole of the uwharrie river to fish.

Google that shit
