There is a remote location that needs power. Helicopter can't get in. Current weak snowmobiles couldn't make it.
I'm planning to snowshoe in. It's 19km from the nearest public road. It's up a mountain quad trail.
I'll wear snow shoes. Viking rubber boats with multiple wool socks, with polypropaline base layer. Pants with snow pants on top. Layers, maybe two jackets with sweaters (I can always take one off). Gloves.
I'll be pulling a generator on a sled. Probably weighs 80 or so lbs.
Lots of food.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>652060 Ah... been there, done that. Tracked ATV might be a better choice over a snowmobile, depending on the terrain and amount of snow.
Are you sure it's without power, or did a controller/repeater die? Or some other equipment failure (Combiner, antenna, feedline, power dist.)? Do you have anything alive on the site? (POTS? IP? Microwave?)
If it's a digital (P25 or DMR) system, I'd set up a 2nd/3rd repeater temporarily and link them over IP or P2P microwave until you can get to the primary... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Welp I've been to Romania for hiking, but a different area. Not sure how applicable my experiences will be but I'll share some top tips anyway.
I was hiking in the fagaras mountains, and the single biggest danger was the sheepdogs. Do not fuck with a sheepdog. If you see a herd of sheep, be afraid. Be very afraid. They will try to rip your face off if their shepard doesn't stop them, and even if he yells at them, they'll still want to rip your face off and will be barely containing the urge. Carry lots of dry socks. Dunno how the weather gods will... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>652313 One further tip: Don't be nice to the stray dogs. There's tons of them, they will beg from you, and if you give them anything, even just affection, they'll follow you. We got a stray killed because we were nice to it - it followed us ~10 miles out of town to a lodge we were staying at. The lodge owners had 2 beastly dogs protecting their place from strays and those 2 presumably killed it. They kept the beasts back while we were around, but I think at night they were let loose and the stray was still hanging... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
1. carry cash. romanian LEI, not euros or whatever. 2. in cities or areas near to cities, most people will know english. in very rural areas, 99% will not speak anything other than romanian 3. do not trust gypsies 4. do NOT trust gypsies 5. like the other guy said, sheepdogs are vicious. keep a large can of pepper spray handy. 6. never turn your back on a sheepdog 7. eat "mici". they are small kebab-like things made from beef and sheep. delicious. use mustard 8. if you can find...

Its happenig! I am looking forward for your results here..
Hi /out/ I will be beginning my basic military training in about half a year and I want to get a good pair of boots. They need to be black like in pic related. The ones you get given are okay supposedly, but some comapanies allow you to use your own. I figure it'd be a good idea to get more used to marching with a similar type of boots already. Any recommendations for black boots?
Hey I want to start hunting raccoons but I have no knowledge about them and I tried looking up information about them and I have no trail cams or hunting dogs to see if any raccoons are in the area I'm in Florida
I'm from Nebraska, plenty of the little bastards. Just drive around sides of field* (*Make sure you have permission) and shine spotlight in trees. Watch for the reflection of their eyes and hold and POW, you got yourself a nice coon
alright, head to a town called vernonia. be careful. if you blink, you'll miss it. once you make it, head out past the millpond, hang a left and drive forward for 30-45 minutes until you hit mist. Once there find a logging road, any logging road. head out for 15 minutes sti your car, pick a nice site and build you a cabin. live there for 10 years while doing forestry work like planting trees, clearing out invasive species, and other woody goodness. around fall, hunters will start showing up with beer and weed. let them in and you'll start recieving venison.
