I fucking hate that hippie smell. I bought some high end vintage speaker a few years ago from an estate sale. Turns out the previous owner was an incense freak. Could not get rid of the smell no matter what I did. Ended up giving them away.
The odor of incense/cologne/potpourri/candles is revolting.
If your gear stinks you should clean it and/or store it better. Chuck a block of cedar in you or pack when it isn't in use. Same for your /out/ clothing.
I hunt mostly in sagebrush plains so I toss a couple of branches of it in the tote I keep my hunting gear in before I store it for the season. Keeps it from coming out musty and it smells faintly of the place I'm going to anyway.
Anyone have any good recommendations for a good shell under $180.00 USC.
my Mountain Hardware Plasma was just not durable enough. It would have been the best jacket i had ever owned if it didnt puncture so fucking easy. at the rate it tears in about 3 weeks or so it will be more ripstop tape than jacket.
What are you using it for? How waterproof does it need to be (I.e. how rainy is your area)?
The Marmot Precip is the first thing that comes to mind. It's basically the Mora of jackets, from the perspective of someone who thinks Moras are good value and functional for what most people need. However, if you already have issues with tearing your jackets, it may be better to opt for a "true" 3 layer hardshell, which will be more expensive and a little bit heavier, but will be very durable and fully weatherproof.
>>646096 Clearly bear grills is the best as he constantly shows you how to survive safely. People like ray 'buy my tat' mears only talks about other people in survival situations, he may occasionally show a tip or two but you don't learn much. Dual survivor was good but disappointed they didn't fall in love and a gay survival episode. A-Team was ok
So right now im looking for some advise on turning a shed that i use to store my sled and tractor into a living space within which i can sleep eat and basically function normally. It really isnt fair to call it a shed as its more of a bunkhouse with the rest of it being made of doors and other misalliances things. the section i want to live in has power and a breaker box with edison fuses so im not going to be without electricity. i already have a radio and tv set up in there since i mainly use the area when im working...

>>646072 go buy some tin and make you a tin roof. Get some insulation and/or expanding foam and fill all the holes so that it is airtight with no drafts. buy 2x4 and plywood and build a subfloor with insulation underneath. Put insulation on the walls and cover it with drywall or plywood. Drywall is less of a fire hazard. If you have trees nearby get a wood burning stove. Otherwise, get an electric heater to run off of your electricity so you don't freeze to death. There ya go in order of importance. If you don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Ok winter is here and I am hating it. xmas is my most hated time of year and I have a week off. I am south of Denver and want to get somewhere warm and awesome to camp. Do have a very small RV. Where would you go /out/?
Been wanting a "frame pack" found this one at Cal Ranch store, $75 USD. Very sturdy, can't wait to rig it out. I've got a 65 L dry bag to use for a main compartment.
Got the three piece snow shovel for $17 USD. Say this a year or two ago and went back for it, by my second trip, sold out! This time I could choose between red, org or blu. Got the red. I will strap it to the outside frame.
And a nice pair of Smartwool Hikers.
Getting ready to summit a 12,600' in mid Jan so the shovel might be nice for camp site prep.
It just... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Dave C has a video on A.L.I.C.E. frame mods worth wacthing, I fuger frame doesn't matter. This one is longer than A.L.I.C.E. with a far better hip belt. I may look into better sholder straps after some mileage.
Drilling holes for eyebolts or installing cleats for lash points.
Adding various Maxpedition/Blackhawk type modular bags and pouches for custom carry.
I'm thinking pool noodle or foam pipe insulation... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>645981 One last thhing, people are replacing shit A.L.I.C.E. straps and belts with MOLLE straps and belts ("Hellcat" mod I think), you might look to milsurp stores or ebay for those or google img mod. for ideas.
Anyone have issues with wild animals while out? Let me hear your stories, and see your pictures. Pic related, This brave little mouse ran up my left pant leg. Attacking ferociously to the end, which was shortly after I took the picture. Never had a mouse attack before.

Alright /out/. Let's talk about what would happen if militants took to the streets of your hometown. Sort of a "red dawn" situation. What would you do? Bug out? Bug in? Fight back? What supplies would be kept on you?
I am about to go on a kayak camping and fishing trip and am a bit nervous because I have never done it before. I have everything ready but have had to strip down mostly to the bare essentials in order to save space.
Just wondering if others have experience doing such trips and could share any tips they might have that save me having to learn them the hard way?
I've watched Alone in the Wilderness 1 and 2 about 10 times each and it just struck me: he never once mentions taking a shower or washing his clothes.
I get that he lived alone and didn't have to worry about using AXE (tm) Bodywash to attract grills, but how would he practice basic hygiene without even a gravity shower? He could have easily rigged something up to the bottom of the raised cache he built and warm water up on his stove.
It looks cold where he is, he doesn't have the need to bathe as he doesn't sweat profusely, certainly looks too cold for most bugs and is sure he isn't shoveling shit or doing gross farm related chores.
If he truly needed to he could always steam shower and steam wash his clothes.
