So I've made up my mind I'm leaving my home and I'm going to go out on the Appalachian trail and I'm going to start heading North. A really good friend of mine is coming with me and he's been planning on doing something like this for a long time. He already has a lot of gear to choose from to take with him and doesn't really have to buy anything else. As for myself I'm not prepared at all for this I just made this decision and I'm sticking with it. We're not leaving until March so I have about 3 months to... Comment too long.

Hey /out/ I usually browse /k/ but I thought I would be better served here. I recently moved back to Northern Illinois and was wondering if there is any good camping. I don't mean those lots where you rent a spot, I mean good, honest to god camping. Thanks
I recently moved to Denver, Colorado and I want to start going /out/ more. I go on hikes and go shooting in the mountains, but I want to get into camping, bushcraft, and shit.
However, it seems a bit more challenging than other parts of the country. We don't have an abundance of materials to work with. For example, if I want to build a lean-to, I don't have any grass/ferns/tree branches to use as thatching. Basically we have pine trees(whose branches often start higher than I am tall), some aspen and then... sandy dirt and rocks.
All the cool bushcraft... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This addiction is getting expensive. Anyway I just grabbed myself a new rod and reel as an early Christmas present. What do you goys think? This my second President reel. Bought a regular President a couple months ago on reccommendations from the internet. Can't complain so far, but it is a slightly larger "medium" weight one while this is a "medium/light".
So let's make a thread where we post our tackle and forget how much money we wasted. Also mention what kind of fishing you do mostly. Largemouth, peacocks, and sometimes snakeheads for... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>645323 I own a Stella. And I bought it an NRX rod to go on.
That and several Stradics so I am confirmed Shimano shill. Honestly, the Stella is nice but not even close to worth the money over a Stradic. NRX is pretty damn amazing though.
I like powerpro and it is pretty much all I fish with. I do mostly salmonoids here in AK we have tons. Steelhead and Kings mostly but I will slum Sockeye here and there. Lingcod and Halibut when I can get a ride on someone else's boat since I don't really have the gear for them yet.
>>645349 I have been debating grabbing another Shimano reel. A few years back, I grabbed a Sienna ultralite reel. All the reviews had it as their best reel for under $50. It's nice. I almost grabbed a Sedona or whatever their next tier reel is when I bought that first Pflueger President.
My only problem with the Sienna is the ultralite reel is really small. Especially the spool for the line. I wouldn't want to run anything more than 2lb mono and that is too small for bass fishing. I used 10lb Power Pro (2lb diameter... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>645356 And my Mepps addiction is getting out of hand. They are by far my favorite lure ever. Today at a local lake, I was using a Mepps Dressed Agila #1 with a brown skirt and silver blade. In about 45min, I got 5 bream, 2 largemouth, and a peacock bass.
What you're gonna want to do is carefully slip some chicken nuggets up their butts while they're asleep. Then, while they are still sleeping, put more chicken nuggets in their butts. I forgot the question
>>645259 Either suggest it while they've had a few drinks or find people that are actually interested in that kind of thing. I've gone exploring with friends but they're not as interested in it as I am. I usually go alone because of this.
Hey /out/, I think it's time to get a new battle buddy, had a German shepherd, lost him a few years ago, think it's time now to get a new one. I'm thinking Rottweiler. They are supposed to be good with kids , good /out/ , good to protect the home and don't have a high a drive as German shepherds , what does /out/ think ?
Alright before I start I admit this is a strange question.
I am a city yuppie living in the suburbs of Toronto who only knows other yuppies. I love to cook, I own and shoot guns(at a private club) and I am always trying to teach myself something new. >I have never hunted or shot at anything living and am looking to start with small game. >Right now I'm trying to teach myself how to clean wild game. >The problem is when I watched this video and it churned my stomach https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZB7iE2b21M Comment too long.

>>645208 You might like watching Gin no Saji. Animu about a city boy going to an ag.school and having to come to terms with killing animals and other gross facts of life.
Sure you could desensitize yourself by watching a bunch of gore and snuff films, but I don't think that's healthy. You just have to accept the fact that we're all made out of meat and the circle of life and all that kinda stuff.
>>645208 Just remember when you do harvest an animal, you owe it to the animal to dress it cleanly and treat its carcass with respect. This feeling of responsibility should overcome any squeamishness you have.
>>645196 The Mormons published a list of supplies each family would need before they started their trek west. I would imagine it was similar to / based on the equipment used by pioneers on the Oregon Trail and such.
