Have any of you ever tried to wash yourselves with snow? I'm headed out for a couple of days, our shower at home is being renovated, and I'm pretty greasy. Thought I might try rubbing some snow on myself when I get out there.
Fill your sink with soapy water. Get a rough washcloth. Scrub yourself with the cloth while standing in front of the sink. Once you're clean, drain the water and scrub yourself with the non-soapy cloth until you are no longer soapy. You'll get a hell of a lot cleaner and you wont freeze/cut yourself on the snow.
>>640294 Some kind of ethnic tribalism, maybe? I'm serious. Have you ever seen someone rant about bicyclists saying that bicyclists should have to pay registration? Everyone, besides a few exceptions, (or people in the city) drives. Every bicyclist is already paying for some kind of vehicle registration.
Many think he's too dramatic, I kind of get his reasoning (people see the show and think "oh it's just like camping").
At some point someone's going to bring up the forum that had a few guys that went to one of les' survival sites, but nobody ever brings up his response. If you're going to bring that up, at least post his response.
Yeah I love it, Minnesota has a good skiing community so there are a lot of places that groom trails and rent skis. I rented for a year and then bought my own cheap pair of fischers, I will be training for a race up in Mora mn now that we finally got some snow.
I want to try skiing and camping but I really only have summer camping gear. I imagine you can cover much more ground than hiking.
I am an 18 year old female, want to start some wilderness/semi-wilderness solo camping trips next spring. I know what I am doing but I fear sleeping alone at night out there. Tips to get over it? What are your experiences solo camping?
Tell someone where you're going and when you'll expect to be back. Read up on stealth camping. Even when legitimately camping, I always use stealth and leave no trace principles if only to minimise my own impact, let alone attract unwanted attention from other humans.
I'm talking stuff you are actually bringing with you, not just hunting/foraging for in the wilderness. This could be the obvious things like seasonings/herbs/vegetables you've grown and dried, but also stuff like emergency/supplemental rations in case you can't find enough food in the wild. (pic related, Hardtack from 2008)
One of the things I like to bring are bags of instant soup. I grow a lot of vegetables and mushrooms in my garden and dry a great deal of them ( >>634583 ). With those and some homemade pasta I'll bag up various types of soups and stews I can make from dehydrated vegetables and their powders.
What do you take along with you on your wilderness adventures, /out/?
>>639687 Hardtack, Beef Jerky, Pemmican (with blueberries man, shits so good), bar of dark chocolate, instant oatmeal, dried beans, rice, bouillon cubes, MREs sometimes. Not all of this shit at once, but I always bring hardtack and Pemmican, they make a pretty good stew type thing if you mix them in water.
So some survivalists opened up a store in my area and most of what they have is second hand. I have nothing against second-hand items. One item they have, priced at $25 and in near perfect condition is a Bear Grylls knife that was full tang/had a fire-rod in the sheath. I couldn't tell the model given the clerks were aggressively trying to show me everything in their store but the blade was sharp enough to cut my thumb if I had wanted to. I'm not familiar with the Bear-Gerber knives and figured I'd come ask you sc/out/s about your thoughts/experiences... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
They're mostly an invasive species around here, and the state encourages people to harvest them (as well as bullfrogs). This is easy-mode fishing; you can literally catch them by hand with a bit of practice. Anyone else a crawdad fan?
>>639644 If the crawfish population is dense (true of a lot of smaller streams), you don't even need to bait them; you can just pick one, get behind it, drop a rock in front of it, then use your hands to catch it as it reflexively scoots backward. Then you just toss it in a bucket with a bit of water in it. Repeat again and again as much as you want.
This guy sat down in front of one of my cams and proceeded to sun himself, scratch, scream, bugle and generally rut around for a good hour. I had to clear 400 photos of him. I kept a few of the good ones.
