Does anyone on /out/ do historical camping? Me and a friend are trying to get into with using the kit of an american woodsman / longhunter from around 1760-1800. Was wondering if out could give any tips, especially as we'll be using basic kit by todays standards.
>>811525 TFO is the most cost efficient choice and of course comes with lifetime warranty.
Once you want to upgrade, Sage would be another good pick but overly expensive yet has proper support/warranty compared to Orvis.
If those are not what you are looking for, check out Allen Fly Fishing; I have never had an issue with orders of hooks, materials, fly line/leaders, and more. I would imagine their advertised rod/reel combinations when on sale could match TFO on cost efficiency and they offer lifetime warranty with... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>811585 I would suggest to not go higher than 6weight rod/reel for those fish and waters.
You would possibly want to select Coldwater fly line but depending on your budget, most outfits have slim options if any for backing and fly line. Weight Forward is usually good for a starting fly line as it helps with casting; another option which comes with most starter kits is balanced fly line which is not tapered. You would see it labeled as WF6 or similar (weight forward for 6 weight).
As much as I dislike Orvis products,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Pretty much I'm a indoor neck beard fag, I need your help what are the basics that I should bring, my brother is making me go camping with him what are the basic necessities that I need to bring for 3 days
Tell us where you're going. Things are going to be different if you're in the southern or northern hemisphere, desert or temperate rainforest, etc. Shops you can buy gear from:
Secondhand stores (americans call them thrift stores)
Military surplus things you need:
backpack, big enough to fit all you need sleeping bag. doesn't have to be good since I assume it's summer where you are Maybe a hoodie or waterproof jacket if it gets cold or rains. A good knife. Moras are a meme but they're cheap as fuck, or get a scondhand... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>810520 More info on where, when, and how would give you better answers.
That said here's a few general things I can think of for being /out/ in general:
-water, bring a little more than you think and drink more than you want.
-snacks. In addition to eating meals, snack a lot. Being outside burns a ton of calories, and often times you might not even realize it. If you find yourself tired or angry, take a break and eat something.
-wool or polar-fleece jacket/sweater (if possible, don't sweat it if all you have is cotton). Even in the middle of summer, it gets cold at night. The wool/polar fleece is because it keeps you warm even if it's wet, unlike cotton. This leads me to my next point...
-a cotton bandanna. lots of uses. in the summer heat it's really nice to soak and then tie around the head, or have on the neck.
-duct tape (repairs, good for blisters if hiking)
-bug spray (bring a ton of it if youre going somewhere low and buggy)
-entertainment (deck of cards, book, instrument, small portable game)
-a hat. yes your fedora could work, or just a cap or anything to keep the sun off. Maybe sunglasses, maybe both, whatever makes you comfy.
If you are hiking, there are a few more things to consider.
-talc powder (gold bond) or vaseline or anti-chaffe stuff. This is a godsend when you need it, and life sucks without it. Your nuts will thank me.
-find two sticks for walking with
-do away with extravagances, try to pack lightly. It really matters for comfort and it's easier to realize you could've carried more than to realize you can't carry what you brought anymore. Don't pack your fears.
Above all else, trust your brother and coordinate with him on what you bring. Have fun, take pictures and tell us how it goes.
>>809668 i have a '95 land cruiser that ive had for about 2 years now. fully stock except has a set of 33"s on it. thinking of finally jumping into some actual upgrades so i can tackle some more serious terrain and get further /out/ probably going to go with 35" bfg ko2s 3 inch ome suspension lift roof rack + mounts for hi lift jack/shovel/jerry cans/axe/etc. might consider front bull bar as well but that will probably be further into the future
>>809668 So this is a car camping thread? >ultralight is for faggots So sitting on your fat ass while driving a car is less manly than carrying gear into the mountains on your back? What have you been smoking? Car exhaust?
And there is already a thread about this >>798515 But I guess checking the catalog is for faggots too
You will quickly end up with 15 of them. Seriously, just having one is boring. It dosen't take that much of your time so if you wanna be like mr.Miyagi you'll end up growing quite a few. Also consider that most species require a decent amount of light. I never had outdoors ones so I can't help you with that. I'm kind of a newfag to bonsais anyways, but after 1 year I think it's fun.
>>791498 440/216 Reporting in. West-side suburbs of Cleveland. Cuyahoga Valley National Park frequenter. Tripper at the Ledges. Canoeing at Mohican. Dip down to God's Country (West Virginia High Country, Hawks Nest area, for those not in the know, pic related) on the reg. Good innawoods up here if you search.
Recently got this as my everyday bag and so far its great. Side pockets each hold either a 1L drink bottle or thermos. 3 different pouches inside so laptop, tablet, paperwoek/books. Also has a hole up top to use a hydration bladder. Has heaps of pockets and pouches to keep lottle things safe and secure. Repels light rain pretty well too.
Which state has the best environment for activities such as hiking and camping? Unfortunately, I'm not that wealthy and I'm stuck in Nebraska which completely lacks forests, natural lakes, and mountains.
>>814188 I would say New York. The Adirondack Mts. are beautiful there and it isn't that hot in the summer time. It's filled with lakes and big creeks. Pic related is when I drove through Lake Placid. Nice little town. It has some hiking shops if you need anything like that.
>>813720 Not bait anon, although I have gone fishing. I've paddled a few times but I don't get why anyone would need a wet suit. Mass water is cold as a witches titty compared to so cal water. If that the only reason that surfers wear wetsuits here then they're a bunch of pussies.
Kayaks: Have always rented kayaks but have started to consider buying my own. I want something that's wide enough I don't have to constantly balance my core to avoid tipping. Storage would also be a plus. Any recommendations?
Question being, I've sturdily decided to remove myself from the utterly useless world of my country's academics and quit University in exchange for professional education in an /out/-related field.
Now, it's not one of those "boohoo /out/, gimme job" threads. I've done my research on my local education programs, found decent ones and my number one thus far is the position of a Forester. Now, according to the program, what the position entails is the management of woodland resources,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I work for the US Forest Service and basically the job of a forester is to manage the harvesting of timber. What that typically entails is going out into a stand and measuring and identifying mature trees to determine the amount of lumber and firewood you can get out of it. Then, after cutting, figuring out what you send where.
There's some math involved, so for example, say you were trying to figure out how much lumber you could get out of a certain stand of trees. You would randomly sample plots in the total area, identifying the trees above a certain diameter... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>812680 The job of a Forrester is to not allow for timber sales, recreation, or other uses like repeaters, broadcast towers and microwave facilities. Kind of like being a cop, they won't arrest the criminals and have to lie, cheat and pamper foreign entities that want our resources. You are basically a rape enabler
>>812680 I should also qualify that there is a conservation, recreation, and sustainability aspect to it too. It's not all clear cutting like this overemotional faggot here >>812700 is apparently getting so butt hurt about.

What are some /out/ towns/cities. I'm looking for a place to move and want some mountains and forests and all that good shit. A national park/forest would be nice too. Preferably somewhere affordable where you can rent a decent place for a little less than or more than $1000 a month. College in town would be a bonus as well. Help me get /out/ of my hometown.
I am a 23 y/o male that lived a mostly sheltered life and after going /out/ with some friends, I discovered a passion about anything related to outdoors. I went fishing, hiking, sailing, canoeing, cut down some dead trees and it truly sparked within me. I have a lot of free time because of my schedule and I was wondering...how to become an adventurer like pic related? The kind of things you see in National Geographic/ Are there some courses or events I should take? I already have my scuba diving, climbing and hunting license...what else should I do/buy? I...

Don't know what's the official definition of an adventurer, or what kind of stories they have on NG.
But I'd say, while you can do all the above you'll need to choose one or two of them as your main focus. Better start with one. Start going and doing the common routes of that sport, you'll meet people along the way and hear recommendations from other places they've been. Go to some of these places. Slowly do harder and harder routes.

I've had great recommendations the last few threads so I'll try again, every year I go on a ~2 week trip, this year I'm going from SF to somewhere in Montana and back, first day I'm going to Bend OR, haven't decided much of the route past that. I try to camp on BLM/dispersed areas in National Forest/Monument. What are some good, remote places in OR/WA/MO/ID you would recommend? My girlfriend is really into gold panning and we are GPAA members so places where there's gold are good. I'll keep the thread bumped with some of my pics from previous trips.
Hello /out/ Am I going to be fucked or is it not too bad?
I've camped once before actually, back home in Venezuela in La Gran Sabana.
However this is gonna be my first time alone and in USA.
Planning for a 4 day trip through Smokey Mountains all the way to Asheville and back to western Alabama next weekend but "testing waters" this weekend here in Alabama. Going to either Borden Creek Trail in Sipsey or the Chinnabee Silent Trail.
I'm probably lagging the most in gear so I'll be renting from University for the long trip.
What I'm bringing forth is: >comfortable running shoes >knife >snacks >water >iodine tablets >book
Im gonna look to rent a tent and maybe sleeping bag.
Do I need a stove? What should I know about food to take? Any trails or locations I should consider? Anything particular I should look to test out this weekend? Any suggestions or comments at all?
So a few years back a few friends and I roped together an /out/ing to O.N.F.
I was thinking of doing another smaller trip with just my pals, but I have no idea how whomever organized the last trip verified us legally or whatever.
I know we just kind of rode in and parked off of the Forest Service Road, but does anyone know where we stand legally as far as leaving cars places, or where the actual park boundaries are before you enter the land of the lawless?
Me andy friend camp out there a lot, we go disperse camping though which means you basically go where ever the fuck you want and camp. We have this hidden camping spot we discovered that we always go back to near a pond, its impossible to get to though unless you have 4WD and a lot of ground clearance so it's perfect because we're the only ones who can get back there, also the trail is super narrow and gets overgrown so it's impossible to spot unless you know where to look. We've camped there... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I went to /k/ with this but they are so little help it is mind blowing. I am looking to do some hunting this fall/winter. I live in Northern Alberta, near the Saskatchewan border. Of course I can hunt deer in the area of Northern Alberta, I can hunt north of me in Alberta too. I love the idea of fishing and know of a few areas this is possible.
Now hunting wise I am looking at a 12 gauge Mossberg 500 Field. The price is significantly better than a comparable remington gun. I am looking to protein hunt, so basically any small game. I am looking to do... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm going to try to answer your post as best as possible. I'm a Northern Pennsylvania native and have plenty of experience hunting both "what" and "how" you are referring to. First things first, if you are looking to go small game only, go for a 20ga. That will save on weight and felt recoil if nothing else. Carry a mix of small game load and slugs if you plan on hunting both (not sure what your seasons are like). Assuming everything is for a day long hunt where you can return to camp... >Gun+ammo+sling+ect. You mentioned a 500, great choice for both styles of hunting. I personally own both a Mossy 500 and a Rem 870 clone and find they are fantastic for small and large game. It truly depends on the deal you can get when buying, as well as some small aesthetic/ergonomic details. A sling will certainly help for long hikes where you DON'T plan on shooting, forget about it otherwise. >Some sort of game bag Just buy a vest with one built into the back, it will be the best choice IMO. >My hiking boots, goggles, knife(s), maybe a hatchet Buy boots that fit your feet well and you have broken in already. Waterproof them! I like mink oil but there may be another method that you prefer. I don't use goggles, that's really a matter of preference. Any kind of SHARP folding knife will be absolutely necessary for field dressing game. Keep it on the small side, no need to get tactacticool here. Forget a hatchet. > Backpack Whatever is comfortable that meets your needs and doesn't look completely out of place. I have an old army BDU day pack that I use and it is more than enough.
Canoeing is fun with a buddy and I love it, but I want to take it out alone sometimes. But i bought this big old Cadillac and it's hard as fuck to transport without two sets of hands. I can do it, but its a pain in the ass and my car is scratched to shit from loading it up by myself.
Should I replace the seats and center container with traditional bars? It seems like it would definitely make lifting it easier since there are literally no places to grasp it with that shit. The seats are nice and all but you can just... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A genuine Bill Engvall moment happened tonight at Ocean State Job Lot. I brought this stuff up to the counter -- tent stakes, lantern, rope, air mattress (how come these damn things only last one year?), bungee cords, and other necessities. She said the obvious: "You goin' camping?"
"Nope, my office is having a nuclear war preparedness drill and we'll be underground for five days. Here's your sign."
