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.

Please post the date and location of your next /out/ing so I can be sure I'm on the opposite side of the planet from you.
Sounds pretty cool. I wouldn't do it on a regular basis, but it's fun to try shit out. why don't you test these things out yourself and report. Some OC pics would be nice.

What do you do for a tent/tarp?

Wayne national forest has several backpacking trails that can be decent.

Other than that, it's state parks and forests, both of which prohibit open fires and harvesting fire wood.

Heading out to vesuvius lake myself on the weekend of the 29th...hopefully its not shit.
If you're willing to drive to KY, Red River Gorge is beautiful.

That sucks.
Bad thing is, I live in Central Ohio, Columbus to be exact. Guess I'll try Alum Creek.

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...

Thanks for the info. Looking at it now.

I live in central NC. I'm a lifelong brim fisherman, and bass when my buddy with aboat is off work. I also go up to the mountains a lot and would love to try trout.

My main goal is to take my fishing to a new level. I'll always love sitting on bucket on a lake bank somewhere in the woods, but lately I've been wanting something more.
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,...

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.
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.

-extra socks

-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.
backpacking or car camping?

and why isn't your brother helping you figure out what you need?

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

So this is a car camping thread?

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?

who said this was about being manly faggot

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.

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...

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
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.

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.

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
>iodine tablets

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?

This is relevant to my interests... Central Florida fag reporting in. As far as I know there is public camping there and you can shoot gunz if u feel like it
FL here, look at a map to see property lines

There are a good amount of houses but they are usually clumped together, if you are not in one of those areas or the few exceptions you are free to camp anywhere

I understand shooting guns in the forest is frowned upon but I do not know the legal standing (exceptions are hunting and if you are at the shooting range)

> inb4 eww, a campground

I love it, but I wouldn't want to carry it very far.

Ticla Teahouse 3, an awesome tent!
Is this a bait thread or is OP just autistic as fuck?

No offense to OP btw. It's hard to distinguish these days between false autism and intentional autism.

Sup /out/

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...

Hatchets are meme gear for survival tryhards who stay in the campground parking lot

Because I have always been told a small light hatchet is useful? I was thinking with the right one I could process some game in the field easily.
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...
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.

Lugging around a tandem canoe by yourself

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...

Step one: don't buy shitty cheap canoes
Step two: grow stronger
Step three: learn proper lifting technique

Asshat, its a nice canoe that wasn't cheap, I am strong, and I know how to lift things. It's simply too big and HAS NO PLACES TO GRIP for carrying solo.

So I'll repeat myself and say that what I am asking is should I remove the stock seats and center console and replace them with standard canoe seats?

Can you help or are you just going to be a douche?
My 16 foot swift prospector canoe is like 40 pounds and is easy as fuck to manipulate you whiney twat

Hows the paddling going anon? The waters still a bit cold here in New England, but its still nice.

Ocean kayaking is better than fresh water kayaking.

Ugggg I have not gotten to go yet this year and I'm so ashamed. The lady and I are doing the Boston harbor islands on July 4th during the day tho which should be sweet
Freshwater is more scenic but salt fishing is much better

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."

She didn't get it.
