I have a rather specific question /out/, and it's one that probably won't go over well but ill try anyway.
I really like learning about bushcraft, survivalism, preparing for SHTF and all that. Not that I feel that it's super important or will be useful but because it's fun and there's still that one in a million chance of it actually helping me someday. However I'm trans which is why I'm asking if it's possible to get estrogen in a survival scenario. I know other people who rely on certain medications have asked similar questions...

I'm currently planning a backpacking trip for this Spring. My current focus is on picking a location/route. I've done 3-4 day trips, but I'd like to make this one around a week. Most routes I've found online tend to be 2-4 day routes. I'm located in North Carolina (School:Greensboro Home:Raleigh) and would prefer to go somewhere that's around 3-5 hours driving range. I'd like to pursue mountainous/difficult terrain since I'm in pretty good shape and I like the idea of a challenge. I'm also open to the idea of exploring... Comment too long.

>>635391 Don't know that you could get much more than a basic kit for that budget. Maybe just get one of the cheap ones with bandaids and whatnot in it, then buy some extra pieces yourself to put in it. Some things you could add: liquid bandage, quickclot, steristrips, compression bandage.
>>635373 Pine sugar actually used to be a common sweetener for native Americans, and the needles were frequently used as a source of vitamin C. Pine pulp is still used in food today as a filler/fibre source. Pine nuts are used in salads, and have a buttery/minty flavor. Pine pollen can be used as a flour substitute. Pine is completely edible.
Unless she's allergic, in which case yeah, she'll probably die.

Anyone here use a quilt from Enlightened Equipment? I've been wanting to make the switch to down for a while now and I think a quilt would be a better choice for me. EE has a holiday sale going on now and I'm really interested in the Revelation quilt.
>>635236 Poorfag here, I was thinking about getting this. Is it a good option or should I kill myself for even considering it?http://www.google.com/shopping/product/1?lsf=seller:8638497,store:8477584637234871570&prds=pid:11079026953212743055,oid:11079026953212743055&q=coleman+mountain+sleeping+bags&hl=en&ei=9XZTVtWSFIPloASxopagCg
Hey /out/ for this coming winter I am wanting to get a warm winter jacket, and been looking at military surplus jackets, and was wondering does /out/ have approved milsurp winter jacket? I was looking at goretex ecwcs on ebay, and they were pretty cheap (around 70 bucks for my size)
>>635156 mostly ecwcs jacket is something I believe I might want.. I live in climate where it gets in single digits, high winds (sometimes) snow could be up to a foot (but more realistically its 6-8 inches)
The weather fluctuates some days its in single digits some days its in the upper 50 to lower 60s.
This is in the midwest Nebraska/Iowa/Kansas/Missouri
>>635131 >What's a good bike for general commuting. I live in a city with hills so should I get one with gears? Yes gears. What's best depends on the distance and your preference but hybrid or cyclocross is always a good bet. Also, get some proper fenders.
Does /out/ like rock/mineral/gem hounding and going into old mines? Been out here in New Mexico since friday and I am absolutely loving it out here. Went to the Kelly Mine today and went down a bunch of tunnels, climbed some cable and shit into a very large room with some nice quartz(hard to get to) and a few bats.
I wouldn't reccomend going solo, and there's usually information out there on what's stable and what's not if you talk to locals and/or the gem/mineral society of the area.
I've always had the pleasure of having great guides, but I would imagine even a solo trip up to a horizontal shaft to get at something near some sunlight, ontop of getting a beautiful hike, would be well worth it.
How hard is it to go from beginner archery to being able to hit a rabbit? Ive acquired three bows, 1 fiberglass shortbow and 2 wooden longbows. Having never shot a bow before, i would love to be able to hunt with one, though i understand that goal is very ambitious. In ny area we only really have rabbits, coyotes, bobcats, a small handful of deer that i dont think we can hunt, and some wild pigs if you can find them. Ideally i would be able to hone the skill to the point of hunting rabbits (jack rabbit has no season, others do) so i have a few questions

>>634925 Depends really. You can get tips like the one in pic related or some type of field points. While you can try to shoot them on the move I generally just creep close enough while they are just standing there and shoot. You can get close enough to do so before they run off. You just need to practice either way of how you want to hunt.
I love it when some fag literally grabs something that has existed for ages, slaps a shiny brand on it and sells it. I mean im not going to lie some people actually improve the design but this is just a fucking hammock. Besides how does the people on the top climb down if they wanna piss in the middle of the night? Do they wake everybody up?
