Couldnt find no shroom thread on /out/.
Any pickers had any good find since were coming to the end of the season?

Also any trip stories? Theyre always good!

Picture related, my favourite looking finds from early oct!

I went searching twice but didn't find a single shroom

austria here, went on cow paddocks on about 700-900 meters above sea ground
Me and my brother (both into mycology, brother is an expert of identification imo) found a patch of land home to a ton of Banded Mottlegills in this grassy park where you'd often see rabbits and their shit. We'd come down every week to harvest and eat some together just to have a fun time. Alot of the vibrant visions and euthoric feelings were shared so we never felt alone... It's honestly been the best autumn I've ever had!
They are not always in the ideal locations imo, ive found dozens in habitats that you wouldnt think produce!

Sounds like great bonding time, taking some in the open is something ive been sketchy about but im glad you had a great time, they always make this time of year eventful!

Thanks for your input trying to get my shit all dicked! Do you know anything about mushrooms or fungi in general? If not...

483 KB,
Realise there's already a UK thread but it's a bit shit.

As /out/ shitposters often point out, wild camping in the UK is a pain in the arse. But it's possible. Can even be fucking marvellous when done right.

So, what's your favourite wild camp spot in our green and pleasant land? Scotland and Dartmoor in general are obvious correct answers, but be more specific, dammit.

I guess super easy places to drive to in europe (like France, Belgium, Netherlands, maybe Germany if it's a really amazing spot) can count to.

There's still out in the UK? You guys already removed tree and fauna. Do you camp in some sheep pasture?

I swear, every good meaning thread on /out/ has to have some shitposters and trolls in it.

if you're actually serious, we have trees and fauna. Some areas are very wild and heavily forested. We still have more /out/ spots that ireland or mediterranean island natioms or netherlands.
Is wild camping allowed most places in Scotland?

Can anyone recommend me a good knife for going /out/ with.
I want one I can make a few little tools with and a small shelter preferably.

Is it completely retarded/impossible to try to live in a parked RV full time in Alaska? I just got here about a month ago. In the specific town I'm moving to, your only options are fancy and super expensive vacation rentals, and I don't want or need anything that big or nice. I actually love the idea of living in such a confined space. Granted that I could find a spot with hookups, what all would need to be done? I really don't know what I'm doing at all.

I want to move to some place far north eventually and I'm thinking either Barrow, somewhere in Yukon, somewhere in Nunavut, or north Greenland.

Do you have any experience with the farther north areas like Prudhoe Bay or Barrow? I had to cut a lot of meat out of my diet for health reasons and I'm wondering how hard it is to get vegetarian food up there. I heard that Barrow is extremely expensive but that they also pay much higher wages up there to make up for it, so I'm curious as to whether it evens...

Hi, /out/: In Wilderness and National Park areas I go to in Montana and Wyoming, they have signs that food must be stored in a vehicle or "approved" bear-proof container.

I ask because I would like to make a box for my cooler and other supplies in the front of my trailer (used for hauling ATVs).

Would plywood be enough, with tough latches and hinges? I can weld together steel, but rust is so ugly without a factory finish of powder coating or something. Aluminum would be another choice, but expensive, and could a bear just rip through it?

Any box will work as long as you geocatch it.
Bears dont use GPS
OK, /b/tard, but I want something that meets the definition of the law and also the spirit of the law (like I don't want bears getting into my stuff).
Most of the time they're talking about a bear cannister, but some areas also allow give gallon buckets with lids or yeti coolers.

A lot of parks also have food lockers at their campsites for campers to use.

Your best bet is to call ahead and ask the Rangers what qualifies for their area.

I find him very honourable. He has raised awareness about oceanic problems, such as acidification and pollutions (e.g., PCBs), and how they affect biodiversity and even our future selves.

I agree with his actions of defending cetacean life by breaking down ships and harassing stupid Faroe, Japanese fishermen, and Inuit people considering there is copious evidence defending cetacean high self-awareness and intelligence. If we acknowledge their high encephalization quotient, high degrees of brain folding, complexity of their neocortexes, psychological experiments validating...

Go fuck yourself. I'll stay just so I can piss you off out of spite.
He's a faggot and a retard. If you're going to be an eco-terrorist, do it right. Not that I disagree or agree with him. My ex loves whales and I watched the show because she talked about it. The show was absolutely horrible. It's a noble idea, in its own way, but it's so stupidly done it blew my mind.

Like I said: do it right.

I would like help putting together a list of gear for a 72 hour trek. Ideally everything I will need to survive, and to be able to fit into my Red Rock Assault backpack (pic related). Let's say my budget is $100, not including the backpack itself. Weather conditions are like fall or spring, a little cold but not a snow storm.

72 hours? What is this, preschool? If there's water, bring a filter, otherwise bring clean water. Maybe a sleeping bag, tent and pad, if you're going comfort mode.
A tarp, some cord, something to cut wood for fire, something to start the fire, something to boil water with OVER the fire so you can drink it and something to sleep on. You can survive without food for 3 days but essentially some stuff to snack on like jerky or nuts. That's all you need for 3 days to survive. Since that's what you wanted.
Actually, let me stop being a dick for a minute and give you some DIY links to stuff you can save some cash on. Your budget is tight so i won't recommend brands. http://www.thesodacanstove.com/alcohol-stove/how-to-build.html

Mind if I ask what you're troubles are that you need deer repellent? I'm guessing they're eating your garden up or using sidewalks like in some of the front range towns.

If I was to make a campfire on public land i.e any public forests, controlled and out of the way.
Would I expect to find much trouble, and if I was confronted by anyone, could I justify the fire by saying it was legal?

Are you even allowed to carry matches in the UK?
Yes but you have to have them attached to a special match holder on the outside of your coat. And of course you have to get a license to carry

Looks handy for its size, and I like that it's able to split better than a regular axe, but I'm not sure if it's worth the weight.

Are pork rinds good survival food?

Light weight, high calories, solid fat content, delicious. Sodium content is a little high, but you need a little sodium when you're sweating a lot. Shouldn't a bag of pork rinds be an auto-include for all my /out/ expeditions?

Also other auto-include /out/ foods. Bonus for no-prep.
24 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
I think that's the wrong kind of fat. some types your body can't use, and it's just excreted in fecal matter and through your pores, usually clogging both. Plus, its a high volume, so depending on fat content, it may be okay for car camping, but definitely not for hiking.

My go-to is MRE peanut butter. 250 calories, well balanced between protein carbs and fat, made partially with soy so it has a full amino acid profile, tastes like real food, makes excellent squirrel bait.
>peanut butter
>made partially with soy
What the fuck kind of peanut butter are you eating?
It takes up a lot of room for not much food content.

ALICE Kidney pad. They're like 5-10 bucks on ebay. I paid 11.95 shipped. I need to properly tighten mine up but even loose it's nice and comfy. Follow MCQBushcraft on this one.

I was recently out with someone who had one. He hated it, said it was too heavy, and didn't fit right, kept jabbing him in places. It may have been adjusted wrong, I don't know, just relaying what I was told.
Nice GET. If the pack is loaded down a ton and there's no kiidney pad on it it can be a bit rough, but compared to other metal frames I've used the LK35 frame is fine. If his experience is with non-metal frames then yeah he's gonna hate it until he gets used to it. The kidney pad completely resolves this issue and it just straps right on.
