>Firewatch is a single-player first-person mystery set in the Wyoming wilderness, where your only emotional lifeline is the person on the other end of a handheld radio. Anyone else excited for some /out/ vidya?
I am about to close on an off-the-grid cabin in the interior of Alaska.
I have lived in 'town' here for a few years, after immigrating from the midwest. I really want to live out in the bush and this will give me the chance to do that. After saving up money from working fishing boats and cutting timber and oil sites, I can buy this thing and keep enough savings to live off of for a while.
Shit will be expensive. Heat is wood and I am going to try to cook on that, but all gasoline will have to be flown in and I will have to fly in and out for essentials.

Good luck anon. This sounds more interesting than the typical thread like this on here because 99% of the people who post these threads are just dreaming empty dreams and being laughably unrealistic. Good for you for actually thinking this through and working up to it.
Have you looked into an area that is capable of being easily reached by car or boat? It might be more expensive to purchase but cheaper over the long run.
hey /out/doorsmen partiffcularly those in to bass fishing
i live in north east ohio and have always wondered about why bass fishermen are rocking 15, 20, ive eaven met a guy who uses 30 pound mono for bass why? in my area they only get to about 5 pounds, and ive never heard of one over 8, so why are so many bass fishermen using line that breaks at 3-6 times the weight of the fish theyre catching? i mean when im going after smallies im using 4 pound test and ive yet to lose one, and ive never gone after bass with heavier than 10 pound test i mean my heaviest catfish...

>>676747 i mean doesnt it take some of the fun out of fishing if all youre trying to do is get a bite, and you can just rip them out of anything no problem? i mean sometimes i feel like 15 pound test is overkill for the pike around me because it feels like i can just about rip their lips off and swing them out of the water
>>676747 Don't know about 30lbs mono, might be a little bit much but my three set ups are: >50lbs braid - for heavy cover like punching grass mats and getting out of lay downs >30lbs braid - medium cover like lily pads and docks >10lbs fluorocarbon - for cranking / finesse
>>676699 I have friends who play the hell out of it and urge me to buy it. If i can be pursueded to buy it soon then i would support. Actually now that i think of it they play a game called arc too, but they said it has dinos and unrealistic crap.
Im a complete outdoor newfag. so much, that ive never even been camping, ever.
im looking for help in either directing me or just tips on longterm outdoor survival. When i say longterm, i mean by that possibly year or more long. Is it even possible given how the world has changed? im also looking for it to be without any human contact during that time, or minimal, and abscence of modernity. The area that i have fantasized about would be somewhere along the lines of washington, those sorts of forests. But then again, im basing this solely on the looks... Comment too long.

>>676676 i have that planned soon. But for now im wondering if pursuing it makes any sense.
Ive never been camping but i have spent a few months in a hermitage in india. But i lived off of food donations and didnt have to do much aside keeping the fire alive. I definetly liked it, but it was still to much human contact for me.
Different bored EMT. Let me see your First Aid Kit, and I will rate it. Please also provide an explanation of each item (unless self evident like anti-bug bite) Also, pictures are nice.
Don't have a First Aid kit set up? I will be able to help, I can work with almost any price point.

>small fabric balls for wound cleaning I would suggest you use these only to clean minor wounds. With larger wounds, upon arrival to a medical facility (Hospital, trauma center, Stocked Ambulance) the wound will be cleaned thoroughly anyways.

They're like $35 on amazon. You can use all the gmrs and frs channels, and the baofeng with have twice the range of those cheap Walmart radios.
That said, the radio is technically not legal to use on those channels (puts out too much power for frs, and isn't approved for gmrs). 6oud never get caught, ever, unless you were using them at one location every day telling your location (like a business using them for a warehouse).
For simple cheap radios, get a set of "bubble pack' radios. Any brand will work. Get a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Okay guys, I live in Northern MN and I'm looking to go for some sort of winter Camping excursion. I've never really tried it before and it seems somewhat straight forward, however since I never have I want some wisdom before I try anything stupid.
Anything I should know? I have all the gear to be expected from someone who camps plenty in the warm season, what else should I bring?
Anything that commonly gets overlooked when preparing. I'm not going crazy far into the woods or anything but I wanna spend a few days away.
TLDR- my gf left and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
basically more layers in a waterproof sack, and you might want a beefier tent designed for snow load cuz i hear it snows pretty good out there IDK what your sleeping bag is like but check the temperature rating
Get yourself some comfy long underwear, cotton or flannel is fine for cheap otherwise get some nice high tech moisture wicking superfabric. I wear some nike cold weather running tights under everything and sleep in them, it's nice. It will be dark more than summer so bring a good light unless you want to go to bed at 6pm. As cold as it will be you might want to be in bed after dark anyway, so maybe bring a book. Don't kill yourself op you're finally free to go winter camping!
I'm planning to spend my summer holiday in croatia and I want to do some longer hikes there. I've always been quite vulnerable to the sun, how do I protect my head from the sun without looking like a faggot?
>>676213 I also forgot to mention it fold down into a little plastic case that's like 2x the size (2x width, height and length) of a zippo lighter. I put that into my cup with my collapsible spork, a lighter in case the piezo doesn't work, and some extra aluminum foil and made a little aluminum foil lid for it. Pretty compact setup for a solo backpacker
>>676138 >Inflatable Raises concerns about what happens if it is ever punctured (especially if you are sleeping in it or camping in the middle of nowhere). Just get a simple, one-person pole tent and be done with it.
You probably want something more like the coleman instant tents. They keep the supports in place, and you just kinda stretch 'em up like a cover people use at a picnic or tailgating. Quechua makes really easy up tents, like the ones you toss up and they pop into shape, and you just stake it down.
Only advantage I could see from an inflatable tent might be lower total weight. But I don't see it being any faster or easier than some of the more traditional tents.
They seems like a cool idea, but getting a hole in one could ruin the entire tent.
I had a Coleman instant up tent. It was huge, and heavy, but did go up easy. It was not terribly weatherproof. During a really really hard storm, I got wet. So wet I had to abandon the tent at 4AM and go to my truck. I was soaked, and all my stuff was too.
A traditional tent can be really easy to set up if you practice a few times. I don't see how an inflatable is an upgrade.
