What would you do if you were living in an isolated part of the world, surviving on your own with your family(or by yourself) and you one day find out a disease of a disaster of some kind has killed the majority of the population. Would you try and find survivors and figure a way to keep civilization surviving? Would you laugh it off and continue your life in the middle of nowhere?

Why are you even living off the grid? what would your reasoning for this lifestyle be? What part of the world would you live in and why? Would you move after the disaster to somewhere more hospitable? What would you do with all your free time?

>living in an isolated part of the world, when disease / disaster kills majority of population
>try and find survivors ... keep civilization going?
Nope. Civilization isn't very, um, civilized. I'd prolly just laugh it off and continue to live as I had been until dying of old age or wildlife attack.

>why living off grid?
Because fuck people, stupid people especially. In this day and age, the population of stupid people is skyrocketing because somedumbshit keeps passing laws to protect them. Protecting. Stupid. People. Is. A. Terrible. Idea.
>what part of the world / why?
Somewhere in Wyoming or one of the Dakotas, because less people.
>would you move to somewhere more hospitable?
Not if I already had my homestead set with the details worked out. If I had achieved homeostasis before the majority of the population keeled over, I'd probably just stay there.
>what would you do with all your free time?
I don't think you're overly familiar with off-the-grid / homesteading lifestyle. Free time is merely time used to improve one's way of life, as opposed to time that must be spent to maintain one's way of life.
Know that now no one will bother me.
Would just smile, knowing natural selection finely balanced out nature.

fellow sc/out/s

does anyone have experience with these? I haven’t really been able to find much out there on Youtube compared to other outdoor gear really.

It's a nice concept for a shelter you can throw up in seconds and without need for being able to peg it down.

I'd be interested to hear of anyone using one successfully overnight as a shelter in place of a tarp/tent, and to how well they bear up in regular use- if it's shitty thin material, or decent stuff that will stand up to more than a few semi-emergency uses

People pay 50 bucks for a coated nylon bag?

I really need to get into the survival gear business, damn.

this is why I am wary about buying, you can pick them up for as little as about £20, but the 'premium brands' can go up as far as about £90
I have teh one pictured, got it for about £10 on ebay, didn't expect to win it at that price.

not used it for real, haven't needed to yet, most i've done is get it out in the house and sit in it with the gf. it seems like a good little emergency device, or a nice place to stop for lunch on exposed mountain top if the weather is horrible. seemed to warm up pretty quick in there too, though like i say i've only tried it in the house. it comes with me on walks where the weather might turn nasty.

My down sleeping bag is smelling a bit funky.
Should I wash it or just air it out?

Some tips on how to wash/care for my down sleeping bag would be helpfull.

it's important to do everything you can to avoid having to wash you down or synthetic sleebin bag. use a liner, don't put it directly on the ground ever, don't go into it with bare skin ever, no peeing the bed, no sweaty sex, no shitting/cumming in there either, no snuggling with pets (specially dogs), no packing/storing the sleeping bag unless it's 100% dry (this means hanging it up to air-out/dry for at least a day or two after EVERY camping trip). dont' keep it in long-term storage without occasionally airing it out and fluffing it up to reloft the...

Go to laundramat and use one of those fuck huge front loading machines on the gentlest cycle available. Purchase one of several available commercial products for the purpose of washing down items. I use nikwax. Suspend flat to dry, preferably outside on sunny day. Do not lay on the ground to dry unless you have no choice. Drape across two or more clotheslines is preferable. Do nothing with your bag until you are sure it is completely dry inside and out.
Don't forget to put it in the dryer with a few tennis balls.

Powell's don't like talking about things that involve chainsaws and other power tools around here....

This is my saw when I bought it. Stihl MS362 C-M
I've got a Husqvarna 235.
Pretty reliable machine, but the chain stopped Lubricating itself properly, guessing something is clogged up.
Gonna tear it down, clean it up and soak it in diesel

I finally got my Darche Ranger Solo.

If you're rolling it up with bedding inside it'll look chunkier, so long as you can roll the cunt up and gets the straps around it that's all that matters

Unpopular opinions and gear choices.

I prefer corona saws to bahco.

I like moras but will never carry one because I would not trust my life to it.

I like quality tomahawks Inna woods over hatchets

I use bank line instead of paracord

would be interested in trying a corona but availability here in the uk sucks sucks, about the only readily availabe folding saws froma hardware store are shitty unbranded ones or are fiskars, you've got to shop around for a bacho- the closest place I know shop wise where you can walk in and buy one is like 70 miles away
>I would not trust my life to it.

Because of the plastic grips?

stickers came in. I thought I'd put the pic up and get feedback as a start. If there's a decent interest we can order some up. I think I may have gone too small on them. I'd think 0.5 inch on the circular ones and maybe an inch more on the shield ones.

let me know what your thoughts are an if interested how many of each. It's a starting point.

I like them!
oh yeah,

so the bear circle one on the left is one of the original stickers from the first patch run. I'm thinking to get the size larger for consistency.

The printing quality was on par in this run. I'd guage it as semi-professional looking. I don't like that I can see the printer's dots but even the original run stickers had that going on so it seems unavoidable. Download the pic above and view it zoomed and you'll see what I'm talking about.

So my dad introduced me to fly fishing and I'm hooked, planning on getting a good rod, I've been told Fenwick is one of the best. Advice?
25 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.
Reddington. Good rods at reasonable prices. What kinda fishing will you be doing? Dry fly? Nymphing? Using big streamers? This will determine what WT rod you need. A good all around setup is a 9 ft 6wt with a weight foward floating flyline.
I'm actually pretty new to it so I'm not familiar with the terminology yet, the fly I have been using is small with hairs, and is meant to sink, have only caught salmon with it.
Dry flying is best flying

Hey /out/, im in need of a new knife. Hopefully staying under 50$. Im leaning towards pic related. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Go for it. My stainless steel Mora is my most used fixed blade knife. They come really sharp and work great.
Got that exact knife in the mail the other day, seems great but mine came with a shit grind (fingers brushing to check visibly rolled edge lol). After a bit of work sharpening and testing seems to hold well enough, sheath is great, go for it and enjoy.
Mora is one of the best you can get for the money.
Make sure to keep it clean though , I know mine tries to corrode any chance it gets.
Also, for the love of god, keep the original scandi grind. When you're sharpening lay it flat along the entire edge. I've seen a good many flat ground knives ruined by incorrect sharpening.

Is spear fishing (with a spear gun) considered unsportsmanlike if you're using scuba gear? Is free-diving the only 'real' way to do it? I'd like to get into it and am PADI cert but I can't hold my breath for more than 30 seconds. I know that you can work dynamic apnea skills but combining scuba with hunting seems fun
