>>769987 The map is shit. I live in NM, and there is a lot of /out/ stuff to do here. You just have to be willing to go off of the beaten path. Hell, even staying on the beaten path, we beat most states on /out/ stuff. We have 87 listed mountain ranges for fuck's sake.
How do I make the perfect rat poison from plants I can gather innawoods? I have rats in my house and it's illegal to sell poisons here, so I'm thinking of making my own from plants. What kind of plants are strong enough for this, how do I extract the poison and how do I preserve the stuff so it doesn't go rancid in the bait? I live in Scandinavia and I'm going to use local plants but can stretch myself to use garden plants if anons recommend them. Any /out/ or historical ideas on how to eradicate rats are also good.
cut the bottoms off water bottles to make little water dishes. Fill those "dishes" with Anti-Freeze (its sweet with a bitter after-taste) and leave them around areas the rats are mostly in and wait awhile. Eventually the rats dumb enough to drink it will get poisoned and die. Watch out for your own pets though.
It is time to mourn the loss of this vibrant and free spirited maverick. Lost to the elements of such unforgiving woodlands as Maine we can only hope that in her final hours she found what she was looking for.
RIP Gone but not forgotten Geraldine Largay your family is in my prayers as I also pray that you are safe in heaven
Look into ranitidine. Its marketed as Zantac for stomach acid problems. It works by blocking H1 receptors (anti-histamines block H2) and works a treat for me when used with traditional 24 hour antihistamines.
Have eczema on my lower legs and feet as well as hayfever which it works for as well when I outbreaks out of season.
Also, you'll never get indigestion ;-)
Pro-tip, if you try it, discard the "never take more than 2 75mg pills in 24 hours" nonsense. I've researched this one (I'm 42 and no longer reckless with the shit I put... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>779247 >Which park is most isolated and best to go wild camping in England?
most isolated just has to be one of the scotish ones... proably cairngorms. not that i've ever been there. but fuck, all the rest have pretty large amounts of people nearby and are bound to have more humans wandering about them for that reason alone.
however, i've had some pretty dam good times wild camping in snowdonia and the lakes. you just gotta go find a place with no people there and camp,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>776987 well anon there are in this world people we like to call suckers. They are dumb and they do dumb things, like buy a kit they didn't put together themselves, with materials they didn't cq and test themselves, for triple the cost and half the necessities.
Whatsup /out/ My friends and I have planned a trip for the past 3 months to go to Banff, AB and spend 5 days camping there (3 of hiking 2 of arriving and spending time in neighboring towns)
The group (4 of us) has little hiking experience, unfortunately, but we're planning on taking easy day hike trails like Sunshine Meadows or Lake Louise.
Here's my problem: Everyone in the group is 20, but my parents still express concern for this trip. I know that there's lots of cell phone reception, so I could just activate international calling on my phone.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Only advice I can really give to you is, do it and show them. Also get a cheap bear bell. My first solo hike/camping trip was when I was 12. 14 day hiking trip. 8 Days in and I snapped my leg pretty much making me unable to walk. I ended up crawling back and radioing/calling depends on the way you look at it for military helicopter to come out (closest thing to us) They came out in about 2 hours and located me. I didn't get any reception where I was. Just think about what can happen and do everything to prevent it. Where I was stupid for me to go too. Loads of cliffs and... Comment too long.

>>782355 Were driving from michigan to banff in 3 days. Then 5 days in banff, and then a longer roadtrip where wer stop and camp at national parks (yellowstone badlands glacier) for the night before we get up and drove again. 13 days total.
I guess one question i have atm What are some good resources to brush up on my camping / survival skills? Any books or websites I can look at?
>>782368 I would suggest the SAS Survival Guide by far its the best, check out Far North Bushcraft and Survival's youtube channel. Practice some first aid for the love of god. I saw a guy at a camp site cut his hand with a axe and he ended up bleeding out because he didn't put anything on it. He lived but goddamn. Skills: -First Aid -Fire -Basic safety -Foraging/trapping thats about it to be honest I never have really been in a survival scenario even with a broken leg I didn't really call... Comment too long.

I know this question is out of season but I've got this nice cold weather sleeping bag which is huge when rolled up and in its bag. How can I backpack with the thing? The only way I can think of is tying it onto the outside with rope but this doesn't seem like it would be secure enough
>>782060 Back in the day (early 90s), any remotely serious hiking pack had an assortment of attachment points so you could strap a sleeping bag to the bottom with 2 webbing straps. Or alternately under the lid of a top loader, but a winter bag might be too big for that.
>>782041 The only really big problem I have with them is the amount of sodium they have. Its a ton. I would suggest you find some you like the best and take a few, and pack other food for the rest of the time. I like the Chili Macaroni, Beef Stew, and Rice & chicken (which doesnt have a ton of chicken in it lol). I feel that most of them taste better with a little bit of hot sauce or pepper in them.
TL;DR Stick to one a day, with something else for other meals.
Guys I'm planning to do a 15 day hike to raise money for anti suicide, now, I know we all want me to kill myself but that can wait until after for the delicious irony.
Now here's the thing, rather than a tent I'd rather use a waterproof bivvy bag (it rains a lot in Ireland) but I can't find any for a reasonable price, maybe I'm just a scrub at buying equipment but any help is appreciated. Thanks very much.
>>781308 Eeeeeh it's allright. I'm actually looking with something with more flood, and small edc flashlight like this one don't quite cut it.
But for some fucking reason manufacturer think that if you want to use more than 1 battery you're an insecure compensating dickwaver and only make stupid shit with 2000 lumens in stupid barrel of fuck that's impossible to carry.
Just get that Lil Wayne phone. If it can survive champagne and sizzurp, it can survive a little pond water.
Why not just bring a backpack and get one of those little waterproof cases for your wallet and phone? Used to use those on my jet skis. And then just keep the fish on a stringer or one of those baskets that you keep submerged. Hell, even a 5gal bucket with holes drilled in it and a lid. Tie a rope to it and let that float around with the keepers.

>>779616 I like to use it for things, basically anything. You can use it for so much shit. Most of the time I cut small sections and melt the ends so they don't fray and I often am able to re-use those sections so I hardly waste any. Also, great for boot laces in the middle of the woods.
Fun little experiment I did. I used my bugzooka and went to my sun deck and captured 15 big spiders and they are all in this small tube and I wanted to see what they would do or of they'd just die. It turns out I believe atleast that they are eating each other. I might have sucked in a bit of web too but I'm not sure. Is it normal for them to eat each other? Is it survival of the fittest?
