>>607293 Been hiking and camping shitloads my entire life all over Montana/Washington/Wyoming and have never seen anything more than tracks. Motherfuckers stay out of sight. Completely alright with me.
I was just south of big sur. A guy i met on the bus out there said he would show me a cool spot. I didnt like it and wanted to sleep on the beach. I figured the beach was just over the ridge so i keep hiking. The trail keeps switching back and the sun is getting low so i cut through an opening that appears to lead to the ridge. I end up in someones back yard. Oops. I keep going...another persons back yard, then another, then another, and another. The sun is now setting and i'm not walking at night. I find myself in an open area between somebody's property and a group... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I keep banging the tire and throw some sticks over towards it, it stays motionless and silent. I slowly back down the slope to the private road near the rv campers and spend the next two hours with my back to a tree. Whatever it was didnt follow me. It was big enough to crack a stick and it didnt run when i popped up. I am almost positive it was a mountain lion. Either that or a human, but i really dont think a human would have tried to sneak up on me like that because i was practically invisible from where... Comment too long.

Hello, /out/. Forgive me if this is an usual kind of shitposting this board gets since this is the first post i do in this board, but since there is a shit ton of controversies and people arguing about what to do and not to do in a survival scenario contradicts what some people say, is there any kind of tip or rulebook that has been confirmed to have the least amount of facts that has been proved wrong, or, in general, to be the most correct?
Pic related, ive seen no one so far talk bad about the SAS survival guide.
>>607171 >that has been confirmed to have the least amount of facts that has been proved wrong confirmed or proved wrong by whom?
I personally didn't find this book very useful. Almost everything in it is either obvious, or explained too superficially to be useful in practice. I spotted a few "facts" I most certainly don't agree with.
John Wiseman's book is by no means a bad book, but it claims to be the ultimate guide to surviving anywhere, and it's not.

>>606025 Paracord is literally a meme cordage. Why anyone would pay that much money for cordage that they are going to dispose of boggles my mind.
Not to mention that it is heavy and it takes up a TON of volume.
I usually carry a small length of thin bank line for when I really need strength, but aside from that, I just use a natural fiber twine as it is cheap, lightweight, and is low volume. The stuff is practically free.
But yeah get paracord if you like to make cute bracelets and jewelry to impress your... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>605911 You can still do big game hunting with those criteria. Cape buffalo is least concerned and hunting those is both dangerous and rewarding, plus you are injecting a serious amount of money into the local economy by doing one of those hunts.
hi /out/. I've never been here before; please be kind.
Looking to rent a cheap wood furnace cabin in the middle of nowhere (ideally in the New England area, but I can move around) for a literary month of isolation. Anyone have any recommendations, advice, experiences with similar endeavors?
pic unrelated because I don't really know what's contemporary on this site anymore.
Do you have any experience outdoors? Have you ever been camping? What food are you going to bring? Is it near water or do you have to bring a month worth of water? What are you going to do for fun? Why are you doing this?
>>605461 >Why are you doing this? did you read his post?
>>605427 OP I'd look up airbnb type accomodations, you can get some off the grid style cabins and stuff through there, which can be nice. no idea whether its possible in your part of the world though. dont know how "isolated" you're actually wanting to be. but if youre there for a whole month, it'd be good to get a place in the woods but near enough to a small...

>>605472 I'm actually primarily going to be reading and maybe keeping a journal. I picked up 14 boxes of books for free off a dude on craigslist and I want some time just for tearing through them.
So, in regards to electricity, I can work without it. My accommodations would be ideal if the main light source was candles and my only sources of heat being a wood stove/furnace. Just wanna read and chop wood.
My friend and I are going on a road trip to Nevada and possibly California. Do any of you guys have any suggestions for abandoned places we can explore? We're coming down from Alberta and are looking for some really cool places, like airplane boneyards or power plants, cool shit that Canada is lacking, though any suggestion is welcome.
