I feel like starting a hobby of gold prospecting. I feel like knowing the equipment is easy and even finding gold but hard part is finding a place to look for gold, as well as asking permission to use private land, using the BLM records, staking claims and all that.

I live in Northen Virginia and my peliminary research pretty much states the first gold mining in the US was actually done right here on foot hills edges of the Shanendoha.

I was doing some test panning in the upper Potomac at a friends house and found a few flakes a month ago but nothing really worth...

sounds like you know this, but mineral rights are a serious fucking deal, so do your research before you step on someone's goes. claims are a matter of public record, but i don't know where to get them. start at the county building, maybe? they could probably at least tell you where you need to go to find out.

Easy as fuck to make, tastes good, high in cals and protein.
Kinda feel like this is a lost cause. Everything that tastes good either needs a lot of stuff to be carried around with you or takes a lot of energy (regarding stoves with gas cartridges).
I prefer either making a real fire to make pasta or ready made food like pic related: tastes good, leightweight, fast to make.
Pasta, rice and oats are always great.

This is out of your price range (80 dollars and up), but the Marmot Randonnee glove is the best cold weather glove I've ever used that still has good dexterity. I've tried on tons.

But if you live somewhere with warmer winters you don't need something that good.
I live in Michigan so the winter's can get pretty hectic here. I've had gloves like those for winter before, but they had literally froze on me! The rubber grips and outer layer had frozen over the day of me using them.
Had to hang them over the fire just to thaw at the end of the night.
Have you had any experiences like that with the Marmot's?

What are some /out/ appoved instruments in the backcountry? i would like to get a native flute for nights around the fire. what are some bushcraft instruments that can be put together on your downtime?

Hi /out/ hopefully this is an acceptable thread here.

I've been interested in wildlife/nature sounds recording for some time and I really don't know anything about it.
For what I've understood the equipment isn't too big or heavy so it'd be easy to carry and record when out.

Would love to hear if someone does this and has some tips on the topic.

you should go to /mu/. they probably have something to recommend you there
just be aware we're one of the most awful boards ever. good luck tho desu
For what it's worth I've got a little Tascam sound recorder, pic related. It's got a lot of bells and whistles which I don't know how to use but it's light as a feather. It cost $100 so I assume it's good. Recordings turn out quiet as fuck, though, I guess it's meant to be held right next to a sound source. It's fine once you crank up the decibels in Audacity. No idea what you're supposed to use for nature recordings, but this is a decent all-rounder.

Please, don't do this. /mu/ is a terrible, terrible place.

There is some anon that has tons of awesome nature recordings. You need a couple nice mics I'm sure, or at least not total garbage. I know the one anon actually made his own microphone as well, but I'm sure you need some knowledge of how it all works to build stuff successfully.

Does that have an input to plug a mic into? Something like that, plus a decent microphone made...

They're honestly stupid. If you want boots get boots with real soles. If you want athletic shoes, wear running shoes

get actual hiking boots
not fashion boots
NIKE SFB are not allowed to be used by soldiers because they fuck up feet
Met a lot of guys that swear by them for rucking but I don't really like them. No real ankle support. Just tall running shoes.

They're really cheap right now, but I think they just came out with a new generation that's better quality.

Hey /out/, /k/ here.
Would combat-style boots such as pic be used in lieu of actual hiking boots? Or should I bite my lip, spread my wallet, and let go of my dreams of going full STALKER innawoods?

With good insoles maybe but I fear for your feet regardless depending how far you go. Might want to waterproof them too.
Also have fun slipping in mud when it rains.

If you're going to get combat boots at least get something decent.

for me its wildboys. These guys went straight into the wilderness, engaged the most dangerous animals, pet wild jaguars, got attacked by lionesses, got tattoos from tribes, purposely got bit and stung by everything that kills people.
Tho they act like idiots and did stupidly dangerous stuff, but they got endless stories and experiences; just one of their eps has more shit than most people do in their lives. i wouldnt do most it, but they came out alright and i got mad respect.

Les Stroud is the only one I can really tolerate as far as survival stuff goes. That "Dual Survival" show had me watching for a season when it first came out, but I really didn't follow it after that.

I mostly just watch cartoons and SportsCenter.

What's the cheapest type of housing that would allow one to still have minimal electric power + Internet?
Would building a small cabin, and using solar panels, as well as mobile Internet the cheapest?

If you want to know how to do it cheap, look at how developing countries do it. You can see huts made of debris, wood and metal sheets in every ghetto around the globe. If you want to keep it sustainable and long-lasting, a log cabin would be the best solution.
Earthbag house?
ive heard of people using styrofoam for housing, for its insulator properties and ease of use
