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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.
Hey guys didnt know if i post this here but i live in California USA i have been thinking about moveing to the uk. Im a tow truck driver here. Could i get a work visa and apply for jobs out there and the take a plane. Also because the love the environment there would go camping like i try to do here but sucks
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.
I figured this isn't a /k/ thing so i came over to /out/ to get your opinion. I want an innawoods gloves, that is affordable (20$ or less) but i've come to a cross road What glove is the best /out/ glove in terms of dexterity and the ability to do precise tasks whilst still wearing said glove, while also still being able to protect your hands from the elements?
>>675729 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.
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.
>>675735 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.
>>675808 Does that have an input to plug a mic into? Something like that, plus a decent microphone made... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>675392 lots of protein in pouch or small can form (chiggin/tuna/herring/sardines/salmon/cocktail weenies, SPAM singles, etc), a jar of applesauce per day, nuts & chocolate. dehydrated soup and/or pasta packets for din-din, vitamins, coffee/tea, pic related full of eggiwegs if you got the balls
Anyone else kind of get depressed during winter? I mean, I fish and catch little to nothing. There's not much to hunt. What the fuck am I supposed to do. I'm so bored. I wanted to ice fish, but frozen lakes around here wont support my weight.
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.
whats your fav /out/ show? Any specific moments come to mind?
>>675296 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.
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.
