I will be leaving my life behind and going to new york on my bicycle. I will only be bringing myself, and a backpack. I have no money or housing, I will sleep where I lay down. I am in San Diego, so it will take me several weeks. What should I do to prepare for this journey? What should I bring?

Just letting know that for my pseudo-composting I will use used coffee grounds and used herbs from tea bags. They are not the most natural thing, but, well, who knows. Posting so I can get opinions (inb4 you are an idiot).

>>424581 It's not gonna work if you don't already have plenty of /out/ experience with long trekking trips, being /out/ in winter for extended periods of time and most importantly having a seriously firm grasp on plant foraging, farming, and hunting. How do you expect to stay hidden when you hunt and farm? How do you expect to survive without hunting and farming?
The thought of being abducted by aliens when i'm innawoods & alone terrifies me. I also find it equally terrifying if I was to be abducted and whoever I was with didn't wake up while it was happening. Completely irrational I know....or is it? If you watch the skies long enough you see some odd shit.

I once camped on a small flat section of a pretty steep hill. On the way up there I encountered two big red deer, and because the trail was pretty much the only place to walk on because of the steepness, both me and the deer became somewhat stressed. On of them turned around and walked back the way it came, the other ran past me.
That night I feared being trampled by them, seeing as there was not much place for them to move, and I was pretty hidden (not in a tent), so they could step on me by mistake.
Other than that I don't think I have ever feared getting... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

The first step is selecting a good tree. This is a step I perhaps failed to do well enough. There have been a variety of trees used for bows throughout history, many of which provide the necessary characteristics. Common examples in America include ash, osage orange, oak, and walnut.
Yew was traditionally used in English longbows, but is generally not ideal for American flatbows due to the difference in design. English longbows typically have a round, D shaped body where the flat back of the bow is formed by a single ring of sapwood while the interior belly was formed... Comment too long.

But enough about longbows. I chose an ash tree because it was easy to identify and one of the first that I found that seemed straight. It's important to examine the tree for knots, bulbous or twisted sections, or anything else that may suggest the underlying wood is flawed.
Unfortunately, while downing this tree (using an admittedly improper tool) I broke my hand axe. Once the tree is downed, you should cut the straightest part from the tree with your saw, about 8 feet in length.
Examine the log you now have, look at the grain, see if it's even or uneven. My log had the grain very off center at one end and wasn't as straight as it appeared when it was part of the tree. I worked with it regardless. It caused me some issues down the line.
Now strip the log of bark, being careful not to damage the underlying hard rings of wood underneath. If you do, it will only make it harder for you.
Before we begin, let's remind ourselves of two things.
1) You are anonymous. Don't let your ego get involved. If you have something to share, share it. If you don't want to be ridiculed, that's understandable, but just put your experience out and ignore the trolls if you can, your input is appreciated.
2) This isn't /x/, please don't point us to /x/, /x/ is full of children who haven't spent any time innawoods or even outside. Real outdoorsmen are who I personally want to speak with about this matter.

I'm a Montanan. I've done plenty of hunting camping fishing etc. I live at the foothills of the rockies in an area with tons of peaks, lakes, rivers etc.
Me and my family went camping at a nearby lake which you have to hike 15-20 minutes to reach. It's certainly not the most remote lake, but there was nobody there when we arrived and set up tent.
This lake area has a beautiful view on the opposite side of the entrance which is comprised of limestone cliffs, caves, and chutes leading directly up into the back-end of the mountains. Anything from the most remote reaches of the wilderness areas beyond the mountains can easily pass down to the lake.
While the sun started to set, I was gathering more firewood. When I came back my little brother said he was hearing something like a "truck" or engine rumbling in the woods, but there are no vehicle accessible roads so I'm not sure what he heard.
My Dad was with us and he had his pistol out, he didn't say anything but I saw a look on his face like he was uncomfortable. He shot into the woods to scare away any bears etc. He acted like he was playing around but I could tell he was legitimately trying to clear the area by making noise, and he didn't want to spook my little brother by saying so.
As it darkened, we heard someone or something start coming down the hillside behind us, not from the mountains, but from a thickly forested hillside that reached out around the lake, connected to the mountains.
Something was coming down through the pine trees and deliberately snapping thick branches every 20 steps or so. I've encountered grizzlies, we know about bears, they tend to just bulldoze through the woods and snap the shit out of everything. This sounded more like someone deliberately breaking thick branches. They got closer and closer.
By this time me and my family were dead silent and just staring into the woods. Me and my Dad readied our weapons and stood up. We were expecting a Grizzly.
