Daily reminder that even our king says that there is not a knife made that can perform as well as a hatchet while /out/.
Daily reminder that even our king says that there is not an orange made that can perform as well as an apple while baking apple pie.
that's not les, bear, proenneke, beard, aflie, or mears. so chut up or gtfo or both
>Doesn't recognize our king
But after all he's just a king, and he knows it. Do you know the story of King Canute and the waves?
That shitlord is not even remotely /out/. He's a religious zelot who does wood working and minor homesteding videos.
I don't think he's done ONE fucking camping video of any type.
He MIGHT be DIY related, but he doesn't belong in /out/ at all. Let alone as "king".
To be fair to the guy, he rarely pushes the Jebus stuff on his regular video's, and when he does I just don't watch or skip along to where he gets back to something I enjoy, I do find his constant moaning about everything modern is shit and everything back in the day was great a bit of a drag.
Come on now, just because his beliefs about the fundamental nature of existence are based on evidenceless unfalsifiable mythology doesn't mean his axe reviews aren't rooted in first had fact.
Its one thing to believe in god, to even be a christian , but to actually be a churchgoer to the point of making videos about church is a sure sign of a complete assclown.
Fuck that guy to be tbh family.
I've seen his house on Bing Maps (for some reason Google doesn't cover his area). He's probably twenty five miles by road from the nearest actual town (White Salmon, WA). So not actual off the grid homesteading but in the winter they probably get cut off from civilization on occasion.
>That wart faced ugly ass psycho autist wifebeater shill is our king
Ray Mears is forever our king and saviour.
Fuck right off, go outside and reconsider your life.
Yeah the guy is definitely an assclown.
There are a handful of sunday school /out/ teens that think he is a "cool" christian.
I couldn't care less about what he believes or what he does with his own "fora" to speak about, I'm just saying this guy should in no way be king of an outdoors board. Of course, most of the users here are people that walk out onto their suburban lawn and have a small fire (within HOA regulations) in their fire pit. Maybe hot dogs are involved, maybe not.
It's like people that go on /ck/ and only eat microwaved shit or fast food. Why are half of you fucks even here?
Hes right butthe difference isnt significant if you are camping for am extended time and you dont bring tools like a hatchet then youre dumb as hell but shorter stays you just need a solid batoning knife
Mears just seems like he's got nothing to prove, and that's exactly what I want in my /out/.
Totally chill guy.
Pic related, me and The King.
>A hatchet chops better then an big survival knife
Well yeah but I can baton faster with a big knife plus my pack is already 50lbs, the hatchet doesn't bring enough over a big knife to take the extra weight.
Really bro you think you can split wood faster by batoning vs splitting it with a hatchet??? That's outrageous
Is that actually you with Ray mears? How was he? Looks cosy
He was really cool. Just a guy completely at ease with himself. Very respectful toward people, no ego. Everything he told us about, be it tool, techniques or terrain, came with a story of it's origin & history.
Cups of tea round the fire while he taught us to carve spoons with an axe.
He's great with an axe and homesteading shit but he really doesn't do much in the way of bushcrafting, so he hardly qualifies as king of /out/ unless you are an axe autist/sperglord/fetsishist.
I'd argue that Dave Canterbury is more of the real deal, he can do the homesteading stuff and the bushcrafting stuff too.
And what the fuck is up with his "dust bowl" ear wife and 19th century ghost child son.
They're home schooling that pasty little shit to become a serial killer
There are three main subsections of /out/:
>wrangerstar homestead types
>mors kochanski bushcraft types
>ultralight adventure camp types
Just because you don't happen to be a wrangerstar type doesn't mean people who are are autists. You're arguably more autistic for taking issue with this thread, autist.
>Who do you have in mind that is better and more recognized than him, then?
I agree with that totally, but I'm talking about people who are still alive and actively producing content.
>Who do you have in mind that is better and more recognized than him, then?
Arguably Dave Canterbury is a better choice, he puts out way more content on a lot more subjects and he is on TV, he may not appeal to the axe junkies and home steading crowd as much but he covers more bases than almost anybody you care to name.
I freely admit that I don't know a great deal about Mors but from what I've seen he really only cover the bushcraft stuff, Dave Canterbury (DC) covers that and blacksmithing, weapons and trapping, if you are looking for an all rounder then he is much closer to it than anybody else, Cody (Wranglerstar) really only covers the homesteading stuff, he doesn't do any camping of bushcraft at all from what I've seen.
There might be a more skilled bushcraft expert living in far Siberia, someone we have never heard of, but of all we know about Mors Kochanski is the best.
I like Dave and his videos are not that bad, but why to compare him to Mors? There are (tens of) thousands of people like Dave but there are not many like Mors. His collection of books alone is insane and it covers more than just survival skills.
>(DC) covers that and blacksmithing, weapons and trapping
I bet Mors knows more about blacksmithing and trapping than Dave ever will. Dave might know more about guns, but who knows and what does it have to do with /out/ anyway.
Cody is a hipster fondling his macs. Not very /out/ tbh.
I know Mors is old and not in the best of health but even back in the day he wasn't producing much in the way of content, he has like a handful of (amazing well written and useful) books while DC and even Cody are pumping out tons of content every year, DC has 985 videos and Cody has 1160, on content alone they are blowing Mors out of the water.
>DC and even Cody are pumping out tons of content every year
Watching most of that content is complete waste of time. The thing I dislike the most is the way they act, like they know everything about the subject, lol. Well, Dave at least is serious about the stuff he teaches.
I like bushcraftbartons, that's my favourite /out/ channel.
Are you saying that DC's and Cody's content is no good!?
Also if I'm shilling for anybody it would be DC, and by using the term shilling to describe what is a discussion it's clear to me that you just want to shut down that discussion because you can't back up your argument, I mean if I were to use your tactics I would accuse you of sucking Mors cock and being wilfully blind to any other possibilities, if you are an honest actor then present some facts, show me where Mors has covered more than just bushcraft, where is his homesteading book/video, where is his blacksmithing stuff, where is his weapons stuff?
Personally I'm all for a balanced approach and learning from everybody but the premise of this thread is that Cody is the true embodiment of /out/ and I disagree with that.
So your dislike is more to do with style than content, I get it, there are people out there who know their shit but I don't like them as people, but sometimes we have to listen to them anyway to learn what they know regardless of whether we like them or not, it's called being a grown up
I am saying /out/ does not need a king and yes, these youtubers are assclowns and I am sick of seeing their content flogged here.
I am not going to mount an argument specifically showing their idiocy because that would give them far too much credit.
They do not even deserve a good debunking.
Read a fucking book anon, youtube a shit.
That's not what is annoying about his videos. In fact, every single "bushcraft" video has about ten years of unnecessary content that could be removed and the video wouldn't suffer in the slightest.
The only good thing to come from Barton is my knowledge of the French guy Billy. He's very interesting.
If you are bored one day, look up WranglerBarn. That was Cody's name before he switched to Wranglerstar. Under the old name he apparently was an anti-government prepper. You can still hear hints of his old self in his current videos but judging from the hostile reactions from some of his former WranglerBarn associates, he used to be really hardcore about it. He scoured most references to WranglerBarn and all of the videos from the net but those belonging to others remain.
I think part of the reason why he tries (rather poorly) to keep his name and location secret is due to the anger in the prepper community of him leaving them and moving on to promoting homesteading instead.
I'm surprised the guy has a mustard with a name like "French's".
It's creepy how Cody has changed. He's either schizophrenic or his Wranglerstar character is all fake. Recently he mentioned the open carry thing that was so important to him before and called it "a phase".
My guess is he realized how counterproductive it was to prep and then show it all on Youtube. He's still prepping, but on Youtube he's "homesteading", whatever that means. Or maybe he's just trying to make a living, knowing faggotry is the thing right now.
I'm posting here, because I just stopped watching Wrangerstar. I had my first doubts when he released a video titled
>My Favourite Youtuber? : Casey Neistat
but yesterday when I saw him going to Apple store, I stopped the video and realized that I'm watching a complete faggot, fake or not.
He probably noticed that its much more lucrative to appeal to a much larger audience. Preppers are hardcore but small in number. His homesteading persona appeals to not only homesteaders but also those who dream of someday living the country life.
He pushes the "everything was better in the olden days" message pretty hard too, it seems to play well with the wannabe hicks and luddites, maybe it's just me but it feels a bit cunty to be on the internet making money by constantly claiming everything modern is shitty.
People are dissatisfied with modern culture. He's tapping into that. But yeah, he should try podcasting on an Apple II if he thinks the old days were better for everything.
As an aside, his sister isn't bad looking for a middle age woman. Her channel actually has some good /out/ content on it.
>Who is she?
The one woman on The Island with Bear Piss Drinker to not totally suck at /out/.
>His kid is smart
If he read a lot and has internet access, he'll figure it out.
Saw several reviews of his business selling used parts for Jeep Wranglers where people claimed he ripped them off with the wrong part or a defective one. Might explain his paranoia about his house being easy to see from the road.
If this guy and Ray aren't your kings, then there is something seriously wrong with you. They are the comfiest of comfy /out/ bros. Quiet, unassuming, do their thing and know their shit.
It's not even a question, and if it is to you, you forgot what /out/ is about.
I get that feeling too but I've always put it down to him being a bible basher, they are always creepy
He had another YT channel called wranglerbarn which was a prepping channel from what I've heard, I think he was not well liked back then and he has since killed that channel and removed all the old videos, but some of the response video's still remain, the reason he is paranoid about his location is because it was (allegedly) robbed before he had fully moved in there and some equipment went missing, I find I enjoy fewer of his videos now than I did to begin with, he bores me with his endless shit about the good old days.
Think he's simply run out of things to say so he has to raid the past for ideas. His sister's channel, "The Fresh P", has a good variety of content though is often hippy or female stuff. Sometimes she gets on camera mildly drunk, slurring her speech and looking glassy eyed.
I still watch him but I tend to skip through the bits where he is jerking off over old time tools, I liked the video's where he restored some old tools and where he was milling lumber but I skip a lot of his other boring stuff.
Excuse me sir, do you have time to talk about our Lord and Savior, Wranglerstar?
>Someone more manly
>tfw I am a bald handsome hairy fuck
If she's anything like her brother there's no chance of that happening.
She looks good but I bet her pussy is wrinkly as fuck and smells like broth.
