If you learn morse code and carry a QRP (low power) ham radio, you'll always have some way of getting a signal out. If conditions are right, you can communicate across a continent with the amount of power that's in a candle flame. If you got in trouble and had to send out an SOS, other hams would jizz themselves and stumble over each other trying to respond...assuming they could hear you.

Hell, hams even have protocols to run traffic nets and shuttle "radiograms" about, so you could send a normie friend a telegram from your QRP rig and telegraph key out in the woods.

Or you could just be a normal person, and carry a satellite phone and emergency beacon.

For me the realistic spoop is being back country hiking In bigbend or some other Desert region national park, and losing/damaging my dram 15 miles from a populated area. Ik most of those places don't want you to just ruck about randomly in the park but fuck that I never leave trash and always dig proper firepits or use my little camp stove, so I can be on the other side of a huge ridgeside from 98% of the people that go to the park, and one slip up or stumble could land my water in a cactus or sharp rocks. They say it takes 3 days to die of lack of water, in some places its more like 6 hours if you're hiking.

My other spoop is skinwalkers being resistant to my .300Blk AR when I'm on my friends ranch

Why are so many people scared about being out in the woods. They think the creepy woods people will kill them. I've lived in the woods for a better part of 20 years and never came across someone I was "worried" about.
This bitch goes for a walk in the woods and comes across someones property and walks right up to him with her two dogs.
After turning her cam off she says some shit like "this is real life up here, no youtube offgrid games"

If you owned a boat couldn't you just drop anchor within view of the coast and away from a busy area/shipping lanes until you needed maintenance and not have to pay any mooring fees?
>>
In a bay or natural harbor, yes.
You can't just anchor anywhere on the coast. Do you know what waves are?

File: images.jpg (9 KB, 275x183)

Sure, but you will need at LEAST two adequate anchors and Plenty of scope, (ex:you're in 10' of water at high tide, you want at least 30' of line and at least 10' of chain... All depends on the size of the boat, current, prevailing winds and the type of bottom that you're anchoring in, as you'll need to adjust accordingly.

Until one time she literally chase a fucking squirrel of a cliff. No BS. Squirrel went into a bush between a couple very large rocks. Dog runs up the rock to get to other side. Other side has a 75' drop, near vertical.

Dogs are stupid and can get you in trouble quick. And anyone that wants to say it was just mine and their dog is better behaved.

Prior to this she was a Search and Rescue Service animal. Years of training and service all over CA. But that fucking squirrel owned her that day.

Took the new puppy for his first kayak ride. He fell in once and jumped in thrice. I think he likes the water

Have the possibility of buying an 80 acre ranch in the southwest. Considering it for peace and solitude. Completely off the grid tho so no water or power. What could go wrong?

Didn't want to make a new thread just for this.

Is there anywhere good in the NJ/PA area (I live around Trenton, so I could drive wherever) to go climbing?

I'm an amateur but today I just went on a nice hike and did some climbing on some rocks, wall faces, and large slopped hillsides near Lambertville. It was fun and I'd like to do more of it. But usually where I go there's nothing to actually climb or nowhere really to climb. Yaknow? Should I just go to like a indoor-climbing-wall or something?
>>
>>1321031
I prefer to solo hike. Hiking with friends is fun, but it's a fucking hassle to get them to go. Takes too much planning to just walk around essentially. Wake up early, pick a spot, and just go alone. Bring some water and a small snack if you want and make sure you wear some ok gear. When I hike even if it's hot I prefer to wear some under armor leggings because I dont want bugs and shit crawling on my legs. Some good hiking shoes or boots is a good idea too; something you wont mind getting dirty. And I wear old fingerless gloves when I hike incase I fall over or need to grab some branches or some shit.

You don't need to go with a group, though maybe it would be nice to go with a stranger or two if you use Facebook or something to find them, would get you to meet some new people if you're into that kind of thing.

I'm about to pull the trigger on a Seek Outside hot tent and stove combo and I need to hear others recommendations. I really like the G Stove heat view but i cant justify a 20lb stove. No trip i take has room for 20 extra pounds vs a 7lb shelter system. Any other viable options?

If you only need some heat. Use a rocket stove.

Why do boats have to cost so much to maintain?
Whats the cheapest possible boat to live on for 20-30 years?
Like the most smallest simple liveaboard sailing boat, which hardly ever needs to be fixed for years after you've done the initial fixing up aside from regular maintenance, akin to the old reliable german automobile engineering

Does such a thing even exist or is it just the smaller it is the cheaper it is, theres no indestructible toyota or anything
just seems as though any boat sizeable enough to live on will just keep on sucking thousands from you indefinitely

look literally 2 threads back, you fucking faggot

Hi /out/ I'm from London, england and currently in NYC on a bit of holiday and my flight home leaves in a few hours but I don't want to go home, I want hitchhike to California.

I have always been fascinated with the American outdoors, and have for a long time wanted to do a camping trip cross country. I have only 200$ to spend on camping equipment which I realize is a bit restrictive but I'm not fussy and don't mind sleeping rough. If you could help me manage this in the best way possible to get what I need than I would appreciate it.

I will also be stopping off in multiple states to stay and work on farms so it will be short distances in between week long stop offs

Britbro, please, for me, please go come back to the US. Save up as much as you can and go next spring. Give yourself a few months to get across the country. You need to do this, for those of us who have our lives started and can't, for those of us who are pussies and won't, and for those to come.

I'm proud of you, anon.
