Hey there bepis

Having the bottle opener on the end of the saw like that is just begging to have the mechanism snapped

This is SO bad.

They say seeing mountain lions is a rare although sometimes people do see them, they see and hear you before you see them. Even bears are stealthy for their size and will conceal themselves when they're in ambush mode. Now pair that with a bigfoot that has far superior eyesight, smell and hearing than bear, cougar and humans combined. You got yourself a giant forest ninja who move in groups. They say if you see one, there's atleast 3 or 4 watching you. As for "oh someone would find a body or skeleton", these creatures would either bury or possibly cannibalize the deceased and probably would smash the bones to eat the marrow leaving the rest to be chewed up by critters on the forest floor.

Trail cams, have you ever noticed that fauna always seem to look directly at the camera? That's because they smell or hear the camera, and even for the silent ones there's a possibility of noise emittted that the human ear cannot pick up or just that they notice something new in their environment. Bigfoot whatever, they're not dumb creatures.

I went down in the winter and it was fine, some places were really hot, Like 100+F. Most of the lights worked, but there were whole section that were dark so bring a flashlight. Worker do go down there so it might be a good idea to go down in the evening.
What the fuck is in that canister and do you want to be in the same room with it?
I didn't open it, but I'd assume some radioactive waist. Probably fine to be in that room for a minute. It used be full of those canisters, guess they forgot one when they cleaned it out.

Before I can sell this house I have to empty it and holy shit there is so much stuff. I just want to climb into my RV and drive away and leave it, but I need the money from the sale of the house to be my nest egg when I go full time.

Move into roughly 160 square feet of space and hit the road. Full time traveler in my RV. I'll have a sizeable nest egg and will work camp in the mean time. Can't fucking wait.

Gee billy, 3 knives?
One is a multitool which is like half a knife.
God I want to cook outside but the only seasons I ever go camping are always one never-ending burn bans

Or if you're going to be camping nearby your car it's easier to hike back with any food & condiments and lock them in the trunk
While i agree that 3 knives for cooking seems excessive, we can probably assume that theres more than 2 people there to eat.

3 Knives isn't an unusual number to take /out/ if youre going deeper than a 2 day trip. A main "survival" knife, a beater knife and a jacknife are essentials for sustainable bushcraft. Add an axe and a folding saw for additional site construction.

Heres my blade tools for example in order with above.

My completed kit weighs only 16kg with water and 1 days emergency food. And i want for nothing when i'm out there.

Quads don't lie but what's the deal with all that ifak on an ankle holster and that belt? Are you a spook?
Regardless of that I like the way you roll, also you should keep that small, fixed blade knife, it looks cools as fuck.
It's a dpx hostile environment survival tool. Used it pretty hard for the last 7 or 8 years. Sheath is aftermarket, but a great blade that now resides on my plate carrier.

As for a ifak, its important to carry things that can plug holes if you carry things that can create holes.

You're always gonna have your belt on you so why not stack the cards in your favor and keep a baseline of items that can bail you out.

My favorite camping spot was shutdown because too many teens would go there to party so yeah, drink but respect the environment and others around you.
What kind of blankets are they though? Are they supposed to be unzipped sleeping bags?
>not calling her Miss Chug like the guys at the liquor store
I think that'd be gubigubi-chan in Japanese.
Depends on multiple things. Weather/temperature outside, material tent is made from, how large it is, etc.
Just unzip a fucking window, it's not like the cloth walls are masking any sound so keeping a window partially open shouldn't be an issue.

What would be your ideal home if you had the land and the means to construct one depending on region, cost, maintenance, and needs?

Personally i'd love the idea of a hobbit hole, but i would be worried about the weight of the soil during a heavy rain. Ideally I would go for a log cabin but with a daubed and limewashed exterior and/or interior.

So ?out?, what have ye?

What do yall have against canisters? A large butane canister costs $5 and will I usually good for 3 weeks to a month eating hot food twice a day and coffee or hot chocolate at lunch. If it doesn't last this long you are probably cooking with it instead of just heating. Pasta I will just add to the boiling water turn off the stove and put the lid on, rice only needs like two minutes of boiling before giving it the same treatment. Don't boil more water than you need and don't heat your water more than you have to ie don't boil water for instant coffee, just get it hot.

I use a canister stove mostly because it's fast, when I set up camp I can have my food cooked by the time I have my tent up, which is less than 3 minutes, liquid fuel stoves take way longer not just in cooking time but in setup and take down.
>had pair of boots that fit great and I liked a lot
>they got beat up so I bought another pair, same exact model and size
>Hike in them
>Heels get torn to shit

How the fuck does this shit work? Is that something the magical process of breaking in is going to fix? I don't get why this happened or why walking in them more would food it.
>$5 for a month of stove use
Your numbers seem way off. Where are you getting even small canisters for $5?

450 g of isobutane/propane fuel is just enough to bring 45 liters of water to a boil. Hardly enough to last a month of use twice a day + beverages.

>liquid fuel stoves take way longer not just in cooking time but in setup and take down

Eh, priming does take a minute, but once it's primed a liquid fuel stove cooks as fast or faster than a canister stove. Meanwhile, a canister stove won't even work in cold weather. I've never been in such a rush /out/ that I didn't have the extra minute to prime.

I have been in the fortunate position to get /out/ the last few years, so I'll post some happy pix. I still don't have my quiet cabin, but I get out to great places regularly.

Can I get some recommendations for entry level hiking&/out/ boots?

All other boot questions welcome to hijack this thread.

Literally wearing these right now, would never use them for hiking. Got some Alpina Trackers for anything serious. I'm on my second sole for the Earthkeepers and they've lasted me well, nothing serious though. Most strenuous thing I've used them for was climbing Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh.
What's best for operating in the jungles of Vietnam? Expect lots of mud
Something vented to drain water, don't get vibram sole (too slippy)
Skip the goretex because it takes days to dry without a constant firepit or radiator, just get quick-dry boots
Boots over sandals or open toe shoes, since you're much better having just one load of water rather than filtering 10000 litres of filthy water past your feet every day
Oh and wear leggings under your shorts to protect from leeches, I don't care if you think it's gay. Try it and you won't go back.
And unironically, trekking poles can really help in mud if you have your gun on your back - your pack will be heavy with gun+ammo, so you'll be thankful for the extra points of contact when you're top heavy and navigating slippery logs and rocks and muddy embankments. Don't cheap out and get 1 pole, get 2 or you'll experience spinal torque, postural imbalance and shoulder/wrist strain which will affect shooting.
Hammocks are best
Step ON not OVER logs to give yourself a chance to back out if there's a snake camping on the other side
Never put your hand on the blind side of a tree or branch, always grab the area you can see. Thorns, snakes, insects, mushrooms, frogs are a bitch
Watch your footing in swamps. Jagged tree roots can grow upwards like spikes under the water. You want grippy shoes with a good feel rather than rock solid, tough shoes.
Honestly, trail runners might be better than boots for the quick-dry, flexibility and dirt-cheap price across vietnam
And finally, do what the locals do when it comes to insect repellant, but don't copy their barefeet or sandals, especially not in sewage filled streets
How are the SFB 8" gen 2s?
They look pretty good and advertise quickdrying, since I think they're synth leather
I'm UK so is quick-dry roughout suede good for 3 season?
Someone said the lugs are slippier on these than the originals
Looks uncomfortable and cheap tbqh
