It's really not that cold man. I actually prefer winter bush walking - there are no flies, you don't sweat your tits off, snow is pretty, and there are very few tourists.

>Considering they give you a class with terms for you to memorize for an hour or two, for two or three days
You get 1 hour 1 time and then you're supposed to "read about it" (they don't provide anything to read) in your "down time" (you don't get any down time).

Then they do the daytime test right after a PT test, and if you fail that you do more PT instead of them actually telling you anything.

First time posting here.

What, in your opinion, is a good video game when it comes to emulating the outdoors experience? For hunting and survival, I've enjoyed Cabela's hunting game (2013) and Seven Days to Die, if you remove the zombies, does a nice job of a comfy camping experience.

What are some /out/ approved games?

Thank you for your time,

t. an outsider

Depends. I usually run around the map and when I hear an animal call, I stop and call back. Usually they are audible from far enough that my running didn't affect them too much.

Although noises are the #1 animal deterrent here. I have startled over 10k animals and about 9000 of those were by noise.

And when stalking an animal forget running, it will hear you and run away ad infinitum.

And don't be fooled by it being "realistic". It is the MOST realistic, not "actually" realistic. Ballistics, parkinson weapon sway and "lol don't hit both lungs, heart and spine are much better dude" can annoy some people. You just have to remember it's a game.
And it looks beautiful.

this anon is correct. powdered milk and powdered eggs are somehow regarded as loathsome surplus Korean War rations, but actually they're quite good and an elegant solution to many of /out/'s woes. depending on where you get them and in what quantity, powdered milk is usually like 1/20 the cost of bottled milk. a 1kg bag makes like 40 litres of milk for $5 and it doesn't spoil. i've stopped buying bottled milk because i keep wasting it. stir a couple spoons of the powder into my coffee or cocoa and it's amazing.

now, powdered eggs tend to be a little more expensive than fresh eggs (unless you buy legit Korean War surplus or in massive bulk) but considering how convenient they are it's 100% worth it for extended /out/tings. fresh eggs are fine for a day or two but longer than that you're better off carrying the powder and just stirring up some scrams over the fire in the morning.

Does anyone know a good place to start finding jobs that have me on boats and ships? I'm thinking I want to live in the North East of the U.S because I like the colder temperatures it has.

if i remember correctly in the desert wars it was found a $5 blanket defeats a $25k digital infra googles
>>
>>1379761
that is quite unlikely, particularly in the infrared doesn't just show difference in relative temperature, what it's really is showing is the emissivity of various materials. this is why if every single thing you're looking at is 98ºF you'll still see a clearly revealing difference between materials that have higher and lower heat emissivity. now the infrared can be fooled by highly reflective (100% emissive) materials like, say, a silver mylar emergency blanket, because it just reflects everything around it. but, for one thing highly reflective surfaces hide what's behind them fairly well from infrared ( although they still show up very well defined and conspicuous and have an unnatural pattern of reflection), mylar is otherwise (with natural or night vision optics) the complete opposite of camouflage. it's just not really feasible to use shiny foil to try and hide, and even if you do it's not really going to work.

A headlamp is fairly limited to your facing direction at a straight to downward angle.
A flashlight can be more freely moved to light up the periphery and is generally better shaped for being used in hand than a headlamp.

Did you get nervous or uneasy when you first started solo camping? How did you deal with it?

I’ve camped a good deal with others, but I’m trying to go on more solo trips. Most of the solo camping I’ve done has been at campgrounds, so I’m a little uneasy going on overnight trips alone in remote areas. I have a gun, which makes me feel a little better, but not much. Tips?

Waterproof takes a little longer to dry, breathes less (they both don’t really breathe), weighs more and packs up larger

For general hikin n travel, a non wp will be fine, look for one without sewn through baffles for maximum loft n wind resistance

they are good, but overpriced.

but doing aerobic activity while wearing a down jacket is not recommended.

iam from europe. not sure if arcteryx makes a difference between their products for the canadian/us market and their export versions.

>>1379743
They’ve just recently started making shoes so I’m not surprised that they’re crappy. As far as their other clothing goes, it’s super fucking expensive but it holds up very well. I’d say if you have the cash to drop on an arcteryx jacket, go for it. You won’t be disappointed if your wallet can handle the beating.
