What shortwave radio do you own /out/?

I have a Tecsun PL-380 and I use it whenever I go hiking, thinking about upgrading to a Tecsun PL-880.

I've had this Eton FR-250 for over ten years. The knobs feel cheap, but the reception is pretty good and it comes with a hand crank, rechargable internal battery, and LED light / siren. I'm nostalgic about it because it's what I used to listen to Coast to Coast AM when I was a kid.

I also have a digital Grundig 400, about the size of the Eton's speaker panel. The tuner is supposedly better because it's digital, but the reception is absolute shit. Garbage, do not buy.

I also have a Palstar R30A HF receiver. It's a fantastic desktop piece, made around 2012, very sturdy construction and simple controls but pretty much requires an outdoor antenna setup.
>>
I should add that I'm looking at buying a Yaesu FT-2900 transceiver for the shack, or possibly the Jeep. A home base setup is nice to have if SHTF, but it would be nice to call out as well.

Not true. An ultralight fleece is indestructible, there are zero environments a silnylon tarp or pyramid tent couldn’t handle, and you couldn’t grind a hole in xpac fabric in 3 years of daily use unless you were literally throwing your pack down cliffs, that’s why climbers use it. Talking out of your ass, you’re not army, you’re not a forest firefighter, you’re not a miner, you’re at worst going to have to deal with packing out 70lbs of meat or staying dry in a storm through a valley or setting up a base camp on a mountain

Is it really though? Depending on where you look, or who you ask, they'll make the case that cannabis is also toxic to humans. There's still a lot of bias around. Alcohol is also "toxic" yet we sell it at every street corner, yum yum! Toxic has a very ambiguous meaning.

There is also the fact that just eating nugs doesn't do much in itself, unless the relevant molecules within have been activated beforehand, either through heat or prolonged contact wih oxygen. But that's another topic entirely.

There is a dispensary billboard in Colorado that advertises dog biscuit edibles. So I doubt it's that toxic.

What are your opinions about lavette bottles?

If you don´t know it, these are little bottles designed to wash out your ass after taking a shit when out. It is much better for the environment and I think it should be even cleaner and healthier. And if you are out for a longer time, it is a pain in the ass, carrying all the toilet paper you need for some weeks.
I personally think it is a valid alternative, and I will give it a try.

Not that anon, but there is a fine line between "Caring what people think" and knowing what to do. I want to fuck some 14 year olds that come into my work every few days. Does it mean I will if given the chance? No. Because I have standards that apply to my everyday life based on the society I live in.

Just because you like something and want to do it, does not mean it's okay based on laws, regulations, and simple cultural principles that have been formed over hundreds of years.

>TL:DR stop thinking watching anime makes you unique
I never said I was.

Perhaps you have me confused with the tripfag.

I need a single or two person tent for being all the way down here, but I'm not sure what sorts are good for it. I originally looked at the Divine Light but heard it can have problems with storms bringing in rain through the zippers on the wind blown side. And since I'm in Florida, heavy rains are pretty much guaranteed at any point save the dead of winter.

What tents would /out/ recommend for this bug infested sauna of a state?
>>
i would recommend a hammock instead
>off the gross ass swamp ground
>cant get eaten by gators
>maybe youll have an iguana cuddle buddy
>>
yeah hammocks are the best
otherwise you'd probably want a double walled tent such as the tarptent Notch if you use hiking sticks
or something like the Alps Mountaineering Zephyr 2
>>
Florida fag here. I use a hammock. Keeps the sand out in the scrub forest and is easy to pack up with our random rain and humidity. Comfy too.

Just spent a day and a half at a very cool campground that most people use for a basecamp.
Hot showers and picnic tables and fire rings.
Good times when you have been going without for a bit.
Anyway, shared a few beer around a communal campfire with a bunch of mostly couples. Some women who was a literal womens studies proff somewhere was holding court about white male privilege I shit you not. All the wives were very interested and there was a lively discussion.
The men were mostly silent and maybe did some nodding.
Later there was bickering coming from many tents.
I really had to chuckle , I wonder how many guys here who brag about their /out/ qts have to bite their tongues more and more these days.

It's the Chinese character "Ai" (pronounced: "eye"). It means love, but technically on it's own it's not a word, no more than a prefix or suffix is a word in English. Chinese characters don't mean anything unless they're part of a phrase, and very few word phrases are a single character.
Long story short, it means love

Hello /out/!

I saw an interesting thread on /b/ (yes please do condemn me) that asked

WHAT IF YOU WERE THE LAST PERSON
ON EARTH

No bodies, no signs of struggle, everyone just up and vanished. The world is yours and yours alone.

As you would imagine most replies were about the amount of amphetamines they'd collect and such, but there were interesting takes too.

What would YOU, seasoned sc/out/s do?
Travel light and scavenge or hunt for food?
Or would you settle into an already established farming settlement, where livestock, tools, seeds water and many more things are a given.

Do you mostly /out/ by yourself or with friends?

I used to motorcycle camp with friends and it was always a blast and i never felt uneasy about anything. Now days i don't really have friends, or a motorcycle so i only hike with no sleepovers. I feel a bit uneasy by my self in a forest at night. Every mouse running around sounds like a bear or a hillbilly.

I either camp with a my only buddy that likes /out/ or solo hike only. I'm trying to go on my first solo overnight and I think as soon as I get to do it for a couple times I will be able to do it 100 times more because you'll get used to it. You start understanding the noises, the wind breeze and honestly the experience of sleeping under the stars alone might be liberating as fuck
