Thanks for posting these. I want to do a hot baker tent with a stove but I'm not sure how to waterproof canvas. Been reading about using paraffin wax and a heat gun to melt wax into the canvas (10 oz drop cloth actually). Also, using Linseed oil but I can't afford gallons of linseed oil and have nowhere to dry canvas. Anyhow, here's a bump.

Hey /out/

There's this patch of wooded land, roughly 70 acres behind my house. I think I can pull off stealth camping in it, but there are horses, cows, foxes coyotes, a couple bears, and turkeys all in it.

Is it safe to try sleeping next to those animals, specifically the livestock?

Wear a Bigfoot costume and they will leave you alone. Except the turkey, they might attempt coitus. Just let it happen.

dont store any food in or near your tent. don't cook near it either. bears have been known to rip open tents that smell like food, occasionally while a person is inside.

>sleep in extra clothes
Yeah, I was wondering about that. Perhaps the -1C limit is the better choice, although the bivy does add a fair amount of insulation.
>Cheapo silnylon
Wise words, i'll definitely give this a go first. The gear hunger is maddening, I don't want a tarp that shreds in the wind or if you pitch it near a bush. That was a good read!
>groundsheet
I thought of an idea - write something on each corner, then if the writing is mirrored, your groundsheet is dirty-side-up.
>sil/cuben bathtub
Ah, again it's those fucking slugs. I don't mind any of the other denizens of the forest, but if I'm going to camp under a cozy tree or by a river, or in a starry copse, that's slug central and I know one of the friendly buggers is going to make its way across my chest or face
>reflectix
My bad, that's a hardcore insulation material from america. I was thinking of the standard reflective windshield screens, they're pretty handy since they reflect a certain frequency of radiation, they're actually very effective - I've seen minimalist kits that only take a reflective windshield and no pad, good for beach sleeping too. Might help you push your 1/8th a little further.
>clothes
That core 13 was a great read. Since I plan to go into towns and cities on the voyage, it wouldn't hurt to be a little presentable and performance puffy jackets lose out to the versatile fleece, which I can source anywhere, wash easily and sew into a more flattering look. I'll explain if you email me, but my plan is to combine a long hike with museum and gallery visits for /ic/ purposes, so I'm trying to be a little more presentation conscientious than a rugged performance hiker, to get picked up while hitchhiking into towns more frequently.

>>
>>1210182
The first version of the Palante had some real issues though. Too much stress on a few key points and fabric choices in some spots was questionable. I really like how that pack and the MLD Burn have started a sort of "idea wave" that resulted in lots of other pack builders to create similar packs but with their own ideas and improvements added to them. Pic related is the new Atom pack from a guy based in the UK. Looking really good imo.

It is a cool bag, just no where near cool enough to justify the effort needed to get one, not the price tag.

I listed it as a con since it might not be immediately obvious to somebody who hasn't used altimeters before.
I've flown while wearing it before, and as long as it's calibrated beforehand, it agrees with the plane's altimeter.

Is drinking snowmelt safe?


I have some contractors working on my flooring and they had to move the fridge, so I got a pan and collected fresh snow, and begin to melt it in a pan over my stove. I did not boil it, however.
Is it safe to drink /out/? I have already consumed some.

Absolutely not, no matter what anyone says in this thread you MUST boil it before drinking it to make it properly safe.

Yeah, youre probably fine, to be safer bring it to a full boil next time if you are concerned about catching snow AIDS.

Is the yeti even worth it? 200 for a small cooler seems fucking insane but I hear they are good..like really good. Issue is I feel they are more of a lifestyle cooler and not something practical.

I have a RTIC 20 and my buddy has a Yeti 20. Both are white. We tested them each with a 10lb bag of ice inside the house next to each other. The RTIC lasted longer, it was half the price, and it has more cubic space inside. For the price of one Yeti I can get two RTIC's that will outperform. Yeti is a meme. The purpose of a cooler is to keep your things cool. It makes sense to buy the RTIC because it keeps stuff the coldest.
>>
I don't know about rtics or pelicans or w.e but my yeti really surprises me sometimes. I recently went on a long trip and put frozen meat in my yeti expecting it to thaw slowly by the time we reach our destination. Hours later still frozen. 2 days later still frozen...fuck we had to take them and put them in a smaller cooler for them to un thaw. 5 days later and the temperature was still optimal for keeping food fresh. My cheapo cooler was hot tub temps by then.
>>
>>1210141
In other words is a 300 plus dollar cooler worth it? Maybe. Do you camp ? Does your cabin have a fridge? If no they yeti is the way to go. Does it last as long as a conventional cooler? IDK my cheapo one is from the 90s but obviously the temperature drops alot because yetis and the similar brands really are for longer term stuff.

Thought I'd do a thread on winter equipment in Sweden for skiing with a supply sled.
Going on a 5 day trip with my class, digging a new bivouac every night, igloos if the snow quality is good. 19 classmates and 3 dogs.
I'm training for a longer trip in march/april when the days are long for more miles, the nights aren't -30C anymore so won't need as much extra clothing and generally makes life a little easier.

Only things not pictued is my food bag, skis, poles, the packed supply sled and harness.

My standard is a thin synthetic shirt, a thin merino turtleneck with a hardshell on top of that if I'm doing something active, if digging just a thin synthetic shirt and beat up softshell that I let get soaking wet, change out of it when i'm done digging and then just shake off most of the ice.

Thin knee high merino, slightly thicker wool then a fuck huge knitted wool sock

Not with that attitude, anon.

If all it took was total collapse of the electrical grid, then a big enough solar flare pointed at Earth will do the job. Either that or a few dozen saboteurs in various countries arrange to disable multiple substations and high voltage lines. Do it right and you can cripple the grid for months.

Also, Its the first character for the country Estonia in Chinese (something like Aishania, phonetic translation from Estonia). Also note that this is the traditional Chinese version of it, not the new mainland china simplified version.
Chinese have a fun way of naming the country names. For example Amertica is mei-guo, (beautiful country) but the mei character is comprised of 2 sub characters (radicals), one meaning "obese" other "sheep". Chinese are literally calling americans beautiful, fat sheeple :). Estonia in a loose translation however means something like nuns making love on a sandy beach :/

Heya sc/out/s,

I'm looking for suggestions from any hammock campers out there. On my last alpine hike my hammock tore pretty much in half for some reason, probably lack of care/overuse after a year of owning it. Looking for suggestions for a new one.

Since i'll be doing shopping could do with any general gear suggestions, you guys picked up anything recently you thought was really useful?

Just look for the "parachute" type. I got mine for 45 BGN and for one time we were smoking too much weed and we couldn't get out of it because it was tied 5 meters on a tree. Se there were 3 of us in the hammock for a few hours high as fuck and getting hit the paranoia that the hammock will snap. That is about 240kg of weight and the producer says: "aah... don't go above 400".
I've seen many expensive as fuck hammocks snap with just 2 ppl on top of it..
>>
Who sets up a ridgeline with their hammock? I don't, but the more I go /out/, the more I'd like to have a consistent shape each time I hang up.

anyone got any anecdotes?
>>
>>1208668
Ive done it. Didn't even do research when i did it just tied some thickish rope so I could get a consistent sag. I like it, makes setting up a little faster and everything still fits in the hammocks bag. Plus convenient spot to hang a headlamp and things you want easily accessible.

>>1207452
I was a trendy dipshit and got one of the eno doublenest hammocks about 3 years ago, It's seen a lot of use and abuse and It still holds strong. I like it alot but if I were to buy something new I would try and find a longer hammock, for now I make sure I stuff some shit under my lower back
