None of my mates like camping at all and I don't live close to woodlands or anything like that, how do you meet people to go /out/ with.

I think it's hard to go into the woods and make friends, but just try making an effort to meet new people and have as many genuine connections as you can. Once you make a bunch of new buddies, at least one of them is bound to be an outdoorsman. If not, you still have more friends than you did before, so it's a win-win.

The answer is LARP.

if you use social media then you could make a post aimed toward friends of your friends and ask there. or wait for the next big house party/gathering and put word out that way. i met some random people at a friend's party and wound up hiking with them two weeks later

I am in a very fucking similar situation, the closest area that I have are the everglades (which are not good at all, and is still like an hour drive.)
If I want some decent trails and woods it's like 4-5 hours.
None of my friends or family like /out/ either, so I am pretty fucked. I'll just head out alone whenever I have the chance.
FL fucking sucks, leaving this state eventually.

>get job as /out/fitter
>almost none of my coworkers even go hiking
>everybody regards me as this mythical expert because I hike more than four times a month, often alone, and like to challenge myself
I'm ready to give up on finding a hiking buddy and just get a fucking dog instead.

what jobs are the best /out/ jobs

Being an /out/fitter can still be pretty cool sometimes. Bonus points for how wet the female customers get from the whole dynamic of you helping fit them for packs and such when they're new to the whole thing.

In facebook groups.

Between pro deals, being surrounded by gear, and the daily experience of sharing your passion with the inexperienced it is easily the only job I've ever loved. If you're smart you can use it to transition farther into the outdoor industry as well. I know a ton of people who got noticed as outfitters and ended up being offered spots at companies like OR, Burton, BD, and Vasque.
