Just a friendly reminder that threads about weapons which do not pertain to their use in outdoor activities should be posted on /k/ instead. Thanks.

Say I'm going out to the woods for a week possibly 2, what would be some of the best foods to pack with me? Also best things to possibly forage. Hunting and fishing is obvious so I want some other thoughts

Guiness is the best warm beer (that is commonly avalible everywhere)

Your water beers like Corona, Heinekin, Stella, etc are also tolerable warm, but at least drinking warm stouts is actually a thing.

If its only a few days I pre-cook and pre-portion in ziplocks.

Like for breakfast I'll get a serving of oats, throw in whatever nuts, crasins, brown sugar, etc that I want while at home then just dump the bag into the pot/cup while /out/ and just add water. Or just put the bag in the cup as a liner and pour hot water in bag depending on how much heat said bags can handle.

Or pre-cook potatoes, sausage, etc then just crack an egg over it while cooking in camp.

You can get single serve cups of "just add water" mac and cheese, throw in a bit of protien powder and/or powdered mashed potatoes when you add your water and it makes it much heartier.

72-Hour Emergency Kit, Weekender, Bug-out Bag, TrunkJunk.
This is not Trolling. I <think> the 4channer who posted this pic was serious. They seemed proud of their hard work assembling this emergency kit.
If it is a joke, it is pretty funny. Otherwise, it is hilarious.

In spite of that, it does attempt to build a 72 hour/bug-out kit.


I did look through the very nice sticky on this board. Thank you to whoever made it.

This is applicable.

The whole setup is about 25lbs. I try to keep the pack under 10% of my body weight. The pack is a cheap "Outdoor Products Quest Day Pack", which run about $25 but have a lifetime warranty and hold up incredibly well for the price.

As for the time I actually needed it: I was in a very rural area in a valley when a blizzard came out of nowhere, compressed in on itself in the valley and dumped snow fast and hard, visibility was zero and while attempting to pull onto the shoulder to get off the road, I inadvertently drove *off* the road into a deep rocky ditch. My phone was broken in the process so I was in the middle of fucking nowhere that is seldom used when the weather isn't garbage, with no way of calling for help. Leaving my car and trying to climb out seemed like a recipe for mechanical injury and death from exposure so I decided to sit tight and wait it out. It was 4 days before they started plowing and the plow driver found me, but I was just fine. I kept warm by wrapping myself in an emergency 'space blanket' from the first aid kit, then the fleece blanket, then the whole hammock and used the camp stove to cook the freeze dried meals and to melt snow to fill the water bladder. Honestly, it was actually one of the best camping trips of my life.

>>1363435
Thanks.

I camped on weekends with a historical group for years, and some of the best ones were when there was a tornado or 9 inches of rain.
Everybody helped each other out and we laughed in the face of adversity.

Okay so I know a lot of anons must be wondering if I'm dead or not since my last thread (>>1307572) died but I've been a bit lazy and so much has gone on so here I am.

If you don't know I'm from London, England and I'm hitchhiking from NY to LA with no money. Previously I was a neet and decided to embark on this adventure while contemplating my flight back to London while staying in NYC.

If you have any questions, please ask and if you have any hitchhiking tales and tips of your own, do share.

I'm a NEET hikki virgin and I too would like this. But for a different reason.

-Do you have some kind of electronic device to listen to music, audiobooks, whatever while traveling?
-Do you carry books? How much space do they take up?
-Where do you get water?
-Is it necessary to carry a weapon for self defense?
-How much Human interaction is necessary?
-How much calories/food do you need a day?

My dream is Europe:
>no modern transportation, walk everywhere
>ideally only physical books, but this limits me to carrying what can fit, don't wanna get some electronic device I have to rely on charging in some library near people
>stay away from people as much as possible. ascetic hermit style

Trying to put together a lightweight set-up for short/easy expeditions.
Has anyone used a Snowpeak No.1 kettle? 250g, stainless steel.

I've swapped out my tent with a hammock & tarp and was gonna change out my sleeping bag for a fleece blanket for warmer weather.
Also getting one of those wood-burning collapsible stoves cos they look nifty af.

What do you guys use for cooking?
And does anyone have any advice for putting together a compact/relatively lightweight pack?

Hitch hiking stories.
I only have 2 worth telling
>be me 23 at the time and own a old van. Just had left big sur and was making my way to Yosemite when I saw a hot girl hitch hiking in Santa Cruz. Of course I pull over and ask her where she’s going and return she asked where am I going. Told her I’m heading to Yosemite for a week and she says she’ll join me. Turns out she’s backpacking alone which is nuts since she was pretty good lucking. So on our way we had gotten to know each other better so now we feel like old friends. Once at Yosemite we set up a campfire and have ourselves some food and beer. End of the night we bang it out. It was great for that whole week we just drove around to different trails and banged at different campsites. Once I left back home ahe stayed there said she was going to try to hitch to San Francisco or Boise. Stayed in touch for a bit then just lost complete connection with her.

>second experience
>picked up hitch hiker in kern county and she joined me for a weekender at Joshua tree. Same thing we drank beer had fun and banged it out as much as we could. And then ended up dropping her off in Los Angeles on my way back home.

I feel like i haven’t seen as any hitch hiker chicks like I used too, and hardly ever even see a guy hitching now.
It’s been 4 years since the last time I picked up a hitch hiker because I got a girlfriend and married her.
Do miss the characters you would meet on the road though
Has anyone had a similar experience? Either hitching a ride or picking up a hitch hiker?

I'd like to get into hunting with my son (8).

I never hunted growing up but have plenty of experience with weapons (10 years in the Infantry).

I live in South Carolina and Deer hunting and duck hunting are very big here. Unfortunately it seems to have always been something that has been passed down within families.

Do you have any advice on getting into this?

So funny, see you in the MGTOW thread later <3 *kisses*

ITT: post your shitty caravan and it's specs

Condition - No leaks but very rusty, pinhole leaks in tires, holes everywhere, floor on verge of collapsing, probably won't move again.
Berths - 1 or 2, bed is extendable and have enough mattresses to sleep two people comfortably or one very comfy boi.
Heating - Wood stove, made from broken gas stove
Facilities - aqua roll, sink (waste pipe goes to ????) portable bucket loo with that blue shit in it.
Axes - one hatchet and one large
Residents - mouse, ate my fucking cornmeal and shat everywhere
Etc - chopping block, chairs, cable-spool tables, moss.
Price - You can only one-up me on price if someone PAID YOU to take yours away, because mine was so shit that someone gave it to me for free.

When I got it it was leaking pretty bad down one side but I sealed it up with bitumen tape and it's been good for years.

You are having a conversation with yourself at this point because of your utterly terrible comprehension of grammar, and this is coming from a Kentuckian.

For fucks sake. Nothing at all wrong with going /out/ in extreme conditions, you just seem to be in heavy denial that your entire state is in an alcohol induced coma inside of their cabins for 6 months out of the fucking year, meanwhile that's 6 months that the rest of Americans enjoy.

Alaska is for pedophiles and socially inept white dudes who prefer to stay inside 80% of the year, with little to no human interaction.

Don't even get me started on the women. 90% of the time they resemble men more than the actual males that live there.

Let's settle this once and for all.

Best handgun for /out/ stuff?

Criteria- something light, reliable, easy maintenance, can put down a cougar or a tweaker. Think backpacking in the west If you want to recommend something for bears feel free as well.
