nah, i did.
i had a small garden in my house in the suburbs.
4 years ago i moved from a big ass capital, a 20M people hellhole to a small rural town.
i've bought a patch of land on the outskirts and started an organic garden that is growing year by year. i have the help of a couple of hippies that work theyre asses out (just as i do) in exchange of food, learning and shelter.

planning to move to the site as soon as i finish the house that is being built there (starting in a week, really).

in the meantime, i keep working as a graphic designer for my clients in the capital, but i think i can live that shit in a couple of years.

>Kris Kremers and Lisanne Froon were Dutch students who disappeared on April 1, 2014, while hiking in Panama. After an extensive search, portions of their bodies were found a few months later although how they died could not be determined. The circumstances and aftermath of their disappearance have resulted in much speculation about the cause of death.

After reading >>1153799 → post on another thread I got curious and started searching for more info about the story since that at the time seems like it was something big and I had never heard of it before or seen it discussed here so I think it's worth to discuss it now. We can also have some talk about jungle survival if someone is interested or has significant knowledge.

Anyway, what do you think that happened to them?

The girls got lost and were unable to return. Perhaps one of them got injured. They didn't have a cell signal and were unable to call for help, so they turned their phones off to preserve their battery charge. They managed to stay alive, and probably together for more than a week until one night disaster strikes and they lose each other. Panic sets in and the phone gets turned on again so the flash can be used as a flashlight. Afterwards they die of starvation or exposure.
I can't even begin to think of the shit those girls experienced. Absolutely horrifying way to go.

They are dead. Stop talking bout deads.

>>1159796
I wonder if they were surviving by snuggling up with each other at night, so when one died the other one didn't stand a chance.

Assuming you really like the /out/ life, why aren't you saving every penny to buy a decent piece of land rather than spending your shekels in stupid and useless gear?

it's not nearly as huge as you'd think, but I'll let you figure that out on your own.

on the plus side you don't have neighbors banging on your walls, and your landlord isn't likely to come inspect the place at odd times. They can, but they usually don't.

well in this thread people are talking about how it's impossible to buy land and build a house without spending hundreds of thousands, where I live you can buy a 5 acre lot for a couple grand and live in whatever you want to, there's a lot of freedom in that, I could be living a couple hours from here in a city and would be hating my life

where I live you don't even have to have a septic system if your lot is bigger than 5 acres
>>
>>1159804
where I live you were able to camp year round on your land until this spring when some jackass camping on his land lit the forest on fire and the county passed laws against it.

how long before some jackass shitting in a waterway or at the edge of his lot forces your area to pass laws requiring septic systems?

I'd guess not long.

It worked out well last Xmas and Easter. A few people have added homemade lures or gifted stuff they already had and that’s fine as long as it’s fair for everybody, but ordering directly from one of the big online retailers seems to be the easiest. Don’t use a burner email because I need to keep in touch with people to send them the person they shop for, exchange shipping info, etc. For the paranoid anons, the only people who will see your info are me (I have yet to rape anybody from 4chan yet) and the person that shops for you, so either relax and have fun or quit bitching and don’t join in.

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Prince Albert, Carter Hall or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $20.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

Yeah, I got one from a bag of MM seconds and fitted a straightened diplomat stem onto it for a longer stem. Can't take any pics atm but I'd def reccomend it (even with the dagner name) as a relatively cheap poker, as I liked it so much I bought a second with the short bit which is made of acrylic and much better than the usual plastic bits MM pipes come with.

They probably remember some of the old OTC cherry tobaccos like Paladin.
Those are still around, and smell great if you can smoke them right, but they don’t taste as great, or at least not for me.
Lots of modern cherry aromatics out now (even the OTCs) are better tasting than many of the older ones. Casey Jones’ Last Ride, Cult Blood Red Moon, CAO Cherry Bomb, MAC Baren 7 Seas Red, and Captain black cherry are all pretty good. For bulk, Lane Very Cherry is the basis for a lot of pipe shop cherry blends.

Why no weed? It's way better than smoking tobaccos imho

Most people size down but it really depends what type of climbing you do. Overhanging you want tighter shoes, for crack or multi pitch you may want slightly looser fitting shoes for more comfort. I wear 10.5/11 and wear 9.5/10 or whatever the euro equivalent is (I’m a La Sportiva guy)

How do I start camping and backpacking like you guys? I'm a city slicker, camped a few times when I was a kid, recently felt the urge to distance myself from civilization little by little to become more human.
What gear is essential? Where do I start, do I set myself some sort of goal along the way? What dangerous stuff can happen?
I live in Russia, so you can't really recommend me any places to go to.
