Is this a good water filter?

They have a reputation for clogging more often than the Squeeze.
if price is not an issue what's the proffered filtration method?
Just get the regular squeeze
yes but just get the squeeze its not that big. regularly backflush it and it'll last you forever.
A Sawyer Squeeze or a Katafyn Beefree have better reviews. I’ve used a Squeeze for years with no issues. My preferred method is Aquamira but it’s not a very popular choice.

I'm looking up maps of public national forests, to find nice land suitable for me to head out in and do recreation activities. Something that has been irking me, is that often the best access points and most convenient to public land for me are privately owned. I found a whole section of national forest essentially surrounded by private land, and for me to access it easily I'd have to cross through private land. Like why is this shit allowed for people to buy access points to public land, and then use it for their own purposes in addition to using the public land for their own purposes. Many of these people will have an effective monopoly of the public land, because they own the easiest access points and it's not easily available for anyone else. So they "control", or at the very least have a near monopoly use of the public land for their own purposes, a much greater amount of land than they actually own.

Is it a case of, they owned the land before the national forest existed, or these land are being traded privately to gain effective monopoly usage of a great amount of public land?

This link will show you how much public land is landlocked in each state by private property.

It's a legitimate problem actually. There are millions of acres of public land in the US that are inaccessible to access legally by land. Just because

> No car camping or overnight vehicle parking is allowed in pullouts, parking areas, picnic grounds, or any place other than a designated campground.
> All camp sites were booked as soon as they were put on sale
> All backcountry permits are only available to "lottery" winners

Is this the /out/ you guys speak of? Or is this Disney world?

In all seriousness, I know these are tourist destinations and they're just trying to keep scum like me out, but I have a truck camper and like a month off work (May, early June). I want to experience Yellowstone and the Cascades on a roadtrip from the Midwest. Do you all just give up on national park camping and camp in the surrounding areas then go in the park for the day? Can I count on doing a walk-up and asking for a backcountry permit and not being turned away? My original idea was to go without any reservations and split the time on my trip between car camping (no amenities needed) or tent camping in wherever I ended up, but now I see it could possibly lead to a shitty time without planning. What do you guys do if you're making a trip, plan ahead with the permits and pre-selected destinations or just wing it and do things that don't require permits? I just really wanna get out there this summer, it's my opportunity.

Filthy casual here but done a lot of National Park roadtripping. I sleep in my vehicles, never pitched a tent in me life.

I sleep at rest stops, random roadside pullouts (not in the NP), random dirt lots you can find on the side of a busy highway. It ain't as relaxing as waking up in a scenic nature area, but usually at campsites there are tons of other ppl around too, so it ain't that special or isolated or pristine.

Just sleep in your vehicle, this is what all the vanfags and overlandfags are hyping.

Pic is the main highway going thru North Cascades
Wow thanks a lot. The dirt road free camping is good with me. When you're dirt road camping is there usually other people near you doing it too? Or is the idea to keep driving until no one's around
True but it sounds unreliable during the peak season and assuming the case in which it's denied the day I arrive, I wanted to get an idea how feasible it is to find a campsite (or just a place to park without being bothered) on a whim out there. Other guys are saying I'll be alright
Thanks a lot. Yeah I'm probably trying to put together a trip based off national forest camping and not national park camping. And the backcountry permits for yellowstone are lottery right now but open in a few days. I imagine they'll sell out fast. I'm driving from indiana to seattle and it's kind of on the way so I wanted to do it.
Nice. Did you go solo? Are the dirt lots and pullouts places you're actually allowed to park overnight or do you just look for secluded enough and hope no one messes with you? I have slept in my car a few times in the smokeys and been caught in areas with no overnight parking signs everywhere and it sucks.
>What does that have to do with being rich?
For a poorfag dirtbagger, $10 a permit/$30 a campsite isn't too pricey if you're booking a couple days for a special vacation. But it's enough to discourage you from overbooking several weekends in a row.

For a richfag, paying $100-$300 to reserve 5 potential weekends in a row (and just choosing the one with the nicest forecast) is no big deal. But then they fuck it over for the normal people who COULD have picked up a permit, if they weren't already reservde
>Can I count on doing a walk-up and asking for a backcountry permit and not being turned away?
I've done this at Glaicer and while the highest demand campsites go by 6 am, you can get any other ones if you show up around mid-day.
>I wanted to get an idea how feasible it is to find a campsite (or just a place to park without being bothered) on a whim out there
Also- there are A LOT of NF campgrounds surrounding the park- within 10-20miles which have much less people

And this is petrified wood, correct? Got a dozen smaller chunks just want to verify it's actually petrified wood.

Also it was public space before anyone gets their panties in a bunch.
>public space
by which I mean it was in previously untouched land between two new housing developments, so not public or private land really just a garbage wash with a few little coulees.
>I'm curious what the type is that gives this unique orange yellow hue
Best way to identify it is to lick it. Kek. But seriously, yellow-orange in rocks is usually from trace iron inclusions
Looks like a type of limestone. I think it is quite common for them to have parts that contain oxidized iron, at least that's what my local limestone has a lot of. Some of these cracked open can reveal fossils.
it does look a little bit like PW. Is it a spot known for it? I found a nice chunk of 50 million yr old redwood tree

you just felt compelled to fit in with polfags?
I was being sarcastic, although if you have a problem with polfags on /out/ you should probably go back to your safespace.
last time i went out some bloke on a dirt bike came up to us and stopped, just stared at me and my wife for a minute while we drank water. I gave him a nod but I did consider what I would need to do if it escalated. I had a bushcraft knife with me, which is about all I could think of since he had a helmet on and I could not knock him out or anything.
my take away from that was make sure you have your knife or gun visible on your belt even if you are still trekking.

If you read up on all those early polar expeditions it was always the Scandinavians who did well and know what they were doing, a lot of their stuff isn't well known or translated though.
Guys like Shackleton and Scott were performers, not proper adventurers. They were the ones who managed to convince English donors to fund their adventures where they got up to all kind of retarded high jinks, came back and got good publishing deals from their rich buddies for their accounts.

always chopped mine with a brush axe. Works a lot better than a machete in my experience because it gets hooked in with each swing. Just wear good long sleeve like hickory shirt and good gloves. I use cowlitz river cotton gloves.
Generally speaking, and contrary to popular understanding, cows are the best animal for keeping brush beaten down, eaten, and cleared. They clear a large area per cow vs goats. They require very little by way of fencing to keep enclosed compared to goats. You basically just have to water them and have a halfway serviceable t post fence.

Dumbest post on the board rn. Bobcats will kill cats, dogs, livestock, anything they can. He can't kill ALL the bobcats, but killing any that come near his hens will put an end to the problem for now. Feeding it will just encourage it to come near humans and it will kill people's pets and livestock

No. Chicks naturally crowd up. You want to have a spot without the light directly above it so that they can move in/out of the light to manage their desired temperature.

almost certainly no, but if you were to maybe illegally hunt and forage (check edible native plants in the area and "farm" them by just propagating them around the place) maybe you wouldnt starve. make sure you set up near water but not too near
actual pastoral nomads have hundreds to thousands of animals and their entire extended family living and working with them. They also migrate to different areas each season. If you cant do this you'll starve

I carry my inReach even on the safe streets of Japan. You never know when some pozzed, indoctrinated individual chimps out and you are cornered or forgien national glowies attempt to abduct you.
I even have the remote function on my garmin watch so I can auto alert if it my EKG flatlines for more than 5min and also erase all personal data on my watch/inreach.

I think of it like a health bar/pager in a video game.
>someone had to teach him how a compass works

Why would you want other people to see you before you see them? That would make me very uncomfortable, like sitting at the very first table in the break room with your back to entrance. I don't own a single piece of clothing or gear that is any color except Earth brown, olive drab green, and stone grey. The whole point of going out in the woods is escaping humanity and becoming invisible and being left the fuck alone.

When in Rome...So I'll have some colorful clothes and kit, but also some camo stuff on tap. A thread like this exists because people can feel uneasy if a fully-kitted camo dude suddenly appears before them. Keep the normies happy and usually all is well.

Disagree, browns tans and greens are nice, especially as pant/short colors. Go nuts up top. Put on a friendly face and all that. Maybe even God Forbid make some friends with the normies in your area and have hiking buddies on tap, of all persuasions from amateur-hour tiktokkers to paranoid smelly vets.
