First off you shouldn't completely ruin your life just because you fucked up. Who cares if you beat your wife? I bet she prevented you from winning the big jackpot and having fun with the lads. The bitch probably deserved and would've divorced you anyways, so fuck it. Time to move on.

Are you totally ineligible for gibs? You gotta be able to get some dough from uncle sam right? There's also plenty of beaner-tier labor jobs you could get with no credentials. Most pay 100 bucks cash at the end of every day, something to consider if you aren't physically fucked up too.

>>2724142
I take jobs and make money where I can, mostly manual labour. My days of bin yackin are mostly behind me and I don't beg. There are hard times and better times but I mostly get by. During better times I even have enough money to help out some of my bros but I never have enough to get my own digs. During the winter I sometimes get to couch hop with friends or friends of friends. Gets me out the cold for a while. I'm not going to lie, most of my money goes on booze.

They're probably more interested in what you smell like than what your gear smells like. Stay away from perfumes and deodorants and don't keep granola wrappers on you. Keep your trash and food away from your tent.

Nope, well sometimes if they're starving or extremely confident, but it varies between species, locale, and by individual bear. Generally black bear aren't going to fuck with humans, but it depends on a lot of factors.

Finished the first season and it was comfy. The odd thing though ist that they camp very different from me. When I go out I try to bring as little as I can and I have some goal. They bring shit they like and just chill. So I decided to say fuck it and I will just go onto a normal camping spot and bring all the shit I never bring and just kick back a little and just try relaxing outdoors.
Wish me luck!

The thing is they act like they have something that's worth bothering with but then travel to escape what little they have as they own even less and will continnue to own less as time goes by. Scandis are always the best tier but I don't consider them euros because they have the ability to not fuck up thier own nations, besides migrants. It's a bit of a delay.
Germany, spain, england, tiny soviet satalite hellstates all the same shit. They'd rather not own a ruin in a park than have limitless veldts, woods, or places that you can't get found. It's something of a cultural disease because obviously they have to try and live with it and that means lots of bargaining and begging internally to be praised for something even the most mutted out american can do for 20 dollars of gas and a payer. They have so little now. That's why people bailed on them before the industrialisation and now it's just an unmitigated hellscape of collective cope and no hope. You're are the point where it's better to be born a south american or an asian than a european in europe. They brag about other peoples stuff constantly. Italy was pretty cool exception but barren chaparrel is a favourite of mine. They have funny shotgun town. All the good parts of europe migrated out 80 years ago and the leftovers are shitting in the lifeboat and complaining about the smell to this day. I'd pity them but they did it to themselves and have no idea. Absolute ignorance. These people aspire to living in an apartment and those that don't are crushed and shouted down by thier own until they get the fuck out and self educate or they suicide.
They don't know enough to even know what they don't have. No point arguing with the dead and buried. That's all they are. A rotting mass. Devoid of all hope and aborted of evolving culture.

Lot's of permacultures have wells and cisterns. I don't think you know what permaculture is... Water management is as much about groundwater recharge which feeds the aquifer your well accesses as it is about "watering plants."
Permaculture focuses what the watershed is doing and what the aquifer is doing and how to maximize that water.

I'm someone who annually (or semi-annually, depending on a bunch of factors) hunts wild cervids, particularly caribou and moose, and I've been keeping a beady eye on the CWD epidemic in North America waiting for the day that zoonosis inevitably occurred. It seems that it may have happened.
It's over. It's never been more over. In fact, it's so over that I've been sitting here with my head in my hands uttering "It's over" in a very over-exaggerated French accent so that it sounds like "It is Auvergne."
But my question is: In /out/'s opinion, just how Auvergne is it? What do you all reckon is going to happen here? And will you change your hunting behaviour as a result?

Goodbye to America's meat export market for a while I guess
>>
>>2724007
Well, this only really applies to cervids so other animals should be alright for the most part. At the very least when it comes to parasites (which, if you hunt for long enough, you will invariably encounter and consume) you can largely avoid issues by making sure to thoroughly cook your food. This is especially true of predator animals or animals that regularly consume other animals, but it's a good general rule to follow with all wild game. Prions can't really be helped, but if you happen to be exposed it's still not 100% that you'll end up with a prion disease. But if you get exposed and infected, you're guaranteed to be fucked and you likely won't know it for nearly a decade.

It should be emphasized that bear, particularly bear, should always be cooked all the way through. Consuming bear meat anything other than well done gives you a preeeeetty good chance of trichinosis which I wouldn't recommend getting unless you like parasite eggs in your muscle fibres.

No.
>>
>>2722980
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
>>
>>2722980
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

>>2722980
There are places on BLM land in the SouthWest that don't enforce the camping duration or even the ban on structures.
Your other option is to join the pack of folks building eco ships I think in Arizona.

starting this because i don't want to clutter the catalog with my dumb ass question. i am trying to plan an /out/ing, 4-day weekend type deal. i would ask my best friend who i usually camp with for advice but he's deployed. i'm planning on getting a tent, foam pad, sleeping bag, and solar phone charger. i already own clothes, lighter, water bottle, plenty of packed food, and a mora companion (it was on sale for like $14 and i like to get plant and mushroom cuttings) and flashlight. do i need anything else, or is it all just consumerist memes? forgive me if i forgot anything super crucial, i'm retarded (89 IQ). i don't plan on making fire. i just want to hike and sleep. it's a normie campground so i don't need water purifiers, i think. it'll be in southeast oklahoma, sunny and hitting 60F at night. good weather to not go missing? thanks in advance! :)

The purpose of this general is to encourage people to go /out/ and find cool fossils and artifacts. This thread is also a place to share our own collections and things we find when we are /out/ hunting.

Rules are as follows,
>To just post and discuss fossils and other related geological subjects.
>When you post about a fossil in your collection, please label it with what formation it is from, what it is, and where in the world it is from.
>If you don't know where it originated or the species that is ok, just label it as so
