I have a dream to see the Wollemi pines in the wild. But the actual location of the valley containing the trees within the national park is a closely guarded secret. Wollemi NP is massive and almost entirely wilderness; I'm pretty sure I could search for years without ever finding them.

Does anyone have any leads or know anything about this?

From talking to people in the NPWS there are several strands, but I don't think they're that distinct that you could spot them on a map like that.

Maybe with very high res aerial photos.

there are between 200 and 60 in the wild (its hard to count them apparently). a photo showing more than 200 trees isnt going to be it

What's the most based swing/hammock/pod? My tree is about 100 years old, the branch is 12" around so plenty strong. It snapped this winter however from a wet snow, so I cut it about 4' from the trunk. It would have to be a single mounting point.

I ask because there's so many options and the prices are all over the place, kinda overwhelmed with it.

Would spend up to a few hundred bucks.

You have to buy a claim or something iirc.

I work in mining in the Eastern US. You nead to own or lease the mineral rights. The government isnt the worse when it comes to leasing the mineral rights but if there is ore in your area the leases may already be held by another company. Also, I havw no fuckin clue how claims and shit work out west if you are there.

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! :)

Get a freestanding tent that has mostly external clips. I can have my tent up with the tarp on in less than 4 minutes and my pack has a pack cover. I've never gone to bed wet.

You also want to "read the storm." If you can (which is more common than not) you can wait for the lull in the rain and set up then.

I wouldn't overthink it, any U lock is going to be pretty hard to cut without huge, heavy duty bolt cutters, if you need more flexibility and range for whatever you're chaining up to then get a metal chain made out of marine grade stainless steel and a big, tough padlock.
Like this guy says >>2720471 kryptonite is a good brand but if you can find a cheaper U lock at a hardware store or online then get that.

Another option is a 'fly-first' tent. They tend to be not free-standing trekking pole tent. There's also always tarping as an option.

I can pick up a pretty well-maintained 80's 30 ft. sailboat for around 65% of my savings. I don't have enough to buy a house, is houseboat living on a 30 ft. sailboat feasible? I live in Texas. I already have Starlink because I live in the Piney Woods.
>>
I bought a 17ft whaler clone last year. thinking of just junking it and buying a better boat. too many problems. it has a slow leak that I haven’t been able to pinpoint using the usual methods. the transom is not great. it previously had delaminating on and was repaired in an ugly way, essentially just having epoxy poured on it. in addition to all that the motor is an old Evinrude 88 spl. it won’t idle no matter what adjustments I’ve made to the carbs. also cleaned the carbs. no difference. I need to give it a lot of gas in neutral and try to quickly shift into gear to keep it from stalling. thinking of giving up on his one and getting a 19ft Grady White with a 150hp Yamaha that is for sale locally for 9k. mostly interested in using it like I used my boat last year, for taking. Y nieces tubing. we did get to tube last year but it was frustrating with the various issues.

Okay, not literally, but I'm relatively new to going /out/ and I wanted to share my thoughts. I've just started going on my first overnights and I've loved it each time. I had this thought during my last camping trip while running around in the snow in the pitch darkness with my headlamp collecting firewood and I can honestly say, despite how simple it was, no video game had ever brought me so much fun and excitement, and I was just picking up sticks.

Now, as I prepare for my first solo backpacking trip, I downloaded a GPS app and its offline maps. Due to the limitation of the one I went with, I have to manually map my trail. It was then I realized the potential fun I could have using this app. I loved Breath of the Wild, especially the exploration aspect, and my plan during my next backpacking trip is to look out for edible mushrooms (of all kinds) and mark them on my map. I also plan to take photos of landmarks and points of interest to mark on my map as well. Since I'm a bit of a completionist, my end goal is to hike every single trail and visit every peak of my nearest statepark, and then move onto the next.

I guess the only thing that's really missing is combat, but I'm not jumping at the opportunity to enter a knife fight with some trail hobo or take down a bear lol. One of these days I'll look into picking up fishing for that extra camp activity. Thanks for reading.

There is no "World Wiki" or "World forums" where I can read "How to do this or that" and it is only based on how good cards you did get and how much money you will use for this project. There can be two people that have different end result just because of their voice, face or "spawning" location. In Minecraft you just learn, do the instructions and have the thing or have achieved something.
>>
>>2722054
>No. The point is the journey and what you do along the way. I have Minecraft save from 2009 that I have updated in form of server that I run locally.
My point with that statement was that reaching the end feels good because it isn't immediate gratification. Doing anything /out/ requires effort, but you're rewarded for it in the end. Going on a long hike and setting up camp pays off for me personally, because I can finally rest and relax after strenuous effort. Being outside somewhere remote is some of the most relaxing times for me.

>Money, health, skills etc. You lose them in days if you don't do hard work every day.
This is beyond /out/, but this should be a given. Minecraft has this to an extent, too. If you don't eat, you'll lose hearts right? If you don't replenish your health, you'll die right? You work in Minecraft to make these things less of an issue by setting up and establishing solutions. Real life is the same way, it's not as straightforward and a lot more difficult, but it isn't impossible. You aren't a casual, right?

What are you talking about? A lot of this depends on what you're aiming to do. It sounds like you're talking about subjects beyond /out/, but if we're talking /out/ the only thing you're limited to is your knowledge. You're already staring at one of the various "World Forums" available to you, if there is anything you're interested in doing or want to figure out, you can refer to 4chan or another forum regarding a skill or hobby and learn. Same thing with a "World Wiki", there is a vast amount of information readily available to you. You can learn how to do anything devoting enough time, effort, and to an extent money towards it.

It's important to reconsider how you view the challenges and obstacles in your life. While it might seem daunting at times, remember that what appears as peril to some may appear as ripe opportunities to others. Perspective plays a crucial role here.
It’s true that life doesn’t come with the same built-in rewards as Minecraft. In Minecraft, the game is specifically designed to tap into the psychological mechanisms that make us feel good when we progress and achieve. It's crafted to be rewarding at almost every turn. Real life, on the other hand, isn't structured with the same direct feedback loops, and achievements often require more resilience and extended effort.
However, this doesn’t mean that the satisfaction derived from overcoming real-world challenges is any less significant. In fact, the rewards can be even more fulfilling because they come from genuine effort and perseverance. Developing patience and determination to pursue your goals can lead to a profound sense of accomplishment that matches, if not exceeds, any game.
Rather than viewing life's difficulties as permanent barriers, see them as challenges to overcome. Each step forward is a testament to your strength and ability to adapt. With time and persistence, you'll find that life’s rewards are not only achievable but deeply gratifying.

/k fag here. I just got this female German shepherd. She's a year old. I can tell her last owners didn't do much to stimulate her energy. She's already bonded to me as well. Having her makes me want to go do shit Innawoods. Took her on a 4 hour hike at a local lake the other day. Pic rel. Really wore her and myself /out. It was really fun. What other activities can I do with her innawoods? Also tell me about your trailbuddy if you'd like.

I can tell you as someone who has raised two squirrels in my life that it DOES work like that. A tame squirrel will fall in love with you just like any dog would. You are essentially their moving shelter like a walking tree and YOU mean safety. Squirrels can be taken out to run amok and will always make sure they have a line of sight to you. A tame squirrel will climb high into trees and rest on branches BUT WILL COME DOWN when called and like a dog that won't listen, you can 'pretend' to walk away as if you are going to leave them, which spooks them into climbing back down. VERY INTELLIGENT ANIMAL! There are only two downsides to keeping a squirrel that I can think of. >Most people will hate your squirrel because they perceived it is a danger to children so taking it to a park can have mixed results.
>a squirrel has high energy output and needs regular exercise like owning a border Collie. This isn't as big an issue if you have a dog to also entertain the squirrel when you are not around.

Lots of people can run (Americans u can ignore this) but a few people know that when you run, or walk you get tired. And that by the time you realize it you're too tired to go back where you came from.
In an emergency situation spanning weeks, many people would simply die due to exhaustion. Underestimating distances, overestimating capabilities.
