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.

What do you guys do to get your /out/ fix when it’s cold and/or raining during the winter? I live in Northern California where there’s plenty of beautiful redwood trails and hiking to do near the beaches. Normally the cold is bearable but evening being a native it gets fookin frosty this time of year. Bonus thread: What does /out/ look like?

mfw I live on an island lacking in the completely-natural scenery department

there's always a fucking farm or some shit to ruin it.. no views of grand mountains or even huge plains..

TFW live in a country with basically no wilderness left
Most forests are artificial, most soil is polluted, rivers are filled with industrial poison from France and Germany.
Light pollution is omnipresent, can barely see any stars in most of the country. Sound pollution ensures that even when you're in a forest, you'll always hear the hum of a nearby motorway.
Anyone else know this feel?

Unless you subscribed to the paper and had it sent there, probably not. Anybody could go out and buy a paper every day. That doesn't actually prove that you're residing there, you need something that was posted to your name at that address,

So if I buy land and enter into an agreement upon purchase that sign posts and a permanent liveable dwelling aren't allowed to be built on said land, how much trouble would I get into if I put up a signpost and send myself mail (after a few trials with the postman using an altered nearby postcode to help)?
Oi m8 you got a loicense for your existence?

Hey /out/, is there anyway you can make a simple A frame tent with only sticks and a bedsheet? (Hardmode) no lines or stakes.

nice African tickler you got there
Why would you use a bedsheet and not a tarp?
Make freestanding stick frame, drape sheet.

All you have to do anon.
spent a bunch of time looking for construction office jobs. they mostly all sucked and i would lose them for after months. then i stopped paying rent on a house and stopped having to work but would do small truck moves off CL for cash

then i got into weed harvest which was immediatly followed by the crab harvest. two fun lucritive jobs back to back leaving me 8months out the year to travel the USA for a couople years

one day i thought INEED A JOB and i started looking up oilfield technician jobs texas and felt really guilty about it. then i read a post on my fb "who wants to work at my lab in berkeley" where i was born and near hometown
so i got a job at an oil refinery distilling butane hash oil into 98% pure THC oil. and 3months the company splits up and all the engineers leave the company and now we have this half million distilation machine we dont use and i spent the day twisting joints and putting stickers on child prrof packaging for reduced pay
I doubt that friend.
I go /out/ in rugged wilderness.

There is no "we".
But yes, Yeti is a solid brand. They mostly specialize in down bags and jackets, and the quility should be great from what I've heard.

My GF just bought a winter down bag from them.
They make very expensive well insulated coolers. If you have the money and think that a $300 bombproof 7 day cooler over a $40 Coleman 5 day cooler is worth it, then good for you.

Its not much but it was everything I dreamed about for the past month. Feels good
How hard is float tubing? Seems like carrying around all that extra gear just to get on the water is a pain in the ass.
Float tubing is good if you have ponds in your area that are in the middle of no where. There is a pond I like to fish about 3 miles off the road that is perfect for a float tube. Anytime I have road access I just put in my kayak.

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:
