I just bought a skillet, how do you clean it and care for it when you go /out/ (and at home)?
I know it's not a good looking Lodge, but in Italy they are expensive and I don't have that kind of money. Pic related, also best coffee maker for the outdoors.

Clean after use? Put it back on the heat. Once it's hot, add a little water - you want the water to hiss and boil quickly, not soak - and scrape it out with your spatula. Use a metal spatula. You'll melt a plastic one. Once you've steam cleaned it with your exploding steam bubbles, pour the water out, repeat if needed, then wipe it dry and coat it with a little oil.

Dont use soap.
This is a cool trick

>Don't use soap
Because it ruins the seasoning?
Here's how I typically clean mine. I put it back on the heat just a little bit to warm the oil and gunk on the pan.
Then I use a GSI pot scraper and scrape off all the gunk into the bin.
Then I put some new fat into the pan, warm it a little bit and coat the bottom.
I may take some paper towel and rub the fat all over the pan.
Very rarely do I use water at all. If there's a real horror show of crap stuck to the pan I might boil some water in the pan.
How much are lodge pans in the EU? I got mine for like $15
yup this works, though in my experience it's not hard to get down to bare iron if you do it too often. i generally save the extensive scraping (with plastic scraper) for when the pan is cool.
i think water would be in the situations when the cooking has been done a bit wrong (as far as cast iron cooking goes)

What do you guys think of vostok amphibias?
That screen is gonna get scratched to shit, and it's also not as waterproof as cheaper watches with an altimeter.
It has gorilla glass, so it's not gonna be easy to scratch, and it has an ip68 rating, which is fairly good but, as you said, there's probably cheaper watches with an altimeter that are more waterproof.
recently got a Rangeman, the altimeter is based on pressure and isn't locked, every time the weather changes, your height does too. If you're going for climb the altimeter is useless because all it's measurements will have been changed by the time you reach your destination. the compass works fine tho

Always got bit by those little lizards in southern backyards and got bit by a duck once.
snakes are fucking stupid
I don't have any of those symptoms, so yeah I'm good.
Yeah as a kid I'd pick up snakes all the time and occasionally they would bite me. There were no poisonous snakes where I lived so it didn't matter
alligator lizards, a non-venomous snake, and a bird.

Building material ofc. I never knew Sitka spruce for being an excellent firewood lmao
It's not ideal, but it works in a pinch. Youre going to want to make an upside down smile on the side you want it to fall on. Saw through the other side to the base of the cut, when it falls hack off all the limbs, the saw the trunk into workable, movable chunks. Youre going to want to let it cure for a whole winter before you start to process it.

I mean, can I just fell a Sitka spruce literally anywhere in Alaska? Don’t I need to give the DNR $15 or something?
I'm a burger, about to finish school, and unless one particular job opportunity materializes I'm planning on fishing this summer.

Any tips? I'm 100% flexible on timing and location. The more money the better, but all I really want is enough for car insurance/gas/rice and beans.

I’m planning on moving to a cabin out in the woods about 1 hour away from the nearest town.
I don’t have the actual cabin yet but I plan to build it with the help of family that lives near. I have anxiety as to how I am going pay for the cabin, I was thinking of milling wood but I’m scared it would be too difficult to move logs from A-B.

Any help would be great. I’m in Ontario.
I mean, what do you have for a vehicle? What kind of funds and knowledge are you bringing to this? How do you plan to put food on the table once it's built?

So i'm up innawoods near jackman ME. Last few weeks I've had a abandoned yearling moose wandering the trail up to my cabin. The snow is so deep that it goes up to it's shoulders if it steps off my snowmobile track. It hasn't left the trail in a week, it just sleeps on it and now hasen't stood up for 2 days. I had pretty much decided to 'deal with it' when for the first time in 2 months some tourists drove up on snowmachines (trespassing on private property no less) and decided to call the Wardens.

So just got done talking to them, they are coming out in the morning and hopefully this fellow is going in the freezer unless they evac him which is highly unlikely given the location.

did you pet it? how soft is it
Warden is a local chick who i've met before and got along with. Also i'm 15 miles from the nearest road so moving it anywhere is a total bitch of a job, even a yearling is probably bigger than she can move or tow by herself. She can probably get to within a few miles on a logging road before she has to switch to a snowmachine but still.

I doubt she can actually load it onto a tow behind sled or get it onto a trailer without quartering it. Not letting me keep it turns a paid morning snowmobile ride into a day long guts and gore covered hell trip in a snow storm.

The weather is such that getting covered in blood would present a legitimate hypothermia risk.
Fuzzy and soft, i had to push it off to the side because it was on the trail and the snow off to the side is so deep i'd get stuck. The hairs on it's hump are 5-6 inches long.
sad little fucker looks weak. either feed it or feed it to yourself or the wolves. how many wolves in ME these days?
I was going to feed it to myself but i have to wait and let it suffer until tomorrow because some trespassing idiots called the popo.

As to wolves officially none but all the coyotes are hybridized.

It's a question, not a comment.
Oh, I see now thank you.
Few of those specific species in my area. The problem birds here are mostly sparrows. Very few people realize that sparrows are not a native bird to the new world. They have been an invasive species that have only been here for less than 200 years. They don't have a natural predator that has adapted to their quick reproduction rate. They are omnivorous and can completely ruin veggie gardens.

Nothing wrong with being unruley and killing shit. I dont really mind people but damn these skates out here. So many. I hate them so much oh and crabs too. They wanna hurt you for no god damn reason and of course satans creations the horseshoe crab. Kill em all i say.
You need to know two knots, Bowline and clove hitch. 3-Strand splicing is also good to know. A lot of old school skipper do eaglesplices on the net but you can get away with a clovehitch with a backhitch.
Otherwise, the most important skill for you to have is to be able to cook well and fast.
I do maintenance at a state park. It's not much, but it's honest work.
Do you literally just spend all day watching to see if shit's on fire?

I pack roast beef soup sachets along with uncle bens tomato rice and basil. Simmer them all together with chopped salami and chorizos. Add herbs and pepper and chopped onions and garlic.

Tastes great, fantastic for cold nights. Can usually feed 3 or 4 people.

noodles, eggs and pic related.

I hike 80% of the time alone and often end up off trail and often find adverse terrain that is rather risky to keep going without having any kind of backup, that terrain might be either river crossings or steep slopes. So my question is, does it make sense to bring some type of rope? I have no climbing or mountaineering background so what would be the best knot/system to use that would give me the possibility to retrieve said rope?

They wouldn't need helicopters to find you if you're at a bus stop, and either way a hospital would be happy to take your money for shitting in their beds.
imagine a helicopter find a sick and lost hiker,it doesn't land but over a megaphone a man tells him the trail is a quarter mile to the south and that if he doesn't move along he is going to land and arrest him
i have a dog,she would go to dog jail,i wouldn't have her bail money,hospital would compound problems,the helicopter does not separate man and mans best friend
>if I keep presenting this as absurd, eventually people will gibs me dat
Being extricated from wilderness and taken to civilization is not so much more wonderful and exalted than just already being in civilization. I ride in a helicopter from somewhere you didn't want to be is not that much better if you've got nowhere to be on the other end of the ride either. And either way, you can go to the emergency room and get medical treatment and your insurance will pay, or if you have no insurance you can get treated and just stiff the hospital when you screw off. Hell, if you're in a city you can literally just call 911 and a special vehicle called an ambulance will come and take you to get medical aid much more quickly and effectively than SAR teams who don't know where you are and are probably a long way from the hospital.
When the helicopter takes you to the hospital, the same shit would happen to your dog as if the ambulance took you there. It's not like there's some special magic hospital just for hikers where all the rules are different and life is peachy keen.
