Made the mistake of diving into a reservoir barefoot while camping. Sliced my foot up reeeeal nice. Was on the first day of a 2 day camping trip too. However, I did get to see how well my duct tape worked as a bandage. My bros felt bad for me, so they rolled joints for me all night. That silver lining.

When I started off I wanted to buy high end stuff, and I realised that I always tried to buy the best and the cooler it looks the better.

In 180°ed away from that, but it took me a while. Here a couple of tips:

Don't buy stuff you can DIY or already have yourself. There were a bunch of things where I believed that I had to buy a new thing. But look around and you will find something that works just as well.

Dont buy stuff for looks. I user to have tactical knives because they looked super cool. Battoning is retarded and for carving I use the same Opinel i got for 10£ which I use to gut my fish. To chop wood I have my own, small hatchet which was like 15£. Tadaa, instead of spending upwards of 80£ for a knive, I spent less than 30 quid and it does more for me. And both those things do better what the knife did alone, the hatchet won't break and the opinel cuts better.

Don't buy stuff you won't need. This one seems obvious. But if you are going not far from home, especially in the beginning, you don't need to bring the same stuff you would use for a weekend. Also: don't buy food, make your own. Learn some recipes that are good for on the way, like hiney roasted peanuts. This will save you a TON of money, since MREs are fucking expensive (on that note I recommend that you can also bring insta noodles with you, they are something I like to cool when I'm /out/ and can't fish, and also as a backup food.)

Cut corners, but don't be cheap. Read reviews before you buy, and if in doubt, ask /out/. There are always gear and q&a threads.

Opinel's are alright, but they're not that robust for a folder in the blade. Soft food prep and they're great, but I'd avoid bone slicing or any harder wood carving (knots). I wouldn't put the tip in anything but soft foods.

Cheap hardware hatchets are good enough, though the edges usually suck and aren't sharp, albeit they're good enough for splitting and chopping.

O, and I'd recommend something like a Byrd Cara Cara if you want a more robust folder that can handle harder work.

Probably not much more than an Opinel of equivalent size, but you get better steel and thicker stock for the blade, plus easier opening and a pocket clip.
I would still prefer a folding knife with an actual lock.
It does have a lock. You turn the metal ring once opened and it sits in place. That's perfect for Germany, since AUTOMATIC locks are banned (so are blades >12cm, blades you can open with one hand and so on?
Idk how the shit looks, it's the taste, boy.

Sure, but you don't want to.
No the ki... government won’t allow it.
There are ways that property taxes can be minimized. Raw land is often taxed very low, so you'll want to put a temporary structure on there without affecting the assessment.
In a developing or undeveloped country yes

How do you keep your phone from dying in cold weather?
Was hiking in 20 degree weather and it kept shutting itself down.
28 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
Smartphones are not really built for such weather conditions. If you have to take it, remove battery, store it somewhere warm, but dry. Use phone only when in need, preferably not outside but during stops like overnight camping or lunch break. Most smartphones also provide ultra battery mode which will help a lot if you use it to navigate.

Apart from that you should learn to orienteer with a map and compass. I'm pretty sure you'll find lots of tutorials in your language but the most basics are like this:

> use the compass to find north
> align your map so it's top is facing it
> find your position (look for landmarks and near you to help you)
> determine the azimuth (deviation from north) and distance to your target
> if it's longer hike, find some landmarks inbetween and use them to orient
> set it on your compass according to what you found out
> now you know which way to walk
How do you phone cuties?
I've got a "rugged" smartphone, and it works fine in -30 Celsius which is -22 Fahrenheit. It's rated to work at -20 Celsius, but I think since I only take it out of my pocket for a few mins at a time, it doesn't have time to drop down to that temperature. 10300 mAh battery means that even if battery capacity drops dramatically, I still have enough charge left.

So basically, keep yours in your pocket close to your skin so it stays warm and only take it out when necessary.
He hasn't talked to a woman in ten years anon.
Yet you people never pass up an opportunity to tell people you don't use a phone. Pure attention seeking.

They're building a massive windpark a few hours drive away from where I live.
240 km of construction road is being built straight through previously untouched, wild nature. Contruction vehicles will be driving up and down that road with equipment until the massive thing stands finished in 2020.

16% of the population of the planet still don't even have power and cook their food by burning animal feces. (which is horrible environmentally as well as for their health). Do we just leave them in the dark to reduce energy consumption?

Also, the important thing to remember is that 71% of the world's CO2 emissions come from the top 100 polluting corporations, framing the issue as a personal moral one that could be solved by energy efficient bulbs alone is unhelpful.

If you attempt to flaunt the "fact" that you make more money than someone else in some sort of shit attempt at one upping someone, you 100% do not make more money than that person. You are a poorfag plagued by poor decisions and delusions of grandeur.
First thing to know:
Your pic related is nowhere near what vanlife actually is
agreed with the point of not being a bum living in a van not much else
This, and it shouldn't cost you over $1k to do the inside unless you decide to go fucking nuts with shit like power, heated showers and other excessive shit.
Even with a simple solar setup to charge a phone/laptop and maybe run a small TV you can get it under a grand.
You can get it down really cheap if you cut corners with recycled material, camping gear and do away with power. Nate Murphy has two vids on builds he did; one is a $100 build in the back of a station wagon and the other is a $1k van build he did in 17 days. Both well worth a watch

Hey anons, I'm fairly new to being /out/ so please give me your best and most honest answers. I'm planning to walk across america sometime in the near future and have heard many mixed things on what equipment to bring. I'm also dirt poor so I'm trying not to spend much on experimenting with what I might like. What would you bring on such a trip, and how would you prepare? I'm planning to start from where I currently live, San Diego, and make my way to the northern east coast, if that helps.
