Get yourself a stainless Mora. Never oiled this, it's seen heavy use, batoning, wood carving, food prep. Any damage I've had was fixed with a little emery cloth and a sharpening stone.

Does anyone on /out/ homestead? I’m 18 and have a dream of owning a small farm to live on in the future. Is there anything anyone can tell me? What would the cost of starting a small farm with a garden and maybe chickens or goats. Is this dumb, what should I have on the farm, and how much should I save up? I hope to start the farm before I’m 40.

I'd also like to know this, and somewhere without other people there, no "amenities" or nothing just a forest I can walk into for like half an hour and set up a tent in a small clearing and not have to worry about other faggots coming across us. Might be a bit farfetched in England but I'm hoping some of the larger forests are still deep/thick enough that this is possible.

>>1457325
Forest of Dean would be your best bet, but the uk isn't great for getting out into the woods. Our hills are great for this, and you can camp in privacy no troule. If you want to explore woodland then your best bet might be to fly out to Germany. There's literally a 20 pound return flight from London to Germany with ryanair. Fly out friday night after work, and come back on monday.

thoughts on permaculture?
my grandparents are too old to cultivate their small plot so they told me I can do whatever I want with it, provided they will get some potatoes and strawberries.
I was thinking of trying permaculture over there. Does it even make sense to start it on such a small plot? Entire land is like 1.7acres but I'd assume maybe only 0.5acre is good for gardening use. Also, how do I get started with permaculture?
Also I wanted to clear the pond, tear down the old dock and build a new one. Any tips on how I should get started? I'm a city dweller and don't have much experience doing these /out/ things

Start by finding the food producing plants that grow native in your area thay fit the conditions of the site. They will require little input once established. Also look into soil building. Adding compost and "chop and dropping" herbaceous plants will do this over time. Better soil will hold water and nutrients better and allow you to expand what you can easily grow.

I'm planning to move to a new state and live innawoods while building stuff.

I need to get my drivers license.

DMV expects legal residence address. Land I'm living on is owned by me, but no street address.

I will have private mailbox but that doesn't count.

What do I do? I have no friends or family here.

>you could call it either way depending how poor you are. Not that the law would be hard to get around, you just need to buy 2 parcels in different names and then move from one to the other once a week.

I actually thought about something similar getting around Britistani planning-permission laws. Essentially you can't "live" on your patch of woods, but you could quite legally build a little shed for shelter and rest while you conduct "forestry/agricultural activities". Naturally these facilities could contain cooking, toilet, shower facilities etc etc just no sleeping facilities.

>arrive at land at 7am
>do what you wanna do all day, have kitchen/shitter/washroom to use
>11pm
>drive a few miles down the road and sleep in your van
>wake up 8 hours later and go make breakfast back on your land

I think it would be hard to take you to court for "living" on a premises that you do not sleep at overnight. As a large part of the 'living' definition must surely be based on sleeping and having it as a "home"

Freedom is like a cock. Stroke it and it gets hard. Ignore it and it shrivels up.
>>
>>1457215
Yeah, you're right. People do that in the US as well. It's pretty cheap to build a shed that you can't live in but do whatever else in.

In the case of my county you can live on your land 6 days in a row but then you have to leave for the 7th, so you wouldn't even need to take off every night.
>>1457220
it's not one or two bad apples, you guys are ALL bad apples.

right? We already fine people more money than they'll make in their lives and then toss them in prison for a few years as well for carelessly starting fires.

that doesn't fix the problem though. So we outlawed the entire class of living. You can't do it here. Hell, you can't legally have a fire anywhere here for 6 months out of the year, we have no problem getting rid of people that light fires on their own property which then spread to ours. What part of "we don't want you here" are you not understanding?

I'd guess they'd notice someone building a 10 foot bonfire next to their RV in broad daylight

I've never hunted before and I dont have any hunting friends to teach me. I feel like hunting is a kind of sport where your daddy has to teach you how to get into it but I never had that.
I'd like to hunt deer and maybe waterfowl and other shit in the future. I was thinking about picking up a Remington 870 and just going at it on public lands next deer season. I dont really want to splerg a bunch of money on equipment like stands and that right yet. Just me, a pack, a gun, and a good knife, I think I can just spend more later when I get into it.
Is there anything wrong with just winging it by yourself? Do you think I should start with something other than deer? Any tips?

The Catskills don’t require a bear canister (unless that’s a new regulation there). AFAIK only the high peaks wilderness area in the Adirondacks requires one from spring-fall. But yes, the reason for the canister is because downstaters come up and feed the fucking bears, either purposely or inadvertently

What are you wearing?

I'm wearing these. Don't be fooled that isn't rated to -50 degrees. That's, "50 Below ®," which is a registered USPTO business phrase and is of course fucking meaningless. However, they are really thick and comfy as as anything I've worn yet.

Can someone recommend a men’s headband that won’t make me look like a middle aged thot, preferably in merino wool. I sweat even when it’s -20 out, so I take the hat off and hike for a bit more and sweat more, take a break, and then I get icicles on my head/hair and then my ears get cold. I’m thinking a headband might solve my issues.
So if some of you autists can scour the internet for all headbands, compare all the reviews, and report back with the best option, thanks in advance.
>>
>>1457169
>that won’t make me look like a middle aged thot
This depends on the thickness of the band and your hair style. Honestly, a thick beanie that has been cut and hemmed will work quite well.
>>
>>1455758
Old carhartt socks were 87% wool, and soft was fuck. Excellent boot socks. Last I checked wool content is down around 60% though, and they fall apart fast now. Anyone got an alternative recommendation for a thick wooly boot sock? I have tried smartwool and I don't like them as much as the ones with the thick knit feel.

These are the ones I used to love when they were higher wool content and better quality. Ideally I'm trying to find something similar, but once again, higher wool content.

I don't like the way it wraps around you head cutting off vision to anything but right above you.

I'm gonna play around with a spreader bar of sorts on non-spreader hammock.

Could use trekking poles but that would only have two points of contact.

Might try notching about 1" OD schedule 200 PVC.

I've found a hammock with built in bug screen will hold a quilt nice and snug but not compressed if flipped over. That works out because by the time you need a quilt its too cold for bugs.
