The scary truth is there are simply just a ton of hermits living in national forests that like to kill and rape people that look like harmless bohemian campers and there isn't much we can do about them.

Avoid weirdos with really really beat up gear and overly dirty clothes when you're hiking.

I have an xj and live in Idaho. It's a beast. All I did was put a cheap lift kit on it and replace some sensors on it and it's been amazing. It definitely overheats doing a lot of climbing if it's really hot out. My Toyota is a lot better for driving in hot weather but the jeep will go anywhere. It's an amazing vehicle.
I love my Jeep. Currently running a 6.5" long arm lift kit and 35s. Runs great, even with 270k on the clock. They'll take you anywhere and last forever as long as you keep up with maintenance.

What about a 2002 F150 4x4 5.4 for the woods. The crew cab short bed seems practical enough. Early 2000s trucks seem narrow enough for most trails in national forests

it's my first baitcast reel. i thought x4 would be easier than x8
isn't that the precursor of the kariki?
Its not any easier or more difficult for casting. 8x is smoother and more quiet coming through the line guides. It also casts slightly further than 4x.
Like >>2501717 said go for an 8 carrier braid. It's smoother and stronger. The only thing I use 4 strand for is in the kelp cuz it can saw through the strands under load.
oh ok thank you very much

Wait, so what does this actually have to do with /out/? This is just a missing person's case. She didn't disappear on a trail or in a National Park or anything. She just disappeared in the city, like a typical missing persons case.

You also edited it to call her a he, him, his, which is different from the actual article. Why did you change your quote from what the article says?

yeah, nothing in this thread really adds up... the whole thing is fishy... hmmmmm
Jasvir Parmar is described as a 23 year-old South Asian woman, 5’5", 130 pounds, with long straight black hair and brown eyes.

I discovered wool this past year and I've been on a wool buying spree ever since. Merino base layers are amazing for both activewear and sleepwear. Wool blankets are amazing for sleeping under and staying cozy while sitting around. Thick 100% wool jackets beat the fuck out of down for any situation where it might get wet, burned or torn, and are much better suited for stuff like hunting and fishing. Obviously the downside of wool is that it's heavy, so making anorexic gram counters seethe could be seen as an added bonus.

But just be aware of the quality and thickness of the wool you're buying because it varies a hell of a lot both in terms of softness and insulation. There's a very high correlation between price and quality when it comes to wool, regardless of brand; cheap wool blends tend to suck.
Also I forgot to mention the most important part - socks. Life changing stuff not having cold clammy feet during cold weather hikes. I recently went hiking with a thick pair of -30 winter socks and when I got back to my car after 6 hours of being in below 0 weather I realized that I had somehow let a bunch of water into my boot and didn't even realize it (probably when I walked on a frozen puddle and fell through like a retard). My entire pant leg down by ankle was soaked, but I felt nothing on my feet. It's like magic.

Where in the contingent US can I camp for a prolonged period of time without being molested by smoky the bear or seeing a single other camper/hiker. I'm talking more than a month. This country seems like an open air prison, everything is owned and fed land is almost always restricts the camping I want to do. It seems that dispersed camping locations make you move every few days.

Im not doing this for fun, I just want peace. I want to go away and be in seclusion without being bothered.

The only caveat is where ever I go has to be vehicle accessible so I can carry the supplies I need. I have the money for some off-road tires, the only question now is where to go.

I just want peace.

You've pretty much laid out the rules of your game and it sounds like the only real answer is if you're willing to go the extra mile to risk trespassing large acreage/ having a gun shoved in your face for the "seclusion" you want.
>Has to be vehicle accessible.
You shot yourself in the foot with this one, if you can't hike it in/ out you don't even have the slightest chance, and even then you still need to be going off trail. Can you read a map? Triangulate position? Forage wild edibles and cook anything without trace and detection?
You're gonna McCandyass hard lmao.

You must buy LeBrand™ and make sure the logo is as visible as possible otherwise all the other girls at high-school will make fun of you for being poor. When in doubt, make yet another post about it. You can't just go to your local Decathlon or Walmart or village market and get the second-cheapest one that fits you because what if you don't get the right® one? What if the selfies you'll take of your highly demanding harsh outdoor expedition will look unappealing? A serious debate of at least 150+ replies must be made on such matters. Our grandparents never got anything done because they had no such opportunities of rumination.

Once you are done with polar fleece, you must ponder on everything else down to the socks and underwear. Your penis will shrivel up and die of embarrassment in a 10 set supermarket brand boxers. Your feet will stink much more if in the not-right® brand of cotton, the one made next to that Chinese corrugated metal shack running on child slave labor you would have bought if not asking for recommendations on what brand™ socks to buy. Don't think it's because you never crouch anymore to actually wash your feet in your stand-up modern shower thinking the water will get them, it's in fact because of the seedoils. McDonalds being a brand™ is heritage at this point and certainly more appealing than having to cook for yourself like a poor person. Cooking is good every once in a while for special recipes like Oreo cake and sauce drenched Pasta, deep fried in cheese and lard (it's healthy because it has no seed oils).

Again, I highly suggest anyone interested in mountains and the outdoors to consider moving to California. As an alternate suggestion, I hear Colorado is pretty great too!

I used to consider myself pretty moderate politically, but being surrounded by homeless people and criminals running wild in the streets while Gascon is pushing to not prosecute people is making me more and more conservative.

I wass pretty moderate too then covid hits and somehow things got more shit, bikefags get a bunch of streets closed, RVs taking over lake merced, panhandlers everywhere now, peaceful protests in walgreens. Truly remarkable the lows this state can reach.
>but being surrounded by homeless people and criminals running wild in the streets while Gascon is pushing to not prosecute people is making me more and more conservative.
One of the big things that really pushed me over the edge with this was finding out just how many of the homeless people here are from completely different parts of the country, and worse how many gave up relatively normal lives to come be homeless in California. If homelessness were just about down on their luck locals and therefore a finite problem I'd be more in favor of pro-homeless solutions, but in reality it'll just make things worse because it makes CA even more attractive as a destination for criminals and drug addicts who are sick of trying to hold some sort of life together elsewhere and would rather move to LA and be a bum on the streets subsisting on charity and cheap meth.

Only a couple days left in the rut, you got your buck yet?

I hunt for meat but not trophies, saw my first buck of the season this week, and missed him twice, have never missed. pisses me off.

I've gotten a couple of smaller does, and with only about 40 days left in the season, can only hope I can get 6 more out of the 9 acres i hunt. I just put feeders up yesterday for the first time..

I'm hunting in a kind of bowl nestled up to a mountain, have a game trail that runs through an old farm pond and dried up creek, the pond holds just enough water to be a watering hole this time of year, have put my feeders in the dry parts of the pond.. Hoping to head out here in about 20 minutes and get lucky.

was using trails end estrous mix the other day when I pulled the buck in, hoping i can have similar results today.

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 corncob pipe and a pouch of either Captain Black 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 $25, still. God help you.

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:

Are you buying bulk amounts of tobacco or are you growing your own? If so, how's that going? I've been thinking of growing some but I don't have a whole lot of space to do so
Just because it's natural, doesn't mean it belongs on out.
We don't discuss weed here for a reason.
I've ordered tobacco twice from them and no complaints on my end. Everything showed up as ordered.

I got their English sampler to try to educate my palate a little on English tobaccos, I got a little disappointed because that overwhelming Latakia made them all taste more or less the same though that could just be me being an uncultured swine.

Yeah I could read that in the reviews, I was looking for personal experience from you fags, anyone ever tried it or got a better recommendation?
But you do discuss boots, jackets, compasses, walking sticks, etc. do you not? For many, especially throughout history, a pipe has been just as important of an accessory in the outdoors as a compass or a comfortable pair of boots. Denying that pipes haven’t been an important part of outdoors culture over the past few centuries is an admission to your ignorance of outdoors culture.

Its thr ratio of pipe smokers to frozen car doors.
Id assume so. Squirrels stay away if I'm pipe smoking
Wgat state do you live in? Id reccomend going into antique shop and buying one. In Local rual CA i paid maybe 20 bucks for this pipe (pictured). Its an english one and has worked well for a few years. The tobacco is from a local smoke shop that offers much variety by the OZ (5$)

Former suburb city fag here. The more time I spend outdoors, the more I become sensitive on sustainability and eco friendliness. I've become fan of brands like Fjallraven that often use their G-1000 mix with cotton on many of their products and I want to know if you know any other brands that make the effort in incorportating natural fabrics in the apparel? Especially for alpine/xc ski and mounteneering apparel

>sustainability and eco friendliness
Patagonia recycles their plastic and gear

vaude and mammut outdoor are truly eco friendly and sustainable. but you will pay some really high prices for them.
ironically i was thinking of getting a fjalraven wool button up shirt thinking its some great thing and see that its only 20% wool WTF trash
for weather-proofing layers? pretty much.
i'm a fan of silicone impregnated fabrics. its synthetic but its also one of the most inert harmless chemicals out there.
insulation layers can be a bit more interesting.
most myog resources you'll find are going to be people putting together modern gear with synthetic materials but you can just take/buy their patterns and make the same shit out of materials of your choice.
recycled synthetics are a shit solution to eco problems because they aren't the same as non recycled synthetics. the porosity of the fibers is very different after the recycling process and it winds up making recycled rain shells perform like shit. the difference between my standard marmot precip jacket and the shitty recycled one i accidentally bought is immediately noticeable.
