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.

Don't care, I'm new.

Looking for some advice on avoiding nasty bugs, animals, and humans.

Gonna be walking/biking through woodsy areas outside of a town in Vermont at night.

Always have light sources handy, bug spray is a must (especially on feet/legs because ticks are the most concern). Don't be afraid of buying a bugnet to wear on your head, I did (I bought a whole bugnet jacket in fact) and holy shit when you're hunkering down for a rest or snack it can be an absolute goddamn lifesaver.

Consider lashing a can of bear spray to your pack. It's very unlikely you will need it but if you do it needs to be accessible at a moment's notice. Don't skimp on your food or comforts; make sure you can relax and eat well. If you aren't camping overnight a simple net (non-jungle) hammock is a good idea. If you are sleeping overnight just get a jungle hammock. Don't underestimate your water needs, or food. Don't get shot trespassing, don't be mistaken for an animal and get shot. Bring a camera, bring first aid and plenty of Advil. You'll need something that can double as a weapon but doesn't have to be explicitly a weapon; like a hatchet or hammer. Bowie knife if you like. Be prepared to get wet and again DON'T SKIMP, you need to be able to stay comfortable, warm, dry or the entire thing is ruined profoundly. Have a good time.
It depends on how bad the situation is (sometimes called “bug pressure”). Maybe you can get away with just a bug shirt, which is a long sleeve shirt with a tight weave that mosquitoes can’t bite through. Maybe you’ll need a full head net to keep the bugs from flying into your eyes and up your nose. Generally though, you’ll be good by treating your clothes with permethrin (Google it) and having a spray that does into your skin (DEET works the best).

Depends on what your doing. We can talk about bears, which can be dangerous, sure. But you’re much, much more likely to encounter something like raccoons or mice or squirrels or chipmunks or any other matter of small mammals who frequent popular campsites and absolutely will chew through a thin piece of synthetic fabric to snack on whatever you brought.
Don't forget to bring a towel!

This is a funny photoshop, r-right?
The difference in weight savings between a tarp and a tent and a alky stove or isobutane are in no way comparable. For the weight savings, they are significantly more annoying.

Do you like going on road trips?
155 replies and 18 images omitted. Click here to view.
Road trips are only expensive now because gas is through the roof :(

Same as always, except maybe a bit higher to budget for eating out more often

Camping is free

This is killing me guys
Just do a propane conversion on your car, propane is half the cost there like it is here right?
I once drove 1000 miles (15 hrs) over 2 days (875 + 125) to ski and give a 15 minute presentation, then drove back (500 + 500). Don't regret it but it was exhausting

>no one takes ceramic bowls camping they will be plastic
well now, that's just your stipulation, innit
maybe they are ultra minded about microplastics and so on and demand ceramic only. I wouldnt go so far to say that, the same for stating its definitely plastic

Remember. Playing dead won't save you from a bear attack. You either scare it off, kill it, manage to get to hard cover and safety, or die.
Hmm i notice the new wave of newfags seem to ignore the generals
Don't black bears and grizzlies both start eating their prey before it's fully dead?

Those all sound like skills that could lead to remote work. Any luck there?

What the fuck can I do with radishes?
Somebody told me to plant them because they're easy and fast growing but they taste fucking horrible, it's like you dipped a piece of raw turnip in pepper or something.
I have dozens of them.
They told you for the sake of increasing soil health. If you don't like them, compost them.
very based
Pickling them makes them more palitable. Also, this may sound stupid, butter and radish sandwiches are a thing apparently. Think my grandparents ate them

Things we do not speak of.

Wear safety equipment if exploring large/long ones, as pockets of noxious gasses can exist that can knock you out and kill you rather fast.
I once found a huge bloody fishing knife despite. My dad took it to the cops and never heard anything about it.

Oh, for the ants, if you have some ash handy, put it around the boat. It's diatomaceous, so it cuts their chitin like glass. If you don't want to hurt them, old coffee grounds or citrus works to help keep them away.

thats a way better shot, yes you likely have some form of magnetite or other rich iron ore. would be neat to see what the inside looks like with a slab saw.
I could take a belt sander to a corner of it.
Would that tell us anything?
no probably not, but if you could split it in half we could get a fresh surface and get a better idea of what the mineral making it magnetic is.
>split it in half
But wont that damage the rock?
yes but now you will have two rocks! You might even have a whole bunch of smaller rocks! How big is the sample anyway? If you want more info on it we need a clean fresh surface, your best bet would be to find someone to cut it in half with a diamond saw so we can see the inside nice and polished.
