He might be “living the dream” emphasis on the might be but he’s insufferable and extremely out of touch as some other anons have mentioned and every one of his videos is clickbait
No he's not. He's made videos about his Christian faith.
So he is anti MGTOW?

You will be given $1bil and 72 virgins if you can survive as an outlaw for 10 years.
Authorities will search for you only using conventional means - they cannot use anything invented post-1900 and only regular police will be looking for you. If they successfully arrest and take you back to a police station, it's over. They will not attempt to kill you, even if you attack them. They may use non-lethal methods of attack, however, and no one will jump in to stop you from dying from anything else.
You cannot leave the country (or state, if American). You begin at the edge of whatever settled area you are in currently and only with the clothes you are wearing now.
Can you pull it off?

This seems extremely easy. What kind of crimes do you have to commit to be considered an outlaw? Can I just commit tax crimes because I don’t want to go to hell

How about sugar cane instead?
There are other species you might want to consider. I don't know where you live but I live in New England and I use evening primrose flower stalks as stakes. They're biennial. They're weeds that grow like crazy in the shitty compact clay soil I have around my property.
I had a bunch of primrose pop up last summer/fall. Just left them to go to flower which made the bees happy
They're kinda cool. The flowers open in the early evening. Bumble bees love them. Grow squash near them. The same kinds of bugs pollinate both. Look at the shape and color. They're similar and I noticed the flowers of both are open in the early morning especially if they're in a kinda morning shady spot, like a western slope which is my front lawn. They're both open before it gets too hot. Direct hot sun makes them both close basically. What I'm really saying is that I grew a fuckton of spaghetti squash this year because I accidentally grew them near these things.

These things were THE shit in Europe until fairly recently, every village oldtimer worth his salt carried one. It was way more common than a belt axe. What happened? Are rambo knives just today's fashion or perhaps they are both fashion? Were these things ever popular in America and if not why didn't settlers bring them over?

Its a sappie i was looking for, fucking brain working overtime trying to remember a trip 15 years ago, they used that tool to funnel lumber down these wooden flumes from the top of the incline, very effective once you de-bark trees.
Denmark and inclines are not something I associate with each other.
Great for brush clearing in areas where its a bit too heavy/woody for a machete. Im in the tropics, so vines and grasses with more give to them are easier with something sharper/faster even if you can do it with a brush hook.
I was given one a few years ago by my mums partner who is a farmer. It's easily the best outdoor tool I've used.

They are great for general yard work and I always use one when we need to fell trees on our land. They are great for stripping branches of smaller twigs etc. and general cutting tasks. When taking care of my garden, it's much easier to just carry one billhook instead of shears, pruners and a pruning saw. I also use one regularly for chopping kindling.

For the faggots moaning about a sheath, I regularly carry it as is in my bag when out hiking. I've never cut myself or damaged any of my kit. They are also much safer than machetes.
I have a few, they were in an adobe house we use as warehouse in my family farm, they came with the property. No idea how old are they, some were in Ok condition, some were rusty. Despite this being Latam (Chile) machetes aren't that common here, they're a more tropical thing.

marketing department writing their story because it's important to hipsters like the gearfags that keep posting these threads.
Compared to your average pant, they are good. Nowhere near the best value because a wide legged pant with a good design at the waist isn't going to blow out at the crotch or knees for years. Buy the double knee Dickies pants and they will last just as long, plus you can buy like 8 of them for 1 fjallraven pant. But most pants though are made for /fa/ggots, so with that low standard in mind, they are exceptional to the competition.
Most the duluth trading/5.11 brand that aim for workwear chic are just made for overweight weekend warriors, so /fa/
the wool trousers by big ben in canada are also phenomenal. The plaid ones.
Also the nyco pants the military used to use, the m65 trousers are also although be prepared to resew the buttons on them. I have helikon tex ones that have lasted forever.
Both those options are much heavier than fjallraven or dickies though.
They don't make them in olive green

tsk tsk tsk
they also dont make size 26

i fell asleep sitting up and it hit me that a lot of sleeping gear is related to laying down.
i present a new concept: sit camping.
we've all fallen asleep while hunting, right?
so why fon't we just do that on purpose?

get yourself a wearable sitting pad, an army surplus marshmallow suit,
a poncho, and just lean against a tree next time you go to sleep.
this is the perfect ultralight camping setup. wanna leave? just stand up and start walking.
this is also good for innawoods shit because you can immediately react to a threat.
You know what, this is going to sound schitzo af but i have been using old fire fighting pants with the striping removed to sit in the wet grass and in summer I legit think I could just sleep with that on. don't know about sitting upright though.
Then again I have fallen asleep while spelunking from tiredness so we'll see.
i lean against a tree with my head in the crook of a branch or something like that so it's supported.
Hmm lots of soft trees here with ditches so if it doesn't rain this might work, like you said it happends enough when I'm tired amd sitting around
>soft trees
i wear a beanie or put my hood up or something like that for padding

We used to do that with my dad and brother in overnight hikes to the mountains. Just lie down in the dirt and sleep. We had to keep watch for pumas and being able to react quickly was valuable. Not something you can do in cold or wet climate, but in arid land, it's fine.

We called it mexican camping

Hello frens, i'm a scot and looking into getting into fishing. I'll be doing some fishing in a large loch known to hold trout up to 3lb and a river that holds lots of salmon, roach and trout. What sort of rod and reel should I get? I was looking at something like an 11 foot daiwa ninja rod with a size 5000 reel but i'm clueless honestly.
both the rod and reel seem a tad bit big. A 2,40 or 2,20ish meter rod and a 2 or 3000 reel should do fine and be a decent platform to begin with
>a river that holds lots of salmon, roach and trout
you'll want two rods for that
a 9 foot 6 weight for roach and trout and a 12 foot 8 weight spey rod for swinging flies for salmon and sea trout
as for loch fishing, i've never done it, so good luck.

Thanks for the advice, I wasn't sure about the reel size but that does seem to be a more sensible option.

6 and 8 weight are terms specific to fly fishing right? the only type of fishing i've done before was sea angling on the shoreline with my grandpa when I was young so i'm more familiar with a conventional reel and using a relatively large rod.

Would you recommend fly fishing over going for a normal setup?

Got a couple of these baofeng UV5r’s for cheaper than dirt to mess around innawoods with my buddies where we don’t have service for our phones

I have heard about these things being good for the price and I figured since I didn’t know anything about radios I should probably try this out until I know more about them to get something more expensive

I’m curious what /out/s experience is with these and if anybody has any beginners tips

thinking about getting a few of these for buds that fish big money offshore tournaments so we can swap info.. VHF is compromised by going to scan mode, and scrambling is a pain in the ass. Using Iridium text now, to expensive to talk. .. Old timers used to use SSB, another pain in the ass...
if it matters not going to be used in US waters.
>pic very related
Should work fine, depends how far apart are you guys from each other baofengs are basically Line of sight to horizon usage. You could benefit from one of those 42 inch foil antennas or a magnetic car antenna as high as you can get it on your boat. MURS could work just fine out there as it's a couple vhf channels set aside for free usage you would have to factory reset your baofeng and change it to English. Don't use ham channels without a license

>VHF is compromised by going to scan mode,
I am not sure what you mean by this.
If you use a radio, people can easily tell when you are transmitting, it doesn't matter which band you are on. If you 'scramble' the speech (some radios have this feature), other radios have built in descramblers and can still understand what you are saying.
The only way to have some semblance of privacy is to use AES encryption. Even though it is against the FCC rules, I think a few Anytone models have encryption because the Chinese don't give a flying fuck. Motorola also has them as well, but they will cost a fortune.
Can anyone tell me how difficult it is to use the digital bands to send a text message . I have a baofang and I think I’ll park it with an old android to send messages In the woods and if I can do that I might try to program something with that . Am I naive for thinking so

Have you eaten San Pedro cactus before? What was your experience?
I've done virtually everything besides mescaline and it's probably just the same shit. Great way to avoid your issues I'm sure but you aren't going to learn anything from it.
What about depression/ ptsd. Does it do anything for that?
The drug alone won't fix it. Heavy doses 20g+ of shrooms can alleviate the symptoms but there is no miracle pill. If you are really serious about it, there are people who you can pay and they will dose you up on shrooms and then give you a therapy session for the entire duration of your trip. That is from my understanding the only way to remove persistent treatment resistant mental illnesses, however this is illegal so finding these people can be difficult.

I'm going to attempt my first solo overnight soon, still collecting gear, learning how to tie knots and start fires because I'm very new, but I want to pick a place that's away from roads and by a stream or some form of running water and I found pic related. The only problem is that it's downstream from a fishery. Is there any contaminants I should be worried about from a fish farm that may wash into the stream? Things that can't be removed by simply boiling water?
I have not scouted it out yet, will be soon I just work a lot, just curious if there's some additional items I should invest in or just abandon this spot and find a new one.

better look at the stream in question
saugahatchee creek auburn, AL
I always filter my water. Don't care how clean it looks or how fresh the stream I always do it.
what do you use to filter it?
Sawyer mini and a life straw bottle. I'm seriously considering just getting a katadyn filter and being done with it because they last forever and the mini is a pain to use.
I can't stand filters. They are more expensive in my country than in the US and they just seem unreliable. Currently using a bandana or millbank bag as a pre-filter and boiling if making food/hot drinks or chlorine dioxide if I just need drinking water.
