I live in the UK and want to get out into nature after a decade of being a housebound NEET.

How dumb of an idea is it to walk to the nearest forest an hour away and just hang out there until the following morning. No tent, no hammock, just me and my bag with water, food and an umbrella. I mean it's summer so I'm not gonna die or anything. I just really wanna spend some time out in the wild but I have no money so this is the best I can come up with for now.

Anon, I'm going to overlook the obvious point of beration here to point out that if you're putting yourself in a compromising situation like you are proposing to do it is probably better to have someone around who'll be aware of where you are and able to call for help in your stead just in case, y'know, you die or get injured, something like that.

I'm going an hour outside of town, to flat woodland, to sit in a clearing overnight. I'd have to go out of my way to twist my ankle, the worst that'll happen is the heavens open up and drown me in which case I walk home in an hour.

If I was going somewhere remote, somewhere really /out/ then I'd take precautions. But this is like sleeping in a park overnight, if I die from this then I fucking deserve it.

Just a small lake in NC while i was paddle boarding this weekend. That cove was nice and calm so i could see little schools of fish and some turtles swimming around. Saw a blue heron while i was out too.

Any good spots on the east coast where i can paddle on clear water and see wildlife?

I'm not so much into public sex (or sex where you stand a reasonable chance of getting caught), I'd much rather fuck my girlfriend in a nice tent up in the mountains. Not saying I'd never do it outside in some secluded location but I think the fun of that is mostly just the naughtiness of it, sex is best when you have a good private place so you can really get into it without being judged. Also blowjobs are highly overrated.

Sex outdoors is basically the same as sec indoors, only there is a hawk killing a squirrel like 50 yards away and the girl is freaking out about it and crying so you have to hold her down for compliance.

Questions that don't deserve their own thread, stupid questions general

Didn't see one up.

Well guys, I did it. I bought a cabin in the woods and am going off grid. I have 14 acres of beautiful woodland.

First order of business is getting a chainsaw to clear woodland and prep firewood. Also in the market for a good ax.

I don't want to spend more than I have to, but I don't want to cheap out either. Any recommendations?

Any leaf /out/doorsman here know how taking game that doesn't appear in the hunting or fishing regs works? I found a spot (in ontario) with a ton of crawdads and some kind of clam or mussel the other day and I was wondering if I can just grab as many as I want? Also can I just shoot and harvest birds/small game that don't have season or limits?

I plan on camping on public land for the real /out/ experience, slowly learning how to feed and protect myself out in the wilderness. However, my state (CA) has an epidemic of cartel-owned weed farms that are difficult to spot even by helicopter, and growers are known to kill people for getting too close. For example a hiker in the Humboldt area was shot earlier this year for being near a farm. Plenty of people go missing in the mountains/parks, and it wasn't nature that got them. Sometimes if you're obviously a hiker/camper they'll tell you to fuck off but I'm not counting on being lucky.

How am I supposed to deal with people who will kill me for getting close to something I have no idea is there? I feel like I don't even have a chance to truly go camping, I'm stuck in popular, crowded campsites, where it's safe. Somebody on this board has to have dealt with this before.

Hi /out/, my 13 day old weed plant got mostly eaten by slugs, there are only 2 small leaves remaining. Will it survive, and what is the best course of action to help it? I live in south wales, UK. The plant is and indica/ruderalis hybrid.

I have put it under a clear plastic cover, almost totally sealed, but air circulation is still going. Hopefully no slugs will get in now and salt will be fine as rain won’t get through. Is the humidity this will introduce beneficial or harmful to the regrowth of the leaves?

Forgot to say where photo was from.
Monaghan’s Texas.

Goliad
Dinosaur Valley
Bastrop
Gaudalupe River
Stephen F Austin (pic attached)

I'm in the Rio Grande valley. Feels bad to be so far away from everything.

>>1562809
I meant distant from my home, but it helps to know that Palo Duro is relatively safe to navigate from trailhead to camping area.

>>1562810
Oof, Goliad. I've never been there. Been to Fredericksburg once, but didn't stay long. I do like those towns out there away from the big cities.
>>
>>1562815
If you live in the valley, you have some nice national bird watching centers I believe, I would take advantage to see some of those. There is also Goose Island state park near you, and while it is a car camp spot and highly crowded, remember that state parks allow fishing without a lisence, so that’s a fun day trip apportioning as well.

As far as camping go, I would definitely hit up Goliad. Beautiful heavy wooded trails, amazing bird life, and some fantastic mission church ruins to see right outside of the park if you are interested.

The next closest areas too you are a good three hours away, but worth it. Palmetto is gorgeous, and has some unique plant life plus it’s known to have a Bigfoot allegedly.

Guadalupe river ( pic attached) is another somewhat close to you park that’s worth seeing. Beautiful clear rivers and if you walk the shoreline, you can occasionally find fossils in the rock faces by the streams.

>>1562797
I’m moving to TX soon, will be in Ennis. The area seem shit for /out/ or at least day hiking which is what I mostly do. Lots of hunting though.

Where to go for day hiking?

Does /out/ read poetry?
It's the most /out/ art form for me.
Anyone want to share some?

Vegas:
there was a frozen tree that I wanted to paint
but the shells came down
and in Vegas looking across at a green sunshade
at 3:30 in the morning,
I died without nails, without a copy of the Atlantic Monthly,
the windows screamed like doves moaning the bombing of Milan
and I went out to live with the rats
but the lights were too bright
and I thought maybe I'd better go back and sit in a
