I've been watching Survival Russia for some time now and only recently found out about his far-right group leadership in Denmark. I read some things about illegal arms dealing and that he's only in Russia, because he would get arrested in Denmark too. In his videos he never really promotes any radical views and in a livestream he did he was asked about his past and basically ignored those questions. He also talks about having a "clean past" and not being into politics at all.

Does anyone know more about this past of him and if he still stands behind those views? It seems like he's just completely denying his past.
Not that I want people to start bringing it up in his comments, but it's surprising to me that it almost never does get brought up.

So any more info on this?

always go a little big bigger than you think you need, cuz any spare space you can always fill with cans of beer, more weed, more guns or more steaks

I do the same with Converse, but I generally only wear boots.
I do a double knotted bunny ear one, never had em come off or feel loose so I never bothered to tie em another way

I really want to become a drifter, but I feel like I'm too much of a coward. Traveling from place to place, even if food and shelter is scarce a hard to come buy, sounds like an adventure and sounds like a kind of life I'd love to have.

I just feel like such a coward cause I haven't done it already. I feel like maybe I'm too comfortable with my current life (even though I hate it I'm still "comfortable" in a sense that I could continue hating this life forever and not snap) to leave it so easily.

So do any of y'all got advice for if I ever actually go out hobo-style and can I get some encouragement to do so?

>in constant pain from old injuries,

That's probably not from injuries, it's from stress. Your brain is causing that and trying to tell you you are living your life all wrong. Had similar issues for 20 years, debilitating pain and even got shingles and the pain would even move around from year to year on "old injuries" my shoulder to knees to my back. It went away completely when I stopped working

However going to Russia seems rather extreme couldn't you do it in your own country?

Sup sheeple, can we have a wool thread with some /sci/ crossover?

I recently bought a set of wool base layers (underwear and shirts) for /out/ and /in/. In the process, I learned some things. Highly opinionated greentext list:
>For any article of clothing, there's only 1-2 quality manufacturers
>100% merino > 200 gsm weight is the only option for base layers
>You need at least two and not more than three sets for a complete wardrobe
>Buy used wool whenever possible and treat it like buying fine dress clothes (I find made-in-USA button-ups at thrift stores for $5 and get them tailored for $15, instead of buying china shit off the rack for $50)

The manufacturers I found for each item were:
>Duckworth = long base layers, long johns and long-sleeve shirts. The product is called "Maverick Peak" that's 100% merino, 220 gsm
>Dilling = short base layers, underwear and T-shirts. They sell 100% merino, 215 gsm ones but Americans can't order directly. You need someone in Scandi, West EU, or UK to forward the package across the pond.
>Darn Tough = socks. They seem to be the best, but everything is a blend and I'm not sure 100% merino is good for socks anyway. I already have wool socks for /out/

My insistence on 100% wool: anything blended with it negates the purpose of wool. Synthetics trap odors and bamboo is repackaged cotton. Also, a single shirt costs like $100 so you better get your money's worth. Eco-nylon is literal garbage, great for nylon stockings but not $50 boxers.

Based. Pic related was $5 from the thrift store, 100% italian-made merino. Currently altering the turtleneck into a crew neck while leaving the turtleneck intact. I had brought it to the tailor, realized the impending disaster of an unattended chinese armed with scissors and a slip that said "cut neck," and pulled it out ASAP to do it myself.

The final solution to escape detection in remote areas is to build underground. No matter how well hidden or concealed your structure is, you're less likely to be found underground, even if your ceiling is just an inch or two below the topsoil to avoid caveins.
"leave no trace"fags shut the fuck up and kill yourselves, the plan is for no one to know you're occupying an area because you only come out to collect firewood and food, fuck everything else

People who put wood-stoves on sailboats often use this design. It stops the fire from causing a draft and also contains airflow so you can kill the flame by turning off an intake valve.
Put a water tank above it and you can have an infinite supply of warm water.

This is the way. Of course the best treatment is preventing blisters in the first place. Using high cut boots, using an inner sock to prevent chafing, even using a moisterising lotion on the feet before sleeping are all something I would recommend. Bpnus info, Always have multiple pair of socks, so you can change them, when they get wet/too moist. You do not want trench foot.

From southern Ontario here, looking to go innawoods up north off the muscle. Will try to build my own establishment from the ground up. I've been doing research on crown-owned land and disputes regarding it, and according to some sources it's possible to get far enough away from rural cities and populated areas that you're basically undetectable. How far do you think this would be?

A lot of people have shacks built in the bush in remote Ontario, it's not that uncommon.
I also grew up in Greenstone. You go a little north of Nakina and the roads just completely end. Only thing left is to fly into isolated reserves.
A closer look at the logging trails.

Also, we used bever damns as bridges with a fucking minivan + trailer so it's fairly easy to bring material out to a very secluded spot. Depending on how crazy you wanna imagine your larp you can destroy those as a way to assume isolation.
It's just what people call the RCMP
Well if you enjoy building multiple cabins then I guess it doesn't matter if somebody might make you tear one down.
I live in the GTA. I could drive 2.5 hours north of here, park my car and after a 20 minute hike be in a wilderness of 40 square kms of sweet fuck-all but rocks, trees, lakes and swamps with an abundance of game animals to hunt.

Ontario is fucking huge and outside the cities, pretty fucking remote - especially the further north you drive.

hi all, anglo here (specifically SW)

straight to it: where the fuck do i hike? i've literally explored everything within a 10-20 mile radius of myself. dartmoor and the coastal path is dominated by t o u r i s t s and people walking their dogs. you can't avoid roads because everything non-road is fucking private field which you have to navigate between hedges and gates which becomes a nuisance, not to mention muh laws which stop me carrying any sort of knife longer than 3 inches and you can forget any sort of firearm (even an air gun).

i wish i could join you jocks and sheep-shaggers in wales and scotland, you have it great

so, what do /out/?

Lad, you have no job and all the time in the world for out but your scared, get help or die out what do you want me to say? You people worried about replacement a too afraid to leave the house? You deserve it.
As an Englishman who moved to Sweden, I must tell you you're fucked. Any freedom in hiking you may find will be dwarfed by what you can get in other countries. Try saving up for a good hike in Scandinavia. You won't regret it. I recommend Kungsleden in Sweden as a start.
I'm not afraid to go out you mong, I'm getting sick of the risk.
you have to resort to stealth camping.
one thing I will say is though that i've set up and tent in public parks like 200 times and nobody has ever asked me to leave.
I think if you aren't causing a problem or camping somewhere next to a gated community or one full of spastic boomers scared at anything you're fine.

if you have earplugs camping in the middle of roundabouts is funnily really comfy

Why do so many hikers get lost and die in the woods?

Yeah? Your point?
Because they have a vagina.
While not a majority, recent studies show that around 21% of all hikers get lost and die in the woods, which still is a substantial number.
You don't update your maps for magnetic variation retard. True north is still true north and a simple calculation will give you a correct magnetic bearing. Maybe just as well you stick to day hikes and smartphone apps.
they don't.

I know at 2 people genuinely who 'went in the woods and died' who just became bums, moved to california to get away from their student debts.
one I know personally did it 20 years ago and still hasn't been caught, has a well paid job and everything just from burning all of his ID, claiming he was apart of some cult that didn't have birth certificates and gaining a new identity in california.

this only works if you aren't on any police systems with dna / fingerprinting though.

Here's another image and a guide I found
Has anyone used the DD range of ultralight tents? Close to buying one but first hand experience reviews would be good.
I picked up their multicam pyramid tent, I've only used it as a day-tent for taking away fishing and honestly it's done a perfectly good job with zero fuss to set up. The material is thicker than their ultralights I've been told but I don't think you could really go wrong for the price.
I would not, however, recommend it if you're planning on lying down in it and are over 2m tall.
looks good! gonna try it!

Bros can i go camping using only a smersh system. Because it is pretty large and if i get the pkm model it has 4 large molle pouches. So will it work for ultralight hiking for a few day trips?
