I recently got one of those, what should i expect to find?

Any /out/ anons are into treasure hunting?

The model i got is Eurotek pro and im in europe.
Dig up some uxo and insert in pooper
Trash, bottle caps, nails, soda cans, buttons and buckles, if you're lucky you're find useless coin or old toy
I'm in Netherlands and find tons of old stuff. Mostly nails and bottle caps, sometimes coins over100-300 years old if I'm really lucky. Have fun and patience!
You can expect to dig a fuck ton of holes to find a ton of junk metal, mainly iron & aluminum.
90-95% what you find will be garbage, if you're lucky you will find some coins, even more lucky & you'll find an old coin, & if you really really lucky you'll find something museum worthy.

I's think being in europe you stand a better chance of finding old stuff.
It will take you some time to learn your detector & how it reads different metals & how it reads them when they are oxidized. I've found copper artifacts before that came up as iron because of the oxidation & their size.

ive used those little heaters in tents lots with no problems. i wouldnt sleep with it running though.
but its better to sleep in a tarp lean to in the winter and sleep right in front of the fire. theres no bugs or rain so you dont need a tight enclosure, and everything stays dryer too. tents hold moisture from your breath, your sweat and from the heater. you can also dry your clothes and liners while you sleep.
It’s not under 100 but a Kelly cosmic 20 will last you forever. Amazing 3 season bag, not heavy or bulky. Worth every penny. Another good budget option is the bishops pass
Get a Lanshen tent

Decathlon has a nice cheap tent for $39.99, enough for some basic camping and it's free-standing. Dunno if it fits into your bag, though, depends on the cut.

So in the 1900 topo map - north fork of deer creek (upstream of Cass, WV) - seems to be drawn as a road.

By 1922 it is marked "timber rr"

then - by 1940 it seems to be a walking trail.

It is still marked on the current topo maps as a hiking trail - but on the forest service website it is marked as a trail - but doesn't seem to be maintained because when you click on the trail - it would be listed as like class 2 trail or class 3 trail if it were still blazed and "officially" maintained.

Do you ever explore abandoned timber railroads?

this is 1941, by the late 60s when the more modern scale topo maps started being produced it doesn't appear as a marked peak its just a point along little ridge I think

they just removed it entirely I believe

>I fucking hate sunblock
Right there with you, NZ anon. I'll do anything to avoid having that oily material all over my skin and attracting dirt while /out/. The sun protection on those things is great, and they're easily shaped a lot of ways.
These will also get one made fun of, but my (cheap) ushanka is definitely a non-negotiable bring in the winter.
That is a handsome hat indeed.
I like mine a lot, I wear it most seasons and it's never been uncomfortable or sweaty / too hot.
It looks like it. You're going to be wearing it for a long time, it's OK to shell out a bit more. It's a good option if you go /out/ once a year though.

What are your thoughts on hammock camping?

Personally, I find it way more comfortable than a tent. It's also much quicker to set up/disassemble.

You just have to tie some cord between the trees where your hammock is, right above the hammock, and place a tarp on it. If it's windy during the night, just tie your tarp to the cord with smaller cords so it doesn't fly away, but you can let it hang loose over the two sides of your hammock and you're protected from rain and wind this way.

it offers a safe environment to be pushed to your limits, learn and practice skills without any sort of crutch. it's a good stepping stone to learn and practice a lot of major survival skills without having the option to cheat. having experienced leaders around to demonstrate some skills, share their experiences, and pass down their own personal knowledge is something you won't get from any guide.

but I'm sure some of you rambo badasses don't need that. You've taught yourself to wrestle bears and eat things that'd make a billy goat puke.
Take that $5k and go camping for a few months.
Then during that time you learn how to build fire, tie knots, make a walking stick, make a spear and try to catch a fish. etc.
Buy a few books to bring with, watch some videos..
Unless that money doesn't mean anything to you, go ahead.
dont do it anon

Alcohol dries your skin so yeah, also tea is acidic by nature which can further irritate your dried delicate skin.
I'm not sure if you're being serious but trying to keep a baitcasting rod steady without that trigger to grip onto would be really hard
There a lot of differences, baitcasters are very handy but generally much more for specific scenarios(baits), while spinning is better general-purpose.

Hello /out/ I am homeless guy living in abandoned house with methheads but don't do drugs like them and trying to improve my comfort on the streets despite these bastards stealing everything all the time although desu I store all my stuff away from them and basically never get robbed compared to most people, only had three books stolen so far, and some lighters.

What is best portable stove designs / rocket stoves / etc. ?

I'm tired of buying those 90 hours candles at $4 each they are great but I have to pick up 40 beer cans to just buy one not including the taxes on them.




Some stuff I am looking at right now. Once long ago a traveling hobo showed me his own little stove he made that he runs off of pine sap that was great.

Please post about anything else too. I have a lot activated carbon I bought in bulk years ago from aquarium store, I use it mostly by putting it in socks, and putting them up to help absorb all the meth/tobacco/weed smoke and make this abandoned house smell less bad. I am pretty smart about a lot of things and yet sometimes really stupid and naive too so something I might never have thought about could sometimes really improve my life.

Abandoned house retard. You are still homeless if you are living in an abandoned house. That abandoned house has it's owner so it's not OP's house.

>lives inside a HOUSE
Just because he is inside a house that doesn't mean he has a house. He can be kicked out any time if the owner wants to. He is homeless because he has no house of his own.
It's a clothing store. Duluth trading co. They specialize in outdoor and work clothes. Their stuff is usually really high quality 15$ for their wool socks is probably a good deal. I know it was a popular brand in Alaska. I didn't know you didn't have it in syrup land. Sorry.

I can confirm every word of your post is gold

my sister goes camping every year with her partner with volkswagen transporter and my father sleeps in his delivery truck a week of every month when on a job.

I have more tips from my father:
>install hidden switch somewhere inside cabin so the car won't start if it's not flipped
>when you park the car in shady area put some outdated car radio on your windshield to discourage thieves
>when you leave your car in rich neighbourhoods put a piece of paper with telephone number printed. There's a chance angry Karen would call you first instead of police/traffic wardens to get your car towed
Why don't you just paint the van as security or do like the DEA and paint it with a flower company or plumber.
