ITT: We talk about our most recent /out/ experiences whether it be hiking, fishing, forest exploring, etc.

I'll go first. About three days ago me and a friend went to our local creek and kept following the creek upwards. We eventually came across a gigantic lake that forms into the rivers that lead to the creek. There was a dam that was basically preventing the whole lake from spilling into the series of rivers. We crossed over the small river flowing from the dam and found a series of horse/dirt bike paths. We followed the paths until we found a much larger lake that had chairs, a gazebo, and a not-fully-constructed zip line (pic rel). Anyways we save the location's coordinates on google maps and plan to return again.

Fast forward to today, we go again and bring another friend to show the two lakes we found. When we get up to the second and much larger lake again we come across abandoned canoes. So we hop in and paddle our way to the opposite side of the lake while seeing beavers swim far away from us. We go to the other side of the lake, walk around, and then get back in the canoe and paddle back. Rain started to downpour on us, but it was still an amazing experience.

So what did you guys do recently?

P.S. sorry for crappy android phone quality.

I'm almost positive this is the San Francisco Peaks in AZ, either Agassiz or Humphrey, based on the background and the vegetation. However I don't know/remember this spot. Is it on the bowl side of Mount Humphrey, facing towards the west?

Either way, wonderful place, and I sorely miss it since I recently moved away.

Environmentalism

What can you actually do to restore nature and stop the progress of its destruction?
I mean things that actually do things, not reduce carbon emission by 0.001% by buying an organic coffee instead of a normal one.

I'm talking from everything from harmless legal actions to environmental terrorism.
What makes the most sense and does the most?

this was about the normie masses, not you or me, and the point was what little natural instinct they had left was already redirected into consumerism - the virtual practice of appearing outdoorsy for others online, not a genuine return to nature, a degrading substitute like porn to real love

>>2470973
i admire your hopefulness and don't intend to sound too blackpilling but what even the recent lockdowns have showed me is that people would rather live in misery thinking they're heroes than admit the bamboozle
i simply don't see any way consumerism could lead to anything else except more consumerism, it's a vicious cycle where the senseless the world appears because of your shallow habits, the deeper you'll delve into them for some pleasure

>>2470983
quite insightful but i'm not against buying stuff, i'm against that artificial dopamine rush created by thinking you got the "right" tools instead of actually doing the thing and enjoying learning
it may be cultural but i can't quite relate to the online part, i do appreciate people who inspire me to learn new things but i wouldn't just go buy what they recommend, i'd still go for the second cheapest option and see how it goes (i did that with a ~200$ laptop about 10 years ago that lasted me all throughout highschool and college, a ~50$ chinesium smartphone that served me well over 5 years, a ~5$ supermarket portable radio i drag around, so on, not mentioning all the second hands)
my grandparents are old country folks and they rarely bought anything from the city, we'd have these weekly markets on the outskirts of the village (and much larger carnivals inside on certain religious holidays) and all equipment they had they got from there, all no names, probably chinesiums or local made and they work great
not saying they're retarded and don't know or appreciate what a fiskars or husqvarna is, but in shoveling pigshit it rarely makes a differences and even if i brought them one they'd probably put it in storage
>>
>>2471108
I think you have a mentality around this which is the other side of the same coin the usual consumerists are on, in that you are still talking about this in terms of buying and selling, it's not a matter of buying the right things.

I need advice,names of books,even jewtube channels, on the topic of consuming soils,clays,leaves flowers roots bulbs and seed.
A famine is about to strike,plus a civil war(im not in uSSa)
I will need to survive on geophagy,minerals,and all parts of a plant,even roots and even fruit peels,wild grass...things people will ignore.
>>
So far I know that most clays are medicinal, river stones curve hunger without serious disease. foraged leaves and roots are a great recourse.
I guess most domesticated grass,including the root/seed is appropiate for heavier daily use.

I live north and the winters are killer as it is, they're calling for an extra cold winter this year. I really don't think I'm going to make it.

I have a messed up car that's barely running for shelter. I have a job but it doesn't pay enough. I can't afford rent and bills because I need to fix my car to keep this job, I have a severe dental situation that requires immediate surgery., That's expensive. I'm fucked one way or the other.

My Plan is to hang heavy wool blankets in the back seat and make like a tent, I have about 20 lbs worth. I can connect my electric blanket to an array of power tool batteries. It's enough power to run it sporadically through the night, I'll run it underneath my other blankets. I have a really small electric heater and small power station I can run that sporadically for maybe an hour tops.

I'm really hoping these blankets hold the heat. It's not going to be enough for sustained -25°c -40°c.

Even if it does, my problem will be moisture buildup. Maybe the electric heater can deal with that. I buy moisture grabber packs that do help, but it's not enough. Wet and cold won't be great.

Charging all that power will be difficult. I can get away with charging stuff at work, I charge with my car by driving and I have a solar panel in the back window to charge the power station. But it's not enough, I can't charge cold batteries they will die. I can't think of a way to keep them warm.

I have a jetboil I could boil water a couple times a day, boil water at work. Keep all the batteries in an insulated bag with hot water bottles.

I'm worried about the gas tanks for the jetboil in those temps.

Bind wire around a stone that is as large as a volleyball. Use the steel wire generously so that the rock is secured by it even if it splits. Heat up the rock in a campfire and hold on to it with a line of wire connected to it. Suspend the glowing hot rock inside your shelter by the wire. Make sure to not touch or drop the rock or you're in a sticky situation. When i did herd cattle an older colleague told me about this simple trick

>Is there any sort of wonder gear I'm missing? Other then a sleeping bag
A sleeping bag comfort rated for your temps would be amazing, a sleeping bag with a survival rating for your temps plus the blankets would be far better than nothing. Cheap bags tend to be heavy but since you have a car that's less of an issue.
In addition to sleeping bags some kind of baselayer would wick sweat if you briefly get too hot and add a bit to your temp rating. Got any military surplus stores around? Ecwcs level 1 top and bottom would be great if you can get some. Level 2 (midlayer), level 3 (insulation layer), and 5 (insulated jacket) would be useful if you find them. Levels 1 and 2 would be the most useful though. Some layered clothing like that would give you warmth without having to be stationary and wrapped in blankets.
As far as condensation goes, if you can get a midweight buff or balaclava you can cover your face with that and leave it out of the sleeping bag/blanket. That way moisture will build up on the buff and on your windows but not inside the thing you're sleeping in.

>>2468307
space blankets are $3 at wally world and you're gonna need them for insulating rather than that wool, use the 20lbs to bury yourself in and buy a 20ft roll of reflectix while you're at it
also, steal the shit out of hand warmers, anything under $500 for a first time offense is usually a slap on the wrist
>>
>>2471161
level 7 and 2 combo is the best, you can wear it like a sleeping bag and it keeps me warm down to 0F, it'd probably be even better if you're wearing an extra layer of regular clothes as well

How would you dress for hiking in -5°C, I'd prefer not to have to wear a down jacket.
I have a base layer, have a thin midlayer, and a thick fleece to go oever it, have a windprroof jacket

What items types, and what specific items in these categories do you advice for prepping?
When I say prepping I mean for the following cases:

-power going out for prolonged amounts of time -> so most likely supermarkets and such dont function so no food supply, also hospitals dont function, nor businesses, also no fuel for cars-> most people dont prep so they chimp out

-civil unrest that may cause similar things but less intense and not because theres no electricity but because people are destroying shit so some infrastructure is damaged or some people didn't go to work bc they're endangered, also they may try to loot your house, can happen bc they're just looters or bc they ran out of food

-floods or earthquakes, same as above

So what I need is food that is nutrient and lasts a long time(canned food but which, wasa crackers, pre workout powder), a way to purify water (Sawyer mini filter, maybe a bigger one to keep at home) and access to water, meds for infections, diarrhea, bandaids, antibiotics, assault rifle for overt actions, pistol for concealed carry, smg/sbr for covert actions carried in backpack or car, as accessories an lpvo or prism sight + micro red dot and light on the assault rifle, holo + magnifier and light on sbr, light on pistol

Plate carrier with lvl4 plates and all the stuff attached to it but I want to focus on prepping not around gear, also unlikely to be used but good to own

Concelabale lvl3 soft armor

You seem more focused on shiny gear, though I did find it funny the idea of putting pre-workouts in a survival kit. Water, food, clothes, shoes, shelter and flashlights. I'd say get some gas masks before guns. Most disasters won't have roaming gangs of welfare thugs and if you do see it getting that bad then leave the fucking country. During covid when we all thought it could be the big one. Me and my girlfriend, already had supplies so we made plan to leave if things started to get bad, didn't though, just spend a year on furlough playing video games, drinking and fucking... I miss those times... it was cozy...

/qtddtot/ - Questions that don’t deserve their own thread

Didn't see one, so I'll make one.
I have an inflatable pad and a foam pad. Would it make any difference warmth-wise if I put the inflatable pad inside the sleeping bag and then sleep like that on the foam pad? Compared to having both of them outside of the sleeping bag.

>Anyone know the meaning of pic related?
I can take a guess. Back in the day, wood or coal were used to heat water for baths. If Indiana was experiencing winter fuel shortages back in the colonial or frontier days, that may have caused them to pass a "no winter baths" law.

Of course, even today, water is mostly heated with fuel since that's what generates most electricity.
>>
>>2471141
I know, I know. I was being facetious.
I have both HPG and MR, and some TAD gear (no packs tho). It's all great, honestly. If you have the money to spend, you won't go wrong with either. Pros and cons would be easier to talk about if you show the models and intended use. I can say is that I'd probably guess that MR is more durable and more padded, but feels heavier too. MR interfaces fantastically with body armor (at least the models I have or have had: 3DAP, RATS and NICE6500). HPG seems very modular. I haven't looked at what they offer for years though, so my information is 5-10 years old.

>>2471141
Mystery Ranch pros are "all of the above" (in particular, they're comfortable and well balanced to wear, and very rugged), cons are they're expensive and not lightweight.

My partner is a bit of a doomsday prepper, and doesn't really want any other kind of a life. He hates living in small city apartments, working for someone else, and driving to work. I work from home so I could work from anywhere, but I enjoy living in small city apartments and being able to do whatever errands I have on a bike or on foot.

His family has a small property in the backcountry, 16 kilometres away from the nearest populated place, which is a 1000 person village. The house desperately needs someone to inhabit it, and we could live there for free, and moving there would solve literally all of our problems. The only obstacle holding us back is the fact that I don't want to go. The thought of a life consisting of nothing but work, housework and staring at trees sounds daunting and depressing to me. I also know it's the only way *he* wants to live.

We have already tried living the way I like to live, and he can't learn to enjoy it. We both hate the idea of living in a suburb - it has the worst sides of both ways of life and none of the positives of either - and neither of us want to live apart from each other, either. So the only options there are is that either I must learn how to yield and adjust, or we have no choice but to live separately.

How does one learn to enjoy a homesteading life?

Yep, I have one friend who is a little chubby and very unhealthy and I took him on a hike in the mountains that had one too many steep inclines then he would've liked, still he enjoyed himself which was good.
