We really should have started our intentional community a few years ago guys.
Prices have really spiked and costs will likely be twice what they were before.
Should we wait it out and hope prices come down or should we buy something now while we can still afford at least a mediocre plot of land?

Hey fellas, I'm relatively inexperienced with backcountry backpacking and was hoping to get some advice.

I've been on three different 7--day trips with others, two trips to the Sawtooth Mountains in northern MN in the summer, and one trip to the Black Hills in SD in the fall, doing about 35 miles for each trip at a very easy pace. Ive also had six or seven overnight trips with an ex who did the majority of the planning. I've done one overnight trip with a friend where I was in charge of the planning.

I've never gone on a solo backpacking trip and plan to do one tomorrow night, but I'm worried that I'm overpacking, even without food my bag is already hefty. I've got no clue what the weight of most of my gear is.

I feel like my setup is super autistic and there's a bunch of waste weight, like my food honestly doesn't need to be warm and I don't need the stove, I carry a bit much water but I have Celiac's disease and don't absorb water very efficiently, Celiac's also makes it a bitch to get carbs in

What should I remove/add for my gear? How many spare socks should I bring? Are trekking poles that useful?

I'm thinking of spending a week backpacking Isle Royale, MI in September and plan on backpacking for a month near Juneau, Alaska next fall.

I hike about 10 miles a week with a full pack for training.

For repairs I have a nylon patch (for my tent/rain gear), some safety pins, and a few feet of 1 inch wide duct tape wrapped around my lighter. You can watch a few videos online about repair kits but that's pretty much all you'll need. I always figured if I needed more than that I should just abort the hike.
>Should I get a CamelBak or something for water? The thought of my flimsy water bottles splitting scares the shit out of me
What I hear from a lot of hikers is to use "Smart water" bottles. Apparently their cap threads are perfect for the Sawyer filter straw.
The bottles are also pretty decent quality wise.
Ex-milfag here, I just use a 3 litre milk bottle and put it in top of my ruck. Sometimes two if I don't trust the water sources.

Virtually free and easy to replace.

>MSR makes great camping stoves super lightweight to
>Rook 65 is a good pack and osprey has lifetime warranty on that stuff and are really nice about it usually
>Nice Med kit I don't see many people bring out med kits that big and that definitely should be packed more heavily
>You don't need a gun or bear spray its fucking stupid and your very unlikely to run into a bear let alone someone who wants to kill you on the trail.
>Hammock tents are fucking autistic they weigh to much and are hard to set up (may not seem hard rn but once you have cold hands even taking down a dome tent can be very difficult) get yourself a dedicated hammock (nothing wrong with it my sister is a hammock camper herself) or a dedicated one man tent

Casio Chads, can someone identify watches on the far right upper row?
Thanks, have a great day, anon.
Literally the exact watch pictured is what I normally take /out/ (but I use a NATO strap)

I also have one of these (assuming that's the 38mm and not the 42mm) which is what I normally wear but I'm not taking a fucking $400 watch /out/ when I have a $50 beater from Walmart
Never heard of them before, but it honestly looks like these aren't very great quality.
I looked at their field watches, and they're $300 for quartz movements.
There is never a good reason to pay more than $100 for a watch with a quartz movement. They are stupid cheap. These are going to be functionally identical to a $30 Timex, just at 10x the price.

Oh, and I just looked at their automatic watches, since they do have some of those! Over $1000 for something with an ETA 2836 movement. Looks like those movements are about $200-$300, and ETA is a very well-known watch movement company, so at least it's not complete garbage. I'm not sure how justified the $1k price tag is though.

Honestly, just read this: https://timeandtidewatches.com/how-to-start-your-own-minimalist-watch-brand/
If you ever come across a watch brand that is new or not well-known, just assume this is basically what they're doing.

Fucking $300 for a quartz watch. Get the fuck out of here; I'm going to Walmart.

how to start on archery? just making a bow out of a tree and fuck it?
That will work but you should do some solid research on the topic and prepare to fail your first attempts.
Did it for a summer. It's boring as fuck.
Most of the enjoyment was from socializing with the other people at the range.

TBB Vol. 2 has a great chapter on natural fiber strings and how to make them from scratch. The book series is essential if you're serious about making trad archery gear.

Find somebody local if possible to help, most states have archery organizations/clubs. Watch youtube videos if that's not an option

Wait, is that what you guys mean when you say "sleeping under a tarp"? That's not a tarp, that's a failed tent.
Yes unless they are abandoned ober 50 years ago, eastoid
It's bullshit bro. Have you ever noticed how you always see deer in the fields adjacent to the highway? It's because they know that there are fewer people, only cars.
Same rules apply.
>>Have an itty bitty baby

Was it caught, from an itty bitty boat?
Everywhere is manmade, unless you live in Alaska or some other highly remote / protected area. We have killed almost all of the predators and logged every tree. The outdoors environment is not natural, so who the fuck cares if you can see a building or not.

/pipegen/-Tobacco Pipe General

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Captain Black or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $25.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

careful not to overindulge
I am not a regular tobacco user, and if I'm having a particularly extended session (even just a full bowl), I tend to get a bit jittery, and then my mouth tastes like ash until the next day
Try either drinking or swishing and spitting something acidic like lemonaid or even some vinegar water after a smoke, then brushing your teeth. That may help the ashtray mouth.
thanks for the tip, I'll try it!
I enjoy a good smoke, but the ash tray mouth is rough
and it's not like I'll just "get over it" like a cigarette addict will because I only really indulge once every couple of weeks
Yeah, I get it. The acidity (and some people insist it must be citric acid, but I've had luck otherwise) supposedly helps clear the smoke.

It's worked for me even when using a strong alcohol-based mouth wash didn't work for it.

Brushing your teeth helps by physically scrubbing away residues, tar, etc.

I will bet you anything that the feds burnt his house down, to make an example.
Don't you be trying to stop consuming and wageslaving, goy, or you might just find your cozy little cottage burnt down.
But don't worry, there will always be a nice warm productivity pod for you!

This is literally true.The rest is pure deceit and illusion.
I don't care enough to look into this story or research the laws but in general there's something called "adverse possession" which means that in cases like this, sometimes the squatter wins if he's been there long enough (it looks like it's 20 years for New Hampshire so he passes that). The other requirements include things like living there openly and acting like you own the land (as opposed to hiding in secret). Building a cabin would count for this.

but again i don't care enough to look into this case
It's already ogre. His animals are probably dead and his cabin mysteriously burned down.

Hello /out/. Please recommend me some gear: waterproof jacket and boots. I am a polish scout, I backpack both with my group and privately. We travel with our tents and sleep in forests, the trips usually take around three weeks and are away from civilization (of course, there are some tourists on the trail, but not many - usually we don't see other people for days) so there are no means of drying our equipment. Maybe boots in sleeping bags. I just started working so I can spend a lot on new equipment and 4chan usually gives me the best advice. Also, first time on this board. In return, I can do an ama about scouting, if anyone is interested.
You must be new. /out/s official boot outlet is lemonparty.org

How do I learn, effectively, how to step better when hiking?

My knees are not what they were 15 years ago when I was doing most of my hiking, and I encounter much greater difficulty getting downhill now. I actively worry about mud. I have a bad left knee that I could injure worse by slipping.

So basically I need to learn the art of how to properly step and walk the best way. I figure this must be enough of a topic of conversation for some tips or info to exist?

I should get poles right. I kinda like the idea of a staff more because you can more easily intercept face height spiderwebs with it
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
they directly tell you with every pole not to put your weight on the pole though? how can i trust some collapsible thing at that

dunno why you'd refer to me as if i'm a youngster when i commented about my knees 15 years ago. :P
They could have turned to crap now, and the current ones may be shit, but I trust my Black Diamond, and put weight on it. I'm scrawny though. I've had it for around 6 years. Since they sell them in pairs now I gave the other one to the gf, who is a spazz, and hers is still good too.
I didn't know that you weren't supposed to put weight on them, but I started with sticks, followed by an old ski pole, so I never read the instructions when I upgraded. And if you aren't supposed to put weight on them, why do they make meme ones with shock absorbers?
Telescoping poles are also good when you need to lash them to your pack and use both hands. Some UL dudes use them for tarp set ups too
I'll check it out, but $100 for a pole is the type of ridiculous cocksuckery i'm not gonna be involved in. I'm sure there is some identical chinese equivalent for $20
Saw a an old dude on the AT who chose a correctly size ski pole. Can troll goodwill and ebay for them. Make sure its taller than your normal walking needs so you can raise up for downhill. Wrap a big section for a handle.
>People with 2 poles often don't put weight on them, poking and dragging them uselessly, while looking like fem spiders.
So long as OP is not a retard, two poles generally should be an improvement over just one.

I camp with only a bed roll and thin sheet because the sleeping bag will be too hot and the bugs will not allow you to cowboy camp. If you get drunk enough it’s not that bad.
honestly just lots of drinking water and acclimating yourself in day-to-day helps if you can. Find ways to get outside more during the workweek, have a shitty warehouse job like mine where there's no AC, etc

I've been twice. I recommend the Gokyo Lakes trek. The views are epic and a lot of the accommodation is free if you eat at the restaurant. Meals are only around $5, so it's a pretty cheap place to visit.
