this is how we deal with rapists here in peru...
I doubt they would rape anyone unless they were sure they were going to die and not tell the tale. That is their bread and butter.
But then again in our countries Pakis are happy to rape girls in the back of their taxis.
The thing about rape the MRA and MGTOW set don't realize is that most of the time conviction is impossible because it's a he-said/she-said.
They might be clever about it. For instance they might know how to spot lefty women and how to manipulate them.
eg. Rape them then make up some crap like "Oh you offered me some of your coffee on the trail, that means you love me and want to bone in our culture. Please don't hate me I am just a pet brown retard."
this. if you see a bunch of people looking like those guys from OP and don't feel threatened to go with them into the wilderness, well... you had it coming

Anyone tried making something similar to MREs, or some backpacking food that require little cooking?
I was thinking of something like this
-instant noodles
And pack for 2-3 days worth.
Maybe get potato and wrap it in tinfoil for snack as well.

I mean MRE mains aren't any different from pic related, but with knorr sides it weighs far less and tastes better cooked

>The point of any MRE project is to have a large number of varieties to keep things interesting, as morale is a major factor for any numerous-day excursion
You aren't supposed to live off eating MREs, and they certainly weigh too much for very long multi-day excursions

I've been camping recently and considering backpacking for the first time.

Is it worth it to purchase a Jetboil, or am I better off with a cheap pot and one of those foldable $15 or so stoves? I mostly want to boil water for coffee and cook soup.

Thanks guys, love the Chinese.

Any recommendations for cheap backpacks and hatchets?
its just me
if you're deadset on carrying an axe, buy a cheap on and google how to rehandle an axe. Handle can be bought for 15$ at hardware or ranch store

Best beginner pack IMO, used it for a few years
oh and if you are carrying an axe to split wood get a saw to cut it Coghlans sierra saw from sportsmans is great for 10$
ONLY cut downed trees newfriend. Green wood doesnt burn well and it's probably illegal to cut live trees where you live on public land.

Please just Google what backpacking is before you come on /out/

I drove through there last week coming back from Montana/Wyoming. Thought I’d spend a day cruising the I15 and meandering into the bushes. Got hit with a windstorm that obliterated any visibility. How do people live in places like that, or where tornadoes hit, or hurricanes?
Bend is nice
Was driving through Bend when I was taking a cross country road trip. Me getting there happened to coincide with the entire town having a 1950s day type thing. People all dressed up like from the 50s, classic cars cruising down mainstreet, live street performances, and a farmers market to top it all off. That was one of the coolest experiences I had the entire trip.
Last time I was there there was a road bike race that went right through downtown, people lining the streets and all that. Definitely an enviable place to live.
My only regret was not visiting the Deschutes brewery, but maybe next time!

Fucking larpers, enjoy your tent catching on fire or a flash flood sweeping you and all your gay shit into the ocean
He's probably a foreigner. They don't have the option to off themselves like a gentlemen and have to rely on natural disasters.
For just ONE night?
Check forecast, if no rain:
- tarp shelter is ok.
If there's rain or you have diseased insects/rats/mice,
- tent just as a deterrent (with a footprint/tarp)
- Sleeping pad (foam or inflatable, u choose) to put distance between the cold ground and you
- hammock if you're ok dangling as u sleep
- Some food (and snacks) and cookware for it. Eggs for breakfast are always good.
- A lighter for fire lighting reliability and a small knife to carve a fire drill for fun or xp (or a larp) (Schrodinger's /out/er : if it works it's experience, if it doesn't it was just for fun)
- Booze if you drink,
- Wood cutting tool (saw, axe, depends what's available near you: dead standing trees or random trees/branches on the forest floor)
- LED light and spare batteries
- season temp appropriate sleeping bag
A big enough backpack to carry it all in.

Civilization is collapsed. Long live civilization ™.
Think macro to micro. Globalism is a resounding success in creating a new battlefield for a new era. No longer can the goal be starving rival powers, or outcompeting an alternative worldview. Now, success as a state is found in the leverage you can negotiate over your "allies." Total war has passed, cold war is ended. Consolidation will rule tomorrow.
Thus, to get ahead, cities must look to other cities for trade. Encourage a policy of import replacement, by cannibalizing rootless corporations and creating micro-manufacturing. Turn to your surroundings to diversify resources, and become producers for self first, consumers of others later.
Individuals should form dual clan structures, forming generational wealth on both sides of the rural-urban line. Even better if the two compliment the other, i.e. farming grain and apples to provide for bakers; logging and chemistry for woodworking. Become artisans instead of manufacturers, reforming the guild system to exert political power against corporate and political opponents alike.
>End of /pol/ starting /out/
Do not be self sufficient. The Father did not let Man struggle alone. The Son founded a community to ensure our earthly and heavenly needs. Be as far outside The World's system as you can. Cut your cost of living by producing food and clothing. Seek durable pastimes, over constantly consuming media. Build fixtures to last generations. Buy raw materials and tithe finished ones.
Look not to The State to validate your wealth, but to The Church and the least of its members.

In other words;
Become Catholic
Have children
Plant a garden
Make something real.

There wasn't one for my stupid question so decided to kill one thread for the sake of many.

Anyways, I'm sick of lugging my 3 person chinese tent that weighs probably 6kg or so; especially since I had to fix a bunch of holes in it over the winter. I hate that thing. But I'm poor, and my country's economy is in the shit so nothing is affordable due to currency exchange.

Now that you've read my blog: I want to just use my tarp + mat + sleeping bag. But I don't know what to do with my rifle when I'm sleeping in my stupid burrito. Do I just leave it to the side? In the off chance that someone sneaks into my camp without me waking they can just grab it from there while I'm fucking struggling with squirming out of there.

I'm sure some of you burgers at least have thought about this.

No problem bro. Just out of curiosity, what kind of rifle do you have?
I've got a typhoon XII, and a hatsan sniper vortex .25 air rifle. İf I'm planning on a longer hike I just take the typhoon because together I have to stop every hour or so due to the insane weight with the rest of my shit. My side carry is a Walther ppk copy (vzor 70) that I usually don't take with me because it has a lot of sentimental value (was my dad's side during his 30 year service and has seen a lot of combat, but a couple years back it slamfired on me and I've been slightly hesitant about it both due to further damage and safety reasons).

And in case you're wondering I'm really happy with both roach rifles, the typhoon only had one case of failure to feed and failure to eject. The failure to feed happened with the cheapest shell I could find and only in the 10 round mag which had a 2 round limiter thingy on it for months before that test (because legally were only allowed one chambered round + 2 in the mag in my country), so I thought that was reasonable. The failure to eject might've been a result of me fixing the failure to feed that occured moments before. Other than that, really good for the price.

The air rifle is simply flawless btw. I can shoot fairly accurately up to 5-10cm CEP to 100 meters distance. I got a small boar that was ruining my family and neighbors fields back in our village in one shot at around 50-70m hitting just at the back of the ear. Painless and all, just dropped dead and convulsed.

So my friends roommate is a forest ranger here in Northern Colorado and he claims there's a hidden hot springs in somewhere in the mountains in this area. He said something about it being a spot only very few people and rangers know about because they want to keep it hidden away from retards (I'm no retard I promise) Anyone got a scoop on where I might find this place?? I'm assuming it's somewhere outside the greater RMNP area...

What all would it take for me to become partially self sufficient on a couple acres of land? I was thinking of doing the following:
>keeping a small flock of dairy + meat goats
>keeping chickens
>growing a variation of fruit, vegetables and legumes
>hunting and fishing
Just as a couple of examples. Have any of /out/ had any success with self-sufficient living? I don’t want to be totally dependent on Moshe all my life.

what i don't get are the 'all or nothing' zealots out there. You don't need to go all swiss family robinson, unless you want to; or see it as an aspirational to work towards.

start small
get a few raised beds and learn to garden; develop your soil and expand each season
start with a few chickens (if you can?) and again, practice and expand as you go.
goats? sure.
cows? why not.

I think what gets people in trouble is seeing it as this monolithic endeavor where they MUST go from suburban comfy to 17th century peasant immediately. the goal should be to a) have a lifestyle you're actually at peace with and b) reduce your reliance on a system/society that is increasingly hostile to you and yours.

that said it's not that hard; and thanks to youtube and similar it's never been easier in all of human history to learn new things.;
We must have more knife threads in place of larp threads.
I live in Europe bro, my country wasn’t touched by BLM. I have a genuine interest in it and I figure the best way to learn is by taking small steps. I’m building some raised beds and learning how to grow food on a small scale, then I’ll build a chicken coop and keep some chickens and then get a little pair of goats. Just acquainting myself with these things and learning bit by bit, I am a young man and I’m not running into the woods with a pack on my back. I have my whole professional career ahead of me first. My dream would be to become skilled enough to become self sufficient when I’ve made enough money to do so.

I’m learning what I can step by step. My father is a great carpenter and he has taught me a fair bit about wood working and building.

Ok that ain’t me. I have a longevitive interest in this. I’m willing to put in some work. You can believe that or not, idc.

Thanks for your post, I will definitely do some research. Everything you’ve said makes great sense.

Based. How many years of saving did it take you? What age are you? I’m only 21.

t. LARPs about homesteading
>keeping a small flock of dairy + meat goats

these will make it very hard to become self sufficient, unless you're prepared to dedicate the majority of your acreage to animal feed.

Do you at least get some good gibs out of the state? A lot of burgers work like that here also but even making that much disqualifies you from any state assistance.
>are you allowed to not have a house if you cannot even pay for one and live in your car?
Sort of, but you will get hassled by cops for parking overnight in most places, or robbed by niggers, and if you do it in the woods you can get nailed for squatting on government land.
> rents are like 600 for a small apartment
Thats pretty cheap compared to usa prices. Its at least double that in most cities, triple or quadruple in a really huge city.
Eh you can buy a house in the usa for $600 a month mortgage but millennials expect everything for free because they claim boomers were given mcmansions at birth
Yea you can do that if you have good credit in a rural area, after down-payment and closing costs around $8000. My mortgage payment is $700 for a 1950's 3 bedroom brick house on 3/4 acre in eastern oregon. The problem is most small towns don't have good entry level jobs. You can't just move to rural Iowa and buy a house working at some brick and mortar store like you could 40 years ago.
