I lived in my car for months at a time when traveling the country. Never had trouble finding work, but how the fuck do you manage to find a good place to sleep?

It's certainly something.

On a related note, I've taken to using a candle to deal with moisture. Don't know if it works yet, but I'll get back to you in the morning. Here's to hoping I don't immolate myself. It's below freezing, so I should get results.

Why must my phone flip these
So yeah, got up to piss and eat something. Whether a big canvased trunk, trunk with a blanket and a seat removed, or truck bed with padding and a cover over it, any such setup should work with this. Normally, I'd sit up and be cold, but with this when I sat up you'd of thought I was a steam engine. Absolutely works. Maybe a hurricane lantern would be better to sleep with right next to you, or maybe mining lantern candle-thing, but a candle with like a foot and a half of clearance worked for me. Three inch candle burned a third down over four hours, probably by half if I woke up normally. Two thin blankets block the light. I didn't vent the candle, just breathed in the fumes, didn't die. It was between 26-28 degrees throughout the night.

Hey, /out/
I've come to hate society and the people in general so much, I want to move around from society permanently. I'd like to meet as few people in the rest of my life as possible. What are the best places for this? I'm currently living in Germany, but I'm willing to move to any other country. Do I have to buy a part of the forest, or can I build a log cabin without that? Also, what skills do I have to aquire in order to survive successfully in a forest. What books should I read before moving? I prefer colder places, so somewhere North would be the best. Thanks!

This is FBI's document about him
Of course none of these mean that the current system is wonderful but his solution to the problems was childish and he was mentally ill from birth. I don't know how he ended up as Unabomber tho. I would expect him to end up like an average Faggot.
Don't idolize random people after reading a book or hearing other people say he is le based and redpilled. That's all

What does /out/ think about Monkey Peak? It's a manga about being outdoors and climbing mountains and shit. A tad unrealistic, though, as a bunch of office workers are able to climb 3000 feet mountains on no food and water while being shot and wearing summer clothes.

Lol look at the revolver at bottom left wtf.
Does it have waitus? If not then I don't care

talk about backpacks

Only right answer:
Try them both in a shop to see which fits your frame the best. Be sure to try them with the clothes you expect to wear, well adjusted, and if possible loaded.
A good outdoor shop should be able to provide you advice on how best to adjust them.
Shoulda mentioned under $150 and asked when sales were going on, fuck
whats even the usecase for sub-40l backpacks assuming you are not shortie

u can just take your regular pack on a daytrip u dont need special smaller backpack for that
I already have one giant sack with only two things in it; I don't need to wear another one on my back
Making a ULA Catalyst lots of material choices.

How do i plan a multiple night trip off trail?
I live in Queensland, Australia and I want to fuck off from other people on a multiple night camping trip, without having to book campsites.

Are zoning maps available somewhere? Do people who do it stick to national parks? Is there any shit too see outside of national parks or is it all developed properties and deserts?

Can you talk about your experiences?
The banks of any stream, river etc. count as Crown land - which means that so long as you're within 5 metres or so of the water you can camp there for free and without penalty.
Have used this to my advantage in Western Australia.
I wouldn't be tramping around in people's properties at night. There could be people shooting pigs or roos, even unknown to the land owner.


Is there any good camping spots in the path of the totality in Texas?
I am about one long days drive from Austin
Will it already be too hot by april 8th?
Are any of the anons that met up in Casper for the last one still around?

QTDDTOT - Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread.
I was looking for one and turns out it's been archived. I've seen a lot of useless threads being made recently, which are mostly questions which can be answered in a short reply.
e.g. >How do I keep my lips from chapping in the freezing cold?
>Use a fatty chapstick from BigBrandXYZ np
>thread dies for two weeks because it's a slow board.
Please don't kill good threads by being a fag, everyone's been new here once.

Anyway, ask away.

If you take/need anything more than a flip phone you're an insufferable doushbag
do you prefer moist forests or desert?
I'll be staying in a chalet in the alps of Austria in a month. There is some hiking to get up there and I would expect some level of snow. Can anyone recommend some inexpensive crampons?

Like as far as stateside goes seems like the majority of people here on posts I've read have cited states like Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, as where they live or spent most of their time in. I guess I expected a broader range of states, maybe Michigan, North Carolina, Tennessee, certainly West Virginia, Montana, and Idaho.

New England is awesome but what is it about New England that draws so many /out/ists over other great outdoors states?

Neither. Ozarks. (West Virginia is viable, I'll give the east that one.)
Just put up posted signs you contemptuous piece of shit, I'd understand the seething if someone littered or fucked something up on your property, that's the time to put up posted signs, but the mental illness I see people exhibit online regarding property is so bizarre, people think they have right to just murder whoever accidentally stumbles on their unmarked property, while thinking they never have to contest their land because they paid for it even though they don't know someone has been living on it for 15 years because they never use it, while also thinking it's their right to dump toxic sludge into the river beside their property, or create a sewage dump that leaks into other properties like that kill dozer guy. I'm convinced most Americans have devolved into retarded sociopaths, with no understanding or respect for the culture of owning property and how it evolved legally alongside all the ethical and political dilemmas that come with that.
Yes dangerous BOLT action as in Nazi SS lightning bolts, every time I hear mention of some deer hunter it's like annuddah shoah, all guns should be banned to stop scary terrorists from acting violent for no good reason, it's my right to employ lawfare while using the state run economy to grind them into dirt, oy vey!
Given the current rulings by the supreme court, the fantasy you constantly polish your knob about won't be on the horizon anytime soon, keep seething about people owning firearms.
Vermont and NH by themselves have more people than Idaho, despite them combined being less than 1/4th the size of Idaho. Don't even get started with MA lmao, bugville.

Can any of y'all actually explain what the point of camping is? None of that "if you don't already get it, you're not capable of comprehending it" bullshit, if you're not capable of explaining what the point is, you're admitting there is none.

It's cold and wet in there. I already know it's cold and wet in there. I don't need to go out to the cold and wet to discover the magical wonders of being cold and wet. There's nothing out there that I haven't already seen. Why go out there in the first place?

This sounds expensive as hell
It's fun. Why do you enjoy jacking off? Because it releases dopamine in your brain. Same thing happens when you go camping. It's why anyone enjoys anything
heres the main concept:

Ok so I like the outdoors right. So what to do but go outdoors. but for how long? Well I could go for the day, but I like the woods so much that i wanna stay there for longer so i sleep there.

On top of that you get a sence of freedom and adventure knowing that your not going home the same day. That extra 10 hours or so over just hiking is really nice and turns a simple hike into an adventure. The fatc that you'll actually sleep there and be there in the dark is also very advenurous.
I started going to get away from computer screens and learn to ride dirtbikes. I still do that but I mainly go now to see how little I can pack and still be relatively comfortable.
It's satisfying replacing gear with knowledge and skills over time. I'm nowhere near backpacking levels of ultralight but my friend needs an entire truck beds worth of shit for a weekend and now I can get by with an overloaded 55L pack.

>Fuckoff were full
>decarboxylation process
why is it so hard to say "you have to boil them"?
NTA.. Boiling, baking, smoking and to a small degree drying are all decarboxylation processes. So, to anyone familiar with decarboxylation, to say "you have to boil them" is like saying "if people without legs need wheel chairs, everyone that is disabled needs wheel chairs"

I can tell you went through the new Bush "no child left behind" common core shcool system. They teach everyone as if they're autistic. Only one answer. Can't have them thinking on their own.
>why be specific when you can be intentionally vague?
The water needs to be at a specific pH and it takes a certain length of time too

I hated that show for its fakery, but in this case why does it matter? The show is obviously about teaching people things (even if those things are bullshit) and not actual survival.

Camping in the Loire Valley in November is peak comfy. Sheltering from the rain with a stealth fire, staying up late reading Shakespeare and drinking a bottle of white rum I found in some hobo's stash.
Two rocks, smaller rock gets the line tie, big rock sits on the line. Pretty secure
The chem light even
I love that you're aggressively retarded--stay a moron, moron.
