If I know that I'll be going to a beautiful place, I'll be taking a camera with me.
It's a nice side objective when traveling in general, but I enjoy taking pictures when high up in the mountains, either trekking or doing easy stuff like via ferrata climbing. And it's fairly easy to get into since every smartphone has a camera.

I've also gotten into infrared photography a couple of years ago, and modified cheap DSLRs and mirrorless cameras for it. Foliage mostly reflects IR light, so it's a great subject. With a modified camera and a variety of filters you can get interesting results like blue sky and pink/red leaves. Picrelated is a cheap chink 650nm filter on a full spectrum modified Canon 450d.

I sorta do this in the sense that I'll imagine for a while that I'm escaping from the feds, moonshiners, or hunting down a low down no good dirty thief, or trying to get to the river bend 'for the Injuns find me. Not the whole time, just on certain passages. Or I'll try to imagine just what everything was like before advanced technology. I guess we all do, right?

I am also big on trying to do plant identification (and animal, but that's easier). So many plants around us all the time, most normies have no clue between a beech or an elm, a hemlock and a spruce, let alone a white or black spruce. And trees are again easy mode.

I get blisters on my thighs from rubbing on the pants seam when walking a lot. The only thing that helps when it gets to that point is a piece of bandage/cotton tissue with some ointment or antiseptic powder secured by climbing tape. Anything else with a weaker adhesive gets unstuck very fast.
And yes, getting the tape off is very painful due to all the hair. It's like waxing.

What's the highest level of freedom I can realisticly acheive as a permanent lifestyle? It is hard to tell fiction apart from reality in that regard because people tend to ronanticize living absolutely free (see McCandless, his journey sounds really based in the beginning and it sounds like he would have lived many years longer if he wouldn't have decided to go to alaska, but what you read about him is probably just half of the truth and I guess it isn't that easy) and I can hardly find any honest information about living without responsibilities.
Closest I heard about is the hobo life, but I can't find any good resources about it. There's also the digital nomad meme but bringing high tech everywhere you go obviously limits your freedom by a lot.

>hourly pay
I’m not sure. And I was thinking about the trucks that go to the local stores, not necessarily regional. I would rather have hourly, most truck drivers work >40hrs a week, closer to 60 when shit goes wrong, so hourly is real nice.

The $12/hr I mentioned was like one of the few jobs I have seen posted to the general public from that DC, they wanted a fuel island attendent but it was 2nd shift or maybe 3rd shift and weekends and was like $30k-$35k/yr. If I was like 20 with no bills and had mu CDL, I would probably jump on it to get my foot in the door, but I can’t do it for $30k now and my wife would drive me crazy if I worked those hours.

Off and shoulder seasons are the way to go fren. Same zion poster from above: me and the wife vacation and stay in Estes Park and do hikes in RMNP in Oct-Jan and its great. Estes Park isn't crammed and the trails are sparse and open. As long as you're comfortable with the cold and have some good spikes to hike in its great and the winter landscape is awesome. Just have to be comfortable with the fact that the ice and snow is going to make for slower hikes on the trails, and plan daylight hours accordingly but who's rushing?

I'm becoming increasingly intrested in trapping. I've trapped crabs and caught a squirrel or chipmunk for fun here and there.
Found this video of a bird trap (link below) and watched some mouse trap mondays on YT too. Does anyone trap???? Intrested in both live and kill traps.

Sup /out/ists,

Need a good jacket recommendation for camping in places where it rains all the time and the temperature doesn't rise enough for shit to dry. Pic related is what I was wearing last few times and I got away with it until a really bad downpour which soaked me head to toe because I went above the "water resistance rating" apparently. So pls give me something that will keep me dry as long as I don't go for a swim.

Also any advice on further waterproofing would be appreciated, I wanted to get a lot of drybags but shit's heavy and expensive so just planning on rolling large chunks of my gear into double layered heavy duty garbage bags and hoping for the best if I get caught out in some monsoon tier rain.

Also general gear thread.

No, you setup your ridgeline or guylines before taking off the poncho, then set one grommit into the line, and work your way up without getting wet. It's hard to describe and finicky, but workstm.

Hey /out/ists, I need your help. I am going to finish the German equivalent of high school later this year and will attend university after. But I would really love to do something that is not sitting in a room all day before contiuing my education as I will probably never have the chance to easily do a gap year of some sort ever again in my life.
I considered just living the hobo backpacking life for some time and travel around the continent for as cheap as possible while sleeping outdoors most of the time but I heard that employers hate when you can't show what you have done for a year (they always assume that you lived the neet life playing vidya for a year because you are a lazy slob). I don't care too much about what future employers think about me but I also don't want to not get my dream job because of this.
So I considered volunteering, not sure about other countries but it is common practice to do some sort of community service for a year after graduating from high school, most people do it in a social domain whereas I am exlusively interested in doing nature conversation or anything that is done outdoors.
I don't really care about where I do it, forest is my favourite biome but I also wouldn't mind going to a nice country where there aren't that many trees.
One thing that immediately came to my mind is forest firefighting as it is physically demanding and a very respectable job but I don't think anyone would take me for just a year without any prior experience and to be honest I also don't really want my mom to worry about me all the time. Most of the volunteering positions in natural conservation are actually just being a guide for schoolchildren and tourists or doing paperwork, both of which aren't something I would like to do for a whole year.
I would also be okay with getting a nice job for a year, ideally something where I learn or practice some craft but it is hard getting a job for just a year.
Feel free to discuss any /out/working related questions
