i would like to share a tutorial for a soap bag that I made that works quite well for /out/ adventures. it basically consists of 2 layers of nonwoven hydrophobic cloth, which can be cut out of a surgical mask or garden insulation. it allows the soap to dry without wetting, leading to no soggy soap in the morning, and serves a similar purpose to on-market items such as the matador soap bag. let me know if there's any additions you think would be good, and it's a nice way to use solid soap which is much more packable.

>I need to bring soap /out/
That's pretty cool. Thank you for sharing! I love DIY stuff.

I like to have multiple use for my gear, so generally I just do a hobo bath with castile soap and a rag. Castile soap can be used to clean dishes, do laundry, bathe, and is grey water friendly so you can discard without harming plants.
>people need internet tutorials to make a simple bag
thanks, the biggest thing (for me personally) is that liquid soap goes quicker than solid, so i try to pack solid ones, but i've never tried castile, i'll give it a shot. the bag is mostly interesting because a ziploc or any other plastic bag keeps the moisture in and kills the soap faster, the use of mask fabric dries the soap without letting the liquid out. glad you liked it!

That van is going to stink regardless. Being stuck in a hot van for a year with an unwashed woman sounds really gross. She’s going to immediately realize she didn’t plan for her periods and now you’re living 2 feet away from a rotten blood bank
Van life = being homeless
The “van lifers” you see on Instagram and YouTube, the hot girls oiling their asses while wistfully telling the camera how liberating their lifestyle is, do not actually live in vans. They live in apartments and drive the vans out to scenic locations for photo and video shoots so that they can take in donations from wage slaves who vicariously live a faked dream of dropping out of the rat race through them.
If you live in a van, it WILL be broken into by people looking for drugs.
If you’re really going to try to live that life, then you need to first buy an acre or two of land to park your van on full time, and treat it like a tiny house until you can afford to build one of those cabin kits and dig a well.
He's not wrong, loser.

I enjoy going out into the Mojave to LARP as a new Vegas cowboy
How do I find game recipes that arent 5 paragraphs if marsha stewart bullshit without browsing boomer survival forums? For example any squirrel recipe could be shortented to like a single fucking sentence.

"Crock pot on high w vegetables for 6 hours"
"brine then fry on medium with egg and flower" Somehow gets turned into a 300 page novel on the battle of new orleans and growing up in rural idaho. I want to backwoods white trash cook a racoon without even fucking seeing the word "braise" and its far more difficult to find than I would like. Im hunting for subsistence and don't have 6 spare hours to spare on this homemakers magazine bullshit.

You’d be better off trying to buy small time cookbooks or recipe books from a garage sale or the like I think. Most recipes on the internet all have articles and stories attached but if you buy memaws cookbook from her funeral garage sale it’ll probably just include ingredients and instructions without the story.

I just want to say fuck charcoal and everyone who uses it. Never in my life have I had more miserable experiences with such an awful piece of shit supposedly meant to be easy to work with, hot, and long lasting. What a crock of absolute bullshit.

Every time you light this fucking pile of garbage, it flares for a quarter of a second and makes "coals" which are so "hot" it takes 30 minutes to fry bacon on it. That is of course if you manage to light it, because with or without lighter fluid charcoal is simply god damn impossible to light. You'd have better chances melting rocks with embers from a stick. Then you realize only 3 briquettes have formed coals; the other 35 have gone out completely. Want to try to light those other briquettes? Maybe dump some lighter fluid on them, show it who's boss? Sorry but it won't fucking work. Charcoal is immune to everything you try to do to light it. Sneeze and every briquette is fucking ruined. Look at the coals wrong and the "fire" fizzles out.

Now you want real heat to cook your meals and eat your breakfasts? Make a god damn campfire. Two logs, raft on top, tinder beneath, and just light the nigger. Easiest shit you'll ever do. Stays hot, easy to add fuel to, and makes plenty of light. Smells great. Smoke BTFOs fucking insects all day and night long. Then you can climb into your tent and make sweet, sweet love to your girl by the light of a warm fire. There's nothing like it.

So do yourself a favor and give up on fucking charcoal. God, what a fucking piece of shit scam. Fuck you.

BRIQUETTES are slow burning, low heat, and hard to light. Straight CHARCOAL looks like burnt pieces of wood, is easier to light, and burns very hot.

a glass jar, just try to be smart enough to to break it
I didn't know they sold steel bottles, never checked for some reason. the ones I got all had good reviews and stuff on amazon and weren't cheap but tasted very metallic, tbf I only tried them the once but I don't like tasting metal
I don't think they should taste metallic at all. I would be very suspicious if they did. Then again, everything is so filled with chink crap that looks good and usually works fine if you don't use it too much, which leads to good amazon reviews often. But again, I can easily vouch for nalgene steel bottles, they are great. Love mine, you can even boil water in it, just unscrew the lid first.
Yeah exactly why I stopped using them, I'll get a couple steel nalgenes, to replace my gay plastic ones thanks for the tip, I wanted something I could also boil in
Happy to help, anon. I've been using mine for three years, all banged up since I break things often because of my retard hands. Then I took it once to gym and some absolute shitter stole it. Even though it looked like crap. So I bought second one and it serves me fine so far. I think there should be even some aftermarket steel caps/lids for it, not sure now.

What's the general consensus on throwing banana peels and orange peels on the ground while hiking?
I've seen some people get extremely assmad at it but I don't understand as it decomposes into dirt within a few months. Plastic is much worse as it literally stays there forever until you remove it by hand.
21 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Eh, it's still rotting trash on the ground for that time. It also attracts animals- bears in particular may be drawn to fruity smells. I'd pack it out or bury it away from the trail.
Depends on where it is, it's fine if it's in a place where it will decompose quickly (swamp, marsh, etc.) but I consider it trash if you dump it out in the desert.
just toss em off the trail so they don't attract gnats and flys or get smelly or stepped on or something ya know
Honestly couldn't the desert really use the organic matter? I've thought of reforesting deserts by genociding fags jews and niggers and just dumping them in the desert with spores and seeds. sure it would be smelly for a year or three but they should compost down and make a nice hummis layer for a new forest right? maybe drop say 1/3rd of the nigger volume with charcoal to suck up the accumulated toxins

I just can't wrap my head around it, I mean the material is watertight, as long as the structure doesn't fail I don't see how water could enter your tent? is this cheaptent thing a meme?

yup, stitching ripped in my first cheap dome tent and it left a huge gaping hole in the roof. Didn't take long before I was sleeping in a pool of water.
low quality bait
read the thread title
Seam sealing is a big things. Cheap tents often leak at seams, like at corners where there are multiple seams.
Cheap tents are often single wall tents, so collect a lot of condensation.
Cheap tents often use no-as-high quality material that is simply less water resistant.
New cheap tents tend to be fine as long as you don't abuse them, they just wear out fast. The waterproofing fades, seams come undone and leak, zippers break, grommets pull out etc.
I've never had a pole break just from wind, even cheap ones just don't sit on them and they're probably fine, assuming you got a decent cheap tent that doesn't put a ton of stress in one area somehow the poles should last longer than the rest of it.
If you don't care much about weight, a cheap tent and two tarps, one for a ground sheet and one for a roof or rain fly, is actually generally better than an expensive tent, it's having to carry the extra tarps around that you avoid by getting a good one. And honestly even then in significantly bad weather the extra tarps are really nice to have.

The main benefits of high quality stuff is just how much nicer it is to use. No annoyances like fighting with shitty zippers when every second you leave the screen open is another mosquito to spend the night with.
I had a coffin shaped wallmart tent that leaked because it's roof wasn't well supported and developed puddle spots
waterproof fabric is really about beading drops if water pools it will get through unless it's like rubberized waterproof

Anyone here have or ever slept in one of these truck bed tents? Seems like a neat idea, wouldn't need to worry about finding a flat area on the ground. Only thing is my truck is a short bed and I'm 6'3" so not even sure if I could even fit properly in one. The idea intrigues me though.

I know this board is at least 70% larpers at this point, but for those that aren't, you should be wary of stories like this. I frequently take trips to the badlands where the temperature can hit 40 degrees Celsius, and disorientation out there is no joke. That's exactly what happened to this dude. Went for an hour long run on a blazing hot day, didn't drink enough water, took a wrong turn, and suddenly he has no sense of direction and ends up crawling under a tree to die. You should have a life straw or something similar if you do big hikes in hot weather, and carry lots of water. I've had days where I carry 4 litres, drink it all in 6 hours, never piss once because you sweat it all out, and when I get back to camp my urine indicates that I'm dehydrated.
