Where would you set up camp?
25 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
>two miles
>several hours
How could you expect to put on serious mileage if you waste so much effort walking two miles?
It should take <1 hr.
Also, the op said we were setting up camp. I'm just going for water, so I don't have to carry my full kit
And I already said I wasn't next to the lake
in one of those buildings
Trick question. You don't set up camp, you go where people already are so as to have less of an environmental impact. Setting up camp out there would be like shitting in a hole directly outside a public bathroom.

Missing hiker posts are pretty common if you join a lot of local outdoors groups. After a week or so they usually find the body at the bottom of a cliff, buried in an avalanche, or floating in a river. But on three of these occasions they reported finding the person without any further explanation and everyone that knew the person acts really awkward. Most people would then assume these were suicides. In fact I believe a lot of supposed "accidents" are suicides framed by the victim in a plausible way so they doesn't disappoint their family. They jump off a cliff and everyone will assume it was an accidental fall. I just thought this was interesting because I literally never hear it talked about and it constantly seems to happen.

What percentage of missing people missing indawoods does /out/ think are suicides?

Based. I got divorced from a toxic slampig and thought I'd lose my son. Fast forward almost 7 years later and he lives with me and she's out of his life. I dread to think what his life would have been like if I had given up. If anons ex has driven him to plan out his suicide you can only imagine the caliber of human he's working with. Court and divorce is hard and it's scary, but no amount of money will keep his son happy and safe without him.

A question for any soldier/outdoor anon here:

What's the best thing I could buy/get from Amazon to prevent feet blisters?

Had to drop out of the austrian equivalent of a hell week because of a infected blister.

Any tips are welcome!

Nothing really since your feet are pampered. You just have to pop them, clean them regularly, and let the callus form. You it sucks at first, but just be a man and push through, and eventually it'll be a non issue.
I use extra length under armour compression boxers for my fat thighs.
>Moleskin is great. It's prevention, not cure. As soon as you feel that hot spot, take boots off and apply.

Here’s the thing. You can’t larp when the subject is hiking. Too many people actually do it, and very often what may be considered common knowledge is just plain wrong. You’re obviously just parroting shit you read or something you think rather than things you’ve experienced. I know this because I actually hike.

Moleskin is absolutely horrendous blister prevention. The adhesive is garbage. It just straight doesn’t last. Moleskin is thick and not very slick, so it will get caught on your socks and rubbed off.

And it is used as a blister treatment. This is basic shit.

>Here’s the thing. You can’t larp when the subject is hiking.
Fuck you, faggot. I rucked for a living. I lived this shit and I hike to this day. If you have other advice share it but thinking anything beyond your own experience can't work stinks of amateur.

What's the best rifle for hunting small game like rabbit or pheasant for their pelts? I'm thinking a 22 is the way to go but my Uncle won't stop telling me about his glory days with a 20 gauge shotgun. Wouldn't the pellets fuck up the fur and feathers?

I never heard of using egg yolk thanks man, that would be so much cheaper and easier to get. I had to talk a local butcher into ordering me some every couple of months or so, and had to pay him out the ass for the inconvenience, because apparently I was the only one using it. There's a lot of fur trapping around here, but for selling it to fur buyers all they have to do is skin>scrape>salt>sell.
Btw I started off using the animal I killed brain which worked much better, but I'm pretty worried about rabies so I switched to cow brain. Thanks again man.
I was actually trying to source brain originally and even around here I haven't found any. Hearts, livers, yeah. Brain, no. Interesting that it was so expensive; I guess because he'd have to scoop the brain out of skulls?

That was my worry too, animal diseases and stuff like brain parasites. Despite it being rare, I remember hearing (a news story of) one old guy finally dying from eating cooked squirrel brain, something that was a traditional meal in his family. No one else ever had it happen in his family. The thing that freaked me out the most is that while rabies can be cured if caught early, even if they have to do a lot of work to make sure you don't die, the brain parasite was unable to be cured. Nothing to do. Even if it's rare, even if I'm not eating it, I'm not taking the chance; I don't need any more risks of dying. Also I like headshots on squirrels, so the brain is already damaged. I know it's rare, I know it's unlikely I'll ever shoot, work on, or even see a squirrel that is affected by it in my life, but fuck the chance.

Also, that is the original method of tanning as far as I know. This is, of course paraphrased, but someone once told me that the Native Americans used to and still do brain tan animal hides, "Every animal has enough brain to tan its own hide" (though oddly, apparently Buffalo are the exception, at least in North America).
I don't think he orders whole cows, I think he buys parts then butchers. So it wasn't financially worth it to him to order a cow head for one person just to sell the brain.
I guess "out the ass" is relative, he charged me $15 a pound.

Yea that's why I started using the same animals brain, the way my grandpa said it was "Every animal has enough brain to tan it's own hide, except buffalo and some people I know."
A .410 from close range will fuck up a pelt just as bad as a 12 from slightly farther, you're still talking scatter shot.

I’d do it if I had the equipment. I bet it’s pretty fun if you live in an area that has a history going back to the 1700s, or where revolutionary or civil war activities took place. I bet on the west coast it’s probably a little mundane though

Very much like fishing!
In the same sense that you zone out and enter some kind of a zen state, and you snap out of it in excitement when there is a audible signal or a fish on your hook. Can recommend!

Not like you can see anything from up there anyways, K2 wasn't even discovered until the british started surveying the karakoram range, it's that remote
But why are people scared?
I'll give you a large wad of something. BWAHAHAHA!
I think it would be alot cooler/more enjoyable to climb something like Annapurna or the Ogre, K2 almost seems like a meme at this point with how many documentaries and shit gets made about it.

Logistics is what makes climbing an 8000 metre high mountain the hardest(excluding everest/lhotse) especially in places like Pakistan where you are literally hauling gear for two weeks to get to the foot of the mountain.
Legal highs are the worst

great shot. where abouts is it?

I've been in my home area just working and studying. Waiting for inter-european travel to open up again so I can head to the pyreneese or the alps.
In the mean time I'll be reading in my tree hammock.
It's in Skåne, southern Sweden.
Nice. Do the bugs get bad down there when the wind drops?
Not a single winged one, actually. I'm surprised by the lack of mosquitoes so far this year.

With bears finally out of hibernation, lets share some bear encounters to remind each other why our ancestors feared the woods.

>Mountain Biking with a friend in NW Wyoming
>Riding along mountain ridge and begin dropping into canyon
>Drop into the treeline and make a blind turn following the mountain
>Pass by a pine tree and hear a loud whack through the brush and loud cracking come from the tree
>Come to a stop about 20 feet away and see a large shape making its way up the tree
>Black Bear cub has made its way to the top of this 25 foot pine tree in the time it took me to stop my bike.
>friend comes around the same turn and stops with me
>While I'm looking at the cub, friend spots momma bear hauling down the mountain on opposite side of the canyon
> even being more than 100 yards away can hear her grunting and punching the ground on her way down
>Nope the fuck out and have a great story for the bar that night.

If we had come down the canyon just a few minutes later I have no doubt we would have had a face off with that bear.

>2 weeks ago in northern PA
>walking on the side of a hill scanning the valley bellow for wildlife
>Spot a mother black bear and two cubs

>The cubs were wrestling and chasing each other up trees
>Mamma was absolutely massive
>Watched them for about five minutes
>I had a rusty piece of metal that I found earlier as a weapon incase they attacked
>Seriously considered fighting the mamma and taking one of the cubs

This was one of the few times I saw a bear before it saw me. It was cool to observe their natural behavior. Bears are chill.
Larp harder
> bowhunting in creek bottom
> only way from truck to stand is a trail through thick ass pines and blackberries and brush (pic related)
> no game at dusk so I head back because it gets dark in the bottom first
> stalk back up the trail. Wet grass, loud crickets, good breeze. Moving very quiet. Getting dark.
> turn corner and a big black hole in the trail ahead stops me
> hole turns and looks at me
> "oh shit it's a black bear!"
> "oh shit it's a white man!"
> bear runs up trail around a blind corner and stops
> I have a bear tag so I draw bow and pie off corner
> can't see shit through sight aperture. Can't get a good shot. Too dark.
> bear jumps off trail behind bush, stands up 10 yards away
> I've had enough. Draw down bow, draw based Colt .45
> yell at bear, "Fuck off or else!"
> bear fucks off

OP just get a decent tobacco pipe and buy a couple ounces of good pipe tobacco online and youll be set for years
>being a pretentious fag about flavor
just about any flavored gas station cigar invariably is better tasting than any real cigar
real cigars are gross
Swishers or whatever .99 cent cigarillos are sitting by the checkout
Maybe just try a few? Its not like it's a big monetary loss if you don't like one.

There are like 3-4 mini cigar brands that are sold everywhere and enjoyed and talked about by many...
