>A Melbourne man has been arrested over the disappearance of campers Russell Hill and Carol Clay in Victoria’s rugged high country 20 months ago.
>Investigators were told the couple were camping together at Wonnangatta River near the Wonnangatta camping ground.
>Campers found Hill’s fire-damaged car at their campsite, which was completely destroyed by fire, near Dry River Creek Track on 21 March.
>The pair have not been seen or heard from since.
Looks like they might actually find out what happened to these two. Also the guy they've arrested was caught re-painting his car.

I want to live an alternative lifestyle if possible and live in the wilderness and have a job that would make that possible, if you can what kind of job would you recommend?. I am currently in Europe (Hungary), I also have US citizenship. The only thing I like about the US is that it has huge wilderness in some pleaces. Does Europe have decent sized wilderness? If so would It be easier to live in the US wilderness instead, since I have citizenship? Even tho I live my country I want to escape this modern world. I do not want to wage slave my life away working a job that I hate so I can buy stuff that does not make me happier. I wan't to live a minimalist self sustaining lifestyle. I wan't to go deep in the wilderness as possible but occasionally return to civilization. Would you recommend the Alaska wilderness? It seems to be to most comfy location to me.

If you don't already have a career you could look at a seasonal job in Alaska. There is a lot of tourist type stuff and many workers are from out of state or even on visas. Having citizenship would help a lot. It probably won't make you a lot of money, but you could get your foot in the door and look at how it would be to live in Alaska.

Why did you mention knives twice?

24 hours later, why hasn't my transpiration bag produced any water?

There's water on the outside because it was raining, but none inside.

It's transparent, there was SOME sun, and I was basically testing out my gear. It's a HDPE clear bag, and huge.

Put it over a tree (Eucalyptus?) In a former commercial pine forest In a discreet location

Sealed it nice and tight, no holes, so the rain didn't even get in from the outside

Why is that a problem?
>>
>>2252185
Needs a lot more sunlight to heat it up.
Also where does the water collect? The way I knew it was collect a bunch of fresh green matter, dig hole, put in hole, cover with plastic, little container in centre, water pools on roof, collects near the centre and drops into container.
Eucalyptus doesn't seems like the best feed source either, you want plants with higher water content.

Not enough sun. Also was it on the forest floor? Definitely not enough sun then.

god fucking damnit why is it rotated? :( I swear I'm not that retarded bros...

I slept outside last night in my 30*F comfort rated bag.
It got down to 31*F and I was toasty with the exception of my feet.
I changed into a fresh pair of smart wool socks before getting in my bag, but my feet were still cold enough to keep me up for a few hours.
Does anyone wear any of those down booties to sleep in?
What’s your experience with how much warmer they keep your feet?
Is the bottom constructed so that you can get up to go pee with them on, or do you need to wear something over them?

I have the feathered friends booties, Not cheap, but on two trips to the Arctic they were worth every penny. I wore them in the tent and short trips outside, they tended to be too hot to wear in the the sleeping bag. There's not a lot of structure to them so they'll shift around as you walk unless you pull the draw string tight. Over all a great cold weather investment.

Boiling water in a nalgene at your feet with the lid tightly secured or use hand warmers.

For being cold in your bag I’d say the issue mainly was your bag rating, since most bags are survivable at their rating not warm. But mainly I’d do what >>2253411 says. Keep your next day clothes or just some sweaters/blankets is a huge help to keep bag warm even when you leave it to piss

Let me explain.

I would love to go traveling, walking, sleeping outside, but I was wondering, what is the best material / fabric to take for my clothes?

I don't want the bottom or the mid game, I want the best quality.

The criteria are as follows; breathable, thermal, resistant.

For the moment my choice is on clothes in goretex, but should I take full goretex, a mixed with other fiber?

I would like to buy, sock, boxer shorts, shorts / pants, t shirt, jacket and hat / balaclava.
Knowing that I would only use everyday, practically only shorts and a t-shirt in addition to underwear. All this for a budget of 1500/2000 € maximum.

Ideas ?

Bros I need tips for cold camping. I've only done warm shit before. It's going to b 19F at the coldest and around 50F in the day. My bag is graded 16F and I have an air pad. Also going to bring 2 pairs of wool socks, long johns, beanie, thermal shirt, and light jacket. Should I be comfortable with this? I just don't want to be the middle of night and realize I am underprepared.

You could buy a ton of hand warmers. One of the bigger ones in your chest pocket will probably be enough for most people. I have shit circulation and put some in my socks too. With the items you mentioned, and maybe one additional layer or two (definitely under you, don't underestimate how much warmth is leeched through the ground) you should be gucci.
>>
Bring more socks and change into fresh ones before bed. Don't go to bed in anything overly damp with sweat. Bring a mid layer for between thermal and jacket. Gloves too and a neckwarmer that can help cover your face and ears. For future I would consider a sleeping bag rated a little lower
>>
>>2251946
If you're car camping (which you probably should be your first time winter camping, so you can warm up if you have to), and if you're planning to do this more than once, a tent heater isn't a bad investment.

If you're just trying it out, get a few of those cheap 82% wool moving blankets from Harbor Freight, they're like nine bucks each. Or spend slightly more for "army-style" blankets online. You can use them on top of your sleeping pad for extra padding and insulation. You can also wrap yourself in them inside of your sleeping bag.

How feasible is it to backpack with only a belt and a vest to hold your gear in fall weather? I'm not concerned about weight but volume, since I don't want it to get caught on undergrowth and having everything strapped around me would make it easier to carry regardless of weight. Also the massive limit on volume is a sort of a weight limit. I'm thinking 2 aluminum gi canteens, or maybe one with a hydration pouch, a knife, a tarp pouch, and a camp blanket pouch would go on the belt. Food, fire kit, and water purification tablets could go in the vest. The problem I foresee with this is layers taking up a bunch of volume in the fall. Maybe I should strap everything heavy to the belt, put everything small and light in the vest, and put everything high in volume in a bed roll I sling around my shoulder. Have any anons done anything like this before?
>>
Well you larpers never go outside anyways so buy as much or as little gear as you want, it won't make a difference
>>
>>2253575
You dont need all that shit bro, you just need to pick a good campsite. Taking more gear improves your versatility, but you dont even really need a bedroll and blanket or multiple canteens.
>canteen+cup
>camp knife
>fire starting kit
>weather appropriate clothes
>sturdy cloak
>food
Put the food in your cloak, wrap it up, pin it to form a loop and carry it over your shoulder like a bag. Canteen, knife, and fire starting kit goes on belt. Then just pick a good camp location where you can get fresh water nearby and have a naturally sheltered spot.

So many people on here are idiots. Wolves are just meaner big dogs. They have teeth and if you wrestling it you could get kicked hard with its toe nails thats it. Manage to get your fist down its throut you can man handle it although I bet the ferocity of one is pretty nuts. No hands to block as you gouge its eyes out. No leg dexterity to stop you from kicking it im the balls.
A chimp on the other hand holy shit they bob and weave. Are super fast and strong they go for you genitals, ears, nose. They can block, wrestle, and bite even in a pinch. A much better set of teeth then a human for biting too. Bitings a last restort for us they use it much more often.
Humans are capable of being as strong as them by what I understand, but our minds limit our strength to prevent injuring ourselves or just limit it from self doubt. Thats why women and small men can suddenly lift up a car out of nowhere to save a family member. One instance I saw a 155lb man dead lifted at least 1000lbs. So we are Monkay deep inside if we could activate it you probably could fight both of these creatures off, but need to go to the ER afterwards. Likelyhood of activating monkay is obviously slim. Im guessing a 6-4 250 lb linebacker might have a better chance then 5-8 190 lb Amerifat me.

Bong here, we are making massive gains in rewilding. I know people who are heavily involved in rewilding.
We have beavers, lynx, wild cats, bison, red squirrels, pine martens and white tailed sea eagles. We also have massive swathes of countryside being given back over to rewinding and allowing more smaller species to flourish. Reintroduction of wolves would be retarded as farmers and land owners would most likely shoot them.
