Just a friendly reminder that threads about weapons which do not pertain to their use in outdoor activities should be posted on /k/ instead. Thanks.

has a lot of utility, and you can use one as a tarp, cloak, poncho, among other configurations; but it isn't going to do much to insulate you from a cold ground.

Petzls make me wetzls. I got one a few weeks ago and it's hands down my favorite headlamp I've ever had.

Would it be possible to take some construction equipment, like a pneumatic pick hammer, deep into the woods, to build a secret Cave?
The place has got to be as secluded as possible, far from any civilization. Would it be easier to make an underground cave, or to dig into a Hillside?
What would the Logistics of such an undertaking look like?
How to prevent it from flooding?
How easy is it to be caught? What are the fines?
What are some good ways to conceal the Entrance as best as possible?
How to prevent the cave from caving in?

“Why is there ice in the stem of my pipe?” edition

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Captain Black or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $25.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

Plum Pudding really is amazing isn't it? I didn't think it was going to live up to the hype but it is my favorite right now. Along those lines I'd suggest trying Quiet Nights, BlackHouse, Bengal Slices and White Knight. White Knight is probably my second favorite after Plum Pudding right now.
Since you like Peterson Elizabethan I'd recommend Escudo, PS Luxury Bullseye Flake and PS Luxury Navy Flake.

Bro, are you still here? If you read this, consider the Victorinox Angler (pic related). It has the corkscrew you wanted, and those Vic mini pliers make for some helluva super tweezers. They are very precise. Literally everything you asked for.

Or, if you want to have scissors instead of the fish scaler, there's the Evolution S557 with corkscrew, pliers and scissors. It's a former Wenger model now made by Vic, so many of the tools will be in Wenger style.

tried to post this on /fit/, because /fa/ in general wouldn't know anything about this, and then they told me to go to /out/

what are the most durable hiking shoes? you're not supposed to wear shoes for over a year or two depending on how you use them, but i wear sambas five years at a time and don't give a shit. my feet are fine. what is the adidas samba equivalent of a hiking/trail shoe (sambas are regularly voted as most durable sneaker, but they're flat and suck in the woods)
THANKS.

this is what you get when you browse the homo boards: bad advice
>>
>>2293260
Why do they have to be the “most durable”? Shouldn’t a shoe that’s comfortable, fits properly, and offers any protection you need take priority? I’ve never had issues with Salomon trail runners in the durability department, but now I use Topo Terraventure 3’s. Just don’t be a brand whore and wear whatever fits your foot properly and are comfortable for walking 5, 10, 30 miles as a time.

not who you asked, but it depends on whether camping alone is spooky to you.
how in the world would anons know your capacity for solo nighttime excursions?
>>
>>2293331
i think id do fine on the sleeping part, but when i ride alone im very reserved and definitely worry more, does this fade?
>>
>>2293340
I get what you mean. You *should* worry more. Long distance trips by yourself are not for getting rad and spraying rooster tails. They're for taking in the scenery and camping - you just so happen to have a bike underneath you.
Always take basic repair gear. Tire and tube kit (you can make a DIY electric tire inflator for almost nothing), carb and petcock repair kit isn't a bad idea, extra water. I carry an InReach but that's mostly because I already owned it for backcountry expeditions - it is a really nice safety net for places outside of cell service.
Any lone excursion of any sort should absolutely cause you to worry about caution and preparation. Fear, not so much. Over time, the worry and over-preparation will just turn into competence and attention!

To each their own, but there is no fun in double track riding. Motocamping hinders the ability to navigate more aggressive terrain. Get a proper dirtbike, burn oil and rip soil like God intended

The Casio W-800H, customized with a Nato-strap and the countdown timer mod, where I modified the watch's circuit board to enable the hidden CDT feature.

Wear it all the time. Cheap, multi-functional and small enough that it doesn't get in the way.

Where I live, you usually have to pick one or the other (crowds or solitude) because the cat is out of the bag for most of the sports worth visiting.
Same with camping between spring and fall. If you aren't dispersed camping away from the roads and trails, expect company at most designated campsites, even when it's piss-pouring rain

The Mid State Trail runs through some of PA's more remote backcountry. Certainly a more authentic representation of the state than the AT. The PA Grand Canyon, Bald Eagle, Tuscarora, and Buchanon State Forests among others are along the way with easy access to PA wild areas. Multiple state parks and private campgrounds with amenities (particularly within the S half of the state) are just off-trail as well, if that's what you're into.

The general formerly known as /lcg/ LARP Containment General edition.

-Prepping
-Natural Disasters
-SHTF
