Homeless in a thru hike in Norway
I am a broke student and I will become homeless in around 2 weeks for the rest of the summer.
I was thinking then on doing a thru hike across Norway starting from Oslo area. To keep myself occupied, challenged and mantian some dignity.

I have these 2 weeks to prepare the route and get the equipment.

I need all the info I can gather before I'm homeless. From what equipment to buy (tent, sleeping bag, shoes, how to dry food, maybe a fishing rod, etc), how to plan my route (maybe from Oslo to Bergen? Or from south to North?, resupplies, etc), hear other homeless people experiences and tips.

I need you /out/bros

/Out/ings With a Pipe Thread #39
Summertime 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 Prince Albert, Carter Hall 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 $20.

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:

Psychology of an /out/ LARPer
I lived the majority of my life in the Deep South. The most common /out/ activities in that part of the country are either hunting or fishing. Well into adulthood it was rare to have met someone who had never done either. Hiking, however, wasn’t nearly as popular.

I mean there are trails in Alabama, sure. Every knows the 330+ mile Pinhoti Trail. And if you hike in Louisiana you’re going to see some wildlife; it’s guaranteed. But backpacking as someone’s main focus for recreation during their free time is very rare in that part of the country.

A few years ago I moved to Portland for work (InB4 junkie liberal hobos; I know). In the PNW, you can’t throw a rock without hitting a hiking trail. I lived in a city of ~300k people, and the nearest REI was 7 hours away. Now if I want a pair of wool leggings I can say “let’s not go to that REI, let’s go to the good REI.” Really I could forgo them altogether and go to the Icebreaker outlet. The point is there are enough people hiking in this area to support numerous brick and mortar stores.

As such, “hiker” has become somewhat of an identity in this part of the country. It’s similar to “surfer” or “body builder.” Those labels are universally understood, and in this part of the country, the image of a hiker (if not the label) carries a similar meaning.

That’s why people LARP as hikers/outdoorsmen. It’s a West Coast influence where an identity has sprung up around a particular activity that isn’t as prevalent in the rest of the country. Maybe it’s people looking for an identity; who knows? But I’d only seen this attitude online until moving here. And they’re everywhere out here. You’d think with all of the people claiming to hike that the trails would be packed, but just a few miles from the trail head there isn’t anyone around. It’s very odd. I think it’s why so many people drive Subaru’s in Portland; they want to appear outdoorsy.

OKC or Seattle
Going to be moving soon if this whole end of the world thing starts to get better

I work from home so employment is not an issue, the two places I am looking to move to are either Washington state seattle or tacoma, or move to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

I have lived on the west coast in the desert with nothing but sun my whole life, I love overcast weather and rain and I visit the northwest at least once a year, it would be great to move somewhere with as little sunlight and as much clouds/rain/ thunderstorms as possible so WA seems amazing


I also LOVE tornadoes, ever since I saw my first one in the distance on a trip out to OKC a few years ago I have been enamored with them, now I don't plan on casing them down like a storm chaser however I would not mind it at all if I could every now and then drive out a few miles to see them in person again at a safe distance, it sounds like absolute heaven however from the looks of things OKC is pretty fucking dumpy and boring with nothing to speak of entertainment or food wise etc, it also seems to e a pretty sunny place

So if there is anyone here who lives in either area and could let me know the major or secret pros and cons to each area I would really appreciate it while I look into making my decision

Seattle is also mad expensive, more than OKC for sure but tacoma is pretty damn cheap and their crackhead problem is a lot less than it used to be

Sailing/Boating General: Spring Commissioning Edition
Hey /out/!

Noticed quite a few threads going around regarding sailing/boating and topics related, so thought I'd try my hand at a General Thread. If it goes well, we'll try to keep them going throughout the season.

I for one just upgraded from my Catalina 22 to this Cape Dory 25. The full keel and wider beam make for a more stable boat for my usual sailing which is Singlehanding on Lake Erie.

If anyone has any questions about sailing/boat ownership, boat equipment, maintenance, or anything else related to being on the water, I'll check the thread a couple times a day and answer as best I can.

And yes powerboats are welcome.

Nearly off the grid living.
Well my life just got flipped turned upside down so my current plan is to get a mobile home on my sisters property. She has nearly 20 acers out in the country but still close (30 min) to a couple big cities.

I can just pick a spot and go crazy. I know you can buy a giant shed from home depot but by the time you build it out might as well have just gotten a mobile home. Its out in the country so basically no regulations except I cant run a business without a license.

So I will be NEARLY off the grid. I can get electricity and water from her main house easily enough. There's no source of running water to make a turbine and too many trees for solar to be viable unless I wanna cut them all down.

So like I was saying, is it REALLY cheaper to buy some big shed/barn and build it out? I see decent looking new mobile homes start at 30k that's like the price of a nice car.

Small boat for big waves?
Screenshot_20200526-114253_Free Adblocker Browser
Looking at cheaper alternatives to bass boats, and I'd like someone with experience to soothe my concerns before I make a decision. Namely, this is about simple aluminum hulls, with a simple motor on the back. Something like picrel. I just have questions. I'm afraid that with a flat john boat I'll get ravaged like a german schoolgirl by wind, but they seem to be cheap and readily available used. Also, can I even launch a boat like this (pic) from the beach?

Also, are these boats good for choppy and windy water? I know a basic aluminum hull should last decades, what should I look for when buying one used? Do I need to max out the power rating? What's the least expensive, but still reliable and safe option, since I'll also need gear, registration, etc. And insurance isn't required in my state, should I bother on something so small and simple? And boater education isnt required but is recommended, should I just do one of the free online prep classes?

Hammock & hammock accessories
I need some help and/or advice concerning hammocks and related equipment. I've been looking around and checking reviews the last few days, but I'm at a loss what I need. I'm new to hiking in general, but I visited a relative when he stayed in Nepal and we walked for four days between guest houses, but it was fantastic just to enjoy the fresh air and not be holed up in a city. Some parts were pretty brutal for me, but I got through alright.

I'm going to go hike in my country during my vacation in a months time or so. The temperature during the nights is going to range around 8-12 degrees C (46-53 F) on avarage. I'm 183 cm (6') tall, and overweight at 105 kg (230 lbs). What setup should I look for? Should I buy a hammock, underquilt, inflatable mattress, sleeping bag, and a tarp? Or can/should I skip the underquilt or mattress? If I should only bring one then I assume the mattress would be the better choice for me since there are lean-to's and such along the many trails in my county. Would a sleeping bag still be essential if I decide to sleep in my merino wool clothes? I assume yes. What hammocks and related gear do you recommend? Inflatable mattress or a firm one? What tarp would be good? I've read good things about Warbonnet, and that they have good options for us fatsos. Price isn't that much of a factor if it means the gear is good and I can sleep well.

And yes, I'm new at hiking in general, but I grew up on the country side and miss being out in nature.

British Camping
Screen Shot 2020-05-27 at 11.40.19 am
Hey pals. Just wanted some advice from any experienced brits out there about camping in the UK. (Also UK camping general thread I guess)
I moved here from Australia in April of last year and only just got my camping gear in order but now that it is I'm really keen to start. Unfortunately haven't bought a car yet but willing to rent one to get out of London. I was wondering what the deal with wild camping is and where some good spots to break in my gear would be. Next weekend me and my mates are keen to head out just for a couple nights so any sites you'd recommend within a few hundred km's with some pleasant trails and bonus points for a body of water nearby.

Explain how this wouldn't work or wouldn't be vastly preferable to living as a rentslave in the UK
>go and live in canada for up to 6 months thanks to being a UK citizen and canada being part of the commonwealth
>buy 20+ acres of rural woodland close to a road which is within 200 miles of a large town/hospital and within 100 miles of a food shop
>buy motorbike or other cheap transport and live inside it or in a hammock with an underquilt/overquilt travel to the land from the airport
>build a simple, well insulated cabin elevated on posts
>start to plant enough crops to feed you year after year, start transporting canned food/essentials, water filters, any medication you need, sanitary supplies, vitamins etc to store in your dwelling
>only stay for under 6 months at first but once you have enough to last you a decade and have been reliably harvesting crops year after year and cycling the planting areas (mainly potatoes, large a variety as possible of vegetables able to grow reliably in the climate)
>then just overstay and live on the land until you run out of water filters or get a health problem which requires a doctor and can't be helped by over the counter medication
Isn't this preferrable to working a manual labour job with eastern europeans for 12 hour shifts just so you can afford to rent a shoebox flat or terraced house in an urbanised environment while your body and mind slowly degrades over time?
Why haven't more people done this in the UK?
Just look how popular videos and channels like this are here about living offgrid in the UK

The only thing that would stop you would be a health problem or bear attack which required something more than OTC medication

I've had my dog for 3 years and take her hiking/camping with me every time. Shes very obedient and friendly so I walk her off leash unless horses or other dogs are coming up on us. She likes to sniff at people as they pass, and I have never encountered anyone who didn't mind her going up to them. But the retards on this board bitching about unleashed dogs has made me paranoid. Have any other dog owners encountered this in real life or is it just a meme created by the fat angry larpers?

Desert clothing/gear thread?
Looking for best hot weather and intense sunlight clothing for being in the sun for 10+ hours a day, namely in Phoenix AZ. I need long sleeves and pants because I've been getting burnt pretty gnarly over the past few days. And I can't constantly apply sunscreen to my arms.

It's mostly for out on the lake and hiking, and on the lake I'm beat down on with no options for shade other than clothing.

/Out/ings With a Pipe Thread #38
Springtime 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 Prince Albert, Carter Hall 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 $20.

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: [Open]

How do I do I deal with ticks for both humans and dogs? for some reason this year they've been everywhere this year and tweezers and a pain to use. Been looking at these "tick cards" that seem to claim to work well, should I get one of those or a tick hook? also does anyone know if tick prevention sprays work or if their just a scam? I've seen a few ultra sonic collars which are meant prevent dogs from getting them, but it seems like snake oil. also what clothing is good at preventing ticks? I've just been wearing tight trousers and washing my jacket after everytime I go /out/. Thanks anons!

Bivi bag thread
Did I just fall for the Bivi bag meme?

Tried out my new alpkit hunka last weekend which is supposed to be mega breathable but I still woke up with damp patches on my down sleeping bag :(

I love everything else about it, it’s mega light, packs down tiny, fast to setup and you can set it up pretty much anywhere and it’s low profile for stealth camping, but if it’s going to give me a damp sleeping bag each time I use it then it renders itself unusable.

Did I do something wrong? Do I need to get a more expensive one? Or does anyone have any recommendations for something that is a good replacement and won’t leave me with a damp bag? I’m thinking I might try out a tarp and groundsheet next but that’s less ideal for what I want.

American Giants in Dallas
Hey guys, I'm trying my hand at growing some American Giant sunflowers and think I might be off to a bad start.... My soil is good and I've spaced them 11 inches apart, but I put three seeds per hole, I have small sprouts that just started coming up today, and in some spots I see three of them (I'm assuming the ones that I don't will just come in later)

One of my questions is even though I plan to thin them once the sprouts are three or four inches tall, will this tripple group planting come back to bite me in the butt? Also I know that birds and squirrels and such are known pest, but I live in a suburb of Dallas and dont know how worried I should be about them. I dont mind them eating the seeds because I dont plan on doing any harvesting, but will they eventually kill my plants if I dont do anything about it?

It's really just the planting arrangement I've done, thinning, and pest that I'm worried about. They're in good soil, and are getting a ton of sunlight, but how worried should I be about the other things mentioned above? Thanks in advance for any information and help!

So i wanted to start gardening, but im not sure what i can grow given the soil. i want to grow things that will take in the ground without me having to go buy special soil/mulch and build a gardening box
the ground is pretty much clay, floods so much during rain its almost like a rice paddy and cracks in the dry months. My neighbors up the ways have corn fields but i dont know how they grow so much and without a circle irrigation setup
