>Carl McCunn (1946 – December 18, 1981) was an American wildlife photographer who became stranded in the Alaskan wilderness and eventually committed suicide when he ran out of supplies.

>Unfortunately [the airplane] was on wheels and couldn't land, so I stopped waving after its first pass.
>I then got busy packing things up and getting ready to break camp. As sunset approached, I began to doubt if the pilot took me serious. I certainly hope he didn't think that my having stopped waving meant I thought he might have been someone else at first, or something.
>— Carl McCunn, diary excerpt

>An Alaska State Trooper flew over the lake in late August and observed McCunn's campsite.
>The pilot did not sense McCunn was in distress, since he waved his orange sleeping bag very casually and, on his third pass of the campsite, he saw McCunn casually walking back to his tent. >The State Trooper later testified he saw no reason to surmise McCunn needed any assistance.

>McCunn later wrote in his diary: "I recall raising my right hand, shoulder high and shaking my fist on the plane's second pass. It was a little cheer – like when your team scored a touchdown or something. Turns out that's the signal for 'ALL O.K. — DO NOT WAIT!'
>It's certainly my fault I'm here now! ... Man, I can't believe it. ... I really feel like a klutz! Now I know why nobody's shown up from that incident."

RIP Pentti Linkola 1932 - 2020

Your prose alone, poorly translated and overlooked, left a lasting mark in my mind. You were living proof that endemic to nature is melancholy. You sought to suture over the irremediable, the chasm between us and the earth, but found we were condemned. Until we're not. Rest in peace, Pentti.

I fell for the wool blanket meme
I've always toted my sleeping bag with me everywhere I go until I discovered YouTube. All the big bushcraft channels on YouTube told me wool blankets are better than sleeping bags. I paid over a 200 for 2 high qualiyt 100% wool blankets.

Last night I used them for camping and wrapped myself around in them as they recommend. I still froze my butt off.
They're also extremely heavy. 12 pounds total. I even took that wool blanket off of my ruck due to the weight of it. I am never going out with them again

How in the fuck do I go about locating campsites along a route? I'm using google maps currently and it's fucking such a hassle.
I'm going from East to West Coast with some buddies and I'm in charge of finding the places to set up camp along the way and figure out where we're sleeping but the truth is I don't have a fucking clue what I'm doing and neither does any other retard who's coming along on this trip. We just need bare bones camping grounds along the way in any national forest or whatever.

recommend me a fishing rod/reel
As a kid/teenager I used to fish literally every day. Lived in a rural neighborhood surrounded by several stocked ponds, literally less than a half-mile away each. That was a long time ago, over 15 years. Redpill me on what has changed gear wise, because I haven't even touched or watched anything fishing related since. Any new cool stuff? Looking to buy some new stuff, affordable, but not junk. This will be a general freshwater setup, but my area has some pretty big largemouth and catfish. My goal is to have the smallest rod possible, but able to handle decent sized fish.

>go on a short 3 hour hike

>notice a tick on crawling on my shirt

So it begins. I'm usually pretty meticulous about treating pants, shirt, socks, and boots with premethrin(also my pack, hat and car interior) . I got lazy this time and since it was only a 3 hour hike I wore jeans and a t shirt.

Earlier I read a paper about premethrin from clothes entering your bloodstream and eventually being excreted via urine, especially when wearing treated clothes in hot weather and for a long time. So now, on top of being worried about the tick jew, I'm worried about the carcinogenic (among other issues) effects of premethrin. So do I risk Lyme and other horrid tick diseases or take my chances with premethrin? The season is here and with it the tick menace returns. Paper I referenced linked below.

Fishing Beginner
How do I start? Never had anyone to teach me. It looks pretty easy but there’s so many different types of fishing (it seems) and gear, tackle, also jargon, it’s hard to know where to begin. If I catch a fish how do I know if I can/should eat it? What basic gear should I get to make a start?

I live in Scotland (similar climate and geography to British Columbia). Lots of rivers and Lochs with Salmon etc. Thanks for any advice.

Carring all that gear may look aesthetic, but it's ridiculous

NO you don't need to carry and axe or hatchet. Axes and hatchet are civilization-building tools. They are NOT useful for the lonesome hiker or survivalist. They're heavy, and using them they're going to suck the living energy out of you like nothing else. Axes and hatchets are tools that need to be put into a shed when not in use, like they always were. They should never be part of a part of your /out/ kit.

And look at those shoes you are wearing! Why are you trying to imitate the military? They're like anchors on your feet! Using those will soak up a ton of calories. Shed them! Use moccasins or go barefoot where it's allowed.

No you don't need 3 pots and pans, a collapsible saw,

Survival is a calorie game. You can't be wasting all that energy on carrying dead-weight. You should be building a kit that is as lightweight as possible, the less shit you have to haul, the more calories you'll save, the less you need to eat. Survival bushcraft is not about larping and looking good, it's about knowing the essentials and way the around the forests, and how to conserve the most energy and make the best of little.

/Out/ings With a Pipe Thread #37
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:

One of the best /out/ smells is freshly cut oak. Unfortunately, the only time I smell it is when an oak tree is cut down and thick limbs are open to the air (Quercus nigra usually). I can't smell it in the leaves, small branches, or dried logs.

/out/ real estate and lifestyle
what is the best /out/ state to buy real estate and live a homesteading lifestyle?

alternatively, a specific listing.

heres my criteria:

>worst tier:
blue state
lots of development

>bad tier:
no mountain and/or water access
large cities no farther than 2.5 hrs apart
strict hunting laws

>ok tier:
carved out "plots" instead of natural swaths of land
close to medium size town
sustainable income/industry

>good tier

lenient laws
reasonable taxes

>great tier
little immigration/homogenous
cheap land
mountain/water access
30-45 minutes from a small town, >2.5 hrs to big city

>50 acres
>includes chapel ON PROPERTY, barns, sheds etc
>short drive from town of 1k, 3 hr drive to major city

innawoods toiletpaper machine
so this is a little late to the party but I do some woodworking as a hobby and you can basically just make your own toiletpaper with a sharp enough handplane and some appropriate softwood. A good idea for anyone who wanted to live off grid anyway. You can just buy some decentish old plane in working order from a flea market and sharpen it with about 1000-8000 grit stones. getting a decent 10000 grit stone would give you the best shot at these types of really fine shavings but they are a bit pricey. Just make sure it is a carbon steel blade and relatively wide.

Survival food
Not many people are talking about Dehydrating food, or its use in all kinds of emergency or outdoor activities.
Making your own DIY / Homemade meal packs.. not MRE(meal ready to eat) but meal package that requires minimal tools and time to prepare.

For example.. dehydrating rice and beans an putting them in air tight/food saver (air removed) bag with some seasoning and spices. It's a meal ready to eat after couple minutes soaking in water.. preferably hot water.. but in emergency room temp water works fine.

By making your own dehydrated travel/emergency meal's your saving on lots of packing space and weight. Saving money.. and some dehydrated food can last for 30+ years.. and if placed in freezer temps, food can last indefinitely.. far more Superior then bulky can filled with beans. Also in my opinion more superior then MRE.. for reason of shelf life. MRE's are definitely useful in emergency situations, especially extreme situation where person can't get to water, MRE in those situations would be more ideal.. but for long haul I'd suggest people look into old fashioned dehydrating food.

To make your own, person doesn't need anything fancy. Anyone can dehydrate food using just the sun on hot day, or camp fire, but if can get access to stove or actual dehydrating machine that would be easy route.. using stove it takes 2-6+ hours on Lowest setting for your stove 140-150f°. Also cheap to do..

A machete is the most useful bladed tool for /out/
It ranks above the axe, hatchet, tomahawk, fixed blade knife or and folding knife

It can take alot of abuse
It takes the least amount of effort to chop
It can fell down trees
It can prepare meals
It can strike a fire
It's the most effective at self defense of the bunch
It's easy to sharpen
It can chop firewood
It's the only one that's effective at making a trail through dense bush

If you could only have one bladed tool it should be a machete.

I'm from the Netherlands. It is illegal to camp in the woods, to make a fire, etc etc. Looking for some folks here either from the Netherlands or other countries where this is not allowed. How do you camp? Any special tips?

I'm going fucking insane indoors. The weather is amazing, I'm thinking of going into the woods and go bushcraft mode one day + night.

I would need to find the most wooded spot in the entire country to do this because we don't have lots of dense forests. I was thinking of finding some hilly terrain and going in a lower area, hang up a hammock and make a small fire, but I don't know how well smoke can be seen by others in some areas.

Winter camping general
I need to get the fuck away from my family; gonna go spend as long as I can bear in the woods. I've never winter camped before, but I've frozen my nuts off so I know all the common mistakes.
I'm not gonna bother bringing a tent, just gonna build a shelter, probably the 'scoutmaster' style.
The nearest viable option to do this happens to be at 10,500 feet elevation. Luckily it's not supposed to drop too far below freezing up there, and my sleeping bag is good up to 15F/-10C.
I've packed only clothes including my wool Moroccan jellaba, firestarters, a hatchet, a big kielbasa, and a liter of whisky. Hopefully I'll get some trout. If I can't make it at least 48 hours I'm gonna kill myself with my .22LR, or at least try.

I don't like having multiple pairs of shoes. I want an all-purpose boot that I can wear with long pants into the office or for nice events, but can get them dirty as hell on the weekends in the outdoors.

Five years ago I had a stomach problem and the doctor advised me to go for a walk. I started walking 10km and then up to 20. It started to become a bit boring as I was always seeing the same street and the same landscape. Back then I had no car so I had no way to go to other places. As a result, I had to search for more interesting ways of walking so I started to go from point A to point B by the most "secret" route I could imagine. It was like I was roleplaying I was a prisioner scaping from his guards, I avoided being seen by neigboors, cars or people. Bonus point if I walked on forests or abandoned places.
Now my country is on quarantine and police are arresting those that walk in the street (unless you are walking your dog or going to the supermarket). I go out to walk twice or three times a week and I walk more than 10 miles. I have a great knwoledge of which streets are not patrolled by police, which places allow me not to be seen, how to hide in the trees.

What do yo think bout this? Am I the only one here who likes this "roleplay" where you walk on the street or by the road, pretending you can not be seen by anyone?

(pic is an example of what I mean)

Underground / Speleology/ Catacombs / Metro / Technical Galleries Thread

Anyone else spend their free time underground ?

When not on lockdown due to covid;

I, like hundreds weekly spend our freetime in the underground catacombs of Paris and quarry around the region.

For the past fifty years there have been an underground culture in the ancient quarrys beneath Paris.

There are concerts, exploration, history, street art, parties, sculpture, rooms which were built, bunkers from ww2 etc..

Feel free to ask questions and I'll also dump some trivia

GoTenna: Price Aside, Good or Bad?
I live on top of a hill and think I would be a great spot for a relay location. I imagine a large happy mesh network where everyone is sticking to big phone companies and ready for the apocalypse at the same time. Is this product worth buying if you don't know anyone else that owns it? Yes it is a shit ton of money for limited tech, I already have good walkie talkies, a marine radio and a ham radio. Is this a good safety item price aside?

A girl in my college class invited me for an overnight hike.
I take this as she wants to have sex with me. But my girlfriend doesn't think so and tells me, "not all girls want to fuck, they just want to be friends." I've only ever done overnight trips with girlfriends. Also what kind of beta accepts invite and then doesn't try to fuck the girl in the comfy tent under the stars? Obviously my gf is either retarded or I'm getting the wrong signals from this girl, my gf says I should go because she trusts me. What the fuck do I do bros? Do you guys go on overnight hikes with women and not fuck them?

Hi /out/. I need some help identifying this rock.
It's kind of bubbly on the inside with a glass like surface in some spots. It reflects light sometimes.
I found it while disking a field in an area where I didn't expect finding something like this. Not near any water, around 335m above sea level.
The rock type of the area is bunter sandstone. Any help would be appreciated.

GPS Systems
Do you guys use a GPS as either a primary or a backup when going out? I’ve always used a map and compass, and I enjoy it, but as I do bigger trips, it makes sense to have a backup incase I get really turned around. I don’t have a smartphone, so that isn’t and option. The Garmin handhelds seem to be pretty solid, but do you guys have any other recommendations?

Fellow Aussies, proud Sydneysider here. How far west would I have to go from Sydney to find somewhere quiet and flat enough I could camo camp a few hundred metres off the road. I need somewhere I can pull my non-/out/ 86 off the road and to be far enough away from settlements that I don’t get murdered by some bogans for a night or two. I have plenty of shit I’ve just never been further west than Dubbo and have nothing better to do in the next 72 hours.
