So, where does a 40 year oldfag go wild camping in germany?

This is a strange country. Seems to me it's forbidden to do anything besides work, consume and sleep.

I killed some baby bunnies in our backyard yesterday.

Our dog had moved the fluff away after my mom moved the barrel that the burrow was dug under during some yardwork. The day we found them, their eyes were still closed, yet one was hopping into the grass nearby. It wanted out, but we moved it back into the burrow, and created a rudimentary brick structure to cover it up, at my suggestion. To prevent it from getting hot, I added a plastic bin on top, while still hoping to leave enough room for the doe to get in and out. They were hardly moving. A couple days later, the parents checked on them and said they were "still" moving around a lot. A couple days after that, there were ants, flies, and worms all over them, with a single baby rabbit strewn out in the grass a few inches away from an exit to the bricks.

This is the second time we've tried to help rabbitkind on our property, but it's the first time I acted without researching what to do. I'll always look up what to do first when I help animals supposedly in-need, to never lead them to certain death again.

"The missing 411"

So what do you think about this conspiracy theory/modern american mystery?


In case you don't know the long and short of it is an ex cop tracking cold cases for a book he is writing about runaways or something starts to notice any missing people in certain areas are strange in a ironically uniform way. He checks for commonly occurring factors across these cases and the same thing always pops up: every one went missing in a national park.

He starts to shift focus onto these cases and notices an extraordinary amount of people go missing in US national parks every year. The more he digs the stranger it gets. Cases where the circumstances are mysterious bordering on the paranormal, downs syndrome children being found a day later dead 3 mountains away from their campsite in deep woods, a man found disemboweled 20ft up in a tree, a 90 year old man in the middle of a crowd vanished on a track with no brush around it and his lower torso was found next to his clothes with the socks in the shoes and socks over trousers like they melted off him and so on.

Then he starts to realise the shocking part: not only do the parks know they seem to be covering it up.

Some try to contact him and later lose their jobs, others show up at his hotels on visits to parks to tell him to stop digging and any calls to officials to use the freedom of information act for case files is met with a 'thats not going to happen' but only for case files about disappearances IN the parks.

Some say its bigfoot, some say its drug grow ops in these massive parks run by gangs the government doesnt want people to know are turning the parks into the worlds druglab breadbasket and crazier shit like aliens or cults of innawoods serial killers.

Regardless of the cause the objective fact is that the sheer number of cases in such a specific area are grossly unusual and suggest something unique is going on on a level that either the US government cannot control or worse has no idea what it is and keep it quiet out of fear.

So what do you think about it?

Background: began like most of the other ventures on /k/ and /pol/. Thread was started, looking for other people who want to get away from (((society))) and form a community in the woods of Alaska. So far we have 4-5 dedicated members and are looking for a total of about 10.

We are generally looking to move onto the property in early 2020, but 2019 might be possible if we get the ball rolling and you want to live in a tent with no supplies

The honeypot will explain more. Please bring questions, expertise, or suggestions. We know the difficulty involved and are trying to learn from the past.

Only requirements are that you are a white male (world wide European/euro diaspora), want out of society, and can dedicate labor and funding to the venture when we get to that point

P.S: If you have a suggestion for more secure communications, we are all ears

Why the fuck do the zippers on my jacket catch on the material of the pockets? It's a fucking Columbia jacket, "goretex", and they could not BOTHER to TAPE UP THE MATERIAL AROUND THE ZIPPERS on the inside of the pockets to prevent binding??!!

Also, I have an Oakley backpack for computer equipment. Now after a few months, the double zippers separate on one side so I have to zip them to one side to prevent my gear from flying out. And there are no fucking straps to clip the compartments shut, all the pressure is resting on the zippers!!

Also, why the fuck would they use "aesthetically pleasing" underdimensioned zippers when they should have used big fucking japanese YKK zippers??!!!!

Longest Continuous Trip?

Mine was 11 weeks in the high desert. I used primitive fire-making techniques (bow drill: sage spindles, juniper root board + hand drill: yucca spindle, sage board). I slept under a tarp, and spent most of my time woodcarving. I brought food and water in via truck. It was very comfy.

We did some hikes around the desert and up the surrounding peaks, but obviously couldn't pack all of our food and water around so hiking was limited.

Pic related is from google but is more or less what the terrain looked liked.

Operation Information Liberation


>Original Post


>Hey guys, starting a new project on pol, looking for any and all relevant content to this project. I'll be going through to catalog, but anything from your personal archives or resources off site that wouldn't be here, and I would be mucho appreciadado!


The online digital age has rendered institutionalized education obsolete and has left them exposed as the detriments to society that they have become. Colleges no longer exist to educate, but to indoctrinate. And to add insult to injury, we're paying through the nose for the right to have our youth brainwashed against us by these narcissistic ingrates.

No More.

This is a project that, in time, will be cross-posted across numerous boards, platforms & media, taking participation from numerous communities with Truth being our guiding light and uniting purpose. This project is designed to provide and highlight alternatives to mainstream universities, or at least offer an inoculation against the Marxist intellectual contagion perpetuated by these Institutions of Higher Indoctrination.

For the fields that can't just be done online, and require some sort of hard infrastructure, like a chemistry lab, we may want to consider utilizing, or copying the Maker Space route of community educational facilities.


We will need to find alternatives to acreditation.

This project will also need an accompanying meme campaign to get Normans, especially in the hiring class to associate a traditional college degree with risk. Risk that the person will be some sort of entitled SJW. Risk that they may file false sexual harrasment claims (Humungus). Risk that they may be incompetent at their job.

The Class of 2018 graduates in May. I imagine high-schools will be having college days, fliers, trips, speakers, recruiters, field days, etc throughout March and April. When that begins, I'd like to see this project ready enough to print out business cards with the links and downloads for all the resources and content we'll be compiling.

Below is a compendium of resources I put together thus far.

I am looking for girls to talk to. I'm in the UK. I am a mid 20's NEET and I want a gf to talk to, sometimes send me lewd pics (Although not right away and only what you feel comfortable with sharing. I don't even want anything hardcore anyway. In fact I don't even fap anymore, I'd just like it as a sign of your affection.) and encourage me. You will be my Misaki from NHK.

I am a very nice person and very sensitive and romantic. I will swear myself to you and you to me and I shall take it very seriously and the idea is I would do everything I could, with your encouragement and help, to make my life better so we could be together and then we'd get married and have kids.

Obviously I will need some proof you are actually girl fairly early on. We'll talk about it and what you feel most comfortable with posting to me as proof. For example, you probably would not like to share a face pic. idk we'll talk about it.

I play the piano and know some music theory and have begun writing some songs on the piano. I am also, very sporadically, writing a book. I play video games a bit, but very rarely for the past couple years. Maybe once a week. Mostly I just browse randomly on the internet and imageboards.

I dont mind transportation but I would like to travel on foot mostly unless I require othermeans to get to my destination.

Anyways, I need some ideas on where to go. I guess to be specifically, "must sees" of the world.

advice on tents

Hello- first post here.

So I think I'm going to ask my parents to buy me a backpacking tent for christmas (1 man), probably in the range of a couple hundred dollars US, obviously I'd like it to be as light as possible but also versatile.

Most of the tents that I'm used to (I think most people are used to) have the normal tent that the poles go in with a raincover over the top. Obviously the benefit to this design is that you have a way to cool off and let some wind through when it's hot.

But last summer when I was in norway I borrowed someone's tent that worked sort of opposite- you put the poles in the outside and then buckle the part that you sleep in into the inside, so the inside can't stand up on its' own. This seemed to stay a lot warmer which was nice for elevation, also I spent some time in the arctic with it.

So in the next year I'll probably spend nights outside both in the tropics and in the arctic, is there one tent that offers a happy medium or versatility? What would make it worth it to have 2 backpacking tents? Seems like some of the insulated hammocks are a good idea to, but that limits you to places with trees.

Recs or other considerations would be welcome.

Hunting, Leatherworking, Meat Processing

So is this the proper board to bring up a discussion on hunting? I'm working on passing my bowhunter's education before eventually taking to the field to claim a few furbearing pests (such as coyotes as they're absolutely everywhere).

I recently obtained a few tools for working with animal hide and leather, hoping to eventually not only skin my kills but create a few nice pieces of clothing to honor them.

Plus, I'm doing some research on good jerky techniques.

But one thing that's been eating at the back of my mind for a few is performing a proper coup de grace on a dying animal. I want to make sure it passes into the next world as easy as possible. What type of knives work best for this? should I even go in for the finish or stay back and finish from afar?

Compact Kayak Thread!

Anyone else use, or totally in love with portable kayaks? I am a proud and happy owner of an Oru Kayak Bay. They are a bit pricey, but are perfect when you're short on room, are lighter than conventional kayaks, and a notch more elegant in my reckoning.


I thought folding kayaks were enough. Boy was I surprised when I learned about Pakayak! Its sections nest into each other.


It's heavier than my Bay, at 55 vs. 26 lbs, but its heavier body would make it a better choice for white water, a no-go for Oru kayaks. I don't need a 2nd kayak, but will be getting a $10 sticker in Pakayak's ongoing Kickstarter. Best to encourage healthy competition I figure.


Maybe in the future Oru Kayak and Pakayak will be the Coke and Pepsi of portable kayaks. Since I've seen images of both in San Francisco Bay, I'd love if the companies and fans could get together some day for playful competitions and outdoorsmen's fellowship.

I love taking my Oru Bay on the river. It's light enough to be carried through the woods from my house and back, and always draws attention. Anyone else partake in the wonderful world of portable kayaks, or are conventional kayaks your preference?

First time posting here! (So if I got the wrong board, please do correct me)

I have some sort of dream for my future self.

I want to live for a long period of time (4-6 years) in a private cabin built by myself, noting that it should hold at least 4 people (Wife and 3 kids, maybe 5) all the while being excluded enough in nature so that you can hunt and for my kids to grow up far from the destructive force that is mass media/technology.

I know far eastern Russia is a good candidate since it has vast secluded places, but I made this post to see your opinions on location and if it is actually possible to do.

(Obviously me and my wife would have extensive education and practice on guns, medicine, farming and hunting.)

Hey /out/

I usually come here to lurk and learn stuff about outdoor living since I'm a big fan of being outside and working.

Me and some people are currently working on a project where we are setting up a crowdfunded at the moment, to buy land somewhere in Canada (location/country not 100% sure right now but Canada seems like the best option right now since land is very cheap).

The idea is to build up a self-sustainable eco-friendly village out in the open where we can hunt/fish/work/build, well just do things that we enjoy doing outdoors. We have people with various skills and backgrounds and have been planning/working on this idea for over 5-6 months now.

Well so you get an idea of what you can do there: The plot we're currently looking at is in Ontario, Canada. Its 65 hectares (650'000m2) of land and costs only 16'000 USD and you can pay 7'000 and then 200 dollars per month until the whole 16k is paid!

It's not to far away from a pretty big town and as I said, outside in the open near a river and between 2 larger lakes.

This is a great place to experience canadian wildlife and beautiful landscapes so that's why i came here.

Would there be any people interested in join in on the project/help funding ? I'm not asking you to come along and live over there but it could be a great place if you would like to spend time each year out in the free (or a great getaway if the west turns to shit hehe). Well if you want more info on the project or just talk some about it I'll lurk the thread and could provide some sort of chat platform!

Where is /out/ from?

Where are you from? What's the /out/doors like there? Local trails/recommended hiking areas?

From Vermont myself. Basically everyone lives in or near the woods here because the woods are almost everywhere.
The weather is all over the place around here. So much so that we have a saying, "If you don't like the weather, just stick around for a few minutes." It is known for being on the cold side (average temperature is 41º). Winter is generally pretty long and brutal but if you're into it, it's a great place to be for the snowy season.
Exploring can be pretty rewarding and we have 52 sanctioned state parks for hiking, biking, skiing or whatever else, but I've had good times just roaming around my backyard if I don't feel like driving anywhere.
Green River Reservoir and Kettle Pond are some good remote camping areas, as for hiking, some of the better known mountains are Mt. Ascutney, Smuggler's Notch and Wantasequet, though the latter is actually in NH, I live within sight of it, so I hike it often. Not to mention, the Appalachian Trail runs through here so there are some great hikes along it like Gifford Woods.
The people around here are mostly hippies which is actually a good thing because it means that wild camping is allowed (or at least, no one cares) and most people are willing to hike at any time so I rarely go at it alone.

I like to go camping and then once I have my site secure with firewood I get ready for some light swimming, fishing, hiking, exploring.

Getting a map of a new area to make sure you aren't going over private property or some type of park reserve is recommended. You want semi-wild to wild areas instead of getting into legal situations.

I set up my tent in as open a space as I can find, I only go in summers. Then I seek out at least a 20 metre walk into the thick to find a recently fallen tree for some big firewood logs. After tht I mostly pick up the dry sticks that are all over the place. Once I have enough for the night and next after noon I set out to explore the nearest water. When it's a river there is little to do however if there is a lake nearby I check out the shore and figure out how deep it goes and what the bottom looks like. If it's a semi-wild area then I check for recent garbage especially glass.

Once I've had a swim and all the firewood is ready, provided I arrived early in the day, I go out walking the area. No more than 30 minutes before heading back again. I attempt to stay within sight of either the water edge or some other clearing so that I don't lose my direction. I note any major fallen trees for some medium sized wood in the next few days. I get back to my tent and start a cozy fire. Usually with some sausages to roast over the heat. When I bring others we talk about whatever then. I don't do ghost stories that's boring. We might talk about the future of owning and living in many places like this.

The next day if there is a lake nearby I will go swimming whenever I wake up. I love that fresh water dive.

What to do if you spot a bear? Hope you remembered to eat all the meat you brought with you the day before and dispose of anything that touched the meat and washed your hands. Bears will walk the other way as soon as they see or sniff you out. You'll only want to be careful when you walk around that you don't get near any mothers but that is only more of a problem in the spring.

Get your shoes on lets go for a few hours walk. It's so good out here in the forest.

Backpacking Cross Country

Hey /out/. I just turned 18 and have been wanting to do this for awhile now.
I want to go backpacking across the country because I'm itching for adventure and want to step out of both my comfort zone and my monotonous lifestyle. Also because my mother can't support my neet ass and I don't want to get a job at this young age, becoming a wage slave.
Anyway, let's say I have a budget of around 300 dollars. Maybe more, maybe less.
What do I buy? I'm thinking I would just get milsurp shit since they're pretty sturdy, and I'm on a budget. What would you guys recommend?
>Sleeping bag
>And other must-have supplies
I've done research, but any general tips on backpacking, hitch hiking, train-hopping, and other useful advice to help me on my journey would be appreciated.
ALSO, should I try to group up with another person? I was thinking a gril, since they have tits, thus making it easier to hitch hike. Where would I go about finding other people interested in the same idea?

Does Urban Exploration count as /out/? - Advice

Posting here because halfchan is failing at one of the simplest of tasks for an imageboard, posting (go figure). Here's the thread on half: https://boards.4chan.org/out/thread/450933/

Now, I'm connotating the term "urban exploration" to mean NOT just abandoned areas, but an entire city.

Take Boston, for example.
I will likely in the future have the opportunity to return there, the first time I visited it was for about 3 days. The freedom of the city (never used a subway before, good walkability, etc.) blew me away and gave me an idea for if I were ever to return: to go around the city with little to nothing on me.

Of course, I'd have residence there, but while exploring the city (probably on average 6+ hours at a time) I was thinking of the following to carry:
Flip phone
Light watch and hoodie
(Possibly) a camera

The carry is light to minimize loss in the case I were to get mugged/robbed. No weapons are in the carry because evasion is my best bet if I were to build up my endurance (mentioned on the half thread)

I'm sure there's more to it than just that. Has anyone else done something similar? Feel free to nitpick at parts of the idea that may not work— I'm open to criticism.

Hello /out/, I was wondering how many of you here have plans for homesteading, or self sufficiency? basically like a long term version of going innawoods or bug out bag, it is being able to provide for yourself over a very long period of time.

Skills required to do so among many would be farming, animal husbandry, hunting, fishing, trapping, and maybe a small textile place where you can make your own clothes.

The point of going through with all this is I want to live outside of the US in a random country in the middle of nowhere, far far away from the US when it does collapse. I was wondering if anyone else had plans like this, how they are preparing themselves, and id just like to get to know people with the same idea I have. thanks.

Dumbass General

So, /out/, I'm going on a 3-4 night camping trip in a backwoods campsite on the north of Vancouver Island (amenities are clean water and an outhouse, plus the occasional patrol to make sure there're no dead bodies lying around) in February.
I'm an idiot who has only ever gone summer camping at pleb campsites. (Hot water/showers, firewood sold on-site, etc)

I figure I'd bring a week's worth of supplies, but avoid using the easy option unless we'd be fucked otherwise.
I.e., try to find dry wood/kindling in the snowy forests and make our own fires, but if we prove so incompetent that we can't even manage that, we have a camp stove, fuel, and our own kindling, etc, so that we don't freeze/starve. Basically, I want to get into outdoorsmanship, but recognize that I am a blithering yuppie who's gonna fuck up a lot before he gits gud.
Have any of you ever been winter camping? Anything you'd recommend a moron bring that I might not think of?
My buddy is /k/ incarnate, how do I not make him regret inviting me along? He says he'll teach me, but I want to do him proud.

They're like my little non-sexual fetish,and I decided I want a big one.All stuff I found was too damn expensive,until I came across Skyray king.This piece of shit I'm talking about is like $75 with batteries (4x 4000 mAh) and charger,it has 9 XM-L T6 LEDs,and they advise it has 15000 lumens.That's impossible,since one T6 led emits maximum of 910 lumens @ 10 watts.But still,it should be a lot of light.On full charge it should work for 210 minutes,so if they don't lie about the batteries capacity,that should mean it has 24 watts and around 2300 lumens (that's what I calculated,it's very estimated,but still closer to reality than 15000).So,does anyone here have some experience with those pieces of cheap aluminium,optionally alternatives for maximally around $100 with batteries and charger? Thanks.

spearfishing noob

cant decide on my first speargun.

>I've been using polespear for a while but want a gun now.

>dont know if I should go with pneumatic or band.
I'll definitely need a short length as most of my fishing is in reef.
>would like something of decent quality that I can grow into, attach a reel to and expand my fishing game.
>I'm only freediving for now but wouldnt rule out scuba in future.>
I fish off the beach and boat.

also any reasoned brand loyalties can be stated here.

Legally innawoodsing

Faggots over at /k/ keep telling me to go innawoods, but I'm not sure exactly where I go to do that.
Is it even possible to legally go out into some woods to camp in America? The closest I've heard of is "rustic sites" where a campsite just gives you a slightly larger area.
Is it easy and safe enough to just sit in a State Park overnight? The worst we have around here are coyotes as far as I know.

Easy ways to get outside in the Winter.

I live in kind of an urban area and I really miss living in the woods. I want to get outside more during the winter. Any ideas?

OC creation

/out/ is fucking slow.
How about building some OC?

I was thinking a cool way would be survival tasks for people to do in the /out/doors a bit like picrelated, but less retarded.

I'd hate to be that guy, but can any of you help me in identifying this tree?

I live in Northern Central Massachusetts. Everything is just starting to turn fall, and this tree right near me has these red berries that small like ripe apricots. Now, I'm not gonna eat random tree berries. But I trust your knowledge.

This picture has one of the red berries, a leaf, and some bark. Does anybody know what tree this is?

Hello /out/doorsmen, what's your favorite weather.

Pic related, it's my favorite. I love it when it is foggy, with maybe a light misty rain.
