So I just got home from a road trip to take my girlfriend to see her best friend get married. There is a very large military base nearby so there are surplus shops EVERYWHERE. As we were about to make the trip back home, I stopped at one last store just to look around. Didn't find too much, until we were about to leave. The clerk was putting a tag on a bag that looked really nice. I walk over to see a Mystery Ranch 3 Day Assault Pack in Multicam with the BVS system laying on the counter. Clerk proceeds to tell me that a guy came in here earlier that day and sold it to him, said he only used it once to carry clothes to the airport. This thing is seriously in immaculate condition. I check the tag, thinking its going to be $300 or so...but i was wrong.....he wanted $125 for it. I have never pulled my debit card out of my wallet faster. So, good find? >Pic related

Have any of you actually done this?

Hey /out/ what's the best way to catch crayfish? Preferably in a rocky northeastern lake. I have tried the wire box traps but they never seem to catch much. The other way is with a flashlight and a little net, which works but is tedious.


HIKING BOOTS 21 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click to view.
What are some of the best hiking boots for around $80 or less? I would prefer them to be pretty /fa/ too, I hate buying ugly hiking shoes. I'm going on a 130 mile trek in the next week, the terrain will mainly be dirt roads and gravel. I'll be dumping /out/ wall papers. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I wanted to try something a little different. It's actually a survival scenario exercise. The idea was last year there was a significant natural disaster where I live, namely floods. I think I did okay. I evacuated but I could have got along just fine for the 7 days they evacuated the area if I had been trapped. Anyway the idea is someone puts forward a major disaster scenario and conditions (like no power, no water, no roads). You tell how you'd cope/survive it for let's say 3 weeks as you'd be currently prepared/equipped. The second part is you identify preparations you could have had in place before hand that would have made it easier to survive. The main goals here are to determine how you might react to a crisis and secondly to identify preparations that would be a good idea to undertake in case of unforeseen disaster

After I finish college I want to go alone to a trip for as long as I can(three months max). Its going to happen in the middle of Europe(Czech republic) so I am not going to be eaten by bears or get lost in the middle of nowhere.(most of treads on /out/ discuss these topics as it seems) What should I expect and what should I take to the trip? Is it possible to knock on doors in villages and ask for food in exchange for some help or they wont trust me or need it? Is it also good idea to take just poncho instead of tent?
Can we have an /out/ math... 4 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Can we have an /out/ math thread? My question today: When you're measuring your ascent/ descent, do you measure this using the highest point on your hike/ whatever or the total distance you cover from going "upwards" so to speak. Example: Mt. Anon is 1000m high. To get to the peak of Mt. Anon, you ascend 600m, descend 200m (due to a valley) and then ascend 600m to the peak of Mt. Anon. Would you count the total ascent for this hike to be 1000m or 1200m (600+600). Also, what's the average pace you hike at? My last /out/: 14.6 miles in 8h 21 mins (including rest stops and lunch stop)

So guys. I just bought my first "first aid kit" and i'm wondering what i can add to it besides the basic stuff that it already comes with. So far i have added painkillers, a small flashlight and Hand sanitizer. I'm thinking i should add some spare batteries for the flashlight too. Please come with advice /out/ I'm going camping soon for the first time ever with my friends so i want to be prepared. Pic is somewhat related. It's a first aid kit but mine isn't nearly as big as that.
Hey /out/! I've always... 3 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /out/! I've always wondered how people who don't buy the land that they live on have found a way to live in the wilderness, or even just in a beautiful semi-remote country setting, without getting caught and kicked out. I understand that some people live on their family's land or have found a community or something that wants people to join them or even have found caretaking jobs. I'm working with my girlfriend to someday buy our own land and maybe do some property caretaking on the way, but I'm interested to see if anybody here has lived out for free or had any experience with caretaking or homesteading style communities. tl:dr what do you know about living out for free/cheap

Hey, /out/, my daughter went with a friend on a hike today and came back with a few of these wildflowers. Normally, I look them up to make sure that they're okay, and she always wants me to tell her what the flowers she brings home are called, but I couldn't find it on any wildflower identification sites. I'm shit at telling these things apart, so I'm going to ask in the hopes that somebody knows what it is. -6 petals, dark purple with yellow speckles -3 pronged stigma -6 total anthers/filaments -Found in Oregon, just before crossing into Washington Also I apologize for the horrid camera quality. Camera broke last week so I'm left with my webcam.

Hey /out/, I'm having some personal time with cannabis, and it struck me that I can make money while doing the thing I love. How successful could a hemp corporation be? If I began a cannabis farm, and manufactured the hemp into usable things like hemp concrete, hemp paper, ect, could this become a multibillion dollar industry much like the steel industry? Hemp has thousands of ecological uses. Could I be on to something? Sorry if this sounds strange, i'm extremely stoned at the moment
Hey /out/ I'm interested... 26 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /out/ I'm interested in living as cheaply as possible and would appreciate some answers. 1. Were I to live in a tent on the outkirts of a town, would I freeze to death in winter? 2. How much would it cost me annually? (I have £7000 in my bank account) 3. Would it be possible to shower in a local swimming pool's showers every morning for free? 4. If the above is impossible, do you think it's possible to live without permaneny abode in a major city and still look good and remain healthy? The reason I ask is that I'm 22 and currently waste my time from 6:30am until 6:30pm every day working or commuting, and it's making me suicidal. Any advice at all for someone in my position?

is this a good idea? vama veche in romania? on 1st of may? basically...from what i've gathered so far...it's a huge musical festival that attracts thousands of people. and a lot of them sleep in tents on the beach (that's what i'm also planning to do). and everyone gets high as fuck and incredibly drunk. how safe is this shit? what's worst case scenario? have you ever been to something like this? was it worth it? should i go?a

cool outdoor jobs

cool outdoor jobs 25 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Anybody have any cool outdoor jobs? This summer I'm returning to a job I had a few years ago where we spent the summer in Alaska cutting trees along the Alaska-Canada border. Pic related, it was taken on our last day up there and would gladly post some more We'll be above the Arctic Circle this year and should be working a lot faster and cover more ground since we will be heading into the tundra. We're going to set up a permanent camp for a few months that we will helicopter out of. Last time I was up there we got to stay in a shitty plywood motel since it was reasonably close to the border. This summer is going to be spent sleeping in tents, hauling and sanitizing water, helicoptering to work, trying to sleep during the midnight sun, and coming back to camp smelling like bug spray, chainsaw exhaust, and sweat. I can't wait. Btw, it's a government job so we won't be treated like shit
