Say I need to boil two cups of water a few times every day in the backcountry for a week. Hexamine tablets or gas? Lighter? More efficient? What is the most efficient/smallest/lightest pot that can handle two cups? >inb4 crap solutions like alcohol stoves made from tin cans and scrounging for dry wood

Hermit Life

67 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
tl;dr I want to live off my own sustainability in the forest, like minimal log house, accessible water source, feeding off grown garden and whatever I bring in when i reup supplies. Ok let me get into detail now. I want to live as a semi hermit, not totally locked off from society but enough to independently live off the resources around. Google was no help. How do I go about in REALLY committing to doing something like this? I just want to live free, tending to my garden, collecting fire wood, refining my shelter, and whatever the fuck else I please. Not forever alone type of deal, idk. Guide me /out/

so I left my basement yesterday. I took a three hour walk along the river Rhein, where it forms the natural border between Germany and Switzerland. Since I'm such a fat neckbeard, that little hike was already enough to make me hobble for a day. Seems like my feet are damaged from my teenage years, where I was still skateboarding

Help

Next week my boyscout troop and I are going to camp la-no-Che in central Florida. For those who don't know much about Florida, in the summer it gets very very hot with temperatures of 90+ (that's Fahrenheit of course) and it looks like it's gonna be raining all next week. There's no skipping option and I'm not much of an outdoors person plus I'm pretty damn unhealthy and lazy. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to stay cool, comfortable, and entertained?

I was out fishing at this small lake on a little boat with a trolling motor. I has my dog in the boat and was a little drunk and the boat almost tipped over at one point. The bad thing is that the boat battery fell out. It's probably 10 ft down. The next day I dove down and searched as much as I could but no luck. What to do? Is something bad going to happen?

"WatchFire" brand axes suck

83 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So, this happened this weekend. Friend brought this axe on a backcountry camping trip Friday, and while unpacking his gear the blade sliced right through its own sheath and into his finger, leaving about a half an inch deep and 1.5 in length laceration. (this axe was one of the sharpest blades I've seen) Being that we were a 5 mile hike from any vehicle and 100 miles from any sort of hospital or even urgent care we decided I would use my suture kit (I am an MD) to stitch him up with some 3-0 Prolene. Anyway, mainly wanted to get the word out that these axe sheaths are inherently extremely unsafe. There literally is zero backing in the sheath against the blade to prevent them from cutting out of it. Since camping by its nature takes people away from emergency services and enhances the danger of any sort of injury, I find this sort of safety profile totally unacceptable for a piece of gear. On another note I can't believe I actually had to suture innawoods! I also was with two licensed physician assistants and since my FAK had most of the right equipment we all agreed it was the best option. Any questions about the episode, I'll be happy to answer.

Hey fisherman, do me a favor and stick your head underwater and try to breathe for 5 minutes. Did you ever think about how all the fish you "catch and release" feel after being ripped from their environment and suffocated for minutes at a time feel? Do you think if you were waling to school or work and suddenly had a sharp piece of metal impaled into your cheek and got dragged underwater how you would feel. Do you think you would be able to function normally for the rest of your life? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U94p7XgpWM8

I like walking in the rain if it has been a warm day. I think its refreshing and I like the smell. Today was a very hot day and at 9pm, when it had cooled down a little and it seemed like we might get some rain, I decided to go for a walk through the small forrest thats just a few minutes away from where I live. When I went out, on my way to the forrest, I saw some lightning, far away. Not actual loightning, but that kind that stays within the clouds. Dont know the english word for it. It doesnt cause thunder either. I didnt bother, in fact I thought it looked nice. And a mild wind started to push away some of the heat. Lightning high up in the clouds. Temperature drop. Wind starts. No clue why I didnt realize what was coming. Was thinking about stuff, distracted. My typical route through the woods takes like half an hour. When I was like half way, the wind became much stronger, suddenly. A massive rain started, combined with enormous thounder and massive lightning, like 10 per minute. Within like three minutes the wind became a storm. Nothing extraordinary, but definately worth that title. When I heared branches breaking high up in the trees and when I saw them falling down I became very worried. Its an actual forrest, not some clean park. Some of these trees are old, and they grow over the way I was walking on everywhere. I was scared that I might be hit by a falling branch or something. And it wasnt false alarm, as I realy got hit. It was a small one, so it didnt hurt me. But it felt unpleasantly real and dangerous. I needed like ten minutes to get out of the woods and by that time it was a full grown thunderstorm and the streets were flooded, and lose stuff was flying around. I dont recall the last time I was so frightened :)
