I'm hitchhiking 400km into germany tomorrow (alone) and staying at a couchsurf host, but now i'm constantly switching between wanting to continue to hitchhike further, or going back home and spend the rest of my vacation in front of my pc. I'm not very used to all this, anyone else gets this or gets fear about doing adventurous things and going outside? What should I do?

Heya /out! I had an idea I thought might be fun, a little hypothetical scenario. Something different than the things I've been seeing on this board. Let's say that society has totally collapsed. Obviously this scenario is a little silly, but I find it interesting. Without listing all the items you would bring, what would be your first move? And by society collapsing I mean total infrastructure/government failure, and public unrest/riots. Extreme danger in urban areas, and basically no law enforcement. What would you do?! Personally I'd get all my survival gear, gather my family, gas up the vehicle and head to the woods. I live in massachusetts, the western part of the state is pretty dense forest. Once I was there my main priority would be scouting the area, building temporary leant-to's, and getting a basic camp together. I don't think I would stop for any supplies initially as I have enough in my basement to get us started which I would bring. From then on it would be all about improving our living facilities, and organizing scavenging parties. How bout you? I like thinking about this type of thing, I consider it a useful mental exercise.

/out/. City boy here. Would like to become self-reliant and be ready when SHTF. I've read couple of books but without practice it sucks. Nay or Yay: Using meetup.com to go to prepper meet ups and learn about survival? Primarily I would love to learn how to hunt small game innawoods and urban, sleep outside, how to avoid snipers, etc.

Sister is homeless. Help me improve her conditions.

Sister is homeless. Help me... 73 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Here's the deal: She was pretty well set up with a guy who had a small house and car, but met someone younger, thinner and better looking. She's chased after guys like that her whole life, so of course she drops the guy she is with and runs off with this new guy. Except he is homeless and lives in a tent on someone's forested property (with their permission) so now she is homeless too. I have tried to talk her into getting back with the dude who has a house so she can sleep indoors. No dice. For her, living the dream means securing a man half her BMI or less with a nice face and abs who is nonetheless willing to date a girl best described as shrek with tits. She has pulled this off, but he is destitute. She cannot move back in with our parents. She alienated them by stealing from them a bunch when she had a drug habit (got tangled up with an attractive drug dealer). She cannot move in with me because I rent a house with 4 other people none of whom want her living here. So, I am helping her seek govt. assistance and put in online job applications. She is bad with computers. Her only net access is the new guy's iphone which he uses over wifi to avoid paying monthly bills. It is crapping out and needs a new battery which I will probably buy. This saves me the trouble of filling out apps for her online. She only has a dumbphone so she can't fill out apps right now but can take calls from employers to do phone interviews. The "campsite" is by a river. They use traps to catch crawdads and do very well at it. They also occasionally catch salmon and are surrounded by blackberry bushes. This, plus food stamps, comprises most of their diet. I have instructed the guy how to build a water filter as shown in the picture so they can clean the river water enough to drink. I am looking for other similar guides I can print out and give them that will make their situation less miserable until one or both get jobs and save up enough to move into an apartment.

Recent acquisitions and wishlist thread? Tell us about what you've bought recently and what you want to buy! >pic related Got the 160 lumen BD Storm for $79NZD, at 20% off. Haven't had a chance to go /out/ with it yet but I'm really happy with it. I almost went for the spot, especially because it was cheaper, but the much wider beam and better waterproof rating (I have 2 children under 5 who are still developing better judgement regarding electronics and water...) sealed the deal. Also got a Sprayway Tempest (Goretex Performance shell) for $163, down from $579, which I'm extremely happy about since I've been using a Flecktarn Sympatex jacket which isn't exactly the most breathable thing around. >inb4 I should have just bought 10 moras

Hey guys, I'm posting this from the hospital as a reminder on axe safety. Spread your legs or kneel so that a glancing blow doesn't go straight into your leg. It was a stupid amature mistake because I got sloppy. Don't make the same mistake I did.

I understand leave no trace, but why do people take it to such extremes? Ive camped with people so fucking anal about that shit that they refuse to even build a fire and would rather stay cold and unhappy whith their dehydrated hummus and wont even forage or bushwack for fear of making smokey the bear angry or some shit

Could we get a battery pack thread going as I'm in the market for one. So much choice out there it's a bit baffling. I've had a cheaply one for around 3 years and. It still does 3 full iphone charges and it only cost me £12 Quite interested in solar panels First person to mention the biolite stove gets slapped

Recreational Boating

Recreational Boating 4 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I was out at the lake the other day with some friends, and I zoned out of whatever conversation was going on and start looking at the lake. Holy shit, it's a lot bigger than I thought it was. After watching an angry duck scream with incoherent rage at nothing at all for a while, I noticed the people with little kayaks and canoes and whatever on the lake. That shit looked a lot more fun than standing around on the shore like an asshole with nothing to do. So, I reckon I stop buying other stupid shit all winter long, and come spring or early summer I buy me a little kayak or canoe or whatever. Paddle out there on the lake and laugh at the dumb assholes on the shore. Probably get some good exercise too. Does anybody here do this, and do they have any thoughts for a potential beginner?

Are amusement parks /out/? Just spent the day at King's Island with my buddy and his sister, had a blast, rode all of the coasters besides Firehawk and Indigo. Had a blast. Sitting here in my office chair, my eyes are slightly bobbing up and down as I feel I'm being tossed up and down still, weird feeling. Parks and shit thread.

I read an article today about minorities and the outdoors. It said that only 1-in-5 people who visit the National Parks are minorities. What's /out/'s thoughts on the lack of minorities engaging in camping, hiking, or just visiting the Parks? Any suggestions on how to increase interest and participation? Here is the link to the article. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/06/us/national-parks-try-to-appeal-to-minorities.html?hp&_r=1&

I'm curious, I'm going to San Gorgonio, and I know it's legal to possess firearms, my question however is whether it's legal to fire them. I know you cannot discharge firearms near the family campground, but what about anywhere else?
