If you had 100k what would you buy?
Must be /out/ related, let's see who can make the best out of 100k. For me it's simple, -I buy and fix up an old RV(15k estimate) -Get a great stock of hunting and fishing gear(5k estimate) -A boat capable of living in(25k estimate) -An acre with a garage to house machines and belongings(25k estimate) -Exotic animals(10k estimate) -Heavy machinery(20k estimate) That's 100k from me, how about you?
5-10 acres of prime Texas hill country land.

I would donate it to build a quad trail to the top of Mt Rushmore and park it on top of George's head!

Why fleece? It's... Affordable Durable Versatile Breathable Cozy
if a lot of people have something does it make it better for you?
Take the woolpill my man
no fleece is such a garbage material
imma stick with wool
not by itself, but nobody uses wool fleece for good reasons
You can't even get their product because they don't ship lol. Shame cause I would buy some of their stuff If I could order it.
tfw some cheap magic markers and mirror, cardboard, duct tape is all it takes to turn $.8 baseplate compass into $80
as long as you can take a bearing to go poop so you don't get lost, even a button compass will do.

lazy bait is lazy
I't's not a joke when you're riding your bike and you take a shortcut through the cemetery at night and you get confused because all the roads and paths curve back on each other and it's cloudy so you can't see Polaris and there's trees all around the perimeter so you can't see any outside landmarks and you have to ride around for 15 minutes until you find an exit.
>current year >no /out/ podcast I would unironically listen to one, there are zero good outdoor podcasts out there Bonus points if it's called Uncle Ted's Cabin
Steve Rinella's podcast is pretty based, though sometimes they bring on crazies like the guy who owns Patagonia. Though even in that episode steve calls him out a few times when he goes off on some retarded tangent. Start with ep133 if you want to give it a try that's a really fun one.
It's at the bottom of the fishing general, check it out. just look for my namefag.
I probably won't start a podcast for vanlife bullshit because that's gey as fuck. Just going to stick to uploading new fishing videos.
I am so sick of podcasts.

I can get a 1990 Landcruiser troopy, diesel (non-turbo) with 500,000kms on the clock for $4,000 AUD from a lady at work.
She said it has been religiously serviced. From the pictures she sent me, it looks good for the price. No body rust. She said the fuel pump/injectors were replaced 5 years ago too. She is selling it due to having a second one and not needing this one. This is my dream car for /out/. I am not sure whether or not I should get it? Any opinions?
Dude take this to /n/. Along with bike threads. /out/had gone to utter shit.
Jesus Christ, You're lame.

get a pre purchase inspection done but if you are set on it nothing will stop you
For better or worse I live in Holland now where gun ownership and hunting is HEAVILY regulated. There is good game here nonetheless--wild boar, deer, ducks, geese, rabbits.
I want to learn to hunt. From what I understand this will cost me thousands of dollars and will require I take a series of safety courses. On top of this each year the state sends one of their goons to any gun owners house to check on their gun storage. In spite of all this I have an interest, particularly in duck hunting, but boar and deer if possible. I want to learn to earn my meat the honest way. The problem is, it's really hard to 'enter' into the practice as I have zero experience. Just how hard is it to learn to hunt? And I mean the right way with butchering, having a retriever dog, and everything. Luckily my girlfriend is wants a lab and is fine with me training it to be a hunting dog. I don't want to larp and just daydream but it's so damn hard to get a sense of the scope of things without spending thousands of dollars and diving in.
Just do the course retard. It's not like you won't be buttfucked in nine different ways when they catch you poaching, kankermongool.
Also, have you ever tried, you know, googling stuff? I will never understand why the generation that grew up with omnipresent and always available internet is not able to fucking search stuff? If you're dutch you probably also at least understand german, there's tons of stuff on youtube from hunting schools where they talk about all important hunting topics.
Also, hunting dogs are extremly well trained by actual trainers. Labs can bring birds and stuff, but for going after deer and boar even a trained Lab isn't that good.
I eat lots of squirrels. for the legs, cut at the ball joint or shoulder blade, get 4 chicken wing sized pieces. you should have ribs, then back, then pelvis. Ribs are only useful for stock, not enough meat. The"backstrap" is between the last rib and the pelvis, you can cut it off the spine, no bones there so it's dead simple and it's the best part of the squirrel even though it's only a bite or two.
>>1639254 >If you're dutch >OP literally says "I live in Holland now" implying he moved there
I will never understand why the generation that grew up with free public education and omnipresent and always available information is not able to read a basic fucking sentence.
Shit I should not get into arguments when tired. My point still stands, though.
Do it anon no matter what the costs. It's a fun past time, it gets you out, and it gets you doing something we were built to do.
Besides weight, what could be a disadvantage? Iron sights are fine. It's been said the .30-06 cartridge was developed as an anti-cavalry round for horses. Is that true?
This should be elk competent. What military rifle for hunting? Pic related M1 Garand, M1917 both in .30-06.
>>1640614 >not using aesthetic 16th century ottoman issued .75cal matchlock
If you owned that type of gun, you wouldn't let anyone near it, let alone fire it.
Me yes, though I do know some people who are so stupid wealthy and don't view money as an object. Friend buys brand new tractor a few years ago. It begins clunking and I give it a look for him. Ask when the last time he changed his oil was. It was never, so told him get some pizza and beer and I'd run a flush on it next weekend and change the oil since I didn't have the time to do a full flush right then. He got antsy just said he'd buy another one and told me I could just have it. A $30k Kubota for free. The guy is the owner of a large housing plan contract. Pretty much 3 of 5 housing plans around the pittsburgh area are built by his company. He also gave me a $800 nikon scope after I said it was a nice scope when he was showing me pics he got after an Alaskan elk hunt and fishing trip he took. A guy like that I could imagine buying a $4k antique rifle then using it to hunt then getting bored and using it for fire wood.
I don't know how much that specific one sold for but most in worse condition and similar detailwork cost well over double that figure. I could easily see that selling for $15k-$20k.
>>1642118 >I could imagine >I could project
Anyone here had a dicey run in with animals while /out/? Such as being stalked, attacked, approached or even harassed by something?
I've had a friend's cup get swiped by a raccoon. Another time I was on a trail and walked into a lone hiker who said he stumbled upon a mama bear with cubs, ended up getting charged by the mama bear (possibly a bluff charge, being a black bear and all, but could have been real considering the cubs). Mountain lions freak me out. One could be stalking you and you'd never know it. Pic unrelated, the opossums are bro tier.
I was hunting squirrels with my dad when I was about 10 or so near an abandoned strip mine. While we were out, he decided to go a bit off the trail to check a spot for ginseng, which he often dug for extra money. I was messing around, being a kid and shit, when I got a strong urge to freeze and look down. Under my left foot was a baby copperhead. It kept trying to twist around to bite me but luckily it didn’t have enough room. We were poor and only had one gun between the two of us so I had to keep it pinned until my dad walked back up the hill and shot it.
The lesson I learned that day saved my life ten years later in the ME from getting stung by a scorpion.
I nearly got caught going down on a deer in a national park and had to abandon over $600 worth of gear
Caught by it's husband or a park ranger?
>>1636514 >I've had a friend's cup get swiped by a raccoon.
Yeah, that does sound pretty dicey. Did he dead?
Ayeup, ill chime in
I was nearly attacked by cows earlier this year. It was late summer and I went for a walk along one of my usual routes. Partway you pass through a field owned by a farmer and it regularly has cows and sheep in, no big deal. They stay out of my way and I stay out of theres.
Well this time it was a bit different
>Enter field >Follow my usual route down past the tussock bogs and around >See cow herd meandering towards me >Change route so as to give cows a wide berth >Not scared, just worked with them in the past and like to give half-ton beasts there own space >Some young ones in the herd >Some of the young ones see me >Start coming over >Something about their movements sends me to DEFCON 2 >Not the curious cow movements >Aggressive and frisky >Make a right angle turn and head up the ridge >4 cows close now snorting and tossing their heads >Lead one starts dancing side to side >ohshit.jpg >Usually this signifies a charge >Start talking calmly whilst continuing to walk away from the herd and cows >Cross the ridge, LOS broken >Instantly make a turn and speed up a bit >Heading towards some swampy pools and hawthorn bushes >And, more importantly, the closest edge >4 younglings steam over the ridge and follow me >Keep a calm pace going, keep talking in a calm voice >No panic or aggression showing >Belligerent Bovines follow me, getting very close and continuing to threaten charges >Heart is doing more BPM than an MG42 does RPM >Palms are sweaty >Somehow managing not to run or break the act >Getting close to the fence >Cows are within 15 feet the entire time >Suddenly hear a bellow >Herd streams over the ridge further down >Big angry looking one stands on the ridge and bellows again >Aggressive youngsters turn and trot back to the herd >Complete my escape
Ive worked with cows before and only once have I come as close to feeling as scared as I did then, when I was out walking and a calf wandered over to me and the mother perceived me as a threat.
What's the most comfy "cabin in the woods" state in the US?
>>1641271 >talking about things he doesn't know
kek eastcoast isn't full of a million asian tourist and there is not line for a summit. You literally don't know what you're talking about
I never said I expect to summit it in 48 hours. Lay off the drugs, it's affecting your cognitive abilities.
It's funny because I have been to the east and west coast, and I never knew there was some rivalry until I talked with west coast cucks here.
>>1641349 >Tells me to lay off the drugs because it's affecting my cognitive abilities >Meanwhile his reading comprehension is so bad he misinterprets "lower 48" into "summit it in 48 hours" >Top kek looks like someone else is the one who needs to lay off the drugs fren
This. Wv is ideal because normies don’t come here.
That's garbage compared to New England fall colors. I've lived all over the northern US and there's nothing like them. Also, cabins benefit greatly from private, forested land near lakes or large rivers, which is in short supply in the PNW. If you're going camping, then yeah, the PNW's public lands are probably better, but for a classic woods and lakes cabinland biome you want something between Minnesota and Maine.
eh dolly sods and harpers ferry attract plenty of normies
