Post your your most recent or worst /out/ related injury
>by campfire waiting for food to warm up >decide I should try to make my own spoon for once >grab a piece of firewood and start whittling away >lose grip of wood probably because it's so cold and my hands arent working >slice right through the tip of my finger and piece of my fingernail >hurts and bleeds like a motherfucker >luckly didn't require stitches
This was the other one after a few days. Fully healed now just as I put another hole in my hand
Sliced through my thumb with my silkie saw at work and cut down to the bone, just missing the nail bed. Needed over twenty stitches and I still get pins and needles whenever I put pressure on the thumb.
Silkies need a blood sacrifice.
This was from a silky. Had it for about a year without incident but I'm inclined to agree
damn girls Ive had bigger cuts on my eye ball
get cuts like that weekly framing houses
Ikr, I work in a warehouse at the back of a big ass store and I get cut worse than this at least once a week.
Hello /out/ due to the fact I'm a total failure at everything I do I have 1 month to get ready for what is going to be probably the hardest and longest bout of homelessness yet.
I've slept rough many times, but always eventually managed to access some sort of temporary accommodation, especially in the winter months. Now, for many reasons that's not an option anymore. So, I ask the masters of travelling and the /out/doors, how the fuck do I not freeze to death out there? I have a full set of cold weather work clothes and a big down coat, but that's the best I got for clothes. >TLDR need any and all help, advice and tips for winter homelessness.
Not really although you might catch a night a two for free there as well in some villages.
It's another way to get acco for anyone who travels with no money. Yes, they've paid me a hotel in 3 or 4 towns, such a s st claude, alencon and vittel. In other place I stayed for 2 weeks in a litle flat all by myself. You need to know how. But the info is 10 years old, with the new french president fuck knows, but we all know that french are slow to change.
Sliding from what? This entire board is a giant dlide thread.
You can't know how unless someone tells you. It's not like OP is gonna go to France on a vague idea of "knowing how".
Can't share it, I don't need competition since I might very well end up there again.
I gave OP the chance to ask before.
Been a while since we've had a thread like this. Post your pics of birds and other animals you've seen while outdoors! Since my interest is birding, I've got plenty of pics of birds, but I've also seen coyotes, bobcats, deer, and other small mammals (chipmunks, squirrels, river otters, etc.) So post your pics and stories related to wildlife encounters here. Also post here for ID help and photography tips etc.
Pic related, American Kestrel I saw recently.
i see plenty, but my iphone sucks at zooms, obviously, so I don't have many good pics
Looks like freedom.
Favorite bird moment is when a haron flies overhead making that call that sounds and feels like a straight dinosaur. Even though it ruins the fishing for a few hours it's still with it.
Other than that bald eagles will next in the haron nests when they are migrating and it's a trip to see them gliding overhead at distances usually reserved for cargo planes.
Mama bear I saw hiking Mt. Princeton.
I like that too, they even look like a pterodactyl flying over head. I like the Kaka birds, they make a horrendous dinosaur call whilst flying over head, spectacular.
Earthquakes all over the US at simultaneous this morning.
Does /out/ have their bug in/bug out bag and plan ready?
Let's hear it.
If you carry only one fixed blade on a several day outing, what would it be?
If you carried two fixed blades, what would they be? I am mostly interested in style of blade, but the manufacturer is also of interest. There was a pretty good thread a while back, I kept some of the pics.
Not as good for wood work.
Mora's are great. I really want to pick up the craftline chisel, as every other mora is +3.5 inches which is the carry limit in my state. The craftline u posted is 3.6... Such a bummer.
They make that same handle and a thinner one with the non rounded blade. Also in high carbon steel rather than stainless.
>>1439384 >implying it would actually get you in trouble if you were using it in an outdoor activity
fixed blades are technically illegal here unless you are hunting/etc......hasn't stopped my from carrying a knife on my belt for at least a year
I just meant the design. The handle with no guard makes it easier to get up close to wood for precision work and such.
Found this in Canberra, Australia in a foresty area then I cleaned it. What kind of animal is it and can I sell it for much?
We have your dirty fucking possums here, and its pretty much kill em all. Fuckers are hard to kill though, absorb .22 like its nothing, and when youre clearing traps, there head basically needs to be paste or they dont die. Fuck those little cunts. Theyre the scapegoat for the govt to use their shitty 1080
>>1439354 > t. Angry kiwifag
What about pigs and camels?
Dad told me a story about the time he tried to remove pig with a .22
After the first round to the head it chased him up a tree, took 11 more rounds to delete porker
>.223 and up for bigguns
In the before times an injured boar was the same challenge rating as a lion for feats of courage. Don't want to be second guess if you're going to annihilate it on the first shot. .950 JDJ and above is the recommended round.
So long story short, things in my country are not going too well (ethnic tension that has been going up for years), and I would like to keep my paranoia at bay by doing something, just in any case. What books on survivalism and prepping would you recommend? I am most interested in how to keep myself fit, camouflage and the basic principles of survivalism and moving in and out of areas where civili unrest is going down.
Well that depends on what you're looking for. I'm assuming western Balkans if its a weekend trip.
The Dinaric Alps start in southern Slovenia and Istria and then continue with the Croatian coast into Bosnia, Montenegro, Albania etc. Even if Balkan is sparsely populated true "wilderness" including wildlife is usually only found in the mountains.
Google Maps tells me its 6 hours from Vienna to pic related, its the mountain range Velebit on the northern Croatian coast. Roads in Bosnia are horrible and it will take you longer, plus its pretty sketchy. Everything else is far away.
>>1437494 >plus its pretty sketchy
That's not how that works. People who leave urbanized areas during a crisis get:
>Tolled by opportunists >Shot by the rural locals >Starve innawoods
You need friends at the location you are going, and a plan to reach that place with a quickness.
After that, wherever you are going should have a 30 day supply of food for you and your buddies. One of two things will happen:
>The crisis will blow over in 30 days >The violence has escalated
If it's the first option, good for you! You have survived. If it is the second...get used to being dirty.
If shit hits the fan eurofags of /out/ should work together

Fatherless Retards General [frg]
Ask your dumb questions and they will be answered by a guy with a father First question, how do I shit outside? Drop trou and squeeze it out, out of sight of normies, cover with a rock a go
Why do neets shit on their wrist?
>>1439595 >only fathers can teach carpentry or car skills
>>1439641 >not knowing anything about it at all because there's no responsible male in his life
That's pretty terrible, anon.
What's up with the hammock/fly setup?
Considering Jack Frost is currently a full 4 inches up your lower gastrointestinal tract if you're anywhere in the northern hemisphere, what are the best winter hats/methods of keeping your head warm? I personally use a polish military surplus winter tank helmet with the ear muffs replaced with down when I'm /out/.
Start a campfire
I live on an island in Canada where it doesnt snow. Hell it was 15c here on Christmas Day.
>warm >light >packable >breathable >dries extremely fast >warm when wet >usually windproof >doesn't interfere with sunglasses >can be worn under helmets if you need your noggin protected, or over ballcaps if you need a brim >doesn't interfere with hoods
Only once in my life was I so fucking cold I wanted more than my fleece beanie, and that was still-hunting in -30F weather.
speak for yourself. it's 60° and sunny here on the best coast today.
why are grouper the tastiest fish in the USA?
Based. Is this BWCA?
>>1439555 >implying brook and lake char are the same as tasteless rainbow trouts
I've eaten native, wild-caught:
>rainbow and steelhead >brown >brook >cutthroat >lake >Dolly Varden >Arctic char >Arctic grayling
from Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, New York, Virginia, and Washington. The ONLY one that had any significant amount of flavor was steelhead, and even then it was very bland compared to actual salmon.
I fully agree that stockies are even blander. Where I live now the government stocks basically every pond and small lake with rainbows and they're not even worth trying to eat, and are dumb and aggressive enough they're really not even all that fun to fish for.
