How much should I spend on a canoe?
The trails im looking at have portages around 2 kms, me and my friend are pretty fit and we're on a budget so a little weight isn't a big deal

Long term insecticide treating of outdoor clothing

No.1520053 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I'm treating my clothes with permethrin to kill all the ticks and mosquitos. All the sources I found say that diy-applied permethrin (with sprays or soaking) lasts 6 washings or 6 weeks. But they also mention that professionally treated clothing, like Insect Shield stuff, lasts 70 washes. How the hell do they do this? And how can I do it in my garage without paying them 10 bucks per sock?

It’s not a meme boys. 2 weeks in and this watch is perfect, wear it in the shower, at the pool, at work. It wakes me up in the morning with its alarm beeps. Did nato strap it though, I find them comfy.

What does /out/ think of Missing 411?

I think the whole bigfoot spin is ridiculous. But the concept of wild men living in national parks and abducting people seems very plausible

Hello backpackers, do you use solid shampoos? I have long thick hair and i use solid shampoo and conditioner, along with a normal soap bar for body. while no producing plastic waste they last very long and they take very little space when traveling. It's off topic but I also suggest every femanon to switch to menstrual cups, it's life changing both home and in outdoors instead of those disgusting pads and tampoons.
But HERE IS MY QUESTION: I use lush tins to store my soap, but they got bit damaged by the obvious contact with water. How do you prevent/repair your tins from rust damages? This actually extends to many tin uses when outdoors

German /out/ shelter

Also deutsche Wälder sind so klein man kann sie kaum als /out/ beschreiben. So gibt es trotzdem einige unter uns, die /out/ings lieben. Der Sinn dieses Fadens ist es, leute gleicher interessen zusammen zu bringen.

Ich komm aus München (Bayern, duh) und geh gern Fischen und Campen.

Just had an encounter with a black bear, what do?

So I was walking in the woods along a clearcut trail, and saw blue jeans a few meters off to my left in the brush. I inspected them and noticed a small tear but no blood, and decided to investigate further into the woods to see if anything else was there.

After a few minutes, I reached a glade and decided to stop. A few seconds later I began to hear noises of a large animal moving through brush, and decided to stay still to figure out what it was. I made visual contact at approximately 20 feet away, and thought I saw a human and therefore hunkered down. Peeping out again, I realized I was looking at a large black bear. I let it pass so as not to surprise the animal, and then when I deemed it sufficiently out of range started to yell and beat trees with my staff. Unfortunately, this just brought the bear back and a standoff ensued. Yelling and banging would not drive the bear away, and in fact my staff started to break from the effort. The bear made several small steps towards me, but stopped in the face of my noisemaking. While I did have bear spray, it was old and I did not want to be in a situation where I might use it. Therefore, I crossed back towards the path I'd taken out while yelling to the bear and made my way home.

How well did I handle that, guys? Should I call this one in as a predacious bear?
