Hopefully fixed an issue with the search server going down and additionally an issue with error 500 pages. Additional announcements still upcoming. Threads by latest replies - Page 15
I know some would believe this thread would fit more on /x/ but /x/ never leaves their basement so I would like to ask you anons for your weirder stories. Everything from a hobo jacking off to paranormal shit goes
>camping in Algonquin interior >Hear some rustling. Some human kind of sounds. Like regular paced walking through the brush. >Twig snaps right by tent. I freeze to listen. Heavy snap with weight to it >Nothing. Not a single noise for 10 minutes >Grab my knife and flashlight. Unzip tent so I can get my shoes on >Quickly unzip the rest of the way and Flash light around >Nothing. Nothing at all. Slight rain. >Hear a single yell for help across the lake and then nothing again. >Shine light to look at water. Nothing there >Next morning check again. Lake is empty. No one else around.
hence why I prefaced it by saying "Sounds kinda stupid typed out" i am very much aware that it sounds like a shitty creepypasta, and I hope it was just the the woods messing with my early teen brain. Me and my mom have tried to come up with explanations for what it was that I saw, but nothing in that part of GA comes close. idk man, most spooks I've had while /out have just been normal shit like hearing a fox scream and not knowing that they sounds like women being killed. That's why this story stands out to me.
>>2288677 >be in tent >sleep >wake up >hear grumbles and moans >right above my tent >stay still >another guy unzips his tent >ayo who the fuck is- >its a bear >he fucks of back into the tent >night passes >still alive
It was a real close call. Moral of the story? Sometimes its better not to follow sounds
Not exactly spooky, but I once walked into three black kids fucking a rotisserie chicken.
Apparently it's a black thing.
>On my way down black mountain after morning hike >Asian QT and her boyfriend/husband/friend coming the other way >Move off the trail because I'm not an asshole and follow proper hiking etiquette >Asian starts to raise her arm >Figure she is waving >Wave my arm >She wasn't waving at all >Stuck her finger right into her nose >Boyfriend/husband/friend says good afternoon >It was 10am >He had a thick German accent
So i'm thinking about buying new boots since summers starts to get way hot for my meindls
i need recommendations for a boot thats comfortable in 30 degrees celsius i have been looking at some desert army boots but they seem kinda warm still
>>2284143 >not weighing like a brick
If only. How much is too much for you?
I ended up with a KEEN Pyrenees.
My other options were
>goretex Merrell Moab 3 >goretex Salomon X Ultra 4
I guess this checks out everything except for the breathability part which is impossible to find here because for some reason every shoe seems to have either goretex or some sort of proprietary membrane.
On the bright side, the toe box on these things are damn huge, couldn't get my toes to touch the ends even while I tried to tip toe while I was trying them out.
>>2283753 >Frogposting a thread that already exists
It's as if you faggots are trying to prove me that /out/ can still got worse than it was last winter
I have a question regarding this topic
I've always worn waterproof boots in those conditions, which works. But if they do get wet you're fucked.
Wouldn't it make more sense to hike in mesh boots/hiking shoes that dry much faster? Or will your feet still rot?
I've done walks in the Forest of Bowland and the Peak District in some running shoes in the past
nothing too crazy, but I'm going to the Lake District with some people for work and we'll be doing Helvellyn as our first outing I've looked at these and the reviews seem good, but I don't know if they're suitable for what I want to do
i like the homeless posts and running away larps
I don't post on this board. Thanks for the free thoughts and ideas, fuckos
i like shitposting
like the literal shit posts and piss pit threads
In the back of my head I think most of the threads on /out/ are larps.
So I treat them as such.
I HATE SODOMITES
until you’re /out/ with your homies and tyrone asks if you’re feeling lonely
(originally wanted to post this on /pol/ but instead of going on a rant I thought maybe you guys are more chill and have actual advice)
how am i supposed to do that? I'm in the middle of europe, almost all forests here are either privately owned, owned by governments or are nature reserves. You're not allowed to camp on somebody elses forest and you arent allowed to build a house in your own forest even if you own the land. To leave society behind you'd have to move to Siberia or Alaska to be left completely alone I guess and even then you still need all kinds of papers to do anything. I just want to return to monkey and leave this clown world for good but it seems near impossible to do so.
Why do redditors bump dead threads
I am so close to illegally settling on a strip of land in the middle of Bosnia and digging out a hobbit hole. With the water reserves we have, I'd be really unlucky to not hit a spring, meaning I'll most likely also have running water
Go ahead and make your own and start poasting it broski. Any trolls or time-wasters will drop off quickly, and the glowies are going to be too busy with the /pol/ Siegeposters to care. Go ahead!
I like the idea of living in the woods and going Uncle Ted mode but realistically we need genuine communities to do this sort of thing.
>>2269478 >In Norway it is 100% legal to full monkey innawoods indefinitely
wdym by full monkey? I live here and the country is not sparsely populated in the south. You can still get in trouble if you're doing some shit like trying to build a house on someone's property because everything is owned. In that sense its not really different from other western countries.
I'm not sure what you're gonna accomplish by camping in the woods here, it would be way easier in a warmer country and you could probably find less tourists elsewhere. Like the example here
What is the appropriate way to react when someone’s unleashed dog approaches you on the trail? I really hate it when dog owners say “Oh don’t worry about it, he’s friendly”. What that means to me is, “Too bad, I can’t be bothered to control my animal around other people”. I haven’t had any run in with aggressive dogs yet but you never know with random dogs coming towards you.
>>2284538 >following rules that benefit my community is inconvenient for me >furthermore, not abiding by those rules increases my enjoyment of being in public spaces >therefore I ignore the rules hehe :D
before you bring it up, I am very fun at parties
if the trail is clearly labeled as off-leash friendly, there's nothing you can do but be a little bitch and continue posting threads about your little bitch problems. otherwise, sure you could say something to them, but won't because you're a little bitch. you're probably the fag i ran into at chuckanut.
>>2289379 >I'm going to make up my own reality and get mad like a little bitch about the lie I just told.
Dogtard ladies and gentlemen.
Dogs used to irritate me with that kind of behavior, but all things considered it's not a big deal. Don't sweat the small stuff. Not once has a dog ruined my clothes or hurt me that way (not tempting fate here..) so far and only one owner in my entire life wasn't entirely apologetic and nice, so whatever.
And frankly, I think it's nice that someone's dog thinks I'm cool enough to give affection to or to play with.
I mean, the dog could be growling at you or worse.

Keep it on a leash where required, why is this so hard to comprehend?

imagine not bringing a fucking map and not noticing for 120 days that your energy intake is a meme, then dying 20 miles from the highway you came from
>>2289206 >dying 20 miles from the highway you came from
Was this explained?
He was probably delirious
Just got a new opinel carbon steel, and it came covered in some kind of oil, and was wondering if anyone knows what kind of oil it is? Is it food safe?
this is a bait thread
everyone below this post took the bait
Most likely not, but just wipe it off and then you'll be fine. I myself have been wondering about customising opinels. Has anyone here done it?
Wash it in paint thinner, put it on top of a heater for a week or bake it, then soak it in flax oil for a week to impregnate the wood and prevent it from absorbing moisture and swelling.
Why did my transpiration bag yield so little water
How will I survive It was up there for like a week
>>2289550 >arid location has less condensation
Those shits are like small game snares and fish traps. If you want to actually sustain yourself you'll need like a million of them scattered around.
You put it on a pine--coniferous trees transpire waaay less water than deciduous trees. That's why you see piñon pine and bristlecone pine in the desert, but no oaks. Like the other anon said, you'd need a bunch of them to even dream of supporting yourself.
picrel was my captcha kek
i will never understand why any person would ever go anywhere without abundant freshwater
Most packs and gear is sized for menfolk and halflings. What do you recommend to fit an elf?
I'm a big guy and I use a hipbeltless pack, 10ft long tarp, torso length pad, quilt is a UGQ bandit xl long.
I also have a GG Silverback 55 XL that fits well but it's heavy, good starter pack though.
>>2286594 >Strap up, we're going hiking. >Yes, honey...
While we're talking about LotR/medieval style gear, what is Aragorn carrying? Besides the weapons obviously, and the wool cloak. Looks like some kind of oilcloth sack or something at this angle but iunno I never got a close-up of it. I always assumed he could go that light because he was a hardcore woodsman, unless he is actually forcing the hobbits to carry all his camping gear. How little could a peak survivalist human carry into the wilderness and survive on?
Bedroll i believe
This probably belongs on /x/, but those guys are wierdos. Does /out/ think there is some underlying/ subconscious spiritual aspect to trees? When I'm out and about and I see a random tree in the middle of a corn field or whatever I always wonder why it was left there. Looking at the tree I am filled with I don't know how to articulate it but a great sense that that particular tree belongs as some sort of higher purpose or order. An overseer to that place. I wonder if the farmer felt the same way as it would be a pain to plant and harvest around it. Maybe im just too autistic but I dont fell that way about all trees.
i never claimed that trees can't thrive living on their own, i just said that wood coming from these trees is of low quality.
I like trees better than I like most people.
The wood was already "high quality" when the farmer found the tree.
They didn't plant a sapling to grow there by itself. They cut down a forest for a field and left a massive oak standing for later use.
A lot of times, when you see a random tree in a field on a farm(especially old trees), it's usually because there was a building fence or structure in that spot at some point. People clearing the land would only leave a tree if it served a purpose to shade or it would be too much work to cut down and haul off.
Leaving a shade trees here and there along fields so people had a place to take breaks from the sun during the day was a pretty common thing on old farms/plantations.
Once when I took a heavy dose of mescaline on a Boy Scouts trip I had a vision (not literally more like a conscious narration in my mind) that when you're buried in the ground your corpse decomposes into the earth and all plants are just the totality of every living thing that has ever existed and that there's some sort of global natural consciousness that exists beyond our comprehension as living humans. It sounds pretty stupid when I'm not high but I still refuse to be cremated.
