Wildfire History

No.2172046 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Are you aware of any archaeological study of wild fire in the United States? I spoke to a forest ranger at the Angeles National Forest about the historic frequency of fire but they had no idea beyond their own written records of fire.

Every time after a big fire event a lot of mud washes down into the local riverbeds. I figure it could show some historical record of fire.

How to get over fear of wildlife when solo backpacking? Particularly black bears and moose. I'm always kept up at night inside my tent because I fear a black bear will try to come in or a moose will trample me to death.

Fuck ticks

These little cunts need to be exterminated!
I slept one night in the tent and carefully checked for ticks before going to sleep. After I left the tent once to take a leak during the night, I woke up with 7 of these fuckers! SEVEN!
How do I deal with these disease carrying abominations?

Wilderness First Responders

No.2169846 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Is anyone in here a wilderness first responder? I signed up for a 5 day course in WA at the end of the month and am almost done with study guide and exam. Just want to know what to expect in those 5 days and what kind of job I can get after? We've been getting so many forest fires on the west coast and I hate them so much, I want to at least be able to help the people in them if I can.

Dealing with homeless drug addict campers

No.2163667 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
I live in rural Bongland and one of my favourite woodland spots has become occupied by some dubious meth addicts in a tent. It is in a clearing that is very hard to find and I resent losing this spot. They have been there for months and show no sign of leaving. I have scouted them from a distance and see them just smoking meth and throwing cans of beer around. How can I fuck them up without endangering myself or committing a serious crime? Burning their tent or shooting at it with an air gun is out of the question.

I'm interested in learning how to grow and farm my own food for me and my wife. We have a two acre plot of land, which I am aware is not big enough to grow for a year's worth of food traditionally, but I am curious if I could devote a good bit of it to aquaponics/hydroponics/aquaculture and use the land more efficiently. I'm under the impression also that chicken, pekin duck, and guinea pig are easy or relatively easy meat sources, so long as I learn how to do it and put in the time necessary. I'm not planning on starting soon, either, so I want to know if there are any pieces of advice or big issues with what I'm discussing right here that I, as a beginner, wouldn't see.
