What's a great edible thing that is common outdoors that people almost never eat and are totally missing out on?

By far and away, wood sorrel. Abundant in literally everyone's lawn, good source of vitamin c. Delicious all year round, like lemon-juice soaked leaves. Oxalates can be a problem if you consume literally no calcium but otherwise not a problem (and spinach contains more by weight, so…)

Red clover makes a delicious tea when boiled and you can consume its nectar by plucking the fine 'petals' and suckling at the base.



Another great one I've tried out this year is garlic mustard. I have some difficulty telling these plants apart, so garlic mustard is a wonderful choice for me because of distinctive appearance: tall, slender plants with tiny 4-leaved white flowers and heart-shaped leaves. They taste great! Besides, it's an invasive species in North America, so there's no guilt eating to your heart's content! They are becoming as common as dandelions in unmowed grass around my area, leading me to first notice the plant and identify it earlier this month.

>you can eat the whole dandelion

holy shit guess I'll try doing that tomorrow night.



Not a bad choice, it tastes like lemonade from experience. Just make sure not to eat whole salads of it since the oxalic acid will form crystals in your kydneys.

Cheap £15 Whitby rescue knife is my edc knife mainly used at work but accompanies me everywhere. I keep a mora companion HD in my backpack but it pretty much stays there as the Whitby is closer/easier to access.

I pretty much only use a custom I got made about a year back. It's a 16 year old kid from NY who forges some really nice stuff. Knife is basically a copy of the woodlore knife, only not kike priced and wait listed. Linen micarta handle and hand forged laminated blade of O1 tool steel and 1060 carbon. Got it made custom for $120.

why do so many americans on 4chans /out/ feel the need to carry a gun when hiking or going into the woods? I'm not one of those antigun fags but if you're scared in the woods without a gun you're a giant pussy

I'm going to make the assumption OP is some granola crunching hippie vegan with twig arms who thinks bears and wolves are fluffy cute pets, since he's such a faggot.

Okay mr. rothsberg.



Someday I will visit. Grandparents from there, almost met a distant relative once as a child.

I carry a 380, but have been advised that 9mm is the minimum. Better than nothing!

So what do you think about this conspiracy theory/modern american mystery?


In case you don't know the long and short of it is an ex cop tracking cold cases for a book he is writing about runaways or something starts to notice any missing people in certain areas are strange in a ironically uniform way. He checks for commonly occurring factors across these cases and the same thing always pops up: every one went missing in a national park.

He starts to shift focus onto these cases and notices an extraordinary amount of people go missing in US national parks every year. The more he digs the stranger it gets. Cases where the circumstances are mysterious bordering on the paranormal, downs syndrome children being found a day later dead 3 mountains away from their campsite in deep woods, a man found disemboweled 20ft up in a tree, a 90 year old man in the middle of a crowd vanished on a track with no brush around it and his lower torso was found next to his clothes with the socks in the shoes and socks over trousers like they melted off him and so on.

Then he starts to realise the shocking part: not only do the parks know they seem to be covering it up.

Some try to contact him and later lose their jobs, others show up at his hotels on visits to parks to tell him to stop digging and any calls to officials to use the freedom of information act for case files is met with a 'thats not going to happen' but only for case files about disappearances IN the parks.

Some say its bigfoot, some say its drug grow ops in these massive parks run by gangs the government doesnt want people to know are turning the parks into the worlds druglab breadbasket and crazier shit like aliens or cults of innawoods serial killers.

Regardless of the cause the objective fact is that the sheer number of cases in such a specific area are grossly unusual and suggest something unique is going on on a level that either the US government cannot control or wPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

ooking to add fulfillment to your dull dull life?

Then head on over to this place


and help us create the next best thing.

Background: began like most of the other ventures on /k/ and /pol/. Thread was started, looking for other people who want to get away from (((society))) and form a community in the woods of Alaska. So far we have 4-5 dedicated members and are looking for a total of about 10.

We are generally looking to move onto the property in early 2020, but 2019 might be possible if we get the ball rolling and you want to live in a tent with no supplies

The honeypot will explain more. Please bring questions, expertise, or suggestions. We know the difficulty involved and are trying to learn from the past.

Only requirements are that you are a white male (world wide European/euro diaspora), want out of society, and can dedicate labor and funding to the venture when we get to that point

P.S: If you have a suggestion for more secure communications, we are all ears


That link is dead. Typo?




Yea I’ll pass


>trying to start a self-sufficient innawoods society with 10 /pol/acks

My money is on this crashing and burning if it even happens at all.



They will realize they love the jew world real fast


Pol is filled with literal and figurative retards who are actively working toward the collapse, and K plots daily on how to kill as many people (especially other streloks) post collapse as they can. Asking them to fuck off with you to Alaska to freeze to death in the first snow is a bad plan

Yurt thread?

The walls are made of thick felted horsehair "blankets" wrapped around the wooden frame, covered with a protective cloth outer.

There is a brazier or metal stove inside for cooking and heat.

Yurts should be pretty toasty.



Those little horse crystals would have to be removed. They sting awfully.

There's a place in Quebec that imports yurts from Mongolia. Seems like really cheap and good housing if you don't mind not necessarily having utilities. The one on the right here only costs like $6,000.



>6 grand for some sticks and a tarp

lmao hipsters, is this tiny houses v2?



It's a pretty good deal imo considering they're fully functional as permanent housing. They also come with insulation and a needlessly fancy door which probably drives the price up a lot.

Why the fuck do the zippers on my jacket catch on the material of the pockets? It's a fucking Columbia jacket, "goretex", and they could not BOTHER to TAPE UP THE MATERIAL AROUND THE ZIPPERS on the inside of the pockets to prevent binding??!!

Also, I have an Oakley backpack for computer equipment. Now after a few months, the double zippers separate on one side so I have to zip them to one side to prevent my gear from flying out. And there are no fucking straps to clip the compartments shut, all the pressure is resting on the zippers!!

Also, why the fuck would they use "aesthetically pleasing" underdimensioned zippers when they should have used big fucking japanese YKK zippers??!!!!




>It's a fucking Columbia jacket

>I have an Oakley backpack

Unfortunately, established companies have now realized that they can cannibalize their brand value by pushing cheap crap on the market. Just because you paid a premium for it doesn't mean it wasn't thrown together haphazardly by a half-blind Bengali amputee for $0.02/hour.

Daily reminder than any backpack bigger than 30L automatically turns you into a woman

currently planning to do some backpacking and camping, 2-3 week trips at a time ideally. would be moderate winters (flagstaff, AZ). was looking at a few 50L packs, but i have no idea which brands are actually quality for a good price and which are chink-tier. any suggestions?

i saw a bunch of folks recommending shit like the Kelty Redwing 50 or similar shit from that brand, but it's a bit pricey and due to my limited experience with good packs i've got no idea how many of the reviews were legit and how many were just shills.


if you're lifting then you shouldn't have a fucking backpack on at all. that's asking to get caught. either rig a catchall inside your pants to drop shit into, or just stuff it between your pant's beltline and your body so it doesn't fall down.


File: ebdd5a1c841b37a⋯.jpg (28.81 KB, 500x500, 1:1, pack.jpg)


~3 week trips without being able to restock on food, you're probably gonna want something larger than 50l, considering winter clothes/sleeping bag/tent/water are gonna take up like 3/5th that pack easy. i'd just cruise ebay for a 70l frame pack and worry less, it'll be worth the comfort than these ultralight weenie packs with random shit strapped all over.

i got this pack for the AT where i can restock every other week, asides from having to reinforce some points with stitches it's been nice, i like the low key look that doesn't make me stick out too much in town. it's about 45L, no frame but i just use my cardboard sleeping mat to reinforce the back. clothes + 40* sleeping bag + tarp take up about half the pack. i also keep a drawstring knapsack i can tie on top of it or hang off my chest, in case i need to carry more food/water. pretty comfy overall, just keep a sewing kit handy cuz it is a no name bag.

If it doesn't fit in 30 liters backpack, you don't need it. It's gonna just weigh you down and stop you from wanting to go a little further or climb sth.

>>143 What a faggot, you only need a sleeping bag with a shoe string tied around it as a sling for your shoulder, if it's summer anyways. How much you pay for that capitalist shit you fucking yuppie?

Mine was 11 weeks in the high desert. I used primitive fire-making techniques (bow drill: sage spindles, juniper root board + hand drill: yucca spindle, sage board). I slept under a tarp, and spent most of my time woodcarving. I brought food and water in via truck. It was very comfy.

We did some hikes around the desert and up the surrounding peaks, but obviously couldn't pack all of our food and water around so hiking was limited.

Pic related is from google but is more or less what the terrain looked liked.


3 years homeless, lived outta one of those swiss rubberized packs, the straps sucked so i duct taped jansport straps under the orig ones. Housed up for 6 mos. 2 more years homeless, lived outta large ALICE.
