Probably not on the second slowest board on 4chan.

Could work though. I found two fishin buddies here and have yet to abduct and rape any of them. But one is too old and the other is a girl so not really my cup of tea.

hi /out/. Im new to this board so dont kill me if this gets asked often.
As far as I understand its not legal to just go camping into the woods, make a fire and live there for a couple of days. You have to have a permission from the land owner, right?
But still, are there any places (ideally in Europe) where you could get away with such thing easily? or places where nobody really gives a fuck?
Or maybe there are forests wild and large enough that there is actually little to no chance of being found?

Yes, America.
I know in the states we can do this on most national forests and BLM land. We call it dispersed camping.

Not sure about Europe though. Maybe try looking up camping on crown land, or "freedom to roam". I think I might have read something about that.

You should really contact whoever manages the land in your area though and bounce these questions off of them.
I also should add that a lot of places may restrict your fire, and wood usage. So make sure you can get a list of dos and don't in case you end up on the wrong side of the law.

You could also try stealth camping illegally.

Anyone in /out/ work in natural resource management or forestry? I'm trying to get out of the medical field as a lab slave. I have GIS experience and statistics experience in addition to a Biology background. I'm picking up various books to get me started, but for anyone that works in these areas, what are the most important things I should learn? Are there any decent free resources online?

Wildland firefighter. They love people with medical experience

Taking a forest fire control class at my university. How hard is it to get hired as a wildland firefighter in CA?
It is pretty competitive, start calling random crews now, it might take a year or two before you even get anything but definitely worth it


That thread has some pretty good info. But yeah look into the BLM, NPS, local crews, etc. Go all over. You need to talk to people before you'll get a job though, if they never heard of you they probably won't hire you.

I fell of a bike in forest and got badly bruised, lower backside of the ribcage. Went to the doctor, nothing is broken, but it hurts like hell. It hurts when there is a slightest tension on the muscle, when I touch it and when I sneeze or cough.

What are your experiences with injuries? How long do you take to recover? How can one make the recovering process easier?

Oh man OP, I'm sorry to hear that. Glad you saw the doc at least so you know your insides are ok. Hope you're feeling better soon!

As for me, I was playing in the woods with my brother when I was like 8 and her swung a branch at my face and it popped my eye out of the socket. I screamed in pain and he screamd in horror and I pushed it back in. My eye was scabby for days but I never even saw a doctor, my parents couldn't decide if they believed us or not.

Thankfully I've never been too badly injured, but when I was around 16 I was once descending a section of trail in the hills around the place I grew up in. I was a few hours out, alone and it was starting to get dark. I had stayed out too long but figured I could get home in time. It had been raining a lot recently, and a stone I stepped on slipped out from under me and I fell and twisted my ankle extremely badly underneath my full body weight. Within half an hour it was badly bruised. The sun went down and a thunderstorm came in. I didn't have a raincoat or a torch...

that shit sux. fallen off my bike many of times too. I've broken my ribs twice, and didn't go to the Dr. the second time because there's not much they can do (basically "here's some ibuprofen, don't re-injure yourself, avoid strenuous activities the next few weeks"). It's possible they didn't get a good x-ray or just didn't see a break despite there being one. Just take it easy and heal up quick anon.

Any bikers here?
I'm planning to cross the Alps next summer, then heading towards tuscany. One thing I'm not sure about yet is: How are the italians behaving against bikers? Similar aggressive as towards other car-drivers? Then: Would it be better to cross the tuscany on a MTB offroading, maybe camping, if it is possible in Italy) or is roadbiking better? Best time to visit the area?

first question Italians are dicks usually no matter what so expect that. second question idk
are they worse than the french?
I'm french, i don't like italians, they're obnoxious, flashy,vulgar and loud. We're way more respectful and nice than them. Tuscany is GOAT though, great food, great landscapes, great history, great art, great culture, great architecture, nice women.

I'm looking for some tips in general and on gear for a first time backpacking trip.
I have no gear whatsoever now. I'm planning on going to the pyrenees in april and south canada in summer.

This is what I've been looking at so far, I try to make it as cheap and light as possible, while making sure the gear is durable enough to survive the trip:

Karrimor Xilite Self inflating mat (+- 600 gr, 20 euros)
Karrimor Superlight 1 sleeping bag( +- 850 gr, emp range: 12"C to -8"C , 20 euros)

Something tells me they don't hang out in remote mountain huts in Andorra.
I'd say it's perfectly safe, but leave a note explaining that you're returning for it. Sometimes people leave gear free for the taking at huts, and someone might be stupid enough to think your stuff is up for grabs.
You going to Andorra? Awesome, where exactly? All the huts I saw there were beautiful on the outside, shitholes on the inside.

Was just stopping here on some advice on how to break into archery/bow hunting. I've been interested in this for a long time and finally have the time to do it. Any advice on where I should start?
19 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Buy a bow, and prcatice with it at least one year before hunting.
Also, a good tip is going to the gym, bench press and military press will help you being accurate
Practice a lot before taking it /out/ because you'll hit jack shit otherwise.

Hey /out/,

I wanted to pick up traditional archery as a hobby and hopefully move on to bowhunting once I get good.
I've tried out a 45 lbs. recurve bow a couple of times and have been able to shoot with it but it feels a little bit too heavy for me still right now...
So I found a cheap PSE snake bow online but it maxes out at around 22 lbs.

So my question is, if I start practicing with a 22 lb rated bow will the muscles used in archery still develop?
22 lbs seems very light like I won't see any muscle development or strength build from using...

OP here,

This is the bow I am referring to:


Will this draw weight help me develop muscle strength to eventually pull 45 lbs comfortably?

If anyone has experience with this it would be greatly appreciated.
For a basic beginner bow, it should be pretty good. Anywhere in the 20-30 lbs range is pretty good for a beginner bow, and it will build up that muscle, especially if you practice often. I'd also recommend getting some surgical tubing and tying a knot into it, use it to practice your form. Practice it when you're waiting for something.
>source: I used to be a basic archery instructor with my grandmother

Speaking of, have you got someone to teach you?

I liked mountain house beef stroganoff, lasagna, and the breakfast skillet (though that one is a bit of a mushy messs, still tasted good). I tried mountain house chili mac as well but the beans didn't rehydrate very well. I haven't tried the other brands.
Heather's Choice.

Not cheap but easily the best I have eaten.

That's a plant alright.
You need some background understanding of botany terms and a good field guide, possibly a small field microscope, and a ruler to really identify plants. Its the same way you identify insects in the field.

I'm not sure if this is relevant to the board but I've browsed here a long time (mostly lurking for tips / guides) and I finally have something to post in return.

Last year I bought pic related, a church building on an island in hebrides (aka West Scotland) and in late January 2017 I'll be moving there to live full-time. I've spent time and money renovating it and preparing it in the hope of becoming at least somewhat self-sufficient eventually.

Nice. How you gonna generate money for the stuff you're not (yet) self-sufficient in?
I have lived a monk-like lifestyle since graduating and working full-time at 21. The property was cheap since it's not designed for living in and has no heating / running water etc, so I had enough money left over to buy solar panels and so on. My uncle has a ton of tools since he's a carpenter and he travelled up there with me on two occasions since he thought it was a fun thing to do.

>gas station sandwiches

take a bible so you can beg for forgiveness for when those things rip through your ass

in all seriousness a fuck ton of water, more than you think. Rice cakes, energy bar, nuts are good
Just get Cliff bars,Trail Mix, or dry food like rice and beans. I mean, don't get me wrong, I've had some great gas station food here and there but there's not point to intentionally giving yourself diarrhea while camping.

Also yes, bring a lot of water. Don't bring Gatorade or sugary drinks.
