Hey, Im from Uruguay and Im planning to take a work and holiday trip for a year. What would be my best option if I wanna work as a graphic designer/ Illustrator? Im 25
Graphic designer is a shitty job to take on the road... there i plenty of unemployed graphic designers/illustrators everywhere in the world. So you get hired almost purely on your contacts, and building up contacts every new place you go can be difficult/impossible. Unless you're a really cool outgoing partyguy who can join the incrowd of any city... i would something online if i were you, take your existing job with you
Can I use store bought lump charcoal to make handmade water filters? Do they usually treat it with chemicals that would seep into the water? I know how to make my own charcoal but I was considering this for a bug in situation.
Heya /out. I'm thinking of taking a vacation. I'd like to go alone into deep woods and just survive for at least 2 months. I'd bring food to start me off. I have all the equipment that I would need including water filtration, gun, bow, saw, axe etc.. I'm thinking northern maine since I live in massachusetts. I'm basically wondering, is there still wilderness remote and deep enough in maine to hunt, trap, and build shelter without paying any attention to laws?
I love the outdoors and I've always wanted to just do this. Would I run into trouble? What do you think the biggest challenges would be?
Also I was wondering specifically, how big is the threat of wild animals? I mean if I have a shelter on the ground whats to stop a bear attacking in my sleep? I intend to do this alone far away from any kind of help.
Thanks for any insight guys. I know how this sounds, but I'm serious, capable and I want this.
Keep your food (and everything that smells, such as toothpaste) somewhere they can't get it while you sleep. Unless your bears are starved and crazy like Kamchatka bears, you'll be fine.
is iceland the ultimate /out/-country?
jokes aside, I lately had a very fun 10-day hike in the south of iceland. Gorgeous country.
i sometimes met a lot of other tourists, sometimes no one all day.
what do you think about icland?
have other anons done some hiking there?
we exclusively slept at campgrounds, because we were unsure about camping in national parks. where did you camp?
I'm also going to post my packing list, because i have some questions on it
so this is what I took on my trip (10 days). My pack had 17 kg (37.5 lbs) with 2.5 litres of water and it was really heavy for me, because I'm pretty skinny (56 kg / 123.5 lbs)
how can I reduce weight some more?
how the hell am I supposed to go more than 20+ days when I have to carry all the food?
I'm planning on doing the grande traversata delle alpi next year - which is 2 months - and I still don't really know what I should do about the water and food. I know I can buy it along the way, but if I have to carry water and food for, lets say 3 - 4 day it's at least 6 kg / 13 lbs. My back will explode.
Drop the thermos, two of the shorts and at least one of the shirts. Swap the alcohol stove for gas or carry less fuel. Exchange the hoodie for a lightweight down or fleece. Is your sleeping bag one of those 2kg carinthia monstrosities? How much does your tent weigh?
Get a water filter and a map with marked water places. Plan your food resupplies carefully.
Gain some weight.
i realize i packed too much clothing
can't drop the fuel if i want to do longer hikes
my sleepingbag is 1.2 kg
tent is 1.4 kg
i am slowly gaining weight, but it takes a lot of time
how can i drop the thermos? what about the cold?
am i missing something? do all of you run around with 17+ kg packs?
>Live in Puerto Rico.
>Need to make a bug out bag in case this turns out to be Katrina 2.0.
Is this an actual happening or media's hype?
I assume strong winds can't melt concrete homes.
After my last week's fiasco in which I got lost and failed to achieve my planned goals I decided it's something I need to have for next summer. I don't hike in winter so I don't need anything for -30 degrees. I don't care about a camera or wifi or whatever other than what a GPS is supposed to have.
Do you use one? What would you recommend?
how dumb are you? be honest.
if you can't use a paper map and compass even a little bit, you should probably travel with a friend.
otherwise a used etrex or geko for $20 is a fine companion to a paper map and compass, and it can share batteries with your headtorch.
Anyone watching La Vuelta? Northern Spain looks great for /out/ing, just confirming that Spain is likely the best /out/ European country.
Anyone have any good overnighters to do in Cape-Breton? I'm getting tired of day hiking.
How does /out/ feel about the Canada Goose clothing brand? Is it better than Patagucci?
What do you guys know about Southern Brazil /out/ing?
