I have a dream of finding a location where you camp, or stay in a cabin of sorts, and have access to both hiking and swimming.
But without being at a campground full of annoying people. I know its a pipe dream
Where are some great places that have access to both? Here in Alberta the lakes are quite cold (for me)
pic unrelated i guess
What is the superior choice for being homeless?
Down by the river?
Crack alley squat?
Inquiring for a friend
So I have this question and maybe some of you can give real input to it. My go to campsite has a small course of water like pic related and despite having some fish there, it's all really small specimen, is it possible or viable, to introduce?? some bigger fish types there?
1. If the stream only has small fish in it, that is likely all it will support
2. If you introduce non-native species and they survive they will negatively impact the local species and ecosystem.
What are some good podcasts about /out/ stuff?
ITT: Post wildflowers you've seen and photographed while out. Anyone else interested in these things?
Pic related, California poppies and other wildflowers are in full bloom right now throughout the state.
Damn, wish I still had my wildflower project from high school biology. I took photos and pressed ever y wildflower native to California's San Joaquin valley.
We only need to do 10, but I had a lot of fun and a few extra weeks so I kept going.
I was driving through huntsville tx yesterday and almost stopped to take a picture at the sam houston monument. There was a perfect hill covered in buttercups leading to the statue.
Heres a pic of a half burnt clearing instead.
Nice, how many total wildflowers did you catalog?
And what's the best place to check out wildflowers in the valley? Whereabouts did you find them?
These are from Antelope Valley, btw.
Adventurepunk is the aesthetic of /out/. Discuss.
So I've come here today with a question. How do I cut down a tree quickly. and quietly? I want to merc a tree in front of a school but I don't know how I should do it. I'm thinking a gas chain saw is too loud, I don't have an electric, and I know nothing about axes and handsaws. I'm just asking for some knowledge from people with tree cutting experience. Side not, it is a m/s sized tree.
Powerful chainsaw and a wedge.
If done right you can drop the tree in less than 5 and flee the scene.
Other options include gasoline to light it on fire or drilling a hole center mass and placing a home made Bangalore.
Regardless it won't be quite, focus on anonymity/escape/response time instead.
SO the college imma be attending in fall (UNF in Jacksonville) has free gear checkout from sleeping bags to hiking bags to pots to stoves and i plan on taking full advantage of it. any ideas what to do first. my mind is super restless and i cant wait. i found pic related online but that seems like car camping an i really wanna go on hikes and just be able to be in the woods without seeing normies
With those miles of hiking trails im just guessing there isn't much dispersed camping.
But hey, you are learning the real secret to success at a young age. Gaming the system; working the bureaucracy. Take full advantage of some program that no one uses. I was an army sapper for 8 years and the only thing i learned is how to work the bureaucracy.
The call that saved /out/
today i was walking in the woods near my house and came across a weird chestnut looking thing under a fallen tree. i went to tap it with my foot and as soon as i touched it it fell apart into brown dust or sand. i'm sure it's some type of spore or something. location is central ontario, canada
You think that's wierd?
I went out to the hazel wood,
Because a fire was in my head,
And cut and peeled a hazel wand,
And hooked a berry to a thread;
And when white moths were on the wing,
And moth-like stars were flickering out,
I dropped the berry in a stream
And caught a little silver trout.
When I had laid it on the floor
I went to blow the fire a-flame,
But something rustled on the floor,
And someone called me by my name:
It had become a glimmering girl
With apple blossom in her hair
Who called me by my name and ran
And faded through the brightening air.
Though I am old with wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone,
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done,
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun.
