My partner is a bit of a doomsday prepper, and doesn't really want any other kind of a life. He hates living in small city apartments, working for someone else, and driving to work. I work from home so I could work from anywhere, but I enjoy living in small city apartments and being able to do whatever errands I have on a bike or on foot.
His family has a small property in the backcountry, 16 kilometres away from the nearest populated place, which is a 1000 person village. The house desperately needs someone to inhabit it, and we could live there for free, and moving there would solve literally all of our problems. The only obstacle holding us back is the fact that I don't want to go. The thought of a life consisting of nothing but work, housework and staring at trees sounds daunting and depressing to me. I also know it's the only way *he* wants to live. We have already tried living the way I like to live, and he can't learn to enjoy it. We both hate the idea of living in a suburb - it has the worst sides of both ways of life and none of the positives of either - and neither of us want to live apart from each other, either. So the only options there are is that either I must learn how to yield and adjust, or we have no choice but to live separately. How does one learn to enjoy a homesteading life?
I call my woman my partner and she calls me her partner. but it's funnier when the other people we tell this to can't see our partner. it makes people really uncomfortable because they woul think we are gay until they see the other person. it's great. would recommend.
absolutely awful thread
all kiddy diddlers go in the oven.
30% of highschoolers gone
30% of teachers gone
100% of faggots gone
These numbers come from my ass but this isn't a bad thing.
This may be the most gay r*ddit post I've seen, and /fit/ is my main board.
OH NOOO OH NOOOO BROS

What's the best car to go /out/?
Top notch offroader highly capable, would happily buy another one if I could find one here
True he's just some dude, but he's also representative of the decline of /out/. Autistic shitflinging is part of the chan culture as a whole, but nitpicking without any sort justification or explanation is cancer. Jannies have proven themselves either unwilling or unable to maintain unique board cultures in current day, therefore it is now the burden of the anon to burn out the cancer.

Shiggy fucking diggy
Cunts are hardy as fuck and decently submersible too, as long as you still have traction you can have water halfway up your windscreen and still be fine
They also run on anything flammable too, like old cooking oil
With a snorkel maybe, water and diesel don't mix
Mushroom hunting. Post your finds, whether for eating or just cool-looking fungus. The last one went well and season is upon us.
I will start with a double stem Boletus edulis. Don't eat anything you can't identify.
Some sort of bolete
I think it's just polite, you know how people can be here.
Meh loot. Still a little too early it seems.
Make sure Inaturalist app makes it into the next OP, genuinely the best app available for anyone who touches grass right now. just don't let it substitute actual identification practices
I use ShroomID
Convince me to switch
How can I tell if the white fuzz growing in my BRF jar is good mycelium or bad mycelium
How dangerous is it to come across illegal weed plantations in the woods when you're /out/?
I was with him the night the guy gave it to him.
He sure as shit didn't have the money to buy it.
This guy knows what's up. Pic related, an average Canadian backyard.
Not him but weed is $400-500 an ounce here in NZ
Plenty expensive enough for Bikie gangs to kill you over it
>>2469541 >$400-500 an ounce
i pay $80 for a POUND of edibles

Hey man, LARP away. I despise bro-vets who get triggered by civies wearing whatever the hell they want. I've done plenty of civie /out/ing in "tactical" clothing, and it works just fine. I just personally wouldn't buy it purely for that purpose, since average /out/ doesn't even remotely require half the features you end up paying extra for.
Yes but I prefer having the tactical stuff so I use it for both
Also in a boog scenario I think you wouldn't go out in full kit, it would be a mix between civilian and tactical, so maybe youd have a gun and ammo and ifak and comms and the stuff to carry it like a chest rig or PC, or the could weather gear if needed but I don't think youd be running operations, at most youd go scavenging or patrolling for your community if you managed to create a small village but there are a thousand other roles that dont require LARP gear
Knock yourself out, anon. I'm not going into the whole TEOTWAKI/SHTF/boog thing, I've wasted enough years on that. I'd recommend solid family and local community ties before spending too much time theorycrafting which chestrig would fit under which goretex jacket while looking appropriately covert but also being a useful show of force. That shit doesn't matter if your daughter isn't getting her baby formula and no one will help you or barter with you. But, sincerely, boog-LARP all you want. LARPing is fun.
I agree with you that's what I was saying, it's more important to have essential items available and links with other people in order to have a functioning community organism that can give you survival and security and a new society on smaller scale
What annoys me is that since I live on the butthurt belt and due to recent acts of warmongering by our neighbour, gorka suits are considered as clothes of the enemy over here. Can't buy them from anywhere anymore. Also I wouldn't want risk getting shot by some hunter who mistakes me for a desantti or something.
>gets dark out >not long until you get in your tent >hear something in the bush >start growling, yelling, groaning to scare away whatever is or isn't in the bush Have you ever done this? I did last week
Oh, and most importantly, my primary worry is a pack of wild muzzies, and they are scared shitless of dogs.
>inb4 go further /out/
I'm a europoor, everything is within driving distance of a nearby enriched city.
As a Canadian I feel really bad for you. I literally drive 30 minutes in any direction and take my pick of lakes, bush, logging roads, etc. but at least you guys got the British "people" out that's good.
I know man, I've seen your country and the Americas in general. The amount of space is mindboggling. I hope you're taking advantage of it anon.
>you guys got
Nothing. We got nothing nowhere because the EU is a tyranical effeminate deep state bureaucracy that does whatever the hell it wants.
>>2468916 >needing nods/thermals
Do bears ever accidentally confuse stinky pussy for fish?
Do you find it awkward when you go hike solo on a casual place and come groups of boomers, families or couples?
Seem to be on edge when they see solo dudes in the woods.
whos going to hear them or come to help realistically? the implications.
>>2468536 >well that and you guys don't have any thru hikes
I just finished a 40 mile loop in GSMNP on Sunday. It started and ended at Clingman’s Dome, so one of the most popular attractions in one of the most popular parks. The Appalachian Trail connects to the Dome tower path that leads to the parking lot.
During that half-mile walk from the dome back to the car, I was stopped four times by friendly, smiling people asking about my hike. It wasn’t awkward at all because I’m not mentally defective.

Revamping and updating medkit, so rate and mock my shit. By actual sheer coincidence, I had to take a refresher course on first aid and CPR yesterday for work as well.
In the little bottles are acetaminophin capsules and potassium tablets, with cotton batting. Not pictured that I probably need to add: >hydrocortisone cream >nitrile gloves, I guess >thermometer maybe, but why? if you even think you need to check temps it's probably time to GTFO ASAP anyway Things not pictured that I do have, but that aren't kept in the kit: >iodine tablets >emergency thermal blanket >small "emergency" bottles of bug spray and sunscreen Dumb shit I should probably remove: >spray-on bandage What else should I add? Post your lists, even if you lack photos.
That "minor scrape" spray is good for just that. I would recommend a wound wash / spray that contains the Benzalkonium chloride rather than something that seals a wound. Wounds in the outdoors can get very dirty hence the necessity to have an irrigant on hand. Also, no paper towels are not common sense to be added to a medical kit. Stick those two items in there and the range of wounds you can treat will be greatly expanded.
Its actually worse because you round the clock stock people for sometimes momths waiting for the perfect time to strike. You learn there routines when the piss, when they shit, you learn about their familes, friends, loved ones. You are watching, and waiting. These targets are not dumb they know, they surround themselves with civies, children, women.
Though you wait and when the opportunity to strike with the least amount of collateral rises. You take it and like that, poof. The bastard never had a chance and now he haunts your dreams.
T. Worked with people who do that, wanted to do it myself.
I saw that Hollywood movie too.
What the fuck are you talking about?
>>2469398 >I EDC a CAT, and am TCCC certified and regular first aid instructor certified (both expired though)
I would literally live in a van, or a very small apartment, I mean, VERY small.
I often see people complaining about how it's cucked, it's the government pushing a bug life, but i don't know, i always felt safe in small spaces, ever since a kid, they're incredibly comfy, easy to clean, they have all you need. Besides, it would connect you more with the outside world if you just use it to sleep, watch movies, etc. The main problem I have with all that is the absence of a bathroom. Both a toilet and a shower seem even more important to me than a kitchen (I don't mind eating microwaved beans every day), but showering and pooping somewhere you don't have to clean or you don't sleep right next to is ideal. What's the best bathroom for small spaces?
>>2468449 >Living inside a van like a hobo is literally just as good as owning a home
Lmao nigger what?
>>2467547 >caring about what people on 4chan think or say
Don't do it, anon.
There's too many asshats in campers as it is, and not enough campsites to go around. Motor vehicle and van campers, with their massive, gas-guzzling, noisy campers, need to be thrown into the sea.
>>2454626 >or a very small apartment
Apartment condominiums can be pretty affordable and cozy. They always include bathrooms with both toilets and showers. Mine also has a fireplace.
