Anyone have knowledge on foraging for food in the wild.

I'm trying to know which plans and insects are bad to eat.

I live in Texas so there are a lot of berries and such to pick from.

I feel the universal method of trying stuff is to have a teensy bit and see how it sits.

Ive just been told by family and friends to not eat certain things because they're poisonous.

Any pointers?

/Out/ings With a Pipe Thread #30

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Prince Albert, Carter Hall or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $20.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

I have a pretty remote trek coming up where I'll have to filter 100% of my drinking water. Normally I'd just use a Sawyer filter inline with my water bladder, but this time around I'd really like to try a nutritional drink mix. If I mix the drink powder into my water source, then drink it straight through a filter, I'm concerned that it will either damage the filter, or the nutritional content of the drink mix.

I'd like to find a way to quickly filter a large amount of water into my bladder, that way I don't have to worry about drinking the beverage through a filter. Quick and easy is the name of the game, the drink mix replaces most meals, so I have to use it basically every time I drink water, that means filtering water every single time I fill up my bladder.

Any ideas /out/?

How do you like your caffeine while /out/?

coffee and tea
I have tried cowboy coffee, those hard plastic french presses, and an old fashioned stovetop espresso maker. Ultimately the best option I've found for coffee inna woods is actually nescafe clasico instant coffee. It is the closest to a real cup of coffee I've had for the weight.

Recently however, I got food poisoning and was unable to eat or drink anything for 3 days. The caffeine withdrawal headache finally went away after 4, and I started questioning whether I actually wanted to go back to drinking coffee every day. I now have an 8oz cup on saturday and sunday, but have been drinking tea throughout the week every other day. This got me thinking, though... I can have a really good cup of tea innawoods for the same weight and volume as a shitty cup of instant coffee. Why wouldn't I do that? Does anyone else opt for tea instead of coffee while /out/?

Want to get into backpacking/fishing.

As a child, I always wanted to go backpacking/fishing/hunting. Unfortunately that was never something my parents did so I never got to experience it. Eventually that yearning went away.

I'm an adult now, and over the past couple of years I've been getting the feeling of wanting to really get into the outdoors. Ever since I started having this feeling again, been camping, kayaking and snorkeling now. All things I wanted to do when I was young, and things I ended up really enjoying.

I want to get into fishing as well now, but I don't really know where to start. I know I'll need a license. I'm sure it will go away in time, and it will have to, especially if I plan on learning how to hunt eventually, but I have an aversion to seeing things being hurt. Putting live bait onto hooks, killing and cleaning the fish, these are things I know I will have to do. How can I get over this aversion as quickly as possible?

Thanks for the input!

This thing is a woiperdinger. It's a lower-bavarian mythical creature and a mix of quite a lot of real ones, mostly a rabbit. There is not much myth around it, other than them being mainly in the 'Bayrischer Wald' (Bavarian Forest) but also all around Bavaria. They are omnivores and hunt in flight.

Kind of, in theory, the Amazon of prepping without all the extra Amazon bullshit. Offering the ability to pay in cash too somehow, but that is down the road. Something discreet that won't try to upsell you or scare you into preparing for anything but allows you to do so. No, "IF YOU DON'T BUY THIS ONE SIMPLE THING YOU WILL DIE" because I hate that shit. No identifying boxes or anything to let anyone know what you're getting in the mail. Just a simple place to get stuff without all the bullshit.

What should I include? So far I have in mind

How tight is too tight for boots? How to reduce sores and blisters?
I sat on my couch for 4 months after I lost my wagie job. However I’m on day 6 of a construction job doing general labor and my feet are fucking killing me? Is it a socks problem? Would an insole help? Are my 4 year old Carolinas just too old?

Self sufficiency

Where do I start when it comes to self sufficiency?
I have a place, or my family does. It's big area which used to be a farm before it was converted into a workshop/storage before it was forgotten. It's overall a very huge area, there is a small path of forest, a small field, 2 houses, a garage one large warehouse and one large workshop. Sound like a dream place for something like this but these building are old and haven't been maintained at all and even though they are useable they do require a lot of fixing or I don't see them still standing in 10-20 years. We do try to fix them up here and there but our knowledge and time is limited.
I don't think this place is the best for growing crops either. The weather here is rarely "good", we only get warmth and sun frommid spring to summer, otherwise it's cold, wet and windy, It's windy almost all the time. It's a mere 50 meters away from the coast to everything is covered in salt and the air is very dry. Overall there is very little forest and wildlife.

If I want to start I imagine I will need a lot of money, like a lot of money. I just spent about $3,000 getting an old pick up truck for work, this is not including maintenance, insurance etc.
If I'm going to farm my own crops and such I will need lots of equipment and building material. I can't even begin to imagine how much money it would cost me to get a tractor, a ploug, a cultivator etc. And I would need a boat aswell for fishing

There is just so many things I need to consider. But for now I'm mostly curious if I should I find another place to move to and start there, a smaller place just for myself. This place or try it just seems like so much to handle at the moment

American Dream Lake

Lake island
First post on /out/...
I have this dream every couple of nights about kayaking on a lake. Its not like the same thing happens every time, but I'm always in a kayak in the same lake. It's about 4000 acres big, and has a much of small islands dotting around it, and I'll land there and look around at these pine trees and generally stomp through the tiny woods for a bit.
Does anyone know where a lake like this exists in real life, preferably America? It's just make me want to go kayaking, maybe for like my birthday.

Keychain thread

What do you put on your keychains for going /out/, or even just as EDC?
Right now, all that I have is a small carabiner and a NiteIze DoohicKey, but I want to add on a thing or two to it to make it a little more useful (and slightly hefty—I only really have two or so keys that I carry around at this time so it's pretty light in the pocket.)

Hey Guys:
So I recently got my hands on an old Italian army rucksack for a pretty low price. Problem is, this rucksack smells like the Tunisian campaign. I think over the years being stored somewhere it got mold and now the stench is unbearable. I wanna clean this shit but I got no time to do it by hand... Should I put it in the washing machine? I mean this shit has a lot of metal parts and a long iron chain in it so idk if it would be a good idea. Any suggestions?

Security cameras

I’ve got some property out in the woods that I’d like to have some kind of security over. I’d like to be notified somehow when it starts recording (Motion activated) and I’d like it to be self sustaining (loop recording, solar powered).
This isn’t for a SHTF scenario but I could see this as an investment in the prepping budget. Ay suggestions?

/Out/ Instrument Thread 2.0

>>1469793 Last thread is kill.
Pic related is my Deering Goodtime 5-String
Been looking into a more portable solution with the same feeling and tuning as a banjo.
Someone talked me out of getting a "banjolele" as it is basically a meme instrument plagued with intonation issues (and tuned liked a ukulele)
Someone suggested getting a piccolo banjo instead as it is essentially a smaller banjo just tuned an octave higher.
Anyone have experience with piccolo banjos before?

Solar Chargers

I will be climbing around the Pacific Northwest for a month and a half. I am in the market for a portable solar charger for my camera. I don't give two fucks about my phone, just my camera. The camera is a Cannon Rebel T6, battery for camera is pic related. I'd ask the electronics board, but I think I'd have better luck finding out what is tested to be durable/waterproof. I also feel /out/ would know what is affordable. I'm working with $200USD

All powerful space aliens will capture you and sent you back in time 20000 years to star in a version of the TV show ALONE for their entertainment. You will be dropped at a safe place as close as possible to your current location. You can bring 10 items to help you survive. If you can survive for 365 days, you will be brough back and will recieve 5m US$ in price money. Gaming the system is impossible, leaving traces of yourself is impossible as they will be cleared. You can bring 10 items, if you do not currently own them they will be provided for you. A gun counts as one item and comes with 1+3 magazines (if applicable). 100rds of any ammunition also count as one item. You can wear all the clothes you want, clothes on your body do not count towards your item count. All you are bringing has to be man portable, meaning if you can't carry it all out of your home it's illegal. So no armored vehicles or any such funny business.

What do you bring? Where are you? What will you do?
