A lot of survival scenarios involve hiking for long distances and setting up camp in the wild. I want to know if there are any people here that have good information on surviving in the wilderness. I go on day hikes often but I'm still new to camping and actual survival without civilization. I plan on going hiking/camping, each time going for another day or two until I feel comfortable spending a week alone living off of the land.

Does anyone else spend multiple days and nights outdoors or have more off-grid lifestyles?

I do it, and you're absolutely right, you should work up to it. Get to know your local wild eatables. Also, it's important for you to do this year round...Summer is easy, in most places. Fall and spring are only mildly less so, full of wild greens, fall, especially, full of wild berries and nuts.

Winter is where your true test lies. When you can spend a week in winter with nothing but basic gear, then you've got a chance.

Here's a relatively little known fact: new buds on evergreen trees are edible. They're also high in vitamin C, which is good for preventing scurvy (which actually would become an issue in any post apocalyptic situation, since you are unlikely to be eating a well balanced diet)

There is a population of 10 million in LA County. In a space of 4,083 square miles (10,570 km2).

Its probably closer to 15 million I don't know when the census was taken or how many people are there illegally the point is its super dense population in some areas. New York/New Jersey is even worse in that regard.

The red zones on this map will be the most dangerous places to survive. There will be looting and maybe even widescale violence, so we know these are the places that will be the most dangerous.

Do you live in a red zone? What would be your plan? Hold your ground in the red zone and try to somehow sustain yourself in one those areas? Bug out to a more sparsely populated area?

If you don't live in a red zone how would you react to refugees? I live in a red zone, but I have family in very rural areas so I would be welcomed. If you don't know anyone in those areas what's your plan for bugging out?

So I see a lot of threads about BOBs and BIBs, but none about the most essential part of those kits: the MedKit. The ones that are ready-made are, quite frankly, lacking in supplies. Not to mention woefully insufficient.

In a kit centered around treating people around my vehicle i dont see a headlamp to be necessary. If i cant safely reach the patient im probably not going to treat them, Especially with my car kit.

I would prefer a headlamp in a wilderness situation, a torch for search and rescue when i still need to locate my patient, and chemical lights anywhere near a motor vehicle collision with flammable materials. None of that means a headlamp is useless in a car kit, etc. It just largely becomes a question of preference.

i guess you could just have the person hold the light if they are awake.

I'll experiment some more but I think you're wrong. If the enemy is not recovering and you are fallen, they will almost always hit you. And if they hit you it could knock you down again or even worse force you into recovery mode. If the enemy is recovering then of course just stand up. Rolling will almost always force them into recovery. It's basically risk-less unless the enemy has a gun.

I usually don't use pull down unless it's an emergency. If the enemy knocks you down and they have a loaded gun, you can pull them down and have a chance to run or kill them while they recover. You NEVER want to be standing face to face with a loaded gun or trying to dodge bullets

If you want to approach and kill an enemy with a loaded gun and you don't have one, try taking cover and moving towards them until they are close, then pop out and tackle them. If they ever manage to stand up while you're fallen then pull them down until you're the only one standing. Then kill them

I don't think roll/parry/dodge works very well against guns but I'm not positive

I'm not really a fan of trapping. I usually pick Melee, Strong, Hiding, and Ranged

I would still recommend against drinking unboiled water or wasting your antibiotics until it's an emergency. Boiled water is extremely easy to get. And I think you can get infections from wounds so you want to save up antibiotics for that. Can anyone confirm/deny this?

If you want them to retreat/surrender it helps if you're holding a gun. And I think wounding them first probably helps.

You might want to try athletics until you get better at fighting/scavenging. It will make it possible to run from pretty much any fight. It's a pain in the ass though because sometimes you have to run a million times before you finally create enough distance to escape.

And I think they can still see you if you're in their line of sight/range even if you hide your tracks. Somebody should confirm/deny this.

You probably just accidentally didn't see the frying pan. Or another bandit could have joined the fight half way through and you might not have noticed(Anyone know if this is possible?). NPCs do not switch weapons as far as I know.(Again, need clarification)

>>12082
I've never understood the benefit of having a hideout or upgrading the cryolab. I've never had enough rare items that I needed to stash them to make space. It can help with sleeping and crafting but you'd have to travel back to it every single time(Which could just cause you more hardship since you want to get to detroit ASAP). And I've never had a problem with sleeping. It seems to be the least of my concerns. But maybe it becomes necessary super-late in the game to stash items somewhere.

You will gain cannibalism and you'll be required to eat a lot more food to survive. I recommend against this.

they polished it alittle bit and made the little hex avatars with more continuity to what a character looks like.

now you can talk to people who are just scavangers.

theres new places to go, places to see and more to learn about the character.

new boots, new clothes. new weapons.

all the others are now new factions.

The implication is that you have been bitten for a long ass time when you are given the amputation option. I cant speak for the comics but in the show at least Dales amputation is done minutes in.
Even then its all fucking plot filler anyway, if they're already infected then the only logic I can assume is that bites kill you via introduction of rotten flesh into the wound and therefore antibiotics and proper wound cleaning should prevent death.

Amputation to stop infection has been portrayed inconsistently in the games, show, and (I gather, haven' t read most of them ) the comics. Since according to the canon everyone is already infected, the only reason why a bite would 'zombify' you would be if it killed you the way a normal human bite would (ie blood loss and infection). For what it's worth, human bites are notoriously infectious and I'm sure a rotting human would be quite a bit worse.

The most generous way to interpret the way amputation is shown to affect zombification is that it (possibly) helps prevent the spread of microorganisms in the wound to the rest of the body if it's performed immediately, but that the amputation itself causes major blood loss and the potential for infection from the resulting injury. The best thing would probably be to clean it out and bandage the bite and then fill the victim up with antibiotics. But I don't think Lee in the game even knew that he had been infected with the 'zombie virus' all along and so amputating his arm made more sense as an option because he thought the most important thing was to keep the zombie virus out of his system rather than treat a regular infection. He then died of infection/bloodloss later. I thought it was sort of stupid of Rick to hack off Hershell's leg like that, but sometimes people do stupid things. It was an emergency and he didn't really have much time to think it through.

The less generous way to interpret it is that the writers are too stupid to keep the canon consistent. I prefer not to think of it that way.

Yeah I think Rick knew they would need to either amputate his leg and hope for the best or spend who-knows-how-much time searching the zombie-infested prison for antibiotics for the only competent doctor in the group.

That won't work. For beer, first you need to malt the seeds (partially germinate) then mash the seeds (soak in warm but not boiling water) then boil it, THEN leave alone for a few weeks.

Wines are much easier, since it's pretty much what you wrote except with fruit instead of seeds. And juice instead of dust.

I think there's another thread about this in /fo/

Let's assume SHTF somehow. All the zombies are dead. The pandemic is over. Radiation levels are back to normal. The environment is okay. You and your group survived but modern society no longer exists and 60% of the human race is essentially wiped out. Now your group has chosen you to rebuild civilization.

Sorry we're late, Submarine travel always gets tricky around these gulfs.

Hello! Welcome to the Community of Happy Cephalopods! We live in large underwater skyscrapers that act as functioning islands.. kinda like icebergs, so we're a nomadic oceanic culture that strives on trade, fishing, self preservation and community.

Of course to keep such a technological feat running we need smart educated people to be ready and willing to solve engineering feats we might have., We're always renovating, adding and sharing what we have with others. We also need things like nylon cloth, aluminum, wood, silicon and silly putty.

We live on a system of temporary property ownership known as mutualism. People can take some submarines or boats as they please, but they gotta use'em . We got plenty of rooms and storage space, underwater farms, gigantic turbines that harness the power of the ocean storing the energy in large salt-cells.

It's basically a system of mutual respect, we work together and our culture dictates that we don't hoard anything and generally share it within the communities. The only forms of official government are the keepers of silly putty, who are known to be quite pernicious relationships regarding this rare and pleasant resource.

Writing a post apocalyptic story and need some help. Basically the main character is a scientist working with the deadliest airborne disease. He knows if this gets out it will wipe out the population. Just to be precarious he builds a bunker for himself in case anything goes down.

It does go down and he has to stay there for years. 5+ years. What can he have in his bunker to survive for years? I need ideas for electricity. Can't use gas for too long. Solar panels can be stolen from other survivors. So what energy source can he use?

Also what else can he put in the bunker? Like food, water, body waste etc.

What? Precarious means a risky situation, not one of Pre-Caring about the possible disasters. I think you should write your story in your native language.

Pic related. Make your story about the intense isolation of being underground, how the scientist takes his family down with him and despite doing his best to shoulder the burden of providing power to his family by cycling on one of these devils, start to stress the emotional strain of him having to put the burden onto his family. First his wife, then his children.

It'll be a thinly veiled stab at how the American dream has been pigeon-holed into a race you sacrifice your children to the national debt, which none of us can ever win.

Cause when you stop pedalling, the power goes out.

Saw this on a Facebook group I'm in. Been wondering more about different alarms that can get ghetto rigged. Anyone have any thoughts on homemade alarms, possibly silent?

The best perimeter alarms are piles of dogshit. From like a really big dog with a healthy diet of steamed plain white rice and dry food.

Uses fire on a structure designed to with stand fire.
Doesn't understand basic bunker construction and how satelite bunkers work. They are not connected to the bunker dipshit.

You seem to be idealizing these bunkers into easily destroyed buildings instead of actaully trying to get inside the head of a bunker builder.

As I said, keep it up. I'm sure it will work out well for you. You and your non existent IR cameras.

You have confirmed my accusations.

The fire isn't to destroy the bunker it's to destroy the surrounding natural cover so everything is really easy to see.

I'm not trolling you're just mad I am upsetting your bunker fantasies and it's hilarious.

youre entire scenario requires you to know where the bunker is and have a large group of people to siege it.

good luck convincing a bunch of people to wander around the woods looking for a camoflagued entrance. most people place these things in rather isolated areas so you'd need to bring in supplie trains to supply your people as you hunt for the bunker and destroying all the natural supplies to attempt to get in is counter intuitive the entrances are usually hidden and if you've ever played hide and seek in the woods a little camo goes a long way.

and its not like people who make these things arent prepping for nukes that release poison gasses and such so theyed have filters to remove things like smoke.

better off just raiding something not ment to stand up to a raid.

At what point is it best to bug out? What real-world scenarios would warrant dropping everything, grabbing your bag and getting the fuck out of Dodge, so to speak? I get natural disasters that leave large areas uninhabitable or at the very least very dangerous would be up there on the list as well as rioting and social unrest but at this point it may be too late to make for an effective escape. What are the warning signs that one should look for in regards to deciding it is time to leave?

Pic slightly related, an old picture of my hiking gear. Yes, there is a wand and pipe in there since while I was hiking I was also heavily into my shaman phase of spiritual exploration. I've added some things since then but for the sake of brevity I won't go into it. This is for scenarios and general warning signs, not necessarily gear.

That's my thinking as well. When I see panic starting to spread my way, I prepare to leave as quickly as I can. But what I'm trying to get at is that I need to know the warning signs of such unrest as well as other situations where bugging out is warranted.

Keep tabs on world events and local news. The weather too.

Usually the PANIC! mode happens suddenly and without warning due to something like radio/cell phone announcements suddenly like RUSSIA IS INVADING REMAIN CALM THE NATIONAL GUARD WILL PROTECT YOU or a nuke siren would turn any other calm day into full retard chaos mode. Those are the kinds of things you can't anticipate. Sneak attacks from terrorists or invading countries. Sudden natural disasters happen without warning sometimes but there are usually warning signs with tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanos, bad storms, hurricanes etc.

A terrorist attack requires a different response than an invasion obviously. If you hear about a terrorist attack get away from populated areas, get all your NBC survival gear and watch the news. Go to a remote location if people are being rounded up by the National Guard for safety as those locations could become potential targets next. The Guard will be meaning well but you should look after your own ass, plus with relief camps like that, panic can make them explode into unconstrained chaos, paranoid OMG FEMA CAMPS people can start grabbing M16s from the armory and yeah, you don't want to be there unless you're a Guardsman, then obviously do your duty.

For an invasion the same general rule applies but foreign countries know the US is chock full of gun toting average people so if you see foreign soldiers parachuting into your neighborhood, shoot to kill because they've most likely been ordered and trained to treat you as an enemy combatant. The National Guard will tell you to go to their camps and not fight but they'll be glad people did when the dust settles.

Seriously any invading soldier setting foot in America is going to be paranoid as fuck. They will shoot, your little cottage house or whatever isn't going to look innocent and pastoral. If they don't behave that way their invasion isn't going to last very long. So yeah be aware of that if you're an American citizen or even just visiting here and an invasion happens. Everyone here might become a target.
