Gonna spend a couple days bouncing around the coast and camping in the woods - may be sheltered, may not be. taking a day pack.

Matches dipped in wax so they are waterproof. The lighter can and will fail you if it gets wet.

Leatherman, not knife. More versatile.

Marijuana, mushrooms, LSD.

Book(s)? How much reading do you plan on doing?

A small pot so you can boil water, don't wanna be drinking any scuzzy shit.

go naked with enough psychedelics to stay high the whole time. I suggest some salvia, shrooms or acid, mabey some DMT. Lots of pot. 4ho-DET if you can get your hands on some. Should be good. Bring a blanket to wrap around yorself when you are wandering through the woods mad on drugs.

along with what you have above that should do it, Good luck. :wink:

Should be good. :thumbup:


edit ~ make sure you have a pen and a notepad so you can jot down key ponts of your conversations with the trees. They are very wise and have good things to tell you if you gain thier respect, otherwise they will just fuck with your head, but you will still get some hillarious dialouge to write down. :smile:

a gallon is not nearly enough water, get a purifier, and make sure youre close to a fresh water suppply, also for fire, take some lint from the dryer and mix it with wax, makes a good fire starter :smile:

i would reomend a phone, to be used only in emergencise, what area are you doing this in?

if you have to ask what you need to take into the forest, you shouldnt go into the forest for a couple days, solo.

don't bring the gallon of water, just a filter/purifier. water is too heavy to carry. bring a compass, maps if you have/want them, dried fruits, grains, nuts, rain gear, sleeping bag, a couple layers of clothes, first aid kit, something to tie your food up in a tree if you're in bear country, waterproof matches, utility knife, books, pen and paper, and wear good shoes. sounds like a long list, but if you pack right it won't weigh very much. also bring plenty of ganja and some acid and/or mushrooms. a flask of whiskey is also very nice. good luck, living like that takes some balls but it is very rewarding :sun:  i :heart: nature

they are probably right, but if your the person i think you are and you live where i think you can do it relativly safe.  jsut dont be going for an adventure into the mountians.  being on teh coast makes life easy for not getting lost.  head west and you hit wwater....follow coast you eventually hit stuff.

we have beaver feaver in some water, purify it...that is one thing you DO NOT WANT!!!

have fun man.  go figure, the rains started :rolleyes:

Yeah, Kadakuda reflects my sentiments -

Ive got a general idea on wilderness survival (first aid, camp set up, water/cooking.) and will only be hiking about 45 minutes away from highway/people - this is definately a spur of the moment type thing, and im not terribly voiced with camping in general..

I just got back from Shopping where i spent too much completely illogically on my visa - but will have the money to pay it back and still live for a couple weeks while job searching when i get back.

Fortuantely i recently traded some beans for a nice sleeping bag
- 2 days ago found a wonderful midsized Northface; Big Shot pack..

Now ive got -

1) Sleeping bag
2) Headlamp
3) hiking shoes
4) LSD, Mushrooms, + salvia (thanks for the suggestion)
5) glass pipe also recently traded.
6) lighter
7) Waterproof matches
8) water purification kit *ick*
9) 2 tarps
10) suntan lotion
11) 2 Bandana's
12) rope
13) 2 shirts, hoodie, polypropylene + waffle shirt/lowers.
14) Rain gear.
15) heat blanket/pads
16) towel
17) Sharpie
18) books + notebook
19) Pen/pencils
20) Knives.
21) utensils.
22) Soap.
23) socks.
24) Camera.
25) sewing kit.
_______
Food -

Trail mix + almonds
Pasta + oil
Stew
Apple's and oranges
Granola
Brown Sugar

and i think thats about it.


Oh money/visa and a phone.

water purification tablets are not meant for long term use imo

also anything made of cotton is not the best choice in clothing due to water retention

some bug repellant might be a good idea depending on the area due to the prevalence of west nile virus

if you can waterproof your shoes & pack

a large trash bag is handy to cover your pack with if it rains

maybe some tevas/sandals

you can download free topo maps from http://www.topozone.com/default.asp

if not take a copy that is laminated with tape, maybe familiarize yourself with the possible terrian

COMPASS, you can get them for 5-10 dollars. even if you think dont need it, i think it would be wise

thanks for the topo maps - im choosing my root and destionations tonight and possibly tommorow, but my roommates have covered the area well, and i think it's well survivable and findable just by exploring in the day light.

I also have bugspray - Thanks for the reminder,

Aswell as biodegradable soap.

I don't have a lot to add that hasn't been mentioned already.  Let me just say this...no amount of equipment and preparation  can take the place of common sense.  99% of all people who run into problems in the wilderness actually create the problems themselves.  Or they at least take a small problem and turn it into a big one.  If something unexpected happens there is no better course of action then to stop, sit down, and think it through, before you react to the situation (assuming any immediate danger has passed).  I can't tell you how many times I've had to 'help' someone who really didn't need any help at all.  They had just lost the ability to think rationally and let panic dictate their reactions to a situation.

Hope that didn't seem like gloomy or wasted advice.  Honestly, I wouldn't worry about a thing.  I think you'll have a blast! :thumbup:
