  1. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    I generally stay on trails and have never felt the need to mark my passage. However, I've been kicking around the idea of carrying a small spray paint can in my day-hiking bag to mark trees with a small spot or "X" of bright neon paint on the far side of the tree so I can see it when I'm...
  2. General Discussion
    not sure of impact but *Science* says US' trees are moving West https://www.sciencealert.com/american-trees-have-started-migrating-west-and-no-one-knows-why "Over the past 30 years, three-quarters of eastern US tree species have been shifting to the west, and at an astonishing rate of around...
  3. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    So my new property has some wooded hillsides, and some lawn hillsides, I really don't want to cut the grass on the hillsides, but I am wondering what would be good to plant where there is currently lawn? Maybe garlic, asparagus? What would be good hillside crops on the forested hills? Or should...
  4. General Discussion
    So I'm thinking of ditching city life with all the people and problems. Been thinking of buying some cheap land or maybe even renting some wooded forest land from someone. Buying a camper and taking tons of supplies and food for long term survival. Maybe even build a little homestead. Or a...

  6. Non-Lethal Weapons & Self Defense
    I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with the various patterns of camo available, just wondering what everyone's preferred types are and why? Granted, it should be best for your situation/location. I'm opting to go with the new A-TACS FG for the very green coniferous forests of Oregon. ACU/old...
  7. General Discussion
    I got a PM from another poster, he brought up a good question. Lets see what ideas others may have. That is hard to do. Most of this state is forest, and privately owned. It does change hands and it sells for low prices [per acre], but it is mostly in 100+ acre parcels. If a parcel gets...
  8. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    I keep hearing about all these "Real Men" and "Survivalists" on the forum! I hear but I don't see a whole lot of doing. Every New Years we hike into the Red River Gorge in the Daniel Boone National Forest. We hike in about 10 miles make camp and stay at least 2 nights in the cold, dark, and...
  9. Books, Movies & Stories
    Forest Sanctuary Jon Harper was an average guy with a typical job in sales. Now, not cold selling (like calling and bothering you at dinner), but behind the counter of a local Pep Boys auto parts store. It was a type of work that he liked. As a parts man he...
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    We have 42 acres, which is pretty much a square 1/4 mile on each of four sides. The East side is a river, the West side is a county road. Across the road we have 105 acres; it is 1/4 mile wide and 1 mile deep. Running it's entire length, deadcenter is a jeep trail. Both properties are forested...
