Welcome to here, Absinthminded. I'll be looking for your story in the creepy outdoor experience thread! By the way, nice play on the screen name. (Watch out that La Fée Verte don't bite ya!)

We're glad you have joined us. I hope you will enjoy this place as much as we do! There’s something for almost everyone who is interested in self-reliance, survival, and disaster preparedness.

Here is a handy "Cheat Sheet" to help make your stay here more enjoyable and productive.

Many useful links are found here and there on the site, but here are the most important ones right here at your fingertips:

The house rules: https://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=2

You need to make at least five posts before you have access to the whole site: https://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=8516

If you have a question about the forum, please post it here: https://www.survivalistboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=9

If you have a problem that you need assistance from a moderator or staff, go here:
https://www.survivalistboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=53 Although it looks like a public forum, all threads started in this section are visible ONLY to the person starting the thread and to the moderators/staff/administrators.

If you see a post or thread that you think violates a rule just click the red and white triangle at the top right corner of every post. It will send an email to every moderator and it will be dealt with as soon as possible.

If you would rather not see posts from a particular member, you can make them “go away” with a click of a button! Here’s how to work the Ignore feature: Near the top of the page you will see “User CP.” That is your control panel. Click on it to bring a drop-down menu. Look for “Settings and Options.” Then, click on “Edit Ignore List” which will bring up the panel where you can copy and paste or type the exact name of the obnoxious knucklehead into the blank box under the words “Ignore List ... Add a Member to Your List” Then click, “Okay.”

To remove a user from your ignore list, un-check the box associated with their name and click the 'Save Changes' button.


If you are in the business of selling stuff and would like to take advantage of our Merchants program go here: https://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=3797

Although you can use our search feature (located at the top of the main page), it is not as powerful as https://www.google.com/ or https://duckduckgo.com/. Here’s how to use the search engines to find all of our threads and posts about any topic of interest:

Just type in the term site:survivalistboards.com into your favorite search engine, followed by the word(s) or phrase of your choice, and bingo! There they are.

Sometimes when old threads are dug up and commented on, fresh eyes get to see them and sometimes new thoughts or personal experiences, or additional cited research/news articles get thrown in.

Or, you may prefer just to start a new thread. Either way works.

Jump in! We are looking forward to your posts!

Welcome from Southern Illinois. A place ruled by lunatic dictators running the state from Chicagostan.

Hello from the panhandle. The Real Florida
Sadly, for me & others like-minded, you're pretty correct about the pan handle =*( what used to be places to go slogging about the 'glades, getting ripped up by saw palmetto, watching birds of prey perch atop bald cypress has receded north & become suburbia while everything south is being lost to the night life and an unofficially incorporated Cuba. That's not racist...I just detest a lot of the toll times has taken on the land. It was a beautiful variation of what America and nature had to offer!

I don't know how to edit yet, and I'll earn my whole site privileges with encounters *girl scout honor* but I also wanted to say thank you to all of you for the welcome 🙂

I've been wanting to take my children, now that they are older, camping - real camping! for a while, maybe we can all set up a group trip.

It's been a hot minute since I went last. Some places I used to go have been 'recycled' into neighborhoods, so I'm open to any good areas for primitive camping. With and without nearby facilities (1 is a get your toe wet then decide type, the other will jump in head first!) I'm thinking a happy medium for a first trip out is in order.

Thank you 😃 and you caught that one! I have her bottled up pretty tight in some beautiful hand blown bottles from Czech Rep I had the privilege of bringing home. She's wearing my resolve down though haha

I posted one encounter, trying to work up my resolve to bring forth the others, and to which thread they belong best, although there seems to be a crossover for indoor/outdoor experiences. To quote one of my favorite areas of the outdoor exp thread, "Hmmm..."
