    Banned creature banned for flaming other users, staff harassment, general insanity

    Sorry, I assumed that since you re-opened the thread, it meant what you said: that comments were welcome. You failed to be specific in stating that only comments sympathetic to the decisions of the mod team were welcome. You said "folks need to keep it on topic", and the topic appears to be...

    How did you find a place to settle

    Well, think about climate change and peak oil and regional survival prospects for the worst case scenario for each. You'll want lots of water, low population density, a long hard winter to scare off city folks fleeing their homes, lots of game, and decent soil. Solid gun rights, and a good look...

    Credit cards

    The only way it would be worth playing with credit would be if you systematically got impeccable credit over many years, got as many credit cards as possible, and then bought up liquifiable assets in credit and sold them for cash. And then dipped to Cambodia.

    Bike touring in the UP

    Looks like a dope dude, the UP would be a great bike trip. Seems like it's pretty flat, without being boring or insanely windy, and the scenery is outrageously good. Only passed through once quickly, but I'd like to spend more time there sometime soon. Especially Keeweenaw peninsula!

    Klymit Static V Luxe Sleeping Pad - Awesome extra wide pad

    I just bought this: It's 30" wide and it came in the mail today; it's got to be the most comfortable pad I've ever owned. It's more comfortable than a regular bed. Weighing in at 1lb 12oz, it's hefty, but it packs down small, and seems to be worth the weight. I've been skeptical of air pads...

    Event Anti-Civ Gathering in Upstate NY April 28th

    It's still sort of happening, but it kind of petered out. Unless things have changed, @Drengor @malaclypse +2 buddies of theirs, and a few of my friends are showing up, but a number of people who were close to going had to back out for whatever reason. So it's really more a little campout than a...

    places to get lucky

    Just to let you know, this community has a lot of creepy messages from men with fewer than 50 posts about sex, so you may not be well received. There are also a fair few folks here with a pretty puritanical mindset regarding sex due to their politics; they usually would revel in cussing you out...

    Oh I still could do it but I'm just generally confused by the dichotomies; I want to be stationary but also want to travel, I want to be around people but also people disappoint me, etc etc. Building the bunker is great while stationary but idk whether I want to be in one place right now or on...

    What are the big differences between North America and Europe according to you ?

    A big difference I notice, as an American who has not traveled to Europe, is that while many Europeans seem to visit the US, most Americans don't seem to leave their state, much less their country.

    Thinking about heading towards Eastern Europe

    I saw a user on /r/shoestring on Reddit that mentioned staying in hostels in rural Ukraine for as little as two euro, which I found crazy. Also said you can get a cheap bottle of beer in a grocery store for less than $0.25. Not sure I believe it, but this may also have been right around the time...

    Ha, I'm glad you enjoyed it. To be honest, I am completely in disagreement with the speaker - the idea of humanity being even somewhat weaned from fossil fuels in 4 decades is absolutely preposterous - but I thought he was interesting nonetheless. I find my hope on a five century scale instead...

    Building a Stealth Squat on Wilderness Land

    All good replies, thanks folks. It doesn't get anymore local than land - and thus, conditions will vary. I think a lot of concerns raised are quite relevant in some areas, particularly the likes of what's out on the west coast. I grew up in this area and can say that I have scarcely ever seen...

    Folding BIke Touring

    Bravo! Since I bought my Dahon I have been 100% on-board with the folder life. It feels almost like "hacking" travel; I kept thinking to myself "wow, did I just unlock some sort of ancient secret?" Bad hitchhiking spot? No problem, unfold and ride. Too broke for the city bus? Ride it out...

    Roadkill, I have heard a few things about this, but I have yet to find any good information on when this year's is. I am thinking I won't make it to the west this summer, but if I do, I hope you'll post some information on the gathering here. Hope you make it out!

    my forced retirement from being a vagabond

    Matt have you thought of getting dental work done in another country? I remember Ephemeralstick did well with some small dental work in Mexicali - perhaps with some searching you could find the procedures you're looking for cheaper than $4000 south of the border. Either way, best of luck. I...

    Hey not sure of your route to Maine but if you need a spot in upstate NY, I'd be happy to have you for as long as you'd like. We're having a get-together the 28th up here.

    Library Days of War, Nights of Love

    The book that started it all! Smoked my first corncob reading this. Made that fucker out of a cob I picked up off the ground and used a jalapeno stem for the stem and a little clay to get it to stick. Jacked some tobacco from my uncle and lit up and started thinking about how when I wanted to...

    Building a Stealth Squat on Wilderness Land

    Was curious about experiences with this. I've got a spot I know of by some nice moving water where I know virtually no one ever goes. It's close enough to resources - library, bar, post office, places to find a day's work, etc - but very seldom traveled. It's a stream valley with extremely steep...
