stock up on canned/dehydrated/dry food (cereal/rice/ramen/peanutbutter/raisins/etc) -- don't neglect canned veggies you'd be amazed how quickly you'll start craving them -- stock up on R E A L money, stock up on guns and especially ammo (barter purposes). 10-20 gallons of water in GOOD long-term water storage containers is also a great idea. a lightweight portable water filter straw like this could also prove invaluable, especially if you have to hit the woods. make sure you have some fuel for cooking those noodies -- you can get a dirt-cheap backpacking stove for five bux on amazon, fresh out of chinese slave hands, then buy 4-5 canisters of this stuff (will run you about 5-6 bucks per can at shart-your-pants-mart). will last a single person months if you're only cooking dinner. might consider storing some gasoline in case you need to gtfo quick and the looters already hit quik-trip, might consider burying a portion of your R E A L money. hoarding a bit of emergency CASH is also a must; it ain't gonna become completely worthless in an hour and in non-financial collapse scenarios you'll need it.

a tent is GREAT to have, the woods will be safer than the city in a true just-f-my-country-up-fam situation. make sure you got flashlights, extra batteries, SOME form of protection if for whatever reason you can't get guns&ammo -- pepper spray, tazers, baseball bats, blahblah. if you're blind make sure you have an extra pair of glasses that you can see somewhat-clearly out of, cause if your original pair gets busted you are completely and utterly BONED. make sure you have warm clothing, winter clothing, even if you're in florida; if you gotta bail you don't know where you'll have to bail to.

oh yeah, and TP. it's always handy.

by the way, normies will say this is all super-paranoid stuff and not worth the hassle, but none of this stuff takes up much room, it's easy to get, and it will be utterly priceless if things go south, even if just locally, as you're experiencing now. the people who don't prepare at all will be powerless in such a situation, and honestly, if they're adults, probably shouldn't be pitied. one area the mormons have it right actually; they prepare and don't get complacent.

u/phobos2deimos · 8 pointsr/backpacking

I've got a ton of budget best bang for the buck gear, but one place you absolutely should not skimp on is socks. Buy 2-3 pair of SmartWool Expedition weight socks. It's like wearing slippers inside your boots.
Socks
Here's some more of the cheap (mostly) gear that I purchased and am still happy with. This includes some revisions I've made after a somewhat miserable trip to Yosemite. I am a freak for reading reviews and digging for the best price.
$8 Stove
$8 Mug
$16 underwear... okay, this is almost as important as socks!
$29 Solar charger, or DIY
$85 Water filter, didn't want to skimp here although water tabs are doable
$9 550 paracord
$14 multitool - use a small cheap knife to 'cut' costs
$28 titanium Anodized Aluminum pot
$9 Tarp Couldn't find the link, but it's at WalMart in their camping section, by Outdoor Products.
$9 titanium spork
$45 hammock - you can get cheaper on campmor, but this one caught my eye at REI
$16 hammock suspension - you can get cheaper by DIY
$14 Compass
Sierra Trading Post has Comfortrel longjohns for $17/top or bottom - feels cheap, but effective.
$24 15 degree mummy bag IMO the next best thing for the money is The Cat's Meow at ~$90.
$22 tent - small, decent weight, cheap, hard to find. Not sure if I trust in rain, but worked great for five days of decent weather and 30 degree nights. Dumped this for the hammock setup due to weight and size. (but it's not that heavy or big)


In addition, I'll be switching to the $45 54litre pack from Costco.
GoLite has some crazy cheap light backpacks, but they don't seem to do well for loads heavier than ~25 pounds, which you probably won't hit on a budget.
$10 tab stove - haven't used, gonna try this out soon

Wal Mart has been seriously stepping up their backpacking game in the last year or so. Take a look their. A lot of the products are decent quality at crazy good prices.

u/stabsthedrama · 8 pointsr/Frugal

No, but a $4 compact camping stove off amazon and a $5 canister from the store sure is.

Seriously though...these things are invaluable for camping... last time camping I heated up some leftover Caribbean jerked pork, some soup, some coffee in the mornings... and its the size of a deck of cards pretty much, and the canisters are pretty small too.

u/Boom_87 · 6 pointsr/camping

I have owned an msr pocket stove for a while and loved it. When it went missing I spent a season without it because I was too stubborn to buy a piece of gear I just had to find. Well next season I decided to just do a ton of research and see if there was anything that was being sold for a fraction of the price but was still popular. That's when I found this. Do yourself a favor and start skimming through the reviews. There's a lot of them. There are things about it that could be better but hey for under 6$ I have used the shit out of this thing and have been thoroughly pleased.

u/Toof · 6 pointsr/backpacking

I'd personally recommend this stove honestly. It comes it really handy and is quick to light.

I used a penny stove for awhile, and the damned thing is a bitch to light in the cold, you know, exactly when you'd want it the most.

u/paradigm86 · 5 pointsr/CampingGear
u/hotstargirl · 4 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

For what RedDawn couldn't answer, there is cell reception on pretty much all the trail in NJ.

I think this is the stove that is the $7 one off Amazon. I put it on here because it's actually the stove I have and has proven to be reliable.

Check gear lists to see if there's anything you think you would want listed.

u/trebory6 · 3 pointsr/CampingGear

I've been using this $8 stove I got on Amazon, and so far it's been working just as well as my friend's Pocket Rocket. Just putting that out there.

But out of curiosity, where would you recommend finding used gear?

u/trololuey · 3 pointsr/Frugal

$100 is a bit much. You can find good ones cheap.

I really like the can idea though because it will work for anyone in a pinch.

u/eowenith · 3 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

My SO and I did a nobo this year. We had one stove and two cups. We started with a pot, which I think was 1.3 liters, and sent it home in Neels Gap cause it was heavy and we never used it.

u/totallyshould · 3 pointsr/bicycletouring

Ok, it got kind of late and not everything is available yet, so in lieu of the photo, here's a full list:

Bike stuff:

  • Extra tube, patch kit, tire levers, compact hand pump

  • Chain tool

  • Pedal wrench (would love to skip this, but need to box my bike)
  • Chain lube
  • Bike multi-tool
  • Two extra spokes (one for each side of rear) and spoke wrench
  • Leatherman
  • Adventure Cycling maps and compass

    Camp stuff:

  • Mummy bag (REI polar pod )

  • Ground pad (big agnes 3/4 length air pad)

  • Tent (REI sololite)
  • 50 feet of 400lb line
  • Ultralight camp stove (shipping from amazon , buying fuel when I land in seattle)
  • Aluminum pot/pan
  • First aid kit (added water purification tabs, nail clippers, space blanket, condoms)
  • Polyurethane sheets, one sized for ground cloth, one for bike cover
  • Bathroom kit, tube of laundry soap
  • Two one liter bottles for water

    Clothing:

  • Columbia cargo pants with zip-off lower legs. Seem water resistant.

  • Two pairs bike shorts, two cycling jerseys, one long sleeve wicking shirt

  • Four sets undies and socks, one set warm socks
  • Bright yellow windbreaker, seems water resistant

    On my body/miscellaneous:

  • Mirror on my glasses

  • Neon reflective safety vest
  • Masses of sun block
  • Two water bottles on my frame
  • iPhone 4s, Kindle (loaded with Game of Thrones), wall charger

    Undecided

  • Maybe my DSLR, if everything else comes in light enough

    If I have any glaring omissions, or if you can tell me from experience, "Dude, you don't need to bring that!", then I will be super grateful for your insight into this.

u/noburdennyc · 3 pointsr/CampingGear

For $6 you could buy this stove 15 times before buying a $100 MSR once. I'm pretty happy with it. Worth getting and trying for a weekend. if you don't like it it's a great stocking stuffer.

u/Rothbard · 2 pointsr/hiking

Anything MSR cooking is aweaome, and then for a cheap pocket stove, check this out:

http://www.amazon.com/Ultralight-Backpacking-Canister-Stove-Ignition/dp/B004U8CP88/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1344822829&sr=8-10&keywords=pocket+stove

It's a great great value. If you buy that and the MSR skillet with a gas canister, you're good to go for a while.

u/garage_cleaner · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I can't use this much camping on oahu, but this would be great for a camping trip to either Washington or Oregon!

It also has free shipping! I already have a mess kit, and the butane can be obtained at walmart, but I havnt seen such a great price on a camp stove. The reviews make it seem awesome!

Someone else posted this as well, but I also had this on my list.

Story time: On one of our first dates my then boyfriend, now husband, took me hiking on a trail near his house. It's a pretty intense one where people have died getting very lost. We had hiked it before and gotten a little confused and had to climb a very sketchy crumbling rocky hillside and I was concerned we'd get lost again.

I was reassured that he had GPS and we'd be fine and we'd only be out a short while. Well, my husband had no water, and I had a half liter bottle. We started out and it was pretty easy, there are tons of streams in the area but there is a risk of leptospirosis from pigs, so obviously we didn't drink. Needless to say we got lost, his so-called GPS wa his cell phone and there was no reception, we were lost for three hours. He landed up drinking the majority of my water since he sweats a lot, had none and is nearly double my weight.

I was so thirsty in the way back, those crystal clean fast moving waters looked tempting, but I was no fool. That life-straw would have been such a godsend on that hike of lost crazy. We eventually got back drank tons of water, and my husband vowed we'd never go hiking there again unless we had real supplies.

Edit: it's also neat that I have links to other great camp supplies!

u/andr50 · 2 pointsr/camping

It's one of these
It took about 3 weeks shipping, and I had to pick it up from the post office, but at that price it's pretty unbeatable.

u/B0h1c4 · 2 pointsr/backpacking

This is the one that I bought. Works very well...

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004U8CP88/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_DObyub0RXA4HK

It takes like a month to ship though because it comes from China....or Mars.

u/DioTheory · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Bam! $6.78!! :D

It'd be super useful for hiking, too!

Edit: Hilariously, I was browsing through amazon's suggestions for me and found this just before I saw this contest! XD

EDIT AGAIN: Ooh poop, added before today?? In that case, I've got this tea on my Silly Fun Wishlist that's $6.80! :D

u/bdh008 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Woo! Added a while back too!

u/mrcrontab · 2 pointsr/backpacking

7 bucks -- I know a few people that grabbed this and it works fine

u/grumpman · 2 pointsr/backpacking

Looks like an upgraded version of a Jetboil. Nice, I guess if you didn't already have a stove/container system. For 6 bucks you could get a Pocket rocket knock-off. That and a piece of aluminum foil for a wind screen, and while not as efficient, it would get the job done a LOT cheaper.

u/uRabbit · 1 pointr/vandwellers

How about this camp stove and the GSI Minimalist set?

I use them for camping, and altogether they weigh under 3 pounds with a canister.

u/daedelous · 1 pointr/Augusta

For a tent I have the Ledge Scorpion 2. It's light, small, freestanding, has an optional tarp for when it rains, and good ventilation.

You can get a decent sleeping bag at Academy. I have a No Limits 32 degree tent. I wouldn't get anything rated colder than that because they'll be too big. Mine is basically as big as you should ever get. I'd recommend smaller.

For bed roll I I have the Alps Comfort Series. It rolls real flat and is inflatable by mouth.

For cooking system I use this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004U8CP88/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1. It's extremely light and small. Works great with this for cookware: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0037DD3R4/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i02?ie=UTF8&psc=1.

Don't forget about a good backpack and a good water purification equipment.

u/walkinthewoods · 1 pointr/camping

here is a similar knock-off stove for half the price you listed. I have this one and it works well.

I also have this to go with it (look at the related products for in-stock options).

This setup is ok for one person with the right kind of meals. For two+ people I bring a whisperlite with a larger cookset but I'll also mention that my most often and preferred vehicle is the canoe, so weight is less of an issue to me than a hiker.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/ATNOBO13

For hiking shoes, it it recommended that thru hikers have very light boots, or preferrably, trail runners.

For clothing, everybody has their own preferences. Under no circumstances should you hike with anything cotton. Cotton is terrible for it doesn't dry out well, leading to health complications in case of excessive sweat or rain. Hypothermia is bad. So synthetics all the way.

For cooking, a lot of people like the JetBoil Boiler series. Each person has their own preference to what they want in a stove, it depends on what one will be eating. If you're going to be eating nothing but dehydrated food the entire time, then the JetBoilers might suit you better. If you're going to use it moderately less, I'd recommend a cheaper stove (the JBs are expensive). I found an ultralight backpacking stove that had fantastic reviews on Amazon, and is only $15. Check out those reviews! Another option that is cheaper and lighter, and increasingly popular is alcohol can stoves.

You can find directions on how to make can stoves anywhere, but here's a good one. Alcohol is the cheapest and most available fuel, and you can keep in anywhere, like an empty soda or gatorade bottle.

For the miscellaneous and optional item: to each his or her own.

Bring along whatever you like, but remember, you'll be lugging everything 2,180 miles, so pack smart.

Yeah that's what I've heard about wetness, hopefully won't be much of a problem... As for a stove I'm not sure, I was thinking something [cheap and small like this] (http://www.amazon.com/Ultralight-Backpacking-Canister-Stove-Ignition/dp/B004U8CP88/ref=pd_sim_sbs_sg_1) which seems to have pretty good reviews. The Soto looks awesome, would it be a good idea to invest a bit more into a stove or will a cheap one work fine? They all seem to be fairly simple for what they are

u/pujuma · 1 pointr/hiking

haha this one even less
thanks

u/L0gix · 1 pointr/hiking

Can you be more specific as to the particular stove(s) you're looking at on amazon?

A few months ago, I was looking for a cheap backpacking stove and stumbled upon this one on amazon.

Seems to have pretty favorable reviews, and I was going to order it, until I realized that it would be shipping from Hong Kong. If I'd had the time to wait for shipping, I would have purchased it, but I needed something right away.

That being said, I ended up just going to my local REI and picking up the MSR pocket rocket and have been extremely impressed with the performance. It also feels extremely durable, I'd highly recommend it.

Also....that one on amazon has an electronic ignition. It's nice, but the other components will probably outlive it. Plus you're already carrying matches/lighter so it's not like the lack of ignition on the MSR is extra weight.


Just my thoughts!

http://www.amazon.com/Ultralight-Backpacking-Canister-Stove-Ignition/dp/B004U8CP88
Bam. My friend has one and it works just as well as my PocketRocket. The Piezo ignition doesn't work for shit but who cares, you should have matches or a lighter with you anyway. Less than $8. Can't beat it.

u/i_wanted_to_say · 1 pointr/Frugal

This is arguably just as good at a fraction of the price. It runs off the same iso-butane fuel.

u/davidrools · 1 pointr/trailmeals

And a ridiculously cheap alternative. I bought two to bring a backup in case one failed, but the thing is pretty well made, solid, and reliable. Now I don't bother bringing a backup (or I use a soda can alcohol stove). Worst that happened was that it didn't light and I needed to use a match, which is what you'd do every time with the pocket rocket.

u/visionque · 1 pointr/hitchhiking

Open a bank account at Well Fargo or JP Morgan Chase.

Fargo has the most branch offices in the USA and Chase has the most ATM's of any bank. Or open one at both. This will give near universal access to your money without you having to carry excessive amount of cash. Scan all your documents into a password protected file and email that to yourself.

Find opportunities on craigslist gigs for one day cash jobs.

Dumpster diving food, calling on small cafes and shops near closing time and asking for left overs will cut food expenses dramatically. Study up on wild edibles at the library and always ask older people to teach you wild edible plants. People with gardens will give you more food than you can carry if you ask them to trade some labor for food. Often they won't ask anything of you but some will need help changing a light bulb or mowing the lawn.

If you are out early in the morning look for road kill. Smell it and feel the temperature. Is it fresh? Cut off what you want and cook it shortly thereafter. Free food is everywhere.

Must have a means of cooking, stove, fuel, pot with a lid, spoon, knife.

u/15feet · 1 pointr/hiking

I have this stove here, do you know how much burn time I will have with it?

I also have to cook breakfast and maybe lunch, so I was worried.

u/Natejitsu · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

From my experience of being a poor college student who loves the outdoors, take advantage of bargain gear, Craigslist, and thrift stores. Yes, if you buy titanium cookware, an ultralight 4 season tent, and a 0.2 micron purifier you will be good to go, but you will also have an empty wallet.


Some good cheap items that I still use today from time to time:

Stanley Cook Pot from Target/Walmart: This $12-$15 foldable cook pot will snugly fit a small fuel canister and this stove http://www.amazon.com/Leegoal-Ultralight-Backpacking-Canister-Ignition/dp/B004U8CP88/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1451241733&sr=8-2&keywords=backpacking+stove+piezo , plus some aluminum foil and seasoning packets, etc. Find a bowl and cup for cheap and bring some top ramen and oatmeal packets (plus some freeze dried veggies, fruit, and jerky) and you have an entire cooking set up plus breakfast and dinner for somewhere in the range of $30.

For water purification you can buy a Coghlan's purifier and iodine tablets for about $20 combined. The iodine tablets taste terrible, so I would highly recommend having a good purifier being one of your first major purchases (after boots).

Sleeping bag and backpack can be bought from Craigslist or army surplus for cheap. Sleeping bags are rough because the price and quality difference between the mid-end and high-end stuff is huge, in my opinion, but you make do with what you have.

Most other essentials (compass, waterproof matches, paracord, etc.) can be bought pretty cheap. I'm not entirely sure what the opinion of Coghlans is on this sub, but I have not bought a product from them I didn't like. I would not expect to own anything they make for life, but for the money it is usually pretty good.

As far as deciding where to go, places like Reddit are excellent. Look at a Google Maps view of your area and find the green space. Look up any national forests, parks, or monuments in your area and find out what kind of opportunities they have. A good sign of a quality wilderness experience is dispersed camping opportunities, in my opinion.


Lastly, only experience will tell you what you don't need to pack, do need to pack, etc. I used to only bring one compass until I got lost and started doubting my compass. Thankfully my hiking partner had a gps tool, especially since my compass was indeed malfunctioning. Now I have a light compass I bring along that I can use as a sanity check in case I begin to doubt my main one.

u/CultMember68 · 1 pointr/CampingGear

Yes. So will $5 stoves from Amazon.

u/Ken_Wood · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I love camping. This is the coolest thing I can find, hands down. It's just so cheap, and with great reviews. Honestly, a lot of ultralight canister stoves have mixed reviews and are in the $30-120 range. The only part that's keeping me from getting it is that I can't get it delivered to Canada. C'est la vie on amazon.ca. Amazon.com gets all the cool stuff.

I'd have to go with Dead Space 3. I played the first one and loved how terrifying it could be, and I just bought the second one. I'll have a week or two with nothing to do coming up, so I'm thinking of marathoning them.

u/mornsbarstool · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

You can still find those cartridges, but they're really not advisable. If you are in the UK then one of these will really surprise you for value for money.

u/Zooshooter · 1 pointr/camping

Actually, Smokey the Bear is what caused the situation in the West in the first place. The western North American environment is SUPPOSED to burn. It has evolved that way for centuries. Then humans came along and decided "hey, this looks pretty" and started building homes there and got mad when they kept burning down. So we instituted fire protection policies that put out those fires asap and allowed the fuel that they burned up to pile up instead....for 100 years. 100 years worth of fire fuel that SHOULD have been burning off regularly is why the fires out there are so intense and hard to control now.

That being said, DON'T ignore local fire bans. Stoves can be had for, literally, a few dollars. Yes, it's a cheap knock-off of the MSR Pocket Rocket, but I bought 3 and haven't had any failures among them yet. If you wanted to try out that type of stove, that would be my recommendation as it has a built-in spark-lighter which does NOT come standard on some of the stoves that cost 10 times as much.

u/mvmntsofthemind · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

Oh right, well, in case you haven't actually done an overnighter, just expect some bumps, especially if you haven't encountered adverse conditions, say overnight in the rain, or whatever. I guess that's part of the fun.

I have been using an MSR pocket rocket and I like it a lot. As long as it's not super cold where you are, it should work fine. If you want to shed weight, you can try an alcohol stove. I can't speak to it's effectiveness yet, but I'm experimenting with a DIY "super cat" stove on my next trip. But if having hot food is vital to the enjoyment of your trip, you may want to stick with something fool proof like the pocket rocket on your first few multiday trips. If you want to save a few bucks you might try this $6 pocket rocket knock off. http://www.amazon.com/Ultralight-Backpacking-Canister-Ignition-silvery/dp/B004U8CP88/

For water filtration, I bring a sawyer squeeze and aqua mira drops as a backup. Just make sure if you go somewhere where it's freezing, to keep the filter on you to keep it warm. If I was buying something today, I'd get the sawyer mini. Both are 0.1 micron, have a fantastic life span and are easy to operate.

I hike without a beacon but I don't get too far out there either. Just be sure to let someone you trust know when and where you're leaving and when and where you're getting back, and any other details about your trip that you may be able to provide. You probably already know this. Just get out there and see how it goes.

u/houndysmell · 1 pointr/WildernessBackpacking

I love cheap-but-works. We use this 3.9 oz ultra-cheapo from Amazon. Yes, you do need canisters, but it works perfectly. For high altitudes obviously the correct fuel is an issue, as is recycling the cans. Not a "fashionable" choice. https://www.amazon.com/Generic-Ultralight-Backpacking-Canister-Ignition/dp/B004U8CP88/ref=sr_1_11?s=outdoor-recreation&ie=UTF8&qid=1468612734&sr=1-11&keywords=backpacking+stove
