First post here. This is my main /out/doors knife (not my picture). The handle comes with no sealant, finish or anything of the sort. Will treating it with just polyurethane protect it? Thanks!

Yeah its just personal preference. You can also use boiled linseed oil. Or vegetable oil (blade and wood) or fix'n wax (blade and wood). Or you can really use any furniture / wood sealant you want.
anon we have knife general, you should have asked there, but since you created the thread already you can you boiled linseed oil, it will work good.
But a can of Minwax polyurethane will be fine? Because that's all I have
I apologize. I think I probably just flew past it. Thank you though.

Anyone have advice?

Tl;dr: asking for advice on growing plants indoors using aquaponics and LED lighting

Aquaponics creates excellent plant growth in a limited amount of space. But you live in a sunny, warm country with plenty of farmland. So whatever you grow will probably cost more than your competition so what's your angle? You need to figure that out first before you start delving into what grow-lights or aquaponics system you should buy.

What kinds of specialty produce can you grow that isn't being covered by the market already, but yet has enough demand that you can sell everything you produce?

just read up man

Not green. You know how plants look green to us? That's because they reflect green light. Stick with red, warm white, cool white, blue. Do research wavelengths, see what works best for photosynthesis (general ranges as well as individual plant preferences).

I gues on half the trips one latches on.

Last one that got me crawled in my butcrack and I had to ask a buddy to remove it. It was kinda awkward.
Totally not gay.
Literally every fucking time, my dogs have spot on stuff so the ticks leave them alone but lucky me I get all the attention. Anyone got any suggestions to keep them off? DEET is fucking useless.

Found in a river on a mountain

Looks like glass to me.
Its river glass. Broken pieces of glass that gets polished by the water over time till its smooth. I have a jar of it from my childhood.
I'm leaning towards quartz because of the amount of conchoidal fracturing. A sure way to test is by actually scratching it on glass. Quartz has a hardness of 7, glass is 5.5. I took an intro to geology class.

hey /out/ this is my first time on this board (yes I'm a newfag don't waste my time with silly shit comments) anyway I'm not exactly what board this would fall under so I was wondering what info you can give me to properly equip myself with gear to survive a nuclear fallout and tips on surviving radiation. I believe in the next year or so Americas probably going to get hit and I plan on making a run for a safe country after world war 3. How should I plan to stay alive in the environment because I may have to walk to South America or some shit

>don't waste my time with silly shit comments
Why would any one on this board feel compelled to share research with you when you haven't contributed a thing? Google it, we are not here to be your personal secretaries. Good luck surviving the nuclear holocaust dumb ass.
I've already googled a ton of info on surviving nuclear radiation. Non of it is going to help me survive the outdoors.
Power armor is your best bet. Traveling mostly at night helps you sneak past the super-mutants (I'd avoid attacking them directly until you level up a few times and manage to find some decent firepower). Keep to high ground, not only does it give you a tactical advantage and a better view, it also helps you avoid the mirelurks. Those bastards are worse than radscorpions. Taking the "animal friends" perk early will keep you safe from Yao Guai.

Good luck and watch out for deathclaws!

I'm planning a 1-2 week road trip to the west/south west in the spring. I live in Wisconsin, and am looking for the best places to do day hikes out there. There's so many spots I'm interested in, I don't know which to pick. Here are some places I'm interested in checking out, let me know which one of these is the best because I can only see a couple of them.

Canyonlands - Utah
Grand Teton - Wyoming
North Cascades - Washington
Santa Fe Nat. Forest - New Mexico
San Juan Mountains - Colorado
Medicine Bow National Forest - Wyoming...

Why does everyone on /out/ end up homeless. I've seen "about to be homeless" threads every day for the last month or so. What's going on?
27 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.
Its really not that bad. Check out /r/almosthomeless and /r/homeless
I think that people who are about to be homeless come here looking for outdoors advice. It's not that they browse /out/ and then end up homeless.
This x1000. If any one them had experience /out/ they would probably not be asking us how to go /out/. They might be asking more urban specific questions but not 'how do I survive the winter?'

I love listening to bands like Agalloch when /out/, really gives you that lonely forest feel and makes you appreciate the woods, really changes the experience for me. Also Empyrium.
Awww shit is it time? Love me some music threads.

Long story short I'm going to end up homeless for awhile and don't have money to stay at a hotel. How is stealth camping in Canada?

My plan is to stealth camp in the wilderness, hunt wild game for food and going back to town once in awhile for supplies. I don't plan on going near cities.

What i'm afraid of is getting mugged and confronting rangers. Has anyone done this before? How long will I last in the Canadian wilderness senpai i need to know before I start buying gear.

Bump, good luck and stay strong OP
suck up your pride and apologize to your parents.
You're fucked. You obviously have no idea what you're doing or how to do it.
Just fucking get a job and live in a tent in the woods.
I see all sorts of lazy fucks around town bumming it. Maybe tthey earn enough to not need a job, but they sure as shit aren't "hunting wild game in the woods" and shit.
Get some min wage shit job, buy food, bum it in the woods or around town.
You're not going to last a week in the wilderness.

dear /out/

im thinking of starting a hobby as a amateur astronomer. I have always enjoyed space and want to start this up.

anyone on this board an astronomer or do this as a hobby already?
any tips or gear that is cheap/helpful.

I currently live outside Philadelphia so light pollution in my backyard is an issue, but Lancaster has always shown good promise.

You should start with a decent pair of binoculars (I have 7x50s) and a star chart app for your phone, to learn your way around the sky. Then think about getting a telescope.
