Baffins are absolutely amazing. i was a roughneck for 2 years and only ever had to buy one pair. I still have them packed away since i moved to WA. Buy a size smaller than what shoe you normally wear since you arent supposed to wear them with socks. They have kept my feet warm in -40f weather and they have never leaked. get the kind that seal around your mid-calf to avoid snow in your shoe.
>tfw love outdoors but have bad seasonal allergies
Any /out/doorsmen with seasonal allergies? What do you take and does it work? No antihistamines seem to work for me and I'm thinking of getting immunotherapy as my doctor recommended to make my immune system adapt to allergens.
I get the general idea about backpacking where you use the least costs possible to travel wherever you want to go in the world, but I can't seem to find anything on the internet that clears these questions I still have: (And I'm referring to travel backpacking rather than the hiking variant)

>>654353 I would say most do it in groups to be honest. You have more people to carry gear that's essential, you get to share the experience with others, and you can often save costs.
Regardless of being in groups or not you'll definitely meet a lot of people, especially if you're staying in a hostel, but in really any good city in Europe you're going to find young people who want to party. Friends are easy to make when you're young and good looking and adventurous.

>>654357 So it would't be more or less harder per se if you do it by yourself, just more expensive? I get that now, and thats fine I guess.
Also, I understand that sharing the experience with others is satisfying, I'd like to do that with people I meet along the way however, not my friends at home. (As I don't really have interesting friends at home who'd be down to do backpacking)
What I'm probably trying to get at here is will it be more or less harder to make friends with other backpackers... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>654359 Pretty much yeah. I mean I think it's more fun with a traveling companion, but I definitely ran into people who went solo who were having a good time. If you're not a sperg you can just hang out at your hostel common room and meet people (an offered beer goes a long way) but you can also meet people while out in the city of course, so no it ought not be hard to make friends. Just go through with an open mind, and try not to look like you're an American dad
It's not yet the season for it, but you can already start making plans for the upcoming spring/summer to start making your own treehouse (or for your kids or whoever). Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_ddef7_MXk
This thread seems the most related to what I'm looking for.
We're organizing our scout camp for this summer, we have around 1km of pine pole ranging from 3.5m to 5m and I'm looking for plans or idea for constructions.
Our section is rather small and we only got back into real woodcraft last year with the classic tent on piles. We have to rent a field since we are not allowed to go sleep in the woods or even construct platform between trees (Yet we can bring torches in and play at night). This is what we made last year and our scouts made almost... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have been interested in this film for a while but some anon here alluded to it painting men as rapey. I am pretty anti feminism and feel that actual rape is pretty rare. Will this film make me angry?
Long story short, my wife bought me a dehydrator for christmas and now I'm making my first batch of beef jerky at the moment. Can we have a thread where we collect everything about Jerky like reciepes, tricks, times in the dehydrator and temperatures?!
>>654104 Make sure it gets over 165 degrees F at some point. Trim all visible fat, it goes bad. I like to soak mine in the fridge overnight in whatever flavor I want on it. Try teriyaki, then rolled in coarse ground black pepper. Picante sauce and tabasco work well, too. Sea salt and black pepper are surprisingly good.
>>654325 Either that or the el nino (which isn't to say its not caused by or influenced by climate change, but who really knows) its definitely unusual weather.
While everyone is pretty much aware of our individual insignificance in trying to slow climate change and those who do understand it have a feeling of resignation, I think we take solace in the fact that a warmer climate (I write as someone in the eastern US) is going to be more enjoyable for us to live in, despite the economic, agricultural, environmental...

Is there a modern guide to being homeless? I'd imagine its a lot easier now with advancements in technology and new resources like gps and various apps. Had would a person go about traveling safely back and forth across the US?
>>653934 at 30l they are pretty much all the same. it all comes down to durability. you can get a really light one that will rip, or a really heavy one that will last forever. they are pretty much just bookbags at that size, the only difference is material.
