I saw the new Google interactive slideshow that replaces the logo since August is National Parks Month in the US. In a few of the slides, they had a girl(?) in a wheelchair.
How do they expect us to believe that someone in a wheelchair was able to traverse through the paths? Are there some kind of tread attachments for wheelchairs or something? I remember seeing those Hoverround commercials where a bunch of old people scream out "HOVERROUND!" at the edge of the Grand Canyon or something, but how realistic is that?
Does /out/ listen to music while out? Do you play music, either to yourself or with friends?
I can sing and play basic rhythm guitar and whenever my friends and I get together for something I usually end up playing a few songs. Marty Robbins and Johnny Cash are some of my favorites. Sometimes we'll get a few of us who play guitar together and make sweet six string music.
>>844815 Last Quidmas when we did /out/ Secret Santa a good anon bought me a tin whistle to play while /out/ and I've had great fun playing it these last months! I'm not good, but as a multi-instrumentalist it's something really fun to do, and it's not terribly challenging. I have a couple harmonicas as well but that actually takes real work to master.
>tfw two days til the weekend I can almost taste it. I need to figure out how to lose my job and get unemployment so I can go fishing daily for a few months. It's hard to even stay out until sunset without sleeping through my alarm the next morning.

Depending on your fishin holes, you may want to go a little heavier on the line. Idk if it's just me, but going heavier with the line on casting reels doesn't seem to impact casting distance nearly as much as with spinning reels.
If you aren't going to be hooking into lilly pads a ton, 15lb will be fine.
I'm hitting a lake Saturday that I've caught bass, pickerel and plenty of panfish in before. I just checked online and apparently there are brown bull cats as well. I'm taking the canoe out so I can hit the bottom in the middle of the lake. If I'm trying to get cats on the bottom, am I better off with nightcrawlers or chicken liver?
I am planning on doing a thru hike of the AT next season and I have begun creating a tentative daily schedule for myself. I came across one a few days ago that I was going to base mine off of, but I cannot seem to find it. It was a daily schedule for a 180 day hike. Has anyone seen it?
Also, I have the AWOL guidebook and I've been looking at all the towns that you pass by while hiking. Some of them are limited to one or two gas station-type places, of some sort of "market". Do these places usually have enough as far as a food is concerned? Mainly talking... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Actually, I just found it, but the question remains regarding the types of food one would find in the gas stations and markets close to the AT. Do they cater more towards hikers because of the proximity?
I hear most towns on the trail have good resupply, though up north the same stuff gets expensive as fuck. And yeah, places do tend to stock items with hikers in mind. I haven't seen anything really that makes me want to send a box anywhere, could be a bad move but i'm not going to bother. I'm leaving early March, soo pumped
>>844588 Most towns on the trail have a lot of stuff geared towards hikers. If a certain gas station is the closest gas station to the trail, you can bet they stock stuff for hikers. Even if they don't have much, they will be able to point you where to go. They are very, very used to hikers coming and going.
Thougt got bitten by bug when i returned from camping cause around eye was puffy. Took some benadryl went to bed. Wake up today take shower notice its now on my arm, balls, and eye is swelling up. Wat do?
DUDE wash everything that may have been in conctact with the urushiol oil. Re-exposure is a huge part of nasty breakouts. Clothes, pillow, tent, or whatever might have oil on it needs to be washed. You might have more and more exposure appear on your skin over the next couple days from any re-exposing that happened after the initial brush with the ivy. Some people have breakouts increase for 2-3 weeks because they have oil on their steering wheel or something and don't know it.
Also, if it's on your eye you'll probably want to see a doc just to be safe.

>>843809 It looks like a 'free recovery await rescue' sign from the UK, they have them on particularly dangerous stretches of motorways (freeways/interstates). If your car breaks down they send a free tow truck to pick you up instead of you having to leave your vehicle or walk along the side of the road.
>>843333 Exactly. Are you spraying your glasses at home down with bleach after every use? No, you're running them through a dishwasher or hand washing them with some soap. Then you stick them back in the cupboard.
My situation: Anyone have some tips for me? Hey /out/, first time poster on this board. I live in San Diego county and try to grow all sorts of vegetables and other things in my garden, Due to the very high temps (regularly 85 and over) and very bad drought (flooded during el nino in april but no rain at all since) my crops have a very hard time sprouting and growing. I already mulch and water deep and for a long time. The garden gets some shade from small trees nearby.
>>843274 Make better soil, yours is probably pretty dead. And add manure + water over top of the sprouts, it should becime a sort of cake layer. Or Add small twigs and dead leaves as a top layer, or more mulch. Dont water them to the point of soil erosion.
>>843013 at this point I only masturbate once a week. getting old sucks.
but even when I was a 14 year old boyscout I could go a week without jerking it. just get exhausted during the day.
now if we are twlling stories avout the nastiest places we ever pounded one out I bet I got you fags beat.
I was at this little hilltop base in afghanistan. cia type shit, the helicopters. so we are sleeping in a tent with 20 ither dudes when we get to sleep in base. even the showers are crowded due to water supply.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Okay guys I'm stumped. I live in Charlotte, NC and for the past few weeks, at night, there's a loud "REE" call from the trees out behind the complex, about every 20-30 seconds, the call lasts for a brief 1 or 1.5 seconds.
I'm utterly at a loss to identify this, can anyone help? It literally just goes "REE" one time with no other sound.
So with the all the homeless/NEET/ohgodIhatemylife threads on /out/ I thought I'd start a general thread for seasonal /out/ work.
Guide companies, ski resorts, summer camps, remote lodges, etc. It's a great way to see awesome places and I thought it would be nice to have a thread where people can ask questions, provide resources and share experiences.
I did it in my younger days and decided to get back into it after being really unhappy with my 9 to 5. I spent the last winter I'm Utah skiing and I've spent this summer working for a rafting company... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The internet is your friend. I get most of my work through a website called coolworks. You can sort by state, country, job, season, etc. They'll tell who provides housing, who provides training, etc.
I know /out/ is pretty anti-social media, but facebook is actually a really good tool for keeping on touch with friends, employers, etc.
Certain skill sets are always going to be in demand, like guiding or kitchen experience, but even if you're a total NEET get your foot in the door somewhere. Washing dishes, scrubbing floors, answering... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I am in school for a BS in forestry and a minor in environmental science. My ideal job would be doing something not many people are willing to do. Would really like to do research and stuff like that (Going to remote places for long periods of time).
What might be some obscure jobs to take? How difficult/what kind of credentials do you need to get a job as a fire lookout?
Hey /out/ Armyfag here, I was wondering if there was anyone around or used to be around the Fort Bragg/Fayetteville, North Carolina that could suggest any good trail hikes or any scenic drives for the weekends? I know there's not a mountain in sight, and that bums me out, but I'm trying to make due.
>>842594 I'm at Seymour Johnson, and for weekends I head out to the Uwharries. 2 hour drive from here. Probably less for you. You've got acres of forestry land out there, hike/hunt/target shoot all you want. Abandoned gold mines to explore (pic related) and the whole of the uwharrie river to fish.
