The last one died. I have a question that might not be /out/ but I figure you guys might have an opinion one way or another. What does everyone think about the Paris Climate Change Conference? What do you want to see and how likely do you think real progress is?
Third world governments don't give a fuck. They will keep destroying the world for a cheap buck. And as long as first world activist think hashtags will effect government policy's we won't be able to change things either.
>>638779 I don't think that's very accurate. Lots of really poor countries are the ones that are getting flooded or extreme drought as climate change continues. The problem is that poor countries don't have much power to do anything as they aren't big emitters and don't have much sway with China, US and Europe. Also, going clean costs money that they don't have.
>>638784 As China becomes a less financially feasible place for mass production we will look to even poorer countries. Kicking off "industrial revolutions" in t these corrupt countries. Even if these countries legislate initiatives to prevent pollution it doesn't mean the industry will put them into practise. I watched a Vice on pollution in China. There industries dump chemicals that will strip the skin right off you directly into water ways. There are laws in place to prevent this, they even have equipment... Comment too long.

Here's the skinny of it - I'm lost. My wife and I both fell for the college meme and took out student loans to make it happen. I went into culinary arts, but that industry blows. I did it for 10 years and I wanted to start a family, restaurant life will not allow me to spend a lot of quality time with my kids. I got out and now work a desk job. My wife's degree is anthropology, so she has no hope of finding a job in that field and we both feel really dumb.
Anyway, I have realized over the past few years that I have an indefatigable love for nature. I have... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>638619 I could totally see you combining your green thumb with your cooking background and making some sort of restaurant or business selling food that you grow and cook. Reminds me of this place I visited in Rotterdam.
First ever post, wanted some advice/ panoramic perspective on this homemade black pipe shotgun I found. The only purpose it's for is hunting and self defense if shit were to hit the fan. It's really cheap to make and is pretty straight forward, see pic. I think you could make this really small and lightweight, illegal but wouldn't matter in the hypothetical shit-uation. Thoughts?
Noisy criket made the video on YouTube I screen shotted thus from "black pipe shotgun"
Hey guys, doing some camping with my friends the next weekend (the area is safe, no bears, wolves). Truth is, i've never camped before, i made a to bring-list based on my common sense. Do i need anything else? advices please? also, how do i start a bonfire? Also, i think its going to rain lightly
To bring list Flashlight Sleeping bags camp tents snacks lighter water
How are you getting to your campsite ? Drive the car up, hike in, boat, etc ? If you have transport bring a chair, blankets/ old comforter / pillows, bring toilet paper, and its dark as fuck in the woods at night so bring extra flashlights and what not.
General advice: -avoid dead fall above your tent location -try to make tent location as level as possible so the rain fly will work properly -poke around where you set up your tent and remove any rocks for comfort and also so you can actually get your tent pegs in the ground -bring garbage and zip lock bags,...

I'm having a hard time deciding on which tarp tent to get. I'm concerned about condensation due to the single-wall design, so I'm leaning toward pic related (double moment). However I'm not sure how legitimate my concern is so I'm also considering the Stratospire 2, Squall 2, and Rainshadow 2. If anyone has experience with tarptent and can tell me about the model you have I would really appreciate it.
>>638221 Also, the reasoning for the Double Moment is that it has a fully separate rainfly and the roof of the interior component is solid. Their other tents are either single wall or the interior has a mesh roof.
I'm not really concerned about weight, since even the heaviest tarptents are still pretty light. The biggest limiting factor is probably making sure that I have sufficient room to set it up in the woods.
Pretty much every dog has sharper ears than you. If you want the dog to hunt with then the best one depends on what type of hunting dog you want. There are a bunch of different types sighthound, scenthound, retrievers, points, etc. Then you have to train them from birth to do what you want, and even then they might still suck at hunting.
I don't think a dog will be much help keeping you safe from bears or wolves though.
I have always wanted to get into something like this. It seems like such an accomplishment to summit a peak and would love to be very appreciative to be able to do this one day. Question is..how do I as an amateur with no experience. I know I would like to make all 7 summits.The way I figured to do so is by starting at the lowest altitude mountain Kosciuszko and move up the list. Problem is I know Kilamanjaro is not a technical climb therefore making it semi ideal for beginners but is the 4th highest. Maybe someone can shed some light on this.
>>638135 Yeah but thats not what Im asking. Sure I can go with a expedition with no exp and have literally no know how..or I can do the reasonably smart option and start at the beginning. Thanks for the input though. I do know what expeditions exist to bring beginners up top but I just dont feel that would be the appropriate route.
Hey guys, I've been on this board for a while now and I'm looking into careers in forestry. I'm Irish and there's opportunities for studying abroad like America. What can I expect from this kind of job area?
Hey Sc/out/s I am looking for a handheld GPS I can use with international maps. I have been looking at the Garmin GPSMAP 62 0r 64 series. Does anyone know more about these? Can anyone explain why the old model 62's cost more than the new model 64's?
62fag here. Get the s model, base model lacks extendability and barometer / compass; higher models have a topo map already installed and / or a useless camera.
Display is tiny but well readable even in bright sunlight. Routing works best for max 20 miles when using the hardware device, no limits when using pc software (besides very derpy experimental routing).
A modern phone would outperform it in terms of CPU power, but will only be useful with power tank.
64 should be a step up, so wondering as well about pricing.
