So I was out hiking and I found a rather large chunk of amythest. It's not the best quality but I was wondering how much could it be be worth. It's 7in long and 6 in wide at widest point and weighs about 3.8 pounds
How do you /out/siders feel about camping off of designated campsites?
Went for a nice overnight in the Delaware water gap and had to basically plan the entire hike to end in the campsite along the AT. Along the way I found plenty of places that were more than suitable to set up camp at.
As long as I "leave no trace" and keep my food secure (bear country) then I see no problem with it, especially considering I highly doubt any Rangers patrol half of the trails in that forest
>>815241 >campsite along the AT i sorry but i don't understand. i have not kept up with regulations about the AT. are you now required to camp in only designated campsites? if so than my government has moved one step closer to tyranny. if you are referring to the ethics of camping in non-designated campsites...well that's totally up to you to do the right thing.

>>815241 It's called stealth camping, and is pretty common. It's tolerated some places, and other places it's more strictly enforced. Most ethical campers see no problem with it. The issue really becomes when unethical campers do it, and leave a bunch of bushcrafted bullshit laying around with garbage strewn about.

I murder a couple each night. Now my fruit is finally coming out. They will bite the tomatoes and bark off the roses too. There's probly a nasty little family living under the porch and chewing on the hose. Anybody else have success with pest control in yo garden?
>>813821 Combined spring traps and sticky pads along the walls and rafters near the entry points. Use peanut butter for bait and have found using different traps allows for better genocides of the invasive whiskered migrants
>>813821 I had rats move in once into an area where I couldn't set rat traps. I tried all sorts of things, but what finally worked was a lot of shovel work to make it so that they were contained in a small area, cramming the hose into their den and sitting at the entrance with a 22 loaded with 22 shot shells.
I didn't feel like making two different threads so whatever. >Music What is your favorite music to listen to while out? If you're like me and prefer the natural sounds, what music do you listen to now?
I got this Realistic Channel Pro-2005 off an ex-prepper at a car boot sale today, I've never tried ham radio before and can't work out how to make it scan through frequencies. It searches through memory banks instead. The manual is no help either.
Can someone into prepping or ham radio help me out? I know I need a license to transmit, I can't transmit on it as it has no microphone socket. I just want to tune into something.
>>812201 You need to register yourself for a call #. If you get caught hamming without one you can be in serious trouble. This is not just about transmitting and there is a mike jack on that model. It's the Pro-2005
>>816339 >You never bring fruit to adventures or serious outings. It's basic outdoors 101
No, that is incorrect. You bring exactly what you normally eat at home on any trip.
You shouldn't radically change your diet when you go out or you can suffer GI problems which are not fun when you are out and trying to have fun. It is like those morons who eat normal food all the time then only eat MREs while camping and complain they can't shit for a week.
>>815745 The worst sections were towards the end of the desert, at one point I carried 9 liters of water for a 42 mile dry section. I walked at least half of so cal at night just because I could get away with carrying less water. Not really any bad animal encounters other than getting stung by a bee. No bears or cougars so far. I haven't read wild.
>>815006 Unfortunately North Texas is a pretty bad region to find Psilocybe species. I am almost positive that is not a psychoactive mushroom but to be certain you need better pics, show gills, better pic of the stem and better lighting.
I was told a while ago that this is the place to come to for bikes. I carried a 30lb bag on my handlebar and now the bike rides differently (go figure). I'll carry it on the other side next time to create equal wear. Question: the repair for this is to buy a new handlebar, right? Nothing more could have been damaged than the handlebar, right?
Three women had to be rescued 20 hours after they started tubing the Muskegon river in Michigan. The women started to panic after floating 6 hours, and around 3 miles downstream, when they didn't see their car and it started getting dark. As they tell it, a man assured them they would end up back where they started because the river runs in a circle. None of them being familiar with the area, believed him. Not one of them had their phones and were only found thanks to some drift fisherman who heard their cries for help.
I want a friendly debate on what I should go with. Tent or hammock? I live in BC, Canada and would like to do both winter and summer camping, eventually bowhunting aswell. We definitely have the trees for hammocks however the tops of the rocky mountains are pretty barren and much more suited for tents. I'm sure this has been discussed and argued about time and time again, I was hoping for some solid reasoning why I should go for which. I'm currently leaning towards a lightweight tent/thermabag/sleeping bag set up.
Thank you all.

>>814087 How can a hammock even work with strong winds? I don't own a hammock but I think that if you're getting only one of the two then it's always a tent because a hammock is too restrictive in where and when can you use it.
Still waiting for good shit to post to the Pastebin or Imgur if anybody has contributions. http://www.pastebin.com/u/fishingandtackle https://imgur.com/a/1Xw3N
If you are thinking fishing might be a good hobby but not sure if you will like it, spend at least $250 on a rod and reel just so you can be extra butthurt when your friend is outfishing you on his $50 setup and give up the hobby entirely.

>>814052 >usually (sometimes) bend the hook What does that mean?
Past couple times I have hooked it up, the swivel has bent before anything. Sometimes it is at a knot in the leader, sometimes it pops loose and I have no clue what the hell I got hooked on and why it came loose.
Since the lakes I fish are mostly manmade, I am getting snagged on these rocky ass drop-offs. And it gets snagged somewhere down lower on a pretty much vertical drop-off. When I do that,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /out/, question: A friend of mine loves his gaiters and always tells me, that they are the ultimate addon to ankle high hiking boots.
I'm not so sure about that: At the end of the day they are pieces of denim with buckles. But I want your experience. Does anyone here go hiking with such low (military style, not talking about moist protection gaiters) gaiters like pic related? Is the lower leg support really that much better wearing ankle high hiking boots?

No they are not you fucktard >Does anyone here go hiking with such low (military style, not talking about moist protection gaiters) gaiters like pic related? There's a reason even third world militaries don't use separate gaiters anymore, especially ones made in the 40's >Is the lower leg support really that much better wearing ankle high hiking boots?
