177 KB,
For me:

Fall and Spring: I love fall, it is definitely my favorite time of the year. I revel when the crows come in. At least a month of orange and yellow leaves everywhere.

Summer: I really don't like the heat, but I enjoy the influx of seasons. So 80s max; low 70s would be great with a shit ton of rain.

Winter: I like the snow, just not excessively. I find it depressing when winter ends late or starts in October. Say a fairly covered ground through December and January.

Maybe Oregon?

Somewhere on the east coast of new Zealand like hawkes bay or the wairarapa. Further north is warmer but rains a lot, the south island east coast is drier but colder in the winter. Look at the climate chart for Hastings on wikipedia

How could I hunt a bit in Europe, without much practise? I'm an okayish archer but I won't be making my own bow, so what are some easy traps, and how do I skin them? What are some stupid mistakes I shouldn't make?

Well it depends on what you want to do if you're doing traps you won't be taking on big game much if not at all. One of the mistakes I made was placing traps near someone elses property (they got mad and I never saw my traps again). You also have to decide how much effort you're going to put in it. Are you going to build your traps from stuff you find in the outdoors, or are you going to buy traps? Once you have that sorted out I would go out in the area you're thinking of trapping and find game trails,...

Make sure that whatever you do is legal where you do it. I live in Sweden where bowhunting is outlawed, doing so leads to big fines or some time in prison.
Trapping here is fine, as long as the trap is approved by Naturvårdsverket ("ministary of nature", something like that) I think and you follow the guidelines/laws.

Hiking shoes aren't overkill at all. I tend to wear them at work.

Buy some Merrell moabs, low rise. Pop a couple Dr. Scholl's gel inserts in them and you'll be walking on clouds.

Who here actively forages or tends while out?

Picked up soaproot still in leaf: a few to make into a brush, a few to eat and the rest is being transplanted to help the health of the existing stand at a new sit that seems to be a good fit for future harvests.

get a heel insert, they're cheap, you place them under your insole and it should take up the volume that is allowing your heel to slip (alternatively get a larger aftermarket insole like superfeet or both)

wearing thick socks or two pairs (so long as its not constrictive) could also solve the problem

So I intend on hiding the backup HD somewhere outdoors in a safe place no-one will ever find it. This shouldn't be too hard a problem, there are an infinite amount of places to hide the HD.

This bait is sex-mode, would probably catch a pike or bass, dogfish if that had them.

Mimics a dark sunfish very well. The main thing with fishing is to mimic what's naturally in the lake and predators snack on. Also, I'd recommend going with smaller than you'd think for lures. A Rapala minnow, rubber worm, some shiners/spinners, a sound bait such as a jitterbug/hoolapopper, and maybe one more shiner would do you good.

You could get by with less probably. Might want to get weedless, but my...

Did lots and lots of dismounted night ops in Kandahar province. Night hiking is not something I would recommend to someone without NVGs. Sure on a clear moonlit night everything is great once your eyes have adjusted to the darkness, but a little bit of cloud cover rolls in a few hours into your march and then it's stumbling around in the pitch black kilometers from anything with only a depth-perception free green-tinted bumwad tube to protect you from tripping and breaking your ass. And that's without roots...

Honestly I never have seen the point of a tear drop trailer.

The only advantage they have is that a motorcycle can tow them.

Other than that, they're smaller than a pop up, more expensive than a pop up, and less versatile than a pop up.

I get there is less set up time with them, but pop ups go up quick.

A teardrop is literally just a bed with some storage in the back. A pickup bed with an air mattress has more room. Sleeping in the back of an SUV with a sleeping pad is more roomoney.

If you're broke, just get a tent. It works just as well.

Hi guys,

So I've been working on a new light weight configuration for hiking trips. My plan was to stop using my big 60L Gregory Scout backpack and instead try to use my 20L Lowe Alpine Z20.

I know 20 liters is rather minimalist for extended trips but I decided I want to give it a try. I added an image for reference on my initial setup for the essentials. One note:
- I might replace the 1l water bottle on the right for the tent currently strapped on the bottom. I will use a 1,5L camel bag with water instead.

I would really appreciate some feedback...

The UL 7 LW is an air inflatable sleeping mat yes, the reason I prefer it over other solutions is that it folds down to about the size of a 1 L water bottle. It's insulating properties are also the shit.

So, /out/, question!

I've got two trips coming up, and the second, while being the less /out/ one of the two, is the one I need some advice for. The plan is to drive from Senegal along the coastal highway of West Africa, with time determining where the ride ends. Given the current season, things may be quite wet there, and I still need

If its very wet you're feet will get wet regardless of whether you have waterproof shoes or not. What I recommend is enough spare socks, talcum powder, and good discipline with foot hygiene.

Personally I'd go for a pair of cotton hot weather boots and change socks regularly.

But as you're riding a motorcycle.. why not just go for a pair of moto boots and a packable pair of trail shoes.

I don't expect my feet to get soaked every single day, but I expect a good deal of wetness nonetheless. Socks and talcum powder are indeed on my pack list.

The thing is, however, that - given the heat - I'm definitely bringing sandals, and I don't feel like carrying both moto boots and trail shoes. So I'm torn as to what kind of second pair to bring.

Depends how you feel on using non Moto boots on the Moto, some riders are paranoid about laces and potential problems if you take a tumble.

If you're on your bike a lot I'd defo go for Moto boots. As to sandals or trail shoes, how much hiking away from your bike will you be doing and do you like hiking in sandals?

I browse /out/, /p/, /diy/, /mu/. I read book about stuff (non-fiction only). I'm constantly either making plans or organizing my thoughts for to make plans. I fap. I think about how sad I am that things have worked-out the way they have, and make plans to fix things. I miss people that I don't see or know anymore. I yearn. I watch M*A*S*H.
