cross contamination is a big part of it. you might walk through the shit and a few hours later reach down and adjust your laces. in any case you must live in a pretty poison ivy-y area to "always" get a rash. don't touch anything, don't crawl into bed with your boots or hiking pants on, etc.
>>898236 How do they keep price gouging? Through corporate loyalty programs. You would not believe how many people shop atREI and pay full price because they think it's something greater than just another store.
Also, well yea, LNT requires you to have your own gear. If every visitor to national parks did bushcrafting horseshit, camp areas would be trashed.
>>898236 Good luck with the new MYOG thread; my last one went ok but the next iteration will be on /diy/. How much sewing XP you got, Opie? I ask because backpack is a pretty daunting task if you're new at sticking fabric together with thread.

I was walking with my doggo when I stumbled across this sign. Don't really know what does it mean, turned back just in case it meant private property (private=magán in hungarian, that could've been what the "M" meant) didn't want them to shoot me and my doggo.
Z-lite (rectangle one) >folds up easy and lays dead flat >odd shape to store >can rig it as backpack frame or back cushion >feels more comfortable/cushy
SOlite (round one) >rolls nice and tight with strap >doesn't always want to lay flat (end curls) >warmer? >firmer, not as cushy
I sleep on my stomach so I prefer the cushier Z. But they're both great pads, I wish they had better names. Their price/weight ratio is great, and they're pretty bombproof. I prefer storing them on pack like pic related versus the horizontal way. Either way works, I just prefer the slimmer silhouette. It helps to get soft ground for a campsite, they're not great on super hard dirt or pavement.
I have the SOlite. Rolling up is the worst feature of it, in my hammock it's a pain to keep under me but once I've got it there it keeps me warm. Also it ties on fine but it's a bit on the bulkier side compared to square pads.
been using boots from the swedish military til now, a 1 layer leather boot but they went missing recently
now i need to buy me a new pair of boots for the first time and what should i think about? from what i hear and read online, gore tex and such are a big no-no though 90 % of available boots are gtx. and the rest are twice the price.

I have a basic set of Flexcut carving knives, and that + sandpaper are the only tools I use at the moment. I have a set of small gouges but they came from the store with terrible edges on them and I need to learn how to sharpen them properly before I can see doing anything with them.
I carve all sorts of wood as I am still learning its attributes. I've tried cedar, alder, birch, maple, hemlock, fir, basswood, and elm so far. The hardwoods are my favorite.
I've only been carving for about a year, producing mainly Christmas ornaments as I am planning on... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Eurofag here. Tell me about the Great Lakes. When I see them on a world map I think of them kind of like the Caspian sea or even Baltic sea. Is there shipping on them? What about going /out/ on the lakes?
>>895385 There's a ton of shipping on them, hell if your country isn't landlocked I guarantee that a boat from it has come up the St. Lawrence. I live at the western most tip of Lake Superior and the possibilities of doing /out/ activities is pretty much endless. Canoeing, fishing, sailing, even surfing.
/k/ here, I have very little gear, all left over from my BSA 5 years ago.
I'd like to get set up with some starter gear to go solo-camping with. Nothing that expensive, I don't even know if I'll like solo camping for 1-2 nights since im a huge night pussy, but I'll have a gun so that will help me sleep.

Im living on 100 acres and beyond that is crown land. I plan to have a hobby farm that will feed me 90% of my calories... not bothering with the strict offgrid pipedream. Only keeping to local species lets say I introduce flocks of partridge to the property... always have lots of seed all over the place, but just let them do their own thing and hunt them like fair game.
besides that...think about more creatures... boars or turkeys.... wolves are native to this area but were hunted during a cull in the 1800s how... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>898532 The partridges would overpower the MGTOWs and run them off. MGTOWs are notoriously bad at life, otherwise they'd be functional members of society instead of the whiny little kissless faggots they are.
I strongly urge you to not introduce non-native species. Reintroducing exterpated species would be really cool but the chance that they would fare well is slim. Odds are that the things that originally drove them away are still there.
Go from one ar15 company to another. Reasons were I felt my old boss had poor character and didn't treat customers with dignity. Hear new boss talk about customers and realized I fucked up in picking my new employer. Realized I gotta watch out for my manager as his desire to suck the bosses cock is tremendous. Probably willing to take 80 gallons a minute of none stop cum. I'm 35, and it's very common for me to have bosses younger than I am that may never learn what dignity is all about.

I did that except i started by throwing all the bullshit out and never made myself a part of it.
Living /out/ is better than living /in/ Everyone on /k/ is right wing as fuck (or at least shitposts that way) and if you dont share the dream of working your life away to buy more expensive bullshit then you are a whiny liberal cuck bleeding out the vagina about whatever is wrong in your life. Cure it with more funz they say, worship the god emporer because elections only matter as far as gun rights. You should look at the nuggetfest pics before taking /k/s advice on anything.

23 and I feel all too similar. life is too precious and short to not do what makes you happy. ive come to the conclusion that people are going to think I'm crazy for possibly throwing away a "successful" career to live the /out/ life I live. but I am damn happy with it, fuck what others think. It's never too late to change up your lifestyle.
Actually, regardless of the river - if you're traveling from Vienne, Austria to the Black Sea you're in for a multi-week excursion. I mean just based on Google Maps I'm seeing it's ~500 miles from Vienne to the Black Sea if you travel a straight line, but this river winds and turns all over the place so your trip will be significantly longer than 500 miles.
You'd also be traveling across country boarders. I don't pay attention to world affairs so I don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
anyone know good techniques for staying hygienic whilst on long trips, planning on camping along the pennine way and would preferrably wash with stream water. anyone have good ideas for staying clean when /out/?
>>897763 Did a long distance hike in Scotland this summer. We had degradable soap with us (pic related) and washed our heads and armpits in streams every now and then and when the weather was decent we washed more thoroughly. Sometimes we washed our clothing in the streams and let it dry hanging from our backpacks.
Other than that having baselayer clothing made from wool really helps reduce the odor!
>>897697 I have a 1.7 litre Kelly Kettle - I generally just use it for boiling water which it does extremely well.
Feeding sticks in the top makes it easy and efficient to use.
I've never cooked on it but I believe there are attachments that sit on top but I can't imagine it being all that good because you'd have to keep taking them off to fuel the fire....? Maybe someone else has more experience than me on this.
