Done tons of climbing and investigsting old buildings and train tracks. Also know the entire storm drain system of my city. I can travel 10 miles across my city without being seen at all. You have to keep moving though because you run out of oxygen quickly in the tunnels and get dizzy.
I had these cacti for a pretty long time now, but around 2 years ago, some kid fucking mutilated one of them (the one on the right) with a knife. Ever since, it never really healed and i'm not even sure if it's still doing fine. Is it still healthily alive or have i wasted 2 years of my life watering a dead cactus?
What do you do in this situation /out/? Keep in mind you just chucked your driver into 4ft of untamed and overgrown foliage. Do you call the phone number on the back of the disk and/or drop it off at the lost disc collection box Or do you take what is rightfully yours, it's the nature of the sport.
Add my snapchat I do hikes everyday new rivers waterfalls and places everyday! Maybe one of the users of 4chan will contribute snap cash so I can do more of these adventures and show amazing parts of the outdoors and let you live my life through a video! I'm a free runner so I jog up mountains then explore as I go.
I do porn and construction for a job so my snapchat is always funny lol.
>Mepps are still GOAT I should've gotten out fishin' this afternoon since it was nice and cloudy all day. Had to catch up on that Sunday night DVR action though. Silicon Valley amirite? Maybe tomorrow I can get off work at a reasonable time. It's nice that the June sun stays up until close to 9pm, but that means I get home from sunset fishing way too late when I have to wake up at 4:30am.

Mostly for leaders, but I'm curious if anybody has run it as main line too. I use Vanish for leaders, and had #4 Vanish on an ultralight but ended up going to braid because it is so much easier to work with. Vanish hasn't failed me for leaders, but in another 5 years when I finally kill that 250yd spool of #20 Vanish, I may try something else.
>>787506 i use 15 lb stren flouro for pickerel leaders, and it works great, have had some big pickerel on there that havent bit through, , though ive had pickerel go clear through 8 and 15 lb mono easily , waay too stiff to use as a main line
>>787460 I bought the Bass Pro RedHead brand spray like that for my knock-off Tims.
One application helped a little, but after two applications and it got much better. My main problem was the morning dew soaking into the fake leather or whatever they are made of. If I totally submerge them, my socks will still get wet. But I can now walk around the grass in the morning for an hour or two without getting wet socks. And I sprayed them quite a few months ago and haven't had to do it again yet.
tl;dr: Don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've been using a Fenix E21 for years and it's done the job, and I was planning on buying another to leave in my car but it turns out they're discontinued. So now I'm thinking about buying a Fenix LD09(pic related) but wanted to see if there were any better alternatives.
I don't actually have a picture of it because it's laying in my truck, but I've been using this streamlight for a little more than a year.
Just clip it somewhere on your chest or belt and go, the clip is actually pretty sturdy, I've even run and had it stay on me. It has a good beam, there are better lights indeed, but this has never left me wanting.
I know what you're thinking, and a head lamp would probably serve me better as far as wearable lights go, but I am subject to the rule of cool, as we all are.

That's shitty man. Why don't you start a petition with some really good literature advocating the preservation of said land? Talk to people about it. Even though your intentions are solely for yourself it's also a benefit for the wildlife.
Revisited the abandoned Carolin Gold Mine in southern British Columbia last weekend and completed exploring all 10 kilometers of tunnels and caverns within the mountain, took about 7 hours total (on foot). Dumping photos, most of them taken by me over the last year of visits, some historical photos I've found online, and some good photos taken by others who have explored the site.
This is a general abandoned mines thread, feel free to post about mines near you.
>>767785 The mine was only fully operational between 1982 and 1984, eventually closing down due to a variety of factors, mostly market related. The property was eventually purchased by New Carolin Gold Corp but has never re-entered operation, although the organisation does survey the site on an annual basis and is actively involved in researching the land. The mine is about ~8 kilometers up a logging road that wraps around the mountain only secured by a single gate that is open year round except for the days that New Carolin... Comment too long.

Ok guys I need some help and I think this is the right board. I need to acquire some land as far from civilization as possible in central/eastern Kentucky. What's the first step? I don't need more tha 10 acres.
What do you guys use to deal with pic related when you're innawoods? Tips and tricks for dealing with bugs of all shapes and sizes, particularly black flies and ticks which are going to be a problem for me soon.
A team of mountaineers became lost and stranded after important cairns along their trail were demolished by self-centered wannabe backpackers. Luckily they had a wood burning USB charger on hand and were able to call of rescue, but backpackers really need to be more responsible
That's it. It is settled. The best knife on the planet is the Ontario Ranger TFI. With the Ontario RTAK II as a close second followed by the RAT-7.
Want a hatchet? Done. Want a pry bar? Done. Want to break bones while cleaning a kill? Done. Want something still sharp enough to skin any animal after crazily grinding the blade against concrete? Done. Want a perfectly weighted and indestructible blade? Done. Want to bushwhack? Done. Want to cut something to a surgical degree? Done. Want to save weight in your pack because you only need one knife?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm starting an internship as a national forest river ranger and need some boots to wear. I have no experience with them so have just been looking. I've heard good things about Justin's and wolverines, what does /out/ suggest?
>>785106 I suggest you look at individual boot reviews. Wolverines have some real pieces of shit that I hated working with for just a day. I personally like Columbia, but I don't wear 8 inch boots just for hiking.
I would suggest testing your first pair of boots. Considering they should be light, yet gripful. Go down with the price, maybe around 100$? Then invest in some good footrub & merano working socks. Working in Boots can be a real torment, so take care of your feet! >image related the Irish Setter 8", may be a little too hefty in price. I would even consider it being it too professional.
