>>777231 Para 2 for me. Both are great knives, though. I had a griptilian for a short while but I prefer the blade shape and feel of the paramilitary. Saying that I only got ny pm2 yesterday and have yet to use it so i hope it delivers haha
I was hiking a local trail when I came across a weird tree a while back. It had 2 lumps at the base and from that day forward I dubbed it the "balls tree". You don't notice it at all and it's about 20 feet from the trail, I found it by just hiking off trail. Well today when I was out hiking I noticed it had leaned over and I thought that maybe the ground saturated with rain water and it just naturally fell but as I looked at the base I noticed saw dust. At the base of the tree in the pic you can see the cut marks then someone piled moss over it to disguise... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>776997 those burls are highly sought-after by carvists, whittlers, and similar woodfærie faggots. kinda sad when they're unscrupulous enough to just poach them like that (i'm assuming they don't own the land)

>>776573 It simply isn't a room plant, it's better to place in a spot in the garden, or at least balcony if you have one. In that case, freezing winter days may be a problem though because the pot might freeze through (planted out in the garden is not much of a problem because the soil only ever freezes a few cm max) but putting into the warm room then is also not ideal
I've never used a bivi but i'm enticed by the small pack size and relative simplicity of them. What's the pro's and con's of going /out/ in a bivi?
I was tempted to throw some cash down on a Rab Ridge Raider (pic related) because it looks so cozy and easy but then I thought perhaps I could just try a cheaper Alpkit Hunka to start with and take my tent fly along with me, which I could throw up over me in the event of rain (I dont own a tarp).
...but then why not just stick with my small 2 man tent as a whole?
>>775171 I want to go bivy for my solo trips because I want to travel lite, go farther, faster, easier. Pack weight just ads up too damn fast. Most small 1-2 person "tents" still push +3 lbs. Bivy is about the only way to get below 2 lbs from what I've seen browsing online. I particularly kike the looks of that model in OP pic. the full length side opening looks awesome
>>774956 Yes. The bears are doing just fine, and sport hunting is millenia-old and has aesthetic and cultural value. If you don't want to rail your mistress on a bear rug in front of the fireplace, you're a gay.
Does anyone here go hiking with historic food items for their provisioning?
I'm rather enamored with making hardtack, and would like to emulate a roman-style diet if anyone knows much about it. So far I am carrying wine, Meat, hardtack, and a smattering of fruit. Am I missing anything?
What's the best two person tent in town?! But seriously something from Amazon that I can order on Prime. Lets say a budget of $70. Also general suggestions on MUST HAVES (whether it be design, space, air holes, or the simplest of color) in a 2 person tent for you personally.
I'm in Colorado, want to go backpacking this weekend. But I don't want to worry about camping on snow or even wearing yaktrax while hiking. Is there anywhere to find out where there's still snow? Is there any general information regarding when elevations at 10,000 feet are clear of snow?
2. Fine as long as you don't rock the boat by having any ideas of your own, you have to be part of the "group" or pretty soon you will find yourself out, hippies might preach love and understanding but they're still people at heart and they can get salty real quick when shit doesn't go their way.
If you can put up with the BS that comes from submerging yourself into a group it's actually pretty nice, but watch out for cults.
Go read up on them. And not just the hype, but people's experiences of the realities.
It usually ends up being shit because people think they can just come in and freeload off others, and that's not how communes work AT ALL. A lot of resentment usually sets in very quickly, followed by ground rules that start the process of it turning into something other than a commune.
Dont do it. Causey hippies are the fucking worst kind of people to be in a squat in the woods with. Call it a commune but thats what it is, a bum squat. Like the other anon said its fit in or get the fuck out and if you take a lady be prepared to be expected to share freely. Some of the most pretentious people ive ever met in my life have been communists. I would suggest snowbirding at slab city. Closest thing to a good commune in the states.
How high are you gonna do the table? I think you should keep it low, like 18" or maybe a but more so you can have the low-slung patio chairs around it.
That's just what I would do. But thinking about it like that, I would prolly do the grill off to the side so people can sit in a circle. Depends if you will mainly chill there or have a fire pit nearby where you would hang out.
Sound cool though. I wish I had friends to hang out with in my beer shelter.
>>781745 Mini fridge idea is tempting, but the idea of having to install 200 meters of cable to power it kills that temptation. Although a place to store the beer would be quite useful. I ain't gonna put the beer on the table - who would want to drink warm beer.
I like the idea of it being low. That way the warmth of the fire reaches people sitting around it.
I planned to have the grill in the center because we usually sit around it, enjoying the fire when grilling.
>>781780 Yeah fridges pull some electricity too so you kinda want to do it right if you run electrical out there at all. If you can get a good deal on one of those big aluminum flip-top coolers, that could be semi-permanent there and look nice. It's no kegerator but will keep the beers cold.
The low seating is key though. Get an outdoor couch and a couple of those wide, low chairs. Sometimes they are wicker and have those cushions you can take inside when not in use.
Where do you live, OP? If you are in the tropics, it might be something like Camillea leprieurii, which is a type of fungus found on rainforest trees. Maybe something similar? Otherwise maybe aerial roots as other anons have said. But I'm no expert.
Okay so lets admit it we're all fucking gear whores here. Share what you've bought, why, and try and keep it civil guys.
I bought pic related because I 'needed' a new EDC torch. I already own a ZL 18650 light but it's too heavy and bulky for EDC, also doesn't have a clip. SC5 on the other hand is an AA light, and pushes almost 500 lumens from a neutral emitter which is suhweet.
For a myog project I need some small nail type tent stakes, easy, normally I'd just get 4 Easton nano pegs and thats it, but the little buggers seem to be sold out everywhere. anybody knows why? Got a good alternative? >Yurop here, couldn't find them nowhere >also pegging general
QUICK PLEASE HELP! First time owning a boat and and i tied it to my dock overnight, and now there is water in the boat! The drain plug was put in before I got it in the water! Is this a normal amount of water after one day and night of being in lake?
Wanted to get up early tomorrow and hit that lake I checked out this afternoon. Got one nice largemouth there after only 10-15min and in the middle of a warm afternoon. I think it has potential if I get there at the right time.
Any update on YuroSaintsFan or Mainebub?
Panda Cory a cutest.

Let's blog about tripfags (sarcasm but not... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I own a Klean Kanteen with wide opening and 1.9l capacity (they have smaller ones of the same type). Wouldn't recommend it as a) the bottle doesn't tighten properly (it leaks), b) it was fucking expensive and c) after 10h your water will have a metal taste. In fact, this was the biggest dissapointment I had regarding to my outdoor gear, as I thought I had bought a product that will last me a lifetime and it comes out to be less funktional than ordinary plastic bottles. tldr: Klean Kanteen metal bottles with wide opening are worse than simple PET bottles.
>>776772 I have a goal zero without the battery pack. I strap it on the outside of my pack and use it to charge my phone and other electronics. Works awesome. I've dropped it a few times and it's a little scuffed up but works fine. 10/10 would recommend.
Going to the wilderness to die, or find a reason to live. I'm at the end of my rope. I've barely been camping and have little to no survival experience. Recommend me equipment if you don't want me freezing to death, its okay if you don't want to spoonfeed me I'll end up buying some random gear anyway that might last me a couple nights.
Well at the very least I would prepare by telling someone where you are going so you have a lifeline when you change your mind about slowly dying of dehydration, hunger, and exposure. Besides that what you should bring depends on how long you are going to be out there. How long?
have you never been grocery shopping for yourself or something? There is no "best" food. If your an adult who is not retarded, you should be able to go on a trip for 2 weeks and not starve. Use common fucking sense god damn what is with all these "what should i eat?" threads lately? How did you make it this far in life without knowing what food to eat?
>>769109 I've always wanted a sheepskin jerkin to wear over my mid layer. I'm a fan of waistcoats in general.
Also a big fan of gaiters but thats' not that unusual. A lot of the time waterproof trousers are OTT, most of the muck I get is on my lower legs, they're the part exposed when I have my poncho on, my legs breath better, and they also stop bugs and loose pebbles from getting into my boots.
>>769132 A jerkin looks close to a double breasted waistcoat, but the problem is you have to go into the store to try it because double breasted anything (especialy waistcoats and vests) is notorious for having a slim fit. I personally really like my leather waistcoat but i have a feeling the wool one would get warm during summer
Who else has an /out/ job they enjoy? 23 and an arborist here. Pretty fun job but living in the west coast it's a lot of rain and a huge learning curve but God damn is it cool to be able to do this every day!
>>756463 I was actually terrified of heights when I got this job. I'll never become a top climber but I can push myself out of my comfort zone before I move on the bigger things Is 25ft off the ground okay for you anon?
