so i scored a marmot precip at the thrift store, but its lining is completely fucked. i figure i have 2 choices: >duct tape patch pros: this will be the cheapest way to get it back near its original capability cons: lining will be like 25% duct tape, and at all the places i'll notice it most (collar, wrists, waist), heavy and lumpy >strip out lining pros: it becomes super light and packable cons: it loses 90% of its rain resistance
i'm leaning towards stripping the pu lining and having... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>773244 thanks, but i think you're underestimating what i meant by "completely fucked". it's *completely* fucked-at least 15% of the polyurethane lining has already peeled off, leaving just the outer nylon layer, especially where it's really needed. like across the upper back and shoulders. a little seam sealer and waterproofing rehab won't accomplish much.
i put a small piece of duct tape on part of the exposed inside surface of the outer nylon layer. it's been there 24 hours, and a just pulled a corner up to check it out. it stuck well and hasn't left any residue. i think i'm going to leave it another 24, and if it still doesn't leave any residue i'm going to try rebuilding the polyurethane liner with duct tape. if i get it on okay i'm going to check the comfort (including with a loaded backpack) and if that goes okay i'll take it in the shower to see how it seals and how...

So I bought the bivy layer from pic related and I love it. I really like the heavy duty construction. I wanted to get the whole system but after seeing how crappy the bags were I didn't. So here's my question, how hard would it be to to change the fill in a milsurp patrol bag to down? If not do you know of any quality bags that are a bit more rugged at the expense of weight and would work with this system?
Hey /out/ This coming weekend I'm planning on taking my gf on a camping trip, but it's forecasted to rain all weekend. She's not liking the idea of camping in the rain/possible storms. So do you guys have any advice to make camping in the rain half decent or should I just scrap the trip?
For over a year I have been searchig for this shoe model Timberland Vibram Gore tex low ankle pic related, but i fail at finding this specific shoe. There is not a single store or place on internet tbat has this and i need 2 new pairs i cannot imagine wearing other shoe othing fits like this one i bought 10 years ago PLEASE.HELP ME FIND THIS PLEASE
I rolled for this board to browse for 24 hours, so you guys like being outdoors? I have a 700 square feet garden but it is overgrown with weeds so i don't go in there because im afraid of ticks, these beast can give me serious health issues as i read.
So what should i do to get outside for the first time in years? I have national parks here, fields, seas.
>>773675 Catfish will go for anything dead or alive if it is sitting on the bottom. Half a bluegill, chicken livers, nightcrawlers. But my favorite is probably pic related. Grab a jar of dip bait, not that dough bait that comes in balls. And then get the dip bait rigs for like $2 or $3.
Tie up the rig, put a stick through the little tube on the rig, and coat it in dip bait.
Peps you finally posted a girl I would wife in a heartbeat.
>>773576 >I wonder why braid doesn't dig into itself on spinning reels like that. It does on my reel with 12lb braid, but you won't notice on cast. I've just noticed if I'm letting it free spool to get the lure to the bottom it's sometimes dig into itself.
Also, does anyone else thing meme caster give you more feedback related to sensitivity? I feel like the do, but maybe... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Like the title says, I'm a /out/ retard. I want to rent a cabin for a week with my m8 and some bitches. It needs to be somewhere on the east coast US, in the woods with some cool spots to check out. Does anybody have any recommendations for locations?
May already be booked, central Pennslvania adjacent to Cook Forest State Park (old PA lumber industry) - http://macbethscabins.com/ go hiking, tubing whatever....Not a huge forest but big enough to get lost.
heh, when i lived there that meant loading up in my buddies k5 blazer with some metallica and a shitload of miller and jack and going mudding where they clear cut the swamps around houston for building tracts.
good times, good times...
but for proper /out/ you're probably screwed. sorry.
>long post inbound So I don't get /out/ much but I figured this was the only place people might know what's going on or how to help. Today I just noticed a small, white mushroom growing inside my White's tree frog's tank. It wasn't there yesterday when I fed and watered him, and I haven't been around all day, so it has to be new. It looks kinda similar to pic related except it's tiny, its stalk is a whole lot thicker, and the head has a brown spot in the very center. Everything else is white as snow. I... Comment too long.

>>771926 >clean and sterlize the tank I'll do my best but they say not to use cleaning agents when cleaning tanks for amphibians. Some reptiles are fine but amphibians, especially frogs, drink water through their skin so they're more susceptible to chemicals and chemical residue, especially chlorine in the water. I have to use special drops in his pitcher of water to eliminate chlorine and other shit, and when I clean the tank I have to use a hose then let it completely dry. I have... Comment too long.

>>771933 Oh and I forgot, there's this stuff called Eco Earth that's made of dried coconut shavings and shit that I use for the dirt layer in the bottom of the tank, so it's not legitimate dirt. There is one dead cricket and some frog excrement in there so I guess it could thrive if he splashes water out of his bowl everywhere. I just never thought actual spores would get in there, it's a terrarium. Also, most of the decorations I keep in there have been in there for the entire time I've had him (washing...

>>764893 but where else will I get strangers to recommend tactical, unrealistically-sized, fixed blades that I plan to intentionally abuse in ways they were not intended, while playing out in the backyard, so I can video tape it and upload it to youtube!?
Because I'm curious, what preps does /out/ have for SHTF? I have a cabin 500km away full of supplies, guns and farming stuff. I have a bag packed near my front door with enough food and water to last the trip and a bike to get to my location.
I'm looking into getting an Osprey Atmos Backpack. I'm trying to decide between the 50 L and the 65 L. I'm a noob looking to backpack, and don't exactly have ultralight gear. I have a Zephyr 3 that I'll be lugging around.
Also, looking for an affordable sleeping bag to slap in there, thinking maybe Kelty Cosmic Down 20/21 or The North Face Cat's Meow. Which of these, or would you recommend something different for < $150?
>>774257 Cat's Meow is super comfy. I tried on an Atmos, but it was BIG. I don't do really long trips, just a night or two. I ended up going with the Kestrel 38. If you don't do super long trips, the Atmos will be too big. The Kestrel is comfy, and much heavier duty material than the Talon or Atmos line.
>Scandi >Literally playing life on easy mode >Still finds a wat to fuck it up Anon you need to step up your game.
Anyway, hitchhinkingb to the Med will not be difficult you just need to find the right people but catching a ride with a cargo ship will not be easy. They have to follow rules and you are another person for them to look for. Also they'll not feed you for free.
>>773914 You have no idea how fucking horrible the Scandinavian way of life is if you don't fit 100% in. Yes, everything is good and well, but ONLY if you're willing to get a job fast so you can start paying back to society.
And I was of course planning on working on board the ship to pay my fare.
I should specify further that I'm from England and that I've been WWOOFing for more-or-less a year at different places. I only saved up about £1000 (about $1500) because if you're primarily doing WWOOFing, then there isn't much expenditure apart from transportation. As the WWOOF contract states, the host will be looking after all the food and accommodation which is one of the more expensive parts of travelling. The further... Comment too long.

What are your summer plans? Anyone going /out/ abroad? I want to go /out/ing Sweden during a couple weeks but I'm afraid of finding out that memes are real and get disappointed. Is it better to play it safe and go to Finland/Norway instead? I'm going alone btw.
Anyway use this thread to discuss about your summer. If you want to do so.
taking my kid camping for the first time next weekend. if it goes well i have another one lined up in june. i have a couple backpacking trips in the sierra in july, one on the west side, one on the east side (pic semi-related: both will be slightly out of the right side of the frame). i have half a dozen climbs i want to get on, but i'm skeptical i'll get more than 2 with how busy my partners and i are this summer.
Next weekend the waifu and I are going hiking for 4 days in the White Mountains. Should be good. Might climb Mt Katahdin in September if the campsites aren't already booked up. We hiked the Bigelow section of the Appalachian Trail last week; pic related.
