What's it like?
I'm thinking of being a truck driver after my 3 year contract in the army
That looks comfy as hell. How do you conduct hygiene, cook, entertain?
Do you play games? Do you have a laptop?
>>
>>1459709

It's a job first and foremost. Don't expect to make very much or go home more than once a month your first year. The second is ok. After the second year the insurance on you as a driver drops and you can get on with a smaller company and be home on weekends. I own a modest rig and the company. It's cool but you still have to run. I think I could make more selling insurance but it's a cool life. Be prepared to work 14 hour days 11 of which is spent driving. I trained when I was a company man, I loved ex military not sure why but they tend to adapt well. Your tuition assistance will cover cdl school. Try to find a 3 month program, one month programs are just too short.

Hygiene... You get a free shower token when you buy fuel at the truck stop. Shower every other day on average. I like to take a bird bath with baby wipes on the off evening. I have a microwave in the truck as well as my backpacking stove to cook on. Half size dorm fridge to keep fresh food. I try to hit a Walmart once a week and stock up. Entertainment consist of phone posting. Internet is surprisingly sparse if you don't have a giant data plan. I try not to entertain on the truck. It's my office. I try to find board women with their own shelter. Redneck chicks love truckers and usually have a single wide daddy bought em. I game occasionally. My desktop is in storage. I got into ark for awhile. I like the stalker series because no internet required. I do have a laptop. I try to hunt down wifi and download media when the opportunity arises. Wow, pretty jumbled response... Let me know if it made since

The problem is that they can't spread their roots out properly at the very beginning. If you started them indoors then planted them normally they'd fall over easily. You'd need to support every plant. Since the root ball isn't spread out over a large area there are other problems. The main one being stunted growth. You'd almost need to treat them like are using a hydroponics setup in order to give them enough nutrient in a smaller space. It is a complication.

are there livestock laws in your area? are you in a residential area by law? HOA? and quail can get pretty loud.

just move out into the country

I hike 80% of the time alone and often end up off trail and often find adverse terrain that is rather risky to keep going without having any kind of backup, that terrain might be either river crossings or steep slopes. So my question is, does it make sense to bring some type of rope? I have no climbing or mountaineering background so what would be the best knot/system to use that would give me the possibility to retrieve said rope?

kentucky caver here, just do a guided tour through mammoth cave first, spelunking is dangerous as fuck and if you get injured you're going to die because nobody will find you for weeks if not months/years. Still lots of old moonshiners, miners, and other fucks who hid in the caves and have their corpses found a hundred years later when they got lost.

>late 2017/early 2018
>new trend in EDC community is traditional folders
>like any fad, they’re popular because people think they look nice, but they also like them because they aren’t scary and despite their simple construction, they’re just as effective as expensive, over-engineered tactical box cutters
>middle end production knife companies try to get in on some of the action by producing “modern traditionals”, but they’re still scary looking because of tacticool designs and are too expensive for lack of complex design
>high end production companies seem to keep their distance, makes sense considering less cleverly designed features means less money the company can charge for a knife, r-right?
>benchmade makes the Proper, a “modern traditional”, and it costs more than a Bugout
>most people avoid it and see it for the scam it is considering the only reason to buy a benchmade is for the axis lock
>there are still people who buy it, and they love it because it cuts boxes just like any other thing that is sharp
>eventually friction folders become a mainstream hit, since they epitomize the simple and strong design
>people also love that they’re dirt cheap because they don’t waste a dime on things that aren’t relevant to cutting
>seems like high end knife companies have learned their lesson, nobody tries to make a high end friction folder because their price is what’s appealing

I also don't get it. When you cut (or at least when I cut) you push the blade into the material and against the backspring. So how does it close on you if you don't start drilling (which I never need)?
>>
>>1459595

The lock stops the blade from closing on your fingers.

If you cut enough shit with a non-locking folder, you'll eventually have it close on you when draw cuts on certain types of material.
>>
>>1459634
I am not bashing locking knives, a lock is a good safety feature for when you fuck up, but locks fail. It's a back up not something to be relied on.
You would do well to treat all folders as non locking knives.

Northern Virginia is basically a suburban hellhole. It's DC spillover. Horrible traffic, MS-13, "refugees welcome" signs in people's yards, the remnants of history being paved over for housing developments and shopping centers. Robert E. Lee would weep if he saw what became of his beloved Northern Virginia.
