I've never seen these grubs before but I found them in the rotted pulp in the middle of a stump in my yard. Are they June bugs maybe? And do they taste good?

I'd try it. The fags trying to make it out like it's not masculine to eat some weird adventurous foods are just defensive autists who probably eat nothing but tendies.

The only reason I don't eat bugs regularly is that they're usually expensive niche products

Rain forecast for the next fucking week. Temperatures never going into the 20s. How are you other /out/ Brits coping with the fact that each weekend so far has pretty much been a washout?

/brit/ forester reporting. There's barely been any rain and there's been plenty of warm sun, I'd say summer is well under way. Some of our trees are already struggling this year, especially after the fucking farce of a summer last year. The last few days have been a help but there's still not been enough.

north coast of Ohio reporting in

this is going to be one of THOSE summers, where it never kicks off and rains for entire blocks of 72 - 96 hours at a time until about October 12th, when it dips below 40 fahrenheit for the first time and all the fall foliage just fucking disappears over one 12 hour period.

just like 2015, and before that 2002? 2003? or was it 2004 where it rained across the whole of the north east for an entire week and never really got over 75f?

Have you ever read the back of one of the pouches? Serving size is 2/3 cooked cup of a serving of 2 portions. If that is some how a massive portion to you, you probably have some eating disorder. I go camping on my private land, have my own cabin there. My day is spent chopping wood, building new shit to add onto it (building a smoke house soon) clearing the land ( I own almost 400 acres now) so after a days work the calories, carbs, sodium, etc, doesnt mean shit. Plus my doctor and nutritionist think every thing I am doing is more than fine.

I'm looking for an inexpensive tent for use a couple times this summer and fall, to start. I saw the one in the image, and it's literally a pop-out tent you can throw to set up.

It'll be for use in state parks and such, for fishing trips across my home state.

Is this reasonable enough for some car camping, or does /out/ have better suggestions?

I'm inexperienced.
This will be car camping, at least primarily. There may be some boat-based camping at some point.

Alrighty. I may have a look at some big box stores in my area, then. I've got time to make a decision.

I haven't had a tent in a very long time, and my last one was one of those little pup tents, with the pole at each end. I may look into some inexpensive dome tents, though setting up my parents' tent was a pain in the arse as well.
>>
those pop up tents are great for your need.

I wouldn't say the one I have is fragile, but I would recommend you spend a little bit of time in your yard or a park figuring out how to fold it up with a gentle touch.
>>
not op but what are some GOOD quality tents? ive been looking and reading reviews but i havent found anything solid enough to tip me to one option
>>
>>1540692
OP here. While I can't offer advice, what's your budget? What size tent, and what application? Are you backpacking? Car camping?
>>
>>1540692
Are you beginner or do you already have a tent?

If you already have a tent you should know what you are looking for that your current one lacks
>durability
>weight
>set up
>weatherproofing
>space
and address from there

If you're a beginner don't drop all your money on a $400 ultralight tent in case it turns out you don't like it. Get something in the $100-150 range to try out you're going for backpacking; you don't want absolute garbage

Define this.
>>
>>1538718
You cant just read a book, get out and take a class and hike some smaller mountains. Know your ice axe and crampons well before you do anything big. Remember, if its dangerous in summer itll be doubly so in winter.

>>1538542
You dont just climb fucking mont blanc with no prior experience. I encourage you to try though. Make sure to live stream your death to us.

I sometimes wanna carry a machete or axe on my belt on a hike, or a cordless nut-driver in holster at work, or even a pistol (I do some guard work), and the holsters and sheaths are OK, cheap and handy, but they all require undoing my belt, which don't seem like a big deal except I also like 2.25" belts with plastic kwik connectors that are pain to fed through the connectors.https://www.ebay.com/itm/NcStar-Tactical-Belt-Rig-w-QD-2-Pistol-Mag-Pouch-Battle-Combat-Police-SWAT/201645629444?epid=1380841651&hash=item2ef3042004:m:mFq9rPqHL0MkFaX5J6qkGEg (great belts IMO at cheap price, I just leave them in the pants to wash).
I don't wanna be swagging into supermarket or bank with big knife or axe on my belt, and its hard to sit in car. Also don't want to be always acting like I'm pulling my pants down in semi-public, never know when some person is gonna get wrong impression and call cops, etc.
What I want is some tough plastic (or metal, I guess) that would function similar to paddle holster and would attach itself to a stardard sheath/holster belt loop, but allow for quick and easy on-off of 1-2.25" belt without messing with the belt. Probably not some much "paddle", just something that hangs on the belt, maybe with clip that keeps it on unless intentionally removed, but just a pure gravity device would be OK 99% of time, and simpler.
I've tried using a couple 6" molle straps criss-crossed, but seems awkward and less than ideal, and hard to reach around and do the straps (maybe I need to do more stretching).
I guess a flattened "S" hook could work, if a cut was made on the inside of the holster's loop to accept the upward pointing part of the "S" hook, but it would be nice to be able to use without butchering up stuff.
Any such handy little thingy exist and I just don't know WTF its called?
Any design ideas?

R U joking?
My main issue is I want to add or subtrack holster/sheath borne items WITHOUT lots of belt fumbling, on a casual basis, perhaps handing units out to anyone wearing pants with a belt, or even to anyone wearing non-belted anything that has a good belt-line to carry a unit.

Big Dollar goofy two-part, two belt "solutions" is going in the opposite direction.

First off, why yall hold out on me. Pick related. Thornless blackberries. OP sitting here with a razorblade and cactus fingers. Oh well i guess. The missus wants blackberry lemonade and the hard part is done so whatever.

I dont have a ton of room but i have 6 decent sized south facing windows. I live in zone 7b and mostly want some vine type plants that i can trellis around things and make the most out of the sun that i do have. Just wondering if anyone has had luck.

I'm starting some bonsai fruit trees and pepper plants for the hell of it.

Would building a box lined with foil help get more sun or would they be fine with what little winter sun is there?

I'd also like opinions on some led grow lamps. I'm not after anything super fancy. But i dont want my house to burn because of cheap lighting either.

Thoughts?

Washington would be best. Mildest climate, probably warmer than the ozarks.

>>1540069
I've looked into this a lot on my own and decided that Montana or South Dakota would be ideal (even though SD isn't on your list.) Wyoming and Idaho both are losing rainfall due to climate change IIRC. This wouldn't matter much for temporary survival but if you plan on staying there it's something to consider.

>>1540218

it gets near the hundreds where I used to live (the ozarks) and while it does get cold it rarely snows at all, maybe 3 days of snow every couple of years. different in different elevations of course.
