kinda wanna get into some speed climbing. Watching the reel rock film about honnold/caldwell's speed record got me stoked... especially the Huber brothers, Potter/Leary and of course Gobright/Reynolds just tearing it the fuck up previously. I want some of that action. How would y'all train for some speed climbing? Any exercises you'd recommend to become beastly fast at systems/efficiency/management?

Depth is most important. Will the roots have enough room to grow without getting so root bound that you need to repot every 2 years? Seasonal veggies won't need that sort of repotting of course. 48cm, depth isn't very much to be filling in the bottom with wood. There may be room enough for about 6cm of wood on the bottom. Hugelkultur works a bit better on a larger scale.

So I have some seeds from a Korean varietal of pear that I took from one, and I was getting to thinking about seeing if I can get them growing. There's an empty space for a tree right now around the house and I was thinking if I can get a sapling or few of these pear trees growing, it'd be perfect to place there.

I was thinking I would plant them in some pots come January so that it's not too early and by the time March hits, I can transfer one to the ground at least. I was also thinking of letting the pots stay outdoors during the day but bringing them in at night so as to get any potential sprouts accustomed to the outside light without having to worry (as much) about transplant shock.

Thoughts? Advice? The seeds look mature enough, so I think it should work...

Get a reel that's compact and lightweight.
I'm personally a fan of Daiwa for spinning reels, they really hit the ball out of the park with their LT lineup.
Size 1000 or 2000 and around 6oz would be ideal. For very small streams and rivers there's no need for size 2500 and up.
I use a JDM Daiwa Ballistic LT FW in size 2000. In that range, the Daiwa Kage LT, Tatula LT, or the Luvias are also nice. Shimano Stradic CI4+ or the new Stradic FL are also options depending on your budget, but are probably overkill for the type of fishing you're doing in small streams. You can even get by on a lower end reel if your budget is tight.

So Im in a bad possition, but I found the good in it.
Long story short, no home, no job, lost everything, or selling what I got left, so nothing to lose. So here's a rethorical question. If you where in my shoes, where would you move? State, country, town? Plane, train, bus, hitch hike. You only have money for a one-way ticket and some food. 2 things mama & papa are no option. Military is out the question, I'am a pacifist. Support the troop not the war. Just you, passport, and a backpack of what you need. I got about a week to plan this move. I have paypal, and a bank account if you wanna throw me some $£¥ for the road. Otherwise let me hear your input I'm only a 23 year old guy, doomer, musician and skater. Mostly in it for the small things. I'If you are younger or older let me know what you would do what you did and what you would do different. Is this a good tinder bio? Are girls into drifters with no cars lol. Jokes aside I dont have any "problems" that got me here. Just a broke boy, no saftey net.
>>TLDR: If you can move anyonewhere with "nothing"(passport, clothes on back, backpack), in abouymt a week where would it be?

P.S :( not much /adv at /adv, asked /trv...

Looking for a watch for /out/ but I'm also looking for taking it out ice fishing. Where I'm from this means the temperature could get to -20f (-28.8c)

while on my wrist it may not get there, the windchill while looking at the watch may get it really freaking cold. I'm looking at the Pathfinder PAG240-1 from Casio but I can't seem to find the operating temperature.
I know the sensor only goes from 14 degrees to 104 or something, but not really any info on operating temp of the LCD.

I know Casio also makes a Low Temp LCD watch but it doesn't have the options. Or is there another brand that is low-temp with lots of /out/ options?

Gen watch threat too

It’s about that time of year again, boys.
Hopefully everyone has saved a bit to spread some outdoors cheer to anons across the globe. i remember guys from the US, UK, CA, MX, and DE getting gifts.

if you don’t know how it’s done:
1: make an Amazon wish list
2: add /out/ related items
3: click “manage list” and update your /out/ list’s shipping address. simply updating your shipping address will not suffice. many anons had problems with missed shipments over the years.
4: copy and paste your list in your post
5: keep the gift giving going and tell the anon you bought for him so others can get a chance
6: remember you are on 4chan and may not get lucky.

i hope everyone gets a gift this year and you use your new equipment in the field.

Thank you both! I appreciate it!

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Prince Albert, Carter Hall or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $20.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

First, I would recommend not inhaling the smoke, but that’s how a pipe should properly be used anyway.
General rule of thumb: if you’re coughing, you’re doing it wrong.
As for style, whichever you prefer. We recommend a Missouri Meerschaum Legend here because it’s cheap, widely available and smokes very well.

4noggins. Low intercept rate since they "creatively label" their shipments to Canada (eg. the last shipments I got were labeled "packing supplies"). Keep the price under 100, and don't go crazy on the amount of tobacco either. Someone mentioned 7oz or less, and so far that's been working out for me.

If you try other online shops that ship here, post your results. Pretty sure pipesandcigars and smokingpipes do as well, could try them too.
>>
>>1654838
Land of the free..
>>
>>1654400
The only hobby you listed that might impact things is hiking, if you want to bring your pipe with you. A Missouri Meerschaum corncob is a good start for $5. Low investment if you don't like smoking, smokes great from the get-go, and if you break or lose it on a hiking trip, you're not out a lot of money (or one of a kind carved pipe).

Regarding your other questions, I'm not familiar with "oriental" pipes other than the kiseru, but that's meant to be used with very fine kizami tobacco that you roll into a ball and smoke in one good puff for a quick nicotine hit. If there is a pipe made in Asia or has an Asian design, go with what you think looks good, but maybe test on a cob first, unless you are more interested in collecting pipes than you are smoking them. Your health shouldn't be an issue if you keep it to a few times per week, and don't inhale (not meant to, anyway). If you're worried about mouth/tongue/throat issues, don't drink before or while smoking, switch the side of your mouth you hold the pipe in each session, smoke slowly to keep the smoke cool, and brush your teeth after you finish smoking. Those help reduce some of the health risk factors.

My apologies if this is too political for /out/, but why has the Republican party moved away from conservation policy? It seems like if they really cared about rural America and people who make a living off the land, then they would have more concern about industrial practices that poison and exhaust our natural resources.

I believe that is a very small minority of democrats. Most that I talk to are just opposed to assault weapons, and they understand why hunting is beneficial to the ecosystem.
