/out/ musical instruments thread

What are your favorite gitfiddles and poorwhistles to bring along on the great outdoors? I currently bring a banjo and a harmonica, but the banjo is still bulky to pack into a kayak or bring on a trail. Been thinking about a cheap mandolin to cut down on space and maybe worry less if it takes a good knock. Anyone have any recommendations on one that doesn't suck ass and is <$300?

Post stories, pics, make fun of other peoples instruments etc

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

Frost is a form of ice. If comes from condensation freezing.

I'm not sure if this is the right board for the topic, but I'll post it here anyway. I'm doing a personal research project on the history of conservation and hunting, and I am currently up to the point where I am trying to pin down the beginning of the anti-hunting movement. In your view, when was it that hunting started to come under fire in popular culture, and what caused many people to adopt a negative view of hunting and hunters?

>>1657951
OP here, really interesting information.
>>
>>1657922
Not in the US But the UK. A few quick points.
Here hunting has always been a rich mans sport. and people will spite themselves with the i wouldn't want to do it anyway argument.

Prob 1-excessive cost required to licence, own and store a weapon. (Also being known to hold legal weapons in a town makes you a target for criminals as its easier to take yours than it is to find someone to sell.)

Next problem is the land- You need a lot of land to hunt anything more than rabbits and pheasants. Tiny by US standards, but unobtainable for most normal people. Even if you have a few acres you can't set up a blind and shoot deer as there aren't that many of them, also the whole country has enough public footpaths that there will nearly always be a walker downrange. you need to schmooze landowners into giving you permission to be on their more remote areas.

Then class -While working class people can and do hunt for the pot (I love being able to go out and bag a couple of birds for my dinner) hunting foxes and deer are seen as being cruel -For a normie who's happy to eat bacon and beef all day hunting a wild animal is not seen as pest control but being a "Toff" or "Nob" by lots of the population so hunting is a class betrayal. -Most people are also so disconnected from the land they can't understand this is silly.

Finally Animal Cruelty- Because fur farms are cruel with animals being farmed for their skins. All animal skins and non meat products from recognised animals are cruel. Making a rabbit skin mitten is considered just as cruel as killing the the last snow leopard.
There are also large groups of Townies who will take their dogs into the countryside, dig up a badger sett or foxes den and have them fight which is needlessly cruel.

Don't forget to include the biggest anti-hunting hypocrites the Creator has ever seen. The First Nations and Inuit people of Canada have clashed with the Government and even other animal rights groups since before treaty and animal rights were even a thing. They will consistently whine and complain about their traditional subsistence hunting rights meanwhile every man woman and child capable of handling a rifle will shoot half a dozen moose, bison or caribou each multiple times a year. They know nothing about conservation and if they stay the course, many large terrestrial animal populations will suffer longterm. Mind you this seems to be a problem with recent generations and aboriginal populations are on the rebound and rising. There is no tag system. They can knock down whatever is in their treaty territory.
INB4 But das a racist! I'm a card carrying treaty 8 Indian who practices sustainable hunting. These people, who are my aunts, uncles and cousins are the most despicable wasteful humans I've ever seen. Worse than niggers. Cruel and ignorant of their roots.

Get /out/ and walk, post some photos of neat shit that you see.

I wrecked my knee on the Benton MacKaye while long term camping in Sept/Oct. I've been about a week without noticing any pain, so figured it was time to start testing. Did about 3.7 mi today, no issues.

I'm staying with an elderly fellow that fractured his back, so walking the roads around his place, which is pretty danged /out/. Pic related is about 1.5 miles up the road and down another, 'murica, fuck yeah!

It's been a little over a year now since I tore my LCL and just worked myself up to 7.5 miles today, and I'm feeling it. I wear a knee brace and it helps very little. I take an ibuprofun before and half way through my hike and it helps a little. Knee injuries are the worst man.

Most of these photos were taken on one-day trips. As I'm weaker and weaker with each day, I do less and less of a long outings.

In MARCH I accidentally found old unused rails. It was sunny all day, rays of the spring sun were pleasant on skin. I made it to the end of it. There was an abandoned warehouse, and I enjoyed the sunset there.
On the APRIL shot is shown regenerated meadow, where I had horses years ago. Next year I will make hay from that grass.
MAY and JUNE are warm months, I did a lot of outing. Cycling, hiking, horse riding, car trips... I miss all that now.
JULY picture was shot on evening in the mountains. We were camping by campfire with my friend. We don't see each other often. It was cold that evening, so I held her close to me. We drank a bottle of wine, and yes, we slept in one tent on that night.
SEPTEMBER, it is only a sunset. I sat on the fallen branch and was only watching sun going down. I really like sunsets, maybe it's because I'm alone.
I tried urbex in OCTOBER. I found an abandoned spa area in the mountains. Beautiful buildings on beautiful place. I still can't believe they let that area decay.
DECEMBER, last week, we did a short hike in the woods with a friend, and then we made dinner for us in front of some cabin. He is a terrific comedian and "incurable neet."

Hey /out/ whats good /out/ stuff to do in utah during the summer? I go snowboarding I just started this year but I'm looking to get out more. I come from a family that all plays WoW and I'm trying to break the cicle.
>>
Utah is like one of the most /out/ states. You can pretty much do whatever you want.
>>
I'd personally recommend hiking in boulder as there are multiple trails and it stays cools b/c mountains. you can also go to lake powell but it's normally kind of crowded during the summer. I'd also recommend looking up atlas obscura if you're interested in ghost towns and landmarks.
>>
There's always dying in the sun, lot of that around Utah

I'd love to check out some ghost towns that'd be neat af to do, I'll remember that one for next summer.

Seconded. I usually don't like North Face, but I read really good things about their duffle, I picked one up about three weeks ago for travel and general use. It feels and looks bomb-proof, and is fairly waterproof to my knowledge. Would recommend, they can get the shit beat out of them.

Just make sure to get a large. I need the other side is just wasting money. And the price is good for how much space and reliability you get.

if you are fishing strictly nymphs and the pockets you plan to fish are within your rods reach then yeah it will arguably be more effective. The whole setup is meant to be extremely light so that any subtle bump in your fly will be felt. By high sticking with a euro setup you get a straight connection to the bottom with little to no slack in your line.

So I like to take my dog camping, but she's a short hair boxer/pit mix so she doesn't have a lot of natural insulation, and shivers a lot in winter especially at night. Anyone have experience with dog snow wear? The only thing I find in stores are the cheesy sweaters that are mostly for toy dogs, and don't provide much insulation.

Additionally, I've been training her to sit in my kayak, trying to get her ready to do a week long kayaking trip with me. She's fine when it's in my back yard, but she is too scared to get in when I try in the water. She like playing in water but doesn't like it to come above her belly. Anyone else train their dogs to be comfortable kayaking/canoeing?
