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:

What are some good plug or flake tobaccos that are non aromatic?

About a month ago I picked up orlik gold slices as my first flake and I damn near smoked 3 ounces of it. Very much prefer it to ribbon or shag cut.

Orlik Golden Sliced is awesome.
Other good ones are Escudo, Capstan, and Three Nuns.

I live in Northern Illinois and haven't left my house in 3 months other than to buy groceries. I desperately need to go out and enjoy nature with my dog, spend a week or two in the wild and completely rewire myself and lose some stress.

Does anyone know any good areas around the Northern IL area? It's snowing like a mofo though, so I don't know what kind of stuff should I pack? I was thinking of going car camping to the Shawnee Forest, but would I have to spend a fuckton of money on a tent or would a normal $25 tent work fine in winter if I have a good blanket and some jackets on top?

Any other tips? Literally my first time ever going out and living by myself life this, don't even know how to make fire so I'll learn that from Youtube since I'm guessing it'll come in handy while making food

thanks

There is kettle moraine in southern Wisconsin.

There's some nice places along the Des Plaines near the Wisconsin border. Not very wide, but it can get pretty dense. That's the most immersed you'll get near the lakefront. The county watches the lots pretty tightly for sleepers, but if you park elsewhere and walk to the trail they only patrol the trails. I've been off the trail a bit and you can find camp sites with cans that expired 30 years ago.

No-see-um mesh walls
Taped seams on floor and fly

My shit doesn't fit under vestibules, and they do not offer adequate protection from heavy rain. I typically only keep my shoes/boots under those.
>>
>>1413195
then you bring too much shit, and don't stake your fly out enough or pick poor tent sites.
>>
>>1413199
>you bring too much shit

As if everyone's needs are the same. Some of us actually live /out/ and have everything we own with us. I stake my fly out as far as it goes, but it does not have a floor under it, and there are slight gaps. Once it has rained multiple days, the ground is often saturated. It's usually mostly dry under there, but sometimes not completely.
>>
>>1413192
>tent has very little to do with warmth. your comfort was due to your bag.
Probably, but it kept the snow out.
>>
I'm presently long term camping in one spot and have garbage bags stuffed into the vents and a couple of tarps covering the whole tent. It retains far more warmth.

Anyone thru-hike or section hike any of the triple crown trails in the US? I'm getting out of the military and plan on hiking the Appalachian Trail northbound this April and was wondering if anyone had any advice or stories.

>>1404672
I can offer some answers here, too.

>How long, and how much?
I started early June, and finished late November. I'm a slow boi, so I wound up costing more than you probably will. All said, I wound up spending around $5,500. About $800 on my initial gear, another $500 on replacements, and the rest on buying supplies in the towns I came through, and on taking zeroes.

>Nobo, Sobo, Flip Flop?
Sobo. The forced conditioning to start was hell, but as soon as I passed the Whites it was smooth sailing, and I was damn glad for my choice.

>How many miles did you average? How many zero/nearo days did you take?
Again, I'm slower than most, and I had no set end date to boot, so I took my time going through. I wound up averaging about 14 miles per day, and usually took one zero a week. I stopped in most of the towns I passed early on, and about half of the ones I passed later just because there were so damn many.

>Favorite part
Aside from the sheer joy of relaxing in a hotel and gorging on town food? The White Mountains. South of Mt Washington, I felt like I was in the Scottish Highlands. Easily my favorite part of the whole trip, absolutely gorgeous.


Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>1405713
Absolutely. If you hike it Nobo, the trail will get you in shape as you go. If you hike it Sobo, you'll deal with about 1 - 1.5 months of hell and then be in phenomenal shape and able to pound out the rest of the trail in a breeze.

The trail really is just starving yourself in slow motion as you walk for a really long time. It's the reason why Hiker Hunger is a thing. You'll be in much better shape by the end of it.

And there will definitely be hard parts, but I saw 80 year old men, women carrying babies, and 8 year old children all hiking the trail. You can do it.
>>
>>1408334
I really disliked the NOBO crowd.
>>
>>1408334
Dang that's discouraging. The timing of my EAS is such where I feel obligated to go nobo, almost as if it's destined. I feel as though if I go home for those ~3 months I'm gonna wind up getting started with college/career and not actually check this off my bucket list.

>>1409047
Can you elaborate as to why?
>>
I'd love to do one, but I am starting a career that will lead me and my future family to a happy future. I guess ill wait until I retire.

I had been sporting a Yukon 48 for years and upgrades to a Crown2 60 to get into more backpacking. Is there any reason to keep the old Yukon? I can't seem to find one, but it would be a waste to just toss/donate a $120 pack.

What are /out/ Anon's look on Zippo lighters?

I thought Zippos were cool when I saw them as a kid in the gas station displays. Owned one once and it stank and leaked fuel in my pocket all the time. Sometimes turned into a fireball upon ignition but it did always light...for like 2 days. Even not using it all the fuel would just leak out somehow after after a week.

Total junk that survives only on tradition and boomers buying them.
>>
>>1411987
i think pic related is pretty much it right now for non pressurized, multi-liquid fuel pocket lighters. granted it doesn't do everything as well as Zippo does because it doesn't deploy as quickly for a quick cigarette lite as a Zippo does.

i've been designing an improved Zippo in my head the last couple of weeks actually. it would fix the evaporation issue along with the cam making the insert walk out issue and also the crummy hinge.
waterproofing would also be a nice improvement.
all while retaining the multi-fuel capability and speed of deployment of a Zippo.

i should really learn to use an appropriate 3d modeling program. of course, prototyping and testing is another big job to dial it in. though, figuring out how to efficiently manufacture a design to sell as a product is a far harder job, and one that requires capital and risk.

Big Sur was pretty nice when I was there a few weeks ago, but there was a lot of people too.

Old axes tend to have very little steel on them and cut like shit unless you spend hours thinning them down again. good splitters though.
A new coucil tool or hultafors is the way to go.
