Climbers kind of conquered Kalymnos. There is not really much on it besides endless limestone rock formations. Climbing tourism is a major part of their economy now. 3.3 thousand routes on 11 hectares. Outdoor shops in every hicktown.
you only put chalk on the rock to mark a hold that his hidden from view (around a corner) so you know where to grab roughly. Always brush tick marks off though, dont be that guy.
I'm kind of stuck at an awkward plateau where i can generally flash v4s with ease but v5s seems not doable. What are some suggestions that you all have for getting over this plateau?
start working v6s. you'll fail hilariously, but when you come back to v5s they'll seem easier by comparison.
if chalk on a rock bothers you that much go climb somewhere no one goes, pussy

>Is that local soil vs soil you made?
It's coco coir in the pots and there fed with a hydro fertilizer
In ground is mostly all local soil with some garden soil mixed in when they where transplanted
Never intended to have any in ground but after having bad germination rates at first I just did the whole packet and damn near all of them germinated and after I did the pots I left the rest to fend to for themselves in the ground, I couldn't see tossing them

Probably so, if they still grow up and produce something I'll be satisfied
That makes a lot of sense then. In the bottom of the image, there's a type of grass/weed that only grows in habitually wet areas. That can also hinder the growth of soil-grown corn a great deal.

Any of you guys tattoo your chickens?

I have 3/8" digits pliers but they're a tad too big. Should I go with the 5/16" pliers?

I also found some 3/16" but they're twice the price.

There's also some called Stone #300 that I believe are smaller than 5/16".

Anyone with experienced can help me out?

Whats the best knife out there?

Is it stall fallkniven? (or at least when bang for your buck is concerned?)

I love the A1 but I think I'm going to end up going with the F1 because of its legal blade length, and i have a nice bowie knife already.

How is the knife?
I suppose Niolox is much easier to sharpen than powder steels? Also checked.

Is lyme disease something that stays forever or will go away eventually?
Also I always thought the other disease ticks spread was way more serious. The one that causes inflammation on the brain.
That would be syphilis, witch I would rather have than lyme

But if the neds are the problem then making it illegal won't help that?

As a former highlander who's recently lost their car and now lives in Glasgow I'm having trouble finding weekend away spots that aren't completely mobbed by day-trippers. Any advice?
>But if the neds are the problem then making it illegal won't help that?
It works in England.

>Any advice?
Surely if you're a former highlander you must know plenty of places? I've never had an issue escaping the crowds in the southern highlands, just get outside the Trossachs NP and you'll find plenty of places. Look at a map, find a glen you don't immediately recognise the name of and chances are you're already looking off the beaten track. 95% of the day trippers will be going to 5% of the spots.

I'm thinking about kayaking down a local river. About 60-70 miles in length and no more than a class 2. My kayak looks about the same as pic related, a cheapo, walmart yak. Is it possible? About how many days will it take?
My biggest fear is the homeless living along the river so I'll probably be armed but is this feasible? I love kayaking but i've never done a touring, yaking, camping combo. Am i stupid for trying this? Anyone experienced in this sorta thing. I'll be pretty much noobing it out there solo but I'm willing to take the risk for the sake of adventure

>Stick better than gun
Yea let me just park my kayak real quick and come wack you. No no no you just stay right there while I paddle over there.
If you need to paddle over to engage a hobo why were you in danger?
Some practical advice: At least learn what a correct forward and reverse stroke is so you don't destroy your shoulder. Carry a back-up paddle, have your primary paddle also be a good brand. I get the feeling you're using the cheap ass paddle that came with the boat. If it breaks it's going to be a shitty trip. Carry water. Wear your pfd, as others said. If you're in the water and in a current you can get pulled under the boat and the pfd will save your ass. Avoid strainers and at least look up a photo of what one is, that's your biggest threat on a river. If you run into hobos, you have a boat so just leave.
He looked at me cross ways.
Fuck you eurocuck

Not sure if this qualifies as outdoors, technically speaking
Anyways i'm not sure where to post this but i want to know if there are other cataphiles here ? Or people who want to find out about them ? The friends i usually go with are all moving out and it's complicated to get something going with the discord people

It's great to do, basically like light speleology
You climb and crawl and you go through water and mud in search of "rooms", where the parties take place
There you get drunk as fuck and try to read the map and still get out in one piece
Tons of other cool stuff too like hidden things, special rooms ...
Pic is a very rare up to date map, i'm not supposed to share that but fuck the discord and this is just 4chan anyways

so yeah if anybody is interested just post itt

>Only death i ever heard about is Philibert Aspairt
Is it that hard to get lost down there? It seems like people are bound to get lost in such a large tunnel network.
1 year or so only actually, but yeah my friends group are going away, i'd be up for going down if we can set that up
most people actually roam in the same parts of the network, and since catacombs parties have been popular since the 1960s there are lots of people there and at most you'd be lost a few days, you'd come across people the next weekend. there have been some cases where people were lost for a few days, I can think of several examples, the most recent two or three years ago when 3 teenagers were lost 3 days. otherwise if you have a map and are not too drunk and do not venture the lesser mapped parts you're fine.
sure, gimme a mail contact and we can hit it up
It's that Saracens doing the raping and killing, not the frogs. The frogs just eat cheese and get drunk.

No I agree, I’m not trying to start a debate. I was making a humorous-intentioned observation about how fun it would be to mow hogs with an m240 or something.
it would be fantastic

Can confirm it's an extremely common plant in Scotland. I didn't even know it was poisonous!

Florida has no rocks, either. we have to make them out of concrete.

Personally, I'd just make one from some scrap sheet metal, if it needed to be flat in storage. Otherwise, I just use my tin can rocket stoves.

>Was looking to buy one, but I'm still wondering what they do, that a circle of rocks won't do

+ more comfortable to cook than having to put pot/kettle/mug in the fire
+ safer to use when it's drout

+ safe/discrete to use in places where you cant make fire because of reasons (last week I used esbit stove to cook water for tea on a beach full of people)

- twigs burn out fery fast so you have to feed the stove constantly, unlike with regular fire

- yet another piece of junk to haul with you, regardless how light & small it is

The boredom would drive you mental (if you aren't already).
There was that guy that landed on an island populated with feral goats. He passed the time by banging them, racing them and fighting them. He marked the ears of the ones that were best to have sex with so he wouldn't accidentally eat them. Maybe OP could do that?
The fact that they're considering this is confirmation enough.
I'd watch that documentary.
I'm pretty sure that's a fortnite map
