So around this time of year, these fruits start appearing.

I live in Houston and I am pretty sure they are not a native species. They seem to be a residential tree that show up in some neighborhoods and by bayous between subdivisions.

They taste kinda like a cross between a peach and a very very mild nectarine. The leaves are dark green, long and feel leathery. Each fruit has rather large smooth round brown seeds. 2-4.

There are freakin delicious and it’s strange because it seems like no one else harvests them. Even birds and parasites seem to ignore them. Squirrels sometimes go after them.

These things are delicious. I used to have a tree of them in an old house, and they are the tastiest damn thing when fresh.
those are persimmons
absolutely great when ripe and soft
terrible when not ripe enough
persimmons are incredible but these are loquats
In Portugal we call those nêsperas.
One of my favourites, they are super common in late spring and early/mid Summertime

>Tfw there was a huge loquat tree in my Middle school and me and the lads would collect a bunch of 'em and eat them on the way home

But warm food is good. At least in winter you gotta warm up with some tea or a soup. But some cold snacks are good for eating on the go. Well, it's not like a canteen and a mess kit costs that much.
Cookery is where I spend the money. Can't skimp on cookery.
>it could use a small camp axe or hatchet and a sawyer water filter
Sawyers are awesome, but depends on how cheap OP wants to get. Bleach is definitely the cheapest way to go.

Camp axe? Unless you're actually felling, cutting and splitting for next season, there's no reason to carry firewood-processing tools; just grab deadfall and break it up by hand.

usually the bigger the gravel is, so is the gold.
yes, look for where the larger stones and boulders have accumulated, as well as where they meet bedrock.
But do I dig in from of or behind the large boulder?
He’ll be finding panfuls m8
(not him but)
dig behind it. The boulder would slow down the flow of water, causing heavies to fall right behind (or even around) it

I have both Leatherman (charge) and several small victorinox.
Ad a tool the leatherman is great, bu Imo the victorinox steel is better for outside activities, it holds pretty well and is really stainless.
I guess the choice depends of you need the pliers or not, they are heavy but quite useful sometimes.
He other big difference is the scissors, which I end using quite a lot, the victorinox ones are GREAT.

If you're interested in the victorinox look for the outrider (pic related) is a little bigger than their faggy swiss army one, has a good lock and scissors
useless serrations on main knife and super cucked non stabby non point. GAAAAAY.

Sometimes, you just need to stab a bitch.

pics related my 20mm evazote foam pad for hammock and ground dwelling in my hammock/biwi

r- value should be between 3 and 5 so suited for -5 to -20 weather. this is around 10% worse then a Therm-a-Rest Z-Lite SOL if I just go by the technical stats. but so far i was never out that cold temperatures only down to -12°C or so.

i use it with a chink down quilt which is really nice, very wind prove. but not very breathable in warm conditions.

and yes its comically huge

I made some aluminium tent pegs but if I look at them sideways they bend, is there any way to harden this shit?
Use wood

As a child, I always wanted to go backpacking/fishing/hunting. Unfortunately that was never something my parents did so I never got to experience it. Eventually that yearning went away.

I'm an adult now, and over the past couple of years I've been getting the feeling of wanting to really get into the outdoors. Ever since I started having this feeling again, been camping, kayaking and snorkeling now. All things I wanted to do when I was young, and things I ended up really enjoying.

I want to get into fishing as well now, but I don't really know where to start. I know I'll need a license. I'm sure it will go away in time, and it will have to, especially if I plan on learning how to hunt eventually, but I have an aversion to seeing things being hurt. Putting live bait onto hooks, killing and cleaning the fish, these are things I know I will have to do. How can I get over this aversion as quickly as possible?

Thanks for the input!
Perhaps you could watch videos tutorial videos to avoid your initial squeamishness? Also, it might be good to keep in mind that all meat products you eat resulted from the death of an animal, and that you doing your hunting are likely giving that animal a quicker and less painful death than it probably would have experienced naturally.
basically like >>1497862 said, if you're doing this for food, and not merely for sport, you should have no problem at all.
also, if you're truly hungry out there, you'll start to want to kill things regardless of your morals :)
plus few people really go /out/ so you can always find nice spots in whichever waterways you like
Thanks guys! No way to get past it besides exposing myself to it.
Killing is weird at first. Best to just get to work and not dwell on it.
Where are you from? I know in Texas if you are fishing within a state park, you do not need a license. Also check to see if your state has a free fishing day.

As for the killing, the other anons pretty much nailed it.

I would even suggest watching videos on other people hunting and fishing and seeing what they do.

Focus on killing them as quickly as possible to keep them from suffering.

On the off chance you don’t kill them in the first blow don’t panic or feel bad and just focus on ending them.

Hammock general. Where did you hang this weekend, whats your setup. General hammock discussion.

I met with a group of hammock enthusiasts out hansons point in red river gorge. About 50 people showed up over the period of four days. Was an absolutely great time.

Ive got the hennessy safari deluxe with just a wool blanket and the MSS 0 degree bag. Working on the underquilt and topquilt but Im a poorfag and theyre expensive.

Seems to be too short if you want to lie diagonally in it.

>bug net not included
Yeah man the integrated systems cost a lot. My safari deluxe system is like 250$.
Is that structural ridgeline worth the extra money?
Seems like it makes a lot of sense.
I mean, my lay in mine is straight flat, plus you can hang shit from the ridge line. In mine they even provided a big ass pocket and clips for you to hang from it. Its really really nice. With the ridgeline and the side shock cord pullouts I get just an epic amount of space to work with.

What are local myths that are unique to your region. No boring shit that is everywhere like 'yeti' or 'bigfoot' and things like this. Actually interesting stuff that most will her for the first time.

This thing is a woiperdinger. It's a lower-bavarian mythical creature and a mix of quite a lot of real ones, mostly a rabbit. There is not much myth around it, other than them being mainly in the 'Bayrischer Wald' (Bavarian Forest) but also all around Bavaria. They are omnivores and hunt in flight.

There are a lot of cryptids associated with the ohio river. The Loveland Frogmen are reported to inhabit the Little Miami River, a tributary of the Ohio River, and have been seen a few times on roads next to it, holding wands that shoot sparks. There was a sighting recently by someone playing pokemon go, pic related.
Hold up senpai, what helmets?
I'm Silesia there's a myth of the "Rübezahl", the mountain spirit of the "Riesengebirge". He's depicted as old, bearded man and on older sources sometimes in a kind of demon shape. He appears when people get lost in the mountain and helps the good ones while he punishes the bad people as far as I know. He's also part of an old Silesian song" Riesengebirge" or "Meine Heimat Riesengebirge" where they sing that he and his gnomes or dwarves still make myths and stories to this day. I can only tell you about the German sources since my polish isn't that good desu. Who knows what the Polish and Czech know about him. Mabe I'll meet him when I'm in the mountains for a week now.
I haven't actually thought about searching it on Wikipedia. There's a lot more information there than I can provide.
