What's your favorite tree? For me, it's the humble Pinyon Pine, the best North American conifer.

I just have one of those camo hoods if birdwatching/hunting. My normal clothes are earth tones. I don't think I'd spring for a camo pattern because I like to use the same clothes for as many different uses as possible.

I have a small bit of land on my garden where I want to cultivate something to eat or at least something useful. I live in a tropical/temperate zone where the seasons don't hit that hard (more of a rainy/dry thing) at about 1200 meters above sea level. Any beginner advice? I'm thinking of growing something like potatoes, radishes, lettuce. Happy to give more info if needed

Potatoes don't really do as well in warmer climates, but I'm sure you can find a tropical cultivar. Do ya research on your own time.

BCfag here. I've encountered two hermit dwellings in the last 6 months on the coast here. The first still being occupied and having been so for 20 years according to the hermit. This country is massive. If you want, nobody would ever bother you. I found that funny about the "freeman" movement. If they were serious about it they could just melt into the mountains instead they want to fight cops and court over driving without insurance.

All the "easy to reach" or "best" spots are not that secluded, at least not long enough at a stretch to remain secluded forever. If you want to find a boggy spot only reachable by fly-in, maybe.

I'm talking 50-75+ years from now. I'm not a /pol/tard or anything but 20+ years in Vancouver has shown me the way demographics are going. As for the cash, I'd love to pay no tax on anything because my grandmother was native and that's just the start.

what are some good places around mt pilchuck that isnt a fucking carlot full of elders and boomers i remember years ago it was not like this at my nearest trails. Used to only see like 2 ppl on hikes now its infested with jannies and boomers from seattle. i do enjoy going to those ice caves to see the fucking idiots walk in the caves. been thinking of doing vesper peak it looks pretty cray
>>
Start earlier or do more obscure difficult trails. If Vesper is too hard for you, I don’t really know I can suggest anything else. Maybe Forgotten?
>>
>>1541936
Actually, you could just go to the meadows on Forgotten. Gothic Basin and/or Monte Cristo, up to Glacier Basin or Poodle Dog Pass. But alot of these (including Vesper) are pretty normie. Forgotten is still your best bet

thank you. ive heard of a few of these and done monte cristo before.

How important is 4 wheel drive to an adventure van?

Looks like the old threads are gone, time to make a new one. I live near the Merced River near Yosemite and this area here is a public recreational area where panning for gold is legal. I started panning here last November not realizing that I was actually standing in the middle of the river, 7 months later and now it's completely flooded. Is there a chance this river will get as low as it did back in November again, or with all the rain and snow recently it won't get this low again for several years? And where do you think the gold would've concentrated the most in this area?

You bet I did, took all the cord home. Used the real shitty string for pea trellis and even today I carry some of it on my keys every day

On another slightly unrelated point, some of the paracird was kinda stiff, but I often keep a small hank I'm my pocket just to play around with knots when I'm bored, any way, recently washed a pair of pants with a hank of it still in pocket, and th3 cord came out supple and workable

Not sure what that means or the heat of the wash has impacted the strength of the cord, I would assume so
