I'm about to buy this awesome pavillion but the price seems too good to be true, is this a scam? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nordisk-Jotunheim-56-5m-Technical-Cotton/dp/B00BTWSP28/ref=sr_1_1?srs=2176946031&ie=UTF8&qid=1544376383&sr=8-1&keywords=jotunheim

Damn I'm dumb, english is not my first language and I wasn't sure what did freestanding linkage mean, thanks anon!
>>
>>1411564
I'm a native english speaker and that still confused me.
150kg would only cover the weight of the tent itself. Poles for the frame would be roughly 3 m long and not fit in the bag shown.
Where I am most just cut pine poles on site and lash them together.
>>
So this other offer with "no freestanding poles" doesn't have a frame either I guess? https://www.backpacking-united.com/es/nordisk-jotunheim-56-5-technical-cotton-tent
>>
that's worded very weirdly. it might be that it includes the poles, but they have to be footed or staked to stand, and therefore isn't "freestanding".
>>
>>1411598
Probably not.
Wall tents usually are not sold with them.

-Go take a hunter education course. Your state game and fish department will put it on. Many states it is free. Usually takes a full weekend. Depending on the state and your age it may be required to have this class before you actually hunt. There are a metric shit ton of rules that you need to know. If you go out and just start tearing up small game, and are out of season, and get caught, you may have a bad experience.

A good resource is a guy named Steve Rinella. He runs a site called meateater.com. He has published a few books on hunting. It gets into the details a newb needs to know. From how to find/stalk, field dress, and cook. He also has a series on Netflix and a podcast, both of which are excellent. Also join conservation groups like ducks unlimited, pheasants forever, National Wild turkey federation,etc. Local chapters usually have banquets, where they fundraise. It is a good way to meet people that hunt. Many of them will gladly take a novice out and show them how it is done. It may lead to access to private land.

Get a 22 and join a gun club. Learn how to shoot, practice. This is another social area where if you get to know people they may let you tag along. Some gun clubs put on social dinners, wild game feeds etc. Also, let your friends and family know you want to hunt. My uncle has hooked me up with some dudes he knows a couple of times to hunt ducks and geese.

Only photo of this weekend, didn't get anything yet sadly. Lots of activity around the area- bedding, rubs, tracks, etc- so hopefully I'll snag something this season if I keep at it. I think the big issue was my GF isn't super great at walking quietly just yet and she started to get really cold after a few hours of waiting, so we packed it in after a few hours. She'll learn, though.

Fucking these. This state is getting worse and worse due to yanks fucking with the laws and nogs shitting up neighborhoods. Now hipsters are starting to grow more and more. Used to be the only issue was rednecks, at least they were fun. I grew up in Mathews NC and am currently living in Wilmington NC. Wilmington is so bad I honestly don't want to revisit my home town for fear of finding it in ruin.

So I've been thinking abut going off grid for a while but the main thing that puzzles me is I want to have a low power desktop that I build myself but I keep running the numbers and having something that uses so much electricity is kind of impossible. Anybody have any insight that I haven't thought of? I figure that the average desktop uses about 200 watts a hour maybe and then there are phantom loads. So info would be cool. Thanks.

Went to the store to buy some shoes. They said that these shoes were for "Lightweight backpacking". And that is i were to go on wear a heavy backpack i should buy some other shoes as well. Anyone have experiece with heavy backpack and and "hiker" shoes?

My experience is heavy boots for heavy packs.
Im a hunter and soft boots are awersome for quiet stalking when I have <20bs of hunting gear/rifle but after loading up with another 50lbs+ of meat you quickly realise the hike out is not so enjoyable so Ive learnt to hunt with heavier boots.

Im pretty light at 165lb and run 30miles p/w in minimalist trainers so conditioning is not an issue.
>>
>>1410541
didn’t want to make a thread and I’m not sure wear to ask so i hope here will do

I have a pair of hiking boots that were decently stiff when i bought them but after a few years they’ve softened up and are now too soft for long hikes

There is still a decent amount of tread on them and they fit so comfortably that I don’t want to get rid of them. I want to know if there is anything i can do, perhaps stiff insoles?
>>
>>1411225
If theyre good/expensive you can get them resoled otherwise if theyre cheap just buy new boots and keep those for light duties.

>>1411428
thanks anon, they’re cemented so i doubt i can resole. Will just keep them for walking about town in the winter

Go urbexing. Know your city. Every nook & cranny. Learn to pick locks (bosnian bill youtube). Have bolt cutters
>>
>>1411479
The only way to be sure of that would be to conduct route reconaissance. So you'd send out a group who would walk a bit away from the canal to watch for threats and obstructions along the route. If you're just cruising along on the boat with no idea what's ahead of you you're pretty fucked because you're stuck in a narrow area with no cover, concealment or escape routes.

Thoughts?

All right out, help me be a good son and do something good for the world.

I'm trying to gift my aging father some good camping gear. He's been looking into a lot of titanium cookware for it's lightness. Any recommendations? How does the quality of snowpeak hold up?

Any tips on how to get a good deal?

You don't actually "cook" with titanium, you will burn your shit. You also don't use "cheap" titanium, as its made from "recycled titanium" from China, which isnt anywhere near as durable or as capable of tolerating high temperatures without literally melting on you.

Don't listen to these other faggots. Snowpeak is one of the better titanium cookset brands, and if your dad has been looking into getting a titanium set in the past couple months he will appreciate it as a christmas gift

unless he is maximum boomer then chances are he's already researched the differences between titanium, aluminum, and stainless

I use a diffuser to cook with. I have the Snow Peak set with 2 small fry pans. Great for sausages, eggs, and even making muffin cakes. If you don't the the heat goes straight through the metal and burns whatever you have. Leaving most people to think all you can do is boil water.
