Nobody has the spine to put import taxes on primary produce that wasn't sustainably harvested.

Looking for some leather mittens to wear over my normal gloves. I have some thinsulate fleece gloves, which are warm enough around 30-35 degrees, but any colder and they are not enough. Here are the ones I have:


I would like something leather that I can wear over these so that when I pick up anything wet or muddy, it doesn't soak my fleece gloves. Looking at something like this, but without the heavy pricetag:


thank you guys for any recommendations. Also, if you think I should just ditch the thinsulate fleece ones I have and just get better gloves, then I am open to that as well.
USGI trigger finger. Wore mine this morning doing a stand at 10°F. Have used them beaver trapping in subzero swamps for years, too.
The wool mitten liners they sometimes come with are worth their weight in gold.

Outdoor research alti mitts. Removable primaloft liner, goretex, leather palm, leash to cinch them to your wrists when you slip them off. The only thing they don’t have is a neoprene snot pad on the top. Still no regrets
>don’t have snot pad
An actual deal breaker for me lol

Anyone here make squeeze boxes for practicing prior to entering the cave? Personally, I think they are a must for safety. The idea of getting stuck or having your friend get stuck, dying, and you can't get past them to get back out doesn't sound appealing.

There was a Donald's comics where we went spelunking to find free water unfortunatly the "water" bloated him and he whas stuck, im scared of spelucking since.
The Cave Coomer
There is a type of cricket trap that fishermen and reptile owners use. It involves a small container with a thin slit or small holes of a certain size. The crickets can enter, gorge on the bait inside, but when they try to get out their bellies are too bloated to get through. Then you come along and empty the trap into a carrier to feed to your lizards or use as fish bait. I've not used, thought, nor heard about one since the 1980s, but this reminds me of those.

Do you think it's possible to hike from the canadian border to the mexican border and encounter fewer than 20 people?
Start in the idaho panhandle then follow the eastern borders of oregon, nevada (avoiding las vegas) and southern cali and you wont meet a single person. Might see some headlights in the distance but that's it.

What a dumb question. We talking about 5-6 month, of course you see more than 20 people on trail. Even more while refuel your supplies in towns/village unless you want live like a hobbo and eat fish and rats.

Just stop thinking about such shit and go out.

I've decided to take this question to /out/ rather than to /adv/, because I have found that I PERSONALLY am a greater voice of wisdom than the majority of responses people get on /adv/ and frankly I find that highly disturbing.
ANYWAY, look /out/, I want to experience things that will make me less likely to become confused over something like a masculine identity. One of my coworkers is a guy who grew up hunting and fishing and knowing how to take top care of his firearms, and honest to God, I want to learn how to be a more self-sufficient, self-protective, self-assured hunter the same way he is.

How the FUCK do I ask him to teach me how to fish and hunt? Should I just ask him straight up? Is there anything wrong with asking someone if they can let me join them to learn these things?

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. This is actually a ton of really solid advice. I guess I oughtta invest more thought and effort into at least PREPARING myself to not be a totally clueless dipshit, even if he reluctantly decides he's willing to take me on.

It'd make sense that after enough mental dedication and self-taught training that I'd muster the natural courage to ask for something I know for goddamn sure I am willing and able to be competent at.

Shit, I gotta save up some dosh for the firing range.

>How the FUCK do I ask him to teach me how to fish and hunt?
Is this a LARP fantasy or do you actually want to put in the work? Not memeing, this is a serious question

>This, take up shooting first,
Doesn't have to be shooting, but at least take something up on your own initiative and show that you've put in effort and are committed. Want to learn to fish? Buy a license and catch a bass or trout first. Then talk to your coworker and ask if you can tag along with them next time. Want to learn to shoot? Buy a gun first and at least learn some basic marksmanship skills. Want to learn to hunt? Learn to identify plants and animal signs.

You don't have to become an expert at any of these or come anywhere near equal to your coworker. But you have to demonstrate that you are willing to put in effort into learning these things on your own.

There's a reason why a lot of /out/ hates on LARP threads.
You can tell when someone's just a daydreaming larper from /v/ or /pol/, and it's clear they're not going to put much effort in beyond daydreaming on 4chan or ordering some meme knife online and never using it. But when someone demonstrates that have actually started to go outside and are willing to put the effort in on their own initiative, then /out/ is always ready to help.

Put it like this: If I had a co-worker ask me to take them fishing, and all they did was end up complaining that the reality did not match their daydreaming fantasies, I would mentally file them away as some video game LARPer and never offer to take them out again. If I had a co-worker who actually has tried fishing a few times before and wants to get better at it, I'll readily invite them out; having a fishing buddy is nice. But there's a big difference between hand-holding a LARPer who isn't willing to put any effort in themselves, versus having a buddy who simply needs to be caught up to speed on things.

Judging by those big toes in OP's picture he's already got it lol
Start using trekking poles, that's what they're for. And take it easy with the super long hikes, it takes your body a while to get used to them.
What did you do to treat it?
I'm still treating it, but used physical therapy stretches and targeted muscle building, targeted Tai Chi, and now (starting 2 months after initial injury) daily non strenuous walks.
Oh, meant to include that I got the PT stretches/exercises off YouTube. I had researched and positively IDd my issue as IT band and went from there.

The pain will be on the outer side of the knee if so. At first mine began when hiking downhill, if any of that is useful.

>You know GPS can record data leading up to the cave Anyways,
gf said he left it so he couldn't be tracked in the hole.

apparently he believed the same thing, otherwise why leave it outside the hole?

It just makes me smile to know there's idiots out there exploring caves and mines thinking their phone will save them if something goes wrong. Such a glorious delusion.
>otherwise why leave it outside the hole?
Perhaps he left it at that hole and went to some other hole? Because there's not much logic in leaving it right there at the entrance of the right place. If they knew the right hole, they most likely would find him.
Or maybe he faked his death and moved to another state to get rid of his gf.
Or whatever.
You can't track a cell phone that's turned off. And if they're likely to find him anyways, there's no reason to abandon the phone outside.

the only plausible reasons are -as you say- he faked his death, or he's an idiot that thinks a gps works underground.

Do you need to text your wife and her son your location at night?
Get one
>No, only if I am hurt yet still awake
Get a PLB
Have one and it is easy to use and worth it if you need to communicate with the outside world. There is an app you can get for your phone that will bluetooth with it so typing is reasonable. Otherwise you need to select letter by letter on the device itself which is annoying.

You can get the service in monthly chunks if you want which cuts back on the bill if aren't using it continuously.
What’s a track point or a location request?
Seems like you get nickeled and dimed for using half the features with the cheap plan?
