So my boots are going to die soon and I'm looking for new ones. I bought these without knowing too much about boots so I bought them at my usual size. And they work fine with a single pair of socks. But if you introduce custom insoles and/or second pairs of socks, they get too tight. So I'm thinking about getting a size bigger now.
But here's the deal. I live in a place where summers are really hot (35C +) and winters get fairly cold (close to 0C), with snow often involved. And I'm on a budget, so I can't have two pairs of boots. The boots are fine with light socks in the summertime. But if I get a size bigger to accomodate the winter, it will most likely end up causing blisters.

WTF do I do?

Also, as a sidenote, I keep hearing that the newer Salomon models are going to shit, is that true? My old pair is a quest 3 and they were pretty awesome, any of youse tried the quest 4?

i want the opposite.
i just want a normal midsole, a normal heel toe drop, but my shoes/boots to not be shaped like chinese foot binding devices.
hiking boots aren't dress boots and its pretty dumb how many wars and centuries that fashion oriented design cues have survived.
there are some like that, I don't remember the names of the specific ones but I watched a youtube video(I think posted in one of these threads) with a comparison of a bunch of wide toebox/barefoot hiking shoes and boots and distinctly remember there were
>thin sole, no drop, wide toebox
>thick sole, no drop, wide toebox
>thick sole, some drop, wide toebox
definitely a step up. I like my la sportivas. wish they had more room in the toe box.
What's the best brand of these usgi hot weather boots? I swear I remember some anon talking about how the USAF ones were best for hiking but I can't remember the model to look for.
>WTF do I do?
Don't buy your "usual size." Buy a boot that fits and is comfortable. Try the boot on with the socks you expect to wear with the boot. Take the socks with you to the store if they aren't appropriate for the current season. If you live somewhere with real winters, you are going to need 2 pairs of boots - one for winter and one for the rest of the time. There's no way around this.

I can't stand this gatekeeping, judgemental, hard-headed prick. 90% of his ideas are retarded and he's a hypocrite because he got a small loan for $1,000,000 from his parents to get where he is. He is TRUE toxic masculinity, and I don't believe in toxic masculinity.
I remember watching him oil his axes and then after the George Floyd shit he put out a video like "why I don't trust police" or something and he just went downhill from there. I'd literally rather listen to Sam Hyde who is at least realistic and isn't going to tell you to just take your backhoe and your impact driver and quickly make a swimming pool.
Lol how is it bad not to trust police? Double digit IQ highschool graduates who have a gun on their hip, a chip on their shoulder, and a "us vs them" mentality where they're literally LOOKING to get people in trouble. Either way Sam Hyde isn't the spastic Nazi you probably think him to be. He stopped trying to redpill anyone on anything years ago since they cancelled his show. Now he's just grateful to kinda be in the limelight and has publicly stated he's giving up the redpill stuff since he doesn't think he can change people's minds. All he does now is just the same kind of nonsensical "shock" humor you'd see in an adult swim channel, aka stupidity with zero meaning behind it.
Idolizing the mentally ill is a hallmark of a particular branch of childish thought.
>if it works is it stupid?

Leather jacket, beany (currently wearing), thin cotton gloves, mud stomping boots, phone, wallet, keys, clothes on my back.

Depends on what your definition of "outdooring" is. I've walked down to swimming holes in the nude before.
That's how you get put on the sex offender registry.
I mean full immersion outdooring, like deep-woods camping. Not just strolling down a park, I mean full on outdooring for at least one full day.
the one nice thing about living in alabama is that during the summer you can literally bring absolutely nothing. there was a super bright full moon last night so I went for a midnight hike. the weather was so nice i just fell asleep on a rock and woke up at near morning. would have been nicer with a blanket, but it clearly didn't stop me.

>I just ignore the pain against my skin because I want to look cool
Very pleased with the $25 wool commando sweater I bought from sportsmansguide.com last fall. I wore it nearly every day last winter and it's none the worse for wear. I think they were ordered for a police department that never paid for them or something like that.
>there's a reason most don't wear it anymore
good goy
>I wear wool all the time two thirds of the year and Im never bothered by the scratchiness.
its a genetic thing. some people are some people aren't.
the fairer skin you are the higher your chances of being sensitive to it and this board is full of crackas.
there's wools out there without lanolin and barbs but they're a bit more limited in what garments you can make from them, or expensive, etc etc.
you might be allergic. if not your just a massive pussy with kleenex thick skin who needs to go out more

Good week for mushrooms ahead edition

>Community-based tools for IDing and Cataloguing
The Bolete Filter: https://boletes.wpamushroomclub.org/
Inaturalist app (directly draws data from mushroomobserver but is itself a more generalized platform)
Google Scholar: Massive resource for papers and studies regarding current clinical and indigenous uses of medicinal fungi.

If you expect to get a remotely meaningful ID here, you need to be taking photos of the mushroom as you found it, on it's substrate, a clear shot of the top and side view of it, and a clear shot of the gills/pores/stipe/stem or otherwise the entire undercarriage of the mushroom. every detail of the encounter helps, where, when, what was the weather, etc.
If you want people who do this for a living to give their guess on ID's, take all of the above and make quality observations on Mushroomobserver.

This science needs as much redundant ID and loacation data as possible, any observation has value and is a meaningful contribution that takes a few more seconds than just taking a picture of the pretty thing you saw in the woods.

Oh cool good luck man. Oysters are very vigorous and forgiving so you should be able to make it work pretty easily. You can also make lime pasteurized straw logs using poly tubing, which is basically the same as the bucket grow but you can see the colonization progress better since its in a clear bag. Here's a decent guide on that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xHD8XHcYxY
Yeah for sure I'm not trying to downplay maks ability to consistently put out big chunkers but I mean for like 300g+ club fruits.
Gotcha.. I haven't seen a stable 150g mushroom mush less a 300g monster! 50-100g tubs I've seen, but those 150g plus monsters are usually mutants and the trait never transfers.

I might have been able to get larger mushrooms with more substrate and a larger tub. But the large mutant qualities didn't transfer at all....neither did the clustering. That's the problem with cloning from mutants...you never know what you're gonna get..

This guy is right. If you have a healthy cat, it's coyotes, not foxes, that you would want to worry about.
My cat chases the foxes down the street from me, is your cat some sort of a faggot? My cat is pure white and weighs 14 pounds, he looks like a fairy and he still fucks the foxes up, your cat must be a total faggot cat.
Lol cats are faggots anyways, but my cats live in harmony with our foxes. Years of having outside cats and seeing foxes right in my backyard multiple times, no accidents yet. Don't go killing shit willy nilly like some kind of wannabe cowboy boomer, don't harm them unless you actually have a good reason.
Oh you told him, huh? Did you try telling him again? Maybe he didn't hear you the first time
What is the fox doing that makes it a problem?

how many kg/lbs the heaviest you ever carry during your hike /out/? where to, what backpack, and what do you carry inside?
32 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
Last hike was three nights. 28kg including about 6 litres of water. No sources of water near camps so had to collect, filter and carry during the day. 23kms was biggest day. About 6kg of ham radio gear including batteries. Two radios cos my Mum lets me... After a while you just get used to it. Starting off is always a pain. The pack is some chep heavy shit I got of Amazon.

What I really want is a pack with a sort of half pouch in the top of the main compartment to put heaviest, most dense stuff, so it can be right up against your back, up high. With a securing/compression strap to hold the radio gear in the pouch. That way I don't have to stuff light weight things down low and put heavy stuff on top. Pain when you want to get something out and have to unload whole pack.

I'm 100kg so the 28kg pack wasn't excessive. Did get some radio contacts in the hundreds of kilometres rang on the 40m band so happy bout that. QRP in thick forest and wasn't chasing DX. One day I'm going on a hike and planning a zero day to sit and chase DX...
What sort of radio gear were you bringing with you? I’ve Got the license but don’t really have anything bigger than a handheld I could really bring with me.
One was an RS-918 and the other was an FT817. Battery pack consists of four 40160 LiFePO4 cells in series. The radios don't mind the higher voltage. Antenna is a linked end fed wire that covers 40m and up, counterpoise is about 7m. I use a zm-2 tuner. The antenna is home made from a design off the web and wound onto a couple of kite string winders that I made out of grey acryIic sheet. They've got one slot for the antenna element and another for the cord I use to string it up. I usually put the wire antenna out in an inverted v.
I can live a full life with an 80lb, very bulky pack. Tent, Bed, toilet, shower, rifle, water.

I once backpacked with a 70lbs pack but it was flat ground about 5 miles into a base camp where we stayed for 5 days and explored a bunch of canyons in the San Rafael Swell in Utah. I wore shitty boots that tore my heels up and suffered with giant blisters the entire trip but i powered through and had a great time.

I posted a photo a while ago that someone liked so much they made a drawing of it and posted it here and I loved it. I was thinking maybe anons could post their BEST/favorite /out/ photos from this year and other anons who draw or paint could make little sketches or drawings or even paintings of the photos and then post them. It would be cool if we could get lots of people to participate.
You could even request specific landscapes to draw like a waterfall scene in winter, for example.

What about it? The Rhine river and its delta are a very densely populated area, as is common for major rivers in the Old World.
Where is the map from?
Blackouts! Well, around here that doesn't happen too often.
Good point, if you look at the map though, there's a weird bright delta up there in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and such. Doesn't quite work out when you look at population density I believe.

Characterizing Uncle Ted as against technology is a woeful misrepresentation of him and that his true stance was being against the social and cultural effects caused by the current industrial society. I think the greatest example of a society that makes industrialism work is the Skaven from Warhammer Fantasy. They are free of feelings of inferiority which are the root of all leftist thought, each one is the nietzschean uberrodent with an unstoppable will to power and they engage in no surrogate activities as each one is fully dedicated to not just surviving but thriving.

>Ultimately stunning in its revelations, Lutz Dammbeck's THE NET explores the incredibly complex backstory of Ted Kaczynski, the infamous Unabomber. This exquisitely crafted inquiry into the rationale of this mythic figure situates him within a late 20th Century web of technology - a system that he grew to oppose. A marvelously subversive approach to the history of the Internet, this insightful documentary combines speculative travelogue and investigative journalism to trace contrasting countercultural responses to the cybernetic revolution.

>Laurel Canyon in the 1960s and early 1970s was a magical place where a dizzying array of musical artists congregated to create much of the music that provided the soundtrack to those turbulent times. Members of bands like the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, the Monkees, the Beach Boys, the Mamas and the Papas, the Turtles, the Eagles, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, Steppenwolf, Captain Beefheart, CSN, Three Dog Night, Alice Cooper, the Doors, and Love with Arthur Lee, along with such singer/songwriters as Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, James Taylor, Carole King, Jackson Browne, Judi Sill and David Blue, lived together and jammed together in the bucolic community nestled in the Hollywood Hills.
>But there was a dark side to that scene as well.
>Many didn't make it out alive, and many of those deaths remain shrouded in mystery to this day. Far more integrated into the scene than most would care to admit was a guy by the name of Charles Manson, along with his murderous entourage. Also floating about the periphery were various political operatives, up-and-coming politicians, and intelligence personnel - the same sort of people who just happened to give birth to many of the rock stars populating the canyon. And all of the canyon's colorful characters - rock stars, hippies, murderers, and politicos - happily coexisted alongside a covert military installation.
>Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon is the very strange, but nevertheless true story of the dark underbelly of a hippie utopia.

Didn't even expect rain today. Managed 3 spotties, 2 on darter head+fluke, 1 on fat albert. An old couple walking their dog found a jerkbait maybe 30 feet from where I was so they gave it to me.
You can, but if you're fishing around heavy cover or snags you will have trouble.

I've caught a bunch of ~40inch pike on my light cranking rod while fishing for perch, and with braid and a fluoro leader im not worried about getting broken/bitten off, but the fish is 100% in control until it gets tired.
I wouldnt target pike on ultralight though, that sounds pointless and not very fun
