he got up on his hind legs then scattered off into the woods
wish i had a gun,
working in my hoop house, probably weeding in between eggplants or something. a coyote peeks its head in the entrance and looks at me, then walks away

I remember a while back on pol there was a Canada is collapsing general where they were posting pics of $30 bags of milk and claiming Canada's economy is collapsing.

Living cost is very affordable(excluding rent) in most populated areas but the farther out you go like Yukon, NW territories, even northern BC shit gets expensive fast.
Western Canada is the best if your into out. Avoid the big cities as they cost a lot. Small towns are the best

fuck you new jersey niggers i will slash your tires if i see you here again

Yes they grow in J*rsey, check inaturalist they will have the locations mapped out. Pawpaws like heavily forested areas close to river banks, but not right on the water.

They grow in the sourlands near cattail brook, in your toxic waste dump of a state containment zone.
They also grow in Timber Creek Park in Camden, and Mercer County /Rosedale park near princeton.


If you're a south J*rsey nigger, they also grow in fairmont park in filthadelphia, there's a few dedicated trees by the jap garden. That's a guaranteed spot if you don't want to actually search for them. And filthadelphia is basically new jersey already, both geographically and culturally.

your state has more niggers that jersey, stay mad

On sunday I fucked up and ended up touching some giant hogweed with the back of my hands. I didn't even know about this plant until I woke up this morning with a long blister forming where it scratched me, and its gotten worse and more painful throughout the day.

I'm pretty sure I've gotten off easy as I have one large blister on one hand, and a tiny blister on the other, but don't have anything on my legs or on my arms. I do have a couple rashes on my legs and on my arms, but hopefully that's just standard irritation and not from the hogweed.

Any of you have any experiences with this plant? What am I in for here? Lesson learned: wear pants, wear long sleeves, don't touch plants you can't identify.

No but I got bit on the nut by a mosquito twice now. If you are wearing shorts or light pants and crouching it pulls them taunt over your balls which gives mosquitos a chance to go drilling. Hope that saves another anon from an involuntary suqq.

I’m going on my first solo road trip with my dogs to the Rockies tomorrow. I wanna hike mount elbert at some point. Would that be too strenuous for an 8 year old medium sized dog? Would elevation change be too much. I’m a retard so word nicely please
1 reply and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
It's possible but I wouldn't even bother attempting it. You would have to get a harness for something as small as and as wriggly as a cat, and then keep their harness leashed up all the time. I imagine if you got them used to this as a kitten, they would adapt to it, but good luck trying to teach a five year old cat to wear a harness and be restrained on walks.
Don't worry the dog will outlast you by miles with all the gear you would be wearing (depending on the length of the trip obviously).

However the dogo will be so excited it could potentially strain its body too much and this has happened to me (dog had similar age). I even had to take a day off from walking because of it.

So my advice is take a long leash and limit the running so that the dog can last the whole trip. Be smart about the water situation. When you go for fetching wood for a fire never let your dog follow you in elevation also happened to me. When you parkour elevation chain your dog because the chances of the dogo slipping of the hillside are just too big when they get excited.

Lastly give it a sturdy necklace with a metal container containing your phone number. Again depending on the length of the hike.
For clarity I mean very steep elevation; when you leave the trail at night to fetch some wood in some very rough terrain. Normal elevation on the trail is no problem for them.
depends how much your cat likes you I suppose, but probably an awful idea
I know a wook who has taken his cat hiking up a few of the easier ADK mountains more than several times. Idk how. I have very well behaved cats and the hate the outdoors and just cyclone on harnesses
