i was forced to go to mt rushmore once. it was crowded and awful but there was something cathartic about the disgusting hordes of people. fat families all wearing the same shirt, lost old people, dads trying to tell their sons something serious about democracy but they clearly don’t remember much from 8th grade, the stench of the combined sweat of thousands of people, scout troops that clearly only go to places like this and never camp, and all those people for whom this, somehow, this granite monstrosity and associated throngs of people and stinking bathrooms and screaming kids, was the highlight on their tour of america.
Whats funny is you don't realize you are just like the people you despise
Haha nice one copying a cringy Holden Caulfield monologue from The Catcher in the Rye
Holden Caulfield was definitely a Catcher. Get it? Not a pitcher.

We went to the Grand Canyon then Zion in June. Both were crowded, but Zion really felt jam packed with people while the Grand Canyon felt a little more spread out. These where day hikes; I don’t know what it was like further up the trail.

Has anyone really been far even as decided to consoom so much gear? EDC "culture" and outdoor gear consumerism truly has infested even what was probably once one of only explicitly non-consumerist hobbies there was. I recently sold a bunch of my gear dirt cheap on armslist; it wasn't even about the money, but not having it hang around and collect dust was a huge weight off my mind and ended up being worth far more to me than the money I recouped.

Struck a nerve? I’m a self employed laborer myself and half of my town already knows me so I wont be running out of work any time soon. Not that I’d want to either. Te ol’ rona might put me on vacation though, but that’s okay since I have about a years salary on my bank account.
Why would you want to stop working as soon as possible?
You either hate your work yourself or you know that you are so underqualified that you dread the idea of doing a McJob for the rest of your life and just hope that you will hit it big with crypto or some shit.
I think it’s very likely that I’ll be doing this job for as long as I’m physically able to.
Exactly, you can't plan for the future because you are a 90 iq grunt and know you will work until you drop since you blow every penny you get. Nothing wrong with your coping that 40 yearolds are rich from using their brain while you are already an old geezer at 30 because you work shit jobs. At least the townies will take advantage of you and pay you $10 to scrub their toilets to keep you in weed
We're all faggots here. If you like your kit and use it, that's what counts. I dropped £140 on a coat from our dear Finnish friends. A lot of posters here would say that's overpriced and I just need to layer more or fashion a cloak out of a blanket and wax it. But, I use it almost every day. It's tough, hard wearing, and cosy. It's not LARP if it's real.

Burying the crown?
That might be it, is this too deep? If I remove some dirt from around the crown can I save it?
Give it a try. Digging it up wont hurt and plant those two further apart
>Give it a try. Digging it up wont hurt
Should I try scraping off anything that looks like rot from the crown?
> and plant those two further apart
You know, I never noticed that those were two separate plants. I guess there were two plants per container, I hope there's enough room in my container

Where'd you get it?
A couple of years back I was after a raw wool sweater, as in the kind that repel water and are stinky and greasy. Couldn't find any at that time. Seen on on etsy since but I try and limit myself to one warm jacket-type purchase per year and I have copped other things.

judging by your post...you are getting gayer right along with it.
Berries are a easy plant to grow for a noob. If you mix primocane with floricane raspberries you can get fruit from june until frost, and your first year too. There's little to fuck up with berries. Do you even grow bro?
No that's why kommandos come here and frequently make fun of you. I've seen better camping and prepping advice offhand on /k/ than here. This board is frequently outshined by a weapons board. Sad to say but just the way it is. I do like the comfy /out/ pics here though

Don't be poor, keep yourself healthy and fit.

For me the best prep is being wealthy.
So I'm just becoming that.
Combine this with a "urban homestead", hunting und a "mustachian" lifestyle I am just confident in myself dealing with whatever life throws at me.

Don't get DPS! Not worth it at all. They sell factory manufactured skis at custom ski prices
We dont really have powder over here, at least not like tge west coast. Im in newengland. Home of ice and more ice.
I looked at your post history, and you have some serious issues to work out. The amount of homophobic, transphobic comments on your profile is seriously disgusting. I have downvoted you and recommend you seek therapy to work on your hate and anger issues.
My ankle has finally recovered enough to ski again! Won't be able to hit it as hard but it'll still be great to go. I have 34 days in the Cottonwoods but have not been out since early January. I'm stoked to get back out again especially now that things should be a lot less bare.
be safe mate, definitely feel it out slowly. you want to be able to to ski hard next season no?

Natural remedies and herbalism are usually overexaggerated or underrated, but I think most sane people can agree that certain herbs have benefits to Humans.

>Sage is good for your stomach and throat
>Saint Johns Worth is a mood stabiliser
>Marigold is antiseptic and makes great oinments
>Camomile helps against swelling, tea is calming
>Wormwood has a lot of benefits
>Cannabis, beyond recreational use, can help with chronical pain and trauma
>Poppy (Papaver Somniferum, at least) can be used as pain medication

and many more, of course.

While I was playing kingdom come deliverance (bear with me...), and looked into alchemy there, it struck me at rather realistic. Combine plants and herbs in alcohol or oils to extract whatever it is that makes the plant healthy and beneficial, making tinctures, drinks, teas and so on from them.

Are there any resources on this? An actual "alchemy" book, that describes how to extract those things and preserve them? I reckon tea is a good example of how to make herbs last basically stabally forever, but I mean like a repository of what plants to tea-a-lize, how to make creams and tinctures of certain drinks, (alcohol is often used with wormwood), what plants to mix for what diseases, and so on.

OK I've read this book, this is specifically about poisonous plants / baneful herbs. It's wordy, the author likes to hear himself talk and is less a reference book than it is a collection of lore and practices surrounding the herbs.
This is a witchcraft book, nothing like a 'le wiccan spellbook' but it has a lot of folklore and history of the herbs.
Honestly though I wasn't impressed, I can find so many more books and refferences that are so much more helpful than this. Schulke is kind of a hard read as mentioned before. He uses a lot of flowery words to explain simple concepts and its so obvious he thinks he's super smart.
If you're looking for something dealing with poisonous plants that will give you recipes and things to try out this isn't it.
That's what I expected from the visuals of the book cover honestly, I think the modern herbal dispensatory looks the most promising but i couldn't find it yet
Macerated oil of Saint John's Worth is also good to calm down (sun)burn, itching from insect bite and small wound, it's anti inflamatory and antalgic
Skin should not be exposed to sunlight right after application tough as it is also a photosensitizer

Also Thyme is antiseptic and good to use for respiratory or digestive ailments
how do you make the oil? how do you make oils in general? and cremes? I think you use beeswax for cremes which is good because i have a large constant supply of that, but oils? I'd like to use mostly self made/foraged resources
macerated oil is easy to make, it's not essential oil where you have to distilate and shit, you just need to put your plant parts (aerial parts for st johns wort) in a jar, add the oil (olive oil is good) and let it soak for a while.
For st johns worth cover up the jar with a sock or something and let it sit exposed to sun for at least a month, occasionnaly open the lid and stir it up. The oil will get a red taint after a while. Then you just have to filter the plants with a clothe. If you want a cream yes beeswax is good, just heat up gently the oil and add wax, around 12g wax for 100mL oil

Honestly looked that up and its pretty cool, only thing I dislike is the cost.

If I'm paying half as much as LASIK I figure I might as well pay all of LASIK and just never have to worry about it again, you know?
That article is pretty cool man. I get my bad eyesight from my parents and always kinda assumed it was generic for everyone and never realized that certain factors like time spent outdoors could contribute to better or worst eyesight. Guess it makes sense just never considered it.
I don't trust LASIK but you do you.
I wear acuvue oasis, so I only have to change mine once a month (or nine months when I am out).
Do yiu seriously keep using a single pair for 9 months? Any drawbacks?

My friend Trev, for the last 9 years he's been everywhere with me from hikes to camping and mushroom hunting.

I was told he has cancer in his spleen yesterday, best case scenario he has a year.

Were going camping at the weekend, fuck the lockdown! We were meant to do hadrians wall last year.

I'm going to make as many memories as I can before he goes, any tips on things to do?

Make the most of them people.

Alright missing 411 skeptics. Tell me how a hunter who's crazy enough and skilled enough to hunt Tigers in Russia gets taken out in Canada.
Bart Schleyer hires a guide plane into the Yukon to hunt moose. Pilot returns but Bart is a no show. Pilot nopes out.
Mounties called in and find nothing. Freinds are concerned and fly their own asses in. Find his camp intact. Food and all. Later find boat. Find a dry bag with Bart's gear, bow, and quiver set up in a spot obviously meant to call in a moose. Later find bloody hat. Call in mounties again. They find some bone fragments. Pants intact with no blood. No other clothes. His food still left. No evidence of struggle.

How much time happened between these?
Retards with big calibre rifles think that killing a predator animal from 500 yards away is a feat comparable to people killing them with spears and bows back in the day.
They’re working on the tiger, it’s not dead. The dude was a wildlife biologist. Notice the tarp (to keep the tiger off the snow and make the tiger easier to position) and the people milling about in the background. The lady looks like she’s working on the tiger drawing samples and the guy is holding the tigers head up, which you have to do to an anesthetized animal so they don’t aspirate. Source: I’ve done that kind of work before on elk. Similar protocols.
Because all he did was guided safaris to pose with dead tigers so he could pretend to be a outdoorsman. He then believed his own bullshit and fucked up in the wilds.
>mental gymnastics
What? How is it mental gymnastics to assume a seasoned hunter wouldn't know to keep the food sealed? Or not to bring perishables? Most food people bring will be dried in some way so you don't need a cooler or anything else to keep the food from rotting or giving off a strong odor. Dude probably just went to bathe or something and slipped and cracked his head.

I just want to be a monkey.
You'll need to know some programming as a GIS tech becuse you're doing a lot of database management with no GUI, and otherwise interacting with a lot of ancient government hardware. ArcGIS isn't the only software you'll be using. Half of the shit you do involves writing your own batch scripts.

I wouldn't go into GIS unless you've got a job lined up already, or else are entering a training program with guaranteed employment. Hiring cycles are few and far between.
Also the few employers who are hiring for GIS want multidisciplined generalists to replace a whole team of dead or retired old dudes. You're going to need to brush up on cartography, graphic design, civil engineering, et cetera.
This. Jesus fuck why can’t they make it at least somewhat intuitive and data entry friendly. Would also be great if they didn’t piece the code together with chewing gum and duct tape.
Do you like arcane error messages that may as well be in Esperanto and googling problems only to find pages and pages of people saying “same?”
if you enjoy spending all your time sat indoors infront of a computer sure
