why do allot or most forest in germany have cleared undergrowth
is it really all cleared by humans for hunting and to stop wildfires?
funnily enough theres a lot of it where I am but I guess old ass beech trees and half dead spruce plantations dont get much of it so its mostly in younger growth areas
You absolute mongoloid
Some forests look all the same, especially homogenous secondary forests in certain regions and those with many invasive species, but other times they can look quite unique.

Fjällräven Singi 48 vs Savotta Jääkäri L.
Help me!
apparently the stench is deeply rooted, even though it went a bit away. once we have minus degrees i will put it outside over night, alternatively repeat the process but with a cap or two of bleach
The M is 1230g while L is 2400g, what are you talking about.
I just bought the blue one a few days ago, fielded the Bora 65 in Milsim west which held up and kept my gear comfortably on my back during ruck outs. My red alpha is nice for ultralight outings of 2-3 days spans.

I have a good setup with my therma rest and winter sleeping bag I just always pick shitty spots to sleep.
Where is that?

You can bring your electronics with you. At least a laptop with movies, tv series and other things to watch during the nights and also speakers to listen to music. I know there are some very isolated places where there are no internet but that will change soon when Elon Musk finish building that Starlink shit and you can have internet everywhere in the planet so you will be able to shitpost on 4chan from the top of Mount Everest.

Why there are no farmers on 4chan?

Oh man the "crash box" transmissions in pic-related-era are awful and dangerous. Driving them on the open road feels like playing a Daytona USA arcade machine with that big metal 4-speed H shifter you bash into gear with no clutch and zero force feedback. You just go CLUNK from second to third and pray that you've matched the revs right, because you won't know until 5 seconds later if it's successfully shifted or if the second and third gears have seized together on an angle causing the whole 10 ton piece of shit to screech to a halt. Fuck Versatile my dude.

Luckily I don't have to stress about the particular tractor I'm talking about anymore because it sat parked in a field in the rain for a few days and just caught fire out of boredom
Man livin the dream
They're too busy farming to waste time on some Mongolian basket weaving forum.
Some of them have few others to talk to as well. Im sure they have a couple of hours to shitpost

What, are you scared of a little cold?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
atleast 40% of them do
With Cummins diesel, it's 100%
I wish it was colder.
Just tested my snow making setup but didn't get any snow. I'm hoping it gets a little colder tonight and it works.
It's 43 degrees celsius outside at the moment, went to the beach this morning and now amhiding inside in the aircon waiting for a sea breeze to cool things off...
Just tested again, still no snow forming from the sprayer.
Kinda sucks. It's 28°F right now and I was hoping that would be cold enough. It might not get any colder this winter.

Welcome to /wood/

Post your saws, hatchets, axes, forestry, felling, milling or other activities here.

I’ve been cutting ponderosa pines on my property. Can anyone recommend a good gas woodsplitter to get through 10 cords of wood?

OP here. This is my second last post to this thread, as I am going to a new two-night trip. I will make new thread for it, as this is somehow run over by few anons with /pol/ tier discussion.

Activity was training for recce-style work. I will do this new trip with semi-military setting too, meaning that I will train similar skills but I wont be full-larp this time.

Not this time. If I see something interesting, I will.

>Below 8

Anon I dont know if I can help you. If finnish autumm temperatures are too cold, I dont know how I could help you with winter. Multiple layers of clothing, warm footwear and movement is warmth. There is no motivation really, as it us just useless feeling. Self-discipline will keep you going.

I remember once when it was almost too cold, as I was in the military. Temeoratyre dropped below - 32° celsius and I was cold. We got our tanks to start their warmup, but I was amazed to see that the hot exhaust gasses just floated few meters up and "froze", they chilled so rapidly that they ended up forming cloud barrier just few meters from ground. That was cold.

Finn canteens are pretty good. Shape and mouth are improvements, and the clip is nice.
Multiple layers of clothing is shit-tier advice that gets you killed.

I used to have fuckloads of layers on and was so cold while homeless in the winter.

Then I just bought a thermal base layer + a cover all rated for -40 and ever since then I've been really warm and that's it.

Layers restrict movement and squeeze heat out of you.

Better to have only two layers but you pick the right things for those layers.

Do you forage anything in the spring - morels, ramps, ferns, nettles?

What are you looking forward to doing when the weather finally warms a little in March?

How do you handle the snow - micro-spikes - special gear/shoes?

Anything state other than Alaska being 1st is generally BS. Although AZ, UT, NM, and OR are acceptable in the top 10.
Hope it works out for you Anon
I've been interested in sustainable living for a while. I live in a city, but I'm slowly trying to incorporate aspects of it into my life. When the pandemic is over in my country, I'm hoping to buy a small block of land in the bush, and head there on weekends, and slowly live out my irl minecraft dreams by building a small, self sustaining cottage from scratch where I can larp as a homesteader for parts of the year. My current projects:

>Balcony garden for herbs and fruit
>Currently getting to the exciting part of making a sourdough starter; going to start baking with it in the next few days, hopefully leading to a constant source of fresh bread
>Getting really interested in shurbs (the drink) as a way or preserving fruit
I'm currently making the shrub with store brought fruit, but mint I grew myself, and my short term goal is to make one entirely of produce I grew myself
>Building a very small foundry to start converting my waste metal into metal ingots for future projects

Any other projects I might be able to start, lads? I really enjoy pursuing knowledge, and I think that this entire range of topics is a fuckload of fun. I'm thinking finding a way to produce my own sugar and vinegar might be a nice way to expand my options.

As an aside, I'm glad I found this thread; I've been searching forums, but the vast majority of them either descend into literal neo nazism within like a month, and haven't been touched since 2012, or they're the complete opposite and just a bunch of hipster people talking about getting in touch with nature by managing to not kill a monsterra that they then proceded to take a million insta pictures with.
I'm definitely larping, but I'm pretty honest about it and preface my posts with it. I'm an apartment dweller, but I'm still trying to incorprate bits of sustainable living into my life, like gardens to grow my own produce, or trying to make my own shit like bread to reduce reliance on supermarkets.

Can post pics of my precious herby bois or my sourdough starter as proof, but they're underwhealming as fuck. Other shit like my preserving projects are basically just fruit in liquid, so wouldn't really prove shit either. I think anybody who is legitimately homesteading is most likely out doing their shit, not itt. That doesn't mean it's worthless though; the concepts seem to be pretty similar to small scale shit, just scaled up massively. Plus it's gonna be pretty good as a containment thread.
No it isn't, and everybody on this board despises the threads that you start or the topics you want to discuss. Either assimilate, or go back to /pol/

Hey /out/ I know some of you have chickens here.

What do you do for water? A buddy of mine just recently got these water bucket things with little pockets. It looks nice in theory, but they fill up with so much gunk and dirt, and we've got missy pictured jumping all over them which probably isn't helping.

I get out there pretty often and clean them out, but I don't feel like I'm out there enough, and because of their small size it's going to be easier if I just drop the whole system and give them a regular bowl or something (much easier to clean).

What do you guys use?

Sorry about the angle on the photo, I had to poke my phone through fence panel.

That's why you just kick it over and refill it every morning
>just dump it all and refill it
>with shit dripping off the top lip into it
>for them to shit in again 5 min later
Screw a bolt into the old holes with some rtv/silicone to seal them and drill new holes.
I use pic related.
I have hardline pvc into the pens with a spigot and hose.
I originally had these mounted to the wall and such but they were too much work to clean.
Now I just bolt them to a scrap piece of 4x4. When they get dirty I just pick it up and dump it and then set it back down and they refill themselves.
My set-up is a 4 litre icecream container with a dripper from the retic into it. There are two different drippers from two different retic circuits to make sure they get water even if one fails. The retic overflows the container ever so slightly and the container is up against the fence on a slab so the amount of dirt that gets in is limited. Still need to look at it every other day to make sure they have water. If you can't go and give your chooks fresh water each day anon, maybe you shouldn't have them?

6/10, good consistency but the colouration is a bit too light and the break in the middle indicates poor technique.

4/10, decent texture but too many pieces and worrying colouration. Also somewhat lazy composition.

The actual turd is a 2/10 but the technique and composition is 8/10

5/10, respectable girth but the colouration is still too light and the TP on the turd ruins the composition. Also lackluster texture and technique but I'm giving you style points for the TP holder.

Absolutely rancid turd but the composition is very nice and it radiates a Chadly energy. 7/10.
