Not a larp thread. My family has about 23 acres of 85/15 mixed pasture/woodland in the countryside in the south, that is currently being leased to a cow farmer. It is already surrounded by barbed wire fence, so no costs there. I want to try my hand at animal husbandry. I know I won't make a fortune but apparently there could be enough to get by. Especially given that I don't need to buy land or put up a fence for the most part.

What steps should I be taking to get into this? I'm tired of waging and want to retvrn to the land.
Make a living? Not on that sized acreage. Reduce cost of living? Yes easily. You will have to put up more fence to rotate them for grazing and a pole barn would be a good investment for kidding but frankly a few cows would be a better investment. No pole barn or extra fencing necessary. Especially if you live in a country with higher regulations and a smaller muslim population. The goat market just isn’t great. Buy a few black angus heifers and inseminate them each year. Castrate the bulls and feed them up to steers for your own consumption and market sale to cover costs. After a few years cull the older cows and replace them with younger breeding stock. Cull nonproducers immediately. If they aren’t making more calves they are a liability.
Where in the south? Know your market

Hello Anon goat rancher here! You can make a living but chances are you will use the goats for supplemental income and make your land multifaceted, or like many goat rancher you will do it “part time”. I would be mindful about barb wire fencing for a couple reasons goats can get tetanus, and small goats and kids will just go under the fence. I would suggest range wire with barb wire on top, or electric high tensile fencing at least 42” tall preferably 48”. I recommend Going to OSU Goat Boot Camp YouTube, and Wild Onion Creek Ranch’s website for Articles. I will try to answer basic questions it has been very profitable for me. Here is a sample budget I used to get started.

Is tarp suitable for mountain(10kfeet+) camping? What would be the best setup for rainy and windy weather? Ground sheet, yes or no? Square or rectangle design?

It's not gonna fall
I had a similar question and will post here rather than make a new thread-

I was thinking of one of these hammock shelters for a backpacking trip. Are they any good? I’m more concerned about mosquitos than I am rain, I figure a tarp over top should be good and comfy.
The bug nets work well. Make sure to have a proper underquilt if the temps are below like 50f.
Is tarp+bivy peak?
also, on bivy sacks. All the sites seem to say the goretex ones are the best, but all the places around me sell non-goretex ones.
Even the military goretex ones aren't on Amazon anymore (canada)
Is it even worth getting a non-goretex one?
>Is tarp suitable for mountain(10kfeet+) camping?
Yes, but only with closed setups that are close to the ground. Otherwise, strong winds will blow it away. And a closed setup is inferior to a tent.

>Is it even worth getting a non-goretex one?
Goretex was the first membrane, but it's far from the only one by now. The other membranes work just as well.

Anyways, I recently acquired a large Alice pack for $20 just like pic related. I was wondering how I should go about putting a 2.5 liter hydration bladder into it? Is there a simple modification I can do, and if it's not so simple, what's a better way to carry water? I don't want to use those Bpa filled GI issue canteens.

I work as a Wilderness EMT and you get a lot of Heart attack scares form people who have had one before that end up just being AP.

He was probably experiencing Angina Pectoris, since he had a heart attack previously he must have a partially clogged artery and when he was exerting himself the heart got a decrease in oxygen supply and began to send pain signals to his brain, it's the exact same form of pain, crushing pressure which is why he recognized it from his heart attack. Which is why they show the medic give him Aspirin, Aspiring and Nitroglycerin can actually help with AP but won't do shit to a heart attack. The most common time people experience AP is if they have had a heart attack or weakened heart and then go out and do something physical, I noticed him talk about his chest pain after he had gone hiking around looking for gourse, that plus the stress of being alone and worrying about food 100% gave him AP.

ITT: nothing but haters. stay mad as me and my bros slot floppies in our sick milsurp bagging peaks and doing drills scaring away noguns calicommies lmfao

So I need advice for spots to backpack and/or camp near & around Shenandoah county VA (specifically mount jackson. I am being my friends from northern VA: a fat Mexican, a West Virginian, an Eagle Scout, and me (a Eagle Scout)

> background
I am from NoVA and am in mount Jackson to work for the summer, my friends and I have already done 10 mile day hikes around here but would like to do some camping. I’m looking for new spots. The fat Mexican has all the gear but little experience. I am the pack mule ( and ironically the skinniest). I have an off-road capable f-150 (mud tires and a skid plate).

Any ideas?

Reposting my question from the campsite rate thread.
I want to get /out/ but everyone I know is to busy, or wants to do designated campsite shit. My only options are solo-camp (which I'm currently leaning towards), or finding a stranger. How do you all find someone, or do you just solo camp? If you solo camp, how do you determine a trail to take?
I'm in Northwest Oregon if that helps. I haven't solo camped before, and I haven't really camped traditionally, but my last two units in the NG and USMCR loved field drills, so I'm very familiar going weeks without comforts, in a two-one man tent.
