does anyone actually use magnesium fire starter or even larp as a cave man to make a camp fire ?
personally because I'm a smoker, I always carry a lighter and never bothered to use any of those thing

I use it almost every time I start a fire, it's just fun. I cheat and use char cloth tho. Want to get better at friction fire, I used to have it down pretty well but fell out of practice and discovered recently I can't do it anymore.

Larp-tier. They’re fun but let’s not pretend they have any advantage to a $0.50 bic lighter.

If you got a multitool keychain it's pretty good because you brought it to have a knife sharpener yet you forgot your lighter.

I use it for starting cooking stoves for the most part. Gas, whitesprites, etc? I have used it to start a few fires but a lighter is easier by far.

i bought one after failing to use a bic lighter, storm lighter (it decided to fall apart) and safety matches in wind and rain. nothing dumb about bringing a small tin of tinder materials as well
so now i carry a bic lighter, safety matches and a ferro rod w/ striker

Went walking in an old quarry today which at one time had a convent adjacent to it.
It was pretty cool, I spent hours beating my way through 8 foot high walls of dense thicket and then found myself in really old garden that had gone wild.
Lots of old stone walls and arches made of trees just hidden in the middle of this wild wood that probably hadn't been visited in years.

Anyway, it appears the nuns had a small bit of an orchard with lots of apple trees but I also found a single pear tree and got about 5kgs (around 11 lbs) of little pears.
Anyone have any recommendations of what to do with them?

Planning on skiing Baker with some friends next Spring. We all have only have light backcountry ski experience (all of us less than 10 trips) and most of us have little mountaineering experience, though we all have taken a course on glacier travel and rescue.

What should we do to best prepare ourselves for the big boy and what route would be best?
>>
>>1890013
If you're not super experienced just do the standard route, Coleman-Deming off the Heliotrope Ridge trailhead. If you're going in spring then you won't have to worry much about crevasses. The roman wall has pretty steep turns but most of the Coleman-deming route is pretty mellow

How do you stop snek bite? Are leather boots enough?

Depends on the snake and the size. But boots + gators will usually work.

No step on is the surest way not to, though.

>Easier to spot
I don’t know where you live Anon, but in my part of the country they blend in flawlessly with leaf litter.
>easy to catch
They’re one of the most passive snakes out there, because they’re an ambush predator that relies on their camouflage to strike and to avoid other predators. I’ve stepped on two (2) in the last few years. It scared the shit out of both of us but both times they just slithered off.

I read that hunting is usually patrilineal, meaning its passed from grandfather to father, father to son. I'm 36 and I want to start hunting, and I've always loved the idea of trying to hunt for subsistence and to help my son develop more of a love of nature. The problem is my grandpa stopped hunting before I was born, he had 3 daughters, no son's, and of course I grew up without a dad, then eventually a stepfather who also stopped hunting long before I was around. Now I have a son of my own and I want to be the type of father I wanted when I was a kid, but I don't know how to get started in any meaningful way, especially when I work so much.

I have mentioned squirrel hunting as an easy in to get started, but I don't know how to work that into eventually getting a deer down the road, or learning how to field dress properly instead of watching cut together videos on youtube.

I just want to be in nature more, be more self reliant, and teach my son a way of life that I never got to experience, but I'm clueless as to where I should start.

Just gotta get in the woods and see if you would like it. You're gonna suck ass at it until you catch up on the generations of info lost. Get out there, learn how animals move, and just relax. Start with a couple camping trips into the area you want to hunt so you can become fimiliar with the area. (For navigation and safety reasons) Hunting for food is extremely fufilling

Get the proper licensing and figure out how to map out public and private land. Use openstreetmap and maps.me to figure out where the hell you are. Shoot in the range and shoot in the bush too. Get out and camp. Scout areas and take it slow. A large chunk of the money comes from using gas. It's doubtful you'll ever find anyone to ever help you. Whatever you do, do it safe and as legal as you possibly can. You will make blunders.

If you are hunting deer just go to a spot and set up a blind/tree stand. Wait forever and they will eventually stroll by.

I wanted to know if there are rangers around here, because as an autistic person I think it's a good profession for me, because right now I'm a neet and I left college because I think it's too much for me and I was pretty stressed out. In my country you only need a driver's license and to have passed the secondary education, things that I already have, so I have to study for the competitions and I would like to know how is life being one, there is hardly any information about it, it seems that it is a little known profession here.

Bruh it isn't. I'm this guy >>1889718 and couldn't believe it when I interviewed for a position. Like its easier/quicker to become a cop because they actually pay you in academy and you start full time.

Literally the only way that seemed feasible to me was to target it straight out of high-school into college. Dude said that sometimes guy get fire qualified to stay employed in the off season till they get full time employment, but I could expect 2-3 years as a temp with anywhere from 3-6 months laid off a year. Also, if you're NPS instead of NFS your wait may be even longer if you're set on a popular park that everyone wants to work like Zion or Grand Canyon etc. Its totally non-viable and antiquated desu, and I have no idea why its like this. If they don't need people dont hire, and if you do need them hire fewer of the most qualified and start them full time. I dont get it.
>>
>>1889440
this is one of the few cases where its actually the other way round; the park service and park rangers came out of army originally. hence the campaign hats.
but the recent decade or two has seen more militarization of the LE side following police trends.

If you ever had the displeasure of using the old school raincoats that are 100% water AND airtight you would not say that. Goretex is shit, but is by far the best shit out there. I hate using it so only take it out if there is heavy rain. Else I use a wool jumper which keeps a pretty good job of repelling light rain. And for pants I use waxed cotton canvas. That's a god tier combo, as it is breathable and water repellent and it is silent and comfortable. But you will be soaking wet in heavy rain and that's when goretex rocks
>>
>>1889605
gore-tex is not durable, its not very abrasion resistant and in short time it will wear out if you are living an out life and not just being a weekend camper
>>
>>1889696
goretex is never the outer layer. It is sandwithched between an inner and outer layer to protect it. The outer layer can be as strong and durable or light and not durable as you want
