>Average microplastic shed into the environment from urban shoes per year per person is 100g.
I regularly hike local forests as part of a group that tries to keep the forest clean from trash.
We collect everything; bottles, wrappers, condoms, napkins, diapers, wet wipes etc. but then I realized we are contributing to the trash in form of microplastics from our footwear & clothes.
Any recommendations on natural fabric hike clothing for staying dry? Is anyone using leather soled shoes/boots? What are the options for leather, bamboo, tree, sugarcane soled hiking boots?

>Western Germany, standards have slipped on the whole 'keeping forest clean'
Well obviously they have, forests don't interest the brown hordes so your government has no reason to put money into them.
>Average microplastic shed into the environment from urban shoes per year per person is 100g.
>Each year my boots don't weight even 20 grams less than the past

I'm calling it bullshit, but if mother earth cannot assimilate that quantity then it deserves to die. However nature can assimilate that, cities, nuclear plants and anything we create with enough time, like the beaches of glass beads.

>Keywords in OP
Keywords in the actual study are "unknown period," "hypothesize" and "extrapolate."
>accumulation of items over an unknown period
>one could hypothesize that the collected items had accumulated during a two-week period

Study author basically asspulls it was probably two weeks. Then extrapolates per capita rates based on average daily trail usage. Extrapolations from asspull evidence is itself an asspull, so in conclusion the claims are unproven and as anon's here have pointed out, utterly fail a simple sanity check. (Actually robust scientific results would be confirmed by multiple different methods and measures)

What do you think people wore before plastic?
Leather. Even military soldiers marched with leather soles (albiet with metal parts).

Leather soles do wear out a bit fast (if you don't have the metal plates/hobs) so, as the other anon said, you can go for a natural rubber sole.
Natural rubber soles can be added to shoes with leather soles. I don't know the specifics but my cobbler seemed to mention that it can only be added to shoes that have the soles stitched to the shoe (as opposed to glued to the shoe).

To add:
for waterproofing leather, you use dubbin.

If you need a waterproof jacket, an option would be oilskin coat (cotton and wax/oil). Or an inverness coat (wool, naturally water resistant to a degree).

Can attest.
Use my shitty f150 for grabbing lumber/building supplies and hauling trash to the dump.
We paid $800 for it, it’s way too important to risk ruining it by going off road.

For going out I’d rather risk fucking up my “daily driver” which is fungible. Used, reasonably priced trucks are rarer than hens teeth. But most outings are just walking out the patio door and out into the forest (we’re adjacent to a few thousand acres of blm forest; and thank his theres no access roads.. in the dozens of hiked up there I’ve never seen a single person)

Glue is not traditionally repairable, because the glue rips the leather shoe upon being removed, so usually repairable shoes are stitched.
Boots can be stitched too. Completely leather military boots might be hard to find nowadays, but there's always cowboy boots. The British military used to wear 'desert boots', those are modernly avaliable.

>Where does one actually go to get leather boots that are repairable?
Places that sell fancy shoes often have boots as well (like desert boots). I specify fancy because that's usually the only people that sell shoes that are stitched; commoner shoes are usually glued and those aren't repairable (last I checked, a few years ago desu).

>Are leather military boots repairable by cobblers and stuff?
My local cobbler doesn't do metal on the soles anymore, since a lot of people complained that they scratch up wooden flooring. But some do still add them, they are called 'toe-taps'.
I'm not sure about military-grade metal parts like hobs and horshoe-taps and stuff. My cobbler said if I manage the source the metal parts myself, he can put them on my shoes, but he's not going to order them himself.

since i inherited my parents estates i´ve had barely no time to go /out/ because of the constant yardwork and basic maintenance besides working 8 hours
i know it is the dream of basically everyone here to own land and their own home but i was perfectly happy spending all my free time /out/side year long from my little one person apartment and living like that until now
it is a big change and you should be well prepared for it when it happens to you
sell the property and use the cash to go outside for the rest of your life
As in more than one?
look smaller, there's beauty all over
if you find yard maintenance to be a problem, kill your lawn and replace it with native prairie flowers
i spent this morning relocating dragonfly larvae and tadpoles to a nearby spring because i have to drain the pool in a few days

Why would there be an ape walking around in North America? Have you ever seen a monkey there?

If he's anywhere it's Africa where gorillas and apes are in the wild. But you would probably think it's just a hairy black guy nothing too special.

In other words: no, you're dumb.

Deep south. About 300 yards from my back yard.
great find and that's pretty interesting to me because we also had baldies nesting just like that for about 5 years on a lake down the street from me in Massachusetts. guess those fuckers find their way around
Yeah this bunch of them has been hanging around here for about that long now.
man you should get a proper camera and post occasional updates. this is of interest
Yeah unfortunately I don't have a nice one that can zoom up to the nest very well but I'll see if I can get some better pictures on what I have. That picture was from a few years ago, since then it has moved the nest to an adjacent pine tree that is actually slightly closer to the house and easier to get pics of I can almost see it from the yard.

It was flying low over the house just last night at sunset. About two years ago there were two mature and two adolescents sort of in a group but this year I've only seen the one.

In field and stream they warn e@&t0!ds that if they take a once in a lifetime destination hunt to the west to be careful- a distance you think is one mile away is 5 miles. The sheer scale difference of the west can't be appreciated until you have walked it. Even PAs silly little corn fields down in lancaster area look like a miniature nebraska where the hills roll in 1/8th a mile rather than 1 and a corn field is 4 acres instead of 40. The farm houses are all like 1/4th mile from each other it's crazy

I'd do the ol' genre switcheroo to save my skin. Just as James Kirk responded to the Gorn in Star Trek, I'd quickly scavenge elemental sulfur, charcoal, combining it to create a primitive gunpowder. Then using a hollow log and a rock as a barrel and projectile, I'd dispatch the creature, then cheekily lament that I'd trade all of the woodland riches for a simple hand phaser. After the slasher breathed his last, I'd turn to the 4th wall and imply with a wordy dialogue that society is really to blame not this poor... poor wretch. Alternatively, I'd try to genre-switch into a romcom by carving some "deeply meaningful" wood sculpture and lament about my wife who passed on suddenly, leaving me to raise my daughter alone as a hot single dad with great abs who just wants a commitment. Queue the quirky terminally single wine aunt coming bumbling out of the woods, recently arrived from her tourist visit to the Italian coast.

You really are a sub 100 iq shitskin to I guess and cannot comprehend English. I literally wrote out the detailed answer to your exact question. Also the weather station for Fort Davis is at 4900 ft and 30N, Denver which you seem to think constitutes a "montane" environment is actually in the high plains, and only at 5200 ft and is just below 40N. The weather station on McDonald observatory is at 6800 ft and you can check yourself the *annual average high* for McDonald observatory at 6800 ft is *higher* than Denver at 5200 ft and 40N despite Denver having a 5F higher max avg *monthly* temp for the exact reasons I already explained in detail in plain English. And again Denver is not the standard for forested montane environments, it is literally the queen city of the plains.

>Why do you live in Arizona if you need your society to be completely white?
White society is a right society, non-whites do not make societies or civilization. Texas, california, and New Mexico are in the 30% non-hispanic white range, Arizona is the whitest border state by miles at 52.9% non-hispanic white and the transition zone region of Arizona is approximately 85-90% non-hispanic white with at least 500k inhabitants.

Lmk when your Arizonan white civilization of Californians can build something more beautiful and enduring than what the non-whites built there. also you’re confusing two separate posters for the same person, also going to echo the other guy in saying that you have terrible reading comprehension and are probably an esl 2nd gen Latino that thinks he’s white and has a chip on his shoulder about it. And lastly you still haven’t proven that West Texas is inferior or that Texas is flat so try again.

I've been playing around with the thought of going homeless to save on rent for a couple of months now at this point.
If I continue to pay rent I will not build any significant wealth, currently im living hand to mouth without any significant savings.
I already figured the following things out AND did field trials to test them out:
> minimum equipment/clothes required on me
> places to wash clothes/shower
> ways to eat cheaply without cooking
> self storage solutions
> stealth sleeping locations
> what to do during daytime
It all basically boils down on where and how to spend your nights, and that's where I need advice:
> I am not allowed a tent in my cucked country, I am allowed to sleep outside without a tent tho
> I need to sleep away from people since this decreases the chance of getting mugged at night
I already slept a few nights this way and it worked decently, the only issues were:
> you cool down a lot at night without a tent even during summer
> staying undercover with tons of sleeping equipment

The solution is to make more money. Get your homeless solution with a van down pat then start applying for jobs you only almost qualify for, sometimes its bs and they train you in.
>The solution is to make more money
The paths to personal freedom are to drop out of the bottom of the system or to buy your way out of the top of the system. Most of the middle ground is drudgery and compromise.
