Pro tips for red vs silver maple:
1. The underside of a silver maple leaf is gonna be white ish
2. The petiole vs leaf length is going to be equal, if not the petiole much longer than the lead length on a silver maple
3. Take off a leaf and see if the petiole has ((nut)) in it. If it does, it’s silver

Buds and bark are pretty similar, so you have to look at other IDing features

Camping hammock recommendations? Going /out/ with some buddies and looking for something that's durable, not chineseshit, and comes with a mosquito net. Been doing research but can't tell which reviews are legit and which are shills.
25 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
serious question, how tall are you?
the vast majority of hammock campers consider eno hammocks to be way too short for camping
Yeah, they have a pile of "Thru-Hiker" Chinesium for 120 dollars. It's Chinesium but fairly cheap so if you're not totally committed to hammock camping just yet, it's probably a good place to start.
I just ordered this cheap amazon shit. When it breaks I'll get the overpriced cabellas shit.
What’s the point of the timeouts on the sides?
Worth including it I’m sewing my own hammock body?
Meant to say tie outs, not timeouts
You use them ever?
Not really ultralight since what you’re looking for will be two layered and have extra channels sewn onto the sides to add width to accommodate two people.
There are lots of cheap two person hammocks, but they are usually only 9’
You’re best bet for one with an integrated bug net however is probably to make your own

>Yes because a labor force that can be banished at any time, high unemployment to drive the gibs demographics, more spics to finish off our social benefits so in a couple decades when soc sec goes tits up they can jack up taxes and totally rape our economy while they implement more socialist policies to tank our quality of life, and dependence on foreign powers for basic needs is obviously a net benefit.
yeah the capitalists will indeed rape all countries eventually in their accumulation of capital

muh heckin science!11!!1!
yeah retard I can pull up a dozen articles about how it is linked
but mainly don't use it because it's dogshit for cooking and i dont willingly put heavy metals into my body
I can't be arsed to look for any links about this so will just speak from my experience. I find red light has little to no impact on my nigth vision compared to the white light on my head torch. I star gaze a fair bit (not in any sophiscated manner, just with my eyes and trying to learn constellations) and and do my camp chores, make hot drinks ect,with my red light on and star gaze at the same time. If I use my white light then I have to turn it off and wait for my eyes to readjust to the dark.
>m-maybe if I call him reddit other anons on this anime website will think I'm cool and forget that fact I'm making basless mom-science claims.
>I should turn on my salt lamp and use some essential oils.

it's not a meme but it's overexaggerated. red lights tend to have simply way less lumens, which is the main factor
You don't have to perform science experiments for this. It's already well-known that red light won't blind you when your eyes are already dilated and adjusted to the dark.
In heavy traffic at night, you are blasted by a gazillion red brake lights, but you're still able to see. This is intentional.

Not the semi-regular OP but still consider it my duty

Old thread kind of related thread since Nobody Goes Out Anymore

I took my ex on some kayaking trips this easter long weekend. I live on the river in an alpine part NE-VIC in Australia in a bit of a confluence where we can drop in behind my house and float ~25km downstream, or go 10-15km along different creeks up-river back home. Autumn colours but still very hot during the day

It's getting warmer for most of you now. What are you up to? What have you done or are doing? What are your plans?

I used a borah bivy as well.
It's a great set up.

I've used a tent for all my life for backpacking, but needing to waterproof it every month or so has gotten tiring. I want to try tarp camping, but I don't know which tarp to choose. What inexpensive and extremely waterproof (not needing to waterproof it at all) tarp do you recommend?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Your fault for not drying it properly
What kind of tarp traps heat better than a tent?
>but needing to waterproof it every month or so has gotten tiring
Buy a good tent ?
Price range?
Without knowing your budget it's hard to recommend anything specific. I would say though that you'd want to look for a few features:
>square shape
>multiple tie outs on each side
>centre loop
my tarp is rectangle shaped, what do?

Yeah, we don’t have moose but feral hogs are very aggressive and fuck people up pretty regularly
Some absolute retard let a bunch of russian boar loose in Michigan and they bred like rabbits. They are much larger than you would assume and have a terrible temper.
They’re mean as shit. I don’t think they actually kill a lot of people but I do know a guy into deer hunting and it took him six shots of.357 to kill one. He carries a .44 as a backup now...
I killed a deer with a .22 once. It was a hollowpoint though. Yes I shot it illegally. The statute of limitations is up on it though.

California would be great if it weren't for californians.

I’m thinking about getting into photography and documenting my adventures more than snapping off a couple phone pictures. Any photobros around?

I have a Canon EOS 4000d for two years now. I use it mostly for documenting my hiking trips and it's great. It was around 600 euros at the time, it should be cheaper now. I also bought an used Sigma 70-300mm lens. It's not so good, but it serves the purpose.
If you don't know the basics of photography I suggest you to watch Wolfgang Amri's tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwrGAoZIrOw&list=PL7W5udALs-AlIByQQ8KnleHQdKq_9m0vD they're really simple, and very few people explain the basics as good as he does
Sony a6000 (most bang for buck) + Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS (wide angle) or Sony E 35mm f/1.8 OSS (50 mm full frame equivalent). You can step up to a6400 for shooting video but for photos it's not really worth it.

The GRII is great too and reasonably priced.

Avoid full frame cameras. They weigh a ton and aside from having a bigger lens selection and a very narrow segment of specifically designed low light cameras they don't offer any advantages to APS-C mirrorless. The bulk alone will make your photographs worse.

If your phone is fairly new and flagship then you can download an app that will shoot in RAW. Editing RAW files in Adobe Lightroom will do wonders for your photos and will look better than unedited photos from a "real" camera. The "pop", contrast, and other stuff associated with appealing photos all comes from Lightroom editing. If you need your photos to be bigger for prints then you can always get an AI photo enlarger like Gigapixel AI. Low light situations are handled fairly well by modern low light modes.
Based. Now enjoy getting called a larper because you don't take pics to document everywhere you've been like all the millennials and zoomers do
Anyone got experience with the G5X? Thinking to make this my /out/ camera.

I carry a Canon M50 when I'm out hiking. It's light enough to carry comfortably and the EF-M lenses are all relatively compact and lightweight. My default lens is the 11-22mm F/4-5.6 which works really well for landscapes. The 28mm Macro lens is really fun for doing botanical stuff if you're into that kind of thing too.
