They're generally referred to as rod guides or eyelets, not rings. You'll need to replace both of them. You're probably using braid, and braid wears grooves in cheap rod guide inserts.

Gotcha, I was thinking they should function the same, but I'll go get some circle hooks. Thank you
>Gotcha, I was thinking they should function the same, but I'll go get some circle hooks. Thank you
God no, there are probably thousands of different hook configuration and size combinations, and most do exist for good reason.

I had a an experience similar to, yet almost opposite the opposite of, yours: I was out at night at a lake seeing if I could catch catfish off a dock, was using big circle hooks and slivers of hot dogs. I ended up catching smallmouth after smallmouth, and I mean almost every cast would bring in a smallmouth.

I stopped after the sixth (in like ten minutes) because the sixth was the second fish that had swallowed or otherwise been injured by the big circle hooks, and I didn't want to continue with it.

You do have a pawpaw patch to pick from, don't you anon? If not, you're missing out.
20 replies and 8 images omitted. Click here to view.
I just bought some land and have two decent pawpaw groves but no fruit. As far as I can tell the only reason they wouldn't have fruit is that they weren't pollinated?

I'm getting some offsite pawpaws and will plant near each grove with the hope of getting some nice fruit in the future
Pawpaws are supposedly not self-fertile, so one plant (i.e. patch) will not pollinate itself. If the patches are far apart the pollinators might not be making it between the two. I believe you can hand-pollinate with a paintbrush, and some people say hanging some meat in the trees to rot can attract pollinators. It could also be that they're not old enough to set fruit. It can take 6 or 7 years. Of course if you're trees are 30 feet high then they're probably mature enough.

5/5 breddy gud. Congrats on finding them.

You could check farmers markets or see if your state has a pawpaw festival.
the pawpaws i found are sort of bitter, I was reading you could partially freeze them and that helps? anyone know anything abouvtkkp2t that

Nice anon. There are a few spots around me but they are a fair distance and sometimes get eaten by deer or other foragers so that's why I have my own tree in my yard and have a dozen or so seedlings ready for planting next year.

As for sumac, depending where you are it's probably a little late in the season. The good stuff that gives it's nice sour flavour is water soluble which is why sumac lemonade is an easy thing to make. But it also means that once the sumac flowers are ripe, every time it rains some of that tastiness gets washed away. Pick it early next year for peak deliciousness.

In my experience, if they’re bitter, they’re too ripe. We’re they spotted or turning purple at all?

Harvested a little over 3lbs of chestnuts yesterday, and the tree is still completely full.

I'm so fucking lonely and lack a lot of hiking knowledge to go explore into the woods by myself. Would it be a good idea to look for hiking groups online and set up meet ups so I can meet hiking partners in the hopes that I'll gain enough knowledge through them to be able to venture into the woods by myself? I don't know what else to do, winter is almost here and I haven't hiked at all, my plan was to get used to hiking this summer and start taking mountaineering courses in the winter, and tackle a couple peaks before next summer, but at this rate I'm stuck. How safe would it be to do it? Will I just get raped and murdered by some stranger in the woods?

Is it better to buy the cheaper stuff that way you're not worried about getting it scuffed or dirty? What do you guys wear, shirts, jackets, hats, pants, boots, shoes, and where do you hike?

stop listening to tactical fags they're never over 20yo.
all boots have shockingly bad puncture resistance. foam sole ones, leather sole ones, all of them. the highest i have seen tested only survive around 220lbs from a standard deck nail. if you hike places where punctures are a worry trailrunners are the best, as a lot of models have carbon plates with over 20x the penetrative resistance a boot sole would have. the whole rest of the shoe is less protective though. so its a trade off.

How do you fix a blow-up sleeping pad? Is duct tape enough?
I'm worried it'll break on my 2 week trip since it's quite a cheap one (pic related).
7 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Deflating and packing up your pad will eventually create micro holes to the airproof film inside the pad. This is more likely scanario than actually sleeping over a sharp object that goes through your tent floor and pad.
depends on the material. if it's pvc, you can get patch kits easily.
what i triet to say is, be sure to get the right patch for whatever material your thing is.
Maybe If you use the special things instead of the duct tape your repairs will last longer than 2 weeks.
My patches with tear aid are now years old, and are as good as the first day.
i successfully fixed this random girls queen size air mattress at a music festival with a piece of gorilla tape and a lighter. warm up the tape, stick it over the hole, inflate, then stick it in her hole. it held up

SAK replacement edition, pic related.
Need some recommendations folks, $100 tops. Trying to decide if I stick with a SAK, move to a folder or perhaps even a small fixed blade.
166 replies and 42 images omitted. Click here to view.
I'm not clicking that shitty dutch clickbait, but that looks like a stock Lauri blade, 80crv2 if it's the carbon steel model and they run about $10-15 just for the blank. They're used on just about every factory puukko like your Ahti and Woodsknife and are good blades.
Well if that small choil is so important, you could add one in to a knife with a round file.
technically yeah if it doesn't make the knife less useful e.g. sacrificing blade length
this is very true. mora's carbon steel rusts within a few minutes just from the air here in washington if you go near the sound or coast.
we're a state cars don't rust in too. i reckon just looking at a carbon steel blade funny somewhere in the rust belt where the air itself penetrates rust protection and rots cars stored inside of car garages its even worse lol.
there's some disadvantages. clip point tips break the easiest and the thrust isn't always in line with the blade depending on the design. still, clip point's good enough for a lot of militaries and its one of the better points for thrusting.

That is most likely Lactarius Helvus. Its smell is described as being similar to that of maple syrup and/or caramel. However, I wouldn't say that's what it is for sure.

Interesting perspective.
Let me ask you this.
Have you ever gone a decade without being able to find a consensual sex partner that did not require cash payment ?
If not a decade, what is the longest youve gone trying to get laid but failing?
Then there's the potentially severe consequences of hitting on a straight male who's also homophobic
you trannies can't stay out of these threads
My guy, I'm here laughing at the faggots, how the fuck am I the tranny?
Sure gays can find partners if they have absolutely no standards. For guys like me it's more difficult. You have to sift through a bunch of undesirables constantly pestering you and even threatening you. Grindr is a shitshow (I deleted the app years ago) and trying to distinguish between gay and straight males IRL can be exhausting. Pursuing a straight, homophobic male can have severe consequences, even in 2022. Straight males don't have to deal with any of that. Rejection stings but it's not the worst outcome desu

If you were going to live OTG in America, and I mean truly OTG with your own custom-built house, your own water source, your own food, everything you might need out in the middle of nowhere, where would you go?
It seems like the eastern seaboard is off limits to OTGers. Everything there is already owned by someone. If there was going to be a place that could truly be called "wilderness" nowadays it would be somewhere out in the west, probably in the Rockies or the desert.
What do you guys think? Where would you go, what would you do? Are there any existing communities like this that aren't psycho new age cults?
i'd go to narnia, because it's just as realistic as the criteria you're setting out.

i'd hang out and get shitfaced with the satyrs. they seem to know how to party.
As close as you can get to the center of the Olympic peninsula. It rains about 9 months out of the year on a daily basis. There's flowing water everywhere. You can just plant shit, do nothing, and it'll grow. All the wildlife hangs out there because they have no need to go to the coast towards the 101.
#1 is unpolluted & easily accessible water, so a stream or groundwater for a well

everything else is easy. water is heavy and needed daily, so you want it within short walking distance of your property.
