I'm becoming an apprentice to a beekeeper in the next few weeks. Anyone here have experience? Any tips?
260 replies and 35 images omitted. Click here to view.
Not a beekeeper but like bees. Last thing I read was on beekeeping being wrong, morally, philosophically and scientifically. Although there is still a way to have bees.
TLDR: The view that intensive farming is harming bees, spreading/encouraging disease, making bee population/environment weaker. They prefer to house wild swarms, be non invasive and take only excess from hives.
Seems like it. Burn the frame.

An unnecessary gimmick made the inventor rich. That's about it. Extracting honey is a minuscule part of the job and to be quite honest that's the fun part. Flowhive™ is just a toy for the noob. On the other hand something like pic related is quite hand when shaking bees off the frame especially when you're dealing with tens of hives in a day.
Hey beebros, what's the best go-to bee hive to get? I'm new and want to get into beekeeping and trying to compile an equipment list. I really don't want to get memed into some dorky starter bee hive that locks me out of some theoretical "higher tier" beekeeping later on when I've cut my teeth. I've had that happen before in other hobbies and I'd rather just learn every right from the get go instead of getting some forced training wheels thing. I wanna take care of my beebros as best as possible

What kind of pants do you use while /out/? What materials? What kind of belt? I've never worn anything other than light cargo pants (nylon/polyester) because I've never given a shit about pants while out, but decided I should try to invest in something decent for once.

Man, the blackberry canes and other thorns here are like razor wire. They’ll draw blood even through jeans while bushwhacking.
is that whacking off in the bush?
Going hiking in places like this (but you knew that)
yes, going offroad is fun, have to get decent pants for the thorns and to slide my ass down rocks when it's too steep, but not sure what, people seethe about Fjallraven prices, and then recommend a competitor that costs exactly the same, i fucking hate youtube channels
It’s finally cool enough to take the mutt hiking, and we’re contending with a summers worth of blackberry growth. Got ripped to shreds yesterday.

Still worth it though. Rainy forest hikes are the best.

What a stupid fucking question. Normally walk up them since the only other options are climbing or falling to death.

Just wear trail runners bro

Don’t worry babe, I’ll rub your feet with lotion when we get back.
Extremities get the coldest of anything else on your body.

Also the shoes and socks soak up a certain amount of perspiration no matter what you do so they end up getting colder than everywhere else. Best way to deal with it is have two pair of dry socks and a pair of dry warm shoes (some people buy baffins I guess) for night time.
Hobo insulation

Rain gear/ cover (or plastic bags over your shoes with even some scrunched up newspaper can provide a considerable insulating barrier. Obviously the best thing is get a proper sleeping system
Emergency foil blanket/bag too
When I'm just passing through a bog without trail I'll look for the easiest route and then Hanwag Alaska or Meindl Island is more than good enough to keep me dry. I never get serious problems with those in bogs in Lappland.
If the bog is deep or I have to do something other than hiking I just use Lundhags boots. They are drain manually and you can make 30 to 40k a day in those.
And late into the season like it is now after a few snows you just don't want to use trail runners anymore.

Any floridanons know if they would be around this time of year? According to google they should be visible year round, even though I know manatee season there doesn't peak until the winter drives them inland. Would I be able to see some at this time of year?
Don't try to have sex with the manatees. It's actually illegal.
I don’t know about Crystal River but if you want to be sure to see them consider the TECO Manatee Viewing Center in Apollo Beach during the winter months. The manatees are attracted to the warm water discharged from the power plant. TECO has built some nice viewing platforms to get an elevated view.

I’ve also seen a lot of them at Manatee Springs State Park in late November. It was near the time of their migration season where they were moving in search of warmer water. This would be more of a crap shoot though. Over four days we only saw them on one.
I've been at sea for 400 days and the cabin boy's asshole prolapsed at day 173, you can't keep me from sticking my dick in it.
This is a pretty cool spot, you will also lilely see sharks amongst the Manatees.

In Crystal River I've seen a hundred all at once huddled together in the lagoon. Very neat sight but this was in February. OP I think you should wait if possible or go to the Power Plant if you are only in Florida right now

Zoomer here, how do I walk? im not sure I ever really learned how to do it. I am 19 years old
I can barely really walk for any extended amount of time without stumbling all the time or my knees and ankles wobbling around in their sockets. I'm prone to falling over.
its never been a big issue in my life but i've been trying to go /out/ more and im really struggling. I trip and fall over everything. Its hard to even look where I am going, the sun blinds me and its disorienting. I have disassociate disorder too which makes it hard to focus on the world
has anyone had similar issues? any advice?

Indefinitely? See a doctor if walking breaks your body, it's literally the lowest form of physical stress you can do
I've seen infants walking
Wear sunglasses to shade your eyes and so you can feel like people aren't watching where you look. Wear a hat to keep your hair out of your eyes. Keep maps open on your phone and check occasionally, so you can look away from people but also so you can know where you're going. Try jogging, it might be easier for you than walking.
This post didn't require a bump.
it doesn't. just walking in them will fix most common issues like pronation and ankles that are prone to rolling. you also get greater sense of what your feet are doing so you're quicker to correct an ankle roll when it happens.

for longer, deeper trips they do make barefoot shoes with ankle support if you're concerned.

Hello. I live in Alaska and am looking for some info on the temperature rating of boots based on their grams insulation per square meter.

Typically I only hike in uninsulated Keens in summer, which feel fine down to ~+20F with a thick sock. I wear Steger Mukluks in the winter from -50F to 0F.

I'm getting more into hiking in the colder weather and want something I can backpack in from ~-10F to ~+20F.
Could someone please suggest how much insulation I'd need? Is 400g/m^2 enough for this?

I work in Eastern Oregon. Which part were you in fren?
>first cold night
No, about a week or two it was colder.
You can buy a wool liner and just use that such as from steger mukluks.
You can always use rocks heated from the fire and put them at the foot of your sleeping back if its material can handle the heat. Just don't put wet rocks in campfire. You may have to wake up a few times and switch them out.
Or I could go outside for free because the boots I’ve had for 4 years are great.
I've heard that primitive people would rest on their shins on frozen ground

>You only need serious insulation if you stand still a lot, not when hiking

Agreed. I just got a pair of chaco ramble puffs for putting on when im not hiking. theyre light and the insulation seems great. good camp slipper. Also have an insulated boot for low stress activities but know nothing about em.

i have decent boots at home, i dont want to buy a second pair

im thinking i should just take shoes off and wrap them in wool

trying to find a minimalistic sleeping bag that covers the face so insects don't get on you, but Amazon has shit reviews for them. Anyone got a suggestion?

The difficulty here is that it’s an objectively bad shelter. It has very little ventilation, no vestibule, no head room, is comparatively heavy, and uses sixteen (16!) stakes. MSRP is $300. It has very few pros and lots of cons, but has been around for years.
you can't have an enclosed tent-material structure and not keep it aloft, it doesnt insulate for shit and condensation will fuck you. its already well down the retarded choice path.
Bivys are intended for high altitude environments, where relative humidity is lower and condensation isn’t much of an issue.
the humidity comes from you, anon. it's even more pronounced if you're in a plastic bubble that's freezing on the outside.

I'm unable to explain, without delving into the supernatural, how such a large species could have avoided leaving intact remains. Even if there were very very few of them. Even if they hid their dead etc. I just don't see how you'd go for so long having never found skeletal remains etc. It's not like they are easily mistaken for a primate in some part of the world that has primates.
>I have to get vaccinated to protect you from a virus you've been vaccinated against.
It's not a vaccine.

60 new billionaires in the pharmaceutical industry were created with your tax money.
>that 60 number was reported by Fox News AND Stephen Colbert.
It's interesting that Colbert pushed the Vax for years but still decided to mention the 60 new billionaires....
I basically agree with you. The worst part of it is that you literally cannot sue pharma for undisclosed "vaccine" side effects kek. I mean why would the public be confident in a treatment for which the manufacturer has ZERO liability for.

Liability is necessary for accountability. Without accountability, you'd have to be literally fucking retarded to EXPECT people to be confident in a product.

ok, but there are "hills" and much of the northern part of it is public land and not farms
It's underrated because faggots like >>2649163 skip over it. Lots of public land and it's relatively uncrowded for the northeast (as long as you avoid normie hellholes like Ricketts Glen and Mount Minsi). Tons of long backpacking trails if that's your thing.
ricketts glen is fine if you get there on a weekday early I would imagine - tons of cool stuff to the immediate west of it
>Tons of long backpacking trails if that's your thing.
yes this, PA has just fucking miles and miles of random trails in every direction
No. There's no real wilferness here where you can be dozens of miles from a paved road in any direction.

I feel bad for you.
theres something comfy to me about the stunted trees you get in med climates.
the nature is amazing because the vegetation is solid, and by that i mean that almost all vegetation has wood like stem
there's no real grass on the ground, all the vegetation scratches your skin when walking through it, and it has such a variety of colors and scents..

I've been been condemned as the "lush deciduous" troll on multiple occasions and I have very little problem with the Mediterranean. Good diversity, attractive topography, interesting varied plant species. A little dry for my tastes and it can be somewhat rocky and sparse in places but generally speaking Mediterranean Europe is a very interesting landscape and the biggest problem with it is the level of development imho.

No it wasn't
It was data collecting companies
Happened to alot of boards after covid as the biggest boards got flooded with a bunch of faggot spammers and bots, so everyone worth their salt receded into hobby boards to wait out the storm. The storm never ended though and eventually the faggots followed everyone to the hobby boards and started really shitting them up as well. Now just about every board has taken at least some degree of a dip in quality. /k/ used to be alright then the whole conflict on the other side of the world happened and literal federal agents and shills flooded it and made it unusable and stupid, a shame

Definitely not. People here are exceptionally mean and obtuse for how small the board is. No discussion goes un-derailed.
Wish I was like you
It's because these days the outdoors need to be gatekept to keep normies out. The mountain west is fucking full and ever since the scamdemic wilderness areas are more crowded than ever. I can't post specifics about what and where my /out/ activities are out of fear of being screenshot, posted on leddit and then chinktok/instagram.

Therefore the only discussion that can be had in earnest on here is gear whoring consumerism.
