Don't be mad that you're too poor for one :P
Man.. That backpack looks like A POS lmao!
Don’t be insensitive, it means he’s AIDS positive.
I just picked up the Blaze 60 and in a couple of shakedown hikes loaded up it's looking like a winner. I could do without the zipper but on the other hand that may be handy to quick access stuff once at camp. Side and hip belt pouches are huge. Only knock against it is that since the straps are held into the pack by tension it does make a 'click' noise occasionally if the bag shifts a lot when the buckle temporarily lifts off the framesheet. So far very happy, have a 30mi loop to do in two weeks that will be a good test. The GG Crown is inarguably lighter but I occasionally go ham on stupid gear so I wanted something that could handle occasional overstuff.

The Dagger looks like a good day pack (or fast overnighter) but I would consider design intent. My daily backpack is overbuilt because I can have laptop, tools, etc. in there. However this looks comparable to a HPG Tarahumara or ULA Photon so if that fits what you want it's a good option.
I have a first gen RUSH24 and it's been a good flying/truck bag so far, but i feel like i could use it's space more efficiently.

Is there a guide to packing/stowing in bags to increase their usability?

I grew up around Carolinian forest. Later I moved north. I thought the same way at first. It took me some time to properly appreciate the conifers.
The Boreal forest is the last great forest in the world.

What to do about people stealing the food you're growing, and how to handle those situations.

This is obviously an issue for more urban gardeners, but I'm sure rural folks have issues too. Especially given our current outlook of food shortages.

Shoot them.
I don't live around brown people so I've never had this problem
Shoot them. Alternatively you can beat them with a 2x4 while you wait on the cops to show up and arrest them. If niggers need to steal food to eat they can go steal from the multi-billion dollar a year profit supermarket down the street.

What does it actually take to learn to survive in the wilderness indefinitely? I'm a city retard who never leaves their apartment so I wouldn't even know where to begin.
52 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Start with camping - learn to set up a tent, start a fire, cook something simple over one weekend. Then move up to a week - that will bring in new challenges. Then learn foraging, fishing, hunting, trapping, building shelters. Then do all these, but in the winter, which is a whole different issue entirely. As you do these things you'll learn more and more and understand what you are capable of and if you keep at it, in a couple of years you will know exactly when you're actually capable of actually surviving long term. It's possible, but the road is long and you have to really commit, otherwise you either quit or become another missing hiker who thought he can cut it in the forest with a tarp and a swiss army knife.
Then, after doing just a few of these things, realize what real problems are. Realize how cushy your life is. Realize that being afraid of talking to women or getting a job or whatever it is you're running from isn't near as hard as what you thought "the easy life" was.
Surviving in the wilderness "indefinitely" is called homesteading anon. Requires farming skill, animal husbandry, carpentry, bit of engineering know-how and a wide skillbase of things we just don't really do in the modern era anymore.
Self sufficiency is what people a couple hundred years ago did when they packed up everything they had into a couple of Conestogas and plopped somewhere where the dirt was black and the rain was regular and built a home.
Having a community though is ultimately the end goal.
It means you know how to hunt. Only a couple kills can keep a man alive all year.

I will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro this summer in about 2 months. any anons here have advice, gear recommendations, etc. based on either experiences hiking Kili or similar mountain hikes?

You don't have to tip the guides as much as you think you do. The Americans there always tip huge amounts. Giving them your pocket change is already generous.
tipping is stupid, if they want extra money just add it to the price of the trip
This confuses the American
Watch out for negroes.
It’s a walk up, don’t worry too much about it. Basic hiking precautions.

I've recently gotten a bonsai (Dwarf Japanese Garden Juniper) and want to keep alive as long as possible. Two problems with that: I live in a desert, and I've only ever taken care of succulents. Where do I start?

I've found a spot for it that gets a LOT of very indirect light but is out of the sun; it's shaded by a slat roof and sits in a corner just out of reach of direct sunlight, so I think I should be fine on that front.

So far, I've figured out that I need a soil mixture that will retain water but not be soggy, and to err more on the side of clay soil than sandy soil. Is this correct? Will coco coir be a decent additive to keep water in there and prevent it from drying out? I have some akadama which I was planning to mix with some gravel and clay soil from my yard (since, well, desert - plenty of clay soil here)

>inb4 google it
I don't want to find yet another decade-old forum full of elitists shitposting about how it's not a Real Bonsai if you don't use 100% materials exclusively from Japan

Semi related to OP but I have this long leaf pine I’m trying to grow indoors. I figure the taproot is pretty long so I got it a 3 ft deep pot. It’s in my 1 bed room apt rn and I just dumped some fertilizer and garden soil at the bottom and filled the rest with sand. I put more sand and decayed matter at the top. I don’t know if it’ll stay alive but I pulled it from a fresh fire line so I figure it’s fucked either way
pines are very sensitive. it will probably die. you are better off finding a very tiny one and transplanting it into a pot without disturbing the roots at all. don't keep it indoors. keep it outside in the sun.
It will die without winter cold.
>long leaf pine in a pot
I have a long leaf. It's about 80 feet tall and 4 feet in diameter.
I had a bonsai that I got from IKEA like 8 years ago. Took great care of it. Left for work out of town for a month and asked my girlfriend to just give it a spritz of water and set by the window once a week. Came back to this withered black thing because she “forgot” about it despite it being on the kitchen table where she sets her purse. I hate women. It was like losing a child.

Hello. I´ve got a week long camping trip to Czechia coming up in july so im looking over my things again to prepare for it. My last tent broke and so i thought i´d buy a hammock and a tarp to go along with it instead cause it seems way cheaper than buying an actually ok tier tent.

I´ve never used a hammock for camping, so are they good? Are they better in comparison to tents. Seems like being off the ground solves the possibility of the ground soaking your floor and also it's much colder to sleep on the ground.

Can you have sex in a camping hammock
>this is a serious question, I'm going camping with a girl and i've never had sex or camped in a hammock before and am not sure if the hammock would promote cuddling or just be weird, maybe I should get a tent

that turd would have torn their asshole apart like tissue paper. jesus.
i have friends that have made literal babies in hammocks
unless you have a 3 man tent you can't really hang out with other people in your tent anyway, it's just too small, tarp at least you can all sit under, can even have a fire when it's raining too
>sex in a hammock?
Supposedly the Mayans formalized the possibilities, giving names and descriptions of the various acts and positions. Don’t plan on sleeping two people in one hammock. It’s fun to hang out, but as soon as you crawl into a hammock with someone else you’re instantly pressed up against them. It’s pretty tough to sleep all night like that. Thinking about it, it would make progression from kissing to fucking kind of difficult because there’s so little room to move around.

When I was running my MeetUp group we did about 20 group trips a year and there were a few times when people who brought tents ended up hanging out under my tarp because it was raining. More than three people gets super crammed though.

Moab 2's when conditions have been dry for comfort. 22km hike fresh out of the box and not a single hotspot.

Columbia for when there's rain and a lot of mud. Water tight as a fishes asshole.
I need new shoes for the summer, want a low shoe that's as breathable as possible but also ideally with a stiff sole with good traction. Any recommendations?
I got a pair of Vans MTE because on paper they sounded great for light hiking, but they are too narrow for my foot so they're not really good for anything more than 2-3km in the city.
I was disappointed with the last pair of Bates I bought, the sole has worn off after just under a year, bought a pair of Lowas this time as I can get them resoled and my lowa rangers have lasted me 5 years before a resole.

There are 250,000 lakes in Ontario.
4000 over 3 square km
15 over 400 square km

I grew up around the Greats, so to me a lake is "freshwater I can't see across." However there are hundreds of lakes well worth seeing, not to mention the rivers!
