You know someone is a LARPer when they shit on east coast mountains because west coast ones are taller but don’t realize that all that matters in the prominence of a mountain. Hiking a 14,000 footer but starting at 11,000 feet is no different than hiking a 4,000 footer and starting at 1,000 feet.

I'm from Brazil and I'm moving to a place that looks like Pic related. Very small town so little to no pollution.

I never fished in my life. I want to catch fish/seafood. Where the fuck do I start?
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Where theres water theres fish, mate.
Certain sharks hunt mainly in the breakers
interesting. i always thought you go to the coast for crustaceans and bait tier fish. can you catch a shark with a pole?
Put some squid or shrimp in a hook with like 2 or 3 oz of lead and cast out. It's gonna be some trial and error if you don't like talking to people, but maybe you could find books on it at the local library.
I fish on the coast quite a bit in England, you can catch all sorts of fish from bass and cod to rays and plaice. There isn't that much skill involved really, just cast and hope.

How do I prevent my feet from freezing? My boots get covered in snow and ice, after a day they turn into icicles. Then when I wear them my toes feel like they're going to freeze off.

Awful take. Chilblains appear whether you are a man or not.
Having wool socks with a sock liner underneath helps. Make sure your boots and socks are dry whenever you put them on.
dont lace up your boots to tight, and get good quality cold weather socks. or just get muckboats artic pro
toughen them up quickly in a controlled environment, like this

If you're already wearing good socks, (or wool socks and sock liners/silk socks under the wool ones), are your boots too tight? If you don't have some space in there, you won't get the benefit of the wool insulation and you'll cut off your circulation, which will further fuck up your ability to stay warm. If your feet feel tight, consider going up a size.
I don't think you know what that word means. Also, men have better circulation to the extremities than woman. I hear the ladies bitching about cold feet in almost every outdoor winter activity. I can't remember the last time I heard a dude whimpering about cold feet.

I want to go /out/ next week with a friend from saturday to sunday and hike in pic related.
As it's fucking cold here, I need to prepare well.
German cuck laws forbid me to put up a tent or to make a fireplace, so we would have to get warm clothes for the sleeping bag with a lot of layers (if that's enough) and sleep outside and maybe use a gas burner for food.
How would you prepare /out/?
Not staying over the night is not an option as the bus only arrives once a day.

There's actually plenty of places on campgrounds and even regular parks, but of course those have actual fireplaces. Such fireplaces also sometimes exist at Schutzhütten (shelters) along hiking trails, there's absolutely no problem making fires there. But just randomly starting fires somewhere in the forest might get you into trouble.
Pic related, it's the fireplace of a shelter (a separate hut), this one even had two, the right one with a metal grill that could be lowered onto the fire for comfortable cooking/grilling.
It's not the total wilderness experience, but then again, this is Germany, you're pretty much within shouting distance of other people anywhere in the country.
Ich empfehle dir zum schlafen ein Jägerbett zu bauen. Einfach ein paar Tannenbaum-/Kieferäste abhacken, den Boden damit abdecken und dein Schlafplatz darauf aufbauen. Isoliert zusätzlich gegen den kalten Untergrund und polstert.
Fick the laws. Never got fined in NRW even when getting woken up by a Förster
They are mostly just interested in what you are doing.
If you don’t want to break the law, gas cooker and biwaksack. That is completely legal. And sleep late, get up early, leave no trace, at least 50m away from path. And do not identify yourself. Never say that you have a Personalausweis with you even if you carry one.
you're gonna die, might as well not bother.

Yes, stealing is stealing. You could always try asking.
>Potatoes would be a shitshow to steal.
How so? You just need a small trowel and something to put them in.
How do you stop the screams from alerting people though?
what screams lol. when there was a kolchoz around here it was common place to go and digg yourself potatoes for dinner. everyone worked there so no one would stop you. Today people dont do it because they are rich enough not to bother
>Moral choices are not dependent on the other party.
This, 100%.
A lot of retards nowadays just don't accept that, or even worse, they recognize that they just don't care about being impartial. They are knowingly biased and they believe that being biased is a good thing.
It's very common to see among leftist ideologies that are inherently divisive and tribalistic (eg.: Marxist class warfare; Nazi racial division), it's members simply throw any rational understanding of morality out the window and just regress to monkey like "me group good, other group bad" and justify all their actions on that.

Found this Tyvek bivy for ~$30 and want to see if these are reasonable expectations for pairing it with my normal tarp. These are the use cases I'm thinking:

-packing it for rain, in case wind changes and blows rain through an A-frame or lean-to

-colder weather, partially for a smidge of extra warmth, and partially as a wind break (sometimes I can feel a strong wind through my sleeping bag)

-warm weather, when I want to open my sleeping bag but not be completely exposed to bugs

-possibly prevent dew wetting my sleeping bag when cowboy camping

I'm not planning on it being a primary shelter, just to supplement a tarp when needed. Tyvek is supposed to be breathable but I don't know to what extent-- I've heard of people making rain jackets with it. I've never seen the appeal of bivies but something this cheap and packable could be useful

>goratex bags
meme. Good backpacks usually have waterproof cover already or you can buy extra rain cover for a few dollars.
He's talking about a bivy bag not a backpack. Why would anyone need to worry about condensation in a backpack?
not even once
using a goretex bivy as a vapor barrier wasn't the question. The question was, can you reduce condensation by lofting the bivy's fabric with clothes. My opinion is that, it might help get a breeze in but a minor factor. The extra lofted space is just space. Even with a vapor barrier like goretex, the goretex layer is not insulation in a way that it will trap heat to move it through the barrier. If the outside is cold the water will condense on the inside. It might still be warm in the bivy, but that doesn't address the topic of condensation. It's a lot of mental gymnastics to the result of 'your campsite matters more'
You used even more words to obfuscate the fact that you don't know what you're talking about.

I'll make it simple--most non goretex bags aren't designed for extreme cold weather. They (you) whoever used a nylon bag and got cold

no shit

You've clearly never used a goretex.

I found this in a lawn at the flats I manage, North england. I know its a bolete but im not sure the genus. The pores are pale yellowish with a rusty staining. Also, the cap should be a perfect dome but this one was damaged.

You stained it, makes it a bit hard to ID.
thats the natural color,
everything surrounding the mushroom is covered with that brown/rust colored powder
its an artist conk, ganoderma applanataum. scratch the white stuff on the bottom and youll see. also if you wet your finger you can run it along the top and eat the spores, yum!
cool! those are wood ear or mu-erh
Sigues vivo? You should only pic those with a huge cap (well over 10cm diameter), don’t even get the small ones, those carry the same toxin as the death cap (amanita phaloides).
That said, I fucking love macrolepiotas, they are so versatile.

Can you recommend fruits/veggies that will grow in sod?

There's a public park that's cleaned heavily after winter, one big mow before june, and then periodically mowed in more confined areas.
I want to plant in an area that's left to grow from june on.

The only disturbance I'm willing to do is lift up sod to drop seeds, and maybe break it up a bit. And I guess liquid fertilizer.

Climate is north east US.
throwing seeds on a patch of grass is essentially just feeding birds.
>I'm willing to do is lift up sod to drop seeds
no seedling will manage to puncture through.
>and maybe break it up a bit
that's what you'll have to do. remove a patch of grass and break up the soil underneath a bit.

if you actually want to harvest and they mow in june, then you're limited to leafy greens i guess, like spinach. the plants will probably all be eaten by all kinds of critters long before you even think of harvesting. veggies in general require frequent care and protection.
you can forget about fruit.

just do flowers instead.

or even better, just leave it be. if you don't own land, get a couple of small pots and grow some herbs on your windowsill.
parsnip-takes a lot of seed to get established but will self sow after
wild carrot-same as parsnip
cultivated burdock-they have varieties for leaves and for roots
hyssop-dont know how to establish, but find it growing naturalized
horseradish-plant large root sections, forms huge colonies that last forever
ground plum-wild grassland plant
wild tarragon-forms large clumps. tasty spring shoots
mushrooms-spread with spore mass slurry
rosa arkansana- live planting. forms large colonies.
stinging nettle-spring shoots
mint- plant root sections where the cattails stop
plantain-sprinkle seeds on shallow puddles in disturbed soil in spring. seeds are a powerful thickener and demulcent
dandelion-dont need to plant
comfrey-plant root sections. some people eat it. i think its a gloopy mess.

Why not plant native flowers that help promote biodiversity in the area :3
tomatoes will grow anywhere fruit wise veggies you have tons of options but I wouldn't since people will eat them go with what the bee said plant flowers however since someone has already done some eco terrorism their self by planting grass you're kinda shit outta luck I suggest destorying large patches and planting clover wait a year then plant fruit/veggies/flowers
because those are colloquially known as "weeds" and they'll get removed.

OP should consider planting something, but put rocks or a wire fence around it so it looks like a planned, decorative garden. If the mowers are a paid service, they won't know that it's a cuckoo garden and they'll mow around it and leave it alone.

Pest Control Technician here. They're trying to get into your insulation for winter. You probably have cracks in your seal/eaves like other Anons have said. They're going to be attracted to anything that produces heat around your house. They'll be out of your hair in a few weeks once it's too cold for them to be outside, but you'll see them again in spring when they emerge from wherever they nested in your walls/house. They don't really DO anything to your home so I don't really see the issue people have with them unless they're massed in ridiculous numbers like I've seen on some houses.

The spider grabbed the stink bug and tried to bite into it but I guess it was too hard and it gave up.
