this is kind of an odd take on what you are asking OP
but back when i got out of my wheelchair the last time, doctors said i should take it slow, i did and i know my pace
i would walk until i was the most exhausted ive ever been in my life, i wasnt hiking, i was just walking in my town.
but damn if those, acording to google maps 22 minites of walking, didnt take me a long time and was the most exhausting but illuminating walk

that was where it clicked for me, not gonna be here long, not gonna walk here long, so make the most of it

Springtime edition

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Prince Albert, Carter Hall or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $20.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

I tried the Captain Blacks "Royal" blend and it was similar but not as sweet and aromatic as what I remember. I guess I'll try Lane 1Q next

>>1774417
Unless you last had it under Murray's or even when Dunhill was blending it in house, it's been blended by the same people, STG. They just did it under license for Dunhill, then put the same exact blend on the market again as Peterson.
>>
>>1774478
Not trying to discourage you, but there are a lot of aromatic blends that have gone away in the last couple of decades, and many more are on their last legs, sales-wise. Hopefully you can find the one you’re looking for.
Some other possibles:
Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic
Amphora
Paladin Black Cherry
Borkum Riff
Grainger (always wanted to try this but never have. It only comes in 1lb tubs now, and that’s A LOT of tobacco to buy when trying stuff out)
Half and Half
Sutliff Mixture 79

What's the best rifle for hunting small game like rabbit or pheasant for their pelts? I'm thinking a 22 is the way to go but my Uncle won't stop telling me about his glory days with a 20 gauge shotgun. Wouldn't the pellets fuck up the fur and feathers?

I live in Florida and even I know the only worthwhile thing in milo is the bissel brothers brewery in bum fuck nowhere milo.

OP check out east brook or Franklin. My father's cabin built by my based grandfather and great grandfather is in Franklin and has population of under 500. Everyone is nice. Some guy down the road removed like 9 trees for like 600 bucks. That's like trimming 4 palm trees in Florida. He did most of them for free and the biggest was a fucking monster tree planted in the 1800s based on the rings. Property is fuck cheap and a lot of them live on propane power for electricity and heat. God bless America. This is about as good as it gets for whites. It's a pleasant 30 mile drive to Ellsworth maybe an hour from Bangor depending where you set your house up.

Last pic. We acquired the cabin in said photo from the descendants of the original squatters that no longer used it or wanted to pay taxes as they lived across the pond. My dad paid $500 no fucking joke. The ultimate /out/ living. Its rocky so you can wire your property let pigs be happy fucks and be your pig bros. The loudest noise you'll hear are whites occasionally driving up the road on their 4 wheelers. No bigger bass. No loud Puerto ricans. Winter will suck, the rainy season sucks and summer can get more buggy than florida so be sure to trade out a beater every few years to avoid rust and you should be good.

I have a pair of Duluth dry on the fly flex shorts and I fucking love them. Hiked in a rainstorm and they dried out fairly quick after, very flexible when I had to scramble up some steeper stuff, very comfortable overall. Oh yeah and the crotch gusset means my thighs/balls aren't constricted

i like stretchy jeans. thick enough to walk through thorns without stopping because you don't feel it, durable also.
>>
>>1774291
Jeans are hotter in the summer, colder in the winter. Dries slowly when damp, not flexible, causes chaffing on inner thigh. Cotton also has a tendency of causing hypothermia when wet. But it’s tough and I guess you look cool
>>
Hard to tell what brand those are, but as long as they're light and keep the rain off then it's a great investment. I'd be weary because the cheaper pants tend to not be anywhere near as durable as one that's in the mid 40s range, at least from my experience.

Non-footfags exhibit pathological behaviour. Notice their perpetual anger, their idiotic incredulity. No other fetish seems to inspire such devoted hatred, it is not only that “they don’t get it”, but that for some reason they believe that no one should “get it”, they must crusade against it. It is bizarre. All kinds off odd and abject bedroom rituals get a free pass, and yet partialism for a part of the human body, something on literally almost every single person, inspires obsessive, unbridled antipathy. Perhaps the rage is because other people’s healthy desires reminds the anti-footfag of how they are alienated from their own bodies. It is probably a very Western prejudice, an affliction of modernity (even a century ago I notice in proper bourgeois literature references to “pretty” or “handsome” feet, not something that would appear in today’s literature without the connotation of fetishism). Feet are kept out of sight and out of mind. And keeping them bundled up tight in shoes all day is what is responsible for most of their unpleasant characteristics—infection, odour, misshaping; meaning that when the shoes finally do come off most people, presented with their neglected feet, associate them with disgust... the feet themselves are unfairly blamed rather than the conditions forced upon them. Notice the completely disproportionate commodity fetishism built around shoes. I’ve had some “people” remark to me that they prefer the gaudy design of designer label sneakers over the limb you wear them on. Is there a more rotten, insectoid, consumerist and anti-human attitude than that? Preferring literally cheaply made industrial fibre, cynically marketed, a fad, over flesh and skin of an anatomical marvel which has served us for tens of millennia.

Imagine being camped /out/ inside the Mt Saint Helens exclusion zone for observation. The only soul in hundreds of square miles and you get the first look at the big happening.

It only needs to last for the summer. Better to have a nice assortment of rice, seasoning, and dried fruits than the overpriced crap that is usually sold to hikers.

instant rice, instant potatoes, ramen, some canned stuffs, starkist chicken pouches, jerky, cured pork products, a good blend of seasonings, and an assortment of snack products is all you need. premium stuff like mountain house is nice for the convenience of it but you can make do comfortably for a lot cheaper and with similar ease of cooking.

Hello fellow geology student. I stopped caring sometime between finding ~100 Ticks on myself after picking the wrong sleeping spot when i was at the scouts and getting vaccinated against tick-born encephalitis before a trip to the balkan.

I found the easiest way is to wear short shorts with a tighter fit around the upper legs and just look at your legs from time to time (and after very dschungely parts) to brush them of while they are still crawling for cover.

Just remember or better mark the spot and look for unusual signs of your body. If you get weird big red spots visit your doctor and hint at ticks.

Coastal Finland is not really a humid place in sense of fire starting. Snow is a rather easier issue. Use inside of the branches which stay relatively drier.
