Why? If there's import restrictions on woodstoves, it's news to me.

In some places, woodstoves are regulated for safety and exhaust pollution level. I dunno if that's the case with this one but that might be what the seller is afraid of.

How large is your operation in terms of employees, equipment?
How many hours a week do you put in, how seasonal is it in your area?
How much do you charge, what do you take home yearly?
What do you try to do or what knowledge do you have that puts you ahead of your competitors?

You just gotta find someone that needs some help around their place. Then ask them if they have friends of family you can get referred to. Connections are really key for starting this work.

I like tents. More than other gear, to a strange degree. I can get into packs and boots, but for some reason the principles and execution of tent design gets me really stoked. I don't know why.
Is there any gear that you are really into?

ps. this is not a shill thread. Sa_____a fags keep out.

No one is saying hammocks suck or don't work dude. We're just saying the versatility in pitching is generally reduced. You rely on trees to pitch, tents rely on the ground. This has nothing to do with how much we like hammocks. Stop being retarded.
>>
>>2368346
Oh boy, another great thing is when you run with the clothes in a bundle, holding the hot stove in no-can-do's and rifle on your back while some other poor guy carries the tent, just so that you can get out of the area fast enough to evade the pursuers. I still get vietnam tier flashbacks whenever someone whispers "IRTI" in to my ear during night.

>>2368345
Yes those are essentially military tents and designed for company or platoon sized groups accommodations, and they are transported in to the campsites with logistical trucks.

>hammock camping
Don’t think it’s a good idea here. Went camping once overnight with my mum when we got to a place late and couldn’t check in caravan park, just pitched a tent down a back road in country town. One of the trees came down in the wind near us. Trees falling and branches falling are a higher risk here.

I have 4 pairs of these and love them. Can confirm that here in PA they are great all year. Have many, many hikes under my belt with them. A little shoe grease to keep the water out and some replacement laces keep these going for years with use once a week. Wish they were still $30 new though.

I'm not buying yoir FUCKING shoes unless a concerted effort is made in keeping the toe box wide and unabated.

It matters 0% how "comfy" you think they are if you're slowly crippling yourself by smushing your toes for the sake of aethetics.

This is why I only purchase Altra from now on. I want healthy feet when I'm 80. I literally own three Altras: one for hiking, one for running, and one for every day going to work.

It's a giant p. cubensis Not sure exactly what veriety. It's leucistic. White cap, but colored gills and spores. It's VERY potent. I made a half gram chocolate with some of it. It's one of the strongest mushrooms I've tried so far.

Deadass no reason to bring an e-tool anywhere. Way too much weight for the amount of use they get. If you're really so scared of using a stick to dig a hole in for poopin, just bring a trowel.

It is a fair point, as long as people don't respond to it more than other posts.
>>2369823
A trowel is good, yes, for digging small holes for such activities- but some people while out do more digging than that, and a trowel is too small for that use. Extended stay. And during that, they might need to whack a few branches, which the shovel does better too.
They both have a role, and even in the garden I find myself using an e-tool for most of the work since its small enough to dig smaller holes but can carry substantial amounts of dirt when I need to fill them back up
and when whacking thru actual roots, which a trowel cannot do

>Weirdly hard for a white Canadian citizen to get citizenship though.
yeah you basically have to marry for it, or get a sponsored job (read: you have to be worth it for a company to pay you extra money to sponsor you)

It's easy to get a non-immigrant visa (student visa, TN worker visa), so you can live in the states and buy gunysand stuff, but those will not help your chances at a getting a greencard or citizenship at all
>>
>>2372424
Yup, I looked into it. I would have an easier time heading over to my father's home country and renaturalizing into Germany. But fuck that to be honest, place seems like a degenerate shithole and mostly city.
Canada isn't a horrid place to live, it could be ideal if the government would just leave us the fuck alone, just the worst nanny state next to the UK or Australia. That said, there are many off grid people out west that avoid all that.
At least I have top tier out territory to keep enjoying.

this, if you're lucky to get them when they're just ripe but before the bugs get to them, they're delicious

reminds me a lot like passionfruit, even the way you eat it too with the seeds and pulp inside
