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.

What are the legal ramifications of living in the woods?
Not trying to larp but if tomorrow I decided I wanted to live a nomadic life, what laws would I be breaking?
In this larp I would be carrying around a pistol and shotgun. Both openly.
I would fish for food and possibly some small game.
If I'm able to find someone to help me with a larger animal to skin and exchange the meat, then deer too(don't worry about details on shotguns and deer just the legal stuff).
Mostly be in state parks.
Maybe have a goat or too to use as pack mules for my stuff.
What legally, could the government fuck me over on?
Hypothetically of course

Good video.
I think it's a pretty good way to relate it's to what Ted said.
Something about how freedom nowadays isn't real freedom, but a manufactured byproduct of the system to keep it's people happy enough to get them to work. An illusion to keep people docile.
He obviously put it a bit more succinctly then I could.
You know I think the problem is that people were artificially too separated by the system that they can't fathom living with other people. Which is what you would need to do if you were planning on living in the woods. I can't think of a time where a "lone wolf" type was able to survive in the wild themselves.

got any advice about desalinating water that's not completely impractical like a bottle solar still or thousands of dollars like an actual desalinification machine?
find another way to get water. there's a reason why it's not done on industrial scales any where on earth unless absolutely necessary (think dubai). LA for example, lots of sun, next to the ocean, and still they rape the colorado dry for water.

for example my land has a well, but the arsenic levels are so incredibly high filtration is not really possible, so for alternatives to I looked into desalination. Basically it just was not feasible:

>boiling water takes a huge amount of energy
>generates water very slowly
>removes ALL minerals, which can fuck up your piping/tubing/appliances
>mineral content must be re-added prior to drinking, else it can leach minerals from your teeth and bones

(wound up settling on having water trucked in every month or so -- until we can finish develop our spring; which is thankfully arsenic free)

in a survival situation, sure make a solar still, but for more long term water usage, just about anything else is a better bet. If there's not enough rain for collection, and you can't get a well -- that might very well be the reason why the land was probably cheap and vacant to begin with.

I mean, it's anecdotal, but I live near Libby MT, which was a big asbestos mining area back in the 50s. Yeah, mesothelioma is a big issue with the older population, but it seems almost totally random who got fucked. You'll hear about mine operators in their 80s who breathed it in for 35 years and are fine, but their wife who only washed their clothes are on permanent ventilators. Weird shit like that. I think it's almost genetic. Shit my great grandma smoked a half a pack a day from when she was 15 until she was 91. I dunno.
Maybe it’s just all the hype around the substance, but the idea of having any amount of asbestos in my lungs is absolutely petrifying.

I'm only worried that exposed asbestos would have saturated the stagnant air with fibers. I didnt see or disturb any dust but as asbestos is invisible I couldn't know what kinds of concentrations would be in an abandoned building.
You've been walking in and out of asbestos filled buildings your whole life without realizing it. Unless you were rolling around in it, it's not going to hurt you. Even if you WERE rolling around in it, you won't fucking know if it fucked you until 25-30 years from now. Stop being a panicky bitch. It's faggots like you that stop us from building with one of the greatest materials known to man.

Holy shit does anyone else hate campfires?

Last time I went camping solo, I was in the middle of collecting wood and had a huge epiphany “What the fuck am I doing?”

Fires are great when you're out with a group. Bullshitting around the campfire is just classic camping and classic Americana for that matter. It really brings people together and helps everyone open up.

If you're alone, they're basically useless. Rather go to bed and watch a movie on my phone while eating tasty snacks.
know how I know you don't go /out/ often?
not who you're replying to but I'm curious. tell us how you know? lol
I’m on a 5 day solo camping trip, I’ve never been camping before.
On my first night I wasn’t too worried about the fire because I didn’t know what the fuck I was doing. I tried to start one but couldn’t get it going, wasn’t too worried. Then dark came and a thousands mosquitoes started eating me, I had to hide in my tent. Throughout the night I heard the weirdest noises I’ve ever heard in my life, at one point it sounded like a helicopter landing right beside my tent. Then I woke up in the middle of the night to something pressing in on the side of my tent and I screamed and it yelped back before running away, it was a dear.
The second night I figured I should really work on that fire for the mosquitos but it started pouring raining and soaked all of the damned wood around me. I tried for like 2 hours before it got pitch dark with no fire and tons of mosquitos again.
Tonight is my third night and I finally got one going after figuring out that dead branches hanging in the trees were dry, I collected tons of them and they burned really well.
My fire finally went out after about 6 hours, which I watched the entire time.
I really miss that damn fire right now, I’ll be sure to collect more wood tomorrow.
Heil Prometheus
most of the places I end up camping either dont allow fires or are under fire restrictions in summer, so I just get by with a gas cooker for food and some citronella candles.
i pop the candles into old salsa jars and it's perfect.
nice comfy warm lighting without any fire risk, keeps the bugs away still and isnt blindingly bright or stinky smoke.

Im about to do 80 kilometer march to test if I am up to it.

My longest previous walk has been 60 kilometers, but that was in deep wilderness in Finnish lappland. This time it will be mainly along the roads, with some forest shortcuts in here and there. Road goes trough countryside and deep forest.

I will get my water from springs, lakes or snow (my walks starts at december 1st.). There is one small village shop after the first 20 kilometers, after that I have to use only my backpack and foraging skills.

Equipment will be ALICE medium pack, plash-palatka shelter halfes, and either groundsheet or hammock. I probably wont take any firearms with me, as wildlife dangerous wildlife is mosty wolfs and they are afraid of humans. Brown bears are rare and shy. Skinwalkers and trolls seem to consentrate on lappland.

So, tell me /out/, is there something that I need to consider or I need to pack?

So I'm thinking about thru hiking this bitch. Anyone else here ever done it or done a good portion? (Half, entire state, etc.)
It seems doable, I don't mind drastic change. I really want to do it.
My biggest concern is do you need a bunch of money? How do people sustain themselves for several months? Do you just get food from checkpoints/whatever the park service has set up or ranger stations? Some shit? I'd like to know if I really need a bitchin chunk of change to do this or if i can just manage. I can't imagine much foraging is allowed on protected forest land or federal forest land.
Help me out bros, tryna figure out how to do this right.
Pic related is me in the linville gorge, NC

I finished a southbound through-hike of the AT a few weeks ago. Ill answer any questions you have.

First of all, just do some research and buy the AWOL guide. No offense, but I can tell by these questions that you've done basically zero research on your own.

You do need money, obviously. I spent about $4.5k all told (4.5 month hike). That includes a bunch of gear, multiple nights in various motels, airfare, etc. If I really pinched pennies I could have done it for around $2k. You're going to be out there for 4-6 months, a few thousand bucks isn't really that bad when you think about it.

In some places you can forage for food. Apples, grapes, pawpaws, mushrooms, etc. However this cannot be your primary source of food as it will not give you enough calories and you will waste too much time doing it. You have to realize that during a through hike you're going to be hiking literally all day every day.

You get food and supplies from small towns and truck stop like places near or sometimes on the trail. This depends heavily on where you are. For instance, in NY and NJ you can basically stop at a deli every day. Other places you have to hitch hike 10-15mi to get to a shitty dollar store.
Fanks anon
The money thing was my only real concern.
I have done a little, but not much. All I know is I'll have some instances where I won't be near any infrastructure for a while. Meaning id have to stock up before those parts.
How exactly are you hitting delis and small towns? They aren't far off trails? I know a lot of access points are near towns, but I wasnt expecting to hear that honestly. Thanks for the insight though.

Yes, there are literally delis and convenience stores on the trail. A few times, the trail literally goes through a town. Hot Springs NC, Harper's Ferry WV, Delaware Water Gap PA, to name a few. That's not the norm, but it does happen occasionally, and those towns are usually pretty sweet places to spend the night.

Typically, I would carry 3-5 days of food. I would hitchhike or roadwalk into town, usually just a few miles, and buy cheap food at a dollar store or grocery store. A good resupply is all about the planning, knowing how much food you need to the next resupply spot. All of that info will be in the AWOL guide, or another guide.
This is all a great help, couldn't thank you enough dog. I will be checking out the AWOL guide.
Also props to you for doing the thru hike, much respect. Good luck on any future endeavors in that regard.

Most people budget $1000 per month, and I found that to be right on the money.

I could have cut it down a bunch I think. I spent a lot "eating out" so to speak, ie when I came to a town I'd eat a bunch of food at a restaurant or bar or something (I was mad hungry). Hotels and motels were an unnecessary expense as well. I mostly used them to get out of the rain, as there were 3 tropical storms lol. Same could be said about hostels, but they are usually very cheap, like $20, and they're definitely a part of the trail experience. I spent a lot on gear too. I had to buy a couple extra layers once the weather got cold, and I bought a new pack about a month in because my old one stopped fitting me. Those could have been avoided with some planning.

Do budget for shoes/boots though. I went through 4 pairs at 100 bucks each.

I think I did pretty well budget-wise though, I met a lot of rich boomer types that probably blew over $10k.
