How was the Canary Islands in general?
Please share your experience, I am pondering visiting it during winter.
Well, I was born and raised there but emigrated almost 10 years ago. I mostly just visit in Christmas, those pictures are precisely from the last time I was there. What is it exactly that you want to know? Anyway, now with corona things can be problematic as it has been declared a risk zone. Anyway, winters are sunny and mi,d with temperatures between 15 and 25.

Anyone know any good spots to pick mushrooms on the west coast of Scotland preferably around Ayrshire?

They prefer upland and feed on dying grasses. So check most any hilly area with browning grass on it.

Does anyone have information on Tasmanian pattern axe heads? I've looked into the Arvika 5 star and the Helko Werk Tasmanian but have seen videos of people comparing them to old Tasmanian's and how they are not the same? Also I'd rather restore an old head than buy new.
They're basically a heavy (4-4.5lb) short, wide head on a relatively short handle. I used a few growing up in Tassie, but I had no idea they were specifically named their own thing until just now reading this post.
You can find them all over in Tassie, at antique stores and the like. Problem is, the hipster craze has made old farm gear go way up in price.
Why do you want a Tasmanian axe? For competition?

Hey /out/, a biologist here
I just trapped an ant in tree CUM (pine resine), it looks kinda dope.
Don't let my career fool you, i'm actually stupider than you think. My only reason to believe it's going to get solid and preserve the ant is cause I saw it on jurassic park, i guess only time will tell.
Any cool thing you've found in the wild?

Looking for a good self inflating mattress. Should I get the Thermorest trail scout or the coleman silvertron. Heard mixed things about the trail scout but only positives about the coleman. I like how the trail scout is lighter and more compact but im just not sure if it would be comfortable enough.

when it comes to these inflating mattresses, what should i look for in them when buying? will any do? i usually buy stuff second hand due to being cheaper, but it requires a lot of waiting
whats you guys opinion on non self inflatable mats?
I have a cheap option of both and though the self inflating one is almost triple the volume and weight it is not much more comfortable then the one that needs to be blown up.
pic related is the cheap blow up mat I have and it does its job just fine. wondering what the perks of selfinflating mats are

A friend of mine got that one, even in warmer climates he was cold because it offers next to no insulation. It is comfy tho
If you want cheap, the solution is to buy a nicer pad used. Craigslist, etc.

seriously, nobody takes hummus? it's cheap as fuck
not sure how y'all camp, but me and my friends exclusively only camp on riversides while catfishing. mainly the Mississippi and the zumbro river(MN). and ive gotta tell ya, a tripod and dutch oven is a must, but its only worth it if your cooking for at least 4 people though. you can cook damn near anything in em. if its just you and a friend, go with just a cast iron skillet on the coals.

Looking for a light weight chopper, under 8 oz, something that could chop off repetitively thick tree branches with ease. My mora broke on me after whacking on it for a year. ive been looking at the Terävä Jääkäripuukko 140 but i'm unsure of its chopping capability

>I would not have started this thread if i knew everything about knives

I will drop a little knowledge on you then. The concept of processing firewood with a knife is a modern invention by gear-queer men who want to swing a sword around like a knight in a fairy-tale to solve all their problems. Yes you *can* chop wood with a knife, is there a compelling reason to ? Not really, it's mostly comes down to people being too cool for tools like axes, wedges, saws, etc and want to swing a sword around.
Sorry mate, can’t help you. Mines a heavy weight chopper... if you know shat I mean!
Tramontina Bolo. Get a special grade one from Baryonyx.
I have that exact knife and its honestly done me well. Especially at the price point its been really good.
Why do you need a chopper? If you're going far and light, just find wood that doesn't need chopping. get a normal knife and do the ol' rock stomp to break larger stuff, or leverage between two close trees.

Wtf is wrong with normies?!?! Why is this such a hard concept for them to get? Isn't it common fucking sense to pick up after one's self and not litter?

Is there a final solution to the normie problem or are bored Instathots going to destroy the outdoors for the rest of us?

5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Yeah. Same. One of my favorites (and where I proposed) is up a single lane dirt road mountain pass and used to only be maintained by my great uncle on his own time. Now that he's gone, the trust that owns the forest pays the ranger to take care of it ocassionally.

Like you said though, the problem is you have to pay people and a lot of parks and forests are underfunded either because the owner/government has too much debt or they have more pressing expenses.
Yeah. Not surprised. And very good point. I will say, the trail I was on (Pine Creek Rail Trail) was very well maintained. But I think it also generates a lot of indirect tourism revenue and the horse drawn carriage that runs tours I'm sure pulls in some money for the government.
Maybe a solution is to have more trail running events? That's why I was at Pine Creek and the permitting fees for these things are generally more than half the price of the entry fee.
you have to go back
Rail trails are not the issue. I am talking about less used trails into ravines/canyons/watersheds.

They just fall apart without maintenance at least twice a decade.

St Hubert, pray for these /out/ists

I'm working up to warbow weight, but am frustrated with my left hand shooting. My father's glove is formed for right hand shooting, so it slips off when I switch. Got a new deerskin and am forming it as we speak.
Anybody shrank a glove before? I've got 10 minutes in hot water and am flexing it regularly. Was considering shooting while it dries, but I think it will distort the fingers too much? Should I rehydrate it with olive or mink oil?

Also, composite bestbow.

That map is fucking bulshit. The """"""forest""""" in my country is mostly scrubland divided in hundreds of thousands of small private plots.
the colour scale for this map should run from green to red instead of green to lighter green
Correct. Every country would be down a bit but Germany and the Netherlands in particular would approach 0 very closely.
What for?
I want to spend a month in Iceland planting trees.

Hey frens, I just accepted a full D1 scholarship (wrestling) to a school in DC. I was wondering if there was really any real outdoors stuff to do in the general area. I've heard kayaking in the River aswell as some waterfalls in Maryland but that's about it. Any other cool stuff?
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Thanks! I do plan on having a car on campus. That looks really good and I feel better about it now knowing there's gonna be at least some outdoors stuff to do in my limited free time
Yeah if you have a car there are tons of options. Make sure to check out Spruce Knob and surrounding hiking areas when you have a weekend or vacation time. It's a bit much for a day trip but it is the highest mountain you can drive to easily from DC (4800 ft).


there are TONS of outdoor stuff nearby, check out alltrails
Am at UVA for grad school. Down here in VA is where it's at. Shenadoah or however tf you spell it is beautiful. Hiking, trail running, etc. Download the AllTrails app and search around.

MD sucks imo, look south.
MD has lots of nicer stuff in WESTERN md futher out, where you probably haven't been. Far Western MD and WV are pretty much the same terrain-wise and culturally in some parts.

Shenandoah is the nearest high-ish mountains to DC, yes, but if you go further out the landscape is more interesting and it is less crowded.

Most people ONLY get to shenandoah and never venture further out.

MD (tidewater lands) has a lot of cool forests near DC and boardwalks and nice gentle trails by rivers.

No, it isn't mountains always, but interesting nonetheless.

There is out in every direction from dc
This is my DC-area alltrails favorites collection. 100+ trails near DC for day hiking.

DC has out in every direction you just have to research it like anything else in life.

Has anyone used an electric bike for outdoor activities? Especially hunting? I was looking at the Rokon because they have a smaller footprint than a quad but those fuckers are so loud. For those with ebikes; what kind do you have & how do you like it. Pic kinda related because I still think Rokons are badass.

Think I’d want to see it in person before buying it
Yeah that's definitely true. My experience with e bikes is that they widely vary in suspension, brakes, handlebar comfort, ride comfort, and power delivery to the point where buying them online is pretty risky if you can't try it first.

Maybe craigslist could have one.
In what way are they more useful than an average enduro? Transporting things in the front and bigger tires?
You'd want an electric dual sport that could theoretically do single track but the price tag and the range are both shitty and a craigslist drz ends up the better option.
they have a showroom in Copenhagen where you can see most of the models
