It was a brilliant hike, one of the best routes I've done to date.
luncheon meat/spam is pretty good with bread olives and cucumbers, add some soft cheese too.

Need to kill of my roosters out of my flock, looking for advice on the best way to do it and a couple of methods I've been thinking of.

I have a sharp cleaver , a long axe, and a large fishing net if I want to go melee, I have a chinesium pellet gun from the 70s if I want to kill them at range. It shoots at about 600 fps and doesn't have anything but crooked rusted out iron sights.

What do? And what are some methods I'm not thinking of? Can't shoot them with big gun because I have neighbors.

This is humane but you want the heart to be beating to bleed out properly

Please chop off the head or use fresh razors and go under the fathers and slit the neck, you can tie up the feet to keep them contained posthumously
Bullshit not in the USA there meat birds and the sex isn’t important cause they’re slaughtered at 6-8weeks

Your a tool
My great grandmother would grab one by the neck, put it on a log, and use an axe to chop off their head. All the chickens feared her. Be the alpha, grab your axe and instill fear.
Loop a rope around its next. Hold it by the feet in one hand, rope in the other. Stretch is neck over a log and someone else uses a cleaver to chop the neck. Head comes off in one hit.
you slit the throat and let it bleed out, hang it upside down. I accidentally went to ham my first time and chopped it's head clean off and it started jumping and running for a good 10 seconds.

Anyone here work on a ship? Is it comfy?

>Is it comfy?
A ship is the antithesis of comfy. It's fun as all hell. Being on the ocean is a thrill. But never comfy.
I raced sailboats on multi-day races
10/10 would recommend
Fun fact--all you have to do is go to a marina and volunteer as a deckhand because most boat owners are always in need of more crew and will train you onboard...although I'd learn how rangers tie bowlines first as it's basically the knot you tie 90% of the time and the ranger method is the fastest hands down.

did the ship eventually sink, and did you survive by floating on a coffin?

This week I've been chopping wood for the winter. Lots of logs are uncut, but a lot of work still has been done. Today the weather is warm and I hear birds chirping everywhere. I should ride my bicycle through the woods, haven't done that in a while.

How did you spend your week anons?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Summer is always cumming
Your split firewood should dry out before you burn it, in a best case scenario you would let it dry for 2 years.
If you dont have firewood for the next winter, now is the time to do it!
retards live above the 45°
Yeah, of course it needs to be dryed, although 6 months tends to be enough, but that could just be because summers are very hot in my place.
Gonna saw wood for winter next weekend. Still have a cord left from this past winter. Go through about 3 cords a year here in PA.

What are some good /out/ podcasts?
40 replies and 9 images omitted. Click here to view.
Spooked is good. The people telling the stories obviously believe them, which makes it much more engaging. My soft friend grew up cloistered in a Christian cult. He banned me from playing that podcast on our road trips. Freaked him out too much. Probably the best produced spooky story podcast. There's a paywall but you can always pirate it.
Oh yeah it's good /out/ since a lot of the stories take place in /out/ locations. There's a Hawaiian guy that has multiple stories. He found a crashed airplane in the mountains, he went spelunking and hiking in others. Can't recommend it enough.
I'm the fag who travels around the USA.. you can only listen to Spotify so much before you start hearing the same music over and over... its pretty annoying for me.

its not /out/ related. but while riding- I would put on the mike rowe podcast [dirty jobs guy] they about hour and thirty long. He's not preachy and some of them I really enjoyed and agreed with and even learned a thing or two.

his episode [dont know what one atm] with the guy who build beds for children who need beds. is still one of my favorites. The biggest take away from that one for me was actually about mission statements... and how often times charities start out with something good, then branch out and try to do everything, instead of just sticking to what works for them. and how its very important to stick to your mission statement.

Hope that helps-

Leave no trace. I bet you just piss on a tree instead of a pack out bag.
Just find two similar sized rocks sightly apart and sit on them, poop. It's not that hard.
The bucket is bulky and inconvenient and whoever brings or owns one is either car camping or too much of a pussy to shit outdoors.
Pee and poop are biodegradable

What native plants are you growing this year? Waiting for summer so I can forage some seeds for 2024, only have some milkweed, coneflower, and winterberry to plant this year
69 replies and 11 images omitted. Click here to view.
All the random stuff that just grows relentlessly in my yard (elderberry, turks cap, mulberry, blackberries, and tons of random small weed/flowers I don't know the names of) plus gonna go find some more deer tongue to get a big patch growing, love the way it smells in the breeze.
Other than that gonna just get a mix of native wildflowers to throw all over my front lawn cause lawns are gay and because it will piss off my neighbors on one side and these uppity apartments across the street that are constantly over mowing their grass and spraying chemicals and shit to maintain their ugly monoculture.
based as fuck
If those blackberries are Himalayan blackberries you need to murder the fuck out of them immediately, though.
Are there better ways to identify death caman and wild onion? I was out in my yard today and notcied there's a bunch of it, probably both, growing. I know you can tell by the way the grass is shaped, but to me, an untrained eye, it's difficult to tell. The bulbs of the death caman are more round compared to wild onion, aren't they? And just for clarity, no I have not ingested any.
Yes, you've mastered incoherence, rambling, and the inability to make a logical argument--congratulations. More evidence wasn't necessary but thanks for it anyways.

Recently purchased my first pair of loggers for the upcoming fire season. White's crew boot. What would y'all recommend as far as treatments/break in goes? I've already got the tongue folding nicely and swapped out the factory insoles with some spares I had that aren't as squishy.

Once I start putting them to use, how do I best maintain them? Any recommendations as far as oiling/conditioning/waxing goes? I read the brief pamphlet that came with them which warned against using wax. Specific brands would be appreciated so I know what to look for. Will post some cool pics from the season in a few months

You won't have time to break them in, just start busting out 10+ mile hikes almost daily, fire season coming quick.

I wish my state had forest fires :(
gonna be on an engine. been running 15 miles a week or so and hiking 3-5 with a 55lb pack every few days. anything else you'd recommend?

No, the complexes I go to require me to walk there since I have no car and are very big and make me walk around a lot. I spend more time going from building to building than actually inside them.
Link related it's one of the places I was at where I was constantly outside going on a hike.
Also I'd like to argue that this thread has more of a reason to exist than yet another gearthread where the people posting in them don't even go outside
Just make sure that you have good boots and wear gloves. The last thing you want is to get tetanus by cutting yourself on a piece of rusty metal.

snort the instant coffee powder.
Eat the entire MRE. Its meant to be eaten as a unit to keep you regular but if you eat only the main and snack and skip the drink mix/coffee/jalapino cheese its not going to sit right. Eat the meal element even if you dont like it.

-drink water, more than you usually do, every menu item is laden with salt to replenish the shit you'd be sweating out, which is why they're great hiking/field food but terrible sit-around-at-home food, especially since most americans are permanently in a state of severe dehydration because retarded soda chugging faggots
-dont eat the cheese or drink the drink mixes, they're sugar/salt bombs and you probably don't need either
-stop eating other shit that fucks your digestive system up, like coffee

you can now shovel as many mres into you as you want with zero side effects
side note, if you're eating 3/day you can probably skip all the "extras" plus a side or two while still meeting your calorie requirements for the day even while /out/ unless you're like, 6'2 180lb+ with a TDEE of 2600kcal, if eating 2/day just eat the whole thing and you'll easily meet caloric requirements even while doing pretty intense work, the mains are absurdly dense and you can count on getting 1000 calories out of each even while throwing some shit away

How is it anything but the Western Prairie of Canada and the USA? The native grass is almost completely replaced by either agriculture or introduced grasses to pasture cattle on. I realize that the loss of grass isnt quite as dramatic as the loss of rainforest, but the scale is much more vast.
Yeah agreed. Prairie destruction is insane and largely unrecognized. There weren't too many fewer bison than there are cows currently (about 30 million in both cases, for bison that estimate is on the low end actually); I can't help but imagine a timeline where wild bison are manage and hunted and we got to keep real prairies. Insane to think at one point there were as few as 300 bison.
So we need more contained natural fires to help some of the native ecosystems fix themselves

A key difference is that bison eat much less than cows do, which is why they could support such a herd size on the native grasses. Cows simply require more calories to maintain their higher fat levels, especially pregnant in the winter.

Would Insulated Coveralls provide enough warmth to work as a suitable lighter weight alternative to a Sleeping Bag? I ask only because I think they would, and I could save myself a lot of room in my pack if so, as my Sleeping Bag takes up far too much!

Yeah, your bf will have to fend for himself. Hammocks are generally solo. Expensive too. $130 for a good tarp, $40 for a hammock, $75 for a bugnet, maybe $40 for suspension… it adds up. It’s like buying a new tent, but customized. Then you’ll need an underquilt if you want to use it beyond summer (real summer).
Hmm. Hard to justify for solo too when I'd rather invest in a bivvy I can carry myself for 4 seasons here. Good info though. I may try to use the eno. I do already have a bug net for it, so I would just have to get a tarp. Thanks, bros.
What ground pad are you using and what’s its r-value? I’m sure it’s greater than zero. A hammock will always win when it comes to keeping you cool.
