Anyone ever try buying line from herculespro? Significantly cheaper than amazon, free shipping too, makes me wonder if it's a scam. 2000m 40lbs braid for $66? Smells fishy (no pun intended)

Been to some great rivers and waterfalls along the great ocean road but nothing more than that.
Looking at doing a section of the new GPT soon. Probably gonna be chockas though now that everyone is out of lockdown, school holidays, plus it's just opened. Most of the campsites are hike-in though so that would rule out most of the glampers.

For something closer to the city my most recent camping trip was in Yarra Ranges NP, not too far from Warburton. Doesn't feel really remote but some nice spots.

Yea I do freelance 3D modeling work for a company I used to work for. I used to do full-time for that company, but now just do it part-time. I also have another tech gig that started as a volunteering job and now gets me a couple hundred a month which is okay when you're traveling cheap.

The uncomfy part of it is not having a home lol, not knowing who is going to be in the same room as you in the hostel (a lot of the time it is stinky / loud people). Sometimes being lonely, so I go to a lot of social events.

How old are you and do you have a job right now?

How does camouflage work when terrain varies so much?
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
As the first post pointed out, modern military camo patterns are primarily to break up the shape of a human form, not blend you in to what's behind you. That's what the weird patterns are for, making you look less human. This is more useful when you're moving, we've evolved to pick out a moving human form very easily.

If you look at earlier camouflage, WWI, WWII era stuff, you'll see a lot of solid colors,no patterns. You might not recognize it as camouflage, but there is a reason the color is some kind of drab green or brown instead of the bright reds and blues common prior. Solid colors work well when you're still, but not so good when you're moving.

Anyway, since the patterns are mostly to break your shape up, as long as the colors don't clash horribly with the background (neon pink, for example), it works well enough. If the colors of the pattern do match the terrain closely, all the better.

Militaries are always looking for mythical universal camo patterns, because uniforms are expensive, and they don't want to pay for sets of uniforms and gear in a half dozen different color schemes per soldier.

Maybe 1 in 10 are pretty well adjusted when they get out. I worked with a guy that was actually a retired Sergeant Major, but you would have never known. He never spoke about his time in and he acted like a normal, well adjusted person. Of course he was in his sixties by the time I met him, so he had a decade or two to mellow out after leaving the Marine Corps.

>what's your point
0331 is machine gunner
usually on defense they are more concerned with initial concealment than riflemen, since they move around less in firefights
so his interest in camouflage is pretty good
no? because he isnt a skinny twig like you doesnt mean fat- strength is a word perhaps
you are insecure

Fellow 5'8" manlet and I rode my DR650 the length of East coast Aus twice. Don't worry about seat height you'll adjust your style to suit, stay light on the seat and up on the pegs. The 650 can be lowered at the rear shock though which did add extra confidence for me.

Heres some tips from a serial /out/ pooper.
Have something to wipe with, I use corn cobs. Packing paper wipes makes you a faggot, don’t do that. Piss before you shit, you don’t want piddle on your shoes while your dropping logs. Do not clench your cheeks while you drop, it will make it harder to clean, and you can practically get away with a ghost poop if you don’t clench your cheeks. If you have diarrhea and or spicy shit, than you are probably a weakling or a shitskin and you should probably not be /out/.
are you afraid that a fly will lay eggs on your anus and you wont be able to get the maggots out of your intestines because they swim upstream slightly faster than your body can produce poopies?
I bury it. In most places this is acceptable for Leave No Trace. Where I go, I'm supposed to pack out the toilet paper but I bury that, too.

There are many models of trowels in different weights and price ranges. I got an ultralight one for 20 bucks. Now I can shit /out/side with a clean conscience whenever I want, knowing that I don't leave any visible trace.

>Do not clench your cheeks while you drop
Damn this is good advice, I've always feared the shits where you have to scoop out shit from between your cheeks because you couldn't get a clean drop. Now I know how to avoid that.

Is it more folklore or fact? How is this kind of thing studied?

How bout three sisters? You can also replace corn with sunchoke which is a perennial
why even bother? interplanting with other crops keeps bugs away
More variety of food, why plant two rows onion and two rows garlic rather then one or the other
There both susceptible to onion maggot not more susceptible if together
Add dill or carrot to deter adult onion flies
I'd add to this by saying that the facts are for sure out there, but a quick google search is more likely to reiterate folklore-level advice (not to mention conflicting information) than research-based facts.
>pretty well
There are entire university departments and research institutes developed to agrarian (farming) research. People do things like plant crops in different soils, with different fertilizer, different light conditions, then weigh and count the yield. Most agrarian research is likely targeted to traditional monoculture farming, and stuff like companion planting research is likely to cross over into Greenpeace permaculture vegan rainbowy hippie-dippy territory - but it's getting more attention.

>his dad getting angry and calling him a cocksucker in Italian
well, did he suck cock?
no, his dad was just mad at him
A friend of mine tried this before and she gave up after 4 days of the 2 weeks. She told me that the place where she was supposed to stay wasn't at all like the pics, and the working conditions weren't like they were described at all. Also told me that the landlord (whatever you want to call him) kept entering her room without even knocking and knowing she was inside the room.
So if you are a girl don't do it, specially alone.
If you're a guy and like being enslaved, go for it.
Not all experiences are like that. I had a pretty positive experience even in my worst place. That said look out for red flags from the person you're contacting just in case they are lying. It's a waste of time to go out in the country only to leave the next day.

Does anyone here know of any good sources on historical chicken farming techniques? Preferably Chinese or other eastern sources. I've had good success growing corn the way Native Americans did and I'm wondering if I can get the same success raising my chickens in a more traditional manner.

Thank you anon. You don't have to feel bad about being a dick, this is 4chan, it's expected.
What do you niggas do with all the eggs y'all have?
Sell them. It costs me about $0.80/dozen to produce them and I sell them for $2-$3 at the local auction. However most of mine go into hatching eggs for various projects and I sell the surplus chicks. Why make $2 a dozen when you can make $2 a chick.
He was right to be a dick though.
Those "ancient Chinese traditional techniques" were for 3 pound jungle fowl. You can't raise modern breeds with hippy dippy bullshit.
Your birds will slowly starve to death and suffer every moment.
