what is the best sock/croc combo?
I really like crocs for portaging, and base camp, but I dont find them comfortable in bare feet.
what are good socks that dry quickly, can be worn without footware, and dont sag off your feet when wet?

yeah but they are super comfy, easy to slip on, clean, and dont look any gayer than sandles with socks.
Easy on...easy off
No socks, like a chad!
they feel nasty when wet, and are too thick to slide into crocs. i need thin socks

Burn Asheville to the ground and I’ll willingly surrender the title to you
What about all the other cities desperately clinging to their "southernness" as they're overtaken by liberal coasties?
Hopefully burning Asheville to the ground will be enough of an example. If not, there’s always more fire to go around.

What to do about people stealing the food you're growing, and how to handle those situations.

This is obviously an issue for more urban gardeners, but I'm sure rural folks have issues too. Especially given our current outlook of food shortages.

Shoot them.
I don't live around brown people so I've never had this problem
Shoot them. Alternatively you can beat them with a 2x4 while you wait on the cops to show up and arrest them. If niggers need to steal food to eat they can go steal from the multi-billion dollar a year profit supermarket down the street.

What does it actually take to learn to survive in the wilderness indefinitely? I'm a city retard who never leaves their apartment so I wouldn't even know where to begin.
52 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Start with camping - learn to set up a tent, start a fire, cook something simple over one weekend. Then move up to a week - that will bring in new challenges. Then learn foraging, fishing, hunting, trapping, building shelters. Then do all these, but in the winter, which is a whole different issue entirely. As you do these things you'll learn more and more and understand what you are capable of and if you keep at it, in a couple of years you will know exactly when you're actually capable of actually surviving long term. It's possible, but the road is long and you have to really commit, otherwise you either quit or become another missing hiker who thought he can cut it in the forest with a tarp and a swiss army knife.
Then, after doing just a few of these things, realize what real problems are. Realize how cushy your life is. Realize that being afraid of talking to women or getting a job or whatever it is you're running from isn't near as hard as what you thought "the easy life" was.
Surviving in the wilderness "indefinitely" is called homesteading anon. Requires farming skill, animal husbandry, carpentry, bit of engineering know-how and a wide skillbase of things we just don't really do in the modern era anymore.
Self sufficiency is what people a couple hundred years ago did when they packed up everything they had into a couple of Conestogas and plopped somewhere where the dirt was black and the rain was regular and built a home.
Having a community though is ultimately the end goal.
It means you know how to hunt. Only a couple kills can keep a man alive all year.

I've recently gotten a bonsai (Dwarf Japanese Garden Juniper) and want to keep alive as long as possible. Two problems with that: I live in a desert, and I've only ever taken care of succulents. Where do I start?

I've found a spot for it that gets a LOT of very indirect light but is out of the sun; it's shaded by a slat roof and sits in a corner just out of reach of direct sunlight, so I think I should be fine on that front.

So far, I've figured out that I need a soil mixture that will retain water but not be soggy, and to err more on the side of clay soil than sandy soil. Is this correct? Will coco coir be a decent additive to keep water in there and prevent it from drying out? I have some akadama which I was planning to mix with some gravel and clay soil from my yard (since, well, desert - plenty of clay soil here)

Semi related to OP but I have this long leaf pine I’m trying to grow indoors. I figure the taproot is pretty long so I got it a 3 ft deep pot. It’s in my 1 bed room apt rn and I just dumped some fertilizer and garden soil at the bottom and filled the rest with sand. I put more sand and decayed matter at the top. I don’t know if it’ll stay alive but I pulled it from a fresh fire line so I figure it’s fucked either way
pines are very sensitive. it will probably die. you are better off finding a very tiny one and transplanting it into a pot without disturbing the roots at all. don't keep it indoors. keep it outside in the sun.
It will die without winter cold.
>long leaf pine in a pot
I have a long leaf. It's about 80 feet tall and 4 feet in diameter.
I had a bonsai that I got from IKEA like 8 years ago. Took great care of it. Left for work out of town for a month and asked my girlfriend to just give it a spritz of water and set by the window once a week. Came back to this withered black thing because she “forgot” about it despite it being on the kitchen table where she sets her purse. I hate women. It was like losing a child.

There are 250,000 lakes in Ontario.
4000 over 3 square km
15 over 400 square km

I grew up around the Greats, so to me a lake is "freshwater I can't see across." However there are hundreds of lakes well worth seeing, not to mention the rivers!

Good evening anons. I’ve been trying to put together a survival/prep kit because society has been progressively been going to shit at an exponential rate, and i think there is a good chance everything could collapse by the end of the decade. Any recommendations on brands of freeze dried or other long-lasting preserves.

I am trying to make a kit that I would be able to survive off of for roughly a year. I want to buy lots of freeze dried chicken, powdered milk, and rice atm, as well as multivitamins. Im also considering buying a small solar panel and a small distillery to purify water. Im mainly looking for the cheapest brands so I can buy in bulk. Any other food recommendations? I am having trouble finding alot of nonperishables because I have wheat egg, S-O-Y, and other bean allergies.

If anybody has any books on small farming they recommend Id also beinterested. Any recommendations on traps/hunting rifles would also be appreciated, there are lots of rabbits and deer in the midwest.

Go find a comunity. Go ecofarming. Go learn actual usefull skills for your comunity.

That idea of surviving a colapse just shooting people and looting for a couple of weeks its almost childish. I think its bc of that usa indivitualistic values from the colonial era.

General thread or whatever.
Okay so I have this leef 0 degree sleeping bag which works well. I actually slept in it in the summer in Illinois and it was pretty warm, I had to have it open. I'm going to Utah in the summer (late July) should I even bother taking this? I know the desert can get cold at night but would a 3 season bag keep me just as warm?

I run a Softie 6 for 2 seasons and a sleeper expedition for the nippier 2, both are pretty damn good quality although I did lose the pullcord on my sleeper and have to spend an age fishing it out.

Not had any experience with their elite series, but if it's anything like there others I don't think you can go wrong.

you save cost by having to spend 1 time for 3 different bags for 3 different situations,
you lose value when you realize the weight couldve been saved had you just bought one sleeping bag for the purpose of what you want
TNF one bag is the utilitarian choice
stacking sleeping bags seems like it would make them less efficient, the second bag will compress the inner one reducing its loft, army systems probably use them because the can issue one set for simplicity that goes all year and who cares if its not the most efficient it'll toughen the soldiers up, is my guess
