So what your experiences with the Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL 2? I hear both good and bad things. The wind issue is the most pressing issue. I heard it can demolish this tent and others say it's strong enough. So dunno if I should get this tent. Thoughts?

I have the tigerwall ul1 and it's a real nice piece of kit, but I kind of wish I just got some cheap Chinese hiking pole tent because I get anxious setting it up cuz it's so expensive.

Big Agnes makes good shit

>>2650413
I’ve owned it for three years. It’s a fine tent. Way to cramped for two people unless you’re /out with you significant other. Also it’s only semi-freestanding so if you’re camping on a very hard surface (above tree line) you’ll have to use rocks to guy out the bottom of the tent.
Tl:dr I’d get the (discontinued) 3 person (if you can still find it) for more room and it’s fully freestanding

where in the fuck are people paying three hundred fuckin bucks a month for parking lol

coastal cities. https://www.spotangels.com/blog/the-ultimate-nyc-monthly-parking-guide/
In smaller but cramped cities like Boston and San Francisco you'll still find monthly rates between $100-$400.
Most of those cities where parking is expensive, driving can be slow and annoying through traffic and stoplights, while finding a parking spot at your crowded destination can take extra time, hassle and expense. If it's not wet/raining and you don't mind the exertion and possible sweat, cycling is often the most reliable way to travel between two arbitrary points. It can faster than driving when there's traffic.

I lived in a city like this for 10 years. I did have a car and paid ($225/mo) for a parking spot (7 years ago). That's not counting all the incidental rates incurred for garage parking at destinations (anywhere $3-$35 per visit depending on where I was going). But I knew people who didn't have cars at all. They had bicycles and used uber, that was it, and they did it to save money.

Not a very /out/ topic but in general bicycles are a very cost-efficient means of transportation for short range trips.

Any floridanons know if they would be around this time of year? According to google they should be visible year round, even though I know manatee season there doesn't peak until the winter drives them inland. Would I be able to see some at this time of year?

they go further up into the rivers and springs when it gets cold because the water temperature remains consistent in there

Hiking with a wheelie bin, anyone ever done it?

I'm thinking it has several advantages

●more space than a backpack for storage
●can be tied to a Rope around your waste and dragged behind you
●works as a tent as you can sleep inside
●high levels of sturdiness. Built for years of handling by bin men
●can be left behind safely nobody will steal it
●reminder of civilisation
●noise from wheels frightens dangerous animals

I see several advantages and no real problems, I'll just be hiking small mountains

Shut up, retard. If that was a wooden box smeared with animal shit being carted around by a dirty third worlder you'd be screaming based, return to monke, etc. Time to grow up and accept that whites are the only people willing to innovate and that takes trial and error to find the correct solution.

Anyone use a kansbol for camping/backpacking? Why havent they made a carbon steel version ? Carbon steel kansbol would be a nice option
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>2648483
Nta, but the grip is shit on the Kansbol/Garberg in my opinion. Very slippery and plasticky in feel. The Companion grip is far better. It's also 4-5 times more expensive than the Companion, but you are not getting 4-5 times the knife. In fact, I actually find the mini scandi towards the tip makes it less convenient than the uniform full scandi, especially for sharpening. I wouldn't necessarily call it a shitty knife, but it's totally mediocre.
>>2648873
Fixed blade hunting knives suck dick anyway. I've long switched to exclusively using folders for eviscerating deer because they are far less cumbersome, weigh basically nothing and don't poke me in the abs when I'm sitting in a tree stand.
>>
>>2649518
Oh and another advantage I've found in using folders is that they are usually ground very nice and thin behind the edge. Most factory fixed blades (Lionsteel is a huge culprit) come with soft steel and are ridiculously thick behind the edge, meaning you get neither wear resistance nor sliciness, even in something they like to advertise as "super steel".
They do this so they have fewer returns from chipping and breakages. Sad but true.
>>
>>2649518
The thing is that most fixed blade are easier to keep clean if you're cleaning fish or animals all that shit will get down in the folder which is not something you clean everyday. With a fixed blade you can just wipe it off etc. Anyways it's not a huge deal I guess. But yeah fixed blade knives suck to carry around compared to a folder.
>>
>>2649523
True, cleaning out hairs and other dried up blood/meat gunk from the gap between the handle scales and action is annoying as fuck. No such thing as a free lunch I guess.
