One last thread before all the snow melts and we go back to being coomers for 8 months.

Where's everyone finishing their season? I'm heading down to Monarch pass to ski backcountry this weekend, then down to Telluride the next weekend for resort/backcountry.

Have been seeing the Enforcer being shilled a lot in this past few years — seems I will have to try those next season will put them up there on my list. As far as reviews go the Kästles have a reputation of being more hard charging skis with not-playful shaping. I enjoy ski testing anyways so yeah can‘t wait to get to test at least the Nordicas!

Tomorrow's the last day of my mountain's season and I'm working. Snow has gone to shit recently so I'm not too bummed, but would've been nice to get one more full day in. At least I'll be able to get in a few runs on my breaks

>As far as reviews go the Kästles have a reputation of being more hard charging skis with not-playful shaping

I haven't skied dozens of pairs nor do I get paid by ski brands to promote their brand/call out inadequacies in others, but the Kastle BMX 105 is more playful than the Nordica Enforcer Free 104 imo.

For what it's worth, my daily driver 95% of the time inbounds is usually the Icelantic Nomads or the BMX, I feel comfortable hitting any terrain hard in either, but slightly prefer the nomads if there is fresh snow.

I've really liked my enforcer 93s. They aren't the most playful things ever. Rail turns better than the QSTs that I tried. Wish I had a wider waste for powder.

What goes on here /out/wise? (minus fishing obviously)

LOL quality post

Is there any possible way for me to make money off of livestock if I have a small lot of land out the back? Or would keeping livestock just be a money sink? I don’t mind either way as it’s a hobby I would like to pick up.

I was thinking something that can graze more easily off the land such as some sheep or a couple of goats. I have 0 experience with this and only a half acre of land, so if anyone could help me out with some advice or material that would be great.

Looks like you're gonna be limited to chickens, rabbits or mini goats.
>>
You’re not going to be able to run a profitable agriculture business on a half acre. If you’re trying to make some cash, your best bet these days would be agro-tourism. Get something popular, like llamas, and charge people to pet them, take photos with them, etc.

My friend has a fairly large acreage in the south of England that his family used for bovine farming for generations but it was bleeding cash so he converted it into a petting zoo and he’s making a profit for the first time in years. Makes an absolute killing renting some of his animals out for TV adverts, apparently, especially his pigs.
>>
>>2072171
Dont have experience with selling but if i was in your shoes i think getting a bunch of quail and selling eggs to fancy upscale restaurants would be your best bet.
Non livestock options would be selling things like herbs, microgreens, and mushrooms to these resturants.
>>
>>2072283
Try chickens or turkeys, you can have a couple of nigerian dwarf goats. The goats would be small enough to warrant being on a half acre.
Sheep wouldn't be a good option imo, because they need more space and you just don't want a couple. They don't really do well with just 2, and half an acre isn't enough for more than that. I would get chickens or turkeys though in that situation. Good luck!

Broke my Vive hitting some dead rotted oak branches. :(

They were $25 on Amazon but now they don't mention Anti-Shock, but a "not currently" Vive says Anti-Shock, so maybe changed.

Ordered these but....THEY ARE NOT ANTI-SHOCK, which means actual spring action in tip.https://www.amazon.com/XMmux-Aluminum-Trekking-Poles-Shock-Absorbent/dp/B07S48FVK9/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=xmmux+poles&qid=1617896499&s=sporting-goods&sr=1-1

WTF does no one on Amazon "get it"?

Can anyone recommend me some poles with Anti-Shock for under $100?

Hopefully longest they come in like 55" since they are most needed on the steep downhills and I'm 6-2 with heavy pack.

Got my old two fer $12.99 from Ebay that ARE anti-shock but handles are bit small and just hard plastic and they seem to bend and generally sorta cheap feeling, so willing to upgrade.
I guess I might need to go to local REI to check if they are actually Anti-Shock and pay $120-discount. WTF wont REI show me WTF the Reviews say? 3/5 ain't too high, but I guess Amazon inflates all their reviews. They wont let me post or ask questions, I guess from telling the truth one too many times.

just had full hip replacement plus I just like carrying heavy pack for LARP up and down steep CA rolling round hills, plus most trails are hard clay so spring just feels nicer and more fun.

I've re-discovered the entire "outdoor" retail sales staff are clueless.

about 4 years ago when I first started using poles I didn't even know about anti-shock and just by chance my first set, and 2nd set, of cheap poles were sprung.

Now that seems to have gone away and everyone is playing dumb.

Black Diamond seems to have good anti-shock system but they fucked up with some "slam lock" system that everyone says breaks so for $150 I'll pass.

Any tips for how to start looking? Obviously no one is giving out their secret spots, which is fair enough, but I'm not certain about the etiquette of if you stumble onto someone else's spot. Do you just leave?
>>
>>2074258
just start looking. try to learn the trees they're commonly connected to- elms, tulips, ash, etc. look around half dead/ recently dead trees. spots are first come first served. tho if you see someone clearly doing the same thing, move on to a different area. prepare for a lot of disappointment. to the point you'll think they're a myth.

by spinner you mean pic related?
different types need different speed to spin, you feel them spinning as a slight drag in your rod when you wind them in. pic related is a type that spin at slow speed, slow speed also means they go deeper and so on...i could give you my full autistic explanation of this but basicly make shure the spinner spins and not drag it along the bottom then you are on the right track

I actually fell for this meme. These milsurp mess kits are cool but that’s all they are, MESS KITS. They’re meant to have hot food poured in then, not to cook on. Cooking on aluminum will give you Alzheimer’s. If you’re using it for its intended purpose as a mess kit you’ll be fine. I suppose it would be alright for survival if you’re actually lost and your life depends on it to cook

i go out but i dont tru hike. i hike in mountain above my house once a week, i even go camping, few times per year. i dont survive outside and i never slept in woods more than 3 nights. I usualy sleep one or 2 nights. i dont do bushcraft i just take some of my friends borow them a tent and sleeping bag, and we make sandwiches and cook instant noodles and tea in the nature and swim in river or sea. Also my out is all about hiking or camping, i have never don long distance trip, usualy i find spot i like than i stay there and larp around. I hope i will go on 60km-100km hike soon so i can expetience that. also i go for walk in nature every day almost. but civilisation is never too much away. i am blessed with place i live i have sea, rivers and mountains sorounding me with 15-30 min drive i can be in mountains or river and i have 2 min walk to the beach. but if i lived in some big city i probably would not go in nature often as now. So depends i am not true hiker or survivalist i am just weekend camper and nature entusiast, nothing hard core. if i buy some more gear maby i could take more people out with me, usualy i need to borow my stuff to friends.

If you can put up with retard tourists and city niggers:
- New Forest (Has horses which is nice)
- North York moors
- Norfolk broads
- Brecon beacons
- Snowdonia

Anywhere in Scotland is good and they have the right to roam iirc, but I can't suggest places because I've only been to Scotland like twice and one time I was on a Narrowboat the whole time.

Just remember that Britain is ridiculously population dense so you're never going to get total isolation.

Is Appalachia a decent place to move to if you don’t care about the local job market and just need a decent internet connection? I’m debating buying a house in WV, KY, or TN. I’m also considering to look in the upper Midwest like SD,ND,MT. Is one region significantly different than the other besides the obvious geographical and weather factors?
