I wore a Rothco reproduction Vietnam-era army watch. The windup version. It was pretty kino, lasted through three years in food service and five years in construction before I ditched it for another watch. The crystal is all scratched up and the band needs replacing, but it still runs just fine. Cost me $50.

Now I wear a Luminox special forces-issue watch. Fiberglass body, tritium vials, and a calendar. You don't need anything else. $300.

Soviet Power also sells some cool vintage-style wristwatches, but most are modern reproductions. They won't break the bank, they work fine, and they have some cool designs that will appeal to your autism/LARPing tendencies.

Also, check the catalogue next time.

>The Story of the Yokohama Boy Scout Memorial

>According to the story—a summary of which appears (only in Japanese) at the memorial site—the American soldier was wounded and in and out of consciousness when a Japanese soldier came upon him. The American awoke with a bayonet at his throat and believed he would be killed. As he passed out, he gave the Boy Scout salute of three fingers.

>Seeing this, the Japanese soldier lowered his bayonet and instead took out his first aid kit and bandaged the enemy’s wound. He also scribbled a note in passable English and left it with the American.

>When the American awoke, the Japanese soldier was gone. He saw the piece of paper and put it in his pocket. Shortly after that, he was rescued by friendly medical personnel and taken to a field hospital where he was saved. Later, he asked the staff for the note and read it.

>“As I was about to stab you, you saluted me with the Boy Scout sign. I also was a Boy Scout. Boy Scouts are brothers. You are my brother. It is forbidden to kill anyone who no longer can fight. I applied a bandage to your wound. Good luck.”

Yeah, bro. Brimmed hats that have been used for literal centuries on hunts are bad. If you're bobbing your head like a fucking chicken when you walk and it's causing you to spook game, you have bigger issues than what type of hat you wear.

Still birdless bro. It’s one of the worst dry spells I’ve ever had. Only hit a couple fields this morning but Hanks probably done 100 miles now and nothing. I don’t understand it. We escaped the drought. Have only seen one other hunter the entire time. Ive hit three of my most absolute sure fire spots and plenty of good habitat. It’s fucking rough out here Bros. Comfy bird dog pic for my sanity.

Horses for courses Anon. Personally I’m partial towards classic Remingtons and newer Brownings. I won’t take another expensive gun on the water ever again. Lost an A5 Wickedwing in a reservoir a few years ago in an unironic boating accident. That said retro Remington 1100s, A5s, and break opens like Parker’s, Fox Sterlingworth, and Lefever are peak aesthetic for upland hunting. I have an 1100 myself for upland and field hunting geese. I have an 870 for the marshes. Frankly for the price of an old double gun like that you can get a brand new Citori or a Benelli SA. All that said my “loaner” Charles Daly Walmart special has killed as many birds in the last 20 years as any of my other guns without issue.

I've been getting more interested in missing persons cases. After a friend told me a strange story of his sister going missing for a short period of time in the woods, I started looking into the Missing 411 stuff. I recently moved to Utah and was wondering if anyone knows any interesting cases near North Utah?

I'm willing to drive and post what I see.

Has anyone here lived the "reservation life"? I saw a post somewhere about some dude getting tired of current society and marrying into tribal culture. What does that even mean? What is living on a reservation like? From everything I've heard it's just a bunch of depressed people on drugs and alcohol, but that post piqued my interest. Reservations are on beautiful land, and if I could help out a group of people by working the land I'd love to. How do reservations work?

Spent hundreds of years systematically ripping off the interior tribes in trade to such a degree that when first visited by Europeans they managed to outjew every trader sent to do business with them .

>One famous shame pole is the Seward Pole at the Saxman Totem Park in Saxman, Alaska. It was created to shame former U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward for not reciprocating the courtesy or generosity of his Tlingit hosts following a potlatch given in his honor. The intent of this pole is indicated by the figure's red-painted nose and ears to symbolize Seward's stinginess.[43][44]
>In 1942, the U.S. Forest Service commissioned a pole to commemorate Alexander Baranof, the Russian governor and Russian American Company manager, as a civilian works project. The pole's original intent was to commemorate a peace treaty between the Russians and Tlingits that the governor helped broker in 1805. George Benson, a Sitka carver and craftsman, created the original design. The completed version originally stood in Totem Square in downtown Sitka, Alaska.[47][48] When Benson and other Sitka carvers were not available to do the work, the U.S. Forest Service had CCC workers carve the pole in Wrangell, Alaska. Because Sitka and Wrangell native groups were rivals, it has been argued that the Wrangell carvers may have altered Benson's original design.[48][49] For unknown reasons, the Wrangell carvers depicted the Baranov figure without clothes.[50]

Hello, I'm a Japanese tumblr geek!
This is my first time using 4chan, so please don't hesitate to point out if I've done something wrong.
I want to buy tumblers cheaply in English-speaking countries, but I don't have the skills to Google in English, so I decided to post on 4chan.
I'd like to buy a yeti 10oz, lid, handle, etc. at a reasonable price. (I missed the REI sale this summer)
There are few ways to buy them in Japan, especially the handles.
I was even thinking of making my own with a 3D printer.
The attraction of 10oz is that they sell handles, lids and lids with straws.
The handles for 20oz are equally attractive (16oz, 20oz, and 30oz are also the coolest).
I know that AliExpress sells similar products.
However, I'm afraid that the metal in my mouth is made in China (it might be the best buy, at least for the handles).
I hope you can help me.
This article is written by DEEPL.
If you think reddit is the right place to write about these topics, please let me know.

On an unrelated note, the coleman tumblers at Costco in the US are cheap but in great shape. I wish they would sell them in Japan.

I'm buying snow shoes and I've never owned a pair before, what do I need to look for? Is there a certain brand or type of snow shoes that is especially good? Are poles necessary?
I'm planning to do some trips this winter in the foothills of the Alps, at around 1000-2000m elevation, so nothing too crazy.
Would appreciate any advice.

Invest in a nice pair 250$+ especially if youre going into the mtns. I tried to make due with a 170$ pair for work (Yukon Charlies NPS) and they fell off a dozen times within a few hours of my first time wearing them. I was absolutely disgusted in them. First time buying snowshoes so I didnt know what was up. The straps slipped loose instantly.
