Outdoorlab raves about them and they're still on sale at backcountry. What's the sizing like? I usually wear a 30 length since a 32 in some of these pants has the leg nearly touching the floor but sometimes it also rides a little high at 30

$67 ain't too shabby though, could do without the leg pocket but beggars can't be choosers

>What's the sizing like?
Correct. I wear a 32 in everything and they’re a 32. Sounds like you need a 32 and need to learn how to hem pants down to a 31

Its a pretty good organization due to most of their funding going to maintenance of major use areas they'll mostly leave you alone if you are camping in a dispersed camping spot. I go the their office every once and awhile to get updates on trails (as well as stopping by fish&game because they'll tell me where to avoid or where to go 4 the best fishing spots).
Try and avoid the women that work there because they only know major trails and camping spots as well as hassling you saying all advisories are laws

It's illegal to make hiring decisions off of race or disability:
>An agency official shall not discriminate against an employee or applicant based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability (or handicapping condition), marital status, or political affiliation. 5 U.S.C. § 2302(b)(1)

It would be illegal for them to give you extra points because you're a minority, hence why nobody who makes hiring decisions actually sees your information. They get your name, your resume, and your survey questions, and can see your previous SF 50s. The only bump you get is if you're a veteran candidate.

For a good background on phylogenetics, check out Zimmer and Emlen's Evolution - Making Sense of Life.

For earth science in general, I recommend Hamblin and Christiansen's Earth's Dynamical Systems. This book very clearly explains rocks, clays and soils from a geophysical and chemical perspective.

As for Youtube, check out Nick Zentner, a professor at Central Washington University who has a lot of great and accessible videos on applied geology.

Do you mean southerner? I’m from the Carolinas and I agree, we use them back home for a variety of reasons. That being said you can take them on day hikes easily.

>>1776571
Yea the divide often serves as just that anon. A divide. In all seriousness cowboys in their traditional sense haven’t been around for decades. Sure you have your cow poke life style which is honest and hard as nails for sure, but my point is that people seem to obsess over wearing boots as a privilege for those who live out on the range chasing Billy the Kid. Just admit they’re a functional work boot that works better for some and worse for others

Seriously, fuck cows. I like beef, sure, but it’s about time we quit letting ranchers use public lands to graze. So many pristine hiking areas ruined by those fuckers. My grandfather grazed here my ass, I don’t care. And yes I would quit eating beef if it meant saving my trail. Without a second thought, chicken and fish are healthier anyways. I just know it isn’t going to do fuck all if I quit eating meat, so don’t make that retarded argument.

They want it both ways; public land for everyone to share, but private land for just them. I’ve posted before about how barbed wire ruined the proto-every man’s right ideal in the US and paved the way for no trespassing laws on undeveloped land.

farmers and ranchers don't want predators around because they kill livestock which costs money. even if it's only a few animals a year it's still a loss of revenue.
it's quite surprising there are any predators in the lower 48 states and southern canada at all since farming is so prevalent. of course the animals deserve better treatment, but until people are willing to lose money over it i don't see much hope.
the red wolf is a great case study in why changing attitudes towards animals is the most important part of reintroduction.

Get climbing shoes.
It is hard to tell from a still picture, but in my experience, most beginners waste too much energy on upper body to climb up the wall. Rather you should focus on using your legs to drive you up, and keep your hips as close to the wall as possible to reduce the stress your hands have to hold, obviously this isn't possible in every situation, but is good general advice.
