"master gardener" is a volunteer thing afaik, at least in my state, you're not really supposed to call yourself a "master gardener" except when you're volunteering with your county extension office's "master gardener" program.

>>1314519
I'm growing just one hot pepper plant per season usually, that's enough for a non capsaicin junkie like me, just to spice things up a little here and there (dried and powdered), the rest are bell peppers. Can be used fresh for salads or filled with meat and cooked etc, but I also dry/powder those to enrich sauces, or coat chicken in etc

Hi, /out/.
This is my first time on this specific board, so I hope my post isn't horrible.
Anyway, I wanted to hear what some of you think about Vibram Fivefingers. Specifically, the Trek Ascent.
Thanks for stopping by.

There are things more gay than this. Like regularly taking cocks up the ass if you're a guy, or marching in a gay pride parade with rainbow colored assless chaps.

But no, seriously, wear 'em, hike in 'em. The rest of us need something to remind us that no matter how bad things get, we haven't devolved to the level of wearing glove foot meme shoes.
>>
I had a pair if trek sports like 9 years ago fucking loved them wore them all the time till i burned a hole in both the soles after 2-3 years best shoes I've ever owned

BUT barefoot isn't for everyone you can and will fuck up your feet/knees if you do not naturally walk with the ball of your foot or someshit I forget what the "style" is called also these technically not for running on pavement

oh also if you don't wear socks you will have to wash these things all the time because they will smell like an aids infected asshole

I was on a hike on the Florida Trail, met a guy five miles from the nearest trailhead hiking barefoot. I had stopped for a break, he nodded on the way past and asked if I minded a couple minutes of company. Turned out to be a cool dude. Turns out he hikes barefoot all over the East coast, but otherwise had normal gear like anyone else. Said he always ends up with blisters from shoes and socks no matter how many different ones he tries, so just decided years ago to ditch them and has done just fine. Haven't tried it myself, but I would before trying on some foot-glove gay ass abomination like these.

So I'm going camping tomorrow and rather than bring an underquilt I'm bringing a second hammock and an exceptionally cheap sleeping bag that I plan to hang immediately below my hammock and my actual sleeping bag.

Seems like a bulky version of a Luci light. Check them out when you're ready to upgrade, they are very nice... I use them in all my setups. The one in the picture is the Luci Candle I think, it's got that orange, candle light hue to it and there's a cute setting that has it flicker like one too. They've got all sorts, my favorite is the Lux.

>>1314423
Sounds silly. It could work in theory but you're going to have to put in a ton of work to make sure you're both not compressing the down AND having the bag right up against you. Summer time is the best time to test these sorta things out though, worst that could happen is you have a chilly night.

I know I’m a wimp but it seems like I never sleep well in a tent and by morning I’m pretty much ready to go home and sleep.

Im like you, at first I couldnt sleep well, but I "replicate" de outdoors sleeping in my house, so i Know what i was getting wrong, first of all, I needed a pillow, so I purchase a inflable pillow, next I figured I usually sleep naked, but I cant sleep naked while out, so, i just take my underwear out while im sleeping out, now I sleep like a baby

I bought a no-tool quick inflatable mattress. It made sleeping 100% better, pads are awful and take up more room than the mattress I bought.

I have a hammy down food dehydrator I got from my aunt this week.
I am going to dry all the food I need for my summers /out/ activities.
Boneless Chuck steaks are on sale for 2.99 per pound. Will this make good jerky?

Also please share any and all tips for this unit.

Is it a good idea to make jerky with smoker and dehydrator?
I only have acess to mesquite good, and it leaves such strong smoke flavor after 12 hours smoking the meat. So i was thinking to smoke the meat like 4-5 hours and then put it in a dehydrator

It'll work. I'd probably smoke it last. But either way it'd work.

Pemmican is like 45% fat. That shit lasts forever
>>
>>1313903
well yeah, many parts of food don't spoil if at high concentration. but they will spoil when low or mixed.
High sugar. alcohol, fat, acid, salt, spices, oils they all can be used to preserve stuff.

just wine its will grow yeast while below ~12% but once above it will stop.

so the conclusion that if pemmican might last, so will the lower fat of jerky will too is wrong. also, pemmican is traditionally stored sealed. because otherwise its hard to avoid the same problem of Rancidity, that is the complete or incomplete oxidation or hydrolysis of fats and oils when exposed to air, light, moisture or by bacterial action, resulting in unpleasant taste and odour.

still great stuff though

I'm in a bit of a downer period at the moment, and thinking up ways of existing away from everything and everyone is how I'm coping. I, theoretically, have years to learn how to camp, hunt, the ins and outs of safe travel, and all that good stuff. Hell, I'm not even thinking of ending up homeless, as buying a patch of land miles from anywhere (maybe with a well) and sticking a tent down before building a hut is a possibilty.

My biggest concern is rest. Every time I've ever been camping i've been uncomfortable as hell. Now, it was most likely inexperiance and youth, my standards for comfort have lowered in recent decades (I spent over a year living on a half-worn-through futon on a hardstone floor years back), but the one thing I really appreciate in life is climbing into warm sheets on a soft surface and going to sleep.

Can we have a thread exploring the ins and outs of sleeping/resting gear, maintaining it, keeping it dry/drying it out and the frequency of doing so, ect? How different weather has an effect (Northern Scotland is my ideal, as there is fuckign no-one in sections of it, but tis rainy, damp as fuck, and cold much of the year)?

Rented by the parent I care for, with no rights to keep doing so after/if she passes. I would be out the door within two weeks. Thankfully I have family and friends I can bunk with in the short term while I pick and buy the land.

Having looked into tents and how damp they can get inside, and spent the night reading most of /out/, making drying them in winter a problem, I'd most likely actually build a big ass shed with a concrete base instead of a hut, insulate the walls, and call it a day. That way I can have an actual bed and fasten up a battery to an inverter for a heater and to charge my phone/tab.
>>
>>1313347
Why charge a phone in a place w/o cell service or WiFi?
>>
>>1313439
In theory most places do have some signal. Then again, maybe Scotland/Ireland have more black spots than I'm used to. But if you can get a signal at the least you can have a contract with data. Plus, kindle, music, ect.
>>
>>1313466
I don’t think you’ve been out remotely, I go an hour east from a major city, and the mountains have no coverage. The deserts have massive dead spots, the real word has more dead spots than coverage areas despite what cell providers commercials would have you believe
>>
>>1314186
I think we might be talking about different countries with vastly different distances between locations. For a start of I would need to travel probably a thousand or more miles to reach anything resembling a desert or a mountain. I'm in the UK, and in Scotland you can pretty much 'camp' where or whenever you want, as long as you want, as long as you don't do something retarded like camp on a village green. A lot of the land in Scotland and Ireland is extremely cheap because it's a decent drive from anything resembling a supermarket/big store, usually has no power lines for miles, no sewage or water pipes. Literally a chunk of land, a run down/ruined cottage that hasn't been changed since it was built in the ~1800s, and hopefully (it will be a requirment for me) a well for water.

However, most of the UK, Scotland, or Ireland has mobile phone coverage, due to tower placement. It would be something I'd look into, as the internet is one thing I really want to have access to, even if I can't get tv or a phone landline. If I have to I'll compromise what I buy to make sure I'm in the vicinity of a tower.

Plus, this is plans for the future, hopefully a decade or more away. I'm hoping there will be at least some improvements in a lot of these things before then.

That would not be possible, considering the stainless not only has half the carbon content, but much of it is bound with the chromium.

Not him, but have done the same. The german army victorinox knife has a high-quality saw on it that can take up to 4 inches of greeen wood. If you saw from both ends, that's enough for taking down a 9 inch tree. It's a great backup if you need to take down a tree that has to much deadwood in it to use the hatchet and you don't want to wlak back to camp to get a proper saw.

>stainless not only has half the carbon content, but much of it is bound with the chromium
dude
>Carbon steel and stainless steel have the same basic ingredients of iron and carbon. Their main difference is alloy content—carbon steel has under 10.5 percent alloy content, while stainless steel must contain 10.5 percent chromium or more. That essential difference is what gives carbon steel and stainless steel their distinct physical characteristics.
carbon content is roughly the same between steels stainless steels go up to 1.2% easily while high carbon steels start at 0.3%.
you would be closest to the truth in that stainless generally have a higher chromium content.

Have fun when its VG10(which is a great kitchen knife steel) chips. All the low end VG10 falknivens chip, because VG10 was designed to cut fish, in sushi kitchens.
