You might think about adding peat moss or coco coir to make it lighter if you have it on hand.

Yessum my banana's fruiting

Why is mountaineering so expensive, /out/? I just want to climb mountains without having to work three plus years at some shit job just to pay for one expedition.
>>
>>1211733
To climb mountain next to me, Mt Hood, all thats required is some good boots, an ice axe and a good jacket in addition to your normal mountain hiking stuff.

Other mountains like the Sisters or some in the Tetons are the same.

But if you want to fly across the world and follow a sherpa up Kilimanjaro then yes, itll be very expensive.
>>
>>1211736
Pretty much this. A good day peak/scramble setup will cost you less than $1k if you know how and where to shop.
>>
>>1211733
You are picking the wrong mountains. As the other two said there is a lot of climbing all over the place that is practically free. In fact while you are gaining experience you don't want to go up the complicated shit that costs a lot of money, logistics and gear so it's a moot point anyway.
>>
>>1211733
Go to NOLS and get your guide cert. Then you'll get paid to climb mountains.

Why does all the focus here resolve around growing all your own food 100%?. Food is hella cheap already and if you have no income you get food stamps. It's such a tiny expense (6%)that if you can't afford it you can't afford your iPhones either so you won't do it anyway so fuck off It's like an argument that someone would use who doesn't want you to homestead because then they don't profit from you.

More productive discussion could focus on building a cabin or she'd or unconventional incomes by crafting or animal husbandry or specialty crops instead of imaginary cockblocks

farming is a vital skill and was necessary for a family's survival up until the 1960s
it only takes three generations to forget a skill and become dependent on those with the remaining knowledge, thus homesteading/sustainable living revolves around re-gaining and strengthening what was once common knowledge and practice, anon

Hi /out/
What should I get for my first sleeping bag? I want something 3-season, and as affordable as possible. Doesn't need to be ultra-light, but i guess smaller is better

>>1211718
Go somewhere else for advice. I'm going to bed or I'd help you more but you need to figure out a few things.

1. Are you carrying it on your back? (then it needs to be light and small)
2. If you really want 3-season how much do you care about water resistance?

• If you don't care about weight and you need water resistance then you want a synthetic, if you do care about weight and you can keep yourself dry then you want down.
• Down is expensive, Montbell and REI are good value, some Marmot is too. Western Mountaineering, and Feathered Friends are best tier but expensive.

marmot trestles, in whatever temp is appropriate for where and when you'll be using it. i used a 15 i found on sale for about $70 until i got sick of the bulk and upgraded to down, but i still have it as a loaner bag.
>>
Whatever Aegismax model fits the temp you need for the sleeping bag. Just remeber to NEVER get a down sleeping bag wet.
The Therm-a-Rest Z Lite for the pad.
Also grab a 20D silnylon dry sack that fits your set of sleeping clothes plug the bag itself.

Cheap as fuck, about as light as you can get and it is real, quality equipment I would have no problem taking on long/difficult hikes.

No sense in getting anything else really. Drop the price a little and you get shit polyester stuff, higher price only gets you a couple grams less weight.

If the Northeast /out/ists are wanting to have a meetup, why not those in the eastern side of Dixie?

There are plenty of places to go, Cherokee is nice in the summer, plus there are no requirements other than camping away from streams, unlike the smokies where you have to have permits and stay in predetermined cabins.

Thoughts?

It would help to know which geographic region you are in. If you are in America I would recommend a Sibley's guide for whichever part of the country you will be. Check ebird for birding hotspots in your region and go visit the ones close to you.

The best piece of advice I got for when you want to go look at birds is "don't look for birds". Don't look for anything. Just go out and bask in the nature. Don't focus your eyes, just look passed the branches and trees and stare as if into nothing. Let your eyes just be and wait for them to detect movement. Then you can key in on something and see if it's a bird. If you go out and just scan every branch in detail looking for a bird your field of vision is drastically reduced because you are too focused. Just staring ahead will let you use all of your peripheral vision instead. It is amazing how many more birds you will detect this way. Of course listen too, and if you hear something you can focus on that general area and wait for something to move.

And like the other guy said, eBird is great. It is worldwide so check hotspots and familiarize yourself with what birds you should be prepared to see so when you get there you are not fumbling through your guide and missing the bird.

As the other anon said you can carry loaded firearms in the woods as long as they aren't "restricted" which includes all pistols/revolvers and some rifles.

A PAL license is required though to buy/possess firearms and to buy ammunition. I'm not exactly sure how difficult it is for non-residents to get one.

It may look uncomfortable but it is ok and if you don´t unfold it, it is also a great seat for the evening at the campfire.

It is what German soldiers actually use and it works quite well, even in cold winter nights. And it really is low budget. You can purchase a new one for about 19 EUR and a used one starting from 6 EUR (talking about the original, not the Chinese copy).

I do astronomy and astrophotography. Recently moved and haven't had access to dark skies for a month or so though. Here's a pic of one of my setups.

Some of the stories in this thread reminded me of this:

"For most of us, knowledge of our world comes largely through sight, yet we look about with such unseeing eyes that we are partially blind. One way to open your eyes to unnoticed beauty is to ask yourself, "What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?"
I remember a summer night when such a thought came to me strongly. It was a clear night without a moon. With a friend, I went out on a flat headland that is almost a tiny island, being all but surrounded by the waters of the bay. There the horizons are remote and distant rims on the edge of space. We lay and looked up at the sky and the millions of stars that blazed in darkness.... I have never seen them more beautiful: the misty river of the Milky Way flowing across the sky, the patterns of the constellations standing out bright and clear, a blazing planet low on the horizon. Once or twice a meteor burned its way into the earth's atmosphere.
It occurred to me that if this were a sight that could be seen only once in a century or even once in a human generation, this little headland would be thronged with spectators. But it can be seen many scores of nights in any year, and so the lights burned in the cottages and the inhabitants probably gave not a thought to the beauty overhead; and because they could see it almost any night perhaps they never will."

I'm a 20year old student and a passionate tobacco smoker. Started from regular cigarettes, trough rolling tobacco and a few months ago started smoking pipe tobacco. I've been only smoking in the privacy of my home or with close friends, but avoided smoking in public places. I don't want to be the hipster who begs for attention so he does weird stuff in pubic, I just genuinely like smoking pipe tobacco.

Is pipe smoking just another excuse for hipsters to seek attention or does it look discrete/normal if someone does it in a pub ?

>>
>>1211550
I've never smoked a pipe, but it seems to be very different from cigs. There's more equipment, takes longer to prepare, and takes longer to smoke. So I'm not sure where in public you would be intending to smoke. You wouldn't be taking a 5 minute smoke break at work. You wouldn't be smoking in the car. Even bars that allow smoking sometimes don't allow pipes or cigars, because the smoke is so much more thick and pungent. I could see doing it on a restaurant patio maybe. Or as anon above said, in a park. I think it'd be great for outdoors or camping, but I'm not sure what you mean by "is there a place for it".
