Anyone else getting really annoyed by people stacking rocks in wild places? Understand "roaming owl" is just expressing his spiritual connections to nature, but the fuck do you have to alter the natural state of the wild because you think it's edgy. Fucking knock it off.

How is that so different from your mom's basement?
It can mess with breeding cycles of fish if the stones are taken out of the rivers. Its also where things like crayfish live.

I'll back that up as I have a friend or two in the same position. It's strange because I feel like it largely is used for hookups, but sometimes people just sort of make a meaningful connection that way.

Is there a breed of Rooster thats so aggressive it can fight off small mammals?
Im raising chickens and theres a racoon or something breaking into the pin every other week and kills a hen or a few chicks.
And my cock is such a fucking pussy he just lets it happen. I really hope there is maybe a breed i dont know about yet that can fuck up animals like coons and foxes pls help

Breed: American Game
However, make sure of a couple things, first, you have enough chickens. If you have around 10 you should be fine with having a rooster. Also, chickens can't see at night, so you'll want to get some kind of sensor light near your coop.
Donkeys are supposedly really good at protecting chickens. No, really.
That's gay

looks like someone needs my help i see

Where did you think the sweat was gonna go? It's a sock, not a portal to the shadow dimension. Important thing is that your feet are still warm

I bought my first wool shirt last week I haven't gotten to go /out/ in it yet, but I just sat outside and drank a beer the other night in the cold to try it out. I'm not sure it's worth the $130 I paid for it over one of my $20 Moose creek flannels I got on sale last year, but it definitely looks better
I got smartwool for 5 bucks a pair, bought 10 ,at Sam's club last year. wasn't losing that steal even if they aren't as good

I can't imagine sharing a tent with any of you stank ass fuckers. And just because you've gotten used to the smell of your own funk doesn't mean you don't stink.
im too far gone, ive started to like the stink
>once a week or less

This explains blacks, a lot.
You won't stink just because you don't use soap retard.
soap only covers up stink, washing with water and drinking plenty of water will make you smell like water.

Ski touring
Was a bit mushy, not as cold as a freezer
Hi, I want to get into XC skiing since I moved to a country that has actual snow, and plenty of it.

Should I learn traditional or skate skiing? And should I get a teacher or just rent/buy some stuff and figure it out and copy other people?
when you imagine yourself riding a bike are you chilling on a hybrid in normal clothing or are you a spandex hyper tech guy?
I ride MTB with with bike clothes in summer and my workclothes for commute.
i guess you gotta learn both.

Anyone wear trail runners while backpacking? How do they compare to boots?
57 replies and 13 images omitted. Click here to view.
Thank you anon, as a minimalist runner it makes me angry seeing people running in these monstrosities thinking it is good for them
Why does the weather have such variation there?
for long distance, the heel in shoes is conducive to a marching step, and protects the ankle from exertion. classic shoe technology is surely born from military, as only a well-heeled sole allows one to march over distance, with weight, at speed

i prefer minimalism as well, but your points that promote minimalism, dont necessarily debunk boots, when it comes to ankle protection. you might decrease chance of eventful injury, but over distance and time, boots are built to protect the joint

i believe it ultimately depends on the walking method. i move lithely, and buy running shoes accordingly, but have also marched. when marching, one creates a respect for the boot and its design
Continental, far from moderating large water bodies I guess

What's the point? Can you name one meaningful advantage to wearing this that justifies its price and the hassle of keeping it charged, without just listing its features? Are you the sort of person that buys those "google home" always-on microphones and "internet connected coffee machines" and shit? Does your fridge have a 21.5 inch screen for playing angry birds?
not OP but ive hooked up most of my home through alexa. having a "smart" home is like having an IPod in the early 2000's. before you have one you didnt think you would ever need but once you get it you cant imagine how you life without it. i can say "alexa set the dining room to tropical sunset" and all of sudden some lights turn a a pinkish hue and others turn a light blue. or "alexa i want to read" and my reading light turns white while the others dim. i have it set so when my phone comes back within a certain distances my heat turns up and the lights turn on to 50 percent in the rooms i walk through. then ill say alexa tell me today news and i get an 10 NPR news brief. in the morning instaead of a sound alarm the light in my bedroom slowing turns up gold light red and blue to match the sunrise and i get a weather report. Plus having all the smart tech has really dropped my electric bill which is nice. if i'm lucky enough to have a boat house or ski house ill definitely smart wire it. it would be nice to be able to control the heat when im away and keep pipes from bursting.
I'm not disparaging smart home shit categorically. Some of what you described sounds pretty fun and I'd like to at least have blinds that open in the morning and close at night. But the idea of selling your privacy over to Amazon to save three seconds to walk over to a light switch or whip a phone out and tap a widget doesn't sit well with me, and you have to admit there's a trend toward inserting gadgetry where there's no real call for it, giving you more of a parlor trick/in-home tech demo than a legitimately upgraded product
>selling your privacy

its worse than that. your buying the opportunity to give your privacy. i think on a subconscious level i don't really care about those gadgets for the same reason i love going out. its the inverse of the precautions, appearance, and formality shit i have to deal with work. when im not at work i just want to be able to let go and let the tide carry me where i want to be.

Eat a normal, healthy diet and you get all the iodine you need from other sources. Other than that, sea salt and table salt have the same nutritional value.
