Ever since then I've had issues with dry skin and absolutely horrible itching that I just can't ignore when outdoors and doing stuff, generally goes away if I start sweating enough.
I don't know what to do about it.

Do you scrub your skin when you shower? I only scrub hard on my bunghole and pits, moisturize them after.that and putting a lid of my alcoholism stopped by weird itching/dryness. Make sure ya sunscreen everything.
>>
>>1277491
I hardly even use soap aside from on my hair and junk. Though I have tried loads of hard scrubbing and soap while in a sauna.
I've also tried a moisturizer, I don't really drink, and I haven't had a problem with sunburns for years, I pretty much always wear a thin shirt or something.
Nothing has worked thus far, supposedly it should pass after 10 or so years, I've had it for around 5 or 6.

im not trolling when i say this, but is living alone in a off the grid house as comfy as it sounds in the movies?

Yes and no.

You have to manage everything yourself, from the food you eat, through the water you shower in, to the pit you shit in. You have to set up a cabin, with proper insulation/heating and keep it in a good shape, that means sanding/surface treatment every year (assuming it's wood, but what else would it be), and basic repairs every month. You have to set up a homestead which is a handful in it's own. Keep your tools sharp and shiny. Maintain shelter for your animals. Keep goats/chikens (anything bigger is useless) for meat and dairy, they are also great for manure and getting rid of shrubbery. Find a way to get enough water for you, your plants and your animals. Plant, water and nourish enough plants that will be enough for you through the winter and keep your animals fed too. And these are just the basics.

Humans WANT to be busy by nature. It keeps us happy. But unfortunately slipping into a numb daily routine where we do jobs we hate to make enough paper to keep ourselves a bit over afloat is the universally accepted way to go. I say if you are cut out for it, then yes it is very comfy. Especially with a dog and a rifle. If you think you can work as hard as your grandparents did in their prime, then go. You will probably not regret it.

I'm planning on immigrating to Canada a few years from now. Maybe even further try to buy some land near a city/town and build a comfy modern architecture house. Nature-wise, what is the comfiest province to live in ?

BC is actually the worst place to live if you want to not be charged up the ying yang.

I would highly suggest Quebec or Ontario for nature. Can't beat the river and lake systems.

Isn't the cost of living in Quebec super high even by Canadian standards? Don't know much about them aside from the whole separatism thing.

>>
>>1273325
No, it is actually much cheaper. Especially utilities. The only possible issue is that you are under Quebec taxes. But they usually adjust your pay for that if you ask (assuming you work in Ontario perhaps).
>>
>>1272658
It depends on what you like. If you like the mountains Alberta and Bc are the obvious choices. Bc you can get into a nice little mountain town, but you will be taxed heavily and wages are so so. Alberta has lower taxes and higher wages, but you will only be in the foothills near the mountain not directly in the range.
Quebec is a beautiful example of the whole river and forest aesthetic, but rural Quebec is only a good place to live if you are French or from a former French colony. Otherwise you'll never really be accepted.
The territories are breathtaking but very harsh and it can be difficult to get a "real job" depending on your field.
The Maritimes are in my opinion strictly worse than costal Bc if you like sailing. Their economies are universally horrible.
Saskatchewan and Manitoba are mostly just a lower cost / lower quality Alberta or northern Ontario.
Northern Ontario is alright, but it will always get screwed politically by being attached to Toronto.
Overall, I would say Alberta and Bc are the obvious choices followed by the territories. Also on a personal note Toronto and Thunder Bay are by far the rudest and most unpleasant places I have ever visited in North America, Europe, or Asia. I would highly recommend avoiding them.

>>1276320
My question is are there jobs every season? I would think the industry since I've heard there are more people going into it and price per tree is decreasing. I've also heard the stories that the job puts a lot of stress on the body, your living conditions are shit, you may meet some characters who you think might murder you out there and the money may not seem worth it. Also been told that it's a nice job for a college student in some outdoor minded major to make money for the next semester.
>>
>>1277414
I believe fall is the best time to apply for next season's jobs. Rookie planters in Canada seem to mostly work in BC's interior and up north, Alberta, or northern Ontario. Coastal BC is for veteran planters only. Planting is definitely in the top five most physical jobs: you carry 40 lbs of tree saplings on your hips all day, walk on uneven terrain littered with tree debris, work in mosquito-infested areas and in the blazing sun or freezing cold rain, and dig holes using only one hand while your other hand holds the sapling you're about to plant. Planting attracts weirdos, people you'd see at a Rainbow Gathering. I think rookies make about 10 cents per tree, and BC pays the most. Saving money shouldn't be hard unless you're the party-type that indulges in alcohol and drugs. Most camps have cooks that make everything for everybody, and the meals are surprisingly high quality.

Or when the Mexican restaurant near you has to print in their menus:

The reason we call it a welded tuff rather than ash is because there is actually a distinction between the two.

ash deposits can produce vertebrate fossils. For example the bentonite mudstones of the Morrison Formation were made of ash from eruptions of volcanos in the Sierra Nevada during the Jurassic Nevadan Orogeny, and happen to contain huge numbers of plant and animal fossils including the dinosaurs its famous for.

Welded tuffs on the other hand don't contain vertebrate fossils because they were way too hot at the time of deposition.

so when I say ash is not known from La Garita, I mean very specifically that cool, wind-borne ash deposits are not known. The sorts of ash that preserve bones without burning them up.

>>1276256
Thank you based geology man
>>
>>1276256
Thank you, that is very helpful. I wonder why it didn't produce much cold, lightweight ash.
>>
>>1276636
It did, but that ash wasn't preserved. Most sediments on the planet don't wind up being rocks. They just get moved around for millions of years until they become something else.

or they become rocks and are then eroded away. Either way the cool ash deposits from the volcano didn't survive to modern times.

Hello /out/, first time posting here. I'm gonna start camping solo soon since I cannot get any friends to come with me and appreciate the cold and comfy nature.

I have an aluminium pot and pan, I was wondering what could be the best way to clean it while in the mountain and having no water source. I know soap is a big no, just wanted to know what you guys can recommend me.

Also, any advice for a first timer are more than welcome.
