Is cotten rotten?

I'm /out/ working every day and my layers include two cotton teeshirts on top of my merino.

Fuck you guys lol.

Isn't the whole idea not to sweat in the first place? Cotton just makes it worse but it's not like sweating in synthetics is going to be fine, sweating under any clothing in cold conditions is bad.

So the real advice is to bring a spare shirt in case you do sweat. I'd rather have a fresh and dry gotten shirt then just wear the same synthetic shirt the whole time.
>>
>>1155089

Why would I do that? Nobody mentioned it anywhere?

Nobody said anything other than that cotton is bad across the board.

Why don't you take your wool and synthetic layering system, wear it while doing some strenuous physical activity during a hot humid summer then get back to us?

Do you see where I am going with this?
>>
>>1155172
Why would I do that? I don't wear synthetic, I only wear wool and cotton. Usually when people on this board talk about cotton in a negative way, it is because if you are going to be /out/ for longer than a day in cold climates it really is rotten.
Do you see where I am going with this?

Has anyone here ever been /out/ing in the Adirondacks? I only live about 30 minutes away and want to start going there regularly. Where are some good spots to hike/ camp?
>>
>>1155731
Yes. I hiked Makenzie mountain right by lake placid. Beautiful lake halfway up. Also Iroquois and Algonquin is a good hike. Gothics is cool. Old forge area is nice too.

Anyone wear trail runners while backpacking? How do they compare to boots?

Post your fungal finds and questions here.

I want to start foraging for wild mushrooms. I live in Asheville, which is a mycological paradise this time of year and I just got an Audubon field guide for mushrooms.

I found a bunch of these little boletes growing under some pines where I work. I'm 95% sure they're Dotted Stalk Suillus, which are supposed to be good to eat. Is it worth trying to harvest and cook them? Have you tried these particular shrooms?

>$200 for a gun and ammo
>Cheap flashlights

Flashlights are like wine bottles. You get the most bang for your buck on medium prices. Medium in median terms. A one dollar flashlight is gonna shit the bed when you need it (fixing something on your car at night in the middle of nowhere). A 100 dollar flashlight is gonna burn through [hella expensive] batteries and have enough lumens to be used as a Maritime lighthouse. A 10 dollar flashlight will last a good amount of time and be fairly reliable.

This June I'm beginning the AT south bound, and these are the only things I haven't bought:
>tent and footprint
>boots
I need boots because ~$250 that will last the whole trail is better than ~$100 I'll have to replace 4 times

I've never done anything like this before and I know this is lazy but I'm stumped, can I get some recommendations on these? Preferably the tent
>>
>>1155511
For a one person tent, get something under 4lb.

For boots, it is impossible to recommend to someone with no experience. We know nothing about your preferences from boot->shoe, your weight/fitness/BMI/agility, anticipated carrying loads, etc. This is a way more personal choice as people go all the way from high top full leather boots with rigid soles, to minimal barefoot shoes.

>is it feasible to hunt wild boar in the US using a bolt action rifle?
I'm asking because I don't own any semi auto rifles, or bows, and I am certain that 270 ammo is powerful enough to kill a pig.
>Is there a liability involved in using a bolt action rifle in the South?
I've honestly never spent much time in the south so I don't know the terrain very well.

First off there are atleast 2 hunting threads already. Secondly this post leaves so many unanswered questions I do not know where yo start.

You did this long-winded monologue for your own edification. Don't even pretend. You didn't even come close to answering my question. You gibbered on about what YOU wanted to be heard.
>>
>>1155936

Yes I did answer your question, had it not been so fucking retarded in the first place with no info given as to where you are located or what foods you have stored and don't need to grow, I could have saved me the time to go into that. But it's obvious you have not made these considerations or don't feel the need to share these information with us here so we can help you out. You are more interested in shitting this board up with your faggotry and calling those giving you information names. Whatever dude, just starve please.

If it doesn't get into your head why you need to know what you need to eat and what your environment provides in terms of ground, water, light, climate, etc. and what plant provides which nutrients before you plan what to grow, then no one can fucking help you.
>>
>>1155942
No you didn't. You just listed every vegetable plant you could think of. Now go away, you fucking narcissist.
>>
>>1155943

Did you read what I wrote?

1. you didn't tell us where you are located, plants need certain temperature, water levels and ground types, without knowing what you can provide to the plants in these regards we can only speculate
2. we don't know what foods you have in storage (my guess is nothing at all and I don't even want to help you change this anymore, just fucking die already)
3. we can't make a good plan for you where to grow what in what amounts, since we have no access to any schematic showing your available land, ground types, pH levels, possible issues with industry or wind, etc.

You give nothing but a stupid over generalized question and expect valid answers. You have never seen a university from inside and if you have shame on your countries academia to allow fuckwits like you to occupy a spot someone else could have used.

I gave you fucking options since there is no blanket answer and went more into detail with every post after that, but you refuse to read and comprehend, instead bitching like the little wimp you are.
>>
>>1155943

Also failing at psychology by the way, a narcissist would not be out to help you with your shit, as he doesn't care for others except what he can gain from it. If you seriously think there's something to gain from this board besides information (which you so profoundly refuse), then I don't know what life you live in. Just because someone get's fucking pissed at you talking shit to them when they are trying to help you doesn't make that person a narcissist.

I've had it with you, I'm literally /out/ because I got shit to do and don't see a reason to help you any further.

They are germinated do you want them to open? Because that would be fire. Not kidding that's why pine forests get prescribed burns every few years.
>>
>>1153841
Every scale had a seed on top. After the cone opens up most of the seeds fall out. Look inside for any of the little, winged seeds that might still be there. Stick them in dirt & water
>>
>>1153841
Those pine cones are already open.
Do they still have the seeds? Or have the seeds dropped?
I would start with a closed pine cone.
Some seeds require a cold dormant period before they will germinate
I collect acorns in the fall, put them in a ziplock bag with soil in the garage where it’s cold. Most will germinate in the spring.
>>
>>1154824
Not fire, just heat.
If the pine cones are closed any heat 80 to 100 degrees F with make them open.

Fan of Corcoran boots, looking for full leather boot with these specifications.

-Rubber soles, not a fan of original leathers.
-Connected tongue, would like to be able to stand in water up to the top of the boot and not get drenched
-fuck zippers

-no insulation, using wool inserts

Planning to use them for cold weather hiking and survival.
I couldn't find a Corcoran without a zipper or disconnected tongue.

Experience plant veteran here. Saw incredibly beautiful parts of Canada all of my 6 first seasons. Ontario is the worst fucking place to plant by far. When I was working there, I was hauling .09 cent trees. Fuck that.

Once you get good, and get in with other bush jobs/networks, you get to some great places up the BC coast/interior, and you're accommodations arent tents anymore, but resorts and logging cabins. $300 after camp cost is a bad day for me. I'll be at it well into my 30s.
