I’m in the UK, Cornwall. What kind of fish abunds and what gear? Is a 3mm wetsuit and 100cm barrel right for general use?

I don't know much about that board so I don't know what you mean.
The spear (clue is in the name) actually travels pretty far on land, a good 10m of damage at least. It’s the water that slows it down and requires such a long barrel and length. The British police confiscate sporks and bike pumps as dangerous weapons, and there’s currently a bloke in prison in Scotland for being caught in the woods camping with a pocketknife in his bag.

But then again, Cornwall doesn’t have any pakis or wogs (a huge amount of immigrants come from places where conflicts are resolved with machetes, the whole reason You Need A Loicense White Citizen) so the police don’t have to worry about being racist cuckolds so they’re a lot more decent there from the couple times I’ve visited

Still wouldn’t risk carrying anything dodgy looking. Put your gun in a pvc tube Op
>implying that authoritarian island hell's policies are dictated by logic and not blatant power grabs spurred by fear mongering
You know what, Cornholer, I'm sorry for getting political. Domesticity pisses me off and I see it as a threat to our hobbies, but this is /out/ and you just wanna shoot some fuckin fish. So just ignore all this shit:

How in the fuck do we deal with extreme humidity when out, boys? I'll take heat, I'll take cold, I'll take storms, but humidity really takes the wind out of my sails when it comes to being /out/. If I have to work outside in the humidity, fine, I'll suck it up, but recreationally hiking and camping and what have you in the humidity really drains my motivation. Really just venting here because this shit has been going on for two months and this has been the worst year for humidity on record in ages.

About to purchase 15 acres of land. Has water, sewage, and electric hookups. About 11 acres are cleared pasture where the current owner uses for making hay bales. The rest of the area is wooded.

What should I do with the land to maximize the 11 acres and pay off this $500/month loan payment + taxes and insurance. I did the math and making hay bales wouldn't even cover the monthly payment. Not sure on local laws about livestock but I was thinking of pasteurizing goats and starting a market garden.

I'm young and live with my parents, and just wanted to own land. Fuck paying hundreds of dollars every month for a house on a 500 square foot plot. Hopefully someday I will build a house on it.

I'm currently in college but self supporting (no parents) and live off of 660/mo. Rent is 429, food is $60, and the rest goes to gas and weed. Utilities are included. It ain't hard.
Just to pile on, my median income gross per family is something like 40k. 2000 a month easily be lived on with spare for establishing savings.

I grew up well off in a more affluent area. Sounds like the original skeptic was from the same background and hadn't experienced anything else yet.

OP, figure out what sells well at local gmfarmers markets and no co ops. Food is a great way to pick up part time cash
What do you buy with the $60?
It's literally one side sperging on the other for not throwing all their money at food just because they can. If you're spending more than $8-$10 a day on food you're literally wasting your money and were probably raised by parents who ordered delivery or ate out because they couldn't cook worth a shit. You'd be amazed how much good food you can make on a budget with a crockpot and a couple brain cells. TLDR - just end it now fattie
Fertilize it naturally over the years to restore soil. Once every three months or so. Find some compost or something not harsh.

>Any bike can do it provided its metal and you have the wheels.
That's technically true but not very helpful, some bikes are definitely better at certain things than others, and some are more versatile at multiple things than others.

You need to see your front wheel, especially on poorly maintained roads. Never mount a bag on the handlebars.

The gearing is a very casual 38/18. Whenever the climbs got too steep I just got off my bicycle and walked. Can't imagine it damaged my knees all that much.
People have been using handlebar bags for 100 years and most of them didn't die from it, you nervous nellie, besides, you're supposed to be looking at the road ahead not straight down so you have time to react.
You can cut corners everywhere but never skimp on a good seat, get a brooks saddle and you'll be laughing, I rode for 2 months to Spain on a brand new Brooks without any cream or padding and didn't get a single sore

>stretching is a crutch
Right that makes sense. I was pretty surprised at that pace. Those numbers still look good to me though. Certainly you have a base fitness level to complete the race. As an aside runners are pretty comfortable using km because we all do 5ks. No need to convert. Replying mainly to bump the thread so you get some more useful advice. Perhaps other ultra marathon runners can talk about races they've run.

Yeah, having more anons sharing their experiences and maybe discussing next races, gear, fitness and all would be pretty cool. Maybe some pics too, thread is still young so there's plenty of replies left before it dies.
you dont need to disassemble them, you use them to go uphill, then just hold them, or better, swing them around as you run down.
In the Alps its a big help when you have to go up long slopes. Going down, a bit of extra weight wont slow you.
There's a large gap between a gentle slope and 'challenging terrain'. Poles can be collapsed and assembled mid-run.

What I started doing is to trace the altitude graph in my notebook (yeah, paper baby) and annotate it with various pieces of information.

Snowline, aid stations, what kind of food I get where,how much to carry myself, technical sections, how much to eat where, altitude, pacing ideas, etc

The days before the race I re-trace it again and again with a pen, visualising the route in quite some detail. I typically have GMaps 3d view to help me 'see' the route more clearly. The idea is to commit as much to memory as possible so I can make better decisions, manage resources, pace myself, and motivate myself during the run. It also completely replaced race anxiety with focused anticipation.

Works incredibly well for runs with a lot of varying terrain and endless ascents.

Old thread reached bump limit and 404'd, so I figured I'd start a new one of these. Share your new and old recordings, tips and tricks, gear and equipment recommendations, etc.
Just went out in the field with my new Tascam DR-100MkIII. Was rather impressed with the preamps and quality of the recordings but I still have to get the hang of the proper input levels.

Here's a recording taken today at a new spot I visited, along with the desert spring in pic related. The recording has been unedited aside from cutting off the head and tail of the recording and boosting the loudness to TR-B32 standards. I had the input levels set at "18.0" while recording, as well as the built-in low-cut filter set to 220Hz. Huge improvement over the DR-05, probably even more so when I get better at using the device to its full potential. Let me know what you think, thanks! The band-tailed pigeons periodically hooting in the background are my favorite part. Thankfully the recorder did not pick up much of the thousands of flies/mosquitos/annoying flying insects swarming my exposed skin and face. They weren't bad in the meadow areas but were hellish in the shade of the forest canopy.

bump, made some recordings today. Forgot my headphones so couldn't tell what it sounded like in the field, have to check them out later and see if I got anything worth keeping. It was really windy so not expecting much.

I did see some cool stuff though, including this dogfight between a red-tailed hawk and an aggressive small bird. The small one actually landed a few hits.

Are unisex wetsuits a meme or do they fit both men and women somewhat properly?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
i know its not the asnwer you want to hear, but i would recommend trying on any wetsuit before you buy it. and i dont know if i would go unisex. it makes sense if you a run a rental company but you want your wetsuit to fit your right.
ayoooo my brotha.

you raft, surf, or dive?
I have a few suits I got after trying them on, I was mostly just wondering since I've never tried unisex ones and figured they might be a meme. It seems most diving classes are taught using them, but most of the gear they use is ill fitting anyway so it wouldn't surprise me if they're all using poorly fitting wetsuits as well.
not a meme, just an option. stop worrying about what people will think of you and worry about what's good for yourself

OP these guys are dicks. There is obviously something more going on here. My Ex-girlfriend's younger brother had stuff going on too so I'm somewhat familiar with what i guess is the scene.

If you think you are ready to handle an overnight alone, its something you are going to have just do. Explain to your parents what skills you have and what precautions you will take. write it down a full plan and why it is a safe endeviour for you to take. have someone you trust go over it with you before presenting to your parents. sit them down and lay it out.
You should've been working part time and summers since age 12 to pay for buying a car and moving out when you finish highschool at age 17/18.

Like everyone else says, get a job and move out when you can afford it. Parents shouldn't be controlling you this much at age 20.
Hell by the time I was 22 I was traveling around the world. I haven't even lived in my home country for 15 years. Just do what you want to. Don't live your life for someone else, or you'll end up cucked like Luke Skywalker, stuck working on your uncle's farm cuz he needs you for "just one more harvest"
Start with the day hikes. Acquire gear/experience over time. Find places you'd like to spend more time in.
