I'm trying to build a hammock kit that will turn into a tent to keep bugs out when I'm above tree level

Does this exist?

8x8 is the point a quilt is functional as a sleeping bag/hammock(doubled), 10-12 square is when you can build an encompassing tent, by pulling the midpoint of 1 side to the corner of either opposing side, and tying it off above ground to a pole, staking down all the corners

i dont often purvey the use of a hammock out of my quilts, but i do at least once test their ability to do it, as well as how to tie off in a way that preserves the integrity, which ultimately comes down to distributing tension onto the rope, and off the quilt
>>
>>1158671
thanks buddy! What about the floor though? We get major slugs in my part of England and the thought of finding one in my sleeping bag is enough to pack it in entirely
>>
>>1158671
im trying to use quilt to describe all types of viable sheets, but i think im going to use the word textile. the issue is the word textile is so sterile that by trying to describe many things, it ends up describing none

tarp, sheet. there are many different types of textiles that are very exclusive from each other in design, but all can be considered for similar jobs. etc etc
>>
>>1158676
the picture and description is involving a tent system with a floor, though youll also want a groundcloth, unless you have a sleeping bag etc. its not watertight, but can be made to severely limit exposure

>>1158678
Ah, quilt was confusing
Quilt = blanket, sleeping bag, hammock insulation
Tarp = sheet, textile
I'm kind of tired, I can't read straight. Thanks for your advice buddy, I'll check >>1158682 this out in the morning!

Much thanks m8s

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Prince Albert, Carter Hall or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $20.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

Hello! I just recently bought my first mushroom spawn from Bluff City Fungi. This is my first time growing mushrooms, and I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me how I should go about setting the spawn up?I know indirect sunlight is a must, and so is moisture, but how do I go about moisturizing a closed-bag spawn? Are there any tips or suggestions for growing these little guys cheep?

Pic is some oyster spawn I found on the internet, not my own.

Thank you for the explanation and thank you for the compliment. I have been working out the design for quite some time now and the whole thing has gone through many changes. Positive response is quite validating.

It's fine if you have a quality belt and the wider the better so as to resist vertical warping.

This anon knows. Wide weight distribution is key with pouches on the belt.

I just checked, mine is actually made by Brady. You should check out Hardy if you ever need another - they're made in Alnwick, my local town and they're also pretty solid.

How to become more comfortable going /out/? And by that I mean being able to deal with encountering other people on the trail. I want to go out to enjoy nature without getting dirty looks and judgment from other people like I do in the city. How do I learn to not give a fuck?

Agreed, people usually only react weirdly or dickish to a standard hello if it's a crowded trail full of normies. All the more reason to avoid them.

Hey /out/. I haven't gone snowboarding since I was 13. Some personal shit happened that prevented me from snowboarding after that. I don't live in an area with a lot of good places to skateboard. I'm kind of shit at skateboarding anyways, but I keep trying to get better.
I always really loved snowboarding though, but it's been so long that I'm practically a beginner again. I have no clue where to start.
If there's anybody here who is into board sports, could you help me out with some snowboard recommendations? I'm looking for something reasonably affordable, beginner level, all mountain, good flex, 160 cm+, and camber.
>inb4 check the sticky
I did. There was nothing about snowboarding, save for the history, under outdoor sports.
/boarding/ general as well, so this thread isn't a complete waste of /out/'s time.

Yeah I usually don't get a ton of time to go either, usually once or twice a season if I'm lucky. I would go more but it's just expensive and I'm not as close as I would like to be, to the really nice mountains. Hoping it's going to snow again here soon

If and when I do go looking for a board, can I just go straight into the shop and start asking questions so the associates can find me a good fit for the boots, board, and bindings. Very little clue as to what I'm specifically looking for despite the things I listed.
I mean, the board, boots, and bindings I have now are from when I was 13 so I have no frame of reference. They don't fit me.
>>
>>1157597
weird... i like skateboarding way more than snowboarding even tho i as well am kind of shit at it. i dont think i could ever get tried of it.

that being said...
a lot of shops have rental programs were you can demo boards and boots you might be interested in. way better than he mountain side rental places.

What’s your ride or dream ride, /out/? Lay it on me

This yeah i dog a doggo and she will be one yeah at this summer so i wanna take her with me next times when we go.
Does any one have any suggestions in this area where we can stay without any contact with other people . I want a lake and some place where i can catch some fish,make fire and just enjoy the time. I also like hiking and have some exp. with camping.

Im just tired of looking online and searching on some lousy websites where u cant find anything.

So guys if u know some good spots or some areas i would appreciate it a lot.

Tnx in advance .

I'd add add 500-1000 to that just in cash, you need money on the run.
>>
>>1157054
>>1157055
You definitely don't need to spend that much!
>>
>>1153161

I'd suggest 300~ for bag itself so you've got winter kit that won't get you killed, and prolly about 300-500 for gun. Maybe something like a snubnosed .38 cal for compact stopping power.
