Bumping for interest, I too failed at that last year.
Dug out three plants very generously last year mid-November and pruned, then placed in different environments (cool and dark, warm and bright, cool and bright) but all 3 died.
So this year I'm keeping 3 plants potted directly, with mixed results: the potted Cayenne is doing MUCH better than those I planted in the ground (potted one already gave >100 fruits since mid-June while those in ground only recently started giving a few, maybe 50 total from 4 plants so far), but the bell varieties are yielding much smaller fruit potted whereas those planted out give huge ones (see pic). Maybe I need even bigger pots for them, but screw that, I already have more than enough shit to haul inside for winter

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:

>>1084334
>Whats the difference between the 3 tobaccos in the OP?
The common thread is they're all widely available and decent tasting yet inexpensive. Half and Half is the sweetest flavored of the three without being very temperamental, as very flavored tobaccos can be. The other two are unflavored, with Carter Hall being a bit more mild than Prince Albert.
>How do I pack/light tobacco without fucking it up?
Most newbies want to cram every bit of tobacco into their pipe. Don't do that. You need both tobacco and airflow for your pipe to stay lit. Just take pinches of tobacco and sprinkle them into your pipe without pressing it down until it reaches the top, then light all of it.
You're done lighting when a light puff on the pipe causes the whole top of the pipe to glow.
>Whats the best shape and style on the Missouri Meerschaum website for a cheap pipe Id like to pack and can be lit in windy conditions that I wont care too much if it breaks or I lose it?
Missouri Meerschaum Legend. Smokes awesome and available at most drugstores for $7 with tax.
>any suggestions/advice besides whats already been given in the OP and thread?
Those are the bare bones basics. Much of the other stuff is situational and can be addressed as you start smoking and encountering problems.

It's funny how the term "forest managment" is bandied about these days to mean different things. I'm not picking holes in what you're saying, I agree. Although if we consider that using a wood for wild pasture is in one sense very much a method of managment, as is 'restoring it' to what the vast majority of people consider to be more natural.

Ozark Trail
Yeti
Rtic
Coleman?

What's the deal. I hear Ozark is decent for money and Yeti is overpriced. All perform generally the same, Anyone have direct experience owning any of these. What should I go with for car camping?

>>1083816
Thanks for replying. I had no idea you couldn't use any old lock on the Yetis. I've seen several construction/landscaping trucks around here with Yetis in the back, and I've always wondered
1. why they spent so much on a cooler
2. aren't they worried it's gonna get stolen

Sounds like you've had a good experience with yours. I'm surprised you've had to buy dry ice twice in 2.5 days, no matter how cheap the cooler, though. One thing I always do for longer camping or festivals is have two coolers. One will have dry ice in the bottom and I'll layer bottled water over that. When those are frozen, I'll move them to the other (high-use) cooler and throw more water in the dry ice cooler, and just keep rotating. One package of dry ice usually lasts me 4 days at the height of Southern summer, and that's in a really crappy cooler.

I'll look into the Sportsman, thanks for the tip! Is it any lighter than a Yeti? I'd also like to see and handle an Orion, out of curiosity. I've owned a couple Jackson kayaks, and they're made by the same folks, so I would expect them to be of good quality, but they're just about as expensive as Yeti.
>>
>>1082209
Thanks for the reply. I'll probably get the Ozark trail 55. I just need some shit that can hold ice for a few days.

I have cheapo Coleman as well but prefer not filling it with ice every day. Yeti is ridiculously overpriced.

Looks like a lot of ppl on this board are poor faggots. I mean, yea I'm all for milsurp and shit but I'm talking about wally world shit here. Not fucking REI libcuck pizza makers for going out.
>>
>>1084062
You can lock the lid on a Yeti, it's got 2 holes at the front corners, but you'll need a long-hasp lock for it instead of a regular padlock (Yeti sells a rebranded long-hasp Masterlock brass padlock for $20 when you can buy a 3-pack at Home Depot for $12); and it's got this rectangular cutout on one side to accept an L-bracket with a hole in it that you then run a cable lock through (bike/treestand, Yeti sells a rebranded Masterlock Python which is a "treestand" lock for $5 more than an actual Masterlock Python) instead of just having a round hole you can run a cable lock through like an Orca/Igloo Sportsman/several other not-Yeti's.

The Igloo isn't any lighter than a Yeti, pretty much all of the roto-molded coolers are gonna be within a couple ounces of each other because all it is is a roto-molded shell over styrofoam. It's a fantastic design, bombproof and extremely well insulated, but it IS heavy. If you need light but don't need durable buy a disposable styrofoam cooler from wherever sells bagged ice, they work almost as well.

I would never pay full retail for a Yeti, they are overpriced (I won my Tundra 75 in a Ducks Unlimited raffle while trying to win a shotgun)

Yeti sizes do not reflect their capacity, unlike all other coolers. A Tundra 75 (or any other size) does NOT have a 75 quart capacity, it's closer to 60 quarts. The Igloo Sportsman 55 holds 55 quarts on the dot, and has close to the same internal capacity as a Yeti Tundra 65. I swear they just pulled random numbers out of their ass.
>>
>>1084062
Whoops, totally forgot to address the "why 2x dry ice" question.
1. I'm trying to chill down an animal that was alive within an hour of it going in the cooler (so at least 90-95*F meat temperature), ideally actually freezing it, because I've got a 2.5 day drive to get home
2. Wyoming is generally SUNNY AS FUCK, when the cooler's in the bed of my truck under the topper it's got an ambient air temperature around 20-30 degrees higher than outside the truck. If it's 90*F outside, the cooler's baking at about 110-120*F. Pretty extreme demands on the cooler. This would be far less of an issue if it were in the cab or if I had something like an SUV where the cooler was somewhere climate controlled while the truck was running.
3. While antelope are certainly on the smaller size of "big game", a quartered antelope JUST BARELY fits in a Tundra 75. Not a lot of room, so I'm usually buying 1-2lbs of dry ice instead of 5+

Depending on location and weather, even the water you need could be well above that.
Also it's not a question of can or can't, most people don't go out to suffer. The same way you wouldn't use a shitty ill-fitting shoe, you shouldn't use a pack that leaves you in pain.
