Bro, you need to relax. Western nations are not this bad. However, they are on a course to be this bad if we allow mass immigration and globalism to continue. You need to push for a nationalist closed bored system. Protecting the environment is part of the nationalist dream as well.

Western nations have a stable birthrate. A return to traditionalism and a focus on renewables and environmental protection will lead to paradise.

Just gotta keep those unwashed hordes out senpai. If you want a future that is.

i used to plant trees and the company i worked for fed us pretty well but we had a few weeks of down time so i went to work at another company for a bit

you could tell right away that something was "off" with the camp. everyone was gaunt and tired looking, not the robust fit tree planters i was used to seeing.

the first day there it was obvious what was going on. it was "vegan dinner" night. falafel on pita bread with iceburg lettuce and tomatoes. there were no seconds. breakfast you might get an egg if you were fast but they ran out pretty quickly. they didn't even have adequate lunch supplies. i didn't stay at that company for more than a couple days. fuck being hungry

Can you guys give me some comprehensive advice on buying some forest land and getting started for living innawoods? What things should I keep in mind when looking for some innawoods land to aquire?

Yep... instant coffee. I like coffee very strong and these little packets are the easiest way to make it without tons of grounds, a percolator, filters, the right temp fire, etc. It tastes decent too, especially with evaporated milk and sugar.
>>
>>963713

the nice thing about packets is each one stays fresh, unlike a big jar of instant coffee.

important to buy COLOMBIAN though if you want OK tasting coffee.

Look up a sea shanty play list on youtube guys, they're unreal, I'm dying to learn some.

OP I've never been bored at sea, there's too much to do.

When sailing you're trimming the sails (obvs) and following your course. Then of course making notes in the log every 15 mins.

Making endless lists of jobs to do on the boat.

Deciding that this year you'll eventually change all the lines.

Looking for compression sacks for my sleeping back, I have a ruck cover but sometimes it just doesn't cut it and individual compartmentalization is sometimes nice too. Post your favorite brands, or recommendations.

Gf and I have identical Coleman bags (they zip together for sexy times) and they have those cheap zippers that look like they're going to burst any moment.
The best success I've had was compressing the bag down as tight as humanly possible, then have the gf hold the zipper closed so it doesn't undo itself as the bag goes in.
She tried to zip it up with the sleeping bag inside and immediately busted the zipper.
Thankfully the fabric didn't tear and I was able to nigger rig the zipper.

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.
Accessories needed: 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? Pack it looser 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 packing using the Frank Method, detailed here:
Part 1: http://youtu.be/kJP0JaNRw6Q
Part 2: http://youtu.be/9U5QbtyNxhA
Part 3: http://youtu.be/OMtHOAiO8CI

Corncob all the way.

Smokes great, is light and cheap.
They're also pretty tolerant of getting wet. If one goes swimming by mistake, just set it in the sun for a day to dry out. And if you do manage to break it, a new one is just $7 away at your local drug store. That's 1/4 the price of even a no-name "basket" briar pipe from a local tobacconist

Pipe of the day
Falcon filled with Erinmore Flake.

After trying to smoke whole flakes without very good results, I hit upon rubbing out the flake before packing with the musketball method. That gives a much better smoke.
I'm still undecided about whether I like Erinmore or not, but at least I'll probably finish the tin instead of throwing it all away like I considered before.

And when I google pictures of snowdon I don't see people with tons of specialise equipment they're just wearing shirts and trainers.

>pic related
is Crib Goch, where people need to be taken from by helicopters regularly, not to mention other places. Himalayan mountaineers practice there. Some people took this path because on the map it looked shorter, and low clouds prevented them from seeing the ridge. You can get quick weather changes out there as well.

Sure, the route from Llanberis is nice and easy steady slope, but you always should give it some look before you go with shorts, chocolate and water bottle.

As for OP, just use common sense. Have a map, or even a website printed route sketch, no matter how easy it seems. Watch the weather or be prepared for everything, otherwise don't be afraid or ashamed to go back.

>>>972990
>If that's pic related, there's a rail going up too...

Not OP here - that's Snowdon in Wales. Nice walk from a multitude of angles.

Long wander go up from Llanberis.

Steep and quick take the Pyg track or Watkin path.

Most challenging go up from pen-y-pass and head over Crib Goch.

Or be a pussy and get the train.
