The biggest impact to nature a rock cairn has is to increase erosion due to the stones being removed from their natural location.

Is it remotely possible for someone who is poor to escape all the intrusions of corporations, scammers, solicitors and government bureaus into your life? I've considered buying some kind of vehicle to live in just to get the fuck away from the constant harassment and intrusions. ShadowRun SUCKS ASS. I want to be LEFT THE FUCK ALONE.

Best place to learn to ski for cheap is go to Japan and get lessons from an English speaking instructor.
Lift passes are $15 a day there and a day's lesson will only set you back $20 or so as well.

> snowboarding is better in shitty conditions. Skiiers have a real hard time on icy or slushy conditions like in spring, snowboarders don't give a shit.

I'd push back on that. In powder snowboarding > skiing. On hardpack/ice skiing > snowboarding.

Reason being that skis can have 2 edges in the snow while snowboards can only have one. This provides much better traction and control in icy/hardpack conditions. For the same reason, though, skis have less surface area on powder and are more likely to get caught. Either way, both sports are great, but skis are definitely more versatile.

If it is white, yes, otherwise you'd need to paint it flat/matte white or add mylar. Most dishwashers will white, but not flat/matte. The difference isn't too much, but if you do need to paint it use flat/matte white.

You are a dumb fuck. A food desert means you live more than 10 miles from a grocery store. Just drive a half hour, load up on groceries once every week or two. I live 4 hours from the nearest grocerie store. So I garden and buy groceries every two weeks. People are poor and fat because they are stupid and deserve all shit they get.

I think they're cool but only slightly better than a tote bag.
Of course a bag insert could be great for a 'go bag' or medics back pack.

They’re gay, don’t bother. If you want something with organisation get a washbag, doppkit etc (milsurp have good examples of this) that’s compact and all in one, much easier to rifle through in bad weather

But really I don’t use any of this admin stuff anymore since I got /out/ more frequently. It’s largely totally pointless and for the fat prepper types that sit at home micromanaging the “doomsday loadout” they’ll never use, or thinking that buying Molle compatible Tacticool stuff somehow makes them “prepared” or “functional” with vague mountainman delusions.

Real /out/doorsmen don’t have enough meme shit that they need to hang a walk in tacticool IKEA closet from a tree. Multi tool, lighter, medkit pouch, compass, snacks, map can all be easily sorted into one drysack or ziplock or distributed across pockets. This is boomer larp shit that not even the military bothers with much.
