Seriously? All this time I thought it was something more useful since it have such a thick stem.
Nope, just poorfag food.
You can eat it when it is young if you follow procedure (google) and use the ripe berries as a dye (google).

I was cheeky today and harvested a small main crop potato that was poking out the top of the soil and cooked it.

I happened to stumble upon this thread, have you ever asked the church for help?

Especially if your willing to try and work and get back on your feet?

I heard some success from it, but usually what I hear is most churches don't have the raw resources to help, though it would be a good try, especially if you get acquainted with the community and attend the church they will go out of their way to help you.
Con: you have to go to church and be around church people.

Your a fucking idiot, punk ass.
you can do the Gabrielino Trail (JPL) to Chantry Flat as a day hike (28 miles).

theres a lot of shade up there, but also boulders in some areas. bring boots. bring a USB powerbank, plenty of water or a water filter.

do it with a partner if you can. its black bear and mountain lion country up there. start early, around 6 AM

/tpg/-Tobacco Pipe General

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:

Well damn, now I know what my problem is. Someone told me that you're not supposed to let it dry. My Frosty Mint is fairly wet.
You don't want it fully desiccated because then it tastes like ass, but most aromatics come quite a bit wetter than what is ideal because they expect it to dry out as you smoke through it and they don't want it going stale before you finish it.
The easy way to gauge proper moisture is with a pinch test.
Your tobacco should be moist enough to spring back when you pinch it, but not so moist that it feels wet at all.

That's when humidifying packs like pic related are called for.
When things start tasting faded, throw your tobacco into a ziplock bag or glass Mason jar (more ideal), drop a humidifying pack into it and wait a couple of days. When the humidity equalizes it should taste how you remember it.
The nice thing about those particular humifiers is that they work two ways-when the tobacco is too wet they will absorb moisture too, unlike other humidifiers. When things are REALLY dry I still like the older types for dumping larger amounts of water into the tobacco, but when it's close, in goes the two-way pack.
Recognize that painting!

Wasn't really sure which board this belonged to but /out/ seemed as good as any. Do any of you use and recommend military rations as good backpacking sustenance? Perhaps not solely but serving as a high calorie base and adding other stuff too? What sort of stuff would serve as a good supplement to them? Those who do have experience, what are the pros cons? I've heard constipation is an issue but that seems easily resolvable if you're prepared for it.

I had a mate in the TA(brit army thing) back at uni and she offloaded loads of her 24 hour ration packs to me at the time. I remember they actually tasted pretty awesome and were really quite substantial (hence why she never finished or even cracked them all open). But I wonder do other countries have better rations? And where is the best place to go about buying these sorts of things?

What good is an aircraft carrier with no fucking planes?

You scrapped 90% of your Harriers and mothballed the rest, you have exactly 0 operational Harriers. You also have exactly 0 F35's to launch off it. The QE is a glorified helicopter taxi until you pull the scotsman out of your coin purse and actually buy some planes.

Okay I guess this was a little exaggerated.

6 years before I joined (1999 was the last year Charms were put in MRE's). Which means the MRE expired at least 12 years ago.
>bong army hasn't seen combat at all since WW2
Haha what? Are you high? Have you somehow missed all of the British troops that went off to assist in your county's madness in Iraq and Afghanistan? Many of which were killed by your military's gross incompetence might I add.

>most effective military ever to exist
HAHAHA I can't believe you actually think that. Ignoring some of the obvious historical greats like the mongols and the romans, even just considering relatively modern ones you don't get 1st prize. Aside from the substandard quality of your troops, the age in which your military exists is one which doesn't not permit it to bring its full might to bear. The only good thing about your military is its size and how much money is thrown at it. And it's all wasted since you can't actually make full use of it. Most effective my arse hahahah. Try that claim again once you've conquered half the world and brought those countries directly under your control.
We still have an array of typhoons for the moment. And there is a large order of F-35B Lightning IIs incoming. 24 sometime next year to fully fit the HMS Queen Elizabeth and another 20 by 2023 for the HMS Prince of Wales. There's no great rush, it's highly unlikely we'll need them in the next few months.

Went to view a Land Rover today.
The ad said Defender, but the vendor admitted it was an older one with a "facelift".

I Was still interested in buying up to that point, so we went for a drive.

Definitely the worst car I've ever driven.
If someone had told me how terrible this car was to drive I never would have believed them.
It's nothing like I expected.
They're rough and have no shoulder room, eh?

But they'll run into 200k and down the forests like needed and are the only acceptable "cube" vehicles besides the G-Wagons.

Where do you live?
This is why I'm going to be joining that 4Runner life soon. Once my XJ goes to poop, there's no way I'll be able to justify another, so might as well dump it off before it gets bad and get a 4Runner.
The shoulder thing was one of them.
Apparently you're not supposed to sit facing towards the wheel, but facing slightly inward, and your elbow is supposed to extend out the window, while you steer by pivoting your wrist up and down .

There is like 2.75" of room between the wheel and the door. Almost enough room for your knuckles.

The vendor had to explain all the car's quirks and the complicated systems for working them before allowing me to drive.

We met just after 4pm and as I left it was getting dark. So at least 4 hours of him explaining 'system' and technicas'.

Now I know all the 27 spots LandRovers leak oil, and that the gearbox drain plug uses a "English 1/2 inch wrench. Muy muy muy importante never a 13mm or bad things happen"
Also the drain plug is magnetized to pick up metal shavings caused by the oil being too low. But I shouldn't worry because the gearbox is "Kalashnikov" and can run without oil.

And that the way to know if reverse is engaged and not 1st is that the gear stick almost touches the dashboard in reverse.

Hello /out/.
Im gonna go camping for a few days. This will be the first time im gonna go camping alone and for a long period of time. Ill go to a place far away from any civilization and desu im kind of spooked. I dont go camping alot but i want to try something new and i think going camping alone for about a week will boost my thirst for nature, innawoods and such. Any tips/advice?
You should really bring a buddy. Only experienced campers should be alone. If the solitude is what you want, then you dont need to setup near each other, but having a lifeline within a few hundred yards is invaluable.
Camping alone only boosts my thirst for people to talk to and a fast food burger.
Due to most people on 4chan having terrible social skills, we end up having threads about this exact topic on a weekly basis here. Here are two that are still up you can check out:
There's nothing inherently more dangerous or more scary about solo camping if you have any kind of experience in the backcountry. That said, it might help people give you advice if you told us where you intend to go and your personal history in the outdoors. The kind of advice given to a former Boy Scout who knows the basics but just never went /out/ much without a group is going to be very different from the kind of advice given to someone who is totally out of shape and was raised by television and video games but now wants to do a circuit of the Tetons solo.

I'll list a few basic questions below. If you want to answer them here, it will help move this conversation forward. If not, I'd still recommend thinking about them for your own sake.

>1) If you plan to do any hiking with a backpack, then what is your level of physical fitness, particularly cardiovascular? What distance can you run at a moderate jog without stopping?

>2) Do you have any camping equipment and what do you have? In particular, think about your sleeping bag, sleeping pad, tent, rain gear, backpack and a way to keep the gear inside dry if it rains, your water treatment device or chemicals, and a stove (if you plan to cook or boil water for dehydrated meals).

>3) When/how many times have you gone camping before and how did it go? How involved were you in planning the trip?

>4) What is the general area and type of terrain where you want to go camping this time (specifics would be nice, but not required if you are afraid of people stalking you)? Have you gone there before with other people and do you have maps of the area?

Im kind of big-boned. I have a little bit of fat but have a musscely build and i can jog around 20minutes without stoping. I hike in the mountains alot.
I have a fiarly good BOB that I use to go camping. I dont like tents so i use a tarp to cover my head from rain and stuff. I have alot of quality tools, machetes a good knife, good multitool, a really expensive flashlight, bushcraft kit, etc... Ive went trough a couple of camping checklists and made a thread about a year ago for gear and i have everything.
Ive went about 8-10 times. I planed the trip like 5 times out of that.
I want to go wold camping. I live in Slovenia, flora and fauna here are like any central-european country. I live in the hills and all around me are dense forests, big mossy rocks, alot of deadwood, big pine and oak trees. I wont post a map for the sace of annonimity, but here is a picture of how the forests look like here if its any help.
Fishing, building a bushcraft shelter with isolation walls, camp kitchen frame, basicly a temporary living quarter if you wish to call it that, i want to try bow hunting, hiking and photography
