Are there ever rockhound threads on /out/? Found these in high desert colorado, curious if anyone knows what they are. They're part of a petrified wood collection I found in a washout (next pic) and I'm curious what the type is that gives this unique orange yellow hue.

And this is petrified wood, correct? Got a dozen smaller chunks just want to verify it's actually petrified wood.

Also it was public space before anyone gets their panties in a bunch.
>public space
by which I mean it was in previously untouched land between two new housing developments, so not public or private land really just a garbage wash with a few little coulees.
>I'm curious what the type is that gives this unique orange yellow hue
Best way to identify it is to lick it. Kek. But seriously, yellow-orange in rocks is usually from trace iron inclusions
Looks like a type of limestone. I think it is quite common for them to have parts that contain oxidized iron, at least that's what my local limestone has a lot of. Some of these cracked open can reveal fossils.
it does look a little bit like PW. Is it a spot known for it? I found a nice chunk of 50 million yr old redwood tree

We don't talk about the Antarctic natives.
Just stay away from Antarctica, for your own safety, for all of our safety.
There's a reason all of the major powers of the world have agreed to leave Antarctica alone, and it's not just because of the cold.
that is a lie, they crashed at about an hour walking downhill to some local rancher's place

For me, it's the car Shackleton took to Antarctica
If you read up on all those early polar expeditions it was always the Scandinavians who did well and know what they were doing, a lot of their stuff isn't well known or translated though.
Guys like Shackleton and Scott were performers, not proper adventurers. They were the ones who managed to convince English donors to fund their adventures where they got up to all kind of retarded high jinks, came back and got good publishing deals from their rich buddies for their accounts.

... is this feasible?
almost certainly no, but if you were to maybe illegally hunt and forage (check edible native plants in the area and "farm" them by just propagating them around the place) maybe you wouldnt starve. make sure you set up near water but not too near
actual pastoral nomads have hundreds to thousands of animals and their entire extended family living and working with them. They also migrate to different areas each season. If you cant do this you'll starve

Why would you want other people to see you before you see them? That would make me very uncomfortable, like sitting at the very first table in the break room with your back to entrance. I don't own a single piece of clothing or gear that is any color except Earth brown, olive drab green, and stone grey. The whole point of going out in the woods is escaping humanity and becoming invisible and being left the fuck alone.

When in Rome...So I'll have some colorful clothes and kit, but also some camo stuff on tap. A thread like this exists because people can feel uneasy if a fully-kitted camo dude suddenly appears before them. Keep the normies happy and usually all is well.

Disagree, browns tans and greens are nice, especially as pant/short colors. Go nuts up top. Put on a friendly face and all that. Maybe even God Forbid make some friends with the normies in your area and have hiking buddies on tap, of all persuasions from amateur-hour tiktokkers to paranoid smelly vets.

Yes. Sometimes there's good deals to be had amongst the goofy colored stuff.
A notable risk. Fair.
EVERYONE in the southwest tints their shit. You can literally spot the out of state lost folks by how untinted their stuff is. Though there's also the topless jeep types in my area. YMMV depending on the clime you live in though.

i got my boating license today, see you on the high seas anons
Alright fellas, what should I want to do if I want to live on a boat, have a budget of $20,000 (for the boat alone, I have a shit ton of money for other things like food, tools, etc), wanted to bounce between the bahamas, Florida, be able to spend months remotely in the Everglades/Keys, and be able to stay in town for short periods of time as well, all on top of having no boating experience?

Big ask, but I gotta know. I am losing my mind here in Orlando.

20k seems on the low end for a liveaboard that can sail reliably/safely between Florida and the Bahamas. I would probably add another 15-20k as a buffer for replacing/repairing/adding anything on the boat (e.g. do all the batteries need replaced, are the electronics all good, are the sails worn out, does the hull need scrubbed and repainted, does it already have a windvane steering system or do you need to buy one, etc.)
I have an inflatable boat on the way :3

I remember once when our class went on a field trip to the local metropark and some guide or whoever was telling us about a plant that came out around Halloween and smelled like boloney meat

Any anons know about this plant or was he just some crazy asshole trolling some kids?

around Lake Michigan area if location helps
Amorphophallus titanum
would be my only guess
The great black swamp used to have all sorts of biodiversity before they drained it and paved it over. It could be a holdover from the native biome that was obliterated and largely forgotten.
This is a tropical plant, as is the Carron Flower.
Skunk cabbage is native to the US but it doesn't smell like boloney.
The closest for deciduous forest is probably the pitcher plant. Semi-digested bugs can pile up and somewhat smell like meat. The plant itself smells sweet though.

I like quality baloney.

If you disagree you are wrong.

First it should have a blade between 6"-8" long. You need a long blade for a myriad of tasks, but primarily you need it for splitting, for rapid carving with the spine braced against your knee (critical for making things like wedges), and for combat effectiveness. This puts the overall length at 10"-14", which is the maximum length for concealment/EDC, which is the whole purpose of a survival knife.

The knife shouldn't weigh more than 16 ounces. More than that and it's probably just going to be clumsy for most tasks and too redundant with a hatchet. The knife should only have enough heft to easily cut down poles 1"-3" in diameter or cut someone's fingers off. If you don't have a saw for some unfortunate reason, the way you crosscut bigger trees with the knife is to baton it across the grain like a chisel, you shouldn't be relying on chopping heft for this. The point of balance should be around the index finger in a high grip.

It must be made of carbon steel or low alloy tool steel like 01, 52100, 5160, etc. Stainless steels, especially "super steels", are useless garbage that trade every single desirable quality of steel like impact resistance and sharpenability and fine grained edge just for slightly better edge retention, which is something only inexperienced people care about. The heat treatment should be rather soft. The knife should be indestructible and easy to sharpen with anything, with edge retention being a distant priority.

it's shit steel, but shit steel can be comfy, if you want to mistreat your knife and occasionally sharpen an edge very quickly when you need it, it works great, it's pretty much indestructible. if you need something that holds an edge a for long time it's not great, better get harder steel. it's very thick too so not good for fine work
go back to /k/
any recommendations?
I was planning on getting the strong arm for anything and everything so I can buy one knife and never worry again.
if you are only going to do bushcraft stuff, the Gerber Strongarm is fine, but take a sharpening stone

if you are going to do hunting or cleaning fish as well as bushcrafting, get some better steel blade, maybe a RUIKE F118 JAGER
So... this or nothing.

Do you guys bring any instruments with you when you go /out/? Im considering picking up a naf, harmonica, or small travel guitar to maybe jam a bit when im camping overnight.

another good beach instrument is the harp, you can leave it on a log and the wind will play it for you dependent on which way it is gusting and how fast it will trigger different strings to ring out with little attack and a long release so the notes sort of float in and out of space. i got this harp for like 50 bucks from some native guy who i am pretty sure stole it because they are for sale for 900 DOLLARS wtf!
Would be better if a friend brought a dread and the other a banjo and another a dobro but the days of everybody knowing an instrument are over. ( {:'^(I]))

Could probably strap one of these to it to ease the weight a bit.

Modernity is so goddamn gay, decades ago you could hitchhike easily and truckers would pick you up really fast, nowadays they aren't even legally allowed to pick you because laws, company policies and insurance garbage.
And this is just an example of many, as we move forward and as the population grows things get worse /out/ wise.

Looking for a good pair of lightweight 'noculars.

I bought a pair of carson 8x21 but the FOV is horrible and there's awful fringing and fisheyeing through the eyepieces.
8 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I'd suggest the Vortex Diamondback HD in 8x32, or 8x42 if you're good with the weight. I find them to be very good for the money, particularly the 8x42, which is not heavy at all, and even easier to carry with a shoulder harness. Plus the VIP warranty, etc.

If you really want small and light, consider the Vortex Solo 8x36 monocular. It's the optic I use even more than my own binoculars (Nikon Monarch M7 8x42 and Vortex Viper HD 8x42) simply because it's so damn convenient, even though it's technically inferior to the other two.
what does this mean? what does the 8 mean and what does the 32 mean?
First number is the magnification, so 8x.
Second number is the diameter of the lens closer to the object, so 32mm. The larger the objective lens, the brighter the image.
the first number is the magnification, and the second number is the objective lense. the bigger the objective lense, the more light gathering potential. that means better performance in low light conditions like dusk and dawn. most 8x42 and 10x42 are the sweet spot in terms of performance to size ratio, but while fairly small, they are not true "compact" binoculars like 8x32 which are noticeably smaller, but more importantly significantly lighter.
ok thanks anons. planning on getting something good but i need to save up a bit first
