Are CRISPI boots any good?

if your looking for that kind of model look the Cosmas Tuscania one which is basically the same, probably cheaper, still good

Italian boots tend to be too narrow for me.
If I was going Italian I'd go for Zamberlan. Look for something with the least amount of stitching.
If I was going German I'd go Meindl albeit Lowa is fine. Same principle applies. Also don't use wax conditioner on rand or it will delaminate.
Now I just use the vivobarefoot esc models and add an insole.

>Italian boots tend to be too narrow for me.
yeah I'm italian and I would love to buy local hiking shoes/boots for the convenience but they are all so fucking narrow and I have wide feet. I always resort to buying online from english or american brands instead since they are seemingly the only ones with a good selection of actually wide fits
>>
>>2720134
idk
>>
>>2721684
>>2721690
For German, I’d look at Hanwag. They have wide lasts. Ditto in minimal stitching.


I’ve had Lowas, wouldn’t again. I’d stick to Zamberlan or Hanwag.

What do you guys think of camping solo?
I went to camp for the first time with my gf and enjoyed it a lot. This may become a lifelong hobby but I'm also a loner sperg with few to none friends so I may want to go by myself sometime.
Do you guys think its worth it? I can see myself high on drugs going for some gooning session before lighting up a campfire and cooking something tasty to ease the munchies before some kindle reading by some river or maybe going for a hike.

im the opposite lol. lot's of friends and a career. but no balls/ability to chat up irl women and dating app encounters always have me running for the hills.

Once during a week long camp I didn't use the hood of my rain jacket when it was pouring heavily. Instead I used some retarded gore-tex hat. So the rain kept building up in my hood and every time I bent down to perform some task or look at something the water from my hood went right down my spine. Luckily it was summer so it wasn't that cold.

The purpose of this general is to encourage people to go /out/ and find cool fossils and artifacts. This thread is also a place to share our own collections and things we find when we are /out/ hunting.

Rules are as follows,
>To just post and discuss fossils and other related geological subjects.
>When you post about a fossil in your collection, please label it with what formation it is from, what it is, and where in the world it is from.
>If you don't know where it originated or the species that is ok, just label it as so

Trust me, you don't want it faster. I remember when it got faster during covid. It turned to shit. People took allllllll the fucking bait. It fucked the "board culture" or whatever you want to call it with all the tourists and trolls outnumbering the actual users. It's slow, sure, but you don't want to have it faster with more retards. It just buttfucks the usefulness and frankly how nice it is here. More people and faster is not always better.

Lot's of permacultures have wells and cisterns. I don't think you know what permaculture is... Water management is as much about groundwater recharge which feeds the aquifer your well accesses as it is about "watering plants."
Permaculture focuses what the watershed is doing and what the aquifer is doing and how to maximize that water.

I have a dream to see the Wollemi pines in the wild. But the actual location of the valley containing the trees within the national park is a closely guarded secret. Wollemi NP is massive and almost entirely wilderness; I'm pretty sure I could search for years without ever finding them.

Does anyone have any leads or know anything about this?

From talking to people in the NPWS there are several strands, but I don't think they're that distinct that you could spot them on a map like that.

Maybe with very high res aerial photos.

there are between 200 and 60 in the wild (its hard to count them apparently). a photo showing more than 200 trees isnt going to be it

What's the most based swing/hammock/pod? My tree is about 100 years old, the branch is 12" around so plenty strong. It snapped this winter however from a wet snow, so I cut it about 4' from the trunk. It would have to be a single mounting point.

I ask because there's so many options and the prices are all over the place, kinda overwhelmed with it.

Would spend up to a few hundred bucks.

You have to buy a claim or something iirc.
I've been watching "Ghost Town Living" lately, and its all about mines and history.
To know if you can mine, I'd check with your county/local government or something like that.

I work in mining in the Eastern US. You nead to own or lease the mineral rights. The government isnt the worse when it comes to leasing the mineral rights but if there is ore in your area the leases may already be held by another company. Also, I havw no fuckin clue how claims and shit work out west if you are there.

starting this because i don't want to clutter the catalog with my dumb ass question. i am trying to plan an /out/ing, 4-day weekend type deal. i would ask my best friend who i usually camp with for advice but he's deployed. i'm planning on getting a tent, foam pad, sleeping bag, and solar phone charger. i already own clothes, lighter, water bottle, plenty of packed food, and a mora companion (it was on sale for like $14 and i like to get plant and mushroom cuttings) and flashlight. do i need anything else, or is it all just consumerist memes? forgive me if i forgot anything super crucial, i'm retarded (89 IQ). i don't plan on making fire. i just want to hike and sleep. it's a normie campground so i don't need water purifiers, i think. it'll be in southeast oklahoma, sunny and hitting 60F at night. good weather to not go missing? thanks in advance! :)

Get a freestanding tent that has mostly external clips. I can have my tent up with the tarp on in less than 4 minutes and my pack has a pack cover. I've never gone to bed wet.

You also want to "read the storm." If you can (which is more common than not) you can wait for the lull in the rain and set up then.

I wouldn't overthink it, any U lock is going to be pretty hard to cut without huge, heavy duty bolt cutters, if you need more flexibility and range for whatever you're chaining up to then get a metal chain made out of marine grade stainless steel and a big, tough padlock.
Like this guy says >>2720471 kryptonite is a good brand but if you can find a cheaper U lock at a hardware store or online then get that.
>>
>>2720192
Another option is a 'fly-first' tent. They tend to be not free-standing trekking pole tent. There's also always tarping as an option.
