there's trash if you go to poor black neighborhoods, and if you go to poor white neighborhoods

Can anyone suggest protection for someone is unable to have a firearm for protection for the subjects listed?

I am considering a Byrna pepperball pistol. Would that be an improper choice? I already have bear spray and a horn. Would a Byrne be the icing on the cake more effective of both?

?

And if not, are there any better alternatives?

anyone know if Crazy Neighbor died by MAID?
the circumstances surrounding his death are strange, or opaque..Steve Wallis stopped uploading content a while ago and made an announcement on twitter about crazy neighbor suffering from terminal illness (presumably, as a result of the motorcycle accident he was in a couple months ago). And then a month after the announcement and the cryptic memorial video, crazy neighbor is gone.. right on schedule? What the hell? Wallis uploaded a video announcing his death, but skirted the cause of death.. no mention of “natural causes” or any specificity anywhere. Next to zero details about what terminal illness Glenn was suffering from… something about this stinks.. please tell me they didn’t MAID crazy neighbor.

It literally means "you aren't allowed to directly interact with nature as a living, breathing human being as your ancestors did, you have to treat planet Earth like it's a museum and you're just an unwelcome guest". It's the most extreme and bizarre shit I've ever heard, and the people espousing this philosophy are always the most un-buschrafty neon red and blue polyester clad yuppie urbanites who are the most dependent upon industrial society and agriculture which together constitute 99.9% of the total human threat to the global ecosystem. These people literally think some guy in the woods cutting down a tree with a hatchet and taking a shit is some kind of existential threat. Presumably they also believe men can have babies.

Sorry if this isn't the right board, I'm not sure, but I don't use many others and I feel like you guys can answer this best. I'm looking to buy a brand new mower for the first time tomorrow, can you guys help me out? I was looking at the Toro recycler line, but I'm hearing mixed reviews about it. I'm looking to keep it around 500 bucks but can go a little over that. My yard isnt that big, couple hundred square feet. I'm just looking for something reliable preferably with self drive for when my wife wants to mow. What mower do you use? Also, any tips for getting rid of milkweed? My yard is a little overgrown and at some point it creeped in. I get a lot of biodiversity in my yard though so that's cool, sometimes I get morels too. Sorry for rambling, just killing time until I can click post.

Buy a reel mower. They're cheap, easy to maintain, and it's basically the same effort to mow as a gas mower. Anyone who disagrees is a pussy who's afraid of real yard work. If you are a pussy who's afraid of yardwork then maybe a robot mower is more your speed.

I agree unless you live near the woods and have a lot of sticks/pinecones or have let your yard get overgrown. Then it's an exercise in torture as you proceed to stop on every stick.

Sticks and pinecones definitely slow down the progress, but I still prefer it. Plus you can clear most of that away by dethatching your lawn.

The property I own, has the edge of a natural pond on it. The pond used to not be on my property at all except during flooding. But the pond has gotten bigger and there's now a shallow cove that's formed on the edge of my property. I've been fishing it, just the issue is my boomer neighbour is claiming ownership over the entire pond and says I can't fish it and said he's given me a trespassing warning. What are my options?

Sue him for getting his water onto your property, blocking your access to the dry land underneath. If he won't remove his water and restore access to your land beneath it, he owes you sex.

>>2722263
In many states you can’t own water, just access to water. If you don’t need to trespass to reach the water, he has no recourse. Most states put their rules about this sort of thing in their fishing and hunting regulation guides.

Traditionally such border disputes are settled with war
I recommend besieging your neighbour's property, isolate him from his supply chain (stinger strips outside his mailbox, cut the cables into his house, etc), and starve him out
If that's unsuccessful then launch an attack, seize his home and goods, ransom his life to his family, and take his daughter as your bride to consolidate your conquest
>>
>>2722263
Fuck your neighbor. Consult with a lawyer and continue to fish in the pond. Make him spend as much money as you can. Really drag out the court battle to bleed him for as much as possible and then when he loses the court battle countersue for the cost of your court fees. Fuck him. He doesn't own a whole body of water just because part of it is on his land.

I actually go /out for a purpose. I hunt and feed my family unlike you larpers who just go look at trees and mountains lol

I used to be a tentfag and talked shit about RV as well. But the tent has way too many issues especially when hunting. I'm not talking about backpacking tents, but wall tents at base camp. I still use my backpacking tent which is more of a bivy if Im on some elk.

Hunting out a tent, I found that Its very difficult to keep anything dry once wet. It's difficult to heat, wood stoves require stoking all night, propane heaters are a moist heat and doesn't last long plus you have to lug 20lb tanks with you, diesel heaters seem cool but that's another piece of gear to carry, plus diesel. Safety is also a concern, last year at elk camp, we had a grizzly walk by our tent at night, sniffing around. We had our 10mm's on us, and kept our food 100y away, but still it's not cool knowing you have 1mm of canvas between you and a grizz.

Having to shit and/or piss outside in freezing temp is miserable as well.

Lastly, tent plus all the gear, coolers, etc take up all the room in my truck's bed. Makes it a pain to pack and unpack camp. I'm also hauling dirt bikes,.which increases the difficulty of Tetris required to fit everything. Moving camp took forever, not what you want when you're hunting.

So I bought a toy hauler RV. I can fit all my gear, dirt bikes, side by side, ATV whatever makes sense for my hunt. I have a heater, AC, bathroom,.shower with 100g tank. I don't need to keep my food prep 100y away, I can just cook inside. Piss inside at night, shit in a nice warm toilet. Be nice and warm in the morning, make some coffee and oats, get dressed,.go outside, hop in whatever toy I brought and hit the trail head for my hunt. It boosts morale, increases my performance in the field.

If the spot isn't good, I just put away anything loose, put my toy(s) inside, hook up my truck and haul it to another spot.

Problem?

I need a lightweight chair and the internet is telling me either the REI chair, the Helinox Zero or the Nemo Moonlight Elite
Does anyone have any experiences with these? Which should I get, I want to grab something soon
I'm not very big so I considered the REI chair, but I see people complaining about stability
Are they just fat? I'm a regular manlet, would the REI chair be alright?

The Nemo Moonlite Elite is great, but way too expensive. The groundpad is an excellent touch though.
The REI Flexlite Air is pretty good, but it squeezes your ass a little.
The Helinox Chair zero is more comfortable than the REI chair, but more expensive.

Personally, I'd go with the REI chair. You can always return it and go for one of the other ones if you want.

To keep it brief, I'm in my late 20s and my circle of friends have typically been indoor types that prefer to do things indoors, like watch movies, go out to eat, or play video games. Perhaps it's just my friend group, but I have this impression that people around my age can't be bothered to go /out/ beyond a mile or two long hike--and even then it's a struggle or just an excuse to smoke weed in a different setting. I can't imagine getting any of my friends to seriously gear up and go out on a camping trip where they have to carry their back to the campsite. Girls seem more into the idea, but in reality they'll just slow down my pace (well, a lot of guys would too).

Why do you guys think this is? We're in the best shape of our lives, somewhat, and it feels wasteful to spend it all indoors.

Every woman I've gone hiking with has been fine if it's less than three miles, but I want to do long, several day excursions on the ridge. I think I'd get pretty annoyed after several hours stopping more often than I'd like to. I always let the slowest ones set the pace, too.

outings doesnt require friends or company, infact its best done alone.
i never had problems getting someone to come along, but they always do something i dont like. talk all.the time, waaay to drunk, never agree on my campsite, walk to fast/slow, complain about weather...
so i just go alone and tease them with snaps instead.
would rather find some female company than bringing any of my male friends hiking again. dont care if they do it for instabook and facegram, atleast they do it.

Strange. I'm regularly going /out/ with my mates.
Usually short trips (a day hike on a weekend, a couple of days camping when our time off lines up) but sometimes longer trips (a month on the AT, the O trek in Argentina, etc).
