Yeah I was planning on getting these later. I'm going to try camping near some family friends house so that if I run into a sticky situation I would be close to help. I'll probably do this until I get comfortable with camping.

OP the only thing you have is a tick. You'll be fine m8.
>>
You're more than likely fine. Look for the bite area to develop a rash that looks similar to a bullseye. That is a sign of Lyme Disease.

But you're most likely fine. No need to worry too much
>>
>>21527
i know in all honesty im probably over reacting. its my first tick, i don't wanna get Lyme or something, like rocky moutains

Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread

If a self-inflating sleeping pad with open cell foam develops a leak does it still have any insulating ability?

Some, but not an appreciable amount.

How do you guys carry your camera when/out/ ?

>>21497
Usually take a cheapish 35mm these days, keep it in a zip lock bag!

Should i spunk a bit of money at a sea to summit sleeping bag? Am looking at the spark iii or the micro mciii.

As far as I know, he didn't. Complete shame he got his girlfriend killed with him. I'm pretty sure I remember from the doc or reading something that she wanted to leave and didn't like it there , and he sort of convinced her to stay

Is anyone on /out/ doing something relevant /out/side other than the lads thru hiking?

Anyone crossing Mongolia's steppes on a horse, exploring new tribes on New Guinea, selling vodka on the trans Siberian railway, bare fucking sudanese women behind a tent? Are we all only a bunch of casuals?

The chan is really being raided by bait/globalist/leftard bots.

In case of you being a real person and not just fishing for (you)s then you seriously need to fuck off to whatever safe space you came from.
>>
>>21437
You seriously need to take a step back or two lad. What you just proposed was actually racist AF. It's no secretly held knowledge that what you are doing is basically perpetuating the commonly held belieif amongst Sudanese women that whoring themselves out to foreign U.K. betas will net them a better life. It's really exploitative if you think about it. I'm sure you only think with your pecker though.

I will not post my store location or anything personal information, this is a professional post. That said, I can honestly say it is the best job I have ever had due to the management staff and my coworkers. Everyone is friendly, intelligent, and fun to work with. The management staff work actively on the store floor and keep a casual, friendly atmosphere with their employees.

How is it Montana really like? And I ask this as an European, I have this glorified imagine of a place with crystal clear water, green pine trees, dark grey mountains, few, dispersed people.

Is it worth crossing half world to visit it one day?

That pic is about what I remember from when I was last there, well, that and the constant smell of bovine feces. Also, locals thought I was crazy for going hiking without a sidearm, because mountain lions.

Bee thread? Bee thread.
Just got 2 more hives up and running and hope to get another split in before the end of the year.

>>21114
how much honey do you average per hive and do you do any planting of nectar-rich plants?
>>
>>21115
You can harvest between 30 and 80 lbs of honey per hive per year.
I don't plant any plants intentionally for the bees because the bees will actually fly out 6 miles and return home each day. There is a botanical garden near by and they probably spend a lot of time there.

Anyone interested in bee keeping?
>>
>>21116
I'm planning on getting into beekeeping as soon as I live somewhere other than an apartment. I missed my local beekeeper's association beginner class a couple of months ago, so I'm waiting for the next one to come around.

Any advice or recommended literature for an aspiring apiarist?

How feasable is it to travel across America hitch-hiking. I'm an Anglo /out/ist male and have read about Chris Mccandless. He got around with practically no cash however this was in the 70's/80's. Today is different and I know not much is free these days.

What alternatives to hitchhiking are there. I want to travel from East to West.

Thoughts?

I am actually planning to hitchhike the us, a lot of the information i have got is from hitchwiki which is really good.

I think although it is harder to hitchhike today and a lot harder to jump freights it is easier to connect yourself with people that can help, like workaway.info where people offer bed & board in exchange for work or couchsurfing where you can stay in peoples homes for free, theres also a section on the app for meeting other travellers.
>>
>>20804
differs by region and by state
for example, you'll get harassed by cops for hitch hiking in new jersey

also you can't hitch hike on interstates, so very long distances are hard

>>20806

How easy is it to free load on a freight train?

Not shilling. Gimme one reason why you don't own at least 1 arc'teryx piece of equipment for your outdoor needs. We all know they make far superior products then all the other outdoor brands.

Largest volume training to date last thursday, 10 routes (ranging from 5.6-5.10)for 10 laps each +1 bonus route when some sexy chick wanted to learn how to climb for a total vertical gain of approximately 4k feet, hoping to be in good enough shape to rope solo 39 full length pitches(ranging from 5.9-5.12), not sure I will be ready this year, but good progress is being made!

>half way up route
>sexy chick swimming in creek with her doggos
>back strokes while looking up at me
>perfect tits
>asks if she can try
>yea!
best day ever.
put her on a route with a decently stout top out to a ledge, her little boot shorts quickly stretched and gave way to her 80's style black underwear. exchanged numbers, she wants to go again, pretty sure she is a stripper, also latina, but whatever

It sounds like you got it pretty well figured out but I wouldn't have turned down free acid. For whatever reason that shit is really hard to come by for me.

Yeah being sober around people who are high is pretty shitty man, camping or not. Don't be a trip sitter unless that was your job. It's annoying.
