You have enough money for either a canoe or a kayak. Which do you choose and why?
>>2063095I've been using the same canoe for 25 years. It has stayed tied up outside in Northern Ontario all year round and has been abused about as much as you can abuse a canoe, by adults and kids alike. It's never had a hull crack, sprung a leak, busted a seat, or otherwise needed repairs.I don't care how well manufactured an inflatable boat is, it will never be as enduring and reliable as a well built canoe.
>>2063108you cant canoe into the surf and the open ocean buddy. enjoy your northern ortario flat lakes
>>2063120I don't live anywhere near the ocean so that's not really an issue for me.
>>2063121exactly. youre trying to prove that canoes are superior yet you dont have experience with the full breadth of outdoor settings to make that assertion
>>2063128I'm not trying to prove that canoes are superior. Obviously it depends on use case. Just that they're more reliable.

Anons, just moved to Seattle for work. Here for two months before I fly out east coast for training with the gubmint. Then I come back. I have my fly fishing gear with me minus waders. I have a 3wt, 5 wr, and 8wt rod and reel, along with a lot of flies, ranging from bass to trout to salmon. What are some areas to go to while I'm here these two months? I'd love to get salmon, but not sure if I should just get a guide for that desu

Is Canada the most /out/ country?
>>2062781yeah eh! its different than Cape Breton for sure, but there is some overlap due to the geographic proximity, with scottish tunes or variations of them being part of the island repretoire. the crisp and snappy scottish style is of course what Cape Bretoners are known for, whereas the Magdalen islands is much like the Gaspe a little further up the coast and west PEI where theres a heavy french influence, the bowing is more of a slurred sawstroke. And they do the double tap with their feet rather than just a simple foot stomp. they do this interesting stutter effect where certain notes are only lightly touched, so it moves the emphasis back and forth from the down to the upbeat. i think the rhythms are informed by the ocean much like most maritime fiddle seems to be

>>2062779Peat is non renewable resource. I dont like that it destroys ecosystemsMay try pressing your own pellets using coco coir and clay or what comes to your mind. A metal soil press (" soil maker " )costs 15$ incl shipping on ali express. I have never seen these used but I dont get why it wouldnt work. If you have a friend with a 3d printer you could ask him to print you that, all you had to buy would be a spring and soil
>>2062501>>2062366The root depth directly affects plant growth speed, height and if it grows any larger or not. Just the size alone. If you want to grow in containers that size it is fine, if they were 15-20cm in depth. Try it for yourself, youll learn an important lesson.

>>2062267>WA hereAbsolute lie. I always smell that stinky degenerate smell on hikes.
Stop being hysterical. Also, try hiking somewhere besides your home state.
>>2062954thats skunk cabbage, its everywhere in the northwest dumbass
If you have a problem with this, i heard the leafs have som clean fresh air

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. What you'll need: 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? Fill it with less tobacco 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 filling your pipe this way:https://youtu.be/0XHYPso7TXsOld thread >>2023124Come on in and get comfy.
>>2062834Have someone who is over 21 buy it for you in person or online?Such a stupid law. Especially with pipe tobacco and cigars.
>>2062863Bollocks. Well... corncob pipe it is then. Really doubt I could convince any family I have to the joys of pipe smoking. I'll get that pipe eventually. What worries me more is getting something to smoke with it. Tobacco's a no-go, so any recommendations for other herbs?
>>2062834you can make a pipe with a chunk of maple or cherry, a dremel, and a drill. the herbs you can buy at your local spice market or even the grocery store.
Thinking about buying this pipe. Thoughts? Or should I buy a Lakota style "peace pipe"

Serb anon here, i bought a buck knives folding tree saw for innawoods trip this summer. I saw buck was a popular US knife brand so i thought its good quality for 20$. But wheen i unfolded it i saw the bladr has "China" written. Anybody used this saw and is it good despite chink steel?
>>2062621Definitely shennae... she thicc
>>2062835Remember when she showed everyone her butthole
>>2062839i don't remember, can i get a qrd?
>>2062561That's called tamahagane and it's used in katana blades. Not all jap steel is tamahagane but you can rest assured that even disposable shit jap steel is infinitely better than any chink pig iron. The japs discovered molecular metallurgy 1000yrs ago
>>2061391it'll be fine anon
Why do some people hate them so much? Are they harmful in a way I am not aware of? I use them sometimes and they feel pretty helpful. I've often used them as a way of holding up a tarp or for hanging clothing to dry.
>>2062905people on this board prefer to complain about things. if you like them and find utility in them, use them. i don't always bring them, but I can't imagine hating them.
>>2062905They are great for long distance hiking, they save your knees, and can dual purpose them as tarp/tent poles. If you use them on day hikes, you will probably look like a dweeb unless you are carrying a lot of weight or old/injured.
>>2063052>If you use them on day hikes, you will probably look like a dweebI use them on day hikes and they basically let you speedwalk
>>2063052Ehh, I use mine on day hikes if I'm expecting a lot of elevation gain or snow, but I usually keep them stowed untill going down hill then.
I prefer knee braces and sometimes a staff of birch (for wizard powers and balancing in water and on fallen trees)
>>2062140you need to cool that tone down buddy
>>2062140Cool it with the anti-black racism pal
>>2062836Any oil. I prefer mineral oil as my general purpose wipedown oil. I keep a facecloth impregnated with it in a gallon ziploc. Olive oil is fine too. Even wd40 if thats all you have.Gonna do this same process on some moto handlebars cuz they powder coated em so thick that they're unusable. The controls/brake/clutch/etc doesn't even fit despite the std 7/8" diameter of the barz
>>2063093Oh ya i forgot to mention: get the steel polished with fine sandpaper/wool and clean with isopropanol to remove all oil and debris. If you used metal polish you need a good soak in lye or concentrated castille soap to remove residual hydrocarbons. During the rust bluing, wear gloves to protect yourself and also to avoid leaving fingerprints that will come out in the final finish
/knife/ general All Knife related questions go here.A Knive is made from steel, so the composition of the steel is the deciding factor of sharpness, durabilityetc.Stainless steels are usually inferior to carbon steels, stay clear of 420 and 440 steel. 440c is okay.>I just want a knife thats sharp and cheapMora Pro c 15$
>>2062858>single carbon*simple carbon
>>2062858See>>2055901>>2055899>>2055897I am so impressed by the 3v on my knife.
>>2060089I have always had the most success with edge trailing. I did not read through the whole comments section but the manner in which he was blunting/rolling the edges did not seem competitive to real life usage to me.>>2060094I have never had to resteel five minutes later using edge trailing.At the end of the day, whatever works for you works for you. Collect all the data you can, then apply it and stick with what works best for your knife in your hands with your honing steel.
>>2062998> never had to resteel five minutes laterIf for some reason my strokes got sloppy or I stropped too long and left or made a new flappy micro burr that feels ok initially, but after a bit of use reveals that it wasn't steeled correctly and so it has to be touched up again, not always but enough that I prefer to start with trailing strokes, but always with finish edge leading, I never get flappy edges when doing edge leading, micro chipped maybe but never flappy.
>>2062809No. It can happen after the extra couple hours of another tempering cycle and can sometimes by induced by stress, which tempering wouldn't prevent. Multiple tempering cycles are a "best practice" for carbon steels as well, and has nothing to do with retained austenite. Cryo is meant to mitigate RA, not an extra 2 hours in the oven
Coming to a trail near you! There is no escape, you will be assimilated.
It's not like this in a lot of places in Alaska easily accessible thru Anchorage
>>2058117Just got back from the Grand Canyon last week, and your pic is true for the rim and the first mile of the trails. Fortunately, the first few ice-covered switchbacks filtered out most of the other tourists. I was able to have a nice serene lunch behind a boulder at 3 mile point. I'm sure in the summer it's WAY more crowded, but going to parks in the 'off' season is the best way to go, I've found.

>>2063064Probably not. Color is probably due to your light spectrum and those leafs decay after your main fan leafs form. Since you're probably using some faggot trash soil you won't needs to start correcting deficiencies until flowering.
Admittedly, I bought tablets for my bug out bag. How do they stack up versus the lifestraws? Should I suffer from buyers remorse? The impression I get is that tablets are qualitatively superior, but less convenient. Pic unrelated.
>>2062945Sawyer you squeeze into a bottle or carry the blatter of water with you. They have a straw attachment as well if that's your thing. Lifestraw you have to bend over and suck from the water source and you don't have the ability to carry water way from the source.
>>2062988Man I was excited when the befree came out but the bladders all suck for it. Smart water bottles are indestructible and so is my evernew dirty bag.
>>2063000A bug out bag will have stuff in it that a normal bag would not have, hence why I talked about making an outdoor kit, than having it staged near a spot that bug out insert would be good for. So for my insert, I got contact and addresses for friends and family, it has important documents for insurance purposes, a lot more ammo for self defense, water spigot key, breaking and entering tools like mini crow bar and lock pick tools, some other odds and ends. The bug out bag is just to move you from Point A to B, you're not gonna be going to living out in the woods cause every one else would do the same. If it's some huge wide area range, you're gonna want an INCH bag, not a bug out bag. When my family and I had to flee during the Soviet / Afghan war, we didn't have a fancy bag, it took us two weeks to get to safe spot. Food, water, shelter, protection, you don't need a lot to survive.
>>2063005Only time I find the smart bottles to break, is if it lands right on the head of it, the filter breaks. I want to get a few of those bags, heard great things and they take up zero room when empty.
>>2062934I work for a major water purifier brand, and have sold water purification/ filtration for over 8 years prior to that. I’m intimately familiar with lifestraw and sawyer.Both are garbage. Lifestraw is an impractical unit, and unless you get something like the flex it’s a waste of money because you cannot store filtered water.Sawyer is extremely popular, but the membranes they use are cheap, and they have highly inflated claims for lifespan on their filters. Don’t believe the claims that they can filter hundreds of thousands of gallons. The guy who owns sawyer is also a massive prick.The katadyn befree is a good option. It has realistic lifespan numbers, a good quality membrane, and good science behind it. I’ve met the Swiss engineers who design their filters and they really know their shit. Id also suggest something like the MSR trail shot.Of all the water filtration brands only 3 have R&D teams who take testing and claims seriously. >Katadyn>MSR>LifesaverYou’ve probably never heard of the last one, but they’re out of the UK and make very high end purifiers, mostly in larger formats and not so good for a light bugout bag. Life straw and sawyer both use cheap Korean or Chinese membranes and don’t actively develop new technology, instead they license whatever becomes available.
