When I was like 8 years old my friend and I would congregate in this old shack in the woods behind our house. One day we stumbled upon two teenager dudes who had playboy magazines and offered to give them to us if we let them smoke weed in our clubhouse. At the end of the day we would just bury the magazines under some dirt then dig them back up the next day. Then after a couple of weeks of doing this we walked in and saw one of the guys blowing the either. We noped out of there and never returned.

Does /out/ bird watch, hunt or do other activities involving some sort of magnification device? I recently wound up with my late grandfather's old 7x50 InstaFocus Bushnell binoculars and I'm not really sure what to do with them. They seem to work amazingly well ( better than my own ) and I'm going to send them in to see if they need any work.

Another thing is, for a while now, I've really wanted to add a good spyglass to my kit. Pic Related is supposed to be a modernized version of the classic spyglass ( Stanley London's 25x30, they also make...

It's ok

I just carry a pair of small fixed (8 power) Bushmaster binos; scouting out avenues and paths, and all that jazz. Looking for animals and noises I hear in the distance.

Definitely needed.

If I'm hunting, I'll use them to check out the game and what's beyond it if I have an open sighted firearm; if a scope, I'll use binos to look around the game animal to see if there's no one remotely nearby before I put the scope on it.

Many years ago I was gifted a Tasco 516, it was utterly amazing. it had kickass optical clarity, a nice field of view and fair zoom ( comparable to a lot of binos I tried). after years of being dragged around the world part of the plastic body of the eyepiece focussing mechanism developed a fracture, which eventually split. it was a sad day when it finally broke, I'd been carrying it for a good 14 or so years, so the 516s were now out of production and like hen's teeth to source in the UK .

So I'm likely to be moving out of my apartment soon ( hopoefully not into another apartment ) and am thinking of getting a small service dog ( pic related; some farmers near me bread them on the side ) and was thinking it would also be cool to double the dog for tracking. Is there a way I can do this on my own or should I try finding classes? If so, how do I find reputable classes for dog training? Do you have any experiences or advice with your dog that might help somebody in the process of obtaining and training a service/out/ dog?

You and I have had very different experiences with the breed then. I've only ( from memory ) seen a Badger-dog seen a badger-dog attack once: Yesterday when my four YO nephew stepped on one's paw and then tried to approach the dog after it had backed away to "lick its wound."

I won't deny that they can develop back problems and I'm open to other dog options as long as they are small dogs. it just so happens that these dogs are pure-blood, locally bred and affordable; my mother's...

If you want a small /out/ dog, get a terrier of some kind. Rat Terrier, Jack Russel or Border Terriers are all GOAT.

If you want a tracking dog, you need a scenthound though, and not many of them are small http://www.mans-best-friend.org.uk/scenthounds.htm

401 KB,
I'm planning a road trip kind of experience to the west coast of USA with gf and we're going to visit Redwood National Park, Yosemite and Sequoia National Park during that time. We'll be spending 1-3 days on each, the main target being Yosemite. We will visit the national parks in late april.

How cold/snowy is it going to be that time of the year in that area?
How well kept the trails are?
Is there some must have gear that we need?
Any nice places to bunk in?
Anything else absolutely noteworthy?

We are not TOTAL noobs at hiking or /out/...

high country in yosemite and sequoia will still be snowy. specifically in yosemite, glacier point and tuolumne will be unaccessible except on xc skis or snowshoes. half dome cables will be down, so if that was on your ticklist i'd remove it (barring you having the gear and experience to get up there without the stairs). the valley floor will probably be clear of snow. temps could be anywhere from 40-70, weather could be sunny or rainy. but just come prepared and it'll be great- you'll beat the mosquitos, heat, and majority of the tourists, and the falls will be going big.
>>
>>707053
it's going to be that snowy? damn.

do you know if there are any other scenic trails other than the half dome and glacier around yosemite?

I'm not going to name a full list for you because you can Google that but here's what I recommend.

Don't be lazy when setting up camp. Bears are very dangerous. Just because you haven't seen one doesn't mean they aren't nearby. Hand your shit up high on a tree branch. Pick up all your trash. Leaving it in the fire pit before you leave is lazy and stupid.

Wear Nylon underwear, shirts, and pants. Wear a thin pair of dress socks under your hiking socks to prevent blisters. Bring a pair of sandals or crocs to wear at camp to let your...

What is the best tent that ticks all 3 major boxes...
- Lightweight
- Can take a beating/stand up to the elements
- Doesn't cost a fortune

Of course there has to be compromise on one or two of these things, but which tent would be your choice?

Pic related: Alpkit tends to be super good value, but this one is a tad pricey

Good tents are always a bit pricey. It's a mix of expensive fabrics, good fabrication, good engineering, and of course outdoor- and brand bonus making it expensive. Try around a bit and look what kind of things you want to do with it.

If you want one that can stand elements use one that doesn't have large steep walls that can catch winds, and find one that has tent poles that cross each other.

I have a Wechsel Pathfinder Zero G, I know many people hate on Wechsel-Tents but I'm happy with this one.

I know that this is chinese shop and stuff but i have actually got some decent gear from there... So post something cheap that you think is worth buying from aliexpress.... Stove costs 5.20eur and havent had any problems. Super lightweight and cheap

Hey all! I'm looking for a daypack. Mainly for day hikes and just general carrying stuff around in. I've looked a bit but there is so much out there it's confusing, I trust outs opinion.

Prefferably with hip straps and some rigidness and passing to the back. I've been thinking about the Teton oasis 100 as displayed in my pic but idk.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Hit a few thrift stores man. I got an old hydration pack that I love for $3 without the bladder. Been using it for about 5 years... The chest strap broke, so I might be looking for a new one soon. I was just in Target today glancing at some cheap packs and they have some like that for $30 or so, but they felt pretty cheap. If you have a Cabelas near you, they have the Bargain Cave which always seems to have some decent packs with a slight malfunction (at least at mine)

Also, Craigslist. I bought a nice Kelty backpack for $15 from some guy on Craigslist who was moving....

Existentialism. Start there. The more you dig the worse it gets, no cure bro, I've been in the state you're describing for 8 years now. See you on the other side.

I've lived and worked rurally all my life (27 now). Since leaving the daily forced social interaction of education I've slowly become more and more detached as the years go by. In my work I speak to maybe 2 or 3 people a week for a few seconds at most and can go for days where I'll speak to no one but my old man for 5 minutes about work related stuff (we have a small agricultural mechanic shop). I dread heading into town and even more to big cities, it's not that I'm scared of it, I'm just so unused to it. Social skills are certainly something you can lose.
