Hey /out/, /k/ here.
Would combat-style boots such as pic be used in lieu of actual hiking boots? Or should I bite my lip, spread my wallet, and let go of my dreams of going full STALKER innawoods?

If you're going to get combat boots at least get something decent.

The bushcraft mind set is that you carry the tools you need and not much else. What would happen if your tarp / tent fucked up? Its a more long term ideology.

(8) Stupid olive prunings I took in late September still show no roots. Added a willow stick from the garden because it apparently encourages root growth in other cuttings, but it only developped roots itself and is sprouting massively. Also added more privet cuttings 2 weeks ago (but I know they take forever), as well as a cypress one a few days ago, let's see how those will do

Hey /out/ I'm working on getting a source of wool blankets and hats from peru. its alpaca wool products as per my search. its really cheap compared to anything you will be able to source in the US its as good and better then standard sheep's wool. and if you're allergic to sheep's wool alpaca is a great alternative.

Currently waiting for my source [a friend of mine that I trust] to find some he can buy in markets and then send off to me. the cost of each product will be determined by each shipment and total cost of each unit.

So would anyone...

How do I break it to my family that I want to get into hunting?

Both parents are pretty anti-gun in general. Family never owned a gun. Only thing we had was a pump air rifle for squirrels that were getting fucking with our roof. Once my dad figured out it was raccoons, he stopped shooting squirrels and used have-a-heart traps on the coons. Mom went insane when my dad bought me a toy revolver watergun when I was little.

I'm moved out now and in college. I participated in a trapping seminar at my university and helped skin a coyote. Saw raccoons, beavers, and...

I feel like starting a hobby of gold prospecting. I feel like knowing the equipment is easy and even finding gold but hard part is finding a place to look for gold, as well as asking permission to use private land, using the BLM records, staking claims and all that.

I live in Northen Virginia and my peliminary research pretty much states the first gold mining in the US was actually done right here on foot hills edges of the Shanendoha.

I was doing some test panning in the upper Potomac at a friends house and found a few flakes a month ago but nothing really worth...

sounds like you know this, but mineral rights are a serious fucking deal, so do your research before you step on someone's goes. claims are a matter of public record, but i don't know where to get them. start at the county building, maybe? they could probably at least tell you where you need to go to find out.

I'd recommend starting with bouldering as it is cheaper to start. You plan on gym climbing or actually being /out/?

I recently upgraded to pic related for a harness. I have a cheaper BD harness and it was way uncomfortable to hang in for any length of time. The DMM is a world of difference.

The bag itself, for those who haven't seen one. The strap can be unfurled and used as a waist belt or attached to the 'D rings' on top above the grab handle and used as a shoulder strap.
