I want to buy a bike and only have 150 dollars. I want it to last around a year, after that I would be willing to buy a more expensive bike. What bikes do you recommend?

Hey /out/. I am going urban exploring today and I need to get up a 2m wall. There is a balcony directly above the wall. I am thinking of throwing rope around the balcony and then rapelling up the wall. Does this sound possible?

Maybe some canuck anons are available for a discussion on burgers outdoorsing in the provinces. I'm planning a trip for just a week to Ontario in July. We'll be seeing friends in Sudbury and heading north a ways for hiking and fishing. Questions: >Land use From what I understand most of the public land in northern ON is crown land, and outside of provincial parks non-residents can pay for a camping permit and hang a hammock wherever, right? In the states you'd have to get landowner permission or do the whole outdoors-on-rails national park thing. Is there really as much empty wild land as there appears to be? Some more links to detailed land use maps I haven't seen so far might help >Licensing So we'll each need to buy an outdoors card and an 8-day fishing tag? Which tag will we need for (hopefully) catching dinner for a couple nights? Conservation or sport? I sometimes like to supplement my packed food with squirrels and rabbits too but fuck that $120 CAN tag

Very interesting series, more of a natural history + craft perspective than the edgy entertainment style of other shows. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th6EOlLK0DA

What are the benefits of wearing a special camo/and or ghillie suit when hunting deer? I've done well wearing nothing but plain brown chinos and other earthy tones, but there seem to be an enclave of hunters who insist that I'm doing it wrong. They have also suggested that I buy some kind of scent masking spray. Is all of this really necessary? I mean, the hunter gatherers of antiquity were able to feed themselves without all of these modern crutches, so why can't we? Of course, their success rates were low, but wouldn't a compound bow with near perfect accuracy give you a sufficient advantage? These same people also insist that I use a blind and purchase a range finder in order to maximize my hunting experience.

How do you recommend I kill mice? They're chewing through my food and shit and frankly, they're dirty fucking animals.

Hello /out/ I'm a poor Arizona geology major with a shoe conundrum. You see, I have a pair of 5+ year old Hi-Tec hiking boots, and they're starting to fall apart. Now that wouldn't be a problem, but I'm going on a month long /sci/trip to Michigan soon. This trip is all about dendrochronology, so I'll be spending time out in the woods, screwin' trees, and camping for a majority of it. That being said I'm looking into two boots from REI. They're both Hi-Tec, and from the REI outlet store cause I don't have a lot of spending cash, here they are: http://www.rei.com/product/875770/hi-tec-lima-hiking-boots-mens-2014-closeout, and http://www.rei.com/product/875769/hi-tec-flagstaff-waterproof-hiking-boots-mens-2014-closeout. Should I look into the Waterproof boots, or the regular boots. I'm leaning towards the regular boots cause I'm in southern AZ and open bodies of water/wet are hard to come by most of the time. But if these choices are terrible, like really really terrible are there any $75 ish boots from REI that are better. TL;DR Waterproof vs Normal boots ? Are these Hi-Tec boots okay ? If not what are some good cheap boots (preferably from REI) ?

Any French /out/casts here? I'm Spanish and I'm planning on a little trip this summer to the Landes area. The plan is: surf all day, eat in the car, sleep in the woods. So I have to ask, what's the camping legislation in France? Will the gendarmes fuck my over if they see my car parked overnight close to a beach? It's pretty much illegal to 'free camp' anywhere in Spain, so I'll take anyting as a positive.

Survival Situation.Rougly 5... 21 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Survival Situation. Rougly 5 acre island in the san juans. Your stranded, what you have on you is a fishing rod, a fillet knife, gallon milk jug modified to be a crude baler, a few empty pop cans. Your boat is wrecked and assume you need to survive for 7 days in this situation. The island you have been stranded on is devoid of any large game, some river otters and mink keep to the shadows around the coast. The water is too cold to make an escape without risking hypothermia, theres a bounty of fish in the surrounding kelp beds but you only have 1 lure and theirs a risk of losing it on the kelp. Several edible plants are on the island like oregon grape and selal. Its summer and most ground wood is dry so firewood is common, but this means water is scarce. No springs or fresh water sources are on the island and the likelyhood of rain is slim. So sc/out/s in this HIGHLY hypothetical situation, what is your initial course of action? How do you supply yourself with a steady caloric and fluid consumption for the 7 days?

This is the closest board to /gardening/ i could find. So ive been doing some landscaping and stuff, and putting down new compost/topsoil. Only this stuff i used stank like hell for some reason as soon as i opened the bag (like piss/ammonia?). Bit surprising but i carried on. Wasnt long before i noticed i was coughing a bit and now my throat hurts and i generally feel like shit. What the fuck happened to me? Fumes coming off the compost or something?
