Odd Plant identification

2 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I had not seen this plant in a long time until recently. My dad told me, when i was a small child, that he used to chew this when he was a kid, as a surrogate for tobacco to feel grown up. I ran across it again recently, several states from where I grew up. It's the same appearance, scent, texture, everything that I remember. But I have NO idea what it is. It crushes with a very fresh scent, smelling a bit like carrots when it dries. I have never seen flowers on one of these. The first portion is a stand, roughly six feet in height. The plants are tender and fragrant at a foot or so in height. Region is the Gulf coast and south-east US (the above photographed in central Georgia this past weekend). I have shown the photos to a friend who knows wild plants fairly well, and he is clueless. A coworker is familiar with seeing the plants but has never touched them.

Are you /out/ creative or consumerist? Plz share your opinion and your ideas. I do enjoy looking at outdoor producys , but what I really like is to use things that are simple when I am out. I cannot imagine myself riding a bike with a matching helmet, biking clothes, and special shoes. I just bike with regular clothes. Some camping gear are unnecessary and overpriced. Regular household products work just fine. For example, a zip bag or an empty container with a large opening( like protein powder container) work just as well as water proof cases. One day o couth a fish with a reflective candy wrapper. I still se things that I bought, but I

If i wanted to explore a drain, how would I go about it. Is it possible to get a map of the drains beforehand? Like from a library or city council or something? I have a surveyor friend who has access to maps of the city but I'm not sure how much he can help me. im imagining I'd just need a torch and some ruggid clothes/boots. maybe a mask/filter to not get shit into my face. any ideal torches / shit to look out for?

Is knife throwing a useful skill? Can one throw regular full tang utility knife with any accuracy? Assuming you have no other tools and no wood for spears/bows, would you try knife throwing as last resort for hunting, say, rabbits?

Scratching that itch

11 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
It's the height of backpacking season in my area. I've gone only once this year, back in May, and it's getting impossible to ignore the compulsion to strap on my pack and just go. But I can't. I'm unemployed and I need to apply for work every day, and if I miss a call for an interview, then there goes my chance at finding work. But I crave an /out/ adventure. I want to wake up in my hammock, snooze away the early morning, and roll out of bed to eat a granola bar and see pic related. I want to walk for hours on end carrying my life on my shoulders. I miss it, /out/. How do you scratch that itch? How do you get over wanting to be /out/ so badly but not being able to? tl;dr Can't go /out/, want to go /out/, what do?

Very Specific Fishing Help

26 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I'm aware of the supermegagiant massive fishing thread but I don't want to break up the nice flow that is there. I'm the Wisconsinite who made the "Catfish and Suckers" thread about two/three months ago. I'm back with more complete angry bullshit concerning the cats. So I finally caught some tiny little sumguns on stinkbait and a pretty little treble hook. Im talking like 6-10 inch fish. They're biting good but I think they're all that size. So here goes with the problem >Be me TONIGHT (8/8/2014) >Im bored. Catfishing sounds like an OK idea. MAYBE I CAN TRY THE CUTBAIT AGAIN >Water level is down. Cutbait ready. >Dip it in some chicken blood because its been frozen for a month. >Absorbs it right up and looks like a B.A. catfish bait. >This is my night, im feeling it. 7:30PM >arrive 8:00 PM >Northern Pike strikes cut bait and tears it all to shreds. Thats interesting. >Change it out, keep on trying. >One more pike hits about ten minutes later. >Switch position of bait. 8:22PM >Jingle jingle >I hear the bells of the fish bite. >Take the bell off, grab pole and wait. >FISH IS STILL THERE OH THANK GOD. >Give it time, it was a pretty big chunk of redhorse. >Thinks I can feel the bait in the fish's mouth >give it three more seconds just to be sure. >YEP. ITS THERE I THINK. >Setting hook. >BAT FLIES OUT OF NOWHERE, HITS LINE >PULLS HOOK OUT OF FISH'S MOUTH. >SUNNAVA BITCH GODDAMN IT FUCKING SHIT So here I am. Did I do the right thing in waiting? How the hell do i get the bats to leave me alone? Also, i'm using a single hook, should I be using a large treble hook or something else? I just don't know.

Help identifying pest on plant

2 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So for the past few weeks I've been seeing what appears to be gnats flying around near my plants, thinking they were fungus gnats I let my plants dry out and applied some imid. This didn't seem to do much and I'm still seeing these little things flying around. During this time I've also noticed my plant has not been looking very healthy, after a closer inspection I noticed these small yellowish/white elongated bugs crawling around on the surface, I figure they're about 1 to 1.5mm in length. They look too long to be root aphids and they don't look like springtails to me. After hours of searching I still cant seem to figure out what it is and how to treat, please help me fellow /out/doorsman ! Sorry for shitty pic, I had to take it through a 15x magnifying glass with my phone since I don't have my good camera on me.
