I can get a 1990 Landcruiser troopy, diesel (non-turbo) with 500,000kms on the clock for $4,000 AUD from a lady at work.
She said it has been religiously serviced. From the pictures she sent me, it looks good for the price. No body rust. She said the fuel pump/injectors were replaced 5 years ago too. She is selling it due to having a second one and not needing this one. This is my dream car for /out/. I am not sure whether or not I should get it? Any opinions?
Dude take this to /n/. Along with bike threads. /out/had gone to utter shit.
Jesus Christ, You're lame.
IT'S LONGER THAN YOU THINK DAD
get a pre purchase inspection done but if you are set on it nothing will stop you
For better or worse I live in Holland now where gun ownership and hunting is HEAVILY regulated. There is good game here nonetheless--wild boar, deer, ducks, geese, rabbits.
I want to learn to hunt. From what I understand this will cost me thousands of dollars and will require I take a series of safety courses. On top of this each year the state sends one of their goons to any gun owners house to check on their gun storage. In spite of all this I have an interest, particularly in duck hunting, but boar and deer if possible. I want to learn to earn my meat the honest way. The problem is, it's really hard to 'enter' into the practice as I have zero experience. Just how hard is it to learn to hunt? And I mean the right way with butchering, having a retriever dog, and everything. Luckily my girlfriend is wants a lab and is fine with me training it to be a hunting dog. I don't want to larp and just daydream but it's so damn hard to get a sense of the scope of things without spending thousands of dollars and diving in.
Just do the course retard. It's not like you won't be buttfucked in nine different ways when they catch you poaching, kankermongool.
Also, have you ever tried, you know, googling stuff? I will never understand why the generation that grew up with omnipresent and always available internet is not able to fucking search stuff? If you're dutch you probably also at least understand german, there's tons of stuff on youtube from hunting schools where they talk about all important hunting topics.
Also, hunting dogs are extremly well trained by actual trainers. Labs can bring birds and stuff, but for going after deer and boar even a trained Lab isn't that good.
I eat lots of squirrels. for the legs, cut at the ball joint or shoulder blade, get 4 chicken wing sized pieces. you should have ribs, then back, then pelvis. Ribs are only useful for stock, not enough meat. The"backstrap" is between the last rib and the pelvis, you can cut it off the spine, no bones there so it's dead simple and it's the best part of the squirrel even though it's only a bite or two.
>>1639254 >If you're dutch >OP literally says "I live in Holland now" implying he moved there
I will never understand why the generation that grew up with free public education and omnipresent and always available information is not able to read a basic fucking sentence.
Shit I should not get into arguments when tired. My point still stands, though.
Do it anon no matter what the costs. It's a fun past time, it gets you out, and it gets you doing something we were built to do.
Anyone here had a dicey run in with animals while /out/? Such as being stalked, attacked, approached or even harassed by something?
I've had a friend's cup get swiped by a raccoon. Another time I was on a trail and walked into a lone hiker who said he stumbled upon a mama bear with cubs, ended up getting charged by the mama bear (possibly a bluff charge, being a black bear and all, but could have been real considering the cubs). Mountain lions freak me out. One could be stalking you and you'd never know it. Pic unrelated, the opossums are bro tier.
I was hunting squirrels with my dad when I was about 10 or so near an abandoned strip mine. While we were out, he decided to go a bit off the trail to check a spot for ginseng, which he often dug for extra money. I was messing around, being a kid and shit, when I got a strong urge to freeze and look down. Under my left foot was a baby copperhead. It kept trying to twist around to bite me but luckily it didn’t have enough room. We were poor and only had one gun between the two of us so I had to keep it pinned until my dad walked back up the hill and shot it.
The lesson I learned that day saved my life ten years later in the ME from getting stung by a scorpion.
I nearly got caught going down on a deer in a national park and had to abandon over $600 worth of gear
Caught by it's husband or a park ranger?
>>1636514 >I've had a friend's cup get swiped by a raccoon.
Yeah, that does sound pretty dicey. Did he dead?
Ayeup, ill chime in
I was nearly attacked by cows earlier this year. It was late summer and I went for a walk along one of my usual routes. Partway you pass through a field owned by a farmer and it regularly has cows and sheep in, no big deal. They stay out of my way and I stay out of theres.
Well this time it was a bit different
>Enter field >Follow my usual route down past the tussock bogs and around >See cow herd meandering towards me >Change route so as to give cows a wide berth >Not scared, just worked with them in the past and like to give half-ton beasts there own space >Some young ones in the herd >Some of the young ones see me >Start coming over >Something about their movements sends me to DEFCON 2 >Not the curious cow movements >Aggressive and frisky >Make a right angle turn and head up the ridge >4 cows close now snorting and tossing their heads >Lead one starts dancing side to side >ohshit.jpg >Usually this signifies a charge >Start talking calmly whilst continuing to walk away from the herd and cows >Cross the ridge, LOS broken >Instantly make a turn and speed up a bit >Heading towards some swampy pools and hawthorn bushes >And, more importantly, the closest edge >4 younglings steam over the ridge and follow me >Keep a calm pace going, keep talking in a calm voice >No panic or aggression showing >Belligerent Bovines follow me, getting very close and continuing to threaten charges >Heart is doing more BPM than an MG42 does RPM >Palms are sweaty >Somehow managing not to run or break the act >Getting close to the fence >Cows are within 15 feet the entire time >Suddenly hear a bellow >Herd streams over the ridge further down >Big angry looking one stands on the ridge and bellows again >Aggressive youngsters turn and trot back to the herd >Complete my escape
Ive worked with cows before and only once have I come as close to feeling as scared as I did then, when I was out walking and a calf wandered over to me and the mother perceived me as a threat.
From a recent Backpacking Light email:
>REI is in a terrible bind right now (not really, but it's a fun way to start an email). >They have two million pieces of inventory to get rid of, amongst almost 12,000 SKUs (i.e., individual product/color/size combos). Yeah, I'm actually serious about that. >Of course, this isn't unique to REI. It's consumerism du jour for every brand on the market today. >I have an important revelation for you: >It's not up to you to solve retailer inventory turnover problems. >Instead, it is within your control to:spend responsibly don't rack up credit card debt don't consume more than what you need don't buy gear that doesn't work for you If I preached anything other than these messages, then I'd be preaching against the core values of Backpacking Light. >That's why I put togetherthis guide to the 2019 REI sale. I'm a huge fan of REI simply because they have the power and clout to help us conserve public lands, foster enormous amounts of trail work, and help us advance our industry in a meaningful way. Kudos, REI. >All I'm saying is this: go ahead, shop the sale. But do so wisely, intentionally, and carefully. >There's not a lot of gear that you actually need Begin arguing.
>>1640948 >the great depression
Its not stealing if its from a bank. They create money out of thin air so you don't really need to worry about tube ethics of it.
Yes, the Great Recession did indeed drive me into my own personal great depression.
>>1641014 >company announces it will be closed on a day >W-WAAAH! WHY AREN'T THEY CLOSED TWO WEEKS EARLIER ThAN thEY SAID THEY'D BE!
>>1641073 >Their “20% off one full priced item” has a million conditions
>Go in >buy full priced item at 20% off
Can you even shop? Would you rather pay $5 instead of $4?
at what point does muddy water dehydrate you? even mildy muddy water for me tastes like death and idk if the puddles that look like coffee would hydrate me, do they?
i see ty i will worry less from now on thank you
You shouldn't be drinking muddy water unless you're desperate. And yes, it does hydrate you.
Muddy water will dehydrate you at the point where you get dysentery from your poor decisions
Why wouldn’t you filter the water, at least rudimentarily, with a bandana or other piece of cloth. You’ll still give yourself a case of the shits, but at least you won’t be drinking mud
this thread is dumb ass hell, ill even respond to it just because of how retarded it is
Thoughts on Kelly Kettles?
I just watched a video with a chick with big tits that featured a rocket stove design if 4 cinder blocks that would go great with the Kelly Kettle!
Plus, tits man!
The Kelly Kettle is basically a rocket stove, only instead of insulation that makes the flue gasses hotter and helps them burn more efficiently, it sucks the heat from the flue gasses reducing fuel efficiency. Though, that reduction in efficiency is made up by the way the Kelly Kettle heats the liquid. Removing the base, of the kettle, and placing it over your own rocket stove, which has properly insulated walls, will be the most efficient option.
>cinder blocks to make a rocket stove
The walls need to be insulated for it to be a proper rocket stove, fyi. I guess tits can make up for that fact.
>>1640861 >I guess tits can make up for that fact.
It's idiot simple, tits at 7:38:
Could boil gallons in minutes with a Kelly Kettle!
I would try to keep those cinder blocks dry or they will crack or explode.
Yo can also cook a baked potato in the engine well a vehicle. Doesn't make it a stove.
She is so beautiful. How do I get over my love for deer to hunt and butcher them to fill my freezer?
all my friends went hunting and killed deer this year and I just keep getting sad seeing the dead pictures of them :(
cows are female, bulls are male
Nature is brutal. Animals eat other animals. Usually in a brutal fashion with no care for feelings. And you are part of nature, not something separate. Killing a prey animal in a nice painless way is already better than most of what the rest of nature has to offer.
Have you ever made a sandwich with deer meat?
I wouldn't worry about it, how about a skinwalker gf anon...
does anybody have a reliable lighter or something similar? I'm looking for something that will light even when it's windy / wet(ish). Also it should be sustain- and durable for when society/civilization has gone to shit. I know there are a lot of very common lighters one can get at every gas station, but normaly they don't last very long or are shit during bad weather. Sry for my english, it's not my first language.
>>1641316 > refuel weekly and put in a new flint every couple months > too much maintenance
>>1641908 >compared to a bic
In my experience those Chinese jet lighters are not reliable. Just buy a bunch of cheap disposable BIC lighters; they always work.
I've seen people selling "high-end" jet lighters but I find it hard to justify the price. A lighter like your Jobon pic related probably costs $10. The Chinks sell jet lighters for as little as $2-5, so $80 for one just seems excessive.
>be me, live in desert >use a zippo over everything >take petroleum jelly >put a thin layer around lighter insert >go an entire month without refueling Come on guys, you should know this trick already.
What makes more sense for an hiker to carry, a fixed or a folding knife?
See the other anon that can't follow a conversation thread
ive done this and fucked it up and made it unusable
i dont know what stones to get or anything, ive never held genuine leather in my life either
>>1641710 >gets into the liner
Clean your knife then, sperg. It's not really difficult to find an easy to disassemble folder, and even if yours isn't then its not much of an issue to pluck a the few hairs that manage to get in out. The only case I could see this being a serious problem in is if your knife has absolutely dogshit tolerances and has a gap significant enough to let shit fill in too deeply to extract.
I never used leather but I use 400 for a couple strokes then 600 lightly for a couple then score the blade on wood. the angle is important. I have a sharpener from chinese website banggood it works more than fine. I also have an old ezelap honing steel
I meant this for you
Need to buy an Opinel from a shop in the UK, Decathlon no longer sell them, Where do I go?
Another cheap but "usable" knife will suffice too
Victorinox make fantastic chef knives but utter garbage pocket folders. The SAK is the most overrated piece of cheapshit junk you can buy short of resorting to Chinesium from Chinky Express dot com.
an SAK is stlll better than a surrender monkey knoife that's even worse than dollar store chineseium stuff.
is this guy for real
how the fuck can you hate a SAK
>>1641832 >XC90 >worse than chineseium
It's basically the same as 1095 in composition. You'd have to be retarded to make bait this shit.
You'd have to be a cucked surrender monkey to shill your shitty gay knife that hard.
