Any 4x4 gearheads here?

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?

Learning to Hunt

No.1638638 ViewReplyOriginalReport
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.

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.

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.

She is so beautiful. How do I get over my love for deer to hunt and butcher them to fill my freezer?

Reliable lighter

No.1638922 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hey Guys,

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.

What makes more sense for an hiker to carry, a fixed or a folding knife?

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
