I was walking with a good fren yesterday and we ended up walking about 11 kilometers just through our neighborhood.
Pic related is that compared to my activity for the past month. My legs hurt like mad now lole


went for a hike in tennessee woods, hiked deep into the forrest. wore warm cloath, and no-slip hiking boots due to the ice coating the forrest floor. found a church, fucked with the church organ pipes and looked around to see if there was any hidden loot, there was none. built tent, watched some videos i downloaded on phone, then in the morning put tent away and hiked back. kinda desolate, honestly. no animals or insects.


sounds great lad


Is there a story you have about where the skull came from and how it came onto your possession?


whew that's a long walk

Of course!
Will you make a burial, like a cairn? >>10698
I hope you won't be disgusted about walking
Lucky! When I find an abandoned building, it's already good if the walls are still standing or if they have not been vandalized.

a little bit of gardening today, first mowing of the year. Happy to see that the fruit trees that I planted last year in the orchard are well rooted, apart from a single fig tree.


Nice, what trees are you growing? i'm totally going to start gardening again. It really was fun and nice to not waste my money at the store for food i was growing for free. The last time i had to deal with a swarm of moths/caterpillars and then disease that nuked everything i was growing at the time. (tomatos, jalapinos, bell peppers, some plant that ironically worked as a pesticide once you mash it for oil, and an orange tree) and i think i'm going to start indoors, do my research on how to deal with that nonsense, and then move everything outside.

Apple, apricot, mirabelle plum, nectarine, flat peach, vine, currant, arbutus, blueberry, asimina triloba and kiwi. I would have liked very much to have citrus fruits too, but the hardiness zone of my country prevents me from doing so. I have stopped sowing annual plants, it requires a lot more work than trees and the slightest bad weather can destroy everything, trees are more expensive but it last a lifetime.
I think starting indoor is the right solution, but if you are in the Northern Hemisphere you should start now even if it's a little bit too late for this year. you can also invest in a greenhouse but it's not cheap. I used big water bottles instead.


Next time i'll take pictures, but today i helped a family fren who got injured. She couldnt manage the animals or take care of her garden because of how badly she got injured. she owns several chickens, a hare, and two baby ducks. had to collect eggs, and capture an escaped chicken along with other outdoor chores. Never really did any of this before and in my opinion, it was quite fun! Never touched a chicken before and hen was quite large. Guess i lost my city slicker virginity. See you later virgins.


I havent asked but apparantly the hen that escaped was a runt because none of the other chickens liked her, and apparantly she had her leg broken at one point which is one reason why she escapes. Although for a runt, she's quite huge. Dropped her by accident because i held her the wrong way and she must have been uncomfortable and flew out of my hands.

Well, it's been a year now since we found, my fren and I, a nice spot to fish and camp, we can even make campfires without having the forest guards around. only problem, there are a few people who know this place and polluted for at least a decade. we set ourselves the objective of cleaning up the area. some normies understood our approach but that didn't mean they were going to give us any help, and some other asshole apparently don't even know how to use a trash bag (I'm curious to see what their house looks like) . In short we were not doing badly, but what was our surprise when we found yesterday our pile of hard-filled bags burnt to the ground. Humanity at his finest ...

Is this from the dock or the area where you board the kayak? I've never kayaked, but I solo canoed. I hate that because I had to sit in the middle which, has to be the most unpleasant area of the canoe. Another aspect of solo canoeing which, is awful is the fact that you have to sit in the middle at all times or you tip over. Kayaks look very low from the looks of it. Kayaking seems to be kinda like a sedan whereas a canoe is like a truck.

I tried to climb a >10,900 ft mountain a few days ago, but I don't have much high altitude experience so I nearly passed out just before I could get to the peak. I had to slowly backtrack to a nice spot just below 9,000 to get my breath back. Set up my hammock and enjoyed a snack while I listened to a creek rattle past, high with snowmelt. I love the quiet you can hear once you get a mountain or two between you and the closest highway. I'm going to spend some time on other mountains before I try this one again, but I'll definitely be back.
That's a nice hammock spot. Lakes are really good.

Wew that looks extremely relaxing with great scenery. Are you posting from the hammock lole?


>are you posting from the hammock
I wish! I'm planning on building or buying a hammock stand so I can hang out at home, though. Then I will post exclusively from my hammock.


I remember listening to music in a hammock while camping. It is one of my most fond memories of camping because of how quiet and comfy it was. The hammock I was in wasn't even the nicest hammock because it doesn't have the most space. I am also laughing now about how I fell out of the hammock earlier that day. This talk about hammocks makes me want to buy my hammock for future usage. One issue, though, is I don't remember the brand other kids used back in the day I just remember it being expensive for a thirteen-year-old me (80-100 USD) and, they swore by the brand.


planted some seeds, those being
anaheim chili, cabbage, jalapeno, tomatillo, summer squash, cilantro, sweet pepper, spinach, cucumber, beefsteak tomatos, green onion, and lettuce. I bought a spearmint plant, and a snakeplant. both of those are going to stay indoors but the other plants will be eventually planted outdoors once they reach maturity.


Beefsteak tomatoes are so fucking good. I hope you have a good harvest, anon!


The seeds have sprouted into seedlings!

I have a Hults brand, very well balanced and it keeps the sharpness a long time but man it's heavy to carry in a bag. When i go for multiple days hike and i know there's risk of rain, i take a Fiskars x5, cheap and ultra lightweight, also use to dig holes and as a hammer. But what a crappy design, it's orange and plastic (picrel, hope they make black one), at least it's easy to find in the bushes when you play throwing axe. Always bring a little diamond sharpener pen with this one. This year i will try a silky folding saw and bahco wrecking chisel combo, without axe and knife.


Why so communist anon?

It was less than 7% obscured here, truly unimpressive. Guess I'll have to wait for the next total eclipse in 60 years. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

squach is growing :D
everything is going well including the tomatos. bought some fungicide and Neem oil to keep diseases and pests away


A cool and easy mushroom to grow is Stropharia Rugosoannulata. It's also known by the names of garden giant, winecap, King Stropharia, and burgundy mushroom. To grow it you just need to innoculate some mulch (very easy to do) then spread it around and refresh the mulch every few years. It tastes good and helps plants. Worms go nuts for the mycelium, and it actually sets microscopic snares to catch and eat parasitic nematodes that can hurt your plants. They also break down the mulch for high quality fertilizer.
tl;dr Winecaps are a great low-maintenence mushroom for beginning growers that help out garden plants in a variety of ways

Well at first i thought making a moai head would be easy. then i realized that the deeper you go, the harder it gets. So the nose will be trimmed in another way. I have already spent 2 hours there, moving around to have the best cutting angle. For now it look like a russian with a big beard. If anyone has any idea i will try to do it.

Random walk in a random place, I found a stone-pit with a submerged crane


Oh wow pretty lake
wonder why the cranes there in the first place?


Did you try getting near it?


I have to keep tying my tomato stalks to bamboo sticks or to the tomato cage or else they'll break. They are growing tho which is nice to see, no pests either which is nice.

Well... when we looked for "a beach" we found a small boat and a pair of oars, without chains or locks, we put everything back in place after that. we assumed there was a scuba dive club here. I want to clarify that we did not jump any barrier to get there. it was by chance that we found this place


Yep, thats pretty much the best way to handle that type of situation

i've been using one teaspoon of organic oil castille soap and cayenne diluted with water as a pestiside and it's been working well. I've seen squirrels avoiding my plants like the plague, and it instantly killed gnats that infested my houseplants.


This area looks comfy. I miss visiting outdoor areas like that.


Any interesting animals in your local eco systems?
Personally mine got rekt so most of the animals are gone (at least not in forrested areas) but i used to see HUGE turtles, eagles, and at one point a great blue heron. Another animal was this interesting creature called a "yellow fox" apparantly they are quite dangerous but i honestly thought it was a cat or something and it got pretty close to me. lol


>Any interesting animals in your local eco systems?
Recently I've seen a flock of seagulls, which is weird because there's no sea near

The other day we found an old factory with a tree growing through what was left of the roof. I should have taken photos, in short in one of the offices, in a rusty cabinet filled with boxes of administrative documents, there were these 2 metal boxes.

After the flood between Germany and Belgium




I remember having fun times going for hikes in the woods but now that i live in the city it'd take several days to drive out to the woods.


Beefsteak tomatos grown pretty damn big, and what's nice is another tomato plant fell apart, but i just stuck it in the dirt and it grew stronger roots and started growing again. also been harvesting tasty Jalapeños.
Bad news is winter is coming and i'm scared all my hard work will be for nothing. I don't have a greenhouse or anywear safe to store my plants and i'm not sure they'll survive. Any ideas on what to do? Or am i just worked up for nothing and maybe they'll last. It gets prettt damn cold, Sometime's we'll get sleet, sometimes its subzero but we've never gotten snow.

I know it's a little bit late but I'm pretty sure these plants have an annual cycle, every year you have to plants seeds from the fruits you've got.
Nothing exceptional: duck, rat, squirrel, frog... I'll try to take some pics. A little trick for frogs is to throw very small rocks near the spot you hear them, they'll think it's bugs and they come out of the bushes.

Anyone here plan to go on festivals this year?


Yeah i'm not too sure what happened. My plants just rotted away from the cold.


What kind? Music festivals or the "peanut festival" type of things?


I helped raise a wild box turtle. Fed her fruit and veggies and one day she left never to be seen again

That's what I thought. I hope you kept the seeds for this year. That's why I planted trees. But I'm still planting pumpkins: a lot to eat, easy conservation and minor inconvenient.
As long as it's outdoor, I guess? Nice little discovery your peanut festival, here's one I have done twice: "Obscene Extreme Festival".
This year I think I'll just go to the Death Feast open air, it's in Germany :)
Maybe one year I'll do the Burning Man but I heard recently it was flooded by instafags.

New national touristic wonder


people will say its some ancient marking


What's interesting is that my green onion plant was the only one that made it and it's still growing strong


Do you have any idea clue why that is the case?


perhaps because the other plants was fighting with it for nutrience and now since its alone, it's grown huge

What type of berries are these? Spotted them growing and i'm curious if their edible.


Those look like blackberries, but the leaves aren't quite right. They should be in bunches of 5 with a finer sawtooth, and visible chevron grooving. Weird, since I eat wild blackberries fairly regularly and never come across any lookalikes (this is in N. America). It could be a different variety than what I'm used to, but it's always better to be safe.


Come from europe, same as you, look like blackberries but with different leaves.
Where this pic was taken?


Did you at least take the berries with you just in case you could eat it?


i live in the southeastern region of the United States, and i just spotted them growing in my yard.
