Photos, outdoor stuff and whatnot Bernd 05/30/2018 (Wed) 19:00:23 [Preview] No. 16734
Let's start a new one, especially that I have new photos.

New blurry photos of funny for example. I'm not sure it's the same I managed to take a pic of last time (pic #3) might be not. These new pics were taken not far from there tho. It was far up high in the canopy, made huge noise with the branches and leaves, which covered both of us from each other and muffled my noises (while I walk fairly quietly). It rushed toward my direction on the branches then stopped there between two trees in the middle of that long one. So I took a shot. It was too far tho.

I also caught two hedgehogs. In this case I'm sure they aren't the same. The second one let me surprisingly close which I didn't want to exploit too much I was afraid it will curl up. But this resulted a good pic, just look at that neat little dude.

#1 Some flower I don't recognize but looks nice.
#2 These little fuckers are absolutely delicious. Way better than the cultivated one, much stronger taste.
#3 In the last thread I told I'm struggling to make pictures of roe deers (Capreolus capreolus), now I made one. Too bad nothing can be recognized really. Just as I raised my camera the deer ran.
#4 Circled the two deers, the left brown blur is the adult, the right brownish blur is the fawn. The latter I only spotted after I took the photo. The adult was so brightly colored it distracted me from look more carefully. The fawn had greyish-brown fur it was hard to spot, only when it moved drawn attention.

It is mostly pine forest, relatively dark, but birch groves occasionally exist there.

Pine forests are too dark, so nothing tall except pines can grow there, but when pines are removed (chopped or burned), birches grow and prevent appearance of pines because they grow faster. This forest has small patches of birches and spruces. Birch parts are easy to navigate, spruces are hardest, because they cover everything and grow closely.

Never mind that.

Although I've literally fixed ladder yesterday. Left (on photo) side now has some barely visible nails because one of the layer of plank broke (it is glued composite plank, there were no solid one when we built the ladder).

It is called "wild grape" here too. It is actually a wild grape, we've got it from other region from relatives, and it grows pretty good, even considering that non-wild grape doesn't really grows here (it is too cold for it).

>We also have culture of dacha, lots of people has some plot with a small house or other such building. Some of them do some gardening some just have a nice lawn and get lazy on weekends.

Yes, same like this, although new trend here is "cottage community" - plots of land with multiple houses (often even prebuilt) and prepared infrastructure for everyday living (for middle class people mostly). Looks like we'll have amercian-style suburbs in near future.

Our dacha is old-style though, it was started long ago as plot of land, and we've got electricity only after 5 years.

Why the soil so red? When I see such here I assume it's rich in iron oxide. Or there's a bacteria which full of iron oxide.

Maybe it was a skinwalker.

I liek those hills. Especially the ones with the fog. Once when I was upon a hill with good view such fog floated in the valleys below and brushed the lower ridges. It was butifel because up there the air was very clear. I didn't have anything with me to take photos...

>Why the soil so red? When I see such here I assume it's rich in iron oxide. Or there's a bacteria which full of iron oxide.
Only the deeper layer is red. Topsoil is beige to brown. In those cases digging and erosion have exposed lower horizons. A few meters down there's a layer of purple soil.

>Especially the ones with the fog.
Mist is one of the prettiest elements in the local scenery, and one of the reasons gloomy weather is just as attractive as open skies (another one is lush vegetation). It appears in multiple colors (pure white in the morning, gray in the late afternoon, red at night and blue at dawn) and can be very unusual at times: I've seen mist and clouds suddenly enter my valley and turn a sunny day into a gloomy one in less than ten minutes, and I've witnessed thick, red nighttime fog "settle" near the bottom of the valley at night and leave a clear, starry night sky high above an otherworldly landscape.

Petrópolis in particular is famed for its misty weather, which fits well with its Gothic cathedral and old-fashioned manors. My city doesn't look as good, it only has ugly streets.

It's an older soil, like mars. Northern hemisphere had the old soil washed away by the ice ages and new eroded minerals replaced it. You are correct in the iron content.

Never tried it. As soon as I entered "carne de capivara" in Google I got:

>How to cook capivara

In fact, if I search "capivara", "what does capivara taste like?" appears as the very first suggestion.
Several sites claim that it's got a strong taste. A hunter's site states it tastes like grass how do they know the taste of grass, do they graze?, the strength of this taste greatly varies according to which region it's hunted in and it's barely edible if not well-prepared. Another site clarifies that it is low-fat, soft and similar in taste to pork.

It is surprising, farms with nutrias (closely related to capybara) exist in south Russia. They are grown for fur, but their meat is also used for food. I've personally never eat that rat, but seen people who did it.

Although general population wouldn't eat it of course, it looks strange, but I'd never expect that nutria farming may happen in Russia.

Friggin spiders.
This one tried to make it's web in the middle of my fugging room. Meanwhile it descended onto unsuspecting me. It had to die sadly. It should have stayed in the corner and would coexist just fine I don't care. But now all the imaginary spiders of the house are crawling on me.

Maybe he want to catch you?

I've have multiple spiders in my flat (and this is 6th floor of commieblock). Some occasionally moves down on web string between monitor and me, looks at me and goes away. I guess he just saying "hi". I'm trying to remove all webs when I'm cleaning flat, but these guys always find a way to hide.

Not anymore, that's for sure.

Yeah, they are everywhere here as well. In the house, around the house, in the garden. Not all weaves web.
For a while the bird population dwindled for some reason what invasion of insects followed. Then came the spiders to feast. For liek two years their webs were all over the yard. Now birds are back but nowhere close to the number what was before and there are still a lot of spiders but not that much.

>Local superstition say that killing spider brings bad luck.
Sames here. I don't care. If a spider is in the way I prefer to relocate them, at least they eat flies and mosquitos, gnats, whatever, but I've no scrupulous when I decide to kill one or the other.

Finally! Snow in the woods! And everything is frozen. No heat, no sweat, no mud, no wet, no bugs, no arachnids stretching their webs at head level or trying to infest me with Lime disease. Good.
Seen many boar and deer tracks. And a track that appears to be a dog roaming without master. A big one too! Supposedly there are reports of wolves on the Hungary again, but I doubt they would be in my vicinity. And will doubt it until one bytes me in the ass.

You home is very easy to find on google maps actually. But I hardly can imagine any problems because of this.

That's pretty big house. Is it common to have such houses in Turkey? Most Russians live in small flats in commieblocks, and maybe have only summer cottages for occasional visiting, so these buildings look unusual for us.

>well the pic wasnt supposed to look retarded. idk why it happened like that.

That's EXIF orientation. Photo matrices on many devices are installed in rotated position for technological reasons, and rotating images back to proper orientation is relatively resource-consuming task. So, these devices just put "rotate" parameter to file metainfo, and your viewer (browser or something) must rotates it by itself. But this thing often works wrong, especially when thumbnails are made. Endchan is an example of this.

Took me a minute to find it to be honest, others can. I think a good rule of thumb not to post stuff which helps identification. Even if nothing harm could follow. I'm happy you shared things, you can post moar kots if you wish, or anything else, just miss the notable landmarks.

I hope there will be snow as well. With that even at night it isn't too dark in the woods, especially in clear weather with the moonlight.

A mite most likely.
When I shoot that pic I was interested in the mushroom as I've never seen such fungi growing on a tree. 99.9% of the time it's tinder fungus or something similar in shape. I had just noticed that red arthropod as I browsed what to upload.

They more similar to hooves. Or UFO's.
They are used to make tinder. Their inside can be divided into to parts and the upper consist of a thick hard material which resembles to certain cloth by touch. It should be cut to slices (hard work when dried out, and even when freshly gathered from the tree I guess it isn't easy), the slices boiled for a while in water with mixed in ash (lye basically), then the slices should be hammered with a mallet to make them as thin as possible, then they have to dry. And then they take sparks very well.
I didn't tested this out, tho I once I halfed one with a saw and managed to spark an ember in the dust of the tinder fungus with a ferrocerium rod.
Fun fact: the Hungarian word ember means human/man/person/people in English.

Don't think so. It's non edible but most such fungi aren't poisonous. The main reason one wouldn't eat it because it would be not a pleasant experience. It's hard as fuck but the taste might be even shittier. I think very few "tree-based" mushroom is edible most notably picrel. I find one not long ago. Ate it in scrambled eggs with onions. Tasted breddy gud.

Just a mystery of life. Go with it.

Even common popular edible mushrooms are pretty bad as food by nutrition value. They are full of chitin, they aren't easy digested and don't contain large amounts of beneficial nutrients etc. But they are tasty. And people also just eat almost everything they can.

It's too risky, even with a mushroom guide book sometimes it's impossible to tell apart from difference.

And testing mushrooms on animals is bad decision as something normal for them might hurt you in a terrible way.

In my childhood we went picking mushrooms all the time with my family, but usually with my granma, then in my teenage years I left out and had other things for a long time, now barely remember anything, but here's my two cents:
Pick just a few kinds you want to gather, learn all the info you can and check if they can be mistaken with other species. Then check which months they grow maybe it's different, all seasons/months have their typical mushrooms. Some cannot be mistaken with anything, picrel for example. Also checking them with an exbert is always an option. Look up who is available in your town, when and where.
If you can't recognize what you find, leave it.

>mass produced ones from the supermarket are usually shit tier
They are.

>pretty bad as food by nutrition value
And that's good. For those on certain diet.

On the Hungary the followings are among the most common edible ones:
From these the Agaricus is the easiest to mistake with a poisonous one and the red pine mushroom is the safest in this matter.

Oh and here winter arrived, we have snow. Walked in the woods about an hour every day since then but seen nothing mildly interesting. Except animal tracks. Deer and boar.
Nice panorama from there.

On the right growing from the hillside. That's a tall lad.

They are fine here in the shade of taller trees' dense foliage where other underbrush ain't grow. I dunno about soil. Maybe one day I'll educate myself.

I liek mango. Only ate a couple of times in my life mostly I just drink juice. I even liek the cheap artificial mango juices.

Juice is probably the least interesting way to consume mango. The best is eating the fruit itself, preferrably when it's massive, vivid pink and giving off a sweet scent. My grandmother owns a number of decades-old trees in her ranch and every year I can carry kilograms of those back home.
But is it true that exotic tropical fruits are hideously expensive in Europe? And even if they aren't, mango at its peak taste may be hard to buy.

They sell mango as piece, like pineapple or pomegranate, and not in kilos. A piece can cost several times as a kilo apple. Now nut types are expensive too, despite some of them are common.

I went to Straßburg, Alsace yesterday, so have this IWO. I had a voucher from our national railway company for traveling abroad that I had to use until the end of 2018, so the last day of the year was perfect. That made the cost of the ticket somewhat acceptable, the normal price is pretty expensive, so I paid for half the normal price, 25€ instead of 50€ for both ways. First pictures are taken in Petit France, small France. Historically it was the place of leather making. I just read the story behind the name. Mercenaries that fought for the French crown in Italy were treated there who came back with sexual transmitted diseases lol.

They pretty much erased everything that was written in German language and replaced it with French. The street signs are bilingual in French and Alsatian. Alsatian is a variation of the Alemannic dialects, so in the same group as Swiss German. It's very cute dialect, people in the Swiss border town of Basel speak a very similar dialect.

They are common in Switzerland too, before they built gommieblocks. The whole family lived in such a house (grandparents, brothers, kids) and some factory owners were just really generous. They thought by giving them bigger houses with gardens, they would be better humans and more productive when they were happy. Other housing projects go back to cooperatives.

I have some photos of Basel, didn't plan to post them, but why not.
1) It's not the star of David, I swear.
2) The cathedral has this courtyard attached to it. Basel changed from Catholicism to Reformist faith 500 years ago. So there are structures left from the catholic times, but they burnt all images.
Some background information about Basel. It's the headquarter of the big pharma, Novartis, Roche and some other smaller companies. Because they charge so much on their drugs, they are able to pay a lot of taxes too. That makes Basel and some of their families really rich.
They have some complex with the biggest city of Switzerland, Zurich. They always compare themselves to Zurich and are really proud when they are better in something than Zurich. I never ever read in a Zurich newspaper that Zurich does something better than Basel, because they simply don't care about Basel.
Basel is special because it is split in two cantons, city and landscape. It's the only successful revolt of the peasants against the ruling city in Switzerland, while other revolts of the land people was crushed. This split leads to Basel always having fights and prejudices against each other. A project to reunite was declined by a popular vote 2 years ago. There's too much pride left. It hurts their cause on a national level though, their influence is really small compared to much smaller cantons.

The town hall is really unique, not only in color, but also in architecture. Even the parliament is special. The politicians sit according to the part of town they represent and not together as party. I openly admit that it's beautiful and nicer than the small parliament building Zurich has.

>only a Swiss can be evil enough, to force his brutalist and inhuman architecture to people worldwide
Brutalist buildings are really cool. As long as they're not in your city, that is.
Feels modestly cyberpunk.
The boat's aesthetics stick like a sore thumb. Nice and unusual architecture, though.

Sounds like someone was tasked with expanding the station's area without harming its architecture and came up with that "solution".

>Some background information about Basel. It's the headquarter of the big pharma, Novartis
yeah that's kinda the reason my father been there and eventually settle there. he studied chemie in Basel.

I know a few historical things about Basel and you already pointed at many of them. I can say euler was born in Basel there is also a place called Kleinhuningen supposedly it's related with Huns and Atilla setting a camp there.

It's a nice place, too many memories I have there. It's been like 5 years I havent been to Basel.

Also we were very close to that triple border(?) thing, we could easily go to germany for shopping and sometimes france.

The airport is in France indeed and is shared with Switzerland. In the Swiss terminal Swiss jurisdiction counts, although it's on French soil. That's important for the low-carrier airlines like Easyjet that has a base there for tax reasons.

Took an alternative path to nearby town through a quiet dirt road. I never crossed it before, so I had to rely on Google Earth to get an idea of where I'd have to walk. But its satellite images are sometimes over a decade old (crops have changed, woods have been deforested, roads have been opened and paved) and oftentimes roads are obscured when they enter wooded areas. It didn't prove very helpful, as I confused myself in the road's million forks and repeatedly took dead-end side roads. In the end my time was running out and I wasn't sure if I was on the right track, so I turned around and backtracked. By the time I got home it was already nighttime.
Then I took another look at the road with Google Earth and concluded I really was at the right path and would have arrived at my destination if I had just walked for five more minutes. Oh well.
The weather was really gloomy, which substantially decreased my tiredness and sweat. I didn't even drink through my whole canteen despite walking a long distance. The city was lovely in the mist.

I have a tourist map of the wider area where I live, but it's outdated printed in 2006. The roads, paths are mostly the same but there are always changes. So I too use online map services, mainly openstreetmap. We have a site for tourist maps but that also uses openstreetmap I think, so yeah. Anyway that's fairly up to date. The google sat images are also helpful tho the foliage cover lot.
If I hike in a new area I make a sketch beforehand. Sometimes it's a continuous drawing, try to make it scale so I have some idea on the distances how far the features follows each other. Sometimes I just draw the notable features, crossroads, bends, sinkholes, dolines, mark a valley on the right, a high-stand of hunters on the left, that sorta thing.
Orienteering maps are awesome, I dunno if Bernd is familiar. They mark every fucking thing, like big tree trunks or changes in vegetation (e.g. border of oaks and pines).

The video doesn't show it, but the ground I was standing on is earth taken from elsewhere and left there as a dam. Together with the valley's elevation this encloses a section of the valley's floor. They were making themselves a lake but left the area abandoned for a while, it seems.

the caucasian one is consolidated around eastern anatolia and dont penetrate towards the west due to mountains covering the region.

In other regions we mainly get it from balkanlar. "Balkanlardan gelen soğuk hava dalgası" cold winds hailing from balkans is even a memetic term now.

>Wouldn't think that.
This is one of the instances my english fail me, you don't believe it or rather you didn't think like it before?

As for our climate here is a short summary.

Eastern Black Sea Region:
You'll see the mountains are paralel towards the sea, so there is no gap so it's a mild climate as regular rain clouds and overally humid climate can not penetrate the mountains, so allmost all of the rain clouds coming from black sea is consolidated in there. There is regular rain in eastern black sea, temperature and humididty differences across the seasons is lowest in Turkey. The behind mountains are very different from coastal black sea, complete different weather, it's more arid, colder in winter, much similar to steppe climate.

Western Black Sea:
Same though there is a gap in the foremost west part of it, so it's like eastern black sea with less steroids.

Aegan region:
Aegean Coast mountains which extend perpendicular to the coast indented coast to coast, which is a type of cross. So both warm and mild weather of aegan sea and cold winds from balkanlar is able to penetrate, as the mountains are not parallel towards the coast. Unlike black sea, climate difference between coast and innerlands are minimum due to the way mountains stands towards the sea.

Mediterranean Region:
The mountains are similar to black sea, the hot weather that comes from arabian peninsula and mild climate from mediterranean sea, cannot pass through the mountains. No snow, unless you go to mountains, even then there is no regular snow in there. It's hot and humid, though in late autmn and winter it's okay. The nomadic Türks use/used this place as kışlak, a winter residence as winter is mild here.
Even today there are handful of yörüks(nomadic Türks) here because getting warm is more tedious than getting cool and chilly.

Inner Anatolia:
Steppe climate, cold in winter, dry and hot in summer. The aegan sea and marmara sea cannot affect here enough as it's too far, but cold winds of balkans can.

South east Anatolia:
The region is surrounded by mountains but inner part is relatively flat. It's too hot during summer, the surrounding mountains and hills prevent the got winds of arabian peninsula getting through so the hot weather is rather consolidated in there.

Eastern Thrace:
Not much to say, kinda cold because it's rather north and mountainious.

South Marmara:
Kinda mix of both western black sea climate and aegan climate.It's closer to aegan one I think.

That's somewhat funny in historical context. Balkan was always a hot spot of conflicts and the feelings of those who live is kinda chilly toward Turks.

#1 A high-stand of hunters. Let's look at it closer.
#2 Oh it's closed. I left it unopened didn't wanna disturb things and make them suspicious someone fucking with their stuff. There was something in there I couldn't see, they oftentimes make it comfier with piece of mattress or something and they usually put there something for insulation to stop the wind freeze their asses. The "killzone" usually is about 20m from the stand.
#3-4 noticed a patch of dead standing trees in unusual amount. We call them "dried-on-leg/foot". Quite some time ago oldtimers from the neigbourhood went for these as they are great fire wood. They just pushed them over - as the roots die, oftentimes one doesn't need axe for felling - and took them home on their shoulders without a cart or something.

Tracks, tracks, tracks. As I said previous snow melted and all the prints were in mud. But the snow now covered them and no new tracks were left as it started in the morning and since then animals didn't move a lot. These prints aren't clear ofc as the snow started to cover them after they were left behind. I couldn't make out the "fingerprints".
#1 Probably rabbit.
#2 Deer.
#3 Boar, a smaller one. The typical heel print doesn't show as the snow was shallow.
#4 Hooman. Notice how they don't raise their legs enough as they step, they just shuffle leaving long heelmarks even in this shallow snow. Especially the one on the right. Walking like that on the fallen leaves makes helluva noise.

Are they really dead or they just lost bark? And why this happened?

The one on my photo is tricky as the first paws ain't long enough (if you examine it closely they are a bit bigger tho), could be a fawn, but that doesn't walk around alone (they don't shoot the momma deer) and the pattern would be different. It's like the first line of hops on your pic.
>Maybe old an weak, good target for hunt.
Might be. The right one and the center left seems smallish, would guess as females. Also center left gives flatfoot wibe, but might just her heel slipped a little as she placed onto the ground. Could be also tired and can't keep her foot straight. Definitely suitable target.
>Are they really dead or they just lost bark? And why this happened?
They ded as far as I could tell. I dunno why so many in one patch, could be illness of some sort or insect infestation, usually what I see they stand fairly lonesome.

Sadly, most of small cities also full of commieblocks. Here commieblock building was prohibited in large part of city because of coal mines underneath the city (it is the famous Donbass region, not Ukrainian of course). Also land cost nothing because there is no money, no work and no fun, so building more than 5 floors aren't worth.

Last week I was walking through a typical route and decided to take a detour to climb a hill on the other side of the valley. There's a stream at the bottom, but a dam holding back a large man-made lake lets you reach the other side dry. I reached the top but found underwhelming views.

Snow + lightning makes for some strong aesthetics. Rain + lightning is similar but not as intense. The last picture in particular looks great even though the location pictured is unremarkable.

Then came my mistake. See that eucalyptus plantation to the left? I thought I could just cut a path straight through it. But I wasn't wearing boots and pants at the time -just shorts and slippers. It took way longer than I expected. Then I thought I could just walk through the stream. Its width was shorter than the span of my legs, so I could just walk through it. But the entire valley bottom had its own kind of dense vegetation and it also took an unexpectedly long time to cross. Then I figured out I'd just head back home after that.

As you know I visited Straßburg a few weeks ago. See >>21873
So a report in the local newspaper caught my eyes. A reporter visited the people who are protesting in front of the European court for human rights. The Brit with the green posters everywhere stands there every day at certain times. This is how the man who as abducted by the Blair government, according to himself, looks like.

He was an attractive successful person before Blairites turned him into a shizo Bernd, I swear. I think there are always eccentric persons out there, even in a small town. Somebody someday started to demonstrate there and others followed suit, so they get some attention in real life.

Today it's snowing again. I want to go out a little I have a strip of wood in mind where I might find something interesting. Some high-stands around and if they thought it's a good idea to build them there then it means game should be frequent the area. The vegetation also more interesting, with a bit more oaks, the ground is more rocky with patches of moss.
Wow it's snowing hard, will hide many things again. Oh well.

Finally we got about 5 cm snow. Not much. Well less work with that. Also it was quite warm and started to melt. It was nice fluffy tho.
Ice under the snow is nasty, be careful.

These are all roes' (Capreolus capreolus). Seen two as well! Running away, coz they spotted me first as I huffed and puffed and clomped up on the hillside. Nevertheless in that area I found many tracks those two strolled around quite a bit.

Pic #1 - What does the poor tree say? "I'm broken." Note the brush in the background. It's basically similar all around, with many old fallen trees. For this reason not many people go into that patch of wood.
Pic #2 - Missing piece of bark. Those curvy lines were the hiding places of bark beetles. Some fat ones too.
Pic #3 - Same tree, a bit higher. The work of the woodpecker those little holes in the bark, ofc the missing piece form the previous photo is also their doings. They smacked it away.
Pic #4 - That green thing is mistletoe. Too bad I didn't have my golden sickle with me.

That's it. Made some other pictures but nothing noteworthy.

Hawkmoth caterpillars. Popularly known as mandarová, larvae of this family grow to terrifying sizes (15cm) and can cause massive damage to cassava leaves. This kind is common here. After some research I've concluded those are Pseudosphinx tetrio, which doesn't attack crops. It isn't even harmful to human contact, and I've found a lot of pictures of them just walking over bare hands and arms.
The head is the red, round part. At the other end lies a horn. As its aposematism suggests, it's poisonous to its predators.

I have a primal fear of these. When I spot one while walking in the bush, shivers run down my spine and I carefully look around for more. Try that with the last picture. Almost invariably, more of them will be around. They concentrate around some trees, and I find it unsettling to see many at the same time. And yet it's an exotic and, in its own way, beautiful creature.

Forgot. We don't expect frost in the future so we did gardening on the weekend. Well I dug up the garden. Parts of it. I planted some radishes and garlic in two rows at the edge of the dug up patch.

I has nice colours but no wonder you get the heebie jeebies.

There's a feather in it. Also bricks. Also the tree looks like it was splashed with thin plaster. I see the caterpillar too.

I don't. Even poisonous or unsanitary ones don't spook me in their adult forms.
What unsettles me are larvae. I've been stung by caterpillars before (not that one) and it hurts a lot. They're viscous, fluid, meaty, unlike the rigid adults. Their primitive shape reminds me of parasitic nematodes, which I had a long time ago. And they include meat larvae which infest dogs and livestock.

Fulgora sp.
Where I live these are called jequitiranabóia (from the Tupi words for cicada+similar to+snake), but there are a dozen variations of the same word and elsewhere they're also called "winged snakes", "flying snakes", "air snakes", "cicada snakes", "locust snakes", "mad cicadas", "namboya jacarés" and so on. It's generally feared -in part because of its ominous snakelike appearence- and said to kill humans with poison, but it's actual danger is minimal. It can, however, be a pest for some crops, as it feeds on plants.
The most prominent feature is the "head", actually just a swollen outgrowth of some regions of its real head. It mimics an alligator or a snake even in details such as false eyes and mouth. The wings also have false eyes. It is popularly believed to be blind because the head's "eyes" are unconvincing to human observers, but the real eyes are elsewhere.
Another feature is its ability to expel a kind of wax.
Bioluminescence was reported in the past, but it was likely misattributed. It may happen, but only due to fatal bacterial infections.

My radishes are growing nicely, look at those green leaves in a row. Only one garlic showed up for now, I found that one in the soil when I dug up the garden. Me mum sowed some last year sometimes and that one didn't grew for some reason. However it already had a little green at it's pointy end, and I put it back among the others.

I posted here somewhere that I would post another IWO. I prepared one way back, but I thought it would be rude to post them immediately after Brazil posted some pics and then I just postponed it.
Last summer I made a short trip to Neuchâtel in the French speaking part of Switzerland, but it's not far away from the language border. It means New Castle.. It differs from many other Swiss cities, because for most time of the history it used to be a principality compared to the other cities that were ruled by republican principles. When their last dynasty died out they chose a new ruler and not just some random dude, but the ruler of Prussia. After the defeat of Napoleon, it led to the situation that Neuchâtel was part of Switzerland and Prussia at the same time until peasants started a successful revolution to get rid of their Prussian overlords. Prussia was very butthurt about this and threatened war against Switzerland. They pussied out, thanks dog Bismarck wasn't chancellor yet and would turn their rage against Denmark instead later.
Switzerland has lots of smaller nice cites that aren't overrun with tourists, but are nice to visit for a day trip.

1) train arrived with a delay of 6 minutes. I'm so sorry you had to see this, such huge delays bring shame to Switzerland
2) more retarded trains on the board. Pretty nice weather that day and McDolans in the station hall.
3) the station is a bit elevated, so you have a nice view over the city
4) the tower is the home of the most assburger federal office of Switzerland, the federal office for statistics. Neuchâtel is just 30 minutes away from the capital Bern.

I love when trees and bushes collect snow and/or frost in winter. Looks awesome. Few winters ago due to high temperature the snow was very wet, slushy so it stuck well to the side of the trees. Maybe I have some shots of this somewhere.

Dude in the video. Well, if you just watched the part then you didn't see him.
He is the famous author of Canterbury Tales.
His stepfather influenced him in his enthusiasm toward nature when he was a kid. Then he was in the Army, stationed in Korea as clerk or something, had some training beside the base one tho. Then he got into larping, 17-18-19th century frontiersman style. Then based on these previous experiences he got into prepping, self-reliance and survivalism. Maybe started his youtube channel about this time. Then got into a TV-show but on the application he said he was Rambo. This didn't sit well, so he had to leave and apologize. Still the 'tube channel went on, he built (maybe it was before the tv show I don't know things this accurately, stuff here might be in the wrong order) up a survival larping school where you can learn quite a bit of interesting and surprisingly practical and useful things about camping. He authored two buschcraft books, were in other shows on telly, has his own blacksmithy and carpentry workshop where he makes stuff, has a "self-reliance outfitters" store where he sell his stuff and some chinese shit with their own brand. His school has several branches now all over the world, it seems it is a good business. So he is an entrepreneur and his selected niche is outdoor stuff.
Some of his videos are cozy, others have some good info in them, but I wouldn't recommend (as the yt channel thread clearly shows it) since the bunch of gear shilling is getting on my nerve.

That's not so bad. Especially compared to the Alps which one Hungarian warlord crossed three times on one campaign in the first half of the 10th century with his 15 thousand men and 3 to 10 times that many horses. But yes, these aren't pastures and woods defeats archery.
Huh, I just realized: archery = make an arch with a stick that bows. Who would have guessed that, am I rite?

>he would be a good used car salesman
I tend to agree.
>he seems like a typical fraud
I wouldn't go that far. Decathlon also sells bunch of outdoor stuff they ain't fraud either. Also this guy gives many legitimate information, not just for simple camping but woodcraft, land navigation and such. Great many people lacks in these type of infos and quite a lot of them would pick up some outdoor hobby. I personally know some who wouldn't know how to hold an axe.
>you need very little if you want to camp in the woods.
True, as I previously stated (in a previous outdoor thread) I don't do camping (while did some long time ago) just do day hikes - or moar liek half-day hikes - and for that one needs even less. I walk with a plastic bottle of water and a chocolate bar. If I go a "larger" round (15-25 kms) I drop a sandwich and an apple in my bag too. I only bring a knife because sometimes I cut a walking stick and maybe my finger. The main equipment is foot gear - and clothing depending on weather.

I've three foot gears. Milsurp Bundeswehr boots for winter since the leather is thick and it's lined, most of the winter I only need a pair of semi-thick socks. With enough wax-fat-oil gunk I made it's fairly water resistant. It was cca €75. A noname military style leather boots for the "transitional periods" of the year, since the weather isn't warm enough and mud is frequent, this was €30. For summer I've a pair of Chinese €10 canvas shoes, light and dries fast. Tho it's gonna fall apart soon, so I've bought a backup pair.
My fav backpack is none at all. I don't like it how it constrains me. A chocolate in my pocket and the half L water bottle in my hand (tho some of my pockets that fits too). Ofc, it's needed for a longer hike.

More useful to what?
For that fire you described you don't need nothing just a lighter/matches and your bear hands. Those sticks can be broken easily, especially since one needs dry wood, that snaps easily.
And even if one doesn't snap, other ways can be used to do that.

lol you only need two stones to rub together

look at this gear snob!

Bernd 05/05/2019 (Sun) 07:06:20 [Preview] No.25569 del
Stone rubbing is gearfagging. One doesn't just need two stones but a material which can hold a spark. Very few sparks, two stones nowhere produce as much as a ferro rod. So this material has to be produced somehow, like a charcloth or something.
So all in all, it is much more effort.
What I'm talking about is this: grab a lighter, gather wood - from twigs up to branches two finger thick, these snap easily when dry. And you need dry wood anyway. It's even less effort and start sawing them. A few thicker branches might be necessary, but easy to find close to the length needed, but even the longer can be placed into the fire by one end, and pushed forward when burnt up. No sawing/cutting is necessary. Bur if one really wants to, these thicker branches can be broken by putting them between twin tree trunks growing V shaped and pulled by the end. Easy peasy. Again, faster than sawing and even less effort.
Maybe if you want to use a dead standing pine, then might come a saw in handy.

My radishes are growing. I suspect because I botched the planting, I spread the seeds in a bunch too close to each other now they are concentrating to grow the leaves instead of the root as they try to outcompete each other for the light.

Hey I remember discussing those with you. Sorry I forgot.
Yeah cucumbers are mostly water so they need a lot of that to grow. I heard in general tap water isn't the best to water vegetables, probably the chlorine if it's treated with such. But since you mention the temperature: we water our ornamentals with water what was stored on room temperature for a while and not fresh from the tap.

Hmm. Moscow isn't really north, it is pretty warm place overall. Large share of population (more than 1/10) concentrated in Moscow region, because there are very large difference in wages, i.e. you'll get 300$ in Smolensk or 1200$ in Moscow for literally same job, but other prices are same, except housing (it is much cheaper in regions), but even this doesn't stop migration.

Population of big Moscow region is near 20 000 000 nowadays, and also few millions (yes) of illegals from Central Asia.

Peterburg is small version of Moscow with same pattern of living but much less population.

And those, who didn't move into big city, live in places that you described. For example, Krasnodar region is more populated than Arkhangelsk or such.

Considering climate, it isn't that cold in central part of Russia at all, and it isn't much warmer at south except in summer. Remember, it is mild continental climate zone, not oceanic or such

The struggle against peronospora and eriophyidae continues this year. Due to rainy weather I wasn't able to spray the grapes, just once and was washed away by heavy downpour not half hour later...
Nevertheless we can hope for dry weather for two days straight and just finished with spraying. Later I'll cut away those leaves which were harmed way too much. Also it needs a little thinning too.

No, I don't have enough, even if it isn't damaged by illnesses. Tho we frequently press the juice.
I have a pal who made wine (red) every year, and his dad before him too. I usually helped with "harvest" (it's an arbor, tho larger than ours) and with the press. Then the consuming ofc.
Some sugar was always applied, sometimes raisins. One time we actually stemmed the whole thing, that gave the best wine. But that was one occasion, it was too Sisyphean job.

It's ok. I like it, driving is fun, although I'm still nervous in heavy traffic and parking isn't fun at all.

Overall it is good, now I can do proper dacha repairs at least, and not limited by weight of things that I can buy in shops. Need to buy dashcam and some things too, and do some paint on scratches (sadly, there are many of them).

(these animals are from some unknown neighbor from local community, he has much more but it was too dark for photos with my bad camera)

It is the sad part of driving, like climbing to the mountain after skiing. Technically, every driving session must end with some kind of parking, although it can differ in results.

>I see some nice stinging nettle there. For tea or even a meal. Tho I wouldn't pick it from roadside, and would choose what leafs to harvest, check it if it's healthy, no parasites, spots of illness etc.

Oh, there are plenty of it, it is everywhere, even in forest. Sometimes bushes are almost high as me. I already had multiple skin contacts with it when I've mowed down it (with electrical trimmer), and it isn't too fun.

Never heard that it can be used for tea, only for soups and medical purposes though.

Get a tank, no more worry with parking.
Also parking can mean leaving the car behind. Where are you parking? Right below that tree.

Yes stinging nettles sting. The large ones good for cordage (I posted elsewhere), younger ones with their fresh leafs for consumption. It has medicinal value and it's tea is mostly for that purpose since it tastes bland so the pleasure value is low. I ate maybe twice in my life but nowadays I'm thinking about incorporating it little better into my diet.

Oh and we have a belief that slapping rheumatic joints with stinging nettles good against the affliction.
Maybe it really relieve the pain, causing another pain beside the one can trick the mind to feel the first one less. Also I remember something that some chemical gets released to lessen pain when we are in one and the response to a larger ache can negate lesser ones or something along these lines.
I knew someone who used it not once so I guess he felt better.

Yes, it is same belief here too. Nettle also full of vitamins, helps ecology by growing in polluted places and also has wide appearance in folk culture. But it also considered as some form of "pest".

But compared to Heracleum (Sosnowsky hogweed, also called "Stalin's revenge") it is pretty good weed. We even have fines for those who don't remove that evil thing from their property, because it causes heavy burns.

>Nettle also full of vitamins
And a good source of carbohydrates and protein (albeit not for all the essential amino acids I think).
That weed grows around here too, tho I dunno if it's mandatory to exterminate them. Ragweed (Ambrosia artemisiifolia) yes, due to it's pollen. But in general mowing the weed is mandatory for everyone's property.
I can't remember coming into contact with sosnowsky's so I probably never did.
I know Americans usually complain about poison ivy.

Successfully walked the path in >>22011
Saw a small leaping cervid within eyesight of the city
The ground was wet but hard, so while going downhill surrounded by tall eucalyptus trees my footstepts echoed loudly
Took just one dead end. I realized it was a dead end but wanted to keep going out of curiosity. Then one middle to large-sized dog agressively barked to me from an estate with an open gate while two tiny and equally angry ones approached me from the side. All the dogs in the valley were already in a deafening symphony of barking after I passed close to a home with three of them, so I had to head back. To my terror a large and angry dog was in the road. I tried to go up the hill and take a detour and got myself scratched by Acacia plumosa ("arranha-gato" as it's locally known). It's dense and can grow into an impassable thicket, and it can strongly attach itself to you with its thorns. After freeing yourself some chunks of the thorns remain in your body but can be easily removed, and scratches are left. I wasn't too unlucky, I just got some light scratches in my right hand. My detour took me to a home higher in the hill and more barking. I returned to the road and the dog was gone. I got back to the main road, reached the point where I had previously given up and found my destination truly was just one hill away.
Saw a badly decomposed porcupine besides the road

Sadly no photos for today. I went for the lightest possible loadout, just shorts and slippers. It feels uncomfortable to walk around with a heavy and vulnerable object in my pocket in such a condition. Not a single drop of water, either. It was a cloudy midwinter afternoon and I had a slow pace so it didn't matter.

I'm familiar with acacia in general. They were introduced in Europe and now they are growing liek... acacia. EU wants to get rid of it but Hungarian beekeepers make excellent honey with the help of it. Also great fuel since hardwood.
But I looked it up and it turns out what I know has nothing to do with acacia it's Robinia. Nevermind.
>shorts and slippers
>in winter
I couldn't live in your climate.
Anyway I'm familiar with the problem of what and how to carry and I also like to travel light. I bought a pouch thingy I can attach to my belt, so I can put stuff in it. A half liter plastic bottle with water is fine in my hand but sometimes can be inconvenient too and for a larger one a backpack is necessary. In about 10 kms radius I know two fresh springs with safely consumable water as is and I can plan a hike so I don't need to haul much water. However if the winter and spring was dry than in the summer the springs can be dry.
I wasn't in the woods for a while now for anything real. Fugging mosquitos.

You could harvest the bark of fallen birches and make stuff out of it, liek little buckets. And on occasionally some chaga must grow on them trees. Maybe it grows there on the last tree at the end of the video. Or maybe that's just a burl or what it's called.
Also be careful walking around like that. You watch the screen instead where you step and you can get an awful surprise.

>You could harvest the bark of fallen birches and make stuff out of it, liek little buckets.

I actually gone not only for walking, but for gathering some of these birches - they are pretty good as firewood. Year ago I took large fallen birch and it was enough for occasional barbecue for months. But this time all birches were too decayed for that usage, so I didn't get anything.

I think I need to go further from footpath, because there are too many people using it (it goes from local villages to nearby bus stop in 2km). Maybe next time.

> And on occasionally some chaga must grow on them trees

I'm not so skilled to do something good with it. I also need much more mundane repair work at house, chimney's top was crushed by snow, wooden compost pile collapsed and water pipes occasionally leaking.

>Also be careful walking around like that. You watch the screen instead where you step and you can get an awful surprise.

Yes, already experienced problem with this. I mostly don't watch on screen though, but having phone in hands like this already distracting.

>Don't you guys have mosquitos there?

If a part of the chimney surrendered it might also be wise to check the laths of the roof if they hold up fine. We don't wanna lose a poster you know.
Chaga can be used for tea too, that sounds easy to do, but I dunno if it needs any kind of preparation beforehand or just drop a piece into the hot water.

Nowadays at least we have less skeeters than a week before, this is promising.

next pictures were taken from nearby Murten, now in the German speaking part of Switzerland, although the town is official bilingual. The city takes a crucial role in the history of Switzerland. The second battle between the Swiss confederacy and Burgundy and their ally Savoy took place here. Charles the Bold lost the war and his life in the third battle in Nancy at the hand of Swiss mercenaries. The Duchy of Burgundy stopped to exist as result. Switzerland got the Northern parts of Savoy and incredibly rich by taking the riches of Burgundy and selling some of the stuff to the Fuggers. Habsburg was totally OK with this, as Swiss renounced to take any Burgundy clay and Habsburg inherited the majority of it (as always lol), half of the Burgundy, Luxemburg, Brabant and Flanders.

Ah, another one of your quality IWOs. I was waiting for it.
Made me think I should visit Aquincum again, last time was a little kid when I was there about. They put the area under a very intensive archaeological research since then.

These arenas preserved their usefulness throughout the ages. 2000 years later people still find their entertainment in them.

>21) oh look, something they didn't paint over
Such a pleasant scene.

What's up with the David star on that tower?
And now it's a rich backwater country.

>agricultural land
I imagine it was used as such in the Medieval. How many Roman "relic" was lost due the plowing of a thousand and a half years? How many was found intact and was repurposed or given to their betters to use.

Nod really, old stones are great.


I don't drink coffee, jokes on you. I ruin your economy singlehandedly.

I'm very glad you posted these. Since I wrote about the apostles of the Crown I read that some theologians consider Paul one of the Twelve since he was the chosen of God and they exclude Mathias. But I see Mathias on that Fresco with Paul. But then who is the one (beside Judas) who was left out? The last one on the right is missing his name from your photo. Do you remember who was him? It's either Philip or one of the Jacobs (my money on the latter they might thought that all the Jacobs are one person).
The moral of the story: just because we think who should be the members of the Twelve it doesn't mean previously they thought the same, even tho we have not one version for the list. They had their own considerations and reasoning and whom they portrayed depended on this.

Haha, negers.

Well just imagine you'd had to do the work of climbing and pay for it too...
Btw if you have the chance climb a minaret. A slimmer one.

Walls n shit. I'm jelly.

So few people all in all. Tho I guess you made sure no to photo many faces.

Jews, they lived there in the 19th century and later moved on to the bigger cities. They demolished their synagogue and the star of David is to commemorate them.

I prepared some pictures from a hike I did this week, so I post them too. It was 35°C at home, so going to the mountains was a good way to cool off.

157) On the train south to the mountains, you come across postcard worthy lake and mountains
158) Next few pictures are all shot from the train, you can still open the windows in the alpine small gauge trains
160) The old Gotthard tunnel, they built the portal extra large with 4 tracks, to make it look bigger, inside it has 2 tracks. There's the new tunnel further below that is the longest tunnel in the world right now, before Brenner Basis or some Chink tunnel gets finished that is longer

162) the lower old bridge is the devil's bridge. it was built by the devil himself for the price of the first soul that would cross the bridge. peasants sent a goat over the bridge, making the devil really angry, he took a big rock and wanted to crush the bridge he built, but an old lady held a cross at him, making him disappear. The devil's rock is in the village, where I changed the train at 158). True story so far. They wanted to demolish the devil's rock with TNT when they constructed the motorway, but you can't do that, so they moved the rock.

172) Andermatt is the starting point of three Alpine passes, Gotthard being the most important one, the train took me to another pass though, it's pretty nice that you can take a train to a pass at over 2000 meters above sea level, but usually most passes have train tunnels, so they don't go this high
