Parallel parking, I hit the cone. :/

Are you a chick ?

You can probably look up youtube tutorials. But you want to pull up parallel to the car in front with maybe a foot or two in between, align your back bumpers perfectly. Then slowly back up and crank the wheel, once you’re at 45 degrees straighten the wheel until your front bumper is just passed their back bumper and begin to turn the wheel the other way, checking in side mirror for the curb. Simple as. Practice on your street. Good luck friend. My license only required a three point turn so I can’t talk too much shit. Dropping my dad off at home after my test and heading over to a friends by myself in my little shit box civic was one of the most liberating experiences of my life.

I'm a man and a decent driver. I just never had to parallel park before.

I think that's normal. Spring should be when you throw away useless stuff and then go on to plant a garden.

Or a podcast. Start with a trash bag, get rid of all trash. Then organize into a sell or get rid of pile, then keep piles according to what room each thing belongs in.

There was a 2007 movie with Mark Wahlberg called Shooter. He had a great mountain cabin.

cholulaking 9 points ago +9 / -0

I am considering getting a temp job outdoors through the summer. I like to fish and go for hikes. The lawn needs dethatching and aeration, and that is a lot of fucking work with hand tools. Springtime is generally when I do all the vehicle and power tool maintenance as the garage is without HVAC. We are gardening a lot this year as well, and I will be removing an old rockbed from the front yard.

I hope to get into reading some good literature. I haven’t been reading as much as I should be, and it’s probably a problem. The less time I spend reading, the more time I spend scrooling or gooming.

Brothers Karamazov, Storm of Steel, and probably Harassment Architecture, though it probably should not be put in the same category as those. I don’t know what else, but if you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

Yea hatchet, cast iron pan, good steak, butter, gun, dog, sleeping bag, tent, book. Thats about it.

1
Oitthegroit 1 point ago +1 / -0

Speaking of a hatchet, there's a really good book called Hatchet. I'd recommend you read it. Without going into spoilers, it's about a guy surviving.

4
zzbg 4 points ago +4 / -0

not him but I generally just bring a book of matches, a ferro rod, whatever camping hammock stuff is relevant to the season/expected weather, a small hatchet, and an entrenching tool. Depending on where I go I have a fairly cheap collapsible fishing setup and knife as well. If it's a shorter trip I usually swap out the etool for a small spade; if you are only going to be out a day or two you just need a small cathole to shit in, not a proper latrine.

2
Porkinfusedbullets 2 points ago +2 / -0

I like to bring a wood stove for cooking. It takes some practice to use well, and takes more setup time than gas or alcohol stove, but for cooking fish and such it works better since the temperature can go lower. Also more efficient than an open fire and quicker than a Dakota fire hole.

You do know they are common neo-nazi activities?

tabarnak 5 points ago +5 / -0

Gardening! While we've been waiting for right time to plant, we've been growing some stuff indoors which we will transplant outside afterwards. So far we have more mint, basil, lemonbalm, and thyme than we will ever need. Also growing some cucumbers (which have gotten ridiculously large)and zucchinis. This year, we are making trellises for the cucumbers, which is supposed to make taking from the plant much easier.

This spring:

Hoping to get motorcycle license

Sitting outside, drinking whiskey and reading books

Continue avoiding and despising pornography

Producing music

Surfing more

Hiking

2
KonyHawk_ProSlaver 2 points ago +2 / -0

What kind of music? What do you use or play?

1
TheRealPizzaPope 1 point ago +1 / -0

I like just about everything, rap, classic country, alt rock, classic rock. As long as its good.

I've made some hip hop beats and worked on a few alt rock songs but now I think I wanna work on some folk/alt rock/country hybrid. I sound like an indie retard faggot for typing that lol but its what I'm going for.

As for instruments, I've been playing guitar for almost a decade, bass, keys, and now drums. I've been producing for a couple years and I learn something new every time. I don't have anything finished though. Producer's dilemma

Oitthegroit 1 point ago +1 / -0

I'm not OP, but I listen to Xurious a lot. My favourite songs of his are Rivers of Blood, Patience has its Limits and Forest of Aiyanar.

Take the MSF course if you haven’t already. Even if you already know how to ride, it will teach you something.
Also if you haven’t read Proficient Motorcycling: The Ultimate Guide to Riding Well, by David L. Hough, (that is the motorcycling equivalent to Aerodynamics for Naval Aviators...) I’ve had some close calls but those 2 things have saved my bacon more than once.

If you have the space for it I heavily recommend building/buying a squat rack if you haven’t already. Nothing beats spring lifting

I have been hardening off my starts. Usually plant out around May 15th. I am watching my garlic, garlic chives, lettuce, kale and comfrey plants grow steadily as we have had some really nice days mixed with snow. The greenhouse will be built this month, I am eagerly anticipating it.

The grass is growing steadily and our cows are loving it. I am especially loving not having to buy hay to feed them. We just got a new Scottish Highland, I named Gladas.

We usually do some hiking/ fly fishing but with the addition of 70 or so ducks we will be lucky if we get a day trip. Our 4 month old also complicates these spontaneous trips a bit, he is not a fan of rides. My intel reports that the fish are not biting so I don’t feel too bad.

One of our ducks went broody and is sitting on quite a nice clutch. This is a first for us as and I am excited to observe the process.We have a few chicks inside that we hatched and have another bunch in the incubator.

Hubby improved our shooting range with the tractor and we have been shooting a bit, although ammo is expensive so not as much as usual. I always enjoy how when we shoot it brings on neighbors to shoot as well. Many like minded individuals here, I am thankful for that!

Sounds like you have a great life, and found a good man! God bless. Once your kid gets a few years on, he/she can tag along fishing and hunting with a BB gun. Try to practice peaceful parenting, and always stay calm.

My work is prep work for this summer and some catch up coursework fpr next year, so i just occasionally check the site in another tab.

I make a small exception for ConsumeProduct because its basically my primary news source. If there is a happening I learn about it here, then go check Daily Stormer or RT or Occidental Observer for the details.

Getting swole with a solid workout routine.

1
Oitthegroit 1 point ago +1 / -0

I personally enjoy blacksmithing and/or melting down metals. The only downside is that if I want to reach temperatures high enough to melt iron and steel, I'd need to use coal (and have a better air feed system), which is illegal in the neighbourhood I live in (it's a city neighbourhood). The next best thing is charcoal, which I currently have. I'm very eager to see if it can reach high enough temperatures, but if it doesn't, then I'm probably going to have to design a better forge and air feeding system, or I'm just going to have to stick with piece of wood.

  1. I fucking hate spring tbh, I have pretty bad allergies and where I live right now is densely populated with my worst allergens. When I go further north it gets much less terrible but rn job situation has me way further south than I usually like. I finally have enough time to do some work to one of my sailboats though, and that will be nice. She hasn't sailed since she came into my possession and I intend to fix it this year, since I FINALLY found someone selling a nice new sail for it (vintage/low production boat) and they even through in all new lines.

  2. Getting my motorcycle certification and buying a bike.

  3. Still a rentcuck, so no gardening. Might do a very tiny windowsill herb thing.

ModsBanPaleos 1 point ago +1 / -0

Bro hate to be the bearer of bad news but if you have allergies you might hate riding. You’re breathing in dust, pollen, dirt all day.

1
zzbg 1 point ago +1 / -0

I've been riding, love it a lot. Just finally have the money to get licensed and get my own thing. It's entirely down to geography for me. Where I actually live I am allergic to almost nothing; I've never had issues with dust, it's ALL a handful of very specific pollens.

I don't expect to ever do much spring riding anywhere bc tbh spring is pretty ugly and wet where I live, but fall is ideal. No pollen, lots of natural beauty, warm, no precipitation.
