2021.04.20 02:12 equication-atlas My pandemic time project was making a comprehensive list of equestrian vacations! Would love to get feedback!
Like everyone else, I have been stuck at home with too much free time. I work as a Covid ICU nurse and on my days off I needed a project to keep me occupied and optimistic. I started by just researching equestrian vacations for myself and as my map started growing, figured I would put it all together on a site to share!
The site is: www.equicationatlas.com. The name is a mix of equitation and vacation. Dorky, I know!
Let me know what you think and if you have any feedback. I've never made a website before and realize it is pretty amateur. I hope it is at least straight forward and user friendly.
FYI This site is 100% free and has not been sponsored in any way. It is a personal "labor of love" project and I will make zero money off of it, nor do I have any plans to make it financially viable. My only goal is someone else finds it useful or inspirational, especially as the world starts to open up again.

Hey y’all, this might sound silly but I need to know because it’s been stressing me out. So I’m a new hire, I go in tomorrow for training, and when I asked the HR rep that called to schedule my training if there was a certain door to go through as an associate and she said the lumber door. She also said, “not the one next to customer service, but the other one”... customer service is near the entrance. So... is that the exit door?? Pls help. I’m stressed

2021.04.20 02:12 brittneystaubin Endo Bloat
Hello! I have suspected endometriosis, but not officially diagnosed. I have been scouring the Internet, but have not been able to find the answers I am looking for in regards to my question. My question is: does endo bloat happen or worsen the day after masturbation or having sex for any of you? That’s when it gets to be at its worst for me personally. It affects my digestion, but the pain isn’t excruciating, more so extremely uncomfortable.

2021.04.20 02:12 Jump-Careless Gear
This is a LONG post, but hopefully worth it's length.
So I see a bunch of people asking "What should I pack?". And a lot of bits and pieces of advice listed afterward.
I thought maybe I'd make a post about what to pack, why to pack it, where to get it, how to maintain it, etc.
I've done some hitchhiking, and even more living out of backpacks over the years. I've traveled with not much more than a toothbrush before, and I've also carried right around 100 lbs of gear across country before. I've had injuries because I didn't maintain my gear or my body correctly. So maybe I can impart some wisdom to people out there trying to figure out what to pack for their adventures.
And if you've got something to add to the list, please do so.
So, start with a backpack (or rucksack, bergen, etc). 35-45 liter is, I think, just about the right range to look for. 30L is borderline too small. You'd have to be traveling very minimally and/or have exactly the right setup to pull it off. You might not be able to carry extreme cold weather gear in a pack of this size, but you also won't be lugging a giant ruck everywhere at 30L. It will be easier to blend in in a city, but will be hard to find something with an adequate frame.
40L is right around the lowest capacity large backpack. It still isn't an overwhelming size, but it's going to look big when it's loaded. It should be pretty easy to find something bombproof with a frame (a medium ALICE is about 36L). You can carry mountain gear with it, but you might not be able to carry much else.
Some of the problems I've had with big packs, and part of why I avoid them, I have a bad habit of picking up interesting things on the side of the road. Stuff that might be useful, whatever. If I have a 60L pack, it will eventually be full. I might not even know what's in it after a while. So I opt for small and being really picky about what goes inside the pack.
A big pack sticks out in a crowd. It's one thing to be hiking a trail somewhere, when everyone is carrying a backpack. It's another thing entirely to be hanging around in a city and being judged because of your giant backpack.
Right now I've got two different 36L packs, both basically the same design. For me they are just about perfect.
The type of pack.
Frames are nice when you're carrying a lot of weight a lot of miles.
I don't like zippers, personally. I don't want the main compartment of my pack to rely on zippers. They're a lot harder to fix on the side of the road. It's a different challenge to overstuff them. In my opinion, avoid them if you can. a top-loader with a drawstring and a two buckle flap is ideal. They're easy to overload if you need to ( a 40L might actually hold about 60L if you do it right). You can fasten a roll under the flap. The flap does a pretty good job of keeping rain out. A drawstring and two buckles are three easily repairable points of security for your stuff. So, style wise, that's what I'd recommend.
Military surplus gear is great. Relatively cheap and just about as sturdy as you can possibly find. Some of the new US stuff is a little weird, and the current field packs are HUGE. I haven't used them yet, so I can't say much more about them than that. Old ALICE gear will serve you well, though. It might be heavy and uncomfortable, but it will go anywhere you want to go and carry anything you can manage to put in it or strap on it.
Try not to get something that screams out expensive.
External pockets for water bottles that you can reach while you're walking are kind of a must have. You really don't want to have to carry your water in your hands all the time or have to stop and unload the pack to get to your water every time you want a drink. Some kind of system to attach water bottles to the outside of the pack to serve the same purpose works well, too (military). If you use a camelbak type setup, it's good to have backup in the form of bottles.
So, 30L is crazy small, 60L is crazy huge. Frames are nice for heavy loads. Surplus gear is excellent. 35-45L is, in my opinion, kind of the sweet spot.
What to put in the pack???
Sleeping gear. Sleeping gear gets pretty personal, and really changes depending on the season and area you're traveling in. It's worth noting that, if you're going cross country, you might travel through numerous drastically different environments in a short amount of time. What you need in the rockies is different than what you need in the desert, the deep south, the west coast, etc. You should have some idea what you can handle with what you've got (you will certainly learn what you can handle with the gear you've got in your first night trying to sleep in it).
There's a big difference between being able to survive something and being able to sleep comfortably. You at least want to be able to survive.
Sleeping gear and water are probably the two heaviest things you'll need to carry. Definitely the most important, anyway.
I'd recommend some kind of ground covering. Maybe a tarp that's roughly 6' by 4'. Maybe a heavy contractor bag. Doesn't have to be much, but it's a really nice thing to have. They can usually pack down pretty small, you can usually find them pretty cheap (or even free). They make good cover in the rain if you need it. You might consider a heavy poncho. Old military ones are meant to function as ponchos, tarps, sleeping bag covers, tents.
Modularity in sleeping bags is nice. A lightweight bag meant for a relatively high temperature, with a light weight sleeping bag liner to boost the effective temperature rating of the sleeping bag, with a goretex bivy sack to put all of that in and some serious cold weather clothing to wear to sleep in will serve better than one extreme cold weather bag (in my opinion). That would be a sort of ideal setup to go most places most times of the year, I think. There is a huge variety of stuff available in all of those categories, sometimes it comes down to what you happen to be able to find.
Wool blankets are awesome. They're heavy (about 10 lbs each), so they aren't really fun to carry. They're bulky. They'll keep you warm when they're wet. They can actually keep you pretty dry. They're fire resistant. They last forever (I have one that was made in 1942. It's been all over two countries since I've owned it). You can wear them like a coat (or a cape). If you're staying in areas where it doesn't get killer cold at night or sleeping on the beach they're nice to have. If you can't find a sleeping bag but you can find a wool blanket, get it.
Military poncho liners are also pretty great. They still do something to keep you warm when they're wet, only weigh about a pound, and can be tied in to a poncho or a tarp to function as a sleeping bag. Supposed to function as a roughly 50 degree(f) bag. Cost around $30.
Bivy sacks are great. They'll keep you dry and roasting alive. Hell of a lot more manageable than a tent.
That being said, what you might be willing to deal with and what I might be willing to deal with as far as comfort while sleeping goes are probably two entirely different things. If you spend enough time outside, you'll figure out what works for you. You should really carry something, though. I've spent nights walking around all night so I wouldn't freeze to death because I didn't have any sleeping gear at all. Spent nights shivering in wet sleeping gear because it didn't offer any insulation when wet. Used a space blanket because it was the only thing I had (and that is a nightmare). I've also slept in complete comfort on the side of the road in a snowstorm in Wyoming before, and had the right gear to remain comfortable while sleeping partially submerged through a cold, wet, windy night in NorCal in the winter.
I wouldn't use a tent. I can't honestly say I'd advise carrying one. I wouldn't want to have to set up a tent in the middle of the night somewhere and tear it down and pack it up again in the morning and try to keep track of all it's parts. They're also easy to see. I want to be almost impossible to see while I'm sleeping outside. There are too many horror stories about stuff happening to people while they're sleeping. I've known a few people who've experienced some of those horror stories first hand. Thankfully, I haven't. The one place in your equipment that I would recommend camo is in the outermost layer of your sleeping gear. Whatever that happens to be. And that you figure out how to set up your camp so that you basically can't be seen until someone trips over you. Tents aren't really handy for that. I don't even want anyone camping near me with a tent. There's also the possibility of getting a camping ticket. You're a lot more likely to end up with a ticket if you're camped in a tent than you are if you can't be seen through binoculars from ten feet away. Get a surplus bivy sack instead. Or even a dirt brown colored bed sheet to through over your sleeping bag. Don't get a tent.
I'd also say (on a more positive note), when I'm sleeping outside, I want to be outside. I want to see stars. I want to breathe fresh air. I don't want to be trapped inside of a tent. So even if none of the above were true, camping tickets didn't exist, nothing terrible ever happened to anyone while they were sleeping outside. I probably still wouldn't use a tent.
A general note about military gear.
"Military-style" and "military-spec" are not the same thing as military issue. If you're looking for surplus gear, get the actual military issued surplus gear. It will have a big square tag in it or on it somewhere with an nsn number and a lot of information about what it is and how to take care of it. It's usually sturdy enough to get thrown out of an airplane and run over by a truck and still be basically good to go (although you shouldn't try to do either of those things with it). Military "style" or "spec" might be decent gear, but it also might not. Better to just get the real deal if you're going that route and you have a choice in the matter.
Layers are a pretty good way to go. You should be able to wear any of the layers individually for at least some amount of time. You don't really need extra, necessarily, just enough to be able to change out layers regularly to deal with weather and/or keep them clean. You can wash one layer while you wear another. You can stop at thrift shops wherever you go to change out your gear as needed.
I only wear natural materials, if I possibly can. Synthetic = plastic, and I really don't want anything to do with plastic if I can help it. So, cotton, linen, wool, silk. Some variation of a combination of those materials will cover you for most things while remaining pretty light and small and readily available at thrift shops for cheap.
Linen is really strong, and it breathes really, really well. It is the best for hot weather. Cotton doesn't breathe as well, but it's cheap and can be pretty sturdy. It's generally easier to find than linen. I usually try to wear it as the outermost layer. Kind of a sacrificial layer. I'd rather rip the cotton than any of the others (if something must get ripped), and I'd rather have the sun wear it out than any of the others.
Silk is really, really warm, and it will keep you warm when it's wet (believe it or not). It actually beats wool for both of those things. I can be comfortable wearing wool at much higher temperatures than silk, and I think a paper thin silk shirt under a heavy cotton button down shirt keeps me warmer than a wool jacket that might weigh more than ten times as much. It's also really easy to build up several layers of silk without adding a bunch of bulk. Keep your eyes open at the thrift shop. I keep at least two layers (one heavy and one or more light) of silk shirts and pants as my cold wet weather gear. The sun will disintegrate silk pretty fast, though, so it's good to have something to wear over it.
Wool over the top of all of that. Honestly, super baggy slacks from a suit are ideal, I think. I get them about ten inches larger around the waist than what I actually need in a pair of pants and then add a drawstring to them. Then I can comfortably wear two or three other layers (as needed) under that for further insulation from the cold and wet. Cheap, light, and pack down small. Available pretty much anywhere.
A couple of extra pairs of socks, maybe one pair of thick wool ones stowed in a ziplock bag for emergencies. Keep your socks (and your feet) clean and dry, and change the socks regularly. I almost lost a leg in Texas because I didn't do that enough. Mostly just luck that I didn't. Don't do that. Keep your socks and your feet clean.
Shoes should be comfortable enough to walk twenty miles carrying whatever you're carrying. Lightweight is nice. If they're light enough, you might even be able to carry a spare pair and change them out daily. If you stuff them with wadded up newspaper at night, it will keep them dry. It will also help keep critters out of them (shake out your shoes before you put them on!!). You can usually find newspaper for free.
A cheap pair of super lightweight flip flops shoved down in your bag somewhere to use while taking showers isn't a bad idea. You can probably find them at a dollar store.
Cinnamon is anti fungal. You can sprinkle some into your shoes before you put them on and it will go a long way toward keeping your shoes and your feet going. You can also buy it with food stamps. Any place that holds sweat against your skin all day, like shoes or backpack straps. Hit it with some cinnamon and see how that feels.
The single most useful thing you could own, I think, is a giant wool overcoat. Roughly knee length. If you were going to try to have one, single piece of gear, I don't know if you could find something more versatile than that. You can use it as a coat, a blanket, it will keep you warm (and mostly dry) when it's wet. If you aren't carrying a huge pack on your back, they aren't bad to wear when it's hot. You can throw it over your sleeping bag and have another nice warm layer. You can use it to carry other stuff if you need to. If it's big enough, you can wear or carry a ton of layers underneath it. Probably enough to make up for not having any other gear.
Anyway. Clothes are easy to find pretty much everywhere. You probably don't need to pack a lot of extra clothes.
You really don't need a huge knife for pretty much anything. It's just going to cause you trouble.
Carry a can opener. I really like the one on my swiss army knife.
Carry water. Drink it regularly. Probably ought to have two quarts/liters (at least). A matching set of bottles is nice to keep your pack balanced. Buy filtered water in AZ.
A heavy garbage bag to put all your stuff in inside of your pack. If you know it's going to be really wet for a while, that's not a bad way to keep your stuff dry. Your pack will probably do a pretty good job by itself, but the extra insurance is nice. A dry pack (giant, rubberized backpack) is probably more trouble than it's worth in most circumstances. I haven't had one, so I can't really have an opinion about them, but I've always managed to be able top keep my gear pretty dry in a regular backpack, and a regular backpack can breathe, so you're less likely to deal with mold.
A couple of ziplocks for small stuff you want to keep dry and/or separated from other things.
A sharpie for making signs. It might even be worth it to carry a notebook with a page dedicated to each cardinal direction (North, South, East, West). Then if you're going East, you've got a sign that you can hold that says "EAST Please" already made.
A smallish map (pocket sized road atlas) of whatever country you're in. Preferably notebook style rather than fold up.
An uninsulated metal cup. You can eat out of it, you can drink out of it, you can cook in it. You can't cook in an insulated cup.
If you like coffee, tea, mate, some other kind of hot drink, a thermos of around 20 oz is nice to have. You can fill it up at a gas station wherever you stop and have at least one hot cup of whatever stowed away for the road.
A rechargeable flashlight isn't bad to have.
I have to carry a bug net. I swell up pretty bad when I get bitten on the face by mosquitos (or something). Not bad enough to fear for my life, but extremely uncomfortable. You might not need it or want it, but I can't go without it in buggy areas.
I like liquid soap in a small nalgene bottle. I can pick up Dr Bronners where they sell it, or I can refill the bottle from gas station bathrooms if there is no other choice. I'd rather have the liquid than a bar. Got to have a good bottle to put it in, though.
I'm sure I could keep listing things here, but that's pretty much my basic advice for gear for wherever.
And with all of that said, most importantly, just don't stress too much about trying to find exactly the right gear to go somewhere you've never been in a way you've never traveled before. There's no way to really know what you will personally find absolutely necessary in circumstances completely out of your realm of experience until you've experienced them. And if the area you're trying to go to has a completely different environment than the one you live in now, it might be a lot easier to find adequate gear there than it is where you're at. Or, in other words, you'll probably find what you need along the way (the road will provide). As long as you've got a blanket and a toothbrush and a bag to carry them with (and you aren't trying to head to Alaska in the middle of winter with no money or something), you'll probably be alright. You might have a couple of really rough nights, but you'll find what you need. If you want to go, then whenever the world feels safe enough to travel in (cause it sure feels crazy to me right now), go travel. Don't build up expectations. Sometimes it's going to suck. Sometimes it's going to be awesome. It's always going to be beautiful, even if you can't see it at the time. If you don't go do it, you might not ever go do it. And you should go do it if you want to, so there.
