comment How much vertical distance is it possible to make in a day?
Great, thank you. Do you also have an idea about the fitness aspect, ie. how many meters can an average person realistically make in a day without getting exhausted?

Not sure. (Sorry, English is not my first language.) The total number of meters that you have to go upwards. This would include the distance that you have to descend and then climb up again, so that the number can easily be much higher than the highest peak on your route. Is that vertical distance?

Why is this worth a downvote, is the question unclear? I'm not looking for records, just trying to plan a hike that's within my possibilities.

comment How do I extend the life of waterproof leather boots?
Not sure how things work in your country, but here in the Czech Republic we have companies like Restday Zlín that will take an old leather boot and if the leather is still fine, they will replace the whole sole. I don’t have a personal experience, but the pictures look convincing and people are happy about the service. The price is around a quarter of the original shoe. Seems like a reasonable option to me.

Sorry, forgot about that. No experience, I have never repaired the seams.

I don’t. I would simply not camp there.

comment Cooking by pouring hot water into plastic bags?
The manufacturer says you can microwave the bags, but the bags are only known to withstand “defrosting and reheating” temperatures, not boiling. Pouring hot water into the bag ought to be fine by this logic, but I guess that’s subjective.

comment Cooking by pouring hot water into plastic bags?
I wouldn’t think about it if I could not reuse the bags. I figured that with a decent thickness they should be quite durable. Washing the pot takes time and water, and sometimes both are precious (like when sleeping in a bivy sack in the winter or rain).
