comment What is the most efficient food to take a for a 12-15 day hiking trip?
@BenCrowell - ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10737847 The risk is minimal, which is why I said 'potential', but the risk is there and to call my claim "totally" false is hyperbole. There have been confirmed cases of Giardia in the back country. Also, Giardia is not the only parasite out there. As someone who has personally had amoebic dysentery from contaminated back country water... it's not something I'm willing to take chances with even if the odds ARE small. Using a filter is far less hassle than another bout of that.

comment Pressing the knee while ascending
My guess is that it's "easier" because you are transfering some of the effort to lift your upper body from your thigh to your arms. However you are also exerting that force through your knee at an odd angle; Essentially you are applying that force straight to the joint rather than through the supporting muscles. (as a comment, not an answer because this is just my speculation).

This question is pretty broad. I would suggest boiling it down to just your second bullet, as that will make it more answerable.

comment What size dry bag is best for keeping and washing clothes?
@LuizBorges -- Are you asking what is better for storage, or are you planning to use the bag to wash the clothes? This seems like two separate questions.

comment Is it safe to put snow in water filtration?
@nhinkle -- Agreed. I avoid filters in freezing conditions and rely on boiling.

Core exercises won't affect the IT band at all really.
