Personally I find StackOverflow to be good for personal development. We should all spend some time trying to debug code without a compiler now and then.

comment How does Frogg Toggs Polypropylene measure up?
Thank you. I backpack primarily on the east coast, so it's good to hear from someone in a similar climate.

comment Can bears smell empty beer bottles?
If you're in the middle of the woods passing out drunk, bears aren't really the largest concern.

comment Is titanium cookware safe?
@ppl-That's not absolutely true. Cookware "leaking" is more properly termed "leaching". The food will sometimes pull molecules/ions from the cookware.... based on the type of cookware and food. In addition some cookware (clay) is just not durable, and loses particulates. Glass (Pyrex) is a perfect example. Eating glass is very, very, VERY bad for you. But there is no risk of how the Pyrex will interact with your body because Pyrex isn't going to leech or lose particulates with anything you'd be cooking (and anything that makes Pyrex give off molecules/ions would probably kill you anyhow)

comment How long does water need to be boiled for to kill all bacteria / viruses?
@BenCrowell -- No, the statement was based on research I did at the time of clinical studies of the viability of various pathogens. Off the top of my head that was based on a paper I got from the CDC. I don't have it saved anymore.

It is highly dependent on the type of coal. Do you happen to know the type or have a picture?

comment What type of pole can be used for trout while backpacking?
Thanks for the feedback. Cheap is good in this case, because of the risk of breakage.

comment How to deal with hail outdoors without special equipment?
We had this happen one time but fortunately had already strung a tarp up which was enough to deflect the hail.
