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.

I like the wear indicator note. That's really important.

comment How can I locate the leak in a inflatable pad
A note on this -- I have, as a result, completely abandoned the use of inflatable pads. If a leak springs it's nigh impossible to find in the back country. This leaves me with a flat pad and at risk for hypothermia.

comment Is titanium cookware safe?
@MarkE -- Which is perfectly congruent with my statement. Pyrex is not aluminum. I never said or implied aluminum was non-reactive. Again I would be careful of making generalities. "Non-stick cookware" covers a huge range of materials and products which do not all have the same properties.

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.
