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 tight should the line be kept for toproping?
@DavidR -- Everything is a life or death game. Driving is a life or death game even more so than climbing, but a lot of answers can be given about technique. I think there is also a huge difference between "training" and "practice". Even with professional training the odds of turning it correctly into practice the first go are insanely low. That takes real and regular practice regardless of how you're learning and regardless of what form you get your advice in. No one should out and try a risky activity with no practice, training or no.

@Roflo -- I think it's a tone thing. Your tone (to me) implied "don't even ask this here at all" as opposed to, "here's what you need to know to find a good trainer who can instruct you further". Make sense? (Oh, and gave you the +1, it wasn't meant to be heavy criticism and I do appreciate your answer)

I'm too much a noob to ask the nuanced version. For instance, what is traversing?

comment How tight should the line be kept for toproping?
Historically, I haven't found "proper training" to differ greatly from "proper well written answers". Training, just like internet answers varies widely in quality. The purpose of asking here is to get not just the answer, but also the community feedback on the answer to know it's quality. By gaining enough information in this forum, I am then able to determine if a trainer is a total idiot or not. "Proper training" is not a universal answer to all TGO climbing questions.

Yes, this is not a direct answer. IMO -- There's too much variance due to location to answer directly, and this is an important answer

"If you do not treat the water used for washing dishes" -- Incredibly bad idea. What is the point of purifying water to drink if you are going to contaminate everything else?

comment While backpacking, should one bring hand sanitizer, soap, or both?
I don't use soap to wash pots, and have never needed it. Instead I boil water to get the gunk off and just wipe out. Description of that cleaning process here: outdoors.stackexchange.com/questions/2985/…
