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 Painful leather hiking boots - persevere or give up?
More of an addition to the good comments below. Feel inside for loose tags, leather, and other non-essential bits. Trim or file these down smooth. Just be careful not to trim/file a structural seam.

comment What type of oil to use for axe heads
3-in-1 oil will work well in most cases. Since you are in Europe, the other concern may be cold. Many oils lose much of their protective qualities in cold. Boeshield T-9 is a good product in that case. boeshield.com

comment How to estimate is the branch thick enough to stand on it?
As the comment mentioned below, it's more about where you step. I have successfully climbed trees smaller than some of the limbs in your picture, on 1" branches, by putting my foot right against the trunk.

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages between gas, liquid and solid fuel?
@BenCrowell -- What stove do you have? My alcohol stove works great in 60F+ degree weather. However 40F and raining was a nightmare. I'd love to have a better one.
