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 Do iodine water treatment tablets have negative effects?
Depending on what you're trying to kill, you want to boil for at least 10 minutes. A couple of minutes is likely to kill anything a tablet would kill, but once you're boiling it, may as well leave it long enough to kill all the nasties ;)

comment Do iodine water treatment tablets have negative effects?
It appears to be banned in Europe, not because it's dangerous under normal dosage, but because it's not proven 100% safe under any dosage.

comment How to harden feet to avoid blisters on long hikes
(2) the fox walk is what we always used for stalking game. It's interesting to learn that it is also good for avoiding blisters. Thanks!

Revisiting this. I have to say that any advice that involves sleeping with damp clothes against the body is suspect.

I've added xpda's comment to this answer and upvoted his comment. I think the combination of those two methods is the ideal solution.
