comment During high-altitude lengthy expedition: To shave or not shave?
I would tend to agree. It would seem the primary discouragement is carrying the gear for shaving when weight is at a premium.

comment Black bears and torch lights
@OlinLathrop -- Oh, don't get me wrong, the risk presented by bears is miniscule. Miniscule may even be an exaggeration. My thought was more with regards to the behavior and that the article challenges some of the 'facts' about bear behavior that we've all come to accept.

"You don't even need to worry about a bear mugging you while you're hiking. It doesn't happen. " -- Yeah, it actually does happen, though not often. news.discovery.com/animals/zoo-animals/…
