comment Is it warmer to sleep naked in a sleeping bag?
good question, I also heard that you shouldn't wear too much things - little paradox - don't know if it's true. But I think one should at least wear t-shirt and pants.

THanks, but if you are on the desert island weeks and months, you cannot burn fire all the time. And making triangle from just wooden things isn't very onspicuous I think. Any static pattern that can be very flagrant?

comment How can I stay warm in subzero weather?
"for obvious reasons it doesn't want to reduce blood flow to your head" - that's a clear nonsense. I have my blood flow to my head reduced many times when some nice women is around :-) For obvious reasons :-)

comment What should I do when I'm lost?
"you should make unnatural patterns ... A universal distress signal is 3 flags or 3 triangles." - you inspired me to write another quesion. Is that what you meant with those patterns?

comment How can you navigate without a compass or GPS
You are wrong! Southern cross is not an analogy of the Polaris in the southern hemisphere! THe Southern Cross is rotating and need not necessarily point to the south.

comment What fps does a bow need to hunt moose?
@EdwardThomson, no, it wasn't rude. Well, I also eat meat from time to time, but I can't imagine to hunt such a beautiful animal just for fun. Sorry. Mat, thanks for the photo, it's really nice.

comment Where in Europe is wild camping permitted?
@StefanoBorini, OK. In English, AFAIK, city does mean only the city itself, so one should probably use commune or municipality. Probably question for English Language and Usage :-)
