comment Leaving a fire unattended for a few hours, then returning
Also, where are you camping where it is light enough to hike for several hours after finishing a leisurely dinner? I would not want to be hiking at 9pm where I camp.

comment How do I protect my book(s) while backpacking?
Yes, we use a small dry bag for maps, books, our camping permit, and the like. Been doing it for 30 years and no book has come home damaged.

comment Optimal use of available GPS devices when stranded
Yup: without that then it has no role at all if you don't intend to use it to figure out how to exit the situation yourself, a condition stipulated in the question.

comment Should you avoid handling lambs?
Since the lamb was already following you, I think the risk that touching it would cause it to follow you is a bit of a moot point.

comment The re-hydration time for deydrated foods
It's the backbone of my backcountry spaghetti sauce (saute fresh onions and garlic, then add water, tomato leather, dehydrated tomato, mushroom, and cooked ground beef - simmer about 30 min then set aside wrapped in a towel while you use the stove to cook the pasta. Grate a little parmesan onto each serving. A similar approach for my chili. As well, a small bit of the leather will improve many sauces by adding a little umami and body.
