comment What's the most remote place in the continental US?
I need to source it, but there is a trail in Yellowstone, in the south part of the park, wherein at one point you are 36 miles from any road whatsoever. That is the furthest from civilization anywhere in the lower 48.

comment Can pregnant women parasail?
I don't know about "no jerks except when you take off." Typically the captain of the boat is still there when you get back :)

comment What foods should I avoid when backpacking?
In all seriousness, the duration of your backpack is a factor. Short-term, lots of carbs are good. But over several days, your body eventually says, "STOP!!!"

comment What foods should I avoid when backpacking?
Personally, I tend to avoid foods that are messy and require all sorts of extra gear to eat. I mean, I suppose Lobster would be fine on a hike, but it'd probably slow me down as I brought out the tools...

comment Cheese and eggs on backpacking trips
Europeans don't refrigerate their eggs - I raise chickens, I collect eggs every day, and we put them on the kitchen counter. Once they go in the fridge, they can no longer be sold as "fresh," and they don't taste as good. Refrigeration makes them last longer, but once they are in the fridge, I'm told they need to stay that way.
