comment V-threads (Abalakov): How many holes are too many?
As a side note, it's reasonable to prepare your v-thread before the last man goes so that somebody does test it having a good ice screw backup. Also you shouldn't get any big falls while rappelling (except if you are starting with your anchor below you, which is very dangerous).

comment How can I vet a hiking partner without potential hard feelings?
Imo, running or a tennis match are not very good options compared to a day hike. These activities require no constructive interaction between the partners and won't indicate any problems besides general fitness. Maybe a session in a climbing gym will be better?

comment At what point do I need snow goggles or glacier glasses when hiking?
@senarvi, thanks for the comment, but the article lacks references and also doesn't clarify what's "high up in the mountains" - is it 2000 m or 6000 m, and also how much time a day they assume you spend among snow. I don't have a reference to reliable experimental data either - just the anecdotical knowledge of our mountaineering club. It says that factor 3 is ok up to say 3000 m, but higher up you'd better get 4. They cost almost the same anyway.

comment How to get a top-mount cooking burner for 20 lb propane tank?
Maybe they don't offer these because top-mount burners are less safe and you really don't want an accident with a 20 lb tank.
