comment What are the different stages of frostbite?
Why why why didn't you head back as soon as the problem was discovered? Also, there is something seriously wrong with his new ski boots if they let his feet get that cold. These things are usually well insulated, so they were probably way too tight and cut off circulation. That begs the question why he went out at all with boots that must have felt tight right at the start.

comment Staying safe from hunters while hiking in France
Nice pictures, but some of them don't seem to have anything to do with your points. The one of Half Dome isn't anywhere near France, and I suspect a number of others aren't either.

comment Municipal invasive species committee experiences?
@Shem: Many invasive species infestations are too large and entrenched to remove reasonably, and would re-invade quickly anyway. Most of our activities will probably be public education, keeping a database, and letting the various groups already doing this work know what each other are doing. Since mitigation work will be done largely by volunteers, actual expenditure is mostly supplies. Several land owners are addressing this individually, and would probably welcome additional volunteer help. We'll start on public land, but ultimately you have to take a whole-ecosystem view.

comment Municipal invasive species committee experiences?
We had a meeting last night and formally decided to propose the applicator license thing to the town. It's a small town, and most people in town government and on volunteer committees know each other. I know how to proceed, which in this case is have a chat with the town manager. I was more wondering if anyone had been thru a similar process, discovered pitfalls, etc. We do have a botanist on the committee. We hope to get most things done with volunteer labor. That's generally how things like this are done in this town. We are volunteers too.

comment Municipal invasive species committee experiences?
I can't seem to find that. It would be good if you explained here what point you are trying to make, with a link as reference or background material. From the title I'm guessing this is the common argument that it's all nature and we should chill out and let whatever happen that is going to happen. If that's your point, please state it properly so that it can be properly responded to.

comment What is this marker stone
Then maybe it's marking the spot where the previous 125 mail wagons sank into the muck.

comment What is this marker stone
Just a guess, but BP could refer to Bundespost? That's the german post office, although theirs handles other communications means (or at least used to) also. I don't know what the markers might have been for, but that may give you some ideas on how to search.
