comment While backpacking, should one bring hand sanitizer, soap, or both?
Is plain soap friendly to the environment? I don't know the answer, but I am aware that many people carry "special" soap that claims to be biodegradable (i.e. Campsuds).

Why not? The question is about guylines on tents. Your answer is just as useful without telling him to use a tarp!

comment What kind of mementos, if any, am I allowed to collect from State and National parks in small quantities?
What exactly do you mean by "allowed"? It seems like you're asking a legal question, but you tagged it ethics/etiquette?

comment Do bag liners add the same warmth value to all sleeping bags?
I second everyone that questions the magic warming power of liners (especially the thin silk-type ones). Waterproof liners (aka vapour barriers) have a place in winter camping, but beyond that, insulated liners would be the only sure-fire way I can see to increase warmth!

I don't have a positive answer, but the Sierras are usually buried in snow til mid-June. So I would look into your backup areas more closely!

@DavidR - good answer. It rains a lot where I am, and wet ropes haven't made any difference to my rapping experience...
