comment How can I effectively conserve water?
What is 'local/around here' for you? Do you have water access points (stream, lake, etc.) in the area you trek? Would they be an option for a refill?

comment How do I properly use the cinch-straps that came with my daypack?
@Ryley: Their suggestion is to adjust the lacing to your content. On their video they briefly show two different options. I was surprise they didn't have instructions on their website. Perhaps a generic question on the topic would generate more interesting answers.

comment Washing dishes with seawater or freshwater?
Regarding dishwashing (see original question), if I had to guess based on my small sample of personal observations, I would bet on the 'norm' being untreated water for dishwashing. ;)

comment Washing dishes with seawater or freshwater?
The question states all things being equal. Today I had the opportunity to ask biology professor the question. Of the top of his head, he would favor the sea water because of a (presumably) lower likelihood of encountering human pathogens. I understand that the salinity of the water does not prevent growth of all (or any) pathogens. However I would hypothesize that it have an influence on some relevant pathogens listed in the answer. I would be interested if somebody could shed some light on this aspect of the question with possibly data or scientific references.

comment What does “expedition-weight” mean with regard to clothing?
Yay for buzzwords :-) If you are suggested to buy "expedition-weight" gear items I would not limit myself to buying items that are described as such. Consider that you will likely be colder when you (or the expedition) stops.
