comment What is the safest way to purify water?
+1 Ben for mentioning steripens. However, re: "UV treatment (steripen) also kills all types of microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, and protozoan cysts)." UV treatment does not actually kill waterborne pathogens; it sterilizes them, thus rendering them incapable of reproducing once they've been ingested. It has even been suggested that ingesting the sterilized microorganisms may improve one's immunity to them, much like a vaccination.

This answer would probably fit better with the question "Should you pop a blister?"

comment Improvising Heavy Rain Protection for a Backpack
I think they help get the point across if you are not already familiar with those items. It seems that even SE is enjoying the Amazon link as it seems to know how to automatically redirect it. :) Of course, I'm not affiliated with zpack, amazon, loksak or litetrail.

comment How much warmth dead leaves add if placed under your tent/pad?
Both. The R-value rating should be independent of what is underneath. If you provide some data on either scenarios that could be useful as well.
