A guy who is into a little bit of everything...music (listening and making it), photography, DIY, technology, the outdoors (hiking, backpacking, climbing...), and trying to live by grace through faith. I also currently work at a high adventure camp in the Southeast where I also do a little bit of everything...

Just throwing this out there, but could they have used or still use rock cairns as trail markers?

comment Trekking poles: what are the pros and cons of Anti-shock vs standard designs?
@BenCrowell - That may be, but I know that on my last trip where I borrowed some poles I found them almost indispensable for my knees compared to the previous trip without. So I know there is at least something to them. That's the only reason I'm now interested in them after years of thinking they were just another "accessory."

comment Is it safe to use denatured alcohol as an antiseptic?
@BenCrowell - That's an understandable question, but would you put gasoline in your wound? I certainly wouldn't. The denatured alcohol is tantamount to that. I just can't see any potential benefit outweighing the risk of pouring hazardous chemicals into an open wound.

Please feel free to add in sources for fiberglass insulation/wick other than the ones I listed. This stuff is used everywhere so I wasn't about to attempt to include them all.
