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...

comment Do bag liners add the same warmth value to all sleeping bags?
I think this makes sense. Thermodynamics is the same backpacking or not. However I wish we had a way to confirm this by testing. The real question to me though is does it truly provide the indicated 15° boost. My guess is that figure is more marketing than real R-value.

comment How to find a secluded cabin to rent
I'm thinking the folks at the Travel Answers SE might possibly be better able to answer this question. As it stands it's ambiguous enough to maybe fit here, but certainly leans towards 'travel' over 'great outdoors'. That's my two cents anyway.

comment How to Clean Rock-Climbing Shoes
Just a word of caution from experience: drying wet, leather climbing (or other) shoes with heat will cause the leather to shrink some. So unless you want a smaller size, I recommend just using the fan or other air movement.

Coffee beans will also do the same thing.

Define clean: just get rid of the smell, or also get rid of all the dirt and grime accompanying the odor?

comment Advantages to hammock camping on multi-night trips
@JustinC - Great point. My goal was to try to create a question that would create a comprehensive summary of the pros of a hammock versus a tent, the converse of the question about the downsides. I could provide a specific season or scenario, but then it seems there would need to be a question for each season, etc. Regardless, it seems that some type of documenting of the advantages of hammocks would be useful to those who are either new to it or considering it. I think there is a definitive answer to this if I just figure out how to ask it the right way.
