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 Should a hiker be concerned about wolves in the back-country?
I would like to know this as well. I don't frequent areas with wolves usually, but it's always good to be prepared.

comment Sleeping with two people in one hammock
Glad to help! Also don't accept just my answer too quickly. Someone else may have a better answer than me. There are some knowledgable and experienced folks here. By the way, having a DoubleNest for just yourself is pretty nice.

comment How should I treat hypothermia?
Also I highly recommend taking a class in Wilderness First Aid or higher. It will better prepare you to deal with topics like these. This question deals with some programs to consider.

comment How should I treat hypothermia?
Treatment differs for different stages of hypothermia. Are you asking about 1st stage/mild hypothermia (fine motor shivering, "umbles",...), severe (no shivering, unresponsive,...) or the spectrum in between? Hypothermia is a process and the further it progresses the harder it is to overcome, especially in backcountry scenarios.

comment How could I treat scrapes outdoors without a first aid kit?
I'm with @LBell on this one. I can't imagine this is sound medical advice. It would be great to know if there are any studies, documentation,etc to back this up. I've never ever been told by any medical professional to do such as this. I know for a fact WMI doesn't teach this.

comment Can I eat rotten meat and carcass providing enough cooking?
This seems rather unclear as to what is actually taking place. Is the meat being boiled? Is it being washed before it's cooked? Is this a step-by-step description? 2600+ days? Why can this potentially very dangerous answer be trusted other than "I'm still here?"

comment Is my tent pole a lightning rod?
I think you're over-thinking it. If you're tent is the tallest thing around, then picking a better campsite is the bigger issue to ponder. The Mega Mid is nice piece of gear by the way.

comment How do I tie a slackline with only carabiners and webbing?
I used to know a method using only webbing and carabiners because that is what I did, but it's been so long now that I can't remember what I did well enough to depict it as an answer yet. I'll get my gear out one day when it's not freezing and try to work it out.
