comment Do reusable “hand coolers” exist?
We have little packs like this amzn.com/B000P3GXLM in the freezer for when the kids get bonked on the head. May also work for you.

comment Is it dangerous to sleep in a tent alone in a forest in -20?
I would still have concerns about security but that might just be me. Best of luck to you. I don't think I could live that frugally.

comment What can I do to keep my hands warm while using touchscreens in the winter?
@Amine I live in NE and visit Canada sometimes in the winter. Around 32F/0C is when I am most likely thinking. Anything much colder and I will probably not be caching :).

@gerrit I have the devices in my pocket when not in use so they don't get as cold as something on the front of a bicycle.

From the wikipedia article: "capacitive sensing is a technology based on capacitive coupling which takes human body capacitance as input". Sounds like it just conducts the charge from your body. Will that work thru gloves?

comment What are examples of inappropriate places to hide a geocache?
I'm new to this site but have followed a number of other SE sites. I think some domains are easier to have questions with definitive answers while others will have more with subjective responses. I read (and responded) to other geocaching questions on the site and feel this follows in their vein. I don't think there is an endless list of places to discuss.

comment Why don't we apply the principles of layering when it comes to pants?
Agreed I often use at least two layers while skiing and have used all three on occasion.

Thanks for the info. Didn't know about the licensing requirements for certain bands.

Essentially yes. Just the more modern term for it I guess.
