comment Cheese and eggs on backpacking trips
In some places, chickens are normally given a Salmonella vaccine; in other places, they are not. Stack Exchange users are neither doctors nor food-safety experts. I recommend that you contact your local doctor or your local public health department, instead of relying upon the anecdotal experience of a bunch of random strangers on the Internet. Even if your doctor says it's OK to cook unrefrigerated eggs, you can still reduce your risk by cooking them until the yolk and white are firm. (Source: US DHHS.

Dr. Chris Braden of the US CDC writes: "You can’t smell or see Salmonella in or on food." He adds that Salmonella "causes more hospitalizations and deaths than any other type of germ found in food and $365 million in direct medical costs each year."

comment What clothing would be suitable for hiking and camping in 0°C?
In America, you can buy a cheap pair of jogging pants, made of a synthetic material, for US$10 at Walmart. Surely they don't cost that much more in your country. Are you fine with purchasing such pants? Alternatively, you may be able to buy some all-polyester dress pants from a second-hand charity shop for even less than US$10. You can stay dry and look sharp! :)

comment What kinds of stores sell multi-mode (adjustable-brightness) flashlights?
@BMitch: Fair point. Still, my question is broader than a usual "shop for me" question. Shopping-related questions are normally closed as "too localized". They are "unlikely to help any future visitors": but my question is very broad. Or "only relevant to a small geographic area": but mine covers at least the US and Canada. Plus, unlike the vast majority of shopping questions, mine is self-answered. Did you upvote me? :)

@theJollySin: Good point; thank you. I have added links to some related questions. You may also want to see the choose-a-light checklist then post your own personalized question. As for this question—"What kinds of stores sell multi-mode (adjustable-brightness) flashlights?"—if I may ask, did you upvote or downvote it? :)
