comment What is scientific relation between body weight and backpack weight in mountain climbing?
20%? Yikes! Try 10% or lower. And keeping the distribution always at 40/60 is problematic. You want to vary this up and down while you walk according to what part of your body is tiring.

comment How should we split up a 3 person tent?
Well, that's my idea given the circumstance. My real idea is to pull out my soapbox on ultralighting, and ask why you're carrying a tent. ;)

comment What kinds of things are the “defensive driving” equivalent to handling campfires?
+1 Good answer. I'd also add, keep a container of water right by the fire. If the water is handy, you can put out the fire when it's small. If you have to go get water, that gives the fire time to spread.

...and they'll shatter when they hit the ground. You won't be able to hear it, of course.

comment Does whiskey help keep you warm in winter?
Yeah, it's overstating it to say it's not psychological - it certainly is partly that.

@RichardAtHome Makes sense. It'll burn hot sooner than the larger stuff.

Plus there's the joy of using something you made yourself.

comment Caveats of dual (propane, liquid) fuel stoves
Have you considered making your own stove? I'm not particularly handy, but I made my own cat stove for <$5. It's lighter than any commercial stove I could afford (about 2.3 ounces) and supremely reliable, since there are no moving parts. It burns alcohol, and fits inside my cookpot. Here's the one I made: royrobinson.homestead.com/Cat_Stove.html. There are fancier ones.
