comment How to make a fully-enclosed tarp setup with a 1.4 x 2.4 meter tarp, for one person?
Indeed, stake down the corners so that the tarp is nice and taut and use rocks or logs to further secure the sides when you can. I've found that this keeps out virtually all rainfall. If the wind gets strong enough to move logs around, then the rain is probably the least of your worries.

comment Water filter that handles mercury?
I don't think there are any filters or purifiers that can consistently remove dangerous amounts of mercury.

Are you having problems when rinsing out your water bladder with clean water and just hanging it out to dry?

comment What are some emergency water purification methods?
Like I said, it has to be done carefully. Even so, it wouldn't 'blow up,' but it could potentially rupture and leak.

comment How do you flavour your water on camping trips?
If you plan on making tea out of surrounding vegetation, only use leaves and roots that you know aren't going to kill you :)

comment GPS navigation device or app that allows entry of UTM coordinates?
Indeed, the web sites do not give a ton of detail. Granted, the newer GPS units are so powerful that listing out every feature would take pages. I've used the Garmin GPSMAP 60, 62, and 64 series extensively and any of those models can do the same tricks with UTMs.

This is sourced from the real list we use whenever we enter the field, even for training ( I can email it if you want, I just don't know if I have permission to make the document public ).
