@Ben Crowell Above you say "there is no clear benefit at all", but in link say "reduces strain on joints", this could be a benefit.

comment What is the longest time you can go, eating only freeze-dried food?
Two weeks was for dehydrated food. This is not as good as freeze drying, it spoiled the vitamins and the shelf life was not as long.

They are adding Manua honey, raisins and gogi berries to stop rickets and cheese for vitamins and calcium and special oil high in Omega 3, not cooked, eaten with a warm meal

comment Use of gore-tex for a DIY Double-layer hammock
Why would you want the underside of a hammock to be breathable? Do you go inside like a bivvy bag?

Also storage between seasons: like most stuff when stored avoid dampness, keep cool and dry.

comment Trekking poles: Collapsed or fixed?
If you are flying then some airlines require them to be able to pack in your luggage, or else you have to pay an expensive surcharge. So it may be best to get collapsable ones.

@Ben Crowell, In the link you say they reduce soreness and knee strain, this is more important for some people than the number of calories exerted.

comment How to minimise erosion damage to footpaths when walking?
Agree, stick to the paths. This means not walking around a puddle onto good ground. If there is an area of damage do not walk around it as this will just spread out the damage.
