comment For fording cold rivers, is there any special clothing (as opposed to makeshift bags or tightly connected raintrousers) to stay dry and warm?
This may sound ridiculous, but what about a lightweight inflatable boat of some sorts ?

comment Precautions needed to be taken regarding bee hives (honey) during Climbs
In addition to the stings, they can have different types of venom which you or anyone in your group may be allergic to without knowing so. One can react more,less or not at all depending on the type and amount of venom.

comment Precautions needed to be taken regarding bee hives (honey) during Climbs
Agressive nature depends a lot of the species involved (and whether they are solidary or live in groups), while some may only attack if you hit at them, or try to hold them in your hand, others will already attack if you come within a distance of the nest. Unless you can positively identify a specie as harmless I would agree it is better to avoid any bee/wasp hive as soon as you become aware of it.

comment Things to consider when buying sunglasses
Try to see how "flexible" they are. Some will bend, some will break. I used to have (quite expensive) plastic sunglasses with which you could pop the glasses in & out of the frame without damage. This may sound ridiculous or silly, but I imagine that in cases where many other sunglasses may have broken, with these I could just pop them back together.

comment Prevent mosquito bites: insect repellent patch or just eat vitamin B1?
May be worth mentioning that besides long sleeves & pants there are also certain fabrics which are tested to prevent moquito's penetrating it. In my experience these are usually not the lightest though. Some types of mosquitoes will sting you right through your cloths if thin enough.
