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.

I combine peanuts and raisins with chili powder, and that full-fills most of my snack needs when hiking.

comment What kind of mementos, if any, am I allowed to collect from State and National parks in small quantities?
Plus this will give some additional revenue to the park or local people which may aid in conservation.

Ever since I've watched through Leica & Swarovski looking through any other brand binocular has been a dissapointment.

comment Can I use a garbage bag to approximate pack size
BTW: when trying on backpacks in a shop, have them fill it with weight so you have a correct feeling of how the bag works for you.
