comment What is the most efficient food to take a for a 12-15 day hiking trip?
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.

comment What should I look for in hiking binoculars
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.

comment Where in Europe is wild camping permitted?
Not an answer to your question, but .. I've put up a tent next to the car besides country roads in a majority of the European countries, Turkey and Morocco without much problems at all. Out of 200+ nights doing so, we've been sent away 3 times. Once by the police, twice by hunters. Find a spot where few people pass by, wait for darkness to put up your tent.

You can also get mugged/raped/killed walking to your hotel. I've wild camped with a tent throughout Italy, often even not that far from roads or towns, without any remark. I'd consider the risks limited and the same as the rest of Europe.
