comment Is it possible to put a kayak in the water in Berlin and reach the Baltic via lakes and rivers?
what do you mean by minimal portage? If there's no way to go from a to b you'll need to portage from A to B which thus is the minimum.

comment How To Quickly Warm A Tent
@shawty but how does one find dry rocks except your in a dry area? Rocks in a forest or in the mountains will most likely be damp

comment How To Quickly Warm A Tent
i wouldn't recommend this, as the stones you'll find will most likely crack up/explode. In an emergency as a last resort yes, but i'd definitely wouldn't use this as best practice. Worst case is that the stone cools down and cracks in the process, have fun with all those hot rocks in your tent.

comment How To Quickly Warm A Tent
i'll post as a comment to tell you how to not do it, i turned on my stove in my tent to heat it up in winter, but one day my tent catched fire and consequently it burned all of the stuff inside. So my tip, don't heat it with your stove

comment Why is it unsafe to handle metallic equipment with bare hand at higher altitude?
Not sure if at -70 degrees this will not get you more stuck to the surface, will not try it out

comment Commuting by canoe
@JimBeam - By Private Motorized Transport (Car, Motorcycle) including Traffic 40-50minutes, by public transportiation 45minutes (and alot of people), by kajak (4min motorcycle, 15minutes kajak) +10 for putting it in the water and taking it out. This makes a total of 29minutes. So i'd say it gives me alot of time i can let my mind loose, i guess that's a good thing.

comment Knee pain when descending a mountain
@WedaPashi let it be said this is a last resort, but if you descend backwards you can ease the pain from walking downhill as the forces are different from walking forwards. If you have something like a trail i think the risk is calculatable, if you however have no trail i would choose to rest for a night.

comment Knee pain when descending a mountain
In the worst case where you don't have painkillers or a better trail, walk carefully backwards.

comment What to consider when buying fins for recreational snorkeling?
+1 but i'd add that you have to take in account, that your feet won't get sore, this ruined my holidays once. Since that time i recommend neopren shoes and fins with straps because this won't kill your feet as quickly
