comment Bag technique for washing clothes while backpacking?
Looks fine to me now, i'm actually not such a {curseword}. @JustinC - Sometimes we have to admit that companys do make good products, and i don't see anything wrong with mentioning the product aslong as he doesn't put affiliate links in there. I think this could be achieved by a plate with rough surface. Just remove sharp edges and put this thing into a drybag, there are also washingboards available which look like they could do the job too.

comment What size dry bag is best for keeping and washing clothes?
Drybags are absolutely disgusting for storing laundry, i learned that the hard way when paddling from Zürich to Amsterdam, really. If you really have to get a drybag, i'd recommend small ones, as you need to compress that bag anyways, just be carefull with zippers and other sharp edges, as they might pierce your drybag. Just to stress things out again, don't use a drybag for smelly stuff.

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.

@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

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.

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

Not sure if at -70 degrees this will not get you more stuck to the surface, will not try it out
