comment What are some ways/devices that I can use to charge my batteries in the wilderness?
How long do you plan to be out? LED flashlights are so efficient that a single AAA can go a long time.

My point is that wherever you are going, you could learn about a few easy, tasty, nutritious plants beforehand.

comment How to avoid exploding rocks
Watch out for river rock - rocks with very smooth, rounded surfaces. They are likely to have ancient water trapped inside.

comment Backpacking or hiking in areas open to hunting
Would you add an orange cap to that? It's up high, which is good for visibility.

comment If lost in the wilderness, what is the first thing I should do?
