comment Is it a good idea to grind Esbit fire tabs?
what I care the most, though, is it's ability to burn as efficiently as the solid (non-ground) version. I could grind a few tabs just before heading out, so not to have issues with long-term storage. Although the chance to get cheap bulks is nice... first I'd want to know if it's effective or not. I'll try it myself if nobody did yet.

Thank you (and thanks for fixing my English as well :) ). Do you think that ground hexamine would lose its features even if sealed in an airproof container?

In my experience, matches - even the stormproof, brand new ones - are subjected to wind and humidity (not to mention rain). Once lit, they burn, but they are not always easy to light, especially if they got wet. A firesteel is much sturdier in this sense.

I just found that hexamine (the main Esbit tabs component) used to be sold grounded already. amazon.co.uk/800g-Hexamine-Powder-Backpacking-Bushcraft/dp/…

By the way, I am quite astonished that they didn't teach you this at the class!

This is called "Freezer Bag Cooking" at it's a common technique among ultralight backpackers.

I think that this is what the author had in mind. To just "practice" trad climbing one may want to answer "do practice it".

comment How to carry fat, greasy foods like tahini sauce and peanut butter?
Thank you, but I am searching for something softer and somewhat pliable. Those containers look bulky no matter if they are empty or not, thus reducing plenty of space in the pack.

Would such a seal stand if I - for instance - drop my bag on the ground, exhausted, forgetting of that fragile content? Or, if a fellow backpacker just sit on my pack? Thanks
