comment Are dark or bright clothings preferable in the desert?
@bashophil: You surely dont want to confuse between a Sunburn ( to exposed skin) & a rash that mostly happens to a covered part of the body, shoulders in case of bad cushion of Haversack belts.About Sunburn part of it, I would say, As long as you wear full sleeves and a proper long pant and have a Hat on your temple, you are unlikely to sustain major sunburns. At the most, you will have tanning. Now, say, if you already have had a sunburn on the previous day, and you put on darker cloths, black for that matter, you will struggle. Because in most of the cases, sunburns cover the sweat glands.

comment During a safety stop, how do I avoid my feet floating up?
@Gagravarr: And, with reference to does that explain why it's only happening during the safety stop, and not at depth?, refer to first paragraph of the answer. I had this problem that reflected in a manner that I had to constantly fight to not to roll, you may have been experience any of such a symptoms over that long time and didn't realize what go wrong, and just fight it or may have developed own ways to ensure that those dont trouble you any longer...
