comment Walking through a Thigh-high snow
@fgysin: Hi, surely not offended. And, probably will see to it. I'll be leaving for an expedition this weekend, attempting a 7000 m peak in Himalayas. Lets see if I at all get to login here again :D

comment How to prepare for and survive wildfire?
Good answer. +1 for explaining the understory fire and how they spread over a very limited area. These are very common here in India.

comment Snake dangers while hunting in the desert?
@OlinLathrop: Thanks Olin. No, I haven't been there, but I have studies Rattlesnakes very keenly over the years. The Viperdae snakes that are found in India (Russell's Viper, Bamboo-Pit Viper and Saw-Scaled Viper) inhibit almost same properties apart from that Iconic Rattle at the tail. Rest of the habits, habitats are almost same. I come across those snakes at least once a week. I had been a part of the local animal rescue team half a decade ago, so I have had experiences with Viper snakes.

comment How do you repair a plastic kayak?
@Niall: 3 Minutes? Just that? LOL. I have seen a Kayak that endured an entire weekend with a duct tap fix. You might want to consider trying a different brand of duct tape.

comment Fitness for hiking to Everest base camp
I agree with @Ben here. No one can tell you what exercise would be sufficient for an individual. For example, I don't go gym at all, never tried it. And counterpart to 50 km cycling a week: I cycle close to 25 km a day for 5 days a week and then either a 2-day trek, or 100+ km cycling on weekend. Yet, Ben wouldn't simply bet on my EBC success.

comment When I do and when I don't need shoes with ankle supports?
@ShemSeger: I agree. I hate it when even small stones get into my shoe and start rolling underneath.

comment Pack of coyotes in my neighborhood
Hi John. Welcome to The Great Outdoors. While, I personally appreciate your efforts to put forth the data you have observed, and find it interesting, though it doesn't answer the question directly. May be you can frame it in a way to answer the question.

comment Is Kamikaze knot safe with ropes of different diameters?
@Ben: Please see the edits. But, yes you are right about rappelling on a single strand and then retrieving the rope.
