comment Blisters on small of back
@Escoce: Well, I'll let the OP decide if its a boil or a blister. And, with all due respect to you and what you know, I have had suffered a boil in less than an hour. So, boils can pop-up while you make a 4000 ft climb for the day. Again, I'll OP and his doctor decide if its a boil or a blister. For what I have experienced, in most of the cases when a pack rubs against skin, result is a Chafe, or a Boil. Blisters do need friction, but they also need lesser air contact and a bit of moisture/wetness.

Mate, this pic comes closest to what we have, just the difference is the grass is fully dried.

comment What is the most efficient DIY alcohol stove for narrow pots?
@Dakatine: Yeah, makes sense. Actually I am at fault. I posted the answer and as soon as I did, I saw the tag "liquid-fuel-stoves". I even had a thought whether I should delete the answer or not for it being not applicable to liquid fuel stoves.

comment Meeting an unknown snake on the trail; what is the best thing to do?
@dkippers: I applaud at your ability to identify and distinguish between rattlesnakes. Though it is so, with all due respect I disagree that this an overkill of a thought. Not everyone can identify All snakes in a particular region all the time. If the answer was so simple as in you are saying, we would have never heard of snake bites. I can identify snakes that I see in my region, you can identify snakes in your region. But that may not be the case for someone else reading this answer right now.
