comment How to prepare for and survive wildfire?
ab2 you are right, after further research dowhill is safer, in that fire moves faster uphill. I've changed my answer accordingly.

comment Practical uses for commando/Australian rappel?
I'd like to add that the main disadvantage of aussie style rappel is that it is only effective when there is some sort of slope to run down on. For vertical rappel you end up hanging and spinning like a spider.

comment Running in bear country
I live in Banff and the joggers here bring bear spray, and if you're jogging anywhere that's not open you're advised to make noise (sing, shout regularly) and not to wear headphones.

comment Running in bear country
Current line of thinking is that bear bells are ineffective, as they aren't loud enough, I've seen research but this is the best link I can find right now: calgaryjournalonline.ca/news/34-news/…

If you're touring then you've got a shovel, right? Learn how to make a Snow Cave into the side of a mountain. youtube.com/watch?v=XOJQPz1s-1c

comment How to get a top-mount cooking burner for 20 lb propane tank?
What happens when the tank falls over and its weight is enough to bend your top-mounted stove? Bad idea.

comment How do I determine if a tent can handle strong wind?
Exactly. If you set it up right it shouldn't blow through much, but I always find it a bit drafty, and certainly doesn't retain heat as much. On the plus side, no condensation :-)
