comment Thermal insulation of truck cap
offtopic, but I used to have a favourite rock that I would keep in the campfire and put in the bed of my truck when it was time to sleep, gives hours of extra warmth.

comment Energy bars for outdoors activities: what are the important criteria?
This is the best list. I'd like to add that bars usually fall into two camps: those that offer about 1/3 of all nutrients for the day (e.g. meal replacement) and those that offer specific nutritional features (e.g. protein bar). There's often an overlap of the two, but they are distinct groups.

comment Trek-able peaks in the himalayan range
Can you elaborate on what's required to summit? E.g. can it be scrambled? Do you need to overnight?

comment How to prepare for and survive wildfire?
I'm sure a lot can be added to this post, it's mostly general thoughts, I feel that since I've moved to the Canadian Rockies I've been exposed to forest fires every summer for the past five years, and have been evacuated on more than one occasion.

comment Trekking poles on planes
I can corroborate this inconsistency, I've brought home kids baseball bats (soft, foam) and sometimes they let me bring them onboard, sometimes I have to leave them at security. I wouldn't risk it, better to pay $25 to have them checked then to have to locate a shop and buy them all over again at your destination.
