comment Cheese and eggs on backpacking trips
I've been told that european eggs aren't refrigerated because the natural wax on the egg is maintained, while it is washed off on North American eggs, which is why they require refrigeration. Can anyone shed some light on this?

comment Are there significant behaviour differences among bear species to adopt different safety rules?
I complete agree with Russell, play dead until it bites, then fight back. Also, bring bear spray when travelling in the woods.

I can confirm in the Canadian Forces we did similar (sleeping bag liner inside sleeping bag inside arctic sleeping bag with hot water bottles inside).

comment Performance of fur garments?
A big difference between fur and down/synthetic/synthetic fur is that fur has a leather backing, usually adding considerable weight.

comment What shoes keep me warm in the cold?
I was paid to wear army boots and I can assure you that they weren't good in cold weather. Wool socks definitely make a big difference, but all the militaries have significantly revamped their army boots in the last ten years because they realized their footwear was behind the times.

comment Winter food : Should I change my habits for winter?
Energy bars are a good example of a food which turns to rock in cold temperatures. Keep a bar in an interior pocket of your jacket or be prepared to break a tooth.
