comment Looking for a boot recommendation
If you go the rental way, try calling Gear Up Sports gearupsport.com in Canmore, they don't mention it on their site but they rent mountaineering eqpt. Wish I could answer you but I don't know anything about mountaineering.

comment How to treat shin splints while backpacking
Doctors can prescribe up to 3,200mg a day, so 4x200mg means you've hit your daily dose in 16 hrs.

comment How do you punch out toes in ski-touring boots?
Is punching out always done with heat? I've got another pair of Solomon boots where the inner left ankle creates a pressure point by afternoon when I'm skiing all day. What other techniques are there?

I'd like to add baby/talcum poweder to the list: works in hair to cut down greasiness, in the underwear to deal with sweat/crotch rot, and in socks.
