comment Drinking alcohol as the last choice in survival situation
Since water evaporates at higher temperatures than alcohol, the alcohol will drip out of the hose and the water will remain in the bottle – in theory. However, it will be hard to do this move even in a laboratory and I'm nearly sure it will work in the outdoors by just leaving the apparatus in the sun.

@ZachL Well, they might in the long run, but quite surely not over the time of a camping trip.

comment How to grade a trek?
Are you somehow affiliated with the website you link to (from looking at the team page I get the impression you are)? If yes, the stackexchange rules state that you should disclose that in a clear and obvious manner. Otherwise your answer is likely to be deleted as promotional spam. Even if you are not affiliated, it would be nice to learn why all travel agencies should follow the grading proposal of one such agency when grading their treks.

comment Is wild garlic edible? How do you prepare it?
Wikipedia says there is a whole bunch of plants known as wild garlic. Is it possible to narrow your question down a bit to one or two of them?

comment Where can I get long but light bottoms for water?
Already looked into running tights? They are of quite similar material and available in various thicknesses and lengths. You could take one that goes just beyond the knee and as you don't need all that fancy stuff like windstopper, fairly cheap ones should be sufficient.
