comment What clothing would be suitable for hiking and camping in 0°C?
Aside from the cotton pants, that seems all right, though you may be a bit chilly in the mornings before you get moving. After hiking 15 minutes you'll be taking things off, even at -10, if the wind isn't too bad.

comment Sleeping in an inflatable boat
@nsn Outdoors is still in beta, and we can't choose beta sites as a migration target. (A moderator could but no moderators were involved here.)

comment What are the consequences of — illegally — using a 446 MHz PMR in the North American wilderness?
@fgysin A radar return is actually a quite weak signal, compared to what goes out. Though I expect the band will be pretty much unusable if the radar is active.

comment Is it possible to 'moisture trap' from trees while thru-hiking?
Most places you would find such trees, you would also find more than sufficient water as to make the exercise pointless.

No, but if you were within line of sight of the base, or even a couple of days' hike, I wouldn't try it.

You should also mention mosquitoes.

comment How can I keep my iPhone going on a multiday hike?
When traveling well-established trails I've generally found GPS to be completely unnecessary. It wouldn't even occur to me to enable it unless there was some sort of emergency.
