comment What kinds of knives are allowed while camping in California?
I'm not a lawyer, and this is not legal advice, but there is precedent which allows for carrying a fixed blade in a backpack. leagle.com/decision/In%20CACO%2020130417044 "The Legislature did not choose either of these alternatives, and for all of the reasons set forth in this opinion, we conclude that "upon the person" does not include a carried or adjacent container, such as the backpack upon which defendant was leaning."

Nice answer... You'll have my +1 in approximately 3 hours when I get my votes back.

I think this information is very helpful, but doesn't quite fit the "quick ways" qualification in the question.

comment What essential items should go in a small first aid kit?
While a cell phone can be critical, it's not part of "A small first aid kit", but should definitely be part of your overall survival kit.

comment How can I prevent plantar fasciitis?
I got some OluKai sandals from REI, and they are by far the most comfortable sandals I have ever had. They are not flat like most sandals, and actually have arch support. That being said, I don't do any extended walking in them, and cannot attest to how they would stand up to miles at a time.

comment How can I make a footprint?
+1 once I get more votes. Good note about melting edges of tarp. If you just cut most tarps, they will fray and unravel.

comment What are the downsides to sleeping in a hammock on a multi-day hike?
That's why you would use something like the hennessy hammock. They come with tarps for hanging above you for bad weather. hennessyhammock.com/catalog/#hammock They even have cold weather tests. hennessyhammock.com/articles/cold_weather_camping

comment How do I prevent blisters in ski boots?
I'm not convinced snow boots are significantly different from hiking boots as far as blister prevention goes. Reduce friction and keep your feet dry.

comment Will a tent provide some protection from bears?
+1 for the psychological aspect. Even if it isn't necessarily safer, you can feel safer in a tent which leads to more rest, etc.

You will never convince me that a spork isn't an essential piece of survival gear!

comment Best/safest wood to carve a spoon from?
Good question, I never considered toxicity of wood in carving a spoon. Sounds like a good excuse to buy a titanium spork! thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/kitchen/8ace

comment Where can I find if a fixed blade knives is legal to carry around in a given country?
Agreed. I also don't think we want to be giving this sort of legal advice in general. Laws have a tendency to change, and there are better outlets for tracking legal issues. They do try to sum them up here. knife-expert.com/sta-law.htm
