comment Is there National Park-equivalent protected nature in the United Kingdom?
I'd say that the new forest is not really protected in the same way, i.e. trying to keep an area wild. This is effectively just a different type of management (commoners have been allowed to farm the new forest though out this period pigs and ponies are still farmed in this landscape). The US national parks were the first attempt to make a place "wild" (though there are arguments that this is un-natural in itself as the native americans had been using this land for millennia before modern americans decided they wanted it "wild")

comment What to look for in hiking shoes?
I think this needs narrowing down, a list of everyone's preferences isn't a useful resource going forward. There are many types of shoes for many applictaions, terain, etc. A question asking abut specifics would be much more usful, e.g. For x type of terrain what types of shoes, should I be lookng at, etc.

comment Is it a good idea to grind Esbit fire tabs?
that'd likely help, but you'd want it to be quite tight. The evaporation would still happen until the air in the bag reached it's saturation point. that's why the bag it comes in is sealed quite tight to the hexamine.
