comment Buoyancy aids ratings
To add on this. 50N is for sports use, helping with swimming even when you're exhausted from waterskiing etc. 50N to 150N is for use in coastal and inland waters. 250N is for use on open water and can keep you alive even with heavy weather clothing.

comment In Canada, does a frontcountry campground kitchen shelter typically include a freezer?
@gerrit and thats why you always tie a string to the bottle. When at anchor I lower a bottle of prosecco to the bottom of the river (5meters deep), ice cold!

another 'cool' trick is to bury your food (simply dig a hole, insert the food container or bags) you can close it using either a plank or using branches, leaves and dirt.

comment Splitting up weight hiking as a couple/mixed gender group
In all my years at scouting we've always done the same thing: first split evenly, walk a 1 or 2 kilometers and see how everyone is doing, then divide and continue for the day. We often see people complaining the first 5 minutes but as they adjust to it they're fine.
