comment Are Ice grips worth buying
I'd say definitely not appropriate for any type of hard floor surface (cement, hardwood, tile, etc). Slipping on and off is relatively easy, but you wouldn't be able to do it with one hand while holding groceries.

comment What are the most important indicators of an high-risk avalanche zone?
+1 for mentioning the social dynamics that turn a natural phenomenon into a killer.

comment How to get started skiing?
I'd say ice skating is more similar than rollerblading, since it teaches you how to use edges. I had a few years of hockey under my belt when I started learning how to ski and I picked it up very quickly. But both are great since they're less expensive ways to cross train and pick up the fundamentals.

comment How could I treat scrapes outdoors without a first aid kit?
+1 for straightforward, practical advice. Lots of answers on here seem to lean towards random and surprising (honey! spider webs!) but they're usually not actually practical or useful in a real world situation. Good to see things that are simple and straight to the point.

comment Backpacking or hiking in areas open to hunting
I almost always wear my neon orange Carhartt hat when I'm out. Orange is the color hunters usually wear (depending on prey) to avoid shooting each other, so I figure it's a good idea for other outdoorsmen as well.

comment How bad do circumstances need to be before activating a PLB?
The bill for a PLB-induced rescue operation can be in the thousands of dollars. If you're in enough danger that the price tag seems worth it, then you should probably feel comfortable pushing the button.
