comment How can I prevent animals from marking my camp as their territory?
Raccoons or other annoying animals may be interested in your air freshener and try to open up your tent to get to it. This may leave your tent with a largish hole in it.

Air fresheners seems like a very bad idea in the backcountry. Seems like this will encourage big, dangerous animals (bears) to investigate your tent. This could even be a problem, while you are in the tent if you use something especially smelly.

comment Commuting by canoe
@Jeredepp - How do you store you boat? Do you bring it to work? Do you lock it up (in the water? Out of the water?).

This is one of the best written questions I have ever seen on stackexchange.

There is no reason to use two anchors. Can you provide any justification as to why two are needed?

Why do you want to use a tent? Wouldn't a trailer work better?

comment Caveats of dual (propane, liquid) fuel stoves
What on your stove is leaking? MSR sells a repair kit to replace all the seal on the stove.

comment Can I mix fuels when using the MSR whisperlite international stove?
Don't try to store gas in a plastic bottle. Gas can dissolve some plastic.

comment What precautions should I take to protect myself and my camp from bears?
What is the point of the counter balance method? Why not just throw rope over, pull up food and tie off one end? This is what I have always done and I have never run into any issues. Is there a reason this is not suggested?

Question: Why does the type of bear matter? You said that we should recognize the difference but why?
