comment Methods for taping injured wrists
Hello and welcome to The Great Outdoors, David! While you might get a good answer here, I strongly suggest you see a physicist or other medical personnel to get professional advice.

comment What fictitious wilderness animals are there as tourist attractions?
I think it is good to know about fictious animals so you can´t be fooled by locals who tell you "to be cautious not to wake the jackalope" or stuff like this.

comment Hot or cold shower better after exertion?
The study you cite is about contrast water therapy. Doesn´t that mean switching hot and cold water?

comment Climbing Mount Teide from sea-level
Hi Lars, and welcome to The Great Outdoors. I don´t really understand your answer - you tell us, your trip was badly planned among others on the time aspect, but you want to do it not only again but add another 1,000m of altitude in the same time? That sounds very strange to me - maybe you could explain why you want to do so and think its not pure craziness.

Wanted to say the same as @David - sea level also varies by location...

comment Leading an inexperienced group
I agree keeping the group in a good mood is one of the most important things. Chocolate or other sweets have served me very well with this.

comment Is a tarp necessary if you have a tent with a rainfly and a footprint?
I don´t agree that pitching a tarp is easier than a tent. I never had problems to pitch a tent, but pitching a tarp in a way that protects you from wind and rain requires some experience or skill. Nothing impossible, but not easier than a tent.

comment Is Paradoxical Undressing a stage beyond Hypothermia?
He not only suffered from hypothermia, but also from a cerebral endema which caused illusions and desorientation in him. Maybe this could be the cause of the undressing?

comment Adjusting the Torso setting for the backpack
@Liam: Normally, for heavier packs (~18kg and above), more than 50% of the weight should be on your waist, not on your shoulders. In smaller packs you might do without them, but for this type of backpack a waist strap definitely doesn´t get in the way, but is essential.

comment Dealing With Sap On A Tent
@Aravona thanks. I was just puzzled because normally this doesn´t drop from a tree without a wound or something like this. The honeydew part of Pauls answer explains this :)

comment Dealing With Sap On A Tent
Hi Dynadin, and welcome to TGO. I have some difficulties imagining what you mean by "sap" or "sap laden leaves" (might me missing english skill on my side...). Could you try to explain that? What kind of tree was it? Do you have a picture of the remains on your tent?
