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?

Could you include a picture or link in your answer? I am not sure what "Thermos" is.
