comment What are the best shoes to cross rivers?
Maybe you could refine on the reasons why you want to wear footwear. I. e. do you just want protection under your sole or all around your foot? Do you want so protection against the cold? Maybe a sturdy sandale would fit you well.

comment Back-up wood and alcohol stove
Thanks for that contribution. Actually, thats what I ended up doing and it worked fine. Still, it needs some finetuning so the space between the alcohol stove and the pot fits well - if its too far, efficiency is bad, if its too small, the alcohol stove keeps turning off. If you have any particularly good DIY-tutorials for this usecase you could share it really would improve your answer :)

comment Climbing barefoot/in toe-shoes?
Hi, and welcome to The Great Outdoors! Thanks for sharing your story. It may be a little to subjective and personal for our site, but I like it in this context. I tried the vibram fivefingers KSO for indoor climbing and found them a lot worse than conventional climbing shoes. but that might be due to poor fitting...

comment How to check if a fence or cable has electricity without having special tools?
Hi, nice answer for this question. Just wondering if it could break the headphones? Often those fences are under very high voltage and the headphones are probably not made to withstand that...

@PeterGreen I wouldn´t be too sure about that. Cats are also a lot smaller, so they have a lower air resistance. However, their body is a lot better in absorbing falls than human bodies, so this might be the point.
