comment Is it safe to drink out of rusty thermos?
I was able to use a lot of baking soda, a little water, and a very sturdy bottle brush to get the inside of my thermos sparkling clean. It took a bit of work, but it got the job done.

comment Is it safe to use a motorcycle helmet instead of a skiing helmet for skiing?
Not directly addressing the question, but There are several companies like Bern, which make multi-sport ski/bike helmets. If you do both sports you could get a helmet that can be multi-purpose.

Also, there's an adapter to make any airtite bag a pump. cascadedesigns.com/therm-a-rest/accessories/neoair-airtap-pump/…

comment Should I worry about moisture in my inflatable sleeping pad?
I thought about building an adapter for use with my bike pump in case I needed it, since most of my backpacking is really bikepacking... crazyguyonabike.com/doc/page/?page_id=163597

comment How much waterproofing spray to apply to my softshell jacket
Unfortunately the bottle, nor the website for Nikwax mentions any measure of quantity or method of application.

comment What to look for in a durable, 3-season sleeping bag?
One thing to consider is when you will be doing most of your camping. My 20 degree bag is way too hot for most nights, and generally overkill for the conditions which I tend to be in. If I were doing it again, I'd get something like a 40 degree bag or 50 degree bag and wear an extra layer while I sleep if the bag temp is not warm enough. Being enclosed in a tent also increases the temperature slightly, so I could easily get away with a bag with less insulation than my current setup.
