I agree with this - however do buy boots. Well-fitting boots make a lot of difference to your enjoyment and ability (more so than skis at this level), and ownership frees you from hours sitting in a rental shop trying to find a pair that really fits you.

comment When should you carry a firearm when hiking/trekking?
However to balance that out, the number of deaths due to bear attacks in the whole of the lower 48 states, in the ten years 2000-2010, is...3!

North American wildlife is significantly more dangerous than European. Bears, wolves, coyotes, lynx, mountain lion (and in the right places, alligators) are all fairly common. I don't believe that changes the answer though.

comment How to get a top-mount cooking burner for 20 lb propane tank?
What is your reason for wanting a top mount? If you are going to haul a 20lb propane tank weight can't be an issue. Why not take a separate stove?

comment Sailing with an infant
Punting on the Cam isn't exactly a challenging water-safety environment. The bank is never more than about twenty feet away, and much of the river you can stand up in.
