There's an exception (or several) to every rule, @Mapperz.

comment Trail gun for protection against bears
I've always felt there are too many factors to bear spray as well - such as wind or etc. That said, guns are unpredictable as well - those in serious bear country would do well to carry a rifle. Handguns are all over the map, and like many said, the recoil is much harder to manage.

comment Preventing hand blisters while paddling
@WW., nhinkle: it will develop on whatever your primary hand is- you typically pull harder and a little differently on your dominant side than your other side. Some people are SO dominant on one side, they have to paddle more on the non-dominant side. I've seen it among beginners quite commonly - circles are extremely common especially if you have two beginners in the same kayak.

comment How to get weather forecasts at Yellowstone?
EXCELLENT answer actually - the NPS and other agencies' visitor centers, etc. are quite good about posting forecasts and such, I can speak from experience.

comment How to get weather forecasts at Yellowstone?
Extremely low cell coverage in YELL. Also - just because it's in the Rockies automatically means the weather changes on a dime. So I have always put little stock in the weather forecasts. And I live (literally) in the shadow of YELL.

comment GPS navigation device or app that allows entry of UTM coordinates?
I really, really like the Garmin GPSmap units, have used them extensively at work with UTM coordinates, you can input them and track and such, they will do exactly what you're looking for.

comment How can I contact emergency services in the US via the internet?
Wouldn't have thought of aspect - though one thing to keep in mind is that those numbers may not always be monitored 24/7. Most will and are, though. +1!
