comment Are headaches a bad sign at altitude?
You're all right. Denver is a mile high, around 5-6k feet in altitude, and I've heard of older people who live in Florida, who have been told by their doctors, that if they go to Denver, they'll die. Of course, this was just one person I heard of, but you get the point.

revised What is the recommended wilderness first aid treatment for a scorpion sting?
No need to emphasize the federal land closure, it dates the question. It is more timeless if you just keep it quiet and talk more about the environment. Carry on!

comment Is playing musical instruments like Harp/Harmonica, Flute unsafe during backpacking trips?
interesting point... I would venture to say it is safe. Never heard of anything like this - and I'm quite familiar with the great outdoors.

I'm curious why you think musical instruments would be unsafe? Are you worried about attracting wildlife or?
