comment What precautions are needed for caving
As a mod, I support this question - sure it is a bit broad, but why not have some general advice for caving?

comment Consequences of crossing rails when looking for caches?
Not sure what you mean. Are you not allowed to cross the railroad tracks in Germany? That seems unusual to me, but I live in rural America.

comment How to dry paddling gloves
I personally would stuff them with newspaper and/or "prop" them open so that plenty of air gets in there.

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.

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?

comment Do bear-safe rules still apply in the winter?
This is a little misleading. I live in an area where it is commonplace to hear of bears killing people... It happens all the time around here, especially in the spring. Bears really do hibernate.

comment What fps does a bow need to hunt moose?
I've seen moose multiple times in real life, in the wild. They are huge. You don't want to mess with one, cow or bull.

comment Canadian Law with respect to knifes
I downvoted because this question felt not constructive - as in not a good fit for our Q&A style here. But that's me personally, I've left this question for the community to decide.

comment How to prevent skin cracks?
As Rory Alsop said, this is not an answer, link only answers rot over time. Please expand your answer to perhaps include a summary of what the link says?

comment How to set up a tent in deep snow
I would recommend being down in the snow, at least to some degree, for insulation purposes AND using a good insulation pad like what @LBell recommends above, those two combined would work well in high wind, cold situations. edit: just noticed xpda said something similar. :P

comment Campsites in Virginia which allow alcohol?
I deem this too localized, and the fact that it doesn't have answers after 11 days all the more proves that. Perhaps try searching Google/Bing/Yahoo?
