@baldric Yeah the bigger Kelty packs work fine for that age. Definitely try on a few if you can.

comment What do you do if the fire does get “out of control”?
It's worth mentioning, since you mentioned shovels, when digging a line for the fire, always push in or toss the dirt you dig up in to the fire. Yes this will give it some grass to burn and some dirt to smother, but it will reduce your risk of embers being outside and the fire jumping the line you made.

Funny, I live in a desert, and I have never heard "Cotton Kills" this is probably why.

comment What are examples of inappropriate places to hide a geocache?
I like the question and the information it seeks, but I'm not sure it's appropriate for this site. The answer could be an unending list and pretty subjective. I'm not sure how to edit it to get the info you seek and have it be specifically answerable.

This answer would be better if you could add a bit about what the shoes do to improve this ability, or any experience that you have with them. Welcome to The Great Outdoors S.E.

comment Performance of fur garments?
I really think this should be two questions. The first question will have a decent sized answer, and the second question is two questions and either will draw a rather long list. (Not to mention this S.E. could really use more questions/day.)

comment How to prevent skin cracks?
Welcome to The Great Outdoors S.E. That site does have some good information, but as the others said a paraphrase would help. Even just copying the bold lines of each point would be enough.
