comment How to hide a trail turn?
Your idea of civilization differs from mine. In the same field people burn stolen cables to get rid of the insulation, often causing fires. My neighbours throw out construction waste in order to avoid paying for transportation. A couple of homeless people live in those fields. And I'm in a capital 30 minutes from the center.

@Liam, it's a small opening, at summer surrounded by high bushes. I do not who goes there, but the place is quite private (hidden from sight).

Firstly, 4 entirely new tags for a question with 0 upvotes seems over the top, some should be removed. Secondly, @OlinLathrop, I have lived here for some time and never seen authorities in this land. People walk their dogs in the most accessible parts, but never seen cops or workers anywhere around. There are some ruins, lots of thorns. No one cares about this land, until they get a permission for building something on it.

Hey, I couldn't find a suitable tag, thus created "front-country". Was wandering between city parks and that. Please advice.

comment Hiking boot fit: how snug should height of instep feel
Different companies and different models use different foot model, and sizing is based solely on the foot length. Therefore, it might help to try other models or brands.

comment How do membrane-based boots breathe?
@Liam, we were comparing leather and textile. The salesperson explained that leather keeps much warmer, but has no effect on breathability or water proof-ness.

Bulgaria, Europe. They were dark (black?), not white, like in the movies. In number they were about 12.

;-p Come visit Bulgaria some time - we are not so far away and the pund/lev exchange rate is extremely good for you.

comment How to camp in wolf country?
They were actually looking at us and a couple of them grolwed at us. It was not until about 20-30 seconds that they turned and slowly disappeared into the vegetation. I was quite happy not to be tucked in a restricting sleeping bag.

comment Wear a Shirt(and sunscreen) or (just) Sunscreen
I hate wearing a shirt for the sweat it generates (preventing air circulation). IMHO rucksack breathability is nullified by a cotton shirt. Other guys love nothing more than changing to a clean T-shirt.
