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.

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.

comment How to walk as a roped party on a glacier?
I can't quite comprehend the last argument. If on a slight incline a member of the team falls, shouldn't he and all other members immediately self-arrest with ice axes?

comment When should you use gear to climb a tree?
Usually the ground below trees is grass and leaves, not rocks, so it should be somewhat safer that rock climbing. Once I heard from a woman her son fell while brushing walnuts and broke a collar bone. Those trees are about 3-10 meters high around here. On the other hand. just outside my office, for the past couple of weeks, a group of construction workers have been working at 5th floor height scaffold without any protection - also climbing the outside of the scaffolds. The ground is concrete.

comment Ration or consume water?
I agree with all your point (including the last paragraph). Too little water == dehydration == bad, too much water == increased sweating and urination == bad. The body adjusts.

comment What clothing or gear should I wear to prevent ticks?
A shower is a great advice. I tend to find ticks even without a mirror, but by touch. Only exception is when the tick has managed to fully bury, but then it's easy to find, because the place becomes red and itchy.

comment What batteries would make sense to power 12v devices (e.g. blankets, lights) for camping?
I had never seen such a frying pan, but I am sure that it's targeted to car camping. Why else 12V?
