comment Add more external space to my ACT Trail 32
I have some experience with hanging my boots that way. Unfortunately, the shoelaces elongate during travel and the boots kick me in the butt on every step! I guess a carefully fastened bag won't have such a problem. I hope you have webbing on the bottom of the pack, to connect the bag to. You can use a rope there, to fasten it firmly and prevent swaying.

comment How safe is it to hike alone?
As far as I understand, these comments are condemning assaulting someone in the wilderness. Why would a hiker want to do that?! My point is that if you are the victim, calling the police while in the woods is much less effective then in a city. The police is not there to protect you, at the moment of the attempted crime. Dyh!

comment Why is a “Czech bed roll” called this? History, uses?
Interesting indeed. I have the USA one. Very warm, extremely heavy.

comment Effective technique for crossing high and dense mountain pine
Qick half-answer. Usually in summer I carry a long staff instead of trekking poles. When going through dense brush, I use the staff to push nasties away from my face and hands, by holding the staff at an angle in front of my body.

@Łukasz웃Lツ, why would it be false sense of security?

comment Hot or cold shower better after exertion?
I believe that having a cold shower at elevated body temperature (e.g. after strenuous activity as summer) could be lethal. Can't be sure, though, no one that I know died this way.

comment Roping together on an icy path?
If you are even considering this as a danger, get an ice axe. It's a very useful and long-lasting tool for the winter. This New Year's eve me and a friend used ours to get into the frozen-up shelter, which we reached after dark. So they have other uses, beyond the essential self-arrest ability.

comment How to assure safe searching for cache hidden in my own backyard?
I like the hide the way you allow entering your garden part. It the garden has high fence of vegetation, neighbours won't see what's happening inside, and the secret way to open the door can be told to the "few".

comment How to estimate is the branch thick enough to stand on it?
@ŁukaszL., yea, one can step on pretty darn thin branches like this, provided the above safety points are observed. In the end the struggle goes from "how do I not fall to my death" to "how do I not brake any branches on this lovely tree."
