comment What are the first aid precautions to be taken in case of a snake bite?
@Unsung, the idea is not to die of cold/thirst while being blind, vomiting and weak. Id est to reach it easily.

comment I am looking for a two way radio/device with constant contact
@gerrit, it's a gamble. Read the users comments - they are always truthful (or at least good-intended). And you are correct - the items there are not to be relied on, but insane deals do show up. E.g. I got a quality hobby boxing gloves for 1/2 of the price of the cheapest, provided locally. And, free shipping.

@gerrit, dx.com, madeinchina.com etc. are a series of large Chinese online-shops with questionable quality, low prices and free worldwide shipping. Shopping there is close to gambling :D

comment Is playing musical instruments like Harp/Harmonica, Flute unsafe during backpacking trips?
@WedaPashi, I believe they hear through skin and bones (and a google search on "snake hearing") confirms this. Still no idea if this would work :(

Why would you go to the woods without a small axe or a sturdy staff?

comment How can I keep my backpack from resting directly against my back?
This technology has been recommended to me as superior (it is present in many marks of backpacks). I haven't tried it, though, my backpack uses the technology mentioned by Rory. A key point is not to wear cotton clothes underneath - either carry something breathable or go naked from the waist up.

comment An x-hour hike. Is that to the peak/summit or back and forth?
I have always seen the opposite - e.g. 3.5 hours from the hut to the peak. Or 1 hour from this intersection to the next hut.
