comment Two to four day backpacking trip in Washington State for May
The question is too localized. Rather, it should be asked how generally locate trail maps and information for a specific season, latitude, etc.

comment What are the minimum set of shoes required for hiking outdoors
Concerning your last point - I cannot comprehend why people wear shoes in summer, instead of sandals. The only advantage is the ankle support. And that comes at the price sweated wet feet from noon to evening.

comment What style of camelback hydrating systems exist out there?
Thanks for the advice. I am actually mostly concerned about the "mouth-end" of the hose. The first one clearly has a cover, that needs to be opened with hands. Also I have heard that there are some "bite"-type systems, where there is no cap, but biting the hose enables the water flow. Any thoughts?

@ppl, condensation. Bad, but breathing inside the sleeping bag seems warmer than otherways.

@gerrit, intermittently yes. Rolling around warms a little and being scared tires down.

comment Light-weight emergency overnight-gear
I bring a 5x4 meters thin nylon in the city & the wild. It costs 1BGN < $1, makes for an emergency shelter against cold, plus it can protect a whole group of people from rain!
