comment How harmful is the rising/setting sun?
Just be careful at the higher altitudes. A couple of hours before sunset, above 2000m can give you second degree burns (I have seen it happen to the ears of a girl; and it become apparent after the fact, not during the exposure).

In my experience, stomping a fire has much much larger effect than pissing on it.

Have you had any success with large apertures in low-light conditions?

comment Rapid backpack readying
@Steed, They all work to an extent. Problems with the first one include: 1) For longer trips, a larger pack is needed, involving moving all the equipment 2) I use the backpack also when biking in or around the city, so it has to be light AND include bike-specific equipment. 3) The same heavy survival kit, which I bring when going in the wild, is not quite suitable for 1 day hikes. Why would I need extra food, extra knife, extra bandages, space blanket etc.

comment How do I self arrest without an ice axe?
I wonder if striking with elbow in order to break the hard icy cover of the snow would be a good idea.

comment Putting in contact lenses when outdoors
@LBell, I think your comment is the best answer here! Monthly contacts are great, and I am not aware of any disadvantages to them. Just new technology at the same price :)
