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 :)

comment Apart from down, is there any outdoor material that should not be stored stuffed?
Furthermore, I have heard that membranes can "break" if folded to the extreme, hence don't wash in the washing machine at high speed.

comment What are some mortal dangers in temperate woods?
Olin, I find your answer highly sensible, practical and down to Earth. In a context of bushkraft and mountaineering, it would be far more useful than the wiki answer. I, however, accept the wiki answer, as I need this information(a bunch of ideas, actually) for a game.

comment What clothing would be appropriate for hiking in -18°C with up to 30 km/hr wind?
I think rubber boots are very bad choice for long hikes anywhere. My experience: after 4 hours in the snow, my feet were wet. Temperature - around zero. Socks - single layer of thick wool socks.

comment Is buying an expensive sleeping bag better?
I had a similar experience like you once. I believe at the morning I had first degree frostbite on the toes and fingers (and frost on the sleeping bag, 10C in the day drops below zero at dawn). Those $10 bags are for the beech.

comment How do you fashion a spear with a fixed blade
I concur. BTW it is strange how many videos and web pages are out there, detailing in length how you should sharpen a stick. lol

comment How to set up a tent in deep snow
Unfortunately I will not be able to accept and answer before snow falls and I go try it, to see if lying on the snow is colder than lying on cold ground.
