comment Can you tell if a plant is edible by watching what animals eat it?
Another good example is deadly nightshade, or any other plant containing atropine. Many animals (rabits, cattle, goats) can eat it, but just few leaves or berries are likely to kill you.

comment Commuting by canoe
Cool! Do you ever have fog on the lake? If you do, you may want to add a compass and some sort of fog horn to your equipment.

comment How can I keep my backpack safe?
Not sure what would an alarm like that achieve. Any thief will just slice open the backpack, take anything that looks valuable, toss the honking rest of the pack down the nearest ravine and disappear long time before you get back.

comment Keeping smoke level in a wigwam low
@berry120: There is a fire burning in the middle of the wigwam. It is still rather cold and showy around here, and without fire the wigwam would be too cold to stay in.

comment Where in Europe is wilderness meeting the U.S. wilderness definition?
I am not sure about the exact definition and classification, but as far as I know, lot of areas that are called "wilderness" in the US have vehicle tracks and paths in them, forest service access roads, fire access roads etc.

comment What is the benefit to telemark skiing?
I believe that Telemark style is used when your boot is not atached to the ski at the heel, only at the tip, like for example with cross country skis.

comment Are 35mm film canisters safe for holding spices?
We used to half fill these with soda, add some vinegar, quickly close them and toss them. Then there is this: scitoys.com/scitoys/scitoys/thermo/thermo2.html
