Is it a kind of Marseille soap?

comment How to deal with aggressive homeless when exploring urbex?
Maybe I should change 'urbex' to the 'cave' and than it will be on-topic?

comment Effective technique for crossing high and dense mountain pine
Thank you for interesting in The Great Outdoors, but I'm afraid your post doesn't answer my question, because it doesn't deal directly with the issue of crossing the mountain pine bushes.

comment How to deal with aggressive homeless when exploring urbex?
I've asked on meta, is geocaching on topic, or it should have a separate site. If geocaching is on topic, than the whole scope of geocaching should be on topic, if not, it needs a separate site (which doesn't make a lot of sense). Urbex questions cross-topic with survival (urban survival) and parkour. Creating a lot of separate sites wouldn' make much sense with such a large cross-topic area.

comment Urbex question: How to protect myself from asbestos?
I would say, it's as off-topic as questions about speleology, caravaning or mountain huts. Taking things not so literal, I can't think better SE site for such questions as that. Just note, most questions on StackOverflow doesn't have mucht to do with stack overflow...

comment How to deal with aggressive homeless when exploring urbex?
The questions should be on topic because it's about issues with geocaching, which is on topic.

comment How to deal with aggressive homeless when exploring urbex?
Fortunately, I haven't met aggressive ones, but I've heard of geocachers threatened by aggresive scrap-collectors (probably thinking they have to deal with rivals, or hidden police agents). Useful answer: how to talk with them to rescue the situation. Offering cigarettes is the option that comes into my mind, but I'm not sure how it practically works.

comment Color vision deficiency a dead end for mountaineering career, as an athlete?
Why actually? In night, everyone sees monochrome. I can't think any situation climbing would be an issue. Yes, being mountain rescuer would probably be an issue, because they would have problems seeing red or blue clothing...

comment Taking only the part that I need from OSM to my Garmin
Well, it's working, but I've copied the data to both /Garmin and root. I don't know which is correct, I don't have energy to make that today :P I'm a bit disappointed how it looks like, on Android (Locus) it looked much better I think, but it's important it's working...

comment Taking only the part that I need from OSM to my Garmin
Yeah, I was redirected there from geocaching forum, but someone forgot to write you should select that option, and the clicking on the map has done nothing :P I was fighting with it for a moment, really long moment :P

comment How safe is it to hike alone?
+1 for avoiding drinking houses. -1 for suggestions that laws doesn't apply in the wild and you can kill people without consequences., and the false sense of security given by the axe.

comment Stability and ergonomics of Garmin Etrex 20
Are there any videos showing someone reading caches on that device? I don't think I can try it in shop because it would have to have cache descriptions loaded....

They are probably aluminum thermoses. Makes sense in that case.

Well, power lines are c.a. 5 meters above, so unless you're a giraffe, it's no way a real danger.

@Liam only if electrified in form "third rail". Traction is not a danger for tresspasser.

comment Buying a Backpacking Knife
You could elaborate a bit what reviews have you read and what attributes you've taken into account. It's a Q&A site, so we expect answers to be more descriptive.

comment How to assure safe searching for cache hidden in my own backyard?
You know you've given me some idea. You could place some 'strange' monument in your backyard, so the people would come and take shots of it, as a camouflage for searching.
