comment Overview of free and open huts in Norway outside the system of the official tourist association DNT
@RafalZiolkowski DNT huts (manned or unmanned) are more luxurious, require a fee, and if unmanned, a key. They do also have basic shelters, though.

I finally ended up for a somewhat heavier Hilleberg instead.

comment Any sites/apps for sharing and rating hiking/hillwalking routes?
I was going to close this as a duplicate of a question I asked years ago, but mine got closed as off-topic. Either way, there's Everytrail, Wikiloc, and many others.

Ah, I solve that by eating lots of nuts.

comment The re-hydration time for deydrated foods
Cost-effective? When outdoor meals are €1.60/meal, how can one save significant money on such a tiny part of an outdoor trip budget? For the money I spent just on getting to and from the trailhead for my last big hike (Toronto to Canadian Rockies), I can get buy hundreds of outdoor meals.

@Mark The question did not indicate whether we're talking about a chipmunk, a human, or a moose.

@djechlin That's one of the reasons why you need to start with carrying everything up to the area where only rocks and ice remain. The other reason is that this means no vegetation is damaged.

@djechlin Let's remove animals and plants from The Great Outdoors then, for violating leave no trace.

I've always understood leave no trace to mean there should be no trace after you finished whatever you're doing. Clearly as long as you exist you are observable in some way.

comment Shoulder season backpacking near Whistler (early June)
Sure, I don't expect to be alone so close to Vancouver, I just meant that if there is one trail that is super-spectacular with 90% of the crowd, and another trail that is slightly less spectacular with 10% of the crowd, I tend to go for the latter.
