I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

with your cooking clothes, do you leave your clothes at the “kitchen”, walking to and from your tent naked / in special clothes?

Did you sleep in huts or in tents? That matters a lot for gear...

Which Haute Route? Summer on winter? There are many variants.

comment I am looking for a two way radio/device with constant contact
@Vorac Wow, I didn't know things could be so cheap. Perhaps not something one would want to rely on...

comment What alternative topographic maps exist in the USA?
@Mapperz Cool. Are those available as printed, folded sheets? And is the background just USGS data, or all information available on the topographic maps (and hmm... if USGS data are public, why doesn't Openstreetmap simply copy it? Licensing?)

comment Trekking in Mongolia without a guide?
A friend of mine hiked in Mongolia without a guide. In fact, he hiked (and partially cycled) all the way from France to Mongolia without a guide. They had a tent, but also tried to enjoy the hospitality of private people, who often invited them into their homes (which could be a yurt).
