comment What's the best way to dispose of a body in the backcountry?
@Mark The question did not indicate whether we're talking about a chipmunk, a human, or a moose.

comment What's the best way to dispose of a body in the backcountry?
@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.

comment Cycling in Ontario — do I need to worry about permission to access logging roads?
Would you know if there is an easy way to find out access rights before getting there? If a certain 30 km stretch of logging road has unambiguous signs prohibiting entry to all, a detour might be 200 km, which is not optimal if I have a train to catch. I'd need to find out who owns the road.

comment Cycling in Ontario — do I need to worry about permission to access logging roads?
It's not really cycling specific, is it? I would assume it is the same for any non-motorised traffic access. I actually started writing it on Travel.SE first. It fits on all three of those. Let's see if I get answers here. If not, I might flag for migration.

comment How to stay hydrated with minimum water usage
@Wills Warm air contains a lot more water than cold air. 100% RH at -20°C is 6.4 * 10^-4 g/m³. 100% RH at +20°C is 1.5 * 10^-2 g/m³ — around 20x times more. That's why you can see your breath when it's cold outside, even if it's try — the humidity is too much for the air to contain.
