comment How can you prevent kids getting lost at night while camping?
To avoid strangulation I think it should be made clear that, if you are asking children to wear whistles round their neck, they must not do this when they are sleeping and any cord must have a friable link.

-1 Boiling certainly reduces the viability of bacteria and viruses, but to say "All pathogens will be killed" is incorrect. Most prions and many bacterial and fungal spores are resistant to the temperatures reached by boiling.

comment Best way to illuminate a tent?
+1 This looks much better/safer than my effort of floating one of these tealight candles in a little water in a cooking pot.
